2042-17: Talons Decide to "At" Every Single BBA GM in Order to Increase Readership of Team News

Post by jiminyhopkins » Sun May 17, 2020 7:34 pm

Phoenix, AZ--

Frustrated by the lack of readership, comments, and likes on Talons Team News posts of late, the franchises' Department of Forum Posting and Electronic Media Department has hatched up a new strategy. Accessing the BBA Forum's member listing, they decided to "@" every one of the Brewster's GM's and say something about them or their team. Will it work? Read on down to the comments (if there are any) to find out!

@recte44 I'll give you 500 dollars for that 1998 Toyota RAV4 (stock number J2247). Cash. Right now. I'll pay extra for Scotchguard!
@7teen Arturo Barron is hitting .197 for you, and thats almost 60 points higher than he did for the Talons!
@Fat Nige Are you the guy they call the Genius? Or was that the other guy?
@JimBob2232 If that Crawdad in your logo is really holding up a baseball, that's gotta be one tiny baseball.
@bschr682 I'm sorry. Every time I see your team name or logo, I think it's Recte. I'm really, really sorry. Really. Seriously.
@aaronweiner I literally can't remember a time when your team wasn't some soul crushing juggernaught. It's scary.
@RonCo LOL remember the days when YS used to post 200 Team News a season? The good old days! I read every none of them!
@indiansfan I love how Liann-wei Mao spells out as LMAO on the home run leaderboard.
@crobillard Edmonton I think has done by far the best out of the four 2029 BBA expansion teams. Congrats.
@bigmike13 'Grats on being the team with the most batting strikeouts AND the most pitching strikeouts!
@bcslouck Sorry for bugging you about Carlton Winson all of those years.
@ae37jr Does the "all-specialist" bullpen work for the Robins? I've tried it before and It didnt seem to make much difference.
@HoosierVic Not really expecting you to comment on the post or anything. I mean, you never do anyways. Right?
@jiminyhopkins Your Team Sucks and Nobody Reads Your Team News
@njherdfan Are you a resident of New Jersey who is a fan of Marshall University football? Because otherwise your name makes no sense.
@Rubaboo We laughed when you called the Talons "Spoiled Relish". That was funny.
@niles08 You seem to be really active on Slack. Thoughts?
@GoldenOne How does one pronounce Jaime Geerdinkck?
@Spiccoli Is there really a river monster in the greater Minneapolis-St. Paul metro area? Pics or it didn't happen.
@shoeless.db Also really popular on Slack. And podcasts. How do you manage it?
@CTBrewCrew Feel free to continue "liking" Talons posts from years ago. It's awesome. I mean, its not like anyone ELSE likes them.
@Joshua Biddle I wrote a Team News years ago poking fun at the way you describe your players in your News posts. I called it a script bot. I still feel kinda bad about that and I apologize.
@leejay56 The man, the myth, the legend. I will never forget Cliff Royer (sp royer) for as long as I live,,,,,,,,,,,,
@StormZ_23 I look up "Z23" and all I get is a bunch of Anime. Care to explain?
@sjshaw All I know about the Sluggers is that Yellow Springs really doesn't like them for some reason.
@drummerJ99 How did you get such good starting pitching?? Asking for a friend.
@DugoutDesperado I admire all of the trades you made to rebuild your team. Takes guts, man.
@Jwalk100 Any team that has McBride and Wullenweber has got to have a good future.
@FuzzyRawley Welp, Don Smith hasn't gotten hurt yet. YET.
@Lane I'll trade my next 5 first round picks for Danya. Oh wait we can't trade draft picks.
@usnspecialist Speaking of trades, how did Feliciano Rafael end up working out for ya? I haven't been paying attention.
@jleddy I just KNOW you'll be the first to like this post.

Who knows. Maybe this post will finally get some traction. Go Talons!

Nice tactic. :) as for your question, you'll have to ask the previous GM. I inherited all these pitchers.

Martinez hit 21 HRs in 50 games for the Talons after only hitting 20 HRs in 91 games for the Canes. Phoenix must have one heck of a hitting coach. :)

Ah, yes, the good ol' days of 200 TN. Heck, I didn't even ready them. They're all just random letters spoken into a speech-to-text program.

I’m not gonna get tricked into leaving a comment on this TN. I mean, how pathetic would it be to just blindly do what Sean’s taunting me to do? Guess I showed him!

@shoeless.db Also really popular on Slack. And podcasts. How do you manage it?
Manage? How do I fucking manage it? Are you god-damn kidding me with this bullshit? I don't manage anything. I'm a rusted out wheelbarrow with a flat tire trying to cart all the rubbish in my head to the edge of the BBA cliff. It takes all my strength to heave the molding and festering thoughts in my slack comments and podcasts over that cliff.

Manage...

What a damn joke.
