Player of the Week: Week 5 Nominees (Sp15)

Written by - Posted 2015-05-26 22:41 in POTW


  • We had one automatic nomination from last week, Adriano DeSorrento with a no hitter (nearly two). While he wasn’t amazing at the plate, Adriano pitched 12 innings of one hit ball for both wins, striking out 10 in the process.
  • Having an up and down season, Sean Whalen of Chicken and Wiffle certainly had an “up week” this time. On the day, Whalen batted .556, hit 2 homeruns, had 4 RBIs, and an OPS of 1.778.
  • Can we go a week without these two nominated? I guess we will in the final week when they both aren’t here. Let’s just do the stat line here, Jack Shannon batted .667, hit 3 home runs (all solo shots), and had an OPS of 2.444.
  • Not to be outdone again, dearest brother Jim Shannon had himself a day at the plate also. Jim batted .600, hit 4 home runs, had 7 RBIs, and an OPS of 2.400. He also pitched 2.5 innings of no hit ball with 2 strikeouts.
  • Jeff Nitto is having an amazing season and is the main reason the Gumballers are a near playoff lock. This week he batted .667, hit 2 home runs, had 5 RBIs, and an OPS of 2.222. He also pitched 14 innings, won both games, and struck out 15 with an ERA of .086.


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