Tweet partings: Tigers bid Will Rhymes farewell

Using Beatnik Ramble Rhymes, it spit out…“in she bid Tigers Zelter mighty to see the likes of thee, and oh!  The smell, the smell, the awful smell!”

But an October editorial comment on Twitter Rhymes authored during the Tigers-Rangers playoff series probably eliminated any chance he would join Ryan Raburn, Ramon Santiago, and Danny Worth in a bid for second-base work in 2012.

During that Oct. 8 game against the Rangers, Rhymes, who was not on the playoff roster, disagreed with manager Jim Leyland’s decision to pinch-run Worth for Santiago.

“I turned the game off when Danny ran for Santi,” Rhymes wrote on his Twitter account.

“They are the same speed, at best. Very confused. I’ll check the box tomorrow.”

Dave Dombrowski, president and general manager for the Tigers, made little of Rhymes’ punditry when asked about Monday’s decision, although he acknowledged: “I don’t think it was something that you’d recommend a player to do. But it didn’t have anything to do with our decision.”
