Nov 02 2063: 2063 Season Recap - by ashevchuk on March 29th, 2024

Our 5th season was the first one in league V and we were aiming to put up a good fight and stay out of relegation.

This looked achievable as we stayed in between 3rd and 4th place for most of the season, but a disastrous 4-16 record in the last 20 games saw us drop into the 5th place and kicked us back to league VI.

Thus a season can be deemed disappointing. Despite the outcome, we had some bright spots on the offense with 2 players contending for league MPV.

Our roster remained mostly unaltered, but some aging players were let go and a few youngsters from the academy stepped up. While offensively this wasn't a big issue, pitching ended up being our Achilles heel as almost everyone on the bullpen underperformed in a big way.

Players of note:
2B Ismael Vasquez with 34 HRs, 125 RBIs, 22 SBs and .907 OPS. He was both an All-Star and All-League for 2nd year in a row.
C Benito Robles with 30 HRs, 106 RBIs, and .922 OPS. He was also both an All-Star and All-League for 2nd year in a row.
OF Edgardo Navarrete with 27 HRs and 103 RBIs. He received his first All-League Award.

Other award winners:
OF Tucker Hamby - an All-Star, but he cooled off eventually.
1B Lucas Lees - Golden Glove winner with his .997 FP and 72 DP.
SP J.C. Munson - an All-Star, but his performance in he 2nd half of the season was pretty poor.

Plans for the next season:
1. Revamp bullpen, but a lot of it depends on luck with the waivers.
2. Introduce a few new youngsters and have them gain a good amount of experience. It's realistic to expect a rookie of the year award this season.
3. Release more aging players and some youngsters who didn't develop enough.
4. The main goal is to promote. If we don't, this season might be considered disappointing too.

Jan 13 2063: 2062 Season Recap - by ashevchuk on January 12th, 2024

Our 4th season turned out to be most successful one. We managed to win our league and earn a long desired promotion to division V.

We could not claim any players from waivers so relied on our established roster with a few fresh names from the minors and that alongside a new GM turned out to be a winning combo.
After a slow start, we really kicked a high gear when opposite conference games started and never looked back.

Players of note:
2B Ismael Vasquez with 45 HRs, 134 RBIs, 25 SBs and .936 OPS - he should have been the league MVP, but all-league honor is prestigious too.
C Benito Robles with 36 HRs, 117 RBIs, and .981 OPS - he earned all-league honors.
SP Tim Melton with 13-5 record, 3.78 ERA and 1.287 WHIP - he turned out be be our best starter and won rookie pitcher of the year award.

Jan 13 2060: New Mascot - New Hopes - by ashevchuk on May 27th, 2023

After our inaugural season in Broket Bat, Danbury Demons became Bobcats and reallocated all the minor league teams closer to the home team in Connecticut.

We were very close to clinching the East but came up short in the clutch while easily leading our division in run difference.

We are planning a significant overhaul in bullpen through free agency while continuing to rely upon homegrown talent on bases. Aging players and those failing to show any improvement have been released.

There's only one goal in mind - promoting. It will be very hard with pretty strong competition in our division as well as a couple of revamped franchises in the West, but it makes it only so much more interesting.

Good luck to all and may the strongest team win it all!
