So we are here now. This is a statement that is true at any time or place that you say it, but we are here. 25 challenges later and we are ready to crown a Pit Your Wits champion for 2012. It's been a remarkable journey, we've laughed, we've cried, we've found the ratio between laughing and crying to be fluctuating.

Last week, we used piratedan7's challenge of plotting out a fangraph. Now, these are pretty long entries and you just want to see who won the whole thing, so here is a link to it and feel free to browse through it.

In honor of wailord, who began this feature last year, I will use his nicer looking medals for the awards for this challenge.


Gold goes to piratedan7. It's like he thought up the challenge himself. Blimey.


Silver is a joint venture between blank_38 and imstillhungry95


Bronze goes to Rockkstarr12.

So there is a clear winner of this challenge and a clear winner of the competition. The competition was very close. It was decided by one point between three people. In fact, one rec on this past challenge was the difference between who won and who didn't.

I am going to use an unnecessary paragraph break to tease this.

Your 2012 Pit Your Wits champion is...

A person...

Who is...


Yes! Our other resident young'un who needs to get off my lawn back in my day dagnabbit is your 2012 Champion! ISH made a remarkable surge in the second half of the season, scoring 35 points after the All Star Break. I was gonna test for Rec Enhancing Drugs, but all I could use to ship them was FedEx. Irony of ironies!

Here are the final standings!

And now a personal award that I give out in a subjective and capricious manner:

Clefo's Choice: Best PYW Entry of 2012

This is awarded to soco's entry in Week 10, which probably was the most effort put into any entry this season and, in my opinion, totally worth it.
