The Fictional Major League Baseball

Introducing the Fictional Major League Baseball.

The league concept:

The current 30 Major League Baseball plus the Montreal Expos, Brooklyn Dodgers, Milwaukee Braves, Philadelphia Athletics, St. Louis Browns and Washington Senators.

The Milwaukee Brewers move back to the American League, the Houston Astros back to the National League, creating several NL/AL-rivalries within the city, state or country.

The division winners plus two Wild-Card teams will go to the play-offs - Wild-Card Series (best-of-three), Division Series (best-of-seven), League Championship Series (best-of-seven) and the World Series (best-of-seven).

The early rivalry is between the Milwaukee Brewers and Detroit Tigers.

In a mad dash for the 1950 pennant, both the Brewers and Tigers just fell short, both having to settle for a Wild-Card spot ... the Tigers eventually swept the best-of-three Wild-Card Series.

The Tigers went on to sweep Cleveland in the Division Series and roll over the Mariners before falling to the Brooklyn Dodgers in 4 games in the World Series.

Following the season with a lot of budget space to work with the Brewers made several big moves, signing both league MVP's as Free Agents plus trading for AL Pitcher of the Year, Chris Eckelberry.

The Brewers dominated the league, finishing with 116 wins ... the team stumbled into September, losing 6 games in a row, but finished the regular season by winning their final six games, then sweeping the Tigers and Mariners. Wins in the first two games of the World Series ran the winning streak to a whopping 16 games and the team eventually won the World Series in six games.

After the season we again had to make decisions. 4 players entered the final year of arbitration and the front office decided to make some moves.

The decision was made to sign Chris Eckelberry and Jim di Giovanni to long-term deals while trading shortstop Caldwell and star outfielder Jason Porter and to hand the shortstop job to minor league phenom Brian Bischoff.

The trade brought some much needed budget space and starting pitcher Chris Wilson to Milwaukee, giving the team a fearsome pitching rotation.

The offense struggled over long stretches and was shut out 10 times and scoring one run in 20 other games (finishing with a 6-5 record in 1:0-games) - one year after scoring 927 runs and finishing with a run differential of 385.

On the other hand, the pitching staff pitched a ridiculous 29 shutouts and allowed a single run in 34 other games.

The Tigers quickly took advantage from the Brewers struggles (we were just 24-21 on May 31) and at one point led the division by 11 games.

From then on we tried to catch them, but the closest we came was on September 14 after the Brewers had just completed a three-game sweep at Milwaukee to move within half a game.

Back-to-back 2:1 losses at Cleveland dropped us back again, and entering the final regular-season series, a 4-game set at Detroit), we trailed the Tigers by 3 games before sweeping the final 4 games.

Since the Tigers have swept the previous two Wild-Card-Series we fully expect to meet them in the Divisional Series :crying:

A good age to retire - and he definitely didn't kill his arm by pitching too many innings :rolleyes:

But I don't think there are many guys in the club-house that could be his sons :lol:

Any progress on this? Just wondering, that's all. CD out.
