Ryan Webb wins over O’s fans with great Twitter Q&A

tweet feed about baltimore orioles

Newly acquired relief pitcher Ryan Webb has been an Oriole less than a week, but he seems to have made a lot of fans already.

Webb, who had a 2.91 ERA in 66 games with the Marlins last year, was out to eat in Cincinnati when he decided to have a quick Q&A session with his followers on Twitter.

As we soon found out, Webb is a very funny guy and it seems like he doesn’t take himself too seriously.

Here are some of the highlights from Webb’s question session.

Going from a new, fancy ballpark, Webb seems excited to pitch in one of the greatest parks out there.

He knows his role as a reliever and that he may not be the most known person in the MLB and showed that he isn’t expecting to be anybody’s favorite player.

Webb seems to be excited by his opportunity to play in front of a fan base that gets behind their team and supports them. The Orioles potent lineup grabbed his attention as well.

The newest Oriole was looking forward to pitching against a familiar face; too bad he’s not in the division anymore…

Seems like he enjoys interacting with the fans as well as keeping them on their toes with some comic relief.

It seems like this hard throwing righty will fit right in with the jokesters out in the bullpen. I predict there will be some pretty good pranks going on out there.

Although he sports a 0-9 record as a closer, he seems willing to accept any role as long as the team is winning.

We hope this is the first of many new faces we see at Camden Yards come April.

Welcome to Charm City Ryan!
