Is it time to re-evaluate this guy as a somewhat legit source?

He had the Hojo thing a few days ahead of time (when others were stating otherwise). He stated on Sunday the Mets gave Lugo a take it or leave it ultimatum for Tuesday. I believe he has said other things before anyone had even rumored them and they became at least somewhat true.

He doesn't give his name or say his sources, very mysterious. He says he's at the meetings too. Here's his latest on Zito:

Quote:
Barry Zito: The Mets have finally put a starter offer on the table to the star pitcher: 5 years and $78.5M with an option for a 6th year at $17.5M for a total package of 6 years and $96M. We're hearing Rick Peterson has been involved privately.


and

Quote:
The Zito talks are in full swing, and Mets brass has confided that they want to get this thing done "sooner rather than later." Boras continues to meet with various teams to see how much he can get for his prized client. The Mets feeling is that their offer, which could total as much as $16M per year over 6 years is "more than enough" and we're told they will not go one penny higher. The Mets strategy was to put the offer on the table, let Boras talk for a day or two to other clubs, and then withdraw it and pursue pitching options via trade (most likely with the White Sox).

I don't the intent of this thread was to discuss the Zito deal - I think it was to get other's opinions on the guy/girl as a source....

Please keep this on topic... we have enough zito threads.

If I wanted this to be about Zito, I could have just posted that in the Zito threads :lol:

I'm more curious what people think of/know about this website? I had never heard of it until a few days ago when someone linked it. This guy has scoops at the very least.

Several people have been posting his stuff on here the last few days, so I'm not sure how it was found or who discovered it, but I wanted to get people's opinion on the site. He seems to have some details off (said HoJo would be the bench coach) but he does appear to have info, albeit shaky, before anyone else does.

It looks like he said that Hojo would be the new bench coach.
