BMO 2012-2013: Sometimes Plans Fail

We all failed. Jim Thome retired. He did not win a World Series. He must now attempt to win a series while managing the Yankees (Buffalo Bombers). I don't know of a worse punishment for the owners in the rest of the league. We may have to root for New York to win a championship at some point. I'm not sure if that can happen.

A very quick look around the league:

AL East - Baltimore keeps beating Tampa while 2 of the 3 remaining teams are getting sneaky good. Toronto is the only team obviously in full on rebuild mode at the moment.

AL Central - Minnesota took the division and looks to have strong competitors from everyone but Cleveland who tore it down to rebuild.

AL West - Oakland won the division and everyone else is in various stages of rebuilding. Los Angeles seems to have been hit hard by FA departures.

NL East - New York and Atlanta are pretty awesome but both missed out in the playoffs. Philly is just not good at the moment but that should set them up with a few nice players in short order.

NL Central - Nobody was that good and it wasn't a very interesting division. This division needs some non-skynet owners to spice it up.

NL West - Arizona took the division. San Diego won 91 games and finished 9 games out of the Wild Card which is a bummer for them.

In the 2011 World Series, Arizona defeated Oakland in a competitive 7 game series. We are currently in the offseason making moves we think will improve are teams but probably won't. As always it is more fun than it should be.

We have around 10 teams available. If you'd like to join in on the fun just let us know in the comments.

BMO Fun.
