Just because it is Monday does not mean you can’t be happy right? What will make you happy you ask? How about going to bed at the end of the day with a fist-full of cash that you just won on DraftKings ? Your already registered aren’t you? Here go now ill wait …. Back already? Guess what? I am gonna send you right back so you can do the smart thing and get in this sweet spot drawing, just a few pesos to get in and a whopping $400k up for grabs. That will buy you a lot of good memories that you will probably forget in Tijuana hombre.

Lets work on getting you that money by checking out the best available lumber for Monday. You don’t have to take my word for it, you can do your own homework with our handy dandy Hitter-Tron and Stream-O-Nator.


Wilin Rosario, C: $3,800 – The Rockies are among the best run scoring teams in baseball right now and I dont personally believe in the opposing pitcher Stults. Wilin gets #2 ranking on the ol Hitter-Tron today.

Evan GattisC: $3,700 – Normally I wouldn’t recommend Gattis due to his strikeout potential but love the fact he is facing Roberto Hernandez tomorrow.

First Base

Chris Davis1B: $4,900 – I love Chris Archer, Davis opposing pitcher so that should tell you something about the value here at a relatively cheap $4,900. The HitterTron loves Davis today ranking him #1 among first basemen.

Freddie Freeman, 1B: $4,900 – Freddie is on Fire and as mentioned with Gattis love his match-up with Hernandez.

Second Base

Brandon Phillips 2B: $3,700 – The Hitter-Tron says yes to Phillips as the highest ranked Second Basemen for today so I have to agree with this lovely price tag.

Robinson Cano 2B: $4,000 – I don’t need to consult the crystal ball to take someone with Cano’s abilities at such a bargain basement price.


Elvis AndrusSS: $4,300 – Hittertron says number one shortstop today. I say love the fact he is opposing a rookie who the Stream-O-Nator lists at the second to last choice tomorrow.

Erick AybarSS: $3,200 – My value pick for the day, I’ll take a few points for a few bucks here.

Third Base

David Wright3B: $4,400 – I am picking on Josh Collmenter and his first start for the Dbacks here, and, well David Wright.

Evan Longoria 3B: $4,700 – Hitter-Tron’s official number one for today since Beltre is injured. Against Chen in Camden, Yes Please.


Alex RiosOF: $4,000 – What a value, What a steal, opposing pitcher is a young’n. BUY BUY BUY

Carlos Gomez OF: $5,600 – Me and the tools are just not seeing eye to eye on this one but Gomez and the Brew Crew are rolling!

Mike TroutOF: $5,500 – Cheaper than Gomez for the best player in baseball. Crazy not to buy here.

Giancarlo Stanton OF: $4,800 – Dude simply hits baseballs farther than you got on your prom date.

Lets take a look at the guns available tomorrow

Jordan ZimmermannP: $9,800 – The Stream-O-Nator loves him in Miami. My words of warning he got absolutely shelled last time out against guess who??? The Marlins.

Josh CollmenterP: $6,000 – Yes I picked on him earlier and yes its his first start so I don’t expect him to go super deep into the game. However the Mets strikeout ALOT. Lookin at the value play here.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

Today looks really good everywhere except for Pittsburgh @ Cincinnati where there is a 60% chance of rain and T-Storms all day. If you followed my advices that shouldn’t matter too much anyway. Thankfully, the chance of snow in Milwaukee is dome-proofed.  Snow in April?  I hear you smugly chortling, Al Gore…

Doing Lines in Las Vegas

Ill take the [email protected] (8) and [email protected] (7) games. The Braves have been slugging behind Upton and Freeman and as previously mentioned Roberto Hernandez LOL. Colorado is a good run scoring team even in Petco.

  1. JJ says:

    What do you think of starting Garza @STL today? He has great career numbers against the cards. It just scares me a bit.

    • J-FOH says:

      @JJ: Me too, I passed on him in Draft Kings today

    thereason says:

    @JJ i took a pass on Garza too because he was good last time out and is inconsistent as hell. I figure its about time he layed a turd and i wasnt going to pay $9400 for a turd.

  3. Pacochu says:

    I really have not had a lot of luck going cheap on pitching, so I’m spending on Zimm and Santana. There are a lot of cheaper guys, but they just don’t generate more than 12-15 points. That doesn’t help you win in Draftkings.

    Devin Mesorasco as a catcher is cheap at $3,000 and getting the start tonight. He’s been solid since returning and was huge yesterday. Just stay on top of the weather to make sure the game gets going with rain coming in tonight.

    Ben Zorbrist ($4,400) isn’t cheap and the Hittertron isn’t exactly loving him, but he’s 10-23 lifetime against Chen with a homer. He’s also gotten points in his last seven games including 32 yesterday.And he’s hitting lead off.

    I love my man JB Shuck ($2,200!). He’s hitting lead off and in has scored 13,3 ad 18 points in his first three games since being called up. That allows you to spend on a bigger name while still having a great chance at scoring some points.
