Blind item says baseballer is gay

New, comments

I'm not a big fan of blind items prined by newspapers and mags; Whenever anything is unattributed and untraceable, I get a little suspicious. But this tidbit ran in the New York Daily News last week:

Which baseball heart-throb may be playing for the other team? Word is he slips into bed with Florida fellas.

What's particularly bad about this item is that it could be anyone. Three keys: 1) He plays baseball, 2) he's probably moderately attractive and 3) there's some relation to Florida. How many men playing baseball could be called attractive and at some point pass through Florida (be it spring training or partying)? All of them. I'll wait for the next clue before embarking on a guessing game.
