I will be ready to take you on from Brian Walton’s regular Thursday spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular.
With only five games offered today by the FantasyScore menu, selecting pitchers appears to be a piece of cake. However, it is not. While Jordan Zimmermann ($8000) is an easy choice for the first pitcher, the selection of the second pitcher is a toss-up between Francisco Liriano ($7500) and Taylor Jungmann ($6500). Their last outings were impressive. Given all things equal, I am going with the less expensive Jungmann.
On the hitting side, Marlon Byrd ($4400) has been stellar since he moved to the Giants. He and Lorenzo Cain ($5800) are my choice for outfielders. In addition, I am looking to roster Jimmy Rollins ($4100) and Adrian Gonzalez ($5200). Need an inexpensive hitter? Consider Jose Peraza ($3500).
It seems that the weather will not interfere with our favorite pastime today.
Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore and follow Pasko on Twitter @varnica123.
