Another fabulous Bodega Weekend kicks off 2017 Redwood SOM season

He premeditated me!

  8. Mets (10-13), .435, 6.5 GB
  9. Cardinals (6-18), .250, 11.0 GB

Those are the standings after another fabulous Redwood SOM Draft Weekend!

First, our 2015 champion Reds presented the Chico Escuela Trophy to our returning World Champion, the Yankees, for the second consecutive year:





And then, regrettably, this shameful display of a supposedly impartial commissioner threatening intentional harm to a member franchise:




And now the 2017 season is under way! First out of the gate are the Giants, who earned the Bodega Curse colors by posting a record of 18-8 on the weekend. But many teams are right on their heels, with the Red Sox, Athletics, Rockies and Pirates all within five games of them. Meanwhile the Cardinals pause to again take stock of a very tough start to the young season.

Great time, as always!





Next action: Monday, March 6, at BearCat's. Let's roll 'em!

Yankees Repeat as 2016 season draws to an exciting close

Ditto!


Yankees repeat as world champs, defeating Pirates 4 games to 2

(PE)Dee Gordon MVP with .550 batting average over six-game series


Just three weeks ago or so, on November 21, things looked bleak for the defending champion Yankees. The Reds had already clinched their division—and their wild card hopes were fading quickly. Already in the clubhouse at 44-36, they watched as the Giants and Red Sox met for a five-game series to conclude the regular season. The Yankees’ only path to the post-season at that point was for the Giants (41-34 at the time) to go 3-2 against the Red Sox (42-33) in those final five games, which would result in a three-way tie for the wild card at 44-36. Any other outcome and the Yankees were done. 

We know what happened, of course. The 3-2 outcome happened, opening the door a crack. And the Yankees stormed through. First they took the round-robin tie breaker to claim the wild card, beating both the Giants and Red Sox in the first round. Next they swept the Moe Division champion Reds 4-0 in the divisional playoffs, setting up a World Series rematch with the Pirates. 


For the second year in a row the Yankees defeated the Pirates 4 games to 2 in the championship series, completing a post-season run (including the round-robin) of 10-2. Dee Gordon claimed MVP honors after batting .550 in the World Series, although many Yankees could have a valid claim to those honors.

Congratulations to the Yankees—again! Great season everyone. See you at Christmas time in February!
