First off, no Tout Wars teams won Doubt Wars this year. (You’ll recall that Doubt Wars is the league in which players draft team using TW draft prices + $1 in the preseason, and then see how those teams measure up to real Tout War teams. You can see the stats here.
And here are the standings.

See you next year for another season of Doubt Wars!
Only one team, The Good Doctor in the Mixed League, was able to beat the Tout Champ this year. The Good Doctor did it with a pitching staff that included Trevor Bauer, Gerrit Cole, Patrick Corbin, Justin Verlander, Blake Snell, Charlie Morton, Blake Treinen, Brad Boxberger, and Sean Doolittle. Wow!
The Good Doctor is Robert Mirshak, and he edged Tout Champ Tim Heaney’s team, which finished second.
In Doubt NL the top three teams beat the top civilian, Splinters. Steve Gardner, Tristan Cockcroft and Grey Albright repeating their order of finish, with the Splinters just behind Albright. The Splinters is Warner Lewis.
Rick Wolf and Glenn Colton, Tout AL champs, trounced the AJ Puks, who finished second with the top civilian score. The AJ Puks were played by Mark Fass.
Robert Mirshak, Warner Lewis and Mark Fass will be receiving a collection of baseball annuals and online memberships this winter to help their preparation for 2019. But that isn’t why we play, is it?
Congratulations to all the winners.
Rankings needed to be made.
And finally, a blog post written. All done? We now have final results for Doubt Wars 2017.
For those who don’t know, Doubt Wars is the game in which contestants choose their own fantasy teams based on the prices paid in the Tout Wars Auctions, before the season starts. For the price a player went for, plus $1, teams roster 23 player squads with a $260 budget and compete all season long in the 10 Tout Wars categories (5×5 with OBP instead of BA) using the same rosters. There are no substitutions.
When it comes to collating, the multiple leagues are joined and compared to the draft day results of the actual Tout Wars teams. For the first time this year, all three Doubt Wars leagues were won by Tout Wars owners, not surprising in a year in which Tout Wars winning owners set records for most points and biggest margin of victory.
The winners are:
Doubt Wars NL:
Doubt Wars AL
Doubt Wars Mixed
You can see the entire results here.
Thanks to onRoto for supporting Doubt Wars.
Ten Doubt Wars leagues set today, which will at the end of the season be combined into one Mixed, one NL and on AL contest.
Despite a record number of signups, the shortened time to complete rosters and a process that we probably should have explained better for newcomers, the overall number of teams is similar to last year’s contest.
Doubt Wars teams can check their standings all season long. Look for a public announcement of the winners at the end of the season.
