Pick explanations will be coming at 12:15 pm EST today, but I wanted to get my lineups out before noon. Enjoy!I didn’t get a chance to post my lineup yesterday, but I did enter a contest and came away with a third-place victory on the strength of my team’s 46.25 points. Madison Bumgarner scored 17, Yasiel Puig had 11.5, Manny Machado was good for 7.5, and Michael Bourn got in on the action with 6.5Today I’m entering a late-game contest because I didn’t want to deal with the differing start times of an evenly divided slate of games. As always, leave your thoughts, comments, and strategies in the comments section below! Do you enter a lot of late-game or early-game contests to avoid the gap in start times? Let me know!Also, if you haven’t take the Week 12 Fantasy Survey, then it’s time you took 30 seconds to do it. It could save someone’s fantasy season. At the very least, it gives Adam something to analyze this weekend!Season ResultsWagered: $670 | Profit: $0.50 | ROI: 0.1% | Avg.
