Newsletter for games through 7-6-2014

CLEVER COMMENTARY:

From Rick Wynne: “Frustrating, this game is !  My Braves scored a TOTAL of 9 runs this week in ASFBL, losing 3 one-run games, 2 of which were extra innings.  After starting 20-5 in ASFBL, my Braves have been 24-33 since !  In my favorite Scoresheet league, a live-draft league in Atlanta, I started 11-21 and have been 39-12 since !  Wish I could combine my hot start in ASFBL and my hot finish in NL Hank Aaron !  59-17 would be so cool !!  “

Andy Somers, taking some lighthearted exception to my pro-Fullerton editorializing, notes that his alma mater, Vanderbilt, won the CWS this year.  Go Vols!

COMMON COMMENTARY:

Mostly on hold this week, as I’m traveling.  However, big congrats to Josh Clark’s Royals, who had the only 6-0 week, and the Greg Acthten’s Angels, who are playing the way most folks feel the actual Angels should have been playing all year.  The Pirates, Cards, Nats, and Bosox also had big weeks, and the Tigers moved back into first place in the AL Central.  The Yanks made a big move in the AL East.  Back in full verbosity next Wednesday.  Enjoy the all-star weekend!
