As was reported earlier yesterday, in a shocking yet ultra clever and maniacal move, El Conquistador has landed the biggest wiffle free agent on the market in Ross Bennett. Bennett will don the devil red for the 2014 tourney campaign after wanting to test free agency after learning the Honey Badgers would not be making a tourney run this year. Bennett and the Diablos have common ground in that last year's tournament ended in early disappointment for both. Says El Conquistador "Hell yes I'm mad...and I'm not going to take it anymore. If you think we're all about beer and doughnuts, you're sadly mistaken. We were raging that there were no jalapenos to go with the f@#$ing nachos last year. Look, everyone knows RB's talents, and now we know he's taking his talents to the Diablos...unquestionably the most storied franchise in wiffle ball. Love us or hate us, and for the majority it's the latter, we go after the best. And when the best are available, you make a move. Now get the camera out of my face fu%^wad". Team Stag appeared to have its panties in a wad over the move and called it "desperate". Bennett looks to become only the 2nd player in WBWS history to win the crown with two different franchises as Stag 1B Ty Spaeth became the first to win 2 championships...one with Stag last year and one previously with the Diablos. Bennett seems excited to make a run at the 2014 crown with his new teammates as indicated in the accompanying press release below:

Disappointed after 2 sub-standard tournament showings, El Conquistador is putting it all on the line trying to acquire the hottest free agent on the wiffle ball market, LH slugging, power hitter extraordinaire Ross Bennett, currently employed by the Honey Badgers Wiffle Ball Club. According to El Conquistador, Bennett is the perfect fit for the Diablos mash and bash lineup and would infuse a jolt into what is an otherwise already HOF lineup... Says El C "RB has been on our radar for some time. It just so happens that I caught wind at the little league park last night that he is potentially a free agent. Obviously from a GM standpoint, it would be ridiculous and irresponsible for me to not entertain and pursue Bennett to become part of the Diablos". Although nothing is official, reports are out that Bennett is demanding a multi year deal that would include a number of perks as mentioned in the recently released press release below....
