7-6-11: Notes

Hello again everybody...

Been a while, I know. I hope everyone had a safe and happy 4th of July. I spent a pleasant evening watching three different fireworks shows from the cozy confines of my deck. Not a bad way to spend the evening, and I didn't have to fight traffic!

So we're into the meat of July (just 10 shopping days left until the single greatest day of the calendar year!), and teams are making news all over the place.

What does that mean?

Yep... it's “Notes” time!

And we'll get to the notating...

“Statistics: the only science that enables different experts using the same figures to draw different conclusions.

Which leads me to the first of today's...


The All-Star rosters have been announced... and the fans nearly got it right.
