Monday Fantasy Roundup

Friday's Roundup was a smashing success, leading to a 4-0 sweep, and some happy fantasy gamers. After taking the weekend to catch our collective breath, it's time to dive back in and hope the fantasy fun leads to more sweet, sweet money. Today's game card has a crazy number of young pitchers going against new competition, but we'll do our best to point out some trends.

NL
Livan Hernandez
- It's not often I'd put "It shall be" Livan on this list, but he's 2-0 against the Nats this year, with an ERA of 0.56. He has allowed baserunners, but always seemed to come through with a big pitch. Livan's been struggling, but the Nats are on a 4-game losing streak, so he's catching them at a good time.
Austin Kearns - A career .407 hitter against Livan Hernandez, you'd figure the Nats would give Kearns (and his 2 homers, 10RBI versus Livan) a chance to hit tonight.
Nyjer Morgan and Christian Guzman - Two more Nats that have decent averages against Hernandez, but these two have only 2 combined RBI and no runs scored. Deploy if you want a few singles in your fantasy lineup tonight.
Albert Pujols - 6-for-9 against Moehler...bring your mitt if you're sitting in Minute Maid's short porch in left.
