Quote of the day
"It never gets old, that's for sure. It feels really special. We're going to enjoy it right now, but we still have some stuff we want to do. And it's nice to have 11 days to figure out how we're going to do it." -- Minnesota first baseman Michael Cuddyer, after the Twins clinched their 6th division title in 9 years
Breaking news! The Washington Nationals won their 63rd game of the season last night. With only 162 games on their schedule, this assures that they cannot lose 100 or more. That hasnít happened since 2007, and itís never happened in their current stadium, Nationals Park, which they moved into in 2008.
After a one-week hiatus, GuruGolf resumes action tomorrow with The Tour Championship. This is the last event in the GuruGolf season, and some teams will be unable to afford four active golfers this week. If that applies to you, do not leave one spot vacant, as that will result in an invalid lineup and a score of zero. Instead, you should pull up the ďPrice listĒ page and pick up an inactive golfer for a cost of $500. (Youíll find more than 400 alternatives to pick from.) This should then allow you to afford three active golfers in the other three slots. And itís possible that, even if you can afford four actives, you might want to pick up an inactive guy just to get three better active golfers. If you stick with four of the cheapest active golfers, itís going to be hard to differentiate your team from many others.
With golf and baseball winding down, it must be time to start thinking about basketball. Yesterday I announced the twelve managers in the 2010-11 RotoGuru Invitational Hoops Challenge (RIHC), which means itís now time to sign up for one of the AAA or AA qualifying leagues. Iím also looking for a few volunteers to commish one of those leagues. The NBA season starts five weeks from yesterday, so weíll need to get organized post haste.
