May 17 2027: Jays Exit Stage Left - by quanin on May 9th, 2016

Cleveland, OH - At the conclusion of the group stage of this season's cup tournament, no one in the Bluejays organization was shocked when the team walked away with an 11 - 9 turnout. Manager Elvis Ewing, it would appear, least of all. "This is one neglected tteam," he said at the conclusion of that team's final cup game - a 7 - 5 affair that needed an extra frame to sort it out. "We knew there'd be hard times when we started. Ownership said as much after spring training. We finished above .500, which was about all we walked into this tournament expecting - and probably more than we'd a right to on days."

The team will turn the rest of its attention to league play, in which they sit at 16 - 17 as the schedule lines up. All eyes will no doubt be on the newest additions when they've finished the last of their assignments and pull in from North Bend. And, as it happens, equally on the room that will be made to accommodate.


Mar 20 2027: Growing Pains - by quanin on April 24th, 2016

The Bluejays released a turse statement at the conclusion of the spring season as they packed up to head back to Ohio. "The decisions undertaken by previous ownership have left us with a not insignificant amount of work to do. This is not going to be a pleasant season. However, as should be made clear by the turnout in spring training, the rebuild is underway. Phase 1 was completed near the end of last season, with the releasing and reassigning of personnel who had no business being where they were. It continued with the promotion of several temporary bodies during the offseason. This rebuild, when it is fully in play, will be a top down effort as we attempt to bring a winning record, and a better balance sheat, back to Cleveland."

The statement was initialed by new Bluejays owner Quanin, as opposed to having been signed off on by their manager. This raises the question of whether or not the manager is considered safe during this rebuild.

*UPDATE*
This just in: Short-term manager Kelly Clymer has been removed from his position. Sources close to the discussion declined to relay the precise reasoning for the firing, citing several statements not fit for print--or most public consumption. When asked for comment, Bluejays owner Quanin reportedly threw the phone into the batting cage, where soon-to-be-departing rooky third-baseman Farr hit it into the second deck. It is uncertain if the phone was still under warranty.
