P – Marcus Stroman (vs. Baltimore Orioles): $7,700. I wouldn’t typically suggest starting a pitcher against the Orioles offense, but I think Stroman can handle them.
The pitching match-ups are brutal on Tuesday, so Stroman could be a steal at such a low price point. I’m taking a huge risk here, but I’m hoping the lower price point on Stroman will allow me to afford some elite bats to make up for the difference.
P – Ervin Santana (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $8,000. Santana doesn’t have much history against the Brewers, but can they really be that difficult to get out? They are currently the 26th best offense in baseball and Santana is a crafty veteran.
I’m strictly playing a match-up here and hoping Santana can take care of a less than mediocre offense.

Now that we’re a couple weeks in to the season, besides the amazing start by rookie Trevor Story, let’s take a look at some other players from the NL East that are hot starts and some that aren’t to this point.
Nick Markakis, OF – Leading the team in hitting (.333), RBI (12), Runs (7), and OPS (.956)
Freddie Freeman, 1B – Hitting just .167, with 6 hits in 36 at bats, 1 homer, 4 RBI, and 11 K’s
Julio Teheran, SP – The teams “ace” is 0-2 with a 6.35 ERA in 3 starts, giving up 4 homers, walking 8, and with hitters batting .250 again.

Tigers/Indians + Cubs Eliminated From MLB Shutout Survivor 2016: But Cubs Have 10/11 Variations Complete In MLB Runs Scoring Survivor
So I said last at the end of the last week that the Cubs were poised to win the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor competition, and now they are just 1 run variation short (they need 3 runs in a game).
They could win the category tonight when they renew their NL Central rivalry with the St. Louis Cardinals.
Cleveland was eliminated by a 6 – 0 shutout on Sunday as well. The New York Mets took 2 of the 3 games in the Interleague series. Since the Tribe has played so few games, they were assigned the 18th place finish already.
Finally, the Tigers were bageled 1 – 0 by Dallas Keuchel and the Houston Astros. Detroit is also tied for last place in the MLB Runs Scoring Survivor – with owning 5 different results with the Padres, Rays and Jays.
Quite surprising with their potent offense, that Toronto has not tallied 8 runs in a game yet, it is believable they have not scored zero or runs though. Read the rest of this entry
