FScore-160x320These computers are fussy things. I have a tendency to pick a cursory roster for my  Mastersball 50/50 Challenge team in the evening when I play, then review more closely the next morning, tweak, and write this piece.

Which is indeed what I did yesterday morning,  a bit hurried as I had a 9:10 tee time with my friends Eric, Dave, and Scott.

Well, of course in the middle of my posting suddenly my laptop rebooted for a Windows update, and the truth is, that really did not cause any problems. However, I did not save the FantasyScore updated roster (with Kolten Wong, Carlos Santana, and Matt Carpenter, among others) so instead of a nice in the middle-of-the-pack finish, we were down at the bottom.

So, do indeed double check this stuff and don't make that rookie mistake!

Anyway, there are indeed a couple of pitchers I do favor today, and topping my list is A.J. Burnett ($7500) going against the Phils, pairing him with Corey Kluber ($8500) against the Tigers. Of course Chris Sale ($8300), Sonny Gray ($8800), and Max Scherzer ($9400) are all reasonable picks, and at the bottom end, Alfredo Simon ($6200) and Eduardo Rodriguez ($5800) could be fine plays.

Because there are a lot of good pitchers, but in looking at the matchups I favor the ever steady Shin-Soo Choo ($4100), Avisail Garcia ($4100), and rounding out my outfield Giancarlo Stanton ($6100) to drive my (definitely saved) squad into some redemption from yesterday's screw-up.

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

FScore-160x320Coming off a Friday night where Felix Hernandez killed a lot of us on the Daily path reminds us that the that DFS can indeed be a fickle relationship. However, that does not diminish the fact that today is indeed another day for the  Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

And, despited the knocks King Felix might have endured yesterday, I feel ok going for the throat with Chris Archer ($9500) who has simply been deadly all season. As a secondary starter there are a lot of fine choices, including Gerrit Cole ($8900 against the Phillies), Zack Greinke ($8700 against the Padres) and Jacob deGrom ($7900 against the Braves), but I am going with Shelby Miller ($8600) against those very same Mets. 

On the batting side of the dish, Justin Verlander makes his first start of the season against the Indians, and that could make for some good plays as Verlander tries to get his sea legs following his first prolonged period of struggle.

I also like the Cardinals against Jeremy Guthrie, meaning Kolton Wong ($5000) and Matt Carpenter ($5700) get a nod on the high end, while on the low side I am playing switch-hitting outfielder Aaron Hicks ($2900) against Colby Lewis.

Games start early today, and check the weather in Baltimore, Chicago, Boston, Pittsburgh, and St. Louis (when exactly does summer begin in the country at large?).

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

Tout Wars Daily Picks for 6/12/15 PDF Print E-mail

Week two of the Friday FanDuel game and the promise of three more Tout Wars qualifiers for the August tournament with $2000 worth of prizes is here. Don't forget that every Tuesday you can play the Touts and kick our butts. Check in Tuesdays for the URL to this bargain ($2 entry) DFS contest with the best of bragging rights.

There is indeed a slate of great starting pitching to choose from today among Clayton Kershaw ($12,000), Felix Hernandez ($11,900), David Price ($10,900) and Madison Bumgarner ($10,600). 

Similarly, there are some interesting potential bargain pitchers like Ubaldo Jimenez ($7400), who seems to be on the upside of a Saberhagenmetric swing, along with Mike Fiers ($7400), who seems to have regained some of his second-half form from last year.

Still, I am favoring King Felix against the slumping 'Stros who do indeed like to swing the bat.

Because there are almost as many questionable starting hurlers as good ones, this became an easy path (if there is such a thing) allowing me to mini-stack a couple of games. First, Asdrubal Cabrera ($2700) and Evan Longoria ($3100) are nice plays against lefty John Danks, while Gregory Polanco ($3000) and Neil Walker ($2700) make similarly nice plays against Kevin Correia, making his first start after a couple of seasons worth of getting battered around in Minnesota.

After having virtually no quality pitching choices on Thursday, we see the aces come out on Friday.

Clayton Kershaw ($9200) leads the way after scoring 60 points in his previous three games. It will be hard to pass up Felix Hernandez ($9300) against the Astros, where he could break the record for single game strikeouts. The problem becomes the Kershaw/King combo will suck up 37% of your budget. Danny Salazar ($7500) gives you a little breathing room.

Finding cheap bats is the challenge for Friday. Consider some Rays going against lefty John Danks, such as Steven Souza ($4200) and Logan Forsythe ($4300). I am also looking to work some Pirates hitters into my lineup going against the Phillies new signee Kevin Correia.

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

FScore-160x320On Thursday, I will be ready to take you on from my regular spot - the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge GPP contest with $135 in prizes available for just a $5 entry fee. 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, the options are a bit thin. I like Julio Teheran, but the Braves are playing a day game so are excluded from the pool.

The Mets are having serious offensive troubles as we saw the other night with Chris Heston’s no-hitter. Tim Lincecum’s ($6600) turn is tonight and with more consistent mechanics and a reasonable price, he is on my roster. But to be honest, I like Washington’s Tanner Roark ($4700) even better against the Milwaukee hitters. In his only other career outing against the Brew Crew, Roark allowed just one run over seven innings of work.

I am going off the beaten path with my hitting spotlight player today. Cincinnati catcher Brayan Pena ($2900) has been around for over a decade, so he isn't sneaking up on anyone, but is quietly hitting .307 this season. Pena is swinging a hot bat, having gone six for his last 10, and with a game at Wrigley Field, I am hoping his roll will continue another day.

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