Oops / Who's Now Part 5

It turns out that
1) I missed a pretty interesting ballgame yesterday, and
2) I overslept the bus/train combo I needed to catch to get to Fraser today.

As much as that sucks, I guess I'll use the opportunity to post the previously promised round of Who's Now.

Last 4 Results:

Eddie Lantigua def. Alan Blotcher, 5-2
JC Huguet def. Julie Wetherbee 4-3
Wilton Veras def. Slugger 5-2
K-O def. DJ Mattox 7-0

Elmira Bracket

1. Miles Wolff vs. 16 Jarrett Stawarz

1. Miles Wolff

Pro: He's' the boss. He runs this shit, yo. He's also been around forever, has been named one of baseball's most influential people, and operates two pretty successful leagues.

Con: Uncle Miles is a cheatin' S.O.B. who killed the lights against the Spirit in '04 and brings in cheap-shot artists like the one who broke Davilla's arm in the playoffs.

16. Jarrett Stawarz

Pro: Spirit PWNED him many times

Con: He's not good at all; he's on New Haven

-

8. Chris Farley vs. 9. R.C. Reutmann

8. Chris Farley

Pro: Awesome pitcher; has post-CanAm League success in single-A

Con: No longer in the Can-Am League; he's now in the Yankees organization

9. R.C. Reutmann

Pro: Operates the Worcester Tornadoes, a successful team in this league. Probably has lots o' bling bling.

Con: WAHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!! THE SPIRIT ARE MEAN!!!! WAHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH I SHOULD HAVE A TALK WITH THE LEAGUE!!!! WAHHHHHHH!!!! I'M A SANCTIMONIOUS ASS!!!! WAHHH

-

4. Rich "El Guapo" Garces vs. 13. Joey "See-yak" Siak

4. El Guapo

Pro: One of the most beloved Red Sox of the 90s, Draws lots of attention and brings crowds wherever he goes

Con: Fat MLB reject who would eat all of the food at a party

13. Joey Siak

Pro: He's a sneaky-good pitcher and a good guy. And based on what my girlfriend told me, the ladies love him too. (ladies, is this true? bah, I don't think there are many female readers of this blog anyway)

Con: He's underrated, which is a good thing generally, but maybe not when you are voting on someone's oh-so-intangible NOW-ness.

-

5. Ken Ray vs. 12. John Kelly

5. Ken Ray

Pro: MLBer. Very notable. One of the best pitchers in CanAm history. A really interesting character.

Con: His comments about Fraser did not endear him to Spirit fans or the organization. Also, he's definitely history at this point.

12. John Kelly

Pro: Easily the best pitcher in Spirit history and a seemingly awesome guy.

Con: Never could quite cut it at the next level.

OK... vote or die.

1. Miles - Godfather of indy baseball, y'all

8. Farley - Anyone who manages to escape Orange, MA deserves a vote

13. Siak - El Guapo should be dominating this league and isn't

12. Kelly - Indyball HOFer

Again, my apologies for f_cking up the clinching thing. Was so fixated on Quebec's ouster that I forgot to consider the 2nd half thing.

I'm a 9 year old girl and read this blog. I don't know about the other girls but I Siak isn't my favorite. Alex Trezza is the best!

Ya Joe,you missed a great game last night. Luckily I was able to get there for the last 1.5 innings of play. =] Now....onwards to the voting!

1) Miles Wolff--Even though I still say he should be iompeached,or give up ownership fo the teams in the leagues he comisons,etc I must say he's done so much good for indy ball. He'll win this with no votes for Jaret and,I predict,will win the next round in another landslide.

8) Farley--Great guy,greay pitcher......he's got great potential.

13) Siak--Gotta agree with the wood man

12) Kelly--SAME AS ABOVE......great guy,tremendous pitcher. I'd love to have him still.

PS: I can bet I know which girl that anon poster is ;]
