Chicago Co-Ed Week 5 Softball

Week 5 Video

Week 5 Video is above for ya!  Week 5 is in the books and by all accounts it was one of the more fun weeks we have had so far.. Crazy to think that we are now just two weeks away from the Playoffs (which start in Week 8).  Let’s get to the Rankings shall we..

1) Team Bartlett (Atomic Transport) – Currently in 1st with 112 points (Last Week:1) – So I had to go back and look through how I have started the last few blogs because I honestly was nervous I would type something I previously wrote.. A couple weeks ago I started with “Umm duhh.. They are #1 in both the Standings and Rankings because they just don’t lose. ”  I don’t know how many different ways I can really say this.. Here’s another shot:  They are still Undefeated and have now shown dominance in a 5th Sport.  What can this crew not do? I just don’t know.. This week they got a 12-3 W. I can’t even single out anyone with their Stats for the weeks but ALL OF THE LADIES ON TEAM BARTLETT ARE THE REAL DEAL. Most had hits (some multiple) and several had RBI’s.  There were questions about what happens if they have an Undefeated Season..  What does the rest of the League think about that?  Team Geer (Whiskey Bar) will have their work cut out for them..

2) Team Leibow ( – Currently in 2nd with 82 points (Last Week: 2) – Back up that number #2 Spot is Team Leibow! They got an 8-4 win over Team Silberstein (Cy Fredrics) on Monday Night… Ben “Sheets is back!” Klassman hit a 2-run Dinger who broke the game open for the Leibowteers.  After the final out was recorded on Monday Night Captain Harrison “Barnes” Leibow and Jeff “Francour” Wineberg took turns nailing Benny with shaving cream pies!  They were so pumped with the W that Harrison cancelled that night’s midnight training session. Next week they have volleyball against Team McMenamin (FansEdge)

3) Team Shiffman (Real Ryder Revolution) – Currently in 3rd with 60 points (Last Week: 2) – I rarely drop teams when they get Wins. This demotion has little to do with them and everything to do with Team Leibow also winning and being over 20 points ahead in the Standings.. Anyways back to the positives of their win from Monday Night. They looked great! Their defense seemed like they were all over the field and they were not shy with the bats.  Pam “Jeff Samardzija” Kove brung it on the mound and added 4 hits at the plate.. Also, Michael Bemoras, Howie Lamm and Brian Herst aka the “Sultans of Swat” (See what I did there? Drew? Do you get it?) all were 4 for 4 at the plate..  Next week they draw Team Silberstein in Volleyball.

4) Team Thomas (City Point Realty) – Currently in 4th with 47 points (Last Week: NR) – Back in the Rankings after Week 5 is Team Thomas! They won by a football score 17-zip on Monday.  Before the game these guys had a certain “we’re not here for games tonight.. this is Softball” and they took that attitude right into the 1st inning with them.. They took control from the get go and never let up.. Kevin and Captain Kyle “Brothers” Thomas combined for 6 hits and Tim “Other Bro” Thomas didnt want to miss the fun and had a towering Home Run.  Danielle and Jessica “Sisters?” Martorano had 4 hits between them with a few RBIs to boot.  These guys might have tune-up games amongst families on the weekends.. all I know is, this was not their first softball game! Next week they Team Harris ( in Volleyball.

5) Team Silberstein (Cy Fredrics) – Currently in 5th with 43 points (Last Week: 5) – So if your thinking “man Holden, you just went in order this week with the Rankings.” To you, I say, “Yup.”  These guys didnt get the W this week but have obviously been doing enough to stay in the Top 5 of the Standings. That’s enough for me to keep them in the Rankings this week..  Jayme “Back, Back, Back…” Wagner hit a Homer and a few RBIs to boot!  This crew definitely wants another crack at Softball because the next time Softball is played is the 2nd round of the Playoffs.. Before then, they will have #3 Team Shiffman next week in Volleyball.

Rest of the Pack (Alphabetical)

Team Geer (Whiskey Bar Chicago) – Currently in 7th with 26 points (Last Week: 4) – Bit of a Roller Coaster Ride for Team Geer this season. Up and down and back up again.. Monday Night wasn’t there best outing even though Daryl “Strawberry” Stanley went .500 at the plate.. This should mean they can get a W next week! Team Bartlett is waiting for them however.. Are they going to be the team that Beats the Streak??

Team Harris ( – Currently in 6th with 32 points (Last Week: NR) – They ran into the buzzsaw Team Bartlett last week.  So my advice is just shake it off and get ready for some Volleyball! Jimmy “Rollins” Georgantas did go for 3-3 in the game.  Team Thomas awaits next week..

Team McMenamin (FansEdge) – Currently in 8th with 12 points (Last Week: NR) – Softball is a hard sport to just all of a sudden pick up.. They didnt have the best game, but they were very strong in the Volleyball Tourney a few weeks ago and I fully expect them to get some points next week!

That’s it for this Week’s Rankings.. Next Week I’ll go over Seeding Scenarios for going into the Playoffs. See ya Monday Night at Windy City Field House.
