Week 8 – RECAP

Tue, Jun 10, 2014

The only thing hotter than the weather this Sunday was this guy…and it’s only going to get hotter. (The weather and the fashion)


Field #1: AT United vs. Turkey’s Nest (Shortz)

All a team needs to win on any given Sunday is to “make less errors”. Turkey’s Nest was that team.

Both teams made a few errors, but ATU’s came at a cost, as Turkey’s scored 5 and sunk their teeth into the boozeless United.

The sober squad responded with a 4 spot, but couldn’t repeat the offensive magic thereafter.

Nester Korny was 4-4 and Jake hit a 2 run oppo taco bomb to right. In the field, Holly and Andy Breving were matchy-matchy in the “diving stops” department. JL presided on the mound…sadly, without any of his trademark behind-the-back pitches or tight shorts.

Like a deep fryer on Thanksgiving, these Turkey’s are on FIRE.

( ATU – 9 / Turkey’s Nest – 13 )

Field #2: 3 Kings vs. Brooklyn Bowl (Stache)

The Brooklyn Bowl continues to call their shot, “first team to 9 wins!”  They may not always get there, but look out if they do!  Certainly the 3 Kings offense would be able to muster 9 runs after averaging 20+ on the season?  Perhaps the league leading Bowler defense would be up to the task?

3Ks took the early lead on a 2 run rocket blast from from Thomas Santoro in the 1st.  Adam Smilowitz and Francesca Romano added RBI hits over the next few innings, to give the Kings a 5-0 lead heading into the 5th.  Then Brooklyn Bowl hopped on the board with 2 runs after a barrage of base hits.  Led by homers from Christian Ver Halen and Chad Ostrom, coupled with some pitiful defense from the Kings, the Bowlers dropped a 7 spot to take a 4-run lead in the 6th…and, more importantly, score their coveted 9th run.  Despite the 9th run having already been scored and the game already having been decided, Thomas Santoro hit another 3 run bomb in the 8th inning to cut the lead to 1.  Palma Blank and Jeff Carroll were the stars of the game for the BB defense, holding the 3Ks to a season low 8 runs.

3Ks were searching for their first ever win against the Mendoza/Bowl franchise, but the Bowlers merely added the Kings to their list of teams they have beaten by a score of 9-8 instead…Gibson, Clemerica, 3 Kings … who’s next?

( 3 Kings – 8 / Brooklyn Bowl – 9 )


Field #1: Spike Hill vs. Black Betty (Stache)

Congrats on your annual coin flip victory, Michael O’Malley.  This was exactly the type of conspiracy fodder I was expecting and you could not have scripted it any better!

If you are a member of the WSL family or follow the league from afar, then you know we are working on 8 straight seasons of Black Betty or Spike Hill Championships.  As was reported in the preview, the New New Additions uncovered some rather telling photographs about this supposed “rivalry”.  Looks like we’ve all been duped by these 2 powerhouse clubs.

Camarra really had his squad working hard on their acting chops Sunday!  The sheer volume of theatrical miscues really drove the point home, especially Kevin Belz pulling a flawless Keystone Kop routine on a dribbler to the mound. Brilliant! A “drop” here and an “errant” throw there: next thing you know, Spike Hill is shutting out their “rival” by double digits. In an effort to make it look real, Lumber Jake Levine hit a triple off a dump truck and later homered to plate- the only 2 runs for the Bettys.  I can’t be certain, but I have a feeling SH bomber Alex Dubin may have tipped off Aiden from BB to set up a picnic beyond LF, in order to “rob” him of a few homers.  Genius!  A late “dust up” over Spike Hill’s lineup substitutions really drove home the allusion of “competitiion.”

Black Betty leading man Kevin Belz didn’t even try to hide the script after the game, when he had this to say,

“It was kind of a boring game and felt like when Rocky fought Thunderlips in Rocky III.  With the Hillians as Thunderlips; 3 Kings playing the role of Clubber Lang.  
Obviously, Apollo Creed is Clemerica….who would be Drago?  Oh right: RBar.”

( Spike Hill- 17 / Black Betty – 2 )

Field #2: Reel2Reel vs. Good Co (Shortz)

No actual beer was wasted in the making of this picture

It was hot as heck when I got to field 2. My heart sank when a few Pinks were already hovering by the first base line bench (aka the nice shaded one). I pleaded with these gentlemen that I’d burst into flames unless we had that side, adding, “I am British pale”. As they agreed to my entreaty, an ominous feeling washed over me. I may’ve jinxed my team.

At the start of the game, the Pinks gave us the old 1-2-3 during our 1st ABs, then proceeded to bat around. Yep, I definitely jinxed my team.

I felt like an overheated Bill Murray in Groundhog Day, as I witnessed the same scenario occur inning after inning. Our only offensive solace (save a couple of walks) was from our breadwinner Shawn Andrew, who is arguably the least healthy player on the team and still managing to carry us. We also had a couple of would-be homers totally robbed by Shirtless Sam and my girl 10-ifer.

I don’t want to say things like “offensive onslaught” or “Battle of Shiloh”, so I’ll say we selflessly helped Good Co. up their batting averages, and improved HR board status to Allen Boseman, Tommy Talty and Cap’n Calfs.

Speaking of Cap’n Calfs

At some point on our epic beat down, I retreated to the shade to reapply my SPF 1000 for the umpteenth time. I started hearing various whistles and cat calls towards the game, “looking hot, Cap’n Calfs!” “Sexy Shirt!”. I finally turned to head back to the game and exclaimed, Cap’n Calfs, oh my god the shirt!” The memories swirled back to month’s prior, when I gave Cap’n Calfs that shirt for his birthday, never imagining I’d see it again. I imagined wrong. It was glorious…until he hit a homer and the novelty wore off.

We stopped keeping score after the 6th inning, and hope to regroup for next week’s match up.

Did I mention it was hot?

( Reel2Reel – 4 / Good Co – 24 )


Field #1: Crown Vic 86ers vs. Pete’s (Shortz)

In celebration, Pete’s ate themselves

Kudos to Pete’s for securing their seats at the WSL .500 Club- we’ve been expecting you.

The beloved 86ers tried their hand at dominating, but alas, it was a close game until Pete’s ultimately pulled their candy train out of the station.

As for Pete’s, I’ll give you the sugarcoated version of events. Matty rocked it on the mound (I think), and many “Vic” hits were robbed at SS by Max (I think) and at 3B by Mike Gembecki (I think).

A fabulous hitting display from the 86ers!

Dave Osbourne grand slammed to right center, Filthy Jeff went 3-5, Nat and Kate had a couple of hits each, and Mayor Buttah himself hit the game tying single in the top of the 8th.

Pretty sweet, right?

Pete’s didn’t think so, shouting “we’re the ones who get the sweet hits”, and immediately answered back offensively. Mike Gembecki hit a tater and Coach Sam secured the go ahead RBI. The candy high increased and the poor 86ers just couldn’t catch a break in the field (or at the plate).

The Commish deigned to ump this one and had this to say:

Honestly. They were the nicest teams I ever met. Neither yelled at each other, didn’t yell at me, it was almost like we should have been singing kumbayah while roasting marshmallows at sleep away camp.

That was ICE cold, H. Al and Sam– are y’all gonna let Holland deliberately trash talk you?

( 86ers – 10 / Pete’s – 15 )

Field #2: Rbar vs. Soft Spot (Stryker)

The ol’ switcharoo

What a defensive battle this was as these two Monsters of Rock faced off in the afternoon slot.  Pizza was serving up saucy pie after saucy pie, holding the mighty bums to 7 runs and 0 dingers.  A mighty feat for an aging veteran of the league. There was no Soft Spot in the Yeti’s D this week, holding RBar to 13 hits on the day, six of which came from Sam and Matt.  But the Bums wouldn’t be outdone in the defensive category and would get strong play on the mound from Teddy and Ron, who held the Yetis to a measly 4 runs.

RBar bummer Matt was playing unconscious at SS, turning 3 double plays and making about 35 outs total (i think he was throwing people out in the other game in between innings).  The Bums got a pair of RBI’s each from Jay, DLo, and Sam and were up by two going into the 7th when Soft Spot almost pulled off a comeback, but was foiled at the plate by a *cough* close play.  Zak told me that he is bringing Toolan and Clemente to the driving range to convince some guys to give them “hats for bats”.

Maybe JL can tag a long with them. I heard he went 0-fer all day (that’s two different leagues too, folks) I think that might be a first for a WSL player.  I also saw Shaffer at the field, his mustache was looking full and majestic, much better than Stache’s.

( RBar – 7 / Soft Spot – 4 )


Field #1: Loggers vs. Gibson (Stryker)

Is that your new mascot or are you just happy to see me?

The entire league, nay the entire WORLD had their eyes on this game. McCarren park was at maximum capacity as everyone drooled over the possibility of witnessing the Gibbers elusive ‘W’. Then the Loggers started hot crossing 16 people over home platter in the first 2 innings.

The Gibbers would chip away at the lead all day, but Mr. X and a few other not-so-familiar-jersey-less-faces just kept hitting monster moon shots all over the place, including one that cleared Aaron from Soft Spot’s baby carriage, and the other tattooed the hot dog lady’s umbrella. Hot Dog Lady didn’t bat an eye as everyone around her scattered, I think she practices voodoo. The Gibson kept themselves in it for as long as they could, with Dave “Chicago” Boston getting 3 ribbies and another solid outing from Alec “no stress” Strasser batting 4-4. The Gibbers capped a 7-run rally in the fifth with a 3-run laser from A-Dos up center field that closed the gap to single digits, but the Loggers wood would prove too strong.

Tony got a homer and 6 RBI’s, Craig “nothing’s too high” Heitzezman got a homer and a triple, Saris and sophomore Logger Nelson “ha-ha” Nunez also cleared all 4 bags. When reached for comment about all the long balls in this one, the Loggers simply stated, “We don’t always hit home runs”. Truer words were never said. We’ll keep rooting for ya Gibbers, just don’t let that win be against Clems.

( Loggers – 26 / Gibson – 12 )

Field #2: Clems vs. Turkey’s Teachers (Stryker)

The Teacher’s troubled season continued this week, as they faced off against a …..motivated Battleship.  A pretty boring game overall, with only a few highlights worth mentioning.  The Teachers would get a pair of dingers from their new additions Jason Perez and Cesar Guzman.  Clem’s MVP was definately DMarxx, who had a breakout game going 2 for 3 with a walk and 2 RBIs, and who always gets props for having to catch my awful pitches every game.

Markow blew an easy double play in the middle innings when I fielded a dribbler back to the mound. He was yelling at me SO LOUD “EASY!! EASY!!” that i ended up whipping it into the outfield. C’mon Markow, you’re better than that.

I also started to come out of my hitting slump with 2 singles in my first two AB’s, so of course I got fancy and tried to go oppo the next time.  This resulted in a real pooper right back to the pitcher.  I showed absolutely 0 hustle and immediately walked back to the dugout and my warm margarita.  Everyone was yelling at me but I guess I blocked it out (i have become good at that over the years in this league).  Then I looked up and saw Ump Zak staring at me with his hands up in confusion.  It was then I realized there was someone on first and only one out.  Double play, inning over.

As punishment, Breeze moved me to first base (because he knows i hate playing the field more than i hate sitting the bench).  Cujo would come in to pitch and immediately load the bases.  Breeze then asked me if I learned my lesson, and I asked him if he learned his.  We got out of the inning and would go on to win. Coach Haz is having everyone’s short term memories wiped before the second half of the season starts next week.  At least its their last week of classes, so they’ll be looking get their heads out of the books and onto the field.

( Teachers – 9 / Clemerica – 22 )

Mascul-out! For those tough stains!
