A couple of unlikely baseball reporters break the news on a blockbuster MLB trade, the Knicks still don’t know what they’re doing, and a main goes to great lengths to show how much he hates his neighbor. We’ll get to those stories and much more here at the Friday Cheat Sheet…

KatyPerrysBootyHole and WetButt23 were first on the Jose Quintana trade to the Cubs

The Chicago Cubs and Chicago White Sox agreed to a rare trade together, and especially rare in terms of its magnitude. The Cubs landed annually underrated left-hander Jose Quintana from the White Sox in exchange for four prospects, with outfielder Eloy Jimenez (a monster; arguably a top-5 prospect in baseball) and pitcher Dylan Cease (filthy stuff, a matter of staying healthy/durable) headlining that haul.

But even more interesting than the blockbuster trade was who had the scoop. That would be Reddit users KatyPerrysBootyHole and WetButt23.

It appeared the Knicks may finally be on the verge of trading Carmelo Anthony to the Rockets or Cavs… but now it turns out they may want to keep him. Who the hell knows with them.
