It’s not about “impatience” if the original deal wasn’t on the table anymore.

Goddamnit Arte. 

“It wasn’t sorted out until Sunday, when the three teams finally agreed to make two separate trades, rather than one three-way deal. But by then Moreno had reportedly become so irritated with the delay that he pulled the Angels out of their deal.“

I appreciate your participation in this.

It would be a long story that would end up boring, but one huge life lesson for me has been to be very careful not to buy into the juicy storyline that seems less logical than the boring more rational story that is less titillating.

I don’t know what happened and I suspect Rosenthal is reporting what he heard in good faith.

But until we have something better than a tweet from a guy that heard something from an unnamed source.  . . I personally gotta keep my mind open to settle for the pathetically boring, in exciting rational possibility that the Dodgers interest changed and what was a deal became unresolved and annoying. . . Enough that the Angels waved it off.

Sometimes the boring story is true folks.  I just don’t think we know based on how this has been reported (so far).

 

I thought exactly like you about 8 hours ago, and then I talked to someone who definitely knows exactly what happened. And now I don't think that way any more.

I don't know what else I can tell you.

are you going to keep at this until you get the answer you're looking for?  

Arte pulled out.  You should do the same.  

You didn’t get my comment.  If Fletcher has the real scoop, I would love for him to report it with his own source with details.

He's given us the real scoop. You just don't seem to like the answer.

I got your comment perfectly and he's already given you the info you need which you've chosen to discount or ignore.  

it's not a big deal anymore.  the trade didn't happen.

You are wrong.  I accept his report.  Up until 29 minutes ago all we had was one guy tweeting from an unnamed source.  I believe Jeff.

Who’s passing judgement. He’s been a great owner. People owners businessmen make mistakes to. We are all emotional beings and none of us are perfect. There is no judgment being passed. I’d reports are true which look more and more likely then it stinks but. It’s still been a great offseason. No ones disputing it. 

Mistakes sure, massive clusterfuckups, not so much.
If this trade was blown over nothing more than impatience, thats a lot more than just a mistake.

So clarify, did we actually just blow this off over irritation and impatience?  Is that what im getting here or am i misunderstanding?  Ive been praying someone would tell us the dodgers tried to change it and we didnt throw this away for nothing.
I know theres only so much you can say, but yeah, help us out here.

He pretty much said it. He's not going to call Arte out. But he said Arte nixed the deal.

Whatever. It's over and done with. I've lost a fuckton of respect for Arte but whining about it isn't going to change anything.

Arte nixed the deal isnt the point, the point is why.
was it changed, or did he just throw a fit.
If the later he made a huge blunder
