To be fair, there was a LOT of smoke around a Martinez trade there for a while. Now the company line seems to be "oh they weren't really interested in trading him."

That's fair, and maybe these guys do have inside knowledge. That would be really interesting.

these guys make the offseason fun i suppose. they may have inside stuff, they may not. i tend to err on the fact they are just trying to build a following in order to parlay that into some sort of career.

take Trey Wallace for example. virtual nobody until the tennessee coaching search. kept dropping gruden nuggets, built a following, turns out he was FOS, now he's working for FOXsports.

Like i said, it's fun, but i take everything these guys say (including the national known professionals) with a grain of salt.

with all that said:

Listening to a bit of his "podcast" (out of morbid curiousity), he sounds like recent Adult Swim comedian Joe Pera.

I feel like this ought to be my career path. I could lie about possible trades to get a high-paying job.

Seems pretty fishy when you have to spend so much time defending your predictions and hyping your successes.

Please, Mr. @cardinals_live, Bryce Harper's going to sign any minute. There isn't much time. What's your prediction?
WHO'S GOING TO SIGN HARPER, FOR HOW MUCH, AND HOW LONG? OKAY, GIVE ME ANOTHER MEATBALL, AND I'LL TELL YOU.

OKAY, LISTEN CAREFULLY.
I WON'T REPEAT THIS, YOU UNDERSTAND?
I KNOW WHERE HARPER IS GOING TO SIGN RIGHT NOW.
I KNOW THE EXACT AMOUNT AND LENGTH OF CONTRACT.
Okay, what's the contract?
HE'S NOT SIGNING TO PLAY IN MEXICO.
No?
HE'S NOT GOING TO PLAY IN KOREA.
No?
HE'S NOT GOING TO PLAY IN JAPAN.
No?
HE'LL SIGN IN AMERICA.
Yes?
YOU WANT TO KNOW WHERE IN AMERICA?
Yes!
OKAY, OKAY, I'LL TELL YOU! HE'LL PLAY IN NORTH AMERICA. IN THE UNITED STATES. WITH [EXPLOSION].
