This my perhaps my favorite MLB Trade Rumors post ever. It regards Mark Teixeira:
2:38pm: Tim Brown and Gordon Edes talked to involved execs (not with the Angels) who believes the Boras camp is “using the media to ratchet up the price beyond what any team had actually offered.”
Whoa, whoa, whoa. You mean an agent might say something to a reporter that isn’t true in an attempt to make more money? I am shocked. Next thing you know, it will turn out those girls in high heels and too much makeup smiling at everybody at the Bellagio aren’t just being friendly.
