Next Friday, we will be broadcasting live from the 2010 UF Sports Law Symposium. More information regarding the livestream will be posted on Monday. While you should be able to watch the event in its entirety online, you will miss out on interacting with the panelists and those in attendance if you are unable to show up to the symposium. Still, it is better than nothing. Speaking of UF, check out what Teddy Dupay is up to now-a-days. Pete Parise finished up the Puerto Rico Baseball League regular season with Ponce and was immediately picked up by championship contender, Mayaguez. Dynasty just picked up a client with tremendous upside: Clint Robinson. He could be in Triple A and as high as the Majors by 2010 season’s end. I will be down in Miami for many Super Bowl events and will be back down in Fort Lauderdale on February 20th to speak at the Nova Southeastern Sports Law Symposium. Here are some stories I missed over the past week:
- Expect an unprecedented number of college juniors who declared to go undrafted [Too many college juniors making mistake by turning pro].
- Owners are demanding up to 50% wage reductions and a right to terminate clause that’s easy on their pockets [Lockout would sack assistants Coaches could face big pay cuts].
- Teams that had the most players (8) file for arbitration: Twins, Angels, and Cubs [Lincecum likely to gain big raise].
- The arbitration system is designed to produce settlements [Buckle Up, It’s Arbitration Season].
- Some players do not want to be labeled Type A free agents [How Did Type A Free Agents Do This Winter?].
- Revenue-sharing money finally getting some use [Dan Uggla, Florida Marlins agree to one-year deal worth $7.8 million].
- Great chart that includes player figure, club figure, and “resolution” [Arbitration Figures].
- Is David Falk the early favorite to represent OSU’s Evan Turner? [The Turner watch]
Since we’re on the topic of Evan Turner, check out this fantastic video about him..
