I will be ready to take you on from my regular Tuesday spot - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Do not delay joining, as the Mastersball contests continue to be very popular.

I generally pick pitchers who are playing on their home turf, but today I am all for Jake Arrieta ($9400) and Jaime Garcia ($7200). My enthusiasm for them is justified by their recent superb performances. If Arrieta’s salary scares you, you may want to consider Stephen Strasburg ($9000) or Nate Karns ($6700).

As far as hitters are concerned, Mike Montgomery and Jerome Williams have struggled lately. This gives us an opportunity to field a team with a few expensive hitters from the New York Mets combined with inexpensive ones from the Oakland A’s. From these two teams today, I like Yoenis Cespedes ($5900), David Wright ($3900), who is at last back in action, Stephen Vogt ($4000) and Josh Reddick ($4600).

It seems that the weather will not interfere with our favorite pastime today.

Don't forget that you can indeed match up against the Mastersballers at FantasyScore and follow Pasko @varnica123.

Another Monday short slate as we have nine games (and lose Kluber and Lester to an early start).

After Jacob deGrom ($9500) and Hisashi Iwakuma ($7800), there is not very much pitching. deGrom has allowed two or fewer runs in seven straight games while Iwakuma has spun four straight good starts.  Arizona is hitting too well for me to consider Lance Lynn ($8200) and Julio Teheran ($6800) has been way too inconsistent.

On the hitting side, A.J. Pollock ($6000) has 11 hits in his past three games. Nelson Cruz ($6200) has to be in your lineup every day (as I have been writing for a couple of weeks now) until his price becomes prohibitive. I have not been on Jose Altuve ($5600) for awhile, but after getting five hits this weekend off of Greinke and Kershaw, I will be using him now.

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

It looks to be a beautiful Sunday, with not just a full complement of contests at the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP but with great late summer weather all around.

At this point of the season, it is nearly impossible to let go of Clayton Kershaw ($9900), not so much just because he is the best pitcher on the planet, but because the chances are a lot of my opponents will also take him, so Kershaw becomes a point machine to simply keep pace with the rest of the Challenge.

As a second starter, however, I went with Jordan Zimmermann ($8000) going against the Brewers, thinking the percentages are still with a strong hurler against a weaker hitting team.

For hitters, since it is Sunday at Coors, I took the Mets' Wilmer Flores ($3600) and gambled a wad on Yoenis Cespedes ($5200), two days removed from a monster game, and one day from an off day, thinking the altitude and hype will combine for a homer or a couple of hits or something.

It is Saturday at the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee, which means lots of games and lots of choices.

For pitchers, I am going local with Sonny Gray ($9600) twirling against the Rays at home, and finishing up with Danny Salazar ($7900), hoping the youngster can mostly duplicate what his teammate, Carlos Carrasco, did yesterday (innings and strikeouts).

As for hitters, it is a potpourri, but I gotta stay on the A.J. Pollock ($6000) bandwagon as the guy is smoking hot, and I am also giving the quietly productive Eric Hosmer ($4700) a shot hitting in Beantown.

This is it for making the finals of the Tout Wars Daily contest at FanDuel, as next week the tournament with the final 15 entries (which is actually 14 individuals with Adam Ronis making it twice, and could be 13 if Scott Engel makes the finals for a second time this cycle).

I am still a good 50 points off just second place (Engel has a good 20 point lead) although I can rest secure knowing I made the finals with a solid May performance.

Still, I play a lot more for pride than anything, and I am going with the guy who pushed me towards the finals, Gio Gonzalez ($9600) facing Milwaukee with a low .304 wOBA this season, and the worst RC+ (85) in the Majors at this point in the season.

As for hitters, I trusted my Zen this time and grabbed Asdrubal Cabrera ($3300) and Kevin Kiermaier ($2500) facing young Chris Bassitt in Oakland, and going with a pair of Yankees, the lately hot Carlos Beltran ($3500) and lefty Brett Gardner ($2900) going against the hard throwing Carlos Carrasco
