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.

For Thursday, my choice was an easy one - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest for a $5 entry fee. Today’s population is American League only - but hurry if you want to join as the Mastersball contests have been quickly filling up each day.

After three top-six finishes in the AL Cy Young Award voting in the last three years, 2015 may finally be Chris Sale’s year. In 104 career innings against the Kansas City Royals, the 26-year-old has a 2.68 ERA. There should be more ahead from where that came.

Though he is facing Sale, Royals outfielder Lorenzo Cain is a great roster filler at just $2700. You were expecting the steals, which he has, with an AL-best five, but how about this bonus - 12 RBI in 14 games and a league-leading .438 OBP?

Boston shortstop Xander Bogaerts is off to a steady .294 start with eight runs scored and eight RBI in his first 13 games. His price today is right at $3600.

Play along with us here.

Stacking Picks: It’s a shame the Padres are so limited offensively. Otherwise, I totally recommend stacking against Kyle Kendrick at home in Colorado. Other stacking options of interest include Mike Pelfrey, who will face the Royals at home, and Jarred Cosart, even though he is facing a weak opponent in Philadelphia.

Player Picks: For those looking for a value play, you may want to give a whirl on Kevin Plawecki ($1900). While he is a rookie, Plawecki has a very simple, disciplined, line drive hitting and contact oriented approach and some pop to back it up. He is a superior option to many of the more expensive, veteran options available, especially against the left-handed Eric Stults today.

As mentioned above, loading up on Padres is a wise option and a $2,900 salary makes Wil Myers a wise play as does a hot-hitting Will Middlebrooks at $2,300.

Tonight will feature a Clayton Kershaw/Madison Bumgarner showdown, so with runs likely to be scarce, the win could easily go to either pitcher or the bullpen. Better options may be David Price ($8,900) as your ace vs. the Yankees while Yovani Gallardo ($4,400) and Doug Fister ($6,200) might be solid secondary, cheaper options to play. The Angels have also struggled offensively and Sonny Gray at $7,100 might be a nice one-two punch combo with Price.

I'll be playing today in the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge over at FantasyScore, so come on and test your metal against me.
