2018 Series Preview: Rimouski Fighting Moose vs Montreal Metros

(Game date: Sep. 8, 2018) 

The Bull League’s two teams from la belle province will face off in what promises to be a vicious battle for the right to advance to the Lake League Championship Series.

Trade Winds Blow at Deadline

After a flurry of trades in the beginning of July, the remainder of the month was looking quiet.  But as injuries stacked up and wild card races heated up, several trades were triggered in the last week of July just before the deadline.

The action started on July 26, when the Toronto Nomads confirmed a deal with the Detroit Motorheads that sent promising prospect infielder Ronnie van der Wal – the “Flying Dutchman” – right-handed reliever Glen Talbert, and 21-year-old prospect Matt Hagopian to the Motorheads in return for slugger Brian Chambliss and infielding prospect Jose Rodriguez.
