The thing is, eventually, some day, be it one year or 10 years from now, we will know definitively what happens, because the story will be written with an actual beginning, middle and end. Until then, it just doesn't seem fair or fun to post each individual rumor every time one pops up. If I did that, it's all that would ever be on this blog and it would be impossible to determine fact from fiction...
Therefore, ever since the Madoff case was settled - when readers made quite clear to me they prefer baseball news here to business news - when it comes to off-field, business-related stories, I wait for the team's beat reporters and city's financial reporters to swarm as a group before I post something. In other words, if they are silent, I'm silent... like tonight... so I can focus on the hot stove (or not stove, depending on how you look at it).
