There are indeed a lot of good starting pitching choices today if you are playing for bragging rights at the Tout Wars Challenge, at FanDuel (you can beat a bunch of the Touts in a daily contest with just a $2 entry fee).

Since there are again weather issues facing Philadelphia, Baltimore, Detroit, Cincy, and Atlanta, I am staying local to the Bay Area, giving the very consistent Sonny Gray ($10,100) facing the up-and-down Rockies at home. While we are at the Coliseum, since southpaw Rubby De La Rosa is facing the green and gold, I am going Josh Phegley ($3100), and finishing the local stack is Mark Canha ($2700) who should also get the nod against a left-handed hurler.

Finally, finishing out my flychaser are another lower priced Brandon Moss ($3000) facing Erasmo Ramirez, and then finishing a little more expensively with George Springer ($3700) going against the up-and-down Danny Duffy. 

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

Pitching, pitching, where is the pitching?


Monday in DFS brings us an anomaly where Lance McCullers, Clay Buchholz and Mike Leake are the highest priced pitchers at $5900. The challenge on Monday is to find the two pitchers that will do the least amount of damage.


Nathan Karns ($4600) has allowed only two earned runs in his past three games. The downside on Karns is that he has not gone beyond six innings in his past eight starts. C.J. Wilson’s ($5200) last start was a clunker, but his two starts prior were excellent. 


With only $9800 total on pitching, you will be able to set a virtual all-star hitting lineup. I am starting with Mike Trout ($6300) and Nolan Arenado ($5800). I mistakenly backed off from Arenado on Sunday against Madison Bumgarner and it cost me. 


Good luck mining your way through the pitching challenge that Monday gives us. 


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

FScore-160x320Well, it looks like the sun is shining all over the Majors, save in St. Louis where the Cubs and Cards might have to deal with some summer showers.

It is also a day with a few front line starting pitchers are going, including Madison Bumgarner ($9300, and whom my mate Lord Zola loves against the Rockies) and David Price ($9200), along with the now somewhat suspicious Felix Hernandez ($9300) for the Mastersball 50/50 Challenge.

I am going top flight, however, grabbing Chris Archer ($9600, who also graces my Tout Wars roster), tying him to Mike Fiers ($5900). Friers is still sort of under the radar, but he has 89 strikeouts over 80 frames, and has allowed more than three runs only once over his last nine starts, so ideally the pair will give me innings and whiffs. Wins would simply be the cherry on top.

The Bay Area has had a couple of really solid back-up catchers grab some limelight, and with Norichiki Aoki injured, Bruce Bochy is moving towards playing Andrew Susac ($1900) who has hit safely over his last eight starts, and who is getting a chance to play while Bruce Bochy shuffles his troops in the wake of the Norichika Aoki injury.

That leaves a little moolah to stack Todd Frazier ($5900), and Brandon Phillips ($4400) against untested Mets lefty Steven Matz (I know Z has warned us not to gamble against the rookie arms this year, but I am thinking these vets are savvy enough to at least grab a walk).

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

FScore-160x320Pinch-hitting today for Lawr, I'll be representing the site in the Mastersball 50/50 at FantasyScore. Even with Giancarlo Stanton, I like Clayton Kershaw ($9400) as a cash game anchor but without the slugger in the lineup, it's an absolute no-brainer, especially since the lanky lefty is only $300 more than Masahiro Tanaka.

Speaking of Tanaka, I don't like him in cash today since he faces the explosive Houston Astros, though I have no issue using him in a tournament. In lieu of Tanaka, I want to save some cap space and still get a fairly safe option locked in so we'll count on a bounce-back from Charlie Morton ($4800). PNC Park suppresses runs and the Braves are missing key cog Freddie Freeman.

Saving some bucks on my second arm frees up some room to use the high-priced Buster Posey ($5300) as he'll bat clean-up against a mediocre southpaw in Chris Rusin along with Miguel Cabrera ($6000), hitting third against the left-handed punching bag known as John Danks.

Even with a cheap Morton salted in, I still need another low-priced player so we'll use Ryan Rua ($2000), who's been hitting second against southpaws and the Blue Jays are calling up lefty Matt Boyd for a spot start.

There's only one way to see who else I'm using and that's to join the Mastersball 50/50 at FantasyScore

Truth is I have not checked the standings the last few weeks, mostly because my DFS teams here at the FanDuel Tout Wars Daily have been so awful that I am sure to be out of the running this cycle.

There are some great twirlers out there today, but since my point total is low in the tourney, I am going with John Lackey ($8600), hoping he can throw for seven innings and simply whiff a hitter per frame.

As for batters, I took a minor stack with Andrew McCutchen ($4200) and Josh Harrison ($3300), who are facing rookie Williams Perez. Perez has good surface numbers, but hitters are getting on to the tune of a .324 OBP and Williams has a 1.377 WHIP thus far, so I am hoping (praying?) some of the dancing with runners on that Perez has been getting will come to an end.
