Odrisamer Despaigne takes selfies with a bird

Jake Roth-USA TODAY Sports

Did you know that Odrisamer Despaigne has a Twitter account? He only has six total tweets so far, and half of those have been retweets.

But today he stepped up his Twitter game with a couple of selfies featuring... a friend of his.

I LOVE this. Presented without comment or explanation. Why would it need one, anyway?

But then it got better...

Despaigne has worked all Spring long to prove himself worthy of the Padres' fifth rotation spot. He pitched in five games (three starts), totaling 17 innings of work. He gave up six runs (four earned) and collected 11 strikeouts. According to Corey Brock, the team may not even make a decision until after the breaking of camp. But if you ask me, Despaigne and his buddy have made a pretty good case.
