    Well, June sucked. Talk about regression toward the mean.

    9-18 record. 4.15 runs scored per game, 5.22 given up. Pythagoras still hates us...predicted 10.7 wins, for the month, so even if we are getting more from our players than we should expect, Pythagoras is sliding us right on back. On the season, we are 44-39, with 399 runs scored and 315 against, which projects to 50.24 wins.

    At least June games were all outside the divsion.

    Cheers,
    Wayne

    Okay, so the first time I wrote this season, I was lamenting my team's lack of offense. It got worse before it got better, as we bottomed out at last in the league in runs scored. However, that has rebounded much better than I expected to a Team OPS of .781 (3rd) and and a respectable 11th in total runs scored (only seven runs away from 7th place). With a 4/5 man pitching staff that continues to operate at peak performance (2nd in Team ERA), and a bullpen that is avoiding too many costly errors, we've risen to first place in Boer and a franchise record high at 49-35.

    I think the team is over-performing slightly, but it comes at a good time during interleague play. My goal was to win 90 games, and we only need to win 6 more games than we lose the rest of the way. Very possible.

    Payton Copperfield is in another stratosphere right now, but otherwise, I think we can compete with anybody.

    Thanks but I do't agree, assuming Grove St gets into the playoffs, they are still the favorite because of Stewart.

    Grove St needs to find some offense or we won't make the playoffs.

    Hah, funny, but I don't see Sugarwall passing you. Meanwhile, Cinnabar is probably co-favorites with your team because of their pitching as well.

    My underdog team is 13-8 so far against the Herd and just finished taking 2 of 3 from Copperfield. Maybe we're not supposed to win, but don't tell my team that. I'm very happy with their play.

    Make that 20-8 against the Herd. Eight straight wins have me thinking we can do better than 90 wins. All good things must come to an end, but I would hope we will be better than .500 the rest of the way.

    This is fun. I should have done this before...lol.

    Boudreau and Smith are hitting over their heads, but your pitching/defense combo is very dangerous. I'd actually put the top 3 title threats as Balmers/you/DrMeyer.
