We head into the all-star break with a 64-44 record overall. This is now four games back of Stephens, so still very much in the hunt. But we lost Arran Macrae and Sam Cooke for the season, so our pitching is even thinner. Our top prospect Vince Huffman has joined the rotation- Huffman was our top draft pick back in 2009. Mike Beavers, Erik Badinger, Chris Arguello, Mike Predmore and Ron Closser all deservedly made the all-star team, as did (inexplicably) Sean Heideman, who has a 4.28 ERA in middle relief, and Mike Whitlock, who has -0.4 WAR and was selected to the starting lineup.

Sungate has opened up a six-game lead in the TBL East, with a 73-35 record thus far. Shortstop Kee Seems is making a bit to take back the Player of the Year award from his teammate Yan-hao Tso, with a .297 average, 31 home runs and 92 RBI.

At 79-57, we're five games back of the Stephens Rattlers heading into the last month of the season. Crazier things have happened... Chris Arguello is having his usual excellent season (.295/25/82). Erik Badinger is still hitting .338. The Mikes (Beavers, Predmore, and Whitlock) are all playing well enough- I ended up giving the 27-year-old Whitlock a four-year extension for $14M/year.

Looking up at the Rattlers, I think they'll be hard to beat. Daniel Cover continues playing well, and last year's Pitcher of the Year Jahiem "Moondog" Leveston is looking likely to repeat, with a 19-4 record and 2.68 ERA.

In the end, no one was going to catch up with the Rattlers, who finished with 100 wins. We ended up in third place with 88, which wasn't bad considering our pitching staff, but not quite where we wanted to be. Over in the TBL East, Sungate finished 107-55, so it will be quite a battle for the championship this year.

Mike Beavers led the club with 5.3 WAR, while Chris Arguello and Erik Badinger also had excellent seasons. William Dodge pitched well enough, though his ERA didn't reflect it.

The Sungate Falcons won the TBL Championship Series in seven games over Stephens. This was their second straight championship. Falcons shortstop Kee Seema did win the Player of the Year (.298/45/126), while the Rattlers' Jahiem Leveston won the Pitcher of the Year (20-7, 3.18). Among the Titans, Mike Beavers, Chris Arguello and Mike Predmore won Platinum Stick awards. Erik Badinger won his second straight batting title with a .335 average.

Owner Mike O'Rourke Jr. wasn't so happy with me this season so I'm playing on just a one-year extension. Looking ahead to the offseason, I'll decline Sean Heideman's option, ending his 11-year largely successful tenure with the team, which will free up a little bit of money. But we have many holes to patch, in the rotation, the bullpen, and in the outfield. This will be the last years under contract for Chris Arguello, Ron Closser and Mike Beavers, so the 2014 season might really be the end of this era of Titans baseball.

2013-14 offseason

We signed a few bargain free agents this year. Two pitchers will join the Titans, starter Nate Click for one year at $4M (with a team option for a second year) and reliever Raul Perez for one year, $1M. Outfielder and 2012 all-star Elwood "Hitman" Huntingford joins the team on a minor-league deal. And I traded minor league reliever Pete Moffitt to Freeton for 24-year-old Jaheim Darcus, who looks like a capable fourth outfielder.

It appears to be a deeper rotation this year, but the top end isn't as strong, as Jessie Puls and William Dodge continue to get older. Sam Cooke, who was re-signed at the end of the season, will be on the DL for the first half of the season as he recovers from a torn ACL.

We're predicted to finish just sixth in the TBL West this season. However, our owner thinks we should win it all. Our offense still looks pretty darn good but we'll see if the pitching can keep us in games. Thankfully we're pretty healthy heading into the season.

The farm system remains hopelessly barren, the worst in baseball. After Vince Huffman graduated to the majors last year, our top prospect is pitcher Danny Nese, #24 overall.

Business as usual for us as we lead the league in scoring through the first month of the season. We are 16-11, three games back. Chris Arguello leads the league with 25 RBI and Mike Whitlock is right behind with 24. Erik Badinger is hitting .365, and William Dodge is 5-0.

I have good leads on re-signing Arguello, Mike Beavers and Ron Closser, all of whom would be free agents after this season. Arguello appears likely to accept a one-year extension for $21M with a vesting option at the same value for a second year. Beavers will sign for two years at $15M and a team option for a third. And Closser would take $9M for a year with a vesting option for a second. All in all this would keep three of our best (but aging) players in the fold for a few more seasons- and at a much lower price tag than I expected.

An even record in May leaves us at five games above .500. We're six games back of first place, behind Crestmont and Sidney City. Chris Arguello is having a great season as usual, with 15 home runs and 48 RBI. Mike Whitlock is hitting .351. Quon Ngui has been effective at the back of the rotation, with a 2.19 ERA and 3-0 record.

We went heavy on the outfielders in the draft- our top four picks were all outfielders. Powerful Amari Okoro was our first round pick, but third-round pick Junior Ingwersen (who is asking for $5M) may be a better prospect overall.

We're now 11 games back at 43-39. It's the usual story where the offense is good but the pitching is not. Mike Beavers continues to age incredibly well, with a .321 average, 15 home runs and 46 RBI. At nearly 38 years old, he is still a premiere hitter and can hold his own behind the plate. He's already easily the league's best catcher of all time, and with nearly 100 career WAR he has an outside shot at catching Declan Macleod (113.5) for the all-time lead in that category. Mike Whitlock and Erik Badinger are both also hitting above .300. Dustin "Elastic Man" Munsterman has been effective in his second year as the closer, with a 2.97 ERA and 16 saves.

We've fallen well out of the running at this point, with a 9-17 record leaving us four games below .500. Oof. Mike Beavers, Erik Badinger, Chris Arguello, Mike Predmore and reliever Mike Schuster all made the all-star team. We actually have a pretty good run differential (+54) despite our losing record. While the core of the team is locked up for one more year, I may see if I can sell off some pending free agents, like Devin Munsterman for example.

Bryant and Sidney City are both well out in front of their respective divisions. The Scorpions haven't made the playoffs in over 40 years, and the Warriors haven't won a championship in over 50, so we'll at least have a champion who hasn't done it in a while.

Just kind of playing out the string on this season as the Titans have fallen to 66-70. Mike Beavers is third in the league in WAR with 6.8. Mike Whitlock and Erik Badinger are both hitting over .300. Whitlock had been a borderline call for an extension candidate last season but appears to have been worth the investment thus far. William Dodge has been steady at the top of the rotation, with a 13-9 record and 3.79 ERA. Jessie Puls has gone down for the remainder of the season.

I traded away outfielder Elwood Huntingford to Uniontown for reliever Baden Saggers in a swap of A-grade names. Huntingford was only under contract for this year, while Saggers has three more years of team control. He's a decent reliever, nothing special.

We finished 80-82, a disappointing 26 games back of Sidney City. Mike Beavers had a magnificent season, hitting .312 with a .421 OBP, 36 home runs and 101 RBI, and will be in the running for Player of the Year. Chris Arguello was great, but not quite as great as usual. Erik Badinger continued his outstanding play at first base. Ron Closser hit 24 home runs and while his average tumbled, still had a .359 OBP. The pitching was at least relatively healthy, if mediocre.

The Bryant Warriors swept the Sidney City Scorpions to win the TBL Championship Series. A pair of Kostan pitchers, Eryx Louganis and Zenobio Economopoulos, were among their top players. Sungate's steady shortstop Kee Seema won this third Player of the Year award, hitting .298 with 41 home runs, while the Falcons' Bill Teter was the Pitcher of the Year with a 15-5 record and 2.18 ERA. Mike Beavers took the Platinum Stick at catcher, our only award winner this year.

Chris Milner hit just 16 home runs this year and with his skills declining, will not break the all-time record. Seema himself, with 263 at the age of 28, has an outside shot at the record, and with four straight 9+ WAR seasons has 58.8 on his career, which is already halfway to the all-time record of 113.5.

For the offseason, I'll look to shore up the pitching staff. Some of our young pitchers, like Danny Nese and Vince Huffman, should be big contributors next season.

We had one big signing this offseason in 27-year-old shortstop Alberto Castro, who has 27 WAR through his first six seasons in the league with the defending champion Bryant Warriors. Castro is an outstanding defender, can get on base and has good speed. While Cowal Yair has held down the position over the last few years, Castro is definitely an upgrade and will shift Yair to a reserve role. At $15M/year for three years, he wasn't cheap, but should be worth the money. We were in the hunt for ace starter Seth Barlow, but his price tag was ultimately too steep, and we settled for pitcher Anudrutti Swani and backup catcher Dan Metcalf, a five-time all-star.

Owner John O'Rourke Jr. is angry with my performance, so I may not have much time left with the Titans. I would say that things are looking up somewhat compared to last year. Our farm system was unexpectedly ranked #8 overall, and pitcher Danny Nese was double-unexpectedly ranked as the top prospect in baseball. The 23-year-old Nese has a stellar fastball-curveball-changeup combination and will start the season in the rotation. The only worry is his control, but his raw stuff and work ethic should get him by.

We are projected to win 85 games. The lineup remains solid- with good hitters through the infield, we're able to bat the aging but still powerful Ron Closser eighth in the lineup. Rookie Brian Underwood, an outstanding defender, takes over in right field. The rotation includes new addition Anudrutta Swani, who's a bit of a troublemaker, but Vince Huffman, Josh Zorn, and #24 overall prospect Ricky Miller Jr. are ready to step in if needed, giving us more starting pitching depth than we've had in a long time. Jessie Puls had a setback requiring offseason surgery and will miss the first half of the year; he's pretty well cooked at this point, though we still owe him $48M unfortunately.

We've run a 19-8 record going into May, best in the TBL. We lead the league in scoring with 148 runs, which is no surprise, but we're actually first in run prevention thus far with only 97 allowed! Rookie Danny Nese has been amazing, winning the Pitcher of the Month in his first month in the bigs with a 5-0 record and a 2.72 ERA. Mike Schuster has settled into the closer role with 7 saves and a 2.84 ERA. Brian Swint and new addition Alberto Castro both are hitting above .300 at the top of the lineup.

We've lost Chris Arguello to an abdominal injury, but he should return in the middle of this month.

Another winning month puts us at 35-20 heading into June. This is five games ahead in the TBL West- let's see if we can hold on for one last hurrah for our aging veterans. It's been a good start for William Dodge, who like Danny Nese is 7-2. Chris Arguello is back and hitting .358 in the early going. Brian Swint, Mike Beavers and Mike Predmore are all off to very good starts.

We drafted collegiate starter Bill "Three Finger" Chrisinger with the #7 overall pick. Our fifth-round pick, high school pitcher Bill Roseberry, appears to be a prospect of similar quality, and we'll put $6.5M of our budget surplus towards his bonus.

It wasn't a great month, but at 48-34 we are tied for first place with Crestmont at the midpoint of the season. That's actually the best record in the league right now. Danny Nese has been awesome in his rookie year, with a 10-2 record and 3.11 ERA. Mike Beavers has paced the offense with 20 home runs and 51 RBI. Unfortunately, Vince Huffman is out for the season with surgery to fix a bone spur.

We blew ahead of the competition in July and are now 65-43, three games ahead of Crestmont. We might just pull this off. Steady Mike Whitlock leads the teams with a .325 average. Danny Nese has kept up his pace with a 13-3 record and 3.22 ERA. William Dodge, in the last year of his contract, is 11-5 with a 4.12 ERA. Chris Arguello does appear to be declining and is hitting .274 with just 14 home runs.

After falling behind a bit in the division, we surged ahead again with five consecutive wins to end the month. We now enter September with a 78-58 record which is two games ahead of Sidney City and Stephens, with Crestmont just a game behind them. This season has gone a little differently for us, as our offense is ranked just fifth best, and the pitching is seventh. Mike Schuster has been very good as the closer, with 32 saves and a 3.01 ERA.
