WAHOOS 9 – INMATES 2 (Baptist Bowl): Buehrle
throws a complete game, losing the shutout in the 9th when he decides
the Inmates have been humiliated enough and allows a pair of meaningless runs to
WAHOOS 14 – LDMF 0 (Baptist Bowl):
No shit, this was really ugly. Morel (!?!) goes 4 for 6 with a bases-loaded
triple, Jurrjens throws a 5-hitter, and the LDMF sucks.
WAHOOS 4 – LDMF 0 (Baptist Bowl):
Inmates have yet to see the Wahoo bullpen. Masterson allows 3 hits and no walks;
the ‘Hoos turn 2 DPs, and face only one Inmate beyond the minimum.
WAHOOS 3 – INMATES 2 (Baptist
Bowl): Perez self-immolates in the 8th, blowing a save (and
himself) as -7 fans show up to the Baptist Bowl (really – that’s what the box
INMATES 7 – WAHOOS 5 (Baptist
Bowl): WE CAN”T BELIEVE IT – THE INMATES WIN! The Wahoos score all their
runs in the 3rd. Perez gets the save.
INMATES 4 – WAHOOS 0 (The
Reservation): Chacin and Hernandez toss a 3-hitter. Cargo taters.
INMATES 9 – WAHOOS 4 (The
Reservation): Six Inmates homer in this game to extend the Beakless
Chicken Gang’s winning streak to three games.
WAHOOS 16 – INMATES 8 (The
Reservation): The Wahoos score 9 in the first and torch the LDMF
pitching staff, settling with 22 hits. Shit.
WAHOOS 9 – INMATES 4 (The
Reservation): Youklis tattered twice and Buehrle wins again. Sigh…
WAHOOS 8 – INMATES 6 (The
Reservation): Some asshole hits a walk-off homer in the 9th
to make the LDMF look even worse. Shit again. Diarrhea, actually…
Game 1: Roy Halladay whiffed 14 batters as the DIAMONDVISION defeated the NADS by a score of 7 to 3 at the jock stap

Game 1-Zaps bang out 17 hits and blast the Mavs 12-3 Game 2-Both teams score a run in the 12th
inning, but Morgan triples and Izturis picks him up for a 6-5 Zap victory. Game 3-Zaps built a
6-1 lead behind Greinke's solid start and hung on for a 6-3 win. Game 4-In a
bizarre game with four Web Gems, three errors, and five unearned runs the Mavs
get their first triumph of the series 9-7. Game 5-The Mavs score 7 runs in
the first 3 frames and hold on to take the getaway game 7-6.
Game 1-Morgan and Bautista both home in a 3-run 8th inning that powers the Zaps over the Nads 4-2. Game 2-
CJ Wilson dominates the Zaps
with 13K's in a complete game 11-1 dominating triumph. Game 3-Zaps leave 13
men on base in a 4-2 loss to the pink wrinklies prompting hitting instructor
Sugar Ray Leonard to order extra BP. Game 4-Zaps build a 7-1 lead after six
innings and hold off a furious Nad outburst to win 7-6. Game5-Zaps score 4 in

10th innning single that drove in the game winner in a 6-5 Hoo triumph. Game 3-The Zaps

12th, stole second and third, and Dayan Viciedo singled him for in a 4-3 Zap
every inning victory. Game 5-Reyes came a single short of the cycle to back
up Scherzer's 3 hits over 7 innings as the Zaps kick the Hoos out of town
They're neck and neck! With seven days left in the regular season, the Zaps and Sidewinders are tied for the lead in the Extra Reserve Contest. For those of you scoring along at home, it comes down to this: the Zaps and Snakes have 8 common teams. The difference makers are the Blue Jays and Braves (SSW) vs the Brewers and Diamondbacks (Zaps). The Snakes would win if they tie due to Albert Pujols having already served as the Angels' DH 30 times.
I will try to update the standings daily for this last week of the season.
Austin Jackson was traded to the Warpigs. In return, the FFTs get Alejandro De Aza, the Pig 2nd round pick, and a 2014 3rd round pick. In addition, the FFTs and Warpigs will swap draft positions in rounds 3-12 of next year's draft.
Game 1-Zaps pound Shields card for six runs and hang on 8-5 to take the
opener. Game 2- Jay Bruce
hits an 8th inning taters off Benoit to get the Drillers even in the series
3-2. Game 3- Vazquez dominates with a complete game 3-hiiter in a 7-1
whitewash. Game 4-The Zaps offense continues to struggle as Bourjos drives in
all three Driller runs in a 3-1 triumph. Game 5- DRILLERS SUCK! signs cover
the stands as the Zaps win the getaway 7-4.
Game 1-Morse broke up a nothing nothing tie with a two-run tater in the sixth
and the Tweeners cruise to a 7-2 win behind Gio's solid one run allowed over six
innings. Game 2- The game was tied 4-4 in the top of the 9th, but Norm put
together a five-hit rally that plated three, and the bullpen held off a Zap
rally 7-5. Game 3- In a disgustingly lopsided game the Al's Evil Empire
pounds out 23 hits to beat the Zaps 15-4. Game 4-The Tweeners build an 8-0
lead and hold off the Zaps to win 8-5 behind Jose Tabata's five RBI
outburst. Game 5- Gio tosses a complete game supported by fourteen hits to
cruise 12-4. Game 6-The good guys finally break out with eight runs in the
sixth that knocks out King Felix and win their first game of the series
11-6. Game 7- The Zaps build a 7-2 lead behind Wandy's strong 6 and hang on
to win the getaway 7-4.
Could it be that a team with a losing record makes the playoffs AS A WILDCARD? It's certainly possible. Right now, there are only 5 teams with records over .500. The DVs, Buckeyes, and Rhinos are running away with their divisions, and will all win 100+ games. The AWD leader is the Tweeners, who are 8 games over .500. The only other team with a winning record is the Drillers, and they are only 69-68.
The Fungoes would earn the last wildcard spot right now. They are 76-76 with 10 games to play. Right behind the Fungoes: the Mavs, the Zaps, and the Bees. Even the Inmates or Nads could be a surprise playoff contender.
No, really. The Inmates and Nads are only 4 games in back of the Fungoes. Stranger things have happened.
I've added a link on the website that ranks all the teams with their records and GB status.
Oh, and in the Extra Reserve Contest, the Mavs have fallen out of contention. The Zaps have come on strong, but the Sidewinders still hold the lead.
With the AWD up for grabs, and the NASOMA 2-time defending champs VivaZapastas
strutting into town, the Logan County Tweeners rise to the occasion and take 6
of 7 games from the Zaps at the Hooverdome. Game #1 the Tweeners jump on
Niese early for a 4-0 lead, Nova gives a quality start, Tweeners get 14 hits
including homers by Victorino, Hart, and Morse, 7-4 Tweeners win. Game #2
Zaps take the early 3-0 lead on a McCutcheon tater, but the Tweeners hang tough,
and Jose Tabata nails the only pitch thrown by Benoit in the bottom of the 9th
for a walk-off 6-5 win. Game #3 Tweeners get homers from Sandoval, Zobrist,
Venable, and Victorino; MadBum fans 12; all for naught as Zaps win 10-4. Andruw
Jones and Joses Reyes and Bautista combine to go 7 for 13 with 2 doubles, 2
homers, 7 runs scored and 8 RBIs. Game #4 was a tight affair until Tweeners
plate 6 in the 5th, King Felix wins his 16th, final score 11-6. Zaps waste 2
more homers and 5 RBIs by Bautista. A true team attack by the Tweeners as all 9
starters plus the Lone(y) pinch-hitter all hit safely and 7 different Tweeners
drive in runs. Game #5 we go to expanded rosters, but Dan Hudson needs little
help with a complete game 5-1 victory. Carl Crawford's leadoff homer was all
the Zaps could muster. Tweeners get homers from Cozart and Venable, along with
2-out ribbies from Morse and Sandoval. Zap bats remained quiet in game #6 as
Will Venable had 2 base hits and the NORM TWEENERS beat the TRISTAN VIVAZAPASTAS
by a score of 6 to 1.
NORM came up with 3 runs in the 2nd inning. James
Loney kicked off the action when he drew a walk. After an out was recorded,
Venable stepped in and he tripled. Shane Victorino then worked the squeeze play to
perfection. Victorino then stole second base. Alex Presley stepped into the
box and doubled. After another out, Pablo Sandoval came to the plate and drew a
walk. That early run support was enough for Gio Gonzalez(10-11) and NORM.
TRISTAN was out-hit by NORM, 8 hits to 4.
Joel Hanrahan recorded his
9th save. Josh Johnson(0-1) took the loss. He allowed 4 runs and 7 hits in
In the finale Tweeners pull away with a run in the 7th and 3
in the 8th to win 8-4, thanks in large part to the servings of reliever Nathan
Eovaldi. Felix improves his record to 17-8. 2 RBIs each for Zobrist, Scutaro,
Venable, and Victorino.
DiamondVision and the Buckeyes netplayed the
last 5 games of their season series at the Buckeye Palace. By winning 4 of 5 the
DVs inch ahead of the Bucks for
the #1 seed, with a one game overall lead and two ahead in the loss column.
Game 1 – Giancarlo Stanton homers and has 2
doubles while Helton and Granderson add solo blasts in a 7-1 DV win that moves
Jared Weaver to 20-6.
Game 2 – Buckeyes ride Aceves 7 and 1/3 innings
of 6 hit, 8 strikeout pitching to win 11-3. Giancarlo opened the flood gates in
the 2nd with the dreaded “Double and two base error – all runners
score” result that ultimately leads to 3 runs in that frame and the Bucks pile
on 5 runs in the 3rd.
Game 3 – DVs score 5 in the 5th and
coast to a 10-2 win- nothing notable here as even Wrigley and Shea showed little
Game 4 – Ogando turns in a stellar effort in a
combined shutout as the DVs score 8 runs on 10 hits in an 8-0 win.
Game 5 –
Finally a close game. DVs lead 2-0 after 2, Bucks tie it in the 3rd,
then push ahead 6-2 through 4 as Chipper homers off of Halladay. Undaunted, the
DVs answer with Granderson (38th) and Giancarlo (48th) HRs
and score 3 in both the 5th and 6th to go ahead 8-6. Of
course the DV bullpen hacks up a fur ball behind Clippard and Bard, allowing 2
in the 8th, the second run coming on a Shelley Duncan (the baseball
player, not the actress – she was “Sandy”) ground ball X chance that Hardy can’t
corral. In the 10th Holliday singles home Granderson and Drew Storen
saves the day in the DV 9-8 win.
DVs have 16 games left, Buckeyes 14. Stay tuned
for the ultimate DV collapse.
Fungoes outscored the Wahoos in the series 34-24 and shut
the Wahoos out three times. But the Wahoos still managed 5 wins. All five games
at WTF were pitchers duels. No team scored more than 3 in those games.
Game 1: Wahoos squander a
6-run inning as the Snakes rally against Mujica for the 7-6 win.
Game 2: Snakes jump out to a 3-0 lead after two. Tex hit a grand slam in
the third. But the Snakes use a 6-run inning to come back and win 10-8. Danks
went all the way. Struck out a dozen. Gave up 13 hits.
Game 3: Wahoos win, 8-5. Guess what. Another big inning. This time the
Wahoos were powered by a Youkilis homer and scored 4 in the seventh.
Game 4: Early error by Tex helps open flood gates. We lose 9-0.
Game 5: Wahoos win 3-2 on a double from Jay in the ninth.
The DVs have clinched their division and are within striking distance of the Buckeyes for the best record in the league. Congrats to the DVs. Sorry about your unexpected early exit from the post season again. (I just wanted to be the first to say it. And there was nothing unexpected about it - I was just being nice.)
The Buckeyes and Rhinos are on the verge of clinching their divisions.
Among the DVs, Buckeyes, and Rhinos, it appears two will get first round byes and the other will have to play a first round series.
The AWD has the only race going on. The Tweeners lead the Zaps by a game and a half. Even the Bees are only 4.5 back, but they're the Bees, so who cares?
Looks like the Snakeman picked a bad time to give up alcohol.
The battle for the two wild card spots will be interesting. The AWD runner up, the Fungoes, and the Drillers are neck and neck and neck for the two spots. The Mavs and Bees are close as well.
Technically, the Wahoos could still work their way into the playoff talk, but they'd have to actually play some games... and win. Don't hold your breath.
Should be fun. Well, if you're IN the race. For the rest of us, there's the battle for draft positioning.
Would you keep Pineda? Man that Lincecum trade sucks. I traded away my favorite
Red for 2 unusable pitchers. Other than the Albert Belle trade (I think he was
still called Joey then) this is worst trade I have ever made. Holla.
We all make bad trades. Giving up on Pineda now would just compound it. Pigman
I know but Pineda showed up overweight to camp
and recently was arrested for DUI. If I wanted a fat drunk guy on my team I'd
draft my brother.
DiamondVision and SuperGoofs hooked up via
netplay to play their season series. DV’s take 8 of 10 as they await their first
round playoff disposal.
Since I’m continually tired of typing it, and in
the interest of saving kilobytes on the server, wherever you see “*” – simply
insert the following verbiage : “DVs hit a bunch of solo homeruns on the way to
G1 – “*” 11-5 victory
G2 – “*” 10-3 victory
G3 - “*” 7-2 victory
G4 – “*” 6-5 victory in 11 innings as Mike Adams
finally gets tired after pitching something like 7+ innings
G5 – “*” 5-2 victory
G6 – “*” 10- 6 LOSS after the SuperGoofs
management lamblast their players in the press in the game 5 post game press
G7 – “*” 6-0 victory
G8 – “*” 10-6 victory
G9 – “*” 8-4 victory
G10 – Fearing they would miss their team plane
home after the marathon series, Daniel Bard serves up a bottom of the
9th , walk off grand slam to Ryan Roberts as the Goofs win 6-2.
The DVs spend an evening as they wait on their inevitable
first round playoff loss with a 6-1 beatdown of the formerly playoff bound
Fungoes. There were some games that were closer than the previous 7, and the
Fungoes had horrible rolls and luck with very few BP HR’s even attempted.
G1 – (first 4 in the DV bandbox) Hardy singles in
the 8th to key a 5-4 win. Fungoes had broke on top 2-0, with the DVs
hitting back to back solo shots to tie it. DVs had taken a 4-2 lead, only for
the Fungoes to hit 2 homers in the 7th to tie it at 4 before Hardy’s
G2- DVs hit 7 solo homers in a 8-5 win. Stanton
and Trumbo were heard after the game bitching about the lack of runners on base
keeping their RBI totals down.
G3 – Hardy and McCann (and maybe a few others)
hit home runs in a 8-1 DV win
G4 – DVs complete the sweep with a 15-2 win
Last 3 are September games from WTF
G5 – Holliday homers in the 10th off
Papelbon in a 3-2 DV win. Fungoes had rallied in the 9th to tie it,
only to see Papelbon’s first appearance in the series dashed.
G6 – Fungoes get off the deck with an Orlando
Hudson grand slam walk off in the 10th in a 7-3 win
G7 – DVs ride Halladay and 3 relievers to a 5-0
The first two games were played at The BallPork. The last 4 at The Reservation.
Gm 1 - Wahoos won 5-1. Two Pig errors allowed 3 unearned runs. Jair Jurrjens tossed a 4-hitter.

Gm 4 - Wahoos won 9-4. Dillon Gee: 1 inning of relief, 6 runs. Ballgame.
Gm 5 - Warpigs win 4-0. Playing in the worst pitcher's park in the league against a team that runs a pretty good lineup out there vs lhp, Erik Bedard threw a complete game shutout, limiting the Hoos to 4 hits. Cameron Maybin went 4-4 with 3 doubles.
Gm 6 - Warpigs win 6-2. Brett Lawrie goes 3-5 with a double, a homer, and 4 RBI.
