NEWS AND NOTES:
Not too many major developments this week:

- TT2.0 returns from his suspension for starting a brawl the week before.

- The Oats' bats continue to show more life, hitting 16 home runs over the past two weeks (with duff accounting for 5) after putting up just 22 in the first two months of the season.

- Rams Fanny won Bensell Conference Rookie of the Month for May, his second month in a row.

- P.D.X. is hitting an impressive .323, but has just 9 walks in 276 plate appearances this year. That's some Ozzie Guillen level lack of discipline.

- mister d returns from the DL this week after recovering from a fractured rib.

- I feel like there needs to be a separate "Bronto injury report" from the injury report for all other players combined. Anyway, Brontoburglar suffered a pinched never in his neck and will be out until the middle of next week. Here is Bronto's injury history going back to last year:
[+] spoiler

- Moreta has surged to a 7-1 record, pitching at least 8 innings while giving up 1 run or less in each of her last 4 starts.

- Gunpowder has hit 7 home runs in his last 11 games and continues to lead the league with 24.

WEEK 11 UPDATE

Image Burlington Sports Frogs
The Sports Frogs powered through a full week of games to keep close pace with Middlesex for the division lead. With a couple of series against weaker teams, they'll have a prime opportunity to make a move.

- This Week: 5-2

- League Power Ranking: 5th
- Next Week: at Manassas (3 games), at Woonsocket (3 games)

- This Week: 2-4
- Season: 36-32 (2nd in Div; 2 GB)
- League Power Ranking: 11th
- Next Week: at Boise (3 games), st Yakima (3 games)

WEEK 12 UPDATE

Image Burlington Sports Frogs
The Sports Frogs continued to chug along with a 4-2 week, but remain one game back of Middlesex for the Northeast Division lead. Next week will feature a full slate of seven games, with a four-game series vs. Dundalk and then one vs. Middlesex that will hopefully provide the opportunity to leapfrog the Offenders for the top spot.

- Season: 49-27 (2nd in Div; 1 GB)
- League Power Ranking: 5th
- Next Week: vs. Dundalk (4 games), vs. Middlesex (3 games)




Image Holland Oats
The Oats racked up a strong week to finally pull even with Rockford for the Midwest Division lead. Next week will present a challenge with two series against other division leaders—first a short two-game set vs. Wilmington, and then three games vs. Oxnard.

- This Week: 5-2
- Season: 41-34 (T-1st in Div)
- League Power Ranking: 10th
- Next Week: vs. Wilmington (2 games), vs. Oxnard (3 games)

There were a few grumblings about run support, so I looked into the advanced stats for the average runs our teams score in each pitcher's starts (RSup) and how that compares to their records. Looks like Rush's suspicions were correct...

Oh yeah, that's something I had meant to put up here. I came up with a few stadium names based on people/things associated with that location, or references to the team name:

For the remaining ones, I'm still taking suggestions:

Altoona
Boise
Danbury
Dundalk
Fort Myers
Fresno
Kalamazoo
Nassau
Newark
Oxnard
Regina
Rimouski
Rockford
Shreveport
Yakima

Rick Cerone Stadium sounds like the quintessential Brick City Ballpark name.
My avatar corresponds on my place in the Swamp posting list with the all-time Home Run list. Starting backwards from 100, #98 (actually in a three-way tie at 97) is Dave "The Cobra" Parker with 339.

The Regina GlobeScan Stadium, referred to as the G Spot.

(Sorry, none of the major Canadian corporations that start with "G" are based in the province, but I think I found the best one to lead to the nickname.)
