Game Cast API

Today I finished up the basic game cast api that is used when you click on the game cast for a matchup. The thing I care most about here is the percentComplete field for each event because I think taht will definitely help with the matchup win probability field. I can query that for each player my using the players team id and cross referencing which event that competetitor is in and see the percent complete.

More info to come on how we'll utilize percentComplete. But essentially, if we know the total live projection for a team, and the initial total variance, which we do from the api calls, we should be able to develop decent probabilities by scaling the variance down as the game time decreases.
