Normally a spring training home run would be worth a bucket of warm spit, but when it’s hit by a guy who merely showing up, taking ground balls and hitting singles has literally been front page news this spring, it is a bit odd for it not to go commented upon.

As the Daily News notes, the Yankees’ Twitter feed is not run by a team employee — which, seriously Yankees? Join this century — but rather, an MLBAM person. Who, somehow, wasn’t aware that half of baseball Twitter was talking about A-Rod’s home run yesterday afternoon.
The story says that “the issue” — though it does not say what “the issue specifically was” — was being addressed and would be “rectified going forward.”
