Turns out Yahoo’s fantasy baseball doesn’t count the Twins and Tigers game no matter the format. It’s the Keyser Söze of regular season games, I suppose. ESPN, on the other hand, does count it. So that means only one thing. Pick up everyone from either the Tigers or the Twins, if it could mean a championship for you. Ryan Raburn? Yes, please! Delmon Young? Of course! Fu-Te Ni? Yes, unless you want to get F-U’d royally.
Starting the game are Scott Baker and Rick Porcello, but, at the first sign of trouble, they’ll be lifted. This makes every starter, except for Sunday’s starters for either team, available. Manship, Liriano and Robertson et al (that’s not the Israeli airline) could all see action. Don’t forget possible unlikely heroes if you need any hitting stats. That’s right, this may be the only time you see me fully endorse picking up Gerald Laird, Matt Tolbert and Jose Morales. Even Nick Punto. Well… No, even him. Most importantly, if your opponent needs any stats at all, block them from getting them. So if this means owning Matt Guerrier for no reason other than you’re afraid your opponent might get a vulture win and beat you, then own Guerrier, in the non-biblical sense, of course.
