It is coming at the worst possible time, too, as there could be a deal for a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) in the next day or two.
MLB fans need Passan’s timely tweets and bits of useful information about the lockout and CBA talks.
The Players Association is waiting for an MLB counteroffer, after it was widely reported on Thursday that both sides agreed to postpone talks about the international draft with a July 25 deadline.
The Baseball Universe Needs Passan Covering The Lockout
Passan is, quite possibly, the best and most reliable reporter for breaking news in the baseball universe.
Fans, and people in general, are reacting to the hacking of Passan’s account, and everybody is collectively hoping that he can recover his entry details in time to follow what are looking like the last hours of the MLB lockout.
Some fans are contributing their usual share of humor during this messy lockout, saying that Passan getting hacked was the only thing that was missing so far.
Jeff Passan's Twitter being hacked is honestly such a great chapter to whatever book gets written about this entire mess.

Thankfully, reliable reporters such as Chelsea Janes, Ken Rosenthal, Evan Drellich, and others have been picking up the slack and keeping people informed during the last few hours.
However, just as the baseball world needs a new CBA deal agreed to by tonight, or at least this week, it would also be useful if fans had access to one of their most reliable sources of news at this particular time.
The timing is awful, but here is hoping the MLB insider can recover his account soon enough.NEXT: MLB Has Figured Out A Giant Roadblock To Ending The Lockout
