The Ontario Blue Pirates have won their first Federation Cup Series as the 2051 AFBL Champs! Congrats to Jon on the title!
We have now finished two months of the season and the Blue Pirates are (36-20) in first 6 games up on the Twin Towers. We talked about how this year isn’t going to be easy and after the month of May New York put up, going 18-8 just better then Ontario’s 18-9 has put them in a great spot leading the Wild card by 1. New Jersey has stayed around with the PL’s leading HR hitter. Pennsylvania has one of the best Pitchers in the PL so they are still around as well. Maryland has faded and won’t really factor Read More
The first month of the AFBL is done and the Blue Pirates (16-10) are in a familiar Position 1st place, with the team finishing 2nd in 2046 & winning the Division last 3 years this is good start. The road back to the Finals will not be so easy, old Foe New Jersey is only 1 game back so far, they might not be fully on the charge yet but they will not make it easy. The Railroaders have been out of the playoffs for 10 years! they look much tougher then last season. New York was so close to Read More
Hitters (Last Season) Acquired, Blurb C: Duri Al Gahary (143 .277/.368/.513 124) SD 2038, Had by some accounts one of his best seasons but OBP & AVE were below 2048, tied Franchise REC for HR but really stunk during Playoffs. 1B: Jonathan Broadberry (115 .295/.336/.386 86) D 2.28 2041, He is up & down last season was a bad year so if things flow the same he should have a good season. 2B: Joel Beck (132 .300/.348/.481 119) Trade NY 2047, He was amazing last season like 2048 in the first half, he fell off a lot during send half Read More
Starting Rotation (Career REC) (Last Season) Acquired, Blurb #1. Cristo Mota 67-38 3.67 ERA (20-8 3.52 ERA) SD 2040, Was outstanding last season could get better, He is the Anchor of this Rotation. #2. Jose Esquivel 123-131 4.05 ERA (14-11 4.23 ERA) D 1.13 2031, He has had up & down career hopefully this is a Up year, looking for a few more Ks from him. #3. Freddy Santiago 40-25 3.66 ERA (7-12 4.43) SD 2039, CRAPPY season & they have been all down hill since 2047 BUT he showed up during playoffs so maybe that & some more Ks Read More
So last time attempted to do this was after I lost the 2020 FCS so its fitting I would decide to start up again after losing 2049 FCS. Globe and Mail: Heart Break In Seattle for Ontario. Even with Washington’s #1 and #3 SP on the DL they were just no match for the High Powered Resonance lead by FL MVP Antonio Saucedo who hit the Series Winning Grand Slam to Beat The Blue Pirates 5-2. Changes to team During 2049 season and so far in off season: There were 2 trades for the Blue Pirates last season both happened Read More
