I am pretty sure that is an urban myth but whether it is true or not there is some accuracy in the concept.<span style="font-family: "Arial","sans-serif"; font-size: 10pt;">A smart organization in any business can turn all but the most negative of events into a positive with smart and decisive management.

The Washington Nationals today announced a two-year extension for first baseman/left fielder Mike Morse, buying out his final two arbitration years.

With pitchers and catchers set to report to Spring Training in a month, Prince Fielder has yet to sign with a MLB team.
