**I'm back home after my one-day jaunt to Iowa. As you may know, I used Twitter to put up some comments on players during the game. I have to admit, I really don't like Twitter. I find it very difficult to limit messages to 110 characters. I found it very distracting to use it during a game, and found myself unable to concentrate well enough to take the scouting notes that I normally take during a game. I think Twitter has the effect of truncating thought, sort of like Newspeak in 1984.
I will continue to use it to let people know about article updates, but right now I don't like the idea of using it to post updates during games I am watching. But that's just my own initial reaction. I would be interested in knowing if any of you followed the Twitter feed during the game and found it useful. If you did, I will reconsider my negative Luddite reaction.
**At noon today we will be introducing a new logo and color scheme for Minor League Ball. It is based on the old one, but a bit less 2005 in appearance.
**Game Notes from yesterday will follow shortly.
