    2072 Season discussion

    Philly enters the season desperate to keep pace in the East. Portland's rebuild and moves last season are going to make it hard but the team made a set of moves to add some needed offense. There are a lot of changes that started mid season last year. Gone is last season's top rookie Butler who will be spelled by Thomas Scott who was a real disappointment as a rookie. He hit just above .200 and didnt have the expected power the team anticipated.

    Sam Hodge, drafted last season ended up hitting leadoff and did a nice job. Freddie Bernal was one of the acquisitions this preseason, he's 33 but the hope is that he'll continue to be a .300 hitter with some pop in the 2 hole. He will play the same kind of defense in CF than his predecessor who never hit. Al Pena is the other part he steps into 2B also adding some offense at a position that didnt have any.

    Although he's not fully developed, Steve Hester will take over behind the plate and the team expects some additional offense from that position as well. He'll actually platoon with the guy he worked through the minors with, Rob Martin.

    The team hopes that Mike Senter will step into the rotation this season and put his 3 miserable starts from last season behind him. So lots of changes and we'll see how it goes. The rest of the division is probably looking at rebuild phases.

    Without much serious discussion on our trade pieces, Wheat State will roll with very little scouting this season. Even still, the development gods were very kind to the roster, and the team should be even better than last year as it looks to defend its crown.

    Now that we're talking about 2072...

    Antarctica has called up a slew of offense.

    Peter King, C, 22 (#56, 2069) - 3rd round gem should be better at C than previous starter.

    Felix Costello, 2B, 20 (#18, 2069) - Defensive stud, but not much bat.

    Steven Anspach, CF, 22 (#28, 2068) - Slugging CF that is also a defensive upgrade. Cannon arm.

    Percy Jackson, RF, 23 (#9, 2069) - Stud hitter. Eventually will be an OBP and Slugging nightmare. Just brings the power right now.

    interested to see his career, interesting moving him to CF, RA isnt great but GL and arm should make it up a bit.

    Portland didn't make any moves this offseason. We tried to move Bruce Jackson and Tim Claxton, however, we didn't get any takers so Jackson has remained the strong side of the RF platoon the produced over 35 homers and a 100 RBI last year. Claxton has been pushed in a back-up role with the promotion of 23 y/o Justin Bruno. Portland has high hopes for him this season and in the years to come.

    We also called up 24 y/o SS Wyatt Graves to take the place of 35 y/o veteran David Mesa. Offense and defense should both be improved at the SS position.

    Our last promotion was at our catcher position. We called up 22 y/o James Divers. He is hitting way above his head right now, but, his salary should stay relatively cheap and he should be a dependable player at the position for the next few years.

    Portland is off to a good start so far this season, but, we know its a long year and we are still stinging from our early playoff exit last season.

    Tulsa looking unstoppable through 14 games.

    Offense scoring 8.5 runs/game with pitching/defense allowing 2.85 runs/game.

    MVP Chandler with 19 runs (210 pace), while Gabriel has 24 RBIs (274 pace).

    SP London stands 4-0 with a 2.0 ERA one year after starting 10-0 with a 2.8 ERA. Faded down the stretch last year; we’ll see if he can maintain a little stronger this time.

    One 15-5 win later and Chandler scores 3 more runs, while Gabriel unleashes a double and 2 HR for a team record 10 RBIs. He now has 34 RBIs in 15 games (362 pace)!!

    72 RA is adequate for CF when you bring 40 HR power. He's off to a strong start (.328/.391/.759/1.149, 7 HR, 11 RBI in 15 games).
