Diamonds and Pearls 2041.5 - The Newest Pearls, the 2041 Draft Class

The 2041 Draft Class has been finalized, and the newest Pearls are here! Round 1, Pick 4: 1B Ivan Thomas - 16 year old high schooler out of Honiara who slashed .359/.446/.748 with 20 HR and 49 RBI. The Pearls see this guy as a solid young bat that, with a little work at first base, can be a star. R...

Re: Diamonds and Pearls 2041.4 - Treading Water in April

Fine collection of pitches for Trojka. I’m very wary of calling up players too early, in a league where a lot of the pitchers are early thirties or more, I always feel that young pitchers need a lot of experience before making the big step up. Who knows if that is right or not, but I shall be watch...

Diamonds and Pearls 2041.4 - Treading Water in April

The Manama Pearls fought to a 13-14 record in April. Along the way GM, Dillon Lowery, pulled the trigger on a blockbuster trade that sent away reigning BURT Pitcher of the Year Ruben Nunez for a trio of prospects, with one making their immediate debut in the UMEBA. Pearls' fans are stuck in limbo t...

Diamonds and Pearls 2041.3 - Pearls Part Ways with Pitcher

It was no surprise that the Manama Pearls' biggest issue was the starting rotation. It was also no surprise that GM, Dillon Lowery, chose to do something about it. What was surprising is that the first step in fixing this issue was getting rid of ace, reigning BURT Pitcher of the Year, Ruben Nunez ...

Re: UMEBA Specific Sim #2 Chatter

We're scrambling to find something that works in the rotation now. I like the way our guys are swinging the bats, but we need to find a way to throw some balls that don't get mashed.

Re: 41.04 - Istanbul inks some starting pitching

It'll be really fun to see how that pitcher from the AAA in the BBL does over here in his first season. I think you got a great deal.
