The poll on ESPN.com/weasel decided that there would be a DFS league and a “Fun” celebrity league. Which means that there isn’t going to be a traditional man’s league this year with fans. This is where I’m going to step in. I created a 16 team league and it will play exactly like all of the other man’s leagues. I’m not sure what the criteria will be to get in to the league but in the meantime, fill out the form at the bottom of this post to send me your idea.
There will be a user league and it’ll be an all woman’s league. I’m still going ahead with this league and the criteria has been decided.
I’m scrapping the haiku idea since it was lackluster to say the least. Use the form below on why you should be in the league.
Draft Time: Sunday, September 6th @ 4:00PM Eastern
Draft Type: Auction, $200 budget
Format: Head-to-head points

It’s been a minute since the last time I did a Man’s League update. I would’ve had one sooner but work has dominated my time over the last couple of weeks. I went to Microsoft Ignite at the beginning of the month and then the next week spent my time recovering from the tiny, tiny airplane seats (I’m 6’5″) and playing work catch up. Ignite was in Chicago and I had arrived there the Sunday after the NFL Draft finished so I got to see the remnants of Draft Town. The arch to the opening of the area was gigantic! It has to be like 3-4 stories high. Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time to explore Chicago as I would’ve loved to see Wrigley Field. I did manage to snap a picture of Soldier Field since it was close to the conference center.
Enough about me, what’s happened in the Man’s League since the last update?
- There was only one trade: R.A Dickey for Chris Owings.
- Pod Vader got destroyed by Daniel Dopp (2-7-1) and owns one of the worst records in the league.
- Daniel Dopp continued to dominate but ran in to a speed bump last week (lost to EMT Jack 3-7-0).
- The hottest team in the league is Canadian #2 Ryan, who owns a 24-6-0 record this month.
- The East division is still anyone’s for the taking. Greyhound KC has made a run and leads Intern Tom by 1 game. Pod Vader is only 11 games back.
- The West division is by far the toughest division, with the top 3 teams in the league (Canadian #2 Ryan, Swiss Superman Michel and Secret Squirrel).
Sorry about the delay with the week 2 recap. I’ll make more of an effort to get the week 3 recap out on Monday.
- Swedish Canada Niklas defeated The 06010 Board Nick 6-3-1
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE The 06010 Board Nick (8-11-1) 24 6 21 5 .2018 52 4 1 3.323 1.123 3-6-1 Swedish Canada Niklas (11-7-2) 40 13 40 8 .2891 52 1 3 4.709 1.169 6-3-1
Good starting pitching saved Nick from being blown out by Niklas. Niklas is a solid SP away from having a team that’ll compete for the championship. Big weeks from Adam Jones and Paul Goldschmidt powered Niklas’ week with a combined 12 R, 6 HR, 18 RBI, 1 SB, .404 BA.
- Tom The Intern defeated Maple Syrup David 7-2-1
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Tom The Intern (8-10-2) 45 8 37 5 .2708 48 4 1 5.363 1.253 7-2-1 Maple Syrup David (7-12-1) 22 4 19 2 .2404 42 3 1 2.842 1.132 2-7-1
Tom rebounded from his abysmal week 1 performance. His pitching is still coming around but the offense is looking pretty balanced. Steven Souza was Tom’s MVP of the week (5 R, 3 HR, 9 RBI, 3 SB, .379 BA).
- Swiss Superman Michel defeated Greyhound KC 7-1-2
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Greyhound KC (6-12-2) 33 9 33 5 .2234 56 6 3 5.217 1.377 1-7-2 Swiss Superman Michel (15-2-3) 47 12 42 5 .2904 73 6 1 4.500 1.355 7-1-2
Michel had another dominant week and is looking like an early favorite to win the league. His pitching ratios could be better but when you dominate the hitting categories, Wins and Ks, the ratios can suffer.
- BBQ Sauce Joel defeated Canadian #1 Carl 6-4-0
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Canadian #1 Carl (7-13) 30 9 35 5 .2066 46 4 0 4.987 1.701 4-6-0 BBQ Sauce Joel (11-9) 32 5 27 1 .2717 51 2 3 3.224 1.209 6-4-0
These are two fairly matched teams and the results showed this. Joel has some pretty solid pitching but needs to have his power bats come around (Granderson, Gattis, Byrd).
- Secret Squirrel defeated Suckuptosteffie Tom 7-3-0
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Suckuptosteffie Tom (9-11) 34 6 23 7 .2383 15 0 8 4.200 1.733 3-7-0 Secret Squirrel (14-6) 21 5 30 8 .2691 54 3 2 4.032 1.127 7-3-0
The bearded one continued his early season success with another 7-3-0 win. Daniel didn’t have the best week statistically but benefited from Tom’s strategy (all closers) not working out this week.
- Canadian #2 Ryan defeated Fantasy Wizard Tyler 7-3-0
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Canadian #2 Ryan (16-4) 34 8 30 4 .2342 61 6 5 1.456 0.971 7-3-0 Fantasy Wizard Tyler (7-13) 35 6 29 2 .2633 52 3 6 3.279 0.986 3-7-0
Ryan accumulated a great pitching line this week with 6 great combined starts from deGrom, Cole and Greene. Tyler had an unfortunate draw this week and could’ve easily had a winning record if he had played any other team in the league. This was a playoff quality matchup where all the categories were solid and close.
- EMT Jack defeated Shiba Inu Sean 7-3-0
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Shiba Inu Sean (8-12) 25 6 28 5 .2582 50 4 6 4.829 1.293 3-7-0 EMT Jack (8-12) 35 14 48 6 .3125 21 1 0 3.000 0.944 7-3-0
Jack stormed back from a poor week 1 performance and lead the league in BA and HRs. His pitching numbers weren’t that great but he benefited from great performances from his group of middle relievers.
- Combo Meals Ryan defeated Pod Vader 6-4-0
TEAM BATTERS PITCHERS TOTAL NAME R HR RBI SB AVG K W SV ERA WHIP SCORE Combo Meals Ryan (10-9-1) 37 10 49 5 .2676 43 3 5 3.420 1.340 6-4-0 Pod Vader (9-11) 36 6 31 7 .2797 49 6 4 4.190 1.414 4-6-0
Another matchup that was close and could’ve gone the other way if there was another day. Neither team was particularly dominant but their stats were all solid and they should be tough teams to play this year.
- Swiss Superman Michel
- Combo Meals Ryan
- Canadian #2 Ryan
- Secret Squirrel
- Swedish Canada Niklas
- BBQ Sauce Joel
- Pod Vader
- Suckuptosteffie Tom
- Tom The Intern
