Giving Rumor Mongering A Bad Name

The Dodgers, who have lost Jason Schmidt for the rest of the season, certainly would be interested in a bidding war with the Mets for White Sox pitcher Mark Buehrle.

Now, this article had no sources for the rumor, in fact, even out of context you can tell that the writer is just creating a hypothetical situation. Still, someone latched on to it, and now it's a rumor. This is why I don't get freaked out by trade rumors anymore.
