THE TEAM - The Stats

The Warriors must really be afraid of us because once again they completely failed to show up for their game. This isn't a case of a team not having enough people, this is a case of nobody showing up. They probably stay out of Burbank altogether.

So instead of a boring game recap, we will have a boring look at our stats so far.

THE TEAM has 129 hits in 235 at-bats. That's a .549 average. We have hit 10 home runs and had 104 RBIs. We have hit 19 doubles and 8 triples. We have walked 41 times and struck out 14 times (You know who you are!).

The Batting Average Leaders are as follows. The number in parenthesis indicates how many games they have played.


Lou (6) .818
Victor (6) .737
Dave (5) .714


Jenny (4) .800
Destanie(6) .609
Sandy (5) .389

RBI Leaders


Peter (7) 19
Victor (6) 16
Lou (6) 12


Destanie (6) 14
CJ (7) 5
Jenny (4) 4


Lou - 5
Victor - 4
Dave - 2
Rick - 2
Destanie - 1
Jenny - 1
Kristin - 1
Peter - 1
Terrence - 1


Terrence - 2
Lou - 2
Victor - 2
Kristin - 1
Rick - 1

Home Runs

Peter - 4
Victor - 3
Lou - 2
Dave - 1

It would be nice if there were some pitching stats on here to acknowledge Chris and Terrence but I only have one clipboard.

Good job everyone

THE TEAM - The Moment it All Went Back to Hell

That was a tough loss. Our defense has been so strong all season but not last Sunday. We gave up 14 runs in two innings and couldn't make it back from that. It sucks a little extra because we found our groove and didn't allow any more runs after those 14 but we batted a season low .469 for the game so bitter defeat was ours to choke on.

That means we are 6-2 overall and 2-1 in the second half of the season. I tried to look and see what the Riverside Cafe 86ers record was but the Burbank website was showing us Women's Fastpitch standings from Fall 2009. What bunch of idiots. So we get to guess whether or not our post season championship fantasy went straight to hell on Sunday.

A scoop of ice cream in a Blue Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Chris who went 3 for 3 with 4 RBIs. In one game he added 156 points to his batting average. He also made two sweet plays for outs at home plate.

A scoop of ice cream in a Pink Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Kristin. She went 1 for 2 but found the patience to draw her first two walks of the season and had no strikeouts.

Overall it was a tough loss. And now we don't even know if anybody is going to turn in the enrollment package for fall season.

THE TEAM offical winning season

That was our sixth win of the season so even if we mail it in and tank our last three games we will have our third straight winning season. Yes!

It was nice to beat the Jensen Warriors. It would have been a little sweeter if that horrible little tub of goo that they had for a pitcher was there. My hope is that they kicked her off the team for being an inappropriate pain the a**. Or that she is dead (OK, perhaps that's a little strong. I just hope that she isn't somewhere thinking that they could have beat us if she was there.)

But enough about those clowns. Let's talk about THE TEAM. THE TEAM scored 12 runs. We batted .516 with a home run and 8 walks. THE TEAM defense has been pretty tight this season. We allowed only 4 runs this week. The only time we have allowed a team to score in the double digits was the one time that Chris and Terrence were not there to pitch. Good job THE TEAM!!!

As far as the scoop of ice cream goes, I was doing some math. If we have ten games and there are two scoops a game, that means there are 20 scoops of ice cream to be awarded throughout the season. There are only 15 people on THE TEAM and two of them have played zero games. That means a player can win twice so all of that coarse language was never necessary. Although "screw you Victor" can still stand for so many other reasons.

Speaking of Victor, he went 3 for 3 with 3 doubles and 2 RBIs. He is batting .727 for the season now. But screw you Victor (I knew that would come in handy) The scoop of ice cream in the Blue Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Peter who went 2 for 2 with a walk, a home run and 5 RBIs. Peter is leading THE TEAM with 19 RBIs on the season.

A scoop if ice cream in a Pink Milton Bradley mini-helmet goes to Destanie who went 3 for 3 with a walk and raised her season average to .609. Share the ice cream with Victor please.

We got hosed with a two out inning in the first but it just didn't matter. THE TEAM was focused and would not be stopped. Let's keep this train rolling to an H League Championship.
