Last Season MVP's

Last season's AL MVP Kurt Westmoreland was about to leave Salem via free agency but before he could entertain offers from other teams he was given a huge 100 million dollar contract over 5 years with a 10 million dollar signing bonus! At 28 years old he will have plenty of time to knock 40+ home runs per season while driving in 100+ Rbi's.

NL MVP Harold Burrell has 4 more seasons on his current contract, Burrell, the only Doubleday triple crown hitter has a lot of work to do to get his club the championship they have been waiting for. I do know this, if I had Burrell I would certainly not complain.

Key Free Agent Signings so far

Oakland, CA
Free Agency took a turn for the better with the signing of SP Dean Gardner. Gardner signed a 5 year 74 million dollar contract.

Jackson, MS
This team finally got a huge closer for a relatively cheap price. They signed Closer Deivi Cairo to a 2 year 7.9 million dollar contract.

Vancouver, Canada
Vancouver has been lacking offense for quite a while now. They finally landed someone worthy of a big paycheck. They signed 3B Brian Irwin to a 4 year 42 million dollar contract.

City changes!

Doubleday Daily

Rochester, NY

Nyaggie, the  owner of last seasons Rochester team has relocated to Toledo, another move in an attempt to get better fans and an advantage for his team. Toledo was the original home of the franchise when owned by Charlie22098.

San Juan, Puerto Rico

Dublinuf has moved from El Paso to Memphis to San Juan and now to Charleston, this move has to be the move to finally bring home the World Series gold.. Or not.. Is the ballpark really that big of a deal? We'll see if it improves his team this season.

Jacksonville, FL

Once the Boston Beaneaters and now the Trenton Thunder, Bobkordecki has now purchased his third team in Doubleday. He began with Trenton in the NL North which is known now as the Detroit Wolverines then he purchased the Helena Fruit Pickers and now the former Jacksonville squad and moved them to Trenton. Hopefully his magic takes off on this team!

Shamrocks no more!

Doubleday Daily Special Report

Montreal, Canada

The Montreal Shamrocks are no more! Owner Tom Highway has decided not to renegotiate the contract with the city of Montreal and has decided to move south into the borders of the United States. Madison, Wisconsin Mayor Paul Soglin had many discussions over the past 2 months with Tom Highway regarding this move. It was kept out of media for many reasons but it is not official, Tom Highway has moved his team to Madison where they will now be known as the Madison Mallards! Madison is an extremely hitter friendly park that should improve the offensive numbers but will it help them get back to the playoffs? Newly acquired LF Trevor Arnold believes it will! We will soon be able to tell just what lies ahead for the franchise! Good luck Madison, with Seattle and K.C. in your division you will need it.
