Cubs: Five things to do without baseball; Coronavirus edition
Chicago Cubs: Twitter still works amidst coronavirus pandemic
If you don’t follow Yu Darvish on Twitter, it’s time. While you may have to translate many of his tweets, he’s quite the personality. Same goes for a now-division rival, Trevor Bauer, who is a bit more controversial, but still an entertaining follow most of the time. Heck, he even set up a Wiffle ball game for charity amidst all the cancellations and angst surrounding this pandemic.
If you haven’t set yourself up on Twitter, get an account, follow some people (like all of your favorite CubbiesCrib writers, for instance) and take full advantage of one of the most potent social mediums out there. @Jomboy_ has been a baseball sensation over the past year, going from a guy getting blurbs from players last spring training to one of the biggest follows throughout the Astros sign-stealing debacle.
Follow all of the Cubs players (Darvish, Ian Happ, Javy Baez, all of the Cubs writers, (Jesse Rogers, Patrick Mooney, Carrie Muskat, and Sahadev Sharma to name a few) and keep up to date on videos, information, and tweets directly from the Cubs and MLB. People, including celebrities and ballplayers alike, might just get back to you in the coming weeks with all the time on their hands and no baseball to be played.
While it’s undoubtedly a runner-up to following real games, reports on real games, and the beginning of the regular season, perhaps the players and sport can still keep you entertained on social media. And, if all else fails, you can foray into the realm of politics and conspiracy theory with a slew of others in the Twitterverse.
