Tweet of the Day: Do NOT breastfeed in front of Logan Morrison

133 Comments

Logan Morrison was just chillin’ at Nordstrom today when he encountered something he was not pleased with:

Those damn moms,providing essential nourishment for their children. Just appalling, really. The worst kind of people.

Because he’s awesome, Jay Jaffe called Morrison out for being boorish and retrograde about public breastfeeding. Which led to this response:

So apparently you gotta play in the bigs before you can all a guy out for being a jackwagon on the internet. Who knew?

Look, baseball players: I’ll make it easy for you. That “you’ve never played the game” thing may have validity to it when it’s in response to a writer saying stuff about how to play baseball.

Your exalted status as professional athletes does not provide you any claim to the high ground, however, when you’re out in the world, commenting ignorantly about everyday human events.  In that arena we are all equal.

MLB extends Roberto Osuna’s administrative leave again

Major League Baseball announced on Monday that Blue Jays reliever Roberto Osuna has had his administrative leave extended again, this time through May 28. Osuna’s administrative leave was extended last week. Two weeks ago, he was charged with assaulting a woman on an off-day.

MLB is investigating the incident. Most likely, Osuna will be suspended and fined, which can happen whether or not he is convicted at his court appearance on June 18.

Prior to the incident, Osuna accrued nine saves with a 2.93 ERA anda  13/1 K/BB ratio in 15 1/3 innings. The Jays have lost eight of their last 10 games and one of those two wins was a walk-off, so there haven’t been many save situations. Tyler Clippard was the last Jay to record a save back on May 9.
