Has Pat Burrell been traded to the Mets? UPDATE: Nope

Leave a comment

I put that in the form of a question because while one paper is reporting that it has happened — a three way swap that had him first going to the Cubs and then to the Mets — no one else is reporting it yet.  And no one here at the Meetings is talking about it.

If it’s true, WTF are the Mets thinking?

UPDATE: A few people are now saying this is bogus, but PhillyBurbs.com still has it up.  Gotta love the looney season.

UPDATE II:  Now the Mets are saying it’s totally bogus.

According to former major leaguer and current broadcaster Ryan Spilborghs, Jenny Cavnar will be calling play-by-play of Monday night’s game against the Padres for the Rockies. The broadcast will be on AT&T Sportsnet Rocky Mountain Region.

Cavnar will be at least the third woman to call televised play-by-play for a major league team, joining Gayle Gardner (Rockies, 1993) and Suzyn Waldman (Yankees, mid-1990’s).

Broadcasting remains largely the domain of white men, so it’s always good when women and people of color are able to have a seat in the broadcasting booth.
