Apr 18 2049: Giant Struggles Continue - by dcon_28 on February 21st, 2021

The Grand Island Giants have been massively struggling as of late, dropping to a record of 5-13, including going 1-9 in their last 10 games. The only player that has been playing relatively well recently has been veteran outfielder Hector Moran. Moran has been on a very hot streak, hitting .366 with a .997 OPS and 11 RBIs, as well as hitting .410 on the season. Unfortunately, promising second baseman Connor Hardman has been finding it tough to connect with the ball this season, only hitting .179 so far. Veteran infielder Clay Davidson has also been struggling, only hitting .211, whereas he is usually hitting around the .250 mark in his career. The Giants did sign free agent infielder Manny Godwin to hopefully fill in for Davidson during his struggles. The Giants are also attempting to claim a few players off waivers, so we'll see eventually if these changes can have an impact and hopefully turn things around in Grand Island.


Mar 25 2049: Grand Island Starts Cup Play Strong - by dcon_28 on February 16th, 2021

After completing a 3-1 series victory against the South Jordan Hippos, the Grand Island Giants have started this season's cup play on the right foot. The series was highlighted by excellent pitching on the part of starters Tony Westfall and Kevin Middleton, as well as nearly flawless performances from closer Dwight Chambers in games 1 and 2. The team's lone loss was a result of very poor pitching from Louie Norwood, who is thought of by the Giants front office as a promising pitcher in the works, but seemed to suffer from a case of nerves, as he allowed 8 runs in only 4 innings of work in what otherwise might have been a close game. Despite this, the Giants still had good success in this opening cup series and they are looking to continue that into the season.
