Competition for the top Rumor Royalty honor among Yankees writers was fierce. Such a popular team demands top rumormongering talent and beat writers with connections.
When I first started writing MLB Trade Rumors, I hadn’t heard much of the Newark Star-Ledger’s Dan Graziano. That soon changed as I realized Dan was a proficient provider of Yankees and MLB hot stove buzz. In fact, he’s Rumor Royalty for the Yankees. His archive for the Star-Ledger can be found here.
Dan was kind enough to answer three questions for MLBTR, and he took the time to answer them thoroughly. I’ll break the answers into separate posts.
