Here we are at the DFS challenge with our pals at RealTime Sports, where you can match up against my Mastersball mates and me, and prove to your friends that you are surely a better player than I!
Tune in here daily, as Patrick and I pick up the Mastersball gauntlet where you can play our daily 50/50 game ($5) or come right after me on Fridays in the free Beat the Experts contest. Beat me and you win $2, and believe me, this past week that was not hard to do!
As for weather, as a heat wave begins to invade the west coast, Kansas City and Texas are looking to rain.
Khris Davis ($5700): His bat is suddenly hot, he is streaky, and he gets to hit in Houston tonight against struggling youngster Joe Musgrove.
Matt Cain ($4800): I have been down on Cain and his lack of dominance for so long that it is surprising to me that he is suddenly a bargain, but after three straight strong starts, with his fastball hitting 90 as a set-up for his offspeed repertoire, Cain looks like he might have really transformed himself into a pitcher rather than a thrower. I'll bite.
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.
