Final Push for the Playoffs.

With only 1 playoff slot claimed (Belly Itchers), the remaining spots might not be filled until the final week of the season.  All though it makes it tough to make person plans, the push for the 2009 playoffs is full of excitement and intensity (Example; Diablos vs. Industrial game last Thursday night).  In order to really dissect this thing, let’s break it down into each league!

American League:

The American league has become quite the story for 2009. For most of the season, 5 teams remained within 2 games of first place. The division was anybody's to win. Each week the matchup's proved to be fun to watch and the final two weeks will be no different! The final two weeks schedule puts two teams on the cusp of the 3rd seed and the Fightin' Roo's have 5 games versus teams in front of them. The final shack down of the league will be nothing short of exciting.

Wildebeest: They currently rest on top of the AL division and have 5 games remaining; this week’s matchup against the Wonders, the final week versus the Chuckers and 1 makeup game with the Cure.  With the remaining games, it appears the Wildies are on the verge of locking up their first American league division pennant.  With 2 wins vs. the Wonders, the Wildies will secure a Playoff berth.

Snowsuit and Icey Road: Currently tied for first, but 1 game back in the loss column.  Their remaining games are versus the Fightin’ Roo’s and One Hit Wonders.  This weeks “Game of the Week” matchup with the Roo’s should play a huge role in their final season ranking.  Barring a team melt down, SIR should be playoff bound in 2009.

Industrials: The Indies have the hardest round to the playoffs in the American league.  They still have 2 games vs. the Monday Night 40’s, 2 games vs. the Lemons, and 2.5 (finish the 18 inning game) with the Roo’s.  Currently they are only 1 game back in the loss column from 1st place, but making that jump with their remaining schedule should prove to be impossible.  It’s their playoff berth to loss and they will have plenty of opportunities to defend it.

Fightin’ Roo’s: Although they are currently tied for 3rd, they are sitting with 9 losses. In order to claim that 3rd seat, they will need to win the remaining 2.5 games versus the Industrials.  If they can win the final 5 games of the season, they could jump into the 2nd seat; their postseason chances lie solely in their own hands.  The outcome of the games versus the Snowsuit can drastically chance the entire postseason landscape.

Gentlemen: They are not math mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but with Bryan Jennings injury, it will take a lot of losses from the two teams in front of them to have a chance to slide into the playoffs; should be a favorite for the T.S.F.C if they don’t make it to the 3rd seat.

National League:

Even though the National league does not feature the same drama as seen on Monday nights, they still have a some teams jocking for position in the final weeks. The Belly Itchers secured their spot last week (congrats guys), while the 40's remain close and the 3rd seed still somewhat up in the air. The 3 seeds should be figured out after the dust settles at week end, but final positioning could carry into the final week.

Belly Itchers:  Clinched Playoff berth.  With two more wins this week, will clinch their second Division title.

Monday Night 40’s: An extremely favorable final two weeks of the season (Weasels and Loose Nuts).  They do however still have 2 makeup games with the Industrials.  Their magic number for the second seat is 3.  And 2 more wins will secure a playoff berth.

Diablos: 4 games remaining, 2 with the Cure and 2 with the Gentlemen.  They still have a possible run for second place, but should be more concerned about Lemons who are quickly gaining on their heels.  As long as they don’t drop more then 2 of the final 4 games, they should be able to lock up the 3rd slot which they have occupied most of the 2009 season.

Lemons: Mike Raber has the throttle to the floor and has his Lemons putting together a final playoff push, but the late start might become their undoing.  Currently 3 games back in the loss column of the third and final playoff spot, they can’t afford any more losses.  Their remaining schedule has them facing the Industrials and the Weasels.  The Lemons playoff hopes could come to an end this week if they don’t manage a sweep versus the Industrials.  Defiantly the T.S.F.C favorite should they miss the big dance.

Tom Sellick Festival of Competition:

Loose Nuts: With a split against the Cure last Thursday night, the Loose Nuts have put themselves in position to possibly snake into the T.S.F.C.  The Weasels and Loose Nuts have 2 remaining games to be made up from the first week of the season, if the Nuts win both, they will bump the Weasels into last place and out of the tournament.

Shanghai Chuckers:  Became the first team of 2009 to secure a slot in the tournament.

The Cure: With one more loss, the Cure will clinch #2 seed in this years T.S.F.C. Their remaining schedule has them playing the Diablos this week and the Belly Itchers next. Depending on what they can do against the Diablos, they might fend off the inevitable until week 12.

Wildebeest: They currently rest on top of the AL division and have 5 games remaining; this week’s matchup against the Wonders, the final week versus the Chuckers and 1 makeup game with the Cure.  With the remaining games, it appears the Wildies are on the verge of locking up their first American league division pennant.  With 2 wins vs. the Wonders, the Wildies will secure a Playoff berth.

Snowsuit and Icey Road: Currently tied for first, but 1 game back in the loss column.  Their remaining games are versus the Fightin’ Roo’s and One Hit Wonders.  This weeks “Game of the Week” matchup with the Roo’s should play a huge role in their final season ranking.  Barring a team melt down, SIR should be playoff bound in 2009.

Industrials: The Indies have the hardest round to the playoffs in the American league.  They still have 2 games vs. the Monday Night 40’s, 2 games vs. the Lemons, and 2.5 (finish the 18 inning game) with the Roo’s.  Currently they are only 1 game back in the loss column from 1st place, but making that jump with their remaining schedule should prove to be impossible.  It’s their playoff berth to loss and they will have plenty of opportunities to defend it.

Fightin’ Roo’s: Although they are currently tied for 3rd, they are sitting with 9 losses. In order to claim that 3rd seat, they will need to win the remaining 2.5 games versus the Industrials.  If they can win the final 5 games of the season, they could jump into the 2nd seat; their postseason chances lie solely in their own hands.  The outcome of the games versus the Snowsuit can drastically chance the entire postseason landscape.

Gentlemen: They are not math mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but with Bryan Jennings injury, it will take a lot of losses from the two teams in front of them to have a chance to slide into the playoffs; should be a favorite for the T.S.F.C if they don’t make it to the 3rd seat.

National League:

Even though the National league does not feature the same drama as seen on Monday nights, they still have a some teams jocking for position in the final weeks. The Belly Itchers secured their spot last week (congrats guys), while the 40's remain close and the 3rd seed still somewhat up in the air. The 3 seeds should be figured out after the dust settles at week end, but final positioning could carry into the final week.

Belly Itchers:  Clinched Playoff berth.  With two more wins this week, will clinch their second Division title.

Monday Night 40’s: An extremely favorable final two weeks of the season (Weasels and Loose Nuts).  They do however still have 2 makeup games with the Industrials.  Their magic number for the second seat is 3.  And 2 more wins will secure a playoff berth.

Diablos: 4 games remaining, 2 with the Cure and 2 with the Gentlemen.  They still have a possible run for second place, but should be more concerned about Lemons who are quickly gaining on their heels.  As long as they don’t drop more then 2 of the final 4 games, they should be able to lock up the 3rd slot which they have occupied most of the 2009 season.

Lemons: Mike Raber has the throttle to the floor and has his Lemons putting together a final playoff push, but the late start might become their undoing.  Currently 3 games back in the loss column of the third and final playoff spot, they can’t afford any more losses.  Their remaining schedule has them facing the Industrials and the Weasels.  The Lemons playoff hopes could come to an end this week if they don’t manage a sweep versus the Industrials.  Defiantly the T.S.F.C favorite should they miss the big dance.

Tom Sellick Festival of Competition:

Loose Nuts: With a split against the Cure last Thursday night, the Loose Nuts have put themselves in position to possibly snake into the T.S.F.C.  The Weasels and Loose Nuts have 2 remaining games to be made up from the first week of the season, if the Nuts win both, they will bump the Weasels into last place and out of the tournament.

Shanghai Chuckers:  Became the first team of 2009 to secure a slot in the tournament.

The Cure: With one more loss, the Cure will clinch #2 seed in this years T.S.F.C. Their remaining schedule has them playing the Diablos this week and the Belly Itchers next. Depending on what they can do against the Diablos, they might fend off the inevitable until week 12.

Final Push for the Playoffs.

With only 1 playoff slot claimed (Belly Itchers), the remaining spots might not be filled until the final week of the season.  All though it makes it tough to make person plans, the push for the 2009 playoffs is full of excitement and intensity (Example; Diablos vs. Industrial game last Thursday night).  In order to really dissect this thing, let’s break it down into each league!

American League:

The American league has become quite the story for 2009. For most of the season, 5 teams remained within 2 games of first place. The division was anybody's to win.

Industrials: The Indies have the hardest round to the playoffs in the American league.  They still have 2 games vs. the Monday Night 40’s, 2 games vs. the Lemons, and 2.5 (finish the 18 inning game) with the Roo’s.  Currently they are only 1 game back in the loss column from 1st place, but making that jump with their remaining schedule should prove to be impossible.  It’s their playoff berth to loss and they will have plenty of opportunities to defend it.

Fightin’ Roo’s: Although they are currently tied for 3rd, they are sitting with 9 losses. In order to claim that 3rd seat, they will need to win the remaining 2.5 games versus the Industrials.  If they can win the final 5 games of the season, they could jump into the 2nd seat; their postseason chances lie solely in their own hands.  The outcome of the games versus the Snowsuit can drastically chance the entire postseason landscape.

Gentlemen: They are not math mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but with Bryan Jennings injury, it will take a lot of losses from the two teams in front of them to have a chance to slide into the playoffs; should be a favorite for the T.S.F.C if they don’t make it to the 3rd seat.

National League:

Even though the National league does not feature the same drama as seen on Monday nights, they still have a some teams jocking for position in the final weeks. The Belly Itchers secured their spot last week (congrats guys), while the 40's remain close and the 3rd seed still somewhat up in the air. The 3 seeds should be figured out after the dust settles at week end, but final positioning could carry into the final week.

Belly Itchers:  Clinched Playoff berth.  With two more wins this week, will clinch their second Division title.

Monday Night 40’s: An extremely favorable final two weeks of the season (Weasels and Loose Nuts).  They do however still have 2 makeup games with the Industrials.  Their magic number for the second seat is 3.  And 2 more wins will secure a playoff berth.

Diablos: 4 games remaining, 2 with the Cure and 2 with the Gentlemen.  They still have a possible run for second place, but should be more concerned about Lemons who are quickly gaining on their heels.  As long as they don’t drop more then 2 of the final 4 games, they should be able to lock up the 3rd slot which they have occupied most of the 2009 season.

Lemons: Mike Raber has the throttle to the floor and has his Lemons putting together a final playoff push, but the late start might become their undoing.  Currently 3 games back in the loss column of the third and final playoff spot, they can’t afford any more losses.  Their remaining schedule has them facing the Industrials and the Weasels.  The Lemons playoff hopes could come to an end this week if they don’t manage a sweep versus the Industrials.  Defiantly the T.S.F.C favorite should they miss the big dance.

Tom Sellick Festival of Competition:

Loose Nuts: With a split against the Cure last Thursday night, the Loose Nuts have put themselves in position to possibly snake into the T.S.F.C.  The Weasels and Loose Nuts have 2 remaining games to be made up from the first week of the season, if the Nuts win both, they will bump the Weasels into last place and out of the tournament.

Shanghai Chuckers:  Became the first team of 2009 to secure a slot in the tournament.

The Cure: With one more loss, the Cure will clinch #2 seed in this years T.S.F.C. Their remaining schedule has them playing the Diablos this week and the Belly Itchers next. Depending on what they can do against the Diablos, they might fend off the inevitable until week 12.

Final Push for the Playoffs.

With only 1 playoff slot claimed (Belly Itchers), the remaining spots might not be filled until the final week of the season.  All though it makes it tough to make person plans, the push for the 2009 playoffs is full of excitement and intensity (Example; Diablos vs. Industrial game last Thursday night).  In order to really dissect this thing, let’s break it down into each league!

American League:

The American league has become quite the story for 2009. For most of the season, 5 teams remained within 2 games of first place. The division was anybody's to win. Each week the matchup's proved to be fun to watch and the final two weeks will be no different! The final two weeks schedule puts two teams on the cusp of the 3rd seed and the Fightin' Roo's have 5 games versus teams in front of them. The final shack down of the league will be nothing short of exciting.

Industrials: The Indies have the hardest round to the playoffs in the American league.  They still have 2 games vs. the Monday Night 40’s, 2 games vs. the Lemons, and 2.5 (finish the 18 inning game) with the Roo’s.  Currently they are only 1 game back in the loss column from 1st place, but making that jump with their remaining schedule should prove to be impossible.  It’s their playoff berth to loss and they will have plenty of opportunities to defend it.

Fightin’ Roo’s: Although they are currently tied for 3rd, they are sitting with 9 losses. In order to claim that 3rd seat, they will need to win the remaining 2.5 games versus the Industrials.  If they can win the final 5 games of the season, they could jump into the 2nd seat; their postseason chances lie solely in their own hands.  The outcome of the games versus the Snowsuit can drastically chance the entire postseason landscape.

Gentlemen: They are not math mathematically eliminated from the playoffs, but with Bryan Jennings injury, it will take a lot of losses from the two teams in front of them to have a chance to slide into the playoffs; should be a favorite for the T.S.F.C if they don’t make it to the 3rd seat.

National League:

Even though the National league does not feature the same drama as seen on Monday nights, they still have a some teams jocking for position in the final weeks. The Belly Itchers secured their spot last week (congrats guys), while the 40's remain close and the 3rd seed still somewhat up in the air. The 3 seeds should be figured out after the dust settles at week end, but final positioning could carry into the final week.

Belly Itchers:  Clinched Playoff berth.  With two more wins this week, will clinch their second Division title.

Monday Night 40’s: An extremely favorable final two weeks of the season (Weasels and Loose Nuts).  They do however still have 2 makeup games with the Industrials.  Their magic number for the second seat is 3.  And 2 more wins will secure a playoff berth.

Diablos: 4 games remaining, 2 with the Cure and 2 with the Gentlemen.  They still have a possible run for second place, but should be more concerned about Lemons who are quickly gaining on their heels.  As long as they don’t drop more then 2 of the final 4 games, they should be able to lock up the 3rd slot which they have occupied most of the 2009 season.

Lemons: Mike Raber has the throttle to the floor and has his Lemons putting together a final playoff push, but the late start might become their undoing.  Currently 3 games back in the loss column of the third and final playoff spot, they can’t afford any more losses.  Their remaining schedule has them facing the Industrials and the Weasels.  The Lemons playoff hopes could come to an end this week if they don’t manage a sweep versus the Industrials.  Defiantly the T.S.F.C favorite should they miss the big dance.

Tom Sellick Festival of Competition:

Loose Nuts: With a split against the Cure last Thursday night, the Loose Nuts have put themselves in position to possibly snake into the T.S.F.C.  The Weasels and Loose Nuts have 2 remaining games to be made up from the first week of the season, if the Nuts win both, they will bump the Weasels into last place and out of the tournament.

Shanghai Chuckers:  Became the first team of 2009 to secure a slot in the tournament.

The Cure: With one more loss, the Cure will clinch #2 seed in this years T.S.F.C. Their remaining schedule has them playing the Diablos this week and the Belly Itchers next. Depending on what they can do against the Diablos, they might fend off the inevitable until week 12.

Final Push for the Playoffs.

With only 1 playoff slot claimed (Belly Itchers), the remaining spots might not be filled until the final week of the season.  All though it makes it tough to make person plans, the push for the 2009 playoffs is full of excitement and intensity (Example; Diablos vs. Industrial game last Thursday night).  In order to really dissect this thing, let’s break it down into each league!

American League:

The American league has become quite the story for 2009. For most of the season, 5 teams remained within 2 games of first place. The division was anybody's to win. Each week the matchup's proved to be fun to watch and the final two weeks will be no different! The final two weeks schedule puts two teams on the cusp of the 3rd seed and the Fightin' Roo's have 5 games versus teams in front of them. The final shack down of the league will be nothing short of exciting.
