Either the source gave her bad info, or she misinterpreted what the source told her. Only one of two potential persons to blame there. Can't even speculate which one it could be.

To be fair we don't really know. Brandon Kuhn broke the Springer signing, he got it before all the insiders. He obviously has a connection with someone inside the Jays organization that was involved in the Springer negotiations. So you just never know, could be Mae could be the source - one of them got it wrong.

Your more diplomatic than I am. How many free agent signings that have been announced in the past that didn't happen? You don't make an announcement until your 100% right.

No doubt it wasn't good. Maybe she saw that Brandon Kuhn and Joey Vendetta broke the Springer signing she wanted a part of the action. I mean she never breaks anything (right?) so it's new ground for her.

...to complicate matters and make it more embarrassing all the MLB insiders were posting the signing and crediting Mae. Then they had to re-tweet a retraction.

Brantley is a professional hitter and I would have loved having him and Springer in the line-up but you're right we really need pitching. I wonder if people know we don't really have a #2 pitcher.

Everyone breaks news based on an inside source. That's how they hear it's a done deal. If the source misinformed, then it's the source's fault. If the reporter/analyst misunderstood/misinterpreted, then it's the reporter/analyst's fault.

As i said before, we don't know the conversation that took place to truly know who is to blame. From the public perspective all we can do is point the finger to the public facing person, which will always be the reporter/analyst.

But let's not be naive that they don't break news based on inside sources, and the possibility can exist that sources can give bad info. Not saying that's the case here, just saying, we have no way of knowing.

In any case, i am indifferent about Brantley.

I'm not sure why your defending her. She messed up. I understand her jumping the gun. She is used to dodging Gatorade not real story's.
She should at least double check her minor league sources before she posts a story.

I am glad that this Brantley deal did not go through. It would have made a mess of our OF, in my opinion.

But, yeah is any one wondering we have not made any real SP moves !!,
I was hoping that they would atleast get Taijuan back, but that did not happen.
