    Ugh Scherzer what a waste of salary…especially with that garbage bullpen. I’m sick of paying up for pitching.

    Meanwhile Ross pitches a gem and was dirt cheap.

    Guess that’s not going to help me since he is over 30% owned.

    springer sure is a black hole in the HOU lineup today

    Guess I may cash after all but one if those days where my guys get on base and the guy behind hits them home with a bomb… could be worse of course but had 4 of those already today in my lineup

    Edit: not so fast lost two players to double switches already… aaaaahhh

  • MrMadness001

    The Nationals bullpen is horrible.

  • NYGfan1983

    199 pts best team and i didnt even put frazier in that LU….

    sigh

    Asdrubal Cabrera may have just cost me a lot of money robbing Simmons of a bases clearing double.

    That was indeed painful to behold.

  • Lathum

    Mazara just got me now costing fletcher an rbi single. Have him at 7% on a three game slate. Those two plays is a 24 point swing and several hundred dollars.

    Vogelbach! What a play. S/o to the mlb data detectives league

    Thank u biatch-mo-land for the afternoon slate SOLO DONG

    that feeling when you enter the $150 DK 3-max contest and cash all 3 lineups…..and a bot 9 walk-off Altuve RBI BB puts you into 1st place in both your $1 100-man winner-take-all contests!

    Congrats. I can’t do DK anymore. Their pricing is insane this year. Scored 190 on FD and 99 on DK smh

    Their pricing was really bad last year (IMO) and it doesn’t look that great this year. I don’t know why more players aren’t calling them out. Their algorithm overvalue some hitters. It’s impossible to field a decent lineup if you pay up for pitching.

    People singing praises of cheap pitching now, but that won’t last long. Regression will hit the pretenders soon enough.

    Everybody has to deal with the same pricing, do they not? I don’t see why this is an issue.

    Well. I think when pricing is structured in a way to force everyone to make less than desirable choices, it tilts the scale even more to players that enter 150 lineups or 300 or 450 syndicate. Because the differentiation is no longer a contrarian strategy or a choice based on personal analytics. It becomes a necessity.

    The best thing to do is to play single entry or 3-max… if I enter the 150 I don’t complain about the disadvantage, but it’s undeniable

    Speaking of pricing…. was thinking of putting a lineup in showdown and if you look at that it is basically a perfect example

    You can either play one subpar hitter and a reliever that may or may not play, or you have to play 3-4 subpar hitters
    So you either need to have monster luck or max enter and work all the combinations

    Sure it makes more fun to watch the game and may still throw $10 in it, but is basically 99% donatjng
