WEEK 2 – PREVIEW

Thu, Apr 10, 2014

With 1/2 the league with perfect records and the other 1/2 tied with the Gibson for last place, is it too soon to do a “If the Season ended today” playoff bracket? The glory of Week 2 is almost upon us people,  so keep slaughtering those lambs and praying for another cloudless day! Here’s what to look forward to-

11am

Field #1: 3 Kings vs. Loggers (‘Stache)

Always Believe in Loggers!

It’s a sad day in the collective world of 3 Kings and the Loggers.  Loggers hurler, Tony B told me he’d like to dedicate this Sunday’s slobberknocker “to the memory of the Ultimate Warrior, the best face-painted wrestler ever…even ahead of Demolition.”

Of course, in his grief, Tony managed to work in a jab at 3K’s own Axe & Smasher, Billy G & Joe Tomeo. The King’s Demolition tandem debuted their new tag team apparel (plus a couple of homers) on opening weekend, and Billy was quick to fire back, “I’ll put it like this-  If you see one motherf*cker in face paint, you obviously say that motherf*cker is crazy.  But now you see two or three guys in face paint, then you say- those are some organized madmen. In softball terms, you only have to face the Ultimate Warrior once through the order, but Demolition is strategically placed throughout the line-up and once an inning you’re facing some kind of madman. RIP Warrior tho.“

I will predict an excessive number of professional wrestling theme songs to be blasting from the King’s dugout, which will certainly be enjoyed by both squads.  If we actually manage to avoid a Battle Royal, then I would have to say I’ll be disappointed.  There would be no more fitting tribute!

RIP Ultimate Warrior

Field #2: Teachers vs. AT United (Shortz)

Yes the Teachers suffered a crushing loss to an improved Loggers last week, but in Haz’s defense, a very controversial series finale of How I Met Your Mother had just aired, no doubt clouding his judgment. This week, the Teachers face off against the lively AT United, who from last week’s showing looks to be on par with their usual early peak that sizzles come playoff time.

We’ll see if my long lost Reeler pals can join the ranks of Nate “my best friend” and John Condon, (whose name has been changed to “John-eral Tso” after mauling down all the Chinese Food on planet earth last Sunday), to put up some solid defense…or fall victim to the alluring Drunk Tank as many men have before them.

1pm

Field #1: Crown Victoria vs. Spike Hill (Decker)

There will be no survivors!

In a match-up of the two winless teams in the “Group of Death,” Mayor Buttah’s 86ers meet O’Malley’s Spike Hill on field 1.  Spike Nil (it’s never too soon!) is sure to come out guns a blazin’ to prove to the WSL that last year’s championship was no fluke. Will they be ready for another worthy adversary or will Mo and co. continue spreading tetanus throughout the league?  Meanwhile, Mayor Al was disgruntled after last weekend’s loss, exclaiming that he “would rather be in any other division.”  Unfortunately for the 86ers, the divisions are set and their strength of schedule is tougher than nails (no, not that Nails, they’ll deal with her week 3). Will the Mayor, Mallory and rookie SS To Be Named Later have enough in the tank to send the reigning champs into the spiraling oblivion that is 0-2 this Sunday?  Grab a beer from the Drunk Tank and stick around to find out.

Field #2: RBar vs. Reel2Reel (Shortz)

To figure out the victor of this impending match up, many factors must be weighed. On the one hand, R Bar is feeling pretty good after trouncing defending champs Spike Hill last Sunday…but Reel 2 Reel did put on an Emmy-caliber hitting show. They will be without me though, taking away major style points…but RBar has a butt load of lefties, which I root for as a fellow lefty who also can’t use a dry-erase pen to save their life…But Coach “Line Drives” Hogan has all these awesome new recruits…

This is impossible to decide so soon into the season. Might as well flip for it.

(Flips two-headed coin).

My money’s on my Reeler’s. Now don’t make me look stoopid.

3pm

Field #1: Clemerica vs. Turkey’s Nest (Stryker)

BATTLLEEESHIPPPPP!!!  No no no Stryker. Objective reporting, that’s what they taught in journalism school. Rememeber your roots! ….

This game will be well matched by two very respected teams.  Both have excellent personalities and each player is blessed with equal athletic talent.  The Nestors will score many runs, while Clemerica will also score many runs.  Both teams won last week and will look to win this week, as well.  The defenses of both teams will try to get the other teams offense out three times per inning.  This will go on for nine innings for both Clems and the Turkeys.  This will be a game of pleasantries and class. Thank you.

Field #2: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Gibson (‘Stache)

If Week 1 action is any indication of what we can expect from this matchup, get ready for a track meet!  Brooklyn Bowl opened up the year giving up 23 runs to the Nest, while the Gibson surrendered 17 to Clemerica.  Let’s do the math…40 combined runs allowed x 60 feet per base x 4 bases per run adds up to 9600ft of base-running!  Dang!  That is just shy of 2 miles and well over 7 laps around an Olympic-sized track!  Looks like the Camarra Fitness softball training classes are improving the overall physical fitness in the WSL.  Personally, I’m hoping for a combined 50 runs in this game.  Actually, I’m getting tired just thinking about it.  Viva la Defense!

5pm

Field #1: Good Company vs. Soft Spot (Stryker)

Bad Tree Beard! Put that Down!

Week number 2 is upon us and we have a real interesting match up in the 5 slot.  Good Co. is lookin’ for its first win while Soft Spot is lookin’ to drop number 2 on everybody.  This will be the Yetis first time on field one,  Good Co. was here last week and …… lets just say they have some “deep rooted” issues with this field.  I heard Ces was down at the park all week with a cherry picker and a chainsaw opening things up. I think he is gonna be all over the Yetis upperdeckers.  Soft Spot really seemed unified last week and if they can stay on key this week, they’ll be hard to beat.  I wonder what they will serenade us with before the game this week… Pizza looks to stay spicy and throw that extra cheese but Good Co. will try to slice their way to victory.    This is gonna be a good one folks. I’ll see you down there.

Field #2: Pete’s Candy Store vs. Black Betty (‘Stache)

When you ask for some pre-game banter, sometimes you get more than you bargained for.  The esteemed Commish Holland dropped the first bomb, directed at the self-proclaimed “greatest average player in the league” Coach Sam from Pete’s…“Thanks for Jake!” 

Of course, he’s referring to the lone Black Betty acquisition over the off-season, “Lumber” Jake Levine.  We all know Jake from his 2013 season in orange, as a member of the Pete’s squad.  Sometimes relationships just don’t last and unrequited love is a hard pill to swallow.  Jake told me “Black is the new orange!”

Hard to be so certain, though.  Apparently the rivalry has been a bit one-sided in recent years past?  Sam was quick to point out, “Somehow Pete’s has a winning record against the vastly superior Black Betty.  When when we win, Camarra likes to say something to the effect of, “That’s your World Series; for us it’s just a game we have to play.”  Looks like some feelings are going to be felt in this one. 

See you fools out there.

Toodles,

The New New Additions
