Now Commenting On:

The 2008 Brooklyn Cyclones finished 45-30, in second place in the New York-Penn League McNamara Division four games behind the Staten Island Yankees. The Cyclones fell just 1.5 games shy of the wildcard spot eventually controlled by the Jamestown Jammers. Brooklyn burst back into the playoff race by reeling off nine straight wins from August 24th-September 1st bringing drama to the season’s final weekend.

Brooklyn led the NYP in attendance for the eighth straight year, pulling in 265,200 over 36 dates for a 7,367 average.

The Mets stock the Cyclones with the best of their recent college draftees and other A-ballers from around the system. As a result, Brooklyn has never finished below .500, coming closest in 2002, when the team was 38-38.

I’ll go through the position players today, and the pitchers tomorrow.
