Week 9- Recap

Tue, Jun 4, 2013

Inter-league Week #1 is in the books! North Division: 4 wins. South Division: 4 wins. Talk about parity. Except for the season’s first shutout, every game was close and very competitive. Which division’s higher seeded teams fared better? Did the Turkey’s Nest right the ship? A+ or F- for the Teachers?  Who is still win-less? Did AT show they belong or did they poop the bed? Thankfully all the managers got back to us this week with great recaps and tidbits (thank you guys) so read all about it!


Field #1: R Bar vs. duckduck

lame ducks

The 11am game was a lesson for duckduck of how one bad inning can cost the game. Having troubles fielding a team, the nine ducks were a bit disheveled their first inning in the field, allowing Rbar to break out early with a seven run lead. Poor Lauck got straight-up robbed of a potential two-run home run to right field. The ducks chipped away with hitting efforts from Hogan and Marisa, but 9 defenders against such a strong offensive did not bode well for the ducks, who are now under .500. RBar had incredible pitching and definitely added a few names to the homerun leaderboard. Their defense was strong, and most important; they were able to field a full team with a last minute non-RBar substitution. On a funnier note: as I was taking my exhausted, hungover self back to Williamsburg from my enchanting evening at Mohegan Sun, I bumped right into a couple of members of RBar transferring trains in the city. This ominous encounter gave me the feeling we’d lost, but I asked anyway and they confirmed my suspicions. Sad as I was of my team’s demise, I did win two whole dollars at the roulette table!

( RBar: 13 / duckduck: 6 )

symbolic. but this really happened.

Field 2: Turkey’s Teachers vs. 2nd Chance
The Saloon must have crammed all night for this one because they showed up fresh as daisies for the early slotted game.  Defense and pitching reigned supreme. 86’ers Nat Murray pitched very well and held it down on the mound. His team’s defensive core is as solid as any, especially up the middle. Hot hand Luke showed that not only does he look like Superman but can leave his feet in a leap and bound with spectacular diving catch. Mallory also flashed some nifty leather with an over-the-shoulder catch. TNT’s Mike “The Angry Young Man” Sill had a solid pitching debut, except for that pesky 5-run first inning, he only allowed three runs the rest of the way.  Even with the Teacher’s Judd “The Studd” Winton going 2-4 and sun burnt 1B Kristen Wulff going 2-3 it was just not enough run support for the Educators to earn their second win of the season. They fall to 1-5 while Second Chance shows that they are no dummies. A+++ Al and Crew!
( Turkey’s Teachers: 5 / 2nd Chance: 8 )


Field 1: Brooklyn Bowl vs. Black Betty

The #3 seeds faced off in a what was supposed to be a classic match-up, but actually turned out to be a whimper. Due to all those dreaded summer weddings, injuries, alien abductions, plastic surgeries, and Super Dave throwing his back out from tossing kids all night (don’t ask), The Betty only started with 9 players. But no excuses came from the 6-time champs. They played poor defense and did not show their legendary clutch hitting.  Brooklyn Bowl just simply outplayed them, jumping to an early lead and playing solid defense to take this one. Although there was a minor threat of a Betty comeback in one of the later innings, Joe Godsy had an incredible all-out dive catch in left center to cement the victory. Camarra will have to come up with more than wrestling moves to motivate The Black next week as they hover one game over .500.
( Brooklyn Bowl: 12 /  Black Betty: 5 )

Field #2: Clemerica vs. Soft Spot 

“Youuu sunk my battleship”

Although I did warn the Yetis to refrain from making bets with the Battleship, somehow it didn’t jinx their success. The Yetis achieved a total shutout; there will be no gabagool sandwiches for Breezy, and extra helpings of pulled pork for Pizza to be delivered right to his doorstep. Clemerica’s team wasn’t only missing Breezy, but Markow and Wiggins too, preventing their depleted squad from administrating their usual late inning rally. The rejuvenated Yetis made zero errors throughout the game. Winnie made a butt load of plays in his early innings work at 3B whilst Nephew Pizza threw out a Clemerican from right field trying to stretch a single into a double. Winnie also killed it at the plate by going 2-2 with 3 walks (real men take walks), Josh went 4-5 and Pizza’s bionic back helped him get 3 hits and at least a couple of RBIs. Well done Yetis- here’s to hoping you find some consistency in the crazy mixed up world.  

( Soft Spot: 14 / Clemerica: 0 )



Field 1: Pete’s vs. AT Allstars
With most league observers having little faith in AT’s talent in this game, even to the point of Commish Holland betting Mickey Smiles 50 bucks that The Allstars were going to lose, (that might be illegal, AT has filed a complaint with the league officials, oh wait…never mind) the pressure was on. Jimmy Two Strikes was not available for the game so GBlack called himself out of the bullpen and onto the the mound to pitch a beauty. Keeping Pete’s most formidable hitters, Scott Kirby and Jake Levine at bay and top-notch defense, they turned two rally-ending double plays. Pete’s Matt pitched a solid game but did not receive enough run support from The Candy Store. A home run by AT’s Billy Jeanz late in the game put the nail in the coffin. Pete’s record goes to 5-2 and AT remains undefeated, as the naysayers have nay to say, for now. When asked what he would do with the $$ he won from the bet, Mickey…well, he just smiled. Our guess it will be used to fill the Drunk Tank. After the game, all was forgotten and Pete’s and AT (and don’t think we didn’t see you, Buttah) enjoyed the fantastic cold cut spread supplied by OG Vinny.
( AllStars: 13 / Pete’s: 5 )

Field #2: Gibson vs. Loggers

Rock out with your cock out, Grambo

Loggers finally got their victory!!! Since I love me some Loggers and Gibson gave me jack in content except for Grambo’s oh-so radical mesh camouflaged shorts, I’m passing the buck over to our latest Bill Shakespeare, Mr. Daniel Decker. Take it away!

The Loggers have struggled mightily since the retirement of Jesse “The Cat” Bates (meow), so Cap’n Brenner had to rely on the rookies, new acquisitions and his Ladies to get the win in the battle of the bottom, beating a winless Gibson squad by a score of 9-2.  The Loggers exhibited the perfect blend of stellar pitching, stalwart defense and timely hitting. Every member contributed, with an incredible 9 players contributing RBIs. Tony Toni Tone  provided his usual pinpoint accuracy on the mound and impenetrable defense by the Loggers infielders and outfielders stifled every fit and start Gibson could muster. The rebuilding has finally paid off with strong showings from Nelson “The Jet” Nunez and “Double D” Decker, but former AT All-star Brian “BB” Belluomini’s head first slide and diving snow cone catch stole the show, earning him the first coveted game ball of the season. Both ball clubs exhibited the type of sportsmanship you’d expect from 0-fers, but the Loggers exhibited a steely resolve and left week one of interleague play with the decisive victory. Week 9 against 2ndChance is sure to be a good one; stay tuned because the Loggers aren’t done.”

( Loggers: 9 / Gibson: 2 )


Field #1: Good Co vs. Spike Hill

When the drunken crowds weren’t routing for Good Company or against Spike Hill, they were going WILD routing for umpire Al Buttah, especially head groupie, Hot Hand Luke. If we had a WSL Fantasy Umpire League, he’d be the #1 draft-pick for his can-do attitude and umping by the book. One such instance was when the Amazing Stacy (I promise to think of a better nickname  for you) hit a double-turned-triple, only to be hit by the next hit and called out. Such a bummer, might I add. Shirtless Sam’s heckling was in mid-season form. After Drew smashed a ball over RF-er Kelly’s head for a homer, he said, “I’d say see ya later, but you are too far away (chest pump)”. Kelly’s reply, “Who the hell is that guy?” Oh sweet Spike Hill sophomore, that’s the infamous Shirtless Sam. Many a Good Co. homer was robbed by various members of Spike Hill. Notably Phil‘s over-the-should grab and Mike Powell’s full extension catch. After racking up nine runs, Spike Hill put their bats away to see if Good Company could play a little catch-up. As the Pink ladies started to close the gap, I thought to myself, “I pretty much have all the content I need. Doesn’t get more exciting than this.” I was wrong. No sooner had I finished my inner conversation, this happened.

After the plethora of hipster zombies infiltrated McCarren Park and sauntered across the field, Good Co. was infused with energy from the undead and pulled ahead 10-9.  Just like watching Game of Thrones, there could be no happy ending. The game soon turned into a “Pink Wedding” when Greg Todd finally lived up to his talented reputation and hit the 3-run shot in the bottom of the 8th.  As a winded GTodd returned to the dugout, Silverman patted his bum and whispered gently, “Welcome to the team”.

( Spike Hill: 13 / Good Co: 10 )

Field 2: Turkey’s Nest vs. 3 Kings

In what turned into the Game of the Week, 3 Kings showed up with the right stuff. With a boom box blasting hits like Queen’s “Fat Bottomed Girls” and the Joe Esposito classic “You’re The Best!”, the crowned ones finally pieced a complete game together by combining their scary offense with some great defense. 3K added to the league’s home-run leader board, with HRs by Joey, Billy, Tommy  Kosak and Jose. Both teams displayed incredible defense, with diving catches on both sides. When a zombie parade decided to walk right through the fields in the middle of an inning…screaming ensued, and threat were made to hit softballs at them. How dare they interrupted this great game! Down 1 run heading into the bottom of the 9th, the Kings got it done. Tommy Kosak tied it up by driving in Thomas “The Big L” Santoro with a solid base knock and then Billy Gruarin capped his 4 for 5 day with a chip shot into LCF to drive in Joe Tomeo!  The misery continues for The Nest as they spiral to 1-5, but at least with the fences down John Louis was able to hire fans to sit on the nearby benches and cheer him on as he dove/fell all over the outfield.

( 3 Kings: 13 / Turkey’s Nest: 12 )
