OPENING DAY SHAKEUP IN ROCHESTER

In a shocking trade that perplexed most SIMBL pundits, the Rochester Roosters acquired Josh "Zip" Robertson (above) from the Montreal Mavericks for former franchise face and cornerstone Logan Pickard.  Robertson, who entered the SIMBL as a Supplemental Free Agent in the 2036 off-season, put up three 30 HR/30 SB seasons in Dallas and was one home run away from a fourth, and is coming coming off his worst SIMBL season in 2041 after winning a 2040 UL Silver Slugger Award.  Robertson had an injury-plagued season in 2041 hitting only .243 with career lows of 15 HR 49 RBI and 20 stolen bases.  Pickard, the #1 pick of the 2030 SIMBL Draft and a six-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove for the Roosters in his 11-season career, hit .276 with 29 HR 89 RBI and 39 stolen bases and was named to the SL All-Star team last season.  Roosters GM Matt LaDuke told the Rooster faithful that it was time to 'shake things up' for the Roosters and is favoring his chance of Robertson's extreme talents peaking in Rochester in the risky trade.

The 2042 25-man opening day roster looks different for the Rochester Roosters for 2042 than it it did one year ago. Six spots have changed personnel for the Roosters who went 83-79 last season, good for third-place in the tough SL East where division winner Norfolk and Boston as the SL wildcard both made the postseason.  

On the mound, staring pitchers Ricardo Morales (AAA) and Mitch Evans (free agency signing from Dallas) have claimed spots from 2041 starters Newt Austin (waiver cut now with Austin) and former 2026 #2 overall draft pick and three-time All-Star Jack Callahan (signed Texas in off-season free agency as a Type B Free Agent).

In the bullpen, 2033 and 2039 Middle Reliever Of The Year Reggie Baldwin (signed in free agency from Boston) and Juan Rosas (called up from AAA) take spots previously held by Michael Cross (sent to AAA) and the now retired seven-time All-Star Donald Miller (waiver cut).

The biggest changes are occuring in position players however. Five-time All-Star, 2039 SL MVP and 2041 Silver Slugger 1B Akato Sakata was lost to Oregon via Type A free Agency.  Filling the infield gap is 2028 #11 overall pick Carlos DeJesus, a free agent signing from San Diego.  

And in a trade that shocked the SIMBL, 2030 #1 overall pick, six-time All-Star and three-time Gold Glove LF Logan Pickard was traded to Montreal for RF 2036 Supplemental Free Agent Josh Robertson, who played four seasons with Dallas winning a 2040 UL Silver Slugger Award and putting up three 30 HR/30 SB seasons and was one home run away from a fourth and the past season with Montreal where he hit a disappointing .243 with careers lows of 15 HR and 49 RBI in a career-low 116 games.

When the the Roosters GM was asked his outlook on the upcoming 2042 season, Matt LaDuke had the following to say,  “I am very optimistic about this season.  Although we lost Sakata and Callahan to free agency, we were also able to sign some talent in the free agency to fill some gaps we had.  And as far as the blockbuster Pickard-Robertson trade, only time will tell who got the better deal.  I feel both men have had outstanding careers and have many good years left in their tank.”
