2014 Season - AL and BL April

 

AL Standings
 
2014StandingsAALApril_zps8b32b267.jpg
 
Players of the Month
 
Peavy Tabbed as April's Starter of the Month: Whether Jake Peavy stays in Detroit beyond this season remains to be seen, but while he's here he's making the most of it. In April the 32-year-old certainly pulled out all the stops by winning the Alpha League Pitcher of the Month award.
 
He put up some fancy numbers with a 5-1 record and and an ERA of 2.52. In 39.1 innings he struck out 44, surrendered 35 hits, 13 walks and proved to be a solid performer in 6 starts last month.
 
Adam Dunn Named Best AL Batter in April: Adam Dunn has been fortunate enough to kick around the majors for years. Today he was honored for his solid hitting last month. In April, the 34-year-old put up a .313 batting average to win the Alpha League Batter of the Month.
 
The veteran first baseman tallied 11 home runs, 26 RBIs and 15 runs scored for the month.
 
BL Standings

Players of the Month
 
Brooklyn's Gonzalez BL Top Pitcher: Miguel Gonzalez had an outstanding April -- so good that the Beta League presented him with the Pitcher of the Month Award earlier today.
 
"There's no way to know where the Avengers would be without Gonzalez," one fan is quoted as saying.
 
In April Gonzalez dominated the competition, running up a 5-1 record, a 1.48 ERA and 34 strikeouts in 48.2 innings.
 
Great April Gets Johnson BL Best Hitter Award: April was a good month for Ben J Johnson. The Buffalo center fielder had his way with opposing pitchers all month while posting a .352 batting average and was selected as the Beta League Batter of the Month.
 
Last month Johnson put up some solid numbers: 7 home runs, 21 RBIs, 15 runs scored and a .383 on-base percentage.

New Mexico Suns Monthly

Volume V, Issue 2

April 2014

 

April Schedule
New Mexico 14-14, T-6th
 
 
AprilSchedule_zpse3896846.jpg
 
Best Stretch
The Suns started off the season looking like they were ready to unload on the Beta League when they swept the Memphis Hound Dogs. New Mexico followed up that series sweep by winning three of their next four series to start out the season at 10-4 before . . . 
 
Worst Stretch
. . . the nine game losing streak occurred. After dropping the series finale to Buffalo, New Mexico was swept by Oakland and Minneapolis, and then lost their first two games against Toronto, including an embarrassing 17-3 loss in the first game of the series. 
 
Best Hitter in April
Miguel Cabrera, 3B
The star of the team did exactly what was expected of him, going 39 of 112 (.348) with three doubles, a triple, six home runs, 18 RBI, 19 runs, seven walks, and 23 strikeouts. 
 
Best Pitcher in April
Travis Wood, SP
Wood was not successful win-wise, but he brought the best stuff to the mound for the Suns. In six starts, Wood allowed 13 runs, all earned, on 37 hits in 38.1 innings. He added 15 walks and 30 strikeouts while going 2-2 with a 3.05 ERA. 
 
Injuries and Transactions
Placed CF Kirk Nieuwenhuis on the 15-day disabled list, retroactive to 04/01/2014.
Placed CF Ramón Ybarra on the active roster.
 
New Player Feature
Jose Alaniz, 1B
The former Kansas City Sting first baseman signed on with New Mexico after his time in Kansas City was done. The 32-year-old Venezuelan played for the Sting for four years. Before that, he was a player in the Venezuelan Professional Baseball League with the Tigres de Aragua before trying his luck in America in the newly-formed league. 
 
In the Champions Association, he has had decent success. Last season as the full-time starter, Alaniz played every game for the Beta pennant winners and Gold Trophy winners. Alaniz had a career-high .303 batting average and RBI total of 19 and tied his career high with 19 home runs. 
 
This season Alaniz may share some of the first base duties with Justin Smoak, though Alaniz is expected to get the majority of the starts.

New Mexico Suns Monthly, V.3, May 2014

 

New Mexico Suns Monthly
Volume V, Issue 3
May 2014
 
May Schedule
New Mexico 27-30, 8th
 
BMaySchedule_zpsdce38ecf.jpg
 
Best Stretch
From May 16-20, the Suns found their winning ways, sweeping San Francisco and then winning the first two against Buffalo. Though May was a tough month for injuries, New Mexico finished the month still hovering around .500. 
 
Worst Stretch
Two four-game losing streaks defined May for the injury-depleted roster. So far this season, New Mexico has hated to see Minneapolis, losing all six games against them so far. They have not fared much better against Oakland, only winning one of six. The Suns will need to find a way to take those series when they face them again starting at the end of June. 
 
Best Hitter in April
Evan Gattis, C/LF
Christian Yelich may have led the team in hits in May with 34, but newcomer Gattis lit up the scoreboard, finishing the month with a .293 clip, eight home runs, and 17 RBI. While the Suns missed the big bat of Miguel Cabrera, Gattis helped to keep the offense moving. 
 
Batting Stats
 
BMayBatting_zps25a0aae1.jpg
 
Best Pitcher in April
Travis Wood, SP
Wood again was the go-to pitcher in the Suns' rotation, finishing with a 2-1 record and a 1.23 ERA in six starts.

Activated 3B Miguel Cabrera from the disabled list.
Placed 3B Miguel Cabrera on the active roster.
 
New Player Feature
Matt Harvey, SP
 
With a promising young catcher like Kien Chan on the roster, you would think the Suns would be content with the future at that position. But what the Suns had in talent at catcher, they had way less talent in the starting pitching rotation. 
 
That is why New Mexico traded for Matt Harvey. The former Charlotte Pilots pitcher did not have a great record in his first two years in the league, but what he did have was an ability to keep game scores down, allowing the bullpen to hold it or lose it. Before joining the Suns, Harvey was 4-2 with a 4.16 ERA with the Pilots, but the Suns' management team is expecting bigger things from him in Albuquerque.

2014 Season - May

 

AL Standings

2014StandingsBALMay_zps0566c839.jpg

Players of the Month

AL's #1 Starter is Zimmermann: An outstanding 6-0 record in May earned Jordan M Zimmermann the Pitcher of the Month Award in the Alpha League. When his name was penciled in to start on the Dallas lineup card, it meant trouble for opposing teams.

In 45 innings of work, Zimmermann limited opposing batters to 28 base hits and a .174 batting average. He notched 38 strikeouts, issued 5 walks and had a 1.00 ERA.

So far this season, Zimmermann has logged a 9-2 record with a 1.91 ERA. He has started 12 games, hurled 84.2 innings and registered 68 strikeouts and 10 walks.

May's Best Batter Announced: A hot-hitting Carlos Quentin punished AL pitchers in May, hitting .380 in 28 games while racking up 13 home runs, 29 RBIs and 20 runs scored.

With those numbers it came as no surprise that New Orleans's 31-year-old right fielder earned Alpha League Batter of the Month honors.

Quentin is batting .316 with 19 home runs and 52 RBIs this season.

BL Standings

2014StandingsBBLMay_zpsa15efbaf.jpg

Players of the Month

Beers Starter Named May's Premier Pitcher: Rodrigo Hernández hasn't been around the big leagues long enough to know that youngsters shouldn't be winning Beta League Pitcher of the Month. But when you put up numbers like his, you're going to get some notice.

In May the Milwaukee starter earned a 6-0 mark in 6 starts. He threw 42.2 innings, struck out 36 and compiled a solid 1.27 ERA.

To date this season, Hernández has a record of 9 wins and 1 loss and a 1.47 ERA. He has appeared in 12 games and struck out 80 in 85.2 innings.

Torrid May Gets Teixeira BL #1 Batter Trophy: Mark Teixeira was declared the Beta League Batter of the Month today. Minneapolis's first baseman stroked 39 hits in 104 at-bats for a .375 average in May.

He also hit 12 home runs, drove in 34 and scored 24 runs.

Teixeira is hitting .324 this year with 20 home runs and 57 RBIs. He also has an OBP of .392, 20 walks and scored 43 times.

GL Standings

2014StandingsBGLMay_zps97fa072f.jpg

Players of the Month

Duffy Earns GL's Best Pitcher Honor: Denver's Danny Duffy has made fans throughout Gamma League take notice over the past month with an exceptional 6-0 record. No pitcher in the Gamma League threw better in May, garnering him the Pitcher of the Month award today.

In 6 starts Duffy compiled a 1.06 ERA, putting up a 6-0 record, striking out 43 and tossing 42.1 innings.

To date this year in 12 starts, Duffy has crafted a 10-2 mark with a 1.62 ERA.

GL's Best Batter Picked: Philadelphia first baseman Yeow-whye Cheung put the wraps on a fine May by capturing the Gamma League Batter of the Month honors today.

He put up a .364 batting average and .405 on-base percentage last month while racking up 12 home runs, 29 RBIs, 25 runs scored and 6 walks.

This season Cheung has hit 20 home runs and posted a .301 batting average.

OL Standings

2014StandingsBOLMay_zpsb14566a0.jpg

Players of the Month

OL's Top Starter is Cahill: Trevor Cahill took a much-deserved turn in the spotlight earlier today as he accepted the Omega League Pitcher of the Month award for May.

The 26-year-old Buzzards starter is a relative newcomer to the league, but nonetheless racked up an impressive 5-0 won-lost record in 6 starts. This month he fanned 39 batters in 43.2 innings and compiled a 2.27 ERA.

This year Cahill has compiled a 7-2 mark with a 3.20 ERA in 12 starts.

Louisville's Ortiz Bags OL Batting Award: David Ortiz is in the final year of his contract with Louisville and today added a timely piece of hardware to his trophy case. Playing in 29 games in May the 38-year-old first baseman ripped Omega League pitchers for a .330 batting average, nabbing him the Batter of the Month award.

He also rang up 9 home runs, 24 RBIs and 21 runs scored.

If Ortiz keeps up this pace, he'll cost someone a lot of money.

This year Ortiz is hitting .342, produced 41 RBIs and 14 home runs, scored 36 times and gotten on base at a .416 rate.

CBA Announces Changes for 2015

 

May 25, 2014

The Champions Baseball Association has announced that it will change its promotion and relegation system for its sixth year, allowing more establishment in the young leagues.

Beginning in 2015, at least one fewer team will be promoted and relegated per league. With the system in place now, a large number of teams move up and down each season, with the Gamma League having the most movement of nine of 12 teams moving either up or down each season. Starting next year, they will still lead, but will only have six of 12 teams moving up or down.
The 2015 promotion/relegation system will thus change to the following:
* The Alpha League will relegate three teams per season.

* The Beta League will promote three teams and relegate three teams.
* The Gamma League will promote three teams and relegate three teams.
* The Omega League will promote three teams.

The changes make moving up or down more complicated, and it also increases the chances of a team in the Omega League of being forced to relocate. Currently, the Edmonton Freeze and Baltimore Bullets are the only two teams in position to be forced to relocate. The relocation rule states that any team in the Omega League for five consecutive seasons without being promoted is forced to relocate to a waiting franchise location with ownership handed over, also.

The playoff systems have changed also because of the promotion and relegation changes. One of the cups, the Gamma Survivors Cup has been eliminated.

For starters, the Tournament of Champions Bowl will now have an additional four teams, with the Alpha sending its top five regular season teams, the Beta League sending its top four teams, the Gamma League sending its top three teams, and the Omega sending its top two teams. Like before, the teams will be seeded from highest regular season record per league, meaning the Alpha League’s pennant winner will have the highest seed, and the next four teams in the Alpha will have seeds two through five. Then the Beta League pennant winner will be the sixth seed through the fourth place team receiving the ninth seed. The Gamma League pennant winner will receive the tenth seed, with the other two teams having the eleventh and twelfth seeds. Finally, the Omega League pennant winner and runner-up will have seeds thirteen and fourteen.

The Beta League’s playoff format, the battle for the Gold Trophy, will now include four teams. The losers of the first round will then battle for the right to be promoted in a five-game series with the winner moving into the Alpha League the following season. Also, the Beta Cup will now be an eight-team double elimination series tournament. The winner of the entire tournament will hold the Beta Cup Trophy, while there will also be a Survivors Cup series for the right to remain in the Beta League. Series lengths will vary.
In the Gamma League, the top three teams now will battle for the Silver Trophy. All three teams are automatically promoted to the Beta League for the following season.

That means the Gamma Cup and Survivors Cup have been combined for one grand survival tournament. The nine-team field will feature a play-in game between the bottom two seeds, with the loser being relegated. The remaining eight teams then battle in a double elimination tournament, with the final team earning the Gamma Cup. Two more teams will be eliminated in the tournament to become the other two relegated teams.

The Omega League will still have an eight-team Omega Cup battle with seeds three through ten battling it out for promotion, with two changes. The first is that the tournament has also become double elimination. Also, only the Omega Cup winners can be promoted, unlike in the past where three participants in the tournament would be promoted.

There is talk of possibly expanding leagues by two teams each in the future, bringing the total number of franchises in the league to 56. That is something the commissioner’s office has on the table, but there has yet to be any long-term plans added. It is possible, according to a source in the commissioner’s office, that the league may expand slowly, with the Omega League at first adding two teams, and eventually jumping more teams up into higher leagues as more expansion possibilities occur. None of these changes are expected to occur in 2015.

Turn and face the strange: Ch-ch-changes
I tried to post the complete month of June without it working or letting me retrieve it. Sucks for me. The part I hate most about dynasty reports is all of the photobucket grabs and such, which looks to be what I will have to do again to continue my dynasty posts.

With that said, being the GM of the Suns has severely slowed down this dynasty. I'm excited to see who wins tournaments and making banners for the winners, so I am going to change the direction of my dynasty again following the 2014 season.

I prefer to be the commissioner and be able to look in on all squads equally. Being the GM of a team narrows my focus and makes everything too cumbersome. Thus, my first person GM character is moving into the association's front office after one season as GM of the Suns so that I can focus on the fun parts of this particular dynasty. I'll do my GMing offline from now on where I can fail in secrecy.

Now, to repost June standings and top players. Scratch that. Don't feel like fighting with my browser, so standings and a few news and notes about the Suns. Going to try to speed things up and sim through the remainder of the regular season to see how it feels to run a team in the postseason, even if they are only battling for survival.

Hmm... Sorry about the formatting. I have recently given up on Chrome, which was much better for formatting, because of some major lag and lack of cooperation recently. I don't know why that changed for me, but I suspect it's my dying laptop leading towards the problems. Anyway, now I am using Firefox, which is not as good as Chrome for formatting these dynasty posts. In time, I will learn it better, though. I hadn't used Firefox in a few years, but it is much easier on my laptop. My laptop doesn't heat up as much when watching videos and posting in general.

Author's note

 

Time has not been on my side. However, I will try to come back to this dynasty, with some expected changes back to the way it was. A month from now, I will have much more time, so maybe I can start pushing this dynasty towards more tourneys and banners, like it was intended. I'll never figure out why I wanted to start micromanaging a team when there were so many other "things" to do with this set up. Anyway, my GM will be one and done. He's been offered a promotion to the league front office, thus he will resign at the end of the 2014 season. Then, all focuses will be on the tourneys, promotions, relegations, and potential relocations. Also, expansion!

2014 Season - July - New Mexico Suns

 

Things are getting better, and going into the last stretch of August, the Suns have a good shot of making a playoff spot and getting promoted to the AL for the 2015 season. First things first. Catch Brooklyn and Oakland! 

 
Oh, and San Francisco made midseason uniform changes. Apparently saved files do not hold on to the old data like I thought they did. Otherwise, I would have moved/deleted files later. Well, I like their new uniforms better anyway. :D

2014 Season - OL Final Standings

 

Standings

 
2014StandingsEOLFinal_zpsa16600d3.jpg
 
Pennant Winners
 
San_Antonio_Buzzards_Banner_pennant_2014
 
A definite step above most of the Omega League, the Buzzards had fallen hard in recent years from their original perch in the Beta League. However, San Antonio used both offense and defense to set themselves apart from the rest of the league. Led offensively by the dynamic hitting of catcher Carlos Santana (.299, 33 HR, 84 RBI) and 1B Anthony Rizzo (.305, 21 HR, 65 RBI), the Buzzards finished as the second rated offense. Not to be outdone, the 1-2 punch of Clayton Kershaw (13-6, 2.70 ERA) and Brian Matusz (13-6, 2.39 ERA) led San Antonio to the best pitching staff in the league. 
 
Tie Breakers
 
Louisville was the 10th seed due to a 10-2 head-to-head advantage over Boston. 
 
What Ifs
 
Had Atlanta won their final game or had Orlando lost, the Blazers would have won the season tie breaker over the Rockets for the right to play for the Bronze Trophy and gain automatic promotion in 2015 to the Gamma League. Instead, Atlanta now has to battle seven other teams for three spots into the Gamma League in the last year of mass promotion. 
 
Boston may have changed its team nickname from the Nighthawks to the Hawks, but they found little daylight on the 2014 season. Finishing in a tie for tenth place with Louisville, the Hawks were unfortunate to finish tied with the team they struggled most against. Still, had the Hawks not lost a late-season game against Edmonton (1-0 final), Boston would be fighting for a promotion chance. Instead, the Hawks, along with Indianapolis, must sit out the 2014 postseason. Hopefully ace C.C. Sabathia doesn't smash up some $%#@ this time. 
 
Tournaments
 
Bronze Trophy
Orlando vs San Antonio
 
Omega Cup First Round
Louisville vs Atlanta
Las Vegas vs Edmonton
Vancouver vs Baltimore
Oklahoma City vs Pittsburgh
 
Special Notes
 
Edmonton and Baltimore are fighting for survival. If either team fails to gain promotion to the Gamma League, they will be forced to relocate. The Freeze and Bullets must win at least two series in the Omega Cup tournament to be promoted to the Gamma League. Good luck, fans in Alberta and Maryland!

Pennant Winners
 
Denver_Peaks_Banner_GL_Champions_2014_zp
 
Denver cruised to win the pennant with a 12-game edge over second place Washington. Francisco Liriano lit up opposing batters, posting a 13-3 record with a league-leading 1.83 ERA.  Danny Duffy was the wins leader (16-5, 2.38 ERA) for the Gamma League's top pitching staff. Craig Kimbrel was a shutdown closer, posting 40 saves on the season. On offense, the Peaks were led by middle of the lineup power from 1B Ruben Aguilera (.258, 28 HR, 83 RBI) and catcher Kidlat Escobal (.282, 22 HR, 79 RBI) and lots of speed on the base paths, including 40 steals from CF Ezequiel Carrera. 
 
Tie Breakers
 
The Chicago Brats won the season series over Honolulu, seven games to five, giving them fifth place and a better match up over the Tropics in the first round of the Gamma Cup. 
 
What Ifs
 
Utah finished a game behind Washington, meaning they were out of the battle for the Silver Cup and without an automatic promotion to the Beta League. Part of the reason they missed out was because of an early August match up against the Presidents, where Washington took two of three, helping to seal the second place finish. Now, the Mustangs have to battle with Philadelphia, Chicago, and Honolulu for two promotion spots in the Gamma Cup.

2014 Season - BL Final Standings

 

August, or New Mexico's Collapse

 
New Mexico – August Schedule
 
EAugSchedule_zps3086febf.jpg
 
A brutal slate to start the month with Oakland and Minneapolis. Both teams dominated the Suns throughout the season, and, while New Mexico was in contention for a playoff spot going into August, losing those two series made that dream impossible. The next goal was to hold on for the right to play in the Beta Cup tournament. However, the Suns could never find their stroke, going 5-14 in the month and dropping into 8th place. Now the battle for survival is on. On the bright side, the Suns have home-field advantage through the Beta Survivors Cup tournament, but any bad two-game stretch means a trip to the Gamma League in 2015.

Pennant Winner
 
Montreal_Saints_BL_Champs_2014_zps769366
 
Montreal is one of those teams that sneaks its way into a league pennant. With only the sixth best offense and the third best pitching staff, the Saints barely edged teams when they won and got blown out a few too many times. However, they have earned their spot into the Alpha League in 2015 and get to challenge for a plethora of other banners in the meantime. 
 
What Ifs
 
The biggest “what if” belongs to the Blizzard, who entered the final day of the season a game in first place. All Minneapolis had to do in the final game was to beat Charlotte or hope for a Montreal loss. Instead, the Blizzard fell to Flyers, 10-3, and the Saints edged Buffalo, 5-3.

Four pitchers, four 10+ game winners. The San Diego Slammers used pitching instead of their namesake offense to help themselves to their first pennant. Led by Jose Fernandez (14-5, 2.22 ERA), Hyun-jin Ryu (13-6, 3.24 ERA), Jake Peavy (14-6, 3.72 ERA; 7-3, 3.48 ERA with San Diego), and Brett Anderson (11-7, 4.00 ERA), the Slammers have a pitching staff that can beat anybody any day.
