Pirates Beat Writer Puts ESPN in a Body Bag After They Beg Him for Video


This is starting to become all too common in regards to ESPN asking to use things via social media.

Pittsburgh Pirates pitcher Jameson Taillon is slated to return to the mound on Monday after a cancer scare, and beat writer Stephen Nesbitt was right there to get an exclusive on that return.


ESPN saw the video and wanted to know if they could use it to run it on their platforms.

That’s when Stephen Nesbitt put ESPN in a complete body bag and told them where they can get that video—from fired baseball reporter Jayson Stark.

Game. Set. Match.
