After 55 games or so our fantasy baseball seasons are just getting started. A front-runner or three has emerged, but there is still plenty of time for a slow starter to catch up. Still, big jumps in the standings points tend to come less frequently and the game’s long season exerts its muscular force.
Not this year. With five days left to the regular season, and the possibility of a Monday doubleheader between the Cardinals and Tigers, let’s see who is leading in each of the leagues.
TOUT DAILY: We already have a winner: Mike Gianella.
TOUT WARS DRAFT AND HOLD: Brad Johnson has a 7.5 point lead over Michael Florio, with Michael Stein and Craig Mish just behind him.
TOUT WARS HEAD TO HEAD: Ian Kahn, last year’s champ, is just ahead of Andrea LaMont and Ariel Cohen. But Ian is off to a slow start this week.
TOUT WARS MIXED AUCTION: 2014 champ Derek VanRiper leads 2017 champ Jeff Zimmerman by 10.5 points.
TOUT WARS MIXED DRAFT: Scott White, who tied with Tim Mcleod last year, is trying to hold off 2014 champion McLeod, leading today by 2.5 points. Perennial contenders Rudy Gamble and Adam Ronis are in a knot with Tom Kessenich and Perry Van Hook 10-15 points back.
TOUT WARS AL: 2015 champ Chris Liss has run away with it and is 16 points ahead of Glenn Colton/Rick Wolf’s team.
TOUT WARS NL: Two-time champ (2011, 2018) Steve Gardner has an 8 point lead over league newcomer but three-time mixed auction champ Fred Zinkie.
We’ll announce the Tout Wars winners as they clinch.
