"This is a baseball hipster series, a series for very online baseball fans, ones who might have been tired of the Dodgers and Braves and hungry for new blood. Manny Machado and Bryce Harper are far more popular on Twitter than among normals. (I can say that, I’m part of the former group.) The specific builds of these teams speak to the success of going out and trying to win, certainly a conversation that happens more online than it does off."
