Gerrit Cole vs Mariners: $53
Well last night with Verlander didn’t go as planned, but luckily he was chalk. Bad starts happen to everyone and on some nights even aces don’t have it. I for one am not scared and going right back to Cole this evening.

    I will be interested to see what your line up looks like. I think you primarily just run one lineup or a very small variation of it. Usually a strong cash lineup, but I am having a hard time finding the cash lineup tonight. Good luck to all on your SP2 choices!

    Yeah, i typically run one main line, sometimes do a separate version for GPPs. On Yahoo, my strategy is typically to just let others make mistakes. Tonight is definitely a little tougher with SP2.
