For two seasons in a row the Pranktown Busriders have been one of the best cosmic teams. This season, however, with little or no adjustment to the squad, hard times have befallen the Busriders and they find themselves sitting near the Middleleague basement. The Eden Bohemians had a better than average season last year but this season it looks like they will be the Middleleague basement dweller.
For those that believe pitching is 90% of the game and hitting the other 50%, well these two teams tell the tale differently. Both have decent pitching staffs but neither has any offense whatsoever. This game highlights this fact precisely.
The Busriders are strange. They have a couple of awesome homerun sluggers (Browning and Foster) but these guys almost never hit a roundtripper with anyone on base. It doesn't matter where they are placed in the batting order.
A combined nine hits in nine innings and nothing better than a single was swatted by any batter. It is true that Casano and Poe are top-of-the-line hurlers but come on, these are artists and writers, cultural elites, surely they can muster more punch than a few weak grounders that had eyes and just barely got beyond the infield grass. Even the two runs the Busriders scored in the sixth inning were manufactured around two walks.
It looks like both these teams need to find some offensive capability if they expect to be competitive in the Middleleague.
