    OUCH!!! as I share the pain of Charlie Morton owners who were tricked into playing him by the DFS community. I always say to go with your gut as I got Robbie Ray at 6% in a single entry tournament. Even though he gave up some runs, he got you a ton of strikeouts. Can’t say the same for Morton who did worse than 0 DK points… again I feel your pain. The Angels broke out and the variance of baseball was on full display. I think we can avoid picking on the Angels because they have too much talent and we shouldn’t be distracted because of a mini slump. Alright… enough with the therapy, I will be dropping 14,000 on DK for Kershaw today because he will pitch a complete game shutout on 90 pitches to go with a gazillion strikeouts… it’s too easy! I like him in a pairing with Chacin ($4,900) in order to get some decent bats. No I won’t be playing a bunch of dumpster players below $3,000… it’s not that serious. I’m sure you guys can’t wait to remove last night’s disaster from your memory… I’m here for you!!!

    Last night was terrible. Cashed on GPP’s surprisingly when I thought it was more of a cash game slate for me. But still over did it on cash and ended up down for the night.
