Here is a list of phrases I find are overused and stupid during this insane season of hot stove baseball
- Interested in
- Look at
- Anonymous sources
- Major-league sources
Example: According to my anonymous major-league sources, INSERT TEAM NAME could be interested in INSERT PLAYER NAME. Insiders say it’s possible TEAM NAME could look at pursuing PLAYER NAME as a possible addition to their team. It’s not known if he is likely to be available for a decent price, but it’s unlikely he gives any team a bargain. Right now, it’s just a rumor.
I apologize in advance if I use these in any major way in any posts from here on out. I try not to rumor-monger, but sometimes I lapse into some bad blogging judgment.
