Well 2 of my 3 teams last night placed, not very highly but gave me a very minimal return, however in both teams I had non scorers.
In one team Ben Zobrist & Eduardo Nunez combined for zero,
This team contained Belt, Grandal & Kepler who combined for 71 points, of the 122.95 points total.
Whilst in another Jason Castro, Brandon Phillips & Kevin Pillar returned nothing. In this team things were looking better until David Price went out for the eigth inning, But Jacob deGrom, Miguel Cabrera & Cameron Maybin had big nights.
Last Night’s Stat’s
Contests Played: 3
Total Stake: $2.25
Paid places: 2
Madison Bumgarner had a horrid night I did play him in one team. As I did feel his price was a little too much when pitching in Philadelphia.
But onto Wednesday games, which start at 1pm ET.
Here’s one team I’ll be playing.
It is fairly clear that Draft Kings are from Boston as Andrew Benintendi who debuted as a pinch hitter last night for the Red Sox is priced at $3,700.
P Steven Matz (NYM) $8,800
8.44 K/9 against a struggling & ageing Yankee team, even if the Yankees manage to connect they’ll still strike out in bunches.
P Rick Porcello (BOS) $10,500
Porcello has been one of the best pitchers in 2016, He’s a genuine candidate to get 30 points.
C Wilson Contreras (CHC) $3,600
1 for 2 with a HR against the scheduled Marlins starter Koehler, Who has an ERA of 4.18
1B Paul Goldschmidt (ARI) $4,000
Scherzer is a tough pitcher, but for a hitter all you need is 1 mistake and it’s 14 Points to the total.
2B Trea Turner (WSH) $4,300
Hitting in the high 300’s this past week, against a starter with a 5.63 ERA
3B Nick Castellanos (DET) $3,100
Facing lefty Sale, I feel if any Tiger does the damage it’s either Miguel Cabrera or Castellanos.
SS Andrelton Simmons (LAA) $2,700
Batting .328 after all-star break at an attractive price why not.
OF Carlos Gonzalez (COL) $5,300
Had a fine multi hit ball game last night, and in Coors Field, capable of double digits.
OF Yasmany Tomas (ARI) $3,300
Playing well over the last 7 days, a tough match up today but we gotta’ gamble today.
OF Christian Yelich (MIA) $4,400
All of his 10 HR’s have come against Righties & Lackey is scheduled for the Cubs.
Apologies for getting this up a bit late, thankfully both Yelich & Trea Tuner have HR’d.
