Press Releases:

Sep 08 2047: More roster movement - by FreddyThe2nd on October 29th, 2020

Roster update:

With a 12 game league lead we started a movement towards playing younger guys that may eventually start but then we won a waiver for Nishioka.
He will be the DH/back up SS for next season.
Unfortunately he carries a 6.5m salary and we will only be an IV team next season at best.
Money is not much of a consideration in BB land but we still try to turn a profit every season at every level.
So with all that in mind:

Lee was called up from AAA to play OF.
Choi will get the call after the update and will play OF.
Harrell (32,lhb,OF) was a very useful player but has been cut.
Colburn (33,OF) has had a career year but will be cut after todays games and before the update.
Trevino (31,LHP) The toughest cut as pitching is never easy to come by. He also has pitched well but is #4 on our LHP depth chart and the oldest of the four. Cut.
The three above cuts free up 5.55m so we can keep Nishioka for a couple more seasons and continue to make money.

Aug 31 2047: 2047 waiver wins / roster update - by FreddyThe2nd on October 27th, 2020

As another waiver season ends we will post an update. It's funny how you can sometimes "win" a 50 claimer that isn't much more than a back up player while others that are useful as starters for many seasons just slip through the cracks at 10-15 claims.

Roster additions via waivers:

21 claims and 15 claims: speculative young rhp's Wenger and Ramirez (not real high on either)

13 and 11 claims : rhp starter Van Dyke, lhp Pelligrino (my favorite claims both in their prime and gave us some real pitching depth)

13 claim : super DH 31 year old Nishioka (low claims due to uber high salary)

Also noteworthy:

2 claims : back up 28yr catcher Tracy and utility man 33yr Colburn (whom has had such a career year, it's gonna be tough to drop him)

The rest of our claims were all speculative minor league pot 11 and 12 kids.

Mar 14 2046: New Owners in Tombstone - by FreddyThe2nd on June 25th, 2020

2046 Tombstone Red Devils

The big news:

The off season in Tombstone has been a turbulent time.
Over 50% of the roster has changed including the owner and on field coach.
There is not much more room for movement until we come off our roster restrictions, but there will be much more movement expected throughout the rest of the season.-GM FreddyTheEye

We plan to start the season with a mix of youth and veterans.
Our star is 26 yr CF Michael Gustafson.
Other youth of note (we hope) could be 3B Zavala, 1B Hurtado, C Irizarry.
Hopefully we can find a spot for a few of them but position builds are not all ideal.

Our top two young P prospects are Cueto and Jacoby but they are unfortunately both out with 36 day injuries.
A couple of the 23 and 24 yr olds will start at AAA this season as we have quite a few cabable veteran starters including our big free agent signing, 29 yr old LHP Louis Epps.
We will carry a few young armed relievers though and hopefully somebody unexpected steps up.

In the minors:

Our minors are currently filled with mostly place holders.
Veterans waiting to be cut, a few young prospects that may play for the big club, and a bunch of young arms we would like to take a long look at.
Hal Roth could be a pretty good SS if he can learn the position quickly.

Win the division
Develop some young guys
Among our biggest goals and hopes this season is to draft well.
2 or 3 pot 13 keepers would help to replenish the minor system.

Good luck to all in 2046!!
