Rumor: David Murphy close to a deal with Cleveland

The Twittersphere is abuzz with rumors that David Murphy is heading to Cleveland


Texas Rangers rumor of the night...David Murphy is supposedly close to a deal with the Cleveland Indians, according to folks on Twitter who, apparently, learned the news with Murphy's daughter told her teachers at school (or day care).  The relevant tweets:

The Cover The Bases person says in their Twitter bio that he/she is 12 years old.  So we've got a couple of people with a scoop from a day care, which is being confirmed by a 12 year old.

We shall see if this is one of the great moments of Twitter, or another false alarm.

UPDATE -- Evan Grant is reporting that, per a source, Murphy is close to a two year deal worth more than $10 million.
