PYW’s 2021: Championship Round

It’s all come down to this...

The Diamondbacks’ season is coming to an end, which means we have come to our championship round. Before we can do that, however, we must first choose our second half finalist! Last week, I asked you to tell me what the Diamondbacks are going to do with all their extra free time this off season. In first place, with just about the perfect response, we find Justin27!

TL will be at the ballpark staring at the World Series banner, drinking beer after beer for hours (6 recs)

In second place, we find FatElvis04, who thinks they might just need to get back to basics...

Reading, specifically reading “Baseball for Dummies” (5 recs)

And rounding out our final podium in perhaps the most fitting way possible, another top three finish from Jack!

Studying for their Realtors License Exam (4 recs)

And now to find out who will be facing off against Jack in the final round... Drumroll please!!!

With his third place finish, Jack secures the top spot for both halves of the season with a stunning 70 recs between the two halves. Unprecedented. However, it would be no fun if Jack faced off against himself in the playoffs, so congratulations to FatElvis04 as our second half finalist! He did not compete in the first half, but came out strong in the second half to earn a spot in the championship!

So, if you don’t remember, here’s what happens now. Below, you will find, in chronological order, the top three rec’d posts from each finalist in their half of the season. Puruse through them and then vote in the poll for who you believe should be the PYW21 Champion! Very important, only votes in the poll will count. While you are more than welcome to cheer on your choice, debate, or just generally chat in the comments, votes there will not be counted. Please no stuffing the ballot box, and you will be expected to turn over your routers for auditing after the voting is complete. I should probably delete that, shouldn’t I? Oh well.

Anyway, now for Jack Sommers’ entries!
