Same Old Swing

New York - Another season is set to start, and after a pretty uneventful FA for the Swing...The roster will remain pretty much the same as they did last year. One of the big stories out on Manhattan is the re-signing of Thomas Stanley. Stanley, who has been with the Swing for 5 seasons thus far, inked an extenstion worth a total of $41,400,000 over the next 4 seasons. GM Nate Songer was asked about the importance of the signing and his response was as follows: "We reached an agreement with Thomas to keep him in a Swing uniform for years to come. We honestly thought we would have more competition in the market for his services, but were pleasantly surprised we didn't end up in a bidding war with another franchise. We feel the compensation package not only will keep Thomas well paid, but also won't hinder any future financial moves to set us up for the future. All in all we are happy one of the best scorers in the league will be coming back to Manhattan at somewhat of a hometown discount." Nobody in the Swing war room could answer why no other teams really looked into signing Stanley, but were happy with the overall outcome. 

          The Swing were also extremely excited to ink a new deal with recently acquired big man Tony Griffith. He will remain with the team until 2027. Coming back to Manhattan for his 8th season will be SF Ezra Ney who still remains the longest tenured Swing man, signing a 2 year deal to keep him with the club. Rumors are Manhattan is still looking for a couple more players to sign before the end of FA, but as things look at the current moment...Manhattan will look pretty much exactly the same as they did last season. Next report will come live from Swing training camp where we will check on the progression of Craig Dvorak, the newly drafted Swing big man, who looks to play some meaningful minutes off the bench. Until next time.
