S12 - Baseball talk (®)

2019-04-07

Tampa Bay - As a GM in Buffalo insinuated, I got some other love than porn in life.. Baseball. As a Red Sox fan nothing is more pleasing at my eyes than seeing the Bronx Bombers beat records of mediocrity like they did this week. The pinstripes dummies tied their franchise record for most stikeout in a game with 18 times  against the sorry Detroit Tigers. Man that was a great moment in my week, that put a little bandage over the dreadful beginning the Sox are having. The teams scores a lot of points but the starting pitchers are almost as bad as the buffalo sabres second half of the season (NHL 2019). I tought that 18 strikeouts would be the most I see by a team this week......but the free agent signing would bring some troubeling news in Tampa

GM Ouellet made over 30 offer sheets to some great talents in the market, a few considered those offers but to our big suprises none of them were accepted. Yeah you heard you 0 in 30 attempts.. 30 strikeouts (still less than a Stanton has in a 4 games series) About 95% of those offers were the maximum that anyone could offer with the 4 years plan and 150% increase in salary, but each of those rat bastard chose an other city (usually Saskatoon of all places). Thoses guys will have a bitter suprise when they land in Saskatchewan and winter comes.. it will be worst than those white walker in game of thrones. I am sure that a few of them will regret not chosing the sandy beachs of Florida and roller skaters in bikini by the ocean, Sure they will certainly have a better chance at the cup but after the game, in their pick up truck trying to navigate in the snow blizzard they will cetainly think about the chance that they missed of returning home in a convertible car.

Now the organisation will be putting their focus on the skills camp and gaining some AP to reinforce their line up. Since the team is full of youngsters, there is a lot of room for improvement for each member and they will have a lot of ice time to showcase their talents with the help of a few veterans. Since no new players joined the team, the line up that was scheduled at the end of the draft will stay the same.

Ouellet may look bitter on the decisions of those FA's but he wishes them all of the success in their new uniforms. The Lightning will be putting their best performance trying to show those FA's that they missed a good opportunity of joining a good squad full of potential.

Now let's get back to baseball 3-3 in the bottom of the second , one man on 2nd with two outs for the Diamondbacks.
