Adam LaRoche rumors; or, the Winter Meetings in a nutshell

This is pretty much how it goes all week here:

  • Writer A says that the Washington Nationals are poised to sign Adam LaRoche;
  • Writer B says, no, nothing imminent. There are talks, nothing more, and other teams are still interested.

Then everyone rushes to see who is listed as LaRoche’s agent in order to try to get a comment from him.  Then you stroll around the lobby to try to find the Nationals’ Assistant Associate Vice-Vice-Vice President of Non-Critical Operations to see if you can read any tells off his face when he says “fine” after you ask him how his day is going.

It’s all very scientific, really.

    You guys must be pretty bored if you’re chasing Adam LaRoche rumors.

    What? The assistant to the traveling secretary isn’t available?

      Finding the perfect strip club to relax away the stress of being in the middle of a 12 game road trip is daunting work.

    Craziness! “Assistant Associate Vice-Vice-Vice President of Non-Critical Operations” is actually MY job title! I just was promoted into this position from “Assistant to the Regional Manager”.

    This post is just so cynical. Fun to read, but oh so cynical.

      As a great man once said “being cynical just means you’re paying attention”.
