Well, it’s the year 2030 and we’re all settled back into the AL once again. Thanks again to Hazy and ThreeRun for moving all the teams over, I know it can get pretty monotonous. It’s been a rough year for most of us financially, as the poorly run computer teams we inherited have very little fan loyalty. Keep those ticket prices low and that TV broadcast open boys. With the exception of Hazy and Boe, who took the easy way with A fan loyalty (BOOO), none of us have fan loyalty above a C+. Ouch.
In the AL West, it’s pretty much been a one horse race, with schenk’s Texas team beating up on the little guys. Should be safe to say he’ll have that division title for a couple more years, with Seattle, LA, and Oakland all sporting records below .500, and a huge reserve of cash to blow on expensive salaries. Each of those teams, however, has plenty of quality prospects waiting in the wings, especially Seattle, and it should be pretty tight in the next couple years after they develop a bit. Enjoy it while you can schenk.
The Central has been a much tighter division, with Hazy’s Sox Machine coming out strong and trying to fend off the monster bats of Kansas City. The Sox Machine will probably have a long dynasty of playoff runs, as they’re well equipped with plenty of cash, quality prospects, and a lot of fan support to keep building winning teams. They’re on a ridiculous streak of TWELVE years in a row of playoff appearances, but haven’t won a WS in quite awhile. ThreeRun’s Monarchs haven’t exactly slouched, with all the same advantages sans the fan support, which will grow. It’s gonna be hard to tear away the wild card from the Central for years to come. Detroit, Minny, and Cleveland continue to just be buried by Chicago and KC, despite having pretty quality teams. I don’t envy their position.
And in the AL East, the reigning champ Boe is once again destroying the entire league, winning at a ridiculous 80% clip. It will be short lived however, as the Baltimore salary is plunging him into massive debt. WS title or bust. It should be a definite few years of rebuilding for the Boobie Birds, which should leave the division wide open for the pesky Tampa Bay, who just looks like the sexiest team I’ve ever seen. Hopefully this franchise can revitalize itself from the dark era of computer management, and maybe once again party like it’s 2009. Toronto, NY, and Boston are just floundering in the basement, all with records well below .500. It should be interesting to see which of these teams can get to the playoffs first. Gonna be a long road for all of them.
If you’re reading this and are interested, feel free to speak up and join! The more, the better. And you’ll have your own NL to beat the tar out of. Good luck to everybody in the next couple years. Except you, Boe. Except you.
