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!
There is a chance of showers over the battle of Texas--that would be the Rangers and Astros--however, I am passing on picking players from either team, as I think it will be a tight matchup.
Whit Merrifield ($3800): Hitting .417-2-3 over the last two weeks while working on an 11-game hitting streak (and a May 30 contest in which Merrifield was a single shy of a cycle), the Royals second sacker goes up against soft-tossing Josh Tomlin.
Clayton Richard ($4900): Richard is twirling at home facing a team that struggles against Southpaws. He is a low-end crapshoot I can pair with one of tonight's high-end starters.
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.
