Amateur Draft

With the first pick in the 2025 Amateur Draft, the Philadelphia Phillies selected SP Jorge Mota from Rice. He's one of the top guys on my list, but luckily, not number one.

1st Round, 24th Overall: SP Juan Mariscal (3.5): He's not great, but the St Ann's High School senior has middle of the rotation potential. He keeps the ball on the ground, and averages in the 90-92 range as a left handed sidearmer. He's got great stamina, three solid pitches, and solid movement. His sinker is his number one pitch, and his fastball is pretty solid as well. He'll sign for slot, and hopefully he pans out for me.

1st Round, 37th Overall: C Gabe Suppa (2.5): Good catchers are hard to come by, so the Catholic Central graduate is my supplemental pick. He's got an excellent eye, makes great contact, and has decent pop. He's calls a good game, but doesn't have the best arm behind the plate. The 18-year-old is likely to stay behind the plate and become a solid big league regular.

2nd Round, 61st Overall: SP Luis Nevi (3): The junior from Wichita State was origionally born in Puerto Rico, but moved to the states when he was 8. He throws a little harder then Mariscal, and also keeps the ball on the ground. He's got solid stamina, a plus fastball, and solid control and movement on all three of his pitches. He's not a top guy, but he can develop into a middle or back of the rotation starter.

2nd Round, 65th Overall: RF Dan White (3): The St. Anne high school senior isn't the best defender, and may end up in left, but he's got great pop and amazing plate discipline. He doesn't always make a lot of contact, but he won't strike out and does a good job of finding the gaps. He's not the fastest, but he's one of the few good players still available.

3rd Round, 99th Overall: SP Andy Neidig (3): He's from Arlington Christian high school, and boasts three plus pitches. His fastball and knuckle curve are equally effective, and like Mariscal, throws 90-92 while keeping the ball on the ground. He doesn't have the high stamina I like, but it's still starter worthy. He's a great example in the clubhous, gets great break on his offspeed pitches, and has solid control.

4th Round, 129th Overall: SS Nate Lewis (2.5): Selected out of Lincoln High School in Brooklyn, Lewis has the range and arm for short, but will never become a great defender. His value is from his bat where scouts differ on his power, but there is no doubt about his contact and plate discipline skills. He's a great teammate, and has all the tools to succed.

5th Round, 159th Overall: 2B Mike Merrill (2.5): The lefty from Cape Fear High School is a type of player I like, one with great speed. He's got a great eye, is a solid middle infielder, and has enough of a bat to get by. He's got great drive and work ethic, and will push himself to keep going to the next level.

6th Round, 189th Overall: C Butch Sewell (2.5): My scout says he has 1 contact, but I doubt that's accurate. He's got nice pop, a great eye, and is a solid defender behind the plate. Another high school pick, he's got a lot of potential, but a long way to go.

7th Round, 219th Overall: RP Alpha Yeboah (2.5): Lefties named Alpha have a good history so far in this organization, so he was worth the pick up. The Texas A&M junior does a great job keeping the ball on the ground despite not throwing too hard. His slider is devestating, and he can become a lefty specialist very soon.

8th Round, 249th Overall: SS Luis Romero (2): The part Cuba 17-year-old might have to move to second, but he can stick at short for now. He's got great speed on the basepaths, has a great eye, and makes solid contact. He's got great work ethic, and his floor is a nice utility guy off the bench.

9th Round, 279th Overall: CF Eric Hdgkins (2.5): He's committed to continuing his education, but he's a solid guy to pick up. He has the range for center, great speed, and a solid bat. He's a doubles hitter with nice pop and he makes enough contact to keep a respectable average.

10th Round, 309th Overall: RP Juan Rosales (2.5): If he works on improving his stamina, he could actually become a starter. The lefty came from UMKC in Kansas City, and has a great change up he gets batters to swing over. He's well rounded and doesn't have a significant plus-plus tool, but he's good enough to fill a pen spot.

11th Round, 339th Overall: SS Chris Knitter (2.5): Says he won't sign, but the speedy shortstop was worth taking a risk on. He's got great range, turns double plays well, and has a solid arm, but he makes a lot of errors. He's got a solid bat with a good eye and nice pop, but he's got to strengthen himslef mentally and physically.

12th Round, 369th Overall: 2B J.J. McCarthy (2): He's a great baserunner, turns the double play well, but isn't the best defender. He's got a great eye and is zeroed in at the plate, but he needs to stay focused on baseball when not hitting.

13th Round, 399th Overall: 3B Jamie Stogner (2.5): He won't sign, but the 17-year-old is interesting. He's got a great eye, will hit his fair share of homers, and has a nice arm at the hot corner. He'll never be a solid fielder, but he won't kill you there. His best shot is to finish at first base.

14th Round, 429th Overall: SP Wally Kennedy (1.5): The Pepperdine senior throws a great change up, and then an average cutter and slider, but can pitch deep into games. He has a deceptive 3/4th armslot with a 90-92 cutter, but doesn't stand out too much. He's a solid pitcher, but don't expect too much.

15th Round, 459th Overall: 2B Jonathan Jones (1.5): He's got great speed, great range, and he makes a lot of contact. He's got a good eye and decent power, but his value is with his glove. He can play a little outfield too, but second is his position.

16th Round, 489th Overall: CF Dave Kimbo (1.5): The CF from Cincinnati finished his senior season with a confrence leading 31 steals to exemplify his great speed. He can stick in center, and has had a ton of experience in the middle of the outfield. He doesn't have the best bat, but doesn't chase out of the strike zone.

17th Round, 519th Overall: CF Danny Tripp (2): He won't sign, but he's an intriguing prospect. I see him ending up in right because of his arm, and while he's fast, he doesn't steal too much. He's got great pop, a great eye, and he doesn't strike out much, but he doesn't always make contact. He hits a lot of 400 feet foul balls and could even walk more then he strikes out.

18th Round, 549th Overall: SP Marc Vella (1.5): He may not end up a starter, as he needs to work a bit more on his endurance, but his stuff is big league quality. He's got a knee buckling curveball that he spots well and throws a decent amount of the time. He may end up a spot starter, but the Florida native shows promise.

19th Round, 579th Overall: CF Jared Morrison (1.5): He could stick in center, but he might be better suited for a corner. He's got great speed and runs the bases well, and has a decent bat to back it up. He lacks the determination to push himself to the next level, so chances are he's just a career minor leaguer.

20th Round, 609th Overall: SS Arturo Castro (1.5): He's headed to the states for college, but the Puerto Rican native owns a great glove and is brilliant on the field. He can play all around the infield, and can end up at short. He's got decent speed and a great eye.

21st Round, 639th Overall: 1B Devin White (1.5): He's got mega power as a lefty, but doesn't have much positional versatility. His bat will have to cary him to the bigs, but he's got the tools to pave a career for himself.

22nd Round, 669th Overall: CF Josh McKenzie (1.5): The speedy centerfielder has a great eye and great pop, but needs to work on his contact abilities. The Glenbard South youngster isn't the best defender and needs to work on improving every day.

23rd Round, 699th Overall: C T.J. Salinas (1.5): He's off to college and also is rated with 1 contact, although I know that's not true. He's not the best defender, and the extra years in college will help with it. He does have nice pop and discipline, but needs to improve the 1 rated contact.

24th Round, 729th Overall: CF Mike Allen (1.5): He's not signing. He's got solid speed and a cannon, and could end up in either of the three outfield spots. He even plays a little first, and could possibly learn third. He's got a solid bat as well, and the lefty has decent potential.

25th Round, 759th Overall: SP Nate Resnick (0.5): He won't sign, but this is to show the talent left. The lefty is nothing special, although he does have great control. I doubt he's going to become much, but he'll get another shot later.

26th Round, 789th Overall: SS Zoello Demopoulos (1): He may get the nod because of his name, but he's an awesome defender with a great makeup. He works his hardest and will eventually get better. He's not the best hitter, but he's got enough of a bat to recieve a big league cameo.

27th Round, 819th Overall: SS Naquan Stiggers (1): He's not going to sign, but he's an elite defender. His range is a little limited, but he's got a cannon and is smooth in the field. He's got average speed, but gets his share of steals. He's got good contact and eye abilities, but has his work cut out for him.

28th Round, 849th Overall: 2B Joel Ramsey (1.5): He's an all right infielder with a great eye, but he needs to work on improving his bat. He's got good power, but I don't know how well it will transalte to the pros.

29th Round, 879th Overall: CF Jorge Mosqueda (1): He's got a cannon and will probably end up in right, although he's got the range for center and of course he can play left. He's got decent power and decent speed and can hit from both sides of the plate.

30th Round, 909th Overall: C R.J. Nidever (0.5): I like him more as a starting pitcher, and the sidearmer has far more upside on this side of the battery. He's got a wicked slider and an average change and fastball.

31st Round, 939th Overall: SP Joe Cox (0.5): He won't sign. He's got four pitches and could end up a starter, but his best chance is in long relief. He needs to work a lot in college, improve his velocity, and make himself more well rounded.

32nd Round, 969th Overall: 2B Dusty Grant (0.5): He's got great speed and the middle infielder makes good contact. He's not the best fielder, but most of the guys at this part of the draft aren't very special.

33rd Round, 999th Overall: CF Danny Humphreys (0.5): Selected from the University of Southern Florida, Humphreys can play five positions, and is a solid bench option. He's got great speed and great range, as well as solid contact ability.

34th Round, 1,029th Overall: 1B Ameirin Amilakhvarov (0.5): He won't sign, so this pick was purley name based. He's got a good eye, but this is one of those ceremonial picks.

35th Round, 1,059th Overall: SP Chris Brummel (0.5): He's not going to sign, but he's got pinpoint control. He's got a nice change and curve, but doesn't throw very hard.

36th Round, 1,089th Overall: CF Danny Squires (0.5): He won't sign. He's not the best defender or hitter, but the lefty does enough to get recognition. College will help him develop better.

37th Round, 1,119th Overall: SP Ernie Mote (0.5): He's got 100 stamina and 65 control, so you can ignore the rest of his poor stats. It's a tools pick, and he has two notable ones. The 18-year-old has a lot of work, but he's got great work ethic.

38th Round, 1,149th Overall: 2B Luis Robles (0.5): He'll head to the state for college, but his bat is worth watching. He's a poor fielder and will porbably move to first, but he's a great leader.

39th Round, 1,179th Overall: CF Jonathan Trytek (0.5): The Desert Christian junior can flat out fly on the basepaths, and has gold glove potential in the outfield. He doesn't have the best bat, but his value is off the bench as a fourth outfielder.

40th Round, 1,209th Overall: SP Steve Caporicci (0.5): The UC Riverside senior can throw a knuckleball that's acutally pretty good. Knuckleballer's are always interesting, and who knows, the 22-year-old can surprise.

There goes the Class of 2025! It's not the best, but who knows what it will turn into.

Looking at the unsigned guys from 2022 and where they ended up:

5th Rounder: SS Arturo Sepulbeda (0.5/0.5): Selected by St. Louis in the 25th Round and then released.
12th Rounder: 2B Sam Holt (0.5/0.5): Selected by Colorado in the 34th Round and then released.
18th Rounder: C Jeff Bryant (0.5/0.5): Returned for his senior year.
23rd Rounder: C Josh Palmer (0.5/0.5): Returned for his senior year.
27th Rounder: 2B Harland Jauregui (0.5/0.5): Selected in the 32 Round by Washington and then released.
28th Rounder: C Kevin Kendrick (0.5/0.5): Returned for his Senior year.
32nd Rounder: CF Brad Maynard (0.5/0.5): Returned for his Senior year.
33rd Rounder: SP Brad Roberts (0.5/0.5): Returned for his Senior year.
38th Rounder: SP Mike Wood (0.5/0.5): Selected by the Yankees in the 25th Round.
39th Rounder: SS Kevin Charles (0.5/0.5): Selected by the Cardinals in the 39th Round and then released.

I hate how all these guys get drafted and then released...

I'm also going to start doing a 5 and 10 year (when it occurs) review of the classes.

In the 2020 class, a pair of righties have made big league debuts. Josh Weske is 2-8 with a 5.48 ERA in 64 innings with 72 strikeouts and 39 walks. Doug Daniels is 1-1 with a 4.50 ERA in 14 innings with 14 strikeotus and 7 walks.

No other 2020 draftee is in AA or AAA. 2nd Rounder Joe Brewer is on Toronto's AA team, 3rd Rounder T.J. Paskert is in Batavia, and 5th Rounder Frederico Soto is in the Brewers organization.

We get tomorrow off before getting back to games!

June 6th-June 12th

June 6th, 2025: I signed 37th Overall pick Gabe Suppa to a $480,000 signing bonus.

The Phillies will be without SP Sixto Sanchez for the year wtih a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament He was 3-0 with a 3.05 ERA and 58 strikeouts in 62 innings.

Philly is our next opponent, and we'd see Aaron Nola (0-0, 0.00 ERA), Jim Gilbert (2-5, 4.75 ERA), and Adam Haseley (1-2, 6.00 ERA). Yes, our former LF who is being used as a two way player.

June 7th, 2025: 24th Overall pick Juan Mariscal agreed to a $800,000 signing bonus.

I outrighted Luis Padilla to AAA.

Half a game out of first, we entered Philadelphia with Jake Florence (3-4, 5.90 ERA, 1.61 WHIP) taking on Aaron Nola (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.60 WHIP) who's making his second start of the season. We were up 2-0, but the Phillies scored 3 in the 7th and won 5-2.

Florence went 6.2 innings with 6 hits, 3 runs, and 2 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve allowed 2 runs in 0.2 innings with a hit, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts.

Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-3 with a run driven in and walk. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-3 a walk and an RBI.

June 8th, 2025: Dan White, my second rounder, agreed to a $490,000 bonus.

Game two saw Steve Paustian (2-3, 3.71 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) face Steve Fettig (9-0, 1.71 ERA, 0.95 WHIP) who is severely over performing. We scored 8 in the 7th and won the middle game 16-5.

Paustian went just 4 innings with 4 hits, 3 runs, 5 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Ramon Perez got the win, striking out two in the 5th. Shoehi Ohtani went 2.1 innings with 4 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Marc Bjork allowed a hit, run, and walk in 1.2 innings with 2 strikeotus.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with 3 runs, 5 RBI's, 2 homers, and a walk. Lazaro Armenteros was 2-for-5 with a homer, 2 runs, and 4 RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with 2 doubles, a run scored, and 2 driven in. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with 3 runs, 3 RBI's, 2 walks, and a double. Mickey Moniak was 3-for-6 with 2 runs scored.


June 9th, 2025: At 34-25, we're ranked 4th in the Power Rankings.

We looked to win the series with Dinelson Lamet (4-0, 1.32 ERA, 0.90 WHIP) taking on Mashiaro Tanka (2-3, 5.72 ERA, 1.29 WHIP). We scored 6 in the 5th and won the finale 9-4.

Lamet struggled, allowing 3 runs in 4 innings with 4 hits, 6 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Perez got the win, an inning with 2 hits and a strikeout. Slade Cecconi got a hold, pitching 2 innings with a walk and strikeout.

Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with 2 runs, 4 RBI's, and a pair of homers. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-5 with a run scored and two RBI's. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a walk and two run homer. Mickey Moniak was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 walks, and a steal. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-4 with 2 runs, an RBI, walk, and steal.

Former Marlin Mitchell White tossed a 3-hut shutout in a 5-0 win over the White Sox.

We're back to half a game out behind Atlanta, and New York, our next opponent, is half a game past us. We'd see Chris Sale (6-2, 3.17 ERA), Noah Syndergaard (3-6, 2.94 ERA), and Luis Marrero (3-3, 4.26 ERA).

June 10th, 2025: We opened the series back home with Mike Soroka (3-6, 3.33 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) taking on Chris Sale (6-2, 3.17 ERA, 0.83 WHIP). It took 10 innings, but the Mets edges us 3-2.

Slade Cecconi left with a hamstring strain, and will head to the DL for about 8-9 weeks.

Soroka went 6.1 innings with 5 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 4 strikeouts. Luis Ardon was charged with the loss, 0.1 innings with 2 hits, a run, and strikeout, but was forced to pitch with Cecconi leaving with injury.

Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a walk and solo homer. Mickey Moniak was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored. Jr. was 1-for-4 with an RBI and steal. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4.

June 12th, 2025: I recalled RHP Cliff Merritt from AAA to replace Cecconi.

Walker Buehler (3-0, 1.77 ERA, 0.82 WHIP) took on Noah Syndergaard (3-6, 2.94 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) as we looked to even the series back up. The ptiching was great, and we came away 7-1 winners.

Buehler went 5.2 innings with 5 hits, a run, walk, and 6 strikeouts. Merritt went 1.1 innings with 3 walks and 3 strikeouts in his return to the majors.

Shoehi Ohtani was a perfect 4-for-4 with a homer, 2 runs, 2 RBI's, steal, and a walk. Seth Beer was 3-for-4 with 2 runs, 3 RBI's, a pair of homers, and a walk. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a steal and sacrafice fly. Mickey Moniak was 2-for-4 with 2 runs and a walk.

C Shea Langeliers hit three homers in a 7-6 Yankees win over the Orioles.

June 12th, 2025: All star update: Dillard 1st for catchers, Moniak 3rd for CF, Ohtani 1st for RF, and Quivers 4th for RP. I don't know how Buehler isn't top 5. He's popular nationally and very popular locally, and is 4-0 with a 1.75 ERA and 0.84 WHIP in 11 starts.

We looked to take the finale with Jake Florence (3-5, 5.68 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) facing Luis Marrero (3-3, 4.26 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). The Mets got 5 in the first, but we held them off 8-6 to win the series.

Florence went 5.2 innings with 6 hits, a run, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Luis Ardon went 1.1 innings with 2 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and a strikeout. Ben Popkin had another rough outing, 3 runs in 0.1 innings with a strikeout. His ERA is up to 7.50 and I need to replace him soon, although I can't option the talented 25-year-old. Jorge Moya got the last out, recoring his 14th save.

Vlad Jr. was 2-for-2 with 3 runs, 4 RBI's, two homers, and 3 walks. Mickey Moniak was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a run, double, and 2 walks.

We have tomorrow off, but I first optioned Luis Ardon to AAA and recalled Patrick Raby to make sure I don't forget. We're 1.5 games out of first, but had a 1.5 game lead on the Mets.

June 13th-June 19th

June 13th, 2025: 4th Rounder SS Nate Lewis agreed to a $240,000 bonus. 5th Rounder Mike Merrill agreed to a $190,000.

We got the day off today, but we'd welcome Pittsburgh to home next. We'd face Mitch Keller (1-8, 5.53 ERA), Ken Haugen (4-7, 4.37 ERA), and Shane Baz (2-6, 4.69 ERA).

June 14th, 2025: We opened up the series with Steve Paustian (2-3, 3.90 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) facing Mitch Keller (1-8, 5.53 ERA, 1.27 WHIP). The game says we have an advantage at every position except pitcher. We took the opener 5-3, and didn't let the now 16-49 Pirates have a lead all game.

Paustian went 5.1 innings with 7 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve got the win, improving to 5-0 with 2 strikeouts in the 7th. Alpha Quivers got the hold and Jorge Moya got the save.

Deshawn Hardamon was 3-for-4 with 2 runs and a solo homer. Mickey Moniak was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, a double, solo shot, and walk. Lazaro Armenteros was 2-for-4 with a run scored and RBI.

Didi Gregorious was 5-for-6 in a 8-7 Red Sox loss to the Mariners. Joey Gallo hit his 400th career homer in a Rangers 7-6 win over the Tigers.

June 15th, 2025: I signed 2nd Rounder Luis Nevi to a $530,000 bonus and 3rd Rounder Andy Neidig to a $170,000 bonus.

We looked to win the series a day early with Dinelson Lamet (4-0, 1.80 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) facing Ken Haugen (4-7, 4.37 ERA, 1.35 WHIP). I have no clue what happened today, and we were crushed by the Pirates 11-1.

Ben Popkin left with injury... He was the only pitcher who didn't allow a run. He went 0.2 innings with a strikeout.

Lamet went 4.1 innings with 5 hits, 5 runs (4 earned), 3 walks, and 10 strikeouts. Ramon Perez went 0.2 innings with 2 hits, 3 runs, a walk, a strikeout. Marc Bjork went 2 innings, allowing a hit, run, walk, and 3 strikeotus. Cliff Merritt went 1.1 innigs with a hit, 2 runs, a walk, and 2 strikeouts.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-2 with a double. Mickey Moniak was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-4 with an RBI.

June 16th, 2025: At 38-27, we fell to 6th in the Power Rankings. If we don't win this series, we should fall all the way to 30th...

The Dodgers traded RHP Song-shil Su to the Rangers for 1B Dominic Smith. I like this deal for the Dodgers.

Houston sent 3B Freudis Nava to the Rays for LHP Braxton Garrett, a former Marlin. It's a pretty fair deal.

We looked to win the series with Walker Buehler (4-0, 1.75 ERA, 0.84 WHIP) taking on Shane Baz (2-6, 4.69 ERA, 1.51 WHIP). It was a close one, but we edged them 5-4.

Buehler went 5, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs, and he struck out 6. Shoehi Ohtani allowed 2 runs in an innings with a hit, walk, and 2 strikeouts, but got the win. Chasen Shreve and Alpha Quivers got holds and Moya got the save.

Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a solo homer and sacrafice bunt. Deshawn Hardamon was 3-for-4 with a double. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-2 with a walk and RBI double. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-3 with a walk and 2 runs scored. Mickey Moniak was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a 2 run double.

We welcome St. Louis to town, but sit 2.5 games out of first, but 2.5 games above the 2nd Wild Card. We'll see Steve Nogosek (2-2, 3.12 ERA), Joe Ross (1-3, 5.74 ERA), and Albert Abreu (0-0, 0.00 ERA).

June 17th, 2025: Ben Popkin tore his ular collateral ligament, and will miss 11 months. I purchased the contract of 2022 8th Round pick Greg Walston. He's tossed 10 innings with 4 saves and a 0.90 ERA to go wtih a 0.60 WHIP in AAA so far.

Here's what I wrote when I drafted him:

8th Round, 245th Overall: RP Greg Walston (3): A college stopper who can shoot up to the big leagues. He's got two solid pitches and can thrown in the upper 90s with his cutter. He's going to be a dependable 6th inning guy, even as soon as next year.

He did shoot up the system, starting in A- and he didn't pitch above A+ before this season. He was great in AA and AAA this year, and in most levels. He's now rated a 3.5/4, with amazing stuff, a 95-97 cut fastball and plus plus control.

Dinelson Lamet wants an extension, but he wants 6-years for $126,000,000. A lot more then the $1.7 million he currently makes.

We opened the Cardinals series with Jake Florence (4-5, 5.31 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) taking on Steve Nogosek (2-2, 3.12 ERA, 0.98 WHIP) who is severely over performing compared to Florence's underachievement. Against another bad team, we dropped 4-2.

Florence went 4 innings, allowing 6 hits, 4 runs (2 earned), 4 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Walston made his debut, a perfect 7th with a strikeout. Chasen Shreve struck out the side in the 8th.

Mickey Moniak was 0-foe-2, but walked twice, stole two bases, and scored. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a solo homer. Vlad Jr. was 2-for-4. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a steal.

Eloy Jimenez of the Mariners improved his hit streak to 20 in a 5-2 win over the Astros.

June 18th, 2025: We looked to bounce back with Mike Soroka (3-6, 3.29 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) taking on Joe Ross (1-3, 5.74 ERA, 1.28 WHIP). We lead 1-0 entering the 7th, and then exploded for 6 in the 7th and 7 in the 8th to finish off a 14-1 win.

Soroka was brilliant, tossing 8 shutout innings with 4 hits and 6 strikeouts. Marc Bjork pitched the 9th, allowing a solo homer and getting 2 strikeouts.

Austin Hedges had a game of his like, going 4-for-5 and was a triple away from the cycle. He homered twice, scored 3 times, drove in 4, and rose his average to .169 for the season. Good thing they love him in the clubhouse and the pitchers love having him behind the plate...

Lazaro Armenteros was 3-for-5 with 2 doubles, 2 runs, and 4 RBI's. Seth Beer was 1-for-5 with a run scored and double. Mickey Moniak was a perfect 4-for-4, all singles, with 2 runs and a walk. Jr. was 2-for-4 with a RBI, 2 runs, and a walk. Soroka himself was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

June 19th, 2025: Fan vote update: Dillard ranks 1st for catchers. Moniak ranks third for center field. Ohtani leads all right fielders. Quivers is up to 4th in relief voting.

We looked to win the finale and series, with Steve Paustian (2-3, 3.98 ERA, 1.51 WHIP) facing Albert Abreu (0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). We were down 4-3 heading to the 9th, but Seth Beer tied it with a walk off. Fast foward to the 11th, and Moniak walked it off with an RBI single as we won the finale 5-4.

Paustian went 6, allowing 3 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and he struck out 8. Wlaston earned a hold, allowing a hit in a scorless 7th. Quivers allowed a run off a hit while getting a strikeout, and Cliff Merritt allowed a run off 2 hits and a walk without getting an out. Marc Bjork got the win, striking out the site in the top of the 11th.

Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a solo homer, walk, double, and 2 runs scored. Moniak was 2-for-6 with a pair of singles. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-5 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-2 with a double and run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a run driven in and walk.

Rangers SS Nander de Sedas hit for the cycle in a 28-10 loss to the Rays. Wow...

Fed up with Merritt, I traded him to the Mets for Luis Delgado with all his money retained. The lefty is injured currently and will head to the DL, but it gives me roster freedom and I have a waiver claim submitted to replace Merritt. He's rated a 3.5* with a wicked curve and is a great arm out of the pen. I'm teompararily calling up Estrella.

We're off to Washington for a four game series with the Nationals. We'll see Cole Ragans (6-3, 4.02 ERA), Gage Hinsz (7-2, 3.13 ERA), Sonny Warner (2-1, 4.78 ERA), and an un-named 4th starter.

June 20th-June 26th

June 20th, 2025: We opened a four game set in Washington with Dinelson Lamet (4-1, 2.37 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) facing Cole Ragans (6-3, 4.02 ERA, 1.38 WHIP). It was a rough opener, and the Nats got 4 in the 3rd to win 7-3.

Lamet went 4 innings, allowing just 2 hits, but with 4 walks and 5 strikeouts. Ramon Perez allowed a run in 2 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. Alpha Quivers allowed 2 runs in the 8th with 2 strikeouts and 2 htis.

Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a triple, run scored, and RBI. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, and walk. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a steal.

June 21st, 2025: I claimed RHP Joseph Jarneski off waivers from the Angels. He's a 3* reliever wtih three plus-plus pitches, starter stamina, and plus-plus control. The Hawaii native has a respectable 3.92 ERA and 1.56 WHIP in 39 innings.

We looked to bounce back with Walker Buehler (4-0, 1.89 ERA, 0.85 WHIP) battling Gage Hinsz (7-2, 3.13 ERA, 1.19 WHIP). Both teams scored single runs in the 1st and 7th, so it headed to extras tied at 2. In the 12th, Seth Beer drew a bases loaded walk, and we edged the Nats 3-2.

Buehler went 6 innings with 6 hits, a run, and 5 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve went 1.1 innings and allowed an unearned run, so technically the game shouldn't have lasted as long as it did. Jarneski made his Marlins debut, 1.2 innings with a hit and strikeout. Patrick Raby got the win, 2 innings with 2 hits and 3 strikeouts.

Mickey Moniak hit a pinch hit homer in the 7th. Austin Hedges was 1-for-3 with a double. Beer was 1-for-4 with 2 RBI's and 2 walks. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with a run scored, steal, and walk.

June 22nd, 2025: Tigers RHP Trevor Rosenthal is out for the rest of this year and most of next year with a damaged elbow ligament. He was 2-1 with a 6.87 ERA in his second season with the Tigers.

We looked to take the series lead with Jake Florence (4-6, 5.26 ERA, 1.59 WHIP) facing Sonny Warner (2-1, 4.78 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) in a matchup of underperforming young stars. Moniak hits Warner well, batting .371 with 3 homers. It was another long pitcher's duel, as we edged the Nats 2-1 in 11 innings.

Jorge Moya ledt with a mild hamstring strain, and will head to the DL for about a week. He allowed a hit to the only batter he faced.

Florence went just 4 innings, allowing a hit, run, 6 walks, and he struck out 3. The rest of the pen combined for 7 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Perez improved to 4-0 with the win, and Alpha Quivers got his first save.

As a team, we had just 3 hits. Moniak was 1-for-5 with an RBI and steal. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Vlad Jr. came off the bench and was 1-for-1 with a double, walk, and run scored.

June 23rd, 2025: With Moya on the DL, I called up Gunnar Hoglund from AAA. He was 1-0 in 14 games (5 starts) with a 3.20 ERA, 0.99 WHIP, and 41 strikeout sin 39.1 innings.

Now 43-29, we've jumped up to 3rd in the Power Rankings.

We looked to win the road series with our third straight win and Mike Soroka (4-6, 2.98 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) facing Jhon Vergara (2-4, 4.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP). The team is really tired, so I'm hoping it's a quick win. The bats came to play, and we topped them 8-2 to win the final three games of the four game set.

Soroka went 5 innings, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and he struck out 5. Marc Bjork, Shoehi Ohtani, and Ramon Perez combined for 4 ininings with 2 hits and 8 strikeouts.

Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-3 with 2 walks, 3 runs, an RBI, and 3 steals. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a solo shot, a double, and two total runs. Soroka was 1-for-3 with an RBI double. Austin Hendrick was 2-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, 2 walks, and 2-for-3 in steals.

We're off to Atlanta to face the first place Braves. With a sweep, we tie them for first. We'll see Cole Winn (7-4, 2.92 ERA), Chris Helmick (7-3, 3.67 ERA), and Lucas Sims (3-4, 4.50 ERA).

But first, I have to turn 65 GCL players into 40, my favorite day of the year...

I made a few minor trades, acquiring SP Alfredo Herrera from the Phillies and SP Juan Miranda from the Cardinals. Niether guy is that good, but neither is bad either.

June 24th, 2025: We opened the series in Atlanta against the first place Braves with Steve Paustian (2-3, 3.91 ERA, 1.47 WHIP) facing Cole Winn (7-4, 2.92 ERA, 0.89 WHIP). Both guys have one start aginast the opponent this year, with Winn finding success and Paustian getting hit hard. It was depressing, and we were crushed 12-3, although we did have 14 hits...

Paustian went 5 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 4 walks, and he got 3 strikeouts. Walston got the loss, allowing a run and 3 hits without getting an out. Gunnar Hoglund allowed 4 runs and 5 hits in 1.1 innings with just 1 strikeout. Jarneski allowed 2 runs in 0.2 innings with 3 hits and a strikeout. Raby allowed 2 runs off a hit and a walk while getting just 1 out. Chasen Shreve struck out both batter he faced to finish the 8th.

Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Vlad Jr. was 3-for-5 with a run scored. Austin Hendrick doubled in 5 at bats. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with an RBI. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with an RBI and walk.

Eloy Jimenez's hit streak was ended at 23 games as the Astros beat his Mariners 8-7.

June 25th, 2025: Farigue is setting in, but we have just 2 more games counting today before a much needed off day. Dinelson Lamet (4-2, 2.87 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) looks to melt his cold stretch against Chris Helmick (7-3, 3.67 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). The Braves got 4 in the 5th and took game two 7-4 to extend their win streak to 7.

Lazaro Armenteros left with a thumb contnusion, but will probably miss just tomorrow's game.

Lamet allowed 7 runs in 4.1 innings with 5 hits, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts. The rest of the pen combined for 3.2 innings with 3 hits, a walk, and 6 strikeouts.

Austin Hedges was 2-for-4 with a three run homer. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with an RBI. Scott Kingery was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Lamet was 1-for-2.

June 27th, 2025: Fan vote update: Dillard remains 1st for catchers. Moniak is up to 2nd for center field. Ohtani is still first for RF. Quivers remains 4th for relievers.

Oakland will be without LHP Devin Smeltzer for the year with a ruptured ulnar collateral ligament. He tossed 37 innings and has an ugly 7.36 ERA with 31 strikeouts.

We looked to avoid the sweep with Walker Buehler (4-0, 1.86 ERA, 0.87 WHIP) facing Lucas Sims (3-4, 4.50 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). Sims is 0-2 with a 7.11 ERA against us this year, and Mickey Moniak, Seth Beer, and Thomas Dillard all have 2 homers and are hitting over .385 in their career's against him. We couldn't score, and the Braves finished the sweep with a 2-0 shutout victory.

Shoehi Ohtani left with a quadriceps strain, but it's a minor injury and he should avoid DL time.

Buehler went 4 innings, allowoing 5 hits, a run, 2 walks, and he struck out 3. Marc Bjork tossed 3 perfect innings of relief with 3 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve allowed a solo homer and got a strikeout in the 8th.

Beer was 2-for-4. Pinch hitters Jon Reid and Gunnar Hoglund (yes, the pitcher, he's kind of a two way player, although he won't play much first or third in the majors) both got singles in their only at bats. Ohtani was 1-for-2 before leaving.

We really need tomorrow's off day to recover, and we're now 6 games out of first. We have a 2.5 game lead over New York, who is the 2nd Wild Card team, but Atlanta looks unbeatable right now. On paper, they aren't better then us, but they are definitely at our level. They are just a lot more healthy, with 2 injured players instead of 6 (plus 2 active DTD guys).

June 27th-July 3rd

June 27th, 2025: Today was a beautiful day off, before a two game series with the White Sox and another off day. We'll see Blake Bivens (4-6, 4.60 ERA) and Jhon Peluffo (5-5, 4.90 ERA).

Jume 28th, 2025: The Giants will be without rookie reliever Pat Riley for the rest of the season with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. The former 8th Round pick is a 3.5/5* so San Gran hopes he can make a speedy recovery.

Tampa Bay sent LF Nick Decker to the Twins for RHP Dallas Woolfolk. I like this deal for the Twins, but it's a pretty even trade.

Former White Sox's #1 overall pick Jake Florence (4-6, 5.09 ERA, 1.60 WHIP) took on Blake Bivens (4-6, 4.60 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) to open the quick two game series. Bivens beat us and Florence to the Sox. Florence was much better, and we beat the hosts 9-1.

Florence almost went the distance, 8.2 innings with 3 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. The run came with two outs in the 9th. Alpha Quivers got the final out with a strikeout, but he allowed 2 hits.

Seth Beer was 3-for-4 and a triple away from the cycle, with 3 runs and 3 RBI's. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a walk, steal, run scored, and RBI. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-4 with a walk, double, and 2 runs scored. Thomas Dillard was 3-for-4 with a sac fly, double, and 2 RBI's. Mickey Moniak was 1-for-4 with a pair of walks. Gunnar Hoglund played DH and went 1-for-4 with an RBI and walk.

Florence didn't have the best outing of the night, that belongs to Phillies 22-year-old rookie Jim Gilbert, who tossed a perfect game in a 1-0 win over the Rockies. The former 23rd Rounder from 2021 is currently a 2.5/4, who's had a crazy journey. After Texas selected him, they released him. He caught oun with Philly, and spent 1 day with them before being released and joining the Rays. He lasted 4 gdays with them, before not playing the rest of 2021. He then signed with Baltimore in April of 2022 before being released on the final da. On June 18th he signed with Texas, and then released on the 18th. He signed with St. Louis on the 27th, and stuck around until April 6th, 2024 when the Phillies claimed him off waivers. And now he has a perfect game, the 24th in MLB history, 1st since I started this game in 2018.

June 29th, 2025: We looked to finish the quick sweep with Mike Soroka (5-6, 3.01 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) taking on Jhon Peluffo (5-5, 4.90 ERA, 1.50 WHIP). We got 3 in the 1st, 4 inthe 2nd, 10 in the 7th, and 2 in the 8th to take the finale 19-4.

Soroka went 7 with 6 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Joseph Jarneski pitched the last 2 innings and struck out three.

Seth Beer was 1-for-5 with a walk, 2 runs scored, a three run homer, and 4 RBI's. Vladimmir Guerrero Jr. was 3-for-5 with a walk, 4 runs scored, 2 RBI's, and a homer. Deshawn Hardamon was 3-for-6 with a run and 2 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-2 with 4 walks, a homer, 3 runs, and 3 RBI's. Lazaro Armenteros was 2-for-6 with a run, 5 RBI's, and a homer. All 9 hitters that played got a hit and scored a run while only Isaac Nunez didn't record an RBI.

My former outfielder Brandon Marsh acutally had to pitch, tossing 1.2 innings with 2 hits, 2 runs, and 2 walks.

Tomorrow was another off day that we'd use to head home.

June 30th, 2025: We dropped down 1 spot to 4th in the Power Rankings, behind Atlanta, Seattle, and the Cubs.

We'll host Philadelphia to start July, and we'll see Josh Wold (4-1, 3.83 ERA), Mashiaro Tanaka (2-5, 5.76 ERA), and Mr. Perfection himself Jim Gilbert (4-5, 3.18 ERA). Let's hope he's a little less perfect for this start...

July 1st, 2025: We started July with Steve Paustian (2-3, 4.00 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) facing Josh Wolf (4-1, 3.83 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) and the Phillies in front of another sold out Marlins Park, which I think we're in the third straight year of sell outs. We got 5 in the eigth to extend out lead t o a 9-2 win.

Paustian went 7.2 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve finished the 8th on two pitches and got a hold before we broke free.

Thomas Dillard was perfect again, 3-for-3 with a double, walk, and run scored. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a homer, and walk. Jr. was 1-for-3 with a walk, 2 runs scored, and a solo shot. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with 3 RBI's and a double. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a walk and 2 runs scored.

Now with Seattle, Rafael Devers hit his 300th career homer. The 28-year-old has 30 this year in his first season with Seattle, and in 1,239 career games he's hit .312/.356/.642 with 893 RBI's. The 7-Time All Star and four time Silver Slugger has been worth a total of 46 wins above replacement, with 6 or higher from 2020-2024 (on pace for 7.8).

July 2nd, 2025: The International Pool was published and it isn't the strongest by any means.

Houston lost recently acquired SP Braxton Garrett for the year with bone chips in his elbow. In just 3 starts with the 'Stros, he's 0-2 with a 5.23 ERA.

Minnesota sent LF Luis Valquez to the Brewers for RHP Hugo Casillia and SS Kleyber Rodriguez. Valquez has become expendable after acquiring Decker. I really like this deal for the Twins.

The Cubs sent C Steven Williams and LHP Wilson Gomez to the Rockies for RHP German Marquez. It's a solid deal for both teams, but I do really like the Rockies return.

We looked to keep rolling with Walker Buehler (4-1, 1.88 ERA, 0.91 WHIP) facing Mashiaro Tanka (2-5, 5.76 ERA, 1.28 WHIP). Man am I glad no one gave me what I wanted for Buehler! He turned in another good start, and we won 3-2 to take the series a game early.

Buehler went 6, allowing 6 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 8 strikeouts. Greg Walston, Ramon Perez, and Chasen Shreve got holds, while Alpha Quivers earned the save. Those four combined for 3 innings with 2 hits, 2 walks, and 7 srikeouts. Quivers struck out the side in the 9th.

Deshawn Hardamon was a perfect 3-for-3 with a solo shot and two runs scored. Vladdy was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-3 with an RBI double. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a steal.

Joe Gray Jr. was 5-for-5 as the Tigers beat the White Sox 8-6. The defensive genius is hitting just .228 and has a career .226 average in 309 games. He's won a Gold Glove the past two seasons, and is likely to notch his third in third career season this year. He was so good in 2023, his ZR was +25.6 with 15 assists, 2 double plays, and a 1.000 fielding percentage, so even old schoolers could respect how elite he was as a rookie.

Another slugger hit 300, as Miguel Sano got his 300th in a 10-8 Cardinals win over the Astros. "Bocaton" is a career .245/.339/.485 hitter in 1,271 games with 786 RBI's.

July 3rd, 2025: Jorge Moya has been activated from the DL, and I optioned Gunnar Hoglund to AAA. He's hit a lot better then he's pitched, and is also probably overmatched currently.

July 3rd, 2025: I extended all my personnel that would re-sign. I like keeping stable personnel and developing in house options. For example, I have a "Legendary" Manager in AAA waiting to be promoted.

All Star Update: Dillard remains 1st for backstops. Moniak is still 2nd for center. Ohtani still paces all right fielders. Lastly, Quivers remains 4th for relief pitchers.

We looked to finish the sweep with the red hot Jake Florence (5-6, 4.65 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) facing the recently perfect Jim Gilbert (4-5, 3.18 ERA, 1.05 WHIP). We hit him hard, and finished the sweep with a 10-5 win, after breaking away for 5 in the 7th after we allowed them to tie it with 3 in the 7th.

Lazaro Armenteros is heading to the DL with back tightness for hopefully just the minimum. He doubled to lead off the game, but was injured when sliding into second.

Florence went 5.1 innings, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and he struck out 7. Walston got a hold, 1.1 innings with a hit, run, and 2 strikeouts. Patrick Raby blew the save, 2 runs off 2 hits and 2 walks without getting an out. Quivers got the last out and earned the win before Dinelson Lamet came out of the pen and tossed 2 innings with a hit and 3 strikeouts. I'll have to investigate why he moved to the pen later.

Jr. was 2-for-4 with a three run homer. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-2 with 2 walks and a three run homer. Mickey Moniak was 3-for-4 with a double, steal, run scored, and three RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with a run scored.

I recalled Cole Roederer from AAA to replace Armenteros. He's hitting .295/.366/.401 in AAA with 2 homers, 35 RBI's, and 14 steals. He'll be the new starting left fielder.

On the Lamet situation, Ohtani has replaced him in the rotation, and for now, I'm okay with that.

We've got a 5 game lead over the 2nd Wild Card team Arizona, and are just 3 back of Atlanta. Colorado comes to town for four, and we'll see A.J. Puk (2-3, 3.71 ERA), Juan Coira (6-5, 3.36 ERA), Enyel De Los Santos (3-7, 6.78 ERA), and Juan Toribio (4-5, 4.01 ERA).

July 4th-July 10th

July 4th, 2025: The Cubs will be without SP Pablo Ochoa for the year with a sore shoulder. He was 7-5 with a 3.28 ERA in 17 starts with 86 strikeouts in 101.2 innings.

We hosted the Rockies today, and Shoehi Ohtani (2-0, 3.27 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) took on Juan Coira (6-5, 3.36 ERA, 1.32 WHIP). It was a close one, but with 2 in the 8th, we edged them 3-2.

Ohtani went 5, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs, 4 walks, and he struck out 6. Mac Bjork got the win, allowing a hit and getting a pair of strikeouts in the 8th. Jorge Moya allowed a hit in the 9th, but earned the save.

Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a double and RBI. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-3 with an RBI via the sacrafice fly.

July 5th, 2025: I signed three international amaterus today, starting with CF Ernesto Mora. The 16-year-old Dominican will recieve a $1.5 million bonus. He's rated a 3.5 potential with plus plus power, great plate discipline, and solid speed. He's likely to end up in left, although he's a solid defender.

Next is 16-year-old Venezuelan Jorge Serna. "Pepi" is rated a 2.5 potential at second base and signed a $1.7 million bonus. He's got elite power, but has awful discipline. He's got good foot speed, but won't steal many bases. He's never going to hit for a high average, but he can hit 40 homers in a full season.

Lastly, I got 16-year-old Dominican C Luis Pastrana, who signed a $550,000 bonus. He's a solid hitter who needs work behind the plate, but may eventually move to first base. He's rated a 2.5 potential and will hit his fair share of homers.

I don't usually mention minor league personel signings, but I signed Jonny Venters to be the GCL pitching coach. He's the pitcher that worked back from multiple major arm injuries to pitch for the Rays in real life. He's definitely got the shot to be a great pitching coach.

We looked to take game two of four with Mike Soroka (6-6, 3.07 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) facing A.J. Puk (2-3, 3.71 ERA, 1.28 WHIP). The score was the same as yesterday, and we won 3-2.

Mickey Moniak left with an injury, and I'm fearing the worst as I await the diagnosis.

Soroka was great, 7 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve got the win, getting the final out of the 8th with a strikeout after walking the first abtter he faced. Moya recorded the save again, his 18th of the year.

Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a double, homer, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Moniak was 1-for-4 with an RBI double. Austin Hedges was 2-for-4 with a double. Scott Kingery was 2-for-3. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-3 with a walk and run scored.

Padres CF Jeison Rosario hit for the cycle in an 11-1 win over the Blue Jays.

Below are where all my unsigned draftees will attend college, and I will make my chagnes to a few of the unsigned players around the league:

9th Round: CF Eric Hodgkins (Kent State 2026)
11th Round: SS Chris Knitter (Highland (IL) CC 2028)
13th Round: 3B Jamie Stogner (Boston College)
17th Round: CF Danny Tripp (Towson 2028)
20th Round: SS Arturo Castro (Cal State-Fullerton 2028)
23rd Round: C T.J. Salinas (Dubuque 2028)
24th Round: CF Mike Allen (Washington 2028)
25th Round: SP Nate Resnick (San Diego State 2028)
27th Round: SS Naquan Stiggers (Memphis 2028)
31st Round: SP Joe Cox (Texas-Arlington 2028)
34th Round: 1B Ameirin Amilakhvarov (Georgetown 2028)
35th Round: SP Chris Brummel (North Carolina 2028)
36th Round: CF Danny Squires (Boston College 2026)
38th Round: 2B Luis Robles (Indiana 2028)

July 6th, 2025: We looked to take the series a day early with Steve Paustian (3-3, 3.86 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) taking on Enyel De Los Santos (3-7, 6.78 ERA, 1.65 WHIP). It wasn't a 3-2 win, but we won 8-5 with 4 in the 5th.

Paustian went 4.2 innings with 7 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), 4 walks, and 8 strikeouts. Ramon Perez got the win, now 5-0, going 1.1 innings with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts. Greg Walston got a hold, pitching the 7th with 2 strikeouts and a hit. Alpha Quivers pitched the 8th, allowing a hit, run, walk, and he struck out 2. Moya got a save in his third straight game, tossing a perfect 9th with 2 strikeouts.

Ohtani was aperfect 4-for-4 and a homer away from the cycle (two doubles). He drove in two and scored twice. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a RBI sac-fly and two run homer. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with a three run homer. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-4 with a walk, double, and two runs.

Oalkand LF Anthony Churlin was 5-for-5 in an 11-4 win over the Orioles.

But bigger news, another perfect game! The 25th Perfect Game in big league history was tossed by 36-year-old veteran Jimmy Nelson who's spent his entire career with the Brewers. In his 316th career start, he was perfect in a 4-0 win over the Braves. He's 4-6 with a 4.75 ERA in 17 starts this season.

July 7th, 2025: Mickey Moniak broke his kneecap and will miss 4 months. It's a tough injury to swallow... I called up the just actiavted Juan Ramirez from AAA.

On the bright side, at 52-32 we moved all the way up to first in the Power Rankings and are 1.5 games out of first.

We looked to finish the long sweep with Walker Buehler (5-1, 1.96 ERA, 0.93 WHIP) facing Juan Toribio (4-5, 4.01 ERA, 1.36 WHIP). Ramirez will hit 5th and man center for the time being. We couldn't score, and were shut out 1-0.

Buehler went 7.2 innings with 5 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. He also hit 1-for-2. Ramirez was 1-for-3 with a walk in his return to the bigs. The last hit was from Seth Beer who was 1-for-4. Austin Hendrick was 0-for-1 with 2 walks and a hit by pitch.

We're off to Cincy to face the Reds for three. We'll see Sean Geise (4-4, 4.92 ERA), Robert Stephenson (4-7, 5.66 ERA), and former Marlins Zach Davies (2-5, 4.50 ERA).

July 8th, 2025: I made an depth signing on the IAFA market, signing 3B Juan Fabela to a $232,300 bonus. The 16-year-old has pop and a cannon at third, but he's just there for depth.

He was injured when the Rox came to town, and Juan Torinio is out for the year with a torn labrum. He was 4-5 with a 3.94 ERA this season.

Cardinals SP Eric Webster is out for the year with a damaged elbow ligament. He was 1-7 with a 6.78 ERA with 64 strikeouts in 74.1 innings.

We opened the series in Cincinatti with Jake Florence (5-6, 4.57 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) taking on Sean Geise (4-4, 4.92 ERA, 1.54 WHIP). We couldn't finish them off, allowing 2 in the 8th and then an A.J. Lee pinch hit homer off Marc Bjork and they walked off 4-3.

Florence was effective, 7 innings with 4 hits, a run, 4 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Quivers allowed 2 runs (1 earned) off 3 hits with a strikeout for the only out. Marc Bjork struck out the only two hitters he faced in the 8th, but allowed the homer to start the 9th.

Thomas Dillard was 1-for-2 with a solo homer, 2 walks, and 2 runs scored. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored.

July 9th, 2025: We needed to stop the skid with Shoehi Ohtani (2-0, 3.32 ERA, 1.37 WHIP) facing Robert Stephenson (4-7, 5.66 ERA, 1.27 WHIP). We scored a lot early, winning 8-1.

Ohtani was excellent, 7 innings with 3 hits, a run, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Dinelson Lamet tossed 2 innings with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts.

Juan Ramirez was an impressive 3-for-5 with a two run homer, double, and 3 total RBI's. Austin Hendrick was 2-for-5 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a double, and a hoemr. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles. Ohtani as a hitter was 1-for-2 with a walk and run scored. Cole Roederer was 1-for-5 with a double and 2 runs scored.

Pirates SP Shane Baz struck out 13 and tossed a 1-hit shutout against the Mets.

July 10th, 2025: I inked Dominican C Juan Romero to a $1,620,000 bonus. He needs to make more contact, but he'll hit a lot of homers and his bat will carry him.

All-Star update: Dillard remains 1st for catchers, the injured Moniak 2nd for CF, Ohtani 1st for RF, but Quivers dropped to 5th for RP.

Yankees SP Hunter Greene is out for the year with radinal nerve compression. He was 8-4 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.27 WHIP in 16 starts with 64 strikeouts in 81.1 innings. He was also hitting .299/.356/.493 with 3 homers and 9 RBI's as he plays DH with breif appearences at SS and CF.

The Indians will lose CL Carter Capps for the year with the same injury. The 34-year-old had 12 saves and a 2.55 ERA.

We looked to win the series with Mike Soroka (6-6, 3.04 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) facing Zach Davies (2-5, 4.50 ERA, 1.55 WHIP). We scored 12 runs in the sixth to win the finale 17-1.

Soroka almost went the distance, 8.1 innings with 7 hits, a run, and 10 strikeouts. Perez got the last two outs with a strikeout and ground out.

Here's somthing crazy: Juan Ramirez hit two home runs in the 6th inning and drove in 4 runs. He finished 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 walks, and 6 RBI's. Seh Beer also hit two homers in the 6th, finishing 2-for-5 with a walk and 5 RBI's. I don't think that has ever happened before!

Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a homer, 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a hit by pitch, and 2 walks. Cole Roederer was 3-for-6 with 3 runs, 2 RBI's, and a double. Jr. was 2-for-4 with a walk, 3 runs, RBI, steal, sac-fly, and a double.

Erik McKeon went 5-for-5 in a White Sox 11-10 win over the Orioles.

San Francisco is next, and we'll see Wes Hicks (5-3, 4.08 ERA), Stephen Gonslaves (3-3, 3.53 ERA), and Tre'Mayne Blackburn (3-5, 4.22 ERA).

July 11th-July 17th

July 11th, 2025: The Indians traded SS Willi Castro to the Rays for RHP Yonny Chirinos. It's a pretty even trade.

We opened the series at AT&T Park with Steve Paustian (3-3, 3.95 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) facing his former team and teammate Wes Hicks (5-3, 4.08 ERA, 1.35 WHIP). Fun fact on Hicks: he appeared in 100 games last year for the Giants. 100! Isn't that crazy? Zhao-jun Ou-yang hit a walk off single and the Giants won 5-4.

Paustian pitched well, 6 innings with 7 hits, 2 runs, 4 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Greg Walston allowed 2 runs off 2 hits without getting an out. Moya got the loss, 0.2 innings with 2 walks, the run, hit, and a strike out.

Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-3 with a walk, 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a homer. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-4 with an RBI. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Paustian was 1-for-3 with an RBI.

July 12th, 2025: We looked to bounce back with Walker Buehler (5-2, 1.89 ERA, 0.93 WHIP) facing Stephen Gonsalves (3-3, 3.53 ERA, 1.26 WHIP). Buehler was brilliant, and we evened the series with a 3-1 win.

Buehler tossed 6 shutout innings, with 2 hits, 3 walks, and 8 strikeouts. Walston and Alpha Quivers tossed perfect frames to get holds, while Moya got the save. He allowed a run off 2 hits with a strikeout in the 9th.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with a solo homer, steal, and 2 runs. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-5 with an RBI double and stolen base. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with an RBI. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a double. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-2 with 2 walks.

July 13th, 2025: The White Sox acquired SS Carlos Correa and RHP Brad Hall from the Padres for RHP's Dakota Donovan and Joe Symons. The Sox are taking on a ton of salary, but they get the better players, although Symons is a great relief pitching prospect.

With the possible Padres rebuild, I may be interested in acquiring CF Jeison Rosario from them.

We looked to win the series in a battle of #1 overall picks, Jake Florence (5-6, 4.32 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) and Tre'Mayne Blackburn (3-5, 4.22 ERA, 1.32 WHIP). The game was tied 2-2 heading into the 7th, but we got 3 in the top and 2 more in the 8th to finish the series with a 7-2 win.

Florence went 5.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve tossed 1.2 innings with 2 hits and 4 strikeouts to improve to a perfect 7-0 on the season.

Vlad Jr. was 2-for-4 with a walk, homer, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a pair of doubles, walks, and RBI's. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a walk, steal, and 2 runs scored. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a walk and double. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a run scored, RBI, and walk. Scott Kingery was 1-for-4 with a run scored, walk, and double.

Cardinals LF and former Marlin Lewis Brinson was 5-for-5 in a 7-4 loss to the Angels. Astros 1B Yordan Alvarez increased his hit streak to 20 games. Former Marlins and current Dodger 2B Reizo Honda was 5-for-5 in an 8-5 win over the Rockies.

We got tomorrow off.

July 14th, 2025: Made another minor international signing, agreeing to a $470,000 bonus for SP Arturo Espinosa. The lefty may end up a reliever, but if he develops his change up he could start in the minors. He's not the most promising prospect, but he has a great makeup.

We remain on top of the Power Rankings with Atlanta right behind us. At 56-35, we're half a game and a half behind them.

Lazaro Armenteros is headed to Jupiter for a minor league rehab assignment. He'll join the team after the All-Star break.

We're off to Milwaukee for the final series of the first half. We'll see Bobby Nicholson (9-6, 3.97 ERA), Brent Honeywell (2-1, 3.22 ERA), and Jimmy Nelson (4-7, 4.86 ERA).

July 15th, 2025: The Rockies acquired RHP Jake Webb and RF Dave Ortega from the Pirates for LF Jahiem Tyes. I like this deal for the Rockies, but it's pretty even.

We opened the series in Milwaukee with Mike Soroka (7-6, 2.89 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) taking on Brent Honeywell (2-1, 3.22 ERA, 1.01 WHIP). It was a close one, but we edged the hosts 5-4.

Soroka went 6.1 innings, allowing 5 hits, 4 runs, and he struck out 8. Greg Walston went 1.2 innings with a strikeout to get the hold. Jorge Moya struck out the side in the 9th to earn the save.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-5 with a two run homer. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a run scored, RBI, and steal. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a steal. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-3 with a run scored and RBI. Cole Roederer was 2-for-5 with a double and RBI.

Cole Winn tossed a 5-hit shutout as the Braves beat the White Sox 3-0.

July 16th, 2025: We looked to keep rolling with Shoehi Ohtani (3-0, 3.00 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) taking on Bobby Nicholson (9-6, 3.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP). We got two in the 9th off Victor Arano to win 3-1.

Isaac Nunez left with a seperated shoulder and will miss 2-3 weeks.

Ohtani was amazing, but got a no decision. He gave up a hit in 7 innings with 2 walks and 8 strikeouts. He was also 1-for-4 with a double. Quivers blew the save, but got the win, getting a strikeout and allowing a solo homer in the 7th. Moya got the save, striking out 2 in the 9th.

Deshawn Hardmon was 2-for-5 with a solo homer and double. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-3 with 2 walks, an RBI, 2 doubles, and he was 1-for-2 on stolen base attempts. Cole Roederer was 2-for-3 with a run scored, double, and 2 walks.

Down in the DSL, RF Esteban Miramon was 5-for-5 in a win over the Tecas DSL team.

Alvarez's hit streak was ended at 22 in a 6-3 loss to the Angels.

July 17th, 2025: The All-Star rosters were announced, and both Thomas Dillard (3rd) and Shoehi Ohtani (3rd) won the fan vote for their position and will start. Walker Buehler (2nd), Mike Soroka (1st), and Rookie Marc Bjork (1st) were also named to the All-Star game.

In trade news, the A's acquired RHP Gerrit Cole and CF Luis Gurrero from the Giants for LF Anthony Churlin. It's an even enough trade.

I purchased the contract of 3B Caleb Balgaard from AAA to repalce Nunez on the active roster. The only other infielder on the 40, Devonte Brown, is also injured.

Balgaard, 27, is set to make his major league debut after hitting .279/.357/.462 with 11 homers and 48 RBI's in New Orleans this season. The former 2nd Round pick in 2020 was acquired for Matt Purke from the Mets in 2021.

We looked to finish the second half with a sweep, with Steve Paustian (3-3, 3.90 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) taking on Jimmy Nelson (4-7, 4.86 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) who tossed the second of two perfect games this year. We got 7 in the 9th to finish the sweep with an 11-8 win.

Paustian went 5 innings, allowing 6 hits, 4 runs, and 6 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve allowed a hit, walk, strikeout, and 2 runs in 1.1 innings. Bjork got the win, despite allowing 2 runs in the 8th with a hit, walk, and strikeout. Moya allowed a hit, walk, and got two strikeouts in the 9th before Alpha Quivers got a strikeout to end the game and record a save.

Balgaard substituted at SS to make his debut, going 1-for-3 with an RBI. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a two run homer and solo home run, as well as a walk. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a homer and 4 RBI's. Cole Roederer was 3-for-6 with 2 runs scored and a steal. Jr. was 1-for-4 with a double and hit by pitch. Austin Hedges had a pinch hit double in the 9th that drove in a run. He also later scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a double, 2 runs, an RBI, and walk.

Red Sox RF Bryce Harpter recored his 2,000th career hit. The 32-year-old is a career .289/.404/.543 hitter with Washington, Philadelphia, and Boston.

We end the first half 59-35, the second best record in all of baseball, but a game behind the 61-35 Braves. They are our first opponent after the break.

July 18th-July 24th

July 18th, 2025: I optioned LF Cole Roederer to AAA, since Lazaro Armenteros would be recalled after the break.

July 19th, 2025: Today is the All-Star Game! The Cubs Jorge Flores (9-0, 3.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) battled the Mariners Segio Barreto (5-4, 3.21 ERA, 1.27 WHIP). The NL lineup was insanely stacked, although for some reason Keibert Ruiz started over Thomas Dillard. Shoehi Ohtani hit 8th and played RF. It was a close one, but Reds 1B Jamie Serger hit a walk off solo homer off the Tigers Edwin Diaz.

Bjork pitched the 2nd and allowed just 1 hit. Buehler pitched a perfect 5th inning with a strikeout. Ohtani was 0-for-3. Dillard was 0-for-1 with a walk. Mike Soroka did not play.

July 20th, 2025: I made a big trade to bolster the pen, acquiring CL Hyo-jin Yaung from the Cardinals for RP Patrick Raby and 1B Juan Valera.

The 27-year-old Yaung just came over from the KBO, and makes $13,000,000 per year before he'll hit arbitration. He's rated a 5/5 with 100 stuff that features a 100 slider. His pitches move well and he's got great control. He's got 8 saves and a 2.63 ERA in 27.1 innings with 46 strikeouts and a 1.28 WHIP. Him and Quivers will make a crazy good 1-2 punch before Moya, soldifying my bullpen that easilly ranks #1 in the majors (not counting the scrubs I've had to callup with injuries).

July 21st, 2025: We remain #1 in the Power Rankings as the second half starts tomorrow with a three game series at home against the first place Braves. We'll see Cole Winn (9-4, 2.79 ERA), Chris Helmick (9-4, 4.22 ERA), and Ty Madden (5-5, 4.54 ERA) to start the second half.

July 22nd, 2025: We open part two with Jake Florence (5-6, 4.27 ERA, 1.45 WHIP) facing Cole Winn (9-4, 2.79 ERA, 0.93 WHIP). Lazaro Armenteros rejoined the roster, hitting 7th and playing CF. With a 5-2 win to start the series, we tied the Braves for first place.

Deshawn Hardamon left the game with a foot contusion, and he'll miss 2 weeks. He went 1-for-2 with a solo shot. And I'll need to find another infielder...

Florence went 6 innings, allownig 5 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Quivers and Yuang got holds and Moya got the save. Yaung's Marlins debut wasn't perfect, he walked 2, but he got a strikeout and didn't allow a hit.

Vlad Jr. was 2-for-4 with a solo shot and double. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-3 with a solo shot, 2 total runs, and a walk. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a rather impressive stolen base.

July 23rd, 2025: I made a minor trade to acquire an infielder, sending LHP Jaheim Meggett to the Blue Jays for one of my former players, 2B Isan Diaz.

Now 29, he's hit .240/.323/.444 in 574 at bats with the White Sox and Blue Jays. He can play a little bit of everything, although second base is his main position. He'll be used off the bench, and likely designated for assignment later, although with the injuries I've had, he could last a while.

Game two saw Mike Soroka (8-6, 3.04 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) battle Lucas Sims (5-4, 4.58 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) with the winner taking first place for themselves. Caleb Balgaard made his first career start at SS today. There was a lot of early scoring, and we took the division lead with a 7-4 win.

Soroka left with back stiffness, and will miss a week. Yay... Well, it could be worse...

Lamet, who will likely replace him in the rotation, went 1.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. Ramon Perez improved to 6-0 with 3 innings of work, allowing 3 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Walston, Quivers, and Yaung got holds, with Moya recording the save.

Balgaard hit his first career homer, a two run shot in a 1-for-3 outing. Scott Kingery was 1-for-3 with a solo shot. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-4 with a two run shot. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a triple and two runs scored. Shoehi Ohtnai was 2-for-4 with a run scored and RBI.

Song-shil Su tossed a 3-hit shutout as the Rangers beat the Yankees 4-0.

I recalled Ernesto Estrella from AAA to replace Soroka. I now have 9 big leaguers on the DL...

July 24th, 2025: We can gain seperation with a sweep as Steve Paustian (3-3, 4.05 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) took on Chris Helmick (9-4, 4.22 ERA, 1.38 WHIP). We crushed the Braves 11-3 to finish off a perfect series to start the second half.

Of course, Marc Bjork decided to get injured, and will head to the DL for hopefully the minimum with a tender shoudler.

Paustian went 6.1 innings, allowing 7 hits with 3 runs, 4 walks, 2 strikeouts. Bjork did get a hold, 1.2 perfect innings with a strikeout. Estrella made a return with an inning and 2 strikeouts.

Juan Ramirez was 4-for-5 and a double away from the cycle. He scored three times. Vlad Jr. hit two homers in a 2-for-5 with 2 runs and 4 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a solo homer and walk. Caleb Balgaard was 2-for-5 with a 2 run double. Jon Reid was 1-for-3 with a run scored, walk, and double. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a double, run scored, RBI, and walk. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-3 with 2 walks and a run scored.

Hueston Morrill hit 3 homers in a 6-5 Rangers win over the Yankees. The 24-year-old is having a great season, hitting .290 with 27 homers and 67 RBI's.

I recalled A.J. Labas from AAA. He's 8-5 with a 3.96 ERA and 1.39 WHIP this season, his first year in my system since being claimed off waivers from Oakland.

Washington comes to town for four, and we'll see Gage Hinsz (11-2, 3.04 ERA), Jhon Vergara (2-6, 5.14 ERA), Sonny Warner (4-2, 3.18 ERA), and an un-named 4th starter. We've won 8 in a row and 9 of the last 10, and we look like the team that won the World Series last year.

July 25th-July 31st

July 25th, 2025: Giants lefty Stephen Gonsalves is out for the year with a sore shoulder. It's a weird season ender, but he'll finish his season 3-4 with a 3.75 ERA and 2 saves in 41 games (10 starts).

Twins rookie Murdoc Bloom will also miss the remainder of the year with a damaged elbow ligament. The former 26th Overall pick was 4-2 with a 4.47 ERA in 50.1 innings.

The Mariners traded 2B Lupe Magana to the Athletics for RHP Nick Gardewine. Gardewine has been asking for a trade, and the A's got a decent spec for him.

The first of four wtih the Nationals took place between Walker Buehler (5-2, 1.78 ERA, 0.92 WHIP) and Gage Hinsz (11-2, 3.04 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). Our hot streak was stopped in a 5-2 loss.

Lazaro Armenteros left with a mild shoulder strain and will head to the DL for about 2 weeks. Yay, another injury...

Buehler went just 3 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and he struck out 5. He only tossed 54 pitches. Ernesto Estrella allowed a run in 2 innings with 2 walks and a strikeout. Joseph Jarneski went 3, allowing a hit, run, and he struck out two.

Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a double and hit by pitch. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a run and error.

July 26th, 2025: I recalled Cole Roederer from AAA to replace Armenteros.

The Mets traded LHP Chris Sale to the Rays for 3B Lucas Erceg. I don't know what the Mets were thinking other then a salary dump.

The Orioles traded LHP Dilmer Mejia and 1B Chris Konowitz to the Diamondbacks for 1B Drew Ellis and RHP Juan Guerra. I like this deal for Arizona.

We looked to bounce back with Shoehi Ohtani (3-0, 2.60 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) taking on Jhon Vergara (2-6, 5.14 ERA, 1.30 WHIP). It may not have been the best idea, but Vlad Jr. played center today. It didn't factor too much, and we won 7-5.

Ohtani had a rough outing, 3.1 innings with 6 hits, 5 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. A.J. Labas made his Marlins debut, 2.2 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and a strikeout. Alpha Quivers got the win, an inning with a hit, walk, and strikeout. Hyo-jin Yaung got the hold and Jorge Moya got the save.

Austin Hendrick was 1-for-4 with a two run homer, walk, and 3 runs scored. Jon Ried was 1-for-4 with a 2-run double. Jr. was 1-for-3 with 2 runs and 2 walks. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI's. Seth Beer was 1-forr-4 with a run scored and walk.

July 27th, 2025: The Royals lost SP Charlie Neuweiler for the year with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. He was 1-1 in 8 starts with a 2.33 ERA and 31 strikeouts in 46.1 innings.

The Angels lost CL Nate Blind for the year with a torn flexor tendon. The fomer 2nd Rounder may have had 22 saves, but he carried a 5.59 ERA with an 0-3 record.

The Angels traded former Marlin CF Cole Brannen to the Blue Jays for former Marlin LHP Tim Cate. It's a pretty even deal.

The Pirates traded LHP Yoelvis Reyes to the Tigers for CF Ernesto Adames. It's a good deal for the Pirates.

Jake Florence (6-6, 4.19 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) took on Sonny Warner (4-2, 3.18 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) in game three of four. The Nats got the best of us today, wining 3-1.

Florence went 5, allowing 2 hits, a run, 3 walks, and getting 5 strikeouts. Jarneskia allowed a run in the 6th with 2 hits and a strikeouts. Alpha Quivers went 2 innings, allowing 2 htis, a run, and 3 strikeouts.

Vlad was 1-for-3 with a solo homer and hit by pitch. Juan Ramirez was 3-for-4 with 2 doubles. The last hit went to Ohtani, who was 1-for-4.

Royals RF Jarred Kelenic went 5-for-5 in a 20-7 win over the Angels.

July 28th, 2025: Juan Ramirez was named player of the week, hitting .480 with 2 solo homers and 7 runs scored. He's hitting .452 with 6 homers and 17 RBI's in 62 at bats.

We remain #1 in the Power Rankings with out 63-37 record, one spot above Atlanta and three above Washington.

Pittsburgh traded LF Austin Meadows and 1B Ron Reeves to the Rockies for C Kevin Evans and RHP Juan Acevedo. I like this deal for the Rockies.

We looked to escape with a split, with Dinelson Lamet (4-3, 3.66 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) taking on Cole Ragans (12-4, 3.63 ERA, 1.29 WHIP). Ragans beat us, Lamet lost to them. Our injury riddled lineup managed 9 runs in the 9-2 finale victory.

Lamet went 7, allowoing just 1 hit, 1 run, 2 walks, and he struck out 4. Ernesto Estrealla allowed a run, 2 htis, and a walk in the 9th.

Vlad Jr. was 2-for-4 with 2 homers, a walk, and 3 RBI's. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-4 with a double and solo hoemr. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a double and two runs scored. Seth Beer was 3-for-5 with a double, 2 runs, and an RBI.

This year seems like a pitching year, as the Braves Cole Winn tossed a no hitter against the Pirates in a 4-0 victory. He walked just 1 and struck out 9. Last year, Winn earned 37 saves as the closer before transitioning into the rotation.

We're off to Philly for three before the trade dealine. We'll see Jim Gilbert (5-6, 3.38 ERA), Steve Fettig (14-3, 2.68 ERA), and former Marlin LF Adam Haseley (3-3, 4.82 ERA).

July 29th, 2025: The Pirates traded SP Shane Baz to the Brewers for LF Josh Crusan and SP Joel Lasher. It's an even deal for both teams.

The last place, 52-50 Phillies hosted us with Jim Gilbert (5-6, 3.38 ERA, 1.15 WHIP) facing Steve Paustian (4-3, 4.06 ERA, 1.50 WHIP). We scored 2 in the 8th and 1 in the 9th to take the opener 5-1.

Paustian was brilliant, 8.1 shutout innings with 4 hits and 5 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella allowed a solo homer, but got the last two outs of the game.

Scott Kingery was 2-for-4 with a triple and run scored. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-4 with a run scored, 2 RBI's, and a double. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a double. Seth Beer was 2-for-3 with a double, walk, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Cole Roederer was 2-for-5 with a run scored.

July 30th, 2025: The Dodgers will be without 25-year-old SP Robinson Ortiz for the year with a torn flexor tendon. The lefty was 3-8 with a 3.55 ERA and he struck out 114 hitters in 104 innings.

Toronto sent RHP Josh Gissendaner and LF Mike DeGrote to the Athletics for RHP Brandon Walker. The A's got a steal. They also sent RHP Steve Hayes to the Reds for LF Stephon Canada. I like his deal for the Reds.

We looked to win the series a day early with Walker Buehler (6-3, 1.99 ERA, 0.95 WHIP) taking on Steve Fettig (14-3, 2.68 ERA, 1.05 WHIP) in an old fashion ace-off. Buehler is the far superior pitcher, but Fettig has been great this year. The Phillies exploded for 12 runs to take the middle game 12-5.

Buehler had a rough outing, 2 innings with 5 runs, 4 his, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. Ramon Perez allowed 5 runs in 1.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. A.J. Lavas allowed 2 runs (1 earneD) in 2.1 innings with 3 hits, 3 walks, and a strikeout.

Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a grand slam. Jon Reid was 2-for-4 with a run scored and double. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-4 with a double and steal. Cole Roederer was 1-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, and walk.

July 31st, 2025: Happy deadline day!

The Dodgers sent RHP Dennis Santana and RHP Stiven Gutierrez to the Reds for CF Brett Phillips. Even with Phillips' down year, it's a win for the Dodgers.

The Royals sent RF Khalil Lee ot the Braves for RHP Chris Helmick and CF Steve Sparks. I really like this deal for the Royals.

Lastly, the Cubs sent RHP Justin Dunn to the Orioles for 2B Jared Poland. It's a pretty even deal.

I made a deal of my own, sending LHP Ramon Perez, 2B Scott Kingery, and RHP Juan Miranda to the Tigers for 2B Jeison Guzman and RHP Isaiah Musa.

Guzman, 26, is a 2.5* 2B who's an elite defender that can play all four infield positions. He's got average speed and a solid bat. He's a career .240/.306/.340 hitter, although he's hitting .287/.339/.410 this seaosn.

Musa, 28, is rated a 2.5/3 with insane stuff and a devestating curveball. The former 3rd Round selection of the Yankees back in 2019 is 7-5 with 3 saves in 90 innings with a 3.40 ERA and 1.40 WHIP.

We looked to win the series and stay in first with a two-way player duel between Shoehi Ohtani (3-0, 3.25 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) facing former Marlin Adam Haseley (3-3, 4.82 ERA, 1.39 WHIP). He's a much better hitter then pitcher, and in a sense, a poor man's Shoehi Ohtani. He tossed a gem today, and the Phillies took the series with a 3-1 win.

Ohtani went 6.1 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Walston, Shreve, and Quivers combined for 1.2 innings with a hit and strikeout (both from Shreve).

Cole Roederer hit a 2-out solo homer in the 3rd for the only run.He was 1-for-3 with a walk. Vlad was 1-for-4 with a double. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a walk. Guzman was 1-for-4 with a caught stealing in his Marlins debut.

We fell out of first, and head to New York for four with the Mets. We'll see Brady Singer (7-4, 3.01 ERA), Michael Wacha (4-7, 3.12), Noah Syndergaard (7-10, 3.26 ERA), and Francisco Morales (3-1, 2.25 ERA, 1.07 WHIP).

August 1st-August 7th

August 1st, 2025: Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was named July's Player of the Month, hitting .310 with 13 homers and 27 RBI's. The 26-year-old is hitting .289 with 28 homers and 70 RBI's on the season.

We opened the series at Citi Field with Jake Florence (6-6, 4.08 ERA, 1.42 WHIP) taking on Brady Singer (7-4, 3.01 ERA, 0.98 WHIP). With the bases loaded, Ahmed Rosario drew a walk and the Mets "walked" off 6-5.

Florence went just 3 innings, allowing 5 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), a walk, and 4 strikeotus. Joseph Jarneski went 2 innings, allowing a run and hit. Jorge Moya got the loss, 0.2 innings with 2 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Isaiah Musa made his Marlins debut, 1.2 innings with a hit and 2 strikeouts.

Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a two run homer, his 30th of th eyear. Cole Roederer was 3-for-5 with a run scored. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a walk and two run homer. Jeison Guzman was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a double, run scored, and RBI.

August 2nd, 2025: The now "fragile" Isaac Nunez will begin a rehab assignment in Jupiter. I'm going to teach him a little third base while he's down.

We looked to bounce back with Dinelson Lamet (5-3, 3.42 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) taking on Michael Wacha (4-7, 3.12 ERA, 1.11 WHIP). Another one run game, and we fell 8-7.

Lamet left with an injury, and luckily Soroka comes back tomorrow so he'll head to the DL tomorrow if needed. He went 3.1 innings with 3 hits, 5 runs, 3 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella went 1.1 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. Musa allowed a run in the 7th off a hit, walk, and strikeout.

Seth Beer hit another homer, going 1-for-3 with 2 walks and 2 RBI's. Vlad Jr. was 3-for-5 with a run scored and steal. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a walk, double, and 3 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a run scored and double. Austin Hendrick had a pinch hit, 2-run double in the 8th.

August 3rd, 2025: I placed Lamet on the DL and activated Mike Soroka. I don't know Lamet's diagnosis, but it's the easiest way to deal with the situation.

Soroka (8-6, 3.03 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) got the start against Noah Syndergaard (7-10, 3.26 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) as we looked to at least attempt to salvage the split with a win in game three. Gregorio Alvaregna will be a problem for Soroka, and he's 20-for-46 against him in his career. We've beat Syndergaard three times coming into this game, but couldn't do it a fourth time and we lost 8-2...

Soroka had a rough start, 3.1 innings with 7 hits, 5 runs, a walk, and strikeout. Ernesto Estrella allowed 3 runs and 3 hits in an inning with a walk and strikeout.

Vlad Jr. was 3-for-4 with a double. Juan Ramirez was 0-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, and steal. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with an RBI.

August 4th, 2025: Lamet just has a sore elbow, so he'll be back after the DL time expires. I also activated Marc Bjork from the DL and optioned Estrella to AAA.

We've dropped all the way to 9th in the Power Rankings as our record has dropped to 65-42.

We looked to avoid the sweep with Walker Buehler (6-4, 2.40 ERA, 0.98 WHIP) facing Francisco Morales (3-1, 2.25 ERA, 1.07 WHIP). Honestly, I don't think we've been swept all season. Until now... They 1-hit us 2-0...

Buehler went just 4.2 innings, allowing 5 hits, a run, walk, and he struck out 6. Bjrok allowed a run in 2 innings with a hit, walk, and strikeout.

Shoehi Ohtani had the only hit, and was 1-for-4. Cole Roederer was 0-for-3 with a walk and steal.

Well, that sucked...

We're heading home to Miami and we'll see the Twins for three. We'll face Casey Mize (6-0, 2.10 ERA), Liam Norris (2-0, 1.86 ERA), and Chad Bradenburg (3-8, 6.38 ERA).

August 5th, 2025: I sent Deshawn Hardamon to Jupiter for a rehab assignment, activated Nunez from his, and optioned Caleb Balgaard to AAA.

The Astros will be without SP Forrest Whitley for the year wtih shoulder inflammation. He was just 2-8 with a 5.26 ERA.

We looked to stop losing, and got to enjoy the comfort of our home fans. Steve Paustian (5-3, 3.78 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) would face Casey Mize (6-0, 2.10 ERA, 0.95 WHIP) in the sold out opener. We continued to suck, and were dominated 7-1...

Paustian went just 3 innings, allowing 5 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and he struck out 4. Six relievers combined for 6 innings with 3 hits, 3 runs, 5 walks, and 6 strikeouts. The injuries are really starting to take a toll...

Jr. was 1-for-2 with a solo homer and two walks. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 in his return from the DL.

31-year-old SS Francisco Lindor hit his 2,000th career hit. The switch hitter is a career .310/.378/.521 hitter with 283 homers, 1,028 RBI's, and has been worth a total of 72.4 Wins Above Replacement. The Indians superstar looks to be a first ballot hall of famer and perhaps the best shortstop of all time.

August 7th, 2025: A pair of pitchers are out for the year. The Angels Lane McCullers Jr. tore his ulnar collateral ligament and the Yankees Corbin Burnes stretched his elbow ligament. Both guys were struggling this season, with ERA's above 5.

We looked to halt our 7 game losing streak with Shoehi Ohtani (3-1, 3.36 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) facing young star Liam Norris (2-0, 1.86 ERA, 0.83 WHIP) who's making his first big league start after 5 relief appearences. We kept falling, dropping the middle game 4-2.

Ohtani went 3.2 innings, allowing 3 hits, 2 runs, 4 walks, and he struck out 6. Isaiah Musa allowed a run off a hit, 3 walks, and 2 strikeouts in the 7th inning.

Jeison Guzman was 2-for-4 with a steal. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Isan Diaz had a pinch hit solo homer in the 8th. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a double. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-4 with a double.

Cubs C Adley Rustchman hit for the cycle in a 16-4 win over the Pirates. He was also 5-for-5 for a double milestone.

August 7th, 2025: Lazaro Armenteros will head to the GCL for a rehab assignment. He's also now considered "fragile" as my roster may have to change a lot...

We looked to avoid another sweep with Jake Florence (6-6, 4.22 ERA, 1.42 WHIP) taking on Chad Bradenburg (3-8, 6.38 ERA, 1.63 WHIP). We also now sit 4 games out of first with just a 4 game lead on the 2nd Wild Card. I don't even know what is happening, and we lost 4-2...

SWEPT AT HOME!?!?!? 9 LOSSES IN A ROW!?!?!

Thankfully, tomorrow is an off day...

Florence went 3 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Joseph Jarneski went 2 innings with 3 hits, a run, walk, and 2 strikeotus. Alpha Quivers allowed 2 hits and struck out 3 in 2 innings.

Cole Roederer was 2-for-5 with a double, triple, and two runs scored. Juan Ramirez was 3-for-5 with a pair of doubles, 2 RBI's, and was 1-for-2 on steals. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-2 with three walks. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a steal and double.

Madison Bumgarner tossed a 5-hit shutout as the Giants beat the Orioles 8-0. Royals slugger Chris DeVito hit three homers in a 13-2 win over the Athletics.

August 8th-August 14th

August 8th, 2025: Believe it or not, we can't lose today. We'd stay home and the Diamondbacks would come to town. We'll see Rafael Montero (5-1, 4.99 ERA), Zach Linginfelter (7-4, 4.07 ERA), and Jean-Christophe Hernandez.

August 9th, 2025: We had to attempt to end our losing streak against the first place Diamondbacks and Rafel Montero (5-1, 4.99 ERA, 1.46 WHIP). Mike Soroka (8-7, 3.31 ERA, 1.17 WHIP), who has struggled as of late, will look to end the skid. We really wanted to lose, and let them tie it up in the 9th at 5. Luckily, Thomas Dillard was fed up with losing and hit a walk off single to win it.

Soroka pitched well, 6 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Isaiah Musa, Chasen Shreve, and A.J. Lavas got holds before Jorge Moya blew the save. Labas allowed a run in 0.2 innings on a hit and walk. Moya, who ended up with the win, pitched an inning with 2 hits, 2 runs, and a strikeout.

Shoehi Ohtani went 3-for-4 with a double, run scored, and 4 RBI's. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 walks, and a steal. Thomas Dillard was 3-for-5 with a double and the game winning RBI. Cole Roederer was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, a walk, and a double.

August 10th, 2025: We looked to win another game with Walker Buehler (6-5, 2.38 ERA, 0.99 WHIP) taking on Zach Linginfelter (7-4, 4.07 ERA, 1.35 WHIP). We decided winning was overrated, and dropped the middle game 3-1.

All three runs Buehler allowed were unearned. He went 5 innings with a walk and 5 strikeouts. The rest of the pen tossed 4 innings with 2 hits, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts.

Juan Ramriez was 2-for-4 with a run scored, a triple, and two steals. Seth Beer was 0-for-2, but had a sacrafice fly that drove in Ramirez.

Angels RF Mike Smedley went 5-for-7 in a 5-4 loss to the Rangers.

August 11th, 2025: Angels LF Peter Crow-Armstrong is out for the year with a partially torn labrum. He was hitting .256 with 13 homers and 42 RBI's in his rookie year.

We dropped all the way down to 12th in the Power Rankings, and are now just 66-47.

We looked to win our first series in eons with Steve Paustian (5-4, 3.98 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) taking on Jean-Christopher Hernandez (8-4, 4.76 ERA, 1.44 WHIP). It was a close one, but we edged them 5-3 to win the series.

Cole Roederer left with a bruised forearm while stealing a base, but he won't head to the DL.

Paustian went 6, allowing 6 hits, 3 runs, and he struck out 3. Hyo-jin Yaung and Alpha Quivers got holds while Jorge Moya got the save. Quivers struck out the side in the 8th on 15 pitches.

Juan Ramirez went 2-for-4 with a double, homer, 2 runs, and 3 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 wtih a double. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with another sac-fly.

We're off to Colorado to face the Rockeis for three. We'll see Jake Webb (4-8, 5.42 ERA), A.J. Puk (3-3, 3.67 ERA), and Enyel De Los Santos (5-9, 6.61 ERA).

August 12th, 2025: Deshawn Hardamon was hurt in his rehab assignment, and will head to the DL for 3 weeks with a strained rib cage muscle.

We opened the series at Coors Field with Shoehi Ohtani (3-2, 3.44 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) facing Jake Webb (4-8, 5.42 ERA, 1.47 WHIP). We scored 4 quick runs in the first to win the opener 7-4.

Ohtani lasted just 4.1 innings, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, and 5 strikeouts. Joseph Jarneski finished the inning and got the win. Greg Walston was charged with 2 runs off 2 hits and a walk in 0.2 innings. Musa and Shreve got holds before Moya got the save. Musa struck out 3 in 1.1 innings with Shreve striking out the side in the 8th.

Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with 2 walks and a grand slam in the first. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-5 with 2 runs scored. Jeison Guzman was 1-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, and sac-fly.

Former Marlin Cole Brannen went 5-for-5 in a 12-4 Blue Jays win over the Twins.

August 13th, 2025: I activated Dinelson Lamet from the DL and optioned A.J. Labas to AAA, despite how good he's been. Jake Florence (6-7, 4.34 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) took on A.J. Puck (3-3, 3.67 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) in the middle game. We got four in the sixth this time, and won 7-3.

Florence tossed 5 shutout innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Marc Bjork allowed a run in the 6th with a hit, walk, and 2 strikeouts. Joseph Jarneski allowed 2 runs (1 earned) in 2.2 innings with 3 hits and a strikeout.

Cole Roederer was 2-for-4 wiht a homer, 2 runs, 3 RBI's, and a steal. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a solo homer and two total runs. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a double, 2 runs, and a steal. Jeison Guzman was 1-for-3 with a walk and 2 RBI's. Junior made a pair of errors and was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

August 14th, 2025: Could we pull of a sweep? Mike Soroka (8-7, 3.30 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) battled Enyel De Los Santos (4-9, 6.61 ERA, 1.68 WHIP) in the finale. It took 14 innings, but we got three in the top half to win 8-5.

I did lose two players to injury, LF Juan Ramirez and RF Shoehi Ohtani. Ramirez will miss 2 weeks and head to the DL, while Ohtani should be better tomorrow. Walker Buehler had to play RF for the bottom of the 14th.

Soroka went 5, allowing 7 hits, 4 runs, and 2 strikeouts. Musa and Yaung got holds, before Alpha Quivers blew the save in the 8th. He allowed 3 hits, a run, and got a strikeout. 6 more pitchers combined for 6 innings with 3 hits, 4 walks, and 10 strikeouts. Moya struck out the side in the 11th. Marc Bjork got the win and Chasen Shreve got the save, getting the last batter of the game to strikeout.

Seth Beer and Thomas Dillard went back to back in the 14th. Beer was 2-for-6 with 2 runs, a walk, a two run homer, and 3 RBI's. Dillard was 1-for-5 with 2 walks, 2 runs, and a solo homer. Vladdy was 4-for-6 with a run scored, RBI, a walk, and 2 doubles. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-6 with 2 runs, a walk, and a double.

I was going to recall Lazaro Armenteros from his rehab assignment, but he tore his quadriceps and will miss 5 weeks. Nice...

We're off to LA for three against the Dodgers. We'll see Foster Griffin (6-1, 3.43 ERA), Juan Sorinao (0-1, 3.48 ERA), and Jose Quintana (11-6, 3.50 ERA).

August 15th-August 21st

August 15th, 2025: Shoehi Ohtani asked for an extension, and I wish I could extend him. Sadly, I still have a Miami budget...

With a full 40, I was forced to call up RF Max Marusak.

We continued the roadtrip and opened the series with the Dodgers with former Dodger Walker Buehler (6-6, 2.27 ERA, 1.01 WHIP) facing Foster Griffin (6-1, 3.43 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) who is pitching off short rest. The speedy Marusak hit 8th and will play center. We continued to stay hot and streaky, and won 8-3.

Shoehi Ohtani left with groin soreness, but is still just day to day.

Buehler went 5.1 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and he stcuk out 6. Isaiah Musa got a hold, finishing the 6th with just 4 pitches.

Marusak was an impressive 2-for-5 with a triple, run scored, and 4 RBI's in his 2025 debut. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, an RBI, double, and walk. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-5 with an RBI and walk. Cole Roederer was 1-for-3 with a run scored, 2 walks, and a steal.

August 16th, 2025: I hope you dind't forget about Jordan Montgomery, and the still 3.5* starting pitcher can begin rehab today. He'll head to Jupiter and really hasn't lost any ratings. He's not on the 60, so it'll be a while before he rejoins the team.

We looked to keep rolling with Steve Paustian (6-4, 4.01 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) battling veteran southpaw Jose Quintana (11-6, 3.50 ERA, 1.16 WHIP). The offense exploded for 21 hits to win the middle game 13-4.

Paustian went 5 innings, allowing 6 hits, 4 runs, a walk, and he struck out 3. Joseph Jarneski and Chasen Shreve got holds beofre we exploded for 6 insurance runs in the 9th.

Seth Beer was 4-for-6 with 2 runs, an RBI, and a double. Jeison Guzman was 4-for-5 with 2 runs, 3 RBI's, a double, and a steal. Cole Roederer was 3-for-5 with 2 runs, steal, and RBI. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with 2 runs, a walk, and steal. Austin Hendrick was 2-for-5 with a run scored, 2 RBI's, and a steal. Paustian the pitcher was 2-for-2 with a run scored. Thomas Dillard replaced him in a double switch, and was 2-for-3 with a run scored and 2 RBI's.

Jake Lamb of the Mets hit his 300th homer. The 34-year-old is a career .241/.324/.457 with the Diamondbacks and Mets in 1,611 games and 5,905 career at bats.

April 17th, 2025: We looked to sweep past the Dodgers with Shoehi Ohtani (3-2, 3.49 ERA, 1.31 WHIP) facing Ryan Zeferjahn, who was making his season debut. Let's make that a little difficult for him! We got three in the 9th, but still fell 8-7.

Ohtani allowed 7 runs in 4 innings with 6 hits, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Marc Bjork was charged with a run in 2 innings with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts.

Cole Roederer was 3-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 steals, a walk, and an RBI. Austin Hendrick was 0-for-1, but scored twice, drove in a run, stole a base, and walked 4 times. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with 2 walks and 3 RBI's. Isan Diaz had a pinch hit double in the 7th and scored a run. Jon Reid was 1-for-4 with a run and double.

Our marathon of games continues with four in San Diego before a day off. We'd see MacKenzie Gore (9-6, 3.26 ERA), Dakota Donovan (6-5, 5.77 ERA), Charles King (7-5, 3.29 ERA), and Chris Rodriguez (6-6, 4.87 ERA).

August 18th, 2025: Dylan Cease will begin a rehab assignment in AA Jacksonville. Like Montgomery, he is not on the 40-Man roster. Former Marlin Cliff Merritt is out for the year with a ruptured ulnar colllateral ligament. He pitched much better with the Mets, working a 1.23 ERA in 7.1 innigns with 8 strikeouts.

We moved all the way back up to third in the Power Rankings, and sit just 3 out of first with a 72-48 record.

The first of four games at Petco Park took place between Jake Florence (7-7, 4.16 ERA, 1.44 WHIP) and MacKenzie Gore (9-6, 3.26 ERA, 1.13 WHIP). We couldn't score, and were shut out 2-0.

Florence went 6, allowing 6 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and he struck out 6. Greg Walston and Hyo-jin Yaung both tossed scorless innings. We had just 2 hits, a pair of singles. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 and Jeison Guzman was 1-for-3.

Gore tossed a two-hit shutout and struck out 9 without allowing a walk.

August 19th, 2025: We looked to bounce back with Mike Soroka (8-7, 3.44 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) facing Dakota Donovan (6-5, 5.77 ERA, 1.47 WHIP). Former Padre Austin Hedges hit a pinch-hit solo homer in the top of the 9th and we won 2-1 to even the series.

Soroka was great, 7 innings with 5 hits, a run, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. Alpha Quivers got the win, and Jorge Moya earned his 28th save with a perfect 9th.

Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a double and run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with an RBI. Cole Roederer was 2-for-5. Jeison Guzman was 2-for-4.

Tigers 27-year-old rookie 1B Bert Robertson launched 3 homers in a 8-6 win over the Mariners.

August 20th, 2025: Former Marlin Jace Vines tore his labrum and will miss the rest of the year. He was 2-4 with a 7.04 ERA in a dreadful campaign. Man, I thought he was going to be so good...

We looked to take the series lead with Walker Buehler (7-6, 2.40 ERA, 1.01 WHIP) taking on Charles King (7-5, 3.29 ERA, 1.24 WHIP). We got 1 in the 9th to tie it at 3. In the 12th, Jeison Guzman hit a sacrafice fly, and we edged the Friars 4-3.

Buehler tossed 5 innings, allowing 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and he struck out 10. Alpha Quivers allowed an unearned run in the 8th off a hit and strikeout. Jorge Moya got the win, 2 innings with 2 strikeouts before Joseph Jarneski earned the save.

Cole Roederer went 1-for-6 with a steal. Vlad Jr. came off the bench to play center, and went 2-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, and the error. He repalced Max Marusak, who was 1-for-2 with a pair of RBI's.

Cubs righty Florencio Serrano tossed a 3-hit shutout in a 4-0 win over the Reds.

August 21st, 2025: We looked to win the series with a tired squad lead by Steve Puastian (7-4, 4.12 ERA, 1.43 WHIP). We saw our playoff nemesis Chris Rodriguez (6-6, 4.87 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) who beat us earlier in the season, despite a sub par perfromance. We both scored 2 in the first, but they got 2 more in the 4th to win the finale 4-2.

Paustian allowed 4 runs in 5 innings with 6 hits, 3 walks, and 3 strikeouts. The rest of the pen tossed 4 innings with 3 hits, a walk, and 2 strikeouts.

Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and run scored. Shoehi Ohtani was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with an RBI and hit by pitch.

White Sox rookie Luis Lechuga was 5-for-7 in a 6-5 win over the Royals.

Thankfully, tomorrow is an off day, and we're just 2.5 games out of first. With August winding down, we're just 9-11 for the month, which matches our most for any other month (April 13-11 and June 15-11).

August 22nd-August 28th

August 22nd, 2025: We got tomorrow off, and will head home to face the Nationals. We'll see Cole Ragans (13-7, 3.61 ERA) and Jay Groome (6-10, 5.20 ERA) in a quick two game series before another off day.

August 23rd, 2025: We opened the series with Shoehi Ohtani (3-3, 4.15 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) facing Cole Ragans (13-7, 3.61 ERA, 1.30 WHIP). The Nationals got 5 in the 5th and 4 in the 9th to win 9-7. Two bad innings...

Ohtani had a rough outing, 4.2 innings with 6 hits, 5 runs, 5 walks, and a strikeout. Jorge Moya blew the save, 0.2 innings with 4 hits, 4 runs, and a strikeout.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 3-for-4 with a double, homer, walk, and 4 RBI's. Seth Beer was 2-for-5 with a double, run scored, and 2 RBI's. Max Marusak was 1-for-3 with 2 runs scored, a steal, and he was hit by a pitch. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with 3 runs, an RBI, and walk.

August 24th, 2025: The Yankees will be without veteran reliever Yimi Garcia with radial nerve compression. He was 2-0 with a 4.09 ERA.

We looked to escpae with the split with Jake Florence (7-8, 4.10 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) facing Jay Groome (6-10, 5.20 ERA, 1.42 WHIP). It was a beautiful pitching matchip, and we shut them out 1-0.

Florence was amazing, looking like the #1 pick he was, going 8 innings with 4 hits, a walk, and 9 strikeouts. Moya made up for it, getting the save with a perfect 9th.

Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a solo homer. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-2 with a hit by pitch.

Tomorrow was another day off, before we welcome the AL Central Indians to town.

August 25th, 2025: Juan Ramirez hasn't recovered as planned, and there is no update to when he'll return. He was hitting .397/.457/.770 with 9 homers, 33 RBI's, and 9 steals in 32 games.

At 75-51, we rank #1 in the power rankings.

The Indians come to town, and we'll see Kyle Molnar (6-10, 4.32 ERA), Jim Voyles (3-2, 5.81 ERA), and Yonny Chirinos (9-10, 4.92 ERA). We're just 1.5 games out of first, and we could take the division again with a solid series here before we host the Braves.

Aufust 26th, 2025: Walker Buehler (7-6, 2.45 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) opened the series against Kyle Molnar (6-10, 4.32 ERA, 1.29 WHIP). It was another great pitching duel, and we took the opener 2-1.

Buehler went 5.2 innings with 4 hits, a run, and 10 strikeouts. Greg Walston got the win, going 1.1 innings wiht a strikeout. Alpha Quivers and Jorge Moya got holds before Hyo-jin Taung got the save. Moya allowed a hit and a walk with 2 strikeouts before Yaung got a strikeout to end the game.

Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a walk and solo homer. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-3 with a walk and solo homer. Jeison Guzman was 2-for-3 with a double. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a double.

August 27th, 2025: Game two saw Mike Soroka (8-7, 3.33 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) face Jim Voyles (3-2, 5.81 ERA, 1.55 WHIP). A third straight pitching duel, but this time we lost 2-1.

Soroka went 8, allowing 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve and Alpha Quivers got the 9th with 2 walks and a strikeout.

Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a triple, sac-fly, and RBI. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a double. Vladmir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored.

August 28th, 2025: Will D. Smith is out for the year with a fractured ankle. He was hitting .240 with 3 homers and 10 RBI's.

Nationals SP Jhon Vergara will also miss the rest of the year with shoulder inflammation. The 25-year-old was in his first season with the Nationals, and was 4-7 with a 5.32 ERA and 74 strikeouts in 116.2 innings.

We looked to walk away with a split with Steve Paustian (7-5, 4.23 ERA, 1.45 WHIP) taking on former Marlin Yonny Chirinos (9-10, 4.82 ERA, 1.33 WHIP). We got some offense today, and won the finale 8-3.

Greg Walston, however, left with a herniated disc, and will hit the deal for hopefully just 10 days.

Paustian went 5.2 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, 5 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Walston and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before we broke away in the 8th.

Cole Roederer was 3-for-5 and a triple away from the cycle. He also scored twice. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Seth Beer was 2-for-5 with a double, homer, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with a double and RBI. Max Marusak was 2-for-4 with two RBI's.

Up next is the first place Braves, who have a 2.5 game lead over us. We'll see Tyler Glasnow (8-6, 4.11 ERA), Cole Winn (10-9, 3.73 ERA), Lucas Sims (6-7, 4.72 ERA), and Ian Bedell (3-1, 2.91 ERA) in a clash of the best two teams in the league.

August 29th-September 4th

August 29th, 2025: I recalled Slade Cecconi from AAA before the game.

We open the first of four crucial games against Atlanta in Marlins Park with Shoehi Ohtani (3-3, 4.48 ERA, 1.40 WHIP) facing Tyler Glasnow (8-6, 4.11 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) and a tired Braves team. We have to use this to our advantage. Or, we can lose 5-1 to give them a pity win...

In possibly his last start of the year, Ohtani went 5.2 innings with 6 hits, 4 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Joseph Jarneski allowed a run in 2 innings with 2 hits and 5 strikeouts.

Jon Reid had a pinch hit triple in the 7th and later scored. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-3 with a double.

August 30th, 2025: Game two saw Cole Winn (10-9, 3.73 ERA, 1.00 WHIP) and Jake Florence (8-8, 3.86 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) battle in a high quality pitching matchup. We evened the series up with a nice 2-1 win.

Florence went 6.2 innings with 3 hits, a run, walk, and 5 strikeouts. Hyo-jin Yaung and Alpha Quivers both got holds, and Jorge Moya got the save.

Austin Hendrick was 1-for-4 with a run scored and 2 steals. Jeison Guzman was 2-for-3 with a double and RBI. Max Marusak had an interesting game, 0-for-0 with a walk, hit by pitch, and steal. Cole Roederer was 1-for-3 with a walk. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with an RBI.

August 31st, 2025: Deshawn Hardamon will start a quick rehab assignment at AAA. I'd call him up after the Braves series.

Atlanta's SP Ian Bedell tore his labrum and will miss the rest of the year and possibly part of next year. He was 3-1 with a 2.91 ERA in 11 starts with 46 strikeouts in 65 innings.

We looked to take the series lead with Walker Buehler (7-6, 2.41 ERA, 1.01 WHIP) taking on Lucas Sims (6-7, 4.72 ERA, 1.30 WHIP). We got 3 in the 7th to tie the game up, but the Braves won in 10 innings 4-3.

Buehler went 5, allowing 6 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Chasen Shreve alloewd a run, hit, and got a strikeout in the 6th. Yaung got the loss, a run off a hit, walk, and 2 strikeouts in the 10th.

Jeison Guzman was 1-for-4 with a three run homer. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a steal and walk. Austin Hedges was 2-for-4.

September 1st, 2025: Rosters expand today, but most callups won't happen until later.

We dropped to 5th in the Power Raknings at 78-54. Guess who is #1? Of course, the Braves...

We looked to earn the split with Mike Soroka (8-8, 3.28 ERA, 1.15 WHIP) taking on Zach Attianese (3-3, 2.53 ERA, 1.20 WHIP). The Braves bested us again, this time 4-2, to expand their lead on us.

Soroka went 6.1 innings with 7 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Marc Bjork allowed a run in the 8th off a hit, walk, and strikeout. Isaiah Musa allowed a run in th e9th with 2 htis, a walk, and a strikeout.

Vlad Jr. was 3-for-5 with an RBI. Cole Roederer was 2-for-4 with a steal. Jeison Guzman was 1-for-3 with a walk and double. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a run scored and walk. Shohei Ohtani was 2-for-5.

We'll look to bounce back in Philadelphia with three with the still over .500 and 70-63 Phillies. We'll see Steve Fettig (15-3, 2.99 ERA), Mateo Gill (1-2, 4.88 ERA), and Adam Haseley (5-6, 5.24 ERA).

September 2nd, 2025: I recalled Deshawn Hardamon from his rehab assignment.

Steve Paustian (8-5, 4.25 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) opened the series against Steve Fettig (15-3, 2.99 ERA, 1.10 WHIP). We got three in the ninth to rally back for a 5-4 win.

Paustian went 5.2 innings with 9 hits, 4 runs, 5 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Marc Bjork improved to 7-1 with 2.1 innings, a hit, and 2 strikeouts. Moya got a hold and Quivers a save.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-3 with 2 walks and 2 solo homers. Shoehi Ohtani had a pinch hit solo homer in the 9th. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4.

September 3rd, 2025: Down in AAA, I had to place Garrett McDaniels on the 60-Day DL with a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. It does make room on the 40 for Cease, however.

The Orioles will be without LHP Bobby Poyner for the year with a torn labrum. He was 7-1 with a 3.55 ERA and 3 saves.

The 46-88 Cardinals have been eliminated from postseason contention. They are 28.5 games behind the Cubs.

We looked to win the series a day early with Shoehi Ohtani (3-4, 4.61 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) facing Mateo Gill (1-2, 4.88 ERA, 1.28 WHIP). We got 5 in the 5th and won 11-3 to win our 80th of the year.

Ohtani went 6.1 innings, allowing 2 hits, 3 runs, 5 walks, and getting 6 strikeouts. Dinelson Lamet finished the game, going 2.2 innings with a hit and 4 strikeouts.

Isaac Nunez went 2-for-3 with 3 runs, 3 RBI's, a steal, 2 walks, and 2 homers. Vlad Jr. was 2-for-3 with 2 walks and 2 solo homers. Austin Hedges was 2-for-5 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a homer. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a walk, and a homer. Ohtani was 2-for-3 with a double and RBI. Cole Roederer was 1-for-5 with a double. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-5 with a run scored and double. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with a run scored in his day back.

September 4th, 2025: I recalled Jordan Montgomery and Dylan Cease from their rehab assignments to fill my 40-man roster back up.

Angels righty Stephen Pelli partially tore his ulnar collateral ligament and could miss all of 2026 as well. He was 8-6 in 27 starts with a 3.95 ERA and 138 strikeouts in 155 innings.

We looked to finish the sweep with Jake Florence (9-8, 3.74 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) taking on two-way starter Adam Haseley (5-6, 5.24 ERA, 1.49 WHIP). I don't know why the Phillies trot him out to start, but their pitching isn't really that good. It was a beautiful way to end the series, and we won 9-1.

Florence allowed an unearned run in 6 innings with 4 hits and 7 strikeouts. Slade Cecconi and Isaiah Musa combined for 3 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and 5 strikeouts.

Deshawn Hardamon went 3-for-5 with 2 runs and a solo homer. Vlad Jr. was 2-for-5 with a double, homer, and 3 RBI's. Seth Beer was 2-for-5 with 2 runs and a solo homer and a double. Austin Hendrick was 2-for-5 with a two run homer. Cole Roederer was 2-for-5 with a run scored, steal, and RBI. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a run scored and double. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a run scored and steal.

A pair of hitters got 5 hits today. The Orioles RF Mike Verbeck was 5-for-6 in a 16-6 win over the Mariners. The Braves 2B Jeff Houghtby was also 5-for-5 in a 16-4 win over the Cardinals.

We're off to Washington for three games against the Nationals. We'll see Gage Hinsz (16-2, 2.83 ERA), Sonny Warner (6-4, 3.13 ERA), and Jay Groome (6-12, 5.07 ERA).

September 5th-September 11th

September 5th, 2025: I sent Juan Ramirez to AAA on a quick rehab assignment, and I'd bring him back on the 9th when we start the series following our current one.

We opened a series in Washington with Jordan Montgomery making his season debut against Gage Hinsz (16-2, 2.83 ERA, 1.05 WHIP). We got four in the 8th, but still fell 6-5 in the opener.

Montgomery's start didn't go as well as old Mongomery, 2.1 innings with 6 hits, 5 runs, 3 walks, and a strikeout. Dinelson Lamet went 2.2 innings with a hit, walk, and 5 strikeouts. Marc Bjork pitched the 7th, allowing 3 hits and a run, but he struck out the side.

Seth Beer was 3-for-5 with a double and solo homer. Austin Hendrick was 2-for-5 with a solo homer. Max Marusak was 2-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with a run scored.

September 6th, 2025: The Braves lost star SP Cole Winn for the rest of this year and most likely all of next year with elbow ligament reconstruction surgery. It's an awful loss for the Braves, and he was 10-10 with a 3.69 ERA, 1.01 WHIP, and 137 strikeouts in 156 innings.

September 6th, 2025: We looked to even things up with Walker Buehler (7-6, 2.45 ERA, 1.02 WHIP) taking on Sonny Warner (6-4, 3.13 ERA, 1.22 WHIP). We got 4 insurance runs in the 9th to win the second game 8-3.

Buehler went 5 innings, allowing 3 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Joseph Jarneski got a hold, 2 innings with a strikeout. Alpha Quivers also got a hold, before Slade Cecconi pitched a perfect 9th to end it. Both him and Quivers struck out a pair.

Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a walk and grand slam in the top of the 9th. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a solo homer, 2 runs, and 2 walks. Jeison Guzman was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Thomas Dillard came off the bench and was 1-for-2 with a run scored. Vlad Jr. was 2-for-4 with a walk.

September 7th, 2025: We looked to win the series with Mike Soroka (8-9, 3.26 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) facing Jay Groome (6-12, 5.07 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). The offense fell asleep, and we dropped the finale 3-1.

Soroka pitched the whole game, 8 innings with 7 hits, 3 runs, and 5 strikeouts.

Jeison Guzman was 1-for-2 wtih a double. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a double. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 and had the last of our 4 hits.

September 8th, 2025: With the off day, I had a few moves I could make. First, I called up Caleb Balgaard from AAA and actiavted Greg Walston for the DL. Next, I sent J.P. Gates back to AA on rehab. I'd have to make room on the 40, or DFA him later. Tomorrow, I could shuffle the rosters to make more callups.

Vlad Jr. was named player of the week, going 13-for-27 with 5 homers and 8 RBI's.

I'm back up to 4th in the Power Rankings with a 82-57 record.

Pittsburgh was elimnated from the postseason. At 52-86, they were 26 games out of first place.

We're off to Detroit, and we'll see Michael Fulmer (9-10, 4.85 ERA), Nazeem bin Lahab (8-4, 4.17 ERA), and Franklin Perez (4-4, 4.91 ERA).

September 9th, 2025: The Boston Red Sox were eliminated from the playoffs. At 52-87, they were 24 games behind the Orioles and Rays.

I recalled Juan Ramirez from his rehab assignment. I also recalled Luis Ardon, Gunnar Hoglund, Mason Barnett, A.J. Labas, Ernesto Estrella, Kenyon Yovan, and Jake Taylor. The only minor leauger left on the 40 that are not activated is Devonte Brown, who is about 5 days away from healing from his injury. Gates is also on rehab, but not on the 40.

We opened the series in Detroit with Seve Paustian (8-5, 4.33 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) taking on Michael Fulmer (9-10, 4.85 ERA, 1.38 WHIP). The full day of rest yesterday should do us good. We couldn't get the offense going, and they edged us 3-2.

Paustian went 6.2 innings, allowing 6 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and he struck out 4. Alpha Quivers got the loss, allowing a solo homer and getting two strikeouts in the 8th.

Seth Beer went 2-for-3 with a walk and double. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-2 with a run scored. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-2 off the bench.

September 10th, 2025: Jameson Tailon tore his rotator cuff and will miss most of next season as well. He was 2-1 out of the pen with a 2.79 ERA.

We looked to end our rut with Jake Florence (10-8, 3.58 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) taking on Franklin Perez (4-4, 4.91 ERA, 1.33 WHIP). We still can't score, and we lost 2-1...

Florence went 7 innings, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, and 7 strikeouts. Quivers struck out 2 in the 8th.

Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a double and RBI. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4. Seth Beer was 0-for-3 with a walk and run scored.

The Mariners 1B Paul Goldschmidt recorded his 400th career homer. He's a career .279/.387/.502 hitter in 7,876 career games with Seattle, Toronto, and Arizona.

September 11th, 2025: The Angels will be without Joel Urena for the rest of the year with shoulder inflammation. The 26-year-old lefty was 6-1 with a 3.46 ERA in 39 relief appearences and should be back for spring training.

Pirates reliever Chandler Ferguson damaged his elbow ligament, and will most likely miss all of next year as well. He was 2-6 with a 4.63 ERA in 34 relief appearences.

1B Andy Bostic ruptured his medial collateral ligament and will miss the rest of the year and will miss most of next year as well. He was hitting .261 with 15 homers and 59 RBI's.

We looked to avoid the sweep with Jordan Montgomery (0-1, 19.29 ERA, 3.86 WHIP) taking on Tyler Beede (7-6, 4.74 ERA, 1.45 WHIP). The offense woke up, and we scored 9 to win the finale 9-6.

Montgomery was a bit better, 4.1 innings with 4 hits, 3 runs, 5 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Dinelson Lamet got the win, 2.1 innings with 3 hits, 3 runs (2 earned) and 2 strikeouts. Hyo-jin Yaung, Ernesto Estrella, and Chasen Shreve got holds. Jorge Moya got his 31st save tossing a scorless 9th.

Deshawn Hardamon was the man of the day, 3-for-4 with a pair of doubles and 5 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 3-for-5 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Vlad Jr. was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, a double, 2 walks, and an RBI. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-4 with 2 runs, a walk, double, and RBI. Seth Beer was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored.

We're headed back home for four with the Phillies. We'll see former Marlin Josh Weske (4-8, 4.42 era), Steve Fettig (15-4, 3.05 ERA), Jonathan Childress (0-0, 6.75 ERA), and an unnamed 5th starter. They're 71-71 and 15.5 games out of first.

September 12th-September 18th

September 12th, 2025: We start a nice long homestand with a four game series against the Phillies. Walker Buehler (8-6, 2.50 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) took on Mashiaro Tanka (4-10, 5.13 ERA, 1.24 WHIP), and both starters have struggled against their opponent. Up 4-3, Jorge Moya allowed a 2 run homer to Jackie Bradley Jr. In the bottom hald, Vladimir Guerrero Jr. hit a run scoring single off former Marlin Jimmy Sherfy to tie the game. In the 10th, Isaac Nunez had a walkoff single off Jordan Gubelman, and we took the opener 6-5.

Buehler had a rough outing, 4.1 innings with 3 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 6 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Shoehi Ohtani went 1.2 innings with a hit, 3 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Hyo-jin Yaung struck out the side in the 8th to earn a hold. Moya was charged with 2 runs off a hit, walk, and 2 strikeouts. Alpha Quivers tossed a perfect 10th, striking out 2 and earning the win.

Austin Hendrick was 3-for-5 with a triple, two doubles, a run scored, and two driven in. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-5 with a double and the walk off single. Vlad Jr. was 2-for-5 with 2 RBI's. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a double, walk, and run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a walk, run scored, and run driven in.

September 13th, 2025: Devonte Brown was activated from the AAA DL and recalled.

The White Sox will be without RHP Matt Andriese for the rest of the season, although he should be ready for Spring Training. His story is an interesting one: after spending parts of 2015-2018 with the Rays, he spent 2019-2023 in AAA with multiple organizations before returning to the majors in 2024. He only tossed 2.1 innings in the majors this year, but he was 1-1 with a 19.29 ERA and 3.86 WHIP.

Mike Soroka (8-10, 3.26 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) took on Steve Fettig (15-4, 3.05 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) in the second game of the series. We got 3 key insurance runs in the 5th and it was critical on the path to a 7-2 win.

Soroka went 7.2 innings, allowing 6 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and he struck out 6. Jorge Moya got out of a bases loaded, zero outs jam that Luis Ardon created, and was credited with 2 strikeouts and a save.

Isaac Nunez was 3-for-4 and a triple away from the cycle. He scored 3 times and drove in 2 runs. The pitcher Soroka was 2-for-3 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI's. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a triple, run scored, and RBI.

September 14th, 2025: We looked to keep rolling with Steve Paustian (8-5, 4.26 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) taking on our former 1st Round Pick Josh Weske (4-8, 4.42 ERA, 1.45 WHIP). Tied 2-2 heading into the 9th, Caleb Balgaard got a pinch hit, walkoff single off Gubelman to finish off a thirlling 3-2 win.

Dylan Cease left with an injury, and his diagonsis is still pending...

Paustian piutched well, 6.1 innings with 5 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Hyo-jin Yaung got the win, striking out 2 in a perfect 9th.

Austin Hedges was 1-for-2 with a solo homer and sac fly. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-3 with a walk and 2 runs scored.

Manny Machado was 5-for-5 in an 18-7 Giants win over Arizona. Brady Singer tossed a 2-hit shutout with 10 strikeouts in a 6-0 Mets win over the Nationals.

September 15th, 2025: Cease was diagnosed with a sprained ankle, and will be day to day for just 2 days.

At 86-59 and just 2 games out of first, we hopped over Atlanta for #1 in the Power Rankings, with the Mets right behind them.

We looked to finish the four game sweep with Jake Florence (10-9, 3.54 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) taking on former 12th Round PIck Jonathan Childress (0-0, 6.75 ERA, 1.50 WHIP), who is making his first career start after 6 relief appearences all in this season. We couldn't cap off the sweep, and dropped the finale 6-2.

Florence went just 2.1 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, and striking out just 2. A.J. Labas allowed 3 more runs off 4 hits and 3 walks in 1.2 innings. The rest of the pen pitched 5, 1-hit innings with 3 walks and 7 strikeouts.

Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-3 with a two run homer. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a walk and double. Labas and Hyo-jin Yaung were both 1-for-1 as pitchers hitting for themselves.

The Mets come to town for three to finish our 7 game home stretch, although we do have three more home games after a day off. We'll see Francisco Morales (4-2, 4.26 ERA), Livio Montella (2-7, 5.23 ERA), and Michael Wacha (7-8, 3.26 ERA).

September 16th, 2025: Angels righty Vince Velasquez ruptured his unlar collateral ligament, and will most likely miss all of next year. He was 5-7 with a 4.93 ERA in 80.1 innings with 93 hits and 68 strikeouts.

A packed Marlins Park got to see the opener in the Marlins-Mets series that saw Jordan Montgomery (0-1, 10.80 ERA, 2.70 WHIP) duel Francisco Morales (4-2, 4.26 ERA, 1.34 WHIP). We were up 4-2 heading to the 9th, but the Mets got two off Moya to send it to Extras. They then took a 5-4 lead in the 11th. Thomas Dillard took Lupe Chavez deep to tie up the game, but fast foward to the 13th, and Ahmed Rosario hit a go-ahead grand slam off Joseph Jarneski, and the visitors took the opener 9-5.

Max Marusak left with back stiffness, and he'll head to the DL.

Montgomery pitched fine, 6 innings with 9 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts in his third start of the year. Ernesto Estrella, Chasen Shreve, Alpha Quivers, and Greg Walston got holds before Moya blew the save with 2 hits and 2 runs. Dinelso Lamet pitched 2 innings and allowed 2 hits and an unearned run with 4 strikeouts. Jarneski got just 1 out, and allowed 3 hits and 4 runs.

Thomas Dillard was 2-for-6 with a double, homer, and 3 RBI's. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a solo homer. Austin Hendrick was 3-for-6 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Caleb Balgaard was 1-for-5 with a double and run scored.

September 17th, 2025: We looked to bounce back with Walker Buehler (8-6, 2.55 ERA, 1.06 WHIP) taking on Livio Montella (2-7, 5.23 ERA, 1.53) who's making just his 2nd start of the year after 59 relief appearences. 'El Torito' is actaully a very promising pitching prospect who still has a lot of developing to do. We did just enough to come away with a 4-2 win to even the series.

Buehler went just 5, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and he struck out 5. Dylan Cease tossed 2 innings with a hit, walk, adn 2 strikeouts to get the win. Chasen Shreve struck out the side in the 8th to earn a hold, while Jorge Moya got two strikeouts in the 9th for a save.

Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a solo omer. Caleb Balgaard was 2-for-2 with 2 doubles and 2 RBI's. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a double. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-3 with a double and run scored. Isaac Nunez was 0-for-2 with 2 runs and 2 walks.

September 18th, 2025: I activated Lazaro Armenteros from the DL today.

We looked to win the rubber match with Mike Soroka (9-10, 3.22 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) facing Michael Wacha (7-8, 3.26 ERA, 1.16 WHIP). Soroka is 0-3 with a 6.00 ERA against the Mets this year, so let's hope that can change today. He was brilliant, and we won the finale 6-1.

Soroka tossed 5.1 scorless innings with 2 hits and 5 strikeouts. He also doubled, again. Ohtani tossed 2.2 innings with 3 hits, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. Kenyon Yovan pitched the 9th, allowing 2 hits and a run.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 3-for-4 with a two run homer, his 38th of the season. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a solo homer, his 41st of the year. With 2 more homers and 6 more RBI's for Vlad, we can have teammates with 40 or more homers with 100 or more RBI's. Beer has 41 and 105. Deshaw Hardamon was 2-for-3 with 2 runs scored. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI in his return from the DL. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored.

Ken Giles recored his 300th career save in a 3-1 Astros win over the Pirates. The 34-year-old has a career 2.89 ERA and 1.10 WHIP from 2014-2025 with the Phillies and Astros. From 2018-2020, he lead the league in saves.

We get tomorrow off, before the Giants come to town for three!

September 19th-September 25th

September 19th, 2025: I designated J.P. Gates for assignment, but could pull him back if he gets claimed.

We had today off, but the Giants would be in town tomorrow. We'd see Wes Hicks (8-9, 5.02 ERA), J.D. Busfield (3-4, 4.71 ERA), and Jonathan Hernandez (9-6, 3.87 ERA).

Quick look at the playoff outlook, we are 2.5 games behind the Braves and 2.5 games ahead of the Nationals. Our magic number is 7, and we have a 99.7% chance to make the playoffs. We also have the 2nd best record in baseball, and the top 3 our all in our division.

September 20th, 2025: The Oakland Athletics have been eliminated from the postseason today. At 69-81, they are 15 games out of first.

Former Giant Steve Paustian (8-5, 4.21 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) toed the rubber against Wes Hicks (8-9, 5.02 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) to open the series. We couldn't score, and were shut out 4-0.

Dylan Cease left with an injury, again...

Paustian went 5.2 innings with 8 hits, 4 runs, 4 walks, and 4 strikeouts. The pen combined for 3.1 innings wiht a hit, walk, and 6 strikeouts.

Seth Beer was 2-for-3 with a walk. Isaac Nune was 2-for-4. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 to finish our 5 hits.

Former Marlin Ryan Mountcastle was 5-for-5 in a 7-1 Pirates win over the Diamondbacks.

September 21st, 2025: Jake Florence (10-10, 3.66 ERA, 1.33 WHIP) got the ball in game two against J.D. Busfield (3-4, 4.71 ERA, 1.61 WHIP). We scored a trio of late runs and won 4-2.

Florence tossed 5 innings, allowing 4 hits, 2 runs, and he struck out 7. Alpha Quivers got the win, 1.2 innings with 2 hits and 4 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella and Chasen Shreve earned holds by pitching the 8th, and Jorge Moya tossed a scorless 9th for the save.

Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a solo homer. Florence himself was 1-for-1 with an RBI double. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with a run scored and RBI. Austin Hendrick had a pinch hit, RBI single in the 7th.

September 22nd, 2025: Gates cleared waivers and was outrighted to AA. Cease is fine, just minor abdominal soreness.

We dropped one spot to 2nd in the Power Rankings behind the Dodgers.

One win from 90, we looked to win the rubber match with Jordan Montgomery (0-1, 7.11 ERA, 2.21 WHIP) taking on Jonathan Hernandez (9-6, 3.87 ERA, 1.30 WHIP), who's appearing in his 80th game of the season (it will be his 6th start). Montgomery has teompararily dropped to a 3 star, but it's probably just minor fluctuation. I hope... We scored a pair of runs in three innings, and won the finale 6-2.

Monty looked like vintage Monty, 5.2 innings with 4 hits, a run, a walk, and 6 strikeouts to earn his first win of the year. Dinelson Lamet tossed 2 innings with 2 hits, a run, a walk, and 3 strikeouts.

Juan Ramirez was a perfect 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles, a homer, a walk, 2 runs, and 3 RBI's. He's hitting an impressive .380 with 11 homers and 39 RBI's, and will be an elite replacement for Ohtani if I can't re-sign him. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with 2 doubles and an RBI. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with 2 runs scored.

Up next is a crucial series in Atlanta where we'll play the Braves for four. We'll face Lucas Sims (6-10, 4.90 ERA), Ty Madden (10-5, 4.12 ERA), and Tyler Glasnow (!1-8, 4.19 ERA).

Septemebr 23rd, 2025: The 72-80 Texas Rangers were eliminated from the playoffs. They are 13.5 games behind Seattle, but made the playoffs the last two years.

We opened the series in Atlanta with Walker Buehler (8-6, 2.58 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) facing Lucas Sims (6-10, 4.90 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). It was pitiful, and they bested us 8-1 to extend their lead to 3 games.

Buehler allowed 5 (4 earned) with 6 hits and 8 strikeouts in 5.2 innings. Greg Walston got 1 out and walked a hitter who later scored. Marc Bjork also got jsut 1 out, allowing 2 hits, a walk, and he got a strikeout.

Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with an RBI double. He drove in Deshawn Hardamon, who was 0-for-2 with a run scored. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-3. We only had two hits...

September 24th, 2025: The Atlanta Braves have clinched a playoff spot, but the division is up for grabs. That does mean, however, that we are close to clinching!

Max Marusak has suffered a minor, 4 day setback.

We looked to even the series with Mike Soroka (10-10, 3.13 ERA, 1.12 WHIP) facing Tyler Glasnow (11-8, 4.19 ERA, 1.17 WHIP). Soroka is 0-2 with a 2.75 ERA against Atlanta, while Glasnow is 2-0 with a 2.79 ERA against us. Third time is a charm? I'd say yes, as we put up 7 in the 7-1 series evener.

Soroka was solid, 6 innings with 6 hits, 1 run, 2 strikeouts, and 3 walks. Luis Ardon got a rare 3 inning save. He was perfect and got a strikeout.

Juan Ramirez continues to mash, 2-for-5 with 2 doubles, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Austin Hedges was 2-for-5 with a run scored and 2 RBI's. He asked for an extension, but I don't have the money. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with 2 RBI's. Vlad Jr. was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored.

September 25th, 2025: The New York Yankees will not play in the postseason this year. At 75-79, they are 10.5 games behind the Rays. The Yanks have not made the postseason since 2020, and have only had a winning record once since.

We looked to climb withing 1 of first and possibly clinch a playoff birth with Steve Paustian (8-6, 4.28 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) taking on Ty Madden (10-5, 4.12 ERA, 1.39 WHIP). It was a nail biter, but Chi-seong Pak hit a walk off homer off Jorge Moya as the Braves won 2-1.

Paustian was great, 7 innings with 2 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Moya tossed 1.2 innings with 2 hits, a walk, a run, and 2 strikeouts. I wish Boone pitched someone else in the 8th...

Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with his 42nd homer of the year. Jr. was 2-for-3 with a walk. Lazaro Armenteros had out last hit, and was 1-for-4.

Reds 2B Shedric Long launced 3 homers ina 12-3 win over the Pirates.

We're off to Chicago for three against the first place Cubs in our last road series of the year. We'll see Florencio Serrano (7-13, 5.03 ERA), Ricardo Sanchez (7-9, 3.99 ERA), and Carlos Salazar (6-5, 3.39 ERA). Our magic number is just 2, but I want to win the division!

September 26th-October 2nd

September 26th, 2025: The Dodgres clinched the NL West today. At 89-67, they have a 6.5 game lead over Arizona, and will return to the playoffs. Since 2013, they've made the playoffs every time except 2022 and 2023.

We started the final road series of the year at Wrigley Field, with Jake Florence (10-10, 3.66 ERA, 1.31 WHIP) taking on Ricardo Sanchez (7-9, 3.99 ERA, 1.26 WHIP). We got 3 insurance runs in the 9th to win the first of three 6-1.

Florence piched well, 6 innings wiht 7 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Enresto Estrella, Chasen Shreve, and Hyo-Jin Yaung got holds before we ran away with the game. Dylan Cease struck out the side in the 9th.

Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a sac-fly and two run homer. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a walk, 2 runs, a solo homer, and a double. Cole Roederer was 2-for-4 with a double, run scored, and 2 RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5.

September 27th, 2025: Indians righty Cole Wilcox tore his labrum and may miss the start of next year. He was 8-10 with a 4.81 ERA in 32 starts.

We officially can defend our title, and will head to the postseason for the fifth straight season. We sit three games behind the Braves, but have a 4 game lead for homefield in the Wild Card game.

We need to keep winning, and Jordan Montgomery (1-1, 5.40 ERA, 1.80 WHIP) took on Florencio Serrano (7-13, 5.03 ERA, 1.32 WHIP). It was a close one, but we edged them 4-2.

Montgomery went just 4.1 innings, allowign 4 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), 2 walks, and he struck out 5. Shoehi Ohtani tossed 2.1 innings with 5 strikeouts to get the win. Estrella and Yaung got holds before Jorge Moya got his 35th save of the year.

Jake Taylor got his first hit of his career, and was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a two rnu homer. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with a solo homer. Both guys did make errors though.

September 28th, 2025: Max Marusak re-joined the roster as we looked to finish the road sweep with Walker Buehler (8-7, 2.72 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) taking on Carlos Salazar (6-5, 3.39 ERA, 1.36 WHIP). The Cubs got three in the 8th and we had to put the brooms away in a 4-2 loss.

Buehler went 7, allowing 2 hits, a run, and he struck out 6. For some reason, Moya came in during the 8th, and allowed 3 runs off 2 hits and 2 walks while recording just 2 outs (strikeout and ground out).

Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with a double, steal, walk, and run scored. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a walk and RBI.

We finish the season with a four game series at home against the Reds. We'd see Bobby Stiles (7-14, 4.89 ERA), Dennis Santana (7-12, 4.45 ERA), Zach Davies (8-8, 4.37 ERA), and Alan Taylor (4-8, 4.93 ERA).

September 29th, 2025: I designated Max Marusak for assignment to make room for Luis Delgado, who was activated from the 60 Day DL. He came over in the trade with the Mets.

We dropped to 5th in the Power Rankings, despite our 93-65 record.

The Seattle Mariners clinched the AL West today. At 88-71, they have a 4 game lead over the Astros and will represent the West for the second straight year.

The Tigers and Padres made a late season trade. The Padres sent RHP's Felix Jorge and Jim Anderson to the Tigers for LF Rodolfo Andrafe and RF Judson Fabian. I like this deal for the Padres.

The opener saw Mike Soroka (11-10, 3.07 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) duel Bobby Stiles (7-14, 4.89 ERA, 1.55 WHIP), although we basically need to win every game to even have a chance to win the division. Chances are, this series will be rather meaningless. They edged us 3-2, and that's not the start we needed.

Soroka went 5, allowing 8 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and he struck out 3. The rest of the pen pitched 4 innings, with 3 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts.

Juan Ramriez was 2-for-4 with a double, triple, and RBI. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a walk and RBI. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a steal and run scored.

September 30th, 2025: Blue Jays righty Arturo Lara is having surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow, and he may miss the start of next year. The former 16th Rounder was 1-0 with a 3.07 ERA in 14.2 innings.

The Minnesota Twins have clinched a playoff spot. At 91-63, they have a 3 game lead over the Royals. This is their 4th consecutive season with a playoff birth.

The Houston Astros, however, were not as lucky, and they were eliminated from postseason contention. At 84-75, they are 4 games behind the Mariners. This is their 2nd straight year missing the playoffs, after they made it every year from 2017-2023.

And sadly, the Braves clinched the division. At 97-62, they have a 4 game lead over us. I might have to play them in the NLDS too...

I wanted to win enough to have the 2nd best record in baseball, and Steve Paustian (8-6, 4.16 ERA, 1.47 WHIP) took on Dennis Santana (7-12, 4.45 ERA, 1.21 WHIP). We crushed them, scoring 6 in the 6th in a 10-4 rout.

Paustian tossed 5 innings, allowing 4 hits, 3 runs, 4 walks, and he struck out 6. Greg Walston got the win with a perfect 6th inning. A.J. Labas got a 3 inning save, allowing 2 hits, a run, a walk, and a strikeout.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a solo homer and 3 total runs. Lazaro Armenteros was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and 2 doubles. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Devante Brown was 2-for-3 with a hit by pitch, 2 runs, and 3 RBI's. Seth Beer was 2-for-3 with a pair of walks and an RBI. Shoehi Ohtnai was 1-for-4 with a run scored and steal.

October 1st, 2025: Nationals lefty Jerrod Eaddy will miss at least the beginning og 2026, as he fracture his elbow. He was 2-1 with a 3.94 ERA in 16 innings.

Lots of playoff news: The Rays clinched the East, the Twins the Central, the Cubs the Central, and the Brewers were eliminated. All these teams have a worse record then me...

With a win here, or a Twins loss, we will have clinched the 2nd best record in all of baseball, good for 2nd place in the NL East...

Jake Florence (11-10, 3.58 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) battled Zach Davies (8-8, 4.37 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) in game 151. It was a close one, but they edges us 3-2.

Florence went 6, allowing 4 hts, 2 runs, a walk, and he struck out 8. Moya got the loss, allowing a solo shot in the 9th, dropping to 3-10 on the year. He's awful in non-save situations...

Vlad Jr. was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. He got his 40th homer, but needs 4 RBI's to get 100 on the year. Shoehi Ohani was 2-for-3 with a solo homer and a walk.

The Twins lost too, but I didn't realize the Dodgers have 93 wins, so they could tie me. Dang it...

October 2nd, 2025: I outrighted Max Marusak to AAA.

We finished the season with Jordan Montgomery (1-1, 4.76 ERA, 1.72 WHIP) taking on Alan Taylor (4-8, 4.93 ERA, 1.59 WHIP). Jr. isn't in the lineup, so unless a pinch hit grand slam is in the cards, he won't reach 100. We also didn't score 4, and lost the last game of the regular season 3-2. The Reds beat us three out of four, at home...

Oh yeah, and Montgomery (back to 3.5) left with a mild calf strain, but he should be fine for the playoffs. He went 3.1 innings with a hit, walk, and 3 strikeouts.

Kenyon Yovan got the loss, 1.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. Dylan Cease tossed 1.2 innings with 2 hits, a run, a walk, and a strikeout. Chasen Shreve struck out the side in the 9th.

Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a double and run scored. Juan Ramirez and Seth Beer were both 1-for-4 with doubles. Caleb Balgaard was 1-for-2 with a run scored and base on balls.

The Dodgres won, so we are tied for the 2nd best record in baseball. And we have to play a play in game...

Phillies 1B Xavier Carter launced a three run homer ina 6-5 win over the Rockies.

Well, at least we made it! We'll face the Mets in the Wild Card game!

Wild Card Game and Divisional Series

October 4th, 2025: The playoffs officially start today, but we have a three way tie for the two Wild Card spots between Kansas City, Detroit, and Baltimore.

Baltimore and Detroit played today, with Justin Dunn (10-11, 4.29 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) facing Michael Fulmer (9-13, 5.08 ERA, 1.39 WHIP). The defneding AL champs looks like the far better team, but anything could happen. Including a 1-0 shutout as the Tigers snuck past Baltimore. So that means Detroit and Kansas City will be the Wild Cards (not sure why the Royals didn't need to play...).

October 5th, 2025: Ha, just kidding! The Orioles and Cody Sedlock (9-8, 4.71 ERA, 1.37 WHIP) will face the Royals and former Marlin Nick Neidert (6-1, 2.56 ERA, 1.04 WHIP). With a chance at redemption, the Orioles got blown out 11-3.

Now, I think we can start the real playoffs.

October 6th, 2025: So the 2025 regular season is officially over, and teams will now begin to set their playoff rosters.

October 7th, 2025: The Tigers faced the Royals in the AL Wild Card game. Scott Kingery was player of the game as the Tigers edged the Royals 3-1. They'll play the Rays in the ALDS.

We're up next!

October 8th, 2025: Our whole season hangs in the balance of one game. Can we defend our title? Walker Buehler (8-7, 2.66 ERA, 1.03 WHIP) took on Noah Syndergaard (12-15, 3.15 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) as we hosted the division rival Mets. Thor is 1-3 against us this year, Buehler is 3-1 against them. We need this win! We got 6 in the 7th and shut the Mets down 8-0. Not going to lie, I got hyped, clapped my hands, and gave my brother a hi five.

Annnnnnnndddddddddddd then I found out Buehler has a sore shoulder and will miss the rest of the playoffs. Yay...

He went 5.1 innings with 3 hits, 3 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Greg Walston got the win and Alpha Quivers got a hold. Mike Soroka tossed 2 innings out of the pen with 3 hits and 4 strikeouts.

Lazaro Armenteros was 3-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a double. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-2 with a run, RBI, 2 walks, and a double. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, double, and hit by pitch. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a run scored and RBI. Cole Roederer came off the bench for Buehler (who doubled in his only at bat) and was 2-for-3 with 2 runs and an RBI.

Well, we won, and will face the only team with a better record then us, the Braves...

October 9th, 2025: The ALDS starts today! The Tigers rode their momentum with a 10-0 domination of the host Rays. The Twins walked off the Mariners, winning 5-4 when Jeremy Arocho hit a sac-fly.

October 10th, 2025: It was announced that New Orleans 1B Ashton McGee was named Pacific Coast League MVP. He hit .305/.415/.550 with 27 homers and 86 RBI's in 134 games with the Baby Cakes.

We started the NLDS with Jake Florence (11-10, 3.56 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) taking on Lucas Sims (8-10, 4.65 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) at SunTrust Park. I'd like to eliminate the Braves for a second straight year. We got 6 in the 7th today, and took a commanding 1-0 lead with an 11-3 win.

Florence went 6, allowing 6 hits, a run, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. Jorge Moya allowed 2 runs in the 9th with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts. Not sure why he's pitching an 11-1 game...

Vlad Jr. was a monster, 5-for-6 with 2 runs, 3 RBI's, and a homer. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a steal, double, and homer. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-2 with 2 runs, a walk, RBI, and two steals. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a walk, RBI, double, and run scored. LazarO Armenteros was 2-for-5 with a walk and 2 runs scored.

In other playoff news, the Cubs beat the Host Dodgers 6-2. They got 4 in the 9th and LA got 2. The Rays and Mariners both evened the series at 1. The Rays bested the Tigers 5-2, and the Mariners scored 6 in the 1st to cruise to a 10-4 win.

October 11th, 2025: With the AL having the day off, Jordan Montgomery (1-1, 4.15 ERA, 1.58 WHIP) took on Ty Madden (!1-5, 3.91 ERA, 1.34 WHIP). The Braves bounced back, and edged us 3-1 to tie the series before it heads to Miami.

Monty allowed 3 in 4 innings with 4 hits and 3 strikeouts. Slade Cecconi struck out 5 of the 6 hitters he faced today.

We had just 2 hits. Vlad was 1-for-3 with a walk, run scored, and steal. Issac Nunez was 1-for-3. Juan Ramirez hit a sac fly in the 4th for the only run.

The Dodgers also evened the series, winning 5-3. All four series are tied right now.

October 12th, 2025: The NL got the day off and the AL had to play. The Tigers shut the Rays out 3-0 to take a 2-1 lead at home. The Twins got 8 on the Mariners and took one on the road 8-2

October 13th, 2025: Here's a crazy one, Joey Gallo has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis. It's an interesting storyline to follow.

We were back home with Steve Paustian (8-6, 4.20 ERA, 1.47 WHIP) taking on Tyler Glasnow (11-9, 4.42 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) as we looked to take the series lead back. The Braves got 3 in the 5th and won 5-2 to take a 2-1 lead. Great...

Paustian allowed all 5 in 4 innings off 2 hits, 7 walks, and 2 strikeouts. The pen tossed 5 innings with 3 hits, 5 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Quivers walked 3 and struck out 3 in the 5th.

Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a double and walk. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a run scored, walk, and RBI.

The host Cubs took a 2-1 lead with a 4-43 win. The Mariners and Rays both tied the series at two. Tampa topped Detroit 9-1 and Seattle topped the Twins 8-2.

October 14th, 2025: We looked to avoid elimination with Mike Soroka (11-11, 3.09 ERA, 1.15 WHIP: 0-0, 0.00 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) taking on Zach Attianese (7-3, 2.53 ERA, 1.30 WHIP). Soroka ended the Braves season last year, and helped keep ours alive this year. We crushed the Braves 11-1 to force a game five back in Atlanta.

Soroka tossed 7 quality innings, with 6 hits, a run, walk, and 2 strikeouts. Moya tossed the last 2 innings with a walk and strikeout.

Deshawn Hardamon was 4-for-5 with 4 runs, an RBI, a double, and steal. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 3-for-4 with a run scored, 2 RBI's, a steal, hit by pitch, and homer. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a walk, solo homer, and 2 runs scored. Lazaro Armenteros was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a double.

The Dodgers evened the series with a 6-4 win, and again, all four series are tied.

October 15th, 2025: Tampa topped the Tigers 8-1 and will face Seattle, who beat the Twins 8-2.

October 16th, 2025: This is it, one team will go home in a game 1 rematch between Jake Florence (11-10, 3.56 ERA, 1.30 WHIP: 1-0, 1.50 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) taking on Lucas Sims (8-10, 4.65 ERA, 1.28 WHIP: 0-1, 15.43 ERA, 3.00 WHIP). We scored 3 in the 8th and 1 in the 9th to take a 5-4 lead. Connor Capel hit a RBI double in the bottom of the 9th to tie it, and Johnny Houghtby hit a walk off single off Hyo-jin Yaung, as the Braves knocked us off to advance to the NLCS.

Florence allowed 4 in 4.1 innings with 4 hits, walks, and stirkouets. Moya got the loss, 1.1 innings with 3 hits and 2 runs. I hate the 2 inning save... Well, at least using the closer in the 8th, since it technically wasn't a save opportunity when he entered.

Thomas Dillard was 3-for-4 with a solo shot and 2 runs scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Lazaro Armenteros was 1-for-4 with a walk and solo homer. Shoehi Ohtani was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI.

The Braves would face the Cubs, who beat the Dodgers 6-3 in the finale.

I'll finish the playoffs next after a little mourning...

Championship Series and World Series

October 17th, 2025: Even though I am upset about the result, I do have to finish playing out the playoffs so I can win next year. The ACLS starts today with the Rays hosting Seattle. Tampa defended homefield with a 5-2 opening victory.

October 18th, 2025: The NLCS kicked off today with the Braves hosting the Cubs. Tyler Glasnow and the pen shut the Cubs out 5-0 as the Braves looked untouchable in the opener. The Mariners were able to even up the series as former Marlin Mitchell White and the npen shut the Rays out 9-0 in a more dominant win. Janisel Rivera was 3-for-3 with 2 homers, a double, 3 RBI's, 3 runs, and 2 walks.

October 19th, 2025: Looking to go up 2-0, Zach Attianese made a solid start, tossing 6 innings and allowing just 1 run in a 5-3 win. Ronald Acuna was 1-for-2 with a three run homer, walk, and 2 runs scored. In a losing effort, Mac Horvath was 2-for-3 with a double, RBI, run, and walk.

October 20th, 2025: I claimed 1B Jovan Gill off waivers, and hoped no one was paying attention so I could sneak him back through. The former 6th Rounder is rated a 1/3 and can play first, third, left, and right. He's got great speed, an elite eye, and a decent enough bat.

With the series in Seattle, the Rays offense showed up today, and they crushed the Mariners 10-3. Freudis Nova was 4-for-5 and a triple away from the cycle with 4 RBI's, 2 runs, and a walk. M's Paul Goldschmidt was 2-for-3 with a homer, 2 RBI's, 2 runs, and a walk. Rays starter Jacob Faria tossed 5 innings with 4 hits, a run, walk, and 5 strikeotus in the winning effort.

October 21st, 2025: The NLCS started back up, and the hometown Cubs survived a late inning rally and edged the Cubs 4-3. Jorge Flores tossed 7 innings with 4 hits, a run, 4 walks, and 4 strikeouts in the win.



The Mariners and Rays had a pitcher's duel, but Seattle walked off in a three run 9th to win 4-3. With the bases loaded, Carlos Leandro walked Reese McGuire to end the game. Both starters pitched well, with Chris Sale allowing just 1 run in 7 innnings with 5 hits, a walk, and a strikeout. Former Marlin Joe LaBrie tossed 7 innings for Seattle, allowing 7 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. Three of their four starters used to pitch for me.

October 22nd, 2025: The Cubs tied up the series in a 5-3 win. German Marquez went 7.1 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 4 strikeouts to earn the win.

The Rays edged the Mariners 3-2, and will head home with a 3-2 lead. Travis Swaggerty was a perfect 3-for-3 with a solo homer and walk in the win. Brendan McKay went 7 innings, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and he struck out 5 to get the win. Janisel Rivera was 2-for-2 with a two run homer and walk in the losing effort.

October 23rd, 2025: In a series that the home team won every game, the Cubs took a commanding 3-2 lead with a 9-2 win as the series heads back to Atlanta. Kris Bryant was 2-for-4 with 2 homers, 3 RBI's, and 2 runs. Florencio Serrano got the win, going 7 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Anthony Rizzo was 2-for-2 with a solo homer, walk, and 2 runs scored.

October 24th, 2025: The Rays could clinch a spot to the World Series, and clinch they did, with a 4-2 victory. Matt Wallner was 2-for-4 with 2 solo shots. Mitchell White pitched well in the loss, 6.1 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Mariners Kole Enright was 2-for-3 with an RBI and walk in the loss.

October 25th, 2025: The Cubs could meet Tampa in the World Series, but they'd have to beat the Braves in Atlanta. Daniel Hernandez hit a walk off single off Graeme Stinson and the Braves won 4-3. Ronald Acuna was 4-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and 3 runs scored. Attianese went 6 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Hernandez was 2-for-4 with a double and three RBI's.

Game 7 saw Lucas Sims duel Jorge Flores. Atlatna is 5-1 at home, the Cubs 2-4 on the road. Flores was unhittable, and the Cubs shut the Braves out 6-0 to punch their ticket to the World Series. Unhittable may be an overstatement, with Flroes tossing 8 shutout innings with 8 hits, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts. Kris Bryant was 1-for-4 with a three run homer and walk. Anthony Rendon was 1-for-3 with a solo homer and walk.

October 27th, 2025: I kind of forgot about Gill, but I was able to outright him to AAA.

October 28th, 2025: The Rays hosted the 2025 World Series, and took a 1-0 lead with a 7-2 win. Faria tossed 6 innings with 2 hits, a run, and 11 strikeouts. Joe McCarthy was 2-for-2 with a two run homer. Freudis Nova was 2-for-4 with a two run homer.

October 29th, 2025: I needed to make room for Mickey Moniak, so I DFA'd Caleb Balgaard.

The Rays took a commanding 2-0 lead with a 9-1 win, while scoring 7 in the 7th. Despite the Cubs being against the wall, this is how they started the NLCS. Brendan McKay went 6 innings with 3 hits, a run, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. The Cubs Florencio Serrano went 6 innings as well, with 6 hits, 2 runs, and 5 strikeouts. Freudis Nova was 3-for-5 with 3 RBI's and a run scored.

October 31st, 2025: The Cubs were back home and had their best pitcher Jorge Flores, who was 4-0 with a 0.64 ERA in the postseason. They were down 3-2 heading into the 9th, before Kris Bryant hit a solo homer to tie the game. In the 11th, Freudis Nova hit an RBI single to give the Rays a 4-3 lead that they would keep, and are 1 game away from a sweep. Travis Swaggerty was 3-for-4 and a triple away from the cycle with 2 RBI's, 2 runs, and 2 walks. Dallas Woolfolk tossed 6 innings with 2 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 8 strikeouts. Kris Bryant was 2-for-4 with 2 homers, 2 RBI's, 2 runs, and a walk.

November 1st, 2025: The Cubs never had a chance, and Tampa swept them with a 8-4 win. I would've represented the NL much better... Nova, who's been great all postseason, was 2-for-5 with a homer, 5 RBI's, 2 runs, and a walk. Anthony Rendon was 2-for-3 with a double, homer, 2 RBI's, run, and walk in the losing effort. J.P. Crawford was 3-for-5 with a solo homer and 2 runs scored.

I outrighted Balgaard to AAA, and we'll start the offseason tomorrow!
