    Rockies and Diamondbacks players seem like good pickups, per usual
    Just picked up Carlos Gonzalez and Nick Ahmed on free agency

    Corbin crushed an awful Dodgers team.
    I'm short on starters, so I might have to keep him instead of stream. At least till the next start.

    Tomorrow, I like Kyle Gibson in a spot start.
    Mariners look to be without Nelly, and their were awfully cold today


    3b Christian Villanueva in San Diego is somebody on the radar, 3 for 7 3 homers.
    Worth a stash if you have space
    Personally, I don't have room. I'm not dropping Anthony Renton, this early in the season

    looked at my team and thought holy s*** half my roster is off today it's a f****** Friday and this is f****** baseball everybody should be played on a Friday right?

    Ryan Flaherty only 6% owned, 2b for Atlanta, a lefty you can stream against a righty in Coors
    base hit in every game so far
    Looks to be permanent 3b, possibly

    Every pitcher looks hitable later today
    Might be a god day to bet the over in the salami

    Adam Ottavino average is 2 strikeouts per inning at least
    Mid reliever
    cheap source of k's, pad the whip/era
    Colorado Rockies

    A few pitching matchup to exploit
    Tillman for The O's still looks bad
    Sean Newcomb for the Braves looks like a bad matchup in Coors Field
    Stream Yankees and Rockies starting bats
    With the Yankees, problem is that there aren't a lot of Yankees you can stream

    Some heavy Underdog starting pitchers to possibly stream
    Miami Jose Urena is a hard thrower that's going against a Mets team that played late last night

    Detroit Francisco Liriano
    The tigers are feeling great while on their three-game winning streak thus probably able to give Liriano some run support
    Liriano is a lefty and you might want to do some research to see how the Indians bat against lefties even though it's still early in the season
    Of course they are going to get Corey kluber but the Indians are not giving him any run support

    Kansas City Jakob junis
    6 strikeouts last week on the road got the win even though Kansas City has very little offense

    Pittsburgh's Ivan Nova
    Another dog with potential that have a huge bite
    If you see the line on the total moving lower and lower then Nova might benefit from the wind blowing in from the Outfield

    Philadelphia Phillies Michael Franco third baseman
    He got 10 of 11 RBIs this weekend against poor Marlin pitching
    Looks flukey
    But if you're desperate for a 3B you better get him now because he's already 33% owned in fantasy leagues

    he tore up the minor leagues with great numbers
    he could be a nice low cost starting pitcher at times

    I had Sean Newcomb as a late round sleeper in a couple of leagues. After he got shelled in his first game I benched him heading into Coors Field. Of course he goes in and throws 6 innings of shut out ball with 9 K’s.

    I think Car-Go just about done. Hit 7th in the home lineup tonight at Coors Field. He went 1 for 4 with a homerun, but if you didn't see the play, Padres outfielder Cory Spangeberg looked to make the catch at the left field wall but actually pushed the ball over the fence as it snow-coned out of his mitt....would've been a very good catch and he had it, but couldn't hold on.

    Anyway Car-Go now sitting with a .250 batting average. Great fielder but lost his swagger at the plate.

    Definitely you will get no argument from me on that

    However Carlos Gonzalez remains worthy of streaming in rotisserie leagues
    He's a top 30 outfielder
    A cheap home run here and there then stream somebody else who has a matchup you could exploit

    ended up taking Lucchesi on the cheap in a Draftkings lineup today...risky but allows me to take all stud hitters.

    Oakland starting pitcher Sean manaea
    Already 2/3 owned but if you can get him get because the Dodgers have a very weak offense still

    If you like five strikeouts
    Tyler Skaggs of Anaheim will definitely get you five strikeouts as he has in his previous two and and the Texas Rangers will provide that

    Colorado lost for the second night in a row at home to San Diego.

    Car-Go didn't even start against the lefty on the mound. That's the thing, he's got severe splits against LHP (terrible) vs RHP (.300+ avg)....so play him against RHP is the key. He did get in for a pinch-hit in the 8th inning but grounded out.

    ^^^Angels gotta cool down at some point, but looks like decent hitting weather in KC for tonight. On the other hand, the Angels hitters don't have very good Head to Head numbers vs Kennedy in previous meetings, other than Zack Cozart has done well....but that might have been for games played in Cincy.

    Kennedy was ok, gave up 7 hits and 1 run in 6 innings. But Tropeano kept the Royals off-balance. I didn't see that coming.

    are you doing a Season-long league, where you can slot in certain players on a given day and choose other days to keep them on your bench?
