Top Cards on Twitter 2019: (Most of) The Write-Ins

Back in October, I put out a little form getting feedback from those that spend time on Twitter.  I wanted to find out who the best follows were, the people that make that experience worthwhile.  This isn’t a new question, of course.  I’ve done this now for five straight seasons and the responses just continue to grow, which makes for a better result.  This year continued the upward trend of people that aren’t completely driven crazy by my continued “hey, have you voted yet?” posts.

So in five years this thing has grown 531%, which is just amazing.  Thanks to all that participated and if you enjoy these results, it’s only because so many took the time to go through an ever-increasing list of names and thoughtfully give their opinions on those Twitterers listed.

Enough rambling, though.  You want to see how this turned out.

Our form had 172 names on it.  That’s a lot of names, but that’s but a dent in the great people that make up Cardinals Twitter.  I can’t know everyone, so I left it open for others to fill in names that weren’t included on this list.  And boy, did people come through!  We have 42 names that were written in.  Many were just written in once but some got a little more support.  In fact, two of our write-ins surpassed some of the names on the list!  That’s for the next post, however.  All of these names will be added to the list next year, so as to get a more fair shot at moving up the ranks.

JohnRedbird is one my favorites to discuss not only Cardinal baseball but Star Wars with.  Anyone that can understand both of my languages is pretty cool in my book!  I’ve not interacted with many of the others here much, though you could see how an account doing polling would be great on Twitter.  Doesn’t look like he’s done much lately, which probably means Brendan Schaeffer told him to stay off his turf.

I love the fact that The Stan Musial Society, a Washington DC Cardinals fan group that I have read about in baseball books, has joined Twitter and is involved, especially when the Cards and Nationals get together.  Jeff White and JMcGeeSports were regular #cardsix players over the last year, though it looks like the latter has shut down his account, at least temporarily.  Redbird Nerds is a new account this year and already has started to make a name for himself in Cards Twitter.

I believe master48bader is now badermvpszn, so you might look for him there.  I really have no idea how Colin Garner slipped through the cracks–he’s a Conclave writer, for goodness sake!  Hopefully he and Kyle Reis can get back to Prospects To Be Named Later soon.  Couple of folks on here I couldn’t find, which may mean they have changed their account or I misunderstood the write-in.  Lots of the great women of Cards Twitter in this section and I look forward to having them on the main list in 2020!

And finally we come to the end of this group, the only write-ins (save the two mentioned earlier that will be in the next post) that received multiple write-in nominations.  Nice to see the game growing across the pond and our British friends getting some love here.  Brad Range is one of the hosts of The Musial Suspects, who did an excellent job of sharing this with their audience, for which I’m very grateful.

Next time, we’ll get into those that were on the form and start working our way toward the top!
