>Philadelphia Dead Milkmen: The Outlook

>Expectations are high in Philadelphia after a record-setting season that saw the Dead Milkmen pacing the league and setting a team record with 101 wins and taking possession of the AL pennant, ultimately falling short 1-4 to Sacramento in a heartbreaking World Series. Fans expect at least an equally successful campaign in S8; winning the series is the goal this year.

The AL North has been competitive nearly every season in the NABCL, so there will be no easy path back to the World Series. Pitching will be important for Philadelphia; the departure of Gordon Justice means that the Milkmen will have to get by without that strong 1-2 punch at the top of the rotation. Prospects will likely have to step up if Philadelphia is going to succeed.

There will be several career highlights for Philadelphia fans this season. Rafael Vidal is only two wins away from his 100th victory in Philadelphia. Shooter Farrell can set several milestones: 800 runs (61 to go), 1,000 RBI (59), and 400 HR (3 to go). Derrek Jensen 11 saves away from his 70th, and Jim Jenkins is just short of 200 doubles (11 to go).
