Sep 30 2040: 3 way pennant race. - by Noodle on May 15th, 2019
Ladies and gentlemen your Rancho Cucamonga Chili Peppers find themselves in way 3 way clash with Sioux City and Burlington for tops in the west of div 3.4. Can the Chili Peppers get back to there former glory and battle all the way back to div 2? Only time will tell.
Oct 16 2038: Division clinched! - by Noodle on December 16th, 2018
After a dream 2038 where absolutely everything went right for Rancho Cucamonga we are finally moving up again to division 3! Having the luxury of having a big lead since the all star game,GM Noodle has been preparing for the future. We are not content in just moving up as the Chilli Peppers believe that they can compete for the div 3 crown next season as well.
Nov 04 2036: 2036 season. - by Noodle on July 19th, 2018
Will folks the 2036 season has come and gone. Again the Chilli Peppers found themselves in finishing the season in 2nd place. GM Noodle was quoted as saying during the post season press report. I believe we had the best team on paper. Unfortunately due to our slow start to the season we were unable to catch Sedona as they were red hot in the 2nd half. Congratulations to Sedona and I wish them luck in div 3.
As for next season due to the inexplicable sluggishness of Ferrari and Conley's development GM Noodle will be evaluating there position on the team. We are currently getting no production out of SS or LF.
Starting pitching will be needed as always. Alvin Hanson is starting to age. Messina needs to take the next step up and and be the teams #1.
Long time closer Macho Man Roy Savage is likely pitched in his last game in the majors. He should go down as the greatest closer in Rancho Cucamonga history. I'd argue one of the greatest 11 pot pitcher in Broken Bat!!! Cooperstown awaits him.
After a solid rookie campaign expect to see flamethrower Oscar Carrick take over the role as closer next season. He should garner some ROY votes.
And finally the search for a new coach will take place next season as Joe Clay who is approaching 70 will be looking to retire I the near future. So unfortunately for GM Noodle will be probing potential candidates to take over the helm.
Nov 01 2035: End of season report. - by Noodle on May 3rd, 2018
After finishing the 2035 campaign with a solid 2nd place in the West, GM Noodle is happy with the direction the team is headed in for the first time in a few seasons.
Long time stalwart Harold Morgan is set to call it a career. Rafael Messina looks primed to take up spot in the rotation.
Both catchers will be the roster will be turning 35 next season so they will have to be evaluated.
Either then thatgoing forward it's internal improvements that are going to be needed if this team wants to get back to div 3.
Oct 22 2033: Another disappointing season. - by Noodle on October 2nd, 2017
As the 2033 season wraps up Rancho Cucamonga ended up in a transition year. As the core started to age the strategy at the start of the season was to retool and take a shot at winning the division.
Unfortunately father time took his toll on some of the established veterans as there bats went silent. The veterans that GM Noodle signed in the offsets on didn't pan out either.
This forced plan B. Bring up the kids and get there feet wet in the majors. Predictably this ended up with mixed results but should bear well for the future.
So down to division 4 I go where at least now I should be better positioned to field a competitive team.
