MML2006 WEEK 2 RESULTS

Blogged by Commish as MML2006 Week 2 — Commish Tue 18 Apr 2006 11:00 pm

First off, I would like to apologize for not getting this up until Tuesday. Too much of a combination of work, Easter beer, winning $50 in a poker game (where $60 total was paid and the other $10 was mine), and breaking beds kept me plenty distracted on this holiday weekend. I will try to do better next week.

Manager of the week: Krueg

Team of the week: Happy At Hooters
Surprise of the week: Happy At Hooters
Player of the week: Albert Pujols
Pitcher of the week: Chris Ray

MATCH-UP #1: MHD VS. PATE

The long awaited rematch of last year’s championship did not disappoint. Pate jumped out to an early lead and was able to hold MHD off in a match-up that came down to the last few games of the week. This may be becoming the MML’s version of the Yanks and BoSox.
Result: Pate wins 5-4

MATCH-UP #2: STRODE VS. KRUEG

After some early week worries (and by early, I mean Tuesday morning), Krueg rebounded from a devastating loss and beat the crap out of Strode. Strode put up a solid week across the board as well, but Krueg seemed to always be one step ahead.
Result: Krueg wins 7-1

MATCH-UP #3: ANDY VS. TIM

After a promising first week, Andy put Tim back in his place with a decisive win. Neither team had a spectacular showing, but Andy’s week was plenty to carry him on to a week 2 victory.
Result: Andy wins 7-2

MATCH-UP #4: LUKE VS. GIBBY

Thanks to POW Albert Pujols, Gibby was able to fend off Luke. A classic match-up of pitching vs. hitting almost ended in a direct split of one team getting all the offensive stats, and the other getting all the pitching stats. Gibby’s off to a good start, and as long as Pujols stays on pace to hit over 100 HR’s this season, he should remain a contender all season long.
Result: Gibby wins 6-4

MATCH-UP #5: JIMMY VS. PAUL

Another tight match-up proved that pitching can win. Jimmy’s dominant staff carried him to victory in this match-up, despite recording 0 saves. Oh, how far Paul has dropped since his glory days. My question is, who will win a championship first? The Cubs… or Paul.
Result: Jimmy 6-4

MATCH-UP #6: DICKMAN VS. DUKE

Duke did just enough to squeak out another win and remain among the top teams in the league. Although beating Dickman hasn’t been impressive since he somehow made it to the championship a couple years ago, a win is a win, and Duke is proving he can put up the offensive stats to compete with anyone and some solid ERA’s and WHIP.
Result: Duke wins 5-4

MATCH-UP #7: PEDRO VS. LACKEY

These two better get used to seeing their names next to each other because if they keep this up, they’ll have the first two picks in next year’s draft. The good news is that at least when it’s Pedro’s turn to pick we’ll be waiting 5 hours for 2 picks rather than having to wait that long for each individual pick from the lovable trombonist.
Resulg: Lackey wins 6-4

MATCH-UP #8: MANTIS VS. PHIL

Well, if you look at Phil’s ERA of 6.66, I think it’s a good indication that the Cubs will not win the World Series again, and that Phil will not win an MML championship again. Mantis put together a stellar pitching performance for the week, but if he doesn’t get some offense together soon, he’ll be sitting in the middle of the pack at best… again.
Resulg: Mantis wins 6-3
