Heyman Building A Mystery

I’ve come to grow somewhat fond of Sports Illustrated’s baseball writer Jon Heyman.

Despite the entire world changing around him, Heyman has stood his ground on moving forward and like your Alzheimer Grandpa still unashamedly speaks his outdated mind on an entire range of topics, seemingly oblivious to how ridiculous he sounds.

Perhaps the most pitiful of Heyman’s follies is his willingness to be used as a puppet by any number of agents, most notably Scott Boras.  The latest evidence of his “I’ll bend over if you take me” attitude occurred last night when Boras posted a story on Cliff Lee claiming that a “mystery team” had joined the New York Yankees and Texas Rangers in bidding for the left handed starter’s services.
