Portland SeaDogs

Record: 59-83
Placement: Last (of 6 in Eastern/of 12 in EL)

I realize it has been very bad of me to not finish the work of the season ending report. I apologize... but, jeez, do you see the record up there. Last place teams are not so fun to talk about. That being said... it is certainly an interesting team...

We'll start with the good. The best offense in the Eastern League resided in... Portland, Maine. They led the league in OPS (761) and Slugging (422) while ranking second in BA (267) and OBP (339). They led the league in runs scored (684), doubles (298), RBI (639), and Total Bases (1996). They were second in Hits (1265), 4th in walks (459) and 5th in HRs (129... the last of 5 teams that his triple digits). They also had the fewest caught stealings (31) while ranking 5th in SBs (117). The offense does not seem to fit on a team that was 24 games under .500.

So... we jump to the pitching. And, one would expect that the team must have the worst pitching staff in the league. And, that assumption would be WRONG. The worst pitching staff (by most measures) was New Britain... who went 72-70. That being said, the pitching staff was NOT GOOD. With a team ERA of 4.78, Portland was easily the second worse staff in the league. The team gave up the second most runs and the second most earned runs (641/732) and had the second worse WHIP (1.46). They also gave up the second most hits. They did lead the league in HRs allowed (136), were 3rd in HBPs, and 6th in walks. They also had the 6th most strikeouts.

In a generally odd season, perhaps the oddest stat was that the team only had 21 saves... 6 fewer than any other team in the league.

Player of the Year:

Chih-Hsien Chiang - It seems absolutely fitting for this team to have a player of the year who is no longer even in the organization. Chiang, of course, was traded to the LA Dodgers in the Eric Bedard trade. But, before he became a Dodger, he played in 88 games for the SeaDogs, batting .340/.402/.648. He led the team with 37 doubles, 4 triples AND 18 HRs (tied with Middlebrooks). His 76 RBI and 68 runs scored were both second on the team.

Pitcher of the Year:

Alex Wilson - Alex went 9-4 with a 3.05 ERA in 21 starts (112 innings) prior to being promoted to AAA. Wilson walked 37, struck out 99 and allowed 103 hits (8 HRs).
