A new month, a new week, a new day, and hopefully a new team will help drag me up from my ping-ponging team, which finished 20th Week 1, fourth Week 2, and 30th last week. So much for consistency.

I found grabbing a starting pitcher the really daunting chore within this week's roster moves. With Max Scherzer ($10,500) matching up against Matt Harvey ($10,300), I just did not feel comfortable with what could be a cosmic attrition of numbers. Plus, every time we have a dream pitching match-up, it seems the final score is 10-8, so I just eschewed that game.

Simiarly, I do like Scott Kazmir ($9200) a lot, but a lefty going at it in Rangerland--where Prince Fielder ($3100) and his mates have some pop--makes me  equally uncomfortable, so I went with the more obscure and unknown.

That would be the Giants' Chris Heston ($6100). I saw Heston pitch in the spring (in fact I drafted him on my reserves in LABR) and he has a good sinker and can cull the whiffs. Pitching at home, against an Angels team that has no book on him is where I am going, Mike Trout or not.

Conversely, a Southpaw (C.J. Wilson, $7800) at ATT makes me happy to spend the money parlayed by grabbing a cheaper starter on Buster Posey ( $3500) and another big stick, Troy Tulowitzki ($4300), also at home in Colorado.

Hopefully, they will bring me a top finish and some bacon, right?

I am starting my Friday FantasyScore Mastersball lineup with two high-priced pitchers who have produced big numbers for me early in the season.  Scott Kazmir ($6100) has been excellent over four starts, allowing a total of three earned runs while striking out 30.  Matt Harvey ($8800) has 31 strikeouts in 26.2 innings.  The downside is that the Mets are still playing a little safe with Harvey and a six-inning outing becomes the expectation, capping his points to some degree.

After spending a significant chunk of my budget on pitching, cheap hitters become the target.  Catcher A.J. Pierzynski ($2000) is in the midst of a remarkable hot streak and is way underpriced for the value he is producing.

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

For Thursday, my choice was again an easy one - the Mastersball Daily 50-50 GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. Today’s population is American League only - but hurry if you want to join as the Mastersball contests have been quickly filling up each day.

Here are a few of my picks.

Toronto’s Devon Travis has ignited MLB’s number one run-scoring offense and as such, the second baseman is $5200, but should continue to be worth every penny as long as he remains red hot.

I know Shelby Miller well from his time in St. Louis, and while he may never be a number one starter, the right hander is off to a good start with Atlanta. Today’s clincher is that he faces the struggling Cincinnati offense.

Speaking of that game, Braves shortstop Andrelton Simmons is a stealth pick. Up against Reds starter Mike Leake, Simmons has a career .500 average in 10 at-bats, making him a $2300 bargain.

Play along with us here.

Zack Greinke ($8500) has a strong track record vs. the Giants and is pitching at home while Carlos Martinez ($5000) faces a fairly weak Philly lineup.

I am also looking to exploit Nelson Cruz's ($5600) right-handed stroke and history vs. Wandy Rodriguez at Texas. Rick Porcello has been battling an acute problem of gopheritis lately, so using Jose Bautista ($5800) seemed wise. 

Colorado batters also have a good track record versus Josh Collmenter and Charlie Blackmon's $3900 price tag is a nice fit for my roster.

Good luck with your plays for the day, and remember, you can take on Lawr, Marc, Pasko, and me at the FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Fantasy Score Tuesday is here, and a full complement of games provides a few pretty good opportunities.

It is clear to me that a power pitcher, who can whiff hitters, is the way to go in this game, so I am happy to gamble on Michael Wacha ($6100) and his 3-0, 1.33 record against a Phillies team who has never seen him before.

On the hitter's side, though he has limited experience facing Ubaldo Jimenez, but I am happy to play Jose Abreu ($5900) and his .313-5-14 line for 2015 against a hurler who is, at best, erratic (do check for updates in case today's game is cancelled).

Finally, if you are looking for team play, the Tribe is facing Jeremy Guthrie, and a number of Cleveland batters (Michael Brantley $5300), Jason Kipnis ($4800), Brandon Moss ($3600) and Lonnie Chisenhall ($2300) have had terrific success against the Royals righty the past handful of seasons, small sample or not.

Remember, you can duke it out H2H with us at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge. Play us for the DFS bragging rights!
