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.

For Thursday, my choice was an easy one - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 contest for a $5 entry fee - but hurry if you want to join as they have been quickly filling up each day.

It sounds odd, but after selecting my first starting pitcher, Doug Fister, who is facing the toothless Phillies offense, I came back around to my second at the very end. I had so many hitting bargains that there was enough money remaining to take Madison Bumgarner, despite the Giants’ ace being the most expensive hurler for the day at $9300.

One budget player I’ve ridden along with in the early going is Mets catcher Travis d’Arnaud. How can you argue with a hitter with eight RBI in eight games and coming off a home run Wednesday night?  He is still just $3100, too.

Speaking of the Mets, have you noticed the odd start from Curtis Granderson? One of the hottest hitters in spring training is off to a rough sub-Mendoza line start at the plate with a line that includes twice as many walks, 10, as hits, five. Remember that in this scoring, a walk is as good as a single. The Grandy Man’s .405 OBP makes him a stealthy play at $2800.

Play along with us here.
