South Oakland has a tough 3-game stretch coming up in which we play the artists formerly known as Day Toyota, and then a double header against the Bulldogs at John Herb the following weekend.
Standings as of 6/3:

There is some serious separation going on here between the haves and have-nots.
It’s going to be a shit show at the bottom of the bracket. Conceivably we could see the militia, Carrick and pour house drop a few games coming up.
right now, Elliot, Clinton, the Bulldogs and Ashley Shaffer are battling for position in the top four and then it’s everyone else.
Elliot is good.
that’s my expert analysis.
Unfortunately our team is constructed as such that we can lose 15-1 to teams that suck because we lack pitching depth and infield depth, and sometimes our players don’t show up.
The winable games we dropped to Carrick, Pour House and Cranberry and the forfeit to the Militia really hurt right now, but at least we’re finally putting up runs and winning games.
We have to steal a couple against teams that are above us in the standings, which is almost everyone.
We might be able to jump in the standings before we play this sunday.
We need all hands on deck Sunday. Jefferson Davis Hills is good. If we have to throw out a patchwork lineup with random single A players we will get embarrassed.
We can give them a game if everyone shows up.
This is most likely the last season of the Ducks as a Double A team, we at least need to make the playoffs and give it one final run.
