Salem is Your Season 34 Champion!

The Season 34 Playoffs are in the books, and it's Salem that emerges with the Championship trophy, defeating the Florida Sharks in the World Series in 5 games.  Salem has been among the elite teams in Cobbfather for the past few seasons, earning a #1 Power Ranking in Season 32 and 33, as well as twice in Season 34.  #1 ranked teams haven't fared too well in the playoffs in the last 4 seasons, but Salem broke the mold in winning the Season 34 title.  They took out a tough Cheyenne team in the Divisional Round and outlasted an upstart Jackson team in six-game ALCS battle.  The key for Salem this postseason was their outstanding pitching, posting a stellar 2.22 ERA, while still putting up good offensive numbers.  Congrats to wvwc on finally breaking through, leading Salem to its first Cobbfather championship!

Florida and dodgersrays definitely deserves a mention for their continued excellence, reaching the World Series 5 out of the last 9 seasons.  While they haven't won it all yet, many of us have not been there at all, so kudos on this feat of remarkable consistency as one of the NL's best teams.

That does it for Season 34, see you back soon for Season 35!
