Larry LaRue Explains Rumor Mongering
Seriously, this is about as good an explanation as you’ll ever hear for why you shouldn’t get all wrapped up in the stuff that gets printed in the papers right now.
Among the dozens of assistant GMs wandering the halls of the St. Regis was Bob Boone.
Boone, the father of Bret and Aaron, is a former manager and once came to spring training for Seattle – and didn’t make the team.
Now, he’s with the Washington Nationals.
As he walked by a handsome, manly writer he knew well, Boone asked how things were going.
“Would you like to be a managerial candidate in Seattle?” the writer asked.
“Sure, put me on the list,” Boone said.
So, GM Meeting Update!!
Bob Boone is a possible candidate for the vacant Mariners managerial job.
That’s how it works here….
He’s not kidding either. You’d need to own a salt mine in order to have enough grains to take these rumors with. However, LaRue’s blog has been pretty entertaining the last few days. You might say he finds the hotel where the GM meetings are being held to be a little bit overpriced…
