Quote of the day
"My players aren't in these situations very often and it's good to be tested. It's easy to be a winner when you're winning. You find out a lot about yourself when you have to go and win. We found out a lot about us today." -- UConn women’s basketball coach Geno Auriemma, after a come from behind win in the Sweet 16 against Georgetown on Sunday
Only two days until the MLB regular season starts. I have decided not to provide 2011 sortable stats for the game formally known as RotoHog Salary Cap Baseball, now offered as Fastboint Salary Cap Baseball through Facebook. With a new interface to adapt to, and very limited interest from the RotoGuru community, I have decided that there are better ways to devote my time and effort. I’m also suspending stats production for the RotoHog Stock Exchange game, even though the interface there has not changed. Once again, there doesn’t seem to be much interest. I may resume coverage of these games for football and/or hoops, but I’ll wait until much later to make that call.
I will, however, be producing sortable stats for FanDuel. If you’re unfamiliar with FanDuel, they produce daily contests, both free and with cash fees and prizes. They have already posted regular contests for March 31, and a special “One-Day Grand Slam” for April 1st (no foolin’). I hope to have sortable stats up for that game in the next day or two. If you’ve never tried daily sports contests, this might be a good season to try it out. You get to choose when to play and when to sit it out. And there’s no lingering impact of an unfortunate prior decision. Every day starts afresh.
The five RIBC drafts have been completed, and yesterday I assembled an analysis of consolidated draft results for the five leagues. If you participated in one of those drafts, you might find it interesting to see how your picks compare to the consensus.
