The Killer Bees today acquired Sonny Gray from the Tweeners. The Tweeners received the 18th overall pick in the 2017 Draft.
Gray, who had been one of the top starting pitchers in the league from 2013-2015, struggled mightily in 2016, including two trips to the disabled list. Unreported up until now is the fact that Gray spent the entire season stumping for Presidential candidate Vermin Supreme. Vermin is a registered Republic/Anarchist who wanted to assure that every American get a free pony and that we FINALLY do some time travel research. Gray seemed to be distracted by the killer weekly schedule of stump speeches and photo-ops, just barely finding enough time to pitch. "We think he's past that now," said Beeboy. "The country has spoken, and Sonny has come to terms that this just wasn't the right time for his guy."
