Check out USA Today FantasyScore Baseball, league MastersBall 50/50 GPP. Three hours before the first game, there are 10 open slots. Hurry up.

    My roster:

P        Madison Bumgarner    SF        $8,400        @ ARI            10:10PM ET

P        Max Scherzer            WSH       $8,300        vs NYM          4:05PM ET

C        Caleb Joseph            BAL        $2,200        @ TB              3:10PM ET

1B      Adam Lind                MIL        $3,800        vs COL           2:10PM ET

2B      Jace Peterson           ATL         $2,000        @ MIA           4:10PM ET

3B      Nolan Arenado        COL         $5,900        @ MIL            2:10PM ET

SS      Jhonny Peralta         STL         $3,900        @ CHC           8:05PM ET

OF     Ryan Braun              MIL         $5,900        vs COL           2:10PM ET

OF     Khris Davis               MIL        $3,800        vs COL           2:10PM ET

OF     Hanley Ramirez      BOS         $5,600        @ PHI             3:05PM ET

 

    Strategy:

  1. Take 2 top pitchers who have a good chance to win
  2. Do not pay for catchers and infielders, typically weak positions; would rather pay for outfield.
  3. Get hitters who face weak pitchers, not an easy thing to do since on day one most teams play their top starters. Colorado has Kyle Kendrick, not an elite hurler. Hence three Brewers on my team.
  4. See if there is an unheralded guy who is a full-timer but new, hence inexpensive. Found Jace Peterson. I am curious about his performance.

 

Will it work? The good news is that I do not have to wait for the season to end to find out. That’s the beauty of daily leagues.

Incidentally, this was my first experience with USA Today FantasyScore. I found the site easy to navigate and the roster creation intuitive.
