Oh man, that thread could go forever. As a general rule, any rumor overheard near the baggage claim of the Phoenix airport is toward the top of the list.

This wasn't really a rumor, but the dumbest trade talk I heard recently was that the Sox should send Crede and a couple good prospects for A-Rod.

So far, the "C.Lee back to the Sox" one looks like a contender...

You are new here, so first off, Welcome Aboard!....and to answer your question COUNTLESS...threads upon threads....at least 700 rumors I've read in my 3 years on this site....the airport thing was reguarding a poster who swore up and down he was standing behind KW at the airport and heard him say "make it happen" or something.... I forget the player, but I think it was Randy Johnson back in Dec of 2004.

Was that Johnson for Konerko and Garland?

No offense to the thread starter, but there's enough stupid trade rumors going on currently, so there's no need to rehash the old ones. Also, FYI, if you go back to reasearch old trade threads, don't post in (bump) them.

Anything that people source as MLBtraderumors.com

Especially after we proved how bad that site was last year, and then this year it pops up as a hotbox again. I mean, I think some people just NEED to have rumors and when they dont they have to find someone to make them up

Chisoxtony saying Matt Clement had a deal in place but then JR did something. I think he claimed he had a union source.

Kruzer saying he had a cousin in Oakland who knew Billy Beane and said he was interested in Podsednik right after the Lee trade.

The one in my sig is the worst I can recall, and yet people here still die for this guy's info because he mentioned the Maggs-Nomar trade about 1 or 2 days before it happened. Of course his version also had the Sox trading Billy Koch and Aaron Rowand, and then it stretched into the Angels and Rangers getting involved with Konerko being traded for Erstad and Washburn. Just total nonsense.

Otis...people by here think he is KW's personal assistant....He made the call on the Nomar thing and then just bombed after that...his rumor that KW turned down a Thomas/Rowand for Ortiz/Damon trade with the Bo Sox was just awful...yet people here still post "Where's Otis?" and are serious too....

Yeah, "Carlos" Zumaya is amazing. You know there's some on that board who ran to tell their friends about it and turned on ESPNNEWS.

KW, JR, and several Sox players live in the Phoenix area, so every now and then we'll get a rumor from someone who knows a guy whose aunt's second cousin was at Sky Harbor and overheard Kenny on his cell talking about trading (name #1 and a player to be named later) for (names #2 and 3).

Obviously that trade by itself won't fly, but I wouldn't be surprised in any way to see Alex Rodriquez traded to the Cubs. The Cubs would have to up their end of the deal with a starting pitcher. Stranger things have happened.

I would have to say anything suggested by 90% of the Score callers who are dumbasses. They are mathematical traders-they think that you can trade two bad players for one good one.
