Rough winds again this week killed offense. But, a few folks were able to scrap out some hits. It’s amazing what kinds of things happen in San Luis Obispo, the location of the Commissioner’s office staff, umpire, and scorekeeper retreat this week (NOTE: not all umpires and scorekeepers were invited) that cause a delay in the posting of the nominees. As a result, we’ll let you vote through Saturday.
VOTES ARE DUE BY SATURDAY AT 11:59 PM
- Sean Conway (Brosephorous Rex): For a while we thought Conway was just the 2nd or 3rd best player on the 2nd or 3rd best team. But, maybe we got that wrong. He gets his second nomination this season by going 7 for 13, with 3 doubles a home run and two driven in. He did commit an error playing the field, but we’re willing to overlook it. Maybe last year we were confused with which one was Contario? Conway led Rex to two W’s and first place in the Central.
- Mark Nicholson (Fear and Loathing on the Base Path): The odd man out of last weeks POTW love fest for Fear that resulted in zero wins, Nicholson edges himself onto the list this week. Slugging .889, with two dingers and RBI, he probably has the lowest AVG of any POTW nominee in history. He single handidly beat the Barnburners…he was the entire offense in the game, but his squad took a bad beat giving On the Fence their first win. We’ll see if the Fear vote turnout operation works this week, since they don’t have to split their loyalties.
- Dan Sullivan (Mr. Party’s Waddle): Sully slugged 1.000 this week, with two homers,
twoRBI, and at 3 for 10 just beat out Nicholson for lowest AVG nominated for POTW. We think an appearance by Mr. Party himself inspired the team manager to step it up a notch, but it could have just been the wind blowing out hard on the Red field. Regardless, Waddle won two games and they certainly feel better about themselves because of it.
