Cooperstown Roster 2018


After a heartbreaking loss in the championship that denied the Iron Horses of a rare back to back championship victories, Cooperstown entered the offseason in a state of uncertainty.
 
After the Jose Fernandez tragedy and Madison Bumgarner and Brandon McCarthy expected to miss half the season, along with holes at 1B, DH and SS, and no bullpen to speak of, owner Jon Stamets was considering a rebuild. He kept his plan fluid, but through a series of deals was able to bring in sluggers Encarnacion and Zimmerman along with a solid SS Jordy Mercer.  After adding workhorse SP Cole, a solid roster began to take shape... but what about that bullpen?
 
It became obvious early on that Cooperstown would be targeting relievers with their picks.  In a pre-draft trade they acquired Lyons and McGee for a trio of draft picks. With their first 2 picks, both in the 3rd round, they grabbed a couple of live arms in Goody and Kahnle. Then Hildenberg in the 4th made a solid group of 5 to add to Uehara already on the roster.  Adding Matt Bush, Jason Motte and Mike Dunn added some depth.
 
When the dust settled, Iron Horse fans saw a team ready to once again fight for the playoffs.  It's an aging roster, and this may be a last hurrah, but after the first 2 weeks of the season, Stamets is thrilled with the 9-3 start, especially considering Kershaw, Bumgarner and McCarthy have started the season on the DL.  
 
Will they be able to keep up the good work?  Only time will tell
