The MLB offseason was given some life earlier this week when the Boston Red Sox and Los Angeles Dodgers agreed on a blockbuster Mookie Betts trade.
One Twitter user, known as @MLBintel, seemingly predicted the trade and is now claiming to report yet another blockbuster trade. Such a move would have Nolan Arenado leaving the Colorado Rockies and joining the Chicago White Sox.
This is certainly huge news, if true. The Rockies came out and said Arenado would not be moved this offseason after his name filled the rumor mill. Now he is being sent to Chicago?
Immediately labelling this tweet as false is easy to do, especially for an unknown account like this. However, @MLBintel did tweet this hours before the Betts deal was announced:
Right now the account has one amazing prediction. If the Arenado news does become true, @MLBintel will cement itself as Ken Rosenthal-lite, which seems unlikely.
White Sox fans may to turn on push notifications.
