Smooth Moves by Rico's Roughnecks

  • Rico's Roughnecks scored massive brownie points with the Toyota Hall of Fame this week. Too bad brownie points don't count as real points. Not that you need help.

  • After a season-low 4.00 points against a projected 8.96, Dan Bailey has scored below his projection in three straight games.
