Throwing some wood on the hot stove
Have you heard the latest buzz about the seemingly dead Manny-for-A-Rod, Nomar-for-Ordonez blockbuster deal? According to several fan message boards, including sonsofsamhorn.com and bostondirtdogs.com, the official team sites of the Red Sox, Rangers, and White Sox all changed their flags at the top of their sites within an hour of each other at about 2 a.m. today, removing images of the aforementioned players. Spooky! Conspiracy! What do you think is going on???
Nothing is going on. The potential moves are on the back burner while Theo plays his guitar

Since all MLB sites are maintained by the same entity, it likely routine maintenance and updates. Teams change their rosters constantly and teams often add new stars every year (especially the 3 teams mentioned above) and would want their websites to reflect these new aquisitions.
Man, I hope this is true.

Just a coincidence, nothing more. There is nothing on ESPN, or any sports info reports. Besides, who really cares except the named players, and this really is not earth-shattering enough to have secret talks and pictures being withdrawn during the night!!

Helloooo? The Patriots are playing Saturday! Let it go.... Lets Go Pats!!!!!!
Come on, lets stop digging here. IF it happens it happens. Why does NESN still show people like mo vauhn and Roger clemens, or any of those guys in some of there promos.

I've felt all along that the teams said the deal was dead in order to get what he wanted the whole time - the ability to negotiate outside the media eye. The deal is happening as we speak..
Hey, I think they just wanted to change their flags at the top of their sites. Are you trying to get us goin' again?????
Did any of the other team websites change their flags this morning as well. They all run on an MLB format. Its quite possible that all the teams sites changed last night making these sitings just a coincidence. I'll believe that a trade is in the works when all sides announce the deal for real. I'm tired of listening to rumors.
I think it means that people have WAY!!!!! too much free time.
