MLB News: Free Agents File
Saturday, November 26th, 2039
Major League Baseball 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:


Norm Small, 33 year-old RF
Denney Wilie, 32 year-old RF
Johnny Hutchings, 28 year-old RH RP
Tripp Sigman, 27 year-old LF
Bill Krieg, 36 year-old C
Charles Nichols, 38 year-old RH SP
Dick Johnston, 28 year-old LF
Cap Anson, 32 year-old 1B
Cuke Barrows, 29 year-old RF
Fred Clarke, 38 year-old RF

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.
