Here we go Week 14! One of, if not THE, most important weeks in Inter-divisional play!
1) Legionaries lead league in homers last week, with 16.
2) Three teams (Punk, Rome, Rehmix) hit 10 wins last week. Airbourne is at 9.
3) Punk and Airbourne BOTH sit on a 4-game winning streak, looking to hit 5 this week.
4) Roma has the weakest schedule, while Broc STILL has the hardest.
5) Dubs Wubs Wubs broke the consecutive loss streak last week, losing their 10th straight. The Broc Family sent them a fruit basket.
6) The Flyers have been putting on a pitching clinic the handful of weeks. Lead the league in saves for the 5th consecutive time, plus ERA and WHIP for the 2nd time in a row.
Team Tier List
Punks Ice Cream Bars
Napoli Ever After
Tier I teams are basically locks for the playoffs. Top 3 have 10 wins, #4 has 9. Barring a major streak of failure, all four teams should make the playoffs.
Tier II teams are sitting in playoff position, and thus are in a good spot, but need to beat teams they should beat to maintain their stay.
R(ob)'s Rabid Rats
Tier III teams are on the outside looking in, but are close. A key win and a loss by another team could move these teams into a playoff spot.
Dubs Wubs Wubs
Tier IV teams are a ways out of the playoff picture, but a late, strong run would let them grab a spot. However, they'll need to upset top tier teams instead of beating up on each other.
The Broc Stars
Tier V teams are almost, if not completely, mathematically eliminated from playoff consideration. There is always next year!
Week 14's Interesting Match-Ups
#1 Roma Legionaries vs #1 Punks Ice Cream Bars
The two division crown holders face off this week! Could be a clash for the ages and a battle for a bye week. Roma needs a win more here, however, as they have already lost to fellow 10-winner Napoli Ever After. They have a tough battle, however, as the Punks have NEVER lost a game against a Raw team.
#2 Napoli Ever After vs #3 Quack Attack
The Co-Smackdown Leader (Loses stupid tiebreakers) faces off with the last playoff team in a cross division match-up. Quacky is backed into a corner as a loss here could mean losing a coveted playoff spot! Napoli, however, is just looking to pad their record AND continue their stunning dominance over Raw division teams.
#2 AirBourne Flyers vs #3 The Sullinators
The other 2-3 matchup, this is yet another battle of a team in a good spot vs a team who needs to fight for their spot. Sullinators are coming off a loss last week and look to redeem themselves against another Raw team (while busting up the 4 game win streak of the Flyers). The Flyers, however, are trying to keep pace with the Legionaries. A win and they'll be at least 1 game back, but a loss could push them to 2 back.
Match-Up To Keep Your Eye On
#4 R(ob)'s Rabid Rats vs #4 Jumping Jmen
A classic 4-4 match-up has deeper implications, however. The Rats have more to gain immediately as a win here and a loss by the Quack Attack put the Rats in the #6 overall hole. The Jmen are looking to build on their 1 game winning streak and fight their way back into playoff talks.
Match-Ups to Change The Channel On
#5 Rob's Rhinos vs #6 The Broc Stars
#5 Zero's Nightmares vs #6 Dubs Wubs Wubs
The two 5-6 matches don't look to be much to look at. The #5s are the only teams with something to gain, a win propel them into a better position to snan a playoff spot. However, the #6s are trying to put their league leading losing records behind them.
