Sep 26 2033: 25 Games To Go, Sharks Aim For Winning Record - by levittmike on September 26th, 2017

It's been almost 4 years since the Sharks finished with a winning record. With 25 games to go, the team sits 1 game over .500, and manager Hugh Culbertson is aiming to keep it that way.

"The guys have played great since I arrived, and I anticipate the same performance to wrap up the season, maybe even better as players vie for spots for next year" Culbertson said.

Culbertson has a 24-16 record with the team, which with Tucumcari having a .642 campaign, would put the team in closer proximity to compete with the division.

Next season, the team will need to address the right handed averages. When facing Lefties, the team average is well over .300. Right handed mid .200s, and weak in the Outfield.

"We will look at the OF next year" Culbertson said.

Short of the Generals collapsing at the end of the year, it's unlikely the Sharks will

Aug 03 2033: BREAKING NEWS: BUDDY MCQUEEN FIRED - by levittmike on September 11th, 2017

The Sharks have relieved Buddy McQueen of his managerial duties, and replaced him with unknown rookie manager Hugh Culbertson.

McQueen was with the team for almost 2 seasons, but the team has not returned to it's every other year of winning, since HOF manager Roy Carpenter was let go.

GM Levitt thanked McQueen for his efforts, and said that Culberson will be the manager of the team "for the long-term."

Jul 12 2033: One of the Last Scorpions having another stellar campaign - by levittmike on September 5th, 2017

Crazy Denny O'Donnell, one of the last Sandy Scorpions draft picks on the Sharks' roster, is in his final season, before retiring.

"Crazy has been the ultimate teammate" GM Levitt said in a recent interview. "From Rookie of the Year, to a gold glove, to one of our champion pitchers, Denny has been the heart and soul of our pitching staff."

Not always the # 1 ace on the team, O'Donnell is as consistent as they come. Other than the 2030 season, where he missed a few games to injury, O'Donnell has consistently approached 200+ innings.

Long time Scorpions/Sharks Manager Roy Carpenter chimed in on O'Donnell's success.

"If I could have a team full of Crazy, I'd win more championships" Carpenter said. Denny is a joy to manage, and he's even a greater person."

O'Donnell not one to speak with the media often, shared a few comments earlier today.

"To have the opportunity to start and finish my career with one team is very special" O'Donnell said. "We've had our success with this franchise, and I'm thankful that I was part of that experience."

When asked what his favorite moment with the team was, O'Donnell pondered for a moment and then said "2027, and not because we won the championship, but because I had 4 complete games and 23 quality starts that year. I was in a groove" O'Donnell laughed.

See you in the Hall, Crazy.

May 10 2033: With Multiple Injuries At Third, Team drafts Valentin Quintanilla - by levittmike on August 19th, 2017

The Sharks seem to be struggling with injuries, and at Third Base especially.

"The season is starting with a nasty injury bug" Manager Doug McQueen said at this morning's presser.

"The team looked at our minor league roster, and we are heavy in Outfielders, and had zero players that play Third." That's a huge problem, so we addressed it.

Drafting Valentin Quintanilla was quite a steal. Scouts say he's HOF potential, so the future will be bright.

GM Levitt boasted about Valentin Quintanilla. "Val will be our every day Third Baseman in the future. Happy (Patrick D'Alessandro" was a draft pick of ours, and he's definitely going to the HOF, and Val looks to be made of the same fabric" Levitt said.

The team is 5 games back, which considering the injuries is quite good.

Oct 24 2032: Sharks Finish Strong, but finish one game out of 3rd - by levittmike on July 18th, 2017

In a season that most would classify as a losing season, the Santa Ramon Sharks finished 7-3 in their last 10 games, but still finished 4th in the division.

Buddy McQueen expressed thanks for his team's effort down the stretch. "They could've mailed it in, and not played hard" McQueen said. "But these guys are professionals, and they played like they were in the playoff hunt. It demonstrates the character of these guys."

The team doesn't know what division they will be in next season, but there's hope that it will be a division where they can compete again. "That's our hope, but we won't know for a bit." McQueen said.

GM Levitt wouldn't say if the team would make big changes in the off-season, but there is going to be some huge holes to fill in the pitching rotation over the next couple of seasons. "Our guys are starting to get fitted for their rocking chairs" Levitt joked. "We're going to lose a few hall of famers over the next year or two, so hopefully our (minor league) system will provide us the next generation of Crazy O'Donnell and Mean Greene."
