Manager Earl Weaver Sr. spent the whole day down in the Knight's bullpen and you could hear him all the way into the clubhouse."These $^$% Relievers are on holidays....they get paid millions of dollars to pitch 1-2 innings and they could't hold a lead if their life depended on it."

As a result Jason Grilli( 1-0,2.28) has been moved to the closers position.Rookie Evan Scribner (1-0,1.59) slides into late and tied while former closer Vinnie"The Hitman" Pestano (1-0,5.87) moves to middle relief.THe former closer when asked how he felt about his demotion.All i said was ,"Skippy calm down,its early in the season,we are in 1st place." According to Pestano Weaver blew a fuse...."I was shocked ," said Vinnie...I told him he should move to Canada and smoke a dooobie." " The Next thing a know i middle relief."

Weaver refused to answer the media before tonight's games against New Mexico The Long Run (22-11)good enough for second 1 game behind the surprising BAYSIDE OWLS .

The Black Knights (59-34) have added Catcher Joe Mauer for the stretch drive."We needed a strong LH batter between Braun and Pujols and Joe fits right in," said Weaver before tonight's game against New Mexico The Long Run also sporting a 59-34 record.Both teams are 2 games behind the BAYSIDE OWLS who are 61-32 ,the best overall record in "Those Were The Days League. Mauer who played with Miguels 3 crowns was batting .296 with an OBP.386.
The Knights hold a 10 game lead over second place Monkeys and Savages in the Eastern Division. They are lead by SP FELIPE PAULINO (12-2,2.59) and League leading MVP Ryan Braun (.332/30/75) with an OBP .393 after 93 games.

SEASON:2012
wire to wire DIVISIONAL win!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

In front of 46.000 screaming fans the Black Knights(97-65) clinched their 5th Divisional title in 6 years under Earl Weaver Sr.Right fielder Nick Markakis had 4 hits and 3 RBI at Camden Yards '12 as the impressive Baltimore Black Knights beat the Atlanta Hitdogs 9 to 6.

Baltimore had 4 runs cross the plate in the bottom of the 4th inning when they had 4 base hits. The critical plate appearance was by Markakis, who made the home-town crowd a happy bunch when he doubled which was good for two runs. Baltimore ended up with 13 hits for the game while Atlanta had 9.

The winning pitcher was Kris Medlen(21-8) who allowed 6 runs in 6 innings. Jason Grilli earned his 18th save. Jhoulys Chacin(8-15) was given the loss. He allowed a few too many baserunners giving up 9 hits and 2 walks in 4 and 1/3 innings.
"Its nice to have a few days off,"said Weaver,"the guys are pretty beat up and we have not been playing very good baseball the last 20 games ."The Knights will have a few days off between opening the best of 5 against Kilen Woods Snow Savages who finished 2 games behind the Knights.

The Knights announced the team awards and here are the results for 2012:
Team MVP:
LF Ryan Braun (.337/58/135) captured his 3rd Team MVP and his 2nd League MVP Award in leading the Knights this year to the play-offs.Top pitching award was given to SP Kris Medlen (21-8,3.14) while SP Felipe Paulino (19-5,3.70) took home most improved player.RP Evan Scriber(2-2/2.96/4) in 64 innings was named ROY.

The 2012 quarter finals are over and the Black Knights have eliminated Kilen Woods Snow Savages 3-0 and will move on to face the New Mexico The Long Run (103-59)."Terry has a great team over there and im sure it will be a hard fought series," Weaver told reporters at the park. "The guys had 2 day's off and looked intense today during BP." Last night Ted Lilly(1-0) and Lucas Harrell(0-1) locked horns in a pitcher's duel with Lilly and the Baltimore Black Knights coming out on top of the Kilen Woods Snow Savages 4 to 0.

Lilly earned his pay with a solid performance for Baltimore. He went 8 and 1/3 innings surrendering 7 hits and 2 walks. The pitchers took over after the 2nd inning as neither team was able to score again. The Knights bullpen did not allow any runs in the 3 game series as the team exploded for 23 runs in 27 innings. The team batted .351 with 7 homeruns and OBP.413 against Savage pitching while the Knights era for the series was a sparking 1.67. This was the 2nd straight year that the Savages and Knights met in the play-offs with the Knights winning both series. Weaver has named SP KRIS MEDLEN 23-8 (including play-offs) and SP FELIPE PAULINO 19-5 as the opening game starters for the semi-finals .

"Well,that was quick," Weaver Sr. told reporters after bowing to the New Mexico The Long Run 4-1 in the semi finals, "heck of a team over there and wish them well."Earl also announced his retirement after the 2013 season,"My son is ready, Earl Jr. and when this team starts to rebuild i think he should be the one." Jr. who is now managing the AAA FLOCKING SEAGULLS in the East Coast League was informed by his father this morning and will be joining the big club at the draft held this year in Las Vegas.Junior was unavailable for comment at press time.

Knights trade #1 pick in 2018 to acquire SP Anibal Sanchez as assistant manager Earl Weaver Jr. makes an instant splash at the Those Were The Days League 2013 draft in Los Vegas. Sanchez was 5-5/3.05 in 80 innings for New Mexico The Long Run and is expected to be the opening day starter as the Knights will try and make it 7 straight playoff appearances in a row."With no 1st round pick landing Anibal is a huge, "Junior said, "with Kris Medlen coming off a 21 win season the Knights now have a solid 1-2 combination at the top of their pitching rotation. for 2013.

VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!!!! the 2013 draft is over and the Knights are headed to spring training!!!!!!!......With most of the line-up returning from last year the Knights worked on shoring up the pitching staff. In addition to SP Annibal Sanchez the Knights have added LH SP Jeff Locke and RH SP Brandon Cumption joining CC Sabathia and Kris Medlen to complete the rotation.The bullpen needed the most work and is still the biggest question mark leaving ED Smith training center. The only returning pitcher is MR Steve Delabar (8-8/4.34/9 saves).New faces include CL Kevin Gregg and CL DANE DE LA ROSA with middle relief from RH VINNIE PESTANO , LH Scott Rice and Westly Wright.

Returning players in the batting order include Ryan Braun,Albert Pujols,Ian Desmaond,Martin Prado.Nick Markakis,Marco Scutaro, Chris Denorfia and Joe Mauer. Rookies this year are OF Kevin Pillar,2B Ryan Goins and utility player Don Kelly.Hoping to add some punch to the team Managrer Earl Weaver Sr. signed veteran DH Adam Dunn to a 2 year deal,"THE BIG DONKEY" is looking to bounce back after a horrible year(.195/25/59) with the Miguels 3 crowns team.

Its hard to say how this years 2013 team will do,they should play .500 and will need to stay healthy if their is any chance at a post season.The teams payroll this year is down to around 62 million from 105 million in 2012...maybe not enough but the Knights are a tough team and with 6 years of play-off experience...a great team leader in Braun the knights might find a way into the 2013 playoffs.

86-76 is what I predict.
Good luck all ....LETS PLAY BALL !!!!!!!
