Rough night when 188 pts is barely hanging on to the cash line.  Up $7 on Draft at least. 

ETA:  make that 194 barely hanging on...

Doing my usual today - 3 entries in the 3max.   I am currently looking at the 20mph winds in KC and StL, and wondering if I have the balls to play Bundy since I know the Oak stack will be hella popular as well.

Yeah I've already put in a Bieber/Leave with Oak/Seat $.25er early.

Well, the play Bundy and fade Oak experiment not looking great. 

Be warned- I am on Atl tonight, so adjust your lineups accordingly. ;)

One of these days the chalk stacks aren't going to hit, right? 

Yeah on the day you load up on them. K Davis has been in my lineup for like a week but keeps krushing it so will keep riding him.

Used a $.25 free ticket for this flyer and calling it good for today- too much bad pitching and weather.

Gray,Godley, Jansen,Alonso,Cano,Escobar,Swanson,Conforto,Jones,Lagares. Will likely have to tinker once lineups come out.

This is usually the case for me when I try to hop on Coors bats.

Good news and bad news. Even with Leake getting 6+ points I scored 171.95 and took 1st/118. Bad news is entered wrong contest so only won a $25 entry into a basketball tourney on 5/30. Still a good return on $.25 but need to make it count.

Played a Quintana/Samardja with Bos/Ariz lineup in the player appreciation freeroll that scored 112 and cashed for $5. So for the day basically won $30 on zero in.

NIce!! 

Got trashed on FD - yeah, I played a Boston P :bag: - but a little over 2xed on DK.  

Looks like tonight will probably be chalky Oak stack night again, so I have to think about that.  I guess with 12 games, ownership might not be too crazy and it's easier to find low owned players to go with chalky stacks.   SPs don't look that stellar again tonight though.

What's making it so tough to win on DK this year is all the bats are priced up. 3.7k is like the cheapest you can get a usefull player for where last year you could find a C or SS in the mid 2k range to help. I'm fine with paying up for studs but paying up for scrubs is tough. I've been using Cano almost every lineup as he's been one of a few usable bats in the 3.7k or less range. I've been thinking I might just throw in the cheapest C each day whether he's going to play or not just to have more money for more impactful positions. That's another reason besides being on fire that Oak bats are being used so much, they are usually cheaper than comparable players.

All of this 100%.  It also sucks that all the Cs feel like they are about 1K more than last year.  Like you said, even the ####tiest ones are 3.7K most days.  

Not sure how people are getting any studs in their LUS this year.  I feel like after I put in my SPs, I have 4.1K left, which was good last year, but this year with everybody at 3.7 and up, I feel like I can only get in 1 stud.  Dudes like Mancini and Renfroe are +4.5K?  Those were the type of guys I loaded up with in the mid 3Ks last year.

Looks like NY, Bost, Oak, Tex, and maybe Houst will be chalky?

I guess in gpps, that means I like Philly and Seattle?  I also might put a couple odds ones together against what I think might be chalky SPs so maybe KC, White Sox or Balt?  Just doing some fun 25cent LUs tonight.

In addition to Bos,Oak,Tex and Yanks I also like the Mets again.

At SP not thrilled about the top guys. Like Corbin but weather could be an issue so not worth the risk. Going with a mix of Thornton,Bettis,Happ and Keller. Arrietta and Giolito worth a shot too.

Between the 2 sites it was a break even night.  Won a 3man on the late slate on draft, so I guess that puts me up $1.50 on the night.   Looking at the stats I had 4 KC stacks on FD, but it was the R-R that was popping so I had 0 Gordon.  Also, my luck with cheaper SPs continued, so that didn't help my cause.   I have some time this morning, so I might try to dig a little deeper today and see if anything sticks out.

Went with Keller as my cash SP on FD and cashed both 50/50s(+$3.20)

Played ,2 $.25ers on DK that didn't as 2nd SP and bats failed me.

@Raging weasel - how has Ross looked this year?  I was thinking that using both the SPs in that cold game today might be a good idea.  Could use one with Snell, or use both and load up on huge bats?

Surprisingly good but so did Zimmerman before he got rocked.

On FD can only use Snell in the all day slate. If I get some time may play the main there and go with Strahm as my SP and load up bats.

Keep in mind the weather looks dicey in the Oak/Tex game.

Tried again yesterday and hit 2 2x contests and min cashed a couple gpps on the early slate.  missed on the 25 cent entries I tried last night.  

Tonight's SPs are bad, but still have 4 WTF 25cent placeholders for the night.  I will probably try my usual of fading Coors for the most part and taking teams I like at lower ownership.  IF I remember right, I think statistically game one of a Coors series tends to underperform, but people still flock to those bats so teams like Milwaukee, Dodgers, Rays, and Mariners will be lesser owned.  Right now I am leaning towards just trying the 2 SPs in the Cin/SD game, or go super low % and try a P in the Colorado game.
