From: Portsmouth RI
AS teh Matrix baseball finals appraoch their final week end we have some real barnburners!
In the Matrix classic my Red Sawks are tied with Texans 5-5 I am in good shape in wins 7-2 and ERA 3.22 to 5.34, but Texans owns BA 342 to 314 and Ks 84 to 67, with the rest stil up for grabs. Texans has a 58-57 lead in runs, I have a significant but vulnerable 18-15 lead in Homers and 55-53 lead in RBI. Texans has a 6-4 ead in stolen bses and an 8-7 margin in saves. I have a decent but not comfortable lead in WHIP 1.23 to 1.49. This one is shaping up to go down to the late games Sunday! I am higher seed and will win a 5-5 tie. I have Freddy Garcia and Eric Bedard pitching tomorrow and Brandon Webb on sunday. Texans has Brad Penny tonight, Matt cain on Sat and Jason schmidt and woody Williams on Sunday. His Bullpen is Hoffman, Duchscher, Putz, Zumaya and Linebrink, mine is Saito, Borowski, Torres, Stanton and Timlin.
In the Pro league I have been inching my lead ahead - now a 16-7 margin over Aces, who has good leads in 5 categories, Runs 69-58, Stolen Bases 11-5, Losses 4-8, Holds 9 -2 and K/9 7.95 to 7.23. I have decent margins in 7 categories Hits 122-110, RBI 71-54, Total bases 224-202, BA 321-301, Innings 113.1 to 103, wins 8-4 saves 6-2. But that still leaves a lot room for Aces, however with me vulnerable in HR up 23-20, Hitter Ks 62-64 and errors 5-6 on the offensive side, and on teh pitching side I'm vulnerable in Pitcher allowed stolen bases 7-8 ERA and WHIP 1.33 to 1.40. Tougher but possible to catch are my 405 to 384 OBP and 589 to 552 SLG, and 4.21 to 4.54 ERA leads and my complete game from Carpenter last week. We are tied in pitcher allowed HRs. Movement on 4 of the close categories and taking HRS would me a shift from 16-7 to 12-12. Aces is teh higher seed and wold win a 12-12 tie! I have Garcia and Bedard in this like too, and Carpenter and Myers on sunday. Aces has Capuano Friday and Sheets and Felix Hernandez on Saturday and Willis on Sunday. His Bulpen features jenks, Otsuka, Wainwright, Zumaya and Linebrink. Mine has Francisco Cordero, Torres, Sct Proctor, Mike Stanton, Timlin and Joe Kennedy.
In the Weekly lead I have an 8-5 lead over the USS America oriles 8-5 with Offensive domination 66-53 in Runs, 21-13 in Homers, 72-55 in RBI, 11-1 in stolen bases, 226 -170 total bases, 349 to 287 in AVG adn 1.014 - 784 in OPS. USS America Orioles has teh big pitching edge 10-5 in saves and 5-1 in holds, 3.45 to 1.61 in K/BB and 8.88 - 6.49 in K/9. I have whittled away hi ERA lead and now I have a god but ardly safe lead in ERA 5-19 to 5.61 and we are tied with a meager 2 wins each. The Orioles are the higher seed so he will win a 7-7 tie. Its going to come down to pitching as it will require a real miracle to make up offensive category. i have ervin Santanan and Boof Bonser (luv that name ;) on Firday, and Matt Cain on sat and jason Schmidt Sunday - i lost Randy Johnson who will sit out his last start. Orioles have Lackey and Penny tonight, Bronson Arroyo on Sat and carpenter on sunday. His bullpen is Wagner , hofman, Saito and Linebrink. Mine is Borowski, Francisco Rodriguez, Torres and Ray.
Good luc this week end!
