Evan Longoria is not impressed with MLB promoting Snooki

More Twitter fun. Last night MLB promoted some “Jersey Shore” Snooki tie-in thing in which that Snooki person will be at the Mets game tonight:

Rays third baseman Evan Longoria saw that and asked a good question:

I’ve looked it over several times, but I see nothing in MLB’s social media policy that requires players to be on board with their taste-impaired promotions, so I guess Longoria is safe. In addition to being right.

Report: Momentum in talks between Mariners, Jon Jay

MLB.com’s Mark Feinsand reports that there is some momentum in talks between the Mariners and free agent outfielder Jon Jay.

Jay, 32, hit .296/.374/.375 in 433 plate appearances with the Cubs last season, which is adequate. He’s heralded more for his defense and his ability to play all three outfield spots.

The Mariners are losing center fielder Jarrod Dyson to free agency and likely don’t want to rely on Guillermo Heredia next season, hence the interest in Jay. The free agent class for center fielders is otherwise relatively weak.
