It is June, where ideally the local Giants will not swoon as in the past, and where when playing DFS, every day is a new season, although the aforementioned body of stats certainly can be exploited and that means you can try to lick me at RealTime's weekly "Beat the Experts" contest, where you get a chance to outsmart 198 other DFS players and me (no entry fee with a $2 payout if you can beat my score).
There is the rain threatening, in the midwest, potentially impacting games in Pittsburgh, Baltimore, Philadelphia, Arlington, and Minneapolis.
As for arms, I have written all year about the potential emergence of Nathan Eovaldi ($6600) facing the Orioles, who do hit homers (62) but also whiff (349), but over his last three starts, Eovaldi is 3-0, 1.00, with an 0.778 WHIP and 17 whiffs over 16 frames.
As for hitters, I like Neil Walker ($4500) and his teammate Yoenis Cespedes ($5300) facing Chris Tillman along with Starling Marte ($5800) matching against Jered Weaver.
After some bad administration last week, I am using the same roster for the next cycle of the the Tout Wars Challenge, where I am mired in the middle of the pack and need some low percentage selections to sneak past my mates and earn a golden ticket to the playoffs.
Remember that if you are struggling to make DFS baseball work for you, try Todd's fantastic new Daily Rankings which break down his best picks and can be tweaked to match the contest you are playing. This is a Platinum only feature.
And, don't forget, you can hit me up @lawrmichaels and also feel free to comment, flatter, cajole, ridicule, bewitch, bother, and bewilder in the comments section below.
