Season 24 Wrap Up
A new entry has been made into the Hall of Champions as Season 24 came to an end. The Buffalo Bisons were crowned World Series champs after edging out AL pennant winner Pawtucket in a tough six game series. Although not the favorite, Buffalo finished #6 in the final power rankings, indicating that they were a strong team capable of a nice playoff run after playing great down the stretch. Cy Young winner Douglas Banks was a major driving force for Buffalo in the playoffs going 5-0 in six starts with a 2.03 ERA, while Magglio Johnson crushed 8 post season homers after a mediocre regular season. This is the Bisons' first Cobbfather championship, as they lost their last World Series appearance in Season 17.
Pawtucket had an excellent regular season and post-season run led by record breaking slugger and 3-time MVP Albert Cruz. The 25 year-old slugger will be back and better than ever next season looking to take that next step.
Thanks for a great season everyone, hopefully we'll be rolling on to Season 25 soon, see you then!
