Making It All Official

What can you say about a guy who won more than half of our season's championships? That he was commanding? Dominating. Impressive? Unbelievable? Ass-kicking? All of those sound right, but even those — all of them, combined — don't sound like enough to fully describe this year's most-impressive winner of five of nine championships, Deeger's Dogs owner DJay Andersen. He won Overall Champ, Regular Season Champ, Hitting Champ, Playoff Champ, and Pepino Ortiz Me Division Champ. I mean, come on, DJay rocked it to win his first Overall Championship, though he's almost always competitive. He was that good!

“Yeah, well, see, okay … after, say, July, I barely paid attention to the league," the casual DJay said in the champagne-soaked locker room shortly after Game 7 of the World Series. "I mean, that's when I finally took over the top-spot for good. So, I'd check in on the league, oh, I dunno, about once a month, make a trade here and there, and next thing you knew I was getting one of those huge gameshow checks from Commissioner Rube Furrow."

Rube, on awarding the huge gameshow check to DJay, said, "This guy! How did he do it?! Seriously. He had this monster season, made some deft trades to have a monster playoffs, and saunters off into the season's sunset with most of the marbles. Incredible. Congratulations to a great champ!"

DJay collected $813 for the Overall win, plus next year's ownership fees, bringing his overall winnings to $913, a nice windfall for the Dogs owner. He also wins the mystical Jim Cummings Cup, named after the 2005 Overall Champ who headed to the Field of Dreams in 2013, and is given each year in honor of winning the Overall SLPL Championship.

"Tip of the ball cap to Jim Cummings," DJay said. "I never met the man but I am honored to join the elite owners of the SLPL who have won his cup."

In the pot this 2019 season, $2950 is being spread across seven winners, with $125 of that being set aside for whoever wins the HOF Death Pool.

Here are all the official champs and final money-winners for the 2019 season:

Winner to be Named Later

This means that we will start next season by handing out a check to our final winner. There are currently no points earned for HOF deaths, yet. Who have you put your nickel on?

Congratulations!
Congratulations to DJay Andersen and his Deeger's Dogs! Congrats also to all our other champs and money winners! And thanks to all of you for joining us for a most-excellent season. We look forward to seeing you all next year.

Pedregoso

P.S. IMPORTANT MESSAGE TO ALL MONEY-WINNERS: Please use this form to give us your preferred snail mail address so Rube can send your check. Or, if you would like him to send you a PayPal transfer, let us know that instead by including your PayPal information.

Deeger's Dogs Owner DJay Andersen Wins 2019 Jim Cummings Cup; Commissioner Issues Statement

With apologies for not updating the website since the end of the World Series, but allow us to quickly congratulate Deeger's Dogs Owner DJ Andersen for winning the Whole Shabang this year. I mean, really, that was a heck of a season. We can't announce all the money winners right now — Sunday's more likely — but big props to DJ, who will scrape $813 out of the pot and get a free $100 entry fee into next year's league.

To hold everyone over, we've heard from Rube Furrow, our commissioner, who recently issued a statement to the league. We happily share his message below …

As we shut the barn door on yet another stellar season at Santa Lechuga Power League, I would like to thank all team owners for making this yet another great experience. Note that I said I would like to thank them, but alas it's hard to think that this Major League Baseball season can be deemed a "great experience" when the season, which started with such promise and hope, ends in a World Series involving both the Washington Nationals and the Houston Astros. I mean, really, who gives a rooster's patoot about either of those teams?

To be honest (and I'm speaking only for myself), I'd much rather have seen the dreaded Los Angeles Dodgers squared off against the dreaded New York Yankees. At least then I could have rooted against both teams instead of watching this series with utter ambivalence. The Nats? The 'Stros? Who cares?

Anyway, thanks for playing and congratulations to those SLPL team ownership groups who managed to eke out some winnings from the year. And we're sorry that we don't have Participation Ribbons to distribute to those of you who didn't win.

If you are a winner, please
contact me as quickly as possible to arrange how you'd like your winnings sent. I'm happy to send a check or to post a Paypal. If you don't care one way or the other, that actually helps me. Either way I need your information. If you prefer check, send me your proper address. If you want it by Paypal, send me your email address. If either way is okay, send both.

Also, let me know if you'd like us to set aside $100 from your winnings to secure your participation in next year's SLPL.

And let's hope that next season brings us a World Series with real teams.

Rube Furrow

Checking In On SLPL

mlb_postseason_00

Unless the Nats can claw their way back into this Series, tonight we will be awarding the Overall Championship trophy. While it will likely go to DJay Andersen, the owner of Deeger's Dogs who has dominated most of the Regular Season and held tight to the top spot throughout the playoffs with some deft end-of-season trades. There is, however, an ever-so-slight chance DJay could lose the top spot, but only if either Altuve or Gurriel or both connect for multiple homers. Here are the rosters of the teams that could be heard from before this is all over for 2019:

  • Hitters earn 20 points for every home run hit
  • Hitters lose 2 points for every K
  • Pitchers earn 2 points for every K
  • Pitchers lose 10 points for every homer surrendered

*Final payouts may shift to account for the 50+ trades we still need to process before the playoffs begin.

Good luck to all y’alls during the playoffs!

We Love Our Owners!

Here's a fun way to close out the Regular Season, a note from Maddog's Maulers owner Michael Skoien:

Thanks again for running a fun league. It looks like I have agonizingly tripped and fallen about 5 yards short of the finish line, as I once again exhausted all trade possibilities, only to see almost half my roster head to the IL.

Kudos to
Kevin Klinkhammer for a well played roster that sped past my fallen corpse in the final days of the season.

Best regards,
Maddog

P.S. Not to gloat too much, but GO TWINS! Beat those Damn Yankees!!!

You read that and you can see why we love our owners, right?

ICYMI 2: Coming to the End of th Season

And now that the playoff picture is set — damn, Indians — it is clear who will be safer picks to have on your playoff roster.

The 2019 Regular Season is coming to a close. You will need to finalize your playoff roster before the final pitch of the final game of the Regular Season, which would include any tiebreakers to determine Wild Card or Division teams. How will scoring for the playoffs work? Here's how it goes:

During the Divisional Playoffs...
. Hitters earn 20 points for every home run hit
. Hitters lose 2 points for every K
. Pitchers earn 2 points for every K
. Pitchers lose 10 points for every homer surrendered

During the League Championship Series...
. Hitters earn 50 points for every home run hit
. Hitters lose 5 points for every K
. Pitchers earn 5 points for every K
. Pitchers lose 25 points for every homer surrendered

During the World Series...
. Hitters earn 100 points for every home run hit
. Hitters lose 10 points for every K
. Pitchers earn 10 points for every K
. Pitchers lose 50 points for every homer surrendered

Which means, of course, you'll want to stack your playoff roster with players from teams you think will go deep into the playoffs.

Good luck planning for the end of the season!
