2015 Tout Wars Owners Announced

Earlier this month, the owner lineup for the 2015 Tout Wars was announced. The four experts leagues (AL-only, NL-only and Mixed auctions, as well as the Mixed Draft) is chock full (chocks are huge!) of some of the most respected names in the industry — and then me!

This is my 10th season in Tout Wars — and I’m ready for my second title (2008!) already. Then again, I’m also ready to not come in dead last (2014) again.

I’m very happy to say I’ve worked with 10 of these guys along the way. This industry is full of great guys, and I’ve often said that the good guy-to-douchebag ratio is about 40:1. Try finding that number in any other industry: Telecommunications (12:1), Attorneys (5:1), Firemen (11:1), Pro wrestling (3:1) and people that work at the DMV (1:45).

Scott Engel of joins the Mixed League Auction this season, which is great because he was my mentor, along with’s Tristan Cockcroft, and Engel was the guy that helped me get my foot in the door at in 2003. He’s a good man — even though he has an unhealthy obsession with KISS — the band, not the act.
