Five MLB Rumors No One’s Talking About

As reliable content-generator and hot, sexy tuba-ist David Temple noted yesterday in these pages, this year’s Winter Meetings — at which Meetings the author, who is a real-live baseball writer now, was actually present — were decidedly yawn-worthy in terms of deals that were actually made. That having been said (and with due respect to Tim Dierkes et al.), there are a number of rumors that have been entirely ignored by the sporting media — rumors about which any reasonable person is likely to ask “Why is no one talking about this???”

Rumors like these five, specifically:

Bryan LaHair’s surname is French for “The Hair.”

***

The Rockies front office is basically, like, “whatever” now.

***

There are actually multiple Ken Rosenthals.

***

Kelly Gruber’s name is woefully absent from HOF ballots.

This guy has a game-used Val Pascucci jersey.
