Michel Beller from SI.com is the 2018 Tout Daily Champion, winning the Survivor Tournament Championship by a slim 4.05 points. Todd Zola (pretend I’m not writing this) came in second followed by Clay Link and Bret Sayre.
This season, Tout Daily used a 3-day tournament to crown it’s champion, with the cumulative score determining the winner. Beller had just under a 10-point lead over Link and Zola heading into the final night, needing almost every bit of it to grab the title and have a menu item named in his honor at the annual Tout Wars party at Foley’s in New York City.
Leading Beller’s team was Carlos Carrasco and his 7.2 innings of scoreless ball, fanning 11 Twins, allowing only four hits. As strong as that performance was, it took a late, meaningless, insignificant and downright stat-padding, selfish homer from Nelson Cruz to push Beller ahead of Zola (again, pretend I’m not writing this).
Congratulations to Michael, Tout Wars is anxiously awaiting your selection for the party at Foley’s.
Stay tuned as we’ll be announcing details for the football version of Tout Daily soon.
