    --The Legends are the first Hulbert team to see .500 this season. The Hard Cider move into a tie for first in the Cartwright. The Dust Bunnies have won 5 in a row to climb over .500 and into 2nd in the Johnson.

    Starting to get seriously worried about Fergie now. Six weeks into the season and he still hasn't gotten his first win.

    --The Boys make up a game on the Iron in the rugged Chadwick where all 4 teams are above .500. The other 3 division leader extend their leads though.

    --Well we're at the quarter way point and still no wins for Fergie. Teammate Fernando Valenzuala picked up his 8th win - and 7th shut out - though as the Legends are gaining a little breathing room in the Hulbert. The Hard Cider have a 7 game winning streak as they also are building up a little cushion.
    --The Knights have won 5 in a row and 9 of 10 to hold an 8 game lead over the surging Dust Bunnies. I saw the Bunnies as a slight favorite coming into the season and if you'd told me that my cleanup hitter would be batting under .200 and my #2 starter would have an ERA over 6 at this point I'd have assumed the season was going very poorly.

    '

    That's almost unbelievable. Nine starts so far and only two decisions - both losses. I guess I'll hope that when Fernando decides to cool off Fergie will pick up the slack.

    "A ballplayer has to just go out and be mean. You can't play half-heartedly. If you do, there's someone right over your shoulder that'll take your job away. If you don't do your job, what they're paying you for, why should they pay you? You just can't put in eight hours, that's what a lot of people don't realize about athletes. Very few people realize the pressure." Dave Kingman

    --The Skipjacks show signs of getting untracked as they travel to Motown and put a beat down on the league's best team to date, sweeping the Knights. The Llamas get the other sweep of the evening. The Tyrants are streaking in the wrong directions, running their skid to 7 games.

    --The Dust Bunnies dweep the Knights to add some drama to the Johnson race - and they play again tomorrow. The Llamas sweep the Iron to really tighten the Chadwick - 3 teams with 1 game of each other. The Skipjacks have won 6 in a row as they start to live up to preseason expectations. The Hard Cider was the only diviison leader to build on their lead today.

    --May is in the books and we have a 3 way tie atop the Chadwick. The Hard cider have the biggest division lead at 5 games so plenty of exciting baseball to come.

    And Fergie is still winless....

    Great race in the Chadwick, with the last place Corsairs only four back as well, which makes them closer to first than anyone is to the Cider over in the Cartwright. If the Gold Sox keep playing well the Johnson could ultimately become a three team race as well, and the Bunnies have already made it a lot more interesting.

    --This was a heavy casualty sim. Please check the injury report. We also had our first player reach his usage limit. JW you need to replace Rozema in your bullpen (he is at exactly 110 so would still be playoff eligible if you get there). Nobody else is in eminent danger, but there are alot of guys in the 70s and a few in the 80s for whom rest or replacement strategies will be needed in the relatively near future.

    The Thunder still have a few pitchers who could help a contender: John Matlack and David Palmer.

    The Tyrants are continuing to disappoint and while we're not quite ready to toss in the towel on the season, we are willing to hear offers at this point for anyone who isn't part of the club's long term plans such as - Thornton, Pinella, Gamble, Sutcliffe, Sarimento, Perry, Wilcox, Campbell, Murray, Lezcano, Allen, Frazier, and Hernandez.

    Also the Thunder will call up Dennis Martinez. And give him Denny's slot in the rotation. We'll send down Beckwith, move McWilliams into his jobs in the bullpen and go with a 4 man rotation for now.

    The Thunder are going to call up Ruhle and Davis. And send down Rucker and Campbell. Reset the rotation to ....

    Ruhle
    Rawley
    Wilcox
    Perry
    Sutcliffe (skip)

    RH CL: Frazier, Murray
    LH CL: Murray, Allen
    RH SU: Frazier, Davis
    LH SU: Allen, Hernandez
    Mid: Davis, Frazier, Hernandez
    Long: Sarimento, Davis
    Mop: Sarimento
    Spot: Sarimento

    Who did Badgers have brawl with? How come none of their players got hurt? Was it a Badger on Badger brawl? Inquiring minds want to know

    Will make adjustments in morning

    --The Beavers Jeff Lahti hit Andre Dawson with a pitch. Dawson charged the mound and both dugouts emptied. Lahti and Dawson were ejected. Wiggins and Orosco took the worse of the rumble - apparently Beavers are tougher than Badgers .

    Looking at replay, I see both Wiggins AND Orosco were hit from behind. Those cowardly Beavers

    --The Legends have lost 5 in a row, allowing the Skipjacks to claw to within a game. As a "bonus" Lew lost CF Ken Griffey for a whopping 37 games. The Llamas are the leagues hottest team, winning 5 straight to claim a share of first in the Chadwick.

    Wow, losing Griffey will hurt a lot. Still wondering how long Fergie can possibly go without somehow winning a game, too. All season?
