    So hows everyone's first couple days of MLB been?

    First two days have been pretty good for me. Scored a 50 on FD the first day, cashed in everything and took $10 from a $1 gpp.
    Yesterday I got 33 on FD, Cashed in everything and took $ 2.50 from a gpp.

    A Detroit stack would've worked well today. I'm going with a couple Giants, A's, and Rockies hitters and then Carrasco for my pitcher.

    Help me do the baseball.

    Also wondering who everyone likes for Master's this weekend. Was hoping to do a calcutta but no one has stepped up to organize.

    For cash games you pretty much always pay up for your pitchers. Monday I had Kluber, yesterday I had Grienke, today I'm going with Carrasco. With pitchers you're looking for two things, wins and Ks. A win is worth 4 points on FanDuel which is equal to 4 innings pitched so typically you want to find a pitcher that's on a team that has a good shot to take the W. Then you're looking for pitchers going against teams with high k rates. Today that's the Astros and the Cubs. With hitters wOBA is the best stat to look at then focus on splits based on the hand the pitcher the batter is facing. Stacking is typically recommended. Grabbing a couple batters that bat anywhere between 1-6 on a team that's likely going to have big day is a good strategy. The last thing you want to look at is Vegas over unders for the game. Those are typically good indicators if you can expect a good amount of runs to be scored in each game so you can target the games with the highest over under. Always pay attention to weather too. The worst feeling is stacking a game and then having it rained out.

    Anyone in the million dollar DraftKings masters event? Me and buddy combined to put together like 6 entries. It's real hard to pick only 6 golfers per team.

    Here's what I put together based on the DraftKings spreadsheet on Fantasypros. I'm not expecting much early, will probably enter a $1 cash game a day until I feel confident that I know what I'm doing. Basically just sorted by $/point and then went back and upgraded where I could because I was way under budget.

    B. MCCarthy
    J. Odorizzi
    B. Posey
    C. Robinson
    L Valbuena
    A. Ramirez
    T. Tulowitzki
    M. Brantley
    C. Gomez
    G. Stanton

    I see how important pitchers are based on scoring, but FP has my guys 1-2 today. I'll see how reliable that is.

    Baseball is not a sport to play based on projections and this is coming from someone who plays every other sport using projections for players. Yesterday every projection had Mat Latos as the best pitcher for price and he got destroyed. Hitters vary so much in their scores that if you are playing cash games you have to pick a decent pitcher.

    Makes sense, less likely for a pitcher to have an off night than a hitter.

    Also just entered the DK $1M contest for the Masters. Based on a couple articles I read online and golfers that I like and want to win. I am exactly Draft King's target audience. I wish it were football season again so I could actually make money.

    I didn't have time yesterday and played Latos in 3 50/50 and needless to say I didn't pay attnetion to my team after Latos gave up 6/7 runs in 1st and got yanked.

    Yeah, my brother did the same thing and said if he had even gotten a zero he would've cashed in everything.

    Don't get me wrong any player, even pitchers can have an off night but their variance is much lower.

    Scored 155 for the early games with a 1-5 and 9 hitter stack for Detroit and had Arrietta and Sanchez. Only problem was I was a pussy and entered in 2 $1 50/50s, a $1 GPP and 2 Quarter Arcades. I just wanted to test out a big time stack vs a pitcher that wasn't projected to do so well. $27 for a $3.50 isn't too bad :chatzy:

    Man I love baseball. Ended up cashing everything easily, finished in the top 150 of a gpp, and won a quintuple up.

    Not loving the top pitchers today because they're facing each other so it's hard to pick who'll get those extra points for the W.

    Strausburg. Harvey isn't going over 200 innings this season and has a 90 pitch limit, granted most do this early, but his is a hard ceiling comparatively. His bats are also shit tier bad, K prone. Which bats you take on FD will be key.

    On DK when Burnett is good he's easily the #2, had a good spring, but I don't trust him being that old, that park, vs a decent power LU. I think there's a good value play in the early slate. Only playing early games.

    I'll probably end up with him but the Nats hitting has been suspect so far with Werth and Rendon out making it more difficult for me to feel confident that Strasburg will get that W.

    I used to play both Fanduel and Draftkings. But Draftkings is a much better operation imo. Going to make the move over their full-time. Especially for MLB.

    Basketball is super easy right now since all the sharks moved on to baseball if anyone wants to still play it.

    Kuchar (12.42%)
    Henley (15.27%)

    Surprised to see such high ownership of so many of my guys. Looks like I wont be taking the million home alone. Is there a place I can look up most owned?

    Cashed in baseball last night. :beerchug:
