FScore-160x320Here's hoping you had success yesterday at the  Mastersball 50/50 Challenge. I have to confess that my day, puncutated by a great gig by Michael Pineda, was going swimmingly, and that similarly, I was distracted and did not see that two of my players--Jason Castro and Eduardo Escobar--were not starting. The gooseggs those two holes created cost me dearly (as in I finished one slot out of the money, by less than a point), so do indeed check your starting lineups vigilantly.

And, today is another day, with weather issues potentially in Kansas City and Atlanta only.

While yesterday I went a little off-the-path in choosing Pineda, today it is Chris Sale ($9700) all the way, augmented by a somewhat resurgent Marco Estrada ($6300) facing a somewhat struggling Tigers team.

In fact, in the wake of that, I am going with some Jays who have had big success against Justin Verlander, who is still trying to work into some kind of groove. Russell Martin ($5100), Jose Bautista ($5500), Jose Reyes ($4500), and especially Justin Smoak ($3500) have all knocked Verlander around a lot over the past five years, so today the gambit is stack city.

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore.

FScore-160x320Happy Fourth of July, the perfect day to supplement your fireworks watching and BBQ by tracking your Mastersball 50/50 Challenge team!

There are some top line hurlers going today, between Madison Bumgarner, David Price and Felix Hernandez, but I favor the up-and-down Michael Pineda ($8200) facing the swing- happy Rays in New York (though be careful to track the weather in Washington, New York and Texas, where showers are expected). 

As for hitters, I am thinking the Cardinals will break out against the Padres and soft-tosser Odrisamer Despaigne, going with Randal Grichuk ($4400), Kolten Wong ($5300) and Jason Heyward ($4900).

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore.

Here we are at the Fourth of July Weekend, and the second to last FanDuel Tout Wars Daily where there are some daunting pitching challenges tonight.

Chris Archer and Clayton Kershaw are the obvious choices, but the sleepers are Mike Fiers ($7600 w/ 93 strikeouts over 89.3 frames this year) and Ubaldo Jimenez, ($8400) and I am going with the latter who has been good this season (7-3, 3.09 with 89 whiffs) and wicked his last three starts (3-0, 2.75 with 23 K).

On the hitting side, I am again looking at platoon mini stacks, both against the Mariners and Twins. I am again sticking my neck out with Josh Phegley ($3100) and Billy Burns ($3700) against J.A. Happ at home, along with Eduardo Escobar ($2500), Joe Mauer ($2600) against the struggling Jeremy Guthrie.

FScore-160x320Happy 4th of July weekend to all. Looking over the Friday slate of games, only two pitchers pop out - Chris Archer ($9500) and Clayton Kershaw ($9400). I can’t make a case for anyone else if you are playing the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

With two expensive pitchers, we have to search deep for some bargain position players. Phillies second baseman Cesar Hernandez ($2100) is really doing the job in recent days, scoring at least five points in six straight games. Outfielder Alejandro De Aza ($2900) has found new life with the Red Sox (Remember early in the season when the Red Sox outfield was filled two-deep?), scoring at least three points in six straight games.

Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at Fantasy Score, and you can follow me on Twitter @mastersballmarc.

FScore-160x320On 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.

It is a big day for pitching, with some tantalizing choices in the day games, but some nice matchups in our evening contest, too. Among the latter is Max Scherzer ($9800) taking on Manny Banuelos ($3500) in the latter’s MLB debut and Tyson Ross ($6900) drawing the Matt Holliday-less Cardinals offense. I am taking Ross, as the Pads’ lineup, nothing to brag about either, gets to face a minor-league call-up in lefty Tim Cooney at Busch Stadium. In 15 career innings vs. St. Louis, Ross has a 2.40 ERA.

OK, it is not a stretch to pick Josh Donaldson ($6000) seven days a week, but with the recent surge by Nolan Arenado ($6100), the Jay’s third sacker almost looks like a bargain in comparison. Donaldson, with a career .966 OPS against left-handed pitching, draws Red Sox lefty Wade Miley at home. This is a night to spend the big bucks on Donaldson and I am in!

Compete with the Mastersball staff at FantasyScore here.
