However, the resolute GM emphasized that they refuse to give up on the 2060 season. Despite being eight games behind, GM Lucera expressed her commitment to turning the team's fortunes around. "It wouldn't be fair to Calvin or Enrique, with this being their last year, and it wouldn't be fair to our fans who have stuck with us through thick and thin," she declared with conviction. "Andrew and I have formulated an action plan, both for our current roster and the team's future. We refuse to settle for a last-place finish. We are here to win."

Yukon Yellowjackets Show Strong Start to 2059 Season
Yukon, Canada - The Yukon Yellowjackets are off to a great start in the 2059 season, currently sitting atop the East division with a 7-3 record. This comes after a disappointing end to the 2058 season, where they finished third in the East division with a record of 83-77.
Despite the team's struggles in 2058, three Yellowjackets players - Montano, Churchill, and Cuevas - made the all-star team, with Montano even being a contender for league MVP. In addition, Degeno won the gold glove in his final season with the team, and last but not least, Ho was named rookie pitcher of the year!
As the new season began, Yukon's GM Lew made some tough decisions, releasing Degeno, Cuevas, and Flores. According to Lew, "their pieces no longer fit the puzzle." These moves were necessary to create space for new players and improve the team's overall performance.
The Yellowjackets' strong start to the season is a testament to the hard work and dedication of the team's players and staff. GM Lew remains optimistic that the team can carry this momentum through the rest of the season and compete for a playoff spot.
"We've got a great group of guys who are committed to winning," Lew said. "We're taking it one game at a time, but I believe we have what it takes to make a deep playoff run this year."
The Yellowjackets will look to continue their winning ways as they take on the rest of the league in the coming weeks. Fans can follow the team's progress on social media and the official Yukon Yellowjackets website.
