Mayhaps I could axe you the same queery?

Sports site the Dugout has become known for its hilarious fake transcripts of baseball players chatting.

This one features hard-throwing pitcher Kyle Farnsworth's bizarre spelling and slang as he "chats" with his manager Trey Hillman and hefty Yankee Joba Chamberlain. It's pretty insane and nonsensical, which is why it seems like the way actual players would chat.

Farnsworth and all-caps shouter Jim Thome are probably two of the most popular Dugout chatters.

The Dugout has been doing the fake chats for a while now, and its creators have expanded into music as well as baseball. This site catalogs all the baseball chats from over the years. A 2007 archive is here.
