Player of the Week (Su14): Week 4 Nominees

Written by - Posted 2014-09-03 00:12 in POTW


We have one automatic nomination, although he probably would’ve been nominated either way — Jeff Nitto of the Gumballers (6 nominations, 2 wins) pitched a perfect game. In that game, against Jimmy Giggles, Nitto had 3 strikeouts to 12 batters faced over 6 IP. On the day, he had 17 IP, 1 run for an ERA of 0.35, and 8 strikeouts for a 2-0 record. Batting, Nitto was .500 with 2 homeruns, 2 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.583. Not bad.

No he’s not quite a rookie, but Sean Whalen of Chicken and Wiffle is nominated for the first time in his short career. On the day, Whalen batted .500, had 2 homeruns, 4 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.583.

Will McNally (7 nominations, 2 wins) of newly formed Wolfpack is picking up where he left off, consistently getting on base. This week was no different, batting .556, with 4 doubles, a home run, 4 RBIs and an OPS of 1.500.

Sam Smith (first nomination) lives in what is the worst/weirdest division this year, the West, where no one seems to want to win it. That said, Sam did his best to help out his team the Bald Beavers this week, batting .700, with 2 doubles and 2 RBIs and an OPS of 1.600

He might be the most polarizing player in the league, but he certainly deserves to be here. Felix Fernandez of the Janitors (15 nominations, 2 wins) went 2-0 pitching, gave up 3 hits and 1 run (0.38 ERA) with 10 strikeouts. On top of that, he batted .636, had a home run and 2 RBIs with an OPS of 1.545.


The public vote counts for 50% of the overall total, and the league managers vote counts for the remaining 50%.
