The headline in yesterday's LMT issue was: Declining Game Attendance.
To say that the Lemurs organization is in complete disarray would be an understatement. Team management has, ostensibly, made life a 'living hell' for majority owner Arianna Torres. It's been a little over three years that the Lemurs played their first game in Laredo, but already we have stories of disgruntled employees, infighting between management, police responding to Uni-Trade Stadium to settle disputes, and a lawsuit.
Warring parties were due in court today to present a plan on how to work together. That was the directive from the last court hearing. (I think this was Judge Hale copping out in this matter: adults, you work it out amongst yourselves and I'll sign off on it.) But it's apparent that Holliman, Villarreal and Torres have a case of irreconcilable differences.
A lot of money has been poured into this baseball venture, and all we have to show for it is a bad drama that makes for juicy headlines.
