Today, Louisville Sluggers GM, Genius Hopkins, confirmed the end of twenty-seven year-old utility man, Gabriel Flores' glorious Sluggers' career, as he has sent him down to the Johnson League's Las Vegas Hustlers.

Flores burst upon the Louisville scene, in September 2026, when he was handed the reigns to the Sluggers' starting shortstop position from incumbent, Paul Regret. Flores held onto the starting position for most of 2027, smacking 21 dingers and committing only 9 errors, posting a +5 ZR, while playing the most demanding defensive position in baseball. But in September 2027, another fresh faced youngster appeared in Louisville, shortstop Sean Maguire.

2028 found Flores reduced to playing mostly against left handed pitchers, and the utility man endured a disastrous season at the plate, as he saw action at every position but catcher and pitcher.

It's gotten progressively worse every season for the once highly touted prospect; an acclaimed international amateur free-agent signing, who once tantalized scouts with his promise of big league power, and other worldly glove. He's grown up to become an offensive liability, and an average option in the field.

"It's really sad who Gabriel has disappointed me,"confirmed the Genius,"He really let me down. But maybe he can find his career again, in that less competitive league."

The Louisville Sluggers called up twenty-five year-old reliever, Ken Clark, from their Reno AA team and put him on their AA Alabama Slammer team to complete the roster switch.

We FLH and FLP managers may not agree on everything, but at least we can agree that the FL>JL!

Stating the obvious is sometimes still necessary.
