It spins around and around, it confuses, it distracts, and it also sucks you in. And no, I am not talking about Manny Ramirez’ prized “Sonic the Hedgehog” cartridge. I am talking about the trade rumor mill. Just reading this column from Peter Gammons makes me want to Edward Tufte his ass, and graphically chart the numerous exhanges floated out there in the press. My guess is that at the end of it all, Gammons’ musings reduce down to the Diamondbacks trading Randy Johnson to themselves for, you guessed it, Randy Johnson.
Midnight Saturday can’t come fast enough.
