    Have $2300 for my last spot on FD – looking at Flores, Reddick, M. Rojas (leading off vs Vargas), Daniel Robertson (batting 3rd), or G. Hampson (batting 2nd). Thoughts?

    Rojas or Robertson for me.

  • frugal

    Can Mancini keep it up tonight? BAL is looking better than projected so far.

  • monarch

    Verlander has some really high K upside vs all those Rangers LHB

  • skleni

    Anyone else concerned about Sale after that shaky first outing?

    I’ve got one stack against him

  • mbunner23

    Anybody playing Vargas as cash SP2 tonight?

    I’d much rather trust Marco at almost the same price. Greinke should be the chalk above him for SP2.

    He could be the GPP winner tbh —

    FD’s GPP options were so pathetic today — a $4.5K prize pool $2 stolen base….they aren’t doing the $2 BEAN BALL again, no clue there —

    I’ve got 2 main LUs and before LOCK i’ll do 2 more — but I’m not rostering X-SALE — I’d do a stack against him b4 I pitched him.

    Of course, I also lucked into Aaron Brooks so who knows………

    P.S. — If all my DK guys (batters) are in I’m not changing my SPs I picked last night — rolling a BERRIOS/Sucklander in one and Little Marco Gonzo with some Cash$$$ner AYDS in the otha

    I like him on Yahoo as the best looking cheap pitcher I could stomach, less of an issue paying up on DK.

    I don’t even mess with cash this early in the year, but I play around with and build some cash like entries in GPP’s to get a feel for how they do. Honestly feel like in cash you should just run Berrios/Snell, then plug in Rojas and Yandy Diaz. Both are incredibly cheap, leading off, and not in bad spots. Then build up and out from there. Cano, Nimmo, McKinney, even Drury all fit the build and should be fine too. Probably plug in Narvaez at C and should be able to spend up for a bat or 2 depending on high you go.

    GPP angle to consider is stacking Padres and taking out the highest owned SP2

    Um…that’s why it is a GPP strategy. Hardly anyone is even considering it.

    Fading Greinke and the Padres. The D-Backs bats on the other hand…

    Using Sale as the leverage play. Scherzer still the top play. In order I like Scherzer, Berrios, Ryu, Greinke, Sale.

    Hopefully enough people got burned by Toronto yesterday to decrease ownership. Chalky offensive options besides Toronto is probably Seattle and Houston. I like TB and AZ as leverage stacks.

    I just don’t see how the Phillies don’t put up at least 10 runs.

  • monarch

    Not sure how many of you live in the mid atlantic but it is raw out today. Coastal NE type storm with wind blowing in. This is perfect Max conditions if the game plays…he will go right at them and their high K rates…might give up a HR but probably Ks double digits without issue.

    that game is definitely playing – it’s green.

    what do you mean? Green as in radar? From what I have heard…the Nats have postponed games for less

    Yep, got burned several times last season with games that look like they should play getting postponed.
