Who Is Hot and Not


The NL is a hot bed of contention this season as only 3 teams are considered out of the running at this time. All teams have 20 games left before All-Star break and if the schedule looks like mine, it could be a trying time for everyone. Oakland Seals seem to have righted the ship. Houston plays well in the Juice Box but can't win on the road, that is odd? Toledo is well on the road to recovery and will be crowing louder.

Milwaukee Cervezeros - 7-3, opening a gap in the North
Columbus Dragons - 9-1, in last place a few days ago to 1 game back by obliterating the AL East opponents.
Arizona High Heat - 9-1, closed the gap to 1 game by pounding the AL West.
Honolulu Warriors - 7-3, stayed 1 game back to keep pace in the West


Chicago FrozenKoreans - 3-7, was manhandled by the AL North
Washington D.C. Senators - 3-7, choked against the AL East


The AL did not have a superior attitude going into inter-league play and it showed. Only 7 teams seem to want a playoff berth this year so far as the gaps are quickly widening. All Hail The Fish! Who may break the 60 win mark for the first time after 2 very dismal seasons. New Britain didn't like the change of scenery, but the new fans love them anyway. Santa Cruz may have been in more trouble than anyone knew.

Toronto FivTs - 8-2, found their way tooling through NL opponents.
Charleston RiverDogs - 7-3, had their problems in Atlanta before barking at the rest.
Richmond Cavaliers - 6-4, Richmond poised? Charleston next, not good.
Nashville Hillbillies - 6-4, had problems in Atlanta also but kept their composure.

Louisville Whalers - 3-7, beached by the NL East
Little Rock Patriots - 2-8, had problems against the NL South
Santa Cruz Slugs - 1-9, was escargoed by the NL West
