>#3 Running of the Bulls

>

Durham Bulls

During the first five years of the Bulls was one of the best teams in the league. They won four straight American League South division titles and a wild card berth during season 5. They also had even had back to back trips to the World Series where they happen to fall short of winning it all. Now the team really seems to be in rebuilding mode and desperately needing help in the rotation. Can the Bulls find enough help in the rotation to begin to recapture there past glory?

The total percentage of wins for the Bulls is .570 (646 victories and 488 losses). The most wins in a single season were 101 during seasons one and two. The most losses in a season were 92 during season six.

Hacker7 is entering his third season as the general manger of the franchise compiling a 148-176 record for a .457 winning percentage. Hacker7 took over a team that never had a losing record but it look like the team was beginning to hit the wall anyway. I think the big mistake for Hacker7 was trying to get some good pitching on a team that was never known for there pitching and was all about the offense. I believe if he would have stuck with this strategy possible the team would have a couple more winning seasons under there belt.

Future Outlook: Rebuilding
