In Alyson Footer's FootNotes blog, she takes some time to address Jon Heyman's column that included taking Ed Wade to task for lying to Footer. Note her rebuttal:
Ed Wade does not owe me an apology, because Ed Wade never lied to me. Let me say it again -- Ed Wade has never lied to me.
I have been working with him for a year and a half. I have had many candid conversations with him over time and the one thing he guaranteed me is that if I ever approached him with something regarding rumors -- as long as they weren't trade rumors, because it's against the rules for teams to comment on players under contract other teams -- if I was headed in the right direction, he would never flat out tell me I was wrong.
Now whether or not this is what's on her heart, or she's protecting a relationship with the General Manager of the club she covers, this is pretty stand-up. What's with all the Happy Journalism these days surrounding the P-ez signing?
