MINAS TIRITH TITANS
Last year: 71-91 (3rd in Elf Division)
Major arrivals: none
Major departures: OF Justin Bats

For no real reason other than aging, the Titans crashed last year. Almost nothing went right for them, and one of the few things that did (left fielder Justin Bats and his career-high .961 OPS) signed up with Bree in December. There are reasons for optimism, including the ever-popular “it can’t happen again” argument, but it’s safe to say that the Titans can't rebound unless they rebuild.

STARTING ROTATION

Here’s the good news: Lomli Ironfist has arrived. After two years spent in the bullpen for some reason, Ironfist is going to throw 200+ innings for the Titans this year, and that’s cause for celebration. Ironfist throws the ball a hundred miles an hour, he’s averaged more than one and a half strikeouts an inning in the majors, and he’s only 23. His curveball has the potential to be the best in the game today. His sinker already is.

Now, the bad news: every single other member of the Titans’ rotation is over 30, and every single one of them had a bad year last year. Most of them had terrible ones. Lanai No-Tooth was still a decent pitcher, and Sikar Daggerdrinker can point to a poor BABIP as part of his problem, but there’s a chance that Makk Areolas and Thorin Oakenshield Jr. are done being solid starters. There’s not an obvious prospect coming up to replace them, either.

BULLPEN

Here’s the bad news: Lomli Ironfist isn’t here. He’ll do Minas Tirith more good as a starter, though. The other bad news is that there are only a few decent relievers on this team and no good ones. 40-year-old Woolley Badgerbadger is the de facto closer, but realistically he’s just a starter who's too old to do that. At this point, his biggest asset is his great name. Daero Schipper has a good fastball and that’s about it. The less said about the rest of them, the better.

INFIELD

This infield goes two deep, maybe three if you’re being generous. One is 2B/SS Rowan Sandyman, a decent hitter who makes his name mostly as the best defensive player in the league. (Is he $24 million good? Hard to say.) The other, Sarge Belamir, is an elite slugger and a “catcher” in name only. Beyond that, they have a decent hitter in todo Cotton and a couple fairly puny defensive specialists.

OUTFIELD

With Bats, this was one of the game’s best outfields. Without him, it’s... eh, still pretty good. Emmanuel Tetsuya never takes a walk, but he gets a lot of hits, has solid power and is one of the fastest players in the league. He’s paired with Moraigol the Elder, who’s only an average contact hitter but racks up the homers and the walks. If he wasn’t one of the league strikeout leaders, he’d be truly elite... even now, he’s still very good.

The third-best outfielder on the team is Mereahil Elarandel, who plays like a poor man’s Moraigol, striking out even more but hitting almost as many home runs. He plays DH, though, because Elegrina Elverara is the only competent center fielder on the team.

PREDICTION

Were we seeing decline last year, or bad luck? Hard to say, but if we split the difference, give credit for Ironfist actually playing, and subtract Bats, this is a 75-win team. (Replacing Oakenshield Jr., who’s arguably the worst CAP in the league, would also help.)
