What do Anthony Weiner, the IRS, PRISM, and Joel Brunk have in common? That's right, they were all part of a huge scandal in 2013. Topping that list is the ridiculously underpublicized conspiracy to rob Joel "Puig" Brunk of the 2013 spring PWL rookie of the year. Brunk finished 2nd in the league with a 0.22 ERA and 2nd among non-Barnburners with 15 RBI. If he ever decided to ditch his Target brand "under armor" shirts and substitute them with a cut-off, he might be mistaken for a Shannon.

That said, 7th Linning Stretch has all the pieces of the puzzle to be this summer's Bad News Bears*. The team thinned out quite a bit for the summer season, although one could say that with the loss of Matt West, Marshall Graves, and Chris Caldwell the team got considerably thicker in at least one statistical category...

Returning for their second season, Joe Flanigan, Andres Almazan, and Mike Williamson hope to leverage their experience to seriously challenge that long sought after goal of the Mendoza Line. Almazan showed promise when given the opportunity to pitch, throwing a whopping 2.5 hitless innings in the Spring. Flanigan, however, wasn't so fortunate. When he wasn't sleeping through 2:30 pm games, he managed to raise the team ERA nearly 50% in just 2.5 innings pitched. While pitching is not his strong suite, his bat was heating up at the end of the season - notably getting robbed of a home run in the playoffs that may have given the Barnburners their first and only playoff loss. Williamson, on the other hand, has reportedly been seen working out his beard in the offseason in hopes to be more "Thaman-like." There have been other reports that he shaved another part of his body to be more "Keeven-like" on the base paths.

Capping off the team this year is veteran and manager Nick West and rookie Mike Aguirre. At this point, you know what you're going to get with West. He's going to show up, he's going to give 100%, he's going to drink muscle milk, and he's going to wear embarrassing shirts. While West is often compared to Miguel Cabrera because they are the same age and have roughly the same stats, West also likes to compare their backgrounds. Both born in Maracay, Venezuela, West and Cabrera share a love for baseball, Telemundo, Latin children, and Miguel Cabrera. Aguiirre is a lesser known quantity. All that's currently known of Aguirre is that he is able to get Almazan, his cousin, out of dangerous situations while playing basketball in the DC projects. This kind of scrappiness will likely prove to be a true asset for the 7th during this year's championship run. With the Barnburners opting out for the summer season, this quality will rank the 7th securely in the top 15 in the "teams I'm scared to get into a bench clearing brawl with" category.


* Disclosure: Team play may actually more closely resemble that of the Barenstain Bears.
