Friday Wrap-Up

Shabbat Shalom: Friday Wrap-Up (3/26/2010)

The wrap-up is coming a little later than usual, but no worries, you are getting it before sundown!  It’s been a tough week.  We had a few players released from their MLB organizations.  But we also found good news about the level that some of our guys will be starting at, and we also gained an additional client, who finished last season playing Triple-A with the Angels.  We are working on establishing some new and exciting partnerships in the Bowling Division, and we are talking to many new baseball and basketball players about advising the former and representing the latter.  Unfortunately, my phone decided to die on me last night, so if you have tried to contact me at any point today, I have not received it and will probably never know that you attempted to call me, unless you email me about the communication.  Here are some stories I missed over the past week.
