Cycle II of Tout Daily begins tonight, with the Touts competing in a Friday Daily Contest with our friends at DraftKings with Derek Carty and Howard Bender earning the first pair of golden tickets to the finals.
You can follow the Tout Daily standings right here and see the Touts weekly picks every Friday morning along with a wrap-up on Saturday at the Tout Wars site. I also recap and preview the standings right here every Wednesday in my Fout Wars column.
Clayton Kershaw ($11,300): Expensive? Yes, but the lessons of Robbie Ray and the Rockies vulnerabilities to Southpaws are not lost to me, so downtown with the best lefty--maybe pitcher--in the game I go.
Elvis Andrus ($4200): Still not considered among any kind of top-tier shortstop it seems, Andrus averages eight points a game and is wielding a pretty solid .386 OBP with a couple of homers, a steal, and six walks over his last ten games. He should be able to continue against Oakland and Jesse Hahn at home.
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.
