2012 Veteran's Game Tomorrow
Jun 16, 2012, 1:12 pm

The annual TSSL Veterans Game will be held tomorrow at 10 a.m. on field 9. Captaining the two squads will be Larry Silverman, manager of the defending champion Rangers and John Unell, manager of last years runner-up Knights and this years Threshers. This is almost certain to be a barn burner, so come out and support our managers.



Game of The Week (June 24)- Bee's vs Giants
Jun 15, 2012, 9:19 am

The first ever "Flex" game of the week will pair two teams battling for playoff positioning in Division 2. Fein's Bees are currently ties for 2nd place with the Giants hanging just one game back. This should be a tightly contested game unlike the 17-2 route the Giants gave Fein's squad on April 29. Here are some quotes from the managers of both sides.


John Hauf- Giants manager

"My Giants are currently sitting in the 4th playoff spot with a bunch of teams trying to overtake us. This GOW against the Bees is essentially a playoff game. The winner of this game will be in great shape heading into the final weekend of the season and the loser will be fighting for their playoff life. The mini's are a hard route to take to a Championship."


Scott Fein- Bee's Manager

"The Bees are gearing up for our playoff run. The Giants are nipping at our heels, just one game back in the loss column. We are looking to avenge our recent loss
to them in this first ever flex game."

This one should be a great one! Good luck to both managers!

Game of the Week- Royals @ Yankees
Jun 6, 2012, 9:10 am

This weeks Game of the Week pits Larry Lachman's Royals visiting the Yankees, managed by Larry Farin. Here are a few comments from the two skippers:

Larry Lachman---

Thoughts on the season:
"It's been a challenging season; the Royals have played most of the season with anywhere from 30 - 40 percent of the team that was drafted in February on the IR list. Regardless of where we finish in the Division 2 race, I'm excited about the playoffs because we should be able to field our entire team come July."
Thoughts on my team:
"With everyone healthy, the Royals have proven to be virtually unbeatable. We have a great group of guys who love to play softball. By the time the playoffs begin everyone should be healthy again, and the Royals will be a formidable opponent once again."
Thoughts on the GOW:
"The GOW has turned our featured games into an event. The Royals / Yankees storied rivalry dates back to 1976, and there is no better venue to showcase this game than the GOW."
Larry Farin---
"The Yankees and Royals have always had a friendly rivalry since Chris Chambliss' homer and George Brett and his pine tar. The Shalom League Yanks are rolling, winning 4 of their last 5 games with amazing athletes, winning attitudes and guys that should be GQ models. We look forward to our special game vs. the Royals!"

The Schlock Returns
Jun 4, 2012, 9:11 am

You can always find what the Schlock has to say here. Fortunately, he stays quiet most of the weeks.


Schlock has been moved to write a new article. Now that we are ¾ done this year, it’s time for some observations and a review of prior predictions. First I want to complement the current administration in putting together a terrific season-GOW has been in large part a wonderful new addition. League organization has come a long way and continues to improve as we move forward…my hat is doffed to the Commish-Dr Casper!!!!  I do hope that triple headers are never to be seen again. I am for improved umpmanship as I have found some unfortunate spottiness in the judgers. I don’t like the longer distance to the bases….I do like the parity this year-8 teams are 1 game from 500 on either side, no team has yet to be eliminated from the regular play offs. Two teams have dominated their respective divisions but after that 4 teams are within 2 games of 2nd in Div 1 and 5 teams are within 2 games of second place in Div 2-true parity and a real race to the wire. I think this is the best collective group of Captains we have had in TS History!!!!


Let’s review the tale of the tape on Shlock pre-season picks:


Div 1:Missed large on those mighty Red Sox-this team has played excellent defense and used timely hitting to surprise this prognosticator. 6th place prediction is dead wrong as they will finish 1st. The Unell pick of 16-10 looks decent as they have a good shot at 2nd. 3rd was Rangers and that’s exactly where they stand. 4th and 5th also dead on with Injuns and Tigers. Flip flop Yuck Dogs and Owls and you have 7/8 finishers as predicted-I give myself an A- in this division-basically 7/8.


Div 2: Once again the Blue Claws have kicked me in the teeth with their 1st place and gaudy record-a big bust from yours truly.  Scrap is currently in 2nd and the pick their was 5-another swing and miss-however if they finish 1-7,  I would be right on……have to call this a bust. Yanks picked second are two back in third-not terrible but a miss.  3rd and 4th perfection with Giants and Bees. Again 7th and 8th was toss up with Mets in 7th and Buckos bringing up the rear-they are flip flopped and mired in the 7-8 spots-I’ll take credit for those picks…..so probably 5/8 and a solid B in this division.


All done in good fun and hope you have all enjoyed the banter-please know that any betting based on this information is strictly prohibited and discouraged. I wish you all the best as we round 3rd and head home as the playoffs loom-playoffs-did he say playoffs!!!! Yes I did…remember to hit em where they ain’t and stay healthy.


Yours, The Monger
