The more I think about it, the more I believe it was all Arte. 

Heyman came out a couple days ago and said Arte was pissed off. 

He probably pulled the trade at that time. 

But Strad said no way it was!

If Arte pulled out because the Dodgers asked for more than the original deal, or one of our top blue chippers, then I don't fault him, if he pulled out because he is an impatient old man then it's on him, but if the Dodgers pulled the trade because they realized they didn't need the Angels in any of this, then f*$k the Dodgers in every conceivable way.

Angels still get Adell and Marsh in the line up before we know it. It’s a bummer we didn’t get Stripling. But I can see Eppler still making another move for pitching. Deals fall through all the time. It happens. Be bummed for a minute and get ready for a good Angels season about to start.

Ok, I will be the guy that doesn’t blame Arte.  If I end up being wrong so be it.  If the Dodgers trade Joc and get something better in return then I guess we can decide at that time who was right.

You are the one denying reports from well-respected/informed writers, not the other way around. It's amazing how clouded your judgement gets with regards to certain people inside the organization.

 

It's possible you end up right, but just as possible you are dead wrong. To be spouting off "no chance Arte pulled out" after that tweet is bizarre delusion

Ok, so they had a deal in place, the Marlins asked for more and that is Arte pulling out of a trade?  

Who knows what the heck is going on. 10 minutes ago the report was that the Angels deal was being 'slightly reworked' or something like that. I feel like that makes things comparable.

Because it lacks common sense.  Also lets not pretend that these reporters don’t make mistakes.  Exhibit A: every tweet about this trade for the better part of a week.

Your temper is as bad as Arte’s. No wonder you are defending him.

It would not surprise me if a new deal is worked out. The Dodgers still have to make some kind of move unless they are suddenly not worried about the luxury tax.

Unless Eppler and Friedman have a really good relationship, I doubt it....Somebody pulled the plug and I don’t think that Humpty Dumpty gets put back together....

I still don't understand why the Dodgers would pull out of the deal. They need to shed payroll and clear a roster spot.

Rosenthal did not report that Arte backed out of the deal. He reported 'conflicting reports' one of which was that Arte backed out.
