    Not going tricky, SP1 is Gerrit Cole. It’s cold and the wind is blowing in at Wrigley, so I’ll use Adbert Alzolay as one of my SP2s.

    It’s a great little 8 game slate. So many things you can do with pitching. Cole seems like SP1, yet Buehler and Darvish have at least a fighting chance to outscore him, although not the likely outcome.

    Alzolay is in play yet I like Kikuchi slightly better. Yet both very solid SP2 options. Or pair em up and load the big bats.

    I like the slate a lot tonight , which means…

    Exactly. I have Cole – Alzolay, Cole – Kikuchi, and Alzolay – Kikuchi to spend up a little more on bats.

    Both FD ($4) and DK ($5) have a 100k to first contest. I know the winning lineup will be like almost perfect. I wasn’t planning on playing but I got a ticket from DK ,so I guess I am now.

    If you were trying to be contrarian, do yall prefer going with a low own stack or trying to get 1 offs right?

  • biga0787

    So Joey gallo much like any other day will hit a bomb or so 4 times. Which will it be?

  • ifthethunder

    Also DK has a free showdown contest, NYYTEX.

    Darvish or Buehler for SP2.

    I like SD LHB vs Jon Gray who is worse away from Coors.

    I am?

    I haven’t watched an NBA game, outside of the Pistons here and there in weeks. Really, really don’t care. Sort of kind of intrigued by Warriors/Lakers on Wednesday, solely because I want the Lakers to lose.

    Much, much more intrigued by this MLB slate here.

    Vegas thinks both are pretty good if you’re playing 2 SP1s. (Which I think I’ll do as well, I usually have one lineup going for Double Dubs.)

    But Madbum has been on fire lately. (Check Madison Bumgarner for his last few starts.) So Yu Darvish might have a better shot at the win. Especially if you want to play SD bats anyways.

    No Coors. No Toronto/FLA game. Loving this slate.

    Alzolay has a Josh Bell problem. So I’ll be using some Bell in non Alzolay lineups where I need to save at first base

    Don’t be cheap max out in the four point play nba tomorrow and also spend some money on the 50k to 1st tonight

    Big-Boy slate.. $5 Supa-Knuckleball – gonna be in for 6, Cole/Darvy with my low-owned SEA Bats! On at least one.. Bomb Mize! Gotta go N Y Y stack on one.. and as usual will play all leadoff, 2 and 3 hitters scattered about. And one one I say Bomb-Kikuchi! Zero-owned DET bats.

    If Kikuchi is going to really be 40%+ owned, there is certainly leverage in using the 2-aces construction
    But then of course you need your salary savers to come through to some extent and the most expensive stacks not to go completely nuts

    I think I am going to take a little break and in a couple of hours I will decide if to play the lotto with 150 or stick to my usual 4-5 lineups build that has been doing well

    Thanks for that heads-up. Right now I have the even cheaper Miguel Sano at 1st, but I have the room in some to make the switch. (Plus I’m a Nats-Wiz-CAPS-WFT fan anywho.)

    Bomb Mize!

    Send Casey to his early de-Mize? I’m on board. 4,200 for Mitch Haniger seems way too low.

    Oh Yea.. Haniger, Keley, and some Marmo-lejos. Lol. Whitey. Hopefully lineup comes out by 645pm

    Joey Gallo BvP vs Cole is basically his career enhanced…. 22 AB 16K 4 HRs…. only 4 plate appearances not resulting in a K or a HR, 2 BBs, 1 H and 1 out

    I have my lineups set (pretty much) until a couple of teams announce 5 minutes after lock they are sitting the entire starting 9. Oh oops that’s the NBA. Never mind.

    It’s not all that hard to do a White Sox/Angels stack and still like your pitching……
    Really liking that build as well as a Twins/Sox 4×4
