MELKY, Melky, Melky seemed to take over the Bay Area media zone, with good reason. It's a big story indeed, not just a Giants event, but indeed a news event. And it received predictable play, from the radio talk shows to internet sites, chat rooms, TV and beyond.
When the news first broke, Gary Radnich informed Giants radio PBP guy, Dave Flemming, who sounded shocked beyond belief. To Radnich's credit, the interview with Flemming was solid--to hear Flemming tell him, "please, tell me more", upon receiving the news, was engrossing and revealing.
I asked Dan Ashley, the lead anchor of KGO-TV, if the Cabrera story would lead the evening news. He said it probably would. It did. And actualities from the ballpark were the centerpiece of everyone's story play. With good reason.
The story will probably resonate heavily today on the talk shows. The Giants have a day off. Wonder what topic might light up the lines.
