Claymores Flashback: Aug. 6-12

Although Scotland put together another winning week (4-2), it actually lost half a game to Havana and San Juan, both of which went 5-2.

This division is a killer.

In fact, top to bottom, the Trans Atlantic is the toughest division in the PEBA. Yes, even tougher than the Rising Sun. The Trans Atlantic’s overall winning percentage is .548, while the Rising Sun’s is .541.

Yes, those top three teams in the R.S. are all tough as nails (Neo Tokyo 76-43; Shin Seiki 69-48; Okinawa 64-53), but poor Toyama is suffering through a dismal (47-73) season.

The T.A. has no easy outs, though. London, the last place team, is just 4 games under .500, and has been scorching hot of late. Amsterdam has been flirting with .500 all season, and currently is 58-61. Havana and San Juan? Tough, tough, tough.

So there can be no coasting if the Claymores want to make the postseason – every win will be crucial and every loss costly.

Don't touch that dial!

Top Hitter

Naomi Honma, SS: .333/.407/.667, 8 H, 2 2Bs, 2 HRs, 7 RBIs, 3 SB, 1.074 OPS

News and Notes

Despite the Front Office hand wringing, Vegas doesn’t appear to have many doubts about whether Scotland will be a playoff team in 2029. The odds makers currently put the Claymores’ chances at 99.9 percent: 20.3 percent to wrest the division away from Havana, and 79.6 percent to take a wild card spot. They peg the Leones’ odds for the post season at 100 percent, and San Juan’s at 89.7 percent … OF José Guillén has come off the Injured List and is rehabbing his strained hamstring at AAA Aberdeen. The rehab stint is expected to last about 20 days … SP Roger Keller has 6 more days on the IL for his hamstring issue, and then will head to Aberdeen for rehab, as well. He could return around mid-September, if all goes well.
