I put my team together yesterday, and I’ll probably keep tinkering with it throughout the day and tomorrow, but I thought I’d share a couple of my picks.
On the pitching side of things, I decided to go big on one of my players – I’m blowing my budget on Felix Hernandez. King Felix is always good, and I like his matchup on Friday. Is he worth almost a fifth of my budget? Maybe not. But, like Mike Quade, I’m going with my gut.
My reliever is, perhaps, the douchiest closer in all of baseball – Brian Wilson. I hated picking him, but I feel like he’s got as good a chance as any at getting me a save on Friday. But he still has a terrible, terrible beard.
My one homer pick? Geovany Soto. Yes, I picked him mostly because I couldn’t stand to not have a Cub on my team. But I do think he’s heating up quite a bit right now and might hook me up with some power.
That’s all I’m going to share. I don’t want to give away my winning formula. If you haven’t signed up yet (to play a game, win some big cash, and support Bleacher Nation), DO IT!
