BIG MACS 2017 SDSL CHAMPIONS
 
 Updated October 05, 2017

 
AVOLANCHE
 
One of the founding teams with the Tuggers Nuts. A very strong franchise with now 6 banners hanging from the rafters. The 2018 season will be one of rebuild as the Avolanche rid themselves of older players like Beltre, Ortiz and Jansen and replace them with Walker, Glasnow and Kipnis.  It will be a short rebuild though as the shrewd drafting of the manager with the most amount of titles will lead to another strong team in 2019.
  

Team built around  Corey Seager and youth
President and General Manager: George Avola
Assistant General Manager : Mathew Avola
Other team names : Jetstreams(1989-1994)
World Titles :6(1993, 1995, 1997, 2002, 2007, 2016)


ENFORCERS
 
As the 2016 season gets underway, the 2015 SDSL CHAMPION ENFORCERS look to continue their incredible streak of consecutive playoff appearances to 19 years in a row including nine appearances in the finals and four championship banners since 2000. The Enforcers have been previously dubbed the league OVERACHIEVERS by there competition, however that garbage talk was put to rest in 2015 with what has to be considered the most dominant season for a team in SDSL history.  The Enforcers start the 2016 season again with a  very strong team led by Stanton, Goldschmidt, Machado, McCutchen and the surprise resurgence of Justin Verlander. Through crafty wheeling and dealing, management has managed to stock the team with excellent young talent and all-star veterans in the hopes of a repeat championship.
Teams will be wise to not overlook the Enforcers as they will once again look to crush their way to the championship with big bats and superior defence……

Team built around: Andrew McCutchen, Giancarlo Stanton and Paul Goldschmidt
President and General Manager: Jeff MacDuff
Team motto : NEVER HAD A FIRST ROUND PICK WE WOULDN’T  TRADE
Arch Nemesis: Everybody else in the League
World Titles: 4 (2000,2001,2005, 2015)

 

 
BIG MACS
 
BigMac’s drafted a team from scratch in 1994 after the original league folded. A very shrewd trader Alec often takes quite a while to make a trade, but very rarely makes a bad one. As a result, the BigMac’s have celebrated two championships since 2009. The BigMacs look to be strong in the years to come with a roster stocked with young stars.

President and General Manager: Alec MacGregor
Assistant General Manager: Jacob MacGregor
World Titles:3 (2009, 2011, 2013)


 
JUNKYARD DOGS
 
The Junkyard Dogs came into existence in 1998 replacing the Alberta Prairie Dogs. Taking over a depleted roster, they quickly built a power house team within a year. Despite the still strange league decision to "start over" and have an auction the following year, management still managed to build a powerful team which went on to win back to back championships in 2003 and 2004.

CEO: Casey McCrory
World Titles: 2 (2003, 2004)

 

 208’s
 
208's had another successful season in 2015.   The team once again exceeded expectations in the standings, and played "extra baseball at the cottage" for the 12th time in a row.  But what most fans are excited about is the rise of youngsters Kris Bryant and Carlos Correa.  With a combined total of ZERO career strat games played, these guys are already being labelled as untouchable franchise players and potential future SDSL hall of famers!  The roster will continue to turn over in 2016 and management will continue to bring in future young stars.  But with young sluggers on the team who are ready to compete now, the 208s should challenge for the post-season yet again.
 

Team built around: Sonny Gray, Kris Bryant, and Carlos Correa.
Head of scouting: It's a secret!
World Titles: 2 (2008 & 2012)

 

WIB
 
Five years after joining the SDSL, WIB finally made it to the top of the heap and won the title in 2014. After an extra-innings, game 7 loss in the championship in 2012, WIB was discouraged, but continued to build a winner and in 2014 finally sealed the deal. Although "Crazy Jason" makes an occasional appearance, a strong and young core should keep the WIB manager smiling well into the future. With the Tugnutt's retirement, there will be a little more legwork for trades, but the coming years look promising. If you are trying to find WIB in the standings in 2015, you're advised to look up.
 

Team built around Tulo, Stephen Strasburg and Bryce Harper
World Titles: 1(2014)
Home Park: Nationals Park 

 

 CATALYST

The Catalyst will be sporting a new look in 2016. Out with the old and in with the new. Kershaw and King Felix are gone and the new power arms are Jacob deGrom, Corey Kluber, and Mad Max Scherzer have arrived. In 2015 the Catalyst anticipated being contenders, but the team did not show up and a quick reload was in order. The team saw the emergence of the 5 tool player AJ Pollock and local favorite Lucas Duda traded away for Blackmon and heavy hitting Miguel Sano. The Catalyst are built around strong arms in the pen and good starting pitching. The major questions are, will the old veteran adages take the team to the next level. Will Ryan Zimmerman, Juan Uribe and Kendrys Morales be enough to power the offense into the leagues top 5, or is another mediocre 8th place spot on the horizon. Stay Tuned

Team stars are Aj Pollock and Jacob deGrom.

OVERBAYS
 
The Overbays inherited an expansion team that folded mid way through the 2010 season.

Team built around Mike Trout.
President and General Manager : Andrew McCron
World Titles :0


 
MASTERBATTERS
   
New ownership, new manager, new franchise: the Masterbatters look to continue what the Banana’s started. Already scrutinized for some trades, management is sticking to their guns, showing they aren’t afraid to make the big deal, and pay whatever it takes to acquire whomever they want. The batters will look to compete in 2013, but early predictions show they will need a WIB-like run to get far in the playoffs.
 

Team built around next year.
President and General Manager : Matt Cartwright
World Titles :0
