Canter: Yeah, he's out there on the open market right now.
Flanagan: Terrific. Would he be interested in signing with the Orioles?
Canter: No.

Canter: Hello?
Epstein: Hey Steve, it's Theo.
Canter: Oh hey, hi! It's good to hear from you.
Epstein: So you're still representing Horacio Ramirez, right?
Canter: You bet.
Epstein: That's great. I watched the guy pitch pretty often last year, he had some interesting stuff.
Canter: Yeah, he's definitely a unique kind of pitcher. That's one of the things I try to emphasize.
Epstein: He's certainly intriguing.
Epstein: That's why I was wondering, do you think he'd be interested in pitching for New York?
Canter: Absolutely, he'd definitely be interested. Horacio's always wanted to pitch in a big market. He really thrives when he's in the spotlight.
Epstein: That's great, that's great. That's definitely the kind of move I want to make. Let me draw up some paperwork here real quick. Do you have a fax number so I can send it right over?
Canter: Oh yeah, yeah I do. Have a pen?
Epstein: Got one right here.
Canter: Okay. The number is (676) 555-1770.
Epstein: Awesome, thanks! Just give me two minutes.
Canter: No problem.

Canter: Hey wait a minute
