The Playoffs - The Revenge

THE TEAM actually lost to Vicious N Delicious in the first round.  I am certain they are a swell bunch once you get to know them but come on!  Nobody likes a sore loser (except Lou) but there is no way THE TEAM should have hung only 10 runs on those turtles.

Well lucky lucky universe THE TEAM got another shot at them and didn't waste a thing.

The defense was strong.  The hitting was sweet (.660).  The base running was spectacular.  That's detail that gets overlooked (except for Dora who has always been a crafty base runner),  THE TEAM was aggressive on the bases but still smart smart smart.

Dave did his thang pitching and also went 4 for 4 with a Double and 3 RBIs.  Peter went 4 for 4 with a Double and 2 RBIs.  Lou went 5 for 5 with 2 Doubles and Triple and 4 RBIs.  Aerial went 4 for 5 with a Double and 2 RBIs.  Kelly went 3 for 5 with an RBI.  Eleven players played and 10 and RBIs.

They had to dust off the Mercy Rule.

THE TEAM wins 22-8 and moves on to the Championship.

Fall 2014

THE TEAM dropped the first game of a Doubleheader by hitting a season low .400 and adding some bone-headed defense into that bouillabaisse.  Tough loss.  The defense was properly snug for game 2 so THE TEAM finished the season 7-3.  Sweet Victory.  There were Home Runs by Victor and Lou.  There were some great plays in the outfield by Aerial and Victor.  Let's get to your season stats.

1 Aerial played in 9 games.  She hit .567 with 7 RBIs, 4 Doubles, 3 Walks and the first Home Run by a lady in the history of THE TEAM.  She was never a smart ass

3 Lou played in 8 games.  He hit .750 with 4 Doubles and a Walk.  He led THE TEAM with 3 Home Runs, led THE TEAM with 27 RBIs and led THE TEAM with 8 Triples.  Another spectacular season from Santini.

8 Maddie played in 2 games.  She did not get a hit but she worked a walk for an OBP of .167 and scored a run.  She is a solid kid

10 Melody played in 9 games.  She hit .560 with 9 RBIs, 4 Doubles and led THE TEAM with 7 Walks.  She kept it very positive.

12 Natasha played in 7 games.  She hit .500 with 6 RBIs, 1 Double and 4 Walks.  She was a lights out pitcher and all kinds of hustle.  It's great to have her back

15 Natalia played in 10 games.  She hit .280 with 4 RBIs, 2 Doubles and 5 Walks.  She played hard and keeps improving with every game.

18 Rick 10 games .656, 16 RBIs, 5 Doubles, 2 Walks

19 Doug played in 8 games.  He hit .654 with 11 RBIs, 1 Home Run, 4 Doubles, 2 Triples and 4 Walks and with his hat flying off of his head

24 Peter played in 10 games.  He led THE TEAM hitting .778.  He also had 20 RBIs, 2 Home Runs, 6 Doubles, 2 Triples and 3 Walks.  A nickname was selected for Peter at the BBQ.  Does anybody remember what it was?

25 Dora played in 10 games.  She led the ladies hitting .656.  She also led the ladies with 13 RBIs.  There were two walks in there and her smart base running.

27 Victor played in 8 games.  He hit .615 with 20 RBIs, 2 Home Runs, 1 Triple, 2 Walks and led THE TEAM with 7 Doubles.  He let everybody know he was playing team ball this season and by team ball he meant lots and lots of f-words

30 Kelly played in 10 games.  She hit .406 with 9 RBIs, 1 Double and 1 Walk.  She was a very valuable infielder and did a great job and first base and third base.  It's great that she is back with THE TEAM

38 Dave played in 9 games.  He hit .643 with 8 RBIs, 1 Double and 3 Walks.  THE TEAM needed a pitcher and Dave has delivered.  Good Morning Dave.  

THE TEAM also has to thank Rosemary and Jimmy for helping out when we were short.  You will get a t-shirt when THE TEAM wins the championship.

The playoffs are next week!
