Wiffleball News Preseason Ranking: 11
Last Season: 9-15 (5th in AL, Lost to Maple City in ALDS)
Notable Transactions: Added Alan Amendt
Key Player: Luke Stanisci OF/P
Stanisci, a former Rookie of the Year heads into the season as the key player for the Wildcards. Since entering the league, Stanisci has been one of the more productive players. While he has been a little shaky in attendance, he really made an impact last season. The Wildcards need that bat in the lineup as his success has a major direct connection to the Wildcards success. Folks in Bourissa Hills have high hopes that Stanisci can lead this team to a winning season for the first time since 2010.
With Stanisci putting up MVP type numbers, Bourissa Hills is finally able to post a winning season which would be there first since 2010. This team is normally hovering near the .500 mark but that changes this year with Stanisci and Rehlander leading the way. Free agent pickup Allen Amendt is a key part of this team and if he is able to show up consistently, there is reason to believe that the Wildcards can finally put together a winning season. The talent is here, let's see if they can put it together.
The Wildcards pick up right where they left off and have another mediocre season with a record just under .500 for the 9th consecutive season. Indiana bans the sale of Fireball, leaving Mason Monhaut without a go to game day drink. Overall, this team has enough talent and enough experience to at least continue to hover just under the .500 mark. It would be a surprise to see them with less than 8 wins.
