Like many of you, I am just starting to get the hang of the daily game, having been a life-long full season player. It doesn’t take long to learn that you have to hit on pitchers and the rock solid starters do not always produce. Just look at Clayton Kershaw and Madison Bumgarner on Saturday night.
Jacob deGrom ($6900) and Scott Kazmir ($5000) look like the pitchers with the most favorable match-ups to start the week. deGrom was average against a good Nationals team and now draws the weak-hitting Phillies lineup. Kazmir dazzled in his season opener against Texas and now sees the high-strikeout Houston Astros. While I do not expect Kazmir to match the 21 points he posted in the opener, another solid start is expected.
Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.
