    Noticed DK has games for today. Tried researching but not getting a lot of info. Going to try and focus on young guys trying to make impacts like the rookie Alonzo for the Mets competing with Smith for 1st base.

    First off don’t play the Twins/Baltimore, game is postponed. And pay attention to the other games, lots of rain in Florida

    Smart move guy let everyone know about the postponement. Smh might as well let them know there’s a good chance braves get ppd too.

    Perhaps you haven’t noticed, but I am here to boost everyone up and not to show how big my ego brain is.

    Here is today’s blog:

    Felt like yesterday all the guys I played got 3 plate appearances and everybody I faded got 4. Also, Holy Trout on my DK Live update!

    Also, Holy Trout on my DK Live update!

    The baseball curmudgeon in me is happy to see the Trout and Arenado extensions this year. Not a ton of guys willing to stick with a club just because they drafted them. My hope is that the Angels can figure it out and give Trout many playoff runs.

  • RudyPujols

    So, I got cute and went Green and full fade on everybody else in that game hoping for a 3rd-inning monsoon. Backfired, I forgot that Joey Wendle has HOF numbers when facing pitchers I roster in DK.

  • RudyPujols

    I’m trying to figure out how Kieboom singles to 2nd base with runners on 1st and 3rd, Robles doesn’t score, and Difo gets tagged out for over-running second. Is that just an error that both MLB and ESPN are posting? Was Robles Manny Machado-ing it to home (if so, not a nice look for a youngster on the verge of beating out a semi-vet for a starting gig).

  • D4RKSH33P

    Difo was out because he made contact with the ball according to the radio broadcast. Not sure about the Robles only getting to 3rd part.

    Braves are already starting to pull starters in the 3rd with the rain.

  • RudyPujols

    Ah, that makes sense. Rule 10.05, batter is credited with a single when a batted ball hits a baserunner. Dead ball, so Robles can’t score from 3rd.

    Anybody know anything about MLB Achievements this year? Obviously they won’t be rolled out before Japan, but I would hope we’d see something before the real opening day. Hopefully they keep the 25k iron man, October is the only month I get to rock Diamond status.

    DarkSheep, if you need any help identifying who will only get 3 plate appearances (and by implication who will get 4), I could be your wing man. Only problem is roster posting is frowned upon (understandably). I have an uncanny ability to pick all 3-PA guys and fade all the chalky 4-PA guys. I’m getting spit out of the cash line on late-inning, 4th-plate appearance, feasting on scrub pitchers by chalky guys I faded like it’s my job.

  • D4RKSH33P

    I certainly can’t find any common thread either. Sometimes its guys trying to get it going still, sometimes the DH, sometimes the whole lineup, and sometimes its guys still competing for a spot.
    Why in the world did they give Acuna 4 today? Bubble wrap that guy.

    I am about to start building lineups as usual your articles are appreciated. Any news?

  • D4RKSH33P

    No news so far. A couple of tweets about relievers coming in after starters and no real take aways from lineup pictures.

  • thewinners

    I cant win on dk I started on there 1 month ago and cant win crap. I need all the help i can get so please send me a pm and tell me what you like for the games today. Ty

  • D4RKSH33P

    I have had a rough couple of days there too. As far as what I like today and what I am playing. Most of these plays feel obvious so there may be some benefit in going against them too. :P Isn’t that why we love DFS?

    - Gavaglio is another young strike out guy against this Phillies lineup that has been abysmal. They have the power to ruin this play, but have yet to show it in spring – Archer against the Orioles seems like a good spot with a little hedge against with some orioles stacks since he can have bad outings.
    -Mets hitters against Chen
    -Marliins hitters just keep hitting
    -Pittsburg “A” lineup against Hess
    -Alex Bregman

  • D4RKSH33P

    No starling marte

  • nickbloggerman

    Damn 32% in the contest I’m in. Major edge if you got the replacement in, provided that Hess blows up as we expect.

  • D4RKSH33P

    Well my Gaviglio play is looking great today. This Phillies lineup is going to drive me crazy this year, I can already tell. 10 strikeouts some days, 10 runs the next…

    Slate is this evening so I will be putting up the blog this afternoon.

    Friday night at the spring training park:

    With the timing of this slate, I am not really able to write up blurbs for each pitcher so I just included their spring stats so far as a reference point. Let me know if you find this more helpful than writing up blurbs. I don’t mind writing them and it helps me think about the pitchers, but it does take a fair amount of time.
