Henri Francois was the Series MVP as his 1.26 ERA in handcuffing Mountie bats in most situations.  As a matter of fact July 23, 2016,  is the date that he last took an L in a game he pitched notching 9 Wins in a row.

Congrats to Mike T. for his championship season.  Also, to Alex W., who got about as close as you can get to winning it all.

 

The Most Dominant GLBL Pitcher?

abstract pitcher                      Henri Francois

Henri Francois, born in Montague, Prince Edward Island, is perhaps one of the more dominating pitchers in what has been dubbed ‘a pitchers league’.  Below are the CAREER categories that Henri leads the GLBL:

ERA: 1.68

Winning Percentage:  80%

Walks/Hits IP:  0.83

Opponents B.Avg:  .194

Opponents OBP:  .226

Opponents OPS:  .501

Wins Above Replacement:  8.8

If you are wondering which direction he is heading (up or down) consider that in the last 38 IP he’s yielded one run, a solo homer to CHI’s Brett Garrett.

 

Spring Training Looms

Spring Training….about to launch.  Can the Caribou defend?  Will the Eagles take the next step?  The Waveriders have signed a lot of free agents.  Will it be enough?   The Maples appear to be the most improved team…by a long shot.    Who is flying under the radar?  Lots of candidates to be sure.

Dave Corbin is on FIRE

Owen Sound (3-3) is on a 3 game skid but don’t blame that on 26 year old Dave Corbin from Los Angeles, CA.  He went 4 for 7 in the 14 inning heartbreak loss to Windsor when the Vigilantes staged an uprising in the bottom half of the inning scoring 3 runs to steal it 11-10.  Corbin has gotten a hit in every game with multi-hits in all but the opener.  His gaudy numbers:

.481/.500/.556   The GLBL will be following Corbin’s streak as heads to Kingston for a 3 game set.
