Holy moly, it is opening day all over again. Just take a look at the starting pitchers scheduled for Friday. We have Clayton Kershaw ($9900) going against Gerrit Cole ($9600). Jacob deGrom ($9500), Jose Fernandez ($9600), Sonny Gray ($9500), Dallas Keuchel ($9200) and Cole Hamels ($8600). If those did not provide enough options, we also have next-tier pitchers in Lance Lynn ($8200), Jordan Zimmermann ($8000), Hisashi Iwakuma ($6900) and Andrew Heaney ($7100).
I am going to try to build a lineup around deGrom and Fernandez. If I need to drop down, I am closely looking at Heaney.
Randal Grichuk ($4500) at Milwaukee against Kyle Lohse and Paul Goldschmidt ($6500) at home against Raisel Iglesias lead the hit parade. A guy I have been watching closely as of late is Phillies outfielder Domonic Brown ($2300). Brown has four multi-hit games with three home runs and 13 RBI in his past ten games. He faces James Shields, who has allowed 21 home runs on the season. Brown provides a cheap bat that will be necessary if you plan to roster two of the stud starting pitchers. Diamondbacks catcher Welington Castillo ($2000) continues to be insanely inexpensive and continues to smack home runs (six in his past ten games).
Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.
