    Re: 2103

    The runner up Padres are unlikely to repeat their Cinderella run.

    A couple of new draftees from the 2102 will be making a jump into the big team. They will be displacing two young players to other positions. As we have 3 players playing out of position this season, it will likely be a season where we take a step back but two steps forward in a season or two.

    Key changes in 2103:
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4685733
    I knew when I picked this guy it would cause a domino effect in the lineup. His RA potential of 99 made some normally hard decisions relatively easy. He won't be a great hitter but when he fully develops, he will be the best SS in the league.
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4664641
    Previous SS with "only" mid 90s RA potential has been moved to 2B. He replaces Toney who had a 98 RA. It may take a few seasons but the net result will be 100 RA and the best 2B in the league

    A draft pick from 2102. He has exceptional RA at CF but I am moving him to 3B as we already have a 97 RA in CF. When he finishes the move to 3B at the end of the season, he should have 100 RA making the Padres infield a formidable force.

    Low 90s RA 3B has been moved to LF. He should have 100 RA when all said and done.
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4672225
    A throw in from the Toney trade. I'll need to assess if he will be a bullpen guy or starter. He is currently slated as the swingman.

    This will be a season where we won't score a lot of runs and give up more then past year. It will be a couple of seasons before the experiment is truly realized. Until then, we are content with bottom feeder status.

    Boston was thinking of going into a rebuild, but, with a fruitful PSFA period and some players that we got back in traded last year as salary dumps, we saw an opportunity to go for it.

    We traded our 1st round pick #10 for a gold glove 2B in his prime. He is paired with our mid 80’s RA SS and the newly signed Richard Adams and his mid 80’s RA and GL at 3rd.

    We have a new catcher this season who will be average at best with the bat, but, should help shutting down running games.

    Our outfield also has a little different look. We still have our mid 80’s RA CF. Our RF and LF are a little different. Our only weak spot in defense is RF. Our LF’ers are both 60+ RA. We are going to try to maximize our LF hitting by going with a platoon.

    We moved last years FA signee, Fong, to 1st base and he will supply a 80+ RA at 1B.

    Our road ration will be anchored by Michael White. He’s hoping for a rebound season. Donald Baker also returns to our rotation. Last years salary dumps, Timothy Stack and Delbert Richards, look to benefit from what should be an amazing infield defense.

    We know it could be an uphill climb trying to make the playoffs in the ultra competitive AL East, but, we think we can. I’m pete and still restock. We still have Oakland and KC’s 1st rounders this year and next year.

    Boston is not off to the start they were hoping for at 1-5, but, they lost two games in the 9th inning in the opening series which didn’t help. It’s early and we just need our guys to mesh together hopefully.

    Atlanta is just hoping they improve upon last season. No more is really expected of them.

    San Diego has gotten off to a flying start but if anyone objectively looks at this lineup it is clear that they are overachievers. The annual mid season swoon should hit this team in the next little while and bring down these guys to reality.

    The shoe has to drop in Detroit. Tied for the league lead in record with a +5 can't continue. We win close, and we lose big. 14 of our 29 wins were by 2 runs or less, and 10 of our 17 losses were by 5 runs or more.

    At least you win more than you lose. The ATL would take that.

    The Padres are still waiting for the wheels to fall off this truck. There are several players playing way over their heads:

    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4683172 - one of the big PSFA that dropped in 2102 is playing extremely well. He was flirting with hitting over .400 all season and is hitting a lot of home runs.
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4569449 - picked up for a second round pick and playing like a Cy Young award winner. Doesn't have the ability to pitch too deep in the ball game, but this can be overlooked given his performance so far
    https://www.csfbl.com/player/view.asp?playerid=4581249 - a career jabroni found new life as a closer. This is the second year in a row that he is putting up solid numbers in the closer role

    With 3/4 of the infield playing out of position as well as one outfielder out of position, it is remarkable that our pitching has held it together. This was supposed to be a season of regression but things aren't playing as out as planned. I have my fingers crossed that things continue the way they have for the rest of the season!

    Another awful season in Toronto, Huntley is having a great season but the rest of the guys are all kind of treading water. The team has less than 1 HR per game which is very disappointing. Last years ROY John Hulcomb is having an OK season but nowhere near the dominance he showed last season.

    As a result of all this the team decided to bring up prospect Troy Oxendine, hes a decent fielder at 3B and he should have a little pop w/ CN/PO combo. The team isnt worried about him losing rookie eligibility as he is by far not an AS. In his 6th game in the BIGS, Ox as the guys in the clubhouse refer to him by, hit 3 HRs and knocked in 8.
