Another Doubleheader, Another Sweep

Once again THE TEAM sweeps a doubleheader.  Here are a few things that help make it all extra-spectacular:

THE TEAM is now 6-2 which means we officially have a winning season so let's all get a taste of Crippler Chris heroin to celebrate. 

THE TEAM is undefeated in the second round so the dream of another championship is very much alive.


Game 1 was a snug 11-6 victory over The Goon Squad.  They were nice and we all took our walks (THE TEAM walked 11 times) but we really should have pounded those clowns.  Perhaps we were saving it for The Dancing Homers.

The Dancing Homers don't suck but they sure don't win that much either.  The two times we have played them we have taken a giant s**t when its time to hit.  When THE TEAM played them last season there were only 3 extra base hits in a 23-13 loss.  THE TEAM played them in Game 2 this season and batted .500 and scored only 8 runs.  Well THE TEAM finally punched through with 1 Home Run, 3 Doubles, 2 Triples and  .710 average.  It ended with a sweet 5 run rally and Jeff driving in the winning run for a 19-18 win.

Steroid tacos for Natasha who went 3 for 4 with 3 RBIs and steroid tacos for Jeff who also drove in 3 including the game winner in the clutch.  Go get a contact high at the Hollywood Bowl you two.

The Ladies

That was a pretty sweet win against the SoCal Furies.  Everybody contributed.  There were two Home Runs by Peter.  There was a GREAT play by Summer to throw a runner out at second.  It all ended in a 14-7 win for THE TEAM.

The ladies carried the day.  All together the women batted .684 with 6 RBIs.  That is awesome.

The First Round

It looks like THE TEAM is back on track after a couple of shitty games.  Tiger Blood was 2-1 going in and Team Puma was 3-0 but THE TEAM swept them in a double header to finish the first round strong.  There were Home Runs by Lou and Peter and an absolute monster of a Home Run by Victor.  There was a double play by Cassie.  There is always lots of good stuff all over the place when THE TEAM sweeps a doubleheader.  Lou pitched all of both games so he should hoist a cool one but he should hoist with his left hand.

Let's look at the leaders through the first round.

Batting Average Men

.882 Lou
.800 Rick

Overall THE TEAM batted .573 with 16 walks and 5 strikeouts but it certainly looks and feels like its coming together.

Game 3

This looks like a good idea.  Don't you think?

Yeah! THE TEAM should be doing more of that.  The Swingers were a pretty solid group but when THE TEAM goes out there and hits .500 with 3 strikeouts it's going to be a long afternoon.  Losses should probably mean no steroids or pimp chalice or cup of greek yogurt or whatever we are awarding this season but this thing is supposed to be constructive and there were some great moments.  That means Lou gets a cup of banana pudding from the Magnolia Bakery for going 3 for 4 including a late grand slam to make it close.  Summer gets a Blu Ray copy of Les Miserables and a gallon of souvenir tears for going 2 for 3 with 3 RBIs.  Dora made a great play on a foul ball.  Everybody either had a hit or and RBI.

Hey Robinson Cano pulls his back foot up early in that video!  Man the Yankees suck.

Summer so Far

There was no blog after Game 1.  Do you know why?  Because I didn't feel like it.  Take that!  Now I have to cram two games worth of horseshit into one blog post.  The first game was against the SoCal Furies.  They looked like a rough bunch with a bunch of shaved head giants that were sending the ball to the moon.  They was actually a nice and friendly group of people.  Of course other always seem nice and friendly when we beat them.  Dora went 2 for 4 with 2 RBIs Doug hit a 2 run Home Run so that was fun.  Another nice detail from week 1 is zero strikeouts.

Week 2 was THE TEAM batting .500 with mostly singles.  Lou hit two home runs and a triple driving in 4 on the day.  The ladies batted .286 with 1 RBI.  It turns out Mike is not just enthusiastic but he is also athletic.  He got the call up and did a great job in left field.  THE TEAM got credit for 8 runs but we only scored 7.  That umpire clearly does not give a shit.  At least he stands up for the games these days.  Does anybody remember when he would plant himself on the bucket of balls and call the game sitting on his ass?  I sure do.

So yeah
