Sep 02 2033: Managerial Change - by mjreichard on September 19th, 2017

The Knights have moved on from Sam Jones as interim manager and named John "Buster" Cheung as their new manager.

Jones was named interim earlier this year and held onto the post while management interviewed candidates.

The decision was made to give Buster a chance to manage this club for the last month of the season to get a feel for them moving forward. He will need to find a way to balance veterans, prepare prospects and get the most out of a club that has seen 2 straight seasons of struggle.


Aug 08 2033: Top Prospect Called Up - by mjreichard on September 12th, 2017

With the season looking down the Knights have called up their #1 prospect Mel Glover. Mel played over 65 games in the bigs last year, but was sent back to AAA to hone his skills. After hitting .299 with increased power, speed and fielding skills Mel is being given the SS job for the remainder of the season. Current All-Star SS Quentin Skinner will be moving back to RF, where he is more comfortable, with Glover's arrival.

Skinner said "Mel is a stud. He has a great glove and strong bat. He will come up here, learn big league pitchers and get ready to start helping is win again next season. I will play any position I am put, I don't care where I play. I just want to help this team develop and win."

Glover is excited to get up to the bigs. Following team policy, rookies don't speak to the media, but veteran OF, and surefire Hall of Famer, Adrian Fuentes says "Mel looked like a kid who is ready to stay in the bigs this time. He is a serious ballplayer."
