Re: AltLB - 2024 Season

The Atoms are feeling even better. We put up the most points in the league, we extended our winning streak to 04, we moved to #01 in the overall standings, and most importantly, we beat the Bison for the first time in the modern era. We'll take that success on the road to Chicago, where the Pros have been struggling for most of the year, but every win is important to stay ahead of the plethora of contenders in the NL. Luckily, we have guys like 3B José Miranda, who is hotter than the Las Vegas sun right now, as his week included a record-setting 12 consecutive at bats with a hit. He also scored 07 times and drove in 06. #03dTimesTheCharm #UpAndAtom

Re: AltLB - 2024 Season

I haven't seen standings on here this season.  I think this is an interesting league and I like to follow.  I may consider joining at some point.

Re: AltLB - 2024 Season

The Thunderbirds did not miss a week, the owner (me) was on vacation during that week and was unable to post. For posterity's sake, here is week 14:

We easily manhandled the Condors to get our revenge for their win earlier in the year and to bring us closer to the top of the AL. While the AL-leading Bison take on the NL-leading Atoms, we stay at home to face the Minnesota Gemini, who are trying to pick up some steam to stay in the AL playoff race. Featured for this week is 3B Austin Riley, who has started to pick up his pace to the tune of 2 HR's, 4 walks, and 4 runs to help our offense.

It looked like the Thunderbirds would have taken their first loss in weeks, but our offense just kept hitting the gas to narrowly beat the Gemini and extended our winning streak to 6 games and reached double-digit wins. And on top of that, the Bison were defeated by the Atoms, meaning the gap between us and them is now just a game away. We can't take our foot off the gas just yet, as we have another tough test as we hit the road to face the Deacons in Dertoit. Leading the way offensively last week was C Will Smith (not to be confused with RP Will Smith, who is no longer with the Thunderbirds), who hit 4 HR's (including 3 in a game), 5 RBI's, 8 runs, and a double as the keystone of our hitting unit last week. #Thunderstruck

Re: AltLB - 2024 Season

Following a disappointing loss on the road to the Atoms (why is it we only lose when our opponent is the highest scoring team in the league?), we head off to Raleigh, North Carolina to take on the Griffins. The Griffins have been struggling to this point this season, but we're not going to take it easy on them. We're getting star hitter Kyle Schwarber back from his injury, and we're featuring longtime Bison catcher, Willson Contreras this week, who paced the team last week with 8 total hits from 3 singles, 2 doubles, and 3 home runs. He had 4 runs himself while driving in 8. He also tacked on 5 walks, a stolen base, and got hit by a pitch as well! #WeAreOK

Re: AltLB - 2024 Season

Holy cow you guys, we made it to the All-Star Break in beautiful San Diego, California! Here's who made the team! You have starters, you have backups, and all that!

15 of the 16 teams have at least one All-Star, and all 15 teams that have an All-Star have a starter!
