Of the four lineups I entered Friday, only one cashed, and it doesn’t count toward my bankroll because it was an industry free-roll. The two for which I paid I lost, costing me another $15 and leaving me with $952.
So I lost $2 last night to put my bankroll at $967. All of my players put up positive totals, and my pitcher (Lance Lynn) got a win, but zero home runs kept me a couple points out of the money.
I threw this lineup together way too quickly – I think I’m getting addicted to the action. This is dumb because I have so much season-long stuff for which to root anyway, but I’m doing it.
Here’s my lineup in a $2 tournament:
You didn’t think I would blow through my entire bankroll in $2 and $5 increments without winning at least once, did you? Be honest, though, you were kind of rooting for that. I know I would be if it were someone else’s blog. Imagine the desperation as the bankroll got below $500 without a single win!
Let’s keep it in perspective, though. I won $20 on my two $2 entries, netting me a profit of $16. That puts my bankroll at $969.
