Daily blurb
Yesterday brought a number of RotoGuru-relevant developments, some short term, and some with potential longer term implications.

In the shortest term issue, the Puerto Rico Open started yesterday morning, but just barely. Only fifteen players had teed off when play was suspended (weather), and there is a chance that today may be a washout as well. If the tournament extends past the weekend, GuruGolf roster setting for the next event will be delayed, since repricing for next week is dependent on the Puerto Rico results.

Second, the Market Madness contest site has been re-activated. There isnít really much to do for now, however. The site will be offline again on Sunday evening to set up the 2010 brackets, and then reopened by 10pm or so. You can register now if you wish, although you can certainly wait until next week for that.

Third, the RIBC (baseball) draft will be starting on Monday morning (and maybe getting an early jump this weekend.) Iíll post a link to the draft results in Mondayís blurb. For the next couple of weeks, baseball drafting will be a real time killer for me!

Finally, RotoHog launched a Salary Cap baseball game yesterday. Looking at the rules, it is clear that this is essentially a clone of the basic and ultimate TSN games from prior years. Since TSN has not (yet) released a similar game (nor are they even commenting on it), the presumption is that TSN is folding its fantasy games tent and/or RotoHog will be taking over that enterprise Ė although the total lack of comment from TSN leaves us all guessing if there is more to this story. In any event, it looks like youíll have to move to the RotoHog site if you want to play the TSN salary cap style of game. Iíll plan to provide comparable stats and tools for that game, although the change in platform creates some technical issues that will delay my ability to produce those stats right away.

Just got a message from TSN. They are not going to do Fantasy Baseball any more. So thanks for the information on the Rotohog game.
