TEIXEIRA LEADS FARTKNOCKERS’ SURGE INTO FANTASY PLAYOFFS
FITSNews – August 20, 2007 – For the second night in a row, FITS Fartknockers‘ first baseman Mark Teixeira blasted two home runs in a game, giving him nine bombs in just eighteen games since owner Sic Willie engineered a blockbuster trade to acquire him a little over a month ago.
Currently, the Fartknockers are in third place in the Great Santini League standings, making them a virtual lock to reach the playoffs for the second year in a row.
“We’re pleased,” Sic Willie said. “It’s our nature to be pleased. We set out to be a playoff-caliber team and we’ve done that. Now we need to take the next step in the evolution of this franchise.”
Teixeira belted his two three-run homers tonight against the Cincinnati Reds, less than 24 hours after connecting for two homers and four RBI’s against John McCain’s beloved Arizona Diamondbacks.
