Are all a complete joke

No one knows what goes on behind the scenes and this only makes things worse when the deals fall through.

Terrible terrible terrible.

So much credibility lost tonight.

There are a few very reliable people, but in general, they suck.

Heyman and Rosenthal are very solid.

The rest are terrible. I can't believe anything until I see the man in uniform.

I wish they had a better system than using damn twitter.

Heyman has good sources. Horrible analysis. The best Heyman anything was when someone made a fake Heyman account saying the Phillies traded Bastardo, Gload and two specs for Grienke. Tons of people ran with it

:laugh2: Thats gold.

A good buddy of mine sent me a link a few years ago telling me the Sox acquired Cliff Lee for Michael Bowden.

It was on mlbtraderumors and spread all over the internet.

Someone had hacked the website and people were pissed.

how is it anyone's fault if the cubs just decided to pull the deal last minute?

Because there was still a last minute. Nothing is official until the commissioners office has signed off on it, that's when it should be made public.

Yeah, when they use confirmed, it's their fault. If it isn't confirmed, don't say it is.

I asked a guy who writes for a website and supposedly has sources, who he heard it from or for anymore info and he told me to stop following him on twitter haha.

who cares? twitter has made it more fun to follow beat writers and baseball rumors, its the guys version of gossip tabloids. Even if its a fake news we run with it and enjoy it.

Rumors will get leaked some how. Peter Gammons,Buster,Tim K.Jason Stark and so on are good.
