Gamers 4/27 was rough if you played the recommended lineup… as both Granderson and M. Taylor were out. This allowed me to pivot to Xander Bogaerts who was $2K coming off an injury and then A.J. Pollock who went off.
Even though both recommended starters had bull pens that blew the W for them we still cashed. Business as usual for Saturday
SP – Johnny Cueto SFG — can’t ignore that ERA and K rate plus playing at home.
1B/C – M Cabrera DET— great matchup in the ball park that has given up more runs than any other in the past 5 years
2B – Whit Merrifield KC — great speed/power combination with a good matchup at home
3B – Jed Gyorko STL — Home run or bust, but his price makes sense in the daily game
SS – Andrelton Simmons LAA — he has the best WAR in the majors — counting stats dream
OF – Charlie Blackmon COL – an bad day yesterday, so I’m going to the well again banking on a favorable matchup
OF – J. Lagares NYM – if he plays that’s great value — he often does against lefties
OF – A Judge NYY – after an 0-5 night with 4 Ks expect a 2-3 night with 2 BBs and some power
UTIL – J. Peterson BAL – Jonathan Schoops replacement has done well for the price you pay
Good luck gamers
