Here's the story, as told by them...
"Yesterday locker room man coming to us from company Topps. He saying we sign contract. We telling him we not reading this english. we say he have talking JB sir. He saying he talking JB sir and JB sir say OK signing.
So we signing this thing and he give me and Dinesh $5.00. Then we finding out JB sir not knowing this. Man from company lying to us.
We never making same mistake like this again.
We giving JB sir the heart pains and we very sorry. We not signing nothing unless JB sir or Pirates asking us."
Turns out JB misunderstood the guys and they were actually supposed to meet with the representative from Topps... but here's what stood out to me... they only got $5.00? Sounds like someone's taking advantage of two confused foreigners...
