Itâs getting close to that time. Thatâs right, the BOGO sale at Payless! No, itâs the time when you look at your roster and say âI drafted this guy way too high to just drop him after a month.â Thatâs how fake baseball rolls, we donât have the luxury of letting a rookie get his feet under him. Or that starting pitcher who is failing to figure things out. If we do, we lose — plain and simple. These guys donât owe us anything and we shouldnât owe them anything for being a sucktard for a month. So now is the time to look at your roster and your league standing. Go ahead, do it.Â See which ones are the slow starters and show obvious patience, and who are the guys you guessed and guessed wrong on. 80 cents on the dollar is still worth more to me than falling in the standings. So good luck on this weekâs fantasy baseballedness. (Please keep in mind that match-ups and pitchers may change.)

TWO START STARTERS
Justin Masterson (@ KC -Hochevar, Det- Coke) Love isnât a strong enough word, restraining order is though. Fun fact: he is the only player in MLB that was born in Jamaica. Groundball pitchers have long futures in real or fake baseball. xFIP shows some regression but Iâll take 3.50 from him.
Chris Narveson (Cin-Arroyo, @Hou-Norris) Only owned in 45% of ESPN leagues. 80% of which are dead already. Whatâs not to love? Good Lineup. Decent stuff. Owns a scooter, hey wait a second.
Wade Davis (@Min-Blackburn, Ana-Weaver) Gets very overlooked. Most likely a one start guy for most based on the Weaver situation on Sunday. Hey, you could do worse, Philip Humber says hi.
Bud Norris (STL-Westbrook, Mil-Narveson) Bud, why do you hurt me? You look awesome for stints during a game than they string together some hits and you give up a 6 run homer. We stay for the Kâs and leave ya for the WHIP.
Jon Garland (@Fla-Nolasco, SD-Moseley) Back from the dead. Great for a mix and match-up type. Innings gobbler with 10 straight years of double digit wins.Â Yeah, thatâs right I said ten.
Zach Britton (Bos-Buchholz, @CHW-Floyd) Promising start going 3-1. Has the arsenal to be a top of rotation stud, albeit in Baltimore. Watch out for the rookie wall, which should pop up in another 50 innings or so.
Charlie Morton (SF-Cain, @Col-Jimenez) The steakhouse served up a cube steak last outing. I havenât seen tougher match-ups since TKO crew took on Electro Rock.
