As I scour the near-full slate of games for Monday, I am having trouble putting together an offensive lineup that I am happy with. I am certainly going to continue rolling out Devon Travis ($2800) at second base until either the price catches up to his production or he cools down significantly.

While I am unsure on hitters, I have locked into two pitchers on Monday that I fully expect to put up stud numbers. David Price ($8900) was awful last week against the Yankees, but he comes back to face the Twins. 

James Shields ($7000) gets the strikeout prone Houston Astros in San Diego. I do expect the Astros to keep the game close with their own stud Collin McHugh ($5000) on the mound.

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.

The Zen versus Excel experiment has indeed begun between Lord Z and me. Todd and I had an extended discussion yesterday whereby he was debunking relying up Batter versus Pitcher (BvP) stats, suggesting the sample size is small, and that streaks and isolated success are not particularly good predictors. 

In fact, he wrote this fine piece for our friends over at Fantasy Alarm discussing just that topic.

I don't disgree with Z, although at some point push comes to shove, and while I do believe in the numbers, I also believe in trusting our hunches and instincts, no matter how anecdotal and silly that might seem.

Of course there will be more on this, but at least my picks of Dustin Pedroia and Alejandro De Aza yesterday worked out ok.

So, in that vein, I would take Gerardo Parra ($1900) as my bargain FantasyScore selection for today. Why? Well, over 17 at-bats against Lance Lynn ($6100), Parra is .471-2-2. 

I also like hit machine Jose Altuve ($6000) against Oakland Southpaw Drew Pomeranz (ok, it is hard to not like Altuve against anyone, right?).

Finally, I am on the Anthony DeSclafani ($3500) bandwagon, with a young pitcher facing a young Cubs team where today the weather at Great American Ballpark is supposed to be mostly sunny.

Which is what I hope your DFS foray is today.

Remember, you can take us on at the Mastersball50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore!

A rugged Friday on all fronts, mostly thanks to Shane Greene, who lost his magic in a major way, but the beauty of baseball, as we all know, is the eternal optimism of next pitch, next at-bat, next inning, and of course, tomorrow.

Well, tomorrow is today, and today I picked a couple of hitters who might well be under the radar, but point to some big success.

To start, though, I am banking that Matt Harvey ($7700) will help avenge the Yankees whipping of Jacob deGrom on Friday (last year's ROY barely fared better than Greene!), and pick up some whiffs while his mates take advantage of the "still learning to be crafty" C.C. Sabathia.

And, before we look at the outfield, if you are looking for a second sacker, Dustin Pedroia ($4400) has hit Baltimore's Wei-Yin Chen to the tune of .519-0-5 over 27 at-bats, while on the other side of the diamond, Alejandro De Aza ($2400) has clobbered Justin Masterson for .324-0-4 line over 34 at-bats.

Finally, Denard Span ($3100) is back full-time with his National mates, and though his sample against Tom Koehler is small (eight at-bats), the flychaser is hitting .378-0-1, making him an interesting play.

Don't forget you can duke it out with Rob Leibowitz, Marc Meltzer, and me at the FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, beat us, and brag to your buds!

Well, I feel better about my sixth place finish last week with 42.25 points after my awful first week (25.25), although it was not enough to catch Week 2 Winner, Mike Bellam.

For Week 3, there the choices were tougher for me in that I had to gamble on a serious pitcher, going for Jordan Zimmerman ($9400) against division rivals/somewhat anemica at the dish Miami. The Fish do like to swing their sticks, and Zimmerman and his Nationals mates are starting to get healthy and play like the team anticipated before the season began.

For hitters, I am looking at a couple of Seattle left-handed bats in Kyle Seager ($3700) and Robinson Cano ($4100) along with their "bargain" backstop, Mike Zunino ($2500), who clobbered his first two homers of the season this week.

The Mariners, matching up against the Twins and Phil Hughes, seem like a good gamble for this cycle.

Yahoo!'s Scott Pianowski leads the pack of Touts participating despite an off-week last roster. Full season results can be found here.

Remember that the baseball season is a marathon and not a sprint. It is ok to pass on a day or two to breathe the air or if you just don’t like the MLB slate. I sat out on Wednesday to take in a high school baseball playoff game in the prospect hotbed of Palm Beach County. There are several players that have a chance to beat the odds and five years from now, it would be fun to have Cody Wilson or Mack Lemieux (both from Jupiter High School) in my daily fantasy lineups.

As for Friday, we have a full slate of 15 night games in play. I have to continue to play Palm Beach County product Devon Travis ($2800) at second base. He is still only the 14th highest priced player at the position. He will not continue to hit near .400, but anyone that has seen him hit in the Minors knows that this kid hits the ball hard all the time.

On the pitching side, I am going back to Scott Kazmir ($5000) at home against Houston. Kazmir scored 17 points with eight strikeouts on April 13 against these same Houston Astros.

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score.
