Jon Heyman: instant legend.
Everyone's favorite Arby's-loving MLB insider broke the Jed Lowrie-Mets news earlier on Thursday, but got a little too hasty in declaring the news to the world, dropping a Mers Bomb in the process.
Sources: Mers agree to two-year deal with Jed Lowrie.— Jon Heyman (@JonHeyman) January 10, 2019
Of course, when you break news, you never delete news. Mers was stuck.
And the world rejoiced.
M-E-R-S! Meet the Mers! Come greet the Mers!— Matt Daiker (@MattDaiker) January 10, 2019
Mers sounds a little bit too much like MRSA for my liking, but hey, that's incredibly Mets too, so there you go.

You didn't have to go there, but you did, so we'll allow it.
Mets probably pissed they missed out on him to the Mers— Duke and Boy Show (@dukeandboy) January 10, 2019
This reminds me of the classic "Moops"/Moors debate of '93. The Bubble Boy is all in a tizzy over this.
Mers, wow, we have 5 expansion teams now John. The Angrls, the Mers, the Yankrls, the Dodgrls, and the Cubrls.— Ebu, waiting for spring training (@TheRealEbu) January 10, 2019
Heyman out here saying, "I can't wait any longer, I'm just going to do the MLB expansion myself." Bold call, let's see if it pays off.
We've all had our fun, but really, Heyman, do a quick check of the thumbs before you post anything. As of now, you're swiftly becoming the new Bob Nightengale.
