2083 Season:

The SAN DIEGO PADRES won their second consecutive World Series. They erased a 3 games to 0 deficit to defeat the 113-win Indianapolis Indians.

The DANVILLE BRAVES were relegated to the Pit of Despair. They finished 54-107, 7 games behind the Hartford Yard Goats for last place.

124 teams remain in Major League Baseball...

In Memoriam: Danville Braves



Rookie- Atlanta Braves

Rookie Teams Remaining: 10

Braves Affiliates Remaining: 4/5

All Time Record: 4793-5862 (.450)

Best Season: 2034, 102-60, 9th place

Best Hitter: Juan Liranzo (2025-2038)

A top prospect out of the Dominican Republic, Liranzo debuted at 18 in 2025, but he didn't become a regular for three years. His first full season was a struggle, as he slashed .210/.262/.297 to finish with exactly 0 WAR. He slowly improved, however, and by 2033 he was a superstar. That season, he hit 51 home runs and was 2nd in the majors with 150 RBI. The following year, he won his second straight Silver Slugger and posted a career best 8.1 WAR. In 2039, the shortstop signed with Atlanta and won back-to-back World Series, later winning a third with the Red Sox. Liranzo finished his career with 580 home runs and 101.5 WAR. He was a first ballot Hall of Famer in 2054, and he is the only inductee to enter wearing a Danville cap.

Best Pitcher: Shamar Maytubby (2036-2046)

The Massachusetts native and 80-grade name was a 4th round pick in 2033. Though he was never a star, he was a steady pitcher for a number of years. In 2039, he was 5th in the majors with 23 quality starts. His best season came in 2042, when he had a 3.35 ERA and was worth 4.4 WAR. After leaving Danville as a free agent in 2047, he played with 6 teams over the next 5 years. Despite a very successful stint as a reliever with the Giants in 2051, Maytubby was released that July and never pitched again.

Notes:

Houston 1B Nate Draper led the league with a .362 batting average.

Gwinnett SS Luis Murillo led the league with 63 homers and a .689 slugging percentage.

Bowling Green LF Jimmy Sharpe led the league with a .436 OBP and 8.7 WAR.

Round Rock SP Juan Ortega won his second straight Cy Young after posting a 1.75 ERA, 0.81 WHIP, 299 strikeouts, and an otherworldly 1.33 FIP. His 1.33 FIP was less than half that of the second best pitcher, Trejyn Walker.

White Sox SP Jon Coronado led the league with 312 strikeouts. After winning Cy Young back to back years, Coronado has now finished in second place 3 years in a row.

Indianapolis closer Luis Hurtado saved 55 games.

Twins SS Mike Musial recorded 200 hits for the 10th season in a row. The 31-year-old now has 2206 hits, and he could be a candidate to be one of the all time leaders in that category.

RF Jorge Quintana remained a free agent and retired after the season with 756 home runs.

The Pittsburgh Pirates were the worst MLB team, going 64-97 and finishing in 118th place.
