    I managed to cash Lance Lynn lineups yesterday thanks to Edmundo Sosa and Tommy Edman. Would have done even better with more Cards, so I’ll be dealing them again today too.

    Sosa saved my Gutierrez LU nicely.

    Who’s our punt savior today?

    I have him at SS again today, and he’s 2,100…100 cheaper than yesterday. Guess who?

    P.S. I got a home run from Nats outfielder Lane Thomas yesterday. He’s leading off and priced at the minimum on DK again today.

    KYLE SCHWARBER ??

    I have him in tiers (one of two). And one regular lineup. But I’m not sure enough to commit more than 1 of 5 classics to him. He hasn’t faced Eli Morgan before. Sometimes, Morgan is good.

    P.S. Ah, there’s the link. Morgan was good one of his last 3 and terrible the other 2.

    Yeah, I think they’re going to be okay if they’re patient but…

  • jayzee666

    So far, so good.
    Castellanos with a SO.
    Baumgarner in trouble.
    Molina SOs so that Carlson didn’t have to SO with bases loaded.

    No players from games with runs.
    At least Mullins didn’t SO.

    Early LP sweats.

    I’m not sure how many times I can throw good pitchers at the Marlins and watch them get slapped around before I jerk the wheel.

    Yeah… it’s that whole “it-can’t-happen-two-days-in-a-row” versus “who’s hot who’s not” DFS mental battle. :P

    Not to mention, “how many pitchers on this huge slate do you actually feel good about, taking prices into account.”

    My first pass was Dylan Cease, Tyler Mahle, and Mad Bum (I thought the last might be sneaky, given he’s not really at a discount). 6% ownership is sneaky, but he didn’t stealth his way through the 1st against a Philly team that isn’t hitting so much these days.

    I do have a Cease and Desist, err Kwang Hyun Kim l.u. Maybe this will be the one!

    I was between Mahle, Kim, Greinke, and Berrios for my SE. Had the $ so I just plugged Mahle in w/o much thought. He’s settling in a bit nowso fingers-crossed he doesn’t kill me.

    Probably spending WAY too much time this weekend researching NFL pre-season matchups.

    tfw you go 3+5 for an ATL platoon mini-stack and instead the 2+4 RvR mini-stack blows up…

    I’m waiting until the last day to figure out what to do with my $10 NFL showdown and $5 classic day one tickets. Both those contests are ridiculous lottos with over 470,000 and 1,2 million entries each, so might as well just throw darts anyways.

    As for today, my only homer is from Marlin Jesus Sanchez. Off Tyler Mahle, who I have in the same lineup. Need more hitting!

    So far it looks like only Berrios was a better choice than Mahle… so maybe I’m not so dumb after all.

    As for NFL… I’ve been hitting those $0.50 36-person NFL satty contests for a month. Currently have ~50 $3 tickets to the opening FD NFL main slate. Hoping to have 60+ by gameday.

    Ordinarily I’d just train 3 or 4 lineups amongst all those entries. Going to try and actually MME an event for once and do all unique lineups. Why not. :)

    Congrats if you landed on joey wendle today. Lotto balls.

    Tommy Edman (again) and Joey Wendle heard the call.

    I was afraid to pick Berrios.

    Funny thing, Jesus Luzardo is crushing it. Imagine if you picked him? 1.7% of those surveyed said Yes!

    Cashing 3 of 5 thanks to Wendle. But the Paul Goldschmidt goose egg wasn’t helpful. Also while I like the Cease outing….I stacked the White Sox yesterday. Not today.

    Woot!

    Was easy to get to with a chalk Rays stack and 6.5 implied total.

    Cool. I played the TAM players that didn’t suck on a BvP basis, and did pretty well, but Wendle really broke through today. Congrats to you. Keep it up!
