Game 6 - It is Both Official and Constructive

THE TEAM sure couldn't get out of F League fast enough.  
Sexual Chocolate!

It was one of those great games where 11 players played, 11 players had a hit and 10 players had at least one RBI.  There was great pitching by Natasha and Dave.  There was even a point where Hot Sunday had the bases loaded and no outs but THE TEAM was able to get out of the jam without allowing any runs. That is some Barry Bonds level of steroids.

Acknowledging outstanding achievement in such a game is a challenge.  Lou hit a Home Run.  Peter went 3 for 4 with a base clearing Triple and 4 RBIs.  Let's give steroid tacos with cheese to Dave who went 4 for 4 with a Double and 2 RBIs.  

Natasha bailed THE TEAM out again coming in to sub.  Sharon played through the pain.  Aerial limped to a 4 for 5 day with a Double and an RBI.  Dora went 4 for 5 with 2 Doubles and 3 RBIs.  Something was probably hurting on her too.  Let's give her some of those Dodger Stadium Choco Tacos.  Better yet Sexual Choco Tacos.  "That boy can sang!"

Game 5 - F U League

There was a similar post after the first round of last season.  THE TEAM was led to slaughter in E League and looking forward to more realistic competition in F League.  This time THE TEAM is through turning into the skid of F League and ready to just fishtail off the highway down into G League.

Sounds like fun.

THE TEAM was lookin' good against Water Tower Productions.  It was 5-2 and then it was 5-3 and then there was a blizzard of line drives.  Old and young alike were united in their vision of smooching line drives through the infield or plopping them in front of the outfielders.  Assholes.


Lets look at the leaders after the first round

Batting Average (Gentlemen)

.909  Doug
.813  Lou
1.000 Victor because he went 3 for 3 in the one game he played in

Batting Average (Ladies)

.643  Aerial
.556  Melody
.467  Dora

RBIs (Gentlemen)

8  Peter
4  Doug
3  Lou
3  Rick

RBIs (Ladies)

5  Dora
3  Aerial
2  Melody


4  Lou
3  Rick
2  Melody
2  Doug
2  Dora
1  Aerial
1  Victor
1  Dave


3  Lou
1  Rick

Home Runs

1  Peter

So that was real and officially recorded here in the blog of record.  There have been encouraging moments in the first round and THE TEAM is clearly athletic enough to win a few in any league if there were some form of consistency in focus and attendance. 

You gotta have goals

Double Catastrophe

THE TEAM got swept in a Doubleheader.  It feels like 2008 all over again.  THE TEAM can't seem to move forward.  There are moments that things look good and players are making plays and then everybody climbs on a missile straight to bloody hell.

Or course it's all recreational.  It's supposed to be fun and it is but it is even more fun to win.  Maybe it's time to lower expectations.  Maybe it's time to start drinking BEFORE games.  Enough of all this hissing and cursing and screaming helpful playing tips at each other.

Moving on to the good news:


Peter hit a Home Run.

G League is in our future.  There must be some pile of slobs out there that THE TEAM can hand it to.

Game 2 - Some Kind of Nightmare

THE TEAM improved a lot from Game 1.  11 Players played and 10 had hits.  THE TEAM hit .677 with 5 Doubles, 2 Triples and 3 walks.  These are certainly steps in the right direction but losing to a team that only had 8 players on the field is a real kick in the tits.

Let's not focus on gloom and doom. 

Comic Relief torched a lot grounders right up the middle and nobody could get to them.  THE TEAM stooged it up with more than enough errors but there were plenty of hits that nobody on any team could have defended.

Natalia got her first hit of the season

Lou hit two triples

Aerial's hair was magnificent

It's not all gloom and doom
