Melvin On The Dunn Rumor

Brewers GM Doug Melvin had a funny comment on yesterday's bogus Adam Dunn to Milwaukee rumor:

"I'm taking more calls deflecting these kinds of rumors than I've had talking to GMs.  There are freaking geeks who get...off on this kind of stuff."

How did this game of telephone get started?  According to Mark Sheldon at MLB.com, a Cincinnati radio guy posted the trade as a rumor on his blog, and then apparently Sportsradio 1250 in Milwaukee announced it as a completed deal.  ESPN then picked up that radio report, but killed the rumor after Jerry Crasnick spoke to Melvin.
