It is indeed Memorial Day Weekend which marks the first milepost in season-long Fantasy Baseball leagues, but at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, we will know a winner tonight.
There is a full complement of games, and the deadline to sign up is the 1:05 EST start time with the weather factoring, it seems, only on the Giants/Rockies contest where there is a chance of rain.
There are indeed a chunk of great pitching choices out there today but I am sticking with Shelby Miller ($8100), who almost tossed a no-no last Sunday against the Brew Crew and who has indeed been dominant this season. I am also sticking with Stephen Strasburg ($7700), who has a tough opponent in Cole Hamels, but not so tough a team in the punchless Phils.
I have been really focusing on righty/lefty matchups for hitters over the past few weeks, exploiting the combination of that platoon with who is apparently facing the arm that allows the most baserunners.
Remember, you can take me and the other Mastersballers on at FantasyScore
