There is not one that sees you valuable enough to let you take up a spot on its 40-man roster. Once a player comes to the realization that there is no major contract out there for him, his next step is to work with his agent to identify teams that are a good match. A lot of phone calls are made, and if your player doesn’t make a team, there is no financial reward.
They see you as guy worth taking a low risk chance on. Players don’t pay commission on minor-league salary, only big-league salary, and agents don’t charge on anything earned below the major-league minimum.
WHETHER YOU’RE CELEBRATING a Happy Valentine’s Day or a Happy Independence Day this Friday, there are some simple rules for singles and daters to follow that can help make it the most romantic and fun one yet.
I’ve successfully coached loads of single guys and gals in these dating secrets.

Like every other Sox fan on the planet, he couldn't understand one simple question: Why didn't Grady take out Pedro? You would call them on the phone, explain to them calmly that you can't take it anymore, let them down as gently as possible, then move on with your life. Of course, the TV networks and newspapers got what they wanted: They spent the entire month gleefully rehashing those same "Curse" stories for both the Cubs and Sox, flashing graphics like "RED SOX WORLD SERIES WINS AFTER 1918: 0" and showing so many Babe Ruth pictures, you would have thought John Henry Williams had brought the Babe back to life. Fox even made Boone's brother a guest announcer for the Sox-Yanks series -- apparently, Plan B was one of George Steinbrenner's kids. But the 2003 Cubs didn't lose because of a goat, and they didn't lose because of poor Steve Bartman.
While they might all appear obvious at first glance, you’d be surprised how many daters make things extra hard on themselves by not following these few simple rules.
By taking a bit of extra care, you can enjoy a much more fun Valentine’s night and increase your chances of meeting that special someone.
