3-4-5 are up!

Patriots were down 3 games to 0 and behind 3-2 in Game 4.  In the ninth inning, we rallied for 2 runs to stay alive.  It was all started by pinch hitting Mark Stokes who didn't start due to back spasms, and subsequently re-injured his back on the basepaths.

This will either be a nice story or something to be forgotten depending on whether or not the Patriots can win both of the games in Boston to complete the reverse-sweep.

Florida lost 9 straight, 7 to end the season, and then the first 2 in the wild card series. Then we won 6 straight, and now have lost 2 in a row. It's been a hell of a roller coaster for the Bluefish. Good luck tomorrow, lord only knows which Florida team will show up...

We threatened nearly every inning, but just couldn't push runs across.  Good series and good luck LT.

Thanks. My offense woke up - I have pitching that can rival anyone's, but the batters often leave Martin Hernandez to do all the damage. If I can keep getting contributions from others I have a shot.

What a time for a 7 game losing streak. This should be a quick playoff exit...

I was right in the mix until a 12-game losing streak in early September.   :'(

If anyone needed a clinic on how to blow a 5 game lead with 8 games to go...this is an all time collapse.

Agreed.

Enriquez is at R ball.

Please make Ray Elliott the starting LF and batting 5th versus RH and 6th versus LH.

thanks.

A 79-83 record in 2068 provided Florida with the 11th overall pick in what looks like a disastrous draft class for most. In 10 years since this draft only 3 players have produced 20 WAR or better. Florida accumulated one of the worst draft classes I can recall in this draft.

1) SP - Aldemar Bica 2) RP - Connor Gilbert 3) SP Walter Gross 4) C Fernando Mendoza 5) SP Dale Clark 6) LF Tom Richardson 8) RP Richard Cabrera 9) 2B Carlos Guaracho 10) C Ben Davis

First rounder Aldemar Bica has had one good season since he made his debut in 2074, posting a 12-11 record in 2076 and 2.5 WAR. He is a decent relief pitcher and perhaps a 5th starter.

Gilbert never made is above AA and was released in 2078. Walter Gross may get a shot in the bullpen in 2079. He has bounced between AA and AAA the past few seasons. Dale Clark has great stuff but poor movement and poor control and has been smacked around the yard in limited NPBL duty. There is nothing to say about the rest.

Overall Grade D-. Bica may still prove to be a useful starter, as long time starter Eric Reece winds down his long career. But at 27, with only 21 career wins, it is not likely we will look back and say we jumped the gun on this evaluation. If not for him, this grade is an F. If Gross or Clark manage to provide some help in the BP maybe we will revisit and say this draft was a C-/D+.

Coming off a playoff appearance in 2067, the 2068 draft had Florida picking 16th. A ten pick draft featured a 1st round bust, a solid 3rd round choice and 3 excellent late round picks. Overall an interesting draft for Florida.

1) 1B Jason Jackson 2) RF Gerard Washington 3a) SP Ed O'Neal 3b)CF Felipe Ramirez 4) 1B Richard Shannon 5)CF Doug Valdez 7) 2B Stefan Buurmann 8) RP - Tim Sweetapple 9) SS Ronald Snyder 10) Robinson Lopez

First Round pick 1B Jason Jackson debuted in 2070. The young 1B showed some promise in half a season. He built on that promise as a 21 year old but an injury cut his season short (109 games). In 2072 he struggled and then suffered another injury. He was returned to AAA in 2073 and then dealt to Hawaii, where in 2074 he had his only complete season of his career.  He has bounced between pitching and positional play since then. Funny enough he was dealt for a 3B who was trying to fill the void left by the Bill Coleman trade. Juan Rivera has not been the answer.

Second rounder Gerard Washington was all hit no field and no HR power. After hitting .315 in AA, 20 year old Washington came up to Florida and continued to hit singles and doubles. As a 21 year old, he hit .332 with 38 doubles, but horrendous fielding limited his WAR at 1.1. He hit over .300 in 2073 and his peak season in 2074 .317/15/74, but defensive problems in the outfield put Florida's management in a tough spot. Washington was a clear DH in a league without that option.  After posting a -0.8 WAR in 2075 Washington was sent back to the minors where he plays today.

Third round pick SP O'Neal was traded away for another young pitcher Salvador Olivas, who has had a forgettable career. O'Neal has been a solid reliever.

The second third rounder Felipe Ramirez has speed and excellent defensive capabilities. Injuries have kept him down. He debuted at 20 but made his first impact at 22 in 2074 posting a 3.7 WAR in a platoon role. 2.9 WAR and 2.4 WAR seasons followed, but injuries made him unreliable as an everyday player. He is currently the first CF call up from AAA should injuries arise.

Shannon, Valdez, and Buurmann have had 0 impact in NPBL.

Eighth Rounder Tim Sweetapple has been a solid left handed relief pitcher  since 2074, making 175 appearances, including a career high 60 in 2078.

Ninth Rounder Ronald Snyder burst out of nowhere with a 7.1 WAR season as a 22 year old rookie. Blessed with tremendous defensive skill at SS and a tremendous eye at the plate Snyder started well in 2073, but was traded as Florida made a decision to replenish their farm system. With Maryland he has been good, but never built on those first 2 seasons. He has won 4 gold gloves and continues to be a defensive star.

Tenth Round pick Robinson Lopez has been a late bloomer at Catcher.  A tremendous leader and defensive catcher, Lopez came out of nowhere in 2077, at age 26 to be the backup to Frank Bray. He looked like he would take over starting duties when a sever hip injury sidelined him and his future is in doubt.

Overall Grade C+. Jackson was rushed to the bigs and never reached his immense potential. Washington never learned to be even a bad defender and his lack of skills on the field superseded his excellent offensive abilities. When you hit on picks 8, 9, 10 and get productive players you have to be happy, but one wonders what could have been.

Following a second 75-87 (pythag of -7) Florida picked 8th again. This draft was solid overall with a 3 time all star 3B, a solid LF and some relief pitching help.

1) 3B Bill Coleman 2) LF - Walt Sloan 3) RP - Lee Griffith 4) C - Ricardo Ortega 5) C Jason Stocks 6) 3B Colton Sim 7) CL Nelson Chavez 8) RP Brian Walker 9) RP Ed Wilson

First rounder 3B Bill Coleman has had a solid career. Over 50 WAR at age 32, was probably traded prematurely by Florida. Coleman wasted no time joining the Florida club in 2067. He saw some success in his 5 years in the south eastern US. He made the all star team as a 22 year old in 2068. His career stagnated until he was dealt in 2073. He has since made 2 more all star teams and has had a nice career. Recently dealt to Maryland. Interestingly Florida never properly replaced him and the search for a great 3B continues today (2078).

Second round pick LF Walt Sloan has quietly had a nice career.  A one time allstar, Sloan has over 1000 hits and almost 200 steals in his career.  He has accumulated 12.8 WAR but has been relegated to a backup role in 2078 (and likely beyond).

Third Rounder RP Lee Griffith made 217 big league appearances. Injuries have derailed his career and he had not made a NPBL appearance since 2075 and retired after last season (2077).

Other picks 4th rounder C Ricardo Ortega has made almost 200 appearances, mostly as a backup catcher/defensive replacement. Sixth rounder 3B Colton Sim was part of the 3B 'solution' for 2 brief, ineffective seasons. Ninth round pick RP Ed Wilson surprised everyone and made 113 relief appearances. He is back in AAA.

Overall Grade B-. Coleman has had a very good career playing both 3B and SS. Sloan has provided over 1000 games in LF. The surprise was 9th rounder Wilson who got into 3-4 seasons as a solid middle reliever. Catcher Ortega was a solid backup C.
