Sunday, May 9th, 2055
Several Rays and Angels players soon will have to start shopping for a new home. It was announced today that the two teams came to agreement on a trade. Tampa Bay will get 21-year-old CF Andy Nielsen and 20-year-old minor league RHP Jamie Weiss and Los Angeles will pick up 25-year-old 2B Warren Merritt and $5,000,000 in cash in return. "I'm not surprised by the news," one of the players told reporters, "It's part of the business and I understand that. I am looking forward to playing for the Rays."


Thus far in 2055 Merritt is hitting .241 with 3 home runs, 11 RBIs, 6 runs scored and has compiled a .268 OBP.
Veteran Whisler Signs with Padres
Friday, May 7th, 2055
San Diego management got a shot in the arm today as Matt Whisler announced he would re-sign with the organization at a rate of $41,875,000 per year.

While some have questioned hiring a 34-year-old man, most fans and sportswriters appear receptive as Whisler is still an A list player.

Whisler has made 7 starts this season, posting 3 wins and 2 losses. Opposing clubs are batting .219 against him and he has 65 strikeouts in 51.1 innings with a 3.51 ERA.
