Welcome all you Camp fans! The long, anticipated 25th season is finally approaching us! How will this season commence? Will the defending champs, the San Francisco Fish Tacos, come back this year on a mission for another title? Or will another team emerge and stop them in their tracks. However, after some early off-season trades of star players such as Butch Relaford and Quinton Hamilton it seems as if they are taking a new approach this season. I will attempt to get an interview with the owner, jketchum, after free agency comes to a close for some insight on these questionable moves so early on.
The big surprise of last season in the playoffs was the stretch made by the Arizona Diamondbacks. The D-Backs knocked off the top seed, New York Tough Guys, in the Divisional Championship series last season. Owner, wolves16, seemed to be really impressed with his team. A member of our staff got into the Arizona locker room after Game 5 of the World Series. The team was very emotional, yet when the owner walked into the room, he received a big round of applause and the team was very happy about how far they got. They are coming back this season with more experience and look to make another run at it.
On the other side, the Tough Guys were very pissed after their early exit in the divisional round last season. After the loss in Game 5, one of our staff members tried to get a word out of the owner, vjm269, but he refused to talk and fled the scene on the team bus. None of the players would talk to any of the press and we haven't heard much since this surprising exit in the playoffs. The owner must still have not gotten over their loss last season as they have already made a trade this off season. They traded one of their most consistent long reliever, Terry Cora, and 2 former first round picks for a younger, more promising Starting Pitcher, Murray Rolle. All the New York fans are just dying for the season to start and to see whether this early off-season move was the right choice. Once the seasons starts up, we will be able to really see who got the better end of this deal.
Well folks, thats all we got for now, but stay tuned for more Camp news as the season goes on! Free Agency comes to a close on Sunday and we will get out a recap for all you fans to read as soon as possible. Im sure all of you can't wait for the season to start and neither can we here at the Camp Post. Will the Fish Tacos repeat their Championship? Or will the D-Backs come back stronger this season and win it this time around? Or will the anger-driven Tough Guys show what they can really do this season? Only time will tell, so let the madness begin.
