MLB SEASON COUNTER 59.1%

Major League Baseball has now completed 59% of the season through Sunday July 24th. In our tour around the Main Event league standings, we’re examining the fantasy teams in the top seven places of the third group of 8 out of the 47 Main Event leagues. It’s time to be real about where each fantasy owner is in the standings. If you’re being totally honest, then, well

LEAGUE UPDATES

Over the next few weeks, we will catch up with the 47 Main Event leagues on an individual basis. You’ll see the fantasy managers in the top 7 positions, along with their point total (AS OF SATURDAY MORNING), the change from two weeks ago (ACTUALLY A LITTLE LESS THAN TWO WEEKS AGO AFTER THE SUNDAY STATS WERE COMPLETED) and the overall place. Also, I have brought back the “Win Estimate” – where I show the chances of finishing first for each team in the particular league. Remember, I can’t tell anyone how this is calculated, but I can tell you that it uses the same general principles as Philippe Dussault’s preseason player ranking. In fact, just as a warning, this is what happened when someone asked me to explain how these percentages actually work:

 

 

1: The Endless Sommer

 

Charles Sommer has a solid lead in Main Event #1228, but it’s not quite as comfortable as it used to be. He’s up by 6.5 points now, and Mike Ballschmiede has gained 10 points over the past two weeks to close the gap. John Pausma is also 7 points back and no lead is safe with him around. All three are in the top 40 overall positions, so we’re anticipating a close three-team race. It seems like Jason Shook in 4th; Peter Christenson in 5th; Jordan Epping in 6th and Alan Mitchell in 7th have too much ground to make up, but stranger things have happened. Shook, for his part, gained 9 points over the past two weeks so perhaps he is making his move.

6th Jordan Epping 86.0 +1.0 262 2%
7th Alan Mitchell 84.5 -2.5 358 2%

2: Ned Instead

 

OK, Ned Donohue is leading this league, but his team is only 30th overall. How unimpressive is that? He HAS gained 7 points over the past two weeks to increase his lead, but I am not convinced that this league is salted away. Stephen Jupinka is a cagey veteran with lots of tricks up his sleeve, and Scott Fleming is a solid competitor. Not to be outdone, we have Jon the Stat Man Stadtmueller looming in 4th. All three of these guys are capable of winning this one. A little further back we find Eric Gailing, Gregg Martin, and Joe Anthony, who are not completely out of the race. Anthony in particular has gained 8.5 points over the past two weeks to pull closer. I’m calling this league undecided for now even with Donohue’s current edge.

3: O’Brien’s Doing Fi-en

 

Michael O’Brien is feeling good as you see above – he is leading this Main Event league, even though it is very close over Daniel Prepas (0.5 points as of Saturday), nothing seems to bother Michael. Over the last two weeks he has gained 3 points and is 40th overall. Daniel, though, is highly determined, and it looks right now that these two will battle over the season’s final two months for the title. However, I’m expecting that out of the teams in 3rd through 7th one will make a charge. We have Clark Olson, who just never gives up; Bradley Libros, who I know is planning a comeback; Russell Withers, who says he knows the path to glory; Joe McHugh, who has been calling friends and neighbors for input; and Lenny DiVeglio, who has gained 6.5 points over the past two weeks. All five of these teams are within two points of each other, and mark my words at least one is going to move up towards the leaders (I always wanted to use the phrase “mark my words”!).

4: O’Brien’s Second Ti-Em

This is not a mistake. Michael O’Brien leads this league also. And look at the points gained – 23.5 over the past two weeks! Wow! He now has a 7-point lead over the second place team, captained by all-star Douglas Gruber. Gruber lost 8 points over the same time period, but seems unfazed by the development. He’s an NFBC veteran that doesn’t scare easily, and the same can be said about the teams in 3rd (Jordan Epping) and 4th (Andrew Geller). They’re just waiting for O’Brien to cool off and figuring that they can slide back up to the top. Scott Zeidman, Kent Stermon and MAYBE Kyle Brinkmann are still alive in this as well, but all of this depends on O’Brien. Will he come back to the pack? Stay tuned to find out…

5: Jeff is Deft

 

Jeff Erickson is now in first place in this league, after Kelly Uganski has hit a little bit of a rough patch over the past two weeks (losing 4.5 points). But Erickson has no time to smell the roses, as he has his eyes on a bigger prize, the NFBC overall – he was in 21st as of Saturday and now is up to 20th as of Monday morning – nice work! Unfortunately for Jeff, he WILL have to deal not only with Uganski but – there’s that man again – John Pausma. John is just chilling in 3rd place and doesn’t seem at all flustered by his place. I’d bet that one of these three will win, but I’d be remiss to move on without mentioning the always-dangerous Douglas Roth in 4th, and the never-say-die trio of Vince Clemente, Jason Aberli and Kyle Pantalone in 5th, 6th and 7th. While there’s a big hill to climb, I don’t expect any reduction of effort and it could pay off big time.

6: A Case of Brinkmanship

 

Kyle Brinkmann has a solid lead in Main Event #1263, and as of Saturday was sitting pretty at 9th overall. You’d think that he’d be a lock to win this league, but Chris Uram has other plans. He has gained 10 points over the past two weeks and is 25th overall himself – and is just 5.5 points out of first now. Not to be outdone, Eric Heberlig has ALSO gained 10 points and although he is 12.5 points back I don’t count him out at all. Michael Brophy has had a little less luck lately, but is still in the hunt 14 points out of first. I do think those four have the best chance to emerge victorious, but Konstantin K, Usman Ahmad, and Robert Cramutola show no signs of quitting. This will be a fascinating league over August and September.

7: Department Store Domination

 

Bill Macey likes department stores. And apparently in addition to Thanksgiving Day parades, Bill knows how to play fantasy baseball. He has a rather commanding 11.5-point lead in the Main Event #1264, and was 10th overall as of Saturday. But you know, this might not be over yet. Vlad Sedler, aka Rotogut, is in second place and 45th overall, and is extremely dedicated to his craft. And I’m not eliminating Chris Liss either. He’s got a home base in Portugal and is apparently using that location to scout for new prospects in the Lisbon league. Rotowire Closer Expert Ryan Rufe is a fan favorite, but he has a little work to do to challenge for the top. Brian Edwards in 5th was doing better but has fallen back 12.5 points with a recent slump. And I don’t think former champ Abdulaziz Madani or Trusty Rusty Clark has thrown in the towel either. For all intents and purposes I’d say one of the top three is winning this league, but I’ve learned not to close the book too soon.

8: Amaz-ur-ing Grace

Bob Mazur has a good solid cushion in Main Event #1265, and has gained surged 4 points over two weeks to make it a little more comfortable. He was at #20 overall as of Saturday, but can’t get too excited as Tyler (Welcome to the Jungle) Jung is shadowing him just 8.5 points back. Also in the hunt are Aaron Jones (who plays for the Packers in his spare time) and Joe Morrison – who rumor has it is related to the late Jim Morrison of The Doors. Ray Murphy is also in solid position, after making a 4-point move to reach 5th place. Scott Kotchek and Bradley Beckman are mired in 6th and 7th and need some new ideas in order to vault back up the standings.

Germane to the Conversation

Domingo German, who is back for the Yankees, was the widest pickup on July 24th. Those who added him are hoping for solid pitching and a few wins with the backing of the Yankee offense. German was added in 39 leagues for as high as $68 and as low as $1.

In addition, 9 other players were picked up in 18 or more leagues (see below). Other wide pickups were Nick Pratto – hotshot Royals rookie; J.J. Bleday – hotshot Marlins outfielder; Ezequiel Duran – young Texas infielder who has been recalled; and A.J. Puk – who could work his way into the Oakland closing mix.

The Wow Bid of the Week

One of our highlighted features – the Main Event Wow Bid of the Week – goes to the largest bid of each FAAB period. This week that honor goes to a $142 bid for pitcher Jesus Luzardo – as he attracted the highest bid. In the league he was won with the $142 bid, it outdistanced the $100 runner-up amount. Interestingly – those two bids were the only two even entered in the Main Event this week that were at $100 or more – winning or losing. How times have changed!

The Century Club Has 1 Lonely Member This Week

Luzardo was the only player that attracted a SUCCESSFUL bid over $100 during this FAAB run (down from 7 last week), and there were no bids over $200. I fear this Century Club may be shutting down for the season.

Average Main Event Team FAAB Remaining: $203

For the 17 FAAB runs thus far, the average Main Event team has won 32.1 bids this season (down very slightly at 1.89 per week) and spent $797.47 per team. This dollar amount is a little ahead of last season’s pace (now by 2.2%) when $779.96 was spent per team in the same time frame. This means that in 2022, the average team has $203 of FAAB left, but it’s worthwhile to remember that approximately $57 per team went unspent last year as fantasy owners fell out of the running. Therefore, the active FAAB dollars left could be around $140 or so.

Colosseum Stats: Four Players from Three Weeks Ago…Results: 1 Good Add out of 4:

Again this season we’ll be keeping tabs on the 4 most added players from 3 weeks ago to see how some of the biggest free agent acquisitions have been doing for their fantasy owners. These are the players acquired in the most leagues on the 14th FAAB run this season – on 7/3 (stats are from 7/4 through 7/24):

  • Vinnie Pasquantino: 15-for-69 .217 AVG; 2 HR; 0 SB – Pasquantino’s average is underwhelming; his two homers combined with mediocre counting stats (6 runs scored and 4 RBI) are not enough to earn him the win. He seems to be playing every day so there is hope that he will shake out of this and produce more – for now this gladiator goes down to defeat though.
  • Darick Hall: 14-for-51 .275 AVG; 2 HR; 0 SB – Hall has a better average, and he’s produced 10 runs scored and 5 RBI. If I thought he’d be playing more, I’d consider a win, but he seems to be sitting against LHP and I don’t think he can be counted on going forward – this seems like a PUSH to me.
  • Will Smith (ATL): 5.2 IP; 7.94 ERA; 2.29 WHIP; 8 K; 4 BB; 0 WINS; 1 SAVE – Kenley was out, so this seemed like a good add. But the one save wasn’t worth it – LOSS.
  • J. Minter: 6.1 IP; 1.42 ERA; 1.26 WHIP; 9 K; 1 BB; 0 WINS; 4 SAVES – Kenley was out – and this turned out to be the right choice. Good counting stats and four saves make this gladiator victorious. WIN.

2022 RECORD:

  • 20 thumbs up – 36% (full year 2021 24%)
  • 13 side thumbs – 23% (full year 2021 27%)
  • 23 thumbs down – 41% (full year 2021 49%)

The cumulative record of top adds in the Main Event is still ahead of 2021 through the first 17 FAAB periods. Main Event owners have been averaging more than one good add per week thus far – but the record is slipping back just a little.

 Congratulations to Bob Catsiroumpas for holding the Number One overall position! In addition to being a huge Montana State Bobcats fan; in addition to the fact that Bobcats is the code word for how Bob studies the standings category by category; he now claims he has all the best stats and they are “Bobby Cats.” (Sorry Bob, this just doesn’t work for me.) Anyway, nice work – you’ve got almost a 100-point lead in late July!

Congratulations also to Scott Jenstad, Robert Cramutola, Ben Tidd and Scott Waggener, who still occupy the 2nd through 5th positions overall – but Jenstad has moved into 2nd from last week’s 3rd. Ned Donohue is a threatening presence in 6th; Craig Clarke looks strong in 7th; Stephen Jupinka is coming on in 8th; the operatic duo of Mirshak/Kahn is in 9th and Kyle (on the brink) Brinkmann is in 10th – but all of these Top 20 are doing an outstanding job!!

Philippe Dussault: 98th

I called Philippe with the intention of helping him this week – that’s just the kind of guy I am. So I started out by saying: “Phil, buddy, I hope you realize that you’re just not going to win every overall contest like you did in 2021. Therefore…”

Phil cut me off immediately because he had a very important reaction he wanted to make:

 

 

Where are our 2022 Previous Overall Leaders?

Tim Lilly (4/11): Tim is mired at #379 – and has gone incommunicado…

Scott Fleming (4/18): Scott surged to 42nd and is in contention in two leagues (see below) this week. Scott says he is in contact with the Scottish Government and has spoken to someone named “Angus McGee” at a local pub just last week.

Chris Read (4/25-5/8): Chris is at #57 this week and says his application for work at Reader’s Digest Magazine is going well – they told him they are giving it “serious consideration.”

Tyler Jung (5/15): Tyler is on the way back from his “Welcome to the Jungle” tour in deepest, darkest Africa. He boarded a flight in Maputo in Mozambique and although his plane was re-routed to Reykjavic he says he made the best of it and is taking a ferry to Greenland (he’s in 68th now).
Leonard Ringle (5/22-29): Leonard is in 14th and right in the thick of the race. He says he has finished the new jingle to sing when he regains first overall, but can’t perform this right now because he’s been sued by the Rolling Stones because it has the same tune and lyrics as “Street Fighting Man.”

Bob Cramutola (6/20): Bob is right there in 3rd place overall, and reports that he and his partner Aaron Nola are ready to win this season. They are still working on getting more Phillies on the team, and is asking why on earth Odubel Herrera is not playing more…

Mark Bendar (6/6; 6/20; 6/27): Mark is doing just fine in 12th overall but says he has terminated his movie work with David Beckham. David Beckham, for his part, insists that this is “just a misunderstanding” and has apologized for any transgressions “real or imagined.”

 

League of Legends

In addition, we’ll follow the individual league races this season. It is no small feat to win a league championship in the Main Event regardless of a fantasy owner’s overall place, and the top three in each league earn a cash prize and deserve recognition.
