Dugout Dirt 2041.16 - Beirut Draft Classes - Where are they now?

Just curious as to what the UMEBA is adding to the gene pool via the draft. Looking at the three previous drafts to this one (maybe all three?), I have yet to see Beirut adding much fodder to potentially go to the show at this point. It almosts points to the UMEBA being a stage for encore more than ...

Dugout Dirt 2041.15 - Two Years after Re-org

In just under the two years since the Beirut Cedar re-organization of 2039 that brought in the bright-eyed and bushy-tailed new GM, the Beirut Cedars changed 19 of the 27 players on the roster. Out of those 8 remaining players, three of them were placed in different positions. This new band of playe...

Dugout Dirt 2041.14 - Week 8 Summary

The Cedars began their 20 game road trip with a rousing start as they won 2 out of 3 games against the defending champs in Jerusalem and then took 2 out of 3 against Bucharest. The first game started out with a pair of 2-run homers by Pierre Cordona and OIliver Ruiz in the first inning an then rode ...

Re: Growing old in Cairo (2041-12)

Mackey was my favorite player in the entire draft. I think he will be a bonefide stud once he develops.

Re: An Informal State of the UMEBA: A Look from the Outside In

Nice article. :) Next off-season will definitely be interesting in the UMEBA. Beirut will probably go into the off season with about $27M already committed.

Dugout Dirt 2041.13 - 2041 Draft Class

The Beirut Cedar front office was in the midst of a flurry of activity during the UMEBA 2041 Draft. All of the owners seemed to be prepared and knowing what they wanted as the picks were fast and furious throughout the 8 round draft. For the Cedars, the initial draft grade is evaluated at a B -.

Putting the BOSS in Bosphorus

Looking league best Istanbul Bosphorus with a 25-11 record, and there are some numbers that say this may just be the beginning. Along with winning 25 of 36 games, Istanbul has only played 6 of those games at home. Their road record is 21-9. A few other splits for the BOSSphorus at this point: Agains...

Re: UMEBA Draft 2041 chatter

BTW, Mackey was a clear #1 on my list. Arnold Norris was also quite high (I think fourth or fifth). In my mind the pick was between Arnold Norris and Keiran Filby (picked in the next slot by Mumbai). I liked Norris' power and defensive ratings better but Fildy did have the better contact potential....

The BANC standings now have Bucharest at the top of the heap at 21 – 14 while Beirut is a game and a half back in second place ...

Re: UMEBA Draft 2041 chatter

I like the Mackey pick. That is who I had my eye on. With him being gone, there were 4 that I felt were in my short list. I decided to have the auto pick decide between the 4 and it went with Arnold Norris. Expect an article later this week on the background story to the auto pick. :)
