Diamonds and Pearls 2041.8 - The July Jumble

Post by tallywood » Mon Feb 10, 2020 11:59 am

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, but the Pearls' farm system saw a shakeup of where prospects will be living for the foreseeable future. It has been an interesting, yet productive month of new blood.

SP Johan Trojka celebrated his UMEBA debut this month and has solidified himself as the #4 starter. Despite not tallying a win as a Pearl pitcher yet, he has accumulated a 3.82 ERA, 22 Ks to 8 BBs, and a 1.1 WAR already.

The Manama Pearls managed a 14-12 record in the month of July and now find themselves in a division tie with the Baghdad Kings. Both the Pearls and Kings sit at 49-57 in the early days of August and now fight for the lone BURT Wild Card berth for the postseason.

The Pearls have yet to miss the playoffs in their four years of existence.

The Pearls of the Month
  • 1B Scott Hoover - Absolutely raked at the plate this month, hitting .362 with 7 HR and 14 RBI. He toted a .637 SLG and a 1.026 OPS.
  • SP Angel Guerrero - Dominant on the mound with a July that consisted of a 3-0 record, a 1.98 ERA, and a 1.02 WHIP

All very tight for the UMEBA, bottom four teams covered by two games lol. While that might make it harder for Mumbai, the bottom three in the BURT are within two of each other.

All to play for . . .
