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.

The winner...?

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. 

Thanks

Season 3 has ended in the Big Hurt. The competition seems to be getting more fierce every season. In the AL ML no team had 100 wins with only 1 falling below 74 this season. Mexico City in the NL was the only ML club over 100 for the second season in a row with 101. Atlanta led the AL with 99. The spread was a little wider in the NL however honourable mentions go to Charlotte and Scottsdale who battled hard for the final seeds down the stretch.

The ML playoffs are nearing the WS. In the AL it will be Portland representing for the 3rd straight season after sweeping Memphis in the AL LCS. Portland and Memphis won on pitching over batting vs the great hitting of Atlanta and Salt Lake City respectively. Portland is looking for a repeat of season 2 defending their World Series Champion status. In the NL Mexico City who has averaged 104 wins in the first 3 seasons of TBH finally won their first DCS playoff series moving past division rival New Orleans. The LCS is proving to be just as difficult however as up and comer Vancouver took a 3-1 lead. Mexico City won the first game and closed it 3-2 in game five forcing a game 6. There are no gimmies in TBH. More to come here...

In the minor leagues the NL pushed back against the performance of the AL in season 2 winning 4 of 5 pennants in season 3 and taking an 8-7 lead overall below the ML. Scottsdale with a threepeat in the AAA and a first pennant in the High A have 4 or half of the NL minor league pennants. The other two NL pennants this season went to Cleveland in the Low A and RL. Cleveland owner geese2128 is leaving a minor league force to be reckoned with as he will not be with us next season. Talk about finishing on a high note. The lone AL pennant went to Seattle in the AA who had a busy playoff season and deserved at least the one reward. A great effort by all owners in the minors this season.

Only two things are left to be determined in TBH. Who will represent the NL in the World Series and who will our WS champion be. Stay tuned...

9/23/2014 11:24 AM
Well it looks like the Spider-Pigs will be the NL representatives in the season 3 TBH WS. After battling through the powerhouses of the NL North, Syracuse and then Detroit, then taking down the perennial NL leader in 7 games the up and comers have apparently arrived. Their toughest challenge is yet to come however as they face the franchise that has thus far defined the word 'dynasty' in this world, the Portland Sea Dogs. Congratulations to both owners and good luck.
9/25/2014 9:30 PM
Congratulations goes to...the Portland Sea Dogs. 11 straight wins and an undefeated playoff season says it all. 10 runs in the final 3 innings and coming within 1 run of forcing a game 5 Vancouver has left a message of their own. We'll see what season 4 brings...
