First outing after his tenth all-star game Alberto Barron records his 200th win. After many years as a starter, Barron continues to shine in relief (despite the Royals looking like relegation fodder) and recorded his ninth career save next time out.

Louis Tucker pitches a perfect game against Sioux City to cap an exciting series.

Jan 15 2028: MacArthur Park - by bilbo on July 2nd, 2016

It's scary. Last year's win was a magnificent achievement but possibly unique.

We know that we have some excellent young players: pitching ace Alberto Barron, first-base Jose Casanova plus outfielder and league MVP Ricky Chandler.

We also had a good but aging infield Maldonado, Felix and Corona. Then there were the contributions from veteran signings Fields, McMahon, Roy and Barber and then there's the aging bullpen too.

In order to repeat it is imperative that the front office bring in veterans that are immediately effective and coaching staff to bring on new talent quickly.

Otherwise it will be as if someone left the cake out in the rain and we're worried because it took so long to bake it and we may never have that recipe again.

However, no one can take the 2027 championship season from us - time for our happy dance! :)
