Altercation Leaves Reporter Bruised

Will Costello Return?
October 29, 2042 – Yellow Springs: Outfielder Luis Costello was reported to have pushed a reporter away as he walked into the clubhouse tonight, bruising the journalist in the shoulder as the reporter hit the cinder block wall hard. It is perhaps understandable that veteran outfielder was a bit testy when approached about his future immediately after the ballclub had been ousted from the post season by the inglorious score of 11-4 in a game six that he did not play in, but at present neither he nor the club's front office has had a comment on the incident.

The reporter had asked Costello, who has a player option for $9M to come back to Yellow Springs, whether he would be playing in Ohio come next April.

Having been a full-time player earlier in his career, Costello had been asked to play a part-time, platoon role with the Nine, an act that dropped some of his numbers. That said, his 12 homer, .278/.329/.536 result in 2042 was arguably the best of his past half-decade or so—scoring in at just over a WAR. Rumors have been circulating that the outfielder would forgo his 1-season deal in hopes of signing s contract with greater security. He was said to have approached the team earlier this year and asked for a three-season extension—a timeframe the team seemed uninterested in matching.

“Luis is a quality outfielder, and I’m happy to have him on the team,” said manager Sam Brewington after hearing of the incident. “We all understand our position in the world, and we want to help you (reporters) get your job done, but really, sometimes I think you could have a little more tact. Luis will make his decision on his own time, and I support him doing what’s right for him and his family. That said, I’ve got a place for him on our roster, so I’ll admit to a little bias there.”

The reporter, Ken Bires, from WBYS-13 visited an Urgent Care facility and was given a full examination and a pair of Tylenol.

Those damn Yellow Springs muckrakers. Come to Chicago in the offseason, Luis, where the media is known for its good manners and gentle demeanor ...

Looking at his .250 BA in the playoffs, looks like reporters were the 1 thing Luis could hit in October...

Fake news. Video via somebody's iphone shows that the reporter flopped.

Surprised that Mahaffey did not kick the reporter when he was down on the ground.

He tried but he swung and missed.

Mahaffey only K'ed 171 times this season. He did not hit the 205 mentioned in the over/under in the one podcast.
