No official word yet on whether this Twitter account really belongs to Greg Maddux, top-10 greatest pitcher ever and lovely-Christmas-sweater-haver. We hope very much that it is real.

It's been sporadically active since December, first confusedly tweeting at Maddux's daughter, but its existence only blew up today after it got the @MLB seal of approval. (It's worth noting that the MLB Twitter account is a never-ending stream of terrible baseball-related memes. We'd actually trust Twitter's verification service more. As @31gregmaddux says, he's "just waiting for my blue check mark!")

If only he'd tweet at our other favorite former Brave on Twitter.
