THE TEAM - Winter 12

THE TEAM split a doubleheader to finish the season 6-4. That first game against The Great Bambinos was like error porn but THE TEAM defense tightened up against The Fockers.

So there you go.

It always ends up being a quick skim over the details when there is a doubleheader. It's a lot of softball. Lou's Grand Slam certainly stands out. That and the hardcore error porn. Steamy!

Let's see what you did this season:

2 Sema played in 8 games. She batted .375 with 7 RBIs, 2 doubles, a triple and 3 walks for an OBP of .444. Sema came in with a lot to learn and she improved a lot throughout the season.

3 Lou played in 10 games. He lead THE TEAM with an .811 batting average. He had 28 RBIs with 6 Home Runs, 9 Doubles, 2 Triples and 6 walks. Lou's determination makes everybody play better.

8 Jad played in 8 games. She batted .333 with 2 RBIs, a Double and 9 walks for a .533 OBP. She also didn't take any shit from anybody

10 Melody played in 5 games. What a 5 games though! She batted .727 with 8 RBIs, 1 Double, 1 Triple and 6 walks. That's an OBP of .824 on top being great at second base. Her injury was a terrible loss for THE TEAM

15 Dora played in 9 games. She batted .400 with 5 RBIs, 4 Doubles and 1 walk. Dirty Dora is there to play. She is all hustle. She also never struck out and didn't walk until the 9th game of the season.

16 Beth played in 10 games. She batted .217 with 6 RBIs and 6 walks for an OBP of .379. She did a great job at second base after Melody did whatever the hell she did to herself.

17 Amy played in 10 games. She batted .300 with 4 RBIs 2 Doubles and 6 walks for an OBP of .417. She also ran like hell and burned more calories per game than any two players on THE TEAM.

18 Rick played in 10 games, batted .794 with 20 RBIs 9 Doubles 2 Triples and 2 walks.

19 Doug played in 10 games. He batted .706 with 13 RBIs, 7 Doubles, 1 Triple and 2 walks. What an absolute stallion.

24 Peter played in 10 games. He batted .676. He led THE TEAM with 32 RBIs. He led THE TEAM with 8 Home Runs. He also had 5 Doubles and 3 walks. He can field. He can throw. He can be one helluva a good guy. He might be using the same performance enhancing drugs that Ryan Braun used.

25 Andrew played in 5 games. He batted .733 with 4 RBIs and 2 Doubles. He hurt his back. I hope he is OK.

38 Michelle played in 6 games. She batted .167 with 2 RBIs and 6 walks for an OBP of .318. She was the most relaxed player on THE TEAM. Except for when it was time for her to bat or she didn't care for a call the umpire made. Other than that

99 Chris played in 8 games. He batted .704 with 10 RBIs, 7 Doubles and 3 walks. Chris is a founding member of THE TEAM and in 12 seasons has never struck out. On top of all that ability as a hitter there was his MVP performance as a pitcher. His choice to take his talents to Simi Valley is a huge blow to THE TEAM.

Decent season

Lots of fun

Chris! Come back! We need backup pitching! I can't do it alone at the mound! I like short too much!

Thanks for taking the time to post this blog every week as well as all the work you do to prepare for each season and game.

Chris, I second Lou's statement, please come back.

I look forward to our next season!

Melody said...

It was a great season... Trust me when I say it's way more stressful to watch the game then play. Hopefully I will be back to normal by the spring season :)

Many of you don't remember when we didn't win ANY games for how many seasons, Rick? We've been to the Championship game twice and we keep posting winning records, but we'll get there.

Rick said...

You are correct Lou. We did a lot of losing in the early days. We walked uphill in the snow to get to games and we were thankful for those games. We has an overall losing record up until last Summer. We have 63 wins and 57 losses in 12 seasons.

I liked the "Lou's determination" part...translation: "Lou's obsessive need to win bordering on violence"...

Lou you must be psychic.
