The second season might have been tougher than the first in The Big Hurt. Only Mexico City could pull out more than 100 wins with 112 in arguably the toughest division in this World. They distanced NL South rival and defending world champion New Orleans by 18 wins. Did this guarantee a World Series for the Pheenoms? No. As a matter of fact both the Pheenoms and Kingfish are going to be watching 4th seed Trenton and 6th seed Detroit face each other down in the NL LCS. Trenton marched through both the NL South powerhouses en route to Detroit. Should be an interesting series.

In the AL it is anyone's game. Of the six teams to land a playoff spot, 5 were between 95 and 97 wins and none had less than 90. Defending AL Champion Portland and #1 seed Memphis are tied at 2 games a piece in their DCS matchup while AL West division rivals Salt Lake City (#2) and Sacramento (#6) are also deadlocked in theirs. The fight is on and there are no sure bets here.

More to come...

Quick Update -

Portland and Salt Lake City advanced to the AL LCS. In the end Portland's awesome pitching solved and silenced the great bats of SLC. They gave up the first two games but swept the next four to get a second consecutive shot to represent the AL in The Big Hurt World Series.

In the NL, Trenton seems intent to make true on their Cinderella Story bid. Detroit made a good showing in the first game with an 11-5 win but Trenton would have none of it taking the NL LCS 4 games to 1. With only 87 wins during the regular season Trenton had the fewest coming into the playoffs but have been making up for it since.

World Series? The Sea Dogs vs the The Under Dogs. Good Luck guys!

What a World series! Portland Sea Dogs were pressed against the fence again. The Trenton Stars seemed determined to take the dream to the end taking the first 3 games.

I would like to apologize to the two owners who were on my waiting list from last season. I had you saved on a computer that gave a weak cough and died a few weeks ago. I will add you to the front of the list if you get back to me.
