Bob of Loss Mitigation Named Week 3 Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week

25 May

After a dominant and record-setting week at the plate, Bob of Loss Mitigation was named Wiffler of the Week for the eleventh time in his EWL career.

After a record-setting week that included a historic performance that tied the single-game home run record (5) and broke the single-game total bases record (28), Bob of Loss Mitigation was voted the Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for week 3 of the 2018 EWL season.

Bob went 14-for-21 on the week with a single, four doubles, three triples, six home runs, an incredible twelve runs scored and thirteen runs batted in. His bat was unstoppable as Loss Mitigation pounded Cheap Goats and also defeated Shady Characters in a dramatic, come-from-behind win. After a relatively pedestrian start to the season, by his standards, Bob’s bat took off as many have come to expect from the four time EWL Wiffler of the Year, and he carried his team to two big victories that propelled them to first place in the EWL standings.

This is the 11th time Bob has earned Wiffler of the Week honors, and the first time since week 6 of the 2017 season. Loss Mitigation has now earned all three Wiffler of the Week awards for the 2018 season so far, after Bob’s teammate, Mike, was named Wiffler of the Week for weeks 1 and 2. This is the first time since 2012, and only the third time ever, that players from the same team have been named Wiffler of the Week more than two consecutive weeks. Ivan (twice) and Vassallo of the Fish Sticks won Wiffler of the Week in three consecutive weeks in 2012, and Ron, Morrison, Frosty, and Les (twice) of the Caucasians won Wiffler of the Week in five consecutive weeks, also in 2012.

Mike of Loss Mitigation Doubles Up: Wins PBR Wiffler of the Week for Second Consecutive Week

Mike, seen here eating a bag of Doritos, was named Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for the second consecutive week.

Mike of Loss Mitigation became the third player in league history to be named Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for both of the first two weeks of the regular season. He joins Guthrie, who was named Wiffler of the Week for week 1 and week 2 in 2016, and Bob, who accomplished the feat in 2014.

Mike led Loss Mitigation to two wins in week 2, going 8-for-11 with with two triples and an incredible six homers, maintaining his place atop the EWL League Leaders. His bat was nearly unstoppable as he crushed opposing pitchers inning after inning. He also continued to dominate defensively, coming through with big plays in the field, recording critical putouts for Loss Mitigation.

This is Mike’s ninth PBR Wiffler of the Week Award. He was named Wiffer of the Week in weeks two and three of the 2013 season, the only time he has previously won in consecutive weeks.

Mike of Loss Mitigation Named Week 1 Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week

9 May

Players and fans voted Mike of Loss Mitigation the week 1 PBR Wiffler of the Week.

After winning the 2017 batting title, finishing runner-up in regular season MVP voting, winning the Wiffle Series, and being named Wiffle Series MVP, Mike started the 2018 season on fire. He went 8-for-10 and turned in the finest offensive performance of week 1. He had five extra-base hits, including three homers, and sat atop the League Leaders for most offensive categories. He also provided elite level defense for Loss Mitigation, as has come to be expected from the perennial Field Master. It looks as if Mike is already on his way to another MVP-caliber season in 2018. This is the 8th time he has earned Wiffler of the Week honors in his career. Mike was named PBR Wiffler of the Week twice in 2017, once in 2015, and four times in 2013.

Guthrie became the first player since Bob (Questionable Outfit) in 2014 to start a wiffle season by winning PBR Wiffler of the Week for both of the first two weeks of the season.

Guthrie of Cookies & Cream was unanimously voted the Pabst Blue Ribbon Wiffler of the Week for week 1 of the 2016 EWL season. Guthrie was electric at the plate, going 9-for-10 with 6 extra-base hits, including 3 doubles and 3 homers. He scored 7 runs and had 5 RBI, two of which were the game-winning RBI for his team’s two wins. He also pitched a complete game win in the season opener, defeating the Ham Slams while allowing only 2 runs on 7 hits in 6 innings pitched. Guthrie reached base safely in his first 9 at-bats of the season before finally being retired for the first time in his 10th at-bat.

Guthrie was named PBR Wiffler of the Week in back-to-back playoff weeks in 2013 en route to leading his team to the 2013 Wiffle Series title and being named Wiffle Series MVP. He won Wiffler of the Week in week 3 of the 2012 season, and took home the award again in the final playoff week of 2012 when he also led his team to the Wiffle Series title and won Wiffle Series MVP. In 2011, he won Wiffler of the Week in week 9 and again in the first round of the Wiffle Playoffs.

In total this is the seventh time Guthrie has been named PBR Wiffler of the Week.
