Best Players – Ben Musial, Matthew Bravo, Ramiro Trevino, Lorenzo Fernandez
Team Rankings – 4th Offense, 21st Pitching, 12th Fielding
Team Notes –
OK City Pain – 64-98
Best Players Guillermo Molina, Tommy Webster, Terry Cummings
Team Rankings 13th offense, 25th Pitching, 9th Fielding
Team Notes- A Solid hitting team, their pitchers lack of control really kept this team from competing. They have some real stars in their minor league system though. Paul Burrell looks to be a Miguel Tejada clone, and Wes Davies is another stunning prospect who has power and speed. This team off-season priority is obviously going to be to improve their pitching staff and then let their position players develop. It will be a surprise if they make the playoff next season, but success isn’t too far off.
Best Players – Glen Kubenka, Julio Guerrero, Joshua Slocumb, Alex Suarez

Team Notes –
Sante Fe Locomotive 61-101
Best Players – Derrick Flynn, Joe Borchard, Phillip O’Malley,
Team Rankings – 7th Offense, 31st Pitching, 31st Fielding
Team Notes - Sante Fe was season 3’s big surprise when they missed the playoffs on the last day of the season, but the season they couldn’t find that same magic. They have an imposing lineup that is lead by Derrick Flynn, but that can’t make up for the fact they only have one pitcher on their roster that posted under a 6.00 ERA last season. They play in the worst pitchers park in the league, but they still have to find a way to keep the ball in the park. They do have two highly touted young pitchers in Brant Stevenson and Jesus James, but they both got lit up by the ML competition last season. They have more help on the way in their minor leagues like Paul Ma, Pedro Mesa, Ruben Dali, and Lee Durham – but their best minor leaguers are position players and they really need pitching and defense.
