Ladies (one or two reading this) and gentlemen, here is your late game Daily Fantasy Baseball lineup advice for all games on April 29th, 2013:
One Plus Player for Monday:
Carlos Pena - Super cheap at $2,700, he's 14-for-43 with 6 HR against Pettitte
RotoCole's Primary Fanduel Lineup:
P: Wade Davis ($5,300) - Faces a weak Indians lineup with only one hitter (Reynolds) who has good historical numbers against him; I like Davis's recent performances and he's 2-0 with a 2.89 ERA and 1.13 WHIP in two games against the Tribe.
C: Victor Martinez ($3,000) - 3-for-5 in his one game against Pelfrey (who has been atrocious this year); you can see I like the Tigers.
1B: Prince Fielder ($4,700) - 5-for-14 lifetime against Pelfrey with a HR. I like his chances to hit a bomb tonight.
2B: Robinson Cano ($4,600) - Lucas Harrell is getting smoked by left-handed hitters this year to the tune of an .895 OPS.
3B: Miguel Cabrera ($4,900) - Barely gone a game without an RBI + Pelfrey has a 7.94 ERA on the year = Miggy will own Pelfrey.
SS: Pete Kozma ($2,300) - Kozma has a 7-game hit streak going, so he's an OK cheap option that allows me splurge on other positions.
OF: Austin Jackson ($4,000) - Jackson has been HOT; he is 2-for-4 against Pelfrey, and Pelfrey stinks.
OF: Brett Gardner ($3,300) - Again, Harrell is getting owned by lefties
OF: Ichiro Suzuki ($2,900) - Again again, Harrell is owned by lefties, and I like Ichiro's chances to break out against him.
