    Rumors Sources

    I know a lot of people claim to have Source's and post trade rumors. My question is who are the reliable ones and and which rumor came true?
    Enquiring minds gotta know.

    Big Donkey was one I think. Brooklyn Red I think just to name two off the top of my head.

    I don't claim to have a source, but where I work we had a drug overview program to introduce our new drug policy. The father of Rockies pitcher Aaron Cooke was one of the guys introducing the program and he has a picture of his son in a slide show. He said that his son told him, after his contract is up, that he's going to try and work out a deal with the Reds so he can "come back home" or something. Thought that was interesting.

    Re: Rumors Sources

    Big Donkey was pretty darn credible. Marc D was on the money a few times.
    It's absolutely pathetic that people can't have an opinion from actually watching games and supplementing that with stats. If you voice an opinion that doesn't fit into a black/white box you will get completely misrepresented and basically called a tobacco chewing traditionalist...

    At the same time. The trades that have gone down, I don't remember any rumors of those trades until the bomb was dropped.
    I'm East of you. Be very very worried. Not quite OBX. But, be worried.

    How long until Aaron Cook's contract runs out?
    And this one belongs to the Reds!

    Re: Rumors Sources

    some people get their rumors from the newspapers and say they have "sources."

    Brooklyn Redz is very credible and obviously has some inside knowledge. There are others as well, but not many.

    He does want to pitch for the Reds. I have been told that by one of his best friends... I think he has a 3 year contract...

    I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.

    FWIW, many of the people with the best sources probably aren't going to tell us who those sources are, lest they lose those people as sources... and as friends.
