All Day vs. Butcherz
The Butcherz in week 1 soundly swept the All Day team. This series will be a test to find out how far the All Day team has come since the season started. The Butcerz mantra is that their hitting is awesome but on fielding they just can’t find a rhythm. Specifically, the weakness is on their right side. So if the All Day bros want to get off to a good start they can focus there.  We expect this to be a slugfest where the scoring will be high and defense to be subpar. The Butcherz still have a better squad due to their experience and hitting. This will be hard to contain for the All Day team over the course of two games. Predictions: Game 1: Butcherz 15, All Day 9. Game 2: Butcherz 17, All Day 12. 
Series 2

Panthers vs. Thunderbirds
 Forget what happened in week 1. Since then the Panthers have added some oomph to their line-up lead by Tony aka Moe. Meanwhile the Birds have been playing very consistent all season long. No matter what the challenge, they have overcome it. In fact, they have showcased 15 different ball players at various positions. This contest we expect to be a gem. Both teams are sound defensively and offensively. Captain Waqas is having an MVP type of season (.824 BA, 22 RBIs). The question is can he get his team ready for a Panther squad that is unpredictable? The community sees this as a split because the Panthers offense will present challenges for the Tbirds’ right side of the infield. Predictions: Game 1: Panthers 13, TBirds 5. Game 2: TBirdss 15, Panthers 9.

Diamond Cuttaz vs. Clockwork
During the pre-season many thought the CW and DC would be the best two teams in CSL and will likely play in the finals. Well that still might be the case as both teams still have yet to have their full roster. Could this be the week that the stacked rosters appear and look to send a message? Either way we expect another split as both of these squads know the game pretty well. Clockwork has a nice mixture of speed and power led by David and Junior and Mike. DC has a nicely balanced line-up led by Faizan and Kunal. The DC guys know what it takes to win in CSL. Predictions: Game 1: DC 13, CW 10. Game 2: CW 10, DC 9.

All Day vs. Panthers
The All Day bros have an excellent left side of the defense. If you want to have success versus them, avoid the left side. But if you go anywhere else, they will buckle. They have speed and a great attitude Their pitcher is deceptive and won’t walk anyone. This series vs. the Panthers will be winnable for All Day if they can limit the fielding blunders. The Panther bring speed and high IQ – for which the All Day cannot match just yet. Therefore, the Panthers should be able to squeak out a couple of wins against the upstart All Day.   Predictions: Game 1: Panthers 16, All Day 4. Game 2: Panthers 18, All Day 7. 
Series 2
2 Games

Field 3
ClockWork vs. Butcherz
 Two offensive minded teams will look to tear the covers off the ball. We expect this to be a high scoring affair with the Butcherz starting off strong but fizzling in the latter innings in both games. The CW team is too loaded to even lose a game. MVP Junior, Hanny, and Mike are too versatile for the Butcherz to handle. We predict CW to win both games unless Captain Mo can come up with a defensive plan to stop CW’s bats.  Predictions: Game 1: CW 13, Butcherz 8. Game 2: CW 14, Butcherz 6.   
Series 3
2 Games

Field 2
Diamond Cuttaz vs. TBirds
Well we finally arrived at the game of the week. Both teams know each other very well. They both have excellent pitching and powerful bats. Tbirds make their living off singles and moving guys along. DC simply goes for the fences, as they picked up Faizan and a few other boppers. This series is certainly a possible preview of the finals.  We expect multiple lead changes and likely the home team will win in the last at bat. The X factor of Tbirds will be if their regulars will attend. If that is the case, then DC has little chance. Regardless, we predict a split with the home team winning each game. Predictions: Game 1: TBirds 15, DC 13. Game 2: DC 13, TBirds 12.

Week 4 Results And Recaps Monday, May 11 2015

 

Series: Clockwork / Panthers:
Game 1 was a surprise to many with the Panthers withstanding the offense of Clockwork and holding them to less than double digits. Though we did hear Manny of CW didn’t attend. For the Panthers it was Leo and the timely hitting of Fatehsher that was the key for their win. Game 2, it was a different story… CW bought out the bats and took advantage of a weak defense of the Panthers. On offense it was Moose and Hanny getting the timely hits to salvage a split.
Final Scores:
Game 1: - Panthers 12, CW 9
Game 2: - CW, Panthers 8
 
Series: Diamond Cuttaz/ Butcherz
Diamond Cuttaz introduced some new players and basically exploited the defense of the Butcherz and gain a sweep. Both games would have been closer if the Butcherz made some timely plays.
Final Scores:
Game 1: Diamond Cuttaz 22, Butcherz, 2
Game 2: Diamond Cuttaz 18, Butcherz. 6
 
Series: Thunderbirds/All Day:
The TBirds added Omar (from PPs CBL30) but he didn’t come up as big as advertised. But he did help them win game 2 with some nice line drives. Overall the Tbirds took advantage of the rookies with timely hits and aggressive running on the base pads to sweep both games. Noor played SS for the first time and seemed to be a natural fit. The player of each game was Alex of TBirds. His pitching and smooth hitting was too much for All Day to handle. Speaking of All Day, they have superb fielders at 3B, SS, and LF. Once they shore up their other key positions this classy rookie team will be a force for years to come because they have excellent team chemistry and enthusiasm.
Final Scores:
Game 1: TBirds 17, All Day 5
Game 2: TBirds 14, All Day 0

Panthers vs. Clockwork
The Panthers are no longer winless. Captain Amin finally realized that in order to win you need players. So he acquired some good ones like Amjad, Shebaz, and Moe aka Tony. This week they take on the big boys of CW. The community expects this to be a slugfest where CW will take both games due to their diverse offense. Their performance last week vs. the Tbirds shows they have no weak links top to bottom. Especially on offense. Predictions: Game 1: CW 18, 10. Game 2: CW 19, Panthers 12.

Field 2
Diamond Cuttaz vs. Butcherz
 After a near scare vs. the All Day team, the DC team will take on the pesky Butcherz. The Butcherz can hit the ball but their defense needs to be shored up if they want to make some noise in CSL post season. Simply put, defense wins games. This match-up vs. the DC should be back and forth with multiple lead changes. We hear the DC may be missing some players but that will not change our prediction as Shadesh and Manju of DC will offset the likes of Mo Buddy, and Cody from Butchers.  Predictions: Game 1: Butcherz 11, DC 10. Game 2: DC 14, Butcherz 8.   
Series 3

All Day vs. TBirds
Well look out: The veteran and energy filled Tbirds will take on the younger version of them. But this is softball – usually the older guys prevail. Captain Aqib certainly has the attention of his team, as we hear them across the fields cheering at every positive play.   Imagine the noise meter level when they win.  With Aqib, Adil, and Syed they have the offense but the problem is on the defensive side.  This contest vs. TBirds will be tough for All Day to overcome because of the experience Tbirds have under their belt. The CSL community sees TBirds taking both.     Predictions: Game 1: TBirds 15, All Day 4. Game 2: TBirds 16, All Day 2.
