>USMLB DAILY

>Welcome to the first edition of the USMLB Daily. A lot of news and information will be in here and fun things will be added through out it. I hope that you enjoy and that the report will be up Monday through Friday till the end of the season. Draft information will also be added to the Daily report after the draft. Trades that happen from this day forward will also be added to the report. If there’s anything you would like me to cover or add (real or not) just let me know and I’ll do my best to add it.

Interview with the defending World Series Champions the Monterrey Stars.
The team hasn’t gotten out the best start that they where looking for but first place is still a good place to be this early in the season that’s for sure. So I ask the owner 5 questions and here is his response.

So what are you goals for the season: “I’d have to say my goals going into the season were to begin to lock up some of my better players to long term deals to upgrade the back end of my rotation, improve my bullpen and land a true ACE.”
Well I believe the only thing that is missing this early in the season is finding that true ACE but every other goal has been accomplished in my opinion.

Who from you team is going to surprise people this season: “I’d have to say, with this being Mike Bond’s first full season his final numbers will be a bit of a surprise to people.”
I would say once again he’s right with finding some good talent that is young and ready for the major. Good job.

What team scares you the most to face: “It’s a tough question because I see plenty of teams that I know can beat me (New Britain, Fargo, St Louis, Tacoma and my whole division) but Jackson has the pitching staff from top to bottom and a ball park that just doesn’t suit my team well.”
He may want to add the Indianapolis Clowns to that mix as well with the way there playing.

Are you looking to add anymore players to improve you team during the season: “I’m always looking to acquire players that can make my organization stronger. I’ll keep my eye out for minor league players that suit my team but the Big-League team is my focus. I’d like to land that ACE I’m missing.”
I think by the end of the year he may add that ACE he’s missing.

Who do you think will make it to the World Series out of the American League: “I’d like to think my team can compete with anyone and the BeefPound gave me all I could handle. Without Junior Lui’s error in the ninth inning of game 6, I’m paying cash for this season and not credits.”
I really wouldn’t mind seeing a rematch in the World Series between the Beefpound and the Stars once again.

Anything else you would like to add: “I would like to add, both Knucklebones and szekrenyi have done great jobs to get their teams back in contention so quickly. Thank you.”
I will have to agree with him with those two owners turning those teams around so fast.

Poll Question:
Well the poll question was what is the hardest division to play in and you guys agree that the American League West and the National League South is the hardest divison to play in.

Useless Information:
Jeffrey Neal is leading the league with 8 inherited runs scored so far this season with leaving 9 stranded for a percentage of 47% which is above the league average of just 32% of inherited runners scoring so far this season with the Durham Bulls the worst with allowing 56% of inherited runners scoring and the New Britain Fisher Cats the best with 0% of inherited runners scoring so far this season.

Incase any one was wondering I have found the 5 highest paid players in the league (without signing bonus) and here they are.

1. Freddie Adcock (2B) (Madison Lasers) 15m this year or 15% of the teams payroll
2. Peter Baek (P) (Tacoma Pioneers) 11m this year or 24% of the team’s payroll
3. Gus Wilkins (SS) (Ottawa Crawdaddies) 10.5m this year or 12% of the team’s payroll
3. Fergie O’Shea (C) (Fargo Woodchippers) 10.5m this year or 15% of the team’s payroll
5. Earl Williams (RF) (St. Louis Cornerstone) 10m this year or 19% of the team’s payroll

I hope that it’s worth it to the Pioneers to pay a single player nearly one-fourth of the payroll this season.

The next edition will have an interview with the Anaheim Beefpound and the poll question will be up to pick the next one. A tour of a ballpark will also debut next week and more useless information will be there. Remember if there’s something that you would like me to cover please let me know and I will work on it. Thank you.
