    Early playoff exit for Dubuque this year, falling to Binghamton in the first round. Looks like the retooling of the pitching staff will continue this offseason, primed to lose at least one more member of the rotation after a pair of exits over the last two offseasons.

    It looks like a couple former late first round picks are coming through, though, with John Barnett winning this year's Rookie of the Year award - the first for Dubuque in 68 seasons - & 24 year old Bruce Fuller fresh off a 21 win campaign.

    Veteran slugger Dan Porter announced his plans to retire shortly after the series-clinching loss to his former team, so 1B will also be a hole for the River Rats heading into the offseason.

    With only one other member of the lineup older than 30, though, expect Dubuque to be right back in the playoffs next season.

    A season of questions in Hershey moves into an offseason of even more questions. The Bears stumbled badly out of the gate, righted the ship, and moved back into contention, but couldn't quite claw the last few steps up the slope into a playoff berth. New P John Ferguson, CF Steven McMillan, and INF Carlos Bell brought some youth to a lineup that relies heavily on veterans like C Alex Gardiner, still-slugging but increasingly fragile RF Paul Drew, 12-time All-Star LF Louis Dorsey, and 3B James Cornwell. The late-season rebound from a long, ugly slump of 1B James Chaffin is encouraging, but considering that some in the organization had touted Chaffin as the second coming of Hall of Famer Stanford Stagg, his current performance level is a concern.

    Speaking of Hall of Famers, the brain trust in Chocolate World must make a critical decision this offseason: whether to tool up for a playoff run behind rotation that has been solid but is aging (not a good sign, given management's predilection for hard throwers) and Cooperstown-bound closer Mark Cruz, or to move some assets and start over.
