We Have Winners! Vlad Sedler Holds on to Win Tout Wars Draft and Hold!

Looking at the draft day standings coming out of last winter’s slow draft, Vlad Sedler and Brad Johnson looked like the league’s best. At midseason Sedler had opened up a sizeable lead, but Johnson chippped away in the second half causing Vlad agita, and he ultimately held on for victory. It is Sedler’s second Tout championship. The previous was in 2017 in the Head-to-Head league.

We Have Winners! Matt Truss is the Tout Wars Draft (12) Champion!

At the All Star Break, Tout Wars newbie Matt Truss held a slim lead over Jeff Boggis and Sara Sanchez, but he turned on the jets in the second half and won with a healthy lead over Sanchez.

We Have Winners! Frank Stampfl Wins Tout Wars Head to Head Again!

Make it two years in a row. Frank Stampfl, the H2H champ in 2021, caught up to Greg Jewett at the wire to win the H2H finals this year. He will no doubt choose to play with the CBS Sports scoring system again in 2023.

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!
