The 2020 PBA League will kick off Sept. 26 with the seeding round live on FloBowling. To help get you prepared, FloBowling correspondent Jef Goodger is ranking the 12 teams in the league.

1. Portland Lumberjacks

Division: Anthony
Manager: Tim Mack
Roster: Wes Malott, Kyle Troup, Kris Prather, Martin Larsen, Packy Hanrahan

As defending champions, the Lumberjacks are the team to beat until they’re beaten. Although they lost two reliable players in Ryan Ciminelli and Mitch Hupé, Portland’s five-player roster is perhaps still the most formidable. Malott was the 2019 Mark Roth PBA League MVP, Troup is the only three-time PBA Tour champion in 2020 and Prather is the reigning Tournament of Champions winner in addition to his victories in the Strike Derby and King of the Lanes exhibitions. Adding a returning-to-league Larsen and debuting Hanrahan (who will tell you he should’ve been the first overall pick), Portland has a good chance to repeat.
