Essex have signed Simon Harmer, the South Africa offspinner, on a one-year deal as they prepare for life in the first division of the Championship. Timofey Mozgov Black Jersey .Harmer will qualify as a Kolpak registration and will help address a glaring Essex weakness. They won the second division title largely without a specialist spinner - Ashar Zaidi played only two matches - even in a season when changed toss regulations encouraged spinners back into the domestic game.Harmer made his Test debut for South Africa in January 2015 and has five Test caps, with 20 wickets at an average of 29.40 with best match figures of 7 for 153. He will be available in all competitions next season.Chris Silverwood, Essexs coach, said: Simon is an exciting cricketer who has played at the top level of the game for his country. He will give us another high quality spin option in all formats.Harmer said: Playing county cricket has always been a boyhood dream of mine and to have the opportunity to fulfil that dream at Essex is very surreal.I am really looking forward to adding as much value as I possibly can to the team and making sure our time in the Specsavers County Championship Division One is a long one.Harmer has had a satisfying month. He was also appointed as Warriors captain in the Sunfoil Series when Colin Ingram stood down after knee surgery.Harmer is the second South African to win a non-overseas contract in county cricket in successive days, following Colin Ackermanns signing for Leicestershire.

RIO DE JANEIRO -- Winning a gold medal in soccer, and not worrying about anything else, is no longer good enough in Brazil with the country holding the Olympics. Taco Charlton Cowboys Jersey .The country wants to win as many events as it can and finish in the top 10 in the number of overall medals won.A tall order for a country with little Olympic history like Brazil -- but something the host nation thinks is attainable.Of course, soccer is a passion in Brazil, Adriana Bahar, the sports planning general manager for the BOC, told The Associated Press. But now we want to focus on the 41 other disciplines in the Olympics.Countries always get a medal bounce as the Olympic host. China got one in Beijing, Britain in London, and now its Brazils turn to rise.Brazil has won three medals through six full days of competition. Thats one short of what Michael Phelps has claimed on his own, but still a source of pride for the country.Rafaela Silva won gold in judo, Felipe Wu took silver in shooting and Mayra Aguiar has bronze in judo.Despite the early success, the Rio de Janeiro Olympics have yet to catch on across the sprawling metropolitan area of 12 million.Stadiums for basketball and judo have been full. But many venues have been lightly attended, particularly in sports unfamiliar to Brazilians. The opening day of golf appeared to have more rules officials in the gallery than fans.This could change if Brazil starts winning medals to generate a groundswell of interest -- even in the citys impoverished favelas, which are distant from most of the venues, and economically even farther away.Its always good for a home nation to win medals, International Olympic Committee spokesman Mark Adams said. Its always goes down well. We hope they do, but the competition doesnt always go how you might hope it would.Soccer defines Brazil, particularly when it comes to the World Cup. But soccer matters less in the Olympics, where Brazil has never won gold.Its more important to win a lot of medals than simply one gold medal in soccer, Brazilian fan Anderson Silveira said, cheering at tennis match on Thursday at the Olympic Park. Id give up a soccer gold medal for doing well and showing we are good in many things.Bahar declined to guess how many medals it will take to finish in the top 10. A good guess is 25, which is 50 percent more than Brazil won in London.As Brazils ambitions have swollen, so has its team with 465 members this time -- almost twice as many as London and Beijing. This is partly because as the host nation, Brazil qualifies automatically for most events. Its also hired 56 foreign coaches to handle the crunch.Brazil has usually done well in volleyball, beach volleyball, judo and sailing. Its picked up a few medals in swimming, track and field, and equestrian events. The idea is to contend in more -- handball, gymnastics, boxing, tennis, canoe sprint and archery.Were working to win medals in places we havent before, and then hold what we have, Bahar said. This is a serious moment for everyone. Its a unique moment, but we hope its not the end. We hope its just one milestone as we establish ourselves.---Stephen Wade on Twitter: .His work can be found at Ryan Switzer Jersey .Y. -- Vancouver Canucks goaltender Roberto Luongo had little trouble picking up his first shutout of the season against a Buffalo Sabres team thats having trouble scoring goals. Travis Frederick Cowboys Jersey . Three came down to the fourth quarter while quarterbacks continued to shine in all four games; so important to the overall quality of the game. . The defence is doing its part, too. Drew Brees threw a pair of touchdown passes in the first half and the guys on the other side made sure that was enough, sending the Saints to a 17-13 victory over the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night.

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. Paul Martin Jersey . -- Jay Ajayi talked with his offensive line before Sundays game about his yardage objective, and at the time the numbers discussed seemed outrageously optimistic.After all, the Miami Dolphins second-year pro had never had a 100-yard day.I told him before the game, `Lets go for a couple of hundred, guard Jermon Bushrod said. He said 150. And I said, `No, a couple of hundred.Ajayi met the goal by crossing it. He ran 62 yards for a touchdown on his final carry, pushing his total to 204 yards and punctuating the Dolphins 30-15 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers.It was by far the most impressive victory for the Dolphins (2-4) under first-year coach Adam Gase. Their only other win came in overtime against woeful Cleveland.No one likes losing week after week, Ajayi said. We were determined to come out this week and put a stop to that.Ajayi became the first NFL rusher this year to top 160 yards. He joined Ricky Williams as the only Dolphins to rush for at least 200 yards and two scores in a game.Ajayi carried a career-high 25 times, and his other touchdown came on a 1-yard run. He became the Dolphins first 200-yard rusher since Reggie Bush in 2011.Afterward, he said the milestone was still stinking in.In the NFL, probably thats a big thing, Ajayi said. It hasnt hit me yet, but its a big deal. Its something to cherish for sure.It helped that Gases offensive line was intact for the first time this year after a series of health issues. Along with the stout one-man ground game, Miami netted 252 yards passing without a sack.It makes a big difference when we have holes and the quarterback is not on his back, Gase said.Ajayi was a fantasy league bargain last week because he totaled just 117 yards in the first five games. He ran for 187 all of last season, his rookie year.He was so off the radar that even after the game, Steelers coach Mike Tomlin didnt refer to Ajayi by name.That back ran hard, ran through tackles, Tomlin said.The Dolphins saw the potential in the former fifth-round pick from Boise State, even though he fell out of favor at times this year because of fumbling and attitude issues when he wasnt happy about his place on the depth chart.Ive watched him struggle, teammate Jarvis Landry said, and Ive watched him grow by leaps and bounds.Gase went with a four-back rotation early in the season, but when the offense sputtered, he decided to try Ajayi as his feature back.Ajayis previous career high for carries was 13, so he was understandably tired in the fourth quarter. But rookie running back Kenyan Drake and other teammates urged him to finish strong against the equally weary Steelers.It felt great, Ajayi said. The other running backs were pushing me. My boy Drake kept saying, `Get that 200.On the last carry, he did. Objective accomplished.---Follow Steven Wine on Twitter: His work can be found at NFL website: and Patric Hornqvist Penguins Jersey .Y. - Free agent outfielder Jacoby Ellsbury, fresh off winning the World Series with Boston, reached agreement with the rival New York Yankees on a seven-year contract worth about $153 million, a person familiar with the negotiations said Tuesday night.

Gerald Everett Youth Jersey . -- Golden State Warriors coach Mark Jackson asked his players a simple question during Fridays morning shootaround: How many of them had ever been on a team 14 games over . . - Oakland Raiders running back Rashad Jennings was speaking to a group of local high school students earlier this week when the conversation turned to the importance of being prepared when opportunities in life arise. The first weekend of action since the first College Football Playoff rankings have been released features what is usually among the most anticipated games yearly in the Southeastern Conference (No. 1 Alabama at No. 15 LSU) and what could be an elimination game in the Big Ten between No. 9 Nebraska and No. 6 Ohio State.As the calendar switches to the stretch run in November, here are some things you need to know about Week 10 of the college football season.BEST GAMENo. 9 Nebraska at No. 6 Ohio StateThe winner of Saturdays primetime game remains in contention for a berth in the Big Ten championship game and a shot at the College Football Playoff while the loser is likely playing for a spot in a New Years Six bowl game.Both teams are 7-1 and 4-1 in conference play. The Cornhuskers, who are playing in their first top 10 matchup since 2011, need a win to avoid potentially falling into a five way tie in the West Division. The Buckeyes are looking for a victory in order to make their Nov. 26 showdown at Michigan a game for the East Division championship.HESIMAN WATCHLSU running back Leonard Fournette went into last years game against Alabama as a Heisman favorite. His hopes took a significant hit after he was held to 31 yards and a touchdown in a 30-16 loss.Fournette missed three of the first six games this season due to an ankle injury but appears to be healthy again. He rushed for a school-record 284 yards and three touchdowns in the Tigers win over Ole Miss two weeks ago and is averaging 167.5 yards in the games he has played.A strong showing against the Crimson Tide, who has the nations stingiest run defense, could put Fournette back in the conversation for a spot at the Dec. 10 ceremony in New York.Louisvilles Lamar Jackson remains the favorite as the fifth-ranked Cardinals are at Boston College.NUMBERS TTO KNOW28 -- LSUs average margin of victory in its three wins since Ed Orgeron became coach. John Johnson Rams Jersey. Going into Saturdays game against Alabama, the Tigers have outscored opponents 73-7 in the second half under Orgeron.19 -- Years since Washington and Washington State both started 5-0 in conference play. The fourth-ranked Huskies host California and the No. 25 Cougars are at Arizona on Saturday.843 -- Total yards by Clemsons Deshaun Watson in his past two games (wins over North Carolina State and Syracuse). Watson and the third-ranked Tigers host Syracuse on Saturday as he had 473 yards against the Orange last year (368 passing, 105 rushing), which is the second highest of his career.UNDER THE RADARAfter Kentucky lost its first two games, Mark Stoops was thought to be on the hot seat. But the Wildcats (5-3, 4-2) have won five of their last six, including three straight SEC games for the first time since 1999.A win over Georgia on Saturday could make Kentucky bowl eligible for the first time since 2010. A big reason for the win streak is Kentuckys rushing attack, which is averaging 219.5 yards over the past three games.The Bulldogs (4-4, 2-4) won their first three games under Kirby Smart but have dropped four of their last five.COACH IN NEED OF A WINCincinnati is 29-18 in four seasons under Tommy Tuberville but only 11-10 since the start of last season. Last weeks 34-13 loss at Temple marked the first time in 137 games it had less than 200 yards in total offense.The 4-4 Bearcats put a 30-game non-conference home win streak on the line when they host Brigham Young (4-4).---AP College Football website: Joe Reedy at Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' ' 
#BeAGameChanger, the ECB tweeted in April this year, when it was nominated by the Womens Sport Trust as National Governing Body of the Year. . History will be made this summer, when the inaugural Kia Super League is launched.England has a long and chequered history of womens league cricket. Womens leagues have existed in the north of England since the 1920s, organised in places where mens league cricket had traditionally been strong: mainly Lancashire and Yorkshire. Bradford, for example, staged a Womens Evening Cricket League, which by 1932 had 23 teams enrolled. In 1930, Keighley CC of the Bradford League organised the Keighley Ladies Cricket Competition, a knockout tournament where the cup was provided by the mothers of the Keighley mens team. The Yorkshire Evening Post described one womens league match in 1931 as a grimly fought out struggle… Bradfordians should roll up in force to encourage their womenfolk in the field.In some ways the Kia Super League is simply a continuation of this radical tradition of womens league cricket in England. Northern league cricket in the 1930s changed the face of womens cricket for good. Why? Because it was one of the first times that female cricketers in England could receive payment for their activities. While players were not paid directly, collections were made for outstanding performances: in 1930, a Mrs L Wilson was paid £4 in two successive matches, having taken a hat-trick in each.Similarly, the Super League allows for female domestic cricketers - so often still forced to pay their own way when it comes to playing their sport - to earn match fees and expenses. There will also be prize money for the first time ever in English womens domestic cricket. The prospect has already tempted several ex-international players out of retirement: Laura Newton, Arran Brindle and Rosalie Fairbairn (nee Birch) among them. Fairbairn retired in 2009 at the age of just 25, citing the need to focus on her career, having been offered a full-time post with Chance to Shine as a project manager and PR officer. The fact is, womens cricket is still very rarely lucrative enough for anyone to earn their living from it. Many players, even the best ones, are forced to exit the game early, concerned for their future career prospects.The Super League might just change all that. While it is important to note that KSL players cannot yet be considered professionals - there is no salary for participants - the ECB has stated that it is its aspiration for it to become so. Ironically the Womens Cricket Association, the governing body of womens cricket before the ECB took over in 1998, was concerned about league cricket in the 1930s precisely because it believed that if female cricket became competitive, it would lead to a seeping professionalisation of the sport - anathema to those who were amateurs in the purest sense of the word.It didnt happen like that in the end, of course: there simply wasnt enough money invested in the leagues to do so. But perhaps this time around, with the backing of a body as rich as the ECB, things might be different. And if domestic womens cricket can begin to be professionalised, then the sky is the limit.Even with this uncertainty, though, it is already clear that the Kia Super League, which begins at the end of July, will indeed make history.Eighty years ago womens league cricket had an extremely limited player pool. Most teams were works sides. The Preston and District League, for example, featured teams from Ensign Lamps, Preston Steam Laundry and Penwortham Mills. It was employer sponsorship, and the provision of high-quality works grounds, that made womens league cricket possible. Thus, while mens league teams could call upon the likes of Learie Constantine to bolster their ranks, doing the same was out of the question for their female counterparts. By contrast, the Super League is built on the principle of the best (from all over England) playing the best. Over the coming six-team three-week T20 competition, 72 of the best female players in England will be competing under the banner of Lancashire Thunder, Loughborough Lightning, Southern Vipers, Surrey Stars, Western Storm and Yorkshire Diamonds. And with three international players per team, the best talent from around the world will also be on display. On 12 August, Old Trafford will play host to Hayley Matthews, the star of the Womens World T20 final, giving it some welly for Thunder. Rock up to The Oval on August 4 and Meg Lanning of Stars will be showing exactly why she is widely considered the best female cricketer in the world right now. Suzie Bates will be showing off her power-hitting abilities at the Ageas Bowl on August 8. And if youre Midlands-based, get over to Loughborough University on August 3 or 5 to watch the ridiculously talented Ellyse Perry in action for Lightning.Even the inaugural, phenomenally successful Womens Big Bash League could not boast such a dazzling list of names. Sadly, unlike in the WBBL - but like with those very first womens leagues back in the 1930s - youre going to have to get along to the grounds in person if you want to watch the games. Sky may have covered a lot of England Womens matches in recent years but it has recently been confirmed that there will be no live TV broadcast of any KSL games this summer - including finals day, August 21.The apparent logic is that the mens T20 Blast final is the day before, and that it would not be logistically possible for Sky to cover both events. And, thanks to the ECBs current broadcast deal with Sky, it is not currently possible for another broadcaster to be approached. For a sport that is seeking to grow its fan base, this is a big mistake.If we really want KSL to be a game-changer in the long term, then lets (as was hinted at when the competition was announced in June last year) aim to get it on free-to-air TV. Given the viewing figures seen for televised games during the WBBL, this surely isnt much to ask?For now, though, well have to be content with the Super League trying to rival some of the audiences that womens domestic cricket achieved at the height of league popularity in the 1930s (some 8000 spectators attended a match between Lancashire and Yorkshire at Bradford Park Avenue in 1931). In common with the Yorkshire Evening Post, Id urge not just Bradfordians but Londoners, Lancastrians, Loughburghians and all those in between to roll up in force and encourage their womenfolk in the field. Youre bound to see some exciting cricket. . -- Bobby Ryan helped the U. . The Celtics closed out their first preseason under Stevens on Wednesday night with a 101-97 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, who rested a lot of their lineup including former Celtics Kevin Garnett and Paul Pierce. . In what the team had called a retirement, Ryan said Thursday that he is resigning as chief executive of the Rangers in a move effective at the end of this month. SAN DIEGO -- Chargers right guard D.J. Fluker didnt practice Tuesday and is likely out for Sundays preseason game at the Minnesota Vikings.Coach Mike McCoy said Fluker injured his right foot during Mondays practice. Fluker, who battled ankle and knee issues last year, had an MRI, which McCoy said was negative.Whether Fluker will play in the preseason finale against the San Francisco 49ers on Sept. 1 isnt clear.Flukers injury, while not considered serious, gave the Chargers pause. The team used 24 different combinations along an injured offensive line last season, which contributed to their 4-12 record.The Chargers signed Chicago Bears free agent Matt Slauson to solidify the unit. Before Fluker went down, the starting five was intact throughout the summer practices.Youve heard me talk all camp how great its been to have all five guys working together, quarterback Philip Rivers said. So hopefully its not an extended period of time where we have to shuffle guys in and out. But it gives oother guys a chance to get in there because, shoot, we know this league and what its like. To have the same five all season? I hope we do, but it is going to be tough.Spencer Pulley, an undrafted rookie from Vanderbilt, is expected to replace Fluker on Sunday.You know how important your six, seven and eight are, Rivers said. So it gives one of those guys a chance to get in there.Rivers is impressed with Pulley, who is sliding over from center.Hes really done a good job for us, Rivers said. You never know what to expect. There are 90 guys out here and you sign a free-agent guard, center, whatever. But he has shown hes very capable of having a chance to be a good player.Rivers, who didnt play on Friday against the Arizona Cardinals, expects to go in Minnesota.---Online:AP NFL website: and AP NFL Twitter feed: Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' ' 
In 1987, Donald Trump released a book called The Art of the Deal. Tyler Bozak Maple Leafs Jersey .I have not read this book by Donald Trump. But I bring up Donald Trumps name here not because I have or have not read Donald Trumps book but rather as a totally cheap ploy to fool search engines into putting the link to this article, which has nothing to do with Donald Trump or his politics, toward the top of the results. Reminds me of something I was just not saying to Hillary Clinton: I need all the traffic I can get and, regardless of whether you are a supporter of Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, the fact remains that there are tons of people searching for stories that discuss, in some way or fashion, Donald Trump and/or Hillary Clinton. So, in a blatant, cheap and completely disingenuous way to lure some of these people to an article that has nothing to do with Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, I have instead put the names of Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump many times over at the start of this article -- which has nothing to do with Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton -- in the hopes they think it does, in fact, discuss Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump. Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Hillary Clinton, Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Trump, Clinton, Clinton, Trump, Trump, Clinton, Clinton, Trump, Clinton. I just mentioned Hillary Clintons and Donald Trumps names 18 times each, so as to not show favoritism to either candidate in this lame ploy thats all about grabbing attention and fooling someone into thinking they are getting an article about Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump, when in fact it has absolutely nothing to do with the election between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. Oh, and by the way: Ken Bone, Ken Bone, Ken Bone, Ken Bone.So thats the wrong way to do it, and, the truth is, I did bring up the title The Art of the Deal for a reason. The other day, I got a text from a friend Im in a league with:How tradeable is Antonio Brown?I own Antonio Brown in the 10-team PPR league (starting 3 receivers) that we are both in, so I know he is asking me as fellow owner and potential trade partner, not as his friend who gives fantasy advice to people not named Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump.I wrote back this: Well, I drafted him No. 1 overall for a reason, but for the right price anyone is available.That is the totally correct response. In essence, I value the Steelers wideout highly, but Im happy to listen. What do you have?He then sent a group of three players he was offering for Brown. It was a little short of what I wanted, but it was certainly a reasonable offer, especially for an initial offer. I told him to let me consider it and look at his team -- also the correct response -- which I then did. I looked at his roster more closely and then sent a text:Interesting. I have a counter. Let me know when you want to talk.Then he wrote back, Just make your counter. But if it involves Ezekiel Elliott, dont bother.And thats a huge mistake. I am in a handful of leagues this year, and I find stuff like this happening a lot. My friend made a huge error there. I mean first, its a bit silly to ask me to consider trading my best player when he wont even listen to hearing about a deal for his. But aside from that, it was a tactical error.What he should have done is said, What do you have? Or he should have given me a time to talk on the phone -- even if he had no intention of trading the Cowboys running back and never would, no matter what. He should at least let me think I have a shot at Zeke. Get me excited about the possibility. Hear what I am interested in on his team and then negotiate down from that.And that brought me to thinking about trade negotiation in general, which is a valuable skill fantasy. Im always one of the most active trade talkers in any league I am in, partially because thats some of the fun of it, partially because you can always improve and partially because Im always open to discussing anything, so folks know they can talk about anyone with me.But I think it is a dying skill or art, if you will. Too many times I see or hear from folks who should have been able to make a deal but werent able to because they approached it wrong.So here, quickly now, are five tips on improving your negotiation skills: the five Ls, if you will -- or even if you wont.1. Let go: everyone is availableFirst, every player on your team should be available. Its like that old joke:Me: Would you lick the bottom of my shoe for a dollar? You: What? No, thats gross. Me: What if I gave you a million dollars? You: Well, yeah, sure, for a million dollars I would lick the bottom of your shoe. Me: How about doing it for two dollars? You: I told you -- thats gross. I wouldnt do that. Me: I think weve established you would do that. Now were just negotiating price. At the right price, you should be willing to trade any player on your team. Even if its unlikely, being dismissive immediately shuts down trade talk. Be open to anything. Hear what a potential trade partner says about your stud, ask for the world and then back down from that. But by being willing to listen, you never know what the other might offer up. I had never thought about dealing Antonio Brown in that league. But after his offer, I started thinking about it and was open to the idea, but when he said Zeke was off the table, that killed the deal. Who knows what players we might have added to those two to make a deal. Maybe Im crazy about Zeke and would have offered Brown and others for him. (I wouldnt have in this case, but you never know.)An addendum to that is just being willing to listen. I texted another friend about a potential trade: Hey, wanna talk a little trade? He wrote back: Im not really interested in making any trades right now. Thats also a mistake. Just because youre not looking to deal someone doesnt mean you shouldnt listen. Your team can always improve. Rule 1 is always be willing to listen and dont mark any player off-limits.2. ListenToo many times folks think only about what a deal can do for them and not about why their potential trade partner might do the deal. So listen to them. The first thing I try to do is talk. When you talk to people, you can hear in their voice what they think, why they think, how strongly they feel about a player or scenario. Email and texting are imperfect forms of communication. So I always ask if we can get on the phone to discuss. I also ask, whether we are talking or writing, what they are looking for. I may look at their team and think they need help at wideout, but then they say, I could use an upgrade at tight end and I think, Huh. OK, good to know. But it doesnt matter what you think. So focus on improving their tight end situation as opposed to offering up deals they wont be interested in.One thing I like to do is ask them to rank their own players. Say I am looking for a running back. I will ask my potential trade partner: Hey, of these four backs you have, will you rank them for me? That does two things. One, it places a value on each guy to help narrow negotiations, and two, it allows me to see clearly how they view their players. Because theres a decent chance they might value their players differently than I do. So if the player I think is No. 2 they rank as RB4 -- OK, now I have my target. OK, lets discuss your lowest-ranked guy. This allows both of you to find common ground quickly.3. Logic: Use itI always explain my thinking. One trick to selling anything is explaining the problem, then offering the solution. So I always try to explain my logic and thinking. I also dont try to hide anything.Look, as soon as so-and-so comes back, youre down to one usable running back. I desperately need a tight end now that so-and-so is hurt. This player on my team is good, but honestly, Im never starting him over X player or Y player. So let me give you my guy who is just going to sit on my bench all season, and you give me your stud tight end. The downgrade from your stud tight end to your backup isnt as steep as what youre playing at running back now. So isnt a lineup with my guy at your running back spot and a replacement tight end better than the stud tight end and this backup running back in your lineup?I dont try to talk down the other persons players. Most people are smart. If youre inquiring about a guy, they know that player has value. Offering your honest thought process, even if they dont agree with it, helps with the negotiation and gives them something to react to, rather than just an unsolicited and generic trade offer email with no context.4. Look: See the other persons sideLook at the trade from the others point of view. If you were them, would you do this deal? My late, great Uncle Lester used to say, If you can get 80 percent of what you want in a deal, take it. Most people screw it up trying to get the last 20 percent. You want to improve your team -- thats great. But trying to rip someone off rarely works in leagues in which folks know what they are doing. Its a waste of time, and it gives you a reputation of being impossible to deal with -- Hes unreasonable about players. By the way, if you can easily rip someone off, find a new league. Theres nothing fun about that. But also because, invariably, you probably will want to make a deal with that person again, so scorching the earth afterward or bragging about how well you did in the deal is not smart. So look at it from their point of view, and if you can say that you would agree to the other side of the deal, then its a deal that will most likely get done.5. Lose: Think about what you are giving upWhat team owners have to lose is often overlooked when evaluating a trade. The first guy offered me three players for Antonio Brown. Great, but I really like my roster. And if I make that deal, I have to lose two players from my bench. So the trade for me is really Antonio Brown plus my two bench guys for his three guys. Looking at it from that standpoint, it didnt make sense. When evaluating trades, both offers you are receiving and ones you are putting out there, consider the entirety of the transaction -- not just what you are getting but also what you (or your trade partner) have to lose.One last item that doesnt have a cute L name: advertise. If you are going to trade a big-name player, let folks know. Another friend in a different league was asking me what to do. Decimated by injuries, his team really has only Steelers running back LeVeon Bell as a usable chip. So I suggested he put it out to the league. LeVeon is on the block. Make your best offer. As opposed to trying to go to one or two individual owners, put it out there and let the competition drive the market. Youll be able to play offers against one another and get a better deal for yourself. And this will put you in conversation with more owners, so you know what is available and what isnt. You can always make multiple trades.Oh, and by the way, negotiation is a skill in fantasy football, so stop with the vetoes. All owners should be allowed to coach their own team, even if its done poorly -- even if you dont agree with their decision. Unless theres obvious collusion, no trade should ever be vetoed. And the people who use the veto as a strategy and vote down any trade that doesnt involve them are among the worst kind of people in fantasy football. Win on the virtual field, not by using a veto disingenuously.Good luck out there. This is the time of the season when you should have a good idea of what your team has and needs, but there is still enough of the season left to make a difference. Thanks, as always, to Kyle Soppe of ESPN Fantasy research for his help with this. Lets get to it.Quarterbacks I love in Week 6Drew Brees, Saints: Im putting him here because I am the only guy to have him as the No. 1 QB this week. Off the bye and at home against a Panthers team on a short week, this is a good spot for Brees, as he has followed a bye with a home game twice in the past five years. In those two games, he has 695 passing yards and nine touchdowns. Death, taxes and you start Drew Brees at home. He has enjoyed seven straight home games with three or more touchdown passes, including Week 13 last year against a Panthers secondary that was certainly stronger than this years inconsistent version. Brees is worth the price in cash games for daily.Carson Palmer, Cardinals: Palmer was actually dropped in some leagues due to shaky performance and the concussion, but he has been cleared to play this week. And while I am concerned long term about his viability as an every-week starter this season, I do think hes a top-10 guy this week at home against a Jets team that is allowing opponents to complete 71.7 percent of passes, most in the NFL. Only three teams have allowed more touchdown passes, and with David Johnson keeping defenses honest, expect the Cardinals to press the pace and catch the Jets in man coverage a lot. That bodes well for all the Cardinals playmakers.Derek Carr, Raiders: Im the highest on him and not everyone has Carr as a top-10 play this week. I understand the concerns, though. Carr wasnt great against the Chiefs last season, prior to the beatdown by Pittsburgh the Chiefs were giving up just 233 passing yards a game and they are coming off a bye. Im not buying it and heres why: The Chiefs have only five sacks in four games this season and of Carrs 64 career passing touchdowns, 52 of them (81 percent) have come when hes not under pressure. With the Raiders offensive line and a strong run game to set up play-action, Carr should have all day to find Amari Cooper, Michael Crabtree & Co. In fantasy, QBs are either start no matter what or play the matchups. This season, Carr has moved into the start no matter what category.Other receiving votes: Speaking of a lack of pressure, only two teams have fewer sacks than the Raiders this season, they give up the most passing yards per game and Alex Smith has five straight multi-touchdown pass games against the Raiders. Sunday makes it six straight. ... Since becoming the starter for the Bears three weeks ago, Brian Hoyer is the third-best QB in fantasy, has the most passing yards and only three QBs have more touchdown passes. Hes still available in 82 percent of leagues and gets a decent matchup at home against the Jags. ... I have no doubt that the Patriots will be able to move the ball on Cincy, which means Andy Dalton is going to have to throw to keep up. New England has been middle of the pack in pass defense this season and has given up at least 15 fantasy points to opposing QBs in every game except the Thursday night shutout of the Texans. Dalton has at least 16 points in every game except the one against the Broncos, so the Red Rifle should be a fairly usable QB2.Quarterbacks I hate in Week 6Philip Rivers, Chargers: Did you hear last Thursday nights broadcast of the Cards-49ers? At one point, the announcers spoke of fantasy football in dismissive terms, which was odd to me since the only people watching Drew Stanton versus Blaine Gabbert in a battle of one-win teams when there is playoff baseball are fantasy owners. Nutty. I mention this because I never love having guys on Thursday night games. There have certainly been some huge performances, just like David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald had last week, but overall its often ugly football. Rivers plays on Thursday night and in addition to the short week, this is obviously not a great matchup. In two games against the Broncos last season, he averaged 215 passing yards per game and had just two touchdowns and two interceptions. Through five games, the Broncos have allowed just three passing touchdowns total. Rivers is outside my top 15 this week.Eli Manning, Giants: He just doesnt look right. The entire offense seems out of sync and the Ravens defense has been strong this season. Sure, the Ravens have always faced the best competition, but whatever. You think the Giants are an elite offense these days? Eli has thrown two touchdowns in the past four games. Facing a Ravens team giving up the fifth-fewest passing yards per game this season (190.8), not only is Eli outside my top 15 this week, hes an easy drop for me in 10-team leagues.Blake Bortles, Jaguars: Dont look now but Vic Fangios Bears defense has been not-terrible at home this season, giving up just 403 yards and one touchdown total in two home games to Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz. Out of the bye, Bortles is coming off of consecutive games with less than 210 passing yards, something he didnt do last season. With Brian Hoyer and Jordan Howard going ball control, its hard to see this game getting into crazy shootout mode, so Bortles is a lower-end QB2 for me this week.Running backs I love in Week 6C.J. Anderson, Broncos: I know, I know. It was great, then it wasnt, and now theres some new guy and were not sure what to do. So basically, Anderson is like everyones first marriage. But I suggest therapy, hard work and sticking with it. Getting RT Donald Stephenson and TE Virgil Green back should help the run game in a matchup with the Chargers I expect the Broncos to control, and while you dont love to see Devontae Booker getting as many snaps as he did last week, I wonder how much of that was due to game flow. Booker is a must-own if you have Anderson, but either way, Anderson currently ranks fifth in red zone rushing attempts, so Im riding CJA against a Bolts team that has allowed a league-high eight red zone rushing scores.Lamar Miller, Texans: If not now, when? If not him, who? Listen, Fantasy Moses, it has been 40 days and 40 nights since Lamar Miller sniffed a touchdown. Or at least it seems that way. That ends this weekend, as Miller gets to the promised land with two sheep. Wait. That didnt come out right. Look, I was crazy high on him in the preseason and I get it, he hasnt delivered the way you expected. But he currently ranks fourth in rushes and touches among RBs and the Colts have allowed 100 rushing yards to running backs or a rushing touchdown in every game this season, and for 11 straight games overall.Christine Michael, Seahawks: The Falcons are allowing the second-most yards after first contact per carry this season (2.21 ... for reference, thats 41.7 percent above league average), and Michael himself is top 10 in yards per carry before contact. So, he doesnt get touched for a while and when the Falcons touch him they have trouble holding on. Got it. Gig em Aggies. Michael is a top-10 play for me.Others receiving votes: I know he left last week with a leg injury, but as I write this on Wednesday night it appears as though Eddie Lacy will go and may get all the work, as James Starks is banged up. Looking like the guy from 2014, I like Eddie to eat, er, gain lots of yards, against a Cowboys team allowing the second-most yards before contact per rush this season. ... It was fun while it lasted, Cameron Artis-Payne, but Jonathan Stewart should be back just in time. No defense has allowed more rushing touchdowns, as the Saints have allowed multiple rushing touchdowns in three of four games this season. ... Speaking of allowing running back rushing touchdowns, the Texans have allowed one in four of five weeks this season. I like Frank Gore to overcome the Colts bizarre red zone play calling and find his way in. ... When they fire the guy before you for not running the ball enough, you can be sure that new Ravens offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg is gonna run the ball. Expect a lot of Terrance West against the Giants, whose run defense has started to show some cracks. ... I expect the Bengals to be trailing against the Patriots, which means this is a Giovani Bernard game. ... I am not a fan of Ryan Mathews long term, but hes got the gig and a start against the Redskins, which means he should get a long look as you set your lineup.Running backs I hate in Week 6Matt Forte, Jets: The Cardinals have had extra time to prepare for a home game against a running back who is in a time-share and who has had 17.4 percent of his carries fail to make it past the line of scrimmage. Arizona is fourth in number of rushes that have ended at the line of scrimmage or behind it. The Bilal Powell thing is for reals, yall. Forte is only a low-end RB2 this week.Isaiah Crowell, Browns: Playing smashmouth, ball-control offense, the Titans rank fourth in time of possession this season, keeping the ball away from opponents. Theyve allowed just two rushing touchdowns all season and the Browns just lost LG Joel Bitonio (currently the ninth-best run-blocking guard, per Pro Football Focus) to a foot sprain. Crowell ranks in the bottom 10 in yards after contact, and has seen his workload decrease in recent weeks (53.7 percent of Cleveland rushing attempts the past three games, which is down from 68.2 percent through the first two weeks).Matt Jones, Redskins: Whether these things are related or not, you tell me. But Jones had a critical fumble last week, an issue he has dealt with in the past. This week, Jay Gruden comes out and says they need to give preseason star Robert Kelley more work. The Eagles have allowed just two rushing scores this season and are giving up just 3.9 yards per carry. In fact, Philly is being run on the fewest times per game this season (19 attempts per game). Maybe they are all related. Maybe they are all just wacky coincidences. You decide.Wide receivers I love in Week 6Kelvin Benjamin, Panthers: As the song goes, this is all about the Kelvins. Hes scored in three of the five games hes played this season. The two he didnt? Against the Vikings and the game that Cam Newton missed. Cams back and against the Saints, the 6-foot-5 Benjamin should once again be a big red zone target against the team that allows the seventh-most fantasy points to opposing wideouts. Im the only one to have him as a top-three play this week.Marvin Jones, Lions: With the Lions run game banged up this week, they are gonna have to throw, throw, throw, and when they do, theyll look to Jones, who has 100 yards and/or a score in three of the past four games. The Rams have given up 591 yards and four scores to enemy wideouts in their past three games.Brandin Cooks, Saints: See Brees, Drew. The Panthers are allowing the fourth-most yards per pass attempt and at home, in the dome, Brees main target should bust out of his slump.Julian Edelman, Patriots: A lot of owners have tweeted me or sent notes worried about Edelman. I wouldnt be.Jeremy Maclin, Chiefs: You know I like Alex Smith as a streamer (and, dammit, as a person) this week, as the Raiders have allowed more than 190 yards and a score to opposing wide receivers in four of five games this season (the lone exception being the run-heavy Titans). Maclin is currently on pace for a career-high 148 targets, and the touchdowns will come, as Andy Reid is traditionally very good out of a bye. With Jamaal Charles back to full strength, the Chiefs offense should look like weve come to expect. Oakland, New Orleans, Indy, Jacksonville, Carolina and Tampa Bay are the next six games for the Chiefs. Great matchups until Denver in Week 12, so this is your last chance to buy low.Others receiving votes: Miami is ... whats the word I am looking for ... not good (editors note: thats two words). I want as much of the Steelers as I can get this week, which means Sammie Coates keeps it going. ... Im ignoring last week and the Drew Stanton experience, so Im back on John Brown against that struggling Jets defense that has given up the second-most touchdown passes of 20-plus yards. ... You either believe in Cameron Meredith or you do not believe in Cameron Meredith. Taking over the Kevin White role and seeing a lot of burnable Davon House, Im a believer again this week. ... With Jordan Reed possible to miss the game against Philadelphia due to concussion symptoms, I like Jamison Crowder to pick up a lot of those targets over the middle. ... The wide receiver-needy should look into Kamar Aiken, as it looks like Steve Smith Sr. will miss this Sundays game and Mike Wallace will be at less than 100 percent. The Giants have given up at least 77 yards to the slot in four of five games this season.Wide receivers I hate in Week 6Travis Benjamin, Chargers: In Weeks 1-2, Benjamin caught 92.9 percent of targets and scored two touchdowns. Weeks 3-5, he caught 60 percent of targets and didnt score. Since 6-foot-5 Kelvin Benjamin had a big game in Week 1, the Broncos have allowed opposing WR1s to total just 19 catches for 206 yards and 0 TDs. Thats 4.8 catches for 51.5 yards per game (10.8 yards per catch). Considering that includes guys like T.Y. Hilton, A.J. Green, Mike Evans and Julio Jones. At 5-foot-10, hes not going over the top for a score the way Kelvin Benjamin did, so what youre hoping for here is that he gets behind the defense for one, but chances are you have better options.Alshon Jeffery, Bears: Same as last week and the week before. Until Brian Hoyer starts taking some shots deep or they scheme different ways to get Jeffery the ball, hes no more than a low-end WR2. Four different Bears (four!) have more targets than Jeffery since Hoyer took over as QB (Kevin White, Eddie Royal, Zach Miller and Cameron Meredith). The Jags have been pretty good against the deep ball this year as well, as theyve allowed the third-fewest 20-plus-yard plays this season (just 6.1 yards per attempt, also third fewest).Jeremy Kerley, 49ers: After a leaky start, the Bills defense has righted itself somewhat, giving up no passing touchdowns in the past three weeks. We also dont know what we are going to get out of Colin Kaepernick. Some reports said that some felt Christian Ponder was the best QB in practice, not Kap. People forget, before the injury, this is a guy who lost his job to Blaine Gabbert. Will Kap lock onto Kerley like Gabbert did or will he try to stretch the field some with Torrey Smith? On the road in a tough matchup, without knowing what we are going to get from the QB or his tendencies in the pass game, makes me nervous. I realize Kerley was likely your waiver pick this week, but if I have him, Im holding him out until I see more.Tight ends I love in Week 6Jimmy Graham, Seahawks: Prior to his bye week, Graham reeled off consecutive games of at least six catches and 100 yards. Thats the longest streak of those thresholds by a tight end since 2011, when it was done in three straight by ... Jimmy Graham. The Falcons have allowed at least five catches, 64 yards and a score to tight ends in four of five weeks this season.Zach Miller, Bears: Since Brian Hoyer took over, only Greg Olsen has more fantasy points. Still available in about 30 percent of leagues, Miller has become a target monster for Hoyer, especially in the red zone, with three scores in the past three weeks. Its not a great matchup with Jacksonville, but its also not a scary one, and the pure volume of looks makes him a legit low-end TE1 this week.Others receiving votes: Jesse James now has a score in three of his past four games and the Dolphins are top-10 in points allowed to opposing tight ends. As you may have heard, you cant teach 6-foot-7. ... So far, he hasnt been existent, but with no Jared Cook and the Cowboys coughing up the fourth-most fantasy points to opposing tight ends (at least 70 yards to tight ends in four straight), I could see Richard Rodgers doing some damage in a TE2 kind of way.Tight ends I hate in Week 6Redskins tight ends: I am writing this assuming that Jordan Reed is not going to play. If Reed goes, you obviously have to start him, but assuming hes out, dont get cute with Vernon Davis or Niles Paul. Very different players, obviously, and this isnt a great matchup as the Eagles have allowed the fewest fantasy points to opposing tight ends, including zero touchdowns. Now, they havent really faced anyone yet, but still. The fact remains this is a bad matchup, especially for players who dont have the skill set that Reed does.Dennis Pitta, Ravens: Pitta has not been used very much in the red zone so far (zero touchdowns this year), and the Giants have held the opposing tight end to five or fewer points in three of the past four games. Those three were against the Saints, Redskins and Packers. Pretty good offenses, no? Maybe he gets some more PPR love because Steve Smith Sr. is likely out, but hard to see him as a top-10 play.Defenses I love in Week 6Cardinals D/ST: My No. 1 defense this week, Arizona gets extra time to prep for a home game in prime time against Fitzmagic and a Jets team that has ... well, lets say theyve been challenged recently in the turnover department.Bills D/ST: Quietly the third-best fantasy defense in football, they are still available in about 17 percent of ESPN leagues. After a quiet few first weeks, theyve scored 49 points in the past three games, the same number as the Vikings D/ST during that stretch. While Colin Kaepernicks mobility will make it harder to tackle him for a sack, expect him to be pressured into making mistakes, as the Bills do rank fourth in sacks and the 49ers have been shuffling their offensive line.Others receiving votes: The fewest fantasy points any defense has scored against the Rams this season is 7, so the Lions at home make for a bye-week filler possibility. ... The Dolphins look like a hot mess recently and have given up 27 points to opposing defenses the past two weeks. The Steelers are up next and, having righted the ship after the loss to Philly, seem primed to have a strong effort against Miami.Defenses I hate in Week 6Panthers D/ST: Not only are you not starting them against the Saints (only once has a defense scored more than six points against New Orleans this season), I have no issue with you dropping them. Tough, I know, because they were the third team taken overall among defenses, but when they can get only three points at home against an erratic Jameis Winston and a third-string running back ... After the Saints, they have a bye and then are home to Arizona, which could go either way. Theres a chance youre not thinking about them until Week 9 at Los Angeles. Welcome to dumpsville, Carolina. Population: you.Bengals D/ST: Podcast fans know how I feel about this team, but after seeing the complete lack of effort against the Cowboys last week, youre nuts if you want to roll the dice with them on the road against New England. Anythings possible ... we saw the Bengals shut down Tom Brady and the Patriots a few years ago, but that seems like a long time ago and that was before the Gronk You tour kicked in.

NEW YORK -- So is this what it was like to watch Christy Mathewson work his magic in the chill of October? Or Carl Hubbell? Or Grover Cleveland Alexander?Is this what it looks like when a man is turning himself into a legend before our eyes, one dominating shutout inning at a time, October after October after October?All we have is the record books to tell us what the old-time legends looked like. But luckily, we have our very own eyeballs to tell us what Madison Bumgarner looks like when October arrives, and seasons and legacies are on the line. And once again Wednesday night, he headed for the mound in a winner-take-all postseason baseball game -- and rewrote baseball history for about the 17th time.I dont think we think about the history of it all, said his shortstop, Brandon Crawford, on another epic MadBum October evening. Weve almost come to expect it.Hey, at this point, hasnt everyone? The San Francisco Giants are alive and breathing today, heading for Chicago to take on the Cubs, because of course they are -- and because it all looked verrrry familiar.They live on thanks to another four-hit Madison Bumgarner shutout special, a storybook swing of the bat by an instant folk hero named Conor Gillaspie and a 3-0 win over the New York Mets in a National League wild-card game that wont soon be forgotten.And neither, obviously, will the winning pitcher. Because hes about as special as it gets.Its supposed to be harder to impose your will on these October baseball games than Madison Bumgarner makes it look. But when the champagne bottles had all been emptied late Wednesday evening, here was just the latest compendium of what this man has been able to accomplish when the only thing riding on these games is pretty much everything:? He has now spent 23 innings on the mound in winner-take-all baseball games. And he has hung a zero on the scoreboard in all 23 of them. Yep, that would be a record.? He has thrown complete-game shutouts in two of those games -- the 2014 wild-card game and this one. Ready for the complete list of all pitchers in history who have thrown multiple shutouts in winner-take-all postseason games? Here it comes: There is Madison Bumgarner. ... And, well, thats it.? Bumgarner has now made 13 postseason starts in his career. He forgot to allow a run in six of them. You should know that only one other pitcher in history has made six scoreless postseason starts over the course of his career. And that was Tom Glavine. Who made nearly three times as many starts (35) as Bumgarner has made.Well sprinkle in more of these astonishing tidbits as we go along. But first, take a moment to let all that sink in, because nobody should take any of this for granted -- even though his teammates, at this point, are working hard to make him think they are.He just went out there and did what everybody expected, his first baseman, Brandon Belt, deadpanned afterward. Its almost boring. He really needs to do something a little different next time. Id like to see him hit a home run or something. How about hitting a home run in a playoff game. Heck, anybody can do it in a regular-season game.Well, as a matter of fact, Bumgarner almost did that Wednesday, too. In the third inning of this game, he stepped in there to face fire-spitting Mets ace Noah Syndergaard -- a man who had just finished striking out the previous four hitters hed faced -- and crushed the second-hardest-hit ball Syndergaard allowed all night. He just made the mistake of hitting it to deep left-center field, where home runs at Citi Field go to die.He got back to the dugout after that one, and he was mad, said his buddy, Jake Peavy. He said, Man, I hit that good.But when we think back on MadBums mano a mano with Syndergaard, it wont be either ones hitting that we remember. It will be their monumental reenactment of the last postseason elimination game in which both starting pitchers spun at least seven shutout innings: Jack Morris versus John Smoltz, in the iconic seventh game of the 1991 World Series.Not that either Bumgarner or Syndergaard has any recollection of that game -- since Bumgarner was 2 years old at the time and Syndergaard had yet to experience his rookie year on Planet Earth. But thats what this game had the feel of for those of us who did remember it, as the donuts kept mounting on the board, one after another.You know, we talk a lot in [Giants] history about the famous game with Juan Marichal and Warren Spahn, said Giants general manager Bobby Evans, conjuring up the memory of a fabled 16-inning 1-0 game between those two Hall of Famers in 1963. Penny Hardaway Jersey. It ended on a Willie Mays walk-off home run in the bottom of the 16th -- off Spahn, of course.I used to sit in the room when I first got here and hear the stories of that game, Evans went on. And thats what this one felt like to me -- what [longtime Giants executives] Dick Tidrow and Jack Hiatt used to describe about that Juan Marichal and Warren Spahn game.Sure, that works, too. Except for the fact that there was no chance of these two starters going 16, obviously. Unless, that is, that Bumgarner planned on doing that. And you couldnt put it past him at this point. But regardless, his team needed every ounce of brilliance he had in him on this night -- because Syndergaard was his usual electric self, firing seven overpowering innings of two-hit, 10-strikeout baseball.Syndergaard was unbelievable, said Buster Posey. But there was such a calmness in our dugout. And I think its safe to say Bum deserves a lot of credit for that.Yeah, that seems safe, all right. Imagine what its like for these men to play behind this guy after all the miracles theyve seen him perform, after all the history theyve seen him make, after all the rings he has put on their fingers. To take the field on a game of this magnitude, knowing Bumgarner is on the mound, is just a feeling of total confidence, Belt said. It doesnt get any better than that. Its just fun.But for these even-year Giants, the best part of that fun is in complementing the brilliance of their ace with an almost undefinable knack for finding ways to win October classics like this one. So say hello to Conor Gillaspie, a man who was playing in this game only because (A) the Giants dealt away their third baseman, Matt Duffy, at the trading deadline, (B) the guy who replaced him, Eduardo Nunez, wasnt healthy enough to make the postseason roster and (C) Travis Ishikawa and Willie Mays werent in uniform anymore.So of course Gillaspie hammered a three-run, ninth-inning home run off a man who had allowed exactly one home run all year (Mets closer Jeurys Familia). And of course, he roared around the bases, pumping both fists, as the oxygen seemed to drain out of Citi Field. And of course, when that joyous trot was over, Madison Bumgarner looked at him and said: Conor, I appreciate the hell out of that.Asked afterward about that classically polite MadBum greeting, and if it was true hed really told the hero du jour he appreciated that mighty blast, Bumgarner said, in that low-key way of his: Im sure everybody does.OK, try to argue with that, huh? But its also true that when the starting pitcher never gives up a run, he makes all those unlikely heroes possible. And thats the specialty of Madison Bumgarners house.He has now pitched in eight postseason road games. The Giants have won all eight of them. He has worked 53? innings in those eight games. The opposition has scored a total of three earned runs. And he has faced 24 hitters with runners in scoring position in those postseason road games. The next hit he allows will be his first. Yeah, really.But dont ask him to reveal the secrets of how he does these impossible things he does. When he sat on the podium Wednesday night, next to his new best friend, Gillaspie, and was asked if he could explain his ability to conquer October, Madison Bumgarner just shrugged and said: I wish I had an answer for you. I dont.Fortunately, though, Conor Gillaspie had one.Hes tough, Gillaspie said. Thats why. Hes a competitive, competitive guy at everything he does. And it shows -- not just in baseball but anything in life.Well, well probably never know what its like to face Madison Bumgarner on a golf course, or in fantasy football, or even in a fishing tournament. So well just have to base our conclusions on that ongoing mini-series, MadBum Versus October. But the one thing weve noticed about that series is that every episode seems to turn out the same as the one before, and the one before that.Its the same old postseason Bum, said Belt. In the postseason, theres just nobody better.
