Balitmore, Colorado, Durham and Helena Season 9 update

Baltimore Lords: Last season 74-84

Adding Spike Logan, Bert Blair and Jocko Sexson the Lords seem to be very powerful. Devonjain is a great owner that appears to trying to get this team primed to get their third playoff appearance in franchise history. They promoted Catcher Brent Crosby this season which will bring some huge power and  decent defensive ability. They lost Barry Broadhurst to Free Agency he signed with Scottsdale from what we've been told he wanted to go where he could win.  I predict Baltimore wins 90 games this season and gives Jacksonville a run for the division.

Colorado Grizzlies: Last season 69-93

 Going into the ninth season we have the Colorado Grizzlies coming in after the best record they've had in three seasons. Ice-Rat has turned the club around and this season it's no different. Colorado signed SP Nipsey Gipson a former Columbus Jet that's looking to be a very good signing thus far the only issue is he's going to be playing in Colorado... Things tend to change with pitchers in that ballpark... They also signed Valerio Delgado. Delgado opted to go Free Agent rather than re-sign with Kansas City.  That was a huge benefit to Colorado that recently let Neil Campbell walk. Delgado averaged 24HR a season  in his last 5 seasons so that can be a good thing coming to  Colorado. Good luck rat.... you may need it.

Durham Bulls: Last season 83-79

Durham is in rebuild mode... This team has managed to get rid of some huge contracts and prepares for the next couple seasons. No major signings and no real big losses unless you count Nicholas McGee leaving via Free Agency. Sergei is a great owner that I'm sure can turn things around.  Good news though they have SP Pedro Beltran and 2b Damian Wang. So they can probably finish 3rd in front of Huntington.

Helena Fruit Pickers: Last season 81-81

After owner Mele316 takes the franchise to three straight Division Titles.. He leaves the team and the new owner comes in and finishes second behind Salem. Bobkordecki has his work cut out for him. He has done well though so far signing Robert Robinson last season which was injured. This season trades for Johnny Durbin and upgrades at Third Base. He lost veteran power catcher George Forrest but that shouldn't be a factor since he has Broome there. I can see him taking the division this season.
