Sons of Pitches

To be honest, we weren’t sure what to expect coming into our week 3 matchup against Slampieces. After running rampant in Live last year, they were knocked off their rocker after a season in Capital. Now that they were back in Live, would they come out with something to prove or with their proverbial tails between their legs?

More importantly, we wanted to figure out if we could determine the hierarchy of the team. Are the slampieces aware they are slampieces, or are some disillusioned into thinking they’re smokeshows? Are the slampieces actually valued higher than the smokeshows (they’re listed first in the team name)?

We were hoping to employ this bout of mental warfare during the match (hoping it would lead to their ultimate demise), but alas, we got drunk and forgot.

That being said, it was a good, close game throughout and in the end, Slampieces were able to hold onto their 1-run lead; largely on the play of their pitcher who sniped two of our base-runners at home-plate.

This week we play a Capital team in the Upper Deckers. Despite their not-so-impressive record and the fact that both Jay and Stephen picked Sons of Pitches to win in their weekly picks, we’re not about to take them lightly. We have to address some formation and organizational issues, but the hope is that by mid-season we should hopefully be a team worth paying attention to.
