It is "hump day" at the end of the July, and the dog days of Summer are here. However, there is always time for baseball, and MLB provides a juicy slate this evening.
SB Nation and FanDuel continue to partner on daily fantasy baseball, and we regularly bring you "recommended" lineups. Today, we will break out a winning (we hope) group for the evening slate, and hopefully, things will go well.
As usual, fading my picks may be your best option, so if you do that, I won't be offended in the slightest.
Note: This lineup would be used in a 7:05 pm ET contest.
P - Tyson Ross ($8,500)
C - Matt Wieters ($2,500)
1B - Chris Davis ($3,700)
2B - Jimmy Paredes ($2,600)
3B - Josh Donaldson ($4,700)
SS - Xander Bogaerts ($2,900)
OF - Cameron Maybin ($3,500)
OF - Adam Eaton ($3,700)
OF - Ezequiel Carrera ($2,700)
There aren't a ton of "slam dunk" options, but the game between the Braves and Orioles could provide fireworks. I'm going with Maybin, Davis and Wieters in platoon-friendly match-ups, and the respective starting pitchers can be beaten.
Elsewhere, I'm spending big dollars on Josh Donaldson (because he's a monster) and Adam Eaton, who has a super juicy battle against the hittable Rick Porcello. Cap things off with a red-hot Tyson Ross against the pop-less Mets, and there you have it.
The slogan, as always, is to simply make money, and this lineup can (hopefully) help you get there. Let's do this together.
