A little Monday morning humor. Here's Baba Booey throwing out the first pitch at Citi Field this weekend.
Wow, I don't know what to say, other than I got absolutely worked. Hef, you are my daddy, there, I said it. Talk about taking an absolute dump this weekend. The Gorilla's hit .064 yesterday while the Daddy's showed total power down the stretch. What makes it even worse is that the Daddy's single-handedly catipulted themselves into first place of PG East and kicked PG into the cellar. It's a sad day in Mudville.
The Fighting Spitzers couldn't quite make it to the top slot of PG East, but summarily disposed of the Cornholers. The Cornholers made it a game at the end, picking up one category from Gut Check Friday, but it wasn't enough to get him out of the cellar of PG West. I will say this...Client #9 is probably the most balanced team in the league. How is T-Dub holding this team off?
The only thing that helps me accept the fact that I'm in last place is knowing that Fenway Ed lost by a score of 9-1. Probably the hardest part for Year2000! is that it was actually a pretty close game. Mr. Hackman put together a very good week, both on the mound and at the plate. Simply put, he was just a little better than Fenway Ed.
Big week for Rocky Mike, as he picks up his first weekly win of the season. Equally more impressive was the 12 stolen bases swiped by The Rockpile (Coco Crisp and Carl Crawford garnering 11 of the 12). The highly touted Longhorns drop a big matchup here, and hover at the bottom of PG East (above yours truly, of course).
Clark & Addison-6
The final score of the batting average category is indicitive of the overall matchup here. Clark & Addison finished at .3023 and The SwinGERS checked in at .3021. For what it's worth, The Ger should be proud that he made up so much ground. And the damage was limited, as he is only a half game back of PG East. Meanwhile, Clark & Addison remains in the three way horse race for PG East supremacy (1.5 games back).
I previously asked how T-Dub could be leading PG West. They're dominating, that's how. And this week was no different. The Cobras belted out an astonishing 21 home runs, 59 RBI's and posted a 2.38 ERA all in the same week. In Yankee Mike's defense, he didn't have that bad of a week. But when you're up against a juggernaut like T-Dub, a 7-1 drubbing is going to happen.
