Quote of the day
"We've put ourselves in a position where if someone stubs their toe, we've got a chance." -- Angels manager Mike Scioscia
Maybe itís because of the east coast media bias where I live, but it seems that the L.A. Angels have quietly put themselves in position to sneak into the A.L. wild card spot. Boston and Tampa Bay are both backpedaling as fast as they can, and the prevailing attitude in Boston seems to be (or have been) that as long as the Rays are losing, the Sox can limp in. Tha Angels havenít exactly been on fire, but they have been creeping up from behind, and now find themselves only two games behind the Red Sox, and even with Tampa Bay. If recent trends persist, the Angels could be in a dead heat heading into the final series of the season. Could be interesting.
The PGA Tour Championship is now underway. Each of the 30 golfers appears on at least one GuruGolf roster this week, although the two cheapest golfers in the field (Mark Wilson and Jonathan Byrd) dominate, each on about 40% of rosters. More importantly, only about 30% of all foursomes have four active golfers this week. Richard Zokol, who is priced at the minimum of $500, appears as a placeholder on 21 rosters. Other notable cheapies include Michelle Wie (9 foursomes), Jack Nicklaus (4), Arnold Palmer (2), David Feherty (2), and individual appearances by Nick Faldo, Gary Player, Billy Casper, and Seve Ballesteros. Iíll bet you wonít find any other fantasy golf game that features those names in competition this week!
