Bob Dutton's Greatest Twitter Hits

 

For reasons unknown, the Kansas City Royals and their fans are blessed with one of the best beat writers in baseball. Bob Dutton has been covering the Royals for the Kansas City Star since 1987, so he knows more of the ins-and-outs of the Royals better than just about anyone else – IF there even is anyone else.

If you have doubts about this, you can listen to an interview he did with Kansas City Baseball Vault at the beginning of the season. It’s fantastic.

Recently he has taken his domination to Twitter. Maybe it is the winning or maybe he is on just one of those professional rolls, but in the last few days Dutton has been on a roll when dealing with the craziness of twitter. You can ask Danny Duffy about the oddities of Twitter, so doing what he is doing is not an easy thing.

Dutton has to walk a fine balance between reporting news, interacting with readers, and having a personal voice while keeping his sanity. I don’t envy that job.

For proof of his recent domination, here is a round-up of some of his better moments from this week. (Note: You can follow Dutton on Twitter here – @Royals_Report – and his work for the Kansas City Star here.)

YOU DON’T LIKE ME AND I DON’T LIKE YOU

It isn’t really that Dutton doesn’t like people, but of late he has had little patience for people with people who are not bringing coherent thought to the table.

GRUMPY DUTTON

(Note: The picture of Dutton at the top of this page and in all of his tweets is the picture he is referring to.)

SNARKY DUTTON

Snarky Dutton may be my favorite version of Twitter Dutton.
