Folks, this is it! The final edition of PYW’s 2020! Frankly, I didn’t think we make it this far, so kudos to MLB for actually pulling it off. By the end of this post, you’ll have your chance to vote for the 2020 Pit Your Wits Champion, but first, we need to finalize the standings. To do that, we need to find out who suggested the best ideas for determining the order of next years draft picks. In first place, with something of a clapback at Torey Lovullo, we have Hacks with 7 recs!

Team with worst Gameplans picks first

In second place, we a suggestion that honestly probably would work better than almost anything that could actually come out of MLB headquarters, we have Preston with six recs!

Just let Zack Greinke determine the draft order far more intelligent than the commissioner.

And rounding out our final podium of the season, we have Tyler Olson and his five recs. Definitely not ulterior motive here folks!

Simply do it in alphabetical order! By team location name, of course… and thank you, Angels, for dropping the “Anaheim”

Let’s update the standings one more time and see who made the cut for the final three, shall we?

Introducing.......D-Poop In order to truly represent the team on the field, and the 2020 baseball season in general, the team has decided to go with the iconic and highly appropriate D-Poop for the balance of the season. Enjoy his antics as he runs out on the field and poops at home plate, the pitchers mound and all around the field, hilariously mimicking the players and coaches.
