    I need a homer tonight to keep the streak going!

  • PhoFever

    Finally the long MLB DFS break is over, and we are awarded with…. a 1 game slate. Another day in the deep depths of boredom.

  • hautalak

    Didn’t realize I broke my streak with the ASG :( That kind of sucks but oh well. And Pho you should be playing PGA!!!

  • realphipps

    It never crossed my mind that the ASG showdown counted against the streak.

    Maybe it doesn’t… (I think we could make a case for DK & tonight for that matter).

    Got some PGA lineups and I’ve been enjoying it lately. However, it doesn’t really satisfy my “Daily” fantasy cravings since you have to wait 4 long days for any sort of gratification.

    But that’s the “edge” lol For once I wasn’t degen enough to do those! Played tennis once though. EVen with how frustrating baseball can be it’s nice to have it back.

    As far as replacement pitchers/bullpen is there any real way to find out who is likely to play?

    Everyone should be available after the AS break

    Tough showdown to crack. Lynn’s the better pitcher but Houston the better offense. Good values on both sides too. Last time Lynn faced this lineup he pitched 6 shutout innings before giving up 2 HRs in the 7th. Framber won’t pitch past the 4-5 th innong

  • PhoFever

    Can’t decide whether I want Lynn in my lineup. Not a very experienced Showdown player – do you always take a pitcher in cash?

    Vegas line is down from earlier, for what it’s worth.

  • ASitar

    I’m doing a single bullet with Altuve @ C. I have Lynn. Texas lefties have been garbage lately and the Rangers bullpen has been trash so a Houston hitter will have a big AB in the last few innings. My $’s on Tyler White.

    So, I haven’t played Showdown MLB in a while (like two years), but do RPs still get points? I’d take any of those $3K RP punts to complete my lineup.

    They get points for outs/K’s and negative points for hits, walks, etc. but no more hold or save points, which were clutch last year.

  • nickbloggerman

    Not just that, the relievers got around 1.33x or 1.5x more points than starters, which was huge. you could have guys come in and get 15-20 points in a couple innings.

  • SoreOnSunday

    So is it rare now they end up in the winning lineups?

  • SoreOnSunday

    Rp’s still get 3 for a K as opposed to 2 for the starters right?

  • nickbloggerman

    Nah, it’s the same scoring for all pitchers. 2 for a K, 0.75 per out. The only extra points you can possibly get are the 4 win points, which are impossible to predict beyond a starter.

    Man they need to update the scoring on the site last I just looked it still showed the old scoring

    Interesting that FD is running a $0.25 entry contest with 150 max entries for the single game slate tonight. Wish they did that more often…great way to deal with tilt without breaking the bank 😁

    Altuve 54% ownership on DK lower than it should be….$6.2k is a serious pricing error

  • dragon1952

    2 runs on 4 grounders and some suspect defense for Valdez :^ /
