The previous owner at Columbus has done a great job of transitioning to a young team while still maintaining a roster that competes for the playoffs every season. Over the last two seasons he drafted future stars like Infielders Dickie Barr
and Jack O'Leary
. He also began the rebuild of the pitching staff with the selections of Norm Anderson
, Harry Malloy
and Nathan Ewing
. You have the opportunity to build on this foundation while you compete for a pennant every season.
Your team will continue to win because of established vets like, Octavio Martinez
and younger studs like Juan Sanchez
. Bill Clapp
is the leader of the pitching staff. And Valerio Gonzalez
is one of the best closers in the NL. Finally, there are several players currently on the farm ready to contribute for you this season. Jacob Matsuzaka
and Doug Yerkes
should both be ready, allowing you to move some higher priced talent onto the Trade Block.
This is a franchise waiting for you to manage them to the World Series over the next two or three seasons. But you can't do that unless you join.
