The win below is one of my favorite games. It’s a split pot which means I only have to finish in the Top 20.
Letâ€™s take a look at how things will stack up for you today, April 3, 2013.
WEATHER : All Clear
Pitchers Iâ€™ll be using
Gio Gonzalez ($8,900) vs. Marlins : Gonzalez looked great this spring. I look for more of the same verse the Marlins who have difficulties hitting lefties.
Alexi Ogando ($5,400) vs. Houston : I don’t see Ogando going any further than the six, but should strikeout six-to-nine Astros. Not bad for the price. Matt Harvey ($6,100) is also a guy I like a lot today. The potential for strikeouts and going against the Padres could equal pure magic.
Â Catchers Iâ€™ll be using
Joe Mauer ($3,900) vs. Twins : Mauer is 4-for-5 verse Anibal Sanchez. An on-base machine, Mauer is geared to get positive points out of the catches position. You’ll spend a little more, but it’ll be worth it.
Francisco CervelliÂ ($2,700) vs. Red Sox : He should get the start again for the Yankees. With three RBI against Clay Buchholz in six at-bats, again, positive numbers is what I’m looking for out of this position.
1B Iâ€™ll be using
Billy Butler ($3,600) vs. WhiteSox : Butler has dominated Jake Peavy over the course of his career. A .444 (12-27) with three HR and seven RBI.
Freddie Freeman ($4,200) vs. Phillies : A more expensive option, Freeman gives you a little more power and RBI opportunities. Against Roy Halladay he has three HR and nine RBI.
No real good cheap options today.
2B Iâ€™ll be using
Robinson Cano ($4,200) vs. RedSox : Cano has hit.480 against Clay Buchholz. I don’t like the lineup ahead of him, but I’m using one of Lenny’s gut reactions here and spending the money
Omar InfanteÂ ($3,300) vs. Twins : I can’t figure out why he’s $3,300, but is the best of the worse when it comes to cheap option. Make sure to check the lineups before games start and see if there might be a better option
3B Iâ€™ll be using
Miguel Cabrera ($4,500) vs. Twins : Last night I fell into the Beltre Trap, tonight I ride ol’reliable in Cabrera.
Ruben Tejada ($3,100) vs. Padres : I’m trying to roll light here at the SS position. If I can find a cheaper option, based off the lineups that come out, I’ll roll him out.
OF Iâ€™ll be using
Alex GordonÂ ($3,600) vs. WhiteSox : I’m liking at OBP here for Gordon. I’m projecting three-to-five points.
Jacoby EllsburyÂ ($4,200) vs. Yankees : Stolen bases rock in daily fantasy, and I have Ellsbury projected to get at least one, with a run. If he tops out at five-to-seven points, I’ll be happy.
Adam JonesÂ ($3,600) vs Rays : Personally, I hate this guy, but that’s for another day. He hit the ball solid yesterday, had a great spring and is totally worth the $3,600.
Scott Hairston ($3,000) vs. Pirates : His numbers are solid against Wandy Rodriguez. Â As a righty he should get the chance to start. If you’re looking even cheaper, check the daily lineups and go righty/lefty matchup.
