Really just five games MLB? If you are like me, Monday probably left you jonesing for a larger player pool, which we get tonight with 15 games to choose from. There is an eclectic group of pitchers going tonight as you have a couple top aces to choose from, a few former aces, and quite lot of young arms with some upside which in turn should provide a lot of different angles to consider as we look for some bats to fill out the roster. So let’s get into it, and remember if you have a specific question remember you can always tweet @FantasyNomad and/or post in the comments section below.

@RealSweetLou247 @justinboone @allinkid @4for4_John @mikeblewitt Cadet's value, if he has any, would be in PPR formats not standard btw

@mnorrad @jcraig24 you see the match with no fans?

@RealSweetLou247 best bet is to find a team who lacks some depth and try and get a 2 for 1 deal done with them
