Maniak Monthly Awards-Dec. 2016

By • Jan 9th, 2017 • Category: Uncategorized

Congratulations to the Springfield Isotopes on winning their second championship in the last three seasons.  While Las Vegas gets the lion’s share of the attention for their sustained success, Springfield’s management has built up their own powerful dynasty through shrewd drafting and solid additions through free agency/trades.  After losing their first two of 2016, the Isotopes won 11 of 12 to steal the division from the Clowns, and star backs Le’Veon Bell and Ezekiel Elliott led the way to a title win over Vegas.  With Elliott being a rookie, and two #1’s the next draft, the future looks even brighter.

Here are the awards for December:
