THE TEAM - Just admit it!

Clearly somebody on THE TEAM stole Jobu's Rum.  How else can THE TEAM be held to 2 runs

Winter 2013

What a hideous slide into mediocrity.

Here is what you want to know:

2 Summer batted .560 with 4 RBIs 3 Doubles and a walk. 

3 Lou led THE TEAM batting .889 with 28 RBIs 6 Home Runs led THE TEAM with 8 Doubles led THE TEAM with 5 Triples and had 1 Walk.

4 Jenny batted .333 with 4 RBIs.  No Walks No Strikeouts and the laser focus of a new mother.

8 Cassie batted .444 with 6 RBIs 1 Double and 2 Walks

10 Melody batted .400 led the ladies with 9 RBIs and led THE TEAM with 9 Walks

12 Natasha batted .467 with 3 RBIs 2 Doubles 3 Walks led THE TEAM in sliding and was a great pitcher.

15 Jad never recovered from her bum knee so THE TEAM lost out there

18 Rick batted .600 with 11 RBIs 4 Doubles 1 Triple 2 Walks and led THE TEAM in frowning because people were late.

19 Spaz batted.680 with 13 RBIs 1 Home Run 4 Doubles and 4 Walks

21 Randy batted .700 with 15 RBIs 1 Home Run 2 Doubles 1 Triple and 3 Walks

24 Peter batted .784 led THE TEAM with 7 Home Runs led THE TEAM with 30 RBIs and had 5 Doubles

25 Dora batted .344 with 7 RBIs and 2 Doubles.  We all know that if you could steal bases in slow pitch softball she would have led THE TEAM

27 Victor batted.609 with 9 RBIs 3 Home Runs 5 Doubles and 2 walks.   

THE TEAM says goodbye to Jad and Randy.  They will be impossible to replace.  Since there were no stats for Jad, let's look at her career.  34 Games 116 AB 50 Hits 31 RBIs 6 Doubles 1 Triples and 18 walks giving her a .431 AVG with a .507 OBP.

Let's go ahead and look at Randy's too.  Randy played in 28 Games 93 AB 66 Hits 1 Home Run 8 Doubles 3 Triples and 10 Walks for a .710 AVG and a .738 OBP.

There were a lot of stats in this blog post and no jokes.  This probably made for bad reading.  Maybe I should have polished off that Tullamore Dew first.

Let's Get Some Heroin!!!

"There are three rules that I live by: never get less than twelve hours sleep; never play cards with a guy who has the same first name as a city; and never get involved with a woman with a tattoo of a dagger on her body. Now you stick to that, and everything else is cream cheese."

THE TEAM was fueled by Melody's birthday cupcakes so the 5150s did not stand a chance.  That is the sixth win of the season which means we are officially a winning team in F League.  Let's have some of the traditional Chris Kiefer Heroin to celebrate.

It was a tight game that was only tighter because we started short handed.  YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!!!

Let's get right to the steroids

Natasha went 2 for 3 which is certainly andro-worthy but she earned the full Bartolo Colon cycle with her pitching.  In the last inning all of her first pitches were strikes.  Awesome.

Randy went 2 for 3 with a base clearing Triple for 3 RBIs on the day.  Victor went 2 for 2 with a Double and a Home Run.  Enjoy your Sammy Sosa steroids.  Those steroids are so powerful they make you forget how to speak English.

We CAN Dig It!!!

THE TEAM finally beat Can You Dig It.  THE TEAM scored 3 in the first and held the bad guys to 2.  Natasha was sharp so THE TEAM wasn't giving anything away. 

There is something about that left handed pitcher that seems to keep our runs down.  THE TEAM only scored 6 runs in 5 innings and were down by 5. 

Randy went 4 for 4 with 2 RBIs and his first Home Run.  So that was awesome!

The late rally was the thing that made this game great.  Jenny was hitting the ball well but knocking it right into the gloves of those Can You Dig It ghouls.  She came through with a clutch RBI late and THE TEAM was headed toward...

... Sweet Victory

It was a fun game because everybody contributed.  Gavin took some great pictures.  Mike helped make a lot of noise.  Anybody who joins a softball team imagines a day like today.

Let's award some steroids

We have already acknowledged Randy's Home Run and Lou went 4 for 4 with a Home Run and 3 Doubles but the Jason Giambi steroids go to Peter.  He went 4 for 5 with 2 Home Runs 2 Doubles and 6 RBIs.

Jenny rallied late and Summer went 2 for 4 on top of doing a great job in left field but the Guillermo Mota steroids go to Melody who went 2 for 4 with a walk and 3 RBIs to go along with sliding under the tag on Peter's double to put THE TEAM up by 3.

Great game. Great win.
