The Rumor That Would Not Die

The latest headline on MSNBC's online sports section:

Rangers may join Manny sweepstakes

The story?

The Texas Rangers are considering pursuing free agent slugger Manny Ramirez, Sports Illustrated reports.

Though GM Jon Daniels has said the team is not actively pursuing Ramirez, he did not rule out the possibility of doing so.

I'm flummoxed that this story is getting as much traction in the MSM as it is.
