Winter 2014 - Almost the Worst Season Ever

That is probably not the most positive title for a blog post especially since THE TEAM wrapped up the season by opening a can on Balls & Dolls.  Everybody was killing it in Game 10.  Eleven players played, Eleven players had at least two hits.  Ten players had RBIs.  There was sizzling defense, big fun, and of course...

Sweet Victory

Let's check out your stats:

1 Aerial played in 4 games.  She batted .500 with 2 RBIs.  No walks no strikeouts, just wheels and hustle and the full timbre of her podcasting voice.

3 Lou played in 9 games.  He hit .742 with 10 RBIs.  He had a Home Run, 5 Doubles and led THE TEAM with 5 Triples.  Lou has to be pretty fast to hit 5 Triples.  He also led THE TEAM in...  instruction.

4 Jenny played in 5 games.   She batted .188 with 4 RBIs.  She did a good job when THE TEAM needed her at first base.  She showed a great arm underneath the cardigan sweater.

7 Heather played in 7 games.  She batted .304 with 3 RBIs and two walks giving an OBP of .360.  Heather improved all season and showed great hands at third base.

10 Melody played in 6 games.  She hit .412 with 4 RBIs and a Double.  She led THE TEAM with 5 walks giving her an OBP of .545.  She great at second base and she was spectacular in the outfield.

14 Sharon played in 4 games.  She batted .571 with 3 RBIs a double and a walk.  She ran, she threw, she caught the ball.  Sharon is very athletic.  I would hate to fight her.

18 Rick 10 games .750 12 RBIs 1 Home Run 4 Doubles

19 Doug played in 10 games.  He hit .440 with 12 RBIs, 4 Doubles,  a Triple and 4 Walks.  He overcame a slow start and hit .769 in the second round.

24 Peter played in 10 games.  He hit .743 and led THE TEAM with 23 RBIs.  He led THE TEAM with 7 Home Runs.  He led THE TEAM with 7 Doubles.  He has all the tools to go along with being a pillar of decency.

25 Dora played in all 10 games of course.  Dora batted .538 leading the ladies with 21 hits.  All of those hits were shots down the third base line to go along with some sneaky base running.  She had 7 RBIs, 3 Doubles and 2 Walks.  That's an OBP of .561.

27 Fuckin' Victor played in 9 games.  They were a noisy and profane 9 games that would make Kent Murphy himself shrink in horror.  Through all the racket, Victor batted .607 with 18 RBIs, 2 Home Runs, 6 Doubles, 2 Triples and a Walk.  So the peels of f-words are worth it.

38 Jeff played in 6 games.  He hit .438 with 6 RBIs a Double and a Walk.  He ran well and stayed cheerful through a brutal season.  Jeff is going to get married so let's break Jeff down from a fundamental standpoint.  Jeff was with THE TEAM for 4 seasons.  He played in 24 games hitting .479.  He had 23 RBIs with 4 Doubles and 3 Walks.  There were some great clutch moments along the way.

12 Natasha is leaving to marry the Jeff.  That sucks!  Not that they are getting married, it sucks that she is leaving THE TEAM.  For Winter 2014 Natasha played in 8 games.  She batted .467, led the ladies with 8 RBIs.  She had 2 Doubles and 4 Walks giving her an OBP of .529.  Natasha was an A League pitcher with an A League attitude and she is going to be missed.  THE TEAM has been spoiled for 6 seasons.  Let's go ahead and look at Natasha's dazzling career.  She played in 48 games.  She batted .500 with 44 RBIs, 13 Doubles, 4 Triples and 15 Walks giving her an OBP of .541.  There is no clipboard for pitching but everybody knows the numbers would be awesome.

THE TEAM also got some great contributions from our subs.

21 Mike played in 3 games hitting .833 with 5  RBIs and a Double.

30 Kelly played in 2 games hitting .667 with 2 RBIs and a Walk

2 Yesenia had a walk after she took off her earrings.

Overall the season was a toiletbowl full of nightmares but there was still lots of hustle and lots of effort and a lot of improvement.  That means there is still a lot to look forward to when Summer gets here.

Game 9 - Honk!

This guy looks like Jeff Foxworthy with a drinking problem but he is more funny than anything I could write.
