    Guys,

    Premium subscriber here – last year, things really started clicking for me in MLB. Took down a couple of single entries and was feeling pretty confident. This year has been a little slower for me but things have been turning in the right direction as of late.

    I feel like Cheese and JVZ articles are great and I use them daily as a dummy check.

    My question is – has there ever been any post-mortem on RG ownership percentages? It seems like they vary wildly, and I think I’m putting too much stock into them. For example, I’ve come off optimal plays due to fear of ownership when they come in much lower than expected.

    I watched the video (forget whose) where one of the Grinders explained why ownership manages so much to him. “When I win, I win all the money.”

    To me this is much more for people who are doing MME. When you win, you need to win BIG to make up for the min cash or losing days with all that daily $$$ put on the line.

    I am not one of them, so I just shoot for the highest DK scores I think I can get without worrying about who is chalk or not.

    Not confident in much of anything in this early slate… not sure if its the coffee not kicking in or the slate itself… thinking I like Reds, Yankees, Twins, Nats. but pitching? Hard to stick to my recent format with the characters pitching today… Taillon, Corbin, Lynn?

    Lynn, Taillon it is…. with most stacks need Maldonado in the lineup as he is free

  • ecallarman

    I can tell you this about the early slate, it’s a tough slate for me and I am not trusting any pitchers. Matter of fact I am not going with any conventional picks. Just selected the poorest hitting teams and let that select my pitchers.

    As far as hitting, I am staying away from the Yankees and going west.

    Worked out for me last night as I stacked OAK and bet Balt.

    That Cubs lineup is weak and makes swapping Taillon to Castillo very tempting

  • ecallarman

    Yep, I am rolling with Castillo.

    I stuck with Taillon…. have a hard time taking pitchers in CIN, PHI, COL and now also “TOR, FL”

  • ecallarman

    I waffled back and forth but figured Tallions ownership would be higher, and I felt he had less upside. That’s why I stuck with Castillo.

  • ifthethunder

    Had no idea what to do in early slate either. For DK classic, my pitching is Duffy – Lynn in one lineup, Luzardo – McKenzie the other. Just a hedge but maybe I’ll get lucky with some hitters.

    Perez and Gomes both gone deep…. I am loaded with Maldonado to fit Lynn… gonna be hard

  • Supersharpie

    Thoughts on going Gomber/Gallo vs Newsome/Acuna on FD?

    Going the “cheap pitcher and expensive bats” route today.

  • Southie777

    Okay, so I’m a little buzzed and getting ready for the Derby, but if you’re playing FD, how do you not go Canning? I feel like I’m taking crazy pills! What is with that price? And I’m a Sox fan and huge believer in E-Rod!

    Don’t know.

    I’m stacking Mariners.

    Canning isn’t that good. Mariners seem to blowing up chalk pitchers on the regular.

    I hear ya. Definitely throwing a few Mariners stacks out there, too, but $6K is too cheap!

    Nah, it is. He’s not THAT bad and Mariners aren’t THAT good. I faded him though. Probably going to regret it.

    My main early slate lineup was doing so well…. but Moreland, Moose and Suarez have been worthless
