The Post Season

Dave's Grand Slam in the playoff game has to be in here.  That was awesome.  The Championship game was not awesome.  The real excitement was in the C League game before us.  It was 12 innings of cranky shitheads yelling and unable to break the tie.  It all ended on a blown interpretation of the rules so the umpires were probably pretty used up and cranky when it was time for THE TEAM to play.  THE TEAM made it easy on them by losing big so there was nothing to argue about.

THE TEAM - Summer 2017

Another losing season is in the books.  It isn't that bad actually.  Most of the losses were from getting pushed around in C League by a bunch of homeboys and slobs and crybabies and Deluxe crybabies and misfits.  That didn't feel too terrific.


Here's your deal:

3 Lou played in 7 games.  He hit .667 with 11 RBIs.  He had 5 Doubles and 1 Home Run.  He led THE TEAM with 8 Triples.  That's a record.  He can play any position on the field and that's always valuable.

4 Lauren played in 8 games.  She led THE TEAM hitting .680.  We aren't talking about leading the ladies, we are talking about C4 leading THE TEAM.  She led the ladies with 7 RBIs and 2 Doubles and covered it all in Centerfield.

5 Kelly played in 9 games.  She hit .423 with 2 RBIs.  She had 6 Walks giving her and OBP of .531. She was great at first base an All-Star turning doubleplays at second.

7 Natasha played in 8 games.  She hit .458 with 6 RBIs and 2 Doubles.  She pitched lights out and is the perfect balance of competition and fun.  She is going to be a great manager.

11 Dave Q played in 5 games.  He hit .500 with 9 RBIs and 5 Doubles.  He made it look easy in Left Field

12 Daniyel played in 4 games.  She hit .111.  Not enough games to get her thing going.  All of Burbank knows you are better than that.

18 Rick 9 games .567 20 RBIs 1 Double 1 Triple 1 Home Run

22 Dave R played in 6 games.  He hit .353 with 5 RBIs.  He had a hit in every game he played in and did a great job pitching with that weird-assed backspin thing he does.

23 Melody played in 9 games.  She hit .421 with 5 RBIs.  She led THE TEAM with 7 Walks giving her an OBP of .577.  Good Eye Melody!

24 Peter played in 9 games.  He hit .647 with 14 RBIs.  He had 1 Double and led THE TEAM with 4 Home Runs.  He was an awesome Eagle Scout of a thirdbaseman.

25 Dora played in 8 games.  She hit .318 with 4 RBIs and 2 Doubles.  She caught foul tips and throws to home for something like 250 outs this season.

33 Jimmy played in 9 games.  He hit .656 with 14 RBIs.  He had a Home Run and led THE TEAM with 6 Doubles.  His arm is a freakin weapon.

51 Kesley played in 6 games.  She hit .059.  She's new and she's having fun while being appropriately hard on herself.  The hit she got was a real deal worm burner right up the middle.

So now let's eat a saltine cracker and drink some water and cleanse the palate of all that losing because a Championship is right around the corner.
