Unbelievable. Almost every play I've lost so far was looking great down the stretch, then an epic collapse turns what is looking like a W, into a big fat L. With an inning and a half left in the TB/Bos and a 4 run cushion, Boston explodes for a 7 run bottom of the 8th. Oh well, sometimes the ball doesn't roll your way, and there is plenty of ball to play today.

I'm such a donkey. I didn't even realize I didn't post my White Sox play as official. Oh well cashed that as well but obviously will not count this towards record.

Ozzie will be sitting out again today, and a manager such as Ozzie is deeply missed by the team, largely because he has the ability to fire up his players more effectively than most managers. Houston is not only hitting the ball much better, but they are also getting on base at a substantially higher clip (.260 for Miami compared to .338 for Houston). And last but not least, Miami is severely over valued here. You are seriously going to give me the team playing much better ball at +186. I don't care if they are on the road with a pitcher who has 1 start in the majors (which was a great one btw), this line is where it is because of public perception. Houston's abysmal season last year is still fresh in people's minds, combined with a young inexperienced pitcher and an over rated Marlins team equals an inflated line. Good luck guys.

Thanks for that Spartacus...I take it from your avatar that you are a Jays fan...I'm all in on Brett Lawrie this year on my fantasy teams....hope he can break out soon!

I'm a huge Blue Jays fan. Expect Lawrie to break out real soon. Pitchers have made adjustments, now it's only a matter of time before Lawrie counters those adjustments with some of his own. On the other hand, I truly believe that Alvarez is even better than people give him credit for. Scouts are drooling over this kid, and for great reason. To give you the best comparison I can think of, none other than Doc Halladay. Alvarez may not have the Strike out pitches yet, but this kid is absolutely phenomenal. Got to see him 4 times late last season live, and to say he is spectacular is an understatement. His control is extremely rare for a kid his age, and the guy is a rock. Nothing seems to discourage this kid, and that is dangerous itself. Oh yeah, last but not least, the kid is 21 years old. We are the same age and I couldn't imagine the pressure on this kid. And remember, he is doing this all pitching in the AL East. Don't be surprised if by the end of the season everyone knows who this kid is.

Updated Card:


TB/Bos u8.5 (-115) 3u

San Fran -1 (-121) 3u

Houston (+186) 3u

Toronto -1 (-138) 3u

Cin/Wash o7.0 (-116) 1.5u

Washington TT o3.5 (-123) 1.5u


I don't understand why the total in the Washington game is set at 7 runs. I would have guessed it would be 8/8.5, but only 7? Both pitchers have no faired well against the opposing team, and Arroyo is capable of giving up close to 7 himself. Since the plays correlate and the card is growing, I'll make them 1.5u plays to decrease exposure.
