The Major League Baseball hot stove is always evolving, changing course and sending fans spiraling in a different direction. 

If you have the destination of a free-agent star figured out, his likely destination is probably elsewhere. If a rumor sounds substantial, it might be the result of an agent trying to drum up the market for his client or faulty information leaking through into the news.
