    Re: Big League 2013 Season Discussion

    Our rookies all had fine seasons.


    1B William Carter (#12, 2009) hit .307 with 21 HRs. Will get even better.

    2B Daryl Light (#23, 2008) was great defensively. Really helped the pitching staff.

    3B Lawrence Scott (#27, 2007) hit 37 doubles, 27 HRs with 114 RBI. Great defense.

    CF Charles Nelson (#36, 2010) had 2+ RA and 10 assists. Also flashed a little power with 15 HRs.

    P Richard Holland (#12, 2008) was decent, winning 14 games with a 3.50 ERA.

    P Steven Brady (#49, 2009) performed much better than we had hoped. 19 wins. 3.21 ERA. 23 CGs. 5 ShO.

    Robert Landrum had a very successful season. 19 wins with a team record 2.12 ERA. 27 QS was also a team record. And his 5 ShO tied for the team record.

    Wondering if I’m going to end up regretting that trade.

    Well, another subpar season for the Sasquatches. With the exception of great seasons by CY Young contenders Seth Hahn and John Brown, there was really nothing to write home about. Look for offseason moves to be made.

    Big League 2013 Season Discussion

    Royston entered 2013 looking to sell off veterans but after a pretty soft trade market, management went all in on a couple Free Agents in an effort to win it all one more time.

    $4.6 million on 34 yo George Robinson for some pop at DH and $6.0 million on 27 yo perennial under achieving Robert Cruz who was released after Seattle understandably lost patience with him.

    So that 11 million spree essentially wiped out allocations for 2013 in an effort to squeeze out another playoff run.

    Robinson was productive with 32 HRs, 85 RBIs, and an 0.825 OPS - not great but enough production to supplement the offense we had.

    Cruz has a very respectable year at 20-9/3.86 ERA. Maybe not $6 worth but exactly what Royston needed to win 100 games for the 12th season in a row.

    Can Royston bring the title home one last time for this group of players? Time will tell. One thing is for sure - 23 teams will be routing against us lol.

    You wanted better defense and that's what you got. Your team ERA improved. Landrum wouldn't have pitched as good with the defense you had last season, IMO.

    Oh, I agree. Was just a tongue-in-cheek comment. Both teams should have a bright future.

    Yep. Looking forward to see what they do in the future. No way Landrum pitches this good again though.

    After another pathetic year brought on by owner/manager distraction, Las Vegas did make a late season trade for pitcher Spencer McNew in exchange for slugger Jeffrey West. We do have a couple of potential pitching helpers on the way up, but anything to get our staff ERA out of the 6.00 range would help as our offense is one of the best in the league.

    Ok...2013 statistical records:

    - Raymond Ogden broke the single season RBI record with 180, surpassing a 25-year old record set by Ronald Puffer. Dang, some of those names from the past still scare me.
    - Kenneth Cooke broke the dubious record of allowing 568 lifetime HR's, though admittedly longevity was the major factor there since I can't knock his career sub 4.00 ERA
    - Homer Duke continues to lap the field with his alltime K's record. Up to 3259 now. Wondering how many miles that is walking back to dugout with nothing to show for it.
    What's next?
    - Wilbert Gibson is just 82 hits from becoming the all-time hits leader, and 5 doubles from the all-time doubles leader.

    On to 2014
    Just Vegas, baby....

    Wow and then ends a royal run by royston. The CN towers beat the Clayton comets for the second year in a row, despite being second place in the divison. Expecting to get sweeped by royston, we welcome facing a different team this year in the second round, with probably the same results though!
