BRADENTON, Fla. — Good morning from the BFKMF (the Ballpark Formerly Known as McKenchnie Field). The Pirates will have full workout here today, followed by the “Pirates Chopped” cook-off contest, then its full-speed ahead into the Grapefruit League schedule.

Chatter

Chris Stewart put up his first-ever social media post last night on Infield Chatter. “The first of many,” Stewart said with laugh. The post was a photo of him and a girl named Anya, whom he met last season at PNC Park on Cancer Awareness Night. Stewart recently found out Anya lost her battle against the disease and wrote: “To my fellow ballplayers ad fans all over the world, with all the day to day stresses, I pray that we all remember the important things in life. Smile a little more, and light up the world. God bless.”

You'll probably start hearing a lot about Infield Chatter, an app developed by the Players Association. There are a lot of players already posting, including Andrew McCutchen, Gregory Polanco, Jared Hughes, David Freese, Trevor Williams (of course) and Steven Brault.

Twitter

I'm a huge fan of Williams's Twitter feed, which is often hilarious and occasionally thought-provoking. But, I'm going to have to find a substitute in a few days — Williams told me he's considering giving up social media for Lent.
