Time for an update as we head into the home stretch...

The guesses:

@banjar - Trea Turner (H) -190. 2nd with 168
@thelesquad - Vladimir Guerrero Jr (HR) - 48. 17th (T) with 27
@dano7 - Aaron Judge (HR) - 51. 1st with 55
@Letch77 - Walker Buehler (W) - 21. OUT FOR SEASON? with 6
@Dazed - Bo Bichette (H) - 202. 7th with 151
@WizardofOz1982 - Gerritt Cole (K) - 246. 1st with 204
@MrMet2.0 - Francisco Lindor (RBI) - 112. 8th (T) with 89

The Leaders so far:

H - Freeman (172)
HR - Judge (55) @dano7
RBI - Judge (118)
W - Kyle Wright (17)
K - Cole (204) @WizardofOz1982
S - Jansen(32) - Nobody guessed saves, but we'll still track it

We got 2 guys running neck and neck for the win. I think everyone else is about out at this point other than maybe banjar, but you never know. Turner could go on a tear with Freeman getting cold.

Nothing against dano7 winning again, but it will be extra hard to make a prize package with his strong Yankee interest. I have been trading away my extra Yankee stuff for YEARS with a good buddy of mine. Oh well, if he repeats, I'll come up with something!

Time to award the winner, but I think we knew already!

The guesses:

banjar - Trea Turner (H) -190. 3rd place with 194
thelesquad - Vladimir Guerrero Jr (HR) - 48. 15th place with 32
dano7 - Aaron Judge (HR) - 51. 1st place (and a new AL record) with 62!
Letch77 - Walker Buehler (W)
Dazed - Bo Bichette (H) - 202. 3rd place with 189
WizardofOz1982 - Gerritt Cole (K) - 246. 1st place with 257
MrMet2.0 - Francisco Lindor (RBI) - 112. 5th place with 107

The final MLB Leaders:

H - Freeman (199)
HR - Judge (62) - dano7
RBI - Alonso/Judge (131)
W - K. Wright (21)
K - Cole (257) - WizardofOz1982
S - E. Clase (42)

By virtue of getting his guess in first, @dano7 wins his 2nd consecutive time! Congrats to @WizardofOz1982 for guessing Cole as the MLB strikeout leader, unfortunately you were just a day late. Thank you everyone for playing and excellent guesses. Many of you came quite close to actual totals and 4 guesses within the top 3! @banjar @thelesquad @Letch77 @Dazed @MrMet2.0

@dano7 , please PM me your address and I will start putting together the grand prize package for you. Sadly, and as I outlined in the post #1 rules, I probably can't hit your top interests with my prize material (I trade almost all of my extra Yankee stuff to a friend of which we've been trading back and forth for 20+ years), but please remind me again if you collect anything else (besides Yankees and vintage sets which I am aware of) and I'll see what I can come up with.

Because nobody won last year and I ended up sending 2 consolation prizes, I think I will do the same this year, since we had 2 members picking MLB leaders. @WizardofOz1982 , please send me a PM and your address with anything that you focus your collecting on, try to be as broad as you can, and I will send you a consolation prize.

Yah, thanks for the contest! It gave me a reason to check MLB hits leaders from time to time as the season wore on. Turner did pretty good, but couldn't quite catch Freeman. Next year....

I was hoping they would both crack 200 and was especially bummed that when it appeared Turner was a no way to get to 200, but Freddie still had a shot that he ended with 199!
