I'll take Kuchar over Day; maybe I can cop a few more jelly beans from you on that one. And as painful as it is to do this, I have to agree with you on the other match. It's not that I hestiate to agree with your picks; it's just that it's so hard to bet against Ian Poulter in any match-play setup.

The best part is that all four of these guys are playing so well, the final match should be great no matter who's in it.

Nice job picking the quarters, by the way.

Book the win. A small 72 to win 60 on Mahan in the final.

Do Analytics Take the Fun Out of Sports?
Apparently that was the topic of one of the presentations at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston last week. The presenter, Yale's Edward Tufte, opined:

Don't let people tell you analytics are reductionist and take the joy out of sports. They mostly just take the stupidity out of sports.

Is he right?

My 12-Team NFBC RotoWire Online Championship Team
I drafted out of the 11-hole for the "Beat Chris Liss" league. I had done a fair amount of research on optimal roster construction from that slot, and I decided I'd go hitter in the first round, three pitchers in 2-4 and then hitting for the next 10 rounds or so before filling in with upside pitchers late. Of course, few battle plans survive the actual war. Here are the results:
