Player of the Week (Sp11): Week 6 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2011-05-31 23:09 in POTW

Two more perfect games but we finally get a Thaman-free week. First time we haven’t had a rookie on the list this season.


  • Nicholas DiCrosta (Scared Hitless) – DiCrosta won Week 2 but gets his second nomination this season (13th overall) for throwing a perfect game. He and Hitless have all but guaranteed themselves the top overall seed heading to the playoffs behind his arm and bat.
  • Alex Filides (NWO) – Filides threw his second perfect game of the season and keeps talking about his perfect inning streak. As usual, he’s basically talking to himself. This will be his 10th nomination and he’s never come close to winning.
  • Kris Garcia (Canvassers) – Garcia also gets his 10th career nomination, but he’s won four times. The future first ballot Hall of Famer has found his touch on the mound again and has been dominating. This nomination is mostly for his hitting though, as it should be. He hit one dinger and two doubles to slug 1.222 and hit .667 as the Canvassers split the weekend and are tied for the final wild card spot. He drove in two runs and is the only nominee this week not to strike out.
  • Howard Krasilovsky (Master Batters) – The Master Batters needed two wins this weekend but only got one. Howie tried his best, but without Higgins, this team is just barely staying above water. Krasilovsky hit two dingers and a double to slug 1.444 and hit .667 aloing with driving in four runs. He has one previous nomination but no keychains.
  • Eamon Murray (Most Interesting Men In the World) – Murray nets his third nomination this week as the Men sit alone at the top of the Wildcard race. He hit five homers, and one each of everything else for a cycle on the day. He slugged 2.000 and hit .615 while driving in seven runs. His last POTW nomination ended in controversy as allegations of vote padding and a past the deadline vote gave Murray a less than 1/2 of 1% edge.
