    Yikes!!! Mother Nature was raining on our parade yesterday but I managed to win some money with a Phillies stack on DK. I feel bad for people who stacked the Angels or played Ohtani. It wasn’t a fair fight when that game was postponed after lock with no one to swap with. The other rainouts increased ownership which destroyed some of my contrarian plays but the Phillies were low owned enough to make a difference (Altherr with the bomb). I saw guys like Kinsler at 38% owned which is a substantial number in tournaments. I was able to avoid the land mines but I almost lost some of my entry fees. No rain today though…

    Yesterday was brutal for DFS. MLB and nascar got destroyed by the weather. Today doesn’t look any better in the East coast area.
