Is this new, or have you always been able to have a SP + 4bats from the same team?  For some reason I thought it was 4 players max from a team, so if I did a SP I just put in 3 bats.

Thanks.

I noticed it the other day looking at leaderboards with Price + 4 Boston bats and thought WTF??

Pearce leading off, Travis at 9.  So much for that in cash.  

I assume a cheap idea at 2B is Zobrist leading off.

Rizzo showed as starting, now scratched.  I love the Cubs with him and Happ in there, but neither are playing now.

Was out shopping and was a little rushed with my DK cash LU, so hopefully I didn't botch it too badly.  

I am surprised at the # of LUs (of course they are at the top now) with combos like CC + Williams or Castillo + Williams in cash.  Seems seems risky since the Pitts game had some of the worst predicted weather, so a midgame shutdown was a possibility, but also why pass up on McCullers?

Doesn't show up on FD or DK at all, but I got a notification on Draft that I needed to replace him in a LU.  :confused:

@Raging weasel - like I said, it doesn't show up on FD or DK, so not sure WTF is going on.  I swapped him out - I hope that doesn't burn me.

Weird they would make me switch.  I got a similar notification for Rizzo about an hour ago.

Good Luck tonight! 

I left him in my 25cent Cubs stack, but took him out of my couple gpps where he was a one-off.

Good start to the night on FD cash with Gardner and Manny.  

I rolled with:  McCullers Smoak Zobrist Beltre Manny Trout Reddick Pearce Gardner

 

Unfortunately, I did that thing I do where I want to spread out the love on the sites, so instead of Manny on DK I rolled with Donaldson and Didi.

Sorry for any confusion.  Looks like he is batting now.  Probably write a quick note to Draft about that.

Ugh. The Cubs SP and his negative points will be losing all my money for me on DK.  Picked him over Estrada since I thought Texas would score some with the Jays, and the Brewers K so much.  

Oh, and WTF is up with Pitts this year? I had 0% of them tonight b/c I read that was the game most in risk of getting the ppd.

And of course this is the night I tried the SPs against the As and Brewers.

Wait, the As have 6 runs, and my Davis/Olson combo in my gpp only has 3pts? :lmao:

I had no business even getting 1/2 my $ back in DK cash with a SP getting negative points, but K.Calhoun's steal late in that game put me right at the cut off in my 50/50s.  Was about a point away in my 2xs.  

I actually like a few of the SPs on the main slate today so I will throw something together.  Darvish, Bauer, Gray, Greinke, Gio all look like options. 

ETA:  Should say that I like it on DK more today because they have 8 games and include the Chic/Milw game and KC/Clev game and open up having Darvish and Bauer.   Those two and Gray are all basically the same price, so I like combining those guys.  Gray might have to go awhile since they exhausted the bullpen yesterday in the extra innings game.

The usual teams look like the early plays today - NY, Wash, Cleveland, Cubs.  I will probably try to use mostly them in the couple cash LUs I cobbled together.  

big entry gpp ideas:  Seattle (of course), TB, Mets, Balt, Det/W.Sox game stack.  

Best BvP were B.Miller, Gardner and Didi, K.Bryant.   Not quite as good as those 4, but the Mets showed up as having some success vs. Gio - Cesp, Bruce and Reyes

Don't think I am going to bother much with night side.  Pretty trash SP options and a Coors game.  Probably throw 50 cents at a couple gpps fading Coors, but I am not going to think about it much.

I have a habit of having 0% of the highest scoring team on the slate the last few days.  

Meanwhile Rendon and Zimmerman combine for 0 in my cash LU.

I have a special talent at gpps.  I had nice fat 5 man Philly stack that went right around the 2 dudes with grand slams.  

I also had 3 Seattle LUs, and paired them with 0s all over the place.  

I couldn't imagine having more than 25cents or $1 on these LUs.  I can laugh it off when it's a quarter.

Going to go Raging Weasel style and throw in a couple cheap 3man/5mans on both sites.  

Right now I have:  FD = Clevinger Santana Gennett Bryant Marte Delmonico Betts JD Mart Votto

DK I am going more Houst/Clev:  Morton/J.Mont  Knapp Encarn Walker Bregman Correa Brantley Ozuna Reddick

 

Also will toss in a couple 25centers for fun.  

Good luck to everybody playing today!

Actually the Yanks did fine. Everyone had 16+ except the 3 guys with zero.( Rendon, Morrison, Descalso)

Sometimes those non thinking on the fly LUs are best. ;)

Not a ton of success today despite having more time to look at stats and stuff.  Still a ton of 0s by using guys like Bryant, JD Mart, and the Astros.  

I do see how I would like these 3-6 man contests more though.  Small sample size obviously, but those has a similar winning line as the gpps did and were just a tad over the 50/50s.  I also like that it makes it likely that you are the only person with 1/2 your lineup.  It makes it more interesting to watch a game when you know that you are the only one that has a guy vs. you and 500 other people in a gpp.  I could see doing a cash LU for $4-5 and entering it in a few 50/50s and one or two of those.

Looks a lot like my lineup for a 3man. Originally had Gray with Thor and had Arenado with the savings.

Verlander Thor Barnhart Velbuena Scooter Seager Ahmed Pham Fowler Goodwin

I did an all day $1 5man.  Of course 1 of the dudes had to have a TB stack.  So his 3 players have about 80pts already.

I put in 4 25 cent LUs on FD.  Have to fire up those Mariner and Brewer stacks!

I also liked the 9123 Angel stack, and I sprinkled in some DBacks
