Game of the week
 

 vs

 

Last year the Braves swept the Bulldogs the first meeting. Well the Bulldogs haven't forgot about those games and are awaiting with open arms for Bill Masons team.

 

The Bulldogs offense are averaging 10 runs per game. Combine that with their big 3 on the mound of Caron, Powell and Jeff Rugg (go number 12)this team is off to a fast start. Which could spell trouble for any team the play.

 

The braves come into this series 2-2 and took 2 on the chin, compliments of the Mudskippers. However I believe this team is dangerous with Ant Kelly leading the charge for them. My one question is will Masons mercenaries show up this week as they have in weeks past for big games? Well find out at 10am Sunday.

 

Prediction: Bulldogs aren't letting up off the gas, and the braves don't have the firepower on the mound to keep pace, unless their mercenaries show up. Bulldog sweep, but it'll be close

 
 
2016 Team Preview
 



Mudskippers

The Two Time defending champs are back and looking to win 3 in a row. Manager Kris Sharp is excited as he can lean on his core group of guys as they all return and then some. Dillon Tagle will anchor this line up, the big catcher hits for average and power. Jordan Premick, Sean O'Hara and Mike "Back Tits" Iller makes this team very dangerous as they can play multiple positions which makes them very flexible in all aspects. Prediction: Forget the regular season, this team comes to play in the playoffs. They will finish in the top 2 this season.

 


Dirt Dawgs

If falling short twice in the championship doesn't piss you off, I don't know what will. This tough bunch of men will come out firing as expected this season. With POY Matt Raws leading the charge on the mound for them. The Dawgs are a scrappy group. Mike Leone and Dennis Higgins are as tough as they come when it's time to play. The only concern is that they lack power in the middle of the lineup. If well known Dan Gavlick shows, then put this team in the mix for the title.
Prediction: No one looks forward to playing this team. They are and will be a handful. Look for them to be in the top 3.

 


Bulldogs

The Bucks County Bulldogs are as legit as they come. They will pose a serious threat to every team with Mike Caron leading the charge on the mound. However the bulldogs made some additions to their lineup, adding ex Camden Rivershark Greg Miller and Mike Villari who will be instant impact players. Lets not forget about 2015 league batting champ Ray Schmoltze and league MVP Mayhem Dove who can manufacture runs single handily.
Prediction: They can make a run and win it all if Caron, Dove, Schmoltze and the offense duplicates last year.


 


Braves

Billy Mason self proclaimed " the legend, masbrenner, Billy baseball, MVP and Billy pop ups" has a scary team. With Adrian Gonzalez, Ant Kelly, Rick Stronski and Bill Parave on this roster. They will keep them in games. However with the loss of Ryan Loughran to their rival Dirt Dawgs, can they pitch? Another question, will they show up every week? 
Prediction: The league can see them being in the 2,3 or 4 spot all year. Time will tell!

 


Orioles

This team in the past few seasons has surprised some teams with some upsets. They'll give you a game. Veteran Dan Madonna has these boys on the right path and they will get better. They just got to stay the course. Rome wasn't built in a day. I'm excited for these guys to upset one of the big boys, as they do it every year.
Prediction: Look for them to push the pack, but eventually finishing outside the top 4.

 


Tigers

The second year of the new look Tigers are back at it. With some losses to their team , the league senses a strong feeling this will be a year with some growing pains for manager Jarred Barnes. Don't count anyone out of the race though. The game is played between 2 white lines and anything can happen. Prediction: Someone has to finish in last place? I hope the Tigers prove the league wrong. Surprise us, please!
