Good news bad news situation here. Good news is I actually had my best night yet with 128.55 points. Been averaging around 100 during the cold streak but we ratcheted it up last night.

Bad news, it was 2 points short of cashing in the Tuesday Slugfest. Didn’t get a single dollar out of it. Lost my $33 entry. Extended the cold streak another day. Confidence dropping, positive outlook non-existent. Goes to show just how god damn good your lineup needs to be to make some money.
Anyway let’s move on to tonight.
Net Winnings: +$96 (Don’t let the plus sign fool you, all profits from one single night).
Tonight’s tournament: $140K Payoff Pitch ($27 entry)
Guys I like –
P Jason Hammel $7.7K
As much as I’m pulling for my boy Harvey and for the Mets to actually take a game in this series, facts are facts. They can’t hit shit right now. It’s going to be 45 at Wrigley with the wind blowing in. Of course that also makes Harvey a great target as usual with huge K upside, but I like going down to Hammel at almost 3K cheaper for 6-8 Ks and a win.
P Jimmy Nelson $6.1K
Kind of a gut pick but if I can get a pitcher this cheap with 12 K upside against an un intimidating lineup I’m going to jump on it. If Abreu sits tonight that’s just an added bonus.
SS Troy Tulowitzki $4.5K
Not a popular move to take Rockies away from Coors, also a lot of people like to punt the SS spot with so many shitty options. Think I’m spending up for Tulo facing a lefty tonight.
1B Chris Davis $4.5K
3B Manny Machado $4.4K
This Toronto/Orioles series has been money offensively and Machado is hot hot hot right now. Davis is boom or bust but has a nice little bust/boom/bust/boom pattern going. After a 0 point day yesterday you know what that means. Plus, kind of a small sample size, but he’s 4-4 with 2 home runs off Sanchez. Is that good? Is that something that might make a good target?
OF Kole Calhoun $4.1K
The Angels offense has stunk but they gotta explode at some point right? Might as well do it against Jordan Lyles.
OF Chris Colabello $2.9K
Scored fantasy points in all 7 games since being called up, 4 of those double digit point games, multiple hits in 5 out of 7. Bottom line is he’s on fire, playing in a game with a big total and DK just refuses to raise his price. Ride him while he’s hot.
