Our first signing of the offseason was reliever Luis Aguilera to a one year $1.3 million contract. He'll get a chance to rebuild some of his value after a down year last year (4-6, 2 SV, 4.03 ERA, 73 2/3 IP).

Juan Lopez missed all but 23 games for the Monks last year, and hit just .207 in those games that he played in. I didnít expect a return engagement, but for $1.8 million we'll give him a chance to rebuild some of his value as well. He'll probably never be a 9.6 WAR player who slugs 50 home runs again, but he should be worth more than -0.3 WAR too.

After going 26-4 in Spring Training I feel like the Monks are ready for the season to begin. After playing out the playoffs last year I've debated what to do with the Monks going forward, whether managing games, going back to just being GM, or doing something else entirely.

I've enjoyed my little diversion into managing, but I'm not sure I want to do that at this point. As far as accomplishments go I'm not sure what else is left to do in San Antonio as a General Manager. I mentioned initially that I'd stay until it feels right, and it's starting to feel like it's time to move on to the next stage, or close to that time at least.

I want to see things through with Pedro Torres, and a couple of other players before moving on to the next chapter.

The Monks started off the year in first place with a 19-8 record and hold a four game lead. The bad luck continues for Ron Crouch who we expected to be an ace, but has pitched in 34 games, and he'll be out for the next 13 months after just 2 2/3 innings this year. With this latest injury his time in San Antonio might be coming to a close.

Pedro Torres hit .330 with 8 home runs this month and moved up to 17th place on the career leaderboard list.

On the field the Monks were 16-11 for the month, 35-19 on the year, although our lead in the AL West has fallen to 3 games. We've really struggled this month finding players to play the outfield. At one point our top six outfielders were on the disabled list.

The Monks currently rank 28th in minor league systems. Because of that I've been contemplating a trade to improve our future prospects and finally went through with a modified version of that trade today. Going to the Phillies are Lawrence Sutton, Victor Avila, Tim Gardner, and a pair of minor leaguers.

Sutton is 31 years old and has played his entire career with the Monks. His production has dropped in recent years as injuries and age has caught up to him. This was tough to do though, but the $14 million per year could be better spent, and he's hitting .298 with 16 home runs and 40 RBI, but I'd rather sell high.

Avila is playing his fourth year with the Monks after going from third round pick to top prospect to an injury prone major leaguer. He's shown flashes of brilliance, but not enough to label him as untouchable. Gardner has been with the Monks the past two and a half years and in the final year of his contract. He's been good for the Monks, but won't be back.

Dave Watson is the main attraction coming back. He was named the #4 prospect in baseball before the season started and is just about ready for the majors. Morgan and Carson aren't as well regarded as prospects, or as close to the majors.

Pedro Torres jumped another two spots on the career home run list after hitting 12 home runs this month.

Career Home Run Leaders
1) Sergio Munoz # - 614
2) Roberto Sanchez - 608
3) Armando Ruiz - 594
4) Eric William - 593
5) Greg Ryan - 560
6) Jason Clair - 558
7) Maximo Gonzales - 556
8) Jose Mendoza # - 515
9) Pascal Sisto - 515
10) Esteban Albizu - 511
11) Joe Kaiser - 500
12) Howard McDonald - 494
13) Jack Brown - 487
14) Luke Sutton # - 480
15) Pedro Torres # - 471

The Monks finished the month of June with an 18-9 record and have opened up a 6 1/2 game lead in the AL West. Dave Watson hasn't exactly been a star, hitting .194 with 4 home runs since the trade, but he has provided some solid defense in the outfield. We haven't taken a hit because of the trade at least, and I think our future will be brighter because of it.

The Monks welcomed to the team 33 year old Warren Mathews, who we signed to a minor league contract after Mauricio Maio went down for the year with an injury. Mathews was a former third round pick who made a splash as a rookie hitting .268 with 31 home runs, but it's been all downhill since. Last year with the Twins as a 32 year old he hit .202 with 5 home runs in 79 games, but he's better than what we have in the minors.

As part of my eventual transition away from the Monks GM position I started to allow my assistant General Manager a little more responsibility. As part of those responsibilities I gave him control of the amateur draft, and he loaded up on pitchers with the first five picks selecting Todd Shaw, Gordon Erickson, Jesse Murray, George Howard, and Tim Sharp.

I haven't checked in on Cipriano Castillo since we traded with him, but figured it would be a good time after he won Pitcher of the Month after going 6-0 with a 2.11 ERA. After being traded to the Yankees Castillo went 23-12 with a 3.68 ERA in the next year and a half leading up to his opt-out. It seems like Castillo may have gotten some bad advice or misread the market because he opted out of the final four years and $46 million of his contract to sign a seven year $53 million contract with the Indians. He's off to a fast start with the Indians in his first year going 10-4 with a 2.29 ERA.

While the Monks have struggled a little in July going 13-11 we did open up a 9 1/2 game lead in the AL West. The Monks had four players selected to the All Star game this year, with only one player participating because of injury, Pedro Torres. Mauricio Maio, Christian Johnson, and Phil Schroeder were all selected, but on the disabled list.

This year we took a chance on 16 year old 2B Miguel Arias as an international amateur, signing him to a $3.1 million bonus.

Pedro Torres jumped one more spot to 14th on the career home run list this month.

The Monks have gotten some good production out of Warren Mathews this year. He's hitting .261 with 11 home runs with a WAR of 1.7. That's his highest WAR since his rookie season. While he'll never replace Maio, who was hitting .285 with 13 home runs and a WAR of 2.6 before going out with an injury this year, he's done a good job stepping in as a minor league signing and holding his own.

Pedro Torres is in the midst of a big year, reaching 45 home runs, the most since he hit 50 as a 22 year old. This month he moved within 4 homers of 500 career home runs, looking to be the 12th player to reach 500 career home runs. He passed two players on the career home run list this month, Jack Brown and former Expos slugger Howard McDonald.

During my time with the Monks I've really thought of our offense as Pedro Torres, Mauricio Maio, and Lawrence Sutton. With Maio out for the year with injury, and Sutton traded that left us with just Torres this year, and he responded with one of the biggest years of his career hitting .297 with a career high 53 home runs and 118 RBI with a WAR of 6.3.

He helped lead an offense that scored more runs than any other team in the league, and hit more homers than any other team in the league. The Monks also allowed the fewest runs of any team so it wasn't surprising that our 104 wins was the most of any team in the majors. We should be well positioned for the playoffs.

Torres became the 11th player to reach 500 career home runs this year and moved up one spot on the career home runs list.

After winning 104 games during the regular season the Monks would face off against the Astros in the Division Series. The Astros won 85 games this year and we beat them 8 times while losing 4.

It was a perfect matchup for the Monks, and we won the first three games of the series easily. The Monks would blow a lead in the eighth in game 4, surrender three runs in the 11th in game 5, and blow a lead in the eighth in game 6.

That set up a winner take all Game 7 with 16 game winner Roberto Ramirez on the mound. He lasted just 3 innings as the Monks were stunned by the Astros with a 8-1 loss as our season ended.

Pedro Torres didn't have his typical playoff performance either, hitting just .207 and not driving in a single run! This was a tough series to lose.

This definitely was a tough series to lose. I didn't even really notice how bad of a series it was for Torres. This was his 11th postseason performance, and first time he hasn't driven in a single run. With 172 postseason games he's had quite a run, hitting .299 with 47 homers and 122 RBI. He's never driven in less than four runs in a postseason actually.

Pedro Torres and Christian Johnson won Gold Gloves for the Monks this year, while Torres also won his first MVP Award of his career.

Arbitration was fairly uneventful for the Monks, with the only news of note Roberto Rodriguez declining a qualifying offer. Ramirez has been with the Monks since I acquired him for three players in 2065, and was 16-5 with a 3.87 ERA last year in 34 starts.

We'll likely try to replace him with a veteran arm since we have $35 million for free agents and not many holes.

Spring Training is ready to begin for the Monks after a fairly busy offseason in which we added several players via free agency. Our first signing was outfielder Gustavo Ondrias to a one year $9 million contact. I expect Ondrias to get the bulk of his at-bats at DH for the Monks. At 38 years old he's not the slugger he used to be, but he did hit .256 with 18 home runs last year.

We added Raul Pena on a one year $1.3 million contact. Last year he was 5-10 with 12 saves and a 4.37 ERA in 107 innings. He can start in a pinch, close in a pinch, but his ability to do a little bit of everything should help give us some flexibility in the pen.

Just a few months after trading Tim Gardner we welcomed him back on a three year $18 million contract. I probably wouldn't have traded Gardner is his extension demands were reasonable, but I'm happy with this price.

With Roberto Ramirez singing a five year $66.5 million contract with the Rockies we announced a three year $36 million contract with Oscar Lodge. In order to win the bidding war for Lodge we offered an opt out after one year of the contract. Best case scenario he pitches well in his first year in our rotation and opts out for more money.

Then finally we signed shortstop Edgardo Ontiveros to a one year $1.4 million contact. Ontiveros has good pop in his bat, a great glove, strikes out way too much and hits for a low average. We just need him to provide some depth for the inevitable injuries.

2073 started with a bang for the Monks. At one point during the month we had 16 players on the disabled list, even Pedro Torres for just the second time during his career. So in some ways I should be relieved we are over .500 with a 15-13 record.

Torres had just 3 home runs in his injury plagued month.

The Monks had a 16-11 month to move into a tie for second place.

Pedro Torres moved up to 9th on the career home run list after a huge month where he hit 15 home runs.

While the Monks finished June with a winning record (15-12) we did fall to 9 1/2 games out of first place. The Rangers are proving to be tough competition, but the Monks do control our destiny leading the Wild Card race.

Ron Couch continues to be a pitcher with so much talent that just can't stay on the field. He was 2-0 with a 3.29 ERA after returning from elbow ligament reconstruction surgery and will now be out 12-13 month after rupturing his ulnar collateral ligament.

This was the year I turned over drafting duties to my assistant general manager and he selected catcher Fred Hernandez in the first round, starting pitcher Carlos Espinosa with our supplemental draft pick, pitcher Oscar Taylor in the second round, second baseman David Schmidt in the third round, left fielder Rick Jones in the fourth round, and pitcher Ollie Martin in the fifth round.

Ivan Ruiz of the Padres picked up the 2000th career hit.

With a 15-9 month the Monks have closed the gap on the Rangers and now sit 4 1/2 games back, with the Astros hot on our trail just one game behind us.

It was a fairly quiet month passing on a few deals presented to us, and not being able to work out something to our liking. The Monks re-upped both manager Reese Bell and assistant GM Sam Maxwell this month.

Ramiro Contreras, Spencer Samuels, and Christian Johnson headed to the All-Star Game to represent the Monks.

It was a slow month for Pedro Torres, hitting just 4 home runs.

August was a losing month for the Monks as we went 12-14 and now sit in third place, 11 games behind the Rangers. We'll be shooting for the Wild Card where we hold a two game lead.

Three players hit the 400th career home run of his career - 33 year old Berto Chacon of the Marlins, 33 year old Pedro Martinez of the Cardinals, and our very own 33 year old Mauricio Maio. 35 year old Vinny Sanchez picked up the 2500th hit of his career for the Astros.

Pedro Torres hit 9 home runs this month and remains in ninth place on the career leaderboards.

After 10 straight AL West titles the Monks run is over as we settled for a fourth place finish, but will be headed back to the playoffs as a Wild Card team. It was a disappointing end to the season, and counting October we had losing records for three straight months.

We'll see how the playoffs go, but I don't have high hopes, and we may be due for a little bit of a shakeup this offseason.

Around the league 35 year old Edward James of the Cardinals picked up the 2500th hit of his career.

Pedro Torres hit 9 home runs for the second month in a row and remains in ninth place on the career leaderboards, but should continue his move up the leaderboards next year.

10/11/2073 - Wild Card Series

There is something about stumbling into the playoffs that doesn't give you a lot of confidence, and the Monks were facing a New Orleans Gators team that finished with a better record, and beat us in 7 of 12 games.

But despite everything seemingly pointed to a New Orleans win, the Monks went out and swept the Gators with a 5-3 win in Game 1, 4-3 win in Game 2, and 9-3 win in Game 3.

Christian Johnson had a big series hitting .500 with a solo homer in what could be his final postseason with the Monks. Mauricio Maio homered twice and the Monks live to fight another day.
