Week 10 – PREVIEW

Fri, Jun 12, 2015

Who’s ready to take a break from scheduling Tinder “dates” to swipe right for our Week 10 Preview?

YOU ARE.

11AM

Field # 1: R Bar @ Turkey’s Teachers (Shortz)

Talk about a “David and Goliath” scenario!

The Bums have been terrorizing the league so far this season with their strength AND their strength (minus their run-ins with Enid’s and 3 Kings). They have the 2nd highest RF in the league and play with the intensity of 100 Sean Penns.

TNT on the other hand, have a RA of exactly 100 more than R Bar, but the Teachers ARE NOT AFRAID. They finally have a win notched onto Haz’s Big Bud. And with the backing of scary Shia LaBeouf, this could be a major upset (as long as they bring Jaime Contreras again…and Avi too- she sounds fun!). Just remember teachers, DO IT! (explosions) MAKE YOUR DREAMS COME TRUE!

A quick side note, R Bar has assigned a new team source to report on the games. Pressure is on, John (just kidding- the other sources in the league have set the bar so, so very low).

Field # 2: Black Betty @ The Runaways (Homer Wadsworth)

Like stealing candy from ourselves.

The Runaways haven’t been having the season they imagined since they left Pete’s and took all the best candy. It’s been many moons since their only win in week 1, but I’ve seen them do this summer slumber thing out of the gates only to wake up mid-season and start playing well again. A loss against the Remys could be attributed to the banana bread video that Shortz made for her team, but then wasn’t that Sam’s recipe? The mind games in this league. One minute you give someone a banana bread recipe, the next, you see it being used as propaganda online in video tutorial form.

The Betty’s have been rolling as of late and have been rumored to be missing a few players for this weekend’s game against long time rivals and JB$’s former team from the Bush 2 era, The Runaways. Newbie Kyle should be back for more action along with Aidan ‘Don’t Sleeper on Me’ who has morphed into a mid-season adrenaline injection or ibuprofen pill, (we’re talking about Black Betty here). The dude has a way of bringing some life and vitality to the staff right when the thermometer hits sandy red. H is rumored to be flying to the Far East to see if he can get a softball exchange program started for the league where we accept 20 Japanese players for 20 team nominated players from the WSL. What a great way to get rid of some assholes on your team and learn more about slow pitch softball in other countries! (if there is such a thing)

Expect Sam, Chad, Meg ‘Renewable Energy’ and The Runs to try and bring the bats early against the Betty pitching rookie phenom and for the new Betty additions to add some pop to the lineup late.

1PM

Field # 1: Roebling Sports Club @ Turkey’s Nest (Shortz)

Have some baked goods, Nesters…

Two playoff-worthy teams with not-so playoff worthy records battle at one hour past high noon.

My Suzy Homemaker approach to game watching paid off big last Sunday with a win against the Runs. So I’m going to try it again against these awesome clowns. Lemon Poppy Seed Bread is on the menu this weekend, so we have that good karma going for us. And we also have the good fortune of playing a bunch of rusty Nesters, who took a holiday from the WSL. During their break last week, ‘new homeowner’ Jordan either had his team running suicides or attending the Gov Ball.

The Nesters have been playing like the 2014 Red Sox this season, but the Remy’s know better than to sleep on the former champs. I suspect this game will be a tasty one to watch, and hopefully Disco and Manning will be there so I can bring the Rhapsody I swiped from United first class for them to sign!

Field # 2: Crown Vic 86ers @ AT United (Homer Wadsworth)Al Buttah has been Mayor of this league and in an unofficial capacity has been the ambassador of good will and a good listener to boot. His team has morphed into this sluggernaut of a team that one day hits a buncha dingers with Quiggs, QSMASH and Dylan McKay and then wins 2-1 against the Teachers with a walk off hit. What? Regardless, they feel pretty good about themselves at 5-3 and after a good win against the Loggers, see themselves as a well oiled machine about to roll up on your neighborhood.

ATU lost what looked like a pretty tight defense gem of a game against Impose. I’ve seen a few ATU games and the D is tight when the cast is right. PeteMo up the middle is in his element at SS chasing down bad hops and bloops in foul territory on the left AND right side. He’d play the outfield from SS if you let him. That said, they have a deep bench and players who can play in different positions to make up for GBlack’s flat pitching. I do love Flat Bastard. Pretty awesome.

3PM

Field # 1: Clemerica @ 3 Kings ()

Clemerica and Three Kings have been almost “natural” rivals since entering the league together years back. The franchises have seen some ebbs and flows, but have traditionally always played some spirited games regardless. The Kings always made a point to chant, “1…2…3…FUCK CLEM’S,” prior to the games in the early years. A few years back, Stryker, blasted back by calling us, “3 Queens” in print. Needless to say, it’s all been in good fun and we still always share some brisket and slaw after the game.

The Kings are on a 7 game winning streak, after outplaying R Bar last weekend. No doubt the 3Ks improved defense has been a huge difference over last season. The Clemericans have a 5 game winning streak of their own going, scoring 16+ runs per game over that stretch. The real question is whether their gloves can hold down the Kings high-powered offense for 9 innings?

To my knowledge, there has been no “3 Queens” talk heading up to this game and the “FUCK CLEM’S” chant retired many years ago. What we have left is 2 very hot teams facing off with a little more than bragging rights at stake. I would suggest you tune in on Sunday, as this will surely be a fun and exciting game!

Field # 2: Gibson @ The Bedford (Shortz)

The Bud could be for you, Gibson.

Interleague play brings The Bedford and the Gibbers together again. Last season, the Bedfordians pummeled the Gibson as if it was their usual meet up in the first round of the playoffs. This year, The Bedford is sitting pretty(ish) as second in the Godsy North. And although the Gibson is at the bottom of that same division, they’ve shown massive improvement this season and should be considered more of a threat than in years past.

Mo & Co will have to make an effort; Alex Sr. will have to take on a “less walky, more yardy” approach to his play.  Linder will have to store away her party slippers and actually show up (you’ve been missed, girl). And Doug will have to up his homer runs to 10 for this one if he doesn’t want to be seen as a total embarrassment. Otherwise, y’all will have the same look on your collective face as the mighty Kings did when they fell to The Gibson last season…when the Gibbers were less good.

Hey Ados– if your crew can pull this off, first round’s on me.

5PM

Field # 1: Enids @ Berry Park ()

Here we have a tale of 2 seasons. The challengers from Enid’s had been steamrolling through the 2015 season, until last week when they were bested in extra innings by The Bedford. Sitting at 5-2 now, they look to keep pace in the Fashion North division this Sunday against the Yetis. The traditionally high-powered offense of the Pinks has not been seen in quite some time, but they are certainly making up for it with the gloves. The Pinks are amongst the top teams in the league in runs against.

The home team Yetis from Berry Park, have lost 6 in a row. Their only win came in Week 1, against the Teachers. The Yetis have been struggling to put runs on the board, despite a very talented lineup. From what I hear, they have made a coaching change this week. It appears that Winston “Pops” Muentes will be taking the reins for the remainder of the year. I can’t imagine a better choice! Good luck Winnie!

Field # 2: Impose @ Loggers ()

Every Sunday I keep waiting for the Loggers to “click”. After a strong finish to the 2014 WSL season, they have just not been able to put it together this year. Perhaps the recent return of hurler, Tony Basille, wasn’t the answer. To my amazement, their offense has been almost nonexistent. Unfortunately for them, the defense has also been equally as bad.

Impose, on the other hand, has been steadily wrecking fools on the regular lately. In the last 3 weeks, they have outscored opponents 39-11. That’s borderline ridiculous in co-ed, recreational softball! Not exactly the team you want to run into when you’re struggling. The outlook is not so good for the Green Machine this week, but this is the WSL and…ANY GIVEN SUNDAY!
