Tweet of the Week

Honorable mentions

But this was kinda weird. While looking for the above, I found a Tweet saying, "I would love to hate Paul Goldschmidt but I can't. He's a total professional and an exceptional talent.

Is this some kind of Twitter spam, trawling for favorites? I mean it's nice that @AsianEscortYNi thinks so highly of Paul, I suppose....
