Jan 15 2026: Farewell, Ricky Mitchell - by Dcmrulz on January 23rd, 2016
We honor the accomplishments that Ricky Mitchell have provided to the Catfish these 15 seasons, but his time has come to an end. The Catfish released him today.

It is with great sorrow that the Huntington Catfish must part ways with longtime C Eugene O'Donnell.
He will be missed by the organization.
Jul 08 2023: Catfish Team Diary #3 - by Dcmrulz on July 20th, 2015
Seems like this will be a yearly thing. The first half of the 2023 season is nearing its close, and the Catfish of Huntington are holding a 7 game lead over the Catfish of Sioux City, riding on the backs of a 3.41 team ERA and some excellent hitting work by Larry Riley (.324/.400/.545), Hiroshi Saitou (.291/.384/.547) and a surprise season from Alvin Gentry (.304/.369/.543).
On the other end, it appears Ricky Mitchell is on pace to have his worst regular season since 2017, with a BAA of .235, and an under 50% Quality Start Rate (In 2017, Mitchell finished 10-10 with only 5 QS in 35 starts). His work has been uplifted by Blackhawk Ibarra however, who is on pace to have a very similar season to last year, with similar ERA, Ks and BAA.)
Here's to some marked pitching improvement in the 2nd half, while maintaining the offense and league-bet +126 Run Differential.

114 games in, Catfish looking really good for another promotion. There are going to be some tough decisions to make over the next couple of seasons, however as the salaries climb and the years creep up. A logjam of prospects are starting up, so how the roster looks in the future will be interesting.
Jul 16 2021: Halfway through... - by Dcmrulz on February 18th, 2015
Tough all star loss for the division, but halfway through, there's a lot to be proud of in this team. So long as the pitching can anchor the 2nd half stretch well, I think the Catfish can walk away with a promotion.
