Week 12 schedule

MyWieterGetzLongoria vs. What the Hellickson?
Angry Saguaro vs. Waffles
Smell the Glove vs. CGS
Socrates Burritos vs. Mizzoula Osprey
Trail-Hitters vs. Alabama Slammers
Dirk Ziegler vs. Yasmany as Possible

An easy pick for this week's ESPN televised contest, as first-place faced second, the Trail-Hitters taking on the Slammers. Trail have had a serene and almost undisturbed progress so far, a 3-6 loss in week 9 to Socrates their only defeat so far. But Alabama have been on a roll over late, winning their last three games by four points or more, with an overall margin of 23-7, so should present Trail with their toughest test yet.
