Welcome back fantasy baseball champs! Go ahead and take Hellickson on the hill today, as he is battling the Pirates. At $6,000, you leave significant space for a lineup of hitters that are dialed in at the plate and playing in favorable ballparks. With Norris great start and protection in the Padres lineup, he needs to be in yours for $3000. I don’t think I need to tell you about Adrian Gonzalez, I picked him over Votto today because of pitcher matchup. Votto will be going up against Arrieta, who has been dominant this year. Take Gonzalez at $4,300.
Wong and Carpenter are hitting in the Brewers ballpark today, and that’s one of the best parks to hit in. They are also facing Fiers, who is 0-3 for the Brew Crew with an ERA of 6.75. Carpenter is hitting .388 and needs to be in your lineup. Spend $4,100 for Carpenter and $2,700 for Wong today. Take Bogaerts at $3,000! He’s hitting in Camden Yards today against Bud Norris with an ERA of 17.42.
Upton and Padres are going up against Baker. Upton will stay hot and look to continue last night’s 5 RBI show.
Matt Holiday is a solid choice at $3,200. Again, he is going up against Fiers and will have an opportunity to drive Carpenter home a few times.
You’ve been thrifty with your budget and now you can splurge. Take Mike Trout for $5,100 against the Rangers. Trout needs to be in your lineup everyday if you can budget for him.
I hope you enjoy the advice. Don’t spend your winnings just in one place. Enjoy!
