Sunday 22nd Oct 2017

FScore-160x320It looks like a potential blustery Tuesday around the Majors, with rain threatening in New York, Denver, Pittsburgh, Washington, and Cleveland, so do audit your squad as the day and weather develop.

As for me, for now, I am indeed looking at Corey Kluber, facing the Astros at home.

As for hitters, there is such a litany of unknown/struggling starting pitchers today that there is indeed a smorgasbord of choices. I am liking lefty Cardinals for the late game against Dallas Beeler, but a couple of bangers, Edwin Encarnacion ($5400) against lefty Jose Quintana, and also Alex Gordon ($4300) facing Matt Andriese in the second game of their twin bill.

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

FScore-160x320 Some people were burned on Sunday by the White Sox decision to push Chris Sale ($9700) to Monday. While I would have preferred to see him against the Orioles, he is still a near must-play even against the Jays. The Dallas Keuchel ($9100) vs. Carlos Carrasco ($6600) matchup will be a great one to watch. If I had to pick one pitcher, it would be Carrasco due to price.

I will keep pushing Cesar Hernandez ($2100) out there at 2B as long as his price stays near where it is. I wrote on Friday that he had at least five points in six straight games, and he added another 15 points in three games since. 

The Brewers have been on an offensive tear led by Gerardo Parra ($3800) with five straight games of five or more points and Adam Lind ($4300) with back-to-back ten point games. Everyone else in the Brewers lineup has been contributing as well.

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).

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.

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.
