We have finally made it to Thursday which is one more day closer to Friday! We’ve got a split slate for Thursday and we want to dig into it a little more! If you’re looking for some more last-minute advice you can follow me on Twitter and DM me (@FantasyAdvice22)
For this daily fantasy baseball season, each day we’ll be writing up a group of pitchers and hitters that we’re considering for our cash and GPP lineups on DraftKings and FanDuel. We’ll also provide a list of stacks to consider. As with any DFS sport, the advice below is relevant for fantasy purposes. A player or team might be better or worse from a fantasy perspective than they are in real life due to match-up, price, park factor, etc. This is important when constructing a roster.
One thing to remember outside of making sure your guy is in the lineup, is to always check the weather. Always. Make this something that is part of your basic research. Baseball games can get postponed! Your players receive no points from postponed games!

Guest blogger Steve Larson shares an essay that was originally published in the Detroit News on 04.02.06
It was the trip of a lifetime to celebrate a lifetime of memories. It was a trip down memory lane through Cooperstown, New York City and Boston to celebrate a lifetime of love for the game of baseball.
The seeds of that love were sowed within the embrace of Tiger Stadium. Some of the happiest days of my youth were spent there with my dad and brother. Who can forget the magical summer of ‘76 when the Bird was the word? Or the roar of ’84 when the Tigers won the World Series right before our eyes? I’ll never forget catching a foul ball during the third inning and the euphoria we all felt as the final out dropped into Larry Herndon’s glove.
Last spring, I called my brother, Eric, to pitch an idea for a trip I always wanted to do with him and Dad. The plan called for the three of us, all scattered across the country (Dad in Florida and Eric in Chicago), to spend a long weekend reconnecting, reflecting and celebrating our love for baseball. Dad and I had never been to Yankee Stadium or Fenway and I knew how special it would be to experience the “House that Ruth Built” and the “Green Monster” with my dad and brother.
The Tigers kicked off the 2017 first year player draft by taking righty Alex Faedo out of Florida with the 18th pick. Faedo was once considered as a possibly #1 pick, however a sluggish start due to injury set him back. The Tigers second pick is an intriguing one as they chose Reynaldo Rivera out of Chipola College. Rivera is a big lefty with raw power and the ability to hit. It will just be interesting to see what he does against more talented players.
Other than that, the Tigers draft looked a little different under Al Avila this year, as the team did show a bit more focus on outfield depth, as the team selected five outfielders in their first 18 picks.
Corey Seager hit 3 homers and added a fourth hit, driving in 6 as the Dodgers won a 12-0 laugher against the Mets.
Manny Machado collected 11 total bases with his 4 hits including 2 homers as the Orioles squeaked past Cleveland, 6-5.
Brandon McCarthy blanked the Mets over 6 innings of 4 hit shutout ball to earn the decision in the Dodgers 12-0 blow out.
Chris Sale pitched into the 9th, finishing with 10 strikeouts over 8 1/3 innings earning the 8-3 win for Boston over Kansas City.
