Your 2006 Champions:
Alomar Division: Edmonton Decepticons
Barfield Division: Pohnpei Papayas
Carter Division: The Wedding Singers


The Edmonton Decepticons pummeled the Gashouse Gorillas 10-2-0 to capture the beloved Alomar Division title. Exceptional hitting by Torii Hunter, J.D. Drew, and even Jamey Carroll earned the Decepticons wins in five of the six hitting categories. Stalwart efforts from Roger Clemens, Freddy Garcia and Tom Glavine assured dominance of the pitching categories. The Gorillas can hold their heads high as the only Alomar team to finish among the top six teams in every season. Arguably, they’re the best team in BBFL history despite never winning a playoff title.

The Mighty Midgets snuck past Mebion Glyndwr 6-6-0 for third place, winning on the dreaded ERA tiebreaker. Slippery Pete defeated WAMCO 9-3-0 for fifth place.

In the Consolation Bracket, #10 Ghost Man On Third whipped the Chatsworth Halos 8-3-0 for the championship. 2003 Champ Toronto Walrus took 9th, Homer Jays Simpsons 10th, AGF 11th, and Billie’s Bashers 12th.


The Pohnpei Papayas squeaked by Magic 9 by a score of 7-5-0 to win the Barfield title. The deciding factor was innings pitched, and both squads trolled through unheralded starts like Pedro Astacio Brian Moehler in an attempt to win. The Papayas nearly swept the offensive categories and slugged a stout .526, while Magic 9 earned four of the pitching categories. Both will join the Alomar Division in 2007.

The Cooney Islanders won the bronze medal by defeating Team Junior Felix 7-4-1. The Islanders lost the runs category by one but won RBIs by two and innings by one-third. The Moscow Rats took fifth place with a 7-5-0 victory over the 1-Tool Wonders and will rejoin Alomar after a one-year sojourn in Barfield.

In the Consolation Bracket championship, the #9-seeded Sweaty Guys defeated the Burlington Mazsters 7-5-0. MulReduxMonkeymen finished 9th, Baseball North 10th, the Vancouver Cyphers 11th, and the Lubumbashi Posse 12th.


The enemy combatants in the Carter championship weren’t just playing for pride but also a promotion to Barfield. The Wedding Singers, who finished third and narrowly missed automatic promotion to Barfield during the regular season, defeated #4 The Shining Force 7-5-0 to win the title and a kick upstairs. Both teams hit extremely well; The Force hit .303 and slugged .505 but lost both categories, while The Singers’ .374 OBP also didn’t earn a point.

The #1 seeded Sexy Underpants won a narrow 7-5-0 battle against #2 Chico’s Bail Bonds for third place. Both had already insured advance to Barfield. The BSL Blue Sox took fifth place over the Block Youngsters with a 7-4-1 win.

In the Consolation Bracket, the #9 Garth Iorg Gremlins beat the New Jersey Stratuses for the championship. The Dangercats took 9th, Big Game Hunters 10th, Trembling Wilburys 11th, and @$$kickers 12th.

The Gremlins are now the two-time defending Carter Consolation Champs!   We're a consolation dynasty in the making - sort of like the Adlai Stevenson of the BBFL. 

Thanks to Scott for another great season.  Now where do we send those dollars?
