Jul 16 2060: All Star Break Retool - by SnakeEyes_YT on July 12th, 2023

This All-Star break was a disappointing one. First off, not a single Lauderhill Cardinal was an all-star. How do we even manage that. Anyways, at the all star break we sit at 42-38. Solid, but should be better. The offense is in the lower percentile in the league in pretty much every category and the pitching has been rough. The starting 5 has been switched around so many times. Reliable pitchers from past years are now much less reliable. Anyways, at this break we released 6 players and signed 6 new ones. The worst pitchers are gone and hopefully we found a gem in the free agent market. The offense was retooled and hopefully less inconsistent. We'll see how this second half goes. After so many average seasons, I kinda feel like I'm on the hot seat.

Aug 14 2057: The turnaround we have all been waiting for - by SnakeEyes_YT on November 30th, 2022

Finally, the rebuild is complete. Last year we were 68-92, and there was a lot of optimism coming into this season. However, we started out rough. This team fell as low as 18-35 early in the season. We have fought our way all the way back and now sit in sole possession of 2nd place in the East division, having won 8 games in a row. The offense is inconsistent. but the pitching has been elite. This pitching squad is now what we have all hoped it to be. Dominant. We sit at 56-49. Hopefully, we keep winning and maybe, just maybe, come back behind 15 games of East Lansing and win this division.

Oct 16 2056: We have a new manager, but lets just say he's been around... - by SnakeEyes_YT on October 1st, 2022

Pete McAndrews, our manager of 4 1/2 years, has been fired. We were 344-403 with him at the helm, and we needed a change. I looked around for available coaches, and I was shocked to see Stephen Horan available. Horan is already in the Lauderhill HOF. He was an outstanding manager from 2036-2050. After a 6 year stint with the Evanston Orioles, Horan is BACK. I am super stoked to announce this coaching change and we'll see how this change ends up playing out.

Oct 26 2054: 2054 Summary - by SnakeEyes_YT on May 3rd, 2022

Huge step up from last season. And I mean huge. We went from 58-102 to 86-74. The rebuild season IS OVER. NEXT SEASON, WE GO FOR THE CHAMPIONSHIP! GO CARDS!
2054 stats:
Record: 86-64
Pct: 0.538
LAST 10: 8-2

Overall, a very very good season. The offense has greatly improved. If you would've told me a few years ago Angel Silva and Nathan Fortner would both bat over .300 in 2054, I wouldn't have believed you. Also, our former #1 prospect, Toby Klein, is beginning to thrive in the majors and he is only 23. Mid-season signings of Ramon Perez and Luis Cortes were massive. Both were huge offensively and they played very well despite their age. Next season, I truly believe we got a good shot at leading the division.

Feb 19 2054: That time of year - by SnakeEyes_YT on February 25th, 2022

Well everyone, it's that time of year, once again. The 2054 season is beginning today. Lauderhill won two championships, in 2042 and 2044. Since then, the franchise has had only 1 winning season, 3 .500 seasons, and a few awful seasons. The last two seasons have been rebuilding years for the Cards. Their record over the last two seasons is 117-193. Lauderhill legends and veterans are slowly all being released. The major league roster is now chock-full of newbies straight out of the minors. This year may be another rough one. It may be just a season to get many of my players used to the major league level. Regardless, I feel this season will be a special one. Whether we win 100 games and have our first winning season since 2045, or we win 50 and slump back to the offseason, I am excited for this season. Good luck to the rest of the league!
