*** Vuelta Spoiler ***

Why is Evans getting his butt kicked so thoroughly? He was 42 seconds down at 12 KM and is now 1:20+ down at 27 Km, but he's not just getting beat by 1 guy. 9 guys are beating him at 27 km. Granted a lot can happen over the next 25 km, but...

Ummm because it's a downhill course with a tailwind?

I'd say Denny Menchov and Stijn Devolder (my pick for the overall) are the only two of the main GC guys who have a chance of winning today.

Edit: Botto, I was trying to answer his question, not yours. But yeah...there ARE reasons for these things, which are pretty obvious.

My former boss was named Dennis, we called him Denny. Old habit, more than anything.

David Wright just hit a 2 run HR for the Mets. Who cares about the Vuelta? That race sounds like some lame Velveta Cheese variety anyway.

During the playoffs I double up on the Pepto Bismol and Rolaids. 'Boring' is not the problem. Think 'Nervous Breakdown' and you're closer.

And of course the Yankees Suck and Let's Go Mets. That can never be overstated.
