    Lots of color on Roth’s page, but only a couple 🟧‘s.

    Lots of pitchers to bomb, but how about 💣 J.A. Happ? Carlos Santana: 10 for 22 with a homer and 3 walks.

    With such a big slate like this, how do yall decide what games to fade and what to focus on?

  • ifthethunder

    I start with the pitchers I want (or can stand) to play. Then look at the Vegas and try to fit bats. Make a couple or 3 lineups that way, then do tiers (gives me more ideas about the bats to play). Finally make a lineup or 2 with the bats and try to fit some pitchers. Which is how I have Drew Smyly in one of my 5 l.u.s.

    Put in a big-bet on SEA tonight. BOMB Gibson! If not now, when? Guy cannot keep this up. 2.00 ERA junkballer. Bombed in Seattle heat tonight!

    Got 4 lineups, using 3 pitchers Smyly is one of them 🤷‍♂️ Not super confident as the line moved pretty decently in favor of Miami, but he’s cheap and has upside. He’s in 2/4.

    Maybe because Ronald Acuna Jr. is questionable?

    WAS questionable, I see he is supposed to play now. I was considering making a 6th lineup with Pablo Lopez if Acuna were out.

    I was gonna play some baseball but the contest selection looks pretty bad and doesn’t seem worth the effort when I’m unlikely to win anyway

    The $4.44 on FD doesn’t look too bad

    That never stopped me from playing NBA! (Contest selection doesn’t much matter when you’re not winning anyway.)

    P.S. Couldn’t resist. I’ve kittened one of my lineups into an all-Castro team:

    Jason Castro
    Willi Castro
    Starlin Castro
    Harold Castro

    make sure there are no Miami players on your castro team!

    Yep I almost entered my lineups into the $4.44. But I know better now. Sticking to the small field

  • zovyn

    Manoah seems to be getting the hang of this…

  • 866

    Lynn Folds? Noooooooooooooooooo CMon Man… WTF. Couple walks and singles, 1 run only, but that hurts. Pitch Ct rose a lot and those walks and singles knock the pt totals down. Annoyed. Loving my salary fillers Alberto/Taylor both doubled last inng. Good. Now need my SEA Stacks to BOMB Gib. Fraley-Fever! Leggo. Need Gilbert to be on tonight. Got the top 3 for LAA Also to BOMB-Akin!

  • 866

    Seriously man, HOW is K Gibson 6-0, 2.00? Can he avoid being bombed finally? I don’t think so…………………….. tonight is gonna be the night, on the road vs hungry young team.
    Doesn’t make it thru the 5th I say. Leggo SEA!

  • ifthethunder

    Carp. I had Willy Adames in every lineup yesterday. Day before, plenty too. Not today tho. Got only one homer in one lineup so far: Salvador Perez

    Lynn toughed that out pretty well. Closed out the 6th inning with style.

    Leyba homers. What a time to be alive.. .043 batter.

  • ifthethunder

    I got Hanser Alberto in a few. Still need more!

    P.S. I see Max Scherzer had a decent line, but the Dodgers blew up our bullpen.
