Killer Bees 5, Tweeners 2

From Logan County...

You can't make this shit up. Tweeners and Bees battle for draft position in the final series of the year. In game 1 (Jonathan Sanchez's final start as a Tweener) we jump on Chris Young for 4 runs in the first inning, but Bees come back to win 8-4 on grand slams by Brad Hawpe in the 6th inning and Ramon Hernandez in the 11th inning. In game 2 (Oswalt's final start as a Tweener) Roy throws 8 solid innings but we get shut out by Billingsley (Tejeda pitches the 9th for the save). Blanton and Verlander are untouchable in game 3; Tweeners win 1-0 thanks to a 13th inning error by Miguel Tejada. We expand rosters for game 4; Tweeners again score 4 in the first inning, but Bees win 7-4 on a 3-run homer in the 11th by Mike Cameron, his second homer of the game. With dead starters littering the floor, Ian Snell starts game 5 for his first (and last?) appearance as a Tweener and gives us a solid 5.2 innings, but gets no decision as we again lose in extra innings on a Cameron homerun in the 12th. In game 6 Aaron Harang (in his final start as a Tweener) takes a shutout into the 10th inning, but gives up a 1-out double to Cameron; Gio Gonzalez comes in to face Hawpe, who drives in the game's only run to give the Bees another extra-inning win. In game #162, Jorge de la Rosa and 4 relievers combine on a 2-hit shutout as the Tweeners cruise 12-0. Cody Ross (in his final game as a Tweener) homers and doubles and drives in 4. Five extra-inning games, 4 shutouts, and the Tweeners drop 5 of 7, securing the 3rd or 4th pick in the 2010 draft.

Where are the cards?

I reckon that makes the FFT's as the official #1 pick of draft, oops, make that the Tweeners with my pick. Now, who to take.

well, the year of the AWD for sure. poor bees. he may be good in 2010, but the other three teams in his division will be too much to overcome. the 2010 bees will be like this year's supergoofs.
