Week Three of the Tout Wars Challenge, at FanDuel where you can take on the Touts for a measly $2 (that is less than a bottle of water), with the chance of not just earning a 100% $2 profit in addition to telling the world that you are a better DFS player than we are. I mean, how can you miss?

Since pitching is indeed everything, I looked at the match-ups and teams as carefully as I could, and though the great Max Scherzer ($12000) is out there, as are Johnny Cueto ($10,700), A.J. Burnett ($9400), Shelby Miller ($9100), and Zack Greinke ($9900), but I am going a little under the radar with Lance Lynn ($8800).

Lynn, who has 67 whiffs over his 60 innings this year, is pitching at home, against a Brewers team that is among the leaders in strikeouts, along with posting a team .289 OBP and .678 OPS, meaning so far, even when the Brew Crew makes contact, it doesn't amount to much.

I like Freddie Freeman ($3200), a lefty hitter with good on-base numbers (.363 this year) against right-handed Josh Collmenter, against whom lefties are hitting .308 (though .309 versus righties) who has allowed 70 hits over 57 innings, including nine big flies (four by left-handed hitters).

I like Alex Rodriguez ($3100) as a veteran against the debut of the Royals Mike Montgomery, and in the outfield, I am looking at Shin-Soo Choo ($3200) against the erratic Jeff Samardzija in Arlington, and Josh Reddick, also at home, against the Tigers and Alfredo Simon.

Have fun with your daily games, and remember again say you beat Lord Zola, Ron Shandler, Larry Schechter, and me! Play the Tout Wars Challenge!

Those in the know say that a team in the money by June 1 has historically an 85% chance to be among the winners by the end of the season. Let’s then celebrate or, alternatively, drown in sorrows by playing FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Either way, let’s have some fun. Today’s games offer both expensive pitchers, e.g. Max Scherzer ($9400) and Johnny Cueto ($8900), and inexpensive ones in Chad Bettis ($4600) and Mike Wright ($4700). I like to put my money on the pitching side and Max Scherzer, no matter the cost, should not be ignored. Considering rumors of Johnny Cueto’s potential elbow injury and the recent stellar outings by Bettis, my first choice for pitchers today is an atypical expensive/inexpensive combo of Scherzer/Bettis.

This selection leaves us more money for the batters than what we usually have. Let’s spend it on Nelson Cruz ($6100). Speaking of going against C.C. Sabathia in Seattle, Mike Zunino ($2900) is a low cost gamble.

Then there are those Detroit Tigers, always dangerous at home and going against the inconsistent Kendall Graveman. Detroit players are generally not cheap, but the choice of Bettis is giving us some wiggle room. I think that it is time to splurge on Miguel Cabrera ($6000).

Sometimes you just never know in this crazy game of baseball. Going into Sunday, I was not sure that John Danks was good enough to shut down my son’s high school team. Then he goes out and pitches a complete game shutout. Then, Madison Bumgarner, perfect through four innings, fails to make it through seven innings with the lead.

But the joy of DFS is that nothing that happened with you or your daily roster matters on Monday.

Monday is a day when many of baseball's stud pitchers take the hill. King Felix Hernandez ($9300) heads the list as Seattle is home against the Yankees. While Clayton Kershaw ($8400) would normally be of strong consideration, pitching in Colorado points me in a different direction. Jacob deGrom ($7500) at San Diego is likely to be my second choice. Gerrit Cole ($8400) at San Francisco and Garrett Richards ($6900) at home against Tampa Bay are also considerations. With the Giants hitting much better since Hunter Pence returned, Richards appears to be a stronger play than Cole.

Even under normal circumstances, I would have been looking at Cardinals hitters against the Brewers and Matt Garza, but the extra inning game on Sunday forced Garza into extended action, so the Brewers starter is TBD. Play hitters accordingly.

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

FScore-160x320Time to finish off May with another shot at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

Once again, inclimate weather threatens the Eastern Seaboard (New York, Baltimore and Philadelphia), and the midwest (Chicago and Cincinatti), so keep an eye on the Weatherman and your rosters.

For the most part, we have seen the monster starters Friday and Saturday, but Madison Bumgarner ($8500), in stride and starting against an at best erratic Braves team at home at ATT, is probably as good a set of variables as a pick can get.

As for hitting, there are a couple of games that just seemed like offensive bonanzas all around: Boston/Texas (Joe Kelly v. Wandy Rodriguez in Arlington), making Prince Fielder ($5800) a nice bet, as well as Mookie Betts ($4400) and Dustin Pedroia ($4100).

The other contest that looks like it might have some sticking is the White Sox (John Danks, 2-4, 5.69) going against the Astros' Roberto Hernandez (2-3, 4.77). That makes Alexei Ramirez ($3400) a nice moderate gamble to help the financing of MadBum.

FScore-160x320Working through the Saturday party at the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge I am looking first at starting pitching, and it is very tough to ignore Michael Wacha ($7800) and Tyson Ross ($6800) atop the heap. If you do purchase Wacha, keep an eye on the weather map, though, as rain is anticipated in St. Louis, Chicago, New York, Cincinatti, Baltimore and Philadelphia.

Although, another interesting, somewhat lesser option is the Pale Hose's Jose Quintana ($4900) pitching against the Astros. Quintana has been iffy, but he can indeed whiff hitters. Irrespective, if you need to gamble on points, that is where I would go.

There are a few fun hitting chances against ostensibly weaker pitchers in Jorge De La Rosa (1-2, 6.51), Jeremy Hellickson (2-2, 5.33), Erasmo Ramirez (2-2, 6.62) and rookie Chi Chi Gonzalez, making his first Major League start in Texas.

I personally like a couple of Marlins right-handers--Giancarlo Stanton ($6200) and Martin Prado ($3000)-- against lefty Jon Niese, but with the weather concerns all over, I will be checking my roster and making updates up to the very end.
