October 27, 2002

So it all comes down to this: After last night's dramatic win for the Angels, it comes down to one game to determine World Series Champions and SLPL Champions. There were no big changes to the Overall SLPL Race nor the Playoff Standings.Who will win it all? Stay tuned for all the drama!

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 26, 2002

The following e-mail was received from Stampeding Bovines owner Sam Livernois, who currently leads the Overall SLPL Race, on my analysis yesterday:

Subject: Clarification of Status
 
Jeff Brown now needs two home runs to take the lead. If Kent strikes out two more times he will also need two home runs.
 
This is as good as the World Series itself. All I can hope for is a 1 to 0 game in which Bonds hits the winning home run in game six-FAT CHANCE!

Thank you, Sam, for thtat clarification! And good luck to all remaining hopeful SLPL owners for these last games of the year!

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 25, 2002

Are you kidding me?!?! Just yesterday morning, when I had noticed that Troy Glaus had propelled Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons into the race for Overall Champion, I was cheering about the fact that we might have a race between the Johnson's and Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines. Then last night, Jeff Kent hit two home runs to propel Rube Furrow's Santa Lechuga Bus Wreck from 7th place overall to 3rd place overall. Now, we have a phenomenal three-way race between the Bovines, who are just trying to maintain the lead without any unique players; the Bus Wreck, who put on an impressive power display with Jeff Kent; and the Johnson, who lost a little ground to the Wreck with Glaus' three strikeouts last night. Here's the deal: A single home run by Kent puts the Wreck ahead of the Bovines. A single home run by Glaus puts the Johnsons in the lead.

In Playoff Standings action, the Magic Johnsons are still kicking butt and taking names.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 24, 2002

Troy Glaus homered, making yesterday's top eight teams mucho happy since they've pretty much have cemented their lead in the Playoff Standings. Happiest of all is Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons, who actually moved into third place in the Overall Standings on the home run. Jeff needs one more home run out of Glaus to move into Overall lead. Whoa! Don't look now! We have ourselves a race!!!

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 23, 2002

Bonds homered ... SLPL owners barely care. Livan Hernandez struck out three ... Jimi Hicks' Fat Bastards appreciate the 30 points. Angels trounce the Giants in San Francisco ... Giants fans lament. No changes in the major standings ... or even the minor ones. That was your day in World Series action Tuesday night.

October 22, 2002

No playoff notes today after yesterday's off-day. Pedregoso Ríos is taking the day off!

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 21, 2002

Sunday's World Series action made those SLPL owners with Russ Ortiz sad ('cause he gave up a dinger and didn't strike anybody out), those with Jeff Kent happy and sad ('cause he homered, finally, but also struck out twice), the one owner with Felix Rodriguez sad (sorry, Suze, 'cause Felix gave up a home and didn't strike anyone out), everybody with Barry Bonds ambivilent ('cause, ya know, everybody has him!), and Angels fans ecstatic ('cause they won a hell of a World Series game in dramatic fashion ... Paul Martin, Matt Martin, were you there?). Oddly, with all the points surrendered and gained Sunday night, all the leaders for all the races remain unchanged. (On the upside, updating the website was easy.)

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 20, 2002

Scott Brown's White Man's Overbite, sitting in 2nd place of La División Anaranjada before the World Series began, bumped Pedregoso Ríos' Pepino Monos from the top spot after Troy Glaus' two home run night in the first game of the World Series. With Glaus' performance, the Overbite also jumped from 18th place to 7th place in the Overall Standings, from 23rd place to 10th place in the Hitting Standings, and from 8th place to 5th place in the Playoff Standings.

Meanwhile, Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons maintain their lead in the Playoff Race as they too had Glaus. (In fact, teams with Glaus make up the the top six in the Playoff Race; teams without Glaus and without Bonds, who also homered last night, make up the bottom two of the Playoff standings.) In La División Violeta, the Johnsons moved ahead of James Gallagher's The Dudes and are now just 133 points from overtaking Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros

Note: Webmaster (using the term
"master" loosely, of course) Ríos made a mistake in his humongous standings worksheet and hasn't been crediting Ken Ottmar's KO Kid with the correct number of points in the division races. Now that Ríos has fixed the error, the KO Kid has taken over 2nd place in the La División Anaranjada, bumping the Pepino Monos to 3rd place and Lon Gallagher's Charlie Don't Surf to 4th place. The Kid is also now in 5th place in the Hitting Race. Ríos apologizes for the mistake. Ríos also hopes like hell that he's not made this mistake anywhere else!

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 19, 2002

And now, with the World Series starting today, we're going to look at the remaining races, The Big Two ... Les Grands Deux ... Die Grossen Zwei ... I Due Grandi ... Los Dos Grandes ... the SLPL Playoff Race and the SLPL Overall Race.

SLPL Playoff Race

ANALYSIS: Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons currently hold a 20-point lead over Sue Kaschalk's Cardwheels in the SLPL Playoff Race. But during the World Series, when hitter home runs are worth 100 points and pitcher strikeouts are worth 10 points, Jeff's lead is tenuous at best. Working in his favor, though, Jeff has Barry Bonds (who doesn't?) and Troy Glaus. That means he'll maintain his lead over Sue (since she has the same players) and everyone else that has Glaus. As mentioned in an earlier update, Suzie Rochellle's Sue's Z's has a decent chance of taking the crown with Russ Ortiz and Felix Rodriguez on the roster. Lon Gallagher's Charlie Don't Surf has an outside chance if Jeff Kent hits two dingers during the World Series. And Jimi Hicks' Fat Bastards need to coax at least ten strikeouts from Livan Hernandez to take the SLPL Playoffs honors.

THE FAT LADY IS wondering why she agreed to join the opera amidst all this confusion.

SLPL Overall Race

ANALYSIS: I've gotta be honest: I don't think anyone has a legitimate chance of beating Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines in the SLPL Overall Race. I mean, c'mon. Rube Furrow's 8th place Santa Lechuga Bus Wreck is 333 points behind the Bovines. Sure, the Wreck has Jeff Kent on the roster, but what are the odds that he Kent will hit four dingers during the World Series? And if you think the odds are slim for the Wreck, the odds are even worse for Scott Brown's 18th place White Man's Overbite, who's 498 points behind the Bovines. I suppose the Overbite's Troy Glaus could hit five out during a seven game series without a single strikeout. But really! Sure, it'd be fun to watch someone go on a tear like that during the most important games of his life, but let's not put too much fantasy in our fantasy baseball league!

THE FAT LADY IS taking her first big breath before singing for Sam's Bovines.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 18, 2002

As we head into the the World Series, which starts Saturday, let's continue our analysis of the SLPL races. Today we're looking at the Hitting race, Pitching race, and Bonus Points race ...

Hitting Race

ANALYSIS: In the SLPL race to be crowned Hitting Champion, Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros lead Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines by 14 points and Javier Adriano's Los Huaraches by over 110 points; unfortunately, neither the Bovines nor the Huaraches can make up any ground in the World Series. The only teams within 500 points of the Guerreros that have World Series hitters besides Barry Bonds are Joe Livernois' Santa Lechuga Bus Wreck (251 points behind with Jeff Kent on the roster), Ken Ottmar's KO Kid (-370 with Troy Glaus), Lon Gallagher's Charlie Don't Surf (-397 with Kent), Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons (-407 with Glaus), and Scott Brown's White Man's Overbite (-447 with Glaus).

THE FAT LADY IS singing an ode to the competition. Unless Jeff Kent goes on a tear during the World Series, Walker's got the Hitting Championship wrapped up.

Pitching Race

ANALYSIS: In the SLPL Pitching race, B.J. Surratt's Osamahead Buzkashi and Kelsey Brewer's Rent-a-Team are tied for 1st place and looking to be co-champs. The only team within 100 pitching points of the would-be co-champs is Mirna Adriano's Chaussure (34 points behind with Russ Ortiz), but the Chaussure is a real threat as long as Ortiz doesn't give up a home run. At 10-points apiece, Ortiz needs just four strikeouts to move Mirna past B.J. and Kelsey.

THE FAT LADY IS not sure who she'll be singing for just yet.

Bonus Points Race

ANALYSIS: Pedregoso Ríos' Pepino Monos and James R. Hicks' Scratch-N-Spit Naturals, tied at the top of the Bonus Points Standings, will be crowned Bonus Points Co-Champs unless Russ Ortiz, Felix Rodriguez, or Livan Hernandez hit a home run during the World Series. (I think we can all safely say that Jeff Kent and Troy Glaus will not throw any strikeouts.) With home runs worth 80 points and grand slams worth 200 points during the World Series, a dinger by one of these three pitchers would make the Bonus Points standings go berserk.

THE FAT LADY IS preparing to sing for the Monos and Naturals but knows she may have to change her tune if the inexplicable happens.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 17, 2002

Looking at the Division races ...

La División Rojo

ANALYSIS: Lucy Juarez's Pancho's Sandalias has a comfortable 120 point lead over the nearest competitor, Javier Adriano's Los Huaraches. Can Russ Ortiz make up the difference for the Huaraches? It depends. At ten points per strikeout, Ortiz would likely need two starts during the World Series to get 12 strikeouts. And, he definitely can't give up even a single home run.

THE FAT LADY IS walking toward the dressing room after a large seven-course dinner. Lucy should win this one, but it could get interesting.

La División Anaranjada

ANALYSIS: La División Anaranjada has the best race going into the World Series. Pedregoso Ríos' Pepino Monos currently hold 1st place but don't have anyone besides the largely-shared Barry Bonds on the roster. Meanwhile, Scott Brown's White Man's Overbite is just 31 points behind the Monos; a single home run by Overbite Troy Glaus will propel Scott ahead of Ríos. Lurking in 3rd place is Lon Gallagher's Charlie Don't Surf, 19 points behind the Overbite and 50 points behind the Monos. A single home run by the under performing Jeff Kent could propel Lon into the Division Championship. Stay tuned.

THE FAT LADY IS stuck in traffic, wondering where the hell the opera house is. It's too close to call.

La División Gris

ANALYSIS: Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines sits 318 points ahead of Dave Jannusch's Beat Some Ash, who can't make up any ground since Ash doesn't have any unique (non-Bonds) players on the World Series roster. In fact, only Mirna Adriano's Chaussure (Russ Ortiz) and Vern Fisher's Taliban Rangers (Troy Glaus) have non-Bonds players, but they're too far behind to be a real threat to the Bovines.

THE FAT LADY IS strolling onstage. Unless she stumbles and falls into the orchestra pit in a bizarre, hell-freezes-over-type accident, La División Gris belongs to the Bovines.

La División Verde

ANALYSIS: Vince Livernois' Andes Warhol of Fame 2002 holds a microscopic one-point lead over Brian Styers' Fort Ord Fiends. But with each team in the La División Verde having only Barry Bonds on the roster, the Warhol of Fame stand alone at the top.

THE FAT LADY IS singing in La División Verde.

La División Azul

ANALYSIS: First off, my apologies to Rube Furrow's Santa Lechuga Bus Wreck for not originally listing Jeff Kent on the Wreck's playoff roster. (I forgot to add him after Furrow's late-season trade.) Now that Kent's on the Wreck's roster, the team loses 34 K points but are now in a position to catch up to Richard Livernois' Zapata's Zapatos in La División Azul. That means a single home run by Kent during the World Series will move the Wreck ahead of the Zapatos. No one else in the division is a threat.

THE FAT LADY IS fighting with another fat lady backstage. No one knows who will actually do the singing.

La División Violeta

ANALYSIS: It'd take four home runs by Troy Glaus during the World Series for Jeff Brown's 3rd place Magic Johnsons to overtake Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros from the top of La División Violeta. Everyone else is out of contention.

THE FAT LADY IS onstage waiting for her queue. Walker will win this one.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 16, 2002

There were no games Tuesday so everything remains constant in the SLPL except for the speculation about how things will end up. For example, Chuy "Mexico's Peter Gammons" Chicle provides this analysis about a dark horse playoff contender:

Rios: Here is who I see as the playoff winner: Sue's Zs! My logic is simple. Her team is the only team with three players in the World Series - Bondz, Ortiz, and a third, altho a long shot, Felix Rodriguez! Don't forget, you read it here! Go get 'em, Sooz!

Thanks for your predictions, Chuy! It'll be fun to see if Sue's Z's can actually jump from 17th to 1st during the World Series. And I promise that I won't dissect your predictions after the fact like I did for the real Peter Gammons' 2002 predictions in today's "Quote of the Day."

UPDATED 11:45 CST: The SLPL Commissioner, Rube Furrow, checks in with his in-person reactions to the Giants' big win last night. Check out his reactions here. Also, the current leader in the Overall Standings, the slightly irrationally fearful Sam Livernois, checks in with thoughts about how his Stampeding Bovines might be actually lose the Overall Championship. Check out his paranoid analysis here.
--
The San Francisco Giants have officially won a World Series spot. And Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines have all but wrapped up the Overall SLPL Championship. With the Cardinals being eliminated -- and with Matt Morris and Albert Pujols being the lone players on Josh Walker's 2nd place Chorizo Guerreros that Sam didn't have -- the Bovines can rest pretty comfortably that they're going to win a slew of cash very soon. Frankly, I don't have time right now to figure out if it's official that the Bovines have won, but with only three hitters and three pitchers left in the SLPL, it doesn't seem like any team is going to be able to legitimately compete for the Overall Championship.

But hey, there are plenty of other championships to be awarded. In the Playoff Standings, Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons are top dogs, Sue Kaschalk's Cardwheels are in second, and Kevin Klinkhamer's Thunderdome are in third. As for the other races, check back here before the World Series; I will report on all the remaining races in the SLPL.

Two editorial thoughts about the teams that were eliminated in this round of the playoffs before I wrap up today's notes: One, I'm sure glad I don't have to watch the Cardinals carrying around a Darryl Kile jersey -- or Kile's kid for that matter -- ever again. Was I the only one grossed out by the fact that they kept milking their traumas for motivation? And that Fox kept giving coverage to it? It was compelling for about a minute when they clinched the playoff spot ... it's been progressively putridly maudlin ever since.

Two, I sure am glad we don't have to listen to the sing-songy Fox announcers acting like they're clever by saying that the Twins kept avoiding "contraction," even against the A's. Guess what? The Twins were eliminated -- not contracted -- by the Angels. Now shut up about it already, will you?

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 14, 2002

In Sunday action, not much changed for SLPL owners. No big homers, a few strikeouts here and there, but nothing major. Oh, Kevin Klinkhamer's Thunderdome inched their way back into the top three in the Playoff Standings, but everything else is pretty much the same.

Congrats to SLPL Commissioner Rube Furrow, who can personally witness the San Francisco Giants clinch a World Series berth Monday night. I dunno how he scored the tickets, but rumor has it that he's got some serious dirt on Dusty Baker. The only question is why Rube didn't parlay that dirt into tickets for the rest of the SLPL ownership groups.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 13, 2002

Nearly everyone in the SLPL gained 50 points when Barry Bonds hit a McCovey Cove home run against the Cardinals, but only George Dunne's Dingers got 50 points for Jim Edmonds's dinger against the Giants. While the Dingers jumped from 36th to 10th place in the Playoff Standings Saturday night, Dunne would probably be happier if he had Barry Bonds on his roster, too.

Russ Ortiz gave up two dingers while striking out three Saturday, leaving Javier Adriano's Los Huaraches, Mirna Adriano's Chaussure, Karina Granados' Puros Cuero, and Susie Livernois' Sue's Zs 25 points lighter.

In other news, Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons are still in 1st in the Playoff Standings, Sue Kaschalk's Cardwheels are still in 2nd, and Ken Ottmar's KO Kids are still in 3rd. And, once again, there was no change to the leaderboards in the Overall Standings and Overall Hitting Standings ... Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines still lead overall while Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros still lead all hitters.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 12, 2002

It's amazing what a difference a single home run makes during the playoffs. With Troy "Mister Clutch" Glaus' dinger against the Twins, the Angels are up two games to one in the Division Series and several SLPL teams have made major leaps in the Playoff Standings. Jeff Brown's Magic Johnsons moved from 4th place to 1st place; Sue Kaschalk's Cardwheels jumped from 10th to 2nd; Ken Ottmar's KO Kids jumped from 11th to 3rd; Scott Brown's White Man's Overbite moved from 20th to 5th; Vern Fisher's Taliban Rangers climbed from 26th to 7th; and, Jimi Hicks' Fat Bastards leapfrogged from 26th to 9th. Meanwhile, Kevin Klinkhamer's Thunderdome fell from 1st to 4th; Lisa Brown's My !@$%@! Team dropped from 2nd to 6th; and, Lisa Gallagher's The Balls went from 3rd to 7th. Check out the Playoff Standings here.

Glaus' homer changed the face of the closely fought La División Anaranjada as White Man's Overbite has wrestled 2nd place from Lon Gallagher's Charlie Don't Surf. Scott "I Won Everything Last Year" Brown now has his targets set on overtaking Pedregoso Ríos' Pepino Monos, who are leading by a measly 31 points.

There was no change to the leaderboards in the Overall Standings or the Overall Hitting Standings ... Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines leads overall while Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros leads all hitters.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 11, 2002

Almost everyone lost points Thursday night with a slew of strikeouts. Jeff Kent, Barry Bonds, Jim Edmonds, Albert Pujols, Tino Martinez, and J.D. Drew all whiffed. It's just a crying shame that Wayne Giesen's G-Stringers and Mirna Adriano's Chaussure traded Rich Aurilia earlier this year; Aurilia homered twice for the Giants.

Kevin Klinkhamer's Thunderdome barely holds on to a slim two-point lead over Lisa Brown's My !@$%@! Team in the Playoff Standings.

Even though Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines lost 10 hitting points with Bonds' two strikeouts, Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros lost 20 hitting points with the addition of Pujols' two strikeouts. Livernois maintains his Overall Standings lead while Walker holds onto his Overall Hitting Standings lead.

PLAYOFF NOTES
October 10, 2002

On the strength of J.D. Drew's pinch hit home run Wednesday, Kevin Klinkhamer's Thunderdome jumped from 12th place to 1st place in the Playoff Standings.

Despite losing 40 points when Matt Morris gave up two home runs to the Giants, Josh Walker's Chorizo Guerreros gained almost 20 points on Sam Livernois' Stampeding Bovines in the Overall Standings after Albert Pujols hit a dinger for the losing Cardinals. With Pujols' homer, the Guerreros wrestled first place of in the Overall Hitting Standings from the Bovines.


Bovines Regular Season Champs!

09/29/2002

SANTA LECHUGA (SLPL News) - Sam Livernois, the notably apathetic owner of the Stampeding Bovines, was named as the 2002 SLPL Regular Season Champ Sunday night. In a statement released by Commissioner Rube Furrow, "the Stampeding Bovines have won the regular season jackpot. Owner John (Sam) Livernois (aka Homer Bedlow) paid little or no attention to the operations of the league or his team most of the year, yet managed to pull off this stunning victory. Congratulations, Sam. I guess." Click here to read Rube's full statement, which also recaps of how playoff points will be awarded and gives a quick overview of a couple of tough looking teams.

Rube Makes Rule Change to DL Trades

09/25/2002
