Tuesday 27th Jun 2017

For Tuesday, you can find me in my regular spot - the FantasyScore Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $225 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Hurry if you want to join as the Mastersball contests have been quickly filling up each day.

Here are a few of my picks for today's contest.

As much as I am tempted to take Stephen Strasburg at home against Miami, his $7700 price is a bit too rich for my blood. A better value pick at $1000 less may be the Yankees’ Michael Pineda against Toronto. The oft-injured righty is off to a fine start with 32 strikeouts against just two walks this season. Versus the Jays, Pineda has a decent career ERA of 3.93 in six starts.

The Cardinals and Cubs had a 10-9 slugfest on Monday night with three more games coming. One of the unsung leaders of the MLB-best 19-6 St. Louis club is Matt Holliday at $4300. The outfielder has reached base in every game in which he has played this season, with a .462 OBP that is first in the National League. He draws Kyle Hendricks at home Tuesday night, against whom he is 4-for-9 with two long balls and four RBI.

Holliday’s teammate Jhonny Peralta is quietly hitting .305 through the first month with 12 RBI in 25 games. My $3500 shortstop pick is 3-for-8 in his career against the struggling Hendricks (5.23 ERA).

Play along with us here.

If Justin Upton doesn't hit a HR, I'll take down the FanDuel/NFBC contest for a free 2016 Main Even entry.

Ack - forgot to hit save when changing to this lineup, which would have cashed easily. Instead made some late changes to Angels and Padres from the rainout game, and probably won't cash.

Using Strasburg could cost me a couple hundred jelly beans on Fantasy Aces.

Using Miller in the NFBC contest along with Mookie and Freeman. Looks like a late-night sweat is in store, with a free NFBC Main Event riding on Lawr's buddy -- Erick Aybar.

Weather in Denver iffy again, but better than last night. Still, with so many other good hitter options available, avoiding that contest.

Opted to go with lesser SPs and better hitters, as I don't see Greinke and Strasburg as strong plays (Greinke on the road, Strasburg not himself yet).

p - Miller, Smyly
c - vogt vs May
1b - agonzalez vs Garza
2b - altuve vs Rodriguez
3b - carpenter vs Hendricks
ss - mgonzalez vs Rodriguez
of - springer vs Rodriguez
of - harper vs latos
of - pederson vs garza
