Notes on Season 7: American League

The defending World Series Champs pace the AL all season with 109 wins, their best to date, but get trumped in the post-season by the Roadrunners, who go on to the third World Series appointment. . . All 4 division winners(Montreal, Albuquerque, Jackson, and San Juan) repeat their division crowns from S6. . . Abuquerque has now won the division 5 straight seasons and has been to the Series in three of those, but remains a bridesmaid, so to speak. . . Since S3, Honolulu's minor league teams have made the playoffs in 18 of 25 tries. Meanwhile, the big league team hasn't been invited since S1. . . Jackson's Low A team has now won the World Series 4 straight seasons and running. . . Las Vegas fans are losing patience as the Longballers have now dropped 302 games over the last 3 seasons.

Diego Santana. Diego Santana. Diego Santana. . . Elsewhere, Dennys Yamakazi keeps getting better as he gets older and wins CY #3. . . 36 year-old reliever Terry Blauser was on the trading block before the season, but ended up staying put in Ottawa and winning Fireman of the Year while having his best season to date. . . Counting minor league play, Oswaldo Cabrera has now won Gold Gloves at 3 different positions. . . Mikey Tatum is now 285/299 in Stolen Bases in his career.

Minor Leaguers coming soon.

Almonte was an on-base machine, with 7 seasons of .400 OBP or better. That was also his career mark and he had 7 100-walk seasons. He also scored 92 or more runs each of the first 5 seasons of Capra, and hit 38 doubles in season 4. A forearm nerve injury ended his record games-played streak, particularly impressive considering he was a catcher.
