Week 4 – RECAP

Tue, May 6, 2014

If you actually managed to make it to the park this weekend, kudos to you! Once getting through all the city wide traffic due to the 5 boro bike race, oh!  It was apparently recycling day at McCarren too that blocked off most of the surrounding streets!

Hey kiddies! Have you ever been fondled by a recycling bin with arms? Well, let me show you the 3 R’s and the big D.

 

Field #1: Spike Hill vs. AT United (Decker)

Spike Hill managed to escape with a 12-8 victory against AT United in a game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicates.  When pressed for details after the game, WSL Website Crew cohort Mo noted, “meh, we hit a bunch of home runs and I made a sick double play.” AT United SS Petemo was equally “enthusiastic” noting that “AT played an OK game…a dog ran on the field at some point.”

On the offensive end, Spike Hill was led by Alex Dubin’s monstrous 3-run homerun over the third base bench on field 2, O’Malley’s less monstrous 2-run shot to right field and Doug Hogan, who was a homerun shy of the cycle.  They also played excellent defense led by Leo Otero, who saved several runs at 3B, and Eric Finnigan, who made a highlight reel catch in full stride behind the lamp post in right field.

AT United also played solid defensively, with the recently reinstated Drunk Tank once again roaming the outfield and Justin “Uber” Moench back at the hot corner. But they weren’t able to get their offense going until the end of the game, when it was a little too late.  AT had a chance, chasing 4 in the bottom of the 9th, but they weren’t able to recreate last week’s magic and took a loss to the reigning champs.

Field #2: Reel2Reel vs. 3 Kings (Shortz & ‘Stache)

This sums up Reeler2Reel’s defense.

I see London, I see France; I see Reel2Reel’s underpants. That’s right, the once omnipotent Reelers are still picking underwear out of their butts after receiving a royal wedgie from 3 Kings.

Here’s a video of me (totally not being a sore loser) discussing the match with my esteemed colleague, Stache.

Field #1: Crown Vic 86ers vs. Loggers (Decker)

The whole crew

The Loggers suffered another close loss on Sunday when they fell at the hands of the Mayor and his 86ers 15-13 in a game honoring the final season of Logger legend Mike Saris.

The 86ers started the game with only 10 players, but that was all they’d need to stave off the frisky Loggers. 1st baseman Cue Ball hit two bombs including a dagger in the top of the 9th that put Crown Vic up for good.  Soda Pop also provided two towering homeruns, despite having a hole in the seat of his pants that led to some classic Brenner heckling, and Mikey Mara went 3-5 with 3 runs scored.

The Loggers played a great all around game, with 8 players providing RBIs and very few defensive miscues. Crash crushed another deep homerun to left-center and rookie Shimmy Shamkin had a clutch 2-rbi single to tie the game in the 8th.  Everyone got in the action, but it wasn’t in the cards for the Loggers on this beautiful Sunday.

In a sign of true sportsmanship, the Loggers and the 86ers headed to the Ale House after the game where, as far as I can remember, Shatterack and the rest of the Loggers gave Saris one hell of a going away party.  Mike Saris, you and your ‘splovies will be missed.

Field #2: R Bar vs. Turkey’s Teachers (Stryker)

The Teachers do win for most adorable fan! Woof

The Teachers knew they were in trouble when even the substitutes were calling in sick for this epic after-school detention face-off.  They would end up playing with nine for the first few innings and went down hard and fast.  The Bums have seen the detention room before and were prepared for battle.  Seemingly at full strength compared to last week, R Bar showed why they deserve to be tied for first in the Joe Godsy North division with Spike Hill.

The students would be the teachers this day as they showed TNT how to score runs and score a lot of them.  The teachers were looking to shave some points off the Bums for not showing their work but the R Bar-ers were ready and carried the two’s and wrote the equations on the back of their game book.  Kristen “Howlin” Wulf was a bright spot for the teachers, playing a solid hot corner and getting a couple of hits and a ribbie. In a small bit of good fortune, the Turkeys did receive their 10th teacher in the form of the one and only Stache who went 4 for 4 on the day, (Way to represent the new-news, brah!)Manager Haz has promised to make some serious changes in the teachers tenures making sure they field a full team from here on out. All R Bar in this one, folks, as the Bums taught a lesson or two of their own.

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

Remember when I said Turkey’s Nest had a ridiculously high runs scored going into week 4? Boy did they pile more on as they “McCarren hopped” all over Black Betty.

JB$’s skimpy spring ensemble didn’t disappoint…nor distract the Turkey’s since they kept the Betty’s in the ballpark all game. The Nesters, on the other hand, unleashed an offensive onslaught, including a glorious home run from former “Good Mood Food” Arby’s pitchman Andrew Breving.

What kind of a nickname is that? The kind you get when you do stuff like this:

To the Bettys’ dismay, the Nest also played excellent D, when not one but TWO Commissioner tag outs occurred at home plate.

The first was at the hands of Chuck “Shafer’s outfield stand-in” Divak in the left-center field, throwing a laser to home plate cutting down Holland 10 feet from the promised land. The next Betty rally crusher was thanks to a Boys of Summer relay from JL to Jake, robbing Camarra of a homerun and a Betty comeback.

Who was this risk-taking 3rd base coach, you ask? Non other than Nice Guy Kevin, who was too nice to deprive the Betty’ of scoring opportunities. Incapable of grimacing over the misfortune, he both times announced with a smile, “I did that! I totally sent him!” (And he never coached 3rd base again).

The real takeaway from this Betty beat down is that Turkey’s Nest is an offensive powerhouse; if you want to win, y’all better back dat ass up.

IN YOUR FACE, DISCO!

But it wasn’t all smiles for the Nesters on Sunday.

With his shades in his hand and a single trickling tear, a crestfallen Disco had this to say, JB$ won the sunglasses stand-off with a pair of red frames and sunburst reflector lenses–like a punk rock Sally Jesse Rafael.”

Field #2: Good Co vs. Brooklyn Bowl (Stache)

One run games are all the rage these days! Brooklyn Bowl entered their matchup with Good Co having survived a couple of 9-8 nail-biters in a row.  On the other hand, the Pinks were coming off a tough loss to PCS in week 3 and looking to get back to .500 on the season.  This one had all the makings of a real barnburner and it did not disappoint.

Defense and pitching seemed to be the topic of discussion following the game.  Consensus was that Drew and Jen 10 were flashing some sick leather up the middle and stifling all the potential BKB rallies.  Despite their best effort, they couldn’t keep the Bowlers down entirely. Derek Evers led the BB attack with a perfect 4-4 day at the plate & 3 RBIs, while Billy Reilly added 3 hits of his own.
The Pink bats were fueled by timely production from EJ & Wally, coupled with a solo homer from Tommy.  Adding more fuel to that fire, the Bowl apparently had some outs taken off the board on a few disputed flat/illegal pitch calls on batted balls in play.  Good Co used those extra swings to tack on a few runs, which may have been the difference in the game.  After a half dozen lead changes, this one eventually ended at 9-8 on another fine defensive play by Drew, with the tying run stranded on third for Brooklyn Bowl.  Both squads left the field on Sunday sitting at 2-2 in the standings and then sitting on nearby bar stools at the Gibson.  Win or lose, the beers will be cold somewhere!

5PM

Field #1: Soft Spot vs. Gibson (Stache)

In the spirit of the prior day’s Kentucky Derby, these two mudders endured some untimely rain and wind to close out the day on Field 1.  The Gibson galloped out to an early 3-run lead over the sluggish Yetis, led by homers from “New Guys” Joe & Greg.  The Gibby Phillies, Ado and LA, did their best to curb a Soft Spot comeback with some gritty defense.  Alas, the self-described “beautiful hitting” of  James “The Crusher” Toolan, Steph and John “Hobbled Italian Stallion” Clemente (who comes up with these nicknames, Zak?) led the Yetis down the homestretch and they never looked back!
The final tally was 14-7 in favor of the Sasquatch, but that wasn’t the whole story.  The true highlight of the game was when a small child rode his trusty steed (bicycle) across the finish line (outfield) to the only real victory (not really) of the day, as the sun finally shone down on the park.  The moment was enjoyed by all parties and giggles could be heard resounding through the respective dugouts.  Rejoice!

( Soft Spot 14 / Gibson 7 )

Field #2: Pete’s vs. Clemerica (Styrker)

Along with the game, Pete’s also hands down won the Michael Jackson dance contest this week. Thanks for playing!

Both teams were short some key players this week but unfortunately only one showed it.  Besides Markow and a few other starters, Clem’s was also missing their 1st, 2nd, and 3rd string pitchers (Breeze sent me upstate to a backwoods back to basics softball camp because I’m apparently only hitting .250).  Sam who was also missing some stripers from the candy crew, but didn’t seem to feel the loss (because they won).  The Battleship’s defenses were nonexistent as the Shop dropped all sorts of sweet treats all over the field.  The Clemericans couldn’t swallow up all of the sugary snacks resulting in many many errors and possibly diabetes.  A few bright spots for Clem’s in an otherwise dreary day were Tim Splinter robbing Pete’s of a grab slam with a sweet grab and all around solid play from deckswabber Ty at the hot corner.  The dispensers of cavity filled goodness would prove to be too much for the Clemericans teeth this day as they rolled over the Ship and beat us pretty handily.  A big shout out to Clemerican HotSun who swabbed her last deck for the Battleship as she heads back to that wonderful island in the Pacific she calls home.  Wish we could have sent you off with a win!

( Pete’s 18 / Clemerica 11 )

That’s all folks!

Toodles,
