That's if you believe there is a source. His posts stink of some dude reading the tea leaves and calling them a source. He reiterates the rumors that are out there and adds color.I'd say it's 50/50 whether the color is from a real source, or his furry friend Harvey.

Maybe, but I think this guy is pretty legit. He's called things quite accurately and in the last week or 2 when he said things about the Brewers being after a pitcher the national media guys had tweets/articles about it within a day or 2.

I don't care if the guy is using a voice system or if he doesn't have any hands or what, but no one who uses apostrophes like that can be considered "legit" in my book.

I bet Yu Darvish is going to make a future appearance in the #MeToo thread

Yup, you're right.

also, here is some odd stuff he said about the cubs

Let's go over a few things here. First off, were not Cub fans. That means we don't treat other's like dung and rip on our own fans. We don't call out our player's or coaches when their losing but act like were the greatest fans when we are winning. That's not what Brewer fans are, that's Cubs fans. We have a player who did roids and got caught. He apologized and like civilized fans we forgive, forget and embrace him. In return, he wanted nothing else but to stay in Milwaukee, even when he knew we were in rebuild mode. Because he knew the fans here are special and don't sell out like fans from other teams. Were not dirtbags. Dirtbags are Cubs fans. Listen to 670 the score if you don't believe me. Brewer fans are some of the most respected fans in all of Baseball.


but i'm giving him the attention he wants, so really the joke's on me


Yes, after trying to blame Dino Laurenzi (the tester) for a few months then finally doing the right thing ... bleep braun ... straight punk

Let's not forget he went as far as to accuse Dino of being antisemitic.

Sorry, I was referencing the whole Darvish saga, not doubling down. And the previous post wasn't as much about off-topic as it was desperately desiring Darvish news.

I can see how it came across, though.

This thread has become such a let down every time I open it. And not just because Darvish hasn’t signed yet. :(

Yup. I think some posters actually enjoy making new posts here just to disappoint people looking for legit Yu Darvish news. At this rate, this thread goes strong all the way up to spring training and maybe beyond...
