If Einhorn wins Reyes must agree to play for a year's supply of Shake Shack burgers with a player/team option to renegotiate for fries when his contract is up.

When first told that Einhorn is a poker player, Pelfrey, an avid card player himself, said, "Tell him to come to the back of the plane—bring his wallet." But a few seconds later, when told Einhorn finished 18th in the 2006 World Series of Poker, Mike Pelfrey had second thoughts, saying, "He can play with [shortstop Jose] Reyes then.''
