Cobras Sign Lucas Myers To $51/3-Season Deal
Earlier today the San Francisco Cobras and veteran free agent Lucas Myers agreed to a $51/3-season deal. Myers has been in the league since JAL 13 and had spent his entire career with the Bay Area Fog (now known as the Green Mountain Sasquatches).
In JAL 14 Myers was an American Conference All-Star, but in JAL 15 (last season) he missed every game due to outside obligations. Throughout his career, Myers reliability has been a big worry for franchise managers, and after last season's missing of the entire season it looked as though nobody was going to take a chance on him again. The Cobras though, have obviously decided to take the risk.
The Cobras have reportedly been interested in Myers for several weeks. His ability to give the team more batting depth was apparently the prime reasoning. For the Fog, defensively, Myers was their ace pitcher, but will now serve as a strong backup option to a Connor Vermilyea with San Francisco.
With this signing the Cobras now have the highest payroll of any team in the league at $64.50. The Express are second at $64 flat. The Cobras also now have a full five player roster.
Despite adding Myers the Cobras are still ranked #3 in the power rankings below Cowlitz.
