Dug Comes for a Visit

Post by Bumstead on December 7th 2012, 2:13 pm

Dug Riddler, Owner of the Tacoma Titans, barges into Jeff Palin's, General Manager of the Tacoma Titans, office. Billy Hillfinder happens to be sleeping in the chair while Mr. Palin is perusing the free agent list looking for middle relievers...

Dug Riddler: How in the world are we going to compete in this league without more than 2-3 effective relief pitchers on the team?
Jeff Palin: Here's a better question Dug: How in the world are we supposed to compete with a budget this small?
Dug: Look, we won over 900 games the last 10 years with a smaller budget than most teams. You need to figure out how to make it work. That's why I brought you here.
Jeff Palin: I don't even have money for Scouting and Player Development. Do you want a 1 year franchise or a long term contender? I can't even negotiate with our best player because I have no money to pay him beyond this season...The payroll the last 5 years has been over $90M...now all of a sudden you drop the budget to $87M???
Dug: You need to make it work.
JP: You are an idiot Dug. I am doing my best but your budget is going right up your ass in the end. Otherwise, we are just going to lose.
DUG: You know you work for me now, right?
JP: I don't have to.
Dug: No, you don't.
JP: Look. We have the best up the middle players in the league, but I had a helluva time filling out the rest of the positions. We have to resign our shortstop.
Dug: Look, we will talk about extensions later, you have got to get this team filled out.
JP: With what? I have no money to work with...Obviously, I am sitting here combing the free agent listing for players. I have been constantly on the phone with them. I have pissed off most of the undrafted middle relievers on the market.
Dug: Get it done.
JP: Hey, why don't you just stay in your office counting all the cash you rake off the organization and I will do the work of putting a team together! How about that Dug?
Dug: Watch yourself!
JP: Don't let the door hit you, you cheap SOB!
