The Daily Fudge : April 15

The Daily Fudge : April 15
Print Friendly

The Daily Fudge is back! After a week of no internet, just my awesome 3G on my phone, I’m here to help make you money and from making yourself look like an ass in the Daily Fantasy Baseball games.  Since I don’t play on the weekends (family time) you’ll see below the games I did play from April 8-12 going 4-1.

Notice after I lost on Thursday, I lowered my game purchase down to $50. I do this because I like to employ a little money management strategy. Because I’m up 45% on my investment, after taken a hit I just want to try and win back the money I lost. Those that have known me for a while know that I’m not the biggest risk taker. I like a good play or player and try to roll with that based off of information I’ve been able to gather so I can put together a solid team.

My Investment (Total amount paid to play) : $905(16 games total)

Winning totals : $1315(11 games won)

Total Profit : 45%

Thursday April 11



Friday April 12



Here’s a look at the players that I like going into Monday’s matchups. Remember we have an early start today in Boston.

Pitchers I’ll be “Targeting”

Tom Milone ($6,800) vs. Astros : At home against a Houston Astros team that averages 10 strikeouts per game (12 games, 121 strikeouts) oh yes, I likey!!!

Lance Lynn ($6,300) vs. Pirates : Lynn had 10 strikeouts in his last outing which is what I like to call “The Drool Factor.” You save $500 here, but using Lynn over Milone, buyer beware. Lynn to me is a loose cannon in daily leagues because I’m never sure which player I’ll get.


Catchers I’ll be using

Yadier Molina ($3,600) vs. Pirates : Molina is 4-for-8 against Pittsburgh Pirates’ starter James McDonald which includes a homer and three RBI. Since I’m saving money on pitching today I may throw some bones Molina’s way.


Bargain Catcher

Jason Castro ($2,400) vs. A’s : Hey did you know that Castro is a decent contact hitter? Prior to his 0-for-5 over his last five at-bats, Castro had a six-game hitting streak and averaged three points per-game for fantasy owners.  I like positive numbers out of my bargain basement players.


1B I’ll be using

Adrian Gonzalez ($4,300) vs. Padres : One of the hottest players in the game right now, Gonzalez over his last seven games is batting .423 with two homers and nine RBI; he also has three, three-hit games during that span.


2B I’ll be using

Brandon Phillips ($4,600) vs. Phillies : This is a tough call for me. On one hand I want to roll the ride that is Brandon Phillips right now. On the other hand, he may be too expensive for this position. As I build my team, I’ll use him to try and build around, but if I can’t I’ll roll with my bargain 2B.


Bargain 2B

Mark Ellis ($2,800) vs. Padres : Ellis is 3-for-6 against San Diego Padres starter Eric Stultz. Yes Bob Barker, the price is right…bitch!


3B I’ll be using

Ryan Zimmerman ($3,600) vs. Marlins : Zimmerman sucks right now which is the reason I want to roll with him. It’s been 10-games since he’s had a multi-hit game. This is one of those stock market tips where you buy low on a guy. No reason for a bargain 3B, I’m bangin it out with Zimmerman.


Shortstop I’ll be using

Jimmy Rollins ($3,800) vs. Reds : Rollins has good power numbers verse Bronson Arroyo (two homers and five RBI) who’s been know to give up the long ball.


Bargain SS

Clint Barmes ($2,200) vs. Cardinals : Don’t laugh! Barmes has hits in back-to-back games and is 4-for-13 (.308) against St. Louis Cardinals starter Lance Lynn. Some times you have to bust out the “Coups.” If you’re not sure what “Coups” are then you’re problem not hip enough to read the rest of this article.


OF I’ll be using

Giancarlo Stanton ($3,900) vs. Nationals : It’ll be BOOM or BUST for owners of Stanton today. Lifetime against the Washington Nationals starter, Jordan Zimmerman, Stanton is 3-for-14, but those three hits have been homers.

Melky Cabrera  ($3,400) vs. WhiteSox : A great price for a player who has two or more hits in four out of his last six games.

Mark Trumbo ($3,400) vs. Twins : Weather may be a concern here, but Trumbo likes him some of Minnesota Twins starter Kevin Correia.


Bargain OF

Marlon Bryd ($2,700) vs. Rockies: Bryd has been knocking the piss out of the ball lately. Yeah I said, so what!
