Eleven full season teams did not get invited to be affiliated with a Major League ball club, including the Burlington Bees. Wow! Thom Brennaman got an announcer job in the Roberto Clemente League a five team winter league in Puerto Rico. The Mariners hired Chris Flexen to a two year $4.75 Million dollar contract.

Meanwhile, the Mets signed Trevor “Not Bauer” Hildenberger for their bullpen and Jared Robinson got a minor league deal. Unfortunately, we have missed out on catcher Chadwick Tromp. Just think of all the Tromper Stompers we could have sold at the team store.
