      Phew... Some real nail biters so far...
       
       
      Game 6
       
      After rain delays game 6, the starters set for game 7 set out instead, a
      matchup of the first & fourth games where both teams split with Dan
      Haren & Wandy Rodriguez dueling it out.
       
      Like in game 1, the Chauns jump out to an early 3 nothing lead in the
      1st, only this time McCann homers. Nashville manages to get a run
      in the 3rd on Manny's solo shot, but Haren shuts them down and sets
      into his groove.
       
      Rodriguez lets up 2 more in the 6th on back to back doubles, and
      he's yanked with men on 1st & 2nd. Condrey is brought in to hold
      the Chauns, but Vladimir Guerrero has other plans and blasts a
      3 run shot to Center making it 8 to 1.
       
      The writing is on the wall for this game as Haren continues, and
      although he lets up solo shots to Dunn and Hernandez in the 8th
      and 9th, he's able to go the distance and tie the series at 3 a piece.
       
      Chauns 8 - Nine 3
       
       
      Game 7
       
      California scratches scheduled starter Hernandez due to the weather
      and his tendinitis, and goes with RH Jesse Litsch to face fellow RH
      Mike Pelfrey in the final game of the series.
       
      Both starters show great command, with Nashville getting the first run
      across in the 3rd after Giambi reaches on an error and Dunn doubles
      him in. It'll stay 1 to 0 until the bottom of the 5th when Ellsbury doubles
      and Durham's error allows Theriot to reach base and both runners to
      advance. With men on 2nd & 3rd Granderson singles them both in to
      give California a 2 to 1 lead.
       
      Nashville will have an opportunity in the top half when Ramon Hernadez
      singles and is advanced on Giambi's sacrafice. The Chauns manager wastes
      no time and goes to the pen. Valverde comes in to shut the door and keep
      the lead.
       
      Rhodes and Ziegler will follow, and the Nine are unable to crack the Chauns
      Pen as Ziegler as sets them down in order in the 9th giving California back to
      back League Championships.
       
      It was a great game, with amazingly no Earned Runs !
       
      Chauns 2 - Nine 1
       
       
      Series Highlights & Stats
       
      - The Nine's top five in the pen who were called on for 80 % of the Relief
      show up with a measely 1.17 ERA.
       
      - Nashville's 7 errors in the series allow 7 extra runs in the series to come
      accross

      Phew... Some real nail biters so far...
       
       
      Game 1
       
      The Chauns jump out to an early 3 nothing lead in the 1st on Kapler's Homer. Nashville
      comes back in the 2nd & 3rd to push 3 across and tied it up. In the bottom of the 3rd
      the Chauns chase starter Wandy Rodriguez on a pair of doubles and lead 5 to 3 until
      the 9th. Closer Brad Ziegler is called on and gives up a 2 run shot to Giambi, his first
      bad outing of the playoffs, and we head to the bottom of the 9th tied up at 5. In the
      Chauns half Aaron Miles draws a leadoff walk, Juan Pierre comes on to pinch runs
      and promptly steals second. With one gone Ryan Zimmerman is intentionally walked
      to set up the double play, however James Loney foils the plan by knocking a shallow
      single to load the bases. David Murphy comes in to pinch hit and lifts a fly to LF
      bringing in Pierre and giving the Chauns a hard fought victory.
      Chauns 6 - Nine 5
       
       
      Game 2
       
      This time the Nine jump out to an early lead when Evan Longoria scores on a throwing
      error in the 2nd. Billingsley settles in though, and the Chauns come back pushing runs
      accross in the 5th, 6th, & 7th on an Ellsbury homer and Murphy's extra base hit and
      lead 4 to 1 going into the 8th. In what has become playoff fashion for the Chauns,
      Nashville loads the bases and plays the singles game to tie it up at 4 a piece chasing
      Billingsley. In the bottom half Brian Giles singles off Devine, and again Juan Pierre
      comes on to pinch run and steals second. This time Curtis Granderson singles to
      bring him in, and Zuegler holds Nashville in the 9th giving California a 2-0 lead.

      Series Highlights & Stats
       
      - The Nine's top five in the pen who were called on for 80 % of the Relief
      show up with a measely 1.17 ERA.
       
      - Nashville's 7 errors in the series allow 7 extra runs in the series to come
      across for California.
       
      - Playing only 3 games, the Nine's best hitter was Ramon Santiago who
      hit .600 with a double, triple, and scored 4 runs.
       
      - Manny showed his prowess in the series blasting 5 homers, hitting
      .304 for the series and slugging 1.000
       
      - California proves to be equally inept with the glove commiting 8 errors,
      but allows one less Unearned run.
       
      - The Chauns pen blows 4 saves, but their top 6 manage a 1.27 ERA.
       
      - California's top 5 hitters are the demise of the Nine going 41 for 108
      scoring 20 runs and driving in 24, while slugging over .700, compared
      to the Nine only having one player appearing in more than 3 games
      ending up with an average over .300 (Manny).

        Congrats to David and the 2009 Outlaws Champion California Chauns.
         
        Nashville stayed in it as long as they could (and a little longer than I thought they would!) with a purely 2-dimensional attack of home runs and relief pitching but was overcome by the superior starting pitching and defense and well-balanced offensive atttack of the Chauns.  Interesting series with a 26+ grade closer on each side (Zieglar and Devine) - very unusual.  The strong bullpens on both sides definitely made scoring runs tough in the late innings and made for a lot of excitement in the close games.
         
        With suspensions/injuries to Manny and Josh Hamilton, Nashville looks to return to earth next year, but Dunn, Longoria, Jeter and Zobrist should provide enough offense to at least keep next year's team more competitive than Nashville's last place 2008 team.
         
        Thanks, David, for providing great summaries and thanks to Brian for another flawless year as commissioner.

          Thanks Robert,
           
          You had a great season, and easily from the way things went in the
          series, it was up for grabs to either of us, but from all of them that
          I have seen in the Outlaws League this was by far one of the most
          exciting with almost every single game going back and forth and
          keeping the fans on the edge of their seats the entire time.
           
          I'm sure the TV ratings will show a big plus for the league...
           
          And to Brian, who continues to show us all he was meant for the
          job, kudos my friend !  This was definately one of the most together
          season's for the league that I can remember.
           
          Now if you'll excuse me, there's some champagne that needs
          pouring in the clubhouse !

            Just sitting here at work and I see we have a Champ for 2009!
            Congrats to Dave and the Chauns on a great season. If I recall correctly, that's a repeat for the Chauns. What a great series and a great way to end the season.

            Rob went from worst to first in the divison and took the Metro League title. That was impressive.

            Over the next week or so I'll send out a bunch of emails on varoius topics to announce award winners and begin to set stuff in order for next year. So look for stuff beginning tonight.

            Later,
            Brian

            Thanks Robert,
             
            You had a great season, and easily from the way things went in the
            series, it was up for grabs to either of us, but from all of them that
            I have seen in the Outlaws League this was by far one of the most
            exciting with almost every single game going back and forth and
            keeping the fans on the edge of their seats the entire time.
             
            I'm sure the TV ratings will show a big plus for the league...
             
            And to Brian, who continues to show us all he was meant for the
            job, kudos my friend !  This was definately one of the most together
            season's for the league that I can remember.
             
            Now if you'll excuse me, there's some champagne that needs
            pouring in the clubhouse !

            Congrats to David and the 2009 Outlaws Champion California Chauns..
             
            Nashville stayed in it as long as they could (and a little longer than I thought they would!) with a purely 2-dimensional attack of home runs and relief pitching but was overcome by the superior starting pitching and defense and well-balanced offensive atttack of the Chauns.  Interesting series with a 26+ grade closer on each side (Zieglar and Devine) - very unusual.  The strong bullpens on both sides definitely made scoring runs tough in the late innings and made for a lot of excitement in the close games.
             
            With suspensions/ injuries to Manny and Josh Hamilton, Nashville looks to return to earth next year, but Dunn, Longoria, Jeter and Zobrist should provide enough offense to at least keep next year's team more competitive than Nashville's last place 2008 team.
             
            Thanks, David, for providing great summaries and thanks to Brian for another flawless year as commissioner.

            Phew... Some real nail biters so far...
             
             
            Game 6
             
            After rain delays game 6, the starters set for game 7 set out instead, a
            matchup of the first & fourth games where both teams split with Dan
            Haren & Wandy Rodriguez dueling it out.
             
            Like in game 1, the Chauns jump out to an early 3 nothing lead in the
            1st, only this time McCann homers. Nashville manages to get a run
            in the 3rd on Manny's solo shot, but Haren shuts them down and sets
            into his groove.
             
            Rodriguez lets up 2 more in the 6th on back to back doubles, and
            he's yanked with men on 1st & 2nd. Condrey is brought in to hold
            the Chauns, but Vladimir Guerrero has other plans and blasts a
            3 run shot to Center making it 8 to 1.
             
            The writing is on the wall for this game as Haren continues, and
            although he lets up solo shots to Dunn and Hernandez in the 8th
            and 9th, he's able to go the distance and tie the series at 3 a piece.
             
            Chauns 8 - Nine 3
             
             
            Game 7
             
            California scratches scheduled starter Hernandez due to the weather
            and his tendinitis, and goes with RH Jesse Litsch to face fellow RH
            Mike Pelfrey in the final game of the series.
             
            Both starters show great command, with Nashville getting the first run
            across in the 3rd after Giambi reaches on an error and Dunn doubles
            him in. It'll stay 1 to 0 until the bottom of the 5th when Ellsbury doubles
            and Durham's error allows Theriot to reach base and both runners to
            advance. With men on 2nd & 3rd Granderson singles them both in to
            give California a 2 to 1 lead.
             
            Nashville will have an opportunity in the top half when Ramon Hernadez
            singles and is advanced on Giambi's sacrafice. The Chauns manager wastes
            no time and goes to the pen. Valverde comes in to shut the door and keep
            the lead.
             
            Rhodes and Ziegler will follow, and the Nine are unable to crack the Chauns
            Pen as Ziegler as sets them down in order in the 9th giving California back to
            back League Championships.
             
            It was a great game, with amazingly no Earned Runs !
             
            Chauns 2 - Nine 1
             
             
            Series Highlights & Stats
             
            - The Nine's top five in the pen who were called on for 80 % of the Relief
            show up with a measely 1.17 ERA.
             
            - Nashville's 7 errors in the series allow 7 extra runs in the series to come
            accross

            Phew... Some real nail biters so far...
             
             
            Game 1
             
            The Chauns jump out to an early 3 nothing lead in the 1st on Kapler's Homer. Nashville
            comes back in the 2nd & 3rd to push 3 across and tied it up. In the bottom of the 3rd
            the Chauns chase starter Wandy Rodriguez on a pair of doubles and lead 5 to 3 until
            the 9th. Closer Brad Ziegler is called on and gives up a 2 run shot to Giambi, his first
            bad outing of the playoffs, and we head to the bottom of the 9th tied up at 5. In the
            Chauns half Aaron Miles draws a leadoff walk, Juan Pierre comes on to pinch runs
            and promptly steals second. With one gone Ryan Zimmerman is intentionally walked
            to set up the double play, however James Loney foils the plan by knocking a shallow
            single to load the bases. David Murphy comes in to pinch hit and lifts a fly to LF
            bringing in Pierre and giving the Chauns a hard fought victory.
            Chauns 6 - Nine 5
             
             
            Game 2
             
            This time the Nine jump out to an early lead when Evan Longoria scores on a throwing
            error in the 2nd. Billingsley settles in though, and the Chauns come back pushing runs
            accross in the 5th, 6th, & 7th on an Ellsbury homer and Murphy's extra base hit and
            lead 4 to 1 going into the 8th. In what has become playoff fashion for the Chauns,
            Nashville loads the bases and plays the singles game to tie it up at 4 a piece chasing
            Billingsley. In the bottom half Brian Giles singles off Devine, and again Juan Pierre
            comes on to pinch run and steals second. This time Curtis Granderson singles to
            bring him in, and Zuegler holds Nashville in the 9th giving California a 2-0 lead.
             
            Chauns 5 - Nine 4
