the biggest news of the past 12 hours


This 166-word news story was posted on ESPN.com yesterday at 8:30 pm EST.  Below is the screen capture from this morning:

Joe Morgan has finally gone viral

Check out these numbers: 7,741 facebook shares, 778 retweets, and 1,336 comments all within 12 hours.  This is the most vibrant discussion of baseball Joe Morgan has ever facilitated.

Of course, Joe Morgan probably doesn’t believe in the statistics associated with this story.  The reason it’s provoking discussion is that it’s an old-school news story, solid and respectful of the game of journalism, which travels the wires the right way and plays hard and reminds him of a news story from back when he was with Cincinnati.
