August 17th, 2022 - Inglewood Drafts Major Talent - Inglewood Panthers
In his very first move since acquiring the Inglewood Panthers, owner dcon28 made possibly the biggest steal of the draft. In the 2nd round, the Panthers grabbed 17-year-old SS/2B Chuck Burk. In addition to now being the youngest member of the Panthers farm system, Burk is also considered to have the highest potential of any player in the entire organization. Burk possesses plus-plus range, arm talent, and speed, making him an ideal fit at shortstop, and he should develop his hitting skills if given enough time. Burk also likely becomes the Panthers' best prospect, in addition to 21-year-old outfielder Cole White, 18-year-old outfielder Manny Bahr, and 20-year-old pitcher Ricky Steward. Burk is also Inglewood's only prospect on the Top 100 list, coming in at #19 despite only having played 8 games in the Rookie League. Hopefully he can deliver in the coming years and we'll see him in the majors.

August 15th, 2022 - Mid-Season Managerial Change? Good or Bad? - Tuscaloosa Trojans
With the Trojans having a 12-5 record and being in 1st place by 2½ games, you would think the team would be running smooth as silk. Apparently not! Today, April 18th 2056 Ty Cobb, the new owner of the Tuscaloosa Trojans, announced the firing of manager Marc Atkins. The exact reason for this surprising move is not yet known. All Mr. Cobb would say is that it was "due to actions unbecoming a Major League Manager" and "burnt bridges that can not be repaired at this point is very distracting and bad for moral." He also announced Lyle Steele, a 10 year veteran, as his replacement." Steele is as good of a offensive manager as anyone in the game,' said Hitting Coach Derrick Milligan. "A team would be hard pressed to find a manager that can find a way to motivate players to want to get better," Cobb said. "players just want to win for him, Lyle will be a good fit."
