Teams Spending Big In Offseason

(Game date: Dec. 20, 2018) — Bull League teams have been spending big this offseason, partly in anticipation of a longer season bringing in more revenue.

But adding to the spending craze is that this has been one of the best-stocked free agent pools in a few years, leading to some big name talent moving around for sizable piles of cash.

Fighting Moose in Fighting Form as Week 5 Closes

The books are closed on Week #5 of the regular season, and the Rimouski Fighting Moose have surged to the top of the LL East standings in what has been a roller-coaster ride so far in that division this season. The Moose are 20-12 at the close of the first trimester of baseball, two games ahead of the Toronto Nomads, who held the lead for the early weeks.

Last week, the Moose completed a four-game sweep of the Boston Brawlers, and after a rare Saturday rest day, they opened a home stand against rivals Montreal with a 2-1 comeback win yesterday. Continue reading “Fighting Moose in Fighting Form as Week 5 Closes”

Rimouski Adds Tavitas

Gonzo Inks Big Deal with Nevada

Earlier this week, Nevada Speeders GM Scott Dummler has landed one of the biggest free agent deals this offseason, signing outfielder Hugo Gonzales to a 2-year, $23.5 million deal.

This means the annual $11.75 million to 32-year-old Dominican is the biggest deal, on an annual basis, since December 16, when Jacksonville signed Roberto Castro for $12.45 million. Continue reading “Gonzo Inks Big Deal with Nevada”

Ling Faces Uphill Climb to Land a Contract

MVP catcher Dao-zi Ling is facing a rough ride in seeking a new contract this off season, since becoming a free agent at the end of this season.

The veteran former Calgary Inferno catcher, who recently won his second Bull Cup with the organization, remains in free agency and thus far has had no teams show interest. Continue reading “Ling Faces Uphill Climb to Land a Contract”
