What a beautiful day to win some money playing daily fantasy baseball. Of course, it is not really about the money but of all the side dishes in life money has got to be one of my favorites. Today we get ten games on the night card which is plenty to work with on the hitting side. However, pitchers tonight are extraordinarily random tonight other than Clayton Kershaw against the Diamondbacks. Although we all know that Kershaw will be majorite owned I cannot rightfully recommend using another starting pitcher in cash games tonight. In tournaments such as DraftKings $27 Payoff Pitch or Fanduel's $25 Strikeout you could use any variety of starters including the erratic Tim Lincecum or even a big contrarian play in the Indians Josh Tomlin. Although neither made it to the DFS Playbook tonight, they make for solid enough options if you are playing multiple tournaments tonight. 

As far as the hitting goes tonight I am once again not going to pay the premium for the Rockies bats such as Troy Tulowitzki, Charlie Blackmon or even Carlos Gonzalez tonight. I told ya'll to stay away from them last night and it worked wonders and ever Rockies stack hit the dirt HARD as the Vegas over/under of 10 missed by a scant six points. I am feeling another under tonight as the line sits at 9.5 currently. I am sure the Rockies will score more runs tonight but not at the premium by which they are priced at once again. The only Rockies player in the Playbook tonight is Drew Stubbs who is hitting second and crushes bad LHP. 

Without futher boring reasoning, here is the DFS Playbook for Saturday May 17th:
