Another winning month puts as at an amazing 72-36 heading into August. However, that's just three games ahead of Terra City, who is also playing great baseball. The Capitals have gotten remarkable pitching from Mario Gonzalez (14-3, 1.63 ERA) and acquired Josh Betters (15-3, 1.96) at midseason. On our team, Ron Closser is up to 5.2 WAR and now has 29 homers and 83 RBI. Nick Myers is close behind with 82 RBI and a .313 average. While the offense remains the best in the TBL, our pitching has come a long way and is currently fifth best in the league. This has become a rotation without any significant weak links, with fourth starter Greg Reck 8-3 with a 3.10 ERA, and fifth starter Antonio Iglesias 9-5 with a 3.80 ERA.

Isiah Ibeh, Myers, Closser, and outfielder Scott Moon made the all-star team. Moon actually is currently serving as our fourth outfielder as Kerry Hammond has returned to the starting lineup.

We continue to slice through the TBL like a hot knife through butter. The Titans are now an incredible 91-45, nine games in front of second-place Terra City in the division. Just another 19-win month for you... Jonatan Moss was the Player of the Month, with a .400 average and 11 home runs. Ron Closser is up to 37 homers, 104 RBI, and 6.4 WAR, first in the league in that category. Isiah Ibeh has 18 wins to go along with a 2.98 ERA. Josh Ralston has been outstanding in his second season as the closer, with a 2.32 ERA and 44 saves. A remarkable aspect of this team is that it's doing it without huge contributions from former Player of the Year Matthew Kerrigan (.270/10/43) or former face of the franchise Kerry Hammond (.276/8/39).

I actually didn't make any trades at the deadline. Why tinker with perfection! Our pitching staff is totally healthy (knock on wood) and leaves us with a Class V rotation that is better than many in the TBL- Jessie Puls (who I sent down solely to manipulate his service time- don't tell the players' union), Ian Mohr, Josh Vitalis, Bryan Whitcher, and Matt Eatmon, all of whom have been respected prospects in their own right.

While we have the Western Conference in hand (I think), the East is a dogfight, with Adamond, Freeton, and Silverley all within two games of each other. The Bruins' Chris Milner (.320/42/103) has a decent chance of winning his second triple crown.

The Titans are going to the playoffs! A 16-10 record capped off an amazing 107-55 regular season, besting the team record of 106 wins set exactly 100 years ago, in 1905. That edition of the team was the fourth consecutive to win the TBL West- and the fourth consecutive to lose the TBL Championship Series. We'll see if the 2005 Titans have better luck.

There were plenty of heroes on the offensive side of the ball, as we led the league in runs scored once again. Despite a slump late in the year, Ron Closser led the club with 39 homers and 112 RBI, to go along with a .391 on-base percentage. Jonatan Moss was right there with him, with a .392 OBP, 38 homers, and 110 RBI. Nick Myers was another imposing presence in the line-up, with a .384 OBP, 29 homers and 110 RBI himself. The big breakthrough came from Chris Arguello, who hit .295 with 27 homers and 98 RBI to go along with stellar defense at second base, his new position. Not to be outdone, our new third baseman and leadoff hitter Bill Naumann had a .371 OBP, 31 stolen bases, and a league-leading 39 doubles.

Not to be outdone, our pitching staff came a long way to finally reaching its potential this year. Steady Isiah Ibeh led the way with a 19-8 record and a 3.38 ERA. Antonio Iglesias won 17 games with a 3.87 ERA; I'd love to re-sign him, but I honestly don't have anywhere to put him next year! Jessie Puls was very effective in his rookie season, 10-6 with a 3.59 ERA. Josh Ralston was a beast as our closer, with a league-leading 50 saves and a 2.52 ERA.

Chris Milner did in fact go on to win his second triple crown, hitting .320 with 49 home runs and 121 RBI. I have no idea if he'll win the Player of the Year- as his 6.4 WAR was just tied for fifth in the league.

We go on to face the defending champion Silverley Mustangs in the championship series. Silverley won 93 games, taking the East by two games over Adamond. Pitching is their calling card, as the allowed the fewest runs of any team in the league this season. Vebjorn Kusk (10-9, 2.82) and free agent signing Chaz Tucci (15-7, 2.57) make for a formidable duo at the top of the rotation, and midseason acquisition Chris Holley (.273/34/106) provides some punch in their otherwise anemic lineup- in fact, the last four spots in their lineup are all hitting .229 or worse.

Well, the Titans fell victim to the OOTP Curse- the one in which if you are 14 games better than a team you are playing in the postseason, that you are guaranteed to lose. The Mustangs took the series in six games to win their second straight championship, leaving Titans fans devastated.

Game One: Titans 2, Mustangs 1. Isiah Ibeh outduels Chaz Tucci, and Rob Bowker drives in both runs with a double.

Game Two: Mustangs 5, Titans 4. Chris Holley hit two home runs, and a ninth-inning comeback falls just short.

Game Three: Mustangs 3, Titans 2. Holley's sac fly in the ninth inning won the game for Silverley.

Game Four: Titans 13, Mustangs 9. Ron Closser unloaded for two home runs, driving in four to pace the offense.

Game Five: Mustangs 3, Titans 0. This time Tucci got the best of Ibeh, with a complete-game shutout.

Game Six: Mustangs 4, Titans 2. Nick Buotti's home run put Silverley up for good, and Sean Bartell struck out to end the series with the tying run on first base.

Nonetheless, John O'Rourke Jr. was thrilled with our performance overall. My contract was extended- but I was asked to take a pay cut to $700K! Hard to figure this guy out.

Around the league, Chris Milner was named Player of the Year for the third time in his young career; he's now up to 271 home runs, at age 27. Mario Gonzalez (20-7, 2.47) won the Pitcher of the Year. Chris Arguello, Ron Closser and Jonatan Moss all won Platinum Stick awards for us.
