Online with TeamLine tonight in Fulton

Tuned into the TeamLine webcast? Railroaders taking on the Oilers at the Yard. Let us know what you think . . . .

The Race is Tight

Only 2.5 games separate all four teams in the OVL just after the mid-point of the season. Who the teams are and how they play to becoming clearer. There are still make-up games for some teams to play, and those will wear on those teams who have to play more before the post season playoffs begin at the end of July.

The Bobcats have the edge in pitching with their team's 2.48 ERA and less error prone than the other teams. Both the Railroaders (67) & Oilers (60) appear to the base running pros for 2011. The Railroaders (.256) then Pirates (.250) are the most efficient at the plate.

I like the Railroaders odds at this point. They've won 3 of last 4 games and seem to really be coming a more complete team. If the pitching improves a bit and the errors gotten under control, we have a good chance to finish strong. We have fewer games to play than any other team. Let's stay in shape and play hard. Any other observations from anyone?

Pirates up next

The Bucco's heading our way for a 4th of July game in the Yard. We are 5-3 on them thus far, let's make it 6 and take the 3rd spot. One step at a time, guys. The Railroaders can do it, let's just get focus and cut the errors out! They have killed us several times and it's such a waste. I think it's time we get out of the cellar and start moving up.
