Angels not signing Manny
Posted on: January 17, 2011 11:15 am
In an example of what a house of cards the mile-a-minute modern news world is, one prankster using a fake Twitter account managed to disseminate a rumor Sunday night that the Angels were about to sign Manny Ramirez.
Several news organizations, including the Toronto Star, ran with the item posted on Twitter by someone faking the identity of an ESPN reporter. But it's not true -- at least not now. The Angels have been mentioned as having interest in Ramirez, but he doesn't seem like a great fit there.
