Looks like no Jones

It's been an amazing week in Seattle fan land. The news from Prospect Insider re: Adam Jones getting the call was pretty interesting, as you had a blog breaking a fairly major story.

Alas, the local papers are now reporting it won't happen, at least right away.

This has now happened several times- remember the news Hargrove was getting canned and we heard all of these "Trust us, our sources are never wrong" and it turns out they were? It looks like a source was wrong again, because the local papers wouldn't be reporting it if they didn't have direct confirmation.

Bloggers are still not considered "real" reporters, for obvious reasons. It's too bad the story wasn't true, as it was good for the team and good for the medium. It will be interesting to see the reaction from the FO, who are probably hoping the Ichiro news will overshadow the fact they are only delaying the inevitable.

While the news right now is that Adam Jones is not in Seattle, the real story continues to be...

Why not?
