POTD News: Free Agents File
Wednesday, November 22nd, 2062
Pioneers of the Diamond announced the start of the free agency period today.

Players with expiring contracts began to file as the clock struck midnight and general managers were already making the rounds. With the opening of free agency came a predictable chorus of speculation from the media.

While most teams are likely to make at least some small moves, it's still uncertain who the movers and shakers will be. Reporters expect a lot of attention to be lavished on the cream of the free agent crop, including these players:


Christian Foster, 28 year-old LF
Christian Smith, 32 year-old CF
Kieran Bell, 31 year-old RF
Don Edwards, 35 year-old LH SP
Jason Bender, 36 year-old C
José Alba, 31 year-old LH SP
William Rush, 36 year-old 3B
Cal Owen, 35 year-old C
Gilberto Hernández, 29 year-old 2B
José Paredes, 36 year-old LF

Signings can continue throughout the offseason, although most of the high quality players are expected to conclude negotiations long before then. Most players want to be well paid, but they also want to get settled so they can start the process of moving family across town or across the country.
Star 2B Bret Buchanan Files for FA
Wednesday, November 22nd, 2062
Coming off a season where he finished with a WAR of 2.5, Bret Buchanan filed for free agency today, hoping to start a bidding war.

There is no shortage of teams that will be interested in the 33-year-old second baseman, but only a few have the budget to truly contend for his services.

Buchanan, who is a four-time Diamond Glove Award winner, is hoping to play for a team truly pushing to win it all.

"I'd love to help propel my new team to a championship," he said.
