Mayberry and the Mermaid

When we were watching the Derek Jeter HBO documentary last month and they kept showing his then-girlfriend Minka Kelly, my wife asked me how they met. I said I had no idea, but I figured Jeter is probably in the position where he can see any gorgeous woman on TV or in a movie, have his people call her people, and make it happen in a matter of hours.

I guess other baseball players do the same thing, according to a leaked email by his agents to the representation of an attractive young woman who played a mermaid in "Pirates of the Carribbean 4":

I hate to even be sending you this e-mail, and I’m quite embarrassed to say the least, but we have a young client on the Philadelphia Phillies who asked us if we knew any agents at Innovative Artists and could connect him to Antoinette Nikprelaj. I know you’re not a dating or set-up service, but John Mayberry Jr. (Phillies OF) would love to meet Antoinette or invite her to a baseball game sometime. Would this be possible?
Here’s a bio of John to give you some more info on him (he’s a great guy, down-to-earth, humble, Stanford-educated, etc.) Thanks for considering this as you know how this business is and servicing clients.
My only reaction to this is that Mayberry should probably fire his agents, for letting something moderately embarrassing as this become public.
