Ladies (one or two reading this) and gentlemen, here is your late game Daily Fantasy Baseball lineup advice for the late games on April 11th, 2013:
Thursday's Top Play: C Buster Posey ($3,500) - Posey found his stroke yesterday going 3-5 in the Giants 10-0 win over the cubbies. His price doesn't reflect last night's performance, so I will gladly start him at his discounted rate.
RotoCole's FanDuel Lineup:
P: Ryan Vogelsong ($6,000) - His offense is hot, the team he's facing is not. It may be tempting to start Aceves at his ultra-cheap price but playing him is like buying a lottery ticket. Vogelsong and Haren are good options at 6K. They were rained out yesterday so the weather remains a concern. Check frequently.
C: Buster Posey ($3,500) - Went 3-5 yesterday and faces a very average pitcher in Scott Feldman.
1B: Adrian Gonzalez ($4,100) - Hasn't been great in his career against Marquis but hasn't been awful either. I like Gonzalez's chances of busting out today.
2B: Howie Kendrick ($3,700) - It's a righty-righty matchup but I like Kendrick more than most 2B today.
3B: Jeff Keppinger ($2,500) - Super cheap and has a 8-16 career line against Dan Haren.
SS: Manny Machado ($3,100) - Starting Manny is so much fun. Even when its Machado and not Ramirez. But seriously, start Machado at this price.
OF: Josh Hamilton ($3,900) - He is now under $4k and I believe today is the day he busts out of his slump.
OF: Raul Ibanez ($3,300) - That Raul is so hot right now. At $3.3K he is hard to sit.
OF: Adam Jones ($4,900) - He has a hit in every game this season. I am convinced if he goes 0-4 today that I am cursed.
Remember, Vogelsong and Posey will be playing in some rainy conditions and a postponement is always possible. Be ready to adjust accordingly.
