not really a big surprise or a big deal. instagram accounts are run by 20 something memers. so even if it’s the “mlb” it’s not what most of us would have imagined when seeing “mlb” since it’s run by a young cool hip PR team. you’re probably all picturing this gigantic organization, the mighty MLB, so hip and so cool they make jokes just like regular poor folk am i right. which is just their advertisement
every fuckin day these accounts are posting multiple pictures of “would u rather have trout/ohtani or stanton/judge? comment below xD!” type posts or those over the top flashy fonts of players saying EPIC things.
it all feels like a big hello fellow kids thing but that is the audience, after all. it just doesn’t ever feel genuine to me, feels so calculated.
