MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/29/14

4/29/14 LINEUP I am very annoyed about this loss. I completely missed with Alex Wood in a season worst start. I also selected Lucroy on his day off, and switched out Middlebrooks and Alex Gordon for Parra and Beltre. I lost by twelve, but this was a very winnable game and I definitely gave it […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/28/14

4/28/14 LINEUP I decided to pony up the $9K for Bumgarner at home vs. a light hitting Padres lineup, and he responded with…a 6, an abysmal total. Fortunately for me, the outcome was decided for all intents once Wacha couldn’t factor into the win, and Santana’s second home run sealed it for me. A little […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/26/14

4/26/14 LINEUP We took off on Saturday because I wasn’t feeling well and by the time I was ambulatory, Thomas was engulfed with the tedium of work. Sigh. Onto Sunday, a very lucky outcome for me. Anibal leaves with a finger injury that eventually requires a DL stay. I was parsimonious with my pitching budget […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/24/14

4/24/14 Lineup We shared Kazmir, Jose Bautista (a favorite of Thomas) and the two home run-hitting Josh Donaldson. But the deluge of heavy hitting Baltimore outfielders turned this game into a blowup in a hurry. It was a fortuitous cocktail of luck, home runs, and rock solid pithing. I am gratified with this lineup, my […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/23/14

4/23/14 LINEUP I still would have lost anyway, but huge mistake not keeping Bruce in my lineup with a last minute change to Soriano. Rookie error-you think long, you think wrong. Not the first time I have done that, but I have trusted my instincts more often in recent times and it has paid off. […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/22/14

April 22 is Earth Day and how appropriate, as my team crashed back to Earth after an intrepid showing the previous night. Thomas hung a 59 on me in “Not so fast, my friend” Lee Corso style. I was buried from the jump, as I had no answer for his fireworks and the Cy Young […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/21/14

4/21/14 LINEUP I am a very aggressive owner in regular fantasy sports, constantly scouring the waiver wire and negotiating deals to gain an edge. You are what you eat, so I digest prospect reports to find the next stud to propel my team in the standings. I have been mostly successful but this style of […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/20/14

Minnesota has flashed a surprisingly potent offense with a top 5 ranking in runs scored thus far, destroying early expectations in that regard with April late round/waiver fantasy darlings Chris Colabello, Trevor Plouffe and Brian Dozier leading the way. Well, old perceptions didn’t fade away overnight for me as I selected Ventura with the light […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/19/14

April 19 is my best friend’s birthday. Because of a disparity in work schedule and free time, we hardly see each other anymore. Even with the infrequent gatherings, unlike the near daily hanging out we did as kids, it’s wondrous to reflect on the strong friendship forged over our two decades plus of knowing each […]

MLB Fanduel Lineup 4/18/14

4/18/14 LINEUP I attempted to get as many Rockies and Phillies in my lineup because of the perceived matchup of poor performing pitchers. Well, Pettibone was really bad..unfortunately, I had more Phillies than Rockies so that didn’t work out. The pick that did work out was Rios with a whopping 8.5. The difference by the […]
