7/30/07 Game recap(by Corey): Sac Lunch closed out their wildly successful season by defeating longtime nemesis Biondo's Market in true Sac Style. Pitcher Corey Fields pitched a scoreless 7th inning, thanks to Chris Shrader's robbery - a beautiful leaping catch in the outfield, saving the go-ahead runs. In the bottom of the 7th Aaron Melton (battling a shoulder injury) blasted a triple, and Tom McGough followed with a deep fly ball, scoring Aaron on a walk-off sacrifice fly. In 2007 Sac Lunch overcame injuries, meltdowns, terrible umpires, oppressive heat, in-fighting, shit-talking journalists, substance abuse, and gambling addictions for a surprising turnaround that nobody could have predicted.

Final Record: 10-4 (.714)     3rd Place Finish

Runs Scored: 155, Runs Against: 118

Game 12 - 7/16/07 - Result: W
Sac Lunch 17, D&S Miller Transport 16
MVP: Joe Q, Eric "Tico" Torres, D&S Pitcher

Recap(by Corey): For the entire game the Sacs were losing to a team revamped by D-League Ringers, but luckily the opposing pitcher failed to find the strike zone with even one of his 124 pitches before bring pulled, which led to 7 walks, 3 which scored runs. In the third inning, Joe Q and Manager Corey Fields were found locked in a heated mid-game argument which was inches from boiling over into a full-scale brawl. How ironic that these two would eventually put their differences aside and combine for the game winning play. In a brilliant move, Joe Q benched himself in the 3rd inning, which allowed him to regain his composure and hit a clutch single in the bottom of the 7th. After Tom McGough advanced Joe to 2nd with a single, Corey Fields hit a hard grounder to the shortstop, who inexplicably tried to get the out at 1st. Joe Q's baserunning instincts prevailed, and the Sacs stormed the field as Joe slid uncontested into home. Let us also not forget stellar hitting from Eric and Ryan.

Game 11 - 7/9/07 - Result: W
Sac Lunch 13, Somethin' Sweet 3
MVP: Tom

Recap(by Corey): After another week in which Sac Lunch was plagued with yet another off-field scandal, the boys held their composure during a methodical dismantling of Somethin' Sweet. In the early morning hours of July 5th, Joe Q and his entourage were seen leaving Cheetah's strip club on 8 mile. Moments later, shots were fired in the parking lot. Police have been unable to connect Joe Q to the crime, however he faces tight scrutiny as several members of Joe Kools were seen inside the strip club earlier in the night, leading police to suggest a possible motive. As a result, Liberty Park security will be on lockdown during Sac Lunch's time slot each Sunday. Meanwhile, manager Corey Fields experimented with the lineup, most notably with the return of RHP Tico "The Cat" Torres, who maintained a calm demeanor throughout the contest. The game ended with the Sacs now sporting an amazing 8-3 record - their win total now double the Vegas preseason prediction of a 4-10 record.

Sac Lunch 20, Flexible 5
MVP: Aaron

Recap(by Corey): After a rough first inning, the boys of Sac looked almost bored as they spewed 20 runs over 4 innings, mercying the helpless Flexible for the 2nd time this season. Hitting a whopping .741, every player chipped in at least one hit, and Aaron Melton joined the elite "homerun club". The boys have won 4 of their last 5, but face three difficult games before the end of the season. The championship still remains in sight...

Game 9 - 6/24/07 - Result: L
Sac Lunch 4, Joe Kools 16
MVP: Boof

Recap(by Corey): Boof, Aaron and Ryan continued their torrid hot streaks at the plate, however it wasn't enough to fuel the Sacs this time around. As a team, the boys again shit the bed at the plate. The defense, once revered godlike by the softball deities, once compared to the Great Wall Of China, once feared by E-leaguers across the land, continues to falter in the face of bat-wielding douchebags. The game's only excitement came from a botched strike call by the ump, enraging pitcher Corey Fields, and of course Joseph "Pacman" Querio's attempt from right field to goad the bass player from Biohazard into a mid-game brawl. And for the first time in history, the entire team declined to speak to the press after the game, the only interaction with reporters coming from Joe Q's hard shove on a cameraman after nearly bonging two XL beers. Manager Corey Fields will wait for the league's decision regarding disciplinary action on Mr. Querio, if any.

Game 8 - 6/17/07 - Result: W (extra innings)
Sac Lunch 21, Team Bob Crane 15
MVP: Chris, Aaron

Recap(by Aaron): Heart. That's what it takes to win a game. Not only did Sac Lunch bring their heart, but they brought their namesake.. Sac. 3 hours of blood, sweat, and beers and the nut cluster hit the sheets with a 6th victory in hand and the pride of a 8 inning, wire to wire effort. The spoils of their effort? Q passed out in the parking lot, Aaron icing under his desk, and Chris coughing up batters box sod on his keyboard.

Game 7 - 6/10/07 - Result: W
Sac Lunch 9, Chicken Hawks 8
MVP: Aaron

Recap(by Corey): At 5:52PM on a beautiful summer's day in June, Aaron Melton found himself staring down a nervous and crumbling pitcher. Corey Fields had just cranked a single into shallow left, and solidified himself at 1st base as the winning run. The game was tied, 8-8, it was the bottom of the 7th inning with 2 out. Aaron gazed toward 1st base, nodded, and took a practice swing. Brad Abitheira stood calmy as the 1st base coach, tasked with the formidable job of keeping Corey quiet and calm, and avoiding any unnecessary meltdowns. As the pitch sailed toward the plate, Mr. Clutch delivered a blow heard all the way to Diamond 11. As Corey rounded 3rd, arms triumphantly raised, the Sac Lunch players stormed the field to the sounds of their drunken fans cheering. Anither day, another walk-off double, and Sac Lunch improves to 5-2.

Game 6 - 6/3/07 - Result: W
Sac Lunch 16, Power Rangers 5
MVP: Chris, Tom

Recap(by Corey): Sac Lunch kept its championship dreams alive by annihilating Power Rangers in a stunning victory in front of 15+ fans. Playing in muggy and rainy conditions, the boys shook off a slow start and quickly built a 10-4 lead after 4 innings, thanks in part to a revelatory offensive performance by Chris Shrader. Tom McGough continued his acrobatic play at shortstop to lead a defense some consider to be the greatest ever assembled in E League history. All eyes are on this mercurial team as they head into the middle part of their schedule.

Game 5 - 5/20/07 - Result: L
Sac Lunch 3, Biondo's Market 4
MVP's: Mark, Boof

Recap(by Corey): Despite playing right in front their biggest fan (the beer lady), with a chance to strut their skills and egos, Sac Lunch shit the bed at the plate - hitting a woeful .310, and dropping their on-base % for the season below .500. Perhaps it was the 15 minute delay to start the game, or the cold game-time temperature, but the boys came out flat in front of a live TV audience, which prompted Liberty Park play-by-play announcer Frank Marinara to state "Sac Lunch's performance at the plate is comparable to explosive diarrhea after a night of drinking Natural Light, shots of Old Granddad, topped off with 9 Soft Taco Supremes". But the list of excuses is meaningless. If Sac Lunch does not find a way to get on base and stop leaving runners stranded, it promises to be another long season of mingling at the bottom of the standings with the other E League losers.

Game 4 - 5/13/07 - Result: L
Sac Lunch 2, The Rusty Trombones 9
MVP: Ryan

Recap(by Aaron): Sporting a 3-0 record, Sac Lunch strutted onto the greatest softball stage in the western third of north by southeastern Michigan. Field 3 would play host to the showdown of these lukewarm rivals. Within shouting distance of "The Dugout Bar and Grille," Sac Lunch would face their greatest challenge of the season, The Rusty Trombones. Most men will tell you, the last thing a man wants is a another man blowing in his anus, nonetheless playing his dong like an instrument. Well, when you look into the eyes of 12 men who not only enjoy this, but celebrate it as though it were a child’s birthright, you'll be staring embarrassment right in the face. Both teams stepped onto the field and showed their hands, Sac Lunch was holding a pair of jokers. This game awakened the demons of Sac Lunch past. The sports world will be expecting a more spirited performance from Nut Brunch this weekend, or they may find themselves in the basement searching for their Clown Puncher jerseys.

Game 3 - 5/6/07 - Result: W
Sac Lunch 13, D&S Miller Transport 2
MVP: Eric "Tico" Torres

Recap(by Corey): Sac Lunch continued to show why their 1st place position is no fluke, and is nothing short of the most amazing season-to-season turnaround in Men's E League history. Confidently going about their business, the opposition was held to only 2 runs, the suffocating defense no match for the weak bats of D&S Miller Transport. Eric "Tico" Torres earned the MVP for calmy executing Sac Lunch's first "true" double play. Offensively, it was another fair outing, with a steady supply of base hits from Corey, Boof, Tom, Chris, and Ryan. The true test for this surprising team will come as they enter the toughest part of their schedule in the weeks to come.

Game 2 - 4/29/07 - Result: W
Sac Lunch 7, Somethin' Sweet 6
MVP: Aaron, Tom

Recap(by Joe Q): It took all seven innings for the "Cardiac Sacs" to pull out a 7 to 6 win this past Sunday. Tom McGough and Aaron Melton delivered big in the bottom of the 7th inning. McGough lead off the inning with a bloop double, followed by an infield single by Corey Fields. Then, with 2 on and 1 out, Melton punished both the ball and right fielder with a game ending double. This achievement gives Sac Lunch their first ever winning streak.

Game 1 - 4/22/07 - Result: W (Mercy)
Sac Lunch 18, Flexible 6
MVP: Aaron

Recap(by Corey): Sac Lunch opened its 2007 season with a punishing mercy win against Flexible, featuring a 4 for 4 outing from Aaron Melton and his new swing, and homeruns from Mark, Corey, and Boof (who also hit one over the fence - a first in Sac Lunch history). A stellar defensive effort all around was also crucial to securing this overwhelmingly lopsided season opener. The post-game beer intake was also impressive, and much higher than any game in 2006.
