Nov 04 2044: CSA 2045 preseason notes - by FreddyTheEye on March 27th, 2020

Good luck in the coming season to all.

College Station Athletics 2045 preseason update:

Recent strengths have been strong starting pitching, strong defense and high OBP.
Recent issues have been lack of power while giving up lots of HRs and also really bad reief pitching.

This will be an important waiver season for us as our depth is a little questionable.

Gone is probable Hall of Fame manager Raymond McDowell (age and salary demands),
In is untested manager Luke Donovan. The hope is he helps with all the rookie pitchers we have and also he saves us 4m a season.

Infield is a mix of veterans and young prospects. Good range and fielding but lack power at bat.

1B: Morita :perenial all star
Puente :young hopefull power hitter, can he hit the rhps
2B: Apodaca:waiver find allowed us to release all star Lunsford (aging and salary)
Yates :we are hopeful he can be the future at 2B
SS: Crooks :is solid and sure handed. Cant hit lhp at all
Reeves rookie who does not look much better
We will be watching waivers for a shot at an upgrade or prospect
3B: Clemente: has been playing 3B for a few seasons now but is better suited to OF.
Davilla : was slated to play 3B but has never developed enough offence to stick.
Herron : Somone has to go...Also has done nothing yet to impress
Ramos : Blew through the minor leagues, untested, may be better suited at OF
C: Zelaya : Good hitter, great arm, proven veteran not much power
Abercrombie: promising,not sure yet what to make of him, could be a starter or backup OF and catcher

OutField and DH:

Rangey veteran Jerry Knight will again hold down CF. The corners will be a mix of Oliver York, first baseman Morita (if Puente can steal some time at first), Keough another vet that destroys lhp, and Abercrombie.

We hope to find a legit veteran DH on waivers as we do not have one employed.

Starting Pitching remains a strength: Big 3.. Pascual, Hood and Wisniewski all appear to have another year in the arms. After that it gets questionable.
Veterans Wilkerson, Tapia and Lee give us some depth and a forth starter but one has to have a good year.
Youngster Costa will hopefully be helpful and will take that next step.
At reliever we have only Manning, who was brutal last season, and young prospect Canada who just may have a break out season this year after gaining exp and AI last season.
Beyond that it is anybodys guess as we have a pile of rookie pitchers to sort through.
If we can find a solid reliever on waivers we should be just fine at pitcher but I really think we will have to find that help.

We are overall optomistic as we move on to a very important spring training and waiver season!!

Mar 15 2036: 2036 team report - by FreddyTheEye on May 18th, 2018

Let's play ball!

Team report:

College Station Athletics are coming off four legends seasons that produced a second place finish, three pennants, two legends crowns and a cup championship.

Gone: Perennial All star hall of fame slugger Art Shields, long time short stop Darius Bowman and clutch power hitting outfielder Takeo Ono.

New additions: Top prospect rookie Diego Clemente, strong armed rookie catcher Bernardo Zelaya, a short stop tandem of rookie Pascual Morales and veteran John Gill and right handed hitting slugger Walt Wheeler will try to replace some of the lost power to the lineup. At least 4 rookies will see significant playing time this season.

Offseason and drafts: Although we were able to find a couple roll players on waivers that we believe will fill gaps, our draft was very subpar. Rounds 1 and 2 have produced two pot 12 probable roll players should they stick with the club long term.

The club's strong point has been Pitching and the starting four remain the same and should be solid albeit aging. After that we have three vets and six 26 and under pitchers fighting for bullpen and 5th starter roles. We will need one or two to really step up. Our pitching depth or lack of will likely make or break us this season.

Manager Ray McDowell is back for a second season after leading the team to a championship last year.

Our ballpark remains unchanged.

2036 Outlook
We expect to be in contention again this season but in all honesty we believe long time rival Novi Doubledays may be the team to beat. We definitely can't count out Battle Creek (currently ranked #2 and have been 2 or 1 for three straight seasons!!)or #5 Monterey Titans and the two new comers Laredo and Missoula deserve to be in the league.
We do however expect super long time rival "the Care Bears" will spend the bulk of the season with 5-6 starters on the injured list.

Overall we should have a decent balance between hitting, defence and pitching as well as veterans and youth. We continue to be optimistic about the future.

Good luck in the coming season to all.
