LEE 3 HUL 0: Cabrera 8.0 IP, 4 H, 0 ER, 0 BB. Richard 2-4, HR, DBL. Flores SV (10). [47-35]

LEE 5 HUL 3: Kemp 7.0 IP, 3 ER. Richard 2-5, DBL. Fuentes 2-3, BB. [48-35]

Kenshin Hayashi wants a contract extension. I'd love him to stay but I simply won't pay him the $29m per year he's seeking. All the best in the future, Kenshin, and bring me a nice draft pick.

LEE 4 HUL 5: Magana 2-4, DBL, 2 BB. Fuentes 2-3, SB. Jermaine Cooper took to the mound for us midway through the 12th. In the top of the 14th, he hit a beautiful RBI double to give us a 4-3 lead. Unfortunately he then proceeded to give up 2 runs: both technically unearned but after his own error. And lo and behold, another extra innings defeat for the Hedgehogs. [48-36, =1st place, with NEW]

Cumbria's Darrel Keller pitched his second 4-hit shutout of the season against the Wizards. The previous one was in May.

MAN 4 LEE 5: Hayashi 2-5, HR, TPL, BB. James 3-4. A reversion of yesterday. The Falcons took a 4-3 lead in the top of the 13th, but Hayashi's walk-off 2 run homer sealed an unlikely extra innings turnaround win. After his eventful 2.2 IP yesterday, Jermaine Cooper pitched 3 scoreless innings today. [49-36]

MAN 6 LEE 1: García 3-3, DBL, SB. James 2-4, DBL. [49-37]

MAN 6 LEE 5: Page 2-4, HR. Fuentes 2-5. [49-38, 2nd place, 2 GB from NEW]

6 Jul 2042 - rest day

We've had a sequence of tough series against playoff contenders, and we went 3-6 in that time. We're still in the hunt, but that was disappointing.

Alex Frye has agreed to resume contract discussions. He's going through a cold spell so I though this was the perfect time. He still wants 6 years, at $22m per year. I've offered him the salary, but for 4 years.

Pedro Magana will become my full-time CF, taking over from Jim Mullins. Mullins has struggled this season (.299 wOBA) and I had a jam at 3B where Magana and Fuentes were sharing playing time. Magana wasn't happy about not being an everyday starter, and I decided I didn't want to make a lad angry who has the potential to become an incredible hitter. I explored trades for Mullins and had a deal lined up with Westminster for a young outfielder called Mark Hebert, but I pulled out because I didn't feel it was good value. In any case, Magana's versatility means that if I get a single injury in the lineup (and I've been lucky with injuries so far this season) then Mullins will be a starter again.

I've offered Juan Fuentes a one-year extension worth $12.5m. He wanted an 8-year deal at that annual value, but no chance.

7-9 Jul 2042

Luis Rea is trying to make me look like a right plonker for trading him. He's just got NL player of the week after hitting 14-27 with 5 HR and 11 RBI.

LEE 7 LIV 8: Richard 2-5, 2 DBL. Hayashi 2-5, 2 DBL. [49-39]

We broke the news after the game that Alex Frye has signed a new 4-year contract worth a total of $88m. That ties him up until the end of the 2046 season. The fans were absolutely ecstatic. I'm very pleased, too - he's a vital part of the offense here.

LEE 6 LIV 2: McGinnity 8.0 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 0 BB, 7 K. James 2-5, TPL, DBL. Richard 4-5. Frye 3-5, DBL. I can nearly always rely on McGinnity to stop a rot. [50-39]

LEE 6 LIV 1: Cabrera 9.0 IP, 8 H, 1 ER, 1 BB. Fuentes 3-4, HR, BB. Frye 3-5, 2 DBL. It only took Armando Cabrera 99 pitches to see off the Emeralds today. [51-39, 2nd place, 2 GB from NEW, 2 game lead over wildcard]

We now hold the second NL wildcard spot, with a 2 game lead over Liverpool and Blackpool who lead the chasing pack. Things are just starting to get shaken out a little in the standings.

STO 4 LEE 11: Frye 4-4, HR, DBL, BB. Richard 4-5, DBL. Alex Frye has now gone 10-14 with a HR and 4 doubles in the three games since signing his new contract. Tim Richard has been off the scale this season, batting .361 for 133 hits, which both lead the EBA. He has a clear lead over legendary Falcons outfielder Bobby Fields in the race for the NL batting title (Fields is hitting .343). [52-39]

STO 4 LEE 5: Frye 3-5, TPL. Benítez 5.0 IP, 7 H, 4 ER, 4 BB. An unbelievable comeback win. Benítez has gone off the boil recently, and the Sky Chiefs plunked him for 4 runs in the 4th. We pulled a run back in the 7th but were still trailing 4-1 heading into the bottom of the 9th. Cue the offense. 4 hits, 3 walks and only 1 retired batting later the game was ours, Ed James getting walked in for the winning run. The Sky Chiefs's furious manager couldn't bring himself to even look at his bullpen guys as he stalked off the field. [53-39]

STO 4 LEE 5: Richard 2-3, BB. Fuentes 2-4. Kemp 6.0 IP, 8 H, 3 ER, 0 BB. This has been an entertaining series but Stoke will be kicking themselves for getting swept. Today they surged to a 3-0 lead in the top of the 1st. But their defensive let them down and they committed three crucial errors. All 5 of our runs were unearned. [54-39, 2nd place, 1 GB from NEW, 2 game lead over wildcard]

LEE 3 WOL 2: McGinnity 8.0 IP, 5 H, 2 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K, 1-2. Page 1-2, 2 BB. [55-39]

LEE 2 WOL 5: Cabrera 6.0 IP, 8 H, 5 ER. [55-40]

LEE 14 WOL 6: Richard 4-5, TPL, 2 DBL. Mullins 2-4, HR, DBL, BB. Frye 3-6, 2 DBL. Fuentes 3-, 2 DBL. [56-40, 2nd place, 1 GB from NEW, 2 game lead over wildcard]

COV 3 LEE 8: Mullins 2-4, 2 HR (15), 6 RBI. Benítez 7.1 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 3 BB, 8 K. Mullins took the Bumblebees pitching to the cleaners, smashing two 3-run homers. It was a welcome return to form for Benítez. [57-40]

COV 2 LEE 4: Richard 2-3, DBL, BB. Kemp 6.0 IP, 7 H, 2 ER. There was a heart-stopping moment when Alex Frye came out of the game in the 2nd inning with a sore leg. Fortunately Art Attack immediately decided it wasn't serious, and Frye will play tomorrow. [58-40]

COV 4 LEE 6: McGinnity 8.0 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 10 K. Hayashi 2-3, HR, BB. A great moment as Kenshin Hayashi, in front of his home fans, smashed the 400th home run of his wonderful career. He smoked it a full 432ft for good measure. The clamour is growing for me to keep him here next season. I'd like to, but only if he's be prepared to take a massive pay cut. [59-40, =1st place with NEW, 2 game lead over wildcard]

19 Jul 2042 - rest day

Juan Fuentes has asked his agent to seek a contract extension to remain a Hedgehog. The problem is, he turns 28 next month but still wants an 8-year deal. No hope and Bob Hope. The $14.5m annual amount he seeks is reasonable, but 4 years is my maximum. If he turns it down, I'll reluctantly look for a pre-deadline trade. But it'd have to be a good deal. I think I may prefer to hang onto him and take my chances on getting him back as a free agent over the winter.



On the whole, our pitching has steadily improved as the season has gone on. I've run out of superlatives to describe Brian McGinnity. Bertoldo Chiappo is clinging onto the lefty middle relief spot by his fingertips. He's lucky there is now no immediately ready young lefty prospect waiting in the minors or else he might be gone already. Brandon Krieger is closest but not there yet.

Elsewhere, I made my first demotion of one of the active roster on opening day. Máximo Morales has been sent down, and young left fielder Louie Campbell has been promoted in his place. I love Morales's outstanding defense, but his hitting (.543 OPS) isn't good enough. Campbell is only a very mild downgrade defensively, but should get bat on ball a lot more frequently.

The Manchester Falcons have won the North West Division 7 of the last 9 years, and at 64-35 are well on course to make it 8 in 10. The Islington Foxes are the surprise runaway team in the Southern League and stand at 67-32. They've made only 1 Cup Final Series appearance, back in 2022 when they lost to the Wizards. That said, it's 1 more appearance than this franchise, despite my best efforts.

LEE 2 SHE 6: Fuentes 2-4, HR, DBL. Cabrera 3.1 IP, 9 H, 6 HR. Armando Cabrera has been frustratingly inconsistent this year. He served up absolute dross today. He'll have probably one more start before the trade deadline, and if I get more of this nonsense I might pick up the phone. [59-41]

LEE 8 SHE 4: Richard 2-5, HR. Flores SV (16). Another late escape. 4-3 down entering the top of the 9th, at one point we were one strike away from defeat. But Hayashi ultimately drew a walk in the plate appearance, loading the bases. Rich Mitchell drew another walk to tie the game. Tim Richard stepped up to the plate. A wild pitch allowed Jim Mullins to score the go-ahead run, the two pitches later Richard smashed a 3-run homer to make the game safe. [60-41]

Juan Fuentes has agreed to take the 4-year contract on offer. Good lad. Rich Mitchell is now the last of the hitters on an expiring contract that I want to tie up. Hopefully we'll settle somewhere around $60m over 4 years.

LEE 8 SHE 5: Frye 2-5, 2 HR (25). Magana 2-5, HR. Fuentes 3-5, TPL. Richard 3-5, DBL. [61-41, 1st place, 2 game lead over NEW, 4 game lead over wildcard]
