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.

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

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.

Not many options available in today's Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

I'm going with Zack Greinke ($8700) vs. the Braves and Lance Lynn ($6400) vs. the Diamondbacks.

On the hitting front, I'm focusing on some Cardinals vs. the aforementioned D-backs with  Matt Holliday ($5000), Matt Carpenter ($5500) and Yadier Molina ($4100) vs. the fringy Josh Collmenter. Trying to save some money using Erick Aybar ($3000) and Yunel Escobar ($2100) vs. the lefty Jon Lester.

Again, play the Masterballers at FantasyScore.

 If the post-Memorial Day depression is keeping you blue, join FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.  It could be the right medicine to perk you up.

 With a full slate of MLB games, one would think that selecting pitchers today would require little effort. Sadly, I do not think that today is the day of easy picking. My preference has been to go with home teams. Among those playing at home today, I only like David Price ($8900) and Jacob DeGrom ($7300).

 Beyond that, looking at recent results, Madison Bumgarner ($8500) has done quite well and is going against Matt Garza, who has been less than stellar this season. That said, Bumgarner is on the road in Milwaukee.

 Unfortunately, all three are quite expensive. However, today appears to be the day for extravagant spending on pitchers.

 As far as the hitters, ignoring all else but the recent hot streaks, Prince Fielder ($4600) and most Rangers have been torrid hot. Hunter Pence ($4600) has been on a tear since returning from the DL. Torii Hunter ($4300) has at least one hit in his last four games and Brian Dozier ($4900), hitting at the top of the Twins lineup, is long removed from his early troubles.

 These four batters are not excessively expensive. When added to two of the above three pitchers, they could make a well-rounded team.

 Join me at FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.
