4.5 Predictions... My Usual Thoughts on the Fall League
I guess our readers are wanting some more. While the pay for writing this blog is substantial, I still have to supplement it with another job.
I don't have time to do a lot of analysis. But since this is the all important fall league, I will oblige. We all know that the heavy hitters really take this time serious. :) With the cooler weather coming, some of the better players lose their mojo so the fall is about as exciting as Combo and Mixed 40s.
Flight A: My first thought was LB Houston/Moore but there are a lot of new names. Lets see how well they work together. I will take Oak Creek/Herget-Loose. to win with Greenhill Rossouw as runner-up.
Flight B: There are a lot of mediocre or bad teams in this flight. Brookhaven/Harlee should win but Lakes/Way is a contender. The rest should all go abut .500 beating each other in close 3-2s mediocre 4.5 tennis.
Flight C: This is between Greenhill/Rossouw part 2 and Oak Creek/Pribadi. I like Rossouw to win this fight.
At first glance, this crop of 4.5 teams seems down. There could be a non name brand team to emerge. I do have to give the DTA credit in that they appear to evenly and fairly separate the better teams. There is no flight you just scratch your head and say... how could they put that many good teams in one flight. Kudos to them.
