Quote of the day
"I'd feel very happy and excited and honored to be in the All-Star Game." -- Dodgers outfield Yasiel Puig, reacting to All-Star speculation after finishing his first month in the majors with 44 hits, the second-highest total for a player’s first calendar month in MLB history behind only Joe DiMaggio (48, May 1936)

Daily blurb
So I lied. Sue me.

I closed out my June 13 blurb saying that I’d be back from vacation and blurbing again on June 24. That was half right, as I was back at RotoGuru World Headquarters on the 24th. But, as often happens when you are away from the daily routines for an extended period, I had plenty of catch-up work to do and just never got over the hump to start blurbing. But today starts a new month, so I’ll force myself.

Since my last blurb, a lot has happened, including:

  • The Heat overtook the Spurs in 7 games, thanks to a last second miracle shot from Ray Allen
  • The NBA draft was held, with the most notable result that in the process, the Celtics blowed themselves up.
  • Meanwhile, the Patriots endured their own “blow up”, with Aaron Hernandez now looking like a top prospect for the “Mean Machine”. With Gronkowski also likely to miss the start of the season, New England’s high-powered 2-headed monster at tight end may turn out to be Tim Tebow!
  • The U.S. Open was expected to cough up low scores at a rain-softened Merion Course, but instead failed to produce a single red number when the tournament was completed.
  • Yasiel Puig finished his first month in the majors with 44 hits in 101 AB, producing a slash line of .436/.467/.713, including 4 steals and 7 HRs.
  • Yankees GM Brian Cashman publicly told ARod to shut his yap (OK, perhaps he said it a bit more colorfully)
  • The Pittsburgh Pirates sport the best record in the major leagues as of the end of June, at 51-30
I’m sure I missed some other good stuff, but suffice it to say, there was no shortage of attention-grabbers. And, for the most part, it’s all old news, so there’s no point in commenting further. Onward to July!
