ARIZONA LOOKING FOR REPEAT TITLE

Arizona could add to their 2019 success with a 94-win year.

(GAME DATE – April 1, 2020) — The Arizona Cowboys are predicted to repeat their 2019 miracle run with a first-place finish with a 94-win season to top the Metro League West division, a shocking revelation that has surprised many watching the stronger of the two Metro League divisions.

The Cowboys set a team record last season with 92 wins, placing 2nd behind the Seattle Salts (93-69). It was the first time in club history they made a playoff, entering as the first wild card, along with the Nevada Speeders (91-71) in a tight three-way race for the division title.

ADMIRALS REMAIN IN COMMAND

The Admirals are expected to dominate the ML East again

(GAME DATE — April 1, 2020) — It is expected to be another dominant year for the St. Petersburg Admirals in the Metro League East division, with an anticipated 92 wins and projected 244 home runs and 1212 pitcher strikeouts putting them favorably ahead of almost all of their competition.

The Norfolk Sharks could slide into second place with 82 wins, barely above .500, according to the same predictions. Despite making serious inroads to improve during the offseason the Dallas Deputies, along with the Miami Storm and the Washington Freedom (formerly Philly Liberty Warriors) are not expected to break 80 wins.

ANOTHER 100-WIN YEAR FOR RAVENS

The Ravens could break 100 wins again, though they are predicted to just hit 99.

(GAME DATE — April 1, 2020) — All indications are that the Minneapolis Ravens will storm to another strong finish this year, and could once again hit 100 wins. The official prediction is for 99, but the team is largely intact from a very successful Bull Cup appearance last season, with the addition of strong performers like Takahide Higuchi (in a trade) and Jake Pruitt (in a free agent signing).

There is a good chance that with the expected weakness Lake League East division, and the deep-pocketed team locking down their big time talent for years to come, that the Ravens could actually smash through 100 wins this year and ride that wave to the Bull Cup again.

BOSTON BACK IN CHARGE

Boston is predicted to claim the LL East pennant handily in 2020.

(GAME DATE – April 1, 2020) — It’s no April Fool’s joke. Boston is our prediction to lead the Lake League East Division at the conclusion of the 2020 Championship Season. Last year’s division winners New York are predicted to come in 3rd, but realistically could bump Pittsburgh out of their 2nd place spot and secure a wild card spot at the end of the year.

The Brawlers have had a busy off-season making some important roster moves after posting their first sub-.500 season since 2012 last year. Their 80-82 finish was 14 games behind the NY Dragons, and they were 8 games behind the offensively deficient Toronto Nomads.
