Meet the Newport Noibats, Cheney Chars and Spokane Squirrtles

This year I decided to try Yahoo fantasy baseball. What I didn’t expect was I would be managing three teams – a result of me clicking on the “join league” tabs by accident. Like last year, I named my teams’ mascots after Pokemon but this time I chose cities from my home state of Washington: Newport Noibats, Spokane Squirrtles and Cheney Chars.

This year I’ll try my best when it comes to writing recaps of each team. Without further adew, here are the rosters.
