YONGE STREET & TEMPE HOOK UP IN TRADE

 

For Immediate Release
April 27, 1999

MWBL NEWS (Bristol) – The always busy Yonge Street Stalkers are at it again!!  In an early pre-trade deadline swap, the Stalkers struck a deal with the Tempe Tempers.  In his ongoing effort to make the Stalkers younger, owner and general manager Scott Farquharson had a tough decision to make.  In the end, it was one he felt he had to make.  He was quoted as saying “He may be a good talent, but I can’t stand that fat toad.”  Pretty strong words for the owner of a team struggling to a 12-28 record.
Details of the trade:  The Yonge Street Stalkers receive OF Orlando Palmiero, P Sidney Ponson, and the Tempers 1st Round Pick in the upcoming draft. The Tempe Tempers receive P Hideki Irabu, and IF Ed Giovanola.  This seems to be a deal that helps both owners do what they started the year trying to accomplish.  Stalkers owner Scott Farquharson ended this press conference by stating:  “This won’t be the last deal I will make this year, There are only a handful of untouchables on this team”   We’ll keep you informed on this and any deals that follow.

Yong Street Receives Orlando Palmerio, Sydney Ponson, Northridge’s 1st Round pick in 2000.
