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

Game of the Week- Pirates @ Blue Claws
Jun 1, 2012, 7:55 am

"Looking forward to finally doing GoW... but it is obvious you were saving the best for last. I mean, do we really need to keep playing the season? No one is close to my team, the rest of the season is just a formality."

--Sean Greeley, Blue Claws captain.

"Sean's Blue Claws defeated my Pirates several weeks ago by a score of 13-12, and we are determined to DESTROY them this Sunday. When we do, I hope and trust Sean and I will still be friends!"

--Bob Weinfeld, Pirates Skipper.

Temple Shalom tournament team wins the Title in scintilating fashion!
May 19, 2012, 7:28 pm

Congratulations to the tournament team, now being sponsored by the commissioner, for winning the league's 1st open tournament title in history. The Team prevailed 21-1 and 16-1 advancing by "runr ruling" the opposition in the 1st 2 games. Game 3 featured the league representative advancing 10-4, through the winner's bracket, to play the pretournament favorite Banditos. In the title game, the Banditos took a 4-0 lead after one. The Shalom "Rangers" scored 7 in the 2nd and stretched the lead to 12-7 entering the bottom of the 4th. The Banditos only left 2 minutes on the clock while tallying 10 runs to put the league at a 17-12 deficit. It was at this point, as visitors, that the Shalom league had a truly shining moment, by scoring 15 runs! All players in the title game had a hit before an out was recorded in taking a resounding 10 run lead for the 27-18 title clinching victory.

The amazing sequence of performers, in order of appearance in the final inning, were Aaron Weintraub, David Tennyson, Marc Biesman, Kyle Casper, (sponsor- commissioner) Wayne Casper, Daniel Klevanosky, Justin Reed, John Banta, Bob Davis, Scott Lawrence, and JJ Eusay, before aaron kept expanding the lead on sequence # 2!

Other performers for the team included Sean Greeley, Andrew Williams, and John  Hauf.

There were phenomenol displays of pitching from Davis/ Banta; strong fielding around the horn, but especially Klevanosky, Reed, Tennyson, Williams, Biesman, Lawrence and Eusay.

Hitting was well represented across the board, but of note was Reed's HRs/ RBI production, excellent distribution/ contributions from all the above players (including a 10-12, 2 bbs from the last batting captain)!


Most importantly, all the players represented the league in an amazing fashion and displayed cohesive comraderie! Thanks to all the players whole heartedly!
