Each week in Major League Baseball brings a different set of storylines. Last week's heroes can become old news overnight and last week's goats can become trending topics in a heartbeat.
The storylines also involve rumors, speculation and at times not so good clubhouse news. That's the beauty of baseball—which with each set of games every night there's never a dull moment.
The 2013 MLB season thus far has certainly been anything but dull. Perfect games have almost been thrown, no-hitters broken up at the end of games and former stars have resurrected their careers.
In every case, whatever the news is, it creates its own separate universe that exists and thrives courtesy of social media and the web. A story that may have taken days to grow and materialize as little as 20 years ago now takes literally nanoseconds to find a huge audience.
Each takeaway from game action in baseball is important both for fans and us media types who spit out articles ad nauseum about the ramifications and consequences of each piece of action.
But because of modern technology, we have the ability to drone on and on about whatever happens. And in MLB, the action is never-ending.
