    Looks like we might have a changing of the guard this year. The most competitive division in baseball is continuing to get stronger. Feel free to use this thread for divisional banter :coffee:

    Bottom 9, tied game and Chicago walks the back-up catcher to pitch to arguable the best hitter on the team with 2 on to load the bases? Worked out in the end though seeing as you went on to win in extras soxandgators . This would like walking walking Andy Dirks to pitch Cabrera :shifty:

    My team has been layin an egg on the road so far, but we'll get back to the swing of things. Ocampo was off to a slow start, slowly heating up.

    My entire sim is at home tonight, so i'll be looking to gain some ground. What kinda deer antler velvet are the players in CLE taking ? Demo and Eden are out of their minds.

    They'll come back down to Earth. They are only 12th in runs scored, but are supported by currently being #1 in runs allowed. They also had a soft opening month with only 2 series against winning teams.

    Yeah, and KC has their first series vs them next sim. Will be interesting to see if we can cool them down. I spent the majority of last season in 3rd place until after the AS break so its not a sprint its a marathon.

    Well.... sim #3 did not go well. The only silver lining was we lost a lot of close games and avoided the injury bug. We got one of the best base runners in the AL back now so hopefully we start posting some more runs. Team in ranked in the bottom tail of every category but is still 17-17 :wacky:

    Kansas City went 7-2, as i expected, we do great at home but havent been able to put it together on the road though. We go up against TEX on the road next sim so that will be interesting, they are just above .500 on the year.

    This team isn't scoring any runs. Luckily we aren't really giving up any either. We have called up Vargas to play behind the dish and Jose Tappy Tap Leon to roam the outfield. The outfield is definitely are weakness with everyone not named Riley Brown batting under .260.

    After back to back 2-8 sims the Tigers went 6-4 and fixed things defensively. We will not go down quietly. Haven't had many division games so its still a long season.

    I was in 3rd place most of last season so it just goes to show that 1 sim can change an entire season ! ;)

    The Tribe are currently evaluating what they want to do with their bats. It is just June and notorious slow starters like Ron Phillips and Markus Mason are starting to show signs that they're beginning to catch their stride. They are interest in possibly upgrading both the outfield and first base, but not sure if mortgaging the future is worth it just yet. In the arms department Jeremy Hellickson has been a huge disappointment and after a hot start Jacob Dahlstrand is beginning to regress towards the mean. Andres Reyna may soon be called upon. The three headed monster of Bauer, Demo, and Grier is still doing well and will hopefully keep it up. Meanwhile, Franky Rios is closing the door at a superb rate leading the AL in saves.

    Its official. The Indians are throwing up the white flag. Eden Martinez has been shipped to St. Louis for a top 50 prospect. It was likely we weren't re-signing him anyway, so getting a prospect and a cheap replacement for Ron Phillips is big for us.

    Why did you rush him through single A?

    Interested in trading him?
