Happy Wednesday! I wish everyone luck in their early endeavors, but we are going to tackle some promising night games tonight.
I love the Red Sox, and I love the Yankees... get as many of these players into your lineups as possible tonight, because I think a lot of our studs are going to go BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMM tonight!
MLB Daily Leagues Lineup Picks for August 21, 2013
P - Anibal Sanchez - There's not much in terms of pitching today. Sanchez is a huge favorite against the Twins, who look to be giving up. The one hot bat they've got (Morneau) has a negative history against Sanchez. I think he is by far the safest choice to get 15+ points for you tonight.
1B - David Ortiz - Barry Zito plain old sucks! Sorry, but he does... lefties, righties, home, away-- it doesn't matter. I honestly think I could take him deep a few times in ten at bats.
2B - Dustin Pedroia - See above, and prepare to score three runs at a minimum.
3B - Alex Rodriguez - Since the human lighting rod has come back, the Yankees have all of a sudden become one of the best-hitting teams in the league. R.A. Dickey is not the same pitcher he was a year ago, and I see the Yankees continuing their hot-hitting ways.
OF - Jacoby Ellsbury - I'm trying not to get redundant here, but I think you get the point-- The BoSox are going to smash Zito.
OF - Curtis Granderson - Dickey has let up 20 homers to lefties on the year! Get the Grandy Man in your lineup!
As always, remember to check your MLB daily lineups before they lock and make sure you are doing your own research, too, for optimal performance! The most successful daily leaguers are grinders who are constantly tweaking their lineups as the day goes on and fantasy news gets released. Good luck today, RotoBallers!
