All-Star Break

This will be a really short post just covering the All-Star break:

July 10th, 2026: I signed the one International Free Agent I really liked to a max deal of $6.6 million. CF Juan "Tank" Toledo is a Venezuelan who's overall skill potential mirrors Juan Ramirez when I signed him as an Amateur Free Agent. A 5*, he has plus-plus contact and gap power, along with 100 power potential, and a solid eye and avoid strikeout ability. He's got decent foot speed and solid range to stick in center, but he's likely never going to be the best defender. Other players look up to him, and he definitely looks like a future star.

July 11th, 2026: Today is the All-Star game! The NL sent Cubs pitcher Jorge Flores (5-5, 2.38 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) to the mound against Brendan McKay (8-2, 3.36 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) of the Rays. There are a lot of under 4 stars in the lineup today. The NL All-Star team really isn't that much better then my team based purley off ratings.

It was a tight one, but the AL All-Stars edged the NL team 3-2. Jake Florence didn't pitch, but Alpha Quivers pitched the 9th inning. He allowed a hit and got a strikeout. Angels C C.J. Willis was named MVP, 1-for-3 with a two run homer.

July 12th, 2026: I worked on a few trades today, but nothing really materialized. I still have one more day before the break ends.

July 13th, 2026: We remaiend 3rd in the Power Rankings at 53-35.

What's nice is we get to stay home against the Dodgers to start part two of the season. We'll see Walker Buehler (6-6, 3.73 ERA), Kevin Jalbert (6-4, 3.86 ERA), and Robinson Ortiz (3-7, 6.59 ERA).

July 14th-July 19th

July 14th, 2026: The Rays have acquired RHP Chris Archer from the Mariners for C Zachary Jackson and RHP Esteban Miranda. Archer last played with the Rays in 2021, and at 37, will return to the team he debuted with. They paid a pretty big price for him, and I like this deal for Dipoto and the Mariners.

The Angels sent SS Livan Soto to the Pirates for RHP Chris Green and RHP Ben Grayson. I like this deal for both teams.

We opened the second half of the season with Jake Florence (5-2, 3.23 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) facing his old teammate and friend Walkler Buehler (6-6, 3.73 ERA, 1.07 WHIP). We gave him a nice welcome back in his return to Marlins Park, although he beat us earlier in the year in LA. It was a cloe one, but the Dodgers edged us 2-1 to start the second half of the season.

Florence pitched well, 6 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and 3 strike outs. The pen pitched 3 innings with a hit and 2 strike outs.

Juan Ramirez was 2-for-3 with a RBI and walk. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. and Seth Beer were both 1-for-4 with a double. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a walk.

July 15th, 2026: The Red Sox will be without RHP Carter Capps for the rest of the year with a stretched elbow ligament. THe 35-year-old veteran was 1-3 with a 8.17 ERA in 25.1 innings with 20 strikeouts.

I agreed to a swap of my own, sending impending free agent RF Lazaro Armenteros and LHP Juan Rosales to the Nationals for 3B Shemar McClennon and RHP Josh Nix. This was a salary move, to free up a little space if I need an upgrade, and since Armenteros would likely not demand enough to decline a qualifying offer.

McClennon, 21, is a 2.5* potential infielder with a solid bat and decent glove. The former 19th Round Pick was released by Seattle on draft day before catching on with the White Sox, and then the Nationals after being releaseds again.

Nix, 23, is a 2.5* relief pitcher who has the stamina to toss a few innings at a time out of the pen, with a plus-plus cutter that can hit the upper 90s. The former 2nd Round Pick out of Long Beach State, the Nats youngster has had a solid start to the year in A- Auburn.

We looked to even up the series with Devon Peterson (7-3, 3.98 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) facing Kevin Jalbert (6-4, 3.86 ERA, 1.14 WHIP). We got a run in the first, but that was it, in a 1-0 shutout where the Dodgers only had 1 hit.

Vladdy left with a foot contusion, and will head to the DL for 2 weeks.

Peterson went 7, allowing just a hit and walk with 7 strikeouts. Sashiro Onuma and Hyo-jin Yaung earned holds in the 8th before Alpha Quivers tossed a perfect 9th to earn his 28th save.

Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with an RBI double. He drove in Jon Reid, who pinch ran for Junior after he got hit by a pitch to start the game. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a double. Peterson the pitcher was 1-for-3.

July 16th, 2026: I recalled 3B Roberto Pena from AAA. The 27-year-old will be set to make his major league debut. The former Arizona 4th Round pick was claimed off waivers by us back in 2023, and has been with the organization ever since.

We looked to win the series with Steve Paustian (5-6, 4.92 ERA, 1.51 WHIP) facing Mike Clevinger (3-5, 4.22 ERA, 1.35 WHIP). Pena will hit 8th and play 3B in his major league debut. He recored his first career hit in a 4-3 win.

Paustian went 6 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, 4 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Jorge Moya tossed an inning with 2 hits, a run, walk, and 3 strikeouts. Yaung got the win and Quivers the save. Both Moya and Quivers struck out the side.

Juan Ramirez was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, a walk, and a double. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, double, and walk. Cole Roedeer had a pinch hit RBI double in the 7th. Pena was 1-for-3 with a run scored and stolen base.

Yankees SP Eric Armstrong tossed a 5-hitter in an 11-0 win over the rival Red Sox.

The Phillies come to town for three, as we are now tied with them for first place. We'll see Mr. Perfection Jim Gilbert (8-0, 2.87 ERA), Jonathan Childress (1-1, 4.30 ERA), and Steve Fettig (10-4, 3.39 ERA).

July 17th, 2026: We looked to open the series with the Phillies with a win, as Jordan Montgomery (8-3, 3.22 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) took on Jim Gilbet (8-0, 2.87 ERA, 0.94 WHIP). Tied at two, we got a run in the 8th to take a 3-2 lead. In the 9th, former Marlin Adam Haseley hit a RBI single off Ernesto Estrella to tie the game up. With no outs in the bottom of the 9th, Roberto Pena hit a walk off single to score pinch runner Jon Reid as we took the opener and first place with a 4-3 win.

Montgomery pitched well, 6 innings with 5 hits, 2 runs (1 earned) and 4 strike outs. Yaung allowed a run in 0.1 innings with a walk and strike out. Esterlla blew the save, 0.2 innings with a hit and walk, but he got the win.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with a double, steal, run scored, and 2 RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a double and RBI. Pena was 1-for-4 with the game winning RBI single. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4.

Brewers RF Monte Harrison has a 20 game hit streak after a 2 hit game in a 7-6 loss to the Pirates.

July 18th, 2026: The Rays will be without LHP Carlos Leandro for the year with a torn meniscus. He was 4-3 with a 4.93 ERA in 42 innings.

The Brewers traded 1B Braden Shewkame to the Rangers for RHP Charlie Neeper. It's an even enough trade.

We looked to extend our lead with Mike Soroka (4-5, 4.23 ERA, 1.38 WHIP) facing Jonathan Childress (1-1, 4.30 ERA, 1.50 WHIP). It was an overall beautiful game, and we shut them out 7-0.

Soroka almost went the distance, 8.2 shutout innings with 5 hits, a walk, and 3 sttrikeouts. Ben Popkin needed just 1 pitch to get a fly out to end the game.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with a homer, triple, and 2 RBI's. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a hit by pitch, and three RBI's. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, an RBI, and a steal. Soroka was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a walk and a pair of stolen bases.

Harrison's hit streak is already snapped, as he went 0-for-5 in a 6-5 win over the Pirates.

Padres 1B Matt Olson hit his 400th career hoemr in his 1,431st career game. He's a career .244/.341/.527 hitter with 990 RBI's in 5,251 at bats with Oakland and San Diego.

July 19th, 2026: We looked to finish the sweep with Jake Florence (5-3, 3.21 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) taking on Steve Fettig (10-4, 3.39 ERA, 0.98 WHIP). We tried a late inning comeback, but they held us off with a 5-4 win to salvage the finale.

Florence lasted just 2.1 innings with 7 hits, 3 runs, and 3 strikeoiuts. Danny Niewald went 2.1 innings with a hit, 2 runs, a walk, and 2 strikeouts. The rest of the pen combined for 4.1 innings with 4 hits, 4 walks, and 6 strike outs.

Juan Ramirez was 3-for-4 with an RBI. Seth Beer was 2-for-4. Jordy Barley was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Jhon Solarte was 1-for-4 with a run scored and steal. Roberto Pena was 1-for-3 with a double, run scored, and sac-bunt. Dewitt MacGregor was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

We couldn't pull off the sweep, but first place is still ours. Tomorrow is a day off as we'll travel to Cincinnati to face the Reds!

July 20th-July 26th

July 20th, 2026: at 57-37, the Power Rankings bumped us to 2nd, with just Tampa ahead of us.

The Dodgres acquired RF/P Shoehi Ohtani and 1B Braedon Oake from the Red Sox for C Will D. Smith and RHP Art Lukens. I like this deal for LA.

I optioned Sanshiro Onuma to AAA to recall Brennan Malone from his rehab assingment. Onuma didn't do anything wrong, but I couldn't option anyone else.

Mariners SP Sergio Barreto tossed a 3-hit shutout in a 9-0 win over the Yankees.

In Cincy, we'll see Bobby Stiles (4-6, 4.57 ERA), Steve Hayes (4-3, 2.71 ERA), and Cristian Sanchez (1-6, 4.38 ERA).

July 21st, 2026: Well, I guess we won't see Stiles, as the Reds shipped him to the Phillies for RHP's Hank Bearden and Tim Meszaros. I like this deal for the Reds.

San Diego acquired LHP Zach Britton and RHP Juan Quintana from the Red Sox for 1B Joe Naranjo. I absolutely love this deal for the Padres.

The opener saw Devon Peterson (8-3, 3.71 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) take on Chrisitan Sanchez (1-6, 4.38 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). We got four quick runs to take the opener 10-5.

Peterson didn't pitch too well, 4.2 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Ben Popkin finished the 5th and got the win, his 6th of the year. Ignacio Hinojos allowed 2 runs in off two hits with just 1 strikeout.

Jarred Kelenic was 3-for-5 with a homer, double, and 2 runs scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 3-for-5 with a double and two run homer. Seth Beer was 2-for-5 with a two run homer. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a walk, and sac-fly. Jordy Barley had a pinch hit two run homer in the 8th. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-3 with 2 runs scored and 2 walks.

July 22nd, 2026: Game two saw Steve Paustian (5-6, 4.78 ERA, 1.48 WHIP) face Steve Hayes (4-3, 2.71 ERA, 1.30 WHIP). There was a lot less scoring today, but we still came out on top, winners of a 3-1 competition.

Paustian went 6.1 innings with 4 hits, a run, a walk, and 7 strikeouts to even his record at 6-6. Jorge Moya and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds while Alpha Quivers got the save.

Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a double, solo homer, and hit by pitch. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with a two run homer. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with 2 walks.

July 23rd, 2026: The Mariners sent 3B Kole Enright to the Giants for RHP Yonny Chirinos and RHP Ben Rider. Another great trade for Seattle.

We looked to finish the road sweep with Jordan Montgomery (8-3, 3.09 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) facing rookie and #1 overall prospect Esteban Aguirre (4-4, 4.76 ERA, 1.47 WHIP) who is going to be an absolute stud. Monty showed him his veteran presense, as we finished the sweep wtih a 4-0 shutout.

Montgomery tossed 6 shut out innings with 3 hits, walks, and strikeouts. Ignacio Hinojos got a hold, 2 innings with a walk and 3 strikeouts.

Isaac Nunez was 3-for-4 with an RBI. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a double, walk, run scored, and RBI. Jhon Solarte was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with 2 walks and a run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with an RBI double.

Our road trip continues and finishes in Arlington with a three game series against the Rangers. We'll see Tyler Glasnow (9-6, 5.23 ERA), Dan Scott (3-3, 7.62 ERA), and Ryan Dease (8-7, 4.47 ERA).

July 24th, 2026: The Athletics will be without LF Nicholas Schnell for the year with a broken kneecap. The former Angels 2nd Rounder was hitting .271 with 10 homers and 37 RBI's.

We opened the series at Globe Life Park with Mike Soroka (5-5, 3.88 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) facing Tyler Glasnow (9-6, 5.23 ERA, 1.41 WHIP). The Rangers ended our little win streak, and took the opener 5-2.

Soroka allowed 5 in 3.1 innings off 7 hits with 3 strikeouts. Brennan Malone pitched 2.2 innings with a hit and 4 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella walked 3 in the ninth, but managed to escape without allowing a run.

Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a walk and solo homer. Jon Reid was 2-for-3 with a double. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

July 25th, 2026: The Cardinals will be without SP Arlinthon De Dios for the rest of the year with a torn labrum. He was 1-4 with a 5.20 ERA in 7 starts this year.

We looked to even the series with Jake Florence (5-4, 3.41 ERA, 1.50 WHIP) taking on Dan Scott (3-3, 7.62 ERA, 2.19 WHIP), a rookie who looks like a future star, eventually. Or maybe today, as they beat us 6-1.

Ben Popkin left with an injury...

Florence had a rough outing, 5 innings with 5 hits, 6 runs (4 earned), 4 walks, and 4 strike outs. Brennan Malone tossed 2.1 innings with a hit and a walk and has looked much better since coming off the DL. Jarred Kelenic was 0-for-2, but score the only run, walked twice, and got a steal. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-3 with a walk and our only hit, a single.

Cardinals CF Tyler Kehoe hit for the cycle in a 5-4 win over the Rockies. I tryed claiming him off waivers earlier in the season, but the Cardinals got the 25-year-old instead. He's hitting .333/.369/.491 with 3 homers, 17 RBI's, and 8 steals in 59 games (36 starts) this year.

July 26th, 2026: The Pirates will be without Mitch Keller for the rest of this year and most of, if not all, of next year with a torn UCL. He was 6-10 with a 4.19 ERA in 21 starts.

After that performance with St. Louis, the Yankees had to acquire him, traiding RHP Eric Armstron to the Cards for CF Tyler Kehoe. I do like this deal for both teams.

Devon Peterson (8-3, 3.80 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) returned to Texas for the first time, and took on former teammate Ryan Dease (8-7, 4.47 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) as we looked to avoid the sweep and maintain our 1 game division lead. The Rangers offense pounded us, and they finished the sweep with a 9-3 win.

Peterson went 4, allowing 6 runs off 4 hits and 3 walks with 3 strikeouts. Hinojos went 1.1 innings with 3 hits, a run, walk, and 2 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella went 1.1 innings with a hit, run, and strikeout. Hyo-jin Yaung allowed a run off a hit and walk with 3 strikeouts in 1.1 innings.

Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-3 with a walk, double, and solo homer. Roberto Pena was 1-for-4 with a triple.

Former Marlin, 1B Ryan Mountcastle was 5-for-5 in a 5-0 Pirates win over the Giants.

The Phillies won, so they tied us in first as he head back home to face the Red. We'll see them for four games, facing Steve Hayes (4-4, 2.77 ERA), Esteban Aguirre (4-5, 4.83 ERA), Alan Taylor (1-6, 3.61 ERA), and Christian Sanchez (1-7, 4.67 ERA) before the trade deadline.

July 27th-August 2nd

July 27th, 2026: We fell to third in the Power Rankings, but are tied in first with a 60-40 record.

The Twins acquired LHP Wandy Peralta and RHP Jorge Campos from the Rangers for 1B Danny Contreras. I really like this deal for the Twins.

We started the four game set back at home with Steve Paustian (6-6, 4.53 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) facing Steve Hayes (4-4, 2.77 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). Just a few games ago, this same matchup happened, with Hayes losing and Paustian winning. It was close, but we edged them 7-5 to win the opener.

Paustian went 5 innings with 4 hits, 4 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Jorge Moya got the win, Danny Niewald the hold, and Alpha Quivers the save. Quivers did, however, allow a run in the 9th with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts.

Juan Ramirez was 3-for-5 with a double and 2 runs scored. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a walk. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a run scored, walk, and steal. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a three run homer and walk. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a double and walk. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a double.

July 28th, 2026: A little injury news: Ben Popkin is headed to the 60-Day DL with a strained forearm. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. will begin a rehab assignment in the GCL.

The Tigers will be without former Marlin Ke'Bryan Hayes. The shortstop broke his kneecap. He was hitting .213 with 2 hoemrs and 8 RBI's this season.

Seattle will be without former Marlins righty Reynaldo Lopez with shoulder imflammation. He was 2-1 with 27 strikeouts in 24.1 innings with a 2.96 ERA.

I recalled Sanshiro Onuma from AAA to replace Popkin.

Jordan Montgomery (9-3, 2.89 ERA, 1.08 WHIP) took on Esteban Aguirre (4-5, 4.83 ERA, 1.47 WHIP). Monty beat them last series, Aguirre lost to us in the same matchup last week. It was far closer this time, as we came out on top 5-4.

Montgomery went 5.2 innings with 4 hits, 3 runs (2 earned, his own error as well), and 6 strikeouts. Jarred Kelenic pitched 1.1 innings with 2 hits. Hyo-jin Yaung got the win, despite allowing a hit, run, and walk while striking out the side in the 8th. Alpha Quivers struck out the side in the 9th and allowed a hit in the 9th.

Isaac Nunez was 3-for-4 with a homer, 2 doubles, 2 runs scored, and 2 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-2 with a solo homer, 2 runs, and 2 walks. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-3 with a double and RBI. We only had 6 hits.

July 29th, 2026: We looked to keep winning with Mike Soroka (5-6, 4.18 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) facing Alan Taylor (1-6, 3.61 ERA, 1.20 WHIP). We were up 1-0 heading into the 9th, but Eddie Fessenden hit an RBI double off Soroka in the 9th. In the 10th, Petey Halpin hit a RBI single off Jorge Moya, and they held on to the 2-1 lead.

Soroka almost went the distance, 8.2 innings with 4 hits, a run, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Moya got the loss, an inning with 2 htis, a run, walk, and strikeout.

Juan Ramirez was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a walk. Soroka was 1-for-3.

Dodgres SS Corey Seager hit his 300th career homer in a 5-4 win over the Giants. The 32-year-old and 11-Time All Star is a career .310/.381/.529 hitter with 1,021 RBI's in 1,625 games played.

July 30th, 2026: Former Marlin Jameson Taillon is out for the year with bone chips in his elbow. The Arizona reliever tossed just 5.1 innings with a walk, 2 strikeouts, and 6 earned runs.

The Athletics acquired C Chi-seong Pak form the Braves for LHP Matthew Liberatore and RHP Ben Bagley. It's a fair deal.

The Tigers acquired RHP Aaron Slegers and SS Joseph Paulino from the Indians for 1B Tristin English. I like this for the Tigers, but the Slegers story is interesting. After debuting in 2017 with the Twins, 2026 is the first year since where he's played in the majors. He is 2-1 with a 5.82 ERA and 1.56 WHIP as a 33-year-old.

Juan Ramirez is headed to the DL with a strained hamstring. I recalled RF Austin Hendrick from AAA, but I may end up acquiring an OF before the deadline tomorrow.

We needed to win this series, with Jake Florence (5-5, 3.59 ERA, 1.51 WHIP) taking on Cristian Sanchez (1-7, 4.67 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) who we hit well last time he played us. We couldn't score, and lost 3-1. Nice...

Florence went 5.1 innings with 8 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. The rest of the pen went 4.2 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and 7 strikeouts.

Deshawn Hardamon went 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Austin Hendrick was 3-for-4 with a double and steal.

Minnesota also had trouble hitting, and were shut out 5-0 by Daniel Camarena and the A's. The lefty allowed just 4 hits and struck out 3.

The Nationals come to town for three, and we'll see Lyon Richardson (7-5, 4.87 ERA), Kyle Molnar (4-4, 3.74 ERA), and Gage Hinsz (12-2, 3.52 ERA).

July 31st, 2026: Happy deadline day!

The Royals will be without rookie RHP J.J. Goss for the year. The former 5th Rounder has struggled in 24.1 innings with a 7.40 ERA, but with 31 strikeouts.

The Cubs will be without LHP Sean Stutzman, who tore his labrum. He had a 2.75 ERA and 49 strikeouts in 55.2 innings.

The Astros sent RHP Jonathan Holder and RHP Kymani McKever to the Blue Jays for RF Cole Brannen. I really like this for the Jays.

Oakland sent 2B Raynel Delgado and LHP Brad Rauter to the Pirates for RHP Sean Geise and LHP Jorge Flores (not the good one). I like this for the Pirates.

I made a deal with the devil, acquiring LF Billy Williamson from the extremely deep Nationals outfield for CF Rodolfo Medrano, CL Greg Walston, and 1B Garrett Frechette.

Williamson, 25, is a former 1st rounder ranked a 3.5/4* who's a gret defender and excellent hitter. He's got elite gap power, plus-plus contact and eye, and he rarely strikeouts. He has a little speed, and is controllable for a while. He's a career .289/.360/.479 hitter with 42 homers and 197 RBI's. Williamson was already in Miami since the Nationals series starts today, so he just had to switch dugouts.

I also optioned Roberto Pena and Austin Hendrick to AAA and recalled Junior from his rehab assignment.

Williamson was not in the lineup, as Devon Peterson (8-4, 4.14 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) took on Lyon Richardson (7-5, 4.87 ERA, 1.28 WHIP). Williamson did come off the bench, and hit a pinch hit, go ahead RBI single in the 3-2 win.

Peterson tossed 7 quality innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Ignacio Hinojos got the win, an inning with a strikeout. Alpha Quivers got the save, allowing a hit and walk, but he struck out the side.

Junior was 1-for-3 with a walk and solo homer in his return to the lineup. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a walk, steal, and run scored. Cole Roederer was 1-for-3 with a walk.

August 1st, 2026: The Brewers will be without C Carlos Perez for the year with a severely strained hip muscle. He was hitting .231 with 22 hoemrs and 52 RBI's.

We looked to improve our half game lead over the Phillies with Steve Paustian (6-6, 4.68 ERA, 1.41 WHIP) taking on Kyle Molnar (4-4, 3.74 ERA, 1.02 WHIP). Williamson hit fourth and played left today in his first start with the Marlins. He wasn't the hero today, but we won 6-1 and would look to finish the sweep tomorrow.

Paustian pitched 7 innings with 4 hits, a run, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella pitched the last 2 innings, allowoing a hit and walk while striking out 3.

Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with a three run homer and 4 RBI's. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with a run scored, RBI, and double. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a walk, double, and steal. Vlad Jt. was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, a walk, and steal.

Braves SP Clayton Nettleton tossed a 5-hitter in a 6-0 win over the Dodgers.

August 2nd, 2026: We looked to finish off the sweep with Jordan Montgomery (9-3, 2.91 ERA, 1.06 WHIP) battling Gage Hinsz (12-2, 3.52 ERA, 1.27 WHIP). Billy Williamson hit a three run homer off his former teammate in the first, and we cruised to a 6-2 win.

Montgomery lasted just 4.2 innings, with 6 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Brennan Malone got the win, 1.1 innings with a walk. Alpha Quivers struck out the side after Jorge Moya allowed a walk and hit, and Quivers picked up his 34th save.

Williamson was great, 2-for-4 with the three run homer and a double. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-4 with a double and steal. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a walk and three run homer of his own. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with a double. Seth Beer and Cole Roederer were both 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-2 with 2 walks and 2 runs scored.

RF Tim Green was 5-for-6 as his Rays crushed the Astros 16-1.

Tomorrow is a much needed day off as we finish a stretch of 13 straight games that we finished 8-5.

We looked to retake the series lead with Mike Soroka (5-6, 3.89 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) taking on Cole Ragans (7-10, 4.04 ERA, 1.39 WHIP). We've hit Ragans well, with Vladdy 9 for 20 with 3 homers and Deshawn Hardamon 7 for 16 with a solo homer. It wasn't even close, and we got destroyed 10-3.

Jake Florence (5-6, 3.81 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) took on Jacob Heatherly (0-1, 4.26 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) as we needed to split the series. We scored in every inning to win the finale 15-2.

As you would expect, a lot of offensive players went off. Cole Roederer was 4-for-6 with 4 runs, 2 RBI's, a walk, steal, and home run.

Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a run scored and walk. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with 2 walks, a homer, and 3 RBI's. Jordy Barley had a pinch hit double with a steal and run scored.

We're headed home to play the Rockies for three games. We'll see Forrest Whitley (6-6, 5.40 ERA), Jay Groome (7-8, 5.06 ERA), and A.J. Puk (7-1, 4.44 ERA).

August 11th-August 16th

August 11th, 2026: We hosted the Rockies for a three game series that started today with Devon Peterson (8-5, 4.07 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) facing Forrest Whitley (6-6, 5.40 ERA, 1.46 WHIP). It was a close one, but we started the series with a 5-3 victory.

Peterson went 5.2 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Jorge Moya and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before Alpha Quivers earned the save. Yaung allowed a run in an inning with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts. Quivers struck out all three hitters he faced.

Jordy Barley was 1-for-4 with a steal and run scored. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a steal. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a run scored, RBI, and double. The pitcher peterson was 2-for-2 with a pair of RBI's.

Rangers LF Michael Conforto hit for the cycle in a 10-6 win over the Astros.

August 12th, 2026: We looked to take the series a game early with Steve Paustian (7-6, 4.36 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) taking on Juan Coira (5-7, 5.39 ERA, 1.59 WHIP). The Rox tied the game at 4 in the 9th and forced extra innings. In the 10th, Dewitt MacGregor hit a walk off single off Juan Torribo, and we won the middle game 5-4.

Hyo-jin Yaung left with a sore elbow, and will head to the DL for likely the minimum.

Paustian went 5 innings with 7 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and a strikeout. Danny Niewald allowed a run in 2 innings with 2 hits and a walk. Alpha Quivers blew the save, allowing a run off 2 hits with a strikeout in the 9. Ignacio Hinojos imprvoed to 6-0 with a strikeout in a perfect 10th.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5 with a double, solo homer, and 2 runs scored. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 3-for-5 with a double, run scored, RBI, and steal. Jhon Solarte was 3-for-4 with 2 runs scored and a steal. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-4 with a walk, double, and RBI. Cole Roederer had a pinch-hit RBI double in the 7th. MacGregor was 1-for-4 with the game winning RBI and a walk.

August 13th, 2026: I recalled Josh Watson from AAA. He was awful in his first taste of the big leagues, but he's been amazing in AAA.

We looked to finish the sweep with the always reliable Jordan Montgomery (9-4, 2.93 ERA, 1.08 WHIP) taking on Jay Groome (7-8, 5.06 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). Reliable isn't how I'd descirbe Monty's performance, and we were down 8-0 after 4 innings. We decided not to give up, and after getting the score closer at 8-6, we doubled our run total in the bottom of the 8th and finished the sweep with a crazy 12-8 win.

Montgomery allowed 8 hits and 6 runs (5 earned) in 3.2 innings with just 1 strikeotu. Brennan Malone tossed 1.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, and 2 walks. The rest of the pen combined for 4 innings with just a single walk and 5 strikeouts. Hinojos got another win, striking out the last batter in the 8th.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a homer, and a walk. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-2 with 2 runs, 2 walks, 3 RBI's, and a triple. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a double, and 2 runs scored. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with a double, run scored, and sac-fly. Bobby Williamson was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, 2 RBI's, and a hit by pitch.

The Giants come to town for three before an off day. We'll see Tra'Mayne Blackburn (2-6, 4.39 ERA), Tyler Duffey (1-0, 4.79 ERA), and Madison Bumgarner (6-8, 3.88 ERA).

August 14th, 2026: We opened the Giants series against former #1 Overall Pick Tre'Mayne Blackburn (2-6, 4.39 ERA, 1.46 WHIP). Mike Soroka (5-7, 4.02 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) would face him as we looked to keep rolling. Tied at three in the 9th, the Giants broke ahead to win the opener 6-3.

Soroka had a solid outing, 6.2 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Quivers couldn't get an out, and he walked 2, allowed a hit, and was charged with 3 runs.

Jarred Kelenic was 3-for-4 with a double and a steal. Bobby Williamson was 1-for-3 with a two run homer and a walk. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Cole Roederer was 1-for-2 with a run scored and two walks.

August 15th, 2026: We looked to even the series back up with a different #1 overall pick Jake Florence (6-6, 3.80 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) facing 35-year-old veteran Tyler Duffey (1-0, 4.79 ERA, 1.35 WHIP). We got three in the sixth and won the middle game 6-4.

Florence didn't really pitch like a #1 overall pick, 3 runs in 2.2 innings with 4 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella tossed 2.1 innings with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts. Josh Watson got his first big league win, an inning with a hit and 2 strikeouts. Niewald and Hinojos got holds, and Alpha Quivers earned the save. Hinojos allowed a hit and run while getting a strikeouts.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 4-for-5 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a double. Jarred Kelenic doubled twice in four at bats with a run scored, RBI, and sac-fly. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a run scored and sac-bunt. Billy Williamson was 1-for-3 with a pair of RBI's and a walk.

August 16th, 2026: We looked to win the series with Devon Peterson (9-5, 4.03 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) facing veteran southpaw Madison Bumgarner (6-8, 3.88 ERA, 1.20 WHIP) who's still going strong at 37. We couldn't score off the three-time champion, and we were shut out 3-0.

Peterson went 5.2 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, and 8 strikeouts. The pen didn't allow a walk or hit in the last 3/1 innings. Watson (2) and Hinojos (3) struck out all the hitters they faced.

Bobby Williamson was 1-for-3 with a double and a walk. Peterson was 1-for-1 and is 3-for-3 in his last 2 games. Vladdy came off the bench and wass 1-for-2.

Dodgers CF Brett Phillips hit his 300th career homer in a 4-2 win over the White Sox. The 32-year-old isn't having the best season, but he's a career .252/.329/.509 hitter with 821 RBI's in 1,324 games.

Tomorrow is an off day before we travel to New York to face the Mets.

August 17th-August 24th

August 17th, 2026: The latest Power Rankings moved us to 3rd. At 72-48, we have the best record in the NL and a 4.5 game lead over the Phillies.

Looking ahead to the Mets series, we'd see former Marlin Tyler Mahle (3-12, 6.38 ERA), Robert Stephenson (1-8, 4.93 ERA), and Noah Syndegaard (4-7, 3.23 ERA) before another off day.

August 18th, 2026: We opened the series in the Big Apple with Steve Paustian (7-6, 4.32 ERA, 1.36 WHIP) facing Tyler Mahle (3-12, 6.38 ERA, 1.57 WHIP) who doesn't look like the star pitcher he was in his breif stint with us. We scored 4 in the first, and cruised to a 9-1 victory.

Paustian was brilliant, 8 innings with 3 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts. Brennan Malone finished the game, but allowed 2 hits.

Seth Beer was 1-for-2 with a pair of walks, 2 runs scored, 4 RBI's, a sac-fly, and a homer. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with a walk and run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a two run homer and sac-fly. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a run scored, 2 RBI's, a double, and a walk. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-3 with a pair of walks and a run scored. Despite the 9 runs, he had just 6 hits.

August 19th, 2026: We looked to take the series a game early in a battle of 33-year-olds, southpaw Jordan Montgomery (9-4, 3.24 ERA, 1.12 WHIP) and righty Robert Stephenson (1-8, 4.93 ERA, 1.17 WHIP). The pitching on our end was great, and we shut the Mets out 7-0.

Montgomery went 6.1 innings with 2 hits, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrellan and Brennan Malone went 2.2 innings with a hit, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.

Deshawn Hardamon was 3-for-5 with a homer and 2 RBI's. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with a walk, run scored, and two steals. Seth Beer was 1-for-5 with a two run homer. Dewitt MacGregor hit a pinch hit 2-run homer in the 9th. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-5 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Col Roederer and Isaac Nunez were both 1-for-4 with a run scored.

Former Marlin Giancarlo Stanton hit his 2,000th career hit in a 13-6 win over the rival Red Sox. The Yanks outfielder has just one year left in his massive contract he signed with the Marlins. In 7,891 at bats he's a career .254/.348/.561 hitter with 665 homers and 1,545 RBI's. At 36, he ranks 5th All-Time in homers, and has a shot to break Bonds' record with a few more solid seasons.

August 20th, 2026: We looked to ginish the sweep with Mike Soroka (5-7, 3.93 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) facing the still dominant Noah Syndergaard (4-7, 3.23 ERA, 1..07 WHIP). Soroka has had it rough with the Mets, 0.2 with a 7.62 ERA this year, and 1B Jake Lamb is 10-f0r-37 with 4 homers against the Canadian righty. Tied at 1, Juan Pulido hit a walkoff homer off Alpha Quivers and the Mets won the finale 2-1.

Soroka pitched great, and the impending free agent went 8 innings with 4 hits, a run, 2 walk, and 4 strikeouts. Alpha Quivers struck out the first batter he faced before allowing the homer.

Guess how we scored the only run? Mike Soroka hit a solo homer and he literally did whatever he could to win the game. Billy Williamson was 1-for-3 with a double. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3. That's all the offense...

It's, offensive?

We get tomorrow off and will head to Philly to face the Phillies.

August 20th, 2026: With the day off, we headed to Philly to face the Phillies, who sit 4 games behind us. We'd see Josh Wolf (5-6, 4.46 ERA), Josh Weske (6-4, 3.46 ERA), and Bobby Stiles (5-9, 3.98 ERA).

August 22nd, 2026: Juan Ramirez is off to Greensboro to begin a rehab assignment. I may leave him there until rosters expand, but we'll see.

We opened a criticla series with Jake Florence (6-6, 3.94 ERA, 1.55 WHIP) taking on Josh Wold (5-6, 4.46 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) in a battle of the two of the top three teams in the NL East. Former #3 overall pick Tyler Callihan absolutely feasts off Florence, hitting .524 with 3 hoemrs. A majority of the feasting came from my offense, that won the opener 10-4 while outhitting them 13-4.

Florence allowed all 4 runs and three of the hits in 2.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts as he's seen his ERA rise over 4 for the first time since April 9th. Brennan Malone got the win, 2.2 innings with 4 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella and Danny Niewald both tossed 2 innings. Estrella allowed a hit, walk, and struck out 3, while Niewald struck out 1.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 3-for-5 and a triple away from the cycle with 2 runs scored. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-5 with a run scored, double, and 3 RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a walk and solo homer. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, an RBI, walk, and sac-fly. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a run scored and a double. Billy Williamson was 1-for-5 with a two run homer.

CL Edwin Diaz recored his 300th career save today. Now a Dodger, the 5-Time All-Star has pitched in 703 games with a 2.71 ERA and 0.99 WHIP with 1,113 strikeouts and 225 walks in 736.2 innings.

August 23rd, 2026: I sent Hyo-jin Yaung to AAA for rehab until roster expansion.

Former Marlins 1st Round Pick Josh Weske (6-4, 3.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) took on Devon Peterson (9-6, 4.06 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) in the middle game. Thomas Dillard hasn't faced Weske too much, but is 3-for-4 with 3 homers. The Phillies managed to even the series with an 8-5 win.

Peterson allowed 4 runs in 4.2 innings off 4 hits, a walk, and 4 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella allowed 2 runs in an inning off a hit, walk, and strikeout. Josh Watson allowed 3 hits and a run while getting just 1 out. Niewald got 1 out as well, with 2 hits, a run, and walk.

Vladdy was 3-for-5 with a solo homer, double, and 2 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a two run homer (not off Weske, he left with an injury the batter before Dillard's first at bat) with a double and walk. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, a double, and 2 walks.

August 24th, 2026: Former Marlin Tyler Mahle is out for the rest of this year and likely the start of next year with a partially torn ulnar collateral ligament. He was a poor 3-13 with a 6.65 ERA in 26 games started.

The White Sox will be without talented young closer Nehemiah Smithbrown for the year with a torn labrum. He won't be ready for the start of next year, but had 25 saves and a 2.90 ERA in 77.2 innings with an even 100 strikeouts.

We moved up one more spot to 2nd in the Power Rankings, and hold a 4 game lead over the Braves with our 75-50 record.

The rubber match saw Steve Paustian (8-6, 4.11 ERA, 1.31 WHIP) battle Bobby Stiles (5-9, 3.98 ERA, 1.26 WHIP). After a 60 minute rain delay in the 5th, the Phillies got a run that helped them win the finale 3=2. They should've suspended the game...

Paustian pitched fine, 4 innings with a hit, run, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Brennan Malone went an inning with 2 hits, a run, and a strikeout. Jorge Moya got the loss, an inning with a hit, run, and strikeout.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with a double and RBI. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Twins 2B Kleyber Rodriguez was 5-for-6 in a 14-5 win over the White Sox. The Rookie switch hitter is hitting .293/.374/.380 with 11 steals, 2 homers, and 15 RBI's in 150 at bats.

Nationals SP Cole Ragans tossed a 7-hit shutout in a 9-0 win over the Astros.

Luckily, our road trip is over, and we're headed back home to host the Padres. We'll see Chris Rodriguez (12-3, 3.63 ERA), Jeff Slezak (5-6, 4.21 ERA), and MacKenzie Gore (9-7, 4.01 ERA).

August 25th-August 30th

August 25th, 2026: The Royals will be without veteran reliever Arodys Vizcaino for the rest of the season with a torn labrum. He's likely to miss most of if not all of next year as well, and combine that with a poor season (2-2 with a 5.83 ERA), this might mark the end of his big league career.

The Padres come to town for three, and the opener will see Jordan Montgomery (10-4, 3.07 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) take on Chris Rodriguez (12-3, 3.63 ERA, 1.17 WHIP). Down 3-1 headed into the 9th, we got three in the 9th to walkoff winners, 4-3.

Montgomery pitched well, 7 innings with 4 hits, 3 runs (2 earned), 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Igancio Hinojos, Sanshiro Onuma, and Josh Watson each faced 1 batter and got them out in the 8th. Alpha Quivers got the win, an inning with a strikeout.

Billy Wiliamson was 1-for-3 with a solo homer, walk, and two RBI's. Jarred Kelenci was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Thomas Dillard was 0-for-1, but walked three times, including the game winner.

August 26th, 2026: Red Sox lefty Tyler Holton is out for the rest of the year and part of next year with a torn rotator cuff. He had a rough season, 0-2 with a 8.80 ERA in 32 relief appearences.

The middle games saw Mike Soroka (5-7, 3.79 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) face rookie Jeff Slezak (5-6, 4.21 ERA, 1.30 WHIP). This game took 10 innings, but we had another walk off and won 5-4.

Soroka went 5 innings, allowing 9 hits, 4 runs, and a walk with 3 strikeouts. The pen combined for 5 innings with a hit, walk, and 6 strikeouts. Quivers got the win again, 2 innings with a hit, walk, and 3 strikeouts. He has an impressive 2.5 pWAR this year as a reliever.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with a homer, 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a walk. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-4 wiht a walk, a steal, 2 runs, and a triple. Billy Williamson was 2-for-3 with a walk. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

August 27th, 2026: We looked to finish the sweep with Jake Florence (6-6, 4.16 ERA, 1.56 WHIP) looking to bounce back against fellow 27-year-old MacKenzie Gore (9-7, 4.01 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). Another extra inning game, but the Padres managed to edge us 3-2.

Florence was solid, 7+ innings with 5 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Onuma allowed a homer to the only batter he faced. Jorge Moya struck out 4 and walked 1 in 1.2 innings. Danny Niewald got the loss, an inning with 2 hits, a run, walk, and strikeout.

Cole Roederer was 1-for-5 with a solo hoemr. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored.

We headed to Washington to face the Nationals for a three game series. We'd see Cole Ragans (10-11, 3.71 ERA), Gage Hinsz (13-4, 3.87 ERA), and Jhon Vergara (5-7, 5.27 ERA).

August 28th, 2026: We opened the series in our nation's capital with Devon Peterson (9-7, 4.18 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) facing Cole Ragans (10-11, 3.71 ERA, 1.33 WHIP). Deshawn Hardamon hits Ragans well, 8-for-18 with a home run. We got six in the fourth, and that's all we needed in the 6-3 win.

Peterson left with forearm inflammation, and will head to the DL for about 2 weeks. He went 5.2 innings with 6 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts.

Josh Watson and Igancio Hinojos got holds while Ernesto Estrealla earned the save. They combined for 3.1 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and a strikeout.

Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a three run homer. Billy Williamson was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a run scored, double, and RBI. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a run scored and RBI.

August 29th, 2026: I recalled Luis Ardon from AAA to replace Peterson on the roster. He'd fill the 5th spot in the rotation.

We opened the series with Steve Paustian (8-6, 4.05 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) taking on Gage Hinsz (13-4, 3.87 ERA, 1.33 WHIP). Paustian is 2-1 against the Nats with a 2.31 ERA this year. It was close, but rookie Alex Guerrero hit a walk off homer off Quivers and the Nationals won 3-2.

Paustian went 5 innings with 5 hits, 2 runs, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Quivers faced just 1 batter, Guerrero, in the loss.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Seth Beer walked 3 times and scored a run. Jordy Barley came off the bench for him, and was 0-for-1 with a steal and run scored. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a walk and RBI.

August 30th, 2026: Here's something that doesn't make sense: I climaed OF Daylen Lile off waivers from the Yankees.

Now, that doesn't seem to strange, right? Well, he's rated a 2.5/4.5* and every other team in the league passed on him. He's jsut 23, a lefty, and pretty good at everything excpet hitting homers, and when I tried trading for him in the offseason really all the Yankees would accept is Juan Ramirez or Rogelio Maldonado.

I'd let Lile stay DFA'd until rosters expand in just 2 days.

We looked to win the series with Jordan Montgomerly (10-4, 3.04 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) facing Jhon Vergara (5-7, 5.27 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). The pitching was brilliant, and we shut them out 3-0.

Montgomery went 5.2 innings with 4 hits, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Josh Watson, Sanshiro Onuma, Iganico Hinojos, and Jorge Moya got holds before Alpha Quivers struck out the side in the 9th to earn the save.

Vladdy was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a 2-run double. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

Down in AAA, Austin Hendrick was 5-for-6 in a 8-6 win over the Round Rock Express.

Kris Bryant hit his 400th career homer as the Cubs beat the Pirates 604. The 34-year-old and former #2 overall pick is still going strong, and is a career .271/.373/.512 hitter with 1,118 RBI's in 6,677 at bats as a Cubby.

We're headed home to face the Phillies for four. We'd see Steve Fettig (13-6, 3.01 ERA), Josh Wolf (6-7, 4.45 ERA), Aaron Nola (4-8, 5.14 ERA), and Jim Gilbert (12-2, 3.03 ERA).

August 31st-September 6th

August 31st, 2026: Mason Barnett will likely be out until 2028 with elbow ligament reconstruction surgery. this is the second time he'll undergo this surgery, and it's been really the only injury he has dealt with in his career.

Austin Hendrick was named American Confrence Player of the Week. The lefty went 12-for-24 with 2 hoemrs and 12 RBI's. He's going to recieve a callup sometime in September.

We dropped to 3rd in the Power Rankings. He have a 3.5 game lead over the Braves, and sit at 79-53.

We started the four game set with Mike Soroka (5-7, 3.91 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) taking on Steve Fettig (13-6, 3.01 ERA, 0.96 WHIP). Vladdy loves facing him, and he's 7-for-19 with three homers. The Phillies offense was the headline, and they beat us 7-3 in the opener.

Soroka allowed 7 runs and 8 hits in 4.2 innings with 2 walks and a strikeout. Brennan Malone struck out 5 and allowed 2 hits in 2.1 innings.

Cole Roederer was 2-for-3 with a triple, run scored, steal, RBI, and walk. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with a walk and 2 steals. Jhon Solarte was 1-for-3 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double.

September 1st, 2026: Rosters expand today! I placed LF Dayen Lile on the active roster, recalled Hyo-jin Yaung from his rehab assignment, as well as LF Juan Ramirez.

Jacksonville 3B Juan Romo was named Florida State Leauge Batter of the Month. The 24-year-old hit .313 with 4 homers and drove in 20 runs.

Down in Jupiter, CL Joe Martin was named Pitcher of the Month. He was 4-0 with a 1.24 ERA and struck out just 8 in 21.2 innings. I selected him 22nd overall this season, and to limit his innings, he's only started 3 games.

We looked to even the series back up with Jake Florence (6-6, 4.01 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) taking on Josh Wolf (6-7, 4.45 ERA, 1.23 WHIP). Lile hit leadoff and played RF in his Marlins debut. We couldn't do much with the bat, and we lost again, this time 4-2.

Florence went 5.1 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Onuma allowed a run with 2 hits and a strikeout.

Jon Reid was 1-for-2 with a walk and 2 run double. Dewitt MacGregor was 1-for-3 with a double and run scored. The only reason they played is because I benched Dillard and Guerrero, who were both tired. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

September 2nd, 2026: Luis Ardon made his first start of the season against Aaron Nola (4-8, 5.14 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) in a must win game. We didn't score at all, and were shut out 1-0. We're about to get swept in four games at home...


Ardon pitched well, 6.1 innings with 6 hits, a run, and 9 strikeouts. Alpha Quivers struck out the side in the 9th.

Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a triple. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-4 with a double.

September 3rd, 2026: I recalled Joseph Jarneski and Roberto Pena from AAA. Most callups will likely happen on the 7th once Jupiter finsihed with their season.

I claimed former Marlin CF Rodolfo Medrano off waivers from the Nationals. Party of the Williamson deal, Medrano never appearend in a game for us, but now he will and has been added to the active roster. The CF is rated a 2/4.5 and is just 22-years-old. He's a bit of a clubhouse problem, but is talented enough to be traded again. Our chemistry is also ecstatic right now and maxed out, so we should be good.

We really, really, really needed to avoid the sweep, with Steve Paustian (8-6, 4.03 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) facing Josh Weske (6-4, 3.50 ERA, 1.11 WHIP). We tried blowing it, but we held on to a 4-3 win.

Paustian was great, 6 innings with just 2 hits, a pair of walks, a run, and he struck out 7. Sanshiro Onuma, Jorge Moya, and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before Alpha Quivers got the save. It wasn't pretty for Quivres, and we allowed 2 runs off a hit and walk, but also struck out the side.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-2 with 2 runs, 2 walks, and a steal. Billy Williamson was 1-for-3 with a sac-fly, double, and 3 RBI's. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-4 with a run scored, RBI, and double. Daylen Lile was 1-for-3 with a steal. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Down in Greensboro, RF Wilfredo Vichez was 5-for-6 in a 14-9 win over the Lakewood BlueClaws.

Now with an even 80 wins, the Nationals will come to town for three. We'll face Jhon Vergara (5-8, 5.31 ERA), Jacob Heatherly (0-3, 6.49 ERA), and Tyler Dyson (8-3, 2.88 ERA).

September 4th, 2026: Jordan Montgomery (11-4, 2.91 ERA, 1.08 WHIP) got the start against Jhon Vergara (5-8, 5.31 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) to start the series. It took 12 innings, but Alex Guerrero hit a go-ahead RBI single off Brennan Malone and they won the opener 3-2 as we've hit a little rough patch.

Monty lasted just 4 innings with 7 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), and 6 strikeouts. Josh Watson tossed 3 innings against the team that drafted him in the 1st round, with 3 hits and 5 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella went 2.1 innings with a hit, run scored, 2 walks, and 4 strikeotus.

Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-5 with a triple and walk. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-5. Billy Williamson was 1-for-3 with 2 walks.

Angels rookie Jeff AImone hit the first 3 homers of his career in an 11-6 win over the A's. He now has 12 big league at bats, and is hitting .333 with 5 RBI's.

September 5th, 2026: With our lead down to 2.5 games, we needed to get back in the win collumn with Mike Soroka (5-8, 4.20 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) battling Jacob Heatherly (0-3, 6.49 ERA, 1.59 WHIP). We couldn't score, again, and were shut out 6-0. Uh oh...

Soroka allowed 4 (2 earned) in 3 innings with 6 hits and 2 strikeouts. Danny Niewald allowed a run and 4 hits in 2 innigns with a walk and strikeout. Ernesto Estrella allowed a hit, run, and struck out 2 in an inning of work.

We had just 4 hits as a team. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a walk. Jarred Kelenic and Vlad were both 1-for-4. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3.

Astros RF Mookie Betts was 5-for-6 in a 15-4 win over the Mariners.

Corey Seager hit his 2,000th career hitin a 1-0 win over the Diamondbacks. The 11-Time All-Star is a career .311/.381/.532 hitter with 311 homers and 1,051 RBI's in 1,659 games with the Dodgres.

September 6th, 2026: Oakland will be without LHP Daniel Camarena for the year with radial nerve compression. He was 4-6 with a 4.17 ERA in 37 games (16 starts).

Roman Wick has decided to call it a career after tearing his labrum. The 33-year-old Canadian was 23-14 with 23 saves and a 3.27 ERA in 369.1 career innings with the Padres, Cardinals, and Mets.

We really needed to avoid the sweep, with Jake Florence (6-7, 4.05 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) taking on the overachieving Tyler Dyson (8-3, 2.88 ERA, 1.07 WHIP). It took 11 innings before someone decided to score, and luckily it was Cole Roederer, who took Martin Santana deep for a walk-off solo homer.

Jake Florence went 5 innings with 4 hits, 4 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Roberto Pena, the 3B, tossed 2 innings with 2 walks and 2 strikeouts, and I had no clue he was a two way player. He's actually a semi-decenet pitcher too. Hyo-jin Yaung struck out the side in the 8th, despite allowing a hit and walk.

Roederer was great all game, 3-for-4 with the homer and a walk. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-3 with a walk. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with a double. Dayle nLile was 1-for-4 with a steal.

We're off to Atlanta to face the Braves for three. We'll ssee Mack Anglin (4-4, 3.45 ERA), Mashiaro Tanaka (8-6, 4.01 ERA), and Ty Madden (10-7, 3.41 ERA).

September 7th-September 14th

September 7th, 2026: I recalled RF Austin Hendrick from AAA. His teammate, 1B Ashton McGee was named Player of the Week, going 10-for-25 with 3 homers and 5 RBI's.

We reamin 3rd in the Power Rankings with our 81-58 record.

We opened the series in Atlanta with Luis Ardon (0-1, 1.42 ERA, 0.95 WHIP) facing Mack Anglin (4-4, 3.45 ERA, 1.22 WHIP). We spread our runs out, and one the opener 5-4 to secure an over .500 record for another season.

Ardon allowed 4 runs in 4 innings with 4 hits, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. We used almost the entire pen, 8 pitchers who pitched 5 innings with 1 hit, 4 walks, and 8 strikeout. Jorge Moya got the win, Hyo-jin Yaung and Alpha Quivers holds, and Ignacio Hinojos the save.

Jarred Kelenic was 3-for-5 with 2 RBI's. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with two solo homers. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-4 with a pair of doubles, a walk, and a run scored. Billy Williamson was 2-for-4 with a solo homer. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 1-for-4 with a hit by pitch and run scored.

Padres starter Dallas Woolfolk tossed a 7-hit shutout in a 9-0 win over the Cardinals.

September 8th, 2026: Greensboro finished their season yestreday, so I could make a wave of callups. I recalled C Jake Taylor and pitchers Marc Bjork and Gunnar Hoglund. The active roster sits at 35 with a pair of players (Devon Peterson and Devonte Brown) on the DL and 3 open 40-man spots. One spot I think I'd save with Ben Popkin returning in 5 weeks so I don't have to DFA someone during the postseason. I think I'll use the open spots on CL Joe Kramer and 3B Dansby Swanson, but I'd most likely wait until the AAA playoffs are over.

Steve Paustian (9-96, 3.91 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) took the mound against Ty Madden (10-7, 3.41 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) in the second of four. Both pitchers have won against the opposing team this year. The bats ran wild, and we crushed them 12-3.

Paustian went 6 innings with 7 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 4 strikeouts, although all the damage came in the 3rd. Josh Watson tossed 2 innings with a hit, walk, and 4 strikeouts.

Jarred Kelenic was 3-for-5 with 3 runs, 2 doubles, and an RBI. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a double, homer, and 4 RBI's. Seth Beer was 2-for-5 with a walk, homer, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with a run scored, 2 RBI's, 2 walks, and a double. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored. Juan Ramirez was 2-for-6 with a run scored, double, and 2 RBI's.

Mets CF Adrian Hernandez was 5-for-5 in a 9-0 win over the Reds.

September 9th, 2026: Pirates CL Robby Steinmetz has bone chips in his elbow, and will be out for the year. He had 15 saves and a 3.07 ERA with 65 strikeouts in 44 innings. A former 19th round pick by the Tigers who was released after draft day, he's bounced around and finally stuck with the Pirates where he's really found his spot. He's a 5* closer, but can also start. He's very similar to Igancio Hinojos on my team.

We looked to keep winning with Jordan Montgomery (11-4, 2.89 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) facing his former Yankees teammate Mashiaro Tanaka (8-6, 4.01 ERA, 1.01 WHIP). It was an old fashioned pitchers duel, and despite trying to give it up in the 9th, we won 3-2.

Monty went 5 with 5 hits, a run, and 5 strikeouts. Ignacio Hinojos, Marc Bjork, Ernesto Estrella, Sanshiro Onuma, and Joseph Jarneski got holds before Alpha Quivers got the save. Quivers allowed a hit, run, walk, and he struck out 2.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with a walk and a pair of solo homers. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a walk and double. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Roberto Pena was 1-for-4 with an RBI.

September 10th, 2026: We looked to finish the four game road sweep against a potential playoff team with Mike Soroka (5-9, 4.24 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) who just asked a broke team for a 10-year, $185 million extension, facing Clayton Nettleton (7-3, 3.05 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) who's pitching through a strained oblique. It didn't hinder him from pitching well, and the Braves salavged the finale with a 5-1 win.

Soroka allowed 6 hits and 4 runs in 5 innings with a walk and 4 strikeouts. Marc Bjork allowed a run in 1.1 innings with a hit, walk, and 2 strikeouts.

Juan Ramirez was 3-for-4. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a steal. Billy Williamson was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

We get tomorrow off before heading to Philadelphia for a three game set with the 2nd place Phillies.

September 11th, 2026: I activated Devon Peterson from the DL.

The New York Mets have been eliminated from the playoffs. At 58-85, they are 26 games behind us, and will miss the playoffs for the first time since 2019. Man, it's realy nice to see the Mets eliminated!

The St. Louis Cardinals were also eliminated. They share the same record as the Mets, but are 25 games out of first. They haven't made the playoffs since 2016.

In Philly, we'll see Steve Fettig (15-6, 2.99 ERA), Josh Wolf (7-8, 4.27 ERA), and Josh Wekse (6-5, 3.46 ERA) as our road trip continues.

September 12th, 2026: We opened the series at Citizens Bank Park with a 4 game lead over the host Phillies. Jake Florence (6-7, 3.90 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) will take on Steve Fettig (15-6, 2.99 ERA, 0.96 WHIP) who I'm guessing my scout has been wrong on for years now... He pitched fine, and we were down 8-3 when the top of the 7th started. 6 runs later, we had a 9-8 lead once it was their turn to hit. He held the lead, and had a nice comeback to win the opener 9-8.

There was a bad part, however, and Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was injured in a collision on the base paths, and will head to the DL with a mild hamstring strain. It's not a big injury, but it'll hinder him for about 2 weeks and it's now worth risking a worse injury.

Florence allowed 6 runs and 6 hits with 6 walks in 4.1 innings with jsut 1 strikeouts. Roberto Pena, the infielder, got the win, 1.2 innings with 2 hits, 2 runs, and a walk. I don't know why Boone likes using him so much, but he's been acceptable. Onuma, Estrella, Danny Niewald, and Yaung got holds, while Alpha Quivers got the save. Yaung allowed 2 htis, but struck out the side in the 8th.

Former Philly Isaac Nunez was 4-for-5 with a grand slam, 2 runs scored, and a steal. Deshawn Hardamon was 3-for-5 with a homer and 2 RBI's. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a solo homer, a walk, and 2 runs scored. Vladdy was 1-for-3 with a walk and steal before leaving with his injury. Cole Roederer was 1-for-3 with a solo homer.

September 13th, 2026: We looked to take the series a day early with Devon Peterson (10-7, 4.21 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) returning from the DL against Josh Wolf (7-8, 4.27 ERA, 1.20 WHIP). Jordy Barley got the start at third, and I'd play him there until Junior returns from the DL. Despite being down 3-0 after the first, we never gave up, and ended up winning 10-3.

Peterson went 5.2 innings with 6 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. Hinojos finished the 6th with a strikeout and got a hold. Brennan Malone tossed 2 innings, allowing a hit, and striking out 4 to lower his ERA to 3.66. Before he went on the DL, his ERA was over 7.00!

Austin Hendrick was 2-for-4 with a walk, 3 runs, 3 RBI's, and a home run. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a homer, walk, and 2 RBI's. Daylen Lile was 1-for-4 with a run scored, RBI, and sac-bunt. Billy Williamson was great off the bench, 2-for-2 with a double, homer, 2 runs, and 2 RBI's. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-4 with a run scored, RBI, double, and walk. Devon Peterson was 1-for-1 with a double, sac-bunt, and run scored.

September 13th, 2026: Royals SP Axsel Jimenez is out for the year with shoulder inflammation. The 26-year-old Dominican was 10-5 with a 3.17 ERA.

Somehow, we're still ranked 3rd in the Power Rankings, and the Brewers, our next opponent, jumped over us.

The Boston Red Sox have been eliminated from the playoffs. At 58-86, they are 34 games out of first place. They haven't made the postseason since 2022.

We looked to finish the sweep with Steve Paustian (10-6, 3.94 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) facing Josh Weske (6-5, 3.46 ERA, 1.10 WHIP). We couldn't finish off another series, and the Phillies took the finale 6-3.

Paustian went just 3 innings with 5 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Gunnar Hoglund made his seaosn debut, tossing 2 innings with 2 hits and 2 strikeouts. Hyo-jin Yaung allowed 2 runs off 2 hits and a walk with 2 strikeouts.

Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a steal. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-4 wiht 2 runs scored and a double. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a two run double. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with 2 walks and a run scored. Billy Williamson was 1-for-3 with a walk.

We're off to Milwaukee to face the red hot Brewers as we conclude our long road trip. We'll face Alfredo Rivera (11-11, 3.54 ERA), Victor Mederos (9-9, 4.09 ERA), and Shane Baz (6-7, 4.70 ERA). We both have the same record, but the NL Central is beyond awful, so their magic number is just 1 compared to my 13...

September 15th-September 20th

September 15th, 2026: We opened the series at Miller Park with the red hot Jordan Montgomery (12-4, 2.85 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) facing Alfredo Rivera (11-11, 3.54 ERA, 1.14 WHIP). Honestly, it seems like Montgomery almost always gets better with age. He wan't great, but we managed to take the opener 7-5 with help from a 4 run 7th.

Montgomery went 6 innings with 7 hits, 5 runs, a walk, and 7 strikeouts. Ernesto Estrella got the win, an inning with a walk and 2 strikeouts. Sanshiro Onuma and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before Alpha Quivers got his 42nd save of the year.

Daylen Lile was 2-for-5 with a double, triple, run scored, steal, and 2 RBI's. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with a solo homer, a sac-fly, and a hit by pitch. Jhon Solarte hit a pinch hit solo home rin the 8th, Billy Williamson was 1-for-4 with a walk and double. Jake Taylor was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Austin Hendrick got a pinch hit double in the 8th, and later scored.

September 16th, 2026: Rangers righty and former Marlin Jake Junis is getting surgery to remove bone chips in his elbow, and will miss the rest of the year. He was 3-7 with a 5.56 ERA in 19 starts.

The Brewers looked to clinch a playoff birth with Victor Mederos (9-9, 4.09 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) facing Mike Soroka (5-10, 4.33 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) who has really struggled as of late. We got three quick runs and never gave up the lead in a 6-4 win.

Soroka went 6 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Marc Bjork allowed 2 runs in 1.2 innings with 3 htis, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Jorge Moya finished the 8th to get a hold, and Alpha Quivers struck out 2 in the 9th for the save. Quivers has now struck out 100 in 64 innings for an impressive 14.1 K/9.

Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with a walk, double, homer, and 2 RBI's. Billy Williamson was 1-for-2 with an RBI, double, 2 walks, and a steal. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a double. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with 2 runs, a walk, and a double. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored.

September 16th, 2026: Rockies SP Forrest Whitley is out for the year with bone chips in his elbow. He was 7-11 with a 5.44 ERA with 144 strikeouts in 134 innings.

The Baltimore Orioles become the first team to clinch a playoff spot, and will be able to defend their title. At 94-55, they have an 11.5 game lead over the Rays. The Orioles lineup is so scary that the top four guys in their lineup are all under 30 and 5 stars.

Just like the prevoius two series, we looked for the sweep heading into the finale. Jake Florence (6-7, 4.16 ERA, 1.57 WHIP) took on Shane Baz (6-7, 4.70 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) in the finale. Unlike the past two series, we were able to finish the sweep, and we beat the Crew 5-1.

Florence went 6.1 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 10 strikeouts. Josh Watson allowed a run, hit, and 2 walks in an inning.

Rodolfo Medrano was 2-for-5 with a pair of doubles, an RBI, and run scored. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-3 with a walk, steal, and RBI. Deshawn Hardamon 2-for-4 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-5 with a double and run scored. Seth Beer was 2-for-4 with a walk.

We're headed home for a three game set with the already eliminated New York Mets. We'll see Livio Montella (10-4, 2.72 ERA), Alex Lange (8-3, 4.02 ERA), and Noah Syndergaard (8-7, 2.77 ERA).

September 18th, 2026: I made my callups, purchasing the contract of 3B Dansby Swanson and CL Joe Kramer.

Kramer, 23, was a 1st Round Pick back in 2022 and was #36 overall. Here's what I wrote about him:

1st Round, 36th Overall: SP Joe Kramer (3.5): Consider this a trade for Zach Davies, as this is the pick I recieved for him filing for free agency. Kramer is just 18, but has a higher ceiling then Davies. He's got three plus pitches, is a durable arm that can get you late into games, and is a well rounded pitcher who always keeps the ball on the ground. He's throwing consistently 90-92 at such a young age, and was named Arizona High School Player of the Year with a perfect 10-0 record and 0.98 ERA with 163 K's in 101.1 innings.

Let's call that trade a win. Kramer may not have developed into a starter, but he's still adurable arm that throws a little harder now (91-93) with elite stuff. He still has the plus fastball and sinker, but that plus change up is more like a non-existant change up. He's rated a 2.5/4.5 and does a great job of inducing groundballs.

Swanson, 32, was a minor league free agent that I signed who was a long time Brave. I think he's extremely overrated in real life, but he's a decent 2.5* in this game with elite defense at the hot corner, and should fill in well for Vladdy. He also hit .378/.416/.535 with 2 homers and 18 RBI's in AAA, so there is that.

Milwaukee still ended up in the playoffs, and will head to the playoffs for the first time the first time since 2011. At 86-63, they have a 14 game lead over the Cubs.

The Colorado Rockies will not see them in the postseason, and have been officially eliminated. At 68-82, they are 16 games behind the Dodgres. They haven't made the playoffs since 2022 when they won the NL West, even after trading me Brendan Rodgers.

We opened up the series back at home with Devon Peterson (11-7, 4.23 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) facing Livio Montella (10-4, 2.72 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). Peterson has done well against the last place Mets, 2-0 with a 1.32 ERA. He was brilliant today, and we shut them out 2-0 to win our 90th game of the year.

Peterson went 6 with 7 hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Igancio Hinojos, Sanshiro Onuma, Ernesto Estrella, Danny Niewald, and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before Alpha Quivers got the save.

Jake Taylor was 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Roberto Pena was 2-for-3. Daylen Lile was 0-for-2 with 2 walks and a steal. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

Orioles SS Logan Davidson extended his hit streak to 20 games.

September 19th, 2026: We looked to keep rolling with Steve Paustian (10-7, 4.11 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) taking on Alex Lange (8-3, 4.02 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) who's pitching in his 74th game, although it'll be just his 3rd start. Swanson will hit 8th and man the hot corner in his Marlins debut. Down 5-3 in the 9th, we got two off closer Jamie Callahan to force extras. In the 11th, Ahmed Rosario hit an RBI single off Ignacio Hinojos and the Mets held the 6-5 lead.

Paustian went just 4 innings with 7 hits, 5 runs, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Brennan Malone tossed 3 mop up innings with 2 htis, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Hinojos got his first loss of the year, now 7-1 with 2 hits and a run scored.

Rodolfo Medrano was 2-for-6 with 2 RBI's. Seth Beer was 2-for-5. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-5 with a double. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-4 with a walk, triple, and run scored. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-5 with a double and run scored.

And just like that, Davidson's hit streak is over at 20.

September 20th, 2026: Vladdy suffered a setback, and will now not be ready for at least a week.

Somehow, Josh DeGroat will miss just 4 months with a torn rotator cuff. He was 2-1 with a save and a 3.75 ERA and 1.46 WHIP in 24 innnings.

We needed to win the series in a nice ace-off, Jordan Montgomery (12-4, 3.04 ERA, 1.11 WHIP) taking on Noah Syndergaard (8-7, 2.77 ERA, 0.95 WHIP). Montgomery has done well against the Mets, 4-1 with a beautriful 1.48 ERA). We tried really hard to blow the game, but we held off the Mets to win the finale 5-4.

Montgomery went 5 innings with 4 hits, a run, and 11 strikeouts. Marc Bjork, Joseph Jarneski, and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before Ignacio Hinojos got the save. Bjork allowed a run off 2 hits in the 6th inning. Yaung and Hinojos both pitched the 9th, the former getting 2 outs with a hit, run, and strikeout. The latter with 2 hits, a run, a walk, and a strikeout.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with 2 runs scored and 2 doubles. Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-4 with a double, steal, and run scored. Rodolfo Medrano was 1-for-4 with a homer and 2 RBI's. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-3 with a hit by pitch and steal. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI.

We get tomorrow off, and we'll use it to head to Arizona to begin our last road trip of the year!

September 21st-September 27th

Septemebr 21st, 2026: Rays reliever Francisco Rios is undergoing elbow reconstruction surgery and likely won't pitch again until spring training in 2028. The 31-year-old was 4-2 with a 5.16 ERA and 1.48 WHIP in 75 innings.

The Power Rankings rank us 2nd in the majors. At 91-61, our magic number is down to just 6 and only the Orioles (95-57) have a better record.

Ryas LF Steele Walker was 5-for-6 in a 13-8 win over the Orioles.

We arrived in Arizona, where we will start a three game series tomorrow. We'll see Jhoan Duran (4-13, 5.41 ERA), Esteban Orozco (1-1, 4.50 ERA), and Steven Gingery (13-7, 3.93 ERA) in our second to last road series of the regular season.

September 22nd, 2026: Mike Soroka (6-10, 4.28 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) took the mound against Jhoan Duran (4-13, 5.41 ERA, 1.41 WHIP) to start our series in Arizona. We scored 6 in the 8th and just barely held off the Diamondbacks in a 9-8 win.

Soroka went 4.2 innings with 9 hits, 5 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Marc Bjork got the win, 0.2 innings with a hit. Jorge Moya allowed a run in the 8th off a hit and strikeout. Alpha Quivers got the save, striking out the side in the 9th dedspite allowing 2 hits and runs.

Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-4 with a homer and 3 RBI's. Juan Ramirez was 1-for-5 with a steal and run scored. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-4 with a walk and two run homer. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and a homer. Cole Roederer pinch hit for Marc Bjork in the 8th, and got two at bats, 2-for-2 with a double to leadoff the big inning, as well as a run scored and RBI.

Red Sox RF Bryce Harper hit his 500th career homer. At 33, he also has a chance to break Barry Bonds' home run record. He's a career .287/.403/.537 hitter with 1,283 RBI's in 2,144 games with the Nationals, Phillies, and Red Sox.

September 23rd, 2026: Phillies LHP Jimmy Nash tore his flexor tnedon in his elbow, and will miss the rest of this year and likely the start of next year. He had a 6.08 ERA in 50 relief appearences.

A little playoff news, the Orioles clinched the AL East, and we clinched a playoff birth. Granted, the Wild Card, and I want the division, but it's progress. At 92-61, we are just 4 games away from our single season record, and have a nice 6.5 game lead over Atlanta. It's also our 6th straight playoff appearence.

We looked to inch closer to clinching the division with Jake Florence (7-7, 3.98 ERA, 1.53 WHIP) taking on Steven Ginvery (13-7, 3.93 ERA, 1.25 WHIP). It was a close one, but we edged the now 85-70 Diamondbacks 4-2.

Florence went 8, allowing 5 hits, 2 runs (1 eanred), and 1 walk while striking out 3. Quivers was much better today, just a hit and strikeout in the 9th as he earned his 46th save.

Bobby Williamson was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a double. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with a walk adn run scored. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-3 with a walk.

September 24th, 2026: The Seattle Mariners are headed to the playoffs. At 87-68, they will at least be a Wild Card, but at 87-68, they currently have a 3.5 game lead over the A's.

We looked to finish the sweep with Devon Peterson (12-7, 4.07 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) taking on Zach Linginfelter (8-9, 5.00 ERA, 1.31 WHIP). We got 3 quick runs in the first and cruised to a nice 6-1 win to finish off the sweep.

Peterson went 6 with 4 hits, a run, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Ignacio Hinojos and Brennan Malone combined for 3 innings, a hit, and 3 strikeouts.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a homer, 2 walks, and a steal. Thomas Dillard was 1-for-5 with a run scored, 2 RBI's, a double, and a steal. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with a double, run scored, and walk. Roberto Pena was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI.

We're off to Colorado for our final road series of the year. We'll see Jay Groome (8-11, 5.56 ERA), A.J. Puck (10-4, 4.18 ERA), and Eric Dawson (3-2, 4.58 ERA) where we will hopefully clinch the East.

September 25th, 2018: The Dodgers will be without SP Mike Clevinger for the year with a partially torn UCL. In 20 starts this year, he was 3-9 with a 4.75 ERA and 1.42 WHIP.

The Rays with Manager Don Mattingly, yes, my ex,, have clinched a playoff spot. At 86-69, they will be an AL Wild Card, considering they are 11.5 games out of first. They will look to defend their title. Ironically enough, the last two titles have been one by Florida teams.

We opened the series at Coors field in a likely slugfest between Steve Paustian (10-7, 4.31 ERA, 1.33 WHIP) and Jay Groome (8-11, 5.56 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). Scoring wasn't as common as you'd think, and a three run 7th helped the Rox tame the opener 5-3.

Juan Ramirez left with back tightness, and while he wouldn't head to the DL, I wouldn't play him for likely the rest of the season.

Paustian pitched fine, 6 innings with 5 hits, 2 runs, and 2 strikeouts. Sanschiro Onuma was charged with the loss, 3 hits and 3 runs with a walk in 0.1 innings.

Jarred Kelenic was 2-for-5 with an RBI. Dansby Swanson was 1-for-3 with a walk and two run homer, his first hit with us. Cole Roederer was 1-for-4 with a double.

Royals slugger Chris DeVito hit his 300th career homer. The 31-year-old is a career .261/.327/.538 hitter with 846 RBI's in 3,927 at bats with Kansas City.

September 26th, 2026: The Twins clinched the AL West today. At 84-72, they have a 7 game lead over the White Sox. This will be their 5th straight playoff appearence and 4th straight Central title. The top four in their rotation is insane, and they could actually be a tough team in the AL.

We looked to even the series with Jordan Montgomery (13-4, 3.00 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) taking on A.J. Puk (10-4, 4.18 ERA, 1.11 WHIP). It took 10 innings before Luis Liberto hit a walk-off single on Ignacio Hinojos and the Rockies won 7-6.

Montgomery went 6 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, 3 walks, and just 1 strikeout. Jorge Moya had a rough outing, 0.2 innings with 3 hits and 3 runs. Hinojos allowed the 1 run off 2 hits and 2 walks with a strikeout and fly out.

Dansby Swanson was 1-for-4 with a three run homer. Billy Williamson was 1-for-5 with a steal and run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a double and run scored. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-3 with 2 runs scored, a hit by pitch, and a double. Seth Beer was 1-for-4 with 2 RBI's.

September 27th, 2026: I activated Vladimir Guerrero Jr. from the DL.

But the bigger news is that we clinched the NL East for the 2nd time in Marlins history. At 94-63, we have a 6 game lead over the Braves, our next opponent.

Our last road game of the regular season took place between Mike Soroka (6-10, 4.43 ERA, 1.35 WHIP) and Eric Dawson (3-2, 4.58 ERA, 1.45 WHIP). It was a close one with 19 runs scored, and we edged the hosts 10-9 to escape with the finale.

Soroka was hit pretty hard in likely his last start as a Marlin, 5 runs in 3.2 innings with 6 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Joe Kramer made his big league debut, 1.2 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), 4 walks, and a strikeout. Not the best debut ever, but everyone starts somehwhere. Marc Bjork allowed 2 runs in 0.2 innings with 2 walks, a hit, and srikeout. Joseph Jarneski got the win, Ignacio Hinojos and Hyo-jin Yaung got holds before Alpha Quivers got his 47th career save.

Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was 2-for-3 with a walk, run scored, and RBI in his return to the lineup. IsaacNunez was 1-for-4 with a walk, homer, and 3 RBI's. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, a double, sac-fly, hut by pitch, and an RBI. Billy Williamson was 2-for-5 with 2 runs, a double, and a walk. Daylen Lile was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Seth Beer was 1-for-3 with 2 walks, a double, and a run scored. Austin Hendrick had a pinch hit, 2-run triple and scored in the 8th.

Nationals CF Trejyn Fletcher hit three homers in a 10-6 win over the Phillies.

We're headed home to face the Braves for four, who we have a 50% chance of seeing in the NLDS. We'll face Mack Anglin (6-5, 3.28 ERA), Eric Burtrum (1-1, 1.73 ERA), Ty Madden (11-9, 3.53) and an unknown 4th starter. I'd likely mix things up in each game, but I'd love to win 97 games this year.

September 28th-October 2nd

September 28th, 2026: We remain 2nd in the Power Rankings behind just the Orioles. At 95-63, we are one win away from tieing our single season record for wins.

The Athletics and Braves have clinched playoff spots. The A's at 86-72 are 2.5 games out of first, while Atlanta is 6 games behind us.

We opened our final series of the year, a four game set hostin the Braves, with Jake Florence (8-7, 3.84 ERA, 1.49 WHIP) against Mack Anglin (6-5, 3.28 ERA, 1.21 WHIP). The Braves got the best of us in the opener, winning 7-3.

Florence allowed 4 runs and 5 hits in 5 innings with 3 walks and 6 strikeouts. Marc Bjork allowed 3 runs off 2 hits in an inning with a walk and a strikeout.

Billy Williamson was 3-for-5 with a steal and run scored. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Rodolfo Medrano was 1-for-5 with a solo homer. Cole Roederer was 1-for-2 with a walk, hit by pitch, RBI, and a steal. Isaac Nunez was 1-for-4 with a steal.

September 29th, 2026: Former 2nd Overall pick Jon Sullivan paritally tore his UCL and will miss most of next season as well as the last few games. He was having a rough season with the Cardinals, 1-14 with a 5.58 ERA.

We looked to even the series with Devon Peterson (13-7, 3.97 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) taking on Ty Madden (11-9, 3.53 ERA, 1.19 WHIP). We had a 4-3 lead, but Josh Crusan hit a three run homer off Ernesto Estrella in the top of the 9th. We got 1 back in the bottom half, but dropped this one 6-5.

Peterson did fine, 6.1 innings with 5 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. Ignacio Hinojos, Sanshiro Onuma, and Joseph Jarneski got holds before Alpha Quivers tried to close it in the 9th. He got a strikeout, allowed a hit, and walk, and both those runners scored on the homer. Estrella was charged with 1 of those runs and a hit, but got 2 strikeouts.

Seth Beer was 2-for-3 with a two run homer, a solo homer, and a walk. Deshawn Hardamon was 1-for-3 with a solo homer. Austin Hendrick was 1-for-4 with a solo homer.

September 30th, 2026: We looked to bounce back with Steve Paustian (10-7, 4.25 ERA, 1.31 WHIP) facing rookie Eric Burtrum (1-1, 1.73 ERA, 0.88 WHIP). Down 5-4 in the 9th, Jhon Solarte hit a two run homer off former Marlin Touki Toussaint and we walked off 6-5 winners to tie our single season win record of 96.

Jarred Kelenic left with an injury. Yay...

Paustian went 6.2 innings with 6 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Yaung allowed 2 runs in 0.1 innings with a hit, walk, and strikeout. Igancio Hinojos got the win, 1.2 innings with 3 strikeouts.

Solarte was 2-for-4 with the game winning two run homer. Deshawn Hardamon was also 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-2 with a two run homer before leaving with injury. Isaac Nunez was 0-for-2, but he walked twice, scored twice, and got a steal.

October 1st, 2026: Former Marlin Walker Buehler went the whole year without getting an injury until today, when he was diagnosed with a bone spur in his elboe. He's getting surgery and should be healthy by spring training, and since the Dodgers got eliminated, he won't miss any time. Buehler was 14-8 with a 3.43 ERA and a 1.05 WHIP.

Playoff news: Mariners clinched the AL West, Dodgers eliminated like previously noted, and the Padres clinched a playoff spot, but the division is still up for grabs.

Montgomery was supposed to start today,but I gave him the off day in favor of Brennan Malone (3-0, 3.31 ERA, 1.34 WHIP) who'd be making his first big league start against former Marlin farmhand Ken Harty (7-9, 4.47 ERA, 1.20 WHIP). I also gave a lot of regulars the day off. Tied at two in the 9th, Thomas Dillard hit a pinch hit, walk-off single off Jaime Dougherty, and we won the final game of the season 3-2 to win our 97th game of the year.

Malone was great, 8 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 4 strikeouts. I love him as a reliever, but he may be a decent number four or five starter. Alpha Quivers got the win, pitching the 9th with a hit and 2 strikeouts.

Rodolfo Medrano was 1-for-3 with a two run homer. Malone was 1-for-3 with a run scored. Billy Williamson was 1-for-4 and Jake Taylor was 1-for-3.

Former Marlin SP Joe LaBrie tossed a 1-hit shutout as the Cardinals edged the Brewers 1-0.

October 2nd, 2026: Kelenic will be fine, just a minor oblique strain. The RF finished the year an impressive .308/.405/.504 with 17 homers and 64 RBI's in his first season in Miami. He also stole 21 bases and he tossed 9.1 scorless innings with 5 hits and 9 strikeouts.

Joe Kramer was named Southern League Reliever of the Year. The 23-year-old had 23 saves and a 1.94 ERA with a 1.31 WHIP.

The Padres won the NL West at 88-74, and the Diamondbacks won the Wild Card at 87-75. The playoffs are set, and we'll start the postseason tomorrow!

Wild Card and Divisional Series

October 3rd, 2026: My AAA reliever Blake Treinen won American Confrence Reliever of the Year. The 38-year-old was 5-0 with a 2.14 ERA and he struck out 51 in 54.2 innings.

I also set my playoff roster.

Here's the AL and NL playoff teams:

AL East: Baltimore Orioles (100-62)
AL Central: Minnesota Twins (87-75)
AL West: Seattle Mariners (90-72)
Wild Card Host: Tampa Bay Rays (90-72)
Wild Card Guest: Oakland Athletics (87-75)

NL East: Miami Marlins (97-65)
NL Central: Milwaukee Brewers (92-70)
NL West: San Diego Padres (88-74)
Wild Card Host: Atlanta Braves (91-71)
Wild Card Guest: Arizona Diamondbacks (87-75)

October 4th, 2026: Atlanta hosted Arizona in the Wild Card game to see who would be lucky enough to lose to me in the NLDS. Atlanta looked awful, and they were shutout 6-0. Iestyn Spreckley was 3-for-4 with 2 runs, 4 RBI's, and a homer. Jhoan Duran tossed 7 shutout innings with 4 hits, 2 walks, and 10 strikeouts. Buddy Kennedy was 2-for-3 with a double, homer, 2 RBI's, and a run scored.

October 5th, 2026: The Rays hosted the A's to see who would get swept, I mean, play the Orioles in the ALDS. It was one for the ages, as the A's tied the game up at 5 in the 9th. From the 10th to 14th, neither team scored and really even got anyone on base. In the bottom of the 15th, Gabriel Alejandro Arias hit a walk-off RBI single off Jared Southard, and the defending champions won the thriller 6-5.

Rays starter Christian Scott actually pitched well, just a hit, walk, and runs with 2 strikeouts in 5 innings. Matt Wallner was 2-for-5 with a two run homer and 2 walks. A's RF Juan Santana was 2-for-6 with 2 runs, 2 RBI's, a walk, and homer in the loss.

October 6th, 2026: Luis Ardon was named American Confrence Pitcher of the Year. The 27-year-old was 15-6 with a 3.28 ERA in 25 starts. He was 0-1 with a 3.65 ERA and 1.22 WHIP in 2 starts and 2 relief appearences in the bigs.

Fresh off their Wild Card win, Arizona and Steven Gingery (14-8, 3.92 ERA, 1.26 WHIP) came to town and faced Jake Florence (8-8, 3.94 ERA, 1.50 WHIP). Gingery was 0-2 with a 5.73 ERA against us in the regular season. It was a crazy opener, but the Diamondbacks eventually edged us 8-7 in 11 innings. Man I forgot how bad we are against them sometimes...

I literally had to use every pitcher on the roster, including SP Jordan Montgomery, and 11 pitchers through a pitch. Florence allowed 3 runs in 5 innings off 6 hits, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Igancio Hinojos made the game interesting, 3 runs off 2 hits and 2 walks with just 1 out. Then, seven pitchers combined for 3.2 innings with 3 hits, a walk, and 7 strikeouts. Brennan Malone pitched the 10th, allowinga run and hit off 2 walks with a strikeout. Montgomery was charged with the loss, an inning with a hit, run, and 2 strikeouts. Can't really fault him though...

Cole Roederer was 3-for-5 with 2 runs, an RBI, a sac-bunt, steal, and homer. Seth Beer was 1-for-6 with a solo homer. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-6 with a run scored. Isaac Nunez was 2-for-4 with an RBI double and a walk. Billy Williamson was 2-for-5 with 2 RBI's and a sac-fly. Jhon Solarte was 2-for-5 with a run scored and RBI.

In the other series, the Brewers walked off winners in a 2-1 victory over the Padres. Tyler Solomon hit a walk-off double off Miguel Eduardo Diaz. Brewers starter Alfredo Rivera went 7 innings with 2 hits and 4 strikeouts, while Padres starter MacKenzie Gore went 6 innings with 4 hits, a run, a walk, and 4 strikeouts.

October 7th, 2026: We needed to even the series before it went to Phoenix with Devon Peterson (13-7, 3.98 ERA, 1.26 WHIP) facing Zach Linginfelter (8-10, 5.06 ERA, 1.33 WHIP). Even we could not, and our backs are against the walls as we dropped game two 6-4, at home...

Even worse, Vlad Jr. has back spasms, and will be DTD for 2 weeks. He's playing through it...

Peterson went 5.1 innings with 8 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and a strikeout. Alpha Quivers got the loss, 2 runs (1 earned) in an inning with 2 hits and a strikeout. Jorge Moya struck out the side in the 9th with a hit and walk.

Juan Ramirez was a perfect 5-for-5 with a run scored, 3 doubles, and an RBI in the losing effort. Thomas Dillard was 2-for-3 with a three run homer. Jon Reid was 1-for-3 with a double and run scored off the bench, although he did make an error.

San Diego had better luck then us, and evened the series at 1 with a 2-run 9th to take a 5-4 win.

The Orioles got a six run 6th and beat the Rays 9-2 to open up the ALDS. Drew Ellis was the "top performer" of the day, 2-for-3 with a double, homer, 3 RBI's, 3 runs, and a walk. Tell me, how is that better then Ramirez? Well, I guess he won...

The Mariners won their game against the Twins 5-2 to take a 1-0 lead at home. Former Marlin Griffin Conine got the save.

Octoebr 8th, 2026: Luckily, the NL gets the day off...

The Rays evened the series up with an impressive 3-2 win on the road. Matt Wallner was 3-for-4 with a solo homer.

The Mariners took a nice 2-0 lead with a 7-2 win. Paul Goldschmidt was 3-for-5 with a homer, 3 RBI's, and 2 runs scored while his starter Juan Villasenor tossed 6 innings with 6 htis, a run, and 5 strikeouts in the win.

October 9th, 2026: It's crazy, but this could be it... Steve Paustian (10-7, 4.25 ERA, 1.31 WHIP) took on Jhoan Duran (4-14, 5.64 ERA, 1.42 WHIP, 1-0, 0.00 ERA, 0.86 WHIP). And we didn't score, and got swept with a 2-0 shutout.

Wow...

I really thought this was the best team I constructed in Miami...

Steve Paustian went 7 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 8 strikeouts. It wans't his fault...

Worst part is, we had 7 hits, one more then them...

Vladdy was 1-for-4 with a double. Deshawn Hardamon was 2-for-3 with a walk. Jarred Kelenic was 1-for-3 with a walk.

But it doens't matter, we got swept by the Diamondbacks...

San Diego took a 2-1 lead with a 10-4 win over the Brewers. Jeremy Green was 1-for-4 with a wlak, 2 runs scored, and a grand slam.

October 10th, 2026: Arizona will be facing the Padres, after they beat the Brew Crew 4-1.

The Rays took a 2-1 lead with a 6-5 win over the Orioels after a walk-off Zack Humpreys 2-run homer. The former Marlin was 3-for-3 with a pair of doubles, the homer, and 4 RBI's. Luke Leto was 2-for-5 with 2 homers, a solo shot and two run shot, in a losing effort.

The Mariners finished the sweep with a 3-1 win over the Twins. Luis Flores tossed 6 innings with 4 hits, a run, 3 walks, and 4 strikeout sin the win.

I still can't believe we got swept...

October 11th, 2026: The Rays scored 4 in the first, 3 in the second, and then 5 in the third in a 13-2 win to shock the powerhouse Orioles to advance to the ACLS to play the Mariners. Rays hitters Tim Green (3-for-4, 2 homers, 5 RBI's, 3 runs, and a walk) and Freudis Nova (2-for-5, double, homer, 4 RBI's, run scored) were the two top performers. Drew Ellis was a perfect 3-for-3 with a double, RBI, and run scored in a losing effort. Pitching hurt the O's...

I'll finish the rest of the playoffs next...

Championship Series and World Series

October 14th, 2026: I activated Ben Popkin from the DL. Yay...

The NLCS started today, with the Padres hosting the Diamondbacks. It was a close one, but the Padres edged the Snakes 6-5 to get revenge for me. Matt Olson was 1-for-3 with a solo homer, 2 runs scored, and a walk in the win. Arizona 1B Bryson Scott was 2-for-4 with a double, RBI, 2 runs, and a walk. 2B Jasrado Chisholm was 1-for-2 with a two run homer.

October 15th, 2026: It took 12 innings, but Arizona got 2 in the 12th to tie the series at 1. Both starters pitched really well. Arizona's Steven Gingery tossed 7.1 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, and 3 strikeouts. San Diego's Dallas Woolfolk tossed 7 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts.

The Rays won the ALCS opener 6-3 over the host Mariners. Jacob Faria tossed 5 innings with 5 hits, 2 runs, and 11 strikeotus in the win.

October 16th, 2026: With the NL games off, the Rays took a 2-0 lead with a 5-2 win over the Mariners. Brendan McKay tossed 7 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, and just 1 strikeout to get the win. Rays 2B Nick Solak was 2-for-2 with 2 doubles, 2 RBI's, and a run scored. Mariners 3B Joe Rizzo was 1-for-3 with a two run homer in the loss.

October 17th, 2026: Back to NL action, the stupid Diamondbacks took a 2-1 series lead with a 6-4 win. Despite Chris Rodriguez's 5 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, and 6 strikeouts, the Rockies pen couldn't hold off Arizona. Jim Hancock (2-for-4, double, and two run homer) and Austin Hays (2-for-3, RBI, run, and walk) were key parts of the offense.

October 18th 2026: Arizona is just 1 game away from the World Series, as they shut the Padres out 1-0 and will host game 5 tomottow. Nick Pivetta tossed 6 innings with 3 hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Padres starter Charles King tossed 5 innings with 3 hits, 5 walks, and 5 strikeouts in a no decision.

Chris Sale tossed 5.1 innings with 4 hits and 6 strikeouts in a 3-0 Rays win over the Mariners. 3-0 is also their lead in the series, and the 2026 World Champions look like they will make the World Series to defned their title.

October 19th, 2026: Both the Padres and Mariners were on the brink of elimination. Both would live to see another day.

The Padres will head home after an 8-2 win. Matt Olson was 3-for-5 with 3 homers, 4 RBI's, and 3 runs scored. Bobby Witt was 2-for-5 with 2 homers and 3 RBI's. Both guys single handedly beat the D'Backs, who were actually leading 2-0.

Paul Goldschmidt was 3-for-5 with 2 homers, 3 RBI's, and a walk as the Mariners beat the Rays 5-4 in 11 innings. They still have to win another in Tampa before heading back home, and they were down to their final 3 outs before they tied the game at 5 in the 9th.

October 20th, 2026: It's a weird day to do it, but the Astros fired manager A.J. Hinch today. After leading the team to the playoffs from 2018-2023, he had the first losing season with the team this year. In his career, he's 889-782 with three Manager of the Year Awards and he should catch on somewhere else soon.

October 20th, 2026: With just the AL today, Tampa shut the Mariners out 6-0 to advance to the World Series. Jacob Faria tossed 6.1 shutout innings with 4 hits, a walk, and 9 strikeouts. Travis Swaggerty was 2-for-3 with a double, 2 runs, and 2 walks. Mike Siani was 2-for-3 with an RBI and 2 walks.

October 21st, 2026: Will the World Series be a 1998 expansion battle? Maybe, but we' have to play game 7 as the Padres made up for blowing the game in the 9th as Yerdel Vargas hit a walk off single in the 10th off Josh Brown. Dallas Wollfolk went 6 innings with 7 hits, 4 runs, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Bobby Witt Jr. was 2-for-4 with a three run homer, 2 runs, and a walk in the win. Jim Hancock was 3-for-4 with a double, homer, 3 RBI's, and 2 runs in the loss.

October 22nd, 2026: San Diego battled back, and won the finale 7-1 to face the Rays in the World Series. Chris Rodriguez got the win, 5.1 innings with 5 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Bobby Witt Jr. was 2-for-3 with 2 homers, 3 RBI's, 2 runs, and 2 walks. Jeison Rosario was 2-for-4 with 2 solo homers.

The Padres haven't made the playoffs since 2023 win they won the World Series, and will look for their second title.

October 24th, 2026: The Rays hosted the Padres in the World Series, but the visitors took a quick 2-0 lead. That's all they'd score, and the Rays, with help from a 6 run 5th, won the opener 9-2. Brendan McKay settled down after the first, finishing 7 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, and 12 strikeouts. Grayson Byrd was 1-for-2 with a homer, 2 runs, and 2 walks and teammate Freudis Nova was 1-for-4 with a grandslam.

October 25th, 2026: The Padres managed to even the series with a 7-1 win. They broke through with 5 in the 8th. Matt Olson was 2-for-4 with 2 homers, 4 RBI's, and a walk. He has 9 homers in this postseason, one away from Seth Beer's record of 10. Charles King got the win, 6 innings with 3 hits, a run, a walk, and 3 strikeouts. Rays starter Jacob Faria pitched well, just a run and 4 hits with 7 strikeouts in 5 innings.

October 27th, 2026: It took 14 innings, but the Rays took a 2-1 lead with a 5-4 win. Freudis Nova went 4-for-6 with a double, solo homer, and 2 runs scored. Chris Sale went 6 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs, and 7 strikeouts, but of course, got a no decision. Padres starter and former Ray Dallas Woolfolk went 5 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 3 strikeotus.

October 28th, 2026: The Rays took a 3-1 lead with an 8-3 wi. Chris Archer allowed 3 (1 earned) in the 2nd, but finished 6 innings with 6 hits, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Tim Green was 2-for-4 with a double, 3 runs, and a walk.

October 29th, 2026: Is this it? Not if MacKenzie Gore has anything to say about it, and he tossed 5 innings with 5 hits, a run, a walk, and 6 strikeouts. Jordan Groshans hit a pinch hit 2-run homer for the Padres in the 7th to take a 3-1 lead. Yusniel Diaz was also 3-for-4 with a double and 2 runs scored as the Padres held off the Rays 5-2 as the series transitions to Tampa.

November 1st, 2026: Can you say repeat? The Rays went back-to-back with a 7-5 win at the Trop to crown themselves the 2026 World Series Champions. Jacob Faria got the win, 5 innings with 3 hits, 2 runs, a walk, and 10 strikeouts. Matt Wallner was 3-for-4 with 2 homers and 4 RBI's. Bobby Witt Jr. was 2-for-4 with a two run homer and 2 runs scored in the loss. Matt Olson hit homer #11, and broke Seth Beer's postseason record.

On to the offseason, where a lot of changes, both in the league and on the team, will take place!

Awards, Arbitration, and Pre-Free Agency

From every offseason starting now, I'll start with the "League Evolution" phase now that I am preparing for expansion.

First, I have decided to lower inflation to 1% to 3%.

Next comes to minor league expansion. The following teams will be added as unaffiliated teams:

Clinton Pilots (AAA-International League)
Huntsville Stars (AA-Eastern League)
Albany Senators (AAA-International League)
Scranton Miners (AA-Eastern League)
St. Paul Saints (AAA-International League)
Little Rock Travelers (AA-Southern League)
Winnipeg Goldeyes (AAA-International League)
Memphis Blues (AA-Southern League)

The following affiliates will be adjusted
Scranton WB RailRiders: Wilkes-Barre RailRiders

Perhaps you can guess who the four expansion teams, or at least three of them are?

On to business:

November 2nd, 2026: So my budged was cut to $184 million, and that means I'm going to have to cut a lot of payroll...

Bench Coach Arnie Beyeler and Pitching Coach Juan Nieves have announced thier retirement. My contract was extended for two years at $1.7 million per year. A lot of personell wouldn't re-sign, so I have a lot of moves to do. I promoted AAA Manager Chad Epperson to Bench Coach.

After just 1 year, the Mets fired manager Eric Owens. He went 66-96 in his only year as a big league manager.

The Dodgers fired manager Denis Phipps. It was his first season with the Dodgers, and he was 84-78, and honestly, didn't deserve to get fired.

Here's the arbitration numbers:

SP Steve Paustian (1-year, $2,980,000)
SP Devon Peterson (4-years, $38,540,000)
RP Igancio Hinojos (1-year, $1,970,000)
RP Sanshiro Onuma (Traded to Baltimore for RP Mike Cowell)
RP Ben Popkin (Traded to Pittsburgh for RF Jaheim Tyes)
CL Alpha Quivers (1-year, $9,670,000)
C Thomas Dillard (1-year, $21,620,000)
1B Seth Beer (1-year, $11,980,000)
2B Deshawn Hardamon (1-year, $6,200,000)
SS Jordy Barley (Traded to the Mariners for RP Jared Taylor, CL Esteban Miranda, and RP Jimmy Chapman)
SS Isaac Nunez (1-year, $4,120,000)
LF Cole Roederer (1-year, $2,750,000)
LF Billy Williamson (1-year, $6,960,000)
RF Jared Kelenic (1-year, $9,690,000)

I also offered Mike Soroka the extremely high qualifying offer, and I'm afraid he's going to accept it...

The Mets acquired 1B Spencer Jones and RHP Juan Coira from the Phillies for RHP Francisco Morales. Absolute steal for the Mets, as Morales is the worst player in the deal.

November 10th, 2026: Isaac Nunez was named Gold Glove Winner for shortstop. It's teh second in his young career.

November 11th, 2026: LAA CL Craig Kimbrel (19, 124) and COL CL Juan Toribio (24, 136) were named Reliever of the Year). Alpha Quivers (4, 53) finished in third.

November 12th, 2026: I hited legendary pitching coach Dave Eiland to a 2-year, $700,000 per year contract. He was the Mets pitching coach from 2018-2026 and other then last year, the team ERA was always below 4.00.

RF Jarred Kelenic won a Platinum Stick.

November 13th, 2026: BAL 2B Luke Leto (30, 150) and CHC RF Ben Henning (30, 150) were both unanimous Rookie of the Years.

November 14th, 2026: Tampa manager Don Mattingly and Miami manage Aaron Boone won Manager of the Year. They are the only two managers I have ever had.

Novemebr 15th, 2026: SEA SP Sergio Barreto (30, 210) and PHI SP Jim Gilbert (30, 210) were unanimous Cy Young winners. Alpha Quivers (11) got a few votes.

November 16th, 2026: BAL SS Logan Davidson (23, 385) and SD 1B Matt Olson (19, 357) won MVP. Vladimir Guerrro Jr (56) and Jarred Kelenic (5) got a few votes.

November 18th, 2026: I acquired the heir to Thomas Dillard C Jackson Miller from the Phillies for SP Sergio Monreal.

Miller, 24, is rated a 2.5/4.5 with elite catching defense, speed similar to Dillard, and plus-plus contact and eye. He doesn't have much power, but the lefty/righty will develop into a great extra base hitter and top catcher in the league. The former 13th overall pick from Oregon State was named the #47 prospect in the league.

November 24th, 2026: Mike Soroka thankfully filed for Free Agency, which will start tomorrow!

Sadly, I have no money to spend, and need to cut possibly $50 million. Fun...

That means likely no Vladimir Guerrero Jr...

Free Agency Pt. 1

November 25th, 2026: Free agents file today, but I doubt I'll be able to sign a single one. Here's who OSA ranks as the top 10 in no perticular order:

LHP Madison Bumgarner
RHP Luis Severino
1B Cody Bellinger
RF Austin Hays
RHP Edwin Diaz
RHP Jandel Gustave
2B Brice Turang
LHP MacKenzie Gore
CF Jeison Rosario
C Francisco Mejia

It's a really good class...

I may or may not have to cut $50 million in salary. Yikes...

November 29th, 2026: Hall of Fame voting starts today, and here is my ballot:

3B Adrian Beltre
2B Robinson Cano
SP Zack Greinke
SP Felix Hernandez
LF Matt Holliday
RF Nick Markakis
C Joe Mauer
CL Joe Nathan
SP CC Sabathia
SP Justin Verlander

Mauer better get in this time...

December 3rd, 2026: The Tigers signed star C Francisco Mejia to a 5-year, $107,200,000 contract. The switch hitter was a career .301/.355/.479 hitter with 144 homers and 552 RBI's as an Indian.

December 4th, 2026: I made a "big" deal, acquiring 1B Sean Taylor, LF Juan Morales, RF Clint Springer, and LHP Jake Hughes from the Giants for LF Cole Roederer, RHP Josh Barrett, and 1B Ashton McGee.

Taylor, 23, is a bat first, first basemen with massive power and contact abilities. He's basically going to be Seth Beer in two years, but he has absolutely no defensive skills. He was the 37th Overall Pick in 2024 out of Valdosta State.

Morales, 22, is a speedy outfielder from the Dominican Republic. He's a great base stealer, plays top notch defense in left, and has a decent bat. He'll hit for a high average with 15 homers a year and he won't strike out too much either.

Springer, 21, is a extra base hit threat with plus-plus gap power ability and a 100 rated arm. He's not the best defender, but he's a fast switch hitter that will give you a good share of longballs. The former 5th Round Pick will strikeout a lot, but he's got upside in a big league outfield.

Hughes, 22, was selected in the 2nd Round this year out of Rutgers. He's got an elite curveball and a plus plus fastball that hits 94-96 easily. He's got great stuff, plus control, and decent movement, and can fill a big league bullpen very soon.

As interesting as these prospects were, sadly, it was just to free up 3 million in payroll. That's what I have to do...

December 5th, 2026: The Cubs traded RHP Tyago Vieira, RHP Luis Guerrero, and LHP Rodolfo Esquiling to the Reds for LF Taylor Trammell. I like this ideal for the Reds, but the Cubs needed to cut salary too.

December 10th, 2026: The Blue Jays signed LHP Madison Bumgarner to a 3-year, $57 million contract. A Giant his whole career, MadBum has been with them since 2009. In his storied career, he's 180-154 with a 3.42 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 2,627 strikeouts in 2,919.2 innings.

December 12th, 2026: To kick off the Winter Meetings, I acquired SP Cho-yeong Hyoun and $6 million in cash for Jorge Moya (35% retained) and LF Ken Adeniran.

Hyoun, 23, filed from South Korea last offseason, and went 5-15 with a 4.62 ERA and 1.36 WHIP in 32 starts. The groundballer gave up a league leading 35 homers, however, but was a little overrmatched. Extremely talented, he's a 3/4* with three plus-plus pitches, including a change up with elite potential. He's got plus movement and control as well, and dials his fastball up in the high 90s.

That wasn't the only move of the day, the Orioles signed top International SP Sergio Garza to a 5-year, $87 million contract. The 26-year-old Cuban (who's part French) is a future superstar. An extreme groundballer, he's got elite stuff with three plus pitches, (except a 18/24 change up he migt want to give up), plus-plus movement, and plus control.

The Tigers aquired 3B Tyler McKenzie from the White Sox for RHP Jonathan Chott. It's an even swap.

Colorado sent former Marlin minor leaguer SS Logan Warmoth to the Reds with LHP Caleb Kerins for RHP Cristian Sanchez and CF Juan Alarcon. It's a pretty fair deal as well.

I added SP Leonel Olvera to the 40 to protect him from the Rule-5 draft.

December 13th, 2026: Boston signed top CF Jeison Rosario to a 7-year, $144 million contract. The former Padre is a career .284/.355/.441 hitter with 95 homers, 430 RBI's, and 115 stolen bases.

The Rangers signed RF Austin Hays to a 2-year, $22.5 million contract. The Oriole and Diamondback is a career .279/.321/.480 hitter with 218 homers and 680 RBI's.

The Cardinals made two trades, first acquiring RF Kyle Hess from the Reds for RHP Duari Moreta, RHP Ethan Wood, and cash considerations. I like this deal for the Reds. The Cards also sent C Victor Caratini and LHP Bobby Silvers to the Braves for RHP Dusty Powell. It's a pure salary dump, and a steal for Atlanta.

I made a blockbuster trade with the Cubs, sending 1B Seth Beer, CF Rodolfo Medrano, and RP Josh Watson their way for 3B Mac Horvath.

It really doesn't get much better then Horvath, an elite infielder with great speed, great contact, and an elite eye. He's a career .255/.353/.369 hitter with 27 homers, 154 RBI's, and 56 steals while being a great leader in the clubhouse. He's also making just $3,280,000 this year, and will currently slot at first base. Although the hot corner looks really nice for him...

December 14th, 2026: The Braves sent C Ricardo A. Rodriguez to the Mets for RHP Drew Smith and RHP Steve Hansen. An absolute steal for Atlanta...

Mega deal time: I sent 3B Vladimir Guerrero Jr. (45% retained) and SP Josh Nix to the Royals for CF Sergio Serrano and 1B Chris DeVito.

It's sad to see Vladdy leave, but I needed to free up the salary. I then flipped DeVito to the Orioles for SS Nesty Cirese.

Starting with Serrano, a 19-year-old LF, he's rated a 4.5* potential with elite defensive skills, elite speed, elite gap power, and plus contact. He was selected 15th Overall in 2025, and "Turbo" looks like a future star.

Cirese, 24, is a 2.5/3.5 SS who can play a little bit of everything. He's super fast, a solid defender, and has a great eye, but he's not the best hitter ever. He's also fragile, but is controllable for a long time and is a decent trade piece of his own.

I'm almost free from my budget, and really all I need is a third basemen, although I can do a little shuffling to get one.

December 15th, 2026: The Winter Meetings ended quiet today, but I couldn't let that happen.

I made some noise, sending LF Billy Willamson and C Juan Romo to the Astros for LHP Luis Alcantra, 2B Chris Charvat, SS Luis Monreal, CF Juan Navarro, and 2B Jon Carpenter.

Alcantra, 25, is someone I've been looking at for a long time. He's rated a 3.5/4.5 as a RP and 2.5/3.5 as a SP. He reminds me a lot of Ignacio Hinojos and Brennan Malone. He's got two elite pitches and a plus-plus pitch, and can reach 100 with his fastball. He's got solid stamina, plus-plus control, and plus movement. The 6'6'' southpaw was a 3rd round pick back in 2020.

Charvat, 18, can play a little bit of everything, has elite speed, and plus-plus contact and eye. He will strike out a bit, and basically just hits the ball all around and through the infield. He was selected in the 19th round this year, but has grown a lot already.

Monreal, 19, is an elite defender at short with blinding speed and a knack for hitting extra base hits. The Dominican righty has decent pop for a teen, but needs to work on not striking out too much.

Navarro, 21, is an elite center fielder with elite speed and range. He'll steal a ton of bases, make decent contact with a decent eye, but he won't hit any homers. A 16th rounder in 2025, he's also developed well, and has a great mentatlity.

Carpenter, 19, is a switch hitting speedester who can play a decent middle infield. He's got plus-plus contact and a solid eye, but also won't hit many homers. He was selected in the 10th round last year.

All the prospects are at least a 2.5* potential.

I'm still in the red though...

I have no clue how I'm going to cut salary now too...

December 17th, 2026: The Mariners signed 2B Brice Turang to a 4-year, $20.6 million per year deal. The lefty spent his full career with Arizona until now, hitting .283/.373/.403 with 64 homers, 340 RBI's, and 111 steals.

December 23rd, 2026: Toronto signed LF Derek Fisher to a 4-year, $83.2 million contract. He rejoined the Jays, after spending three years with them. He's a career .274/.375/.494 hitter with 264 homers and 847 RBI's.

December 24th, 2026: Today is the Rule-5 Draft! I had to protect Jackson Miller who I almost would have lost. I lost three guys, Hunter Perdue, Chris Dito, and Scott Kingery before my pick happened.

I took 3B Eric Kisela, a 1.5/4 from the Angels. He's got elite gap power and an elite arm with plus contact, eye, and power. He's a former 2nd Rounder with great potential.

December 27th, 2026: The Dodgers signed SP Luis Severino to a 5-year, $85 million contract. A 5-time All Star with the Yankees, he was 119-105 with a 4.04 ERA and 1.19 WHIP, and has started 30 or more games every year since 2017 when he became a full time starter.

December 29th, 2026: The Yankees signed star Cuban pitcher Juan "Mr. Miami" Jacobo to a 4-year, $91.2 million contract. At 27 year old, he's a 4/4.5 with elite stuff to go with average movement and control. He throws high 90s with three elite pitchers and a decent forkball.

December 30th, 2026: I claimed 3B Josh Moore off waivers sform the Mets.

We'll pick this up next year!

Free Agency Pt. 2

January 4th, 2027: It took a bit, but I finally, finally got in the green by sending Hyo-jin Yaung, Brennan Malone, and Luis Monreal to the Astros for 1B Yordan Alvarez (50% retained).

Alvarez isn't really "good" and rated just a 2.5*, but I can try flipping him or just play him at first, shifting Mac Horvath to third. I'm going to miss Malone, but I really need to get back in the green.

January 5th, 2027: Mike Soroka signed a 7-year, $89.3 million contract with the Rangers, netting me a compensation pick. The 29-year-old has career numbers of 94-75 with a 3.97 ERA and 1.21 WHIP.

January 23th, 2027: Adrian Beltre (81.8) and CC Sabathia (78.3) were inducted to the hall in their 2nd and 4th years. Joe Mauer (70.5), Robinson Cano (64.6), Justin Verlander (62.8), Zack Greinke (61), and Matt Holliday (56.5) were all close.

I sent SP Luis Ardon to the Mets for 1B Spencer Jones.

Jones, 25, is a lefty with massive power and reminds me a lot of Seth Beer minus the outfield skill. He played with the Phillies in parts of the past two year, hitting .206/.281/.333 with 3 homers and 14 RBI's. The former 4th round pick seems likely to start at first for me.

January 14th, 2027: The Pirates signed CL Devan Watts to a 3-year, $27.6 million contract. Spending his whole career with the Braves, we earned 107 saves with a 3.56 ERA and 1.24 WHIP.

January 17th, 2027: I managed to dump the rest of 1B Yordan Alvarez's contract on the Yankees for 2B Antoni Flores.

Flores, 26, is an elite defender with decent speed, but nothing more then a bench player. But he saves me a ton of money.

January 19th, 2027: The Blue Jays signed RHP Jandel Gustave to a 3-year, $35.2 million contract. Finally security for the righty, who spent the past five years with five different teams. In his career, he has 158 saves with a 2.87 ERA and 1.18 WHIP to go with 763 srikeouts in 603 innings.

January 20th, 2027: The Giants signed RHP Mashiaro Tankaka to a 2-year, $9.7 million per year contract. He's 144-120 with a 4.22 ERA and 2,055 strikeouts in 2,252.1 innings.

January 22nd, 2027: The Jays signed SP MacKenzie Gore to a 4-year, $117,700,000 contract. The former Padre southpaw is 54-57 with a 3.90 ERA and 1.18 WHIP in 194 games (171 starts).

January 23rd, 2027: Boston signed 1B Cody Bellinger to a 6-year, $237 million contract. One of the best players in the league, he's a career .281/.381/.593 hitter with 481 homers and 1,284 RBI's, leading the league in multiple categories in multiple seasons.

January 24th, 2027: I claimed Steve Keller off waivers from Atlanta and outrighted him to A Greensboro.

The preseason is next! I'm not going to say I'm worried about the team, but I'm skeptical about our success for the upcoming season.

Preseason

February 2nd, 2027: The preseason started today, and my owner "generously" raised my budget from $184 million to $190 million. Yay...

The MLB also announced the active roster limit will move from 25 to 26 players. After tinkering with the idea in the minors, the MLBA decided it would be a good move for the teams and the players.

I also placed Mason Barnett on the DL, who still had about 9 monhts of recovery time left. I'm shocked he lasted on the 40 the entire offseason.

February 5th, 2027: The Rangers signed LHP Wandy Peralta to a 1-year, $2.6 million contract. He has a career 4.10 ERA in 753 relief appearences with 75 saves.

February 6th, 2027: The Astros acquired 1B Luken Baker from the Dodgers for RHP Tanner Anderson and RHP Sergio Liciaga. I like this deal for the Dodgers.

February 8th, 2027: The Braves signed SP Justin Dunn to a 2-year, $20.6 million contract. In his career, he is 64-50 with a 4.36 ERA and 1.30 WHIP.

February 10th, 2027: I signed RHP Riley Ferrell to a 2-year, $3.4 million per year deal, with the second a team option. The 33-year-old has tossed 575 relief innings with Houston and St. Louis, striking out 603 hitters and he has a 4.99 ERA and 1.46 WHIP. While those numbers are a little concerning, he's an extreme groundballer with plus-plus stuff, plus movement, and plus control. He's poised to break out, and it's a bargain contract.

February 21st, 2027: After a long break with no news, the Royals sent 2B Jeremy Eierman to the Yankees for 1B John Malcom and 1B Luis Puerta. Malcom is the the only of three three players that never played in my organization. I like this deal for the Royals.

February 27th, 2027: I spent a ton of time working on a deal with the Dodgers, and we finally agreed on a three for one swap. I sent them RF Austin Hendrick for 3B Chris Reed, RF Chad Avant, and RHP Chris Cervantes.

Reed, 30, is the centerpiece of the deal. Rated a 4*, he's got an elite eye, massive power, and solid contact. The lefty/righty isn't the best fielder out there, but he definitely makes up for it with the bat. He's a career .248/.353/.476 hitter with 107 homers and 280 RBI's in 1,800 at bats. The former Rockies 13th Round Pick has came a long way, due in part to his extremely hard working nature. He'll fill my third base gap, shifting Horvath to first.

Avant, 24, is another big league piece, a corner outfielder with an absolute cannon in right field. He can't really play center, but the lefty has a plus-plus eye and plus power. The former 29th Rounder by the Phillies, he bounced a round a ton before sticking with the Dodgers. Rated a 2.5/3, he was 4-for-8 in his first big league cup of coffee last season.

Cervantes, 24, is a minor league reliever with elite stuff. A ground ball reliever who can consistently toss 96-98 with his plus-plus sinker, Cervantes needs to work on his control before coming a top pen arm, but he's got enough talent to be a solid middle reliever as his floor. He was selected by the Dodgers 42nd overall in 2024.

Spring training starts tomorrow!

Spring Training

February 28th, 2027: Spring Training starts today, and I called up a bunch of non-roster invitees.

March 1st, 2027: March started with a pair of trades. The Dodgers sent RF/P Shoehi Ohtnai to the Reds for 3B Matt Duffy and RHP Joe Symons. It's an even enough deal.

The Red Sox acquired SS Nick Gordon from the Giants for C Will D. Smith, SS Gene Faller, and almost $8 million in cash. I really life this dedal for the Giants.

March 4th, 2027: The always injured Mike Clevinger will miss all of 2027 with a torn flexor tendon in his elbow. He signed with Arizona in the offseason.

March 9th, 2027: The Blue Jays signed former Marlin 3B Jose Ramirez to a 1-year, $7.2 million contract. He spent the last season with Boston, hitting .264 with 12 homers and 34 RBI's.

March 11th, 2027: The Red Sox will be without SP D.J. Jefferson for the year with a torn ulnar collateral ligament. The former 51st Overall Pick has been a Red Sock his whole career, with a 20-34 record and 4.55 ERA.

The Braves signed CL Drew Smith to a 2-year, $2,760,000 per year extension. He's making $6.3 million this season, and Atlanta acquired him from the Mets in December. A Met his whole career, he had 41 saves with a 3.51 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 496 strikeouts in 469 innings.

March 15th, 2027: The Padres will be without 2B Xavier Edwards for the year with a torn anterior cruciate ligament. He's lead the league in steals for four consecutive seasons, and has 286 in his career. Hopefully for him, this won't hurt him too much for stealingn bases.

The Mets signed 1B Billy Davis to a 1-year, $3,640,000 contract. Somehow he was a free agent that no one noticed, and is rated a 3.5/4, but has just 25 at bats in the big leagues.

March 29th, 2027: Rays LHP Andrew Chafin is out for the year with a stretched elbow ligament. This would've been his first year with the Rays.

The Dodgers lost RHP Jason Bilous for the year with a torn elbow ligament. He tossed 7.2 innings with the Dodgers last year, but spent the previous two seasons with Arizona.

April 1st, 2027: With no more Spring Training games, I used today to set up my active roster.

Here's the first 26 man roster:

SP Jake Florence (4/4)
SP Igancio Hinojos (3/4)
SP Jordan Montgomery (3/3)
SP Steve Paustian (3.5/4)
SP Devon Peterson (3.5/3.5)
RP Luis Alcantra (3.5/4.5)
RP Marc Bjork (3.5/3.5)
RP Ernesto Estrella (3.5/3.5)
RP Riley Ferrell (3.5/3.5)
RP Cho-yeong Hyoun (3.5/4.5)
RP Danny Niewald (2.5/3)
RP Jared Taylor (3.5/3.5)
CL Alpha Quivers (5/5)
C Thomas Dillard (5/5)
C Jake Taylor (2/2.5)
1B Spencer Jones (3.5/3.5)
1B Mac Horvath (4/4)
2B Deshawn Hardamon (3.5/4)
3B Eric Kisela (1.5/3.5)
3B Chris Reid (4/4)
SS Isaac Nunez (4/4)
SS Jon Reid (1.5/3.5)
LF Daylen Lile (3/4.5)
LF Juan Ramirez (4/5)
CF Jhon Solarte (2.5/2.5)
RF Jarred Kelenic (4/4)

I have no idea how this roster is going to play out, but I'm excited for the start of the season! I can add an outfielder or a few pitchers to the roster.
