No way! This a shocking piece of news! Surely not a way to grab attention on a day with no baseball games in town by beating a dead horse!
Stone didn’t break new ground
It’d be pretty impossible for anyone to do that on this story at this point, unless Stone was also in on the secret conspiracy to hide Prior’s super duper secret Tommy John surgery, include the part where Zambrano ended up with Rodman’s self-control.
Though I think I might have heard that angle already too.
This paces out to a “Cubs: Sosa no-show caused trade” headline sometime in July, I think.
