Week 2 Picks -- Close at 4pm

Picks are closed!!

Crazy upsets last week... a few better match-ups this week. Get your picks in by 4pm on Thursday, and remember that you ARE gambling by submitting your picks. The winners are responsible for collecting from the losers.

So a player on "Debauchery" (which is Ty's current team in WAKA) had this to say at Yard of Ale last week: "Our league sucks. There's like 9 teams out there and I don't know any of the people playing this season!"

To be fair... they have 10 teams. But that kind of review isn't going to be growing their base any time soon.

That sounds like some inside information...

FRANK said...

Yo,

Had an idea about field setups.
Instead of segregating all teams like we did in Waka last season, I was thinking we could put all three home plates behind second base and face each respective field, left, center, right and have everyone sit together right behind second. It sucks that we only get to socialize with one or two teams during the game. I would have a sketch of the layout, but I am at home and dont have a scanner.

Frank, without a sketch it never happened!

Chandler said...

Yeah I'd have to see a sketch of that. I don't think there is enough room angle-wise. Think of how you put 4 baseball fields together. Take one away like you're suggesting. You need 270 degrees of grass MINIMUM to accomplish your plan. But the outfield grass doesn't really curve that way, thus one field would be playing a decent portion in the dirt.

I ran into Will from Pick Me Up earlier this week and he told me there was no one at the bar last week and he will probably make a trip over to YOA this week...hahaha.

Ligers v. Pitches Be Crazy

Well, according to facebook, Homebase Heros [sic] is now known as Pitches Be Crazy. While the name change gets my stamp of approval, I will miss calling them Homework Hobos and mocking their spelling. Homework Hobos doesn't make sense, I know, but neither does people picking the Ligers and that's going on all the time here. So I'll take the newly anointed Pitches Be Crazy to win and bring the picks page back to reality.

*****GAME OF THE WEEK*****

Superbad v. Alcoballics

Quite a matchup between the first and third place teams in the DPT Power Rankings. Teneille had a green card party this "winter" (I love Tampa weather), but when do Frank and Sandra get theirs checked? I figure there's a chance their foreign because they apparently live 800 miles away from the kickball fields. Seriously, driving an hour each way to get to kickball? That's dedication, Holmes. So Superbad gets the nod here, unless the Ballics have someone flying in from somewhere that I don't know about.

TBN v. Bunt Chasers

Bunt Chasers: new team name, same awful results. Even TBN is a clear favorite against Top Shelf/Dollar Wells/Bye Week/Bunt Chasers/I hope this is the final team name so I don't have to type all these slashes anymore.

Off Constantly v. I'd Shock That

This is a bit of a revenge game for the OC, as there are quite a few IKTers on I'd Shock That. That was the loss that stung the most last year, which makes sense because it was our only regular season loss. Our offense was on fire to start the game last week, but our defense allowed 6 runs in one inning, or the same total we allowed all last regular season. Expect the D to be more cohesive this week, and expect an OC win.

Side note, check out www.noonebeatsoc.com if you'd like to keep up with our latest happenings. It's not just me posting these inane ramblings and Crum posting youtube videos anymore, so there's some entertaining stuff now.

Another side note, when are we playing "name that team?"

Shockers v. Growlers

This would have been the game of the week if it was the Shockers of three seasons ago against the Growlers of last season. Talk about two disappointing losses. I think the Shockers are only about two-thirds focused on the Growlers this week and one-third thinking about the cinnamon ring. Thusly (channeling BEARDFACE), I'm picking the Growlers to withstand the Shocker's sloppy attack and derive great pleasure from this win.

We need more COMMENTARY. I usually don't post any because I blow what little load I have on the Power Rankings... but let me whip something together (despite being busy as shit today):

Pitches Can't Spell - I play on the Ligers, therefore I know how bad our base-running can be. And a team that struggles to score runs can't afford sloppy base-running. Daywalker Justin is most active at night, so he'll probably turn into a bat and shit guano all over the field. That's worth a few runs, at least.

Alcoballics - Dave "Ace" A. posted the other day some cryptic message about line-ups. I haven't asked Kevin "Gary" H. to decipher his partners code... but it probably means I shouldn't go against the 'Ballics. Plus, if the red guys lose and I owe drinks, I'm making Alison sleep in the other room with our flea-ridden dog. Sigh...

THEE BEER NUTS - Why is that horrible team chasing bunts? Just pick them up, get it to the pitcher and allow the girl to have first base. Oh... did you all realize that one of the "Fast Fuckers" is now on TBN? They're going 2-0 and we'll all be forced to question our existence.

Off Constantly - They put together their summer championship team. I'd Shock That put together some bad Karma and sprinkled K. Stone on top of it. He's a good dude, and you all should meet him, but he won't put wins on the board (maybe in the bed).

Growlers - The Vaginas gave it up too easily last week. Expect that shit to be on lock-down, with a tampon string subtly hanging out. Shockers get shut-out again.

Michael said...

Sorry fans, gonna be an abbreviated version of GorecHate this week. Damn work making me do uhh WORK!...

Pitch Please- Yes the Ballics took em to the woodshed last week 6-0. but it was 5-0 when they decided to put a guy pitcher in who is actually DECENT! Genius move there just too little too late. Plus u went against the ballics defense which is always strong.

Ballics- Stop refering to us as Bal-lics or Balls! We dont wear black shirts nor kill any kittens. Here's your 3pm inside info: Its a themed game so hopefully we some some entertaining costumes out there. I know other inside info (like how many innings I'll be pitching) but I want to drink for free this week so I'm not gonna share.

TBN- Oh Geez TBN is gonna be 2-0. Nate will then talk to Fall 2010 Shocker Rob about how great their 2-0 teams are.

OC- Hey everybody check out the OC's Blog! Pleeease! Oh also check out usfapartments.com and Ty's Blog too while you're at it. Christ Stuart Smalley thinks you guys need a hug. Now go to the mirror and say "I'm Good Enough, I'm Smart Enough, and Doggone It, People Like Me!"

Growlers- The Vagina gets angry when its receives the Shocker and has to share the pleasure with the anus. ASS Kicking ensues.. Growlers win.
