You know those guys - every league has at least one or two - who will drop half their pitching staff on Saturday night and pick up practically any pitcher scheduled to start on Sunday just so they can assure victory in the strikeouts and wins categories in head-to-head fantasy leagues?
No offense if you are one of those guys, I'm only mentioning this to remind everyone that the baseball gods notice this sort of thing.
Case in point: Andrew Miller, the Florida Marlins starter against the Dodgers today.
I'm watching the game overseas via the American Forces Network - and while I normally would be aggravated about a 7-1 score in the second inning (I prefer to watch the 2-1 type ball games), I'm laughing my butt off watching the Marlins vs. Dodgers tonight.
Well, as it turns out, there is karma in fantasy baseball.
I'm going to lose my head-to-head match-up this week, mainly because my opponent used 25 different pitchers to amass a staggering number of wins and strikeouts (the other categories we pretty much split), but it won't be as bad as it could have been because one of the guys he picked up for today was Andrew Miller.
His line against the Dodgers: 1.2 IP, 5 H, 7 ER, 5 BB, 3K.
I can't do anything about losing the wins or strikeouts category - but he just handed me the ERA and WHIP.
