SideLeague’s MLB Fantasy Plays for 8/15

Pitchers

Madison Bumgarner – MadBum is at home tonight and for some reason he does WAY worse at home than he does on the road. With that being said, I’m willing to roll the dice on him tonight and you should too. This Phillies team isn’t anything to be afraid of.

Zack Greinke – Milwaukee can go off in any game, but I believe that Greinke is good enough to avoid getting beat up tonight.

Lance Lynn – It’s Lynn’s turn to face the abysmal Padres offense. He’s not the best pitcher St. Louis has, but he’s not bad. He’s got a 2.97 ERA, that’s pretty good. He’ll be overlooked with all of the studs throwing tonight, easy play IMO.

Hitters

Devin Mesoraco – Okay, I know I essentially guaranteed that Mesoraco would homer yesterday and he didn’t. Tonight’s the night though. It’s definitely happening tonight.

Efren Navarro – Complete under the radar play. He’s got a great matchup in a great ballpark.

Kris Negron – Coors Field factor. Under the radar play, he could get you some serious points tonight.

Josh Donaldson – Donaldson is probably the top 3B on the board tonight. His matchup isn’t the greatest but I still think it’s good enough to consider playing him tonight.

Zach Walters – Another under the radar play against a decent matchup.

Christian Yelich – I’m a big fan of Yelich, he can get you points in numerous ways and he hits at the top of the lineup.

Alex Gordon – Gordon should handle Ricky Nolasco no problem.
