How have the recommendations been for you? Did my picks help you make it rain dollar, dollar bills? Hope so as I know the discounted pitching recommendations paid off big time and at least Jered Weaver looked better than this:


As for Thursday night, we have just eight games to choose from so the pickings will be a little bit slimmer, but if you are like me I actually like the smaller slate of games because if we nail that sleeper or two play you are almost guaranteed to have a big night. If you get caught in a quandary remember if you have a specific question remember you can always tweet @FantasyNomad and/or post in the comments section below. Don’t forget to bookmark the following three sources to check daily as a compliment to our picks of day.

Starting Pitcher Picks of the Night

R.A. DickeyP$9,000$15,176$7,600Has allowed two or fewer earned runs in five of his last six starts, has recorded seven consecutive quality starts, and KC's offense Royally sucks vs RHP (lowest OPS among AL teams).
Zack WheelerP$7,200$13,804$6,600Like the strikeout upside here, confidence up after good last start, and could be under owned due to the high-risk factor (thus a better GPP play then a cash game one).
Matt ShoemakerP  $5,000The price alone is enticing enough, but add in he has been stellar in his 3 starts and gets a favorable matchup vs the Mariners.

Discounted Hitter of the Night: Angels C.J. Cron

Nick HundleyC$2,500$3,131$2,200Brad Peacock: 5.20 ERA, 13% HR/FB, and 6 BB/9 rates
Jason CastroC$4,000$4,295$3,100Current 4-gm hit streak (6-for-18, .333) and you get the LvsR matchup vs BAL SP U-bad-o Jimenez
C.J. Cron1B$3,900$4,545$2,800Favorable matchup vs SEA SP Mauer as Cron has 7th highest contact rate at 83% among 1B in MLB (min. 20) and is 5-for-14 (.357) with a HR over his last five games
Chris Carter1B$3,400$3,765$2,400coming off a 2 HR game giving him 5 in the month of May and is 4-for-9 over his last two games, and facing RHP Ubaldo Jimenez whom oddly RHH have a better AVG and SLG% against him then lefties. If Carter sits in favor of Marc Krauss consider him as he went 2-for-3 in his one matchup vs Jimenez and he will come at a Big Lot Bargain
Daniel Murphy2B$4,400$6,590$3,200He and teammate David Wright are tied for second in NL in hits with 66 behind Paul Goldschmidt's 68.
Pablo Sandoval3B$4,400$6,470$3,500dude is on fire for details type his name in search box on our home page

Justin UptonOF$5,400$7,878$4,4006-for-9 (.667) w/ a HR in his career versus the struggling Jake Peavy with the game in hitter friendly Fenway
Jose BautistaOF$5,300$8,979$4,000Tough to pass on him with the way he's hitting this season and has against tonight's opponent, James Shields, who is 9-for-28 (.321) w/ 4 HR
Allen CraigOF$4,400$5,586$3,000hitting .345 (10-29) w/ HR, 8 RBI, and 4 R over last 7 games and 2-for-4 vs Vogelsong for what that is worth
