Not a great or good month for me in fantasy baseball, it started promisingly however I just kept missing paid places by single points & didn’t have a big money finish.
But here are my statistics for the first part our challenge. Including win percentage which is;
(100 / Contests Played) X Placed
Contests Played: 67
Played ($): 58.75
Placed Wins ($): $34.65
Profit: – $24.10
Win PCT: 24.6%
With life comes busy periods, and so you may notice a change in how we present the picks from day to day.
Onto September and I didn’t play yesterday so I’ll be picking my players carefully I really want a nice profit this month, (my last big pay-out came in soccer).
2nd September Picks
Today, I’m going to play some of the best players from August.
P AJ Cole (WSH) $7,700
Can the Nationals young star turn in a quality start, that’s all I ask for?

He has had 7 double digit strikeout games this season; however 0 in August, His ERA is back under 4.00 at 3.97 now.
C Russell Martin (TOR) $3,800

1B Adrian Gonzalez (LAD) $4,500
I have him as 3rd best first baseman this past month.
2B Trea Turner (WSH) $3,900
Was Turner August’s best 2nd baseman?
3B Yangervis Solarte (SD) $3,500
Solarte is a fair price, and facing a young pitcher in Urias.
