In Monday’s Roster of the Month, Dan Epstein outlined the unbelievable quantity of expertise that has accepted non-roster invitations to large league camp. These guys took non-guaranteed sam Levinson agent contracts in an try and earn their approach onto an enormous league roster by their efficiency in spring coaching. It’s a formidable fictional squad within the combination, and it obtained me considering that it might be able to beat the Marlins, a lower than formidable real-life MLB membership. The outcomes have been shocking.
First, we have to determine easy methods to quantify the efficiency of Dan’s NRI group. Really, it seems that step zero is determining what to name Dan’s NRI group. That’s a preposterous title for a membership (although Dan might disagree). The most typical which means for the acronym NRI is non-resident Indian, which refers to individuals from the nation of India residing in the US as non-residents. Excellent, our fictional group is from India. We will’t name them the India Indians as a result of there’s already a group known as the Indians and there’s in all probability some logos related to that title. We will, nonetheless, borrow from the Indian Premier League, the preferred cricket league on the planet. The reigning IPL finals champion is the
Chennai Tremendous Kings.
Step Zero is full. We now have fictionally expanded the MLB by including the Tremendous Kings of India. Their journey schedule could also be hellacious however their nickname is unbelievable. Additionally, take a look at their brand. That’s only a
tiger. (Editor’s Observe: It’s clearly a lion. What are we doing right here?)
