With the seventh overall pick, Frank’s Shanks selects Corey Belanger
Frank McCabe: This pick may surprise a few, but it shouldn’t. It’s Corey’s time. Had an incredible minor league career and is amped and ready for the ‘Bigs’. Corey adds a new dimension to Frank’s Shanks; an added edge one might say. That edge? He owns a bar. Every great team needs to know how to unwind and celebrate success. Corey will be that player that gathers our squad – in victory and defeat – and provide those much needed libations to pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and get back at it. What the hell am I saying? I don’t know. Oh, one other advnatage, CB is strongly endorsed by a couple of Lowell, eh hem, heavy weights named ‘Bach’ and ‘Cali’. I bet Van Pech can’t make the same claim? Of course, we may need to change our team names to Major’s…and our motto to Four Lowell, From Lowell…One Lowell? I don’t know?
I am hoping Corey will bring this type of leadership and wreckless enthusiasm to Frank’s Shanks and the City of Lowell.
Ned’s Take: I think this is the point in the draft where Frank’s family sits him down and reads him letters of support. Fantasy points are out the window. We’re strictly measure blood alcohol content for the Shanks from here on out.
