    Holy cow! The jinx is real. My team has performed way below expectations. 5th place at 42-50.

    There's a couple of veteran pitchers in SD that won't survive the rebuild that are doing quite well. If anybody needs pitching help:


    Kenneth Parsons - 31 - Late bloomer is finally nearly maxed (92/93 FI) and is doing quite well this season (3.17 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). This is a team with a weak defense, so he should be quite effective on a team with good defense.

    Harold Thompson - 29 - Pretty consistent SP3-4 type. 13-7, 3.93 last year for a bad team. 9-8, 3.47 so far this year. Maxed 73 48 68 83 with 78/84 EN.
    2ML 1906, 1928, 1931, 1968, 1990, 1991, 1995
    BD 1993,1994, 2004, 2041, 2044, 2064, 2065
    CBF 2056, 2060, 2071, 2075, 2087, 2088, 2092, 2105,2106,2116
    CWS 1953, 1961, 1962, 1963, 1965, 1971, 1976, 1984
    HR 1903, 1906, 1920, 1921, 1923, 1924, 1926, 1927, 1929, 1934, 1943, 1950, 1953
    CarL 2026, 2039, 2055
    71-55 WS

    There is a monster in Chicago. Michael Schweitzer is hitting .340 with 51 HRs, 138 RBI, .441/.690/1.132. As Harry Caray would say..."Holy Cow"!

    Also, Giants rookie Matthew Zito is having an awesome season. .365 with 100 SBs.

    And the guy with THAT name...Cuddles Putin has 39 saves, tied for the league lead.

    Very rare losing season in Seattle. And I am not sure what happened. I improved the team. The offense was supposed to be better. The defense was supposed to be better. The starting pitching was the same and it had been good. 4 of 5 starters were CY winners.

    Looking at the stats, we scored a few more runs than last season. +26 with 2 games to go. We gave up 72 more runs though. My 4 CY winning pitchers were a combined 52-52 with a 3.47 ERA.

    The other teams got better because of new management. I still expected to make the playoffs. What a bummer.

    I'm sharing some frustration, though I retooled a bit and didn't know if I'd be able to still compete. Turns out I could, but Louisville blew it down the stretch and would need a miracle to sneak into the playoffs.

    Well one of our top notch pitchers had a really bad season. In what was likely Joshua Frost's final start with the Pilots, he was chased out after just 2 innings. He finished the season at 7-15 with a 5.59 ERA. He had been solid since joining us but just fell apart this season.

    Colt 45s are eliminated from playoff contention on the next to last day of the season. If you want to be a playoff team, it's not a good idea to start the season 0-7.

    I started 6-0 and thought I was going to cruise. NOPE! And you finished ahead of me.

    Actually, we technically aren't eliminated yet. We could sneak in on a tiebreaker if we win our last game by at least 58 runs.
