Wahoos Rule!

Rumor has it the Wahoo just won his third league championship in his other Strat league. In fact, the word is he won it against the "best team in the league" by coming back from an 0-3 deficit. The Wahoo has been in that league just a few short years and already has three championships.

Congratulations to the Wahoos!

From the Chief...

In what was an epic 7-game series, SGP rallied from a 3-0 deficit to win. How it happened…
Game 1:  SGP jumped out quick with an Infante HR in the first and took a 2-0 lead. Chatfield scored the next 14 runs. Marco Estrada was forced into starting Game 1 after  SGP played 7 games in the semifinals. Tulo had 6 RBIs and 2 HRs. No. 9 hitter Desmond Jennings homered and drove in 3. Wainwright went 9 for the win.
Game 2:  AJ Burnett started for SGP. He pitched pretty poorly. Ivan Nova and 5 relievers combined for a 9-0 victory. At this point Chatfield was 6-0 in the playoffs and SGP was pretty concerned.  Dustin Pedroia, David Ortiz, Michael Cuddyer and Matt Carpenter all drove in 2 runs for Chatfield.
Game 3: Finally, SGP got to have Max Scherzer start after his mandatory rest.  He went 9 innings. And lost, 3-2. SGP and the ChooChoos traded 2 spots in the first couple innings. But Chatfield scored a single run in the fourth and 6 pitchers were able to hang on. At this point, SGP MVP candidate Paul Goldschmidt was hitting .132 for the playoffs. Yasiel Puig .205. Carlos Santana .156. Carlos Gomez .184. Ian Desmond .156. You get the idea…
Game 4: Adam Wainwright vs. Derek Holland. Going to the bottom of the 3rd and SGP was down 4-1. Then, out of nowhere, an 8-run outburst. The inning went: single, out, double walk, HBP, single, single, single, double, single, out, single, out. Omar Infante was 5-for-5. Wainwright went all the way. SGP wins, 11-6.
Game 5:  Our final home game of the season. Must win. Marco Estrada. Yeah, same guy who got ripped in Game 1. This time he goes all the way and strikes out 8 only giving up 3 runs (2 earned) as SGP wins, 7-3. Big Bartolo Colon took the loss. SGP scored the first seven runs before Chatfield made it interesting late. Infante had 3 more hits. Goldschmidt and Adam Lind both hit their first postseason homers.
Game 6: Max Scherzer gets another start. He goes all the way and strikes out 12 while allowing 4 hits. The ChooChoos used 7 pitchers. SGP rallies to win 8-3. ChooChoos jumped to a 2-0 lead in the first. SGP scored 5 in the fourth. Ian Desmond had the big hit but everybody was getting in on the action. The victory ties the series and means there is still a chance for a miracle.
Game 7: Derek Holland vs. Adam Wainwright. And neither of them make it out of the 5th inning. ChooChoos score 3 in the third with 2 walks and 3 singles. But the hit that will go down as one of the most clutch in SGP history happened in the fourth. Lind and Puig singled with one out. Cervelli walked. Gomez flew out. Desmond rolls HR 1-3 Fly 4-20. And hit the bomb. SGP leads 4-3. Naturally, this wasn’t it. ChooChoos tie it in the 6th thanks to Carlos Gomez committing a 2-base error in CF. Tyson Ross, a starter and winner earlier in the series, started the eighth.  Goldschmidt coaxes a walk. Stanton and Puig K. After a wild pitch, Cervelli is walked intentionally. Carlos Gomez makes up for the error with a single to score Goldy.  Bottom of the eighth took awhile as both teams were thinking and rethinking all along. Lefty Brett Cecil gives up a lead double to Matt Carpenter. Hochever walks Tulo. Revere bunts them over. PH Scooter Gennet whiffs. PH David Ortiz walks. PH Shin Soo Choo grounds out.  SGP goes quietly in the ninth. ChooChoos have a last gasp but start with 2 quick outs. Craig Breslow comes on to face PH Dioner Navarro. He walks. Matt Carpenter doubles. Tulo comes up. Darren O’Day comes in. And Tulo pops up. Ball game over. World Series over.
Co-MVPs Omar Infante (.419) and Ian Desmond (.346 and the slam). Infante hit .410 in the playoffs.
SGP finally won its first division title this season.
SGP has 3 World Series titles after beating Littleton, Margaritaville and Chatfield.

Tweeners and Inmates Trade

The Tweeners sent Wilin Rosario to the Inmates for a reserve pick.

Wednesday, December 24, 2014

More Picks Change Hands

The Rhinos traded pick 54 to the Warpigs for picks 113 and 128.

Tuesday, December 23, 2014

And 5 minutes after posting the Mock Draft...

The Wahoos traded picks 22, 29, 45, 54, 70, and 86 to the Rhinos for picks 3 and 13.

Of course.

Christmas Eve Eve Mock Draft

This is the post you've all been waiting for. This is the post where you find out who you will take next March in the 2015 NASOMA Draft.

The Draft is a bit unusual this year, in that 5 teams have 2 picks each in the first round. Those teams doubling up are the Zaps, Nads, Rhinos, Inmates, and Goofs. The Bees, Pigs, DVs, Tweeners, and Drillers don't have a first round pick.

The selections below were made based on careful consideration (or just a passing glance, really) of player stats, player prospects, and need.

If there are any errors in my judgment (unlikely), I promise to do an updated Mock a few days prior to the Draft.

Here we go...

1. Zaps - Corey Dickerson. The Zaps drafted Corey in the Lightning Round last year and then cut him so that "he would be in the draft next year." This is a lie. Dickerson was cut because, "Ryan Sweeney is better right now than Dickerson will ever be." This is an actual Zapper quote from last March. It must be true because it has quotation marks around it.

2. Nads - Josh Harrison. The Nads follow up last year's excellent draft class with the best player in this year's draft. With Dozier and Frazier already locked in at 2b/3b, JHay will have to play a corner outfield position for the Wrinkled Pink.

3. Rhinos - Jorge Soler. He's young, right-handed, and powerful. And on his first card, he'll be a 3(-3) in RF. If the Nads go for him at pick 2, Harrison falls nicely into the Rhinos' hooves, but I think he'd prefer Soler.

4. Mavs - Jake deGrom. There are lots of talented young pitchers in this draft, and deGrom is arguably the best of the bunch. The Mavs love talented young pitchers. Plus, there's that lower case d at the start of his name which is sure to mesmerize the Mavman.

5. Goofs - Jake Arrieta. There have been years when this would have easily been the first pick in the Draft. The Goofs continue to stockpile top tier starters.

6. Wahoos - Danny Santana. The Wahoos went after pitching in last year's Draft, and, well... that didn't work. This year, he'll take the talented young Twin to play CF and double as the SS back-up.

7. Inmates - Dellin Betances. After looking at his stats again, I can't imagine he's still there at 7. What a studly card! And with all the strikeouts, he's the perfect Inmate. Expect a season-ending trip to the DL in May.

8. FFTs - Joc Pederson. The young phenom makes sense for the FFTs because he's a Dodger, but the FFTs are hurting at shortstop, and there are a couple out there. If you don't get Joc now, however, you'll never have the chance again. So if you've got an itch to grab the next Rookie of the Year, it doesn't hurt to have the Joc itch.

9. Goofs - Wade Davis. Good gravy, this guy's as good as Bettances! How the heck can relievers this good last this long?

10. Inmates - Collin McHugh. The HEAD INMATE was beginning to think he would get Betances AND Wade Davis, but will have to settle for ruining the career of McHugh instead.

11. Nads - J.D. Martinez. He doesn't really have a position to play, but plugging him into the DH spot every day will make the Nad offense formidable. Is this the year the Nads make the post season? Is this the Year of the Nads?

12. Buckeyes - Mookie Betts. It's something the likes of which we have never seen before: the Buckeyes are rebuilding with youth. Betts is a great place to start. So is Pederson if he should hang around, or if you're willing to roll the dice, Rusney Castillo. In the SOMWorld rookie draft, Betts went #2 overall behind Soler. But then... those guys are idiots.

13. Rhinos - Matt Shoemaker. There's a rumor the Rhinos are trying to trade this pick (and even pick #3) to pick up extra picks in the middle rounds, but Shoemaker would be a great pick for the Rhinos or anybody having this spot. If young starting pitchers are what you seek, Marcus Stroman or Dallas Keuchel would be good picks here, too.

14. Zaps - Carlos Carrasco. The Zaps are reloading for another chance to lose to the Snakes in the playoffs.

15. Sidewinders - Dee Gordon. Yes, the Snakes cut him just last year. And yes, it will be difficult to use a 1st to take him back. But as the Snakeman said, "How the hell is Kipnis a 4?!?"

16. Fungoes - Adeiny Hechevarria. The defending champs need to add some pitching to complement Kershaw and Roark, but until there is somebody to field the grounders up the middle, new pitchers aren't the answer. Hechavarria is a fine fielder with a lot of at bats and a fairly decent hitting card. And he gives the Fungoman another option just in case the Indians wait until Lindor is 30 before giving him his shot.

Draft Gems

The 2014 Draft List is now on the Archives page. While looking through it, I noticed a few gems. Diamonds in the rough. Whatever. Really good picks a year later. I've probably overlooked a guy here and there, but here are the ones I spotted by round.

22. Dozier, Nads
31. Ozuna, Inmates

112. Odorizzi, Warpigs

Round 8
114. G.Polanco, Warpigs
118. Lagares, Nads (The 4th Nad on this list! Nice draft, Nadman!)

Round 11
161. Petit, FFTs
172. Rutledge, Drillers

Lightning Round
212. Corey Dickerson, Zaps (WOULD have been the best pick of the Draft, but he was a cut.)
213. Duda, Rhinos (Also a cut)

If I missed anyone, feel free to let me know in the comments.

Web Site Wordle

I added a NASOMA Wordle to the front page of the website. The team names are sized by how long they've been in the league - which answers my daughter's question after seeing the word art I had made, "Why are the Nads so small?"

Monday, December 22, 2014


Here are two examples of what your homework assignments will look like (and many thanks to the Snakes and Buckeyes for being the first two to turn theirs in):

Sunday, December 21, 2014

I have updated the ARCHIVES and the LINKS pages on the website. I think I've updated everything, but if you find any bad links or screwed-up pages, let me know.

Congratulations to the Fungoes!

The Fungoes beat the Sidewinders in 5 games to win their second NASOMA Title. Hats off to the Fungoes.

Thanks to everybody who made this a fun and successful weekend. Thanks to those teams who made an appearance. The Drillers brought the Zaps, and the FFTs brought tamales (much more enjoyable gift than the Drillers brought). The Fungoes brought drinks and donuts. The Snakes brought beer... and then drank it. The Buckeyes and Drillers showed up and made a trade.

We made a pre-World Series trip to Twisted Root for burgers and fries. (Note: It was good.) Later that evening, the Zapper and Snakeman twisted each other's root.

He got weed! He got weed!

On a personal note, a big thank you to the FFTs for the Ole Miss CWS shirt.

The 2015 Draft Grid is now posted on the website. It is, I think, current with all traded draft picks accounted for. Let me know if you see any errors or omissions. I have gone to the rosters page and changed the names of your draft picks to represent the actual numbers of the picks. Use those new numbers when trading picks.

When is the Draft? Where is the Draft? When do the ratings come out? When do the cards get here? Will the Fungoes repeat? Will the Buckeyes survive their first ever effort at rebuilding? And, knowing the Buckeyes, will they make the playoffs WHILE rebuilding?

Stay tuned.

2014 NASOMA World Series

The top two seeds are facing off in the World Series. For the top seeded Fungoes, this is their 3rd trip to the finals. They lost to the Warpigs in 1995 and beat the FFTs in 2006. Both series went 6 games. The Sidewinders are in their 4th World Series. They beat the Zaps in 1998 in their first trip and then lost to the Drillers in 2001 and to the Warpigs in 2007. All three Snake World Series have gone 5 games.

Game 1 - @ WTF Field - Fungoes win 3-0. Clayton Kershaw threw a complete game shutout.

Game 2 - @ WTF Field - Fungoes win 3-2. Brandon Moss misplayed a grounder in the bottom of the 8th for a single & error, allowing the go ahead run to score. Matt Harvey went 8 innings for the win. David Robertson got the final out for the save.

Game 3 - @ Snakeville - Fungoes won 3-2. In a familiar theme, the Fungoes won (6th game in a row) while scoring exactly 3 runs (5 of the 6 games - the other time he scored 2) with the winning run being unearned (6th game in a row). Okay, that last one might be a bit of hyperbole, but the first two stats are accurate. Glen Perkins got the win in relief of Kris Medlen with Sergio Santos getting the save. Mike Trout struck out 4 times. The Fungoes are a win away from their 2nd title.

Game 4 - @ Snakeville - Sidewinders win 3-2 in 10 innings. Jay Bruce hit a walk-off homer in the 10th off of Kershaw. The Snakes are still alive!

Game 5 - @ Snakeville - Fungoes win 5-1. Matt Harvey the win. David Robertson the save. Eric Hosmer contributed a key 2-out, 2-run double. The Fungoes are the champs!

Fungoes World Series Ramblings:

Game 1
Kershaw throws a 4 hit shutout!  Jeff Baker hits a 1st inning home run.  Ryan Zimmerman and Matt Carpenter each bang out triples leading to 2 more runs.  Fungoes win it 3-0.  Kershaw struck out 11.

Game 2
Matt Harvey allows 2 runs over 8 innings and picks up the win as the Fungoes won this one 3-2.  Harvey also strikes out 11 Snakes.  Perkins, Roark and Robertson all got one out in the ninth with Robertson picking up the save.  Sidewinders held to 5 hits by Fungo pitching.  Fungoes winning run scored on a single and E3 in the bottom of the 8th inning.  Matt Carpenter smashed 2 doubles, scored a run and drove in a run for the Fungoes.

Manager note:  up two games to none I started to believe we might win the Series!  However, we were heading to the Snakepit now and the numbers are so weird at his park we were afraid to think beyond game 3.

Game 3
Fungoes scored 2 in the first inning after two out and no one on base.  Hosmer got the two run single to put us ahead.  Medlen cruised into the bottom of the fourth looking like Harvey but when he walked the leadoff hitter he got the quick hook!  Lopez allowed an immediate triple and, two outs later an E3 tied the score at 2.  Top of the 6th inning Ryan Zimmerman leads off with a smash to 3B which is booted.  One out later Salvador Perez singles Zimmerman to third.  Rajai Davis lofts the sac fly for the go ahead run.  Perkins (3 innings) and Santos (2 innings) shut down the Sidewinders the rest of the way for the win.  Perkins gets the win while Santos picks up the save.  Santos is now 1 and 1/3 inning from the floor.  Snakes are held to 4 hits in this one.  Fungoes manage 7 hits while both teams score an unearned run.

Game 4
Fungoes stake Kershaw to a 2-0 lead and the clubhouse idiots roll out the champaign......and of course, the Snakes rally with single runs in the 5th and 7th innings to tie!  It seems like destiny for Kershaw to get the win in extra innings so his manager leaves him in......for the walk off Home run with one out in the bottom of the 10th inning.  Kershaw takes a tough 3-2 loss.  

Game 5
Harvey on the mound for the Fungoes.  Snakes take a 1-0 lead in the second.  Just when Fungo ownership starts thinking what a disaster this is shaping up to be (when the Snakes fight their way back from 0-3 to win the series), Fungoes score 2 in the 3rd and 3 more in the 5th to cruise to a 5-1 win!  Fungoes win the Series!  Santos hits the floor in the 7th inning but what an amazing Playoff and Regular season he had, allowing just one run all year!

Interesting Fungo World Series Facts:
Steve Cishek awarded MVP for the previous playoff series vs Pigs doesn't make an appearance in the World Series.
Clayton Kershaw (1.48 ERA) throws two complete games in the WS including a shutout.
Fungo pitchers allowed 4.6 hits per game to the Snakes!
Santos picks up a save in the WS and finished the playoffs with 9 innings pitched, 1 hit allowed, 7 strikeouts and zero runs allowed!
Matt Harvey (2.03 ERA) picks up 2 wins in the World Series and is awarded the WS MVP

When do we draft?
On second thought lets wait as long as possible............

In our sun-down perambulations, of late, through the outer parts of WTF, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing "base", a certain game of ball...Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms...the game of ball is glorious.

Sidewinders vs Zaps

The Sidewinders beat the Zaps 4 games to 2 to advance to the World Series.

Gm1 @ Snakeville - Sidewinders win 6-5 in 11 innings. Danny Valencia had the game winning hit. Or, I think he did. Reading the Snake box score is not an easy thing to do. Jay Bruce had a grand slam in the 4th. Craig Kimbrel got the win.

Gm2 @ Snakeville - Sidewinders win 3-1. Jon Lester gets the win; Kimbrel the save. James Loney homered.

Gm3 @ Pasta Park - Zaps win 7-5 in 10 innings. Someone hit a walk-off 2-run homer off of Tyson Ross. It appears Ross allowed 3 homers to first blow the save and then lose the game.

Gm4 @ Pasta Park - Sidewinders win 9-0. Chris Sale and four relievers combined on the 4-hit shutout. Joe Mauer and Donnie Murphy both homered for the Snakes.

Gm5 @ Pasta Park - Zaps win 10-3. The Zap bats woke up and extended the series for at least one more game.

Gm6 @ Snakeville - Sidewinders win 4-3. The game was tied in the bottom of the 8th when Brandon Moss hit a sac fly to score pinch runner Billy Hamilton. Kimbrel, who had taken over in the top of the 8th, finished off the Zaps in the 9th. The Sidewinders advance to their 4th World Series.

Fungoes vs Warpigs

The Fungoes defeated the Warpigs 4 games to 2 to advance to the World Series.

Gm1 @ WTF Field - Fungoes win 5-4 in 10 innings. The Fungoes scored 4 in the 2nd inning off of Stephen Strasburg - including a 2-run homer by Ryan Zimmerman, but Clayton Kershaw couldn't hold the lead. The Pigs came back with a 4-run 5th highlighted by Darwin Barney's 2-run double. The Fungoes won it in the 10th when Mike Trout hit the 1-4 triple, fly to end the game.

Gm2 @ WTF Field - Warpigs win 12-3. Matt Harvey threw a complete game for the Fungoes, but could no longer make sound while passing gas by the 5th inning. Jose Fernandez relieved Wily Peralta with no outs in the 1st and threw 7 innings for the win. Yoenis Cespedes went 3-5 with a double and homer and 4 RBI.

Gm3 @ The BallPork - Warpigs 3-1. Adam Wainwright took a shutout into the 9th before surrendering a run. Michael Wacha got the last out for the save. The Warpigs take a surprising 2 games to 1 lead.

Gm4 @ The BallPork - Fungoes win 2-1. The Fungoes scored a pair of unearned runs, and Kershaw and company helped even the series. Sergio Santos made his first appearance, sailing thru 1.1 innings of shutout ball, but Glen Perkins got Melky Cabrera for the save.

Gm5 @ The BallPork - Fungoes win 3-1. Bret Lawrie doubled to lead off the game against Harvey, and it was the only hit the Pigs got. Harvey, Steve Cishek (who went 3 innings for the win), and Santos (who went the last 2 innings for the save) combined for the gem. The Pig defense cost them again as the Fungoes scored 2 more unearned runs. The Fungoes only had 3 hits. Fernandez threw 6 innings in relief and took the hard luck loss.

Gm6 @ WTF Field - Fungoes win 3-1. Mike Trout hit a 1st inning 3-run homer, and that was all the Fungo staff needed. Santos got another win in relief. Wainwright pitched well after the Trout homer, but again had no run support. The Fungoes advance to their 3rd World Series.

From the Fungoes...

Fungoes vs Warpigs
Game 1
Freddie Galvis scored the winning run when Mike Trout tripled in walk off fashion (yes yes triple 1-4 flyout 5-20, I know I know) in extra innings.  Galvis was on base via a HBP.  That was the only batter Warpig pitchers hit during the 6 game series.  It was also the only time Freddie was on base the entire series.
Game 2
Jose Fernandez came in to pitch after the Fungoes first 2 batters reached on a walk and a triple.  The first batter Fernandez faced was Daniel Murphy and he hit a sac fly to tie the game at 2.  Fernandez then pitched 7 innings striking out 9 Fungoes along the way picking up the win.  Harvey threw a complete game for the Fungoes (saving the bullpen) allowing 12 earned runs.
Game 3
Fungoes reliever Javier Lopez made his only relief appearance in this series when he started the bottom of the 6th inning.  He gave up a leadoff single and was quickly pulled.  Too late though, as he got the loss, so his playoff line is 1 appearance, 0 innings pitched, 1 hit allowed, 1 run allowed, and yes 1 loss and the dreaded ERA of INFINITY!
Game 4
In a 2-1 Fungo win Brett Gardner drove in the winning run for the Fungoes with 2 out in the 7th inning.  His 2 out single brought in Mike Trout with the winning run.  It was Brett Gardner's ONLY hit in the series as he hit a dismal .067!
Game 5
Matt Harvey (0-1 8.31 ERA) started this game and allowed a leadoff double that scored on an E6 (unearned).  That leadoff double was the Warpigs ONLY hit as Harvey - Cishek - Santos threw a no hitter for the following 9 innings (the hit occured before the first out of the contest).  Cishek recorded his second win.
Game 6
A Mike Trout 3 run home run in the first inning sealed the Warpig's fate as Fungoes pitchers scattered 5 hits  the rest of the way.  Santos picked up the win in relief finishing off the 5th inning and shutting down the Pig hitters in the 6th and 7th.  
Picking an MVP for this series was almost impossible; none of the Fungo hitters deserved the MVP and really the only pitchers that could be considered were Cishek and Santos.  Cishek receives the MVP based on his 9 and 1/3 shutout innings and 2 wins in relief.   In 24 innings, the Fungo bullpen allowed 3 runs (all earned) picking up 3 wins and 3 saves.

2014 NASOMA Playoffs Resumes Today

The dice will be rolling at the PigSty today. Come on by. The Warpigs and Fungoes will get started first - around 9:00. The Zapper will get here around noon (assuming the Driller Dude remembers to pick him up at the airport), and the Zaps and Snakes will get started then. The World Series will be some time tonight after their series finishes.

Any predictions? I'll say Fungoes in 4 over the inept Pigs and the Snakes in 7 over the Zaps. That series should be recorded. It will be entertaining. World Series prediction: Fungoes in 5.
