Rumor Control

TBDSN - Rumor has it from an anonymous source that there was a winter meeting of various Major League scouts in a Dominican Republic resort over the weekend. Details are sketchy at this time, but it is believed that a player to be named later may have been highly belligerent to said contingent of scouts and management of those teams which was made up of somewhere near 30 teams. It is said that the player threw a 103MPH fastball at one scout, then yelled in Spanish that He "Would never sign a bleepin contract with your bleepin worthless team.". The anonymous source also hinted that said player may be price gouging with certain teams and league action may be required if the deal goes through. It was further rumored from another close unreliable source that the Atlanta and Huntington franchises could be involved in the fray. Calls to the league office only got the answering machine as they are vacationing in an undisclosed destination. After making a few calls around the league to a few teams Player Acquisition and Development Offices, several teams responded in saying that "He can take his Blackberry and shove it where the sun don't shine!" and there will be repercussions (or was that concussions). After hearing this, anger management classes might be a must.

In another rumor, a certain new franchise owner may be pulling up stakes next season as two other cities are courting with new stadium deals. Close sources say the cities are Jacksonville Florida and Richmond Virginia.
