Top Cards on Twitter 2022: 21-25

If this was a road trip, home would be getting close and we’d be clicking off the miles until our destination.  We’ve got 25 (plus a couple) folks left to examine.  The Top 25 get a little more detail, so sit back and keep your eyes on the mile markers.

As noted by her pinned Tweet, this was a good year for Rachael and a small addition to that goodness is her first finish in the Top 25.  Rachael’s a die hard fan who brings plenty of opinions to her timeline, which is almost 100% about the Cardinals.  Lots of good stuff there both in and out of the season!

If there was any proof needed that we do this thing straight, it’s the fact that Tito’s in the Top 25, which I’d never put him in.  This guy has the worst Star Wars opinions, folks.  It’s just a fact.  Beyond that, though, he’s a great guy, passionate about his heritage, loves his Cardinals, and can give as good as he gets.  Sometimes.

Tara’s not been on Twitter quite as much as of late.  A new marriage will do that to a person!  Still, she’s still got plenty of smart things to say about the Cardinals when she can find the time to be online.  If you don’t catch her there, you can catch her regularly talking about the club on Gateway To Baseball Heaven with yours truly.  Tara’s quite the creative and I wish she had the time for Bird Seeds and things like that!

Polo is the Spanish voice of the Cardinals, bringing passion and excitement to his broadcasts with Bengie Molina.  It’s not surprising that the Spanish broadcast has grown to cover more and more games given what Polo brings to the table.  His infectious personality shows up anytime he’s on camera and it comes through on his Twitter feed as well.  If you are unilingual like me you might not understand all of it, but somehow that doesn’t matter one bit.

Tito and Joe in the same post?  What in the world did I do to deserve this?  There’s no doubt that Joe has been very effective at analyzing pitching, even though life has kept him from doing much of that over the past few years.  He’s also got strong opinions about the team, which makes for an interesting timeline.  He’s another one I enjoy giving a hard time to, mainly because he grew up in a house big enough that it was converted into 40 apartments when it was sold.

That’ll get us through the first 20% of our Top 25.  More to come this afternoon!
