THE TEAM - The Cold Winter

Another rough season in the books.  That one took forever so it's only fair that this blog also took forever.


That's Butch Cassidy and The Sundance Kid.  You've seen that movie right?  Well sometimes THE TEAM was the Bolivian Army filling the bad guys with holes and sometimes THE TEAM was Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid getting filled with holes but still being very good looking.  

It wasn't all Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head.  THE TEAM hit an above average .596.  The 143 runs was also a nice improvement over 2016.  The 7 Strikeouts were the lowest ever so so there's that.

Here is your deal

3 Lou played in 10 games.  He led THE TEAM hitting .781.  He drove in 21 runs, had 8 Doubles, 3 Triples and 2 Walks.  Check this out:  Lou hit 5 Home runs giving 100 for his career.  How about that.    
5 Kelly played in 8 games.  She tied for the lead among ladies hitting .600.  She had 9 RBIs, 5 Doubles and a Walk.  Those 5 Doubles are a career best.

7 Natasha played in 8 games.  She hit .577 with 7 RBIs, 3 Doubles a Triple and 2 Walks.  She also sang and danced and acted as well as she pitched.  Amazing

8 Aerial played in 0 games.  She hit 0 with 0 RBIs and 0 and 0.  THE TEAM really lost out when work swallowed her up.  We are talking about a career .568 hitter with 49 RBIs, 16 Doubles and 2 Home Runs in in 58 games.  She will be missed.

12 Daniyel played in 7 games.  She hit .211 with an RBI and 4 Walks.  Her season was better than that.  She started brutally slow but hit .500 over her last 3 games.  

18 Rick 9 games .680 12 RBIs 2 Home Runs 2 Doubles

22 Dave played in 8 games.  He hit .409 with 8 RBIs, 1 Home Run and 1 Walk.  That one walk was uphill both ways in the snow.

23 Melody played in 9 games.  She tied Kelly hitting .600 with 9 RBIs, 5 Doubles and 1 Triple.  Big Improvement

24 Peter did his Eagle Scout thing for 10 games.  He tied for the lead with 23 RBIs.  He led THE TEAM with 6 Home Runs.  There were 7 Doubles in there.  No Walks.  Peter also broke a lot of hearts at 3rd base.  We are talking defense people not makin' out at the Drive-In.
   
25 Dora played in 8 games.  She hit .464 with 7 RBIs, 3 Doubles and a Walk.  She led THE TEAM in Recycling

30 Lauren played in 8 games.  She hit .417 with 7 RBIs, 2 Doubles and 2 Walks.  She really became a Centerfielder this season.  

33 Jimmy played in 10 games.  He hit .706 with 16 RBIs, 3 Doubles, 1 Triple and 2 Home Runs.  He collected his 100th career hit this season.

27 Victor played in 9 games.  He hit .667 with 6 Doubles and 3 Home Runs.  He tied for the lead with 23 RBIs and led THE TEAM with 6 Triples.  Now Victor is leaving to go fight crime.  Victor.  That Victor.  It will be really quiet in the dugout now.  It was worth it because for 102 games THE TEAM had the equivalent of a bitchin' Camaro in Left Field.  He was an RBI machine.  For his career he hit 60 Doubles, 23 Triples and 35 Home Runs.  He had 195 career hits and 118 of them were for extra bases.  Here is the thing that is as eye popping as some of those Home Runs.  He had 218 RBIs in 102 games.  That's an RBI for every 5 f-words.  Good luck Victor.  Be fucking safe.

GO THE TEAM!!!

How about we retire Victor's penis? Victor, you will be missed, shoot first, questions later. ...who will be in charge of procreation? Don't look at me! Rick may have had only two home runs, but what home runs! A game winning walk off and a salami! Mel and Daniyel finished strong...We also lead the league in attractive players. Hence, my vote for changing the name of the team to, "The Fuckables".
