Basse Pointe Bandits

Looking through the papers this evening I noticed that the Bandits have a losing record. The good news is, we are in first place. Weird.

I'm in Fountain Bleu, France getting ready to leave for Marseille. Fountain Bleu swept the Diamonds all 3 games taking Le Diamant to a 18-22 record, and second place.

Herve here

Hey Sports fans, the Le Marin Waveriders have won 3 in a row and are now knocking on the first place door of the Le Lorraine Pirates.

I've been on a mini hot streak as my average is now up to .333. Here is my batting log. My defense has not been that good this year and I'm hearing about it from the staff. Four errors at 2b and three at 3b.

Vial

Herve here....one of the reasons the Waveriders have been so hot is because of this kid Habib Vial. Back in 1960 he came to Le Diamant from Quebec and this kid can hit. He's leading the league in batting and, get this.....has a 34 game active hit streak going.

Habib hits in the 4 spot, right after me. No complaints on the batting order from me.

May 25 and it's back to Basse-Pointe

My time as an observer with the Diamonds came to a conclusion this evening with the end of the Anse d'Arlet series. Geographically, out biggest rivalry by far, the Diamonds dropped 2 of 3. It's been a rough month as you can see by the graphic.

I'm starting to feel better so I will be joining up with the Bandits tomorrow. I'm hoping I can get back in the line up in about a week or so. Alize' was at the game tonight so we got to spend some time together in the tiny press box just to the left of home plate. Great vantage point to watch a game.

Herve will post a report tonight on the Waveriders so you won't want to miss that. Well, so long from Le Diamant!

Note: To be clear the pic is of Anse d'Arlet. The park is out of the photo, but this is one of my favorite views looking down at their famous beach. Alize' saw a barracuda when she went for a swim, yesterday.

Can you say first place?

Herve here....Waveriders have taken over the top spot in the AAA Central (all Martinique teams). How are we doing it? With our bats. We lead the league in batting average and runs scored (that's all of AAA, not just the Martinique conference).

Vial's hitting streak was brought to a halt by the Purple Aces, at 42 games. No surprise that Habib was batter of the month for April.

My batting average has dipped below .300 (.299). But, no errors since I last wrote. Even my ZR is now in + territory. Zone Rating is one of those new statistics that we've been employing in the Le Diamant system this year. In a nutshell, it compares you against the performance of an 'average player'. Whatever that is.

Here are the batting leaders for the Waveriders. Habib is right there.

I'm not sure if Julien will want any more reports from me but I told him I can do it, as time allows. But, I told him, once we get to the playoffs (we will) I won't have time. Au Revoir!

Basse Pointe update and my return

While Le Diamant struggles continue (1-9) and in last place, our Bandits are just reverse. To the surprise of many, but not our manager, we are in first place.
This evening I will be the starting pitcher. The plan is to keep me between 80-90 pitches. I'm nervous. Wish me luck!

18th Birthday Celebration

Alize' and her parents took me out for dinner for my 18th birthday last week. I celebrated with my first (legal) drink in a tavern on the beach in Le Diamant. Alize snagged a pic of my brew, a Lorraine beer brewed on the island. For dinner I had the conch and my dessert is pictured below...a wonderful chocolate mousse with a cappucino.

Julien Henri first game back from injury

All I can say is, we won! It's one of the greatest feelings I've ever had in a Bandit uniform. To be part of this game tonight. It makes me really appreciate that I get the opportunity to play professional baseball. Pinch me.

Note for you stat lovers:
Faure got his first save,
LeRoux his first hold, and
I got my first W of the season.

Local Coverage

Alize' snagged the local paper for me as sort of memento of my first start and win as a starting pitcher (I earned a W in relief last season). I thought I'd share with everyone.

June 2 Game

Another good game for the Bandits against a very good Lynx squad. Very close all the way. 'Sanchy' gave us 7 very solid innings and Lund went 2 innings to earn the save. A pair of doubles plated our runs.

Taking one for the Team

I guess that's the phrase we use around here when the skipper leaves you in the game way past your normal pitch count. I don't get the logic of throwing 135 pitches coming off an injury but the trainer feels confident that I am sufficiently healed. Not a good day at the park, no matter how you spin it. The Bandits 6 game win streak comes to a brutal end as I give up 7 runs in 7 innings. One for one at the plate with a walk was the one silver lining.
Here are the ugly details:

Scout Report for Position Players for the Draft

Here is the clear leading contender for a position player. He's got a good last name, but, that's looking way too far ahead.

Newest Bandit? The Legend

We have a new catcher and he looks like a great pick. Ambares-et-LaGrave, a small town in Western France close to the sea, is his place of birth. He joins the Bandits in Basse-Pointe as we prepare to take on the St.Anne's Clippers. With the new draftees coming to the club roster moves will be made. Tension and excitement is high throughout the organization as we wait for the domino's to fall.

Hello and....Good-bye

What the fans don't see because it often doesn't make the headlines. Sure, the draftees receive the press and all of the excitement that goes with the new additions. If you are a player cut from your team, it is devastating. Dreams you've had as a kid? This is the reminder that they don't all come true. Some will try and pick up with another club (doubtful), while others will go to school or get a job back home. Even the players that survived the cut, feel the impact of the empty locker next to ours, soon to be filled with a fresh face who can't imagine ever being one that is cut from the team. Even Olivier, they are paying him to not play as he had a contract.

But, we all move on. We know it's a business and we are expected to act accordingly. We'll get the promotions within the next 12 hours I'm told. Pro Ball.....it's a roller coaster.

New Basse Pointe Rotation & Line Up

With the cuts, and promotions, here are the new line ups. Our staff ace, Luis Sanchez, got promoted all the way to AAA. He skipped AA completely. It looks like they have slotted me into the number 1 spot in the Bandit rotation. You can bet I am feeling great about that vote of confidence. I'll be out to prove our coaches and manager right.
