I'm here to show you the Major League Market. It all started when the Bosses split up from a large ... uh... 'syndicate' over a little issue called the 1919 World Series. The Bosses who split off didn't want nothin' to do with it so they created the Major League Market.
What is it? It's a stock exchange that deals strictly in securities on pro baseball teams and players. The Market runs 24 hours a day, from spring training all the way through the playoffs. At the end of the season, each stock is redeemed for cash according to player or team performance. But throughout the season, only demand will drive prices up and down. You buy when you want, sell when you want. That's how savvy traders make all that money.
Unlike fantasy baseball, you can invest in players and teams. In fact, there's so many guys around here trying to make a deal on the side, you can run your portfolio any way you like. Louie, he's got a whole portfolio full of pitchers. Louie knows pitchers. Guys like Paulie like to watch the market real careful, and pounce on technical stuff that means money in the bank to him . I don't even know what that moof is talkin about half the time. And some traders, like Boris, are strictly team-dealing guys. Buys teams he thinks are going up, shorts teams he thinks will choke.
You may be wondering why I'm telling you all this. The Bosses have decided to open their exchange on the internet anyone who wants to trade. They figure it's more money for the taking. It takes guts and luck to beat the Bosses at their own game, but if you think you can do it, you're welcome to try.
