More and more professional athletes are taking to twitter to interact with fans or just to translate whatever passes through their mind into 140 characters.
While the loss ofwas a far greater blow to the Brewer’s twitter community than their performance on the field, the team still has a robust twitter presence.
Each week, we’ll recap that presence, covering the good, the bad, and the ugly. For now, there’s a ripe harvest of off-season tweets to highlight.
Chris Narveson isn't just into one sport; he's been soaking up the NCAA basketball tournament, and like most people, probably grimaced watching Louisville's Andre Ware's leg split in two.

Martin Maldonado was certainly getting a little antsy waiting for the season.
