MLB News: Free Agents File
Saturday, November 24th, 2040
The opening day of MLB free agency arrives today with a flurry of activity as players file their paperwork to become free agents.

For the next several months, players and their prospective suitors will be locked in fierce negotiations. Deals will come together, fall apart and be resurrected again. Teams will fight to meet their needs while staying within their budget. Throughout the process, there will be second-guessing from fans and media alike. Even players who remain under contract will keep an eye on things, curious as to who will be sharing their locker room in the coming season and whether that bodes well or ill for their own careers.

Months from now, when the free agency period has settled down, fans will finally get a glimpse at the latest version of their team.

A number of quality players have filed for free agency and could generate a lot of interest. Most notable among them are:


Lonny Frey, 27 year-old 2B
Ned Garvin, 32 year-old RH SP
Ollie Fuhrman, 33 year-old C
Steve Bilko II, 30 year-old 1B
Bill Joyce, 34 year-old 1B
Frank Hankinson, 38 year-old 3B
Katsuya Nomura, 36 year-old C
Fred Heimach, 32 year-old LH SP
Jim Hackett, 34 year-old RH SP
Hal Newhouser, 31 year-old LH SP
three-time MVP winner Bill Joyce Files for FA
Saturday, November 24th, 2040
Coming off a season where he finished with a WAR of 7.4, Bill Joyce is hoping to start a bidding war.

There is no shortage of teams that will be interested in the 34-year-old 1B, but only a few have the budget to truly contend for his services.

Joyce, who is a two-time Gold Glove 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.
