I've noticed an interesting pattern while monitoring internet communication technologies.
First this from Brian Hoch on Twitter: "Why were the Yankees interested in Ian Snell again?"
Then this from Tyler Kepner, also on Twitter: "Just throwing it out there, no basis for this: wouldn't Seattle be a great spot for Matsui next year?"
But then Feinsand tweets: "Remember when people thought the Yankees should trade for Ian Snell from the Pirates? They're probably happy that didn't happen, eh?"
We'd already heard that from Hoch. Then I click over to Abe's blog, and I read, "Wonder if Matsui ends up here next season?"
It would seem that the Yankees beat writers are all controlled by some sort of uberbrain, possibly in a jar, that makes them all independently think the same thing. Either that or whenever someone makes a clever point in the press box everybody goes ahead and steals it.
