Ian Desmond playing Twitter matchmaker for Michelle Beadle

(Jonathan Newton/The Washington Post)


The Nats seem to have a knack for Twitter love connections. Last season, Gio Gonzalez caused an Internet riot when he tweeted his need for a date to the Nationals Gala. And this week, Ian Desmond reached out to Michelle Beadle to tell her he had a friend interested in meeting her.






Man, Desmond definitely has some good Twitter game.

Today he made a virtual introduction between Beadle and Ali Modami, the Nats’ batting practice pitcher.




So awkward, yet so awesome.
