Who unplugged the Hot Stove?



"I'm being traded to Oakland? IM SO EXCITED I JUST CANT HIDE IT!!!" - Brad Manigan

This is my first FanPost and it comes from a place in my heart that is very crucial to my livelihood; My love of baseball. I can only put this one way, I NEED MORE OAKLAND RUMORS!!! Believe me, this has NOTHING to do with WANTING rumors that have no merit, it has EVERYTHING to do with NEEDING more rumors. With merit or without.

If someone were to write an article about how the A's were about to sign Rickey Henderson to a ten year deal and then trade him for Mike Trout I would literally drop everything and read it ten times over. I am in a dark place in my life right now because my Green Bay Packers made an early exit from the playoffs again. This leaves me with nothing but trade rumors. AND THERE ARE NONE. Masahiro Tanaka does not interest me as much as others because I don't feel like it is all that interesting. I've seen these types of signings before. I need something big even if it's fake. If there happened to be a bidding war for a left handed, submarine, knuckleballer from Japan I would be as giddy as a school boy.

All of this makes me fear for my own sanity during the downtime of the baseball offseason. I need to find a therapist for November-February just so I can get myself out of bed in the morning. It's almost as if I am married to the love of my life for eight months every year, then we get a divorce for four months. It's life changing and not in a good way. This is why I need these rumors no matter how unrealistic or improbable they may be. It brings baseball back into my life if only for a few hours of the day.

This brings me to my question... No my PLEA... Put some rumors in the comments. I don't mind if you are starting the rumor here based on absolutely nothing or if you have a real rumor from some source. I just need to read some rumors so I can imagine that for this time of the year the baseball Hot Stove is as hot as ever.

Thank you,

A baseball fan nearing the end of his rope
