Old School

The "Wait 'Til Next Year" signs are all over Danbury, TX as the Toilet once again fall short in their quest to topple the Evil Empire. After a flurry of deals, including bringing in C.C. Sabathia, Freddy Garcia, AND Keith Foulke, the team actually took a step back from last year's wildcard season. Owner Dan Kohler is reportedly in the market for a rented mule to beat throughout the winter. (There's no truth to the rumor that mules in the Danbury area are in the market for Cactus Franks jerseys in order to ensure they couldn't be beaten by Kohler.)

The bigger story out of the Derrty is the resurrection of the WeinStockings. Left for dead by fans and analysts looking for trendier picks, the Stox carpet-bombed Carolina (do they still have a team?) to cap off their impressive run to the playoffs. Now the only thing that stands between them and a chance to lose another LOC Series is their archrival and haunter of their dreams, the Truth or Consequences Cactus Franks. Longtime LOC watchers are salivating at this meeting of original franchises.

Somehow, the lower the Stox are found in the pre-season Power Rankings, the better their result seems to be. Perhaps their lowest rating to start the season will thus propel them into a big enough upset victory to unseat the defending, defending champs. Of course that seems unlikely to happen if the entire offense remains day-to-day with a variety of annoying injuries...
