WEEK 5 – PREVIEW

Fri, May 8, 2015

Who’s ready for this Sunday aka MOTHER’S DAY! This is your annual reminder to call your Moms, send some flowers or a scented candle, and eat some goddamn brunch…As long as it doesn’t conflict with your softball schedule.

11AM

Field #1: Loggers @ Clemerica ()

Yay!  Both of these squads got off the schneid last weekend!  The Loggers fought off the new-look Gibbys to earn their first victory of the young season, erasing an early 10 run deficit with some heavy-hitting from Jeff X and (new manager) Brian Pisanelli.  While no lead is ever safe when talking about the Loggers, the Battleship managed to hold on tight to a double digit advantage last Sunday against the Runaways.  It was the first time Breeze & Co held any significant lead on the year, despite all the preseason acquisition hype.

Look for Stryker to try to slow down (and possibly even pause) the dynamic Logger offense, while Bobby and Markow try to build on their new found Clemerican chemistry.  There are rumors of a possible return to the mound for Rowdy Tony Basille, which would make Sunday a fantastic lefty/lefty pitching match!   Lucky for one of these teams, they are going to finish the day on a 2 game winning streak Sunday!

Field #2: Turkey’s Teachers @ Roebling Sports Club (Shortz)

I want to rolling rock all knight and party every day

After years of avoiding each other, these two teams were set to face off last season…only to have the Teachers forfeit moments before game time because of a 24-esque mission.

In order for the Remys to win this Sunday, we cannot bank on the Teachers being a no show, nor can we “phone it in” after their 2-1 match up last week. We saw you from across the field; we were the ones with a Rolling Rock cooler bag full of beers. You were the ones keeping the newly talented 86ers to 2 measly runs.

You don’t fool us with your current record or by having nicest manager in the league, Haz. But we are ready for you. We’ll match your White Lightning pitcher with an equally sneaky Halling. We’ll continue drinking our beers out of a cooler bag that nobody will steal from because it says “Rolling Rock.” We’ll even heed some words of wisdom from the great Michael Scott. 

I’m coming off the IR to possibly make a contribution, so get ready for WAR!

1PM

Field #1: Berry Park @ Crown Vic 86ers ()

Last Sunday was a stressful one for both the 86ers and the Yetis.  The Crown Vic kids had their hands full with a suddenly relevant TNT squad and squeaked out a 2-1 win.  They managed a half dozen or so double plays to keep the runs off the board, but it’s still a mystery how they only scored 2.  Mayor Al Bizzy Buttah Bananas will be looking for more out of his 86er lineup, as they search for their 4th win of the year.

Berry Park had a more “normal” defensive battle with RSC, where both teams were also held to (much higher) single digit run totals.   They lost the contest, 8-9, but Steph, Zak and Toolan all swung the bats well.  The loss puts the Yetis in the rearview mirror of the Godsy North division leaders, so they’ll be looking to rebound from last week and get back on track.

Field #2: The Runaways @ Gibson (Shortz)

I have no clue when these two team faced off, but I do know they have identical records…For a few more days…Unless you tie…You should tie. Facebook has alerted me that MC Lyte is lurking around the Burg…at R BAR? This means one of two things- She’s either back to pull her team up from their cleat straps or she’s joining R Bar. The latter seems more exciting.

When I reached the Gibson about their chances against the former Candyfolk, they replied:

WE LOVE SHORTZ. WE LOVE THE WSL WEBSITE CREW. THEY MAKE US WANT TO BE A BETTER TEAM. WE MISS YOU SO MUCH”.

I think what they were trying to say was:

I’m not sure what it has to do with the game, but I am truly touched, Gibson. I love you, too. I still hope you tie.

3PM

Field #1: Impose @ The Bedford (Homer Wadsworth)

On Sunday, Impose plays The Bedford with both teams looking to rebound from losses. Both squads boast stellar defenses with some pop all throughout the lineup. The keys to this match-up will be who scores more runs in 9 innings.

Impose is sitting at .500, hoping this game is the beginning of a streak that will take them into 1st place in the South Joe Godsy Division. After a lackluster performance by the Imposers, Pete ‘my arms have always been this long’ Hoffman vowed to be even chiller on the mound as he casually flings balls towards home at the Bedford Bombers. His defense up the middle is tight with Derek and Palma flanking him on his left and right. I shoulda made this a poem. Don’t go middle on these folks, folks.

The Bedford is coming back after a late inning loss to the Betty and looking to redeem themselves on the former Bowlers. Expect a few lefties in the lineup like Steve, Phil and O’Malley to test Field 1’s inability to contain right field balls. The Bedford and Impose are both known for their defense,s but can softball just be about defense? Only if yer boring and think it’s your team’s ‘secret weapon’’…then go for it.

Field #2: Black Betty @ 3 Kings (Homer Wadsworth)

Over the past few years a new rivalry was born. It was a friendly, respectful rivalry, but a rivalry just the same. Maybe as RMMS once said ‘Best there is….Past present and future….oh yeahhhhh!’ Both teams knew the other team has the pop and the power but on any given Sunday, who knows who shows up and puts it on display. “It’s not a smorgasbord…..it’s the WSL!” I left out the ‘oh yeah’ on this one if you see where I’m going with this.

The last few seasons have gone the way of the Kings and the Betty’s are sent home licking their wounds saying they’ll come out better next week and bounce back against another team that’s never 3Kings.

TommyS has been hitting bombs and I really hope someone is keeping track of his Homers. He should expect a lot of balls this weekend. Just sayin. Nick “I’m too hot to handle…too cold to hold” Tomeo has been taken over managerial duties for the 3Kings and has gotten out of his team just what he’s looking for: power, wins and a reason to wear face paint.

For the Betty, ‘the tower of power, too sweet to be sour’, they come into this week’s contest with Steve “Where’s My Fucking Jersey?” Peralta back in uniform (hopefully). Who’s gonna miss this Mother’s Day match-up? Who had that conversation with their Mom about this Sunday? “HEY MA. IVE GOT A BIG GAME I GOTTA GO TO. WANNA COME AND I’LL DEDICATE MY WIN TO YOU AND BUY YOU DRINKS AT THE GIBSON? MAYBE WE CAN GO TO THE BEDFORD FOR BRUNCH?” I’m sure that’ll work.

Oh and here’s a rebuttal from Black Betty to 3K’s earlier wrestling “smack talk” video.

5PM

Field #1: AT United @ Enids (Shortz)

Enid’s has been ‘making it rain’ so far with their 4-0 record, but this Sunday could be a real battle for the perpetual semi finalists. On the field, ATU is fun and loud and drunk and well fed while the Pinks save that energy for the bar afterwards, playing fingers whilst topless. That on the field energy from ATU could prove unnerving, especially after 30 minutes of hearing Vinnie’s Vuvuzela solo.

So be careful it does not get under your skin, Ladies. Or…maybe you could bring that topless energy to the field. I don’t know if it would help your record or anything, but that would be a fun ass game to watch.

Might I make a suggestion

I‘ll have my binoculars out this week for Drew Toresco, who was narrowly inched out of the Week 4 WSLPOTW, despite Dom’s campaign and slight threats. He’s on our radar, Dom. Put away the battery acid.

Field #2: Turkey’s Nest @ R Bar (Homer Wadsworth)

Last season RBar’s hopes for a title were ended against the Nest on a Sunday morning in September. The gang hung out like motherfuckers after the game, shotgunning beers and really showing the league they are about softball…. and if that doesn’t work out, beer. Lots of it. Quickly & Copiously. The other side of the diamond knows this strategy and have always employed the use of beverages to rally, incite and escalate. It worked during the 2014 campaign and the Nesters rolled a ‘chip and everyone on the team got t-shirts saying so. I’m not saying they were totally drunk when they won. I just said beer was “involved”.

This year the Nest came out, won a few games and then lost to the powerful Pinks last weekend in what was a good contest for about 7 innings. The fact that they have to face Enid’s and then RBar two weekends in a row is unfortunate, but maybe they can sleep soundly with a win this Sunday.

The RBar squad hasn’t looked back since their opening day loss to the Pinks and have caught some stride since then, cleaning up teams easily with DLo, “I dont need a dash” winning POTW and BubbSpo on the hill moving around the rubber like a video game pitcher.

Will Jordan (ATJM) get all his All-Stars aligned?

Will Petey go 6 for 6 and score 7 runs, somehow?

Is there any better way to end a preview than with a few rhetorical questions?
