THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)


BOSTON, MA - After sweeping the Rangers the Red Sox only needed to wait for the Detroit Tigers to do the same to the Oakland A's, setting up a meeting with Jon Lester and his new team. In the NL the Dodgers would beat Arizona 3-1, and the Reds would take down the Braves 3-1. Chris Archer and Justin Verlander would start for the ALCS opener, and Verlander would hope to get revenge for the 7-1 drubbing handed out by Boston earlier in the season.

Thing went well for both aces to start the game, but Verlander blinked first by giving up a solo-HR to Mike Napoli in the 2nd inning. The teams traded off scoreless 3rd innings, and then Detroit struck back in the 4th. Allen Craig pulled Detroit even with an RBI ground-rule double, and then David Wright drove him in with a double off the Green Monster. Anthony Rendon topped off the 3R inning with a single that brought Wright in from 2nd.



Miggy's slam puts Detroit ahead for good.

The teams traded another scoreless inning before Napoli struck again with an RBI single that scored Xander Bogaerts from 2nd after a ground-rule double of his own. Down 3-2 Archer took a seat after the 7th inning and Anthony Ranaudo took over, but he wouldn't be able to hold the potent Tigers offense back. Miguel Cabrera pushed the score to 5-2 with a 2R-HR before Ranaudo could get out of the inning. Bogaerts answered back with a solo-HR in the bottom of the inning that sent Verlander packing, but the Red Sox offense couldn't get any more. Sergio Romo came in for the 9th and used three straight strikeouts to give Detroit a 1-0 lead in the series.

Cano walk-off lifts Mariners to win

Seattle - It was a pitchers duel on Monday night at Safeco, with the Mariners coming out on top thanks to the heroics of Robinson Cano. He lifted a 2-1 fastball into right field to end the game and give the Mariners a 2-1 victory. Clay Buchholz, and Hisashi Iwakuma were both outstanding for their teams each giving up just one run over the course of the game, but the Mariners bullpen proved to be the better of the two squads on this night. The two teams are back at it tonight with Jake Peavy (5-6, 4.25 ERA) set to face off against Chris Young (4-6, 3.61 ERA).

Hey, before I even start, I want to talk about the roster. Itīs based on starting day rosters of 2011-2012 season, and the stats are changed. I used elknavoīs Comprehensive Simulation Stat Mechanics Guide to change these rating. Some players have too good shooting stats, thatīs because I wanted them to get as close as possible to their real FG%. Also, I have 2012 draft class ready to use. Used that same guide so the rookies wonīt be scoring like 25 points per game. I will edit 2013 draft class to that too, and will be making 2014 draft class. So, letīs get started. Iīm going week by week. Iīm playing 1 game at week. Others will be simulated. Settings are 12 minute quaters, all-star difficulty, simulation sliders and real player % are on both field goals and free throws.

Mariners drop finale 6-2

Kansas City - The Royals were able to get to Felix Hernandez in this one, and the Mariners couldn't do anything with the opportunities they had as they dropped the rubber match of this weekend series. Alex Gordon busted it open for the Royals with a two run shot in the fourth inning, Felix would give up another as well still going seven innings in the losing effort. The Mariners will now return home to start a three game series with the Boston Red Sox. It will be Clay Buchholz (5-3, 3.76 ERA) taking the mound for Boston to face off with Hisashi Iwakuma (6-5, 3.18 ERA).

Mariners lose in extras to Royals 4-3

Kansas City - Lorenzo Cain had a solo home run, and drove in the winning run in the 13th inning as the Royals topped the Mariners Saturday afternoon. The Mariners couldn't get a hit in the four extra frames, as the Kansas City bullpen slammed the door on the Mariners. It looked like the Mariners were going to pull it out after taking the lead late on a James Jones sac fly, but that was the last offense they would see. The Royals were able to tie it in the bottom of the 8th, and then hold the Mariners at bay until they were finally able to push through. The two teams will deal their aces tomorrow in the rubber match as Felix Hernandez (8-6, 2.31 ERA) will take on James Shields (5-8, 2.91 ERA).

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)


BOSTON, MA - The ALDS opened today with an Opening Day rematch between the Boston Red Sox and Texas Rangers. It would also be a rematch for Chris Archer and Yu Darvish, but this time Archer would be able to rely on a little more offense. While Boston would come into this game as considerable favorites, their early season struggles are a reminder that they might just be riding an incredible hot streak.

Darvish and Archer traded off scoreless innings until Mookie Betts broke the deadlock in the bottom of the 3rd. A simple sac fly brought in Will Middlebrooks after a triple for a 1-0 lead. Texas came right back in the next inning with a Shin-Soo Choo 3R-HR thanks to a high and tight fastball from Archer. Texas enjoyed a 3-1 lead until the 5th when the Red Sox pulled ahead again. Jackie Bradley Jr. used a single to drive in Betts from 2nd, and then Xander Bogaerts knocked a 2R-HR for a 4-3 lead.



Darvish wasn't nearly as sharp as on Opening Day.

The game was tight until Boston widened the lead in the 6th inning with an extended rally, but Texas managed to keep the damage to a minimum. After Darvish was pulled for putting a man on 2nd and 3rd Alexi Ogando intentionally walked Middlebrooks to face Betts. Betts took advantage and hit a 2RBI single to put Boston up 6-3. With David Ortiz coming up Betts stole 2nd to avoid the double play, and Ogando was forced to intentionally walk Ortiz to face Bradley Jr. Ogando got lucky this time with Bradley Jr. and Bogaerts popping out to end the inning.

The game rolled on with Texas failing to pose much of a threat and Archer took a seat after the 7th inning having allowed only 2H with 12K. Braden Shipley came in and shut Texas down for the 8th, just before Boston blew them away to seal the victory. Middlebrooks started the rout with a 2R-HR, then Bogaerts with an RBI single, then a Dustin Pedroia sac fly, and finally a Napoli RBI double off the Green Monster. 5 runs later it was 11-3 and Texas was toast.

Mariner bats explode for blowout win

Kansas City - The Mariners matched their best offensive showing of the year. Scoring 13 runs while banging out 17 hits to coast to a victory in their series opener. Brad Miller, and Endy Chavez each had three hits, while Willie Bloomquist turned in a four hit day for the M's. John Buck delivered the crushing blow in the six run 5th inning with an opposite field three run homer that put it out of distance for the nose diving Royals. The Mariners will look to continue their winning streak tomorrow when they send James Paxton (3-3, 3.71 ERA) to the mound to take on Jeremy Guthrie (2-7, 5.96 ERA).

Mariners wake up late to steal one from Padres

San Diego - It took all game long for the Mariners offense to wake up, but they did just in time to get a victory in extra innings. Robinson Cano rocketed a double in the ninth to plate Stefen Romero, and Jesus Montero came into a pinch hit situation to drive home the winning run as the Mariners took a 2-1 victory. It looked like the Padres 1-0 lead would hold up for the whole game, but Seattle was able to knock around Huston Street for his 5th blown save of the year, and also get to Tim Stauffer next inning. The Mariners will now see how long they can float above .500 as they head off to Kansas City. They'll thow Taijuan Walker (4-7, 3.71 ERA) in the opener opposite Aaron Brooks (1-8, 6.35 ERA).

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BOSTON, MA - The regular season is over, and the Red Sox get a little break to bask in the glory of a great season. Thanks to victories in their final two games the Red Sox were able to secure the 4th 100-win season in team history, and the best record in baseball.



Chris Archer, making Red Sox fans forget about Jon lester one start at a time.

Chris Archer becomes the 10th pitcher to win the MVP and Cy Young in the same season, putting Jon Lester's 2014 season to shame. It's hard to believe how many batter Archer managed to strike out, and it's even harder to think his season could have been even better if he didn't lead the majors in walked batters. The Red Sox were also able to enjoy a few more awards this season, hopefully a sign of things to come.

Xander Bogaerts, Blake Swihart, and David Ortiz also went home with Silver Slugger awards after incredible seasons. Bogaerts was the only Red Sox player to recieve a Golden Glove award as well.

2015 AL EAST FINAL STANDINGS

The Red Sox captured the best record in baseball thanks to a stunning turnaround in offense. It was so stunning that after being one of the worst offenses in baseball they finished #1 in Runs Scored, Homeruns, Slugging %, and Total Bases. They also finish #2 in Batting Average and Hits. The part that wasn't surprising is how Boston fared on defense, mostly thanks to their pitching staff. The team finished #1 in Runs Allowed, ERA, Shut Outs, Hits Allowed, and Strike Outs with a #2 mark in Errors and Fielding Percentage.

2015 LEAGUE DIVISION SERIES MATCH UPS

The two best divisions in the AL, the East and the West, sent two teams to the playoffs. The Tampa Bay Rays went up against the Texas Rangers for the Wild Card spot and the Yu Darvish led Rangers defeated David Price in a 3-2 game.

The NL, once again, supplanted the AL in terms of drama. Atlanta easily won their division with a 93-69 record, but they would have finished fourth if they were a part of the NL West. The NL West featured three 90+ win teams, sending all of them to the playoffs, and of all the things to have happen the Dodgers (97-65) and Diamondbacks (97-65) had to have a one-game playoff to determine who would be #1. The Dodgers would win and take the NL West for the third year in a row. If that wasn't weird enough the Pirates and Reds would also duke it out to determine the division champ with the Red coming out on top. Despite losing to the Dodgers the Diamondbacks would turn things around behind Patrick Corbin to defeat Cory Luebke and the San Diego Padres 4-2 for the Wild Card spot.

AMERICAN LEAGUE

1 - Boston Red Sox (100-62)
2 - Oakland Athletics (91-71)
3 - Detroit Tigers (83-79)
WC - Texas Rangers (88-74)

The AL is probably the weaker league, but if Boston or Oakland can make it to the World Series they will have home field advantage behind them.

NATIONAL LEAGUE

1 - Los Angeles Dodgers (98-65)
2 - Atlanta Braves (93-69)
3 - Cincinnati Reds (83-80)
WC - Arizona Diamondbacks (97-66)

The Dodgers face the Diamondbacks for the second time with most picking the winner of their series to advance to the World Series. Most feel the Dodgers are still the best team in baseball despite not having the best record, but the Diamondbacks could easily go all the way if they beat LA.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BALTIMORE, MD - The Red Sox hit the road to finish the season against division foe Baltimore, and one team would not be happy with the results. Boston came into this game after a disastrous 1-6 stretch leaving them only two games away from 100 wins. The Orioles were probably looking forward to facing a team that has little to play for, but a hot streak by the Blue Jays has them at 4th in the AL East. Jered Weaver would start the game opposite Chris Archer, but only one of them would see the 4th inning.

Both aces swapped scoreless innings to start the game, but then Weaver had one of the worst innings of his life. Blake Swihart, still building his AL ROY resume, hit a 2R-HR in the 2nd to start things off. David Ortiz added an RBI single after Mookie Betts stole 2nd, and Xander Bogaerts turned the misery up to 11 with a 3R-HR to end a 6 run inning.

Weaver bravely came back out for the 3rd and managed to get two outs, but a Shane Victorino solo-HR brought Buck Showalter out of the dugout to end Weaver's day. Michael Morse pulled one back for Baltimore with a solo-HR in the 4th, but Swihart took it right back with his 2nd HR of the day in the 5th. Not to be outdone, Nick Markakis took a hanging slider from Archer and sent it into the stands for a 2R-HR.

Baltimore hung on for another inning, but the 7th became another nightmare. Mike Napoli added another run with a solo-HR, and then David Ortiz made it 10-3 with an RBI single on a Steve Lombardozzi throwing error to first. Jackie Bradley Jr. capped off the inning with an RBI single to score Ortiz and make it 11-3.



Swihart must be the AL ROY, it wouldn't be fair otherwise.

Unfortunately for the Orioles, the Red Sox weren't done. The poor Baltimore bullpen just couldn't get out of the 9th to end the misery, giving up another pair of RBI singles from Ortiz and Bradley. Xander Bogaerts completed the beating with a 3R-HR for an emphatic 16-3 beating. Swihart, now hitting 5th for Boston, may have clinched the ROY race today with a 3/5 2HR performance.

THE BOSTON GLOBE (RED SOX DYNASTY REPORT)

BOSTON, MA - The divisional races are basically locked up and Boston is starting to take their foot off the gas, and back-ups are getting more playing time in anticipation for the playoffs. Chris Archer, within a few strikeouts of 400 for the season, would start tonight in an effort to continue shattering records. The Blue Jays would start Marcus Stroman who is fast becoming one of the best pitchers in baseball.

Things looked really bad for Boston right away with a brutal inning from Archer. Jose Bautista blew the game open with a 3R-HR in the 1st, and Dioner Navarro added an RBI ground-out on a near double play thanks to a rare Dustin Pedroia throwing error. The double play would have ended the inning and staunched the bleeding, but Archer had to strike out Tony Abreu to end the inning and notch his 400th strikeout of the season.

David Ortiz put the Red Sox on the board with a deep solo-HR to straight away center in the second, but things were starting to shape up like the pre-August offense. Stroman held the Blue Jays 4-1 lead through the 5th until he cracked in the 6th. Pedroia made up for his throwing error with a solo-HR that just barely topped the Green Monster, and then the Baseball Gods struck down Toronto with an improbable series of events. Navarro dropped a 3rd strike to Ortiz, probably the easiest player on the planet to throw out at 1st, but he threw the ball high and it sent it into RF which allowed Ortiz to walk to 1st and Blake Swihart to walk home from 3rd.


Stroman did not return for the 7th, still up 4-3, and neither did Archer. Rubby De La Rosa took over and shut out Toronto, but Brett Cecil wasn't as lucky. Cecil gave up a few hits and left Mookie Betts and Jackie Bradley Jr. on 2nd and 3rd for Pedroia, and he gladly drove them in with a 2RBI single and the lead. Edwin Encarnacion would tie things up in the 8th with a solo-HR, but Boston had some homers of their own waiting for Cecil. Swihart took the lead back with a solo-HR and Xander Bogaerts used a 3R blast to put the Blue Jays away for good.
