Notes on Season 7: National League

Fargo has its best season to date with 115 wins, but doesn't make it to the NLCS for the second straight time. . . Instead, Anaheim and St. Louis duke it out again for the NL flag. . . The Archers are the third NL team to win the World Series(Fargo 3x and Toronto once). . . Under new ownership, Tacoma passes the .500 mark for the first time. . . On the flip side, the Beavers finish under .500 for the first time. . . Atlanta has won the NL East for 6 straight seasons. . . Little Rock had their string of four straight division titles snapped by El Paso. . .

Brett Tracy misses 1/4 of the season with a sore shoulder, but still manages to win his 7th straight Cy Young by going 18-5 in 201 innings. . . Kip White sets a Capra record with a .513 OBP and wins his first MVP. . . In 3 seasons Atlanta's Greg Shields is 108/116 in save opportunities. . . Cathcer Jerry West was signed as a cheap, backup for Little Rock and ends up hitting .300 and winning the Gold Glove. . . Melvin Martin wins the stolen base title and has now swiped 164 bags while only getting caught 15 times for a crazy succes rate of 92%. . . Dover's Gene Blair leads the league in complete games in his rookie season with 4. . . Jose "Iron Man" Almonte, Minnesota's all-star catcher, has yet to miss a game behind the plate in 7 seasons. 1134 and counting. . .

In his first season at AAA, 2B Denny Cooper wins every possible award(MVP, Silver Slugger, Rookie of the Year, Newcomer Award), which he also did last season at AA. Christian Grim is 2 for 2 in Cy Young awards as he continues his march to become Brett Tracy's successor. . . Hugh Palmer is a finalist in Cy Yooung voting at both the Low A and High A levels. . . There were no 5-star international signings in the NL. These two guys might have the most promising future: Vic Alicea and David Amaro. . .
