Week 20- Recap

Tue, Aug 20, 2013

The last regular season Sunday was one to remember, then drink a lot of beer and totally forget…special winks to Kirby, Joe, Mitch, and Camarra. Let’s see what we do remember….I think we saw the sweeping 86er’s give themselves a “second chance” at this season,  TNT finding and exploiting the Yeti’s softest of spots, and the greying of Mike McNelis’s stash in yet another one-run loss. So now that our livers have dried up some and our brain cells have regenerated to at least their normal state of slowness, let’s find out what else happen in Week 20.

12PM

Field #1: 2nd Chance vs. Gibson (GBlack)

It really WAS bananas!

All of the sudden 2nd Chance looks like a team no one wants to fuck with. Riding a season high 2-game winning streak, they faced the hapless yet lovable Gibson. Scoring first and often, the 86ers came out guns blazing, tallying 5 runs in the first inning and did not let up. Huge offensive games by Jake, Mike Q, Sgt. Andre, Jeff “You can never burn me in LF” Gutowski, and Miles, the last three all homering. When reached for comment, Manager and master motivator Mayor Al Buttah said: “Our deeeeeeeee was tight but the bats were just bananas, kid!” Winning their first of two games on Sunday had the Saloon streaking (keep your cloths on Andre, its a figure of speech) and all greased up for the Clemerican showdown at 2:00pm. The Gibson finish the season win-less at 0-18 and have totally lulled the #1 seed to sleep for the playoffs, we know that is the plan.

( 2nd Chance – 23 / Gibson – 2 )

Field #2: Soft Spot vs. Turkey’s Teachers (Shortz)

No means No, Donna. WHEN WILL YOU LEARN!

As I feared, the depleted Yetis fell to the Teachers in a 9 on 9 battle. Most of the TNT glory goes to shortstop Shane “don’t call me Ted Mosby because I don’t watch the show” Neufeld, who went 6-6, hitting 3 homeruns, and pulling a “Soriano” with 10 RBIs. The Teacher’s tacked on an additional 4 Homers as they closed out their season by winning 3 out their last 5 games. Game ball goes to Lena “don’t call my brother Ted Mosby because he doesn’t watch the show” Neufeld for calling a great game for winning pitcher Haz Khawaja (so that‘s your last name).

My condolences go out to the Yetis; looks like Donna Martin will not graduate in this story.

( Teachers – 20 / Soft Spot – 14 )

2PM

Field #1: Clemerica vs. 2nd Chance (Shortz)

Remember when I said Second Chance would “hit it where you ain’t”? Well they did and then some in their 17-7 win over Battleship Clemerica. As the future Mrs. Mayor Al Buttah and I drove home from her Bachelorette party, her impending groom broke it down for us on via speaker phone. That’s right, this recap is literally phoned in. Enjoy.

( 2nd Chance – 17 / Clemerica – 7 )

Field #2: RBar vs. 3 Kings (GBlack)

With both teams combining for a total of 60 Home Runs for the season, this clash of muscles and tattoos played out more like Thunderdome than a softball game. The Big Blue Machine jumped on The Majestic Ones in the top of the 1st, scoring 2 on rbi singles by Bobby and Rich. Not letting this slip through their claws, Coach Stash McNelis took the game by the cojones with the go-ahead RBI single in the 5th to give his squad a 4-3 advantage. But you can only keep HR swings down for so long, as Bums’ Sam G. and Mikey “Stare at my Huge Biceps” Black gave the Rbar a 7-4 lead going to the bottom 7th inning. One tactic that we would not recommend for you to use vs 3 Kings is hitting them in the head. After Tommy ‘Big L” Santoro took one off the noggin on a relay throw earlier in the game, he responded with a 2-run shot to cut down the Rbar lead. Heading into the bottom of a dramatic 9th, the score was 8-6 Rbar. 3Ks managed to get runners on 2nd and 3rd with no outs only to see the Bum’s D-lo and Bobby turn a double and not allow a run to cross the plate.
Rbar finishes the 2013 season with a impressive 15-3 record and have locked up 2nd overall seed at the least. This was 3 King’s 10th game decided by 2 runs or less. #cardiacking. They wrap up the 2013 campaign 9-3, but have established themselves as a very dangerous team heading into the tournament.

WSL Editorial Note: We send out condolences to the 3 King family as they lost one of their own, former teammate Jeff “Bucky” Paulino, who was killed in a motorcycle accident this past week. He played on the squad in 2011 & 2013. Also 3K favorite son, Billy Gruarin, is headed for Afghanistan and will be gone for the remainder of the 2013 season. We all hope billy makes it back safely for a return in 2014! We all thank you for your service.

( RBar – 8 / 3Kings – 7 )

4PM

Field #1: Loggers vs. Good Co. (Shortz)

Livin’ Life in the Pink Lane

The Brooklyn Loggers were unable to gather any momentum in their final regular season game, taking a 17-5 loss at the hands of the Pinks. Hall of Fame Logger Tommy “Shatter-ak” Paterak made a guest appearance for his team of yore, going 3-4 with 2 RBIs and a run scored. However, the Pinks were consistent with their bats, scoring 2 or more runs in 7 of the 8 innings they got up to the plate. The Pink Lady-Ladies were running the show in the infield, with Stacy “Death Rowe” rocking it at shortstop and going 4-5 with a couple RBI’s, while Korin held down 1B and went 3-5.

As for the Pink Lady-boys, Cesar crushed the ball all day as his calves threatened to bust out of his baseball pants, EJ hit a bases clearing homer, and Dom hit real well in the number 2 slot, moving runners around all day and has fully embraced his pinkness by purchasing a new pink 7/11 hat while doing his best Oprah impression when handing out pink socks to the team. “You get a pair of pink socks, and you get a pair of pink socks, EVERYONE GETS A PAIR OF PINK SOCKS!!!!”

Most interesting Good Company carpools of the week:

Rich & Drew (Shane is furious)

Shirtless & EJ (intensity meets mellow)

Mr. & Mrs. Jen Ten Hughes (awkward silences)

Although a scheduling snafu took this game off and then back on the schedule, the Loggers have formally requested that this game get replayed next week because “we didn’t expect to lose again.”

( Good Co – 17 / Clemerica- 7 )

Field #2: duckduck vs. Brooklyn Bowl (Shortz)

Duckduck lost in a heartbreaking, 10th inning walkoff against Brooklyn Bowl. The game was tight the whole way. The Bowlers were up 11-5 after a big 5th inning and duckduck answered with 6 runs in top of the 6th to tie it up. BB took a 16-15 lead into the top of the 9th and duckduck scored two, aided by a controversial call that would have been the third out. A Bowler tantrum ensued at umpire Kevin “nicest guy in the league” Belz as duckduck pulled ahead in the bottom of the 9th. The Bowlers scraped one run to tie it up, but duckduck just couldn’t score in the top of the tenth. Then Pat Snajder delivered the game winning seeing-eye single up the middle as Jay Silver raced home for the game winning run.

Bowler standouts included Jay Silver (4-6 with a HR), Pat Snajder (4-6 with 4 RBIs), Kate Dehnel (3-5) and Ted Houghton (5-5). Somehow the inebriated Godsy still managed to go 5-6 at the plate but was 0 for lifetime in behavior. As for the Ducks, there was great camaraderie despite the crushing loss. Homeruns were had by Jonesy, Sandor, Andy Boy Broccoli and Adam da Bomber (x 3). It was just little mistakes in the field throughout that resulted in duckduck’s undoing.

( Brooklyn Bowl – 17 / duckduck- 16 )

6PM

Field #1: Black Betty vs. Pete’s (Shortz)

It was not your typical day at the WSL office for these two teams. After a losing day on the blacktop, players from both Pete’s and Betty were almost too drunk to play as WSL learned that BAC actually stands for Blood Alcohol Content. *rimshot*

In his last game for WSL ever (you will be terribly missed), Kirby played a few innings without his glove in left center. Check out this endearing WSL video sendoff of him running to first base, bat still in hand.

Onto the actual recap:

Pete’s scored some runs early. Betty tied at 6 in the 5th or 6th inning.

After not hitting and making many non-Betty like errors, the door was opened for Pete’s to build a significant lead of 5 going into the 9th. The Black would score one more run, but ran out of fuel making “Orange the new Black” for the second time this season. Coach Sam’s stars for the week include Ed for superb at third, Dom for having a huge three run triple, and Christine Vu for having a great game at 2nd and more importantly, for rocking some awesome lipstick.

( Pete’s – 13 / Black Betty – 9 )

Field #2: Spike Hill vs. Brooklyn Bowl (Mo)

Hm….what to do between those 10am and 6pm games…a Secret Pizza Party, perhaps? Although, they seemed to have lost Matt Silverman somewhere along the trip…


By the time these teams took the field, the sun was setting and the Gibson may have, in fact, completely run out of beer. Attempting to hide Godsy in Right Center proved a fatal move, as 4 out of the first 5 batters on Spike Hill hit home runs…to Right Center, setting a nice friendly tone for the game. It took the Bowlers a few innings to get their revenge with a 3 run bomb by Derek Evers when they figured out Mitch was too busy chasing butterflies in the outfield to deal with their pesky fly balls (or the ones being thrown at him from the sidelines by a rowdy JL all game), leaving Mike Powell to gazelle across the outfield to make some amazing plays. Special appearance in Right Field by Coach O’Malley himself was enough to secure a healthy audience of hecklers. Although it was tied 7-7 in the 3rd inning and some stellar infield efforts by Derek and Palma, Spike Hill led for most for most of the game, with Greg “Birthday Boy” Todd and Kelly Southerland contributing 4 hits each and a gaggle of home runs. Overall, it goes down in the books as an extremely entertaining game, if nothing else. O’Malley and squad have 2 games to complete their close race with RBar for the #1 seed, while Bowlers finishes their year up 11-7 and will have a long 3 week wait for some playoff redemption.

( Spike Hill – 14 / Brooklyn Bowl- 8 )

Not playing next week? Come out anyway and hang!

Toodles,

The New Additions
