Who makes fake accounts for Steve Cishek?

It says the account was created in August of 2016. Clearly, Cishek made the account, forgot about it, then got this Wheeler scoop today and decided to share it with the world.

I love the "lore" of these fake twitter acounts more than the content of the tweets.

Fake Steve Cishek.... "burner account" for a "former GM"... Larmonade....

Twitter + the off season = fun.

I wish us Americans had a phrase as good as "he's taking the piss" for situations like this.  This guy is taking the piss on us all.

I don't get the whole "putting your email in your twitter handle" thing.

I miss the days when "putting your email in your Soxtalk username" was a thing

Those poor users, that was just a glitch from the board migration and confusion on who editing usernames were under.

Remember Manny Machado's estranged father or his cousin? 🤣

He's a solid fielder and mashes RHP.  LHP, not so much.

one of the reasons i wanted him last year was to give him a year to face lhp more and try and improve. But we have a good platoon boy in Engel.

He just hasn't been allowed to face LHP with how deep the Dodgers are.  He had like 50 abysmal ABs last year.

Or Leury for that matter.

how so?

Wheeler is deciding where to call home for 5 years... can hear a respected veteran sell the Sox. He’s inadvertently recruiting for us.

In return, he stirs his own pot a little.

90% sure Bob was the kiss of death, but I'll hope I'm wrong. 

one of the reasons rosenthal is the best one to follow is he doesn't report things like this, he waits until they are damn near done (also a reason why I think execs trust him most, he probably holds a lot of more speculative stuff)
