    Come on every party involved in this story knew exactly how this would play out .

    Bill Madden did not just come in on a turnip truck from Jerzee.

    He knew just what would happen.

    I am stunned that so many of you are naive to this.

    When Boom and I are not only on the same page but in 100% agreement, maybe all you flyover country bumpkins will attempt to understand how the tabloids act and react in the largest, most competitive market in the world.

    Please, people, cut the pompous crap about people being fired or newspaper cred being hurt. We are tallking perfect storm for NY tabloids and The Boss.

    Get a clue!

    Its a great day for mankind and country bumpkin sportswriters to watch and learn something you did not learn in journalism school.

    Watch for A- Rod to be traded stories to start sometime next week.

    Next Tuesday, Boom.
    When the Mets are up 3-2 on the Cards and coming home to clinch the NL pennant on Wednesday night, The NY Post will learn that the Yankees are engaged in serious talks with the Chicago Cubs to trade Alex Rodriguez for a collection of sore-armed pitchers and minor league prospects.

    They're already starting the A-Rod to the Cubs trade speculation in Chicago.

    I think the people who are naive are the ones from ESPN and all the other outlets who took the original story as gospel and assumed that the Torre firing was a done deal. All you had to do was read Madden's story to know there was no real substance there.

    And spnited, we all know that this is how the tabloids work, but it's still terrible journalism, and it should be pointed out as such.

    A red flag
    A red flag always goes up for me when Howard Rubenstein is involved in driving the story.
