Will Boston Make History?

(GAME DATE — May 3, 2020) — As the first month of the 2020 season comes to a close, one team has firmly established itself as a probable contender for the duration of the year, the Boston Brawlers.

As of the end of April, the Brawlers stood alone in the Bull League as the top team with a 20-6 (.769) record, the first team to reach 20 wins, and 5½ games above its nearest division rival, the New York Dragons. Continue reading “Will Boston Make History?”

2020 Preview: Lake League East

BOSTON BACK IN CHARGE

(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.

(GAME DATE – Feb. 26, 2020) — The Bull League kicks off Spring Training today, and players and GMs are anxious to play some baseball once again.

The off-season was quiet, with just a handful of big name free agent deals, and not too many trades, as teams worked on developing their talent internally and making adjustments as we move into the second year of full 162-game schedules. Continue reading “Spring Training Begins for 2020 Season”

Flurry of Trades as Deadline Nears

(GAME DATE: July 29, 2019) — A handful of trades, including a potentially big game-shifter for the Lake League’s West Division, have been executed as the July 31st trade deadline in the Bull League looms.

The Calgary Inferno (39-64) were involved in two this month, sending RHP Brian Johnson and a minor leaguer, Christopher Wicks, to Arizona in exchange for two minor leaguers from the Cowboys.
