Esquire profies Logan Morrison and his tweeting:
Fans love him, because at a time when robotic, overhandled athletes try to keep their adoring fans at a distance, Morrison is doing a stage dive. There was a Facebook campaign to get him on the All-Star team this year, and after his demotion his Twitter support ballooned.
I tried to reach Morrison — via Twitter — after his demotion, but predictably he fell silent. One thing didn’t change, though: With or without Morrison, the Florida Marlins are baseball’s forgotten, irritating franchise, with no fans, no history, and, annoyingly, two World Series championships in the last fifteen years. He’s as frustrated with the very concept of the Marlins as they are with him. At the end of our conversation — he was in New York to play the Mets — I asked him if he had to fly back to Florida after that night’s game. “Yep,” he sighed. “Back to the ********.” It was the kind of jab he’d throw on Twitter. No way the front office is gonna shut him up. N
