An example of what this week does to people:

    One person close to a calendar expects July to turn to August.

    • natstowngreg - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:42 PM

      Since the end of the world has been postponed until October, your source seems reliable.

  2. hittfamily - Jul 26, 2011 at 12:58 PM

    One person close to Jon Morosi expects more worthless tweets.

    I bet these trade talks with Beltran don’t stop intensifying until he is traded.

    • natstowngreg - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:29 PM

      Or, the trade deadline passes and all those pundits will have to explain why Beltran wasn’t traded. I’m not assuming that any trade will happen — or will not happen — until sometime after Midnight Monday morning, when all of the actual trades have been reported.

        Man, that would make me giggle

  4. southpaw2k - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:07 PM

    One person close to a meterologist expects the sun to rise in the east tomorrow.

    • hittfamily - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:41 PM

      one person close to Harold Camping doesn’t expect it to.

  5. dlevalley - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:11 PM

    A source close to me suspects I did not wear deodorant today.

    • sknut - Jul 26, 2011 at 2:00 PM

      A source close to you can confirm you didn’t wear deodorant today and would wish you would change your stance on the issue.

    • Utley's Hair - Jul 26, 2011 at 2:01 PM

      As do sources far away from you.

      • hittfamily - Jul 26, 2011 at 5:55 PM

        As my dad once said, if a fly lands on you it’s no big deal. When it starts following you is when you should be embarrassed.

  6. kopy - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:20 PM

    A source close to me suspects I’m typing a comment on HBT.

  7. sdelmonte - Jul 26, 2011 at 1:56 PM

    This just in: Boehner and Obama disagree.

  8. bigleagues - Jul 26, 2011 at 3:21 PM

    MLB srce herd SD 2 trade Adams or Bell, if not both, but prolly not both, w/i nxt 128hrs. Selig added: still no WC news.

  9. bjavie - Jul 26, 2011 at 3:56 PM

    One person close to the dead horse says you have beaten it…into a fossil.

    • bigleagues - Jul 26, 2011 at 8:26 PM

      Heyman is at it again . . .

      “Jon Heyman of SI.com writes that there’s a “strong belief” that the best offer for Carlos Beltran may come from the Rangers.”

      Who’s strong belief? A ‘highly placed MLB exec’? A ‘source familiar with the negotiations’? The Rangers towel boy?
