I am not sure if it was fortuitous, but during our Rehearsal Dinner last Friday, my Internet access was iffy, making it hard for me to see that I fell short making the final contest of the Tout Wars Challenge, hosted by Real Time Sports.
But, you can still match up against me and 199 other regular guys at RealTime's Friday "Beat the Experts" contest where you can play for free and should you beat me--which these days is not the big deal it seems--you can net a tidy $2 profit.
Pitching is clearly the core of our DFS point totals, and I am hoping Gio Gonzalez ($7000) can manage the Rockies at home. Gio has pitched pretty well, allowing more than three runs just once over his last ten starts, while I am also looking at Jeff Samardzija ($7700) twirling against the Braves home at ATT.
As for hitters, a couple of Red Sox--Dustin Pedroia ($5200) and Travis Shaw ($4300)--as part of the Boston hit machine look tasty facing the Royals' Ian Kennedy.
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.
