SCRAPPERS PAY TO KEEP FREEMAN AT OWNERS BASH
STATEN ISLAND, NY (April 14) -- Baseball errors are found in the record books. Club owner errors are not -- fans remember those. ¶ After much toil, the New York City Scrappers made Banksville Freddie Freeman the first player picked in the expansion draft. "Owner Andy Wong texted me," said Freeman. "He wrote, You're the first Scrapper, son. No other player can say that. Think about it." Mr. Wong didn't realize Mr. Freeman was a free agent. It would cost him. The photo, on the right, shows Mr. Wong, posing, after signing a 5-year deal to keep Freeman. "Imagine the humiliation of losing Freeman," notes Slick Rhodes. "He is the face of the franchise. The fans would burn their tickets at a bonfire outside Ronald Reagan Park." ¶ The New York Knights maxed out on Max Scherzer, the biggest signing at this year's owners gathering. Adam Goldberg paraded and puffed on his victory cigar. His son Jeremy disapproved. The owners present (Mr. Wong, Mr. Robert Fermann, Mr. Pete Stratigakis, and Mr. Jesus Diaz) and on Skype (Mr. Robert Emrich, Mr. Jon Simonds and Mr. Dylan Simonds) were not amused. (Neither were the Villalbas in Vegas, who were told of the escapades.) "It's too easy to max out," said Rhodes. "Where's the pain? The Bonilla Bid is coming." The Bonilla Bid? If Mr. Diaz gets his way, this proposal will introduce a third round of bidding plus no guarantees of retaining prized free agents."That will be fun," said Rhodes.
