A case could be made for using Skaggs or Stripling tonight too. Maybe build the ultimate gpp all or nothing lineup with 1 of them and Matz then stack Yanks and Cle. 

 

Not sure I'll have the balls to keep it without mixing in some more Dodgers but have this in a $1 SE

Ended up with 7 Stripling and 2 Miley lineups.   Hope Muncy has a good game.  Also, both Bautista and Conforto seem to hit Scherzer well and at 2400 and 2300 they ended up in a couple lineups.   Avoided NY/CLev/TB/Min/LAA/SEA for the most part.  Would really like TOR to get their lineup in, I am using a few of them that are cheap (I don't like David Price) but not sure they are playing.

Also, played Toles from LAD -- if he does not play I am going to have to scramble because he is only $2K and probably won't know his status until late.

ETA -- Tor worked out very well, $2300 for 2b hitting 2nd and Grichuk and Teo Hernandez are both cheap at 1st and 3rd in lineup

Well, I guess I am sticking with my initial thought of Dodgers-L and Wash-R as the main focus for the $1 LUs.   Stuck mostly with the same bats, and mixed in SPs.  I have a couple Snell LUs in there, as RG thinks it might be more of a delay and play late, but I could try Paxton for the same price too.  

Have a few 25cent LUs reserved and not sure what to do with them yet.

Toles is playing and moved up a little to the 6 spot, so that helps a bit so I don't have to scramble.

Bummer, I had Justin Turner in one lineup but had to be away from my computer.  Had I known I could have same price swapped in Rendon, but instead I got stuck with Seager.  Dang life getting in the way.

And Pearce coming out does not help either...

Dodgers really need to do something or yet another dud night on tap.   Had a bit of Rendon and Taillon, but not much else around them, I guess.

Unsurprisingly I didn't cash either. Taillon/Gibson as my 2nd SP would've helped but real problem was I picked the wrong Yanks and Dodgers were a bust.

Just two of the 8 min cashed for me.  Max Muncy (and all LAD) and Steve Pearce tanked a number of lineups.  Not sure what the plan will be tonight with so many games.  May try and see how many guys from SEA/COL I can get into my lineup.

Got my butt handed to me last night and went 0-fer.    Last night as I watched Paxton, Kluber, Severino, Scherzer, Snell throw duds I had a flash of my post from probably a month ago where I said that it's probably not worth it to pay for SPs in gpps, especially on FD.  Maybe I should listen to myself a little more, as I had a bit of Taillon, but not nearly enough as I was convinced that one of those other guys had a better shot at a 50+pt game.  

On to today, where there is 0 worry about stud SPs on this slate...

I just saw a projected LU that didn't have Cruz in there.  Not sure if he got dinged last night or something, but that would hurt their scoring a bit.  On the plus side, it would make the stack a little cheaper.

Busy at work and not really into doing much research today. Just going to do a pickem or 2 on DK and 1 SE lineup for $1. Sticking with Eovaldi and stacks of Mil and Mets.

Be warned... that's what I also just wrote down for myself.

Depending on LU, I actually wrote down the Tort SP as a punt option as well. Bost isn't that great vs. LHPs, and if Pearce sits that's one less that can actually hit them.

Looking at stats more, I kept landing on A.Sanchez, so I will try that.  AZ has 4th lowest (sub .300) team wOBA on the season and 24% K rate.   I did throw Chatwood in a 25cent entry on FD b/c you aren't dinged for walks there.  

I did throw a few WTF 25 cent Seattle entries in there, but concentrated on the mid-lower end of the batting order hoping for lower ownership.  Since they were cheap I threw together 2 LUs with Seager, Span, Gamel, Healy and a low SP.  One was a Coors stack:  Sanchez Healy A.Cabrera Seager Story Gamel Span Blackmon Gonzales.  

My WTF LU with a late hammer was stacking Cubs with Yankees:  Contreras Baez Bryant Kingery Hicks Judge Gardner Bird.

I went with cheap pitchers and COL/SEA hitters with some BALT/TEX and PHI thrown in.   My hitting portfolio is not very diversified, so a 2-1 Col-Sea game will knock out everyone of my lineups. 

Pitchers used: Borucki, Chatwood, Keller, Jackson, Oddorizi, and Pena

Figured it was Friday so I would throw caution to the wind and go all in with my $2 (8x.25)!

Good luck everyone

Welp, so much for that Borucki idea.  Started off strong in the 1st inning...

Still managed to stay + on the night.  Up $3 on DK and down a tad on FD.   On DK one was a Seattle stack, the other Color stack.  If only I would have combined the SPs better, as one was a CMart/Shields combo and the other was Sanchez/Borucki.  FD the main one that cashed was of course a Coors stack and I had Sanchez with that one too.  

Just looking now at how today's slates are broken up on the sites.

Also, @Raging weasel, did you see that FD has their version of the pick 'em?  The unfortunate thing is that it's 3 SPs and 3bats, and the reason you usually do those is to avoid a slate with crappy pitching.

Slightly + day yesterday.  LeMahieu was a late scratch, so I had move a couple pieces around to get in Baez instead and he came through.  Also rolled out Gray and that worked out.  Not a big day, but + is +.  

On to the last day before the all-star break.

On the road again this weekend, so I will probably only take a stab at a SE or two.  Probably a good thing since I didn't really see a ton of teams that I wanted to attack bats on today.  Pitts has one of the best matchups, but the highest shot at rain too.    Even with the ballpark and heat, I looked at Bauer.  Gpp options I was looking at Gaviglio on FD for 5.5K vs. the Machado-less Orioles.  Duffy stood out too, considering how bad Minn is vs. LHP.  

DK I am considering a SE LU with Duffy and Sam G and load up on whatever bat I want.  That would only be 13K for pitching (less that Bauer :lol: ), and I think it has some upside.

I'm using quite a bit of Duffy/Gaviglio along with Arrietta,Gibson and 1 with Strasburg. I know he's facing Yanks but has good K upside,may be sneaky and 9.3k is a decent discount.

For bats love Cle(Guyer 2k on FD and 3.3 at DK my play of the day). LAD looks good but probably super chalky and the same with Bos. Seager for Seat also seems too cheap so doing a stack with him. Also doing a hedge stack with Yanks lefties.

Yeah, I am guessing that LaD, Clev, and Bost will be the places people look to.  

I like the Guyer call.  Another that I wrote down as a late night guy is A.Garcia.  Not sure his FD price, but he was 3.4K on DK, and I thought that was a bit too cheap.

Sunday was one of those days that I was kicking myself for looking at my phone so much.  I had a cheap SP and high bats, and the popular build was a expensive SP and I think Balt and W.Sox for cheap teams.   The big bats started off well, but then the cheap teams kicked in.  In the course of about 35mins I checked and went from being up $250 to being down $3 on FD.  :lol:   Did better on DK and I think won $14 there, but I sure was wishing I didn't check the scores at those times.

Played 4 .25ers and a $1 SE last night. Only 1 cashed but was 3rd place so up $1.51. Had Thor/Gaviglio with Cle/Tor.

Also cashed a 50/50 on FD so up all around.

Made another $1+ last night. Just a $1 SE on DK for today with Happ/Clevinger with Cle,Tor and Cin bats. Also used Happ on FD in a $2 50/50.

Total loss on Sun as Cle guys tanked my lineups. Grichuk did well but almost everyone else scored in single digits.

Lots of good options at SP today. At the high end Degromm, Severino, Stripling and Porcello. Also have Kluber but I usually don't pay up for guys coming off an injury. Mid to low guys I like are Wheeler, Newcomb,Lauer and for the gamblers Barria and Giolito. Also have more than usual min priced SP as 4-5 teams are going bullpen style today.

It's going to be harder to pick bats today as I like a bunch of teams. Bo's,Cle and LAD all in good spots but expensive. Like the lefties from Wash,Stl and Atl. Cubs seem cheaper than normal and like some of them. Like Tor again and whatever cheap OFers play for Oak.

Looks like there is a bit of weather to look at today with Mets/SD currently being the worst of them.  

After listening to the podcast, AZ is a team that I was going to dig deeper on.  The SP for the Cubs throws fastballs and sliders 90% of the time, and AZ seem to hit those pitches well, even guys like Avila.

Yeah, I didn't look at the weather yet so may have to rethink using Lauer who I have in at DK with Stripling.  

I have Descalso in at FD in my 50/50 cause I needed a cheap 2B.

Dug a little deeper, and of the main teams, I have Bost at the top.  Seems like Gausman leans a little more to the reverse splits side as far as wOBA and ISO, but has a high WHIP vs. LHBs.   The Angels were the other team that popped up for me.  

The Det/KC game could be interesting b/c of the SPs and the bad bullpens behind them.  Neither are a team I like to play or seem to get right the few times I do try them though.  The other game that I was staring at was the Wash/Milw game.  Chacin isn't great vs. LHBs and Gio can do Gio things sometimes.   Digging deeper into the AZ bats and the Cubs SP has the 2nd highest HR/9 on the slate, and really high WHIP vs. LHBs too at 1.88.  

Basically, there were very few spots where I couldn't make a case for trying the bats.  I think right now for full stacks I am looking more at Red Sox, Angels, Wash and AZ.   Spots I wrote down to mix in other bats were:  LaD-L, Minn-L, Carpenter, Oak-R, Milw-R, W.sox-R and digging into the Det/KC game more.

While putting in a pickem lineup noticed the name has been changed to Tiers.

And I agree that almost every team has usable options or even stacking potential.

Man, I really don't love the SPs today.  (figured as much when I liked just about every situation for bats).  Not sure what I will do if the Mets game doesn't play.  I am guessing I will drop down to Porcello/Stripling, but those games are also look like they have a little rain to watch out for too.   I guess then it's Severino or going WTF with a cheap guy - maybe Castillo?

On FD I'm using Barria at 5.9k in my SE gpp. He could get crushed especially by A Garcia but could also get 8-10 Ks so I'm risking it. Same with Liriano who's could boom or bust but other than Merrifield and Perez KC isn't very scary.

Had to redo a lineup after Lauer scratched and also have lots of players in the rain delayed games. Not looking like a plus night at all.
