Thread: 2121 season

    Re: 2121 season

    Eight game days ago, Altoona was sitting at 74-69, nine and a half games behind Binghamton, and it was looking like the squad was going to be spending October watching Netflix and casually working out at home. Amazingly, Altoona has rattled off a National-style comeback, with eight straight games won in a row between the three “tankers” of the division. The streak was punctuated by David Ohman, yes the David Ohman boasting a sparkling 5-17 record, throwing eight shutout innings against Harrisburg, once the dynasty of the east coast. Now, the Curve are just four games behind the Rumble Ponies, and own home advantage in the upcoming game. And if there’s one thing Altoona can do consistently, it’s that we don’t lose at home.

    Also, screw you award voters for putting Joseph Feaster and Clayton Smith ahead of the glorious J.J. combo. This is 2121, I thought that all sportswriters were supposed to have stopped putting emphasis on wins and innings pitched a hundred years ago. I hope your favorite baseball team is the Marlins, hmmph.

    Umm, hey award voters, I would really appreciate it if you stopped caring about the RNG stats and actually like, you know, looked at the stats? I know you guys really love massive muscle steroid bois, but can y’all please stop drooling over ribbies for a second and take a look at Mabrey’s AL leading 1.051 OPS! Don’t even get me started about the Cy Young voting...

    I’m going to be so happy when I finally replace David Ohman with Bobbé Hagans come next spring, assuming there is going to be a next spring

    For the first time in 40 years, the Smokies will finish the regular season in first place in their division. Additionally, for only the 5th time, and first time in 68 seasons, the Smokies have eclipsed the 100-win plateau. Although the team's offense has dropped of slightly, there are still a handful of players who could punch their way into the team's record book. Michael Ross has tied his own record at second place with 155 walks in a season. He sits one short of tying the record, and two short of the out-right lead with 2 games to play. John Tinkle is 5 total bases behind his 5th place mark in team history he set last season.

    Obviously the team has rewarded the patience of the fans, punching their first ticket to the postseason since 2104. Will the smoke signals continue to rise into the Tennessee night as the calendar flips to October? A date with Binghamton awaits in the first round.

    Re: 2121 season

    Against my better judgement, I feel compelled to talk a little bit about the regular season that was for the Hartford Yard Goats... the best in the history of the franchise (115-45) - tied for 2nd best in AA ReMake history.

    This was their first time reaching the playoffs in 10 years (first time ever in Hartford), and first time finishing in 1st place in 19 years. Their previous best season was as the Wichita Wranglers in 2053, with 105 wins.

    The offense was led by MVP candidate, CF Harvey Hessler, who hit .358 with 43 home runs and a tremendous 1.084 OPS. He was the only player on the Yard Goats with over 100 RBIs.

    Defensively, Donald Mundell played half the year at 1B since, having been traded mid-season, essentially broke the Range record for 1B with a 12.01. Unfortunately, his offensive stats nose-dived the last couple months.

    2B Theodore Gomez and SS Robert Bentley performed brilliantly in the middle infield with a near 7.00 range each.

    3B Rayford Reed had a brilliant year with 4.00 (not GPA, Range)… along with 58 SB, despite a .238 BA.

    As a team, Hartford boasted the best field pct in the league, along with their excellent range. They finished tied for 5th in runs scored with a .272 team BA, and #1 in run prevention with a 3.20 team ERA.

    The pitching was led by Jacob Giese, who came over from Trenton. Despite not arriving to Hartford until mid-July, he still racked up nearly 20 wins with the Yard Goats, finishing 29-10 with a 2.24 overall ERA. He earned every penny of his $7mil+ salary, and is the favorite to win the Cy Young Award.

    The closer, Thomas Castillo (Filipino pronunciation = Cuh-STEEL-eee-ohhh) had one of the greatest seasons a closer has ever seen. He started the season in Springfield, but was traded mid-June to the Yard Goats. With Hartford, he logged an incredible 34 saves in 34 chances (including 6 in 6 days, at one point), along with a miniscule 0.40 ERA. He never incurred a loss or blown save this year with Hartford. That kind of dominance was unprecedented.

    Overall, it was a regular season many in Hartford have only dreamed of. There is a lot of hope and expectation for the Yard Goat faithful, as they get to see October baseball at Dunkin Donuts Park for the first time ever.

    Initially I was going to put my support behind Tennessee in the division round after Binghamton, but after the way Tennessee disrespected us and our fans in the last game in the season, go Rumble Ponies!

    We matched up well against them in the regular season - should be interesting to see how it shakes out after a game one barn burner of 14-10. Clearly Donald Ellis and the Smokies staff felt like the free pass was the preferable matchup to letting Binghamton hitters try and swing the bat. Rookie Clarence Smith takes the hill for game two.

    As quickly as the playoffs began, the Smokies were swept in 4 straight against the Binghamton juggernaut, proving that the regular season only proves so much. Until next season Smokies fans.

    This is why you never mess with the Curve.
