We are back!!!! Sorry for the lack of the playbook while in Los Angeles for the Starstreet Fantasy Baseball Championship, we got a little distracted (you would have too let's be honest).   I would highly recommend if ever given a chance to attend a party there it will be an unforgettable experience.  Jeff Mans (@jeff_mans), Ray Flowers (@baseballguys) and I (@tedschuster) shared a few pictures on twitter that we could so check them out (couldn't share them all if you know what I mean).

We move onto today's games.  The pitchers are nothing special today and so not one of them really stand out.  James Shields and Chris Tillman lead the way as they have a decent match-up and have been throwing the ball well after rough starts to the season.  Jeff Samardzija scares me a bit after a rough outing but the strike outs could be there against Houston and Tanner Roark has been solid particularly at home but must go on the road tonight so it downgrades him a bit tonight for me.

For the hitters, I don't think I remember a night where the first base position has been this bad.  It is usually one of the hardest positions to narrow down but even the options listed are nothing special.  I find myself going Allen Craig quite a bit just for the value and his career numbers vs. J.A. Happ.   The third base position is loaded with a ton of great options to go along with the outfield as well.  With the value at the other positions on the infield, you should be able to load up some top quality outfielders. My top hitters for tonight are Adrian Beltre and Carlos Gomez and if you choose to stack the red-hot Marlins and Brewers would be the teams to target.

Good Luck tonight!!!

it happens where top pitchers have rough stretches...they will catch fire again.

TJD 

Uhhgg, seems like every night I pick the 'best pitcher' going he gets shelled! Frustrating to stay the least. Guess the stars will all line upfor me one day.

Sean Cedar 

Justin Morneau and Rockies water main night killed the mojo.

Ted Schuster 

he was close to being in there if that makes you feel any better

Bob 

Derek Norris notably absent from the playbook!!
