We are old, we are wise, we are Rockem Sockem.

The 13th season, in the year 2014. Get done with it as here is the final standings:
Yeah shit is tight, want to see the full standings and see how REALLY close things are? Ok here you go:
Let's dig in a bit deeper.
There is something that needs to be said: this league has had a lot of things…but it has never had a champion fall to the bottom. From First To Worst: The Mike Ryniec 2014 Story highlights our season. In a tight league maybe focusing strictly on pitching wasn't the wisest move, but there is a fine line between 12 and 1 as we all know. Vig had a mixed season Trout did what he could, but still disappointed in the end. Hey speaking of 'disappoint', that's me there in 10th, good number, miserable season.

That said, we were all tight in the bottom middle of the pack, Eben Birdie Tom and Bull were ricocheting all around. It was cut throat and the line between 6 and 9 is negligible. Teehee, 69. Teehee. When we jump to to 5 we get to the clear top of the league as Jeff made an effort but was still bested by McNally who had a great season and unfortunately still has to pay for eats in 4th place.

Surprise Surprise as Pedro says, the Daddy of the league, BK gets to step up to the podium and sports the bronze medal with his third place finish (cheater). Don Fatone needs to get insane props for going most of the season in first place without a bullpen, unfortunately with injuries he couldn't hold on to the top spot. Finally we see the majestic Moon. Congratulations Jay Moon on winning your second Rockem Sockem title.

Well deserved and hard fought, this year was far from a runaway as Don was nipping at your heels the final weekend but in the end the heart attack crew got you the Eeeets a Boat. Well done and congrats. Now don't let Everett or Jackson break it (but do let them put Star Wars Lego guys on it). Hell of a season boys…see you again for the 14th.


Continuing a tradition that is Meh at best…unlike this picture which is Boosh at worst.

MVRSFP - The Most Valuable Rockem Sockem Fantasy Player goes to….

Jose Altuve- In a year when the winner had more of a team than a superstar carrying him the votes were split in my brain. Kershaw or Trout couldn't win since Mike and Vig could have finished 12th and 11th respectively without them. So lets look to the little man who ended the season ranked 5th overall and got BK into Free Eats, Congrats Gigante, you may be three apples high, but you won this fake award, so that's something.

Rockem Sockem CY - Goes to the best fantasy pitcher this year, and the voters have spoken:

Clayton Kershaw- He may not have helped Mike out of the wood paneled basement of Rockem, but when you are #1 in overall standings you deserve this miniscule acknowledgment.

The Zeddemore Poles Coach of the Year Award: Goes to the best Rockem Manager (named for Winston's Historic 11 point last day jump in 2008):

Jay Moon- In a year where he had some surprises (Bradley, V-Mart), there really wasn't one guy who dominated and if you can win the league like that you deserve the best manager crown.

The Eric Hinske Memorial (he's dead right?!) goes to the Biggest Bust of the Year:

Chris Davis- As with every year this one could have a lot of candidates: Hanley, Votto, Byrce, Prince, CarGanzoBeans. all got consideration, but I am giving it to Davis because he wasn't hurt all season…he just sucked then cheated. If Bk gets 20 more HR's and a 270 AVG from his first round pick he could have won his 26th Rockem Championship.

The Edwin Encarnacion Elation goes to the biggest positive surprise of the year who was drafted late (after 10th Round)

Tie- Victor Martinez, Michael Bradley, John Lester- This is where J Moon won the league. Late round picks who played up to first round level. Congrats on picking out these lucky seasons Moon, it all went your way in 2014…except for pissing the bed and sleeping outside…ZING!

The Nomar Broken Everything Award (Player's injuries who sink a team):

Masahiro Tanaka- Another award that every year has tons of candidates: Votto, Prince, Byrce, Your Mom's but if Tanaka stays healthy, even without a bullpen Fatty would have won this thing, so we gotta give him this fake award. Way to fuck up douche bag.

The Cliff Lee Award : (FA Pickup that changes the league, named for Bull snatching Lee in Rockem 7)

Chris Carter- We all had him at one point during hte season but BK (of course) had him at the right time. The disappoint that Davis was, evened out in the surprise bat Carter provided. So enjoy the free eats BK, Hurricane Carter helped swing you there.
