Jon Heyman, late of Sports Illustrated and Newsday, now of CBS, is a fine baseball reporter. He keeps up with rumors at an impressive clip, and, when he's not the first with a scoop, he'll credit whoever had it first on Twitter. Judging by his TV and Twitter personas, he seems reasonable. But he also seems rich. Really rich. We've noticed this pattern for some time, but Heyman's tweet on Saturday afternoon ensured that we would speak our minds:
Out of element at standard hotel downtown. Just saw model asked concierge where to find best gay clubs. No trade rumors here!
Yup. Jon Heyman hangs at the Standard. He's out of his element only because he's worried he won't get past the notoriously tough door at the Boom Boom Room, and Jon Heyman doesn't do Le Bain. This trade rumor shit is a smokescreen.
More glaring examples of Heymoney abound.
Heyman on hangouts:
at art basel, miami. still looking for dogs playing poker
my neighbor jorge cantu is getting close to a deal with the #angels
Heyman on food:

Taking red eye to fll. Things I like to do better: 1) clean toilet, 2) eat at olive garden or chilis, 3) watch mob wives

Heyman on cabs:
