We have a short slate on Monday with only seven games as part of the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, but the day is filled with interesting decisions.

Corey Kluber ($7600) is coming off his most impressive outing of the season with 30 points. That was after totaling 24 points in his previous four starts. Kluber goes against another ace with mixed results in Chris Sale ($7900). Pick one. The one virtual must-start is Matt Harvey ($9100).

With the two expensive pitchers, some inexpensive hitters are a must-find. Erick Aybar ($2700) and Freddy Galvis ($2000) are cheap shortstop options. Galvis has the added bonus of playing in Colorado.

I expect the Marlins to show some life with their recent managerial change. Marcell Ozuna ($3300) and Christian Yelich ($3500) are cheap outfield options for Monday.

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

Happy Sunday as we wrap up Week 6 with some fun potential contests while playing the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Before we start, again do note that every game East of Kansas City seems to have potential weather impacts, be they rain (most venues) or wind, which seems to be in the forecast at Kauffman Stadium.

Since pitching is indeed the core to success, and strikeouts are as noted the key, Shelby Miller ($6000) against the Fish, and A.J. Burnett ($6200) make a fun tandem going against younger teams that like to swing the bat. In particular, Burnett should be able to both get some velocity while pitching as the crafty veteran to the fun but still a bit raw young Cubbies.

On the field, I am looking at a couple of hot hitters this week, starting with Lorenzo Cain ($4100) against Chris Capuano (making his first start of the year) and the Buccos Josh Harrison ($3400) against Jake Arrieta.

Harrison is hitting a blistering .524-2-4 with a steal and six runs over his past five games, while Cain is at .301-0-6 with four runs over his last four.

As usual, you can take me on (now is a good time, as I am in a dry spell) at FantasyScore and claim the appropriate bragging rights.

FScore-160x320A happy Mastersball 50/50 Challenge Day to all of you on a day when we have some pretty fun contests to sort through.

Yesterday I mistakenly confused the strikeout capabilities of the Royals (who don't strike out) with the Astros (who do) in first assessing starting pitching. I did update my post, swapping out Michael Pineda for Madison Bumgarner, which turned out to be a good move.

Well, today, I am going with Gerrit Cole ($8700), who does indeed strike out batters, against the young Cubs, who do indeed whiff a bunch, pairing him with one of the more consistant starters this year, Zack Greinke ($8600) versus the Rockies at home.

However, there is a bad weather caveat for games in Chicago, Baltimore, and Cincinnati, so do check the weather before finalizing your rosters (I will indeed check in with a comment should I pull Cole).

That is indeed a lot of salary cap loaded into my pitchers, but as we know, all things seem to flow from a good starter and some whiffs.

So, with the high priced starters, I looked to a couple of outfield bargains in Shin-Soo Choo ($3100) who has been smoking hot of late against right-hander Danny Salazar, and then Mark Canha ($3000) who faces lefty John Danks. I have found that there are indeed points to be gained out of those platoons!

That is it for today. Don't forget you can take us on at FantasyScore.

Thanks to Cory Spangenberg and Bryce Harper, my first cycle in this month's ToutWars Daily tournament at FanDuel put me in the top three, which is a slot I need to maintain for three more weeks to make the August finals.

This Friday, with so many primo starting pitchers going out there, it is tough to choose, but I am sticking with the mojo of Michael Pineda ($9500) first because he does strike batters out, and second because he faces the Royals, who are good, but who strike out a lot.

While a lot of strong starters are indeed throwing today, similarly there are some question marks, so I am going with Paul Goldschmidt ($5300) and Tuffy Gosewisch ($2800) versus Chad Billingsley

Finally, I do like Robinson Cano ($4300) against Clay Buchholz and Jimmy Rollins ($2800) against rookie Eddie Butler and his 5.28 ERA.

Good luck with your Friday plays.

FScore-160x320My Friday Mastersball 50/50 Challenge squad favors the Mariners.

It does seem the M's have found something with the move of Brad Miller ($2100) off of shortstop, and several other Seattlites look pretty appealing against the Red Sox Clay Buchholz. Depending on your pitching choices, keep Nelson Cruz ($6000), Robinson Cano ($4700) and Kyle Seager ($4500) on your radar. 

Then, by using the inexpensive Miller at shortstop, you would have the room to roster Clayton Kershaw ($9000) or Madison Bumgarner ($8500). 

The Phillies are trucking Chad Billingsley out to the mound again. In each of his first two starts of the season, he has gone five innings and allowed five earned runs. That puts Paul Goldschmidt ($6200) and the rest of the Diamondbacks in play. 

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