Sounds like an all sports version of SNL’s Weekend Update. There, it would be funny. But on the official Major League Baseball Facebook Pages, not so much.
Yesterday, these kinds of posts appeared on a half a dozen official MLB Pages and fans assumed it was the work of a hacker with a grudge against baseball. Turns out the posts were loaded by an authorized Page admin who went “rogue.” The person in question wrote the posts as a joke and says they were never meant to appear in public. He also told Deadspin that the ones that went live weren’t even the “best” of the lot. Then he basically blamed MLB Advanced Media, saying, “Access to all 30 MLB teams’ Facebook pages is put in the hands of employees making less than living wage.”
