It's been a good season so far! Let's break it down.


Upmonsters

The team formerly known as Snakes got a new name and offensive focus, and it's helping so far. They haven't scored a lot of runs, but their defense has been great, allowing only four runs in five games. After being average for a few years, this new mindset might get the team to the championship series.


Ghosts

Except for a bad game this week, their pitching and defense has been solid. Their offense is scoring in almost every game, but could use more work to keep pace with the rest of the network. Definitely a team to watch in the second half.


Smash

They had a bad start to the season with being shut out twice, but lately they have gotten it together with a shutout of their own and winning a marathon against the Beamriders. They have a pattern of falling apart in the second half of the season, which could have started already with a big loss to the Bombers. Hopefully they have what it takes to stay above average this season.


Beamriders

The team that dominated the league for four seasons continue to struggle this year, barely scoring any runs while giving up too many. Three of their games have gone into extra innings, so they do fight hard, but ultimately fail in the end.


Mutants

Last season's league champions have fallen hard, being shutout four times and giving up at least one run per game. It's very unlikely they will repeat as champions this year.


Deadly Dogs

After a cold 2018, they have heated up again with the best record and lowest runs given up in the league. Pitching has thrown four shutouts, their only run given up was in an extra innings game. Offense is one of the best in the league. They have what it takes to make it back to the championship series.


River Raiders

They're off to an inconsistent start this year, being shut out in two games, but scoring a lot of runs in their other three. Both of their losses were late in games, so their core players are solid, the bullpen needs some work. If they can get consistent, they have a good shot at returning to the championship game.


Bombers

Despite their run total and record, they haven't done much. Outside of their big win this week, they've only scored four runs in four games. Pitching and defense has been inconsistent. We could see an increase in offense in the second half, and if they can hold their opponents back, they could make a jump to first place.


Armada

Except for a bad loss to the River Raiders, they have been pretty even this year. Four of their games have been one run games. It's hard to tell which way they will go in the second half. They will need to improve their offense to have a shot at the championship series.


Spartans

They are once again inconsistent. Except for a big win against the Ghosts this week, they have barely scored any runs. Pitching has been good except for a bad game against the River Raiders. They are only two games out of first place, so it's not over for them yet.


The push for the championship series starts Monday with the Upmonsters at Beamriders. It's going to be a wild ride where anything can happen!

I enjoy following the league. Can't believe the Beamriders have lost 5 in a row!

 

How many seasons has the league been around now?

This week's been kinda crazy schedule wise, but should be back to normal time for a while.

 

Beamriders break their losing streak, beating the Mutants 2-0. The Mutants have now lost 5 in a row with 5 shutouts.

 

No game until Tuesday because of the holiday.
