Oct 04 2040: A South Dakota Celebration!
- by blackfire83 on May 16th, 2019
Champagne corks were popping well into the night as the Vermillion Dragons celebrated clinching the Eastern Division title after their victory over Kearny last night. Manager Scot Allen praised the team for their effort in recovering from a mid-year slump to rattle off 17 wins in their last 20 games.
Owner Dan Snyder praised the General Manager for coming in mid-season and making moves that both shored up the veteran roster, and began a build-up of the farm system. Upper management is excited about several of their draft picks from this year, as well as the development of younger players such as Jordan "Big Country" Patrick, who had a stellar pitching performance just the other night.
Coach Scot Allen said that the team will continue to push hard and prepare for the eventual playoffs, but will cycle some younger players into the major league lineup to get them some valuable big league experience.
May 03 2040: New Management in South Dakota
- by blackfire83 on April 5th, 2019
Dan Snyder took over baseball operations of the Vermillion Dragons recently. He stated that he seems a team with potential to win now, but also noted that the window to win will probably be closing soon. He inherits a fairly bare farm system and will be working closely with his scouts in order to find young players to develop in the minor leagues.
From Day 1, Snyder clashed with manager Quentin Morgan, who presided over a 115 loss team last year. Despite a better start to the 2040 season, Snyder dumped Morgan and brought in Scot Allen, who has a reputation as a solid big league manager, but who also has a better eye on development of younger players.
