Who Is Winning Tout Wars Draft and Hold?

The new Tout Draft and Hold league is going strong, and Mike Sheets has a small lead over Matt Modica. We’re still working toward getting a public link for the lead, but for now this most recent standings will have to suffice.

Goodbye Good Friend, Lawr Michaels

Lawr Michaels was a member of the board of Tout Wars since, like, there was a board. He has been a tireless advocate of the fantasy baseball community for a really long time. How long? He started by writing for John Benson.

He passed away today after a recent bout with illness. He died way too young.

In 2009 he won Tout Wars AL (because, if I recall correctly, his team hit an improbable eight homers on the last day), which gave him first nomination. He did something novel with it.
