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!

As I scour the near-full slate of games for Monday, I am having trouble putting together an offensive lineup that I am happy with. I am certainly going to continue rolling out Devon Travis ($2800) at second base until either the price catches up to his production or he cools down significantly.

While I am unsure on hitters, I have locked into two pitchers on Monday that I fully expect to put up stud numbers. David Price ($8900) was awful last week against the Yankees, but he comes back to face the Twins. 

James Shields ($7000) gets the strikeout prone Houston Astros in San Diego. I do expect the Astros to keep the game close with their own stud Collin McHugh ($5000) on the mound.

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

The Zen versus Excel experiment has indeed begun between Lord Z and me. Todd and I had an extended discussion yesterday whereby he was debunking relying up Batter versus Pitcher (BvP) stats, suggesting the sample size is small, and that streaks and isolated success are not particularly good predictors. 

In fact, he wrote this fine piece for our friends over at Fantasy Alarm discussing just that topic.

I don't disgree with Z, although at some point push comes to shove, and while I do believe in the numbers, I also believe in trusting our hunches and instincts, no matter how anecdotal and silly that might seem.

Of course there will be more on this, but at least my picks of Dustin Pedroia and Alejandro De Aza yesterday worked out ok.

So, in that vein, I would take Gerardo Parra ($1900) as my bargain FantasyScore selection for today. Why? Well, over 17 at-bats against Lance Lynn ($6100), Parra is .471-2-2. 

I also like hit machine Jose Altuve ($6000) against Oakland Southpaw Drew Pomeranz (ok, it is hard to not like Altuve against anyone, right?).

Finally, I am on the Anthony DeSclafani ($3500) bandwagon, with a young pitcher facing a young Cubs team where today the weather at Great American Ballpark is supposed to be mostly sunny.

Which is what I hope your DFS foray is today.

Remember, you can take us on at the Mastersball50/50 Challenge at FantasyScore!

A rugged Friday on all fronts, mostly thanks to Shane Greene, who lost his magic in a major way, but the beauty of baseball, as we all know, is the eternal optimism of next pitch, next at-bat, next inning, and of course, tomorrow.

Well, tomorrow is today, and today I picked a couple of hitters who might well be under the radar, but point to some big success.

To start, though, I am banking that Matt Harvey ($7700) will help avenge the Yankees whipping of Jacob deGrom on Friday (last year's ROY barely fared better than Greene!), and pick up some whiffs while his mates take advantage of the "still learning to be crafty" C.C. Sabathia.

And, before we look at the outfield, if you are looking for a second sacker, Dustin Pedroia ($4400) has hit Baltimore's Wei-Yin Chen to the tune of .519-0-5 over 27 at-bats, while on the other side of the diamond, Alejandro De Aza ($2400) has clobbered Justin Masterson for .324-0-4 line over 34 at-bats.

Finally, Denard Span ($3100) is back full-time with his National mates, and though his sample against Tom Koehler is small (eight at-bats), the flychaser is hitting .378-0-1, making him an interesting play.

Don't forget you can duke it out with Rob Leibowitz, Marc Meltzer, and me at the FantasyScore Mastersball 50/50 Challenge, beat us, and brag to your buds!
