Season Overview

Season 19: Crabs Good | Crabs Bad Superposition

The following summary mixes canon events with community lore.
With the passing of Turntables and its immediate ratification into non-physical law, the Baltimore Crabs’ chances at a postseason seemed unlikely, given their performance the season prior. Additionally, both their planned wills for the previous season had resolved successfully and shored up the team’s consistency: with their team looking stable, most Crabs fans agreed to simply accept the likely unwin tank in the oncoming season, in the assumption that Turntables would eventually be repealed.

Featuring a 2-run Home Run by Cedric Gonzalez.

The Crabs' performance in the earlseason, however, brought an unexpected shred of hope that Time For Crab could potentially still be on the horizon: on Day 10, in a game against league superstars (and thus, later, first to partytime of the season) the Philly Pies, the Crabs managed to loop and gain legitimate wins from Sun 2's blessings twice in one game before losing.

This incredible performance boosted the Crabs’ standing on the board by two Sun-wins and one unloss, leaving them in second place for their division. The Crabs then proceeded to loop twice more in the earlseason, seeming just within playoff contention through their earlseason performance if the loop-wins could simply continue.

Sadly, it was not to be. The rest of their season passed devoid of any further Sun 2 loops, and as they steadily slipped back updown the division leaderboard, the Crabs at last finished almost square in the middle of the pack with 51 unwins; far outside of playoff’s reach.

Despite quickly falling away from having a reasonable chance of making the playoffs, Season 19 was anything but a quiet season for the Baltimore Crabs.

During the Earlsiesta, shortly after watching both team captain Kennedy Loser and local umbramancer Enid Marlow swept away by floods of Immateria, star party pitcher and Smaht sibling Lorcan Smaht found themselves Turning Over into an Undertaker by the Reader’s influence: yet, trapped on the mound as a pitcher, eir inability to dive in after swept-away teammates quickly made itself clear. (Kennedy would return only twelve days later, while Enid would take almost the entirety of the season to find her way back.)

This turnover only marked the beginning of changes for the Crabs, as on Day 62, a surge of Feedback raised between the Crabs and the San Francisco Lovers. This was the first time the Baltimore Crabs had been exposed to Feedback since Season β4 had brought Tot Fox into their lineup, and in a stroke of irony, Tot was the very player lost to the Feedback in Season 19, replaced by now-Old Bay spiced ILB star Conner Haley.

Only a game after Conner had joined the team, a flood of Immateria swept away both himself, Zeruel Kramer, and the grill the two had happened to be repairing at the time. While Kramer returned only three days later, Conner remained absent for the rest of the season, perhaps to leave the Crabs to process the departure of their beloved fox.

During the Lateseason, in fear of the possibility of getting Chorbied once more, the Crabs took every measure to protect themselves; installing Heat Magnets into the Crabitat, coating the team in Eclipse SPF sunscreen, and also creating a replica of Aldon Cashmoney to protect the team from the Legendary Super Roamin’ Fifth Base. (They also made the Crabitat more Viscous, yet again.)

Their addition of the faux-Aldon (quickly nicknamed Crabmoney), however, ended up protecting them from weather in an unexpected way: a second wave of feedback left the Crabs unintentionally guilty of Funko Fraud, as Cashmoney IV was exchanged for expert batter and barista Avila Guzman of the Seattle Garages.

Only a game after this unprecedented exchange, the Crabs slipped into Party Time, and though a majority of their partying was at the hands of ‘heart of the fry economy’ Adalberto Tosser, the Crabs nonetheless managed to party and rest for the last week of the mainseason.


Despite the mainseason already proving chaotic to the Crabs, the election proved just as tumultuous (if not more so) for the cantankerous crustaceans.

On the side of Wills, while beloved Crabs pitcher Montgomery Bullock was successfully infused within the team’s Shadows, a sole wimdy sent Trinity Smaht exchanged for Fran Beans of the Mexico City Wild Wings, leaving the Smaht siblings tragically separated.

Furthermore, unsatisfied with his performance, the Worms elected to ship Jacoby Podcast right back to the Crabs (after having stolen them in Season 15) and, this time, taking Parker Meng in his place. The Crabs are overjoyed to have Podcast back home, and wish Meng all the best in her new, loamy home.

As for Blessings, a two-season drought was broken as the Crabs reaped in three blessings: Pitching Practice, Fax Numbers, and Shadowrun, powering up the pitchers on their main rotation and supercharging their shadows players for future use. Meanwhile, despite having the highest quotient of votes on it, the Crabs lost the Go Big? Go Home blessing to the Boston Flowers. In a twist of fate, out of all the players the blessing could target as the Flowers avoided it, it went straight for the Crabs, leaving Alston Cerveza an Underachiever and his prospects as a slugger highly ambiguous.

With their team looking thoroughly different from its status at the beginning of the season but nevertheless solid, and with Sun(Sun) effectively repealing Turntables, only time could tell what could be in store for the Crabs the next season.
