Playoff Time! Tuesday, Aug 23 2016

 

 

Well after a long a grueling hot summer things are about to get even hotter!  With a rematch of last year's monumental upset by All Day vs. TBirds on the horizon.  We should be in for a thrilling round 1 of the playoffs.  Tbirds have been battling for 2nd place all season as first was sealed by Spartans a while back.  After a disastorous regular season finale the last two season that saw them drop from #1 to #3 seed in 2015 and again from 2 to 3 this year.  Will they make history like last season and collapse this year.  Will ALL DAY relive the magic of 2015 and make another historic upset? Find out Saturday.

 

 

The second matchup features two teams who have championship calibre talent.  Forget the records folks.  Make no mistake about it these two teams at full strenght are title worthy.  Playoffs we expect nothing less than a full roster and then some.  The DC squad will feature the defening champs looking to repeat.  Panthers are still looking for their first title in CSL.

TBirds vs. ButcherZ

 

the battle for second place comes down to this exciting matchup between the birds and the butcherz. Both teams have been very hot as of late and this matchup should be one for the ages! what do we expect from this matchup? lots of trash talking, high scoring games, some long hits. We expect a nice showdown between Mike Kaufman and Nafi Mashriqi. The keys to this game will be around the outfield of each team and who cleans up better, and lets not forget the pitchers and how each ace sizes up. In the end it will be a split between the two and the birds will run away with 2nd place.  

Score Prediction:

game 1: 22-18 TBirds

Game 2: 17-13 Butcherz

Spartans vs. All Day

 

Two teams whose had two different directions all season. a nice end of the season matchup between the 1st place team and the 6th place team. The spartans maybe treating this game as a scrimmage for the playoffs, while the boys in red should treat this a scrimmage game to fix their flaws for the playoffs. We believe the games will come down to the infield of each team to help take care of the small hits and dunkers that usually are the difference for the game results. We expect spartans to take 2 easily and get ready for the playoffs. Though, All Day will get 2 quick losses, this will be a good prep for their first round matchup, in which they have a good shot to pull an upset. Lets just say Take 2  

Score Prediction:

game 1: 22-8 Spartans

DC vs. Panthers

These teams squared off just a little while ago and it was a great regular season matchup. They meet again a couple weeks later and we expect the same results. But the results will come down to which team shows up for the champs as at time they look great, while other times they look atrocious. The key will come down to who plays the outfield for DC, as its usually their difference maker. What we worry about for the panthers is the attendance of Nick, who has been the x factor for all their games. But expect this to be a battle of pitchers (Masoom vs Salman) and lets see which team can hit it over the fence more. Like last time we expec the same results and a great preview for the playoffs.     

Score Prediction:

game 1: 15-7 Panthers

Game 2: 14-10 DC

TBirds vs. Panthers

(Game at Cantiage Park in Hicksville - Field D)

 

The TBirds just can’t get a consistent starting line-up while the Panthers are in search of a dedicated 10.  But we hear this week the Panthers are pumped to take on their friends and finally show Waqas and company that they are better at full strength.  The community sees the Panthers back up their talk with two wins led by Fatehser, Leo, Shafi, and Masoon.  With Masoon pitching, this has given the Panthers the stability they needed.  TBirds have a lot of players on their roster but each week there are evident flaws in their defense and offense.  Can Captain Farooq finally determine his 10 best?  Let’s see.

Score Prediction:

game 1: 15-10 Panthers

Game 2: 14-7 Panthers

Spartans vs. Diamond Cutterz

 

This potential finals contest will be intense.  The last time they played it was a marathon and there was trash talking and tense moments.  Both games were very close and the series was split.  Now comes this week – we expect both teams to have a full squad and come out swinging.  Captain Salman is already on record saying that DC is better at full squad.  Meanwhile Captain Junior tweeted we do our talking on the field.  The CSL experts see this battle to be split with good old school ball which means line drives, hard slides, and aggressive base running.  The X factor may come down to Salman’s pitching.  At times his flat pitches serve up easy boppers for the opponents.  Spartans have too many line drive hitters not to avoid that (i.e. Abdullah, Mike P).  Will Captain Salman adjust?    

Score Prediction:

game 1: 11-9 spartans

Game 2: 12-10 dc

ButcherZ vs. All Day

The ButcherZ are playing great ball this season.  Their offense has multiple weapons and defense at times plays stellar.  Overall they have matched the expectations this season mainly due to the play of Sadesh, Ray, Gul, etc.  Their opponent All Day has been a complete mess.  For all the accomplishments for this young loveable franchise received, it has been tarnished due to the recent weak play.  But as Captain Aqib says boldly – ‘All Day is made for the playoffs’.  Well luckily for him all teams clinch the playoffs in the CSL.  Aqib’s prediction may come true but this week he and the boys in red are getting a beating by the men in Green.  Can Mo aka of All Day save the big red machine?

Score Prediction:

game 1: 14-7 butcherz

Game 2: 15-5 butcherz

TBirds vs. All Day

 

The TBirds and All Day will always have that one moment in time in CSL history where the young All Day members shocked CSL nation and defeated the big and bad TBirds in Rd 1 of the playoffs.  That moment may live on but this season All Day has struggled to get consistent wins while the TBirds are trying to rebuild around David and Adrian.  At this point TBirds are the better team.  This series we see the TBirds grinding out a sweep of the offensive-less All Day.  Both games should be close early but the offense of TBirds will take over late led by Ozzie, Omar, and David.  Score Prediction:

game 1: 18-6 tbirds

Game 2: 14-5 tbirds

 

Results/Recap:

TBirds win via forfeit.  Can All Day get their act together?

Spartans vs. Panthers

 

This should be a fun series amongst our Dominican brothers from both sides.  The Panthers are still riding the suave play of the ‘Natural’ in Leo Cepeda (Season 1 MVP).  Meanwhile the Spartans have added a few nice Dominicans themselves in Abdullah and his bro.  We hear both teams are facing attendance issues – however, the series should be intense as the rivalry dates back a few years.  At the end we see a split.  Game 1 we see the Spartans taking advantage of a weak infield defense of the Panthers and win running away.  Game 2 the Panthers will bounce back due to the strong play of Shafi and Fatehsher and hold on for a close victory.   

Score Prediction:

game 1: 15-9 spartans

Game 2: 14-12 Panthers

ButcherZ vs. DC

The ButcherZ offense is dangerous led by the commander himself.  Their infield defense led by Sadesh is solid.  However, they continue to make mental miscues late in the game which has cost them a number of wins this season.  If they can put it together, they can’t be stopped.  Meanwhile the DC is up to their usual thing by getting their ringers to attend so they can strike when it counts which is during the post season.  Captain Salman is quietly thinking about a repeat.    This series will be intense as multiple players on DC’s championship team are now on the ButcherZ and that will add to the excitement.  The CSL experts see a split with a lot of trash talking in a good old fashion ball game.

Score Prediction:

game 1: 14-8 butcherz

Game 2: 12-10 DC        

 

Results/Recap:

   final Score:

game 1: 16-4 ButcherZ

Game 2: 6-4 Butcherz (rain shortened)
