Sunday 20th Aug 2017

Congrats to you if you had Michael Pineda (26 points), Danny Salazar (21 points), or Garrett Richards (19.66 points) yesterday. But that was yesterday and none of that matters for Monday at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Only nine MLB games are on the slate for Monday. We are going to look at Gerrit Cole ($8700) against the low-scoring Phillies as the most obvious pitching choice. None of the pitchers in the next wave really thrill me, so the choice is going to be Alex Colome ($4000). Colome has shown well in his first two starts this season at Boston and at Baltimore and is a high-strikeout pitcher.

Going with Colome will allow some room for higher-priced offensive players including the red-hot Bryce Harper ($5600) and Andrew McCutchen ($4800). I know that McCutchen has underperformed so far this season, but he is showing signs of a hitting run. 

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.

Glad I opted to stick with Scherzer over Colome, at least so far.

Quoting alleyoops:
Paying up for pitchers looks like the way to go, with so many good hitting options.

p - greinke, scherzer top 2, considered Colome, but didn't see enough additional value to be had in hitting to justify the drop from Scherzer
c - grandal vs Koehler
1b - morales vs Lewis
2b - pedroia vs Kazmir
3b - longoria vs Sabathia
ss - rollins vs Koehler
of - pederson vs Koehler
of - reddick vs Porcello
of - paredes vs Estrada


Colome lineup would be this:

p- greinke, colome
c - vogt vs
1b - agonzalez vs Koehler
2b - travis vs jimenez
3b - longoria vs Sabathia
ss - rollins vs Koehler
of - pederson vs Koehler
of - reddick vs Porcello
of - harper vs Collmenter

Vogt, AGonzalez, Travis and Harper are nice hitting upgrades, but I'd rather take the safer points with Scherzer over Colome. Might swap to this lineup in the BBHQ GPP.

Weather report looks sketchy in Cincy, so some risk there.

Agree with Greinke if you don't mind paying up, otherwise for the bargain hunters Mike Leake(4700), and Marc's choice of Alex Colome(4000) are worth a look. They have to let Colome throw more than 5 innings eventually, don't they? I like the matchups for Chris Davis and Evan Longoria as well.

Shark hasn't had an easy time v anybody lately and home field is huge for pitchers.

OTOH, this has been a bass ackwards year for pitching in general.

thought about him. i kinda like Grienke no matter what, but thought Jeff might have an easier time v the Brewers.

Haven't checked prices but based on pure matchup, I like Greinke tonight.

I like Cole too, and Samardjiza, plus Buccos hitters against Williams and Toronto hitters against Ubaldo.
