SIMBL FIRST ROUND PICKS & DRAFT HISTORY

NEW WHITBY BATTALION GM JAMES LEMON SENDS LEAGUE INTRODUCTORY MESSAGE

Puerto Rico national team superstar 2B Pedro Cendejas Jr. (above) was recently selected as the #1 overall pick of the 2040 SIMBL Draft by new Whitby Battalion GM James Lemon.  Cendejas Jr. is the son of legendary NABF star Pedro Cendejas who starred in that league as one of its top players before the league folded and eventually emerged into the current day SIMBL.  The 23 year-old Cendejas Jr. possesses elite 9/8/8/8/9 potential and is more than 50% filled out and will start out in the Battalion's AAA Buffalo Bisons affiliate.  Cendenjas Jr. possesses elite speed and fielding abilities and is expected to be a rare five-tool player in the SIMBL and the face of the Battalion's rebuild and comeback to SIMBL legitamacy.

Hey All,

I posted a short blurb on the SIMBL Slack Room channel but thought I would also post something a little more meaty here.

As anyone who joins on with one of these leagues I am a huge fan of GM'ing in fictional leagues of various sports. This will be my first major foray into baseball but I am currently a member of a SIM hockey league the NSHL which moves at a snails pace of 1 season per year but is still enjoyable.  Much to my chagrin, my team has sputtered the past couple of seasons after losing in the Stanley Cup final 3 seasons ago. But on a brighter note, I am also in a basketball league the KVBL where my Houston Rockets have lost in the finals the past 2 seasons to a loaded Miami Heat squad. We went all in for this coming season and are hoping to bring home our 2nd championship in a couple of months.

As for Whitby, much like the new Hollywood Stars owner Brian Barrett, I have plans on moving the squad once I am eligible and while I would love to take the team out West and set up shop in Vancouver with the team currently being in the east we will stick with the allignment and hopefully be touching down in Montreal in the not too distant future.

The team as it is has a nice mix of quality vets and some decent young pieces including the just drafted the #1 overall pick of the 2040 SIMBL Draft, Pedro Cednejas Jr. who promises to lead the team back to their previous glory. In my eyes the team is still probably 2 to 3 seasons away from truly competing so in that light stars former first round picks and star outfielders Jeremy Roper )18th overall 2029 SIMBL Draft) and Joey Slater (20th overall pick 2032 SIMBL Draft) have been put on the block to help to jump start the rebuild as they likely would be at the end of their primes when the next great Battalion team takes the field. The one thing you will learn about me is that no one is ever off limits as long as the price is right. I love to trade and while I am patient when it comes to rebuilds I always have a tendency to jump in head first when I see a chance to trade my way into contention.

Look forward to having quality trade talks with everyone in the near future and I am excited to get started in the league.

Thanks,

James Lemon
Whitby Battalion GM
