Looking back, I feel like the 2016 IronPigs season was a success. We had a winning team, lead the division at times, and made the playoffs. It’s not like half the teams make it in baseball, either. Sure, I wasn’t happy losing in the playoffs–and certainly not by getting swept by Scranton–but overall, a successful campaign.
So what do I need from the Phantoms this season? Is winning a few games enough? Is simply making the playoffs for the first time in 8 years enough? In Wilkes-Barre and Hershey they strive for Calder every season, and anything less is considered a failure. In a newspaper piece from last season, failure to win the cup is sighted as a major reason why the Baby Penguins have suffered at the attendance gate. Should we settle for anything less–even in light of our recent futility?
