You are going to look at the names in today's DFS Playbook and think I have lost the last remaining marble I had left upstairs. But you have to understand that there are only five games in MLB today and thus there ain't a whole lot to select from. It goes without question that Stephen Strasburg is the top pitcher going tonight and the good news is that you can still have a quality lineup even with using Mr. Strasburg. 

My strategy for the five games tonight is basically a cash grab. I rarely play in more tournaments than I do cash games but tonight I am going to swing for the fences on the sites where my bankroll can afford it and try and make a major splash. What I am going to be doing mostly is using Strasburg and then stacking the Milwaukee Brewers hitters tonight against Mike Minor. The Brewers have a bunch of lefty killers in their lineup and are seeing a southpaw for the second consecutive day and thus are my #1 stack for tonight. 

So, here is the DFS Playbook for Monday May 19th:
