I finally got through my password issues and can now officially start blogging again (time permitted) This is an exciting and time consuming time for any agent worth their salt but then again there are fools in every field. Then again, the good Dr. Thompson always said "He that is taught only by himself has a fool for a master.” Moving on. I am dealing with Free Agency, preparing for the winter meetings in Las Vegas (I cant believe that this is a good idea, prepare for some alcohol induced trades)and everything else that I do every day of the week. I signed another Brewers prospect from the Fall League beating out many other "established" agents in addition to getting ready for Thursday, the day 40 man rosters are set. We'll see what happens, but we did have a Yankee client added to their roster this month.
I just moved to Ft. Lauderdale with my dear friend from high school. It's got a movie theater vibe to it. I have always collected signed movie posters and have proudly displayed my signed posters from.... Pulp Fiction, Memento, The Big Lebowski, Gangs of New York, 21 Grams, The Dark Knight (ledger is on it) Chasing Amy, Sin City, Reservoir Dogs, and 28 Days Later. Watch all these movies NOW if you havent seen them.
I got to talk to Barry Melrose former head coach of the TB Lightening the day before he got fired and had one of the most bizarre exchanges of all time. I'm ESPN's John Buccigross's agent. Bucci and Melrose worked together on NHL2NIGHT. I told Melrose when I met him I was John's agent to which he replied...."You must be a miracle worker since John still has a job." I called Bucci and let him know what Melrose said to which he replied...."Melrose will get fired before I do!" Well 24 hours later Melrose was in fact fired and Bucci still has a job. I cant help but feel responsible. Or not.
Also got picked to GM a historical fantasy baseball team for seamheads.com I have no idea what the hell I'm doing but Im in good company though I failed in an epic fashion selecting the marlins/drays
