    Any chance we get contests on DK for the WBC? Seems like a slim chance since they have never done spring training games but we did get Olympic golf and basketball contests as well as the fact that they run preseason NBA and NFL contests. Can’t wait for baseball to be back!

    It’s PETCO, and while Smyly isn’t anything special, he’s still a major league quality pitcher. There’s obviously a chance he ges shelled, because Venezuela’s lineup is stacked, but then he’ll be out of there and plenty of American relievers who can get the job done. Odds are he’ll be fine. If he was that bad, USA wouldn’t be favored in this game.

    To me the only plays were either Japan/USA stack or Japan/VEN stack. Or one of each (or ten of each depending on how many lineups you do). Complete with the pitchers from the teams you are stacking.

    But since I was not going to stay up last night, I did a very small amount of action. Just guessed Japan’s lineup based on who had played all 5 games prior to that point. Looks like it backfired on Nakata. Did have Tsutsgoh though.

    Was also not staying up, and preferred to know my lineups ahead of time. Got out somewhat unscathed using Israel’s pitcher, and am hoping for a high scoring game on both sides tonight while fading both of the Japan/Israel lineups completely. Looks like Tsutsugo had a great game, but at 60% ownership in my contest.

    I guess I’m more bearish on Smyly/King Felix than most, but seems like the bats started to come alive for both teams in their respective most recent games, Miggy and Posey in particular. With Altuve likely back in the lineup against a lefty, I don’t see a lot of outs for Smyly against Altuve, Prado, Miggy and V-Mart.

    Really hoping Leyland stops putting Hosmer in the middle of the order, handedness be damned.

    I’m mixed on Smyly. I feel like I’ve had him when he’s given up 4 homers and games where he’s gone 6 with 12Ks. I’m just so afraid of all that right handed power.

  • VRod305

    I actually set my alarm to wake up and check the Japan line ups and it didn’t go off, so I got lucky there. Think I’m going to stick with Felix in my better line up and go with Smyly in the other one.

    USA rolling out the B-squad… McCutchen, Bregman and Lucroy instead of Stanton, Crawford and Posey. Absent something similar from Venezuela, I’d stick with King Felix too.

  • rdlman88

    Can you post the lineups on here for me por favor? I’m on my mobile and can’t find them

  • VRod305

    USA

    Kinsler
    Jones
    Yelich
    Arenado
    Hosmer
    Goldy
    Cutch
    Lucroy
    Bregman

  • VRod305

    Ven has all the big guys in there.

  • rdlman88

    Thanks I appreciate it. Would you happen to have the link?

    Nevermind I got it thanks tho vrod

  • VRod305

    I got it on Twitter.

  • VRod305

    I ended up with Felix in my better line up, so here comes Smyly’s 6 no-hit innings with 10 Ks.

  • rdlman88

    Yup… I took Felix. Both pitched well, but not fading Smyly would’ve put me in first in a $27 42man (currently)

  • VRod305

    This game just didn’t go well. I didn’t have either of the guys that hit homers and no one else did anything.

  • KindGuy

    Hosmer haters where ya’ll at?!

  • LuckyLuc3434

    Didn’t stay up for the Japan game, so missed Nakata being benched, and then must have forgotten to click confirm on my Posey/Lucroy switch…

    Nice to see the big tourneys for tomorrow though. Looking forward to two good games with reasonable start times

  • Thomas21

    I think spread out batters is a good idea for tonight and tomorrow. PetCo is a very tough stadium at night so I don’t believe there will be many HRs from either side which makes a balanced lineup better imo.

  • VRod305

    I’m working and totally forgot to change my line ups. Hoping for a big Villar performance off the bench. This is the end of my WBC run.

  • KindGuy

    17 more days. Hang in there!

  • VRod305

    I’m feeling confident going into real baseball…Like I do every sport. I think it’s the most fun I have with any sport (since there is no more fantasy college bbbal). Can’t wait.

    Can’t wait. Hopefully DK doesn’t change anything.

    I think we would of heard something by now. The two pitcher rule and the ability to not have early locks make it the best site for Baseball.

    yep. remember the fiasco with FD last year and rule changes

  • Jaws1002

    WBC must be winding down it’s a ghost town on here today lol. I am at 58.15 and in 53rd place in the Dk four-seamer with 4 offensive players and Stroman left for tonight. Should I leave who I liked in the lineup as long as they are playing or try to be contrarian? Leader has 81.15 with only 1 offense and a pitcher left.

    I’m right behind you in 59th 56.15 and 5 offensive players remaining and I’m debating the same thing… it’s hard to know what to do

    Well good luck. I’ll wait for lineups to make the final call.
