    Interesting to read about your miserable Sunday, Mark. I was ahead on my match-up going into Sunday and feared the worst when I checked the scores the next morning, but somehow I had added to my advantage rather than lost it. Was one of those occasions where I wouldn’t have minded my fantasy team taking a hit, with K-Rod getting hit around for the second straight day by my A’s, but fortunately things turned out okay in reality and fantasy!
