As you all know, pitching is my favorite part of fantasy baseball and baseball in general.  It’s as overpoweringly addictive to me as gasoline is to the leather-clad gangs in The Road Warrior.  Now I most certainly don’t have any ass-less chaps, but I was on the edge of my seat watching some of thee performances, I’m not gonna lie mainly Chris Sale last night, just because he’s on many of my teams and I was on vacation over the weekend…
