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.

Pitching (once again) and weather (still) dominate the Wednesday FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge selections, so if you are out to play daily, and especially challenge us, note that the mid-South--that is Texas--is gearing up for hail the size of baseballs which will hurt a windshield, but are hard to throw.

Similarly, wet weather could creep into the East, so pay attention to who is playing inside, outside, and simply where it is dry.

Yesterday I went with the cheap control pitchers (Mark Buehrle and Brett Anderson) and though Buehrle got a win, neither hurler helped that much, so today I am looking at strikeouts and more dominance, starting with Johnny Cueto ($8700), thinking the Brewers might be due, but are still struggling enough that a top arm can bring them down.

As for hitters, I again like the San Diego sticks playing in the Rockies (which appears to be clear of the inclimate), and am taking a low-end shot with Jedd Gyorko, who is indeed still struggling (.163-0-3) but who has put up positive points for the past five days.

Gyorko has some serious pop, as we know, and Coors is a good place to tie into it.

Good luck with your selections today, and remember, you can match up against Rob, Marc, and me at FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

As we lock and load for a full complement of Tuesday games, I am inclined to follow the lead of my Master Mate Marc, who likes the Rockies at home.

True, the team was pretty much pounded by the Pads on Monday, but I am steering clear of all the hurlers, and looking at Troy Tulowitzki ($6000).

But, to win big in this game, it is mostly about playing your cards right with starting arms, so I have Mark Buehrle ($4400), who I think can handle Baltimore in the early season with his "get ready to hit it because I won't give you much time to think about it" style. (OK, I confess that I will take the Jays Southpaw as much as I can during April because he is really quite good during the first month as well as being reasonably priced.)

Then, turning to the NL, the Giants just cannot score any runs, and I am guessing they will be overswinging when facing ground ball pitcher Brett Anderson ($4300).

You can match up against Marc, Rob Leibowitz, and me at the MB 50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore

We have a short slate of games on tap for Monday without a ton of pitching options.

I have my eye on Edinson Volquez ($3700) facing the Twins for the second time in a row. Last week, Volquez survived a rough first inning to go deep in the game but the Royals offense went south.

The Rockies head home to play the Padres. Plenty of options on both teams starting with Troy Tulowitzki ($6000) and Matt Kemo ($5200). Keep an eye on the weather as snow is expected early in the day. Don't forget you can play against the other Mastersballers and me at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore.

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.
