I'm sorry, if they're not discussing names and it looks like it may well be possible, don't call it a "rumor".
I'd call it a rumor. By definition a rumor is something that has uncertain truth. There are issues with should it be posted or should it be said "some guy said such and such and I heard this that and the other" but that's really beyond the point.
But the title as it stands is true, or at least more so than the jokes you put up. Tejada said that he would love playing for the cubs. (WGN/http://www.mlbtraderumors.com
