There is just one Gentleman’s game remaining this season.
Some things would seem to be decided, with DStars45 holding down things in the top spot even with a tough Friday night. But hold on a second. I am told that the Gentleman’s Game competition committee is discussing a wrinkle in the contest that would allow for point values to be doubled in the final week, or a possible twi-night double header; making much up for grabs. Yes, you heard that right. It is possible the Gentleman’s Cup champion to come down to the final week.
As for this past week’s contest, it was as sluggish as it seemed. With football in play and fall activities to be done in life, you’ll have nights where the Gentleman come out a little bit subpar. We will need to check with the Elias Sports Bureau, but we believe it to be the first Gentleman’s Game in which there was no member to reach 100 total points.
T3Bird04 was the victor last night, pulling out all the stops with home runs from Justin Smoak and Khris Davis, and solid enough performances from Madison Bumgarner and Max Scherzer.
It just wasn’t a night where you needed a lot from your bats as long as you collected two quality starts, and the bird was indeed the word.
Here’s a look at the yearly standings:
DStars45 – 76.5 Points
Swindaman3 – 71.5 points
t3bird04 – 67 Points
Diamondhoggers – 65 points
Jsquad34 – 65 Points
And now a look at the magic potion that T3bird04 used to foil the other gents:
BUT…. what will happen next week? We are not done yet as there is one weekend of baseball remaining. And like true gentleman, we will see this party through until the final light switch has been turned off.
