Major League Baseball Free Agency Signings Continue
By now most of the American public knows about Albert Pujols and C.J. Wilson signing with the Los Angeles Angels and on the other end of the continent Jose Reyes and Mark Buehrle signing with Miami. Now that those headlines have been made and the signings have been debated ad nauseum in every tavern in the country all eyes are on Prince Fielder, the slugging first baseman formerly of the Milwaukee Brewers. Where will he end up? What kind of contract will he demand and receive? While most of the attention is on Prince Fielder, general managers are working the phones in private preparing to make deals on the other 113 free agents still without a contract for the upcoming 2012 season. Welcome to Baseball 2012 where rosters seemingly change daily and the final destination for a number of players will not be determined until the dust settles and Spring Training is underway in February.
When the 2011 season ended there were 181 unrestricted free agents on the market. Since then sixty-seven have either re-signed with their former team or signed contracts with a new team, leaving quite a few in a state of uncertainty as the season approaches all too quickly. One-hundred and eighty-one players, most with families, all with possessions and vehicles and homes, now preparing for a relocation to another part of the country and knowing that once a transaction has been made they will have very little time after the holidays to take care of all facets of that relocation. And did we mention Spring Training? Not only do these players have to relocate to a new city but they also have to relocate to the Spring Training facilities prior to the season beginning, so in essence two relocations will be happening within the next two months.
To most of us that is such a daunting task that we can’t even imagine what it would be like, but to a professional athlete this is just part of professional sports. Baseball is a game for sure but it is also big business and relocation is a part of that business.
