January 11th, 2021 - The Hills Are Alive – Cardinals win Cup Title!
Farmington Hills were able to take two straight games again the Durham Bulls and clinched victory in the 2048 Cup. Both games were reasonably close, but the Cardinals got wins from their two starters Gonzo Ramón and “The Holy Hurler” Keith Pope. Additionally, in the final game, big hits from Marcos Valadez and Riley Horne put the game out of reach. Congratulations to 5L1NK and the Farmington Hills Cardinals!
January 8th, 2021 - Cup Final Monday!
The cup final is Monday and will feature the #6 ranked Durham Bulls (II.2) versus the underdog #66 ranked Farmington Hills Cardinals (VI.2). Should be a competitive final and Annie Savoy (Susan Sarandon from Bull Durham) will likely be in attendance. Good luck to diegodamers and 5L1NK as they go for their first cup title!
December 25th, 2020 - Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!
Just a big thank you to everyone who is enjoying the game and making it fun for me and the rest of the participates. I know 2020 has been a difficult year for most of us and I'm hoping the game helped alleviate some of the isolation/cabin fever. Have a wonderful Christmas season and with a bit of luck (and maybe a successful vaccine rollout), 2021 will be better.
January 19th, 2021 - Pirates Clinch West Title! - Port Arthur Pirates
Old saying, patience is a virtue, rings true for the Port Arthur Pirates. After two seasons with 97 and 103 wins, only to finish 2nd in their division, this year the team breaks through with a division championship and now spend the rest of the season looking forward to a title series against a very powerful Roanoke team and promotion to Division V next season.
January 13th, 2021 - Y'all please close out your innings - Biloxi Scorpions
For the 2nd series in a row, the Scorpions were faced with a 1 run lead, empty bases and 2 outs in an inning, and for the second series in a row, the Scorpions decided to just implode for a third of an inning and blow both games in embarrassing fashion, ruining two otherwise close, defensive games.
Coach McRae assures that this is purely happenstance, and that the rumors of the Scorpions pitching corps believing that 2 outs ends an inning are unfounded. - JV-Tosshin
