Best Players – George Bell, Ernest Strange
Team Rankings – 32nd Pitching, 32nd Offense, 32nd defense
Team Notes – It takes a special team to go on a 140 game losing streak. A team who tells its pitchers on off days that they need to grab a glove and play third base since they only had 5 position players at the ML level. Its not all bad news for
Best Players – BJ Einerstein,
Team Rankings 11th Offense, 9th Pitching, 4th Fielding
Team Notes – Season 2 Championship team, they had horrible luck this year. Their rankings would indicate this team was very successful, but it took a late season surge to assure they made it over .500. What they do next season is one of the league’s biggest questions. Many of the stars from their championship team are leaving for free agency. They will surely acquire many draft picks for these players and it won’t take long for them to rebuild. They only have $30M committed to player salaries next season so they will have plenty of options.
Best Players – Carlos Martin, Sean Hammonds, Rafael Alicia
Team Rankings – 14th Offense, 16th Pitching, 7th Fielding
Team Notes – A middle of the road ML team with a talented minor league system. Not buried under bad contracts, but still has it talented players under contract. The most exciting thing about this team is Rafael Alicia. He’s the odds on favorite to win
Best Players – Tony Tarasco, Mark Ross, Clay Lincoln, Brian Bates
Team Rankings 9th Offense, 3rd Pitching, 3rd Fielding
Team Notes - This team won’t soon forget the sting of a game 4 ALCS – the pivotal game in their 7 game series vs. the Mad Jesters. Down 8-2 in the 9th inning they come back to hit a grand slam and tie the game, only to lose in the 14th inning to a former Funk pitcher. What is scary about this team is they are so young they can only get better. Only two guys on this team were over 30. Tarasco is their first draft pick to really contribute at the ML level, but they have some others like Hogan, Brower, and Galvez that will make it to the big leagues. Revenge will be on their minds.
