In our latest installment of the Bull Baseball News podcast we look ahead to 2017 and try to predict the best hitting teams in the Lake and American Eagle Leagues, we recap the Bull Oceanic League action as the season rapidly approaches the final stretch, and preview who we expect to get voted in to the Hall of Fame as the voting period fast approaches.
In this episode, we are simulated up to Nov. 18, and recap two days of Bull Oceanic League games, including a Newcastle Nuclears “China Syndrome” meltdown against Brisbane; We analyse the two Bull League teams likely to dominate 2017 in terms of pitching; Update you on FA signings and trade news; and repeat the latest rumors from the Winter Meetings.
Simulations completed up to Nov. 16, which means “Winter Meetings” have started; There have been some huge Free Agent signings in the past few simulated days; The Bull Oceanic League approaches the final stretch of its short season with 22 games left to go, see who the likely playoff contenders are.
We’ve moved ahead to Nov. 12 in the Bull League, and the inaugural Bull Oceanic League All-Star Game has happened. We bring you the highlights from the game, and off-season Free Agent signing news from the Bull League, as well as a Hall of Fame preview.
The New Zealand All Stars faced off against the Australia All Stars in the inaugural Bull Oceanic League (BOL) All-Star Game, at Newcastle’s Drivers Ballpark tonight (simulation date November 10, 2016).
The Kiwi team took an early lead and never looked back, with their pitching rendering the normally strong Aussie bats virtually impotent. Continue reading “New Zealand Takes First BOL All-Star Game”
The Bull Oceanic League, the 50-game short season fall distraction featuring fictional simulated baseball teams “down under”, has reached its’ mid way point and will hold its All-Star Game.
Rather, the simulation date is already November 11 in league time and the ASG happened “yesterday” so to speak. However, the game video and results will be posted today (September 28th) at noon allowing a unique opportunity to leverage our prerecorded YouTube video broadcast as well as allow for some simulated betting fun.
The Australia All-Stars are a slight favorite on the strength of the higherror run scoring of the Aussie teams in this inaugural BOL season.
Les Groves, the Newcastle Nuclears catcher, is batting close to .400 and three players are tied for the HR lead with 5 a piece.
The kiwi teams have some bats on them too, but so far the pitching is telling the story for that division. The top teams, like Christchurch and Dunedin, have allowed under 3 runs/game, and Queenstown is the first BOL to hit 200 batters struck out.
The kiwis have bats too but all concentrated on the Hamilton roster, with Brayden Franks at 8 HRs and Harris D’antonio at 6, along with the top 3 batting average hitters.
NZ @ Australia will post at 12:00 pm EST, the video will go live and results will be available just after betting closes.
