Well 1 contest entered yesterday and it lost, but Saturday baseball is more fun.

I’ll be playing multiple teams & hopefully one will rank very highly.

My team for today.

P Chris Archer (TB) $10,300

His last time out against the Yankees he only went 6 innings and gave up 5 earned runs, however he did strike out 9 and in his past 5 starts has managed to get at least 9 k’s in 4 of those games.

P Masahiro Tanaka (NYY) $10,800

His past 6 starts he has picked up the win 5 times and the Yankees have won all 6 contests. His last time against the Rays he struck out 8 over 7 innings although he did allow 4 earned runs.

C Steven Vogt (OAK) $2,900

Vogt is in a 2/20 skid, however facing Felix Hernandez he is 11/26 with 1 home run, so at the price is worth a try.

1B VJ Martinez (DET) $3,100

Only hitting .229 in the past 15 days, but he’s 11/31 with 4 homers and 12 RBI’s when facing Ubaldo Jimenez.

2B Steve Pearce (BAL) $3,500

Facing Zimmermann he is 4/11 2 of those hits went yard, he is however 2/13 in the past 7 days.

3B Jose Ramirez (CLE) $3,700

He is 9/28 this past week and against Santiago he is 3/7 with a home run.

SS Troy Tulowitzki (TOR) $3,400

Tulowitzki has not faced Rodriguez before, over the past week he is hitting .316 with no home runs but his quality is never in question.

OF Mookie Betts (BOS) $4,600

Betts is only 2/12 against Happ, one of those hits was a home run, and over the last 15 days Mookie his hitting .360.

OF Coco Crisp (CLE) $3,400

Crisp is 4/11 against Santiago and 3 of those 4 hits have been homers. I can’t really expect him to hit a home run but his chances are higher than normal.

OF Justin Upton (DET) $4,200

Upton is 8/28 with 2 dingers facing Jimenez, over the past 7 days he is hitting .333 with 4 home runs.

Remaining Budget: $100

 

My Hopes

P Chris Archer (TB) – 25 points

P Masahiro Tanaka (NYY) – 20 pints

C Steven Vogt (OAK) – 14 points

1B VJ Martinez (DET) – 14 points

2B Steve Pearce (BAL) – 9 points

3B Jose Ramirez (CLE) – 8 points

SS Troy Tulowitzki (TOR) – 8 points

OF Mookie Betts (BOS) – 11 points

OF Coco Crisp (CLE) – 7 points

OF Justin Upton (DET) – 9 points

 

Those totals would bring in 135 points, and realistically I can see those players achieving those totals.

This team has plenty of upside & downside, the biggest concern is that the Rays – Yankee game is a run fest; I would hope this team could push to 140 points which would compete for the cash prices. With the BVP numbers I would hope I could get 4 home runs, and if everybody had a multi score day I’d be looking good.
