    BASEBALL One Man Thrill Ride

    UCONN Baseball Eliminates Coastal Carolina, as Christian "The Viper" Fedko's big fly proves venomous.

    UCONN Baseball Eliminates Coastal Carolina, as Christian "The Viper" Fedko's big fly proves venomous.

    Don't look now, but Uconn Baseball is smoking hot.  In a back and forth game which saw both teams grab a slice of momentum, it was eventually Christian Fedko's absolute missile over the wall in left that would prove to be the game winner in the bottom of the 8th.

    Uconn which was on the brink of elimination, was able to push the season forward as they wore out a tough Coastal Carolina team and in doing so earned another shot at the University of Washington tonight.  It won't be an easy task by any means, with Uconn having to grab two wins to advance to the Super Regional, but if anyone is up to the challenge, it's this seasons Uconn squad.

    In the middle of the action all weekend long has been "Viper" aka Christian Fedko.  This kid is just dripping in swag right now and throughout the regional has provided a massive spark to the Huskies.  Today he was in the middle of the action again all day long, while providing the final venom to Coastal Carolina's season.  After a massive momentum shift in which Coastal Carolina came storming back on Uconn, Fedko stepped up just when a sliver of doubt was casting over the stadium, and checked into Smashville Tennessee with a no doubter to left that silenced the crowd.  The way Viper teed off you would have thought he's done it a thousand times, however it was his first jack of the year to make the situation even more special. 

    Uconn would surrender a few wall scrapers in the top of the 9th, but nothing damaging to move onto a showdown with Washington in a night cap.  Uconn used the long ball multiple times today to beat back any advances by CCU and will look to keep the gears of war burning tonight.  Isaac Feldstein was a monster today with a moon shot and 4 RBIs, while Anthony Prato smacked a ding dong of his own.  P.J. Poulin, who's the closer, was great through 6.0 IP surrendering 2 ER to go with 6 Ks.

    Tune into Espn tonight to watch The Viper and his fellow Huskies look to extend their summer into the Super Regional.

     

     

    Savage Spotlight: Roger Dorn

    Savage Spotlight: Roger Dorn

    First off if you think that Roger Dorn was a beta, then you're a beta.  Dorn was a savage his entire career and was so big league it hurt.  Some haters like to say that Dorn was just a pussy, engulfed in a massive contract; a true burden to the Indians. 

    Fact: betas don't get fat contracts and hot ass tail like Mrs. Dorn. People that get fat contracts and big time coin, produce on and off the field.

    Fact # 2 from the haters: Mrs. Dorn banged out Wild Thing, how can he be an absolute savage alpha male?

    Response:  Ummmm pretty sure the only reason she banged out Wild Thing was because she saw that dirty dog Roger taking two bimbos into the closet during the post game celebration on live television.  Dorn was getting more ass than a New York City park bench, and his wife was just lashing out, it happens.  Don't hate the player, hate the game.  

    Fact # 3 from the haters: Dorn took no pride in defense.

    Response:  Ummm fuck spring training.  It's Dorn hes a star.  When Lou tried to hit him with the push-up punishment, savvy Dorn hit him with the contract stating he didn't have to do push-ups.  Contracts don't lie, and look at guys like Bumgarner who rip motorcycles and violate contracts, shit gets sloppy fast.  Plus, when the lights were the brightest, Dorn and his glove were both present when it mattered the most.

    Dorn was an electric member of the clubhouse and was big into hazing, as he was all up in Ricky Vaughn's shit from day one.  Not condoning hazing, but usually alpha males are conducting it, just saying.  Plus was it really hazing, or just Dorn being a veteran big leaguer?  Show up to any new job or environment looking like a clown and its bound to draw attention from the senior members of that establishment.  Dorn was just doing his due diligence and letting the Rookie fuck boy know where he was on the totem pole.

    All in all Dorn was an Absolute Savage.  He had a hot wife, banged hot chicks on the side, was one of the boys and produced in the spotlight.  He honestly could have blown up the entire clubhouse and knocked out Ricky on the mound after the incident, but delivered one of the best, most heroic lines of all time. 

     All hail Roger Dorn and let us embrace this Absolute Savage, hot boy bad boy maniac.  

     

    RUMBLE IN THE BRONX: YANKS SNAG GAME 1 AND A SHARE OF THE AL EAST LEAD

    RUMBLE IN THE BRONX: YANKS SNAG GAME 1 AND A SHARE OF THE AL EAST LEAD

    For the first time since 2002, the Yankees and the Red Sox squared off with the two best records in the MLB.  The two teams didn't disappoint either, with the Yankees leaning on their two Xerxes clones, Judge and Stanton to handle their business offensively while the 24 year old certified ace, Luis Severino took care of business on the mound in a redemption game with 11ks.

    Stanton kicked off the scoring in the bottom of the 2nd doing his best Benjamin Martin impression from The Patriot, by launching a tomahawk swing on a pitch up in the zone, and sending it screaming over the wall in left.  He'd help the cause once again the bottom of the 4th, sending one flying over the wall again to make the score 2-0.

    The Red Sox were resilient however and in the 5th Benny Biceps was able to plate Eduardo Nunez on an RBI single.  In the 7th it was that guy Mookie Betts, who is having an MVP caliber year so far, driving a RBI triple to knot the game up at 2 all.  Mookie had a few great at bats in this game, and I was really impressed when he went down in the zone and dug out an off speed pitch off of Sevy who was dealing.  

    With the crowd pumping with energy, the Yanks once again behind Neil Walker, were able to get the ball moving in the bottom of the 7th setting the stage for a Joe Kelly vs Aaron Judge showdown.  Judge wound up the winner in this match-up, driving in Walker for the eventual game winning run.  Before Kelly even entered this inning, Heath Hembree was all sorts of ate up, walking and balking like a little beta soy boy, creating a less than opportune situation for Kelly.

    Robertson would actually nail down the win in this one, with Chappy getting the save.  Pomeranz had a solid outing for the Sox, and was really only touched up by Stanton, allowing 4 hits with 6ks through 6.0 IP. 

    UP NEXT: With Price doing Price things, Porcello will slide down in the rotation to take on Masahiro Tanaka in 7:05 ET tilt in the Bronx. 

     

    SAVAGE FANTASY TALK: JOSH HADER IS A MONSTER AND HOW LONG RELIEVERS CAN TURN AROUND YOUR STAFF

    SAVAGE FANTASY TALK: JOSH HADER IS A MONSTER AND HOW LONG RELIEVERS CAN TURN AROUND YOUR STAFF

    As a Josh Hader owner I am well aware of just how filthy he is.  Last night he finally got the love he deserves on the national scene, by throwing 2.2 innings, striking out 8 and earning the save while allowing zero runs.  This year through 18.0 IP, Hader has a cool 39ks, good for an average of 19.5 Ks per 9 IP.  Last year being his first in the bigs, Hader has a career 107 Ks in 65.2 IP with a K/9 ratio of 14.7.

    Hader plain and simple is a monster and has gotten his Yahoo ranking up to 26 overall.  However as he doesn't project to be the teams closer once Corey Knebel returns from an early hamstring injury, that doesn't mean by any stretch that his fantasy value will diminish.

    Hader as I like to dub this style of relief pitcher is the ultimate eraser guy; meaning he can clean up a messy start from a SP all the while driving down your WHIP and ERA while mopping up Ks.  Hader isn't your traditional one and done reliever, and often times stretches out for 1.0 + IP routinely.  He will blow past 100 Ks barring he can stay healthy and will continue to pick up occasional saves even when Knebel is back.  He will probably start to pick up a few wins as well once he slides into that specialized role and comes in tied up games in the 6th or 7th.  

    If Hader is available in your league (he shouldn't be) you need to own him now.  We have seen this trend of dominant, non-closer relievers, like Andrew Miller who literally can turn around a so-so pitching staff and turn your rotation into a contender.  The waiver wire has multiple guys available so if your staff is sucking, seek out a dominant reliever and utilize www.closermonkey.com to stay ahead of the closer carousel.  

    MAKE ROOM ON YOUR CALENDAR BECAUSE THE MASCAC BASEBALL PLAYOFFS ARE SET TO BEGIN

    MAKE ROOM ON YOUR CALENDAR BECAUSE THE MASCAC BASEBALL PLAYOFFS ARE SET TO BEGIN

    It all boils down to this, the final showdown.  All the blood, sweat, tears and hours of Fortnite you logged instead of going out on a Friday night because you had a conference double header on Saturday has all paid off.  

    As you walk into your classes in your team affiliated sweat pants and baseball gear, the women are whispering.  The beta soy boys who don't understand baseball because its "boring" suddenly are envious.  You're officially a rock star, and the MASCAC playoffs are your stage.

    However, there can only be one main event, and this year it's Westfield State who is once again proving their resiliency and durability, earning a first round bye.  Anthony Crowley paces a strong offense for the Owls leading the league in multiple offensive categories to include everyone's favorite, home runs at 10.  Big Dog John Gegetskas led the league in ERA (1.70), strikeouts (76) and wins (7).  This absolute savage also tossed 5 CGs and nearly struck out an average of 12 batter per 9.  Westfield has to like their chances early especially with having two alpha males on both sides of the ball.

    Grabbing the other bye and the second overall seed is the Mass Maratime Buccaneers.  Led by head coach Mike Kelley, a former Buc legend himself, and apprentice to the great Bob Corradi, the boys from the Buzzards Bay, who worship the gigantic wind turbine, are once again a threat.  Playing classic Buc baseball, you can expect a disciplined and grinding approach.  Logan Sullo is having a big year with the stick, and sports a very impressive 23/9 BB/K ratio, exemplifying the caliber or players you will face at Mass Maratime.  

    Framingham State is the #3 seed, and has seen their team drastically improve over the years, playing in the championship last year, and gaining immeasurable amounts of experience in doing so.  Hot boy Aaron Williams is an absolute beast offensively, hitting at a .390 clip while torching the base paths Willie Mays Hayes style with 24 swipes.  

    Salem State cruises in with the 4th seed, and is always a threat.  While they haven't hit for much power this year, this team can still hit, and as a team are sitting at a .302 clip.  Mac Daniel Singleton and Joe White pace an offense, that can definitely sneak up on you if you take them lightly.  They also have the pitching to take a first and second rd game, with Stephen Keskinidis and Steve Leavitt turning in very nice seasons.  

    The #5 squad in the best tourney in Mass, is THE FSU (Fitchburg State University).  Obviously the home of Thrill Ride, the green and gold are hungry to make some noise this year.  A lot of that will ride on the shoulders of the freshman Ryan Towle who has had a great freshman campaign tossing the pill. The offense will need to be timely and the defense solid, if the boys want to push into the second round.

    #6 is the men of MCLA.  Led offensively by Jeff Bink and Logan Rumbolt (great name) they wont wont mash you to death with taters, but speed is definitely a factor, swiping 40 bags on the season.  Scrappy is a good style of baseball, and with a solid pitching effort, anything is possible in the MASCAC.

    That rounds out playoff preview and best of luck.  Thrill Ride is pumped for this tourney to kick off, and wants to promote you guys any way possible so please reach out!  Look for this article on all our social media at Absolute Savage Inc and please contribute any content you have!
