Season 28 Wrap Up - Texas is Your Champion!
Texas has taken the World Series title in Season 28 in a hard fought series with an up-an-coming Seattle squad. After a first round sweep of Chicago, it was a constant uphill battle for Texas, falling down 3-0 vs. rival Atlanta in the ALCS, and 3-1 vs. Seattle in the World Series. When facing elimination, Texas went 7-0 this postseason, reminiscent of the 2004 Boston Red Sox. The Texas pitching staff hit some rough spots during the playoffs, posting a 4.85 team ERA, but they managed to step it up when it counted. Their top-rated offense wasn't quite as impressive as in the regular season, but managed to belt 25 homers in 17 games, and were also efficient on the basepaths stealing 16 bases in 20 attempts. This is rawdk's 4th Cobbfather title, however it's his first since Season 8!
It was also a fantastic postseason run for NL Champ Seattle, winning their first two series in 4 games, and then taking a six game battle against strong favorite Buffalo in the NLCS. They pushed Texas to their limit in the World Series taking them to 7 games, but it seemed it was just Texas' postseason for big series comebacks. Nonetheless, a well-earned congrats goes to curtiswt on a great postseason run, it seems they have a solid core of players that should be strong for the next several seasons to come.
Thanks to everyone for making it a great Season 28, see you back for Season 29 after a hopefully quick rollover!
