Pitcher List Staff League Review: Week 18

There was a 10-0 sweep, a battle of first and second place teams, and one league wrapped up their regular season!

Let’s get into this week’s best performances and closest matchups. Feel free to take a closer look at our rosters, transactions, and matchups by following these links: Legacy LeagueProdigy LeagueFutures League. Likewise, if you’d like to read the previous weeks’ reviews, follow this link.

Legacy League

Best Performance: Mookie and the Betts (Ben Palmer)

It’s a rare thing in fantasy sports- the clean sweep. Ben shut out Ian Post, taking all ten categories this past week. With the win, Ben moves into a four-way tie for 3rd place with myself, Ian Post, and Rick Graham, while our fearless leader, Nick Pollack, sits only a half game back, in 7th. Shoutout to Alex Fast and Kyle Bishop, who both walked away with 9-1 victories.

Closest Matchup: The Bear and the Maiden Faria (Nick Pollack) vs. Gray Market Price (Stephen Honovich)

One run. That’s all that kept Nick from forcing a tie and entering into a five-way tie for 3rd place. But alas, he came up just short. In fact, Nick is lucky it was this close, as he got a lucky W from Wade Davis to force a tie in Wins.

Prodigy League

Best Performance: DFSers Anonymous (Troy Klauder)

Troy finished the season on an incredibly high note, with an 8-2 victory over Jake Bridges. However, it was not enough to get Troy into the playoffs. The Prodigy League is weird and went with an 18-week regular season and 3 2-week playoff matchups. Troy got big weeks from Ronald Acuna, Jesus Aguilar, Blake Snell, and Zack Wheeler in the W.

Closest Matchup: Syndergaarden Cop (Jonathan Metzelaar) vs. The Gregorius D.I.D.i (Jeff Davis)

This was not the closest matchup this past week, as there were two 5-4-1 matchups, but this was the closest in that the 6-4 victory sealed the 6th seed for Jon in the playoffs. Had he lost, he would’ve gone into a tiebreaker with Troy Klauder (one he would’ve won). Nonetheless, congrats to Jon for holding on to the playoff spot.

Below you’ll see the final regular season standings and stats from the prodigy league, from here on out, you’ll get box scores from the Winner’s Bracket.

Remember, the top 2 finishers in this league join the Legacy League next season.

Futures League

Best Performance: Lindor Truffles (Rob Zaccheo)

Although this was, in fact, a 5-4-1 matchup, Rob had the most dominant performance in the league, posting a league best 14 HRs, 43 RBI, 1.99 ERA, and 0.89 WHIP. Damn. Shoutout to Austin Perodeau for his 7-2-1 victory with a 1.43 ERA as well.

Closest Matchup: House Acree (Tim Acree) vs Team Gorman (Brennan Gorman)

It was a no-brainer this week, as Tim and Brennan were locked in a dead heat that ended 4-4-2. The two were separated by 1 RBI and tied in W and SV. Elsewhere around the league, second place Team Wexler knocked off top ranked Hans Molemen to close the gap to 1 game out of first.
