Yesterday I only had Donaldson in 1 team; of course you’ll know he went yard 3 times on Sunday. Thankfully Wellington Castillo had a good game too, as well as Mark Trumbo and the trio combined for 80 points.

With a number of good pitchers taking the mound, value picks are a necessity.


P Jake Arrieta (CHC) $12,300

So far this august, the biggest problem for Arrieta has been walks, he’s allowed 13 free passes, and 12 hits. In august his K/9 is 6.26 whilst his K/ER is 3.17.

That means he’s still good and hopefully against the Pirates who are middle of the pack in Runs scored & team batting average he can score 30+ points tonight.

P Matt Boyd (DET) $6,700

Boyd only lasted 4 and 1/3 although he only gave up 1 earned run his last game against the White Sox which was in Chicago, His numbers against the pole hose are bad, however his salary makes him a good pick there’s plenty of upside.

C Steven Vogt (OAK) $3,000

Homered in his last game, and today faces a pitcher he’s not seen before.

1B Albert Pujols (LAA) $3,600

He is 6/16 with a HR.

2B Scooter Gennett (MIL) $2,800

Gennett is 5/17 with 3 doubles.

3B Kyle Seager (SEA) $4,300

Against Darvish he is 9/25 with 4 doubles & 8 RBI’s.

SS Corey Seager (LAD) $5,500

Off of Gray he is 5/8 with a HR.

OF Kole Calhoun (LAA) $3,300

Off of Straily he is 2/5 with a home run.

OF Brock Holt (BOS) $3,400

Holt will probably bat lead-off and so his $3,400 could easily score you 7 points.

OF JD Martinez (DET) $5,100

Against Shields he is 9/21 with 3 doubles and a home run.


J.D. Martinez could be replaced by Carlos Gonzalez same Price however “Car Go” is 1/6 with 4 K’s against Maeda.

Maeda will be a low percentage pick, and could be worth a play in a 25 cent contest as a speculative bet.


I’d hope this team do better than season averages,

My hopes

P Jake Arrieta (CHC) – 30

P Matt Boyd (DET) – 25

C Steven Vogt (OAK) – 8

1B Albert Pujols (LAA) – 8

2B Scooter Gennett (MIL) – 8

3B Kyle Seager (SEA) – 10

SS Corey Seager (LAD) – 16

OF Kole Calhoun (LAA) – 8

OF Brock Holt (BOS) – 8

OF JD Martinez (DET) – 16


That would mean 137 points, and hopefully I’ll have at least 3 HR’s in this line up.
