“Prior to 2013, I had never played any daily fantasy sports but I was always interested in trying it out.  Since I’m confident in my knowledge of baseball I figured I would give it a go once the 2013 MLB season began.  I was doing okay in the beginning but nothing too impressive.  I was just barely breaking even.  I realized that I was going to have to up my game if I wanted to make any money.  So I started researching.  I searched for quite a while and came across a lot of helpful websites that offered things like daily lineups and daily player projections.  Although these services were promising none of them really worked out very well.  Then I came across Muntradamus’ website, BeastDome.com.  I looked over the website and came across VIP Package #2.  It was exactly what I was looking for.  I had a few questions so I contacted Muntradamus to speak to him personally about the package.  His response was prompt and quite informative.  We corresponded via e-mail over the next few hours and his self-confidence and track record was very reassuring.  I decided to give the VIP Package #2 a shot and I saw instant results.  His lineups were better than every other service I had tried and I made my money back and then some in no time.  I started with a $100 bankroll and built it up to over $500 in the first week.  Not only that, but he was reliable and easy to contact unlike some of the other services I had previously tried.  I must say that if you’re looking for advice on lineups for daily fantasy sports, Muntradamus is your man.  He definitely will not let you down.”

 

TOP 5 MUNTRADAMUS PICKS OF THE 1st HALF OVERALL

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

ORIGINAL PRESEASON RANKINGS

LIST OF EXPERTS I COMPETE AGAINST

 

#1. CHRIS DAVIS – 1B – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #68

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #139

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .332 Average/31 HR/80 RBI/60 Runs

No Expert has Chris Davis Ranked anywhere near me.  Last season Chris Davis was the Fantasy Baseball MVP of the Playoffs and simply has not stopped.  I have been a fan of Chris Davis back in his days at Texas thinking that 30 HR potential would come at some point.

Now at 31 before the All-Star Break, we have a somewhat realistic chance of seeing a player hit over 60 HRs.

#2. CARLOS GOMEZ – OF – MIL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #54

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #117

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .315 Average/12 HR/37 RBI/16 SB/45 Runs

Every Brewer Highlight you see this season showcases Carlos Gomez getting a Triple or delivering a huge hit.  After a very slow start to the season, CarGo #2 is hitting over .315 and is on pace for a 30/30 season easily.  Just like I predicted.

#3. DAVID ORTIZ – 1B – BOS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #70

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #114

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .317 Average/16 HR/57 RBI/2 SB/40 Runs

All Fantasy Baseball Owners out there got sloppy and forgot to Draft Big Papi.  Papi is arguably the #2 1B option in the game today and can easily finish out the season with 40 HRs and 120 RBIs, despite starting the season on the DL.

#4 JACOBY ELLSBURY- OF – BOS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #13

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #40

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .296 Average/1 HR/29 RBI/32 SB/51 Runs

I was the only expert to say Jacoby Ellsbury would not lose a step in 2013.  Jacoby leads the Majors in SB’s, and is arguably the best lead-off hitter in the game today.  Boston usually gets hot and scores a lot of runs during the 2nd Half of the MLB season.  Do not be surprised to see Jacoby lead the MLB in Runs, as well as steal 60 Bases.

 

#5. ROY HALLADAY – SP – PHI

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #181

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #99

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (2-4)/8.65 ERA/35 K/1.46 WHIP

Injured, horrible 1st half of the season, likely will not come back in 2013.  All of this sums up Roy Halladay and his BUST season.  Had to see the warning signs after his horrible Spring where he failed to pitch the ball over 85 MPH.

*ALL PLAYERS MENTIONED BY POSITION WERE RANKED HIGHER THAN EVERY EXPERT*

CATCHER RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

WILIN ROSARIO – C – COL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #2

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #7

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .275 Average/13 HR/41 RBI/3 SB/33 Runs

No Expert was higher on Wilin Rosario in 2012 than myself.  So in 2013 I decided to back it up saying Wilin would not skip a beat in the most friendly ballpark in the history of this game.  Rosario is crushing the ball and should easily wind up with over 35 HRs.

J.P. ARENCIBIA – C – TOR

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #8
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #18

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .218 Average/18 HR/36 RBI/31 Runs

Everyone like to hate on J.P.’s batting average.  Try hating on his 15 HRs that leads the Majors at the position.  Yes his .221 Batting Average is low, but for J.P. that is not bad at all, and the fact he has so much confidence heading into the 2nd Half of the season we can easily see 30 HRs and a .245 Batting Average.

A.J. PIERZYNSKI – C – TEX

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #7
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #17

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .286 Average/7 HR/26 RBI/25 Runs

A.J. is 3rd of all catchers in Batting Average at .287.  The power has not been there at 7 HRs, but we all know that Ball Park in Texas heats up in the 2nd Half of the Season.  Look for A.J. to get to those 20 HRs which easily gives him another great season after he came out of nowhere in 2012.

JARROD SALTALAMACCHIA – C – BOS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #12
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #19

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .262 Average/8 HR/31 RBI/32 Runs

The 8 HRs is less than what you would expect from Salty.  But that .262 Batting Average is exactly where you want a Streaky Power Hitter like himself heading into the 2nd Half with a Hot Boston team on the horizon.  Salty has extreme Pop at the Catcher position and should be in line for a big 2nd Half of the season.

ALEX AVILA – C – DET

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #25
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #16

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .172 Average/5 HR/13 RBI/16 Runs

5 HR/13 RBIs and a .172 Batting Average.  Other Fantasy Sites were telling you to Draft him, I told you to stay away.

1B RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

 

CHRIS DAVIS – 1B – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #11
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #22

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .332 Average/31 HR/80 RBI/60 Runs

No Expert Ranked Crush Davis higher.  Coverman of the 2013 BEAST DOME Fantasy Baseball Team for a Reason.

DAVID ORTIZ – 1B/DH – BOS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #12
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #21

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .317 Average/16 HR/57 RBI/2 SB/40 Runs

If you follow BEAST DOME, you end up with BEASTS on your Fantasy Teams.  David Ortiz is the definition of a BEAST, and I made sure you drafted him early despite starting the season on the DL.

MICHAEL CUDDYER – 1B/OF – COL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #15
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #27

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .344 Average/14 HR/48 RBI/6 SB/38 Runs

The Hottest Hitter in Baseball next to Chris Davis, and another player I ranked higher than any Expert.  Cuddyer is a special talent playing in the best hitters ballpark, his days of stealing bases are gone, but his days of smashing 25+ HRs are now growing to 30+.

ADAM LIND – 1B – TOR

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #35
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #44

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .327 Average/11 HR/33 RBI/1 SB/34 Runs

Arguably the best Left-Handed Hitter against Right-Handed Pitching, I had to give Lind some love.  While I did not rank him high enough, I always knew he would bounce back if you read my preseason comments.

Lind will return to his POWER potential we all know he is capable of. The Blue Jays are going to give him a long leash to prove he is the 30+ HR guy the Jays expect him to be. Draft Adam late with the upside of getting one of the best sleepers at this position, he will have ducks on the pond all day with this lineup.

PAUL KONERKO – 1B – CWS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #32

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #16

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .253 Average/7 HR/33 RBI/25 Runs

I saw the fade of Paul Konerko from a mile away.  While he shows some life here and there, the days of PAULY SMASH are long gone.  The only way the White Sox have a shot of the Playoffs is he comes alive, chances are he stays in the grave.

2B RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

CHASE UTLEY – 2B – PHI

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #4

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #10

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .284 Average/11 HR/ 30 RBI/6 SB/ 33 Runs

Despite missing 20+ Games, Utley is still #4 of all 2B options in HRs.  He also has come back with a lot of power against the Dodgers and is showing that he will be his PRIME-self for a big 2nd Half.  The batting average above .280 is pretty, and that Phillies team should be ready to make a big run in the 2nd Half as their offense is HOT and that ball park is Tiny.

KELLY JOHNSON – 2B/OF – TB

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #16

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #27

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .235 Average/11 HR/39 RBI/6 SB/ 28 Runs

I have always been a Kelly Johnson fan and those 11 HRs are no fluke.  Johnson does kill you in batting average, but that HR total could easily double.

KYLE SEAGER -2B/3B – SEA

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #11

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #17

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .268 Average/11 HR/36 RBI/3 SB/39 Runs

Seager has had his moments this season.  A Grandslam in Extra INNINGS against the White Sox only to Lose.  Kyle has been more Hot than Cold which makes him a good pick at this position.

DANNY ESPINOSA – 2B/SS – WAS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #23

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #14

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .158 Average/3 HR/11 RBI/1 SB/11 Runs

Was never a fan of Espinosa playing with a Torn Rotator Cuff.  The numbers speak for themselves.

BRIAN ROBERTS – 2B – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #15

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #30

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .429 Average/2 RBI/1 SB/1 Run (4 Games)

You are asking.  Why?

The Answer.  You will want to pick him up for the 2nd Half and see.  Brian Roberts is a special Fantasy Player with that freakishly Hot Orioles offense.

3B RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

MARK TRUMBO – 3B – LAA

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #5

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #15

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .251 Average/18 HR/51 RBI/2 SB/48 Runs

Only Miguel Cabrera and Pedro Alvarez have more HRs than Trumbo at his position.  Mark Trumb is at 18 HRs in the first-half and can easily smash his way to 40+.  For those who are going to ride the Trumbo train, no reason to turn back now as it is full-steam ahead for this heating up Angels team.

CHASE HEADLEY – 3B – SDP

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #18

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #9

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .221 Average/6 HR/21 RBI/5 SB/28 Runs

6 HR/5 SB hitting .224.  I did not like that thumb injury that had him on the DL to start the season, and told all owners to avoid.  Hopefully you listened as Headley has been nothing short of one of the worst bust’s in 2013 so far.

PABLO SANDOVAL – 3B – SFG

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #19

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #8

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .274 Average/8 HR/37 RBI/26 Runs

Pablo came into Spring Training Fatter than ever.  There is no other word than FAT to describe Kung Fu Panda who looks like he made a deal with the Panda Express Panda to eat all of his food in the off-season.  Hard to see this guy coming close to the 25 HR form we all once knew he had.

BRETT LAWRIE – 3B – TOR

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #13

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #7

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .209 Average/5 HR/14 RBI/2 SB/11 Runs

It’s always hard to not get excited about the Brett Lawrie hype, but I wanted to witness it for a full-season before giving him that Top 10 Ranking.  So far in 2013 he has been injured and only has 5 HR/2 SB to go with a batting average that makes Adam Dunn look respectable.  Lawrie will get it together one season.  One season.

PEDRO ALVAREZ – 3B – PIT

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #10

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #16

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .241 Average/20 HR/53 RBI/1 SB

Pedro is and always has been one of my Favorite players at the 3B position.  To finally see him put it all together is not surprising at all. He has shot up to a Top 5 3B option in all of Fantasy and should easily continue this torrid HR pace in the 2nd Half of 2013.

SS RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

ELVIS ANDRUS – SS – TEX

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #18

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #7

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .243 Average/0 HR/28 RBI/17 SB/42 Runs

No Expert Ranked Andrus lower.  At 0 HRs, nobody can be that surprised.  Hitting less than .250, ya that’s pretty bad.  The 17 SBs..Sure those are nice.  But not for the expense of losing in every category.  Andrus is not that good of a player and can easily be replaced by Profar.  Elvis is all Speed and no Power, but not that much speed.

J.J. HARDY – SS – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #10

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #16

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .266 Average/15 HR/46 RBI/1 SB/32 Runs

No Expert Ranked Hardy Higher, and J.J. is easily having one of those Monsetrous Seasons that come HARDly as a surprise after his solid 2012.  With only Tulowitzki having more SS’s, J.J. has easily been one of the best selections at his position.

JOHNNY PERALTA – SS – DET

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #14

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #24

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .314 Average/7 HR/36 RBI/2 SB/35 Runs

Peralta has been rock solid with that batting average well over .310.  We all know that power will come shortly, and when it does.  He could be right up there as a Top 5 SS option.

JED LOWRIE – SS – OAK

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #17

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #22

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .309 Average/5 HR/34 RBI/1 SB/37 Runs

Jed was undervauled simply because he could never stay healthy.  While other Experts worried, I took a shot he would stay healthy and ranked him higher than all the others.  He has panned out so far and should easily be able to double those 1st Half numbers as the A’s are playing with a purpose this 2013 season.

DANNY ESPINOSA – SS – WAS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #21

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK#13

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .158 Average/3 HR/11 RBI/1 SB/11 Runs

Pre-Season Torn Rotator cuff, should have avoided more than I did.

OF RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

JACOBY ELLSBURY – OF – BOS

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #6
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #16

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .296 Average/1 HR/29 RBI/32 SB/51 Runs

The King of SBs.  Best Lead-Off Hitter in the Game.  Jacoby is ready to explode for a Huge 2nd Half after struggling in spurts through the start of the 1st.

CARLOS GOMEZ – OF – MIL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #20
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #35

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .315 Average/12 HR/37 RBI/16 SB/45 Runs

CarGo #2 will continue his dominance as he is on track to walk backwards with a 30/30 season.  Not many players can say they will accomplish that feat.  Outside of Mike Trout and Carlos Gonzalez, Gomez is the only one who has a good shot.

NELSON CRUZ – OF – TEX

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #21
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #34

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .271 Average/20 HR/61 RBI/5 SB/32 Runs

Every year Experts back-off of Cruz and his injury bug (knock on wood) but it is hard to find a better hitter in Baseball when healthy.  To give you some perspective on how good Cruz’s season is so far in 2013, Jose Bautista owners are a little jealous.

CHRIS DAVIS – 1B/OF – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #20
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #43

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .332 Average/31 HR/80 RBI/60 Runs

Hard to not get excited about Chris Davis being Ranked this much higher than all the other experts.  This goes to show how much faith I had on the one they now call, “CRUSH DAVIS.”

MICHAEL CUDDYER – 1B/OF – COL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #31
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #51

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .344 Average/14 HR/48 RBI/6 SB/38 Runs

My love for Cuddyer goes more than skin deep as I have had faith in him when you gave me all the Top OF options.  Cuddyer is a special player who is reaching a special level now finally healthy on a Bomb’s away ballpark.

BRETT GARDNER – OF – NYY

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #34
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #46

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .286 Average/7 HR/31 RBI/11 SB/45 Runs

Gardner was ranked higher because I thought he was going to steal more bases.  The Fact that he is playing like a Top 30 OF option despite his 11 SBs could mean scary things for the 2nd half of the season.  Look for him to run way more and could easily lead the MLB in SBs for the 2nd Half.

MICHAEL BOURN – OF – CLE

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #39
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #22

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .299 Average/2 HR/15 RBI/11 SB/33 Runs

Bourn in my mind has always been overrated because of his inability to do anything else besides Stealing Bases.  Similar to why I did not like Elvis Andrus.  Bourn has been beat up this year, but those 11 SBs are too low.  For him to reach value he has to steal 50 at least, do I think he does it?   No.

COCO CRISP – OF – OAK

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #41
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #53

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .274 Average/9 HR/28 RBI/13 SB/46 Runs

Last season I had Coco Crisp Ranked higher than all the other experts.  Than he got injured.

This season I gave Coco a little boost, and when healthy he proves that only Jacoby Ellsbury is a better lead-off hitter in the game today.  Coco is everything to that Oakland ball club and can easily be the answer to this teams prayers for a playoff run.

COLBY RASMUS – OF – TOR

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #47
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #70

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .242 Average/14 HR/38 RBI/33 Runs

Colby has always had natural talent.  This season he is finally putting it together like we all hoped he one day would.  With 14 HRs this early in the season, I would find it hard to believe he does not reach 30.  He is one of the most feared batters when hot, and Colby has been on the verge of Blazing hot multiple times through the 1st Half.

NATE MCCLOUTH – OF – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #77
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #113

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: .282 Average/6 HR/15 RBI/24 SB/49 Runs

McLouth has an alarming 24 SBs.  While the Power numbers are down with those 6 HRs, do not be surprised to see him reach 15.  Put it all together for a 2nd Half of the season where the Orioles will be making a serious World Series run, we could see Nate easily reach a 15 HR/35 SB season.  Those numbers are ridiculous and ranking him higher than the field should help my case as Top Expert.

 

PITCHER RANKINGS 1st HALF

ALL PICKS BELOW WERE HIGHER THAN THE OTHER 80 EXPERTS

JUSTIN MASTERSON – SP – CLE

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #64

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #102

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (9-6)/3.76 ERA/117 K/1.21 WHIP

Masterson is 7th Place in Ks ahead of studs like Justin Verlander/Madison Bumgarner and nearly any name you can think of besides 6 others.  Justin has been pitching great and consistent pretty much all season long, but those 117Ks is something special.  Especially for how late you were able to steal him in your draft.  *No Expert Ranked Masterson higher.

CHRIS TILLMAN – SP – BAL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #55

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #94

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (10-2)/3.68 ERA/81 K/1.30 WHIP

Only 7 Starters have double digit wins.  Chris Tillman is one of those pitchers as he was a Favorite of the BEAST DOME NATION to closet out the 2012 Season.  Tillman was throwing Complete Game Shutouts nearly all of September and helped lead teams to their titles.  Despite the knack of giving up HRs, Tillman’s ERA is very respectable.

ROY HALLADAY – SP – PHI

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #45

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #26

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (2-4)/8.65 ERA/35 K/1.46 WHIP

Hit the showers Halladay, nobody wants to see those horrible numbers which reminds you of a bad Carlos Marmol month.  Halladay lost his Fastball, and he lost the respect of his fantasy owners.

ZACK GREINKE – SP – LAD

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #52

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #17

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (5-2)/3.94 ERA/48 K/1.67 WHIP

My Ranking might be harsh for Greinke, but that WHIP is going to kill you in ROTO leagues.  His K Totals are nothing what they used to be.  His ERA is on the Brink of being horrible to common eye.  Luckily the Dodgers have a lot going for them, which could help Greinke rebound.  In my mind he is and always will be overrated.  Those KC days are long gone.

J.J. PUTZ – RP – ARI

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #19
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK  #11

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: 5 Saves/4 Blown Saves/4.15 ERA/17 K/1.62 WHIP

The D-Backs are showing some desperate signs giving Putz his job back.  The D-Backs were pretty much a guarnteed blown Save when Putz took the mound in a 1 run game to start the year.  We will see how he finishes off the 2013 season, but the D-Backs should just go with Daniel Hernandez by now.

JULIO TEHERAN – SP – ATL

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #68
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #78

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (6-4)/3.12 ERA/81 K/1.19 WHIP

Teheran is really turning it up heading into the All-Star Break and now comes the question.  Will he hit the rookie wall?  Usually pitchers who are not used to wear and tear of a full-season start to fade, I think Teheran continues to get stronger as he has not pitched better all season.

HYUN-JIN RYU – SP – LAD

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #70

EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #81

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (6-3)/2.83 ERA/87 K/1.24 WHIP

Ryu has been producing Hodduken’s at a constant rate this 2013 season.  He has been near unhittable at Home and should give the Dodgers everything they need to make a big playoff push.

MIKE LEAKE – SP – CIN

MUNTRADAMUS RANK #103
EXPERT CONSENSUS RANK #150

STATS AS OF JULY 1st: (7-3)/2.52 ERA/67 K/1.13 WHIP

No expert Ranked Leake higher, and even though he is outside of the Top 100.  I will still take it.  Leake is a good starting pitcher who always showed the potential of getting bombed.  Aroldis Chapman was supposed to take his spot in the starting rotation, before decided the bullpen is where he wants to be.  Leake is holding onto the job and then some in 2013.

  1. Looks like all my draft day steals: Ortiz, Ellsbury,Davis, Gomez, Cruz, Trumbo….. No wonder i just moved into first. Great draft day rankings!!

    Good luck with your tournaments!!

  2. Gotta love it…. a cut and paste from an email from the BEAST master. Ended up winning the week as prescribed…(and slowly pulling ahead on top.)

    Muntz…figured I would thank you publicly for your stream advice.

    “Griffin should get the win and right now I think the win is more important than the Ks. With you having 3 starters, you need 2 wins to pick up the week easy.

    I say go Griffin and hope the A’s and that high scoring road offense gets to Mendoza. Which should happen.”
