Also read: "Logan Morrison is the Marlins' tweeter-in-chief."

On Thursday afternoon, Miami Marlins outfielder and social-media savant Logan Morrison saw something at a local Nordstrom's that shocked him to his core. No, not a two-for-one sale on Calvin Klein underwear. He chanced upon a mother breastfeeding her child in public. And for some reason, this nourishing practice as old as time itself led LoMo to go to his favorite outlet, Twitter, to share his confusion and disgust with the world.

He even included a blurry cellphone photo he took of the mother and child, in case you wanted to be as aghast as he was.

As expected, Morrison's tweet drew some reaction from his 118,000 followers, mostly along the lines of, "You actually took a photo of a woman breastfeeding?" In particular, Jay Jaffe of Sports Illustrated took Morrison to task for being a lout.

LoMo's response was dignified and constructive. Wait, no, it was neither of those things.

Morrison and Jaffe engaged in a less-than-inspiring back-and-forth before Morrison eventually tried to clear up his breastfeeding stance.

In the end, Morrison decided that all the breastfeeding brouhaha wasn't worth it and deleted the original tweet and his followups. (Though interestingly, he left up his spat with Jaffe.)

We reached out to LoMo (via Twitter, naturally) to ask why he'd scrubbed the tweets and if he'd gotten any backlash, but we have yet to hear a response. We'll update you if he does get back to us.

Morrison's gotten in trouble with the Marlins before for his Twitter-happy ways, but so far, there's been no word from any Miami front-office executive about his latest foot-in-digital-mouth moment. Presumably, Jeffrey Loria and David Samson are too busy stripping Marlins Park for spare parts to sell to the Russians or trading everyone who has a pulse to comment on Morrison saying something outlandish.

Assuming Morrison escapes Loria's trade-deadline scythe, he and the rest of the Marlins will take on San Diego this weekend at home. If LoMo does get traded, he'll just have to hope that he gets sent somewhere a little more prudish than Miami. Maybe 19th-century England would be a good start.

It's disgusting, anti-family and misogynistic bullying for Logan Morrison to post that mom&baby pic without their permission! He's entitled to his neanderthal opinion, but posting that pic OF HER CHILD and OF HER BODY went way too far!!! This is along the lines of 'slut shaming', but it's 'mommy shaming'! He's a sick bully and emotional terrorist to try and HURT that woman and ALL breastfeeding women that way!!!  You NEVER NEVER NEVER take a pic of someone's BABY and post it publicly without permission, and you NEVER NEVER NEVER take a pic of a woman's uncovered body/parts without permission!

305carolann: If breastfeeding is to be private, then it must be sexual to you. So if breastfeeding is sexual, a bottle is a dildo!

one more thing... Without Petey and  Lomo,  the Miami Marlins will be just another boring baseball team... so keep spewing it Lomo!

Lomo - I am a woman.  I breastfed both my kids and I agree with you completely!   Bottle in public.  Breasts in private.

This guy is a huge douchebag...and apparently from all I have read he sucks at baseball just as much as he sucks at life.

women hating? i love women, im hating on "public breastfeeding" learn how to read or maybe your last brain cells are coming out in your salty milk so shut up soccer mom

Listen, Donnie, if you ever manage to find a chick you don't have to slip roofies to bang, or realize that your woman-hating is latent homosexuality, and find a partner in which to have a child with, I hope your child has plenty of breastmilk to drink, because its properties of adding IQ points are definitely going to be needed to combat your obvious genetic failings. Have a good night trolling the internet, honey. While I shut in with the loving warmth of my babies and fiance, the latter of which, will enjoy my star tattoos and whatever is under them secondary to his gorgeous healthy son, and ne'er the twain shall meet.

Lmao. Dishes? Sandwiches? Haven't you gotten the idea yet? I feed from the tap! No fuss no muss. Just extra time to put my feet up and take adorable pictures of my baby's perfect latch...

I organized one in 2007 for the woman kicked off a delta flight. Nurse in, anyone???

You should organize a breast feeding rally. I can just see it now. Hundreds of breast feeding women gathered together on his front lawn.

How about a Marlins game? :)

It's natural. I don't see why it's an issue, especially to the point of disgust. To me THAT'S weird!

The problem is that most women are ashamed to breastfeed in public because they know others feel this way...so nothing changes! People will continue to be ignorant, and ignorant women will still feel embarrassed. Women who are proud to breastfeed in public need to keep doing what we're doing!! Veezie - we should meet up one day and nourish our children together in public!!!

N what would you do if Luiso Olmos, who you subscribe to, had a cover photo, profile picture, and wall photos all which show more tit by double than the average nursing mother??? Cos she does. Breasts and babies go together like fucktards and "i love house music" cover photos. Lmao!!

They would arrest you for a false alarm. Breastfeeding, including exposure of the nipple in the process, is protected by law... Guess what??? If you can masticate in public, I can breastfeed in public!

If i see a girl public breastfeeding, i would call the cops on her for public exposure...

I will certainly not breastfeed in a restroom. Bet he wouldn't eat a hotdog in a bathroom!

I can't help but wonder if he would have been happier to see someone sucking on a part of the male anatomy.

This is without a doubt the most ridiculous thing I've heard in a long time. I can't believe the ignorant attitude of this guy. How old is he? I really don't care. I just can't believe that in all of his life he has never seen this before. Breast feeding is the most natural thing in the world. Women have been doing it since before human beings even had clothes to wear.

Stare away... Don't be mad that I am pretty sure the sex offender registry is missing a name.

If the innocent act of a baby nursing at its mothers breast offends you or excites you to the point of staring, maybe you need to do some soul searching.

Ok, next time I'm staring at your boobs don't get mad! Maybe he saw ugly boobs, yuck!

I plan on breastfeeding my baby & I will proudly feed him/her whenever & wherever duty calls! If someone doesn't like it, look the other way =)

Breasts and babies go together like d-bags and popped collars!!

Public restrooms? Was that a joke? I don't believe people actually have the audacity to suggest feeding a baby in a restroom. If you don't want to see it don't look, or just get over it, breasts are meant for babies.

Veezie Lu

Funny how men still think our breasts belong only to them for their sexual enjoyment and ridicule any other use for them. If a woman went into spontaneous labor and began pushing a baby out of her vagina in Nordstrom's, would you also suggest she take it to the can??

If you're so fond of eating in a bathroom, you do it! MY kids however are gonna eat right out in public like the rest of us. The lady in the pic showed NO boob, far less than, say, any actress on any magazine or in any ad.

I want to see public breastfeeding. Of every baby who is hungry. Where ever they might be. Because its normal and awesome. There is a common trait among 100% of people who have a problem with breastfeeding in public: they are ignorant hypocrites.
