THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

Tampa Bay Rays at Boston Red Sox
Apr 21, 2016123456789RHE
Tampa Bay (8-8)100000000150
Boston (9-7)001000001280
W: K. Uehara (2-0) L: D. Carpenter (0-1)


BOSTON, MA - After a rough streak the Red Sox came into the final game of this series looking to sweep the Rays after two big wins, and Tampa Bay made it hard. A matchup between a former Rays great and a future Rays great would prove to be an exciting pitchers duel.

The Rays jumped all over David Price to open the game and a Brandon Guyer triple put him in a tough situation that only got worse when Corey Dickerson grounded out to first and brought Guyer home. Boston looked like they would come back with two on, but Chris Archer used his slider to get Hanley Ramirez swinging and escape trouble.

Price and Archer traded off scoreless innings until the 3rd when Dustin Pedroia drove in Xander Bogaerts from second to tie the game. With the score knotted 1-1 Price and Archer really knuckled down and put on a great show for the Fenway faithful. Archer left the game in the 7th after allowing a single run on seven hits with eight strikouts, and Price would leave the next inning with a single run allowed on five hits with twelve strikeouts.


Archer did his best, but Boston held on to sweep.


The game would continue to be a pitchers duel with no hits until a 9th inning Rusney Castillo triple put Boston in prime position to win, and Jackie Bradley Jr. ended it with a walk-off single to keep them over .500. The Red Sox hit the road next with a rough series at Houston that should be their toughest test of the season.

Decent start for the Sox. Giving up some home runs still, but the ERA is way down and the WHIP? Take a look. Chris Sale went down for a while in the game I pitched 5 innings, but no rotation for me. I have won 4 decisions in a row, too.

September 1, 2016:

Upon joining the ranks of English League 1, we knew there would need to be changes moving forward. The team changed a lot from June 1st to September 1st in 2016 so let's begin. The board was very happy with our surprising promotion last season. So happy that they have given us the goal of gaining automatic promotion into the Championship. This will be a tall order and one that our randoms squad would not be able to accomplish without some help. The board also decided that if automatic promotion wasn't tough enough, they would also only allocate $425,000 in the transfer budget with another $2,100 in weekly wages.

A free transfer in Henrik Ojamaa was set to come in and provide further strength to an attack which already had Romero (22 goals) and Sikorski (21 goals) combine for 43 goals in the last season. Ojamaa can also naturally play LM but I decided to try him up front and switch to a 4-3-3 to start the year.


Ojamaa joins Exeter City on a free transfer.


The first player sold off the squad was the young Australian LM, Chris Naumoff (60 OVR). He had an outstanding season in 2015/2016 scoring 9 goals and notching 8 assists even with several weeks missed due to injury. He was in very high demand with offers coming in from several clubs but in the end, only one team met our lofty transfer fee of $650,000; Oldham Athletic.


Naumoff leaves Exeter City after a career high 9 goals and 8 assists in only 34 games last season.


With Ojamaa coming in as a striker and some young depth on the bench, we transfer listed 26 year old Aaron Schoenfeld to see if we could get some more money into the team. We ended up accepting a transfer fee of $625,000 from Crewe Alexandria for the 61 rated ST.


Aaron Schoenfeld heads to Crewe Alexandria and the hope of a starting role.


An opportunity came in for us to sell a youth player and it was one I couldn't pass up given the high expectations for this year and the low transfer budget we were allowed. Several teams came in with bids for our exciting LM prospect, Seung Il You (65 OVR), but AS Nancy blew everyone out of the water with a $5.5 million offer. Even with Naumoff gone, a starting role for the young youth graduate was up in the air with his lack of pace and only three midfield positions open. Ultimately, the large transfer fee was the biggest reason for this move and one that opened the door to further acquisitions.

With the significant increase to our budget from the Naumoff, Schoenfeld and especially You sales, Exeter City were in a position to solidify the midfield and invest in a quality goalkeeper.

The first move was for Italian goalie Eric Lora from Roma. After enquiring about his purchase and hearing he had just joined the team, we were happy enough to just loan in the 18 year-old as a try-out for the season. At 67 OVR, he was already an upgrade over Christy Pym (59 OVR) who had shown flashes of quality play but just wasn't growing his skills.

Once the goalkeeper position was upgraded, the revised midfield was the next focus. With scouts in America for most of the last season, we had some good targets to look at for potential moves. The top guy on our list was American RM Joshua Gatt who was playing at FK Molde. They accepted our initial offer but we were unfortunately out bid and weren't able to counter in time. Our next highest player was Zach Pfeffer (68 OVR), a 21 year old CM at the Philadelphia Union. We were able to lock him into a 4 year deal for a transfer fee of $2.2 million.


Zach Pfeffer moves to England to join Exeter City on a 4 year deal.

The last signing of the window was 18 year old CM John Beavon (65 OVR) from PAOK. The young midfielder showed great strength and playmaking ability after his 1st season and would come in to be the primary bench player for Exeter City. He was showing great potential and cost Exeter City $2.5 mil and 63 OVR CAM Sean Davis. It was more than we wanted to spend but signing the English midfielder would help down the road.


Sean Davis(above) heads to PAOK as part of a deal for John Beavon.

With the player exchanges complete and a few games under our belts, Exeter City sits 6th in the table as of September 1st 2016. Automatic promotion will not come easy but the player transfers have upgraded the squad into a team with a fighting chance.

The only other notes are a few youth academy players who have made the senior team. They are:

Tim Doyle, 60 OVR LW (AUS)
Scott Batt, 54 OVR LM (ENG)
Tim Stevens, 62 OVR CAM (AUS)

We will be putting all of our efforts into gaining promotion this season so the cup games will not be prioritized. I plan to play one game each month, probably against the top teams in the league. The next update will be the June 1st 2017 end of the season re-cap.

I was right. Called up way too soon. An ERA close to 9 is tough to swallow after a whole season in the minors combined of less than 2. At least my new contract is a AAA one. I am on the 40-man, so I do have to go to Spring Training. No updates here unless they're significant.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

Toronto Blue Jays at Boston Red Sox
Apr 18, 2016123456789RHE
Toronto (3-9)000000000020
Boston (5-6)0000200002132
W: D. Price (3-0) L: M. Estrada (0-3) S: C. Kimbrel (3)


BOSTON, MA - After a strong start to the season the Red Sox find themselves in a bit of a tailspin. Boston finished a home series against Toronto today coming off a four game losing streak that included a three game sweep at home to Baltimore. The Red Sox would turn to David Price to halt the skid in a rematch with Marco Estrada, and he didn't dissapoint.

It seems like these two teams have eachother's number, or at least Estrada and Price do. For the most part this game was very much like their first meeting, with both teams going scoreless through four innings. The biggest difference today was Boston's ability to get hits, but it didn't matter much as they didn't convert into runs.

Luckily for Red Sox fans, the only inning of action broke their way and Boston took advantage of a crazy series of events to take a lead. Things started out when Rusney Castillo tried to score from second on a Jackie Bradley Jr. single, but Jose Bautista gunned him down at home plate from right field. Bradley then stole second where he scored from easily when Mooke Betts hit an RBI double off the Green Monster. Three pitches later Betts tried to steal third and was rewarded with an errant throw by Russell Martin which allowed him to race home and give Boston a 2-0 lead.

Estrada lasted longer today but failed to finish the 6th inning after giving up ten hits on the day. He did manage nine strikeouts, but his efforts were overshadowed by Price. Price would leave after the 7th having only allowed a single hit and fifteen strikeouts. Carson Smith and Koji Uehara combined for holds and handed things off to Kimbrel in the 9th, and three strikeouts later the game was over.

Boston really needed a win after a rough AL East slate that would roll into a series with Tampa Bay at home and a rough road trip to Houston.

Exeter City surpassed the board's expectations this season and managed a hard fought promotion up to League 1. After finishing the regular season in 6th place, we managed to grab the last promotion place via the League 2 play-off. We sat 1-0 down after the opening round's first leg to Peterborough but a big 3-1 win in the second leg sparked the Grecians to a 5-0 win over Tranmere Rovers in the final match.

Along the way, I managed to keep the team split between two solid squads which helped to spread out the playing time. This kept most of the players happy and spread out the player growth but ultimately, I lost out on two solid players. Smalley, a 60 OVR ST and McEleny, a 62 OVR CAM, were original players to the team which I wanted to keep. Both were great off the bench and really helped solidify the team but I just didn't have the wages to keep them. Both wanted crucial 1st team roles and I didn't have the cash to double or triple their wages in order to keep them for lesser roles.

A few more youth players were signed throughout the season, most importantly Seung Il You, a 63 OVR LM from Korea who was an exciting prospect. We ended the season with a roster of 33 players which didn't even include our biggest signing. Our only move in the January window was a free transfer for Henrik Ojamaa of Scottish team Motherwell. The 26 year old Estonian forward was showing great potential and rated at 72 with his contract set to expire. We got him on a free transfer for $10,000 in weekly wages and look forward to adding him into our starting side for next year.
