S19 National League Predictions

NL North

Minnesota North Stars (100-62)

Newcomers Darren Owens and Jorel McGlinchy should propel Minnesota into the upper echelon of NL teams. Explosive offense, air-tight defense and just enough pitching.

Pittsburg Typhoon (80-82)

Led by Christian Grim, Pittsburg easily boasts the best rotation in the division. Offense gets on base a lot, but the team is missing the power bats to drive them in. However, Pittsburg could be a dark horse come playoff time.

New York Yanks (80-82)

Zachary Grace and co. supply plenty of offense, rotation filled with solid innings-eaters. Unless ownership decides to hold a fire sale at mid-season, the Yanks might challenge for a WC spot.

Toronto Beavers (74-88)

Quietly picking up some quality players, but probably still a year away from making some noise.

NL East

Louisville Redbirds (96-66)

Trades two top pitchers to division rival which should make for a very tight race. However, with power hitters Lonny Murray and Don Barnes, Redbirds still have the best offense in the division.

Iowa City Tornadoes (96-66)

Led by Charlie Gulan, the Tornadoes boast a deep and tough pitching staff. NL East should come down to the wire.

Baltimore Boogeymen (76-86)

Boogeymen are putting together a well-constructed team, but could use another big bat or two.

Syracuse Sicilians (75-87)

A well-rounded pitching staff should keep them competitive, but lack of offense will likely hold them back.

NL South

Jacksonville Stonewallers (85-77)

Plenty of offense, but will Jacksonville be able to overcome a lack of pitching depth? NL South is shaping up to be a rough and tumble division this season.

Little Rock Travelers (85-77)

Led by Abdul Thomas and Ismael Guillen, Travelers are definitely playoff contenders. Look for the division race to be a nail biter.

Atlanta Aces (79-83)

The Hayes brothers (Rudy and Louie) should quickly become Atlanta fan favorites. Probably still a year away, but could be a surprise team this season.

Florida SunRays (62-100)

Looks to be a tough year in Florida, as the team continues to rebuild.

NL West

Anaheim Anteaters (102-60)

Is a repeat in their future? Led by Jose Sosa and Vasco Almonte, the defending champs own the best pitching staff in all of Capra.

Vancouver Maintaineers (92-70)

Big boppers Jimmie Franco and Tony Unanumo + a deep staff should return Vancouver to the playoffs and keep them within shouting distance of Anaheim.

Seattle Picards (91-71)

Led the league in OPS and underrated pitching staff finished second in ERA. However, holes in the defense may trip them up.

St. Louis Archers (76-86)

Beginning the rebuilding process as longtime superstars set career record marks.


NL North winner = Minnesota NL East winner = Louisville

NL South winner = Jacksonville NL West winner = Anaheim

NL Wildcards = Iowa City, Vancouver

NL Championship = Anaheim over Minnesota in 6 games

World Series = Cleveland over Anaheim in 7 games

HBD Ballpark Factors

Ballpark effects are ranked on a scale from - 4 to + 4, based on their impact on hits (1B), doubles (2B), triples (3B), home runs to left field (HR LF) and home runs to right field (HR RF). The more negative or positive number, the more extreme the effect for that hit in that direction. These numbers are just indicators of the relative effect in the simulation engine. They are important for users and founded entirely on historical fact, but are meant for display purposes and not explicitly used in the simulation engine.

Sioux Falls-Cricket did a nice job setting up this franchise for the future and the lineup is pretty solid but the pitchers are still in the minors.14. Cleveland- dcbove is in the process and building a monster again but most of the prospects will stay in the minors this year.13. Burlington-On to the rebuilding teams. Burlington takes a jump forward with veterans like the signing of Matos and trade for Flier while the prospects continue to come up12. Huntington-Formerly Columbus team which pitching staff will show up this year. The season 46 staff that led them to the division title or season 47 with almost the same staff that gave up 200 runs more. Moving to hitters park in Huntington makes me vote for 47 but could go either way.11. Chicago-Transitioning team that felt the loss of Zumaya last year and Bradf…
