FScore-160x320

On Thursday, I will be ready to take you on from my regular spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $90 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular.

Here are a few of my picks.

On the pitching side, most will probably load up on the big money hurler of the evening, Madison Bumgarner ($9600), who draws the Padres at Petco. Hard to argue with that logic, though it probably means finding a budget second starter to pair with him. My recommendation is Miami’s Jarred Cosart ($3900), back after missing two months due to vertigo. In his three September starts since returning, the 25-year-old righty has allowed just three earned runs in 15 2/3 frames for a 1.72 ERA. Cosart takes on the Phillies at home on Thursday.

It has been easy to spot the late-season contributions of Cardinals rookie center fielder Tommy Pham ($3000). The only reason the 27-year-old had an opportunity in the majors was the injury to Randal Grichuk. Now that Grichuk and Matt Holliday are back, it is a juggling act to keep them plus rookie Stephen Piscotty and Jason Heyward in the same lineup. But when Pham plays, he produces – four home runs and 13 RBI in 18 September games, of which he started just 10. Watch for the posting of St. Louis’ lineup this afternoon.

Compete against the Mastersball staff at FantasyScore here. I can be followed on Twitter @b_walton.
