Derek Holland and Derek Law? You can call them Dragon and Nighthawk now
Buckle down San Francisco, the Dereks are coming and they just became best friends. New Giants teammates Derek Law and Derek Holland went to WWE Monday Night Raw together earlier this week and recreated an iconic photo from "Step Brothers."
Well @sfgiants @dereklaw64 and myself have finally decided what we should be introduced as. Meet the #doubleDs #derekandderek thanks to @wwe for allowing us to use their backdrop for our new wallpaper. We were inspired by the original step brothers. #weretheonestheycallderek #thenewprestigeworldwide #investorspossiblyyou #nailedit #derek1derek2 #welookbetterontv #smilesfordays #futuretagteamchamps
Yes, it's a little upside down that the main bad guy in "Step Brothers" is named Derek and these Dereks are portraying the heroes of the film, but we'll let it slide. Time will tell if these two pitchers will ask Bruce Bochy if they can turn their Spring Training beds into bunk beds to maximize space for activities.
Here are some other social media highlights from this week:
D-backs reliever and prolific triple-man Archie Bradley points out that while Arizona missed out on J.D. Martinez, their signing of Jarrod Dyson fills the hole left behind.
You thought you were excited about the Giants picking up Tony Watson, one of baseball's more dependable left-handed bullpen arms? Well Mark Melancon's children say hold my apple juice.
- Angels outfielder Justin Upton is using some soul-soothing slow jams to stay relaxed during Spring Training.
Pun tweets are always encouraged; pun tweets that are about twitter even more so:

Fortnite is the hottest new video game craze, and professional baseball players are especially hooked on it. Unfortunately for Twins Minor Leaguer Thomas Hackimer, not everyone can be money on the sticks.

Hello everybody, my name is Tom, and I have a problem. I'm a minor league baseball player and I am absolutely terrible at Fortnite
Nothing to see here, just D-backs pitchers Zack Godley and Andrew Chafin riding horses through the streets of Scottsdale, Ariz.:
Kenley Jansen's cutter can be downright painful for hitters sometimes, but this goes way beyond that...
