Quote of the day
"When the double was hit, and the ball came back in, everybody started cheering. (Jhonny) Peralta caught the ball and looked up at the board checking the hits. That's when I knew he didn't know. I was like, `Come on, Jhonny.’ " -- Detroit pitcher Justin Verlander, on the moment when his no-hit bid was broken up in the 7th inning

In GuruGolf, Jordan Spieth not only played his way into the British Open, he also provided an extra GuruGolf trade to 40 GuruGolf managers – and maybe even effectively two trades, since he won’t need to be sold this week. One of those teams is Masters2, whose -58 was the top best ball score of the weekend. Worst ball honors were earned by Liters with a +38.
This was also the closing week of the four-week contest between the two Opens – the “Open Faced Sandwich Contest”. Here are the prize winners:
Best ball: Dragons
Worst ball: JFKs CLUBS
If you would like to add any of the unlisted British Open golfers to your foursome this week, please send me an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) by Wednesday morning and I’ll add them.
