FScore-160x320Happy Saturday, where there is a full slate of games, some top pitchers, and potential weather issues only in St, Louis as we play out the FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Chris Sale ($9400), the hot Jake Arrieta ($9300) and Madison Bumgarner ($9300) lead the financial charge of top arms, but I am going with Cole Hamels ($8300) as my top guy as he is facing the Cubs, who are fairly hapless against Southpaws (.229 average, .285 OBP, and a 21.7% whiff rate). I am pairing Hamels (who will want a good start as the trade deadline approaches) with Ian Kennedy ($5300), going against the Fish (who are equally inept versus right-handers with a .229 average, .275 OBP, and 19.8 whiff rate) at Petco.

As for hitters, it is hard to not stack some of the slugging Jays against J.A. Happ, so I am with Edwin Encarnacion ($5400) and Jose Reyes ($4300) and Russell Martin ($4200).

Note too that yesterday I jumped the gun on the potential Tommy Milone/CC Sabathia slugfest, and think playing solid right-handed hitters on either side of the bench could prove to be a fine play.

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore and you can follow me @lawrmichaels.
