Something tells me this means 5 years or so of Kosuke being referred to as Fuck You Dome every time he comes to bat.
I won't start making adjustments on the roster sheets until we get closer to the end of the 2010 season. For now, the rosters still reflect the 2010 teams.

From the WhatTheFungo...
Fungoes visited FFT Land for our final four....here are the results:
Game 1: Ichiro Suzuki had 5 hits and 2 RBI as the FFT'S topped the FUNGOES
in 10 innings by a score of 5 to 4 at Qualcomm Stadium. A Papelbon blown save left the game deadlocked at 4 after nine full innings. FFTs ended up winning
it in the 10th inning. Jorge Cantu lined a base-hit. After an out was
recorded, Tolbert took off for second and slid in with a stolen base.
Michael Bourn then drew a walk. Suzuki was up next and he slapped a single
resulting in an exciting win for the FFTs and a raucous post-game celebration by
the home town fans. FFTs had 11 hits for the afternoon. Fu-Te Ni(1-0) got credit for the victory, pitching 2 and 1/3 innings and
allowing no runs. Scott Feldman(0-1) took the loss in relief. He allowed 2
hits and 1 walk in 2/3 of an inning.
Game 2: In a game for the baseball purist, Rick Porcello(1-2) and James McDonald(0-1)
squared off in a tense pitching duel, The Waxahachie FUNGOES finally emerged
victorious over the FFT'S, 2 to 1. Fungoes brought 2 runs across the plate in the 7th inning with the help of 3
hits. The highlight belonged to Denard Span who deflated the mood of the
partisan fans when he stroked a base-hit plating two runs. The FFTs had a
chance in the 9th but they came up short. Jonathan Papelbon got the save, his 8th. TERRY's manager was reflective after
the loss, 'We should have won this one, we just made one too many mistakes.
Son-of-a-gun, that added a couple more white hairs on this noggin of mine.'
Game 3: Center fielder Grady Sizemore had 2 base hits at Qualcomm Stadium as the FUNGOES beat the FFT'S 4 to 2. Fungoes scored 3 runs in the 6th inning when they had 3 base hits. Mark Teahen
started the inning off right when he hit a single. Denard Span stepped into
the batter's box and he doubled. Lance Berkman was next to the plate, but
was promptly struck out. After another out, Nelson Cruz stepped up to the
plate and he lost the ball over the fence for three runs. The Fungoes had just 6
hits for the night. David Price(2-0) went 6 innings allowing 2 runs for the victory. Jonathan
Papelbon recorded the save, his 9th. Danys Baez(0-1) was the loser in
relief. Jason Kendall was quoted later saying "He hit the shit out of that one", when asked to describe the home run ball served up by Baez.
Game 4: First baseman Lance Berkman lofted one into the 'cheap seats' and had 5 RBI as
the FUNGOES outscored the FFT'S 8 to 7. Berkman provided much of the offense. He blasted a two-run home run in the
4th inning, doubled plating a run in the 5th inning and doubled which was
good for two runs in the 7th inning. This was the kind of game that many
fans love as the lead changed hands 5 times. Mitch Stetter(1-0) picked up the victory, allowing no runs in 1/3 of an
inning. James McDonald(0-2) was charged with the loss in relief. He allowed
3 hits and no walks in 1 inning. With this win, the Fungi improved to a division leading 71-50 record. With the loss, the FFTs record falls to 59-93, worst in the
division overall. "Well, I blame myself" Said Team owner Terry Miller, "I hired that sorry low-down dog of a manager".

At The Pigsty
Game 1 - FFTs win 8-7 - Albert Pujols hit three homers, but it wasn't enough.
Game 2 - Pigs win 5-4 - Ichiro hit a 3-run HR in the 9th to chase Josh Beckett, but the PigPen somehow holds on for the save.
Game 3 - Pigs win 4-0 - John Lackey threw a complete game 1-hitter. He allowed only a double and a walk - both to Jason Bay.
At FFT Field
Game 4 - FFTs win 7-1 - Jered Weaver went the distance for the win. Jason Bay had a single, double, and homer while driving in 4.
Game 5 - FFTs win 3-2 - Rafael Furcal's 8th inning homer gave Kenshin Kawakami the win over Cliff Lee.
Game 6 - FFTs win 2-1 - Jason Bay and Miguel Cabrera ruined Rich Harden's shutout bid with back to back homers with one out in the 8th inning. Jered Weaver got the win, while Mariano Rivera saved his third game of the series.

Game 8 - Pigs win 12-7 - Adam Lind had two doubles and a home run to drive in 4 runs. Mike Pelfrey had a shutout going into the 9th, when he turned back into a soul-less pumpkin. The PigPen, most of whom had already left the building, weaseled their way thru the final 3 outs.
At The PigSty
Game 9 - Pigs win 7-4 - This game featured two starting pitchers who had not won a game all year. Joba Chamberlain (0-15) squared off against Brian Matusz (0-4). Matusz, despite having reached his POW, stayed in the game long enough to see the Pig bats overcome a 4-1 deficit with a 4-run 7th and a 2-run 8th. Matusz got the win with Chamberlain getting a no decision. Albert Pujols hit a 3-run homer in the 7th to put the Pigs ahead.
Game 10 - Pigs win 4-3 - Aaron Laffey threw 3 shutout innings of relief for the win.

at the Mud Pit...
Game 1 - Drillers 6, Warpigs 2 - Tim Lincecum lost his shutout in the 9th on another Albert Pujols homer. Andy LaRoche (or is it Adam?) went 3-for-3.
Game 2 - Drillers 17, Warpigs 3 - I can't begin to tell you how much fun this fucking game was to play. The entire Driller lineup contributed, but the two biggest were Derek Jeter and David Murphy, who combined to go 4-for-6 with 5 walks, 7 runs scored, and 9 RBI. The Drillers had 14 hits and 13 walks.
at the Pig Sty...
Game 3 - Warpigs 3, Drillers 2 - Cliff Lee's chance of 20 wins is already history, but he pitched well anyway. Cody Ross and Miguel Olivo homered for the Pigs.
Game 4 - Drillers 7, Warpigs 3 - Josh Beckett got hammered during the game; I got hammered after.
Game 5 - Warpigs 6, Drillers 3 - John Lackey shocked everyone by going the distance and NOT sucking. Pujols and Adam Lind homered.
Game 1 - Warpigs 1, Goofs 0 - Rich Harden and the entire cast of misfits in the PigPen shut down the Goofs on 4 hits. Joe Saunders went all the way for the Goofs, holding the Pigs to a mere 3 hits, but one was a Delmon Young homer.
Game 2 - Goofs 2, Warpigs 1 - Greg Zaun's 2-run homer in the 6th off of Ross Ohlendorf was all Barry Zito needed. Albert Pujols homered in the 9th to avoid the shutout. Mike Adams got the save.
Game 3 - Goofs 6, Warpigs 2 - Garrett Jones and Jim Thome both hit 3-run taters to support the complete game of Joel Piniero.

Game 5 - Goofs 5, Warpigs 4 - Pujols homered and Cliff Lee threw a complete game, but it wasn't enough to overcome the Goofs.
Game 6 - Goofs 6, Warpigs 5 - The Goofs scored 2 in the bottom of the 7th and 2 more in the bottom of the 8th to overcome yet another Pujols tater.

From the Nadman...
NDS sweep the Wahoos at the Jock strap. Wahoos only hit .224 against NAD’s pitching – NADs weren’t much better at .233 , but in ten games, the NADS scored 25 runs to the Wahoo’s 11 runs and that was the difference. Three close games , one shut-out and one blow-out.
From The HEAD INMATE...
Plastic surgery couldn’t have fixed the ugly in final netplay games between Tweeners and Inmates:
INMATES & - TWEENERS 6 [Baptist Bowl]: Ryan Howard’s pinch 3-run homer in 6th tied the game at 6 while Molina singled home the final run in the 7th. Inmate (read: HookPeople) make three errors, but Tweeners get only 5 hits.
TWEENERS 9 – INMATES 6 [Baptist Bowl]: Ugly is as ugly does. Tweener bullpen is great, with F. Rod getting the save.
TWEENERS 5 – INMATES 4 (12) [Tweenerville]: Inmates score all of their runs in the 6th. Brendan Ryan hit bases loaded single in bottom of the 12th for the game-winner.
INMATES 4 – TWEENERS 0 [Tweenerville]: Prototypical Santana makes rare appearance and K’s 17 Tweeners for complete game shutout.
Game 1 - DVs 6, Warpigs 2 - Brian McCann gets 3 hits and a homer and Roy Halladay dominates the pathetic Pig bats.
Game 2 - Warpigs 3, DVs 2 - Ross Ohlendorf goes the distance. Albert Pujols and Justin Maxwell go yard.
Game 3 - Warpigs 5, DVs 4 - Delmon Young hit a 2-run homer in the 8th for the win. Adam Lind hit a 3-run tater earlier. Mike Pelfrey got the win, and Francisco Liriano earned his first save of the year.
Game 4 - Warpigs 6, DVs 1 - Josh Beckett takes advantage of the DV "Draft Position Drive" with a 5-hit complete game. Pujols and Lind hit homers.
Game 5 - DVs 7, Warpigs 2 (10 innings) - The DV bats finally rebelled against their manager's plot to get a lottery pick. All sorts of crap went on in the 10th inning, with DV boss Sally threatening suspensions for anyone getting a big hit.
Game 6 - DVs 6, Warpigs 1 - These last three games took place at DV Park, the only NASOMA park to require a generator to keep 'er filled with air. Trevor Cahill threw a 4-hitter. Matt Holliday and Adam (or was it Andy) LaRoche tatered.
Game 7 - DVs 8, Warpigs 5 - When it became obvious neither team wanted this game, Pig hurler John Lackey became determined to want it less than anybody.
Game 8 - DVs 7, Warpigs 3 - Half the Pig roster had left the park by the 9th inning. Most left from the embarrassment of allowing TWO home runs by Todd Helton.

Buckeyes go 3 - 1 at home and 2-1 on the road to finish up with Inmates.

Shit doesn’t rain but it splatters.
BUCKEYES 5 – INMATES 1 [Baptist Bowl]: Inmates manage four hits off of Carpenter.
INMATES 6 – BUCKEYES 4 [Baptist Bowl]: Four-run5th is enough for a sloppy win.
BUCKEYES 5 – INMATES 1 [Baptist Bowl]: Carbon copy of game one. Inmates get four hits and inhale vociferously.
BUCKEYES 6 – INMATES 3 [BitchSlap Stadium]: Inmates get six hits and continue vacuuming skills.
BUCKEYES 3 – INMATES 2 (DH Game 1) [AssReaming Park]: 2-run, 2-out homer in bottom of the 9th by Rusty Ryal (seriously) reams Inmates in game one, but the fun is just starting…
BUCKEYES 4 – INMATES 3 (DH Game 2) [Sodomy Field]: 2-run, 1-out homer in bottom of the 9th by some other nameless motherfucker tears another new one for the Inmates.
INMATES 4 – Buckeyes 2 [Whap-His-PeePee Park]: Inmates finally win a game when Druidic extremists take over the outfield bleachers in the bottom of the 9th and plant fast-growing shrubbery, preventing any more last minute statistically preposterous crap.

From the Chief...
DVs win the last two of the season at The Reservation. Game 1 was 9-3 and Game 2 was something like 5-2. It was big offensive explosions for the DVs and big-time performances from (he improves to 22-3 for a team that will undoubtedly STILL miss the playoffs).
Game 1 - Warpigs 8, Inmates 7 (10 innings): Delmon Young went 3 for 5 with 3 RBI, but it was a home run in the 10th inning by Miguel Olivo that won the game for the Pigs. Benjie Molina was 3 for 5 with 4 RBI for the Inmates.
Game 2 - Inmates 6, Warpigs 2: Gavin Floyd went the distance for the win. The Pigs made 4 errors.
Game 3 - Inmates 5, Warpigs 2: Floyd wins again, allowing only a 9th-inning 2-run homer to Albert Pujols.
Game 4 - Warpigs 12, Inmates 3: After a 3-spot in the 2nd, the Warpigs score 9 in the 3rd - all after there were 2 outs. Josh Beckett went 9 for the win.
Game 5 - Warpigs 7, Inmates 6: A 3-run homer by Pujols put the game out of reach. Rich Harden got the win.
Game 6 - Warpigs 8, Inmates 5: The Pigs finally got to Floyd for the win. Carlos Gonzalez went 4 for 4 in defeat.
Game 7 - Inmates 6, Warpigs 4: The Inmates scored 5 in the 3rd against Mike Pelfrey, then held on.
Game 8 - Inmates 10, Warpigs 3: Carlos Gonzalez hit 2 of the 4 Inmate homers, and the Inmates trounced John Lackey.
Game 9 - Inmates 8, Warpigs 6: Beware the 3rd inning! This time the Inmates score 7 in the inning, including a grand slam by Jake Fox.
Game 10 - Warpigs 7, Inmates 1: Ross Ohlendorf gets his second straight complete game win over the Inmates, and Pujols hits another 3-run homer.
From The HEAD INMATE...
and Warpigs split ten of the ugliest games in recent memory:
WARPIGS 8 – INMATES 7 (10) [Baptist Bowl]: Three Inmate errors in the 1st inning allow four unearned runs to score. Inmates score unearned run in 9th to tie game and bring on closer Guzman to pitch 10th. M. Olivo hit first pitch @26 miles and Inmates can’t score in bottom of 10th.
INMATES 6 – WARPIGS 2 [Baptist Bowl]: Pigs return the 3-error inning favor, and Floyd pitches a strong complete game victory.
INMATES 5 – WARPIGS 2 [BallPork]: Floyd again pitches well, allowing only a two-run tater to Pujols (who homered for the second straight game).
WARPIGS 12 - INMATES 3 [BallPork]: Pigs score 9 in the 3nd off of Sucktana and Perez, Pooholes homers again, and the Inmates suck.
WARPIGS 7 – INMATES 6 [Baptist Bowl]: You-know-who jacks another, and all the Inmates could do was get close.
WARPIGS 8 – INMATES 5 [Baptist Bowl]: Pigs finally solve Floyd, scoring 5 in the 1st. Ohlendork pitches complete game.
INMATES 6 – WARPIGS 4 [Baptist Bowl]: Big innings rule the day (pardon the pun) as Beakless Chicken Gang score 5 in the 3rd and Porcine Pack answer with 4 in the 4th. Diaz pinch tater for Inmates in 8th ices the game.
INMATES 10 – WARPIGS 3 [BallPork]: 6-run Inmates 4th, highlighted by Gonzalez and Howard 2-run jacks help blow out the Porkers.
INMATES 8 – WARPIGS 6 [BallPork]: Inmates score 7 in the 3rd and hang on for victory despite you-know-who’s three hits.
WARPIGS 7 – INMATES 1 [BallPork]: Ohlendork once again owns the Inmates. Shitstain hits his 935th homer of the series, and Howard taters to help Inmates avoid ignominious shutout.
Interesting note: Both Pig and Inmate management agree that 2e14 is the worst fielding rating for a shortstop, as evidenced by S. Drew’s piss-poor little league performance.

From the DumVees...
In a series that would make the EQA guys jealous, the and DVs staged their version of speed dating, NASOMA style.
Game 1 featured Halladay moving his record to 16-7 with a 3-2 win. Game took 9 minutes
Game 2 was going 8 innings, Hawksworth getting the save and the Wahoos winning 4-1. Game took 11 minutes
Game 3 was almost a carbon copy of game 2 as Nolasco goes 8, Hawksworth gets the save and the Wahoos win 4-1. Game took 12 minutes as the DVs actually had 3 pitching changes
You couldn’t eat a Double Dave’s pizza in the time it took to play those games – nor would you want to!

Fungoes 4, Bees 1
The Bees and Snakes are still playing.
The Standings page should be updated, but I kinda lost track this weekend of who all had played and who all had won. If you see errors on the Standings page or the Expanded Standings page, please speak up.
The O-Dog had a great series for the Fungoes against the Tweeners, going 19 for 43.
Pujols stayed hot. In 30 games this weekend, he went 43/121 (.355) with 33 runs scored, 35 RBI, 11 doubles, and 19 HR.
Pelfrey threw back to back shutouts against the Tweeners and Bees.
The Snakes and Warpigs played in three 1-0 squeakers (the Pigs won 2 of those) but also had scores of 15-10, 18-12, 13-7, and 8-7 (the Snakes won ALL of those).

The burgers were delicious.
Albert Pujols was on fire today. We played 15 and he went deep in 10 of those.
The Tweeners introduced his new "baby shit" dice.
The Killer Bee dogs are, well, let's say very friendly.
And the Fungoes, while apparently satisfying his own needs upstairs, caused the downstairs light shade to fall. The 1000 pound light bulb cover broke loose and crashed down onto the Pig laptop during our contest, landing on the keyboard and breaking one letter (which I have avoided using so far in this post). It was kinda scary (the Beeboy peed his pants and screeched like a girl).
The Snakes will be here soon.
Breakfast is supposed to be legendary. I can't wait.
It's not easy writing a post this long while avoiding a particular letter.

HAL rolled the last eight between theand the . Here are results:
INMATES 4 – DRILLERS 3 [Baptist Bowl]: All of the Driller offense came on a 3-run Johnson spud in the 3rd. Anderson scatters 5 hits through seven; Howard doubles home the game-winner in the 7th.
INMATES 9 – DRILLERS 8 (13) [Baptist Bowl]: Marathon attended by 95 faithful Beak-heads at the Baptist Bowl. Inmates pull it out in the 13th when Chipper Jones singled, Pennington pinch-ran and stole 2nd, and Molina singled him home.
INMATES 3 – DRILLERS 2 [Baptist Bowl]: Howard hit a 3-run homer in the 1st and Santana pitched a 2-hitter. Haren was good for the Drillers, allowing only three singles after the first inning.
INMATES 8 – DRILLERS 7 [Drillerville]: Dukes hits a 2-run tater, then tries to make up for it by committing a 2-base AND a 3-base error in the same inning.bullpen pitched well after Brian “The Self-Immolator” Fuentes tried to give the game away.
INMATES 6 – DRILLERS 1 [Drillerville]: Dunn hits two homers and Vazquez pitches well.
DRILLERS 5 – INMATES 3 [Baptist Bowl]:suddenly remember who they are. Dunn hits another tater, but Lincecum K’s 11. Kelly “Babe” Shoppach homers for the Drillers in what was to become the norm for the rest of the series.
SHOPPACH 5 – INMATES 4 [Baptist Bowl]: Shoppach hits two homers and drives in all the Driller runs. Lincecum wins again, and the Beakless Chicken Gang can’t quite catch up.
DRILLERS 2 – INMATES 1 [Baptist Bowl]: Pitcher’s duel between Floyd and
Rzepcghiu Rzpgauyrtb Rzpciasx , fuck, forget it. Inmates only get three hits because they can’t even pronounce this bastard’s name.
(Editor's note: While I appreciate The HEAD INMATE adding the home park on each game report, I am having trouble understanding why the Drillers had to play SIX games at the Baptist Bowl. Could it possibly have something to do with turf damage at Driller Park due to the recent TwilightPalooza?)
