Jun 25 2050: New GM Appalled; 'My team sucks!'
- by Shocked_n_Awed on May 28th, 2021
The recent acquisition of the Lincoln Park Wolves by a new ownership group was unheralded in the press. In part, because the former Cup Champions have been lackluster to say the least as of late. Also in part to the new owners hiding from the media.
Finally, we've caught up with new general manager Shocked_n_Awed, and he didn't mince words when talking about the team.
"We absolutely are the suckiest bunch of sucks I ever saw play baseball," he said, choking back tears following yet another series loss. "We can't hit, we can barely field the ball, and don't even get me started on the pitching."
No doubt, Wolves' fans won't be happy to hear the appraisal from the fresh front office. But it can't be any more disappointing than results this season so far.
"I've walked into a few tough spots before with clubs," Shocked said, "but being handed this lemon takes the cake. Having said that, with enough time and effort, any ship can be turned around."
The new management team has already made a few draft picks this season they hope, with some time, will make a difference on the diamond.
"We've brought some new arms in, college kids mostly, with tons of upside," Shocked continued, "and we have a couple of guys just under and around 27 who will probably hold onto their jerseys, because they don't seem to be the reason we can't win anything. But two or three players does not a baseball team make; they need support, and the dummies they're out there with offer as much support as a leg brace made of cotton wool."
So as dark as days are now, Shocked hopes he can get himself, his team, and the fans, looking to a brighter future.
"I think we're at least two seasons away from fielding anything even close to a contender," he said, "and we're nearly halfway through this season - I don't know if we can save ourselves from relegation. I'm not even sure we want to. All I can really do at this point is promise commitment to the cause, and ask for patience. We'll get better. We can't get any worse."
