I will be ready to take you on from my regular Tuesday 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.
King Felix Hernandez ($8900) with 24 strikeouts over his last three starts is my pick for pitcher number one. Selecting the second pitcher ended up being a toss-up between Jacob deGrom ($9600) and Stephen Strasburg ($7300). Salary ceiling permitting, deGrom is a good choice because I like the Mets this season. On the other hand, if the salary becomes an issue, John Lamb ($5100) is a valid inexpensive solution.
As far as the hitters are concerned, the Nationals are up against David Buchanan while the White Sox face Aaron Brooks. Both pitchers have been underwhelming this year, so I am counting on a high scoring opportunity for the Nats and the Sox. I am selecting from these two teams Tyler Saladino ($3100), Adam Eaton ($4500) along with the hot hands of Anthony Rendon ($5000) and Jayson Werth ($4800). These players are not going to break the bank, leaving me with enough dough for Yoenis Cespedes ($6200).
Hard to believe, but it may rain in L.A. today.
