This James Shields to San Diego thing was pretty much just like this for a couple days in a row.
My phone would buzz with each exciting new tid-bitty tweet from some baseball expert/writer/tweeter.
It's a pretty silly way for a grown man to live, but whatever.
And this isn't sour grapes - I'm happy Shields didn't come to Chicago and in turn the Cubs having to give up any talent down below.
No you can never have enough pitching, but if the season started right now I'd be pretty happy with the rotation (even if it scrambles in my head what it could actually be).
But back to the tweeting.
I mean, that gif is pretty accurate for how news comes out in regards to a baseball transaction, right?
It's like a science.
Almost like... one guy thought it up.
Not to be a conspiracy guy or anything, but has anybody ever actually seen.. like.. Buster Olney and Dave Kaplan and Keith Law and BP guys and Trade Rumor guys - the guys who do all the expert tweeting - in one room together?
I mean, I've seen them individually, but come on - you totally know they could actually be all the same guy with some pretty good make-up and different twitter handles.
Wouldn't be hard to do.
Am I nuts?
Well... think about it.
