FScore-160x320Time to finish off May with another shot at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Once again, inclimate weather threatens the Eastern Seaboard (New York, Baltimore and Philadelphia), and the midwest (Chicago and Cincinatti), so keep an eye on the Weatherman and your rosters.

For the most part, we have seen the monster starters Friday and Saturday, but Madison Bumgarner ($8500), in stride and starting against an at best erratic Braves team at home at ATT, is probably as good a set of variables as a pick can get.

As for hitting, there are a couple of games that just seemed like offensive bonanzas all around: Boston/Texas (Joe Kelly v. Wandy Rodriguez in Arlington), making Prince Fielder ($5800) a nice bet, as well as Mookie Betts ($4400) and Dustin Pedroia ($4100).

The other contest that looks like it might have some sticking is the White Sox (John Danks, 2-4, 5.69) going against the Astros' Roberto Hernandez (2-3, 4.77). That makes Alexei Ramirez ($3400) a nice moderate gamble to help the financing of MadBum.

FScore-160x320Working through the Saturday party at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge I am looking first at starting pitching, and it is very tough to ignore Michael Wacha ($7800) and Tyson Ross ($6800) atop the heap. If you do purchase Wacha, keep an eye on the weather map, though, as rain is anticipated in St. Louis, Chicago, New York, Cincinatti, Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Although, another interesting, somewhat lesser option is the Pale Hose's Jose Quintana ($4900) pitching against the Astros. Quintana has been iffy, but he can indeed whiff hitters. Irrespective, if you need to gamble on points, that is where I would go.

There are a few fun hitting chances against ostensibly weaker pitchers in Jorge De La Rosa (1-2, 6.51), Jeremy Hellickson (2-2, 5.33), Erasmo Ramirez (2-2, 6.62) and rookie Chi Chi Gonzalez, making his first Major League start in Texas.

I personally like a couple of Marlins right-handers--Giancarlo Stanton ($6200) and Martin Prado ($3000)-- against lefty Jon Niese, but with the weather concerns all over, I will be checking my roster and making updates up to the very end.

Tout Wars Daily Picks for 5/29/15 PDF Print E-mail

OK, I don't remember being this nervous about the boxes since the last day of the 2009 season when the AL Tout Wars title was on the line.

As of today, I do lead the May contest by nine points over Lenny Melnick (See the leaderboard) at the FanDuel contest, but again I am trying to tread the fine line between playing the smart moves and not being caught flatfooted.

Since pitching is everything, I had narrowed things down to Francisco Liriano ($9100) in San Diego and Cole Hamels ($9800) at home against the Rockies, and after some discussion with the DFS genius Lord Z settled on Hamels, largely because the Rockies cannot hit Southpaws. 

In trying to spread the wealth, I like a couple of Athletics (Ben Zobrist, $3000 and Marcus Semien, $2900) against lefty Chris Capuano, and similarly like Trevor Plouffe ($2900) at home against another lefty, Mark Buehrle, while looking at Kole Calhoun ($2800) against Anibal Sanchez, who has allowed 11 homers and a 6.12 ERA against opposing batters.

I guess I am lucky in that my band, The BileTones, is playing a show tonight and that will distract me from scoreboard watching (if you are in the Bay Area, we are playing Rooster's Roadhouse at 1700 Clement, in Alameda, Ca, from roughly 8-10 PM and love a crowd!).

FScore-160x320We finish up Memorial Day Week with some fine starters, and at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge I am looking at Matt Harvey ($9100) against the Fish, and Sonny Gray ($8300) versus the Pinstripes, at home no less, might be the highest priced players in today's collective, but similarly, they are my fave picks.

If you do want to look beneath the surface and gamble, however, the Carlos Rodon ($4200)/Lance McCullers ($3900) squaring could provide some fun and interesting results.

A first base possibility at a low cost is the Giants Brandon Belt, who had not homered this season till May 15, but has clubbed six since. Furthermore, though we need to put streaks and such in context, Belt has homered each of the last two Friday's and faces righty Mike Foltynewicz.

Finally, right-handed Twins hitters could fare well against the clever but hittable Mark Buehrle.

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. I’ve finished first and fourth in the last two Thursdays and am looking to continue my recent success.

Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to quickly fill up each day.

Here are a few of my picks.

On the pitching side, there are some nice choices. Many will take the easy route with the top arm on the board in red-hot Corey Kluber at $8800. It would be difficult to argue with them. However, I saved a few bucks going with an equally-scorching hurler in Atlanta’s Shelby Miller at $8100 and teamed him with one of MLB’s quietest successes of 2015, Pittsburgh’s A.J. Burnett, who has a 1.37 ERA to date. The latter, a $7500 buy, gets a start in San Diego tonight. Despite all their off-season upgrades, the Padres are currently 10th of 15 NL squads with a .682 team OPS.

Offensively, I like Detroit’s Rajai Davis as a value selection at $3500. Though the outfielder has the bad side of a platoon with Anthony Gose this season, the Tigers draw a lefty Thursday evening in C.J. Wilson, so Davis should be in manager Brad Ausmus’ lineup. The Angels’ starter seems vulnerable, having been rocked for four runs in each of his two most recent outings.

Play along with us here.
