    I called Reynolds correctly. Figured he’d fly under the radar. I have reynolds, story and Arenado paired. Along with trout, jones, and some sneaky plays.

    May the baseball gods be with me tonight. Skaggs needs to pitch his effing heart out and knock down this Carrasco b.s.

    Speaking as a Red Sox fan, I hope they never allow Steven Wright to play in a baseball game for them again.

    I’ve got Kiki, Reynolds a low owned diamondbacks stack and Skaggs with Carrasco. Need Skaggs to do good and this should be a good night!

    Damn, the lineup I wanted for cash was $100 to much. So I went from hedges to caleb joseph, which is looking good for cash.

    Had i played joseph on my best tournament team id be top 5 in the saturday slugfest…..hopefully hedges can hit another dong sometime tonight

  • FanBallAddict

    Loving the Stanton HR. Have him in my DK lineup today and also own him in a couple year long leagues.

  • firepimp

    I’m looking decent so far holding the minimum cash line so far at 84 points with my pitcher Skaggs just starting and Trout.

    I have Dietrich in also with a 0, hopefully he’s my sleeper pick that gets me a nice 10 to 20 points and I’d be grateful.

  • firepimp

    Skaggs just got taken deep, not sure by who. Come on kid settle down. I need you tonight.

  • KindGuy

    Fucking Royals… unbelievable.

    No he gave up a walk and two singles but threw over 20 fucking pitches in the first. Did get a few strike outs so hopefully that’s the only hiccup tonight.

    Fuarkkkk Blackmon goes yard. Faded him for Gordon. UGHHHH

    It’s what makes baseball dfs difficult and fun imo.

    There’s honestly no tutorial, baseball is luck of the draw and pitcher versus batter matchups on the night, their history if batter vs pitchers, the weather, are they hot, are they cold?, what park are they playing in, is it their birthday, did they get laid last night, injuries, herpes sores breakout?, what time did they go to bed, did they just fly from the east coast to the west or vice versa.

    Baseball is baseball, there’s shit to help make educated guesses. But like story last year, thames this year and other things people break out and go up and down.

    If I can suggest anything practice with head to head games first. Even if they’re cheap for a few weeks. Then ask in the forum what the tournament cashlines were around afterwards.

    Safer options and possibly make some money without wasting it while you learn this shit show of fun.

    Was Kennedy that bad of a pick? Sheesh, I thought I’d get more than 1 strikeout when I rostered him.

    monday night we get jason vargas 3-0 0.44ERA, vs the whitesox

    how fitting would it be to have all the regression come in one night and the sox score 10 on him.

    He’s good, 1K seems odd.

    I stayed away because he gives 48%FB, 37%HC, 1.43 HR/9, and it’s a hitter’s park with 18mph winds blowing out.

    At the same time, I respect his pitching, so I also didn’t take TEX bats, because they suck cold donkey balls recently.

    How’s that for being non-committal? :)

    What happened to Kike?

  • FanBallAddict

    Ramirez with a HR! Three today for my lineup! :)

  • JENSGT

    141 points currently and still worried about not cashing. Crazy night.
