Lidom: High percentages

It is always prudent to remember that since its birth in 1951, the Dominican league has been dominated by 3 teams: Licey, Águilas and Escogido. The Stars, which also started in 1951, have never been able to get close, neither have the Bulls, born in 1983, nor the Giants, added in 1996.

I specify the statistical fact that Licey and Águilas now share the leadership of crowns or titles won in Lidom, both with 22, the Chosen One has 16, the Bulls and Stars 3, the Giants 1.

Adding Licey and Águilas gives 44 crowns, or 66% of the total, and between Licey-Águilas – Escogido they add 60 crowns, for 89.5%. And if you do it the other way around, that is, add Bulls-Stars and Giants, they will give you 7 titles or 10% of the total.

The imbalance is more than evident, despite the fact that it is touted that the rookie draft, which is now 20 years old, has caused an important balance in the league.

Is it true that balance? I think that many teams have grown in quality and are more competitive, but they only have one basic problem: it is difficult for them to win the final and that is more than evident.

It is possible that this will vary in the next 10 years, because in the last 10 the Bulls have won 2 titles, the Stars and Giants one, and that means 40% (4 out of 10).

And if you want more good data: in the last two championships two have been in the hands of the smallest, Stars in 2019 and Bulls in 2020.

THE NEW: Let’s see some notes from the teams and how their management personnel have changed.

EAGLES: They repeat last year’s winning trio. Quilvio Hernández president, Ángel Ovalles manager and Félix Fermín manager.

SELECTED: Luis Manuel Bonetti is the president now, with José Miguel Bonetti as vice president. Rodney Linares enters as manager and José Gómez remains in management.

STARS: Miguel Feris is the president, Félix Peguero opens as manager and the 2019 champion manager, Fernando Tatis, returns.

GIANTS: Samir Rizek remains in the presidency and manager Luis Urueta and manager Jesús Mejía repeat.

LICEY: It has 3 newcomers, Ricardo Ravelo president, Carlos José Lugo manager and Tony Díaz manager.

BULLS: Luis Rodríguez Amiama, president, Raymond Abreu, manager, and Lino Rivera, manager, are still in command.

With these executive cadres, who are you going to?

THE MANAGERS: Only one manager out of the 6 will have a debutant tag at Lidom. It’s Tony Diaz, from Licey, who is a third base coach with the Minnesota Twins. The others are veterans of the league: Félix Fermín de las Águilas, Luis Urueta de los Gigantes, Rodney Linares with Escogido, Fernando Tatis Estrellas and Lino Rivera with Toros.
