 Sunday was brutal for some, was it not?

 

11AM

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

Oh Teachers…Shia is going to be pissed.

TNT were off to a a good start, holding R Bar to 0 runs in the 1st. And even when the Bums scored 7 in the 3rd, they answered right back with 6 to keep the score relatively tied.

Then they got R Bar-ed. The Bums batted around, plating 9 and seizing control for the remainder of the game. Pete led the offensive charge by going 6 for 6, (apparently boosting his average to .710). Richie went 4 for 4 with 5 RBIs. Bobby Knapp contributed a HR only to be outdone by the invincible John R, who crushed 2 more dingers, for a team high total of 10 on the year.

Those stats would make it seem that the field was left in total Teacher carnage, but, this was the most offense TNT has produced in a game this season. 3B Cesar Guzman 4 for 5 at the plate 5 runs scored, DH Ron Esposito went 3 for 4 with 4 RBIs. Vince Perretti, was 4 for 4 with 2 RBIs, and “Jay” Ferrerri went 2 for 2 with 5 RBIs and 2 runs scored. Seriously, I’ve never seen Haz mention so many of his players in an email before.

Don’t worry Teachers, I’ll relay the message to Shia that although your efforts weren’t good enough to stay with R Bar, the second half of season looks less bleak….and to please refrain from spitting on you.

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

The former Candyfolk dreaming of candy greatness.

The Bettys were shorthanded this week against the former Candystore operators but took care of business early, shuttering the windows and throwing a bolt lock on their Sunday.

Rumor had it both teams were short which is no surprise considering it was an 11am game and was a beautiful beach day for anyone not playing.

Principal Pretto had two majestic bombs in the game as the Betty D was anchored by the experienced, and IMHO, one of the greater under appreciated pitchers in the league, Henri ‘Higher than a’ Falconi, who threw 9 innings and only allowed 5 runs to score. The Betty ladies had a few hits including ‘Black Widow’ RobynZ who started the big 2nd inning rally with 2 out with a single to get things cookin’.

The Runaways management had an emergency which prevented them from sending a write up and left this reporter to make up shit and say nice things about the team. The Runs is losing one of its stars in the form of Meg ‘Reneweable Energy’ Lyte is heading back to the left coast to help companies determine how wasteful they are.

Will she be back for playoffs? What’s up with this team? Honestly, I think pound for pound The Runaways are a good team but can’t seem to put a win together. How this works out is the team makes the playoffs (duh!) and becomes the 2015 WSL Cinderella team to beat.

Next week the Runaways face The Crown Vic and hope to put an end to this dismal losing streak. The Betty face ATU and GBlack (GGreen doesn’t work, so we’ll allow it) and with another 11am slot are hoping that the other team can field a team (for shame Week 10 ATU’ers; Petemo was candy crushed).

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

Signed by THE Jordan Heller.

I rolled up to field 1 with two loaves of Lemon Poppy Seed Bread in my satchel to test my winning formula of “being nice through baking to score wins”. As I set up my dope reclining camp chair (with foot rest), and watched the Nesters take the field with bellies partially full with baked goods, I was ready to witness a Remy two-peat of not losing.

We were off to a good start with 6 runs in the 2nd thanks to a couple of walks and timely hits from Shawn (4-5 with a HR), Babkow (3-4), Jake (4-4), Sandor (3-4), and newbie Justin (3/5 and nearly killed David on the mound) . Even with the might bats of J Disco (3/5 with a HR), newbie Karl (4-5 with a HR) and Canadians finest Bryan (3/4 on his first game back from injury) answering back, The Remys kept the lead. At one point, Jordan called for a base coach because they “could win this”. And with us up by 6 runs and me being a questionable human being, I started laughing with the slightest flutter of an evil cackle.

I shouldn’t have laughed. Or gone for a pee break. Because when I returned, the Nesters had somehow scored a touch down in the time I was gone. We were now down by 1 going in to the 9th. But we had the top of our lineup, and I had baked bread! Sadly neither worked out and the baked good streak was over.

But then Jordan autographed my Rhapsody magazine (and my chest) and all was right with the world.

Field # 2: Crown Vic 86ers @ AT United (Homer Wadsworth)

Where u at, ATU?

(DUMB DUMBS COULDN’T FIELD A TEAM- NO GAME!!!!!!!!)

 

3PM

Field # 1: Clemerica @ 3 Kings ()

Didn’t know Gallagher was a 3 Kings fan.

Not going to lie. I always look forward to this game against the Clemericans. It’s always been a little chippy, but more funny/fun than anything. Stryker is always up to something and Nick is rarely louder. Better than all of that, I know there will be post-game Breezy’s BBQ waiting at Clem’s.

The scoring kicked off quickly, as the Battleship plated a run in the top of the 1st inning. The Kings answered with 3 of their own in the bottom half, capped by a Jose Martinez RBI double. The Clams didn’t wait long to tie up the score on a Stryker HR in the very next frame. Unfortunately for Breeze & Co., that was the end of the day for their offense. Matty No Times and (I can’t believe I am saying this) the defensive-minded Kings violently slammed the door shut and blanked the Clemericans for the final 7 innings.

3Ks would tack on enough to earn a 9-3 victory and move to 8-1 on the season. The Battleship drops to 5-4 and are losing ground in the highly competitive Fashion North division. Next weeksthe Kings get the Pinks, in what should be a helluva game, and Clemerica looks to right the ship against the Teachers. Hopefully there will be some more BBQ after that game!

(Clemerica 3 /3 Kings 9)

Field # 2: Gibson @ The Bedford (Shortz)

Sorry Gibbers- no Gibson for you!

In the Battle of Bedford Ave., The Gibson was pummeled by their next-door neighbors.

The Gibson actually had the The Bedford on the ropes…for the first inning. But they then fell back into their habit of hitting the ball right into the Bedfordians gloves. The Bedford responded by plating 7 in the 3rd. Neither team scored more than 3 for the remainder of the game, but the 3rd inning damage had been done. Like in bowling- how a couple of innocent strikes can make a score so lopsided. Just ask Mo and O’Malley– they’re very good at bowling.

Speaking of the Bedford, my esteemed colleague, Homer Wadsworth, compares their recaps to that of an Emmys acceptance speech- and it is. So I’m going to choose my top 5 out of this weekly wealth of content, and let the readers at home know that everyone else on the team got their weekly shout out.

Metzl led off for the Bedfordians (after two inspiring ABs from O’Malley), going 3/3 with a HR shy of the cycle, which he promises to hit at his next AB or he’s relegated to the singles league. Silverman filled the 3 hole and shortstop like a boss, strutting around, hitting doubles, and taking extra bases with a flawless performance in the field (I’d be worried, Alex). Masiello was a monster at the plate, going 4/5 with what would’ve been a bomb had he not stopped at 3rd to take a cat nap. Kane Daddy “the best 9 hitter in the league” went 4/5 (again). And the ladies (aka as Mo, Kris and Linda) are tied for my #5. I’m told they danced (provocatively) between positions and combined for 7 hits and 4 runs.

It wasn’t all failure on the Gibson bench. Will continued to dominate with a 2-run homer on a 3/4 day, scoring 3 times and held a tight ship at SS (on our POTW radar). New addition Stephanie ‘no nickname yet’ went 3/4 with 1 RBI, smacking the crap out of the ball in her debut. David “The Glovner” Kovner went 3/4 with 1 RBI. And Capitan A-Dos contributed with 2 RBI on a 4/4 day.

The Gibson had tight defense, and great pitching from Alan Artale, but didn’t hit enough to get win #3. To add insult to injury, their coveted sponsor bar turned the Gibbers away due to a private event. Ouch.

Field # 1: Enids @ Berry Park ()

Life for a Yeti shouldn’t be so rough.

Another week and another matchup with a winning team. This Sunday, they faced a very determined Enid’s squad. The Pinks were coming off an extra-innings, heartbreaking loss to the Bedford and they were not looking to start any losing streaks.

Dom’s dandies sent 9 to the plate in the top of the 1st and plated 4 quick runs. Berry Park proved to be up for a fight, when recent Gibby defector, Dave Secia, homered in the bottom half to pull within 1. The teams would trade runs throughout the game, with the Pinks eventually taking an 11-9 lead into the 9th inning. They would tack on another 6 to that lead in the 9th and the Yetis just couldn’t answer, despite a Ryan McNeill (no relation) homer.

 Tommy homered twice, Mike V added one of his own and Captain Calves had a 4-hit day for Enid’s. Nephew Joey had 3 hits and gunned down a runner at home for the Yetis. The final tally was 17-11 in favor of the Pinks, which moves them to 6-2 on the year and they currently sit in 2nd place in the Fashion North.

The Berry Park squad fought valiantly under new manager, Winston “Pops” Muentes, despite missing some fellas named Zak, Toolan and Dietz. Next Sunday they get the Gibson, which may be an opportunity for a much-needed victory. Enid’s continues to pile up wins in 2015 and will face the red-hot Kings in Week 11. Should be a good one!

(Enids 17 / Berry Park 10)

Field # 2: Impose @ Loggers ()

Broken Timber. Broken Hearts.

TIMBER!!! LOOK OUT BELOW!!!!

The Loggers season is falling fast. They just ran into a gigantic chainsaw on Sunday and it wasn’t a Stihl. They were cut down at the root by the surging Impose squad with a final score of 30-7. Ouch.

It got ugly in the top of the 1st inning, to the tune of 7 runs and a full trip through the batting order for the Mendozas. Ben “Weapon” Weber had the big hit of the inning, a 2-out RBI single, and finished with a perfect 3-hit day. Mike Olin was 6 for 6 and scored 4 times. Adam Hoffman and Ryan Bort both had homers. Palma added 2 hits and 3 walks in the rout

Loggers Jeff X homered and Jay Mort had 3 hits in the losing effort for the Green Machine.

The only hope for the Lumberfolk now is that they can somehow salvage all these fallen trees and build something playoff-worthy in the 2nd half of the season. Impose, on the other hand, are scary good and play some lights out defense every single Sunday. Seems like they are going to have something to say about the WSL Championship this year.

(Impose 30 / Loggers 7)

 

WSL Player of the Week is…Karl France!

SPEECH!!!

Karl: I am truly humbled and honored to receive this honor. I am a newcomer to this league and am very happy to be a member. I like to thank my friends Andy Breving and Dan Schafer for helping me get here. And of course our fearless leader Jordan who stresses Gobble On at all costs.

1. What’s your inspiration for hitting home runs like you hit on Sunday?

Karl: I thought first What Would Shafer Do (WWSD) and then Jordan hit one earlier and stated “that is how it’s done”. Honestly, I just hit the ball hard.

2. We hear you’re a big deal in the Volleyball world. If you could pick 3 WSL-ers to coach in Volleyball, who would they be and why?

Karl: I have not seen a lot of the WSL athletes but I think #1 is R Bar’s Dani #12 has experience and has good hands. #2 Jake on Roebling with his combination of speed and height would make a great Right Side Hitter. #3 would be Jenn who filled in with Turkeys on Sunday or Palma #31 from Impose as I can train them to be great Liberos/Defensive Specialist.

3. Who you gonna call?

Karl: All the haters plus a couple of ladies 😉

4. What’s it like playing for the Founder, Editor and Chief of the world famous inflight magazine, Rhapsody- Jordan Heller?

Karl: Jordan is a great & selfless leader who really cares for his Turkeys. This has been a great experience.

5. What do you love the most about the WSL?

Karl: The WSL is a great place for friends to get together and compete. I love being part of this new family.
