Several Craydawgs Enjoying Career Years

June 21, 2013

HIGHLAND PARK–It takes a lot of luck to wear the BEML crown, and New Jersey’s Craydawgs have thus far enjoyed enough to land them in first place, seven points up on second place Villagers (60-53). Injuries to expensive ace David Price and the high-priced slugger Ryan Braun have been overcome by career years from cheap sources including Chris Davis (.329/20/47/0), Carlos Gomez ($0.75/.318/12/37/14), and pitchers Max Scherzer ($0.75, 10 wins, 3.08/0.91 with 116 Ks in 96 IP), Anibal Sanchez ($0.50, 6 wins, 2.76/1.15 with 101 Ks in 82 IP) and Shelby Miller ($0.25, 6 wins, 2.12/0.99 with 78 Ks in 68 IP).

Chris Davis is a Craydawg Davis started on the Dawgs’ bench but has worked his way into the MVP discussion.

The Dirty Dogs announced they are bowing out of the 2013 race to look toward rebuilding for 2014, and they have lots of talent on offer for the right price (ie cheap talent), including Joey Votto, David Wright, Jacoby Ellsbury and Justin Verlander.

Fish Are Off The Hook

FARMINGDALE–Despite being hampered by injuries to stars Jose Reyes, Ian Kinsler–and now Matt Kemp–the Barracudas were able to swim upstream yesterday… all the way into first place:

130606 standings

The Vicious Fish catapulted two grand slams (Kyle Seager and Paul Goldschmidt) among four homers, with 14 RBI and a pair of swipes from Jose Bautista and picked up 3.5 points on the day.

In other BEML news, free agent acquisition Dominic Brown slugged his second homer in three games since joining CMLY, and Kents terror Troy Tulowitzki went 5-for-5 with two homers (.349/15/48).

Smokin’ Kents

June 5, 2013

OLD WESTBURY–The George Kents had a big day yesterday and they are suddenly part of a four-team race, just 6.5 points behind current frontrunners the Craydawgs. The Kents picked up four homers, including two from Yoenis Cespedes (the Human Centipede) (nos. 10 and 11 on the year) with 13 RBI and three steals (two from Nate McLouth, who now has 10 in under 100 ABs with the Kents). Add in three quality starts (Zimmermann, Minor and Griffin), and the Kents were up 2.5 points on the day.

In other league news, defending BEML champs Snowmen shook up the lineup, giving the quick hook to slugger Josh Hamilton, Jimmy Rollins and ace Cole Hamels, and welcoming back Jered Weaver from injury.
