P Gio Gonzalez SDP@WAS $8,600 - There are some interesting cheap options but I don't want to fall short with my pitcher so I'll go with a high priced home option facing a weak opponent. I'm guessing Gio will be a popular choice so I will have to pick a couple of hitters I expect no one else will. Well, very few anyway.
C Wilson Ramos SDP@WAS $2,500 - I'll need to make sure Ramos is in the lineup but since it's an early game, the info will be available on DFSEdge (you may recognize one of the writers over there). If Ramos is sitting this one out, I'll pick whichever Reds' catcher is playing since they are facing Aaron Harang and cost $100 less so they will both fit under the cap.
1B Joey Votto SEA@ CIN $4,100 - LHB versus RHP at home in a great park. And the RHP is Harang!
3B Pablo Sandoval LOS@SFG $2,400 - This is trying to take advantage of Panda's reduced price as he's been struggling since he returned from injury. I'm hoping his scuffles keep others away while he snaps out of his funk. Plus, we fat guys stick together.
SS Josh Rutledge COL@ARI $2,600 - Rutledge is my biggest risk since there is no guarantee he'll play and the game is a late one so the rosters will lock before the lineups are announced. I'm hoping a solid effort last night earns him consecutive starts. The opposing hurler is rookie Tyler Skaggs, so I'll take my chances.
OF Mike Trout BOS@LAA $5,500 - This one hurts since Trout will be facing my hometown squad that is becoming increasingly likable again, but 200K is 200K and I like Trout's chances against Felix Doubront. Plus, I don't expect that many will want to fit in the highest priced player in the outfield.
That's my starting nine - what say you?
