Dan Clark is a local Baltimore reporter, or whatever, who is currently getting a lot of attention on Twitter for declaring that Manny Machado will be signing with the New York Yankees because he claims to have some sort of inside info.
But this so clearly smells like a man shooting his shot and making an educated guess. If Machado signs with the Yankees, he can pat himself on the back and gets to pretend like his made up sources are real and continue the ruse that he has inside info going forward.
If it fails, he goes back to just writing about the Washington Capitals and losses all of the attention he’s gotten from New York fans these past couple of weeks. But some of those Yankees fans will stick around so in a way, he’s already succeeded.
2019 has just begun but we’ve already gotten our first contender for Scammer of the Year.
By the way, homeboy is already wrong.
You can only hit us with the ‘Machado is going to sign with Yankees tomorrow’ so many tomorrow’s in a row before it’s a wrap, my dude. Again, I respect the hustle. Asshole recognize asshole but you can return to writing about AAA baseball and get the fuck off my Twitter timeline.
Thanks for reading. Tweet to @TheLesterLee if you actually believe that Dan Clark has inside info so that I can mock you. Also, go ahead and throw Deadseriousness a Like on Facebook so that I can keep the lights on around here at HQ.
