Dagorlad, Dyson Trade Made

Thursday, November 29th, 2029
You can't always get what you want, but sometimes you find a deal anyway. The Baseball News Network is reporting that Dagorlad and Dyson have made a swap with 28-year-old starting pitcher Gollomer Giantmasher being shipped to the Spheres and in return the Disaster would get 19-year-old minor league center fielder Shavia Casablanca and 21-year-old minor league shortstop Brian Amendola.

The Dyson general manager said the two sides were close to a blockbuster trade before agreeing upon a smaller scale transaction. "This is just a bit of housekeeping compared to what we wanted to do," he said. "I won't name names, but the potential deal we were close to making would have certainly grabbed some headlines." A source inside the Dagorlad organization said the two sides might not be done dealing, and another transaction could be in the works.

In his career Giantmasher has amassed 17 wins and 14 losses with an ERA of 4.68 and 212 strikeouts.

Dead Marshes Outfielder Wins Aragorn MVP

Friday, November 16th, 2029
There were a lot of firsts this year for the Dead Marshes Uruk-hai, but one of the proudest accomplishments had to be that of Thraryn *Samarkand. *Samarkand, 25, not only hit .364 to lead all SGCBL batters and won his 2nd Legolas Fielder award in CF and his 2nd straight Shadowfax Stolen Base award, but he became the first Aragorn MVP winner for Dead Marshes in franchise history.

Finishing 2nd in the voting was the MC Sam Gamgee Batter winner, Hisin Rockdelver of Dol Guldur, who batted .303 with 40 HR and 124 RBI. Gleonyc Kendrick (17-7, 1.93 ERA) of the Ravenhill Darkwings was third.

*Trollbasher Wins Shire MVP

Friday, November 16th, 2029
Earlier, Brutus *Trollbasher won his third consecutive Sam Gamgee Batter Award, and today he was rewarded with his third straight Aragorn MVP. *Trollbasher was the easy choice in the Shire Conference after leading the Minas Ithil Wyrms to their second SGCBL title. He hit .360 with 37 HR and 102 RBI, but on top of that the fleet footed catcher threw in 34 stolen bases.

Coming in second to *Trollbasher was Old Forest's Elle-Rhonda *Hubbard who batted .302 for the Merry Fellows with 39 HR and 121 RBI. *Trollbasher's teammate, Levi Legura (20-2, 2.27 ERA) who won this year's Gandalf Pitcher Award, was third in the voting.

"Beings will come Frodo. They'll come to Middle Earth for reasons they can't even fathom. They'll turn up your road not knowing for sure why they're doing it. They'll arrive at your door as innocent as hobbits, longing for the past. Of course, we won't mind if you look around, you'll say. It's only 2 gold pieces per person. They'll pass over the gold without even thinking about it: for it is gold they have and peace they lack. And they'll walk out to the bleachers; sit in shirtsleeves on a perfect afternoon. They'll find they have reserved seats somewhere along one of the baselines, where they sat when they were children and cheered their heroes. And they'll watch the game and it'll be as if they dipped themselves in magic waters. The memories will be so thick they'll have to brush them away from their faces. Beings will come Frodo. The one constant through all the years, Frodo, has been baseball. Middle Earth has rolled by like an army of Mumakil. It has been erased like a slate, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. This field, this game: it's a part of our past, Frodo. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh... beings will come Frodo. Beings will most definitely come." - Torrenz Mantalker, Gladden Field of Dreams
