May 29 2033: Racine Releases Bailey
- by 95th Cub on August 24th, 2017
Longtime Racine Bombers pitcher Willie Bailey has had a relatively tumultuous tenure since reaching the Major League level, sometimes showing flashes of brilliance, but in recent years, too often allowing home runs in bunches. Indeed, he actually hadn't allowed that many hits, but the majority of them had cleared the fences too often for the Bombers' taste, leading to Bailey's release.
In his place, prospect Sandy Hawke has been promoted from Star Prairie (AAA).
Jan 15 2033: A Sad Day-Bombers Release Carmona
- by 95th Cub on July 23rd, 2017
Enrique Carmona has been one of the best pitchers the Racine Bombers franchise has sent to the bump, but the 2032 season proved to be his swan song for the club he's spent his entire pro career with, as Racine's front office made the tough decision to part ways with their former ace. They hope Carmona finds work elsewhere, though his diastrous 2032 campaign may scare some teams off.
Jul 23 2031: Vaughn, Wise, Reynolds Given Walking Papers
- by 95th Cub on April 8th, 2017
RACINE,Wis. - In a surprising move, the Racine Bombers have decided to issue pink slips to struggling P Hector Reynolds
, as well as seldom-used young fielders Joseph Vaughn
and Kenith Wise
When push came to shove, Reynolds' 2-7 record, ghastly 8.53 ERA and 1.93 WHIP, combined with the Bombers' recent pitching woes causing them to cede first place to Clarksville, convinced Racine's front office to part ways with him.
Vaughn and Wise, meanwhile, simply weren't seeing the field very often, and in Vaughn's case, he had only appeared in one league game.
Taking Reynolds' spot on the pitching staff is Bryan "Hawkeye" Walter, who had gone 9-5 with 2 saves and a 1.29 WHIP in 25 appearances for AAA Star Prairie. Also called up from the Cloud Punchers was OF/1B Jim Flanagan.
Nov 04 2028: Phelps Shot Down as Bombers Manager; Rogers Takes Pilot's Seat
- by 95th Cub on September 16th, 2016
The Racine Bombers' pitching troubles cost the club its spot in LL V, and the relegation has cost skipper Jason Phelps
his post, and tomorrow, the club will introduce Erik Rogers as its new manager.
While the fielders largely bought into what Phelps was selling, many believe he'd lost the pitchers long ago. Rogers, whose reputation is that of being good with handling pitchers, formerly managed the LL III Midland Dogs, and was let go despite a solid 86-74 record this season.
Owner 95th Cub said that he'd wrestled with the decision for most of the season, as he likes Phelps as a person. "At the end of the day," the owner told the press, "it was just time for Jason to part ways with us."
Nov 04 2028: Lee named Rookie of the Year
- by 95th Cub on September 16th, 2016
The Racine Bombers are being thrown back down to Division VI, but it was not for lack of effort from Dong Yul Lee, as the rookie outfielder, who'd been one of four Bomber fielders to make the All-Star game, not only made the All-League team, but was named V.10 Rookie of the Year in last night's award ceremonies. The speedy Korean was surprised to learn that he'd also finished fourth in MVP voting, just behind teammate George Barker.
Barker and 1B Lester Cameron also made the All-League team.
