at least in my EA MVP Baseball game.
Not trying to be a jerk, but this diary is mainly a question about how to respond to rumor posts.
I'm not discounting or supporting any post. The truth of those are irrelevant to the following questions.
When seeing a rumor posted in a forum like this it seems the general consensus is to automatically give it enough merit to talk about the pros and cons of such a trade. True or not, it seems to promote good discussion as to whether or not such a deal would be "worthy." Whether or not it's a "valid rumor" (rather oxymoronic) seems to be of less importance.
Do we tend to just like these kinds of rumors? Giving them more leeway than other types of posts just because we like to debate the theoretical issues?
