We were joined by a special guest of sorts this week, TStarkey; a friend of mine and renegade DFS player whom I used to work with. He had a nice debut showing in the Gentleman’s Game coming in second with 118+ points. He went with a Blue Jays stack. With any luck, he may be invited back to be a part of this Gentleman’s gathering.
DStars45 was back in the saddle and back from vacation, and he took us to the whipping post. He paired Jose Fernandez with Jonathan Gray along with four hitters in double digits; Jose Abreu (14), Roughned Odor (20), Evan Longoria (25), and Tim Anderson (10), to paddle to safety with 144+ points. We’ll call Longoria – who homered and had four hits – the Gentleman’s Game MVP for the week.
Tomorrow is the First Annual ‘Gentleman’s Game Live Final’ where we still play for our usual prize pool but the Gentleman Gather in person to do battle, spit seeds, and drink Mountain Dew.
This week saw little change in our yearly standings in terms of jockeying for position; but rather just a furthering of distance by the top two competitors and the bottom half of our Gents hourglass filling further.
DStars45 – 56 points
t3bird04 – 51 points
Jsquad34 – 40 points
Diamondhoggers – 40 points
Swindaman3 – 36 points
Here’s a look at the winning lineup, courtest of DStars45:
So what will happen this week? Will Diamondhoggers order enough clouds at the live final to keep JSquad34 happy? Will his meat be grilled to perfection? Will he make sure that he has the comfiest seat? Will the volume be turned to a level of his liking? Will Swindaman3 christen my new home by pooping in one of my new toilets? Will DStars45 have Diet Mountain Dew poured all over him after midnight to celebrate the first Gentleman’s Game live final win? Will I lose my entire bankroll? I really might. Will The Family Man of DFS (t3bird04) be in bed by 9:00? Will Draftkings ever send me my player usage?
