Welcome back to Twitter Tuesday, folks. In the comments, I'd appreciate it if you could voice your opinions on this little segment. Do you like it? Could you do without it? How can we improve it? Let us know. Also, vote in the poll.

Now, on to our top tweets of the week. I did my best to include as many player tweets as possible.

Tweets this week cover June 21st - June 27th.

Tuesday, June 21st:

A tweet from Donnie Collins, talking about David Phelps' bizarre inning.

SWB Yankees Blog

That is the strangest inning I've ever seen. Phelps faced 7 hitters. All 7 got hits. Two pickoffs and a baserunning mistake are the outs.

Mark Teixeira likes The Office. He gets a kudos for that one.

Mark Teixeira

I get made fun of on team flights b/c I watch The Office and laugh out loud! Big night of TV and sleep tonight, talk to you guys later.

Ah, the good old days, when pitchers had no regard for their arms.

Old Hoss Radbourn

Ah yes, a double-header tomorrow between the Yankees and the Reds. I am sure the starters relish the opportunity to toss 2 CGs each.

Wednesday, June 22nd:

A tweet from Josh Norris, discussing something I'm sure WWJD will love hearing.

Josh Norris

In an interview in HS in NC, Rob Lyerly was asked to name the toughest pitcher he'd ever faced. His answer? #Yankees prospect Adam Warren.

Hah, John Lackey. Thanks for this, Brandon.

Brandon C.

Watching John Lackey pitch certainly helps heal the pain!

A tweet after Boone Logan got Joey Votto and Jay Bruce out. I didn't believe it either.

Jeff Quagliata

Boone Logan puts little more distance between him and a bus ticket.

Thursday, June 23rd:

I'll be the first one to tell you that I am not a fan of Andrew Marchand, so I was surprised when I thought he made sense.

Andrew Marchand

A guy like Wandy Rodriguez - and I'm not sure HOU would trade him - is not too exciting in AL East. Prices will be high too.

I was surprised, too, Mike.

Mike Ashmore

Fairly disappointing Futures Game rosters for Yankee followers, no? No Banuelos or Betances? Only one NYY prospect? All right then.

Would you expect anything else from Swish? The guy could have fun anywhere, let alone New York.

Nick Swisher

Ain't nothing better than an off day in New York.

Friday, June 24th:

David Robertson is a really, really great guy.

David Robertson

Tickets to my event next week are on sale here highsocksforhope.com/events I'm really looking forward to it!

I'm assuming Joba went to see "Cars 2" with his family.

Joba Chamberlain

1st one was WAYYY better in my opinion!

A tweet from what might be my favorite Twitter account.

Faux John Sterling

Suzyn, did you see the fan with one arm catch a foul pop?! Only one arm, and he still catches better than Cervelli!

Saturday, June 25th:

Maybe Josh Norris really wants to see Adam Warren in the Bronx?

Josh Norris

Adam Warren's last four starts: 29 IP, 16 H, 2 R, ER, 8 BB, 23 Ks #yankees

If healthy, where does CC end up when all is said and done?

Jeff Quagliata

CC moves into sole possession of 82nd place on the all-time strikeout list and is now the active K leader among LHPs with 1,878.

Sunday, June 26th:

I'd shake his hand for this... well, maybe if it was just Papi.

Old Hoss Radbourn

Ah, Old Timer's Day. I once went back to Boston for such an honor. Beaned three old 'mates and cuckolded another for old times' sake.

I can't believe he's 37 years old either.

Chris McKeown

Happy birthday Derek Jeter. 37-years-old today... unbelievable

Couldn't agree more, Dan.

Dan Hanzus

Having NL teams face Rivera is almost unfair. Best way, really only way, to beat him is through repetition. That's why he's the G.O.A.T.

Monday, June 27th:

Doug Mittler, where do you and your four-letter network friends get your facts from? Speaking of Jesus Montero:

Mike Axisa

"There has been a decline in production since [the Lee non-trade]." Before the deal: .312 wOBA. After: .433 wOBA

Don't get used to it, Dante. He wont be there for long.

Dante Bichette Jr.

It's awesome how my favorite player is at the fields with us everyday. And he remembered me from when I went to arch a game. Jeter's the man

You better duck.

Moshe Mandel

Yankees should sign Mitre *ducks*

Finally, a fourth tweet on the last day of my coverage. I really only decided to use this one to ask if you guys think Old Hoss Radbourn is actually Dwight K. Schrute, because I'm starting to think that's the case.

Old Hoss Radbourn

Yes, that's right: on page 627 of this Dodgers bankruptcy filing it indicates they owe one C. Radbourn a box of cheroots and a new spittoon

After reading it, all I could picture was Dwight handing Angela all of her things back, as well as their "contract." Unlikely, but it's kind of funny to think about.

Also, the Ledger Yankee's twitter picture is now of Sergio Mitre. Yikes.
