Quote of the day
"I'm in a funk right now. Weird things are happening. I've just got to keep working." -- Boston starter Jon Lester, after his fourth consecutive loss
Jon Lester concedes that he’s not pitching his best of late. On the other hand, in his last four starts, here are his per-game averages: 6.7 IP, 7 hits, 2 BB, 3 ER. Not great, but certainly not awful. Unfortunately for him (and his fantasy owners), they have produced a W/L record of 0-4. You’d think that a starting pitcher on the Red Sox could pick up a few wins with those stats. But so goes the fate of the Red Sox, who have scored a total of only 9 runs in those four starts combined.
The Turning Stone Resort Championship got started early this morning, but is already in a weather delay. Brendon de Jonge is the popular favorite in GuruGolf, on more than 40% of active foursomes. I guess that’s not surprising at all, since he has made 8 straight cuts, and finished in the top ten in 3 of his last 5 tournaments.
If you are mulling over the opportunity to join the RIFC AA football league (see yesterday’s blurb), act quickly. The league is almost full.
