Trundles Retool as Real-life Counterparts Depart

Tribecards Trundles, who have struggling just as bad as their real-life counterparts, The Cleveland Indians, made several moves on Saturday that will once again fill the roster with an all-Indians team.
Manager --David says, "I had left things pretty well alone, as I often do in this league, but with all the changes to the Indians clubhouse, my fantasy team no longer resembled the boys in blue. It was an awful state to be in, but it is the principle upon which I built this team. I'm sticking to it."
Visibly shaken, players from the Trundles shared a few moments as teammates and friends said goodbye. "This was our fantasy team," Martinez said tearfully, "I hope some of the other guys get picked up. The Trundles will have a special place in my heart, but I know our beloved --David was only following the foundation that made this team in the first place."
The Trundles are currently 60+ games behind the leader, and sit in last place in the league. Will these changes help move the team up the chain? Is there any chance of post-season play for the Trundles? The cliche' is "only time will tell," but really, there is little doubt it will happen.
Editor's note: Starting pitcher Lee (still on fantasy team for now, real-life shuffled to Philly) was overheard to have said, "if he just would have let us wear some clothes...." Further investigation is pending.
