THE MEDIA TAKES YOUR SILENCE AS AN AFFIRMATIVE AND WRITES THEIR STORIES AS SUCH!   







Well shit... I'll let you handle things.

And shit apparently needs to be handled. Ill get to it coach and circle back with you.



Tri I need Bill Moore and Noe Larios in my office right now.



Boys I need to hear it from you both. Is the media writing lies or misleading the public? Was there an altercation between the both of you be it verbal or physical?  I need your sides on what happened if anything. Youll each get a chance to say what occurred without interruption. Noe I want you to go first.

BOTH PLAYERS FILE INTO THE OFFICE, THEY SIT DOEN IN TWO SEPARATE CHAIRS IN FRONT OF YOU. AT FIRST, THEY SIT IN SILENCE BEFORE BILL TALKS.





Just frustration is all.

Excuse me one second Bill.



GM Pancho exits his office and heads for the hallway. He asks Tri which direction Noe is headed and pursues him.

Noe what are you doing?! You cant just walk out of my office without saying anything. Was it because Bill was in the room or was it because of my no comment with the media when it came to your job. Either way I cant address the issue if you dont talk to me. Tu ya sabes que hablo espaol. So talk to me in any language but talk to me

I say Im pretty confused as two why two of my players are fighting with each other. I say Im confused as to why one of those players still hasnt commented on what happened.

As far as Im concerned youre the closer.

But I cant go to bat for you if you dont talk to me about what is going on. It makes it difficult for me to do that. So can we go back to my office and try this again?  I still left Bill Moore in there to come after you.

Orale pues. Pero si pasa otra pelea otraves con cualquier persona no va ir bien para las personas responsable. Sta bien?

Ahora regresa al locker room.



GM Pancho walks back to his office finding a still sitting Bill Moore

Okay Bill. You tell me its frustration. Noe tells me its water under the bridge if it is for you. Im happy to leave everything just as it is. I understand the sport can be overwhelming and sometimes we run off emotions.

But if I ever got word of another locker room incident in the media it will not go well for those involved. You got a problem you bring it to me or coach and let us handle it. Is that understood?

Now while you are here in my office. Anything I can do for you?

Hmmm peach cobbler - cant say Ive had the pleasure. Thanks for coming in Bill and thanks for balling out this season. I understand your frustration but baseball more than any other sport is a marathon and not a race. Its easy to ask for patience but even more difficult to use it. Im going to ask anyways. And by all means come talk to me should you feel frustrated again.

Alright then. Best be on your way.



Tri can we get Coach back here in my office?



Coach Hurley - do you think it wise to keep Bill Moore as our third pitcher? Maybe the bullpen is taxed by Hammonds the start prior? Think that would make a difference and how would Hammond take it?

I think Hammond knows hes not performing as well as Bill. I like having Bill as our rubber man pitcher, but maybe moving Dusty down to our third starter will rejuvenate him. Your call.

No I actually prefer him as our third pitcher as well. The move would only be helpful if it impacted their performance. Dusty is going to have to figure it out on the mound.

Were going to stick to the gameplan rotation wise. For the lineups I leave that in your hands coach

WEEK SEVEN

1. Discuss the latest series.

It's proven to be a difficult season for us.  We were treading around .500 but now we are headed in the wrong direction of that.  It wasn't a sweep but the bright spots right now are few and far between.  Hammond did a fantastic job trying to keep this series close as I'll expand on that later.  Our bats are disappointing right now.  I've got two hitters above .250 in that last lineup.  We're still leaving too many men on base.  The point is we are not capitalizing on moments that are there for us to take and that's even more disappointing than never making an opportunity

2. Talk about at least one piece of news.   
 
This is where I'll expand on Dusty Hammond and first let me say I'm glad he's finally recognized because he did this last series for us as well except in that one he only went 8 IP and not the complete game.  Dusty is a bright spot of our future and I know early in the season he got roughed up.  He's come back from that personal misfortune to deliver back to back performances that were amazing.  Whatever Dusty is doing I just hope its contagious and the rest of the locker room catches it.

3. With the creativity some teams have explored such as starting your ace in Game 3 and using an "opener" approach. If you've used one of those strategies, will you continue them? If you haven't, will you start? Why and why not? 

Anything is on the table.  They call baseball a mental chess match played out on the field.  We've seen other leagues take RP and start them to give a different look to lineups. I'm not committing to any ideas - but I'm also not dismissing any either.  We are certainly not in a position to do that.

4. Talk about your opponent this week. Which one of the games is the most important to win for your team?

We travel on the road to Albuquerque and we need to bring our A game.  Despite being 8 and 13 we are only 1 game out from the division which is amazing.  We still have one opportunity left right in front of us that we have to take advantage of.  Albuquerque has that same opportunity as they are only one game behind us. 

Now I want to take this time to address the elephant in the room. My own performance here in Mexico City has been appalling.  I've been distracted, I haven't made Mexico City a priority which is shameful because this is my home.  A man can never be a man if he doesn't spend time with his family and I have been neglecting my family. Mi Raza.  I make a recommitment to Mexico City - I only hope the coaching staff and the players can buy into me because it is very hipocritical of me to ask them to buy into a team that I have neglected.  I accept my own faults this season.  And I stand here promising to do better.

Thank You.

Any further questions?

We're willing to give you one last chance to earn our trust. Really frustrating out there, not being able to get these wins. I'm afraid we need another reliable bat in the lineup. Relying on our pitching each week is't really working out.

Our bats have gone dark. Im thinking about ordering a large quantity of rum just to offer to Jobu so he can help us wake the bats up. Ill let my actions speak louder than my words. Ill do what I can to secure a bat but Im thinking Brooklyn stealing our batting coach has had a bigger impact we intended.

Nothings off the table though. What do you think about bringing anyone up? Is someone like Tony Carter have the spark we need? Or should we really be looking at other rosters?

We can certainly try and see, but I honestly dont see too much spark a Tony Carter can provide. But Ive been wrong before.

Pretty much everyone outside of Scherman. Nobody else is batting .300, but Whitehouse and Fetterman have had moments of success. It definitely wouldn't hurt to give Carter a try in the lineup, if you can make the money work.

Im trying to make some moves Coach but either way I feel I need to address the team before we head onto the field. I did it for the press, I did it for you, I should do it for them.

GM Pancho makes his way down to the field. The practice is coming to a close as the coaches instruct the players to gather around home plate. Some players take a knee most continue to stand looking at GM Pancho with untrustworthy eyes.

Gentlemen. Thanks for staying a bit extra before hitting the showers. I owe it to all of you to say it to your faces. Ive been fucking up. My focus has been elsewhere and thats not fair to yourself, the coaching staff, our owner or the fans. You deserve to have a boss whose invested in the day in and day out going on of this team. I wanted to tell each of you to your face that my focus is here. If anyone wishes to speak with me they can after our series.

Despite our record I still believe in this roster. Were better than this. We can be better. We will.

GM Pancho waits for any reactions if any

YOU CAN SEE JOHN SCHERMAN RALLY BEHIND YOUR APOLOGY, HE GETS A FEW GUYS ON PAGE WITH HIM. MOST THE TEAM THOUGH, HAS A WAIT AND SEE APPROACH. THEY ALL GET BACK TO FINISHING UP PRACTICE.
