    Buchholz at over 50% owned in the showdown slate and was scratched before the first pitch. Luckily I switched him out.

    I didn’t hear any of this ???
    Edit: was there even an RG alert?

    BoSox or White Sox? I’m big on Dodgers. I will continue to stack against Gomber until he implodes. I especially like that LAD has seen Gomber before, which should be helpful. That was also by far his luckiest start of them all.

    EDIT: Obviously BoSox. For some reason I keep thinking KC is still playing the CWS.

    4 LAD, 3 BOS. originally had 4 BOS but had a little salary left over and moved up from Bradley to a one off with a much higher ceiling (now watch Bradley go 4/4, 1 HR, 3 runs scored, 3 RBI, and a steal).

    no alert from RG

    no alert from DK Live

    just found out now

    usually DK Live will do a notification when something like this occurs

  • yisman

    Arizona’s twitter didn’t mention it until 10 minutes after lock.

    They said they’ll pass along updates but no updates yet….

    I ended up getting off the Sox after I saw Mookie was out (plus I decided I need Kershaw). So I ended up with 4 LAD, 2 TOR, and 2 one offs from the SEA/LAA game.

    I want to play LAD, but every time I stack against Gomber he pulls ‘Houdini’ and skates his way to a solid night. So I went only 1 Dodger and no Kershaw. And went with BOS and 1 offs.

    Tonight I’m counting on Houdini dropping the key while he’s hanging upside down in the water tank and trying to escape

    Good Luck, it may happen as I’m not doing it tonight. The first time in his last 4 starts waiting on the regression it just hasn’t happened and for I played him against him at home 1x and 3x on road he is better at home with an ERA that reduces by 1 plus. If anything it tells me to play Gomber over Kershaw and load bats. But I don’t know as been funk after winning GPP last week in a ‘night slate’.

    Brett Anderson with BOS and stacking the Angels outfield.

    Had Anderson but since Papa kept saying against Gomber the more I looked I moved to him over Anderson and bats.

    Very smart move. Fading me has proven to be a long term winning strategy in all forms of sports betting.

  • tbird05

    Fanduel correctly listed the Mets and Marlins 2nd game to start at 6:40. The contest is still showing the start time to be 6:30. Will drama ensue?

    More at 6.

  • tbird05

    and i just got an email from fanduel that the slate will start in 9 minutes. 6:15. Anyone see lineups?

  • tbird05

    nobody is on FD tonight?

  • KindGuy

    LMAO Fanduel is such a clusterfuck and terribly wrong organization. Start time now moved up to 6:15.

    WHY do they keep on including the second game of these double headers????

  • tbird05

    had to go with some Marlins/Mets stacks because of the weird nature of this slate

    just so dumb

    usually lineups aren’t out before lock

    and then the times they are, it’s usually because the start time got moved up which screws with everyone

    A lot of people got stuck with blank lineups I’m sure

    Yahoo also moved lock up 25 minutes but at least there you can still enter a lineup.

  • yisman

    I was thinking I’d enter yahoo and I’d have time. Opened yahoo up at 6:11 and see a message that lock time is being changed to 6:15

    quickly threw together a lineup and entered some contests. Missed some other contests and there was a lot of overlay as a result of lock time being moved up.

  • dolphinkick182

    LOL I just sent them an email to ask what is up. Just got home to get my line-ups in and have 3minutes…..the alert said 6:30 start time. The had it plastered everywhere. Now 6:15? Where was the alert? The banner? The email 13 minutes before lock lol?

  • LuckyLuc3434

    Yeah, this is a mess. Not a good look, and almost really screwed me over

  • tbird05

    I dont mind it for gpp’s

  • KindGuy

    Perfect example of why Fanduel is trending down for the past couple of years. Wouldn’t surprise me one bit if Yahoo overtakes them #2 in the industry next year. Just a terribly managed company.

  • yisman

    Obviously the people that benefit are happy but FD doing this (how many times has it been this season? 3? 4?) just serves to piss off some of their customers.

    All the people who had blank lineups, some of the people who had shell lineups, and the people who were waiting until closer to lock to enter contests.

    Fanduel used to be THE #1 company in DFS and it wasn’t close.
