Weekly Hypothetical: pick any current or former St. Louis athlete to join Twitter.
Undoubtedly, the St. Louis Cardinals have an exciting young nucleus of players (and supporting cast) that embrace social media.
On the field, there’s David Freese (@dfreese23), Jon Jay (@jonjayU), Jason Motte (@JMotte30) and Daniel Descalso (@DanielDescalso). Off the field, there’s Cardinals Media Relations Specialist Chris Tunno (@TunesSTL), lead photographer Scott Rovak (@scottrovak) and Busch Stadium DJ Damon Oliver (@damonoliver). And that’s just to name a few.

Thankfully, we’re going to identify these gaps in this week’s Weekly Hypothetical.
