    I think Reds/pirates looks worst but I will probably avoid both and pivot if Tigers sound optimistic. I like some runs to be scored there.

    Gotta throw Graveman in at least one lineup. He’s too cheap not to take a chance.

    Sunny in KC..should not be an issue.

    Scattered at gametime, but short burst and small.

    I may just head to the ballpark myself….

    what do you guys do for cash games at least? (can be strategic to get low owned guys in GPP)

    cincy and det seem to have a definite chance for rain – do you just draw a line through these players?

    It’s the first game so we should have a good idea. You shouldn’t risk your starter in a game that could be delayed by rain. If the game should get in and maybe just delayed, you can use position players and sometimes beneficial if starter comes out. On get away days, though, I would think they are more likely to cancel than wait it out. That said, I am avoiding the cincy game.

    Argh, until I looked at that forecast I so wanted to use Greene.

  • bedwards

    First week of baseball dfs for me has been a blast. I have another newbie question – is leaving 1200 in salary on the table a bad idea in cash games? Is there an acceptable range or should match ups and projections be the most important factor?

    Reds might be able to get 5 in here in Cincinnati. Rain isn’t supposed to hit here til around 2pm, but still risky.

    Cincinnati looks fine for the game and don’t the tigers play indoors

    Is this normal?

    I had 4 guys combine for like .75 points and I almost won the whole tournament…

    This is not like NBA at all.

    If you have a guy 3.5 % owned and hits 3 HRs AND your pitcher gets you 20 pts that’s pretty much going to guarantee that you cash. But yes, MLB is quite different to NBA. There are going to be days where you have Trout, Miggy or Abreu in can’t miss matchups, etc go 0-4 and some backup no hit SS is going to win someone a tourny going 3-3 with 3 bloop RBI singles.

  • bucherpsu08

    Picking on Martinez looks like a good idea. That A’s lineup may not be out before lock though.

  • squidkill

    Tigers play indoors??

  • billydaKidd7

    How do we kno if there is rainout going hard on early games

  • unholyshorty

    If you look at weather it looks like it’s gonna start raining at like 3/4

    I live near downtown and it’s in the high 60’s already today, but very overcast. Storms rolling in early afternoon. I like a lot of people in that game and the Tigers game, but it’s risky.

    Tigers definitely do not play indoors. The Lions do.

    20 mph winds in KC blowing out though? Might have to lock and load Abreu. Danks has done surprisingly well against KC in his career, especially last season. KC rolls out a lot of lefties.

    I like Alcides and Cain.
