    “It happens every trade deadline, but this one has been brutal,” said his exasperated son.

    If you went by Dennis Solomon’s Twitter feed on Thursday, you’d think that the Minnesota Twins were the new home of Aaron Judge, Kris Bryant, and a significant percentage of the Baseball Prospectus Top 100 Prospect list. You’d also be profoundly misinformed.

    “Pops gets fooled by the internet a lot,” said Ryan Solomon, Dennis’s son. “I had to unfriend him on Facebook because he kept sharing posts that were either profoundly inaccurate, riddled with malware links, or both. His Twitter feed is mostly just benign retweets of sports reporters or replying to Stephen A. Smith telling him to shut up. It’s fine. But on draft days or trade deadlines, he really lets his guard down. This one has been brutal.”

    The retired school administrator retweeted fake baseball news from Ken R0sentha1, JeffPa$$an, P@trick_Reusse_, Mi11erStrib, and danhayesML8 on Thursday afternoon and evening. While most were simple retweets, at least two were quote tweets with “Typical Twins” and “I’d trade Buxton for a bucket of balls, let’s go!” attached.

    “I’ve tried to get Mom to hide his iPad on big sports news days,” said Ryan. “She won’t do it because it keeps him from bothering her about the coffee being too strong or speculating that the kids playing in the park down the street are Antifa. I guess I understand, but geez Louise.”

    Although the elder Solomon could not be reached for comment, his son says this is not isolated to Twins baseball.

    “I think Minnesota Vikings training camp started this week,” said Ryan. “If my dad doesn’t retweet RealAdamShefter saying that the Vikings have traded Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook for Aaron Rodgers, I’ll be legitimately worried for his health.”

    Ryan, you are missing out big time by not investing in B1tc01n and D0gec01n. Contact me for details.

    Yeah, me and my 8th grade classmates being forced to study Art Appreciation had a good laugh when we contemplated paintings of Venetian doges. Funny word, funny clothes. We probably learned something from the experience but I have no idea what, except a bougie ability to name a painter or three. It certainly did not prepare us for important 21st century concepts like memes and cryptocurrency.

    So, more Weebl and Bob than Danny Kaye, in my limited media consumption:

    And just to be clear, we don't have to make room for Aaron Judge or Kris Bryant on our 40 man roster?

     

    It would be a travesty to lose Astudillo or Cave.
