Arizona Diamondbacks 2023 BLC World Series Champions!!

Sgerges and the Arizona Diamondbacks 2023 Big League Chew World Series Champions. The Diamondbacks, who led all of BLC with 116 wins in the regular season as well as sweeping their way through the playoffs, have defeated the Tampa Bay Rays in a hard fought 6 games. Capped off by a masterful 11K Complete Game Shutout Gem from Ace Luis Castillo, who notched 2 wins in the Fall Classic earning him WS MVP honors. Rays GM Gurunick could not be reached for comment, but we hope to see him lurking in the Rays dugout come Spring Training. Looks to be an interesting and busy off-season as BLC teams retool for their own attempts at a run for the title. So enjoy Arizona, but watch your Diamond"backs".
