Re: UMEBA Team Previews for 2042 Media Guide

I'd be willing to do one or two teams. But I won't be free to write them until this weekend. Is that okay?

And do you have any concerns heading into spring training regarding anything on your team - positional issue, player/social issue, front office issue? Lastly, could you tell us any...

Re: Who do you follow?

I'm a Nationals fan with a soft spot for the Rays due to living down in FL for 6 years. Were you an Expos fan before? I was raised in Montana so I had no local allegiance; I just loved the game and players. My three favorites were Ken Griffey Jr., Omar Vizquel, and Pedro Martinez. After seeing Pedr...

Still can’t figure out how Trojka got in the draft pool, but damn he’s good.
Not complaining about that over here :D -- 21 years old and about to be the face of the franchise for as long as we can hold onto him!

Diamonds and Pearls 2041.9 - It's Alive! The Playoff Streak is Alive!

For the fifth straight year, the Manama Pearls have made the UMEBA postseason. This also continues the streak of never missing the postseason dating back to the inception of the Pearls. (Note: The Pearls also won the championship in their inaugural year of 2037) Finishing with a less-than-stellar 7...

Diamonds and Pearls 2041.8 - The July Jumble

On July 2nd , the Manama Pearls dismissed their entire coaching staff and brought in a new wave of younger minds to help GM Dillon Lowery run the major league ball-club. Following the new regime's entrance, the Pearls organization saw a mix-up of not only the lineup, mindset, and bullpen management...

Diamonds and Pearls 2041.7 - Breaks and Changes

Over the last 10 games , the Manama Pearls are 1-9. GM Dillon Lowery, visually unpleased, tersely spoke at the podium during the all-star break media check-in, saying, "I'm unhappy. The guys are unhappy. The fans are unhappy. But we are working on it and making changes." He stepped off the stage be...

The 11 - 0 beating was against Mumbai, not Beirut. :)

Although Beirut still got spanked by the Pearls who swept the Cedars 4-0, 5-2 and 4-3.
woops! OP is fixed. Sorry about that :(

The month of May was kind [/size] to the Manama Pearls . Going 15-12 over the course of the month does not seem like much on paper, but the Pearls have passed the eye test with flying colors--especially this last week, which ended with an 11-0 victory over Mumbai The Pearls of May : 1.

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

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...
