Season 23 Wrap Up - Helena repeats!
Helena was on a mission this postseason, and they could not be stopped, resulting in them become back-to-back champions in Kenny Powers. After a tremendous regular season, their momentum carried on into the playoffs, defeating Wichita in 4 games, then steamrolling Seattle in 4 games in the ALCS, and finally taking out underdog St. Louis, who had defeated 2 100-win teams on their way to the World Series, in 5 games. Helena crushed the ball in the postseason, posting a .335 team batting average with 24 Home Runs in 13 games. While their pitching staff had a 4.50 team ERA in the playoffs, they always came up with big performances when needed and were there to support the incredibly hot offense. It seems Helena was the team of destiny in Season 23, congrats to bluebaran on going back-to-back and earning a 4th Kenny Powers title overall. And kudos to St. Louis on a tremendous postseason run, conquering the 2 NL powerhouse 100-win teams to get to the World Series. A third such triumph was just too much of a task.
That's it for Season 23, see you back for Season 24 after a hopefully quick rollover!
