JWRL Standings: May Update

Filed under: General — Awrr @ 10:30 am

Twenty-six games into the season, the Lords' potent offense has carried them to a 3 game lead over the Derrek Lee-less Cover Farm. The Whiskey Jacks have been surging since the deal that brought them Miguel Tejada and Eric Chavez.

Even though offense may dominate early in the season, a cluster of teams with strong pitching sit just behind the top three. Early dumping aside, the race is still wide open as we enter May.

Well, maybe unless you're Null Set. Hampered by slow starts (Dan Johnson) and injuries (Todd Helton, Ben Sheets, C.C. Sabathia, etc.), the Set hasn't been able to get off the ground.

JWRL Standings

Note: The different W% numbers indicate partial wins and reflect actual JWRL standings as of May 2. There isn't really a four way tie for 6th, but as far as being only 26 games into the season it is effectively a four way tie.

A couple technical notes in case any of you are interested: WordPress doesn't seem to allow tables much functionality in either the WYSIWYG or in raw HTML, so I was forced to use a picture. Hope that works out alright.

Also, WordPress has been way slow lately. This was recently posted though:

Hey guys, I just wanted to apologize for the slowdown and system errors the past week or so. I'm on WordPress.com constantly and the problems have been incredibly annoying.

So it's a "We're fixing it ASAP" kind of thing, and hopefully the blog will run more smootly in the near future.

Walewonders: Dumping in April?

Filed under: General — Awrr @ 2:01 pm

Chris Shelton is on pace for 112 homeruns. The JWRL defending champ is sitting in 16th place. The New York Mets are winning 80% of their games.

But one thing stands out. Not a tenth of the way into 2006, teams are dumping for 2007 and beyond. In the last week, four trades have gone down generating a salary gap of over $32 per deal. The Hustlers/Jacks blockbuster created a gap of $65.

Asked to comment, shortstop Miguel Tejada had this to say: "I wanted to be dealt to a competitive team, and then I didn't want to be dealt to a competitive team. I don't really know what I want, but I'm looking forward to competing, or not, with the Whiskey Jacks."

Closer Brad Lidge was more committal. "I really thought we had a good chance of putting a nice season together for the Big Tymers. I can't believe I was dealt for a guy named Pie. I've been on some bad April teams–things didn't seem that bad." Lidge did admit that he was happy to be reunited on the Sorcerers with former teammate Roy "The Wizard" Oswalt.

With three teams apparently dumping already, who knows which will be next? Outfielder Willy Taveras certainly doesn't: "I've moved around so much in the last two seasons, you'd think that someone would have figured out that my name is not spelled 'Tavarez.' I just don't know what to expect any more."

The owners of the Hustlers, Big Tymers, and Spleen were unavailable for comment. One source close to Mr. Pierce, owner of the Hustlers, mentioned that Pierce was looking forward to cold beer and an exciting summer movie season, specifically the third X-Men movie.

And the JWRL season continues.
