  • Running Away With It
    The New Milford Blazers began the second half clinging to a four game lead over the Salem Cowtippers. Twenty-four games later, their lead stands at fourteen games. Their 21-3 performance in Chapter Four tops even the Los Altos Undertakers (20-4), who won twenty or more games in a chapter for the fourth chapter in a row. Both teams are now on pace to win more than 120 games this season. In the EL, Kansas (16-8) and Chicago (14-10) each picked up ground in their division races, and now trail by one and six games, respectively.
  • Halfway There
    There was little movement in the standings in Chapter Three, but some big trades could change that. The Great Lakes Sphinx greatly upgraded their starting rotation, adding Carlos Carrasco and Jeff Samardzija. But the biggest impact was the acquisition of Cy Young-caliber ace Jose Fernandez by the St. Louis Apostles. The Los Altos Undertakers led the way with 19 wins in Chapter Three, followed by Salem (17), New Milford (16), and St. Louis (16).
  • Two in the Books
    Chapter Two featured four 20-win teams: St. Louis (23), New Milford (20), Los Altos (20), and Great Lakes (20). The Apostles and Sphinx captured first place, and the Charlotte Mustangs managed to hang on to their lead despite a 14-14 chapter. The firesale in Bear Country began, while the firesales in Chicago and Niagara have been put on pause.
  • One Done
    Chapter One of the 2017 season officially ended on Wednesday. The New Milford Blazers (22-6), Salem Cowtippers (20-8), and Los Altos Undertakers (20-8) led the way in the first chapter, and the Granite State Lightning (8-20) and Western Kansas Buffaloes (8-20) took up the rear. The biggest surprises of the chapter were the first-place standings of the Niagara Locks and Charlotte Mustangs, both of whom went 17-11.
