We have a short slate of games on tap for Monday without a ton of pitching options.

I have my eye on Edinson Volquez ($3700) facing the Twins for the second time in a row. Last week, Volquez survived a rough first inning to go deep in the game but the Royals offense went south.

The Rockies head home to play the Padres. Plenty of options on both teams starting with Troy Tulowitzki ($6000) and Matt Kemo ($5200). Keep an eye on the weather as snow is expected early in the day. Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore.

Yesterday worked pretty well for my FantasyScore in picking Robinson Cano ($5900), who bagged four points, and Jose Bautista ($5800) who pulled in another seven, both of whom helped me finish in the money with fellow Mastersballers Rob Leibowitz (11th) and Marc Meltzer (6th) to my 15th place slot.Though I do have star selections as my recommendation for today's play, there are games I would look at where I think the hitters will have a lot of fun.

First off, Scott Feldman played a pivotal role in my 2009 AL Tout Wars Championship team, but that was six years ago, and Feldman has shown me very little since. That means a lot of Angels, including left-handed hitters, could have a field day. In fact, one of my top picks for today is Mike Trout ($6400), who has largely been raking this season (.444-3-9).

Next, I am taking Angel Pagan (a mere $2700)--a switch-hitter--facing the awful Jeremy Hellickson. Pagan is off to a healthy start with a .370-0-3 line, while Hellickson's 0-2, 6.55 record over two starts, with a 1.91 ERA and 8/5 strikeout/walk ratio is pretty bad. When you think that Hellickson has not won a game since August of last year, well, you understand the pick.

While we are at ATT, I feel good picking the ageless (almost 40) Tim Hudson ($4500) and his 0-1, 2.03 ERA at home in a pitcher's environ. Somehow, I think the Giants will jump on Hellickson, and Hudson will be able to pitch with a lead, and that will be all she wrote.

Remember, you can play against Rob, Marc, and me at the MB 50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore.

After a hot start to yesterday's scorecard, thanks to Max Scherzer, Devon Travis and Bryce Harper, my guys dropped from the top scoring squads to a mediocre middle of the pack with my so-called sleepers--Collin Cowgill and Matt Duffy--sleeping.

For Saturday's challenge, I am looking at some lefty/righty match-ups, starting with Toronto banger Jose Bautista ($5800) going against lefty Alex Wood ($6300).

It is true that @joeybats numbers have been schizy (.139-2-6) but looking at his line, the hits have come in clusters every couple of days as the outfielder has been zeroing in on steady hitting. With a couple of quiet days, I am thinking Bautista comes through today.

Then Seattle takes on the Rangers and Colby Lewis ($3100), who with a 1-0, 3.38 record thus far looks like an interesting Saturday selection, but rather, I am buying in on Seattle having some fun at the dish today, and I am banking that Robinson Cano ($5900) will also be able to take advantage accordingly (This also makes Kyle Seager at $5000 an interesting play.)

Good luck today and make sure you play against us Mastersballers at the MB 50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore!

Tout Wars Daily Picks for 4/17/15 PDF Print E-mail

So, Week 1 of the Tout Wars Fan Duel is history.

What the folks at Fan Duel have done in partnership with Tout Wars is to create a weekly challenge among the 65-odd Tout Warriors. We can set rosters each Friday for games that night. In addition to a cash prize for winning, the top team also advances to an August-to-end-of-season tournament which will see the weekly winners duke it out for top dog spot in the 2015 Challenge.

Among the 35 participants last week (we can opt to play every week, or occassionally, however to keep playing after August, we must win, as noted), I placed a lowly 20th with a team that was sparked by Kevin Kiermaier, then dragged down by like cheap gambles C.J. Cron and Brandon Crawford.

The actual first week champ was our friend Scott Pianowski (from Yahoo!) who rode Giancarlo Stanton, Dee Gordon and Drew Pomeranz to victory. Congrats @Scott-Pianowski!

A couple of my choices for tonight are the obvious, Bryce Harper ($4200), playing at home against a questionable Phillies team starting Sean O'Sullivan, and that just sounds like fun if you are a Nationals batter in general.

Second, I am taking a chance on Matt Adams ($3300) against the Reds and Johnny Cueto. Adams did get one of four hits--a homer--off of Cueto last week, and the Cincy hurler has not fared so well at new Busch, with a 2-3, 5.80 record over nine starts. I think Adams breaks out of his .167-1-2 doldrums. Well, I hope he does.

Stud pitchers are everywhere on Friday. Take your pick of Clayton Kershaw ($9800), Max Scherzer ($9200), David Price ($8900), Corey Kluber (($8900), Johnny Cueto ($8700), and Sonny Gray ($7100). So where are the cheap position options?


Rougned Odor ($2500) is a low-priced 2B option, especially if the recent move up the batting order sticks.


Jed Lowrie ($2400) has hit in six of his previous seven games with three home runs. Now he sees Jered Weaver, who may be on his last legs.


The Mets called up Eric Campbell ($1600). Campbell slid right in to the 3B spot and is a steal at the lowest price point in the game. Just keep in mind that he is positioned at 1B in the contest.


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