Aug 19 2025: Gulls continue to flounder - by the gizmo on December 31st, 2015
Since losing 15 of the last 16 games and seeing their 3rd 7 game losing streak in the last month, Gulls players, management and fans are shaking their heads over such a horrendous mid season slump.
After finishing 3 games out of first last season, The Gulls went out and signed hot hitting FA, Derrick Leach with his lifetime .340 average looking to aide the power game that had over 260 HRs last season with a lot more RBI chances. Leach was cut before AllStar break.
The offense has struggled against left handed pitching, hitting 30 points less and on track to hit about 100 home runs less than last season.
Pitchers have already given up more home runs than they did all last year and no one can find any consistency in their appearances since Gary Yuan throw back to back shutouts at the beginning of July
Gulls owner T. Gizmo R. Dogg is already planning on teams upcoming demotion and will be making some difficult roster moves in the near future as it is now more about finances than winning.

Leach had to forcibly removed from Elys leg after clamping down with his teeth and drawing blood. Team physician, Nomar Payne said that Leach did lose some teeth when he was removed and that Elys blood loss was minimal. Payne also added that Leach had done nothing but suck the attitude and life from all The Gulls players in the locker room.

Oct 05 2023: Gulls Fly high over Pioneers - by the gizmo on August 13th, 2015
Since seeing their team batting average drop almost 20 points in the 2nd half of season, the Gulls swooped all over Harrisburg with 18 hits, including 4 home runs in spacious Harrisburg Grounds. Chad McGee had 3 hits, including 2 home runs with one banging off the right field foul pole, then deflecting into the window of the mezzanine party seats. " What a pane" stated one fan.
The Pioneers have 6 starters on th D.L. and a pretty beat up pitching staff, so hopefully the Gulls can continue their winning ways and stay close enough to Athens to make the last series of the season, the most important one.
