Style Make Splash In Late Signings
The Brewville Style committed $861 to seven players in the late signing period on Thursday, highlighted by five-year committments to Carl Crawford and Todd Helton.
“We’re serious about putting a quality team on the field,” said owner Steve Egge. “It takes some money to do that, and we are trying to use our resources in the best possible way.”
Crawford and Helton join Jake Peavy as Style players that received over $250 in total contracts on Thursday.
Another owner, who asked not to be identified, stated “Brewville had been sitting on their money somewhat, and apparently it started burning holes. I was stunned to see them spending like that, though they brought in some top-notch players.”
In other big-name signings, Brandon Webb rounded out the Edwardsville Armada’s pitching staff by agreeing to a $225, five-year contract, and Lance Berkman agreed to a similar, $235 over five years deal with the Arkansas Cardinals.
“We needed a big starter to balance out our top-notch relief corp,” commented Armada owner David Reed. “Brandon will provide a lot of leadership and a lot of wins in Armada blue.”
