The Twins Claim the 2022 World Series Championship!

The AL finally wins a Championship in the GAF Online Baseball League. It’s party time in Minnesota. The confetti is flying and residents are smiling.

The Minnesota Twins have reached the mountaintop, capturing the 2022 World Series today. They defeated the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 at Miller Park to officially wrap up the series 4-1.

Asked how it feels to be champion, first baseman Justin Bellinger was to the point.

“It feels great, like a million bucks. I’m so happy right now, not just for me but for all the guys,” he said. “We put a lot of work into this and deserve to be champions.”

The team is planning a victory parade and fan appreciation day later in the week. Minnesota finished the regular season 96-66 and claimed first place in the American League Central Division.

A Mid Season Introduction: 2022 Cleveland Indians

A revamped roster, an overhauled major league staff. Underpaid and unknown, this, is the 2022 Cleveland Indians.

Manager Brian Buchanan, promoted from a 6 year manager position with the AA Akron Rubberducks (3 Eastern League Championships), took over the big league managerial spot for the Indians this year. He was provided the opportunity to turn over the staff and made a change at every coaching position. GM Brent Tech allowed these changes because he felt the coaching style would be more in line with the teams available budget. This Indians team is looking to play smallball with aggressive base running, have solid pitching, and play extremely hard on defense.

To go along with the new manager’s philosophy changes, the Indians raised up or brought in a player at almost every fielding position. The outfield features only 1 player with prolonged experience in the bigs.

The Indians started the season slow under this transition, but have begun to show improvement as of late behind good pitching (2nd – SP ERA) and a slowly improving defense (4th – Def. EFF).

The pitching staff has been lead by 23 year old Julian McDonald (who made the AL All-Star team this year). Drafted in 2016 by the Cardinals, he was later released and signed to a minor league deal by the Indians. The oldest SP in the rotation is just 28 and includes 2015 draftees Erik Cha and Kyle Cody (via trade).

Though they suffered a recent string of injuries, the Indians have managed to keep pace and stay in the race for the division or wild card spot. With such a young team, that’s all this GM could hope for.

The 2021 World Series is Secured by the Pirates

Sometimes the winner is the one who got the lucky bounces and the lucky calls.

It was the latter case in 2021, as the Pittsburgh Pirates topped the Oakland Athletics 7-3 tonight at PNC Park to win the World Series. It was the 7th title in franchise history.

“When you play for championships, you have to play better than the team in the other dugout. We did that in this series, and all year. Now we’re the best team in baseball,” said Pittsburgh first baseman Steven De La Mota, who was named the series MVP.

The pirates took the series 4-3. The new titleholders completed the regular season with a first-place finish in the NL Central division and a 91-71 record.

Pittsburgh manager grinned and nodded when asked to comment on De La Mota’s words.

Los Angeles Dodgers Win ‘Fall Classic’ and Get Invited to the White House

Besides winning the big game and all of the accolades that go along with it, the President of the United States has already let the team know that he would like them to visit later this year. When speaking of the call he received from the POTUS, Dodgers Manager, Don Mattingly, seemed a bit flustered. “He told us that he wants to meet the boys that won the Series and asked if we would come to the White House. I told him, “Hell Yes…er-Yes Sir, Mr President”. While the date has not yet been decided, we will be reporting upon the exciting event.

Sometimes you get the lucky bounces, sometimes you get the lucky breaks and calls, and sometimes you just play better than the other team.
That was the case in 2020, as the Los Angeles Dodgers topped the Baltimore Orioles 5-3 tonight at Dodger Stadium to win the World Series. It was the 8th title in franchise history.

“When you play for championships, you have to play better than the team in the other dugout. We did that in this series, and all year. Now we’re the best team in baseball,” said Corey Seager.
The club’s manager just grinned and nodded when asked to comment on Seager’s words.
“He said it best – play better than the other team.”

The city of Los Angeles seems to have no problem with being home to a championship team. A grand celebration is expected to kick off for the winners in the days to come.
