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 we 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!
Pittsburgh and Colorado look for some showers, and that is about it on the rain front aside from sending thoughts to those at the wet end of Hurricane Harvey.
Kevin Gausman ($6700): Gausman has not only salvaged his year with a solid second half, allowing two runs or less in six of his last eight starts, but he is facing a Blue Jays team that struggles against righties, hitting just .240 off them this year.
Alcides Escobar ($2200): I was indeed looking bargain basement at short so I could stack my outfield (which I did), but the switch-hitting Escobar goes against Dillon Gee, who hasn't so much pitched poorly as he has gone more than four innings only once this year.
