Blake Snell swept past Lucas Giolito on Sunday to claim the Players League title. This came after sweeping Gavin Lux in the first round and beating Jeff McNeil two games to one in the semifinals.

He did it behind strong showings from Willy Adames...

Austin Meadows ...

and...Mike Zunino?

The normally aggressive Snell emphasized using patience in the Finals against Gigolito.

And isn’t it nice to talk about real (fake) games for a change?

The preferred plan would be to start play in late June or early July with as many teams as possible playing in home parks, such as the Rays at Tropicana Field, while competing in their regular divisions with an abbreviated schedule of at least 80 games.
