2021 SLPL Standings Finally Posted


The SLPL Bobblehead-of-Lettuce

We have been busting butt to get the website up and running, and it’s been a slog. Having said that, we do have standings posted here: http://www.santa-lechuga.com/. As you’ll see, Blood Bath Ann Beyonce owner Ann Stockberger jumped out to to a big early lead on the backs of seven home runs. And because every home run is worth 1,000 points this season, she’s got, like, a 4,000+ lead.

Look at that, an epic final season already!

Anyway, the dust hasn’t completely settled at the website yet, so it may be on and offline over the coming days. Fair warning.

One last thing! I will soon be sending everyone a link to another website, our stats provider, so you can view up-to-the-minute standings, projections, other teams’ rosters, and transactions. I figured, why replicate what I can just point you to? If you an email from RotoWire, please don’t delete it.
Anyway, hit me up with questions.

And good luck this season!

Message from the SLPL Commissioner

slpl_glacial

As those of us who root for the San Francisco Giants know by now, if winter is behind us and spring has sprung, it’s time to turn our attention to late-night bullpen meltdowns. Which is to say that baseball has returned. Which is also to say that great teams with strong pitching staffs are playing somewhere, but definitely not in the vicinity of the Bay Bridge.

But I digress.

Because the best news about springing springs and last month’s winter is that it means the Santa Lechuga Power League has returned.

And as you know by now, the 2021 season will be the final year for SLPL. Now, many of you have asked us why we’re hanging it up after more than six decades of quality baseball nitwittery. We thought long and hard about that, and we really didn’t come up with anything until Commissioner Rube Furrow was dinking around with Canva to create the logo at the top of this message. You see that typeface up there? The one that says “Santa Lechuga Power League” above the bobbleheads? You know what font that is? It’s called “Glacial Indifference.” And suddenly Commissioner Rube Furrow said to himself, “Why, that’s it! That’s why we’re dismantling the league at the end of the season! Glacial Indifference!

Your commissioner, Rube Furrow, has been with the Santa Lechuga Power League from the get-go. Over the years he’s had to juggle his duties as baseball commissioner and as mayor of the beautiful mission town of Nuestra Senora de la Lechuga, home of the Santa Lechuga Dust Devils. As you know if you’ve spent any time in this league, the Dust Devils won the national E-Division championship back in 1969, back when Santa Lechuga was affiliated with the Seattle Pilots.

Anywho, the SLPL front office wants everybody to know that we’ve got 24 teams signed up for this year’s final season. And we welcome all y’all. We love the team names and we think you’re all the cat’s meow.

Please know that our Director of Operations, Hawk Gandy, promises to have the SLPL Epic Final Season website up and functional just as soon as he can shake last week’s drunk.

Yours in Glacial Indifference,

Rube Furrow
Commissioner (1967-present)
Santa Lechuga Power League

The 2021 Season Has Officially Begun!


The SLPL Bobblehead-of-Lettuce

The EPIC FINAL SEASON! of the Santa Lechuga Power League has officially begun. And, weirdly, in our 22nd season — we began in 2000 — we have 22 teams. Strike that. We missed two teams! We have 24 teams!

22 Teams


That's cool and symmetrical and EPIC! Because everything is EPIC in our final season.

With 22 teams, our base pot will be $2100, with the remaining $100 going to fund DJay "Going for the Three-peat" Andersen because he was the champ the past two years and never really got his just due for winning two seasons ago. And while $2100 is beefy enough to spread around to like Overall, Hitting, Pitching, and Division champs, the pot will only grow as owners EPICALLY over-react to minor injuries and make needlessly bad trades for mirage players who hit four homers in first two weeks only to suddenly go cold. Because that's the kind of league this is.

Did we say EPIC? Well, point values are EPIC this season. You get 1000 points for a single home run. You lose 500 points for surrendering a home run. It will be crazy, like a freakin' arcade-game-crazy. Except, I suspect, my Monos. Somehow my Monos never seem to light up the scoreboard.

Anyway, good luck to one and all! Hold tight … things are busy with work right now so it might legit be several days before we get this operation fully up-and-running. While we get our act together, here are some MLB links — also found in the menu bar up top — you might find useful throughout the season:


Enjoy the season, the EPIC FINAL SEASON! of the Santa Lechuga Power League!
