It was the top of the 7th, the pitcher, Vazquez hit the next batter and was then removed from the game. He threw 127 pitchess in 6.2 innings. He still got the win and Grebeck went 0-4.
That’s right, ladies, it’s true. The Hairys, as improbable as it seems, woke up this morning to find that they are still PTP champions. How long it takes for another team to man up and take the title from them remains to be seen, but if recent playptp.com activity is any indicator, the rest of the managers are content to remain curled in the fetal position whimpering for their mothers. And oh yes, I DID just say that.
ps. Manager Ockey urges ptp fans everywhere to check out Comissioner Utley’s recent blog post on his long and storied history with books. As you all know, Utley has a singular gift for writing – he manages to effortlessly and simply convey his thoughts and instill inspiration without even trying. I read that thing and I was scrambling for the nearest book just so I could start to try and be like Bri. Thank you Bri. Thank you Ted. For that 2021 Championship that you gave me.
#1 seed in the playoffs with my 13 inning win against Jerry last night.Â Only the 2nd time I’ve finished #1, the first time being last season.
You guys remember when I went all anal on the Glaus vs. Castilla debate?
Wow, I remember back in the day when I had the time to be all aggro-anal about statistical posts by Jerry. Ahhhh those were the days.
But check out comment #3. Awesome.
Omar Vizquel in the only infielder to have an errorless season, 2019

He played the remainder of the season error-free and all 4 playoff games. 2016 was the year of Bart’s only division championship, Young was his shortstop.
