Wednesday 18th Oct 2017


Those in the know say that a team in the money by June 1 has historically an 85% chance to be among the winners by the end of the season. Let’s then celebrate or, alternatively, drown in sorrows by playing FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Either way, let’s have some fun. Today’s games offer both expensive pitchers, e.g. Max Scherzer ($9400) and Johnny Cueto ($8900), and inexpensive ones in Chad Bettis ($4600) and Mike Wright ($4700). I like to put my money on the pitching side and Max Scherzer, no matter the cost, should not be ignored. Considering rumors of Johnny Cueto’s potential elbow injury and the recent stellar outings by Bettis, my first choice for pitchers today is an atypical expensive/inexpensive combo of Scherzer/Bettis.

This selection leaves us more money for the batters than what we usually have. Let’s spend it on Nelson Cruz ($6100). Speaking of going against C.C. Sabathia in Seattle, Mike Zunino ($2900) is a low cost gamble.

Then there are those Detroit Tigers, always dangerous at home and going against the inconsistent Kendall Graveman. Detroit players are generally not cheap, but the choice of Bettis is giving us some wiggle room. I think that it is time to splurge on Miguel Cabrera ($6000).

Syndergaard and Lynn here...

Scherzer and Lynn for me.

Hence I am going with Noah Syndergaard, slightly more expensive than Bettis, but not too much more.

Warning: Chad Bettis may not start game 2 for Colorado. The Rockies may call up Dale Hale instead
