No More Mister Nice Team - Game 6

I think we can make it official. THE TEAM is awesome. We won 21-3 to sweep Salem heat and improve to 4-2 on the season. We have never won 4 games in any season that THE TEAM has been alive. We did it because we are awesome. The errors were few and far between. We batted .525 this game with a .627 OBP. We had three double plays.

Lou went 3-3 with a grandslam. Victor made a great play in left and threw out the runner at second for a double play. Dave went 4-4 with 3 RBI and threw a runner out at home from centerfield. There were RBIs from Peter(3), Chris(2), Terrence(2), Destanie(2), and Sarah(1).

The VGITPOSA came down to two players. Sandy went 2 for 5 with 4 RBIs. That's a pretty strong day. Somebody told her that she had 5 RBIs. I told her she had 4 and the look she gave me said 'roid rage. I was thinking that player was on something but VGITPOSA goes to Chris. He went 2-2 with 2 RBIs but it was his pitching that got it done for THE TEAM. He walked only three and struck three out and held Salem Heat to only three runs. And he had a bad a** beard that screamed performance enhancers!

No More Mister Nice Team - Game 5 Recap

We lost, but we gave the Unicorns a run for their money! We were back 'n forth for the first 7 innings and then fell behind in the 8th inning. A pretty big improvement from the last time we played them when we got killed 20 something to nothing. Great stop by Destanie on 2nd base. The ball was moving so fast, I didn't even see it! Other great stops by Lou and Terrence, as well as everyone who played in the outfield.

On offense, everyone got some great hits in, and we were able to keep the runs coming in at a consistent rate. VGITPOSA goes to Peter for his homerun! We were awesome. The game ended 15-12 Unicorns. We lost, and that ranked us 3rd out of 6 teams. Not bad, The Team! We've come a long ways since the days when we were last.

No More Mister Nice Team - Game 4

This whole victory thing does not get old. Who knew!

The 86ers seemed like a nice group of people. They were obviously a patient bunch because their key to victory was to take pitches and wait for the runs to get walked in. That seems like a boring way to spend a Sunday but hey, good luck to those guys.

THE TEAM was hitting like crazy so the 23-13 victory was nice. They took their walks and scored some runs and we took swings and got the runs right back. We were awesome.

The VGITPOSA becomes a real chore when we play like that. Sarah had too many RBIs to count. Dave hit for the cycle. Leigh Anne and Meredith stayed awake in the outfield even though they never saw a singel ball come their way. (At least they had each other).

The VGITPOSA goes to Lou for hitting a grand slam and for gunning out the runner headed home for the last out of the game. Not an easy choice.

How did you end up on THE TEAM?
Through LeighAnne and Carrie. I work with them and asked if there was an available spot on the team.

Second Base, Third base, Outfield, Pitcher

Same as Kobe Bryants number for the Lakers.

If you really need it, yes.

No More Mister Nice Team - Game 3

This is like living in a alternate universe. THE TEAM is 2-1 and looking solid all around. In the whole history of THE TEAM we were 10-30 but after our win 17-7 win against the Jensen Warriors we are 12-31. OK that's still a horrible record but the point is that we are having fun and winning is more fun than losing.

There is the matter of the VGITPOSA. Peter had the complete game victory. Destanie scored every time she got on base. There were double plays. Leigh Anne voted for CJ for her consistent play and ability to make sure THE TEAM was able to get those double plays. I was thinking Meredith for all that hustle. Of course Peter brought cake...

Lets give the VGITPOSA to Leigh Anne for voting at all. God bless America.
