Good pitching is scarce today as we look at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, with no true aces on whom to hang your hat. So, I am going with a pair of AL candidates with good strikeout rates in Jake Odorizzi ($6800) and Drew Hutchison  ($4500). Odorizzi is matching up against a fairly weak Braves lineup while Hutchison stands a fair chance at a win with Jered Weaver a shell of his former self.

On the hitting front, Colorado starters agianst Severino Gonzalez of the Phillies (meaning Troy Tulowitzki ($5100)at home is a good play), Royals starters are a good play against  Mr. Hittable himself, Jason Marquis.

I also went with some left/right match-ups, startng Bryce Harper ($6300) versus Adam Warren and Brian Dozier ($4900) facing. Jeff Locke. Finally, Matt Carpenter ($5400) has a good history against Bartolo Colon. While it hurts as a Mets' fan that Colon has been struggling over his past few starts, I'm not above taking the opportunity to use the Cardinals third-sacker to face him.

It may be easier and simpler to play FantasyScore on a slow day like yesterday, a day with a small pool of players to choose from. Not too much head scratching needed. But, I think that days like today, with a full MLB schedule are much more fun. There are 30 pitchers playing today! Let’s have some fun at FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Talking about pitchers, my theory is that a good one, one with a strong history of strikeouts, will perform well in DFS. Consequently, I tend to spend a large amount of money on pitchers. Johnny Cueto ($8900) already has 56 K’s this year. He cannot be ignored but he is pitching in KC. I do not find this matchup deserving all that money. Michael Wacha ($7600) has less K’s than Cueto. However, he is at home against the Mets and has a nice 5-0 record. I do like him today. There are also cheaper alternatives worth mentioning. The most recent outings by Jose Quintana ($4900) and Anibal Sanchez ($6000) were impressive. They both won, with Quintana striking out ten and Sanchez whiffing eight, and they play at home today. You may want to consider one or both of these players if you are close to the budget ceiling.

The choice of hitters is a bit more problematic. It seems that weak teams are up against weak pitchers, but a game that might produce hits and runs is the Texas/Boston matchup. Both teams were off on Monday. Either Prince Fielder ($4600) or David Ortiz ($4900) is a valid option for the 1B position. Outfielders not to ignore from this game are Shin-Soo Choo ($3100) and Mookie Betts ($4900). Both are relatively inexpensive.

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.
