June 20th-June 26th

June 20th, 1904: New York RF Armando Chavez and Baltimore CF Jonathan Nagy were Players of the Week.

We remained 5th in the Power Rankings. At 39-32, we are in 2nd place, 9 behind out opponent today, the St. Louis Lightning, and 1 ahead of our next opponent, the New York Rebels.

We were in St. Louis for a three game set with the previously mentioned Lightning. The opener saw Josh Fisher (1-4, 4.99 ERA, 1.45 WHIP) go against Ron Howard (6-1, 4.66 ERA, 1.39 WHIP). We couldn't get anything going on offense, and we were topped 3-1.

Fisher went 8, allowing 7 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and striking out 6.

Andy Palme was 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and RBI. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

June 21st, 1904: We looked to even up the series in a very fair match-up, Cody Hall (5-4, 5.55 ERA, 1.43 WHIP) versus Bobby Brosius (8-4, 2.11 ERA, 0.86 WHIP). But, sometimes baseball doesn't make sense, and we destroyed our hosts 8-2!

Yeah, not too sure what happened here...

Hall looked good, 7 innings with 6 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), a walk, and 3 strikeouts. Simon Ellingson struck out 1 in 2 innings of relief.

Jesus Camargo was a perfect 4-for-4 with 2 homers and 4 RBI's. Jeremy Bell was 3-for-5 with a double and 2 runs scored. Justin Arrington was 2-for-4 with a steal, 2 homers, and 4 RBI's. Zack Lawrence was 2-for-5 with a double. Andy Palme was 1-for-4 with a walk and 2 runs scored.

June 22nd, 1904: We looked to take the rubber match and steal the series with Matt Puckett (7-3, 4.35 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) facing Eddie Long (9-4, 3.50 ERA, 1.15 WHIP). I almost had flashbacks of yesterday, and we won again, 8-2!

One new occurrence was Jesus Camargo leaving with mild shoulder inflammation. He'll miss about 2 weeks.

Giobbe Capauana was 3-for-5 with a double, homer, 3 runs, and 2 RBI's. Justin Arrington was 2-for-5 with a walk and 2 runs scored. Andy Palme was 2-for-5 with a double, run scored, and RBI. Zack Lawrence was 2-for-5 with a double and run scored. Mike Koski was 1-for-3 with a walk and grand slam.

It wasn't really the move I wanted to do, but I DFA'd LF Keith Mundt and purchased the contract of SS Seth Bland.

Bland, 36, will now make a major league at bat for the 12th consecutive season. A longtime defense first shortstop, he's won 5 Gold Gloves and hit a below average .251/.346/.341 with 55 homers and 434 RBI's in 1,361 career games. In Grand Rapids this year, he's hit a little bit better, .266/.372/.365 with 2 homers and 24 RBI's, but he's getting the call for his still elite defense. He'll start at short, Mike Legg at second, and Andy Palme at third while Camargo is on the DL.

We'll return home for a four game series with the Rebels, who are tied with us for second place. We'd see Lorenzo Guzman (1-0, 0.98 ERA), Kevin Miller (8-5, 4.40 ERA), Chris Brown (6-4, 3.66 ERA), and Jimmy Headley (1-3, 3.30 ERA).

June 23rd, 1904: D.J. Ruhnke (10-5, 3.84 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) got the ball in the opener against Lorenzo Guzman (1-0, 0.98 ERA, 1.09 WHIP), who's making his first start of the season after 16 appearances out of the pen. Bland would make his season debut, hitting 8th and playing short. I think our new favorite thing is 8-2 wins, and I'm more then okay with it!

Ruhnke looked better, 7 innings with 8 hits, 2 runs, and 10 strikeouts. Pat Peters went 2 with a hit and walk.

Zack Lawrence was 3-for-5 with a run scored and two driven in. Omar Atillio was 2-for-5 with a homer and 6 RBI's. Jorge Rancier was 2-for-4 with a double. Seth Bland was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Mike Legg was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

June 24th, 1904: We looked to stretch our lead over the Rebels to two, with Nate McCue (3-3, 4.11 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) facing Chris Brown (6-4, 3.66 ERA, 1.47 WHIP). Selfishly, I wanted another 8-2 win, so it only makes sense that we'd drop this one 6-1.

Even better, Tobias Laranjeira decided to pitch in this game, and injured himself...

...

McCue went 7 with 8 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Toshiya Hayashi went an inning with 2 hits, a run, walk, and 2 strikeouts. Matt Macias allowed 3 hits and a run with a strikeout in 0.2 innings.

Andy Palme was 3-for-4. Giobbe Capuana was 2-for-3 with a walk. Jorge Rancier was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

June 25th, 1904: Mundt cleared waivers and was outrighted to Grand Rapids.

We looked to get back in the win column with Josh Fisher (1-5, 4.80 ERA, 1.41 WHIP) facing the southpaw Kevin Miller (8-5, 4.40 ERA, 1.10 WHIP). Juan Villanueva made his first big league start, hitting 8th and playing second. It was close all game, but we fell short in a 4-2 loss...

Fisher went 8.2 innings with 7 hits, 4 runs, a walk, and 5 strikeouts. Juan Londono finished the ninth with a hit and strikeout.

Justin Arrington was 2-for-4 with a triple and two run homer. Andy Palme was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4.

Fresh of the DL, Lightning SP Matt Nesgoda tossed a 3-hit shutout as St. Louis edged Washington 1-0.

June 26th, 1904: Fan Vote Update: Giobbe Capuana is 2nd for 1B. Damian Salcido is 3rd for SS. Justin Arrington is 3rd for LF. D.J. Ruhnke is 5th for SP. Tobias Laranjeira is 2nd and Juan Londono 5th for RP.

The Rebels locked up CL George Mars to a 3-year, $2,100 per year extension. The former 4th Overall pick out of Long Beach State has been one of the best closers in the UBL, with 289 career saves, a 2.97 ERA, 740 strikeouts, and a 1.06 WHIP in 614.2 career innings. He's having a down year, with a 4.50 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 53 strikeouts in 36 innings, and I can't help but think he would've got more in Free Agency.

We'd look to beat his team and battle back for the split, with Cody Hall (6-4, 5.10 ERA, 1.39 WHIP) taking on Jimmy Headley (1-3, 3.30 ERA, 1.10 WHIP). The game was just pathetic on the pitching side, and we were humiliated 17-8...

Hall, who I think I'm just going to release, went 4 with 8 hits, 8 runs, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Pat Peters was pummeled, 1.2 innings with 7 hits and 5 runs. Matt Macias went 2.1 innings with 4 hits, a run, walk, and 2 strikeouts. Rhett Wigmore allowed 3 runs off a hit, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts in an inning.

Justin Arrington was 2-for-3 with a pair of homers, 2 walks, and 3 RBI's. Giobbe Capuana was 2-for-5 with a three run homer. Jorge Rancier was 2-for-5 with an RBI. Andy Palme was 2-for-4 with 2 runs and a walk. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a walk and 3 runs scored. Omar Atillio was 1-for-3 with a walk and sac-fly. Hall was 1-for-1 with a triple.

Philadelphia LF Jim Moran hit his 300th career homer. What looks like one of the best value picks, the former 16th Round selection of Milwaukee owns a career .273/.343/.539 line with 137 steals and 815 RBI's. He spent most of his career with Milwaukee before signing with Philadelphia before last season. This year, the 30-year-old is hitting .249/.317/.521 with 7 steals, 18 homers, and 49 RBI's.

I sent Peters down to Grand Rapids and recalled Jonathan Hyde. The 24-year-old has a 1.64 ERA and 0.82 WHIP with 21 strikeouts in 22 innings with the Bulls.

We're off tomorrow!

June 27th-July 3rd

June 27th, 1904: Tobias Laranjeira was diagnosed with elbow inflammation, and he'll head to the DL for 2 weeks. This coincides with Eric Thomas being eligible to return from the DL, so he was activated. Juan Londono, regardless, will fill in as closer for the time being and Cody Hall was moved to the pen.

Our LF Justin Arrington and Baltimore 2B Jordan Hendrick were named Players of the Week. Arrington went 8-for-24 with 5 homers and 9 RBI's in his first good week of the season.

Down a level in Grand Rapids, Alex Nagel was named American League Player of the Week. He hit .524 with 2 homers and 7 RBI's.

We dropped down to 8th in the Power Rankings. Now 42-36, we are 2 out of 2nd and 10 out of first.

We'd welcome the Red Hawks to town for a three game set tomorrow. Cincy is in 5th and is just half a game behind us. We'd see Humberto Gonzalez (8-3, 3.30 ERA), Mike Rivera (4-4, 4.00 ERA), and Mike Gardenhire (4-5, 4.37 ERA).

June 28th, 1904: We welcomed the Red Hawks to town with ace D.J. Ruhnke (11-5, 3.77 ERA, 1.13 WHIP) taking on 34-year-old Humberto Gonzalez (8-3, 3.30 ERA, 1.27 WHIP). They got to Ruhnke early, and he lost 5-3.

He allowed 5 runs off 7 hits and 4 walks with 8 strikeouts in 5 frames. Ben Follmar went 2.1 innings with a hit, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.

Arrington stayed hot, 2-for-4 with a solo homer. Jeremy Bell was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Jorge Rancier was 1-for-4 with a double.

June 29th, 1904: Looking to even the series back up, former Red Hawk Eric Thomas (7-5, 3.25 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) took on Mike Gardenhite (4-5, 4.37 ERA, 1.37 WHIP). In two starts against the Red Hawks, Thomas is 0-2 with a 6.19 ERA. Down 4-1 in the 8th, we rallied for 2 in the bottom half and one more in the 9th to tie the contest and force extras. In the 12th, Bill Goodwin drove in one on a single off Toshiya Hayashi, and we dropped the middle game 5-4.

Man we just can't win anymore...

Thomas went 8 with 5 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Hayashi allwoed a run with 3 hits and 2 strikeouts in the 12th.

Justin Arrington was 1-for-4 with a hit by pitch and another solo homer. Seth Bland was 1-for-4 with a walk and run scored. Mike Legg was 1-for-5 with a solo homer.

June 29th, 1904: We looked to avoid the sweep with another former Red Hawk Matt Puckett (8-3, 4.23 ERA, 1.21 WHIP) taking on another 34-year-old Nam-shik Kim (7-4, 3.15 ERA, 1.16 WHIP). Tied at 7 in the 7th, we put up 6th runs and escaped with a 13-7 series ending win.

Puckett was roughed up, with all 7 runs charged to him. He went 5+ with 7 hits, 4 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Ben Follmar "blew" the save, but also got the win, 2 innings with a hit, walk, and strikeout. It wasn't really his fault, as the 2nd run was on 2nd with none out when he entered the game.

Mike Koski was 2-for-3 with a double, sac-fly, 2 runs, a walk, and 2 RBI's. Seth Bland was 3-for-4 with a walk, three run homer, and three runs scored. Zack Lawrence was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, 2 walks, a double, and RBI. Andy Palme was 2-for-5 with a 2-run double. Justin Arrington was 1-for-3 with a run scored, RBI, and 2 walks.



Mustangs righty Yeong-shin Kim allowed just 1 hit in an 11-0 domination of Washington.

Our home stand finishes with three against the Cardinals. Chicago is 26-50 and 25.5 games behind the Lightning. They'd send Bobby Golberg (5-10, 6.01 ERA), Manny Melgosa (2-7, 5.97 ERA), and Travis Edwards (4-7, 5.04 ERA) to the mound.

June was our worst month of the year, as we finished 13-14 and fell to fourth place. I'm hoping July will be much better!

July 1st, 1904: New York 1B Roy Luska and Brooklyn 3B Juan Ozuna were Batters of the Month. Milwaukee SP Yeong-shin Kim and Buffalo SP Mark Mitchell were Pitchers of the Month. Washington LF Justin Bigg and Philadelphia 1B Gabe Solis were Rookies of the Month.

In Grand Rapids our top prospect Jorge Montalvo was named Pitcher of the Month. Going 4-2 with a 1.54 ERA and striking out 65 in 41 innings, Montalvo may have pitched his way into the rotation if Josh Fisher has another bad outing. He pitched yesterday, so after Fisher's start tomorrow, he could be available for a callup.

We opened the Cardinals series with Nate McCue (3-4, 4.22 ERA, 1.08 WHIP) taking on the declining veteran righty Bobby Goldberg (5-10, 6.01 ERA, 1.38 WHIP). He looked like his vintage self today, and a pair of RBI singles off Juan Londono in the 9th gave the Cardinals a 2-1 victory.

McCue was good enough, 8 innings with 6 hits, 4 walks, and 7 strikeouts. Londono, however, wasn't, allowing 3 hits and 2 runs with a single strikeout in the 9th. It was his first save opportunity since the Laranjeira injury, and he didn't look up to the task.

Jesse Chesley was 2-for-4 with a pair of steals. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Seth Bland was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Brooklyn's Nick Jones tossed a 5-hit shutout in a 1-0 win over Boston.

July 2nd, 1904: Today the International Amateur Free Agent Pool was released. There are a few impact level talents that I'd try to throw all my money at.

We desperately needed to win this one, with Josh Fisher (1-6, 4.73 ERA, 1.36 WHIP) taking on the southpaw Manny Melgosa (2-7, 5.97 ERA, 1.41 WHIP). Instead, the score was the same as yesterday, and we were edged 2-1...

*Deep Sigh*

Well, Fisher didn't lose his spot, allowing just 5 hits and 2 runs with a walk and 8 strikeouts in 8 innings.

Justin Arrington was 2-for-4 with a solo homer. Jorge Rancier was 1-for-3 with a double.

July 2nd, 1904: Damain Salcido is healthy again, and will head to Class D Little Rock for a rehab assignment. He'll likely be back on the 8th for our series in Washington.

I also extended all my personnel, both majors and minors, that would've had their contract expired. Manager Brett Hunter's contract expires next year, but I'm not afraid to let him go if this skid continues much longer...

Update on the All-Star voting: Giobbe Capuana is 2nd for 1B. Damian Salcido is 3rd for SS. Justin Arrington is 3rd for LF. D.J. Ruhnke is 5th for SP. Tobias Laranjeira is 3rd and Juan Londono 4th for releif pitchers.

I can't belive I'm writing this, but we looked to avoid the home sweep, again, with D.J. Ruhnke (11-6, 3.96 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) facing fellow southpaw Travis Edwards (4-7, 5.04 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). It was even worse then anyone could've expected, and we were crushed 9-2...

We went 2-8 on our homestand...

Ruhnke went 7 innings with 6 hits, 6 runs, a walk, and 9 strikeouts. Cody Hall allowed 3 runs in 2 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and 2 strikeouts.

Seth Bland was 1-for-2 with 2 walks and a solo homer. Justin Arrington was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Andy Palme was 1-for-3 with a walk. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4 with a double.

St. Louis lefty Jim McNiff allowed just 4 hits in a 6-0 shutout over New Orleans.

Maybe the road will treat us better, as we headed to Milwaukee for a three game set with the 41-42 Mustangs. We'd face Mike Rivers (3-2, 5.03 ERA), Yeong-shin Kim (11-3, 2.59 ERA), and Derrick Fullerton (5-6, 4.09 ERA).

If we fall below .500, Hunter is gone...

July 4th-July 10th

July 4th, 1905: Jesus Camargo was ready to begin a rehab assignment at Class C Bay City. He'll likely rejoin the roster with Damian Salcido at the start of our next series.

I also DFA'd Dave Pater, who should easily clear waivers.

New York LF Adam Markley and Cleveland RF Javier Acevedo were named Players of the Week.

Boston will be without young lefty Steve Fessenden for the rest of the season with a torn flexor tendon. The 23-year-old was having an excellent season, working to a 2.00 ERA and 1.19 WHIP with 28 strikeouts in 27 innings out of the pen. He's got closer potential, but this major injury could cause problems.

We're now all the way down to 10th in the Power Rankings. At just 43-41, we're 14 out of first and 6 out of second.

On the road in Milwaukee, Eric Thomas (7-5, 3.34 ERA, 1.26 WHIP) took on Mike Rivers (3-2, 5.03 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). It's nearing panic time, as the Mustangs topped us 4-3 and with one more loss we'd fall behind them to 5th...

Thomas went all 8, allowing 8 hits, 4 runs, and a walk with 7 strikeouts.

Jesse Chesley was 2-for-5 with 2 doubles and 3 RBI's. Seth Bland was 2-for-4 with 2 runs scored. Mike Legg was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Washington's Marcos Hernandez tossed a 1-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts in a 5-0 win over the Cardinals.

I was actually able to dump Pater on the Cyclones for RF Jason Vanover.

Vanover isn't really anything special, but the 23-year-old has a little bit of promise. He's a great defender in center and right, and I'm going to give him some experience in left with Bay City. He's got plus power and won't strike out too much with blinding speed on the basepaths. An 8th Round Pick in 1899, he's definitely worth the lottery ticket.

July 5th, 1904: The Mustangs acquired 3B Juan del Valle from the Cajuns for LF Aaron Lowrance.

del Valle, 29, was once a top prospect with both Chicago and St. Louis before being the odd man out in the Lightning corner infield of stars Chris Boyd and Jordan Carillo. He thrived his first 4+ years with the Cajuns, but the switch hitter as seen his production drop off in the past two years. In just under 1,000 career games he has a .282/.332/.541 line with 237 homers and 681 RBI's.

Lowrance, 23, for lack of better words, is completely garbage. A former 4th Round selection of Milwaukee's out of Miami last year, the lefty doesn't really hit much. He's got great speed and is a decent left fielder, but he's no where near as good as even a declining del Valle. I guess the Cajuns wanted something out of their upcoming FA, but I feel like they could've got more.

To be fair, OSA likes Lowrance, but I have to go off my scout and the fact that he hasn't hit at all in Class D ball the past two seasons.

We looked to stay above .500, but had to face the Mustangs ace Yeong-shin Kim (11-3, 2.59 ERA, 1.01 WHIP). Matt Puckett (8-3, 4.63 ERA, 1.26 WHIP) got the start for us. 5 runs in the 7th and 8th helped us get back in the win column with a 6-3 victory.

Puckett didn't look too good, 7 innings with 10 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and just 3 strikeouts. Simon Ellingson struck out 2 in the 8th for his 2nd hold. Juan Londono allowed a hit and walk, but got his 2nd save in the 9th.

Andy Palme was 3-for-6 with a RBI, steal, and 2 runs scored. Jorge Rancier was 3-for-4 with a walk and 2 RBI's. Justin Arrington was 2-for-4 with a double, steal, sac-fly, and 2 RBI's. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-3 with a two run homer and 2 walks. Mike Legg was 2-for-5 with a double. Seth Bland was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored.

July 6th, 1904: We had a chance to do something we haven't done in what seems like years, win a series, with Nate McCue (3-4, 3.75 ERA, 1.10 WHIP) facing Derrick Fullerton (5-6, 4.09 ERA, 1.38 WHIP). McCue left after just 3.1 innings, but the pen held up and we shut out the Mustangs 4-0!

Jonathan Hyde got the win, 2.2 innings with 2 hits and 3 strikeouts. Simon Ellingson struck out 3 in 2 innings.

Mike Koski was 3-for-4 with a triple and 2 runs scored. Pete McCoy was 2-for-4 with a double, run scored, and 2 RBI's. McCue was 1-for-2 with an RBI double. Andy Palme was 1-for-4 with a steal, walk, and double. Jeremy Bell was 1-for-4 with a double and RBI. Justin Arrington was 1-for-3 with a walk and hit by pitch.

We're off tomorrow!

July 7th, 1904: Luckily, McCue just has a little hamstring soreness, and he'll be good to go for his next start.

I signed a pair of IFA's, C Ulisse Leonetti and SS Gabe Torres.

Leonetti, 16, is from Venezuela and is also part Italian, and rates as a 2.5* prospect. He agreed to a $410 signing bonus, which is about half of the $980 cap. He doesn't have the best arm, but he's good behind the plate, and has an elite eye. He's got a little gap power and even though he doesn't make the best contact, he won't really strike out.

Torres, also 16, is a switch hitter from the Dominican Republic who inked a $110 signing bonus. Also a 2.5*, He's a really weird rated hitter. He's a 73-23-64-1-56, so he's really all over the place. He's a solid infielder, with experience at second, third, and short as well as right field, although he reall shouldn't be used out there. In the infield, he's got a great arm and plus range. He's got great speed and will steal a bunch of bases.

Although of course, there's always a huge risk with IFA's because usually they never reach near their potential.

Cardinals' SP Manny Melgosa tossed a 6-hit shutout as Chicago beat Milwaukee 6-0.

We finish the first half in Washington for a three game set with the Wildcats. At 37-47, they are 20.5 out of first and 10.5 out of second. They'd send Tim Allday (6-3, 4.64 ERA), former Charger Juan Barajas (2-5, 3.84 ERA), and Marcos Hernandez (8-7, 4.79 ERA) to the mound.

July 8th, 1904: D.J. Ruhnke (11-7, 4.14 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) took the mound in the opener against the former two-way player Tim Allday (6-3, 4.64 ERA, 1.37 WHIP). We couldn't really get going on offense, and fell 3-2 in the opener.


Ruhnke went 6 with 7 hits, 3 runs, 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Ben Follmar walked 3 and allowed a hit with a strikeout in 1.1 innings.

Seth Bland was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Andy Palme was 1-for-4 with a double. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Justin Arrington was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Damian Salcido and Jesus Camargo will be back tomorrow, with Juan Villanueva and Mike Legg heading down to Grand Rapids.

Boston SS Drew Wertz launched 3 homers in a 7-5 win over the Pilots. The 25-year-old only had three homers all this year before today's game.

July 9th, 1904: We looked to even the series back up with Eric Thomas (7-6, 3.41 ERA, 1.25 WHIP) taking on southpaw Marcos Hernadnez (8-7, 4.79 ERA, 1.40 WHIP) who jumped ahead of Barajas. The bats rose to the occasion, and we managed 9 runs in a 9-4 win.

Thomas went 7 with 9 hits, 4 runs, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Simon Ellingson earned his 3rd hold, allowing a hit and got a strikeout in an inning of work.

Jesus Camargo was 2-for-4 with a double, hit by pitch, run scored, and RBI in his return to the lineup. Salcido was 2-for-4 with a homer, 3 runs, a walk, and 2 RBI's in his return. Justin Arrington was 2-for-6 with a pair of steals. Mike Koski was 2-for-4 with a walk and run scored. Pete McCoy had a pinch hit three run homer in the 9th. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4 with a walk and two run homer. Andy Palme was 1-for-4 with 2 walks and a run scored.

July 19th, 1904: I added one more IFA, SS Caisto Talone, a 16-year-old (almost 17) out of Venezuela. He inked a $410 signing bonus. Another 2.5*, he's got great speed on the base paths, a plus-plue eye, and is a very gifted defender. He's got a plus arm, plus-plus range, and an elite error and DP tool.

The All-Star rosters were announced as well, with Eric Thomas and Tobias Laranjeira being named to their first All-Star games.

Somehow, former Charger Kab-shik Min was an All-Star over Giobbe Capuana. He hit .264/.318/.567 with 21 homers and 56 RBI's while Capuana hit .260/.359/.576 with 30 homers and 79 RBI's. Min also wasn't even top 3 in voting, where Capuana was second...

The Cyclones will be without 40-year-old Travis Adams for the rest of the year with a torn rotator cuff. He was going strong, 6-2 with a 3.73 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 12 starts, but this may be the end of the line for him.

Our last game of the first half took place between Matt Puckett (9-3, 4.58 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) and former Charger Juan Barajas (2-5, 3.84 ERA, 1.20 WHIP). We tried a late rally off former Charger Justin Pezzetti, but we fell short in a 3-2 loss.

What a way to end...

Puck went 6 with 7 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 4 strikeouts. Cody Hall struck out 3 in 2 perfect innings.

Mike Koski was 2-for-4 with a double and walk. Andy Palme was 1-for-3 with a double, 2 walks, run scored, and RBI. Jesus Camargo was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

Brooklyn's Jerry Smith tossed a 5-hut shutout with 11 strikeouts in a 2-0 win over Newark. St. Louis' Matt Nesgoda tossed a 4-hit shutout in a 3-0 win over the Rebels.

At least we have the All-Star break to bail us out...

July 11th-July 17th

July 11th, 1904: Tobias Laranjeira and Jonathan Simmons will both start rehab assignments in Grand Raipds. Simmons will be back when the break ends, but not sure on Tobias yet.

New York 1B Roy Luska and Baltimore CF Jonathan Nagy were named Players of the Week.

The Power Rankings moved us up to 8th. At 46-44, we are in 4th and 15 games out of first, but just 5 out of second.

The Bearcats and Freedom made a trade, with RF Jesus Hernandez and LHP Tom Stone going to Brooklyn and RHP Billy Hawkins going to Philly.

Hernandez, 25, is a lefty from Costa Rica who's one of the best defenders and baserunners in the game. He's got blinding speed and nearly never strikes out, but he isn't the greatest hitter. In 180 career games, he's a .281/.339/.384 hitter (88 OPS+) with 9 homers, 27 steals, and 40 RBI's.

Stone, 24, is a former 19th Round Pick by us in 1898 who was traded to Philly in 1900. He's yet to make his debut, but he was having a great season in Class B Wilmington, going 12-1 in 18 starts iwth a 1.62 ERA, 0.86 WHIP, and 181 strikeous in 111 innings. He's a really weird rated pitcher, a 1.5* extreme flyballer with poor stamina (30), elite stuff (92), pitiful movement (12), and poor control (32).

Hawkins, 27, is the best player in the deal, but he's having an awful start to the season. Last year, he was 13-10 with a 3.83 ERA, 1.10 WHIP and 209 strikeouts in 34 starts. This year in 18 starts, a 5.20 ERA, 1.25 WHIP, and 100 strikeouts. He's in his fourth big league season, and in 131 games (96 starts) he's 38-36 with a 4.47 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, and 588 strikeouts. The former 19th Overall Pick, by St. Louis, in 1895, he's got a ton of talent, but just hasn't quite put it together yet.

The All-Star game is tomorrow!

July 12th, 1904: A little trade action before the festivities today as the Red Hawks acquired RHP Joe Miller and RHP Tim Edwards from the Calvary for LHP Jose Suchil and RF Mosies Plascencia.

Miller, 30, has now been traded twice in two years, but hasn't had the best success with Buffalo. In 19 starts this year, he's 4-10 with a 4.94 ERA, 1.20 WHIP, and 90 strikeouts in 120.1 innings. He was selected by the Chargers in the 16th Round out of high school, but decided to honor his commitment to Stanford instead. The Rebels then made him a 2nd Round selection in 1896, ande debuted with them for just a third of an inning in 1901. Since then, he's made 53 starts in 68 games, going 18-23 with a 4.08 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, and 293 strikeouts.

Edwards, 19, was Buffalo's 3rd Round Pick last year. The righty doesn't really have starter stamina, but he still profiles as a back-of-the-rotation/swingman starter. He's got plus stuff with average movement and control, but he does do a good job keeping the ball on the ground.

Suchil, 21, made his debut with the Red Hawks this year, allowing 4 runs (2 homers) in 3.1 innings with 4 walks and 4 strikeouts. The lefty from Puerto Rico has more upside then Miller, but if you want to win now, Miller is the better choice. He's got starter potential, but it looks like Buffalo wants him as a reliever in the big leagues right now. A 6th Round pick in 1901, he's a durable innings eater that should eventually find himself at the back of a rotation.

Plascencia, 19, is a Venezuelan native who's extremely far from the big leagues. He's a corner outfielder who is likely just system depth, but he's got a nice eye and decent speed. He also has a cannon in right, but isn't much of a fielder.

On to the All Star Game! Representing the American League is St. Louis' Bobby Brosius (9-5, 2.37 ERA, 0.93 WHIP) and representing the National League is the tired Josh Foster (12-1, 2.76 ERA, 1.04 WHIP) who probably shouldn't be pitching. The NL reigned supreme, and shut out the AL 2-0. Eric Thomas was charged with the loss, allowing 2 hits and 2 runs with a walk in just 0.1 innings...

Well, good thing it doesn't count...

Philadelphia 3B Jesus Ortega was Named All-Star MVP, going 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored.

July 13th, 1904: Every day of the break had a trade, and shockingly, none of them involved the Chargers. New York sent LF Colt Rice to the Patriots for RHP Jalen Ramsey and RHP Josh Loreman.

Rice, 27, was a former 5th Round Pick by Washington back in 1895 and he's played in the majors with Washington and New York. He's a career .259/.318/.552 hitter with 57 homers and 149 RBI's. He hasn't played all too much this year, gong 7-for-34 with 3 homers and 7 RBI's. He's a fringe starting left fielder, but he's not terrible.

Ramsey, 34, is a well traveled relief pitcher who's in the midst of the worst two seasons of his career since a dreadful 1897-1898 stretch with New Orleans. The 19th Overall Pick out of Long Beach State in 1891, Ramsey has tallied 364 big league innings with 6 different teams, including the Rebels, who he pitched just 22.1 innings in half a season with them in 1902. He owns a 4.80 ERA, 1.38 WHIP, and has struck out 351 batters. This year has been one to forget, as he owns a 6.99 ERA and 1.38 WHIP in 28.1 innings.

Loreman, 24, may be the most valuable player in the deal, as he has middle of the rotation potential. A 6th Round Pick in 1901 out of Cal by the Patriots, Loreman is big league ready, but yet to debut. This year in Class A Worcester, he's 8-3 with a 3.88 ERA and 1.33 WHIP in 20 starts. He tosses 4 plus pitches, keeps the ball on the ground, and boasts plus control as well.

We'll start the second half at home, hosting the Cajuns in a four game series. They're projected to use Jaime Bottorff (4-10, 4.11 ERA), Bill Rivera (4-8, 4.98 ERA), Jesse Salvetti (3-4, 5.08 ERA), and Ignacio Mosqueda (4-6, 5.26 ERA). A lot of contenders may send scouts to Detroit, as the 36-52 Cajuns are bound to unload some talent, even though there really isn't much.

July 14th, 1904: 41-year-old CF Matthew Viano will miss the rest of the season with a fractured fibula. Now with the Cardinals, Viano has always been a talented player who could never stay healthy. The former 12th Overall Pick won Rookie of the Year in 1886, and probably should've won MVP in 1890 when he hit .350/.416/.675 with a 8.3 WAR (all league leaders). Instead it went to Jake Edwards, who got it because of his 52 homers and 134 RBI's.

More trade action as Buffalo acquired CF Alex Castillo and LHP Keith Wigton from the Rebels for RHP's Dan Haire and Rob Patterson.

Castillo, 23, is a speedy lefty from Panama who's spent the season in Class B Hartford, batting .307/.360/.420 wtih 4 homres, 6 steals, and 47 RBI's. He won't strike out too much, but he looks like system depth at best.

Wigton, 24, was a 10th Round Pick out of Missouri State by Baltimore in 1900. He's "a pleasure to coach" but really doesn't have too much talent. He's got a ton of stamina, but isn't really good enough to pitch in the rotatin. He's likely just a depth option as well.

Haire, 29, is the only big leaguer in the swap. An iron man reliever, he's got elite stuff and control, but poor movement which leads to a ton of homers. After 7 seasons in Cincy, this was his first with Buffalo, and he didn't do too well. He had a 6.26 ERA and 1.34 WHIP with 35 strikeouts in 41.2 innings. A former 2nd Round Pick by the Red Hawks, Haire signed a 1-year, $2,180 contract in the off-season. For his career, he has a 4.70 ERA and 1.29 WHIP with 340 strikeouts in 388.2 innings.

I wanted to bring Simmons back up, but he only got one game in before the Class A All-Star Break. He's probably going to be back on the 16th.

Back to baseball, and hopefully winning, as we welcomed the Cajuns to town. The struggling and shattered D.J. Ruhnke (11-8, 4.15 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) took on fellow southpaw Jaime Bottorff (4-10, 4.11 ERA, 1.37 WHIP). Ruhnke looked like he did in April, and we came back with a 5-0 shutout!

Ruhke went the distance, tossing a 3-hit shutout with 2 walks and 10 strikeouts.

Damian Salcido was 2-for-4 with a double and 2 RBI's. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-3 with a triple, walk, run scored, and RBI. Justin Arrington was 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and run scored. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4 with a 2-run double. Ruhnke was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

We didn't have the only shutout, as Philly's Noel Kessler tossed a 2-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts and just 1 walk, in a 3-0 win over the Patriots.

I just want to touch on how well the AI has done with Philly, as the 66-24 Freedom are just oozing with talent. Even with injuries, their rotation is insane and they have a really solid bullpen. The offense is great and they have studs at every position with dependable depth pieces at most positions as well. They have 6 3.5* or better infielders as well! After winning their first title in 10 attempts last year, they looked poised to repeat.

July 15th, 1904: Speaking of the Freedmo, they just made their bullpen even better, acquiring RHP Francisco Garcia from Newark for RHP Matt Gagnon, 2B Justin Gaddis, and CF John Yates.

Garcia, 28, was Newark's closer, saving 21 games with a 4.34 ERA and 1.23 WHIP and 62 strikeouts in 45.2 innings of work. In his career with St. Louis and Newark, he has 119 career saves, a 4.46 ERA, and 1.40 WHIP. He won't displace star closer Tristen Wood, but he's probably set for a 7th or 8th inning role.

As a rental, he didn't get the biggest package, so there's a reason why they didn't give up too much:

Gagnon, 19, doesn't look good at all, but OSA is a bigger fan of Philly's 9th round selection last year. My scout has him as just a 0.5* with nothing really special, so I won't waste too much time on him.

Gaddis, 23, looks like the best piece. Philly took him in the 3rd Round last year out of Oregon State, and he's already in Class C Ball. A solid and durable defender at second, he has fringe starter potential, but his floor is a 5th infielder. He's got average contact and not too much pop, but he shoots line drives in the gaps. He gets his share of steals as well, and is a smart base runner.

Yates, 22, is a speedy glove first centerfielder with an absolute cannon of an arm to go with elite range. Philly's 4th Round pick out of Arizona last year, his peak is probably as a 4th outfielder, but he does have a ton of athletic ability. He's got a decent eye as well.

Nate McCue (3-4, 3.58 ERA, 1.09 WHIP) looked to stay hot against Bill Rivera (4-8, 4.98 ERA, 1.57 WHIP). He was far from perfect, but we did good enough to win 5-3.

McCue went 6 with 5 hits, 2 runs, 6 walks, and 6 strikeouts. He also hit three batters... This is a guy with 81 control... Toshiya Hayashi got a hold, 2 innings with a hit, run, and 2 strikeouts. Jaun Londono picked up the save, allowing a hit before striking out the side in the 9th.

July 16th, 1904: Jonathan Simmons returned to the big league club. To make room, I actually looked to move Mike Koski, and found a trade partner with the Lightning in Yu-wei Li.

A 28-year-old from Taiwan, he's fragile, but an effective big league reliever. He's under contract until 1906, and the Lightning are keeping a small portion of the deal. He has a 2.63 ERA and 1.10 WHIP with 18 strikeouts in 13.2 innings, and a career 2.36 ERA, 1.03 WHIP, and 58 strikeouts in 45.2 innings.

Jonathan Hyde was optioned to Grand Rapids.

Simmons hit 7th against the lefty Steve Hudson (9-8, 4.94 ERA, 1.36 WHIP) as we looked to keep our little win streak going. Matt Puckett (9-4, 4.58 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) got the start for us. He got hit hard again, and we were topped 6-2.

Puck allowed 11 hits and 6 runs with 7 strikeouts in 5 innings. Rhett Wigmore and Matt Macias combined for 4 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and 3 strikeouts.

Zack Lawrence was 2-for-4 with a triple and run scored. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-3 with a walk and run scored. Andy Palme was 1-for-2 with a double and 2 walks. Jeremy Bell was 1-for-4 with an RBI.

July 17th, 1904: The trading continues, with the Wildcats sending RHP Hector Peralez and 2B David Bowen to the Mustangs for SS Brian Robinson and SS Adam William.

Peralez, 31, has made a start in each of the last five six seasons, but has been exclusively a reliever this year. In 24 appearances, he has a 3.62 ERA and 1.18 WHIP with 41 strikeouts. A Wildcat his whole big league career, Peralez is a dependable middle inning guy who can give you multiple innings if needed.

Bowen, 21, was a 6th Round Pick by New Orleans out of Trinity High School in the 1900 draft. He's got second division starter potential with a well-rounded bat and well-rounded glove. He's got a plus eye and gap power with plus-plus range at second. He's played in Class B for the first time this year, hitting .235/.327/.404 (117 OPS+) in 38 games after 59 games in Class B Arlington.

Robinson, 24, is an elite defender at second, third, and short. A 2nd Round Pick out of LSU in the 1901 draft, Robinson also reached class B for the first time, but has struggled to a .190/.313/.278 line in 36 games with Class B New Bedford. He was better in Class C Binghamton, hitting .268/.420/.384 in 42 games. He's a light hitter, just 4 homers in 4 career minor league seasons. He's got an okay eye and plus gap power, but he doesn't make too much contact.

William, also 24, is a great defensive shortstop with solid speed and elite base running skills. He's made a few appearances at first, second, left, center, and right, and could easily fill in at third with his plus-plus arm. He's got elite range in both the infield and the outfield, and actually a better arm in the outfield. Another light hitter, the 6th Round Selection out of Virginia hasn't hit too well in Class C this year, but he's there for his glove, not bat.

We looked to finish the series strong with All-Star Eric Thomas (8-6, 3.50 ERA, 1.27 WHIP) facing Ignacio Mosqueda (4-6, 5.26 ERA, 1.51 WHIP). Up 7-6 in the 9th, Steve Stone hit a pinch-hit RBI single off Juan Londono to force extras. In the 10th, Jonathan Simmons decided it was time to end, and launched his first career walk-off homer, a solo shot to finish the series with a 8-7 win.

Thomas pitched wayyyyyyyyy too long, 8+ innings with 11 hits, 7 runs, 2 walks, and 9 strikeouts. Londono got the win, 2 innings with a hit and a strikeout.

Jesus Camargo was 2-for-4 with a double and three run homer. Omar Atillio was 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI's. Damian Salcido was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Simmons was 1-for-4 with a walk, 2 runs scored, and the game winning homer. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-3 with a walk, 2 runs, and a solo homer.

Down in St. Joseph, CF James Rose was 5-for-5 in a 10-1 win over the Lincoln Lions.

Before heading to Cincinnati, I optioned Toshiya Hayashi to Grand Rapids, recalling Tobias Laranjeira from his rehab assignment. We'd spend three in Ohio against the third place Red Hawks, who are 49-44 and half a game ahead of us. Their projected starters were Carlos Flores (1-2, 3.34 ERA), Humberto Gonzalez (11-4, 3.37 ERA), and Mike Gardenhire (7-5, 3.97 ERA).

July 18th-July 24th

July 18th, 1904: Washington 1B Jeremy Stinson and Newark 3B Matt White were Players of the Week.

We moved up a spot to 6th in the Power Rankings. Sitting in 4th, we're 49-45 and 15 games out of first.

We started a three game series in Cincinnati against the Red Hawks with Josh Fisher (1-7, 4.50 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) taking on 34-year-old vet Carlos Flores (1-2, 3.34 ERA, 0.77 WHIP) who is bound for some regression. Tied at 2 in the 9th, we rallied for two off closer Paul Monroe and took the opener 4-2.

Fisher was sharp, 8 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs (1 earned), 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Tobias Laranjeira got the save, a hit and strikeout in his return to the big league club.

Damian Salcido was 2-for-3 with a solo homer, walk, and 2 runs scored. Zack Lawrence was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Justin Arrington was 1-for-3 with a solo homer, hit by pitch, and stolen base. Giobbe Cpuana was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored.

July 19th, 1904: Game 2 saw D.J. Ruhnke (12-8, 3.92 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) take on Humberto Gonzaelz (11-4, 3.37 ERA, 1.21 WHIP). Ruhnke was shelled and the Red Hawks crushed us 8-2.

He allowed 9 hits and 8 runs in 6 innings with 2 walks and 4 strikeouts. Rhett Wigmore tossed 2 innings with a hit, 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts.

Jonathan Simmons was 2-for-3 with a walk and two run homer. Andy Palme was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Justin Arrington was 1-for-3 with a walk.

Wildcats ace Marcos Hernandez tossed a 3-hit shutout with 13 strikeouts in a 4-0 win over the Cajuns.

Cleveland 3B Angel Contreras hit his 300th career homer. Most of those 300 came in Detroit, where he spent 1895-1902 with the Chargers before I let him walk in Free Agency. In 5,093 career at bats, he owns a .300/.346/.540 triple slash with 918 RBI's. This year with the Cyclones, he's hitting .289/.339/.474 with 13 homers and 40 RBI's.

July 20th, 1904: The Cardinals took a big blow to their pitching depth, as 26-year-old lefty Travis Edwards tore his labrum, and it effectively ended his career. It's the 2nd time the former 2nd rounder had labrum surgery, and he determined it wasn't worth coming back. He'll finish a 72 start career 17-28 with a 4.77 ERA and 1.45 WHIP. He walked 118 and struck out 346 in 402 career innings.

We looked to take the rubber match with a battle of red-hot righties, Nate McCue (4-4, 3.54 ERA, 1.14 WHIP) and Mike Gardenhire (7-5, 3.97 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) facing off. Neither looked hot today, although we managed to finish on top in a 9-7 win.

McCue went 7 with 5 hits, 7 runs, 4 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Juan Londono picked up his 6th hold and Tobias Laranjeira earned his 24th save.

Giobbe Capuana was 3-for-4 with a double, homer, hit by pitch, and 4 RBI's. Justin Arrington was 3-for-4 with 2 walks and a run scored. Jesus Camargo was 3-for-5. Damian Salcido was 2-for-6 with a double, homer, 3 runs, and 3 RBI's. Jonathan Simmons was 2-for-5 with a solo homer, walk, and 2 runs scored. Andy Palme was 2-for-6 with a pair of runs scored. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a hit by pitch and RBI.

Baltimore's Dan Bishop tossed a 6-hit shutout in a 10-0 win over the Patriots.

We're off tomorrow, but we'd get a head start and travel to Milwaukee.

July 21st, 1904: We used our off day to travel to Milwaukee for a three game set with the Mustangs. At 48-48, they sat in 5th place and 6 games out of a playoff spot. The projected three were lefty Derrick Fullerton (5-7, 3.98 ERA) and righties Hector Peralez (3-0, 3.62 ERA) and Alberto Lucero (7-8, 5.09 ERA).

July 22nd, 1904: The three game set with Milwaukee started with Eric Thomas (8-6, 3.76 ERA, 1.29 WHIP) taking on Derrick Fullerton (5-7, 3.98 ERA, 1.34 WHIP). The bats lost no charge from the finale, and we pounded the Mustangs 13-4.

We were aided by Fullerton leaving the game in the 2nd with an injury, followed by Bang-zao Xu getting ejected just 20 pitches in after beaming Andy Palme and starting a brawl. Palme was ejected as well, and received a 4 game suspension.

Thomas went the distance, 9 innings with 6 hits, 4 runs, 5 walks, and 10 strikeouts.

Jesus Camargo went 4-for-6 with a homer, 3 runs, and 5 RBI's. Jeremy Bell was 3-for-5 with 2 doubles, a run scored, RBI, and walk. Zack Lawrence was 2-for-5 with a homer, double, 2 runs, 3 RBI's, and a walk. Justin Arrington was 2-for-4 with a two run homer and two walks. Pete McCoy, who replaced Palme, was 2-for-4 with a double, run scored, and two driven in. Damian Salcido was 1-for-3 with a walk and 2 runs scored. Thomas was 1-for-4 with a sac-bunt and run scored.

Pittsburgh's Richard Aguilar tossed a 2-hit shutout in a 5-0 win over the Bearcats. Lightning rising star Bobby Brosius struck out 15 in a 3-2 win over the Red Hawks. He's already struck out 194 batters this year, while walking just 28. He's on pace for 327, which would break Jim McNiff's team record of 318 which he set in 1900. The Lightning didn't have the best history, and their top 10 strikeout leaders have all been in the last 10 seasons.

July 23rd, 1904: The middle match saw Matt Puckett (9-5, 4.88 ERA, 1.32 WHIP) face Hector Peralez (3-0, 3.62 ERA, 1.18 WHIP), who's making his first start of the season after 24 relief appearances. Puckett has done well against the Mustangs, 3-0 with a 1.96 ERA this season. Despite his best efforts, he couldn't improve to 4-0, as we were edged 2-1.

Puck went 8 with just 3 hits, 2 runs (1 earned...), 3 walks, and 5 strikeouts.

Jesus Camargo was 3-for-4 with an RBI double. Omar Atillio was 1-for-2 with 2 walks. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a run scored. We had only 5 hits, while Milwaukee managed 3 and somehow still won...

Even better, three hitters had 5 hit games today! Buffalo 2B John McKenzie was 5-for-6 in an 8-5 win over the Boston. Brooklyn SS Matt Strong was 5-for-6 in a loss to the Pilots. And down in Class C Grand Rapids, 2B Carlos Martinez was 5-for-6 in an 18-2 domination of the Louisville Condors.

July 24th, 1904: The Calvary and Red Hawks linked up for a trade, with 3B Phil Davis going to Buffalo and LHP Jonathan Vogl and LF Esteban Ramirez going to the Cincinnati.

Davis, 31, isn't really that good, and actually more of a shortstop, which is probably why his rating is low. He is, however, on the decline, but owns a really solid .301/.367/.472 career line with 114 homers and 416 RBI's in 910 career games with the Cyclones and Red Hawks. A former 2nd Round selection by the Cyclones out of Arizona, the switch hitter has lead the league in runs three times (1899-1901) and hits once (1901).

Vogl, 29, spent 1899-1903 with Milwaukee before signing with Buffalo as a minor league free agent. He didn't pitch much in the majors till 1902 where he tallied 151.1 innings in 21 starts, but he hasn't topped 80 in another season, with a pair of seasons with less then 10. He's a durable innings eater, but isn't much more then a fill in. In 39 career starts and 10 relief appearances, he's 17-14 with a 4.23 ERA and 1.37 WHIP.

Ramirez, 24, is a fragile left fielder who doesn't offer much on defense. He's slow, but an elite base stealer and runner. He's got plus-plus gap power and a plus eye and is easily a bat first guy. The Venezuelan had a quick 2 game cameo with the Calvary last year, where he was 2-for-7 with a double, homer, 3 RBI's, and a walk, but has yet to play in the majors this season.

We looked to take the series and the finale with D.J. Ruhnke (12-9, 4.21 ERA, 1.16 WHIP) taking on the struggling Alberto Lucero (7-8, 5.09 ERA, 1.36 WHIP). The bats were back today, and we won the finale 7-3.

Ruhnke went 7.1 innings with 9 hits, 3 runs, a walk, and 7 strikeouts. Juan Londono walked 2 in the 8th, but manage to record the final 2 outs. Laranjeira struck out 1 in a perfect 9th.

Jesus Camargo was 2-for-3 with 2 runs, a solo homer, and a hit by pitch. Damian Salcido was 2-for-5 with a two run homer. Justin Arrington was 2-for-5 with a run scored and 2 RBI's. Pete McCoy was 2-for-5 with two doubles and an RBI. Jonathan Simmons was 2-for-5 with a solo homer and 2 runs scored. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-3 with a run scored.

Our road trip continues with three in St. Louis to face the 67-31 Lightning. They are 15 games ahead of us and 10.5 ahead of the Rebels. We'd see Eddie Long (11-6, 3.71 ERA), Matt Nesgoda (10-2, 2.60 ERA), and Bobby Borsisus (11-5, 2.31 ERA).

July 25th-July 31st

July 25th, 1904: Cincinnati 2B Carlos Ruiz and Brooklyn SS Matt Strong were Players of the Week.

Down in St. Joseph, 2B Mike Shaddox, who played in Detroit last year, was Player of the Week. The 36-year-old hit .481 with 2 homers, 7 RBI's, and 10 runs scored.

We remained 6th in the Power Rankings. At 53-47, we are 15 out of first and 4.5 out of second.

We're about to have the toughest stretch of the season, and what likely determines the fate of the season, with three road games in St. Louis, a day off, and then three road games in New York.

Nate McCue (5-4, 3.97 ERA, 1.15 WHIP) looked to stay hot in the opener against the struggling Eddie Long (11-6, 3.71 ERA, 1.11 WHIP). We didn't get off on the right foot, and we dropped the opener 7-3.

McCue pitched longer then he should've, allowing 14 hits and 7 runs with 5 strikeouts in 7 innings.

Justin Arrington was 3-for-4 with a double. Pete McCoy was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Jonathan Simmons was 1-for-4 with a double and run scored. Jeremy Bell was 1-for-4 with an RBI double. Jesus Camargo was 2-for-3 with a hit by pitch.

Baltimore SP Dan Bishop tossed a 4-hut shutout in a 4-0 win over Newark.

July 26th, 1904: Two bottom feeders in Chicago and Newark linked up for a minor deal. Chicago sent RHP Manny Melgosa and RHP Rual Ibarra to Newark for RHP Alfonso Cortez.

Melgosa, 27, is both the best player and only player with big league experience. The former 3rd Overall Pick out of Oregon State in 1899, Melgosa never really turned into what the Bearcats expected when they picked him. In 93 big league games (22 starts) he's 11-17 with a 6.25 ERA, 1.63 WHIP, and 220 strikeouts in 253.1 innings.

Ibarra, 21, isn't really any good, and recently tore his rotator cuff. He's got an elite change, plus fastball, and average slider, but he doesn't really have any control. And it's not the effectively wild either.

Cortez, 23, was Newark's 2nd Round selection out of UCF in last year's draft. He's pitched 8 really good starts in Class D Fairfield, going 5-1 with a 2.56 ERA and 1.03 WHIP with 48 strikeouts in 45.2 innings. He pitched a little in Class C last year, and has back-of-the rotation upside. He has a really good three pitch arsenal with a plus fastball and plus-plus change and knuckle curve. He doesn't throw to hard, but he's got average control and can pitch deep into games.

We looked to even the series back up with Josh Fisher (2-7, 4.21 ERA, 1.26 WHIP) taking on Matt Nesgoda (10-2, 2.60 ERA, 1.01 WHIP). Despite a late scare in the 9th, we held off our hosts to win 5-2.

Fisher looked really good, 8+ innings with 4 hits, a run, 4 walks, and 11 strikeouts. Rhett Wigmore allowed 2 hits and a run with a strikeout in 0.1 innings. Tobias Laranjeira got the save, walking one in 0.2 innings.

Jonathan Simmons was 2-for-3 with a homer, 2 runs, 2 walks, and 2 RBI's. Omar Atillio was 2-for-4 with a two run homer. Jesus Camargo was 2-for-4 with an RBI. Pete McCoy was 2-for-5 with a double.

Buffalo's Jake Doherty tossed a 4-hit shutout with 9 strikeouts in a 5-0 win over the Patriots.

July 27th, 1904: Andy Palme was back from his suspension as Eric Thomas (9-6, 3.77 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) took on Bobby Brosius (11-5, 2.31 ERA, 0.93 WHIP) in the rubber match. Neither pitcher has won against the opponent, with Thomas 0-3 with a 4.50 ERA and Brosius 0-2 with a 3.13 ERA. Brosius was just too good tonight, and we dropped the finale 4-2.

Thomas went 8 with 9 hits, 4 runs (3 earned), and 7 strikeouts.

Giobbe Capuana was 2-for-4 with a double and run scored. Seth Bland was 1-for-3 with a double, walk, and 2 RBI's. Justin Arrington was 1-for-4 with a run scored.

We get tomorrow off, and I may try to swing a trade or two.

July 28th, 1904: I decided to make a splash, acquiring the powerful 3B Ben Etienne from the Cardinals for SP Mark Gibson, SS Pete McCoy, and RP Rhett Wigmore.

Etienne, 31, is under contract till 1910, and has a monster deal making $3,400 this year, $3,920 next year, and then $4,400 every year until 1910. Half of it is being picked up by the Cardinals, which will lessen the blow to my financials. Originally the 1st Overall Pick by Detroit in 1893 out of Cerro Coso Community College, this is the third stint for Etienne with the Chargers. He's a career .282/.342/.574 hitter with 264 homers and 625 RBI's. One of the best power hitters in the league, he hit 50 or more from 1900-1902 and launched 47 last year. This season, he's hitting just .265/.336/.508 with 25 homers and 54 RBI's, but the Cardinals lineup had no other dangerous hitters.

Gibson, 20, was the 9th Overall Pick last year, but he's already dropped to a 2*. He's got elite stamina and plus-plus stuff with a solid three pitch arsenal. He has an elite fastball that sits in the 95-97 range with a plus-plus curve and change.

McCoy, 24, has been an absolute stud since being claimed off waivers from St. Louis. He's a great defender at short and he's got plus-plus contact and gap power. He has a crappy eye, but he nearly never strikes out. The lefty was hitting .343/.359/.495 with 2 homers and 17 RBI's in 99 at bats, with most coming off the bench.

Wigmore, 25, hasn't really panned out well for us this year, working to a 8.40 ERA and 2.00 WHIP with 12 walks and 12 strikeouts in 15 innings. He made 8 relief appearances and one spot start. He's still got middle-of-the-rotation potential, but it won't be with Detroit.

That wasn't the only acquisition I made, as I sent CF Chris Altman to the Patriots for former Charger Tyler Bienvenu. I also had Boston pick up half of his remaining deal, which ends at the end of this season.

Bienvenu, 32, is a durable lefty who's spent a little time closing with Boston, who he spent 1894-1902 with. A former 3rd Round Pick by Washington in 1890, Bienvenu has a 3.89 ERA and 1.32 WHIP with 575 strikeouts and 156 saves in 559.2 innings. This year, he has a 4.70 ERA, 1.79 WHIP, and 30 strikeouts with 6 saves in 30.2 innings. He's rated a 3.5*, and he costed me basically nothing.

Altman, 25, was an undrafted free agent who signed a minor league deal with Detroit in 1902. He hasn't really done much of anything in the minors, but he's got a ton of speed.

Bienvenu would pitch as a lefty specialist and Etienne will play third, pushing Jesus Camargo to second and Andy Palme to a utility role.

Off to New York for three with the Rebels. At 58-44, they are 11.5 out of first and hold a 4.5 game lead over us. We'd see Antonio Gonzalez (4-0, 1.36 ERA), Erik Pike (11-4, 4.22 ERA), and Kevin Miller (11-8, 3.93 ERA) to finish the month of July.

July 29th, 1904: Today was a busy day for trade, with a total of three transactions made:

Cleveland sent LF Jordan Mondragon and CF John Bello to Newark for RHP Chris Reynolds and CF John Yates.

Mondragon, 37, is a long time vet who's been playing since 1890 where he debuted with the Bearcats. A former 2nd Round selection in 1886, the lefty has slashed .299/.360/.538 with 330 homers and 1,011 RBI's. He's not fast anymore, but has 140 career steals after five consecutive seasons (1890-1894) in the double digits. He's been strictly a pinch hitter this year, hitting .229/.339/.354 with 2 homers and 4 RBI's in 57 games off the bench.

Bello, 22, was Cleveland's 6th Round pick out of Sacramento County Day High Schooli n 1899. He's got starter potential, and has elite range and an elite arm in the outfield. He's a plus defender in center and an elite defender in right. He's got elite speed and a well rounded bat. He reached Class B for the first time this year, hitting .304/.368/.463 with 8 homers, 11 steals, and 35 RBI's in 72 games.

Reynolds, 33, hasn't appeared in the majors since 1900, and has pitched in parts of 1895 and 1896 as well. He has managed only 27.1 innings with Chicago and Buffalo, working to a 5.93 ERA and 1.72 WHIP in 5 starts and 5 relief appearances. Pitching strictly as a reliever with Class A Jersey, he had a 1.65 ERA and 0.89 WHIP with 40 strikeouts and 12 walks in 32.2 innings. He's just a 1* as a reliever, but the former 23rd Overall Pick out of Florida Atlantic may earn himself another shot at the big leagues.

Yates, 22, was a 4th Round Pick by Philadelphia in the 1903 draft out of Arizona. He was just recently sent to Newark on the 15th in the Francisco Garcia trade. He's still basically the same player, super fast and super good at defense, but with not bat.

Next was Washington acquiring RHP Carl Firestone and RHP Jose Munoz, and RHP Jim Johnson for 2B Andy Boyko.

Firestone, 36, spent most of his career with the Red Hawks before signing a 1-year, $2,100 contract with Chicago in the offseason. It didn't go as planned, as he had a 5.80 ERA and 1.60 WHIP with 29 strikeouts in 35.2 innings. He did manage 21 saves, but the iron man was 0-5 as well. In his 12 year career, he has a 4.37 ERA and 1.35 WHIP with 679 strikeouts in 659 career innings. The 24th overall selection by Baltimore in 1891, a change of scenery should do well for him, as he's got talent.

Munoz, 19, is a native of the Dominican Republic who's got middle relief potential. He has plus-plus stuff with plus control and average movement. He's got an elite fastball and elite slider, but a poor change and low stamina prevents him from starting. He's a groundballer who sits in the 94-96 range, but age could increase his speed as well.

Johnson, 23, was Chicago's 5th Round Pick in 1899. An Illinois native, he's got swing man potential, but doesn't really have the stamina to start. He's got average control, stuff, and movement, and can graze triple digits with a plus-plus fastball. He's also got a plus-plus curve and plus change, making him an interesting starting pitching option. He's got a little experience at second, first, and short, and could possibly make it as a hitter, but it's unknown if Washington has plans to use him as a two-way guy.

Boyko, 26, is the only guy going to Chicago. He reminds me of Andy Palme, as they have near identical fielding and position ratings. He's got great speed, a plus eye, and slightly below average hitting ratings across the board. He's spent time with St. Louis and Washington, hitting just .198/.291/.298 with 3 homers, 6 steals, and 23 RBI's in 258 big league at bats. The former 2nd Round Pick was selected out of Richardson High School in 1896 by the Lightning, and he does have starter upside in what could be a decent middle infield of former Lightning draft picks with Pete McCoy.

The final trade of the day saw Newark send LHP Sean Till to Buffalo for RHP Marvin Portillo and C Alex Rod.

Till, 24, was a 13th Round Pick out of Texas A&M in 1902. I don't see much in him, but the lefty has an interesting four pitch arsenal with an average fastball, cutter, change, and forkball. He doesn't have much movement or control, and really just looks like minor league depth. He also hasn't pitched past Class C.

Portillo, 30, was a salary that Buffalo didn't really want to pay. A journeyman multiple inning guy with elite control and plus-plus stuff, but with just 18 movement. He's an extreme groundballer who doesn't throw too hard, but he does an excellent job placing his elite change. He's got a plus split and average fastball that sits in the 89-91 MPH range as well. The Iron Man from the D.R. has a 5.30 ERA and 1.36 WHIP with 521 strikeouts in 642.1 innings, split between New Orleans, Detroit, Cincy, and Buffalo. He has made 60 starts, but has spent most of his time in the pen. in 30 relief appearances and 1 start this year, he has a 3.97 ERA and 1.21 WHIP with 44 strikeouts in 45.1 innings.

Rod, 19, isn't the best catching prospect, but the youngster from the D.R. has done decent in Class C this year, hitting .250/.271/.368 with 9 RBI's in 68 at bats. He's not much of a hitter or defender, but catching prospects of any ability are valuable.

Back to baseball as D.J. Ruhnke (13-9, 4.19 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) took on youngster Antonio Gonzalez (4-0, 1.36 ERA, 0.85 WHIP) to open the final series of July. The pitching was poor on both sides, but a Matt Clawson walk-off two run homer gave the Rebels a 9-8 victory.

Ruhnke pitched too much, 8 innings with 10 hits, 7 runs (6 earned...), 2 walks, and 3 strikeouts. Tobias Laranjeira blew the save, 3 hits with 2 runs, a walk, and 2 strikeouts in 0.2 innings.

Giobbe Capuana was 3-for-5 with a double homer, and 2 runs scored. Ben Etienne was 2-for-5 with a solo homer and two run homer in his first game back with us. Jesus Camargo was 2-for-4 with a solo homer. Damian Salcido was 1-for-5 with a solo homer.

I decided I had enough of Brett Hunter, and decided it was best to part ways. Replacing him would be Grand Rapids manager Willis Memmi, who was "Excellent" and better then the "Great" Hunter. Memmi has a "Slightly Quicker" hook of starters, so I'm hoping we get no more 7+ inning 7+ run games...

Memmi, 53, spent 1899-1904 as manager of the Grand Rapids Bulls, going 4603-344 with a Manager of the Year and title in 1900. He's never finished with less then 71 wins, and was 66-38 with the Bulls this year. He's excellent at developing pitchers as well.

July 30th, 1904: Memmi wouldn't be able to debut today, as out game was rained out, and a double header scheduled for tomorrow. Luckily, we have another off day on the 3rd, so I didn't need to find a spot starter.

July 31st, 1904: It was a quiet deadline, as no AI moves were made. If we get swept in this double header, expect big moves...

Or at least rentals being shopped out...

Willis Memmi made his UBL managing debut as Nate McCue (5-5, 4.34 ERA, 1.22 WHIP) took on the struggling Keivn Miller (11-8, 3.93 ERA, 1.07 WHIP) in game one of the double header. Tied at 1 after 9, Damian Salcido hit a solo homer in the 10th, and we held on to win 2-1.

McCue went 9 innings, allowing just 3 hits, a run, 3 walks, and 4 strikeouts. Tobias Laranheira struck out 2 in a perfect 9th for his 26th save.

Salcido was 1-for-4 with the go ahead solo homer. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4 with a solo homer. Jesus Camargo was 1-for-3.

The second game of the double header saw Matt Puckett (9-6, 4.60 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) take on Erik Pike (11-4, 4.22 ERA, 1.14 WHIP). We almost let this one get out of hand, allowing 4 in the 9th before finally getting the final out in a 5-4 win.

Nice start to the Willis Memmi regime!

Puckett went 8+ with 3 hits, a run, 2 walks, and 5 strikeouts. Matt Macias allowed 2 hits and 2 runs on just 2 pitches. Tobias Laranjeira got the save, 2 hits and a run with a strikeout in the 9th.

Ben Etienne was, who already had 4 career homers off Pike, was 3-for-4 with 2 more homers and 4 RBI's. Jesse Cheseley was 2-for-4 with 2 doubles and 2 runs scored. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-4 with a solo homer.

Phildelphia SP Billy Hawkins tossed a 3-hit shutout in a 9-0 wino ver the Venom.

Washington 2B Pat Kesselman hit his 400th career homer. The 5th Overall Pick in 1886 by Brooklyn, the 36-year-old Kessleman has still found greatness with a myriad of injuries. In 1933 career games with Brooklyn, New Orleans, New York, and Washington, he's hit .264/.364/.502 with 187 steals and 1,074 RBI's. In 72 games this year, he's hitting just .226/.317/.448 with 12 homers and 25 RBI's in the 4th year of a 5 year deal.

It was a shaky July, but it's on to August, where last year, we got really hot. We'd start off with a three game set at home against the 37-66 Chicago Cardinals. They'd go with Bobby Goldberg (7-11, 5.34 ERA), Angel Garcia (3-7, 9.00 ERA), and Tony Downs (2-4, 3.91 ERA).

August 1st-August 7th

August 1st, 1904: Before the Player of the Month Awards, are the Players of the Week, New Orleans LF Angel Zuniga and Philadelphia 2B Jon Wickham.

In the Great Lakes League, our RF Mike Heinemann was named Player of the Week, hitting .458 with 2 homers and 8 RBI's.

New York 1B Roy Luska and Philadelphia CF Jon Alvarado were Batters of the Month. St. Louis SP Bobby Borisus and Brooklyn SP Jerry Smith were Pitchers of the Month. Former Charger and Current Cardinal SS Pete McCoy and Baltimore 3B Jung-sang Park were Rookies of the Month.

McCoy hit .392 with a homer and 10 RBI's, and was 7-for-11 since the trade.

We dropped to 7th in the Power Rankings. At 56-50, we sit 16 out of first and just three and a half out of second.

We were back home for the first time in what felt like forever, where we hosted the last place Cardinals. Eric Thomas (9-7, 3.75 ERA, 1.28 WHIP) got the start against Bobby Goldberg (7-11, 5.34 ERA, 1.40 WHIP). We gave up 3 in the 8th, and dropped the opener 5-4...

Thomas went 7.2 with 11 hits, 5 runs (4 earned...), 2 walks, and 6 strikeouts. Three relievers combined for 1.1 innings with 2 hits, a walk, and 2 strikeouts.

Ben Etienne was 2-for-3 with a walk, triple, run scored, and RBI against his former team. Jesse Chesley was 2-for-4 with a run scored and RBI. Damian Salcido was 2-for-4 with a walk and RBI. Jeremy Bell was 2-for-4 with a run scored. Jorge Rancier was 2-for-5.

Pittsburgh SP Richard Aguilar tossed a 4-hit shutout with 12 strikeouts in a 5-0 win over Newark.

August 2nd, 1904: We looked to even the series back up with Josh Fisher (3-7, 3.97 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) facing Angel Garcia (3-7, 9.00 ERA, 1.97 WHIP) who's spent most of the season pitching out of the pen. Despite command problems, Fisher continued his hot stretch, and we evened the series with a 6-3 win!

Fisher almost went the distance, 8.1 innings with 4 hits, 2 runs, 7 walks, and 9 strikeouts. Yu-wei Li allowed a hit and run in 0.2 innings.

Justin Arrington went 3-for-4 with a steal, double, run scored, and 3 RBI's. Omar Atillio was 2-for-3 with 2 runs scored. Giobbe Capauana, Zack Lawrence, and Jesus Camargo were all 1-for-4 with solo homers.

August 3rd, 1904: The final game of the series saw southpaws D.J. Ruhnke (13-9, 4.30 ERA, 1.19 WHIP) and Tony Downs (2-4, 3.91 ERA, 1.18 WHIP) go head-to-head. Ruhnke looked amazing, and we cruised to a 7-1 victory.

D.J. went 8 with 3 hits, a run, 3 walks, and 8 strikeouts. Cody Hall struck out 2 in a perfect 9th.

Justin Arrington was 2-for-4 with 2 runs, 3 RBI's, and a homer. Ben Etienne was 2-for-4 with a double and three run homer. Damian Salcido was 2-for-3 with a double, solo homer, and walk. Zack Lawrence and Giobbe Capuana were both 1-for-4 with a run scored.

We're off tomorrow!

August 4th, 1904: We were off today, but in Grand Rapids, Jorge Montalvo struck out 16 in a 1-0 win over the Jersey Devils. In 8 innings he walked just 1 and allowed only 2 hits.

The Wildcats would join us tomorrow for a three game set. At 51-55, they are 22 out of first and 10.5 out of second. We'd see Jose Gonzalez (4-5, 3.67 ERA), Willis Salinas (9-9, 4.69 ERA), and Juan Barajas (3-6, 3.55 ERA).


August 5th, 1904: We passed the draft pick signing deadline, and all our unsigned draftees announced where they'd continue their careers. Next year, we receive an extra supplemental pick, the 2nd pick in the 2nd round, and the 15th pick in the 3rd round. Here's where our guys are heading:

1st Round: C Tom McIlwain (Princeton 1907)
2nd Round: RHP Kevin Hogan (Georgia 1907)
3rd Round: CF Israel Martinez (Bradley 1907)
7th Round: C John Liening (Chipola 1907)
13th Round: C Casey Hart (York 1905)
15th Round: SP Javier Orozco (North Carolina 1907): Totally perdicted this one!

Back to baseball as the Wildcats and Willis Salinas (9-9, 4.69 ERA, 1.46 WHIP) were in town and took on Nate McCue (6-5, 4.05 ERA, 1.17 WHIP) in the opener. We couldn't get the offense going at all, and were shutout 5-0.

McCue went 7 with 6 hits, 5 runs, a walk, and 6 strikeouts.

Damian Salcido was 2-for-4. Ben Etienne was 1-for-3 with a walk. Jonathan Simmons and Jesus Camargo were both 1-for-4.

Milwaukee's Sean Donald tossed a 5-hit shutout in a 4-0 win over Chicago.

August 6th, 1904: We looked to even the series back up with Eric Thomas (9-8, 3.79 ERA, 1.30 WHIP) facing the red-hot Tim Allday (7-3, 4.28 ERA, 1.36 WHIP). Thomas is a perfect 3-0 with a 3.00 ERA against Washington so far this season. He had no such luck today, and we were crushed 11-3...

Thomas allowed 10 hits and 10 runs in 4.2 innings with 3 walks and 4 strikeouts. Cody Hall went 4.1 innings with 4 hits, a run, 2 walks, and a strikeout.

Jesus Camargo was 2-for-4 with a run scored and RBI. Zack Lawrence was 1-for-4 with a two run homer. Damian Salcido was 1-for-4 with a run scored. Jonathan Simmons was 1-for-3 with a hit by pitch.

August 7th, 1904: We looked to avoid the sweep with Matt Puckett (10-6, 4.40 ERA, 1.24 WHIP) facing Jose Gonzalez (4-5, 3.67 ERA, 1.29 WHIP). Our woes continued, and the Wildcats finished off the sweep with a 9-5 win.

I guess our season finishes a little earlier this year then last...

Puck was shelled for 9 hits and 8 runs in 3 innings. He walked 2 and struck out 4. Matt Macias tossed 2 innings with 2 hits, 2 walks, and 2 strikeouts. Simon Ellingson tossed 2 innings and struck out 4. Ben Follmar tossed 2 more, but allowed 2 hits and a run with 2 strikeouts.

Ben Etienne was 3-for-5 with 2 doubles and a solo homer. Justin Arrington was 2-for-3 with a double, 2 walks, and solo homer. Giobbe Capuana was 1-for-3 with a homer, 2 runs, 2 RBI's, and 2 walks.

Pittsburgh's Bryce Kelly tossed a 4-hit shutout and struck out 9 in a 4-0 win over Boston.

Luckily, we're off tomorrow, and we'd be able to stay at home with hopes of getting back on track.
