FScore-160x320On Friday, we see no shortage of aces for the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Assuming he goes, my lineup starts with Clayton Kershaw ($9700). Other aces to choose from include Madison Bumgarner ($9500), Johnny Cueto ($9200) and Matt Harvey ($9000). But I am going down the list for Drew Hutchison ($5100). His home/road splits are way out of wack. His home ERA is under 2.50 while his road ERA is 9.00. Tonight's start is at home. I have no explanation for the splits, but I am going to ride it.

Offense starts with low-priced catcher Mike Zunino ($2400) with his nine-game hitting streak. Also looking at underpriced 1B Eric Hosmer ($4300), who is red hot but only the 19th highest priced player at the position.

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore and you can follow me @mastersballmarc.

Tout Wars Daily Picks for 7/31/15 PDF Print E-mail

If last week was crunch time for the July Tout Wars, now it is crunch month for the Touts, who have yet to qualify for the final September tournament with only three slots left to gain entrance.

I am going into this final cycle with the starting pitcher who helped kickstart my May play, which did indeed get me a token to next month's play. Gio Gonzalez ($9600) can get whiffs and is facing the Mets, the team with the second worst strikeout rate against lefties in the Majors. 

After that, I was able to mete my budget balance out sort of evenly, but I did find a number of reasonably priced outfielders--Billy Burns ($3000) and Nick Markakis ($2800)--whom I hope can deliver some points (each has a good right/left match-up) in support of some whiffs and strong frames by Gio.

On Thursday, I will be ready to take you on from my regular spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular. 

Here are a couple of my picks. 

Few pitchers have been as consistently solid this season as the 23-year-old from the St. Louis Cardinals, Carlos Martinez ($8100). The right-hander has 11 wins, a 2.34 ERA and 9.1 strikeouts per nine innings. The 2015 National League All-Star draws the Tulo-less Rockies at home in Busch Stadium Thursday night.

Speaking of Troy Tulowitzki ($5400), the Blue Jays’ new shortstop hit two doubles and a home run in his Toronto debut Wednesday. I like him to continue his hot streak against the Royals’ Danny Duffy Thursday evening. In just one career game between the two, Tulo went deep and plated two.

Compete with the Mastersball staff at FantasyScore here.

FScore-160x320There might be a full complement of games today, but with so many early starts we have to be selective at the Mastersball Daily 50-50 Challenge. On the plus side, none of the later starting games is threatened by bad weather, but I am sort of bummed that I cannot try pitting Ervin Santana against Francisco Liriano in a game where two pretty good pitchers face teams that are not so good facing right-handers.

That leaves us with some slim pickings, and you might be right to start Clayton Kershaw against the Athletics (though the A's have performed ok against Kershaw in the past and do hit lefties well), so I am going with John Lackey ($7900) against the retooling Reds and Tyson Ross ($7700) against the erratic Mets.

As far as hitters, I must admit to feeling like I am struggling at the Mendoza Line, picking a hitter who did well yesterday and looks good today and maybe gets a walk (double digits are eluding me), but I do think Troy Tulowitzki ($5400) is worth the price of admission today as he will want to show his new team just what they got with the best shortstop in the game.

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore and follow me on Twitter @lawrmichaels.

FanDuel Challenge Picks for 7/28/15 PDF Print E-mail

Welcome to another Tuesday at the FanDuel Tout Wars Challenge, where for just $2 you can not only have a chance to double your money, but own bragging rights in whipping the Touts in the DFS format (Click to play: FanDuel).

If you are playing, there are several interesting pitching options for today, but I am going with James Shields, who is pitching away, but against a Mets team that whiffs 21.8% of the time against right-handers and has only hit them at a .237 clip.

And, while some good starters (like Sonny Gray and Jose Fernandez) are hurling today, there are a ton of unknown and erratic pitchers making a lot of hitting plays potentially fun and productive.

I am spreading it around as a result, but I do like Brandon Crawford ($3100) going against Wily Peralta, and while the Indians and Royals duke it out, I like Carlos Santana ($3200) to at least get a walk and go from there against Chris Young, and Gregory Polanco ($2500) to do something exciting against Mike Pelfrey!

Remember, you can trash talk about whipping the Touts and make a handy $2 profit at the FanDuel Tout Wars Challenge!
