’cause things are fairly quiet now, time to stir the waters a bit ;)
here goes another interesting situation with potential Twins’ consequences:
a. Every team has until March to offer every player in its roster a contract (in most cases for players not going to arbitration or signed to a contracts it is a typical situation: player is under team control, team offers minimum, thing done)
b. Atlanta’s owner, GM and the whole front office after the Furcal situation are in record saying that they will never sign a player represented by or work with the Wasserman group of agents (Furcal’s agents)
c. Guess who is represented by the Wasserman group? Yunel Escobar.
Do you think that he will not be offered a contract and thus become a free agent or do you think that Atlanta’s owner, GM and front office will offer him a contract and prove that their word is worth as much as the Wasserman group in the Furcal negotiations?
nice Catch-19 (Escobar’s jersey number) situation…
