Daily Fantasy Baseball – Closing Time

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Tee Off on Phils

It is appropriate that the Phillies should be making golf plans right now for October, because teams are teeing off on those not named Lee or Hamels. So when I see Ethan Martin starting for the Phillies against an Atlanta team that wants to be ready for the playoffs, I...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Recent Gallardo Results

In looking at pitchers for daily fantasy baeball on FanDuel tonight I am drawn to Brewers P Yovani Gallardo ($7,100).  Gallardo is striking out 7.11 batters per nine innings this year, but over the last six games that has been 7.65K/9IP.

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Lee in Gray Area

Looking at pitchers today for FanDuel one cannot help but look at Phils P Cliff Lee ($9,800) as a starter at FanDuel. Lee was absolutely sick as a starter his last game out. Almsot as if he is treating these last couple of games as his own personal playoffs. And the...

Daily Fantasy Baseball – Affording Jimenez

Cleveland P Ubaldo Jimenez ($9,200) is the second most expensive pitcher availabe on FanDuel tonight after Yu Darvish.
