Quote of the day
"It's great to be able to set a record, but my career is not going to be defined by setting one record. My career is going to be defined by my reliability and the way I go about my business on the mound, day in, day out." -- San Diego starter Mat Latos, after setting a MLB record with 15th consecutive starts of 5+ innings with at most two runs allowed
From the perspective of east coast bias, Mat Latos has been very quietly fashioning a monster season, with a major league leading ERA of 2.21, a 0.96 WHIP, and a BAA south of the Mendoza line, while striking out more than a batter per inning. You donít usually find a starting pitcher with a K/IP ratio higher than his WHIP. He was only a 20th round pick in last springís RIBC draft, but heís probably been a top-five pitcher in a variety of fantasy formats this season, hampered modestly by a win total of only 14. If the Pads donít make it to post season play, donít blame him!
The BMW Championship tees off at 9am ET tomorrow. This is the next-to-last GuruGolf tournament, and the final two events do not have a second round cut, which may make it harder to gain ground on the leaders. Make sure you have four active golfers. And if you canít afford 4 active golfers, you can include a min-priced inactive golfer to fill your foursome. Whatever you do, donít leave a slot vacant!
