So far, it seems like the United Rotisserie League is going to be a two-horse race. And those horses are going head-to-head here in Week 8, creating the environment for some solid baseball and a new overall leader.
The Texas Outlaws and Wendy’s Peffercorns have done battle at the top of the standings for a long time, usually winding up tied at the end of each week. This week, they do battle in Florida as Wendy’s hosts the match between the two dominant URL teams.
“Dominant” is an understatement, as these teams sit at 72-26, a whopping 19 games ahead of the third place Brewville Style. Without a major surge by some team, these two will be contending for the overall crown all year long. Texas right now has the edge in the season series, winning 9-5 at home in Week 1. However, Peffercorn owner Mike Salony thinks this time is going to be different.
“The Outlaws have put together a heck of a team,” Salony said in a press conference on Sunday, “but the Peffercorns have been tweaking as well. Couple that with the home field advantage and our devoted fans and I feel confident we’ll be on top come Sunday night.”
Texas owner Robert Arnwine released a statement congratulating the Peffercorns on their early-season success and expressing anticipation for this week’s matchup.
“I’m ready to knock y’all off this first-place perch. You are taking up too much room!” the statement read.
