Tout rookie Mike Gianella writes about his Tout NL team.
Last year’s polls didn’t select any winners. Readers thought ESPN would sweep Tout Wars in 2009, voting for Eric Karabell, Nate Ravitz and Matthew Berry.
Instead, Creativesports.com took two of three leagues (Lawr Michaels and Brian Walton), with Rotowire’s Chris Liss winning the mixed.
UPDATE! This Year’s Winners, the Poll Says:
AL: Matt Berry 37%, Jason Grey 14%, Mike Siano 8%
NL: Nate Ravitz 23%, Tristan Cockcroft 19%, Chris Liss 10%
MIX: Eric Mack 25%, Eric Karabell 22%, Seth Trachtman 12%
Tout Wars is pleased to announce the Society of American Baseball Research’s sponsorship of the SABR Trophy, with a presentation by SABR Board member F.X. Flinn of trophies to the three 2009 Tout Wars champions before Friday’s Tout Wars AL Draft.
Tout Wars and SABR hope this inaugurates a long association of championship-caliber play and an expanding appreciation and understanding of the game of baseball.
