Injury Forces Jose Ramirez Out

(GAME DATE — May 13, 2020) — When Jose Ramirez was hurt against the Pittsburgh Iron Pigs, the Montreal Metros were hopeful that the injury was not serious.

Team doctors told BNN today that Ramirez would miss 2-3 months of the season.

2020 Preview: Lake League East

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.
