Rany with one of his longest works yet. He really wants to sign Grienke, but doesn't think it will happen.
What I found more interesting then everything though was the following quote:
"Baird didn’t get Beltran signed to a long-term deal, but as it happens, it wasn’t for lack of trying, or even for lack of succeeding – negotiations with Beltran were proceeding well until factors outside of Baird’s control intervened. (The more I learn about the Allard Baird Era, the more I’m convinced that the Allard Baird Era was not the fault of Allard Baird.)"
I'd love to hear that story.
