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.

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?

P David Price (BOS) $11,900

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

Was he the 4th best catcher in August?

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.

SS Brad Miller (TB) $3,600

I have him as the 2nd best short stop for August.

OF Charlie Blackmon (COL) $4,800

I have him just behind Kris Bryant in 2nd for the past 30 days.

OF Carlos Gomez (TEX) $2,900

Players against former teams always seem to stand out, could Gomez hurt his former friends?

Not long ago he was rewarding fantasy players with double digit performances.
