The picture is getting clearer

25 09 2009

We’re two-thirds of the way through the fall season…and the clock is ticking for many of the teams if they want to secure a spot in the post-season.  They way it is looking now, a 7-5 record might be what it takes to make the play-offs…and even that might not be enough for some.

So…here’s a take on where things stand after Week 5:

Resting Their Starters

  • Ball Bustahs (7-1)
  • What Up, Biocce? (6-2)
  • The Rake-Jobs (6-2)

It’s hard to imagine any of these teams not making the playoffs…one more win and they are probably assured a spot in the post-season.  What Up, Biocce? is the team to watch here – they’re peaking just as The Rake-Jobs have begun a bit of a slide.

Feeling Good

  • Deboccery (5-3)
  • Generic Bocce Team ( 5-3)
  • Team Schweddy (6-4)

These teams are sitting pretty for securing the other three play-off spots, all controlling their own destiny.  Playing .500 bocce until the end of the season is likely to be enough to get them to the post-season.

 On the Bubble

  • That’s How We Roll (4-4)

With four games left there’s still plenty of bocce for THWR to take a play-off spot.  But a .500 record ain’t gonna cut it…and these folks haven’t been able to break their “lose one, win one” pattern.

No Room for Error

  • The Meatballs (3-4)
  • The Segals ( 3-5)
  • Mumbling Skulls (3-5)
  • Black Magic Crew (3-5)

For these teams to have a realistic chance for the post-season, each of them needs to win 4 games…and for most of that means going undefeated for the last third of the season.  The time for them is now!  And next week. And the week after that.

Looking Toward the Spring

  • Team Matsuflex (1-7)
  • The Royal Order of WAH ( 0-7)

 These teams really aren’t as bad as their records would indicate…but the fact is that any chance they had for the post-season probably evaporated a couple weeks ago.  But just wait until next year!
