Jose reyes 200x200So MLB Trade Rumors apparently got punked.

The blockbuster rumor they posted  (and to which we linked earlier) was a fabrication.

A’s GM Billy Beane actually was compelled to comment to the NY Post about the post. MLB Trade Rumors was contrite:

I guess I should be proud, right?  It sounds like I was the victim of an elaborate hoax/impersonated sportswriter.  If so I apologize - not sure why someone would go to such lengths, but lesson learned. 

The dangers of working in a rumor mill.

Too bad I burned all my Jose Reyes shirts and baseball cards earlier.
