Does Buster Olney Get Paid For This?

ESPN's Buster Olney has reported that "officials familiar with Joe Girardi's job prospects" have told him that Girardi could be hired by the Dodgers if the Yankees decide to hire Don Mattingly as manager instead. Of course, the Dodgers had no comment, which isn't surprising. What did seem a little odd though, was that Girardi's agent, Steve Mandel, wouldn't comment either. I'm sorry, but any agent from Drew Rosenhaus to Jerry Maguire would have said something along the lines of "there have been talks with other clubs". The whole point is to strike fear into the Yankees, to have them panic and hire Girardi before anyone else can snag him away. The way Mandel responded, or didn't respond, makes me think that the story isn't true. And if it isn't, wouldn't Olney know that? I mean, does he get paid to spread rumors for ulterior motives? Or am I sounding to much like the "9/11 was an inside job" kind of guys? Just seems a little fishy, that's all.
