The Gentleman’s Game Has a New Sheriff


The Friday night Gentleman’s Game Cup match was quite an event. Swindaman3 is realizing his lifelong dream, becoming a DFS baseball household name week over week, one lineup led James “White American” McCann at a time. He’s doing things his way – and he didn’t come this far to be pushed around.

You’ll see that Mr. S now has reclaimed full leadership atop the Gentleman’s Game Cup Standings. And if you ask him he will not be relinquishing that lead again in this final month and change we have left to decide our first Gentleman’s Game Cup Champion.

Yearly Standings:
Swindaman3 – 61.5 Points
DStars45 – 60.5 points
t3bird04 – 52 Points
Diamondhoggers – 49 points
Jsquad34 – 48 Points

Swindaman3 acted with brilliance, using not birthday boy Mike Trout (who was used by 60% of the field in this contest) but for using Justin Upton and JD Martinez, who were not used by anyone else. You see, Swindaman3 will swerve you when you think you know his next move best. That’s why he’s on top.

He also went with the cunning move to use Jordan Zimmerman who provided a very quality performance at a smart shopper’s price. James Shields and his 20+ points were just the cherry on the sundae for young Swindaman, who submitted his lineup from the beaches of South Carolina; a location where he’s at his best.

The Gentleman’s Game turd was arguably (or not really that arguably) Jose Fernandez, owner of a shiny new sore shoulder. For all that money, he garnered just 16.25 points against a Braves lineup that doesn’t scare anyone. He was used only by Diamondhoggers who took the bait, and finished fourth.

So… what the Hell will happen when we try again next week? Can Diamondhoggers or JSquad climb from the ranks to make t3bird the meat part of a diamondhoggers/Jsquad sandwich? Will Swindaman3 and DStars continue to jostle for year long excellence as they have since the first sun of spring? Will Swindaman3 field another beach lineup that he is becoming so famous for within the industry? Will Jay Bruce post yet another zero in the beautiful confines of a perfect hitters park against an off-brand starter?

You MUST tune in next week to find out. And you will tune in because you are so caught up in this action, to learn who will be crowned the finest gentleman of them all in Daily Fantasy Baseball.
