Playoffs Elite 8 – PREVIEW

Thu, Sep 18, 2014

In lieu of an intro, I present premiere umpire Sam, as he explains why he should be elected WSL 2014 UMPIRE UMPIRE OF THE YEAR. You other umpires should be warned, he is on message here. We open the voting to all citizens of the WSL. Click the below image to vote for your favorite umpire (winner will be announced at the WSL End o’ Season Party). If you don’t want to be lost in the shuffle, umpires, I suggest you hit me up to produce your campaign video.

Field #1: Loggers @ Black Betty (Stryker)

I’m here for your teeth (and more), Stryker.

This exciting elite 8 matchup features two veteran teams that have been in the league since day 1. Both teams were on the brink of elimination last week but somehow managed to escape with the ‘W’. Was it luck or their vast experience in the league? Were they both just playing possum? Letting the other team feel all joyous and confident and then at the last minute crush their dreams like a bad father telling his son that Santa Claus doesn’t exist and the Tooth Fairy not only takes your lost tooth but also rapes you while you sleep (I never put another tooth under my pillow after that little talk). We’ll see how many times Belz ironically complains about bad umpiring during this one. Or perhaps Craig H, Jeff X and Brains will continue their hot stroking from last week and chop down the deep rooted hard wood of Black Betty ( I just turned myself on).

Will Mitch’s Mullet be in attendance to try and dull the axe blade of the mighty Loggers? Will I be drunk by the end of this game? Is it finally time for the Camarra’s offspring to finally get an AB? Will The Boys of Summer ever not be my favorite people in the league? Will Stache ever shave his stache and grow out his eyebrows and then forever more be known as Brows? All excellent (terrible) questions that may or may not be answered by the end of this game.

Field#2: Spike Hill @ Turkey’s Nest (Stache)

“I think a playoff showdown rematch may be on the horizon!” – Me 

After winning their 1st round playoff games by a combined 42 runs, you can understand why I made that statement in my Week 12 recap of the contest between Spike Hill and Turkey’s Nest. The Hillfolk put down Clemerica quickly and efficiently last Sunday, while the Nest took their time in humbling the 86ers. Both teams looked charged up for a deep playoff run, but one of them is going home this weekend.

In that Week 12 matchup, Spike Hill escaped with a narrow 10-8 victory over the Turkey’s. Defense was the catalyst in the win, which also seems to be an early theme in the 2014 WSL Playoffs. 7 of the Round 1 playoff winners held their opponent to 10 runs or less. I have a feeling that both squads will eclipse the 10-run plateau in Round 2, but I would be surprised if it were a laugher for either squad.

I imagine Stryker will be there to root on his Boys of Summer, blowing kisses and winking at Shafer uncontrollably. I’ll be there, fulfilling my journalistic duties. Will you be there? If so, bring snacks! Always bring snacks! 


Field #1: Soft Spot @ Good Co (Shortz)

Good Co’s 1st political endorsement.

And now…some Shortz-ly advice to both teams.

Yetis. Well done against AT not-so-United. This could be your year!

But I’m gonna get real. Maybe, you’ve gotten your groove back thanks to your patriotic pre-games, but let me warn you:

Do not get hypnotized by Cap’n Calves’ Calves. I repeat, DO NOT GET HYPNOTIZED BY CAP’N CALVES’ CALVES. I’m not kidding- you’ll turn to stone. Then you’ll strike out. Then he’ll hit 7 legit and 2 McCarren home runs. Then he’ll challenge you to a push up contest. Then you’ll lose (both the game and the push up contest). Oh, and I wouldn’t play the girl line on these Pink Ladies. They WILL hit it over your head (Toolan).

Good Co. Well done against Turkey’s those-who-can’t-Teachers. This could be your year!

But I’m gonna get real. Maybe you swept the Yetis this season, but let me warn you:

Do not collectively pound Absinthe (again) before the game. I repeat, DO NOT COLLECTIVELY POUND ABSINTHE (AGAIN) BEFORE THE GAME. You may have as many losses this season as the Yetis have visits to their actual sponsor (not many- BOOM!). And yes, you may have the President’s endorsement. But these are YETIS we’re talking about. They’ve appeared weak at various times of the season, only to tear it up when teams least expected it. Plus, they haven’t forgotten about the substitute reneging debacle of Week 17. Here’s to you not reneging this Sunday???

Field #2: Brooklyn Bowl @ R Bar (WSL SUPER FAN)

Newsflash! Brooklyn Bowl stalwart Olin heard to say “3Kings suck!” on Facebook. Will this provide the bulletin board material to push 3 Kings to a championship next year? Why am I even talking about 3 Kings in a preview of R Bar and Brooklyn Bowl? Did using a smiley face convey the tone that he was kidding? Why is Olin so mean to us ladies? Why????

Expect fans to be tuning in this week as R Bar tries to build on its impressive season by making its first trip to the Semifinals, while Brooklyn Bowl (nee Mendoza Line) seeks to recapture its past glory despite apparently being without newlywed, Joseph Godsy. I saw his ring ladies – it’s at least 2 carats (OMG!). Joseph is sadly away this week, learning that marriage isn’t all just holding hands (I loaned him this great book which I’ve read cover to cover).

The Bowlers will instead rely the mountain Pete Hoffman to do that thing he does where he pitches and he’s real tall. While Rich, Jay and Sam try to class it up to make up for Olin picking on the really nice girl from 3 Kings on the Facebook group. Slappy, Richie and all league superstar, home run champ and probably rookie of the year (does that exist?) will lead a hungry R Bar team that sees its destiny in the Semi Finals and beyond. One of two classic match ups in Joe Godsy conference this weekend – not to be missed.
