Someone else will have to step up as our token "insider". It's just more fun that way.

It would probably be best if whoever knows something not make such a huge deal about it. Tony hears things, I occasionally get a heads up about something ... mostly from people in the media. Listen. There are players who post here, family that posts here. Waiters at Italian restaurants, people who work for Peter Angelos. Even the guy whose mom works at the airport. The people who make such a huge deal about being on the inside are usually fraudulent. Sorry to burst the bubble. We do have rules here. You can't just lie.

How do I keep missing things? So it turns out MI was simply a Twitter vulture, as alleged?

One last thing. Jim Johnson did not know he was being traded. People at the vice president level for the Orioles did not know he was being traded. But there was obviously talk in the background about how this might all transpire. Certainly Jim Johnson did not hear about this in the press.

Well, maybe even a little worse. Seemed like a well to do, well connected, young man. One that talks with players on twitter. Yes. Probably even someone who has been on a field a time or two. He plays baseball at school. I expect that he was at Adam's Tailgate. Probably for free. His family is well to do.

But, it was blasted on the internet from multiple sources that the Orioles were actively shopping Johnson to the highest bidder.

You don't think that Rosenthal hears things from legitimate sources? The problem with those source is that they usually have a reason to want to read what they have leaked through that source. Like I say. Buyer Beware. Sometime they try to trick you.

Tony says he is.

What people forget about, is thing like IP addresses, and when things come in from more than one person with the same IP, pretty hard to dispute that. Not, that I am saying thats what happen with Mikey, because I don't.

But, he wouldn't have been the first person in any chat arena that tried to do this.
