MLB News: Free Agents File
Wednesday, November 29th, 2045
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:


Joey Grote, 35 year-old LH SP
Alex Perez, 33 year-old LH SP
Johnny Nyberg, 34 year-old 1B
Angel Santos, 30 year-old RH CL
Adam Bollman, 34 year-old C
Devon McKenzie, 31 year-old RH SP
Adam Ladd, 29 year-old RH SP
Liam Winder, 32 year-old CF
Tony Gonzalez, 39 year-old C
Jim Meyer, 33 year-old 3B

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.
Twins Dump Tommy Georgieff as Manager
Monday, November 27th, 2045
The Twins released an announcement to the Minnesota press corps with the simple title "Georgieff Out as Manager."

According to an unnamed source within the organization, Georgieff was not without his defenders in the front office, but ultimately he failed to garner a majority of support from the Twins executives in charge of his fate.

So far, there have been no comments from the players or Georgieff himself.
