Last Week's Results


Week 17- RECAP

Tue, Aug 19, 2014

If you love Dick Cakes, then you’ll loooooove our recaps!


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

Winnie was hungry for supple pink flesh

I watched a bit of this game from under the tree on field 1 and it looked really weird.  It seemed as though the game was just one continuous play with both teams throwing the ball around to no one in particular, and everyone else just running around the bases until they got home.  In my head it was like the mad hatter’s tea party set to the Benny Hill theme song.

The Yetis would strike first, going up 8-1 in the early innings, but the Pinks would storm back and hit them in their Soft Spots repeatedly, over and over. 23 times to be precise.  A lot of hot plays from the Pinks, including KT hitting a bomb over Toolin’s head. I guess he though the tide was coming in, but it was goin’ out in a hurry!  Kevin Clark pounded a pair of Pizza’s pepperoni pies out of the park (that’s a lot of P)Allen went berserker, hitting for the cycle, scoring 5 runs, and placing 9 RBI’s gently in his pocket.

The Pinks bid Matt Herman a sweet adieu and would like to thank Turkey (the country, not the nest) for lending him back to them for yet another summer fling. Your the best, Matty. Thanks for helping carry the load. Teşekkür ederim.

( Soft Spot: 11 / Good Co: 24 )


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

Hands down the cutest couple in the league (Sorry Wally/Stacy)

Oh boyyy. Turkey’s didn’t send me any stats so I’m going to have to go from my sharp as a tack memory.  First off, I’d like to thank 3/4’s of the Boys of Summer (Shafer you’re the missing quarter, just like my nut) for being the gentle men that they are and paying up on a long overdue beer tab. They brought me 36 of the 47 beers that they owe me.  I believe it was Jake who said “no fucking way we’re going to pay for another one of Shafer’s tabs!” 

The Game was fun, except for 1 or 2 innings where we were in the field for what felt like 2 hours.  I think the Turks battered around 7 times during those 2 innings, but they were all singles.  That’s right, we held the Mighty Thanksgiving Birds to 0 homeruns.

Jake had like 18 errors at short.  JL went 0-fer on the day, including an AB where I landed one of my longest pauses pitches for a strike that JL just watched cross the plate, then he complained that it was a “little low” (it was a great call Levine). I also threw my first glove hand pitch of the season and nailed Jake with a strike. Levine just stood there and called a “no-pitch” (horrible call)

Markow was all over the outfield, robbing hits and goosing people in the BK Bowl game.  Mitch was also 0-fer on the day (from what i remember) and before every AB would politely ask me not to throw him any high pitches.  After the game he also squared off with me at the pitchers mound and knocked the beer out of my hand.  I mean, you just won Mitch, no need to get dirt in my beer.

Jordan robbed me of several hits (not the strikeout, though. I robbed myself on that one) including a diving stab that made me very upset.  Cujo played a great first base, even though Turkey’s SS made him bite part of his tongue off coming hard into first.  If that wasn’t bad enough, she also stepped on his foot the very next play when he tagged her on a sweet DP (double play, get your minds out of the gutter).  I’m not sure where the Nesters got all of their runs because I can’t seem to remember them crossing the plate at all, but the final score was recorded at 82-75.

( Turkey’s Nest: 82 / Clemerica: 75 )

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

If you never thought you would see Joe eat a fondant dick, you were wrong.Pete Hoffman

As it turns out, having your bachelor party the night before a game does a Godsy good. Right off the bat (groan), he had a gigantic 2 run homer and went 3-5 for the day. Keep that one-hour of sleep regimen going, Godsy!

By the 4th inning, the Bowlers had a comfortable lead of 7-1, but the Gibson rallied. Todd showcased his trademark rip up center field (which he repeated x3 throughout the game). And I’m assuming fellow contributors included Will (w/ 3 hits for the day) and A-Dos “Duke of Doubles” who informed me he “Banged out 4 hits to take over the team lead in doubles with aggressive base running, I RULE”. Combined with some suspect Bowler defense, The Gibson closed in to make the score 7-5.

Speaking of defense, the Gibson’s was particularly solid. Pitcher Alan caught a rocket off of Joe Godsy’s grunting bat for an out and gobbled a scorching ground ball for a 1-6-3 double play. New addition Sam Warden also held it down at 2nd base (go on, girl!).

However, by the 7th inning the Bowlers dug their defense out of the gutter (groan) and tacked on a few more hits to make it 11-6.

Gibber Jose made things interesting in the top of the 8th inning by hitting his first homer of the season when he crushed a bomb over Jay Silver’s head to make it a 3 run game . But, when the Bowlers had their at bat, Mike Olin, lead off hitter extraordinaire, iced the game with a perfectly placed liner down the third base line that rolled all the way to the street for an 2 run McCarren HR. Meanwhile, Pat Snajder and Jon Blank also had nice days at the plate, each having 3 hits.

The Gibson put up 2 more runs and an overall good effort, but in the end they got bowled over (groan).

Post match, both teams retired to the Gibson to celebrate Godsy’s safe return from his bachelor party with an amazing Boo Cake!

( Gibson: 8 / Brooklyn Bowl: 13 )


Field #1: Reel2Reel vs. RBar (Shortz)

“Rjkfgjrks;jgri;jgijioegearm[iv[eirtpwo!” And you can quote me.

With a week 2 win over R Bar and words of encouragement from Cindy Softball on my way to the field, I was in high(ish) hopes that this would be the game that we’d turn our misfortunes around and pull out a ‘W’.

And even with Merhaut hitting a 2 run triple to make it 2-1 in the 2nd, (and one more run score by R Bar in the 4th), it seemed we were still in there.

This guy.

Then (suprise) Bobby happened. One of my favorite lefties to watch hit actually made me frown as he SMASHED a 2-run homerun. Although I got over my anger towards his good fortune fast (because, “lefties”), I was still perplexed that they now had a 5-run lead on us. Four straight 4 run innings from RBar later, including Mikey Black’s 2 triples and RBI, Matt’s perfect offense with 4 RBIs, a 3 run-homer by Bubbs, and a home run in the 7th…by Bubbs, R Bar extended lead to 11 to 2.

The Reelers, though uninjured (woohoo!), could not break the defensive wall of R Bar, especially from the middle of the infield- D-Lo, Matt and Bubbs. Our saving graces were Bedford Sean who hit a solo shot in the second and Phil, who was perfect at the plate, going 3-3 (yes, he was only up 3 times because we were that incapable of getting on base). Your reward is organizing a hitting clinic for the rest of us since we’ve only been able to put up 5 runs in the last 2 weeks.

( Reel2Reel: 2 / RBar: 19 )

Field #1: Black Betty vs. Pete’s Candy Store (Stache)

As we all know, Sad Sam was really sad last week. Would he be looking for love in all the wrong places this Sunday?  The (self-proclaimed) Bettyballers have been streaking towards the playoffs and looking to close out the season in typical Betty fashion.  Coming off 3 straight 1-run losses, Pete’s Candy Store were desperate for a reversal of fortune.

The early innings featured some back and forth defensive action and the game remained very close until the 3rd or 4th.  PCS rookie superstar, Megan, crushed an RBI double over the Betty outfield and fellow Candy Kid, Christine, added to the hit parade.  Former Pete, “Lumber” Jake Levine, kicked off the Betty scoring with a 3-run blast to (you guessed it) deep right field. Once that ice was broken, the rout was on.  Rookie Betty, Robyn Ziegler, had a big 2 RBI hit in the 6th and Aiden Sleeper chipped in with a homer.

My intent was to fulfill my journalistic duties and sit down to watch all the action in this contest.  Instead, I spent my time entertaining the lovely Camarra girls.  I made a very good target for squirt gun assaults (from guns that I graciously filled for my attacker) and made sure that watermelon pieces were available on command.  I was able to see their father tagging up from 2nd base on a deep fly ball, which was pretty impressive…but not impressive enough to make the highlight report from “Green Light” Kevin Belz.  

Look out for Betty v. Good Co next Sunday, which has mild playoff implications and major statement value.  Looking at the schedule, it appears that Pete’s will be playing a split-squad game at 1pm against both the Teacher’s and Soft Spot?  Commish?  Whichever team they play, Blues Clues wants everyone to come to Matt Abbott’s “retirement party”  at Bar Below Rye after WSL play ends this coming Sunday.  Consider it the end of the (regular) season bash!

( Black Betty: 19 / Pete’s: 8 )


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

Occupying the late slot were 3 Kings and the Loggers. Both squads have been playing a much better brand of softball in recent weeks, after both suffered some slump-age through the month of July.  Neither team was particularly stoked to be playing a 5pm game, with a combined 1-5 record in at that time.

With very little chance this game could actually have any effect on the Fashion South division title, it seemed as if the Kings decided to take the day off…both literally and figuratively.  Missing 3/4 of the outfield and having to pick up a sub to catch, the Kings rolled out a patchwork squad that featured only 3 players in their normal positions.  It didn’t take long for the Loggers to take advantage of the “new-look” Kings, plating 3 quick runs in the top of the 1st.  3Ks would answer back with a 2 run bomb from Thomas Santoro in the bottom half, before their bats would go cold for a stretch.

The Loggers would continue to put up crooked numbers in every inning until the 7th.  Logger hurler Tony Basile hit for the cycle, utilizing the McCarren Park Field 1 obstacle course to stifle the 3Ks outfield.  Brains (3 hits & 3 runs), Steve Albert (3 hits & 3 RBIs) and Nelson Nunez (3 hits & a HR) all had big days at the plate.  The Lumberfolk were scoring at will and the game started to get ugly.

Down by 14 runs, the Kings fought to score 5 runs in the 6th inning and another 3 in the 7th to make a respectable gap.  Santoro added his 2nd homer of the day and Francesca hit her 2nd of the year.  3 Kings would add a few more, but never really threatened. Denis Bramley and Motown each had 4 hits on the day to round out the highlights.

Regardless of the outcome, 3 Kings will face off with AT United in week 18 for a “winner take all” game to decide the division.  The Loggers are pretty much locked into the 7th seed at this point and will be facing the winner of the aforementioned 3Ks/ATU match-up in the first round of the playoffs.  Those pesky lumberjacks just beat both these teams in the past 2 weeks, so I am sure they are tasting a first round playoff upset already.

( Loggers: 19 / 3 Kings: 12 )

Field #2: AT United vs. Turkey’s Teachers (WSL Superfan)

Like father, like son.

If I were to make a New York Post-like headline for this game it’d be “Teachers Walk of Shame”, because the Teacher’s walked 13 batters. Woweee….that’s gotta be a record. Is it a crime that it oddly turns me on?

You know what also had me hot under the collar of my sundress this Sunday? The Teachers turning a triple play at the start of the game when, “United had man on 1st and second….liner to right center was caught…runner on second left on contact….runner on first tagged up….both forced out at second.”. Haz himself still doesn’t know what happened. Oh, and also Mike “The Angry Man” Sill, who went 3-4 with a homer and 4 ribbies. Hey, Angry Man. Looking good. 😉

Even though I did make to this game, as soon as AT took the field, I started daydreaming about what my kids with John Condon would look like. By the time I decided that we’d have a boy named John Junior who loves the theater and later apple martinis, and a girl named Perstephanie who loves helping mom with the dishes and has a healthy obsession with One Direction, the game was over. I was hoping I’d get some highlights, but ATU sure does play hard to get. Makes a lady try that much harder.

( ATU: 21 / Teachers: 9 )
