Quote of the day
"I need to get a beer in my hand." -- Graeme McDowell, after winning the U.S. Open

Daily blurb
If you had said at the beginning of the day on Sunday that neither of the 3rd round leaders would finish the tournament under par, you’d have probably figured that either Tiger or Phil would win – or maybe Els. So it was surprising to see all three of them backpedal in synch with all of the other leaders. Well,… not quite in synch with Dustin Johnson. The supposedly unflappable Johnson started flapping early and often, playing a style of game that was recognizable to duffers all around the world. At one point an announcer misspoke and called him Dustin Hoffman – and there was nothing about his golf game at the time to suggest otherwise.

The top score in GuruGolf was -37 by Favorites, who followed the “slow and steady” recipe, having all four golfers active throughout, even though only one of them was individually under double digits (over par). Worst ball honors (+75) were earned by Winnepeg Schlep.

We now enter the final week of interleague play in baseball. Roy Halladay will be happy to get back to NL opposition, after his third straight loss against A.L. teams. His final A.L. outing will come on Friday in Toronto against the one A.L. team he’s never faced in his career. That’ll be interesting.

By the way, after starting out well in interleague play, the N.L. has reverted to form, with the A.L. now sporting a .547 winning percentage against teams from the senior circuit. The two Soxes are the masters so far, each sporting a 10-2 record. The Mets sport the best interleague record among N.L. teams, at 9-3.

The Phillies @ Blue Jays will be played in Philadelphia. It was moved because of the G20 summit in Toronto and all the security needed with all the world leaders at the nearby convention center.

The Jays will bat last and the DH will be used.

Will they switch locker rooms? And serve Tim Horton's coffee?

Wonder if this would be the first time a DH has been used in Philly?

[1] Thanks, I had forgotten about that switch. I should change my schedules to reflect it.
