Jan 13 2056: New season, new expectation - by Bennett11 on July 24th, 2022

Dispite some poor teams that have been put out the last few seasons, GM Tyler Bennett has stated the team is showing growth. “We have made very good picks in the early rounds over the last few seasons. And some of those guys have made huge impacts for our big league roster as of last season.” The team has stripped down its pitching rotation and has cut ties with many vets who have spent time with the organization.

Manager Tyler Rawlings had this to say after his first year on the job. “It was a interesting year, obviously we weren’t in any position to contend since most of our talented players are still in the minors. But we played surprisingly well and we fought hard, I expect the same thing this season and I think we could have a chance.”

Bennet stated in his latest press conference “I have looked in to many free agents and have offered them the chance to play for us, if all goes well, we could have a very well balanced team and give our young guys time to develop rather than rush them. Hopefully we can get the guys we’re looking into.”
