We Have Winners! Derek VanRiper Takes Tout Wars Mixed Auction

Derek VanRiper is now a three-time champion in Tout Wars Mixed Auction, previously winning in 2014 and 2020. He was in second place at the All Star Break, trailing Scott Engel, but broke away from the pack in the second half, benefitting from trades that landed him Shohei Ohtani (pitcher), Gerrit Cole, and Framber Valdez. He traded away Aaron Judge, Paul Goldschmidt, and Alex Bregman!
