The Stars start the year 15-16 which is better than projected. The pitching has done good as the offense is awful. The Stars TEAM era IS 3.55 which is second in the JY and the team batting average is .235, 12th overall, ugh.

The good news, SP Mauro Flores pitched a no-no vs Seattle. Flores rang up 12 strikeouts and issued 3 walks. Overall this season Flores is 3-1 3.92 ERA, 55 K's in 41 innings.

The Bad news, The Stars SS Harlan W. Moore Moore will miss the rest of the season because of injury. Moore was hurt against the Edmonton Jackrabbits while running the bases. He suffered a ruptured achilles tendon and will be out for at least 8 months. This is a huge loss for the Stars with Moore the 2 time All Star SS gone for the season. The Stars will try Gene Josey to help play SS. Josey was hitting .275 in AAA this season.

The team needed some more offence help signed a few free agents. First they signed CF Jeffrey Land. Land a journeyman outfield is mow on his 6th different team since 2022, has a career .267 batting average will get a shot at CF for the
Stars. In his first 36 AB he is hitting .361...

The Stars also signed utility man Yannick Campione. Campione plays all OF positons and 1B and gives the Stars a player that versatile. Campione in 26 AB is hitting .261.

The last pickup was outfielder Arnaldo Scalia. Scalia has only managed to hit .239 in the MBBA after hitting .280 in the EBA. Scalia in his first 22 AB has 11 hits and is hitting .500

All three pickups wont really be that great but gives the Stars more versatile players starting or off the bench.

Flores is really special.

How you're nearly .500 with that offense I have no idea.
