JT’S MONDAY BRUNCH

SCOTTIE SCHEFFLER’S YEAR The world’s #1 ranked golfer continued his dominance by posting an almost wire-to-wire win at Augusta National to claim the vaunted Green Jacket. In a tournament that mostly lacked excitement due to Scheffler’s dominance, we at least had those sick final shots by Rory McIlroy and Collin Morikawa and Rory’s sprint to second place to get the blood pumping late on Sunday afternoon. Tiger Woods returned to competition for the first time since his most recent self-induced, off the course drama to impressively make the cut, though he did finish well back of the leaderboard. The windy, bleak conditions did not keep the Run Pure Community down, though, as members clubcamcole took down 2nd in the DraftKings’ milly maker for $200,000 and cjacobs986 topped the FanDuel PGA Monster for $100,000 – congrats!

 

DISHARMONY IN LOS ANGELES As news reports emerged last night that Frank Vogel had coached his last game for the Los Angeles Lakers, Vogel commented that he “hasn’t been told shit.” Well, ok, Big Frank! Sure, this seems cold for the Lakers to leak reports of Vogel’s firing prior to speaking with him, but this is a big boy world and really what else do you expect from LeBron James and this organization? Look, love him or hate him, Vogel was doomed to failure with this roster of NBA has-beens. While it seems like he didn’t help himself by starting guys like Avery Bradley and Trevor Ariza over Malik Monk and some other younger Lakers for most of the season, we really don’t know if these were his decisions to make. Regardless, it looks like it’ll take a long rebuild in Los Angeles given the state of that roster.

MLB NEWS AND NOTES Baseball returned to full stadiums and an oddly fan and DFS-friendly schedule. If you were so inclined you could have watched baseball all day and night every day since Opening Day, and I know many of you did just that. My biggest takeaway so far is that there are going to be some really, really bad teams this season – teams that aren’t even trying to convince people they want to compete. That’ll create an advantage for us some nights that we’ll talk a little bit more about in Episode 2 of the “Sweet Spot” pod coming out later this week.

THE RPS MONEY TREE I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention and congratulate RPS member themann11 for his massive $1,000,000 win in NBA DFS. He popped for $100,000 a few weeks ago and joined the milly maker club this past week – what an amazing run! And speaking of amazing runs, RPS’ Big Johnny Surabian won another $100,000 on the second day of the MLB season. Congrats to you both and, if you haven’t joined RPS yet, like….why?
