"If you're not moving, you're just standing still", said SwinGERS GM Jason Gerwig this afternoon as he consumated a deal with the Baby Gorilla's that sent Kevin Youklis, Ryan Braun, and Nick Markakis to the jungle for Miguel Cabrera, Andre Ethier, and Jermaine Dye.
With the SwinGERS needing a power surge in their lineup, acquiring Cabrera, Ethier, and Dye certainly will fill that need. "That's an area we've been losing each week", proclaimed Gerwig as he exited his palatial estate in Ukranian Village, "this upgrade should add a few volts to what could be a powerful lineup in the second half".
With the Baby Gorilla's in dead last in PG East, a move had to be made to shake things up. "Unfortunately, things haven't worked out as we planned this season, and we're struggling", said Gorilla's GM Jim Clark, "when that happens you can't stay stagnant, you have to keep fighting". With an abysmal 49-74 record, the Gorilla's certainly lost some power today but did pick up batting average capability, along with a little more speed.
"I've always liked what Mr. Markakis has brought to the table, and I look forward to seeing him in a Gorilla uniform, said Jim Clark, "i'm sorry to see a fellow Sun Devil leave in Andre Ethier, he'll be missed".
