I ranked all teams in each category. The AL teams are ranked separately from the NL teams. 16 teams obviously in each league.
Owner: Phillies26(32nd Season)
Owner: jbburner(32nd Season)
Press Release- I see the Firestorm as a .500 team at best. There has been a lack of hitting here which hasn't been improved and pitching which is average. Win/Loss prediction: 76-86
Press Release- I am predicting a .500 season for my team. I signed some decent free agents, but my best young players are still very young. Next season, I fully expect to be competing for a playoff spot.
Wichita DwArf'y Mojados
Owner: Jibe(9th Season)
Press Release- We have very high hopes going into season 32. I believe the change in ball park from Wichita to San Juan will lead to great things. I also believe that a great number of my players will be having comeback years. Headed by Rickie Halama and Tony Caballero. Also Jeimer Parra and Eli Duran who needs to show more than just promise this season. One guy who I expect to continue on the path of greatness is Eli Cruz who has HOF written all over his future. The new park should only help him.Pitching should be better as well. Headed by Geronimo Estrada and Rondell Collins. We could use better years by Eddie Plant and Javier Beltran. The pen should be good again with Dave Coleman and Juan Sierra. My big FA splash was getting Moises Olmedo and Roberto Lopez to come to San Juan. They better do well with all of the money I spent on them. I just hope that they don't spend all of their time in the hot tub recovering from injuries. The negative of this team is D, specifically a lack of a true CFer. We will need to out score the opposition and pitch our butts off because the D is suspect. SS should be very good with Raphael Santana leading the charge, but his bat is not the best.
So my prediction is a first place finish in my division and a 96-66 W/L record. 96 wins would set a franchise record.
There are some very good teams in the NL but I believe that this one is also among the best so I have a WS appearance in the back of my mind for season 32.
On paper, San Juan has one of the fiercest looking teams I've seen. They are loaded from top to bottom. Impressively they didn't sacrifice defense to get hitters. Should be a serious World Series contender. I think Jacksonville will toy with the .500 mark and take second. Their impressive starting rotation should carry them a little bit. Philadelphia should win about 70 games, they are carried by their bullpen. And Cincinnati should bring up the rear with wins in the 60's in another rebuilding season.
