Big Congrats to Cakes for their 4th overall championship and the first back-to-back champs since the Moose Knuckle Punishers in 2007-2008.Year-End-Awards
Most ImprovedNominees: Steve Donnelly, Sean Keough, Turtle, Mike Brash, Ian Monaghan
We had some pretty good competition for this award in 2019. Keough got his woes from the back end of his Mad Mac days out of his system. Turtle went from league bottom feeder to a solid shooter on the Yogurt Slingers. Steve Donnelly really stepped his game up this year with an expanded role on Mad Mac Vending. But the winner of this award came down to Mike Brash and Ian Monaghan. Ian really was a rock for BAM, stepping up his game from his Bombers days. But the award has to go to Brash. He went from above average shooter to border line "elite." He was a force for the Nature Boys.
Winner: Mike Brash
Runner-Up: Ian Monaghan
Rookie of the Year
Nominees: Rich Felix, Chris Shuster, Jack (Billy Goats), Ron Birkmire, Timmy Dugan, Mike MaischWinner: Joe Imz
Each of the nominees really could win this category for their own reasons. All had averages running from a 2.2 to a 2.5. But it always doesn't come down to average. As most rookies do, all of them started to turn it on towards the end of the season and into the playoffs. I was most impressed with Mike Maisch and Rich Felix shooting lights out towards the end of the season.
Winner: Rich Felix
Runner-Up: Mike Maisch
Nominees: Pat Coyle, Vinny Cardona, Mike Cardona, Joe Imz, Colin Cooke
Cakes dominated their playoff run. Going 21-7 in their 3 weeks to steamroll to their 4th chip. Who deserves Playoff MVP? Let's flip a three-way coin. They all stepped up huge during the 3 week running putting nightly averages well above the 4.0 mark. But who was most valuable? Is anyone that "valuable" to their team when their team is crushing everyone? It's like their greatness almost washed each other out over their dominance. So when you look at "most valuable" to their team, I don't think the league runner-ups get there without the way their top dog played. And I like being a little controversial with these picks... so bitch away next time you see me!! (Cakes have won enough already and are still counting that cash).
