Quote of the day
"Get to the stadium and watch some film if you still think it's amazing. If you're in it and you know what you're doing and you execute out there, you don't think it's amazing. You know why? Because it's what you're supposed to do." -- ESPN analyst (and former Patriot) Tedy Bruschi, ripping Chad Ochocinco for tweeting that he was amazed by Tom Bradyís ďvideo game numbersĒ against Miami
Iím still working on getting football stats ship-shape. The work Iím doing now is related to the underlying statistical architecture, but I think it will lead to more timely and accurate fantasy points once Iím done Ė and less manual work for me Ė which is always a good thing!
Meanwhile, GuruGolf returns tomorrow for the final two tournaments in the FedEx Cup. There are no more 2nd round cuts, so all active golfers should complete 4 rounds, unless they withdraw. There are also limited low-priced golfers available. If you donít have at least $3850 to work with, you canít afford an active foursome Ė but you can still add a min-priced inactive golfer (like Richard Zokol or Michelle Wie) and then go with three actives. Whatever you do, make sure you have four golfers, as a team with a vacant slot will not score anything for the tournament.
Iím fumbling a bit on how to approach the fantasy hoops season. Normally, Iíd be getting ready to invite & recruit managers for the RIHC and the related qualifying leagues. But with the start of the NBA season so doubtful, it seems kind of silly. On the other hand, if I donít line up leagues in advance, there may not be time to fill up leagues and carry out a draft before any eventual season starts. In any event, Iíll probably wait until the end of baseball before deciding how to approach the issue.
