As we enter the 2040 baseball season here in mount Vernon, many things have changed, but some things have not. Alexander Zuberov is coming back for his third year as the owner for the mount Vernon miners hoping to end their 8 year playoff drought. Taking a look at some of the changes, last season the miners finished in 4th place with a record of 79-81. At the end of the spring training the miners announced to the press that they would be moving on from old manager George Howells and announced the signing of manager Ron McCord. 16 games into the 2040 season, the miners are holding their own under the leadership of Ron, competing for first in the division wtih a record of 10-6. Winning 8 of their last 10. Ron had this to say about his first games as a miner. “I am very excited to be a part of this city and organization. Were hungry. Were fighting and It’s excited to see how far we’ve come and how far we can go if we can unite with one goal in mind and that is to win championships. That’s why I’m here.”

Last season did not go right for the Mount Vernon cubs, as they finished the season of in last place and we’re demoted a league level. However, Mount Vernon is coming into this season with tons of changes including a new name. The formerly known Mount Vernon cubs are now the Mount Vernon Miners. Owner Alexander had this to say about the change, “Yeah, last season was a bitter pill to swallow. He had so much potential but we just didn’t jump at our chances. This is a new year, a new league and a new team.” The miners also had several of their veterans retire including Bobby Pasoda. “This is giong to be a good year.” Said Alexander, lets just hope the Miners can capitalize.

The Mount Vernon were red hot. Now, they are in a hole that could cost them their season. The Mount Vernon Cubs have won just 3 of their last 15 games as they continually play the toughest teams in the league. However, in Today’s press conference with owner Alexander Zuberov, he announced that he decided to release Jarrod Brown. Jarrod Brown finished this season off with the cubs with a 12-18 record, one that needs to be better should the Cubs ever want a shot at the playoffs as they are now 11 wins out of first. Resuming Jarrrods role is Barney Bradley. Only time will tell of Barney has what it takes to get this franchise back on it’s feet and into the playoff race.
