My friend here at work used my computer to write this rumor. He was just kidding. Sorry about that I have RedZone up all the time on my computer and talk about it a lot. With all the trade razz going around he throught it would be funny.
I explained to him...not funny....not funny...

Rumor Thread:

“Giffrey, Baily and LaRue for Oakland's Zito and Street....According to a source close to GM Billy Beane"- This was from a SportsTalke AM station out of Oakland.

lets see what happens.....this is going to be an interesting day.

I believe someone is throwing stuff against the wall to see if it sticks. Hoghly doubt that. A's would never do it.

Krivsky would never trade Bailey for Zito, a half year rental. This would kill the offense taking away Griffey anyways, Krivs is smarter than that.

Thursday's Contra Costa Times said a "team source" confirmed that the A's had made a "formal trade offer" to the Mets, prompting Beane to go on a rant of sorts on the validity of such sources.

"Let me make this clear," Beane said. "Whenever you see something about us that says a 'team source' said something, you can safely assume that it's a bald-faced lie. There are no 'team sources' here. There's me and there's David [Forst, Beane's assistant GM], and that's it. And we don't talk about what we might or might not be working on.

"With the Mets or Yankees or some other teams, you might have these 'team sources' who'll know what's going on and maybe leak something. But we don't have that here. It just doesn't happen.

Trading Griffey would kill the offense?

This is news.

Probably nothing to do with this rumor, but ESPN has a Trade Deadline showing running now through 4, and just went to commercial break.

The "Tease" was that after the break Olney will discuss Krivsky and the Reds last minute possible dealing.

Need to be careful about keeping yourself logged in on websites or even email for that matter. I used to work with a joker who used to send mass emails on co-workers' accounts, declaring that person's affections towards another or something else stupid. Surprisingly, that person didn't get fired.

Thanks for the heads up. I usually lock my computer when I leave. At any rate all all people I should know not to leave it unlocked...considering I workin Marketing and IT.

Sorry.:bang:
