    A couple of matched sets of first and second fiddles there. Interesting approach. How about Renshaw? I'd almost suggest getting Roche, too, but I guess neither of us believe Gadret is really riding for him.

    You will all RUE THE DAY you went up against Second Mice!

    When all my guys get sick/crash out/get popped for doping, you can point and laugh.

    How can multiple mice all be second? And don't they fight over the cheese, over the dead body of their fearless leader? Perhaps like Renshaw and Goss will be doing?

    Contador @ 30 velobuck$ is crushing me. Oh, so many permutations here, and as much as I like the thorough scoring system I'm really starting to hate this 2 GC / 2 climbers demand.

    OK, I'm DONE. Really. I'm not going to perseverate over this a few more times later today. Really. I'm not. Self - listen to that.

    Vexing choices from that infernal demand of George's to structure 2 GCs and 2 climbers. Second Mice, I may rue the day but I'm going with a bunch of second bananas to get myself under the salary cap. No grade A choice Spanish bistec for team "Where's the Beef?", almost sacrilege.

    Oh well, see you all at the start tomorrow, and let the games commence!

    +1 on not sacrificing the whole team for him.

    Hey, if I get the Lantern rouge again, at least I'm consistent.

    Now that the kimonos are open, I spot checked a few of the familiar teams from prior tours. I was pretty sure L'Enfer would have to have Gilbert (damn, I was right), but am vexed that he made it onto Scansorial's team too. At least Philippe will be my ace in the hole to put a dig into the Mudcats, all assuming my sans Contador approach (and tribute to the grand lady of cheesy advertising) survives the first day in the Pyrenees. We shall see..... No doubt new foes and fellows will arise in the swirl of madness.

    I think Rojas will turn out to be the best 6 pts in the game, but I ran out of square holes for his peg.

    Really counting on Cadel to have a hissy fit and lose it one of these days. Hincapie is good for him, but as sage as he is George is no Phil Jackson Zen jedi so I'm calculating it won't be enough. Plus I think the meds Cadel needs are on the banned substances list.

    Eddie, looking good for that plan of yours.

    Fell back to 10th today, grabbed Gilbert on the Versus Fantasy but couldn't find a way to make him in my team on this one. Wish I had now! Hopefully I can make it up later on!

    Alberto CONTADOR [30]
    Tony MARTIN [10]
    David MONCOUTIÉ [10]
    Damiano CUNEGO [12]
    Andre GREIPEL [8]
    Philippe GILBERT [8]
    Thomas VOECKLER [6]
    Chris HORNER [6]
    Francisco VENTOSO [6]

    I still like Contador's chances to win, but he's not going to score as many points as I thought now that he'll be low on GC for a week or two.

    I decided against Cav and went for the Greipel/Ventoso combo. I wasn't confident that Cav would try 100% for green, and hopefully today's intermediate sprint was a sign of things to come. If Cav wins 5 stages it might not matter, though.

    The Martin pick was more or less forced by the structure of the game. It would be nice if HTC wins the TTT and he has yellow for a couple days. Some people are seeing top 10 for him, but I don't see it at all.

    Moncoutie was my stab at the KOM. Cunego and Voeckler are aggressive guys and potential stage winners. Gilbert was a no-brainer at 8 points and Horner seemed like a good value at 6 points.

    Added Slowstep to the league. I actually made the team a while ago, but I kept forgetting to log in and add myself.

    I made a shadow team of the guys I had an iteration of tinkering ago, before my last "upgrade." That team scored 425 today and would be in 1st spot in our BF league.

    D'oh!

    I only did that for myself because I enjoy suffering. They shall remain unjoined here, at least until I forfeit my last shreds of integrity and honor.

    I'm hoping I'm going to be better off for the long run with the horse I rode in on into 11th place (at the moment), but we shall see. Placing may get worse before (if ever) it get better, particularly with these pesky high scoring late joins.

    I move to prohibit anyone in front of me from signing in late.

    Being within the top 10 on the first day isn't too shabby. I feel better about refusing to sacrifice so much for Contador, it was a gamble but it looks like it may pay off. I'm not sure he can come back from such a deficit especially considering his teams weakness in the TTT. I'm hearing he might lose as much as another 30 seconds to his competitors on BMC, Leo, and Rshack. It'll only be the end of stage two and he could be behind 5 or 6 of his biggest GC competitors by about 2 minutes.

    Now I just need Cadal to fall apart (safely of course).

    Eisel's crash killed me. Now Tony Martin is going to get dropped on the climbs and he'll be a waste of 10 points. The final TT will be too little too late.

    Stayed in 13th even though I had a decent stage. 7-13 is super close though, should be an interesting next couple weeks.
