>#7 Kings of the Wildcard


Cincinnati Highlanders

The Highlanders have established themselves as one of the best run franchises in the league, but they’re still known as the ‘Wildcard Highlanders’. The Highlanders have had only one losing season and five second places in the standings. Although their only division crown was in season one, that hasn’t stopped them from making the playoffs year in and year out. Consistently, the Highlanders have had 90-win seasons, but they’re also the only team in the top ten without a 100 win season.

The total percentage of wins for the Highlanders is .548 (621 victories and 513 losses). The most wins in a single season were 97 during season two. The most losses in a season were 88 during season four.

Yanksrule11 is entering his eighth season as the general manger of the franchise compiling a 621-513 record for a .548 winning percentage. Yanksrule11 has done a great job with this franchise which is demonstrated by winning seasons and playoff appearances year after year, despite having one of the lowest payrolls in the league. Yanksrule is also fifth in the league with 21 playoff victories against only 19 losses.
