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!
Monday presents a limited schedule with a chance of showers over the Rockies, both the mountains and the team.
Blake Snell ($6400): Snell is still pretty raw, but he is also more than talented, with 27 strikeouts and a 3.45 ERA despite a 1.61 WHIP. Control and owning the zone are the issues for the young pitcher, but he is coming off a nine-strikeout performance against the Fish and should be able to handle the Royals on a Monday night.
Michael Conforto ($4400): I like Conforto and his .325-7-20 line even if he isn't facing Matt Moore and his 1-4, 6.75 mark.
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.
