"I'm not a math whiz, but I think it's doable." -- Boston pitcher John Lackey, on the Red Sox chances to overtake either Tampa Bay or the Yankees
The final preseason NFL game will be this Thursday for all 32 teams, and many will not be playing their first teamers at all. So there won’t be much more on-field evidence to lead you (or mislead you) in your drafting decisions.
The RotoHog Stock Exchange Football game was launched late last week, and I now have those player prices loaded in the sortable stats. I think these prices will remain locked until September 7th, when live trading begins. One significant change in the game structure is that trades will be limited – only four new trades per week. That will probably dampen the Tuesday morning trading flurry that used to dominate weekly activity.

Matt Kuchar may have won The Barclays in dramatic fashion, but he wasn’t necessarily the most productive GuruGolfer. That honor arguably belonged to Kevin Streelman, who not only had the most subpar holes, but got them on relatively more difficult holes. So it not surprising that the top GuruGolf team for the weekend, moe birdies, had Streelman and not Kuchar. The other interesting GuruGolf development is that the leading team in the full season standings , moe eagles (yes, same manager – how’d you guess?), had no one making the cut, allowing the rest of the field to gain some valuable ground.
