The problems with my team

My team is still struggling. I believe that I have diagnosed the problem, but it's a tough one to solve. The problem is defense. I have the starting pitchers with the first and third best FIP in the league, but their overall ERAs aren't that good. It sounds easier to trade for better defense than it is.

The first problem is that owner Josh Guy wants an improvement at first base. I traded Tim Reiss to force manager Brian Graw to play someone else at first. He started playing Joe Sciarratta there, which gave me the number one first baseman. The problem with that is that Sciarratta is a bad defensive first baseman, a great defensive right fielder, and his replacement in right field, Randy Mauer, is a bad defensive right fielder. This year looks like it's lost so if I want to keep my job I'm probably going to have to roll with bad defense at first base and right field.

The other position where my team is bad defensively is second base. Carlos Guzman has gotten older and is a 45 defensively at second base, but he is my best hitter and my franchise's all-time home run leader. The natural thing to do would be to move him to first base, Scirratta to right field, and trade for a good defensive second baseman or even promote one. The problem with that is that Graw doesn't allow me to have any control over the lineups at first so I'm left with the quandary of either firing a manager who has won six pennants or trading the guy who has the second most home runs in the history of the league and is still one of my best offensive players. It's a tough situation to be in.

Every dark cloud has a silver lining. For my team this year's silver lining has been Mat Fuoco. He has always been a player who should be great, but he never has been. This year he has been amazing, and his 6 for 6 with 4RBI game that he just had against Boston brought his season numbers to .344/373/.471. He has been an amazing catcher.

It's July 17, and Chicago has already been eliminated from World Series contention. This is as early as I can ever remember that happening. It is sad to see that happen to a once great franchise.

Boston is trying to catch Baltimore

Boston is clearly trying to catch Baltimore. They have acquired LHP Brad Simons (12-15, 3.65 ERA) from Buffalo for seldom used third baseman Adam Fahey. The Brahmins trail the first place Baltimore Shippers by just 4.5 games.

A Blockbuster Trade

This trade surprises me. I know that Philadelphia has had a bad season, but they have been good for a long time largely due to their pitching. In an era with no free agency, I would have thought that they would hold onto what they have and hope that their players bounce back next year. Instead, they have traded away a superstar pitcher.

Big Switch: Valdez for Coma: A blockbuster trade that includes superstar players was just announced at a press conference in Boston. The Boston Brahmins have sent 26-year-old RF Fernando Valdez to the Philadelphia Congress for 33-year-old LHP Devon Coma.

For the year Valdez is batting .294 with 5 home runs.

This season Coma has gone 9-14 with an ERA of 3.17, posting 110 strikeouts in 250 innings.

On July 24 the Milwaukee Germans have been eliminated in the GABL, but it doesn't look like anyone else really has a chance to catch New Orleans either. The Rebels have had control of the GABL from the outset.

Right on cue, New Orleans has lost one of their best hitters for the rest of the season.

Season-Ending Injury for Wager: Jimmy Wager had hoped for the best, but expected the worst. Today, he learned from the New Orleans medical staff that he would miss the rest of the season. The New Orleans left fielder suffered an elbow sprain in an earlier ballgame. He admitted to being discouraged, but said he plans to come back strong next year.

Wager is currently batting .310 with 9 home runs and 51 RBIs.

With my club clearly going nowhere, I have traded Danny Moreno for prospects.

Moreno, Thompson Swap Clubs: The Cincinnati Abolitionists swapped 33-year-old 3B Danny Moreno for 21-year-old minor league SS Case Thompson, 20-year-old minor league RHP Jeremy Barrow, 21-year-old minor league RHP John Bagwell, 22-year-old minor league RHP Mike Edwards and 19-year-old CF Matt Gibson of the Rebels after what New Orleans officials would only characterize as "difficult" negotiations.

Moreno is currently hitting at a .272 pace with 7 home runs and 28 RBIs.

On August 1, it looks like a three team race in the SSL with three teams within a half a game of first, and it looks like New Orleans is running away with the GABL.

Perez Wins SSL Prize, Named Best Hitter in July
Saturday, August 1st, 1891
When Freddy Perez stepped up to the plate in July, he did it with confidence and today he was honored with the Stars and Stripes League Batter of the Month award.

The young Baltimore right fielder posted a .412 batting average with 4 home runs, 25 RBIs and scored 17 runs. Perez also worked pitchers for 12 walks to post a .470 on-base percentage.

Perez is currently batting .348 with 10 home runs, 63 RBIs and 56 runs scored. He has 114 hits in 328 at-bats.

New Orleans 's Catanzaro Snaps up July Batting Award
Saturday, August 1st, 1891
Mike Catanzaro battered Great American Baseball League pitchers all July and wound up taking home the Batter of the Month Award.

"I've been around American Association of Baseball Clubs long enough to know you really have to work hard day in and day out to be able to put up this kind of consistency," the 30-year-old Catanzaro told reporters. "I put in a lot of work, even on the days I might not take the field, and it's always nice when everything comes together for me like it did this last month."

In 28 games, Catanzaro hit .340 with 5 home runs, 25 RBIs and scored 24 runs.

So far this year Catanzaro is hitting .300 with 10 home runs.

New York's Kite Top Pitcher in July

Saturday, August 1st, 1891
Mike Kite's been around the league long enough to appreciate the honor he received today. After going 8-0 in July, the 30-year-old New York hurler has been named Stars and Stripes League Pitcher of the Month.

He fanned 48 in 78.2 innings, logged an ERA of 3.20 and allowed opponents to hit .249 against him.

Thus far this season, Kite has worked 297 innings with 153 strikeouts en route to a 20-9 record and a 3.03 ERA.

Great American Baseball League Names #1 Pitcher in July
Saturday, August 1st, 1891
Steve Kinnett was a long shot to make the Milwaukee Germans this year, especially being a 32-year-old rookie. Now the Milwaukee hurler has parlayed a 7-3 record into the Great American Baseball League Pitcher of the Month award.

In July, he chalked up 46 strikeouts in 95 innings and compiled a 2.08 ERA.

This season Kinnett has a 12-23 record with a 3.29 ERA.

Stars and Stripes League Names Rookie of Month
Saturday, August 1st, 1891
Ben Rodriguez earned July's Rookie of the Month honors in the Stars and Stripes League for last month's performance. The boyish Boston right fielder might be wet behind the ears, but he's proving that he has what it takes to play at this level.

Rodriguez hit .337 with 1 home run, 15 RBIs and 17 runs scored this past month on his way to winning the award.

This year Rodriguez has hit at a .296 pace and produced 48 RBIs, 4 home runs and scored 48 runs.

GABL Selects Rookie Star of the Month
Saturday, August 1st, 1891
Youngster Josh Doll emerged as the latest Great American Baseball League Rookie of the Month today. The young man from Pittsburgh deserved the honor, batting .354 with 2 home runs and 15 runs batted in. Is the month of July a harbinger of things to come or just a fluke? We'll find out someday, but for now, we'll just let Doll enjoy the limelight.

Thus far in 1891 Doll is hitting .330 with 9 home runs, 59 RBIs, 54 runs scored and has compiled a .362 OBP

You would think that he would have sent this before the trade deadline.

Personal Message from 1B Tom Norman: Cleetus,

It has come to my attention that my client is more suited to a part of the starting lineup and yet you continually refuse to play him in that role. Consider this letter as an official trade request to send my client to a team who respects his talent level and will play him in the role he richly deserves.

Danny Moreno just won the GABL player of the week award for New Orleans after I traded him there. That isn't that big of a deal. He wasn't playing over Mike Kiker anyway.

Tough Break for Baltimore

John "Bones" Lachmann, Baltimore's all-world third baseman, is out for the rest of the season. That is a rough break for a team that has a 1/2 game lead over Boston.

Hitting champs

Cory Boldt of Philadelphia has won yet another Stars and Stripes League batting championship by hitting .389 in 1891. The man nicknamed "Mr. Consistency" has now won six batting titles in his eleven year career, all of which has been played with Philadelphia.

Nigel Tedrow of New Orleans not only won the Great American Baseball League batting title, but he also won the triple crown by hitting .371 with 17 homers and 88 RBI. He is the second hitter in baseball history to win one, with the other being Baltimore's Freddy Perez who did it just last season in the Stars and Stripes League.
