Fake twitter account? even though verified Lester follows him?

i cannot imagine the Sox trading him to tampa. I can't imagine them trading him period.

Pete Abe went out of his way to post that it (the twitter account) was for real, FWIW, though that wasn't enough for me not to use the question mark.

Half the team and a bunch of beat writers follow him. It seems legit. WTF indeed.

Here, FWIW

I can report that @adriangon28 (Adrian Gonzalez) and @MikeAviles3 are the actual guys.


I don't see a way to edit thread title... dopes?

It is hilarious how Abraham confirmed it was real...... then AFTER this he says he confirmed it was fake today. Just, awesome.

He texted fake Aviles and said, "are you Aviles" and they replied, "yes". He did his due diligence to confirm authenticity. It wasn't until later, when the, "nah, I'm just screwing with you" text came that Abraham realized he had been had.

But this makes me like Aviles a little bit more.

A few #RedSox people thought that account was real, as did several of the players. It's not. Again, @MikeAviles3 is a fake.


And I suppose if Jimmy jumped off the Sagamore Bridge, then Pete would jump off the Sagamore Bridge

Aviles, however, quickly shot down the rumor when reached by WEEI.com. "I don't have a Twitter account," he said. "My agent is looking into starting one, but right now I don't have one."

I hope your agent does a good job, Mike, it's really a pain in the ass getting one going.

Abraham is getting his ass kicked daily by the Herald and especially by Gordo. He's lazy.

And that makes him the perfect successor to Cafardo.

Pete would jump off the New Bedford/Fairhaven bridge, Sagamore would be too much an effort.

Is there a decent list of baseball types to follow somewhere?

This is my list of people in the Red Sox organization that I know of on twitter: https://twitter.com/#!/RSN_Alberta/current-red-sox/members
Includes the verified accounts of Lester, Ortiz, Bailey and more, as well as several prospects (Kalish, Westmoreland etc.), most of those aren't verified.

This one has former Red Sox: https://twitter.com/#!/RSN_Alberta/former-red-sox/members All the way from Remy, Eck, Clemens to recent ones such as Reddick.

It turns out somebody was impersonating Aviles on the social network. “You really need a life if you’re impersonating me,’’ Aviles said. “I had no idea what was going on.’’

There's a list of verified MLB twitter accounts somewhere on MLB.com, but I can't seem to find it.

Edit: It's a decent list: http://twitter.mlblo...ers-on-twitter/
