What do you guys like for the early slate? Scherzer is tempting but comes at a steep price. Thinking about going Cingrani/Lynn.

So, if a GPP says it pays the top 400 places and only 400 enter, everyone wins?

I thought 50/50's still only paid half the field if not full. ?

I like Lynn vs Mets and Kazmir vs Astros.

Edit: didn't see you specified "early".

46 pts from kluber is nice. Too bad my cardinals stack is getting owned by colon.

correct about the GPP's.

the 50/50s are guaranteed prize pools as well. for example if you look at the "full contest details" in a 100 player 50/50 it says it pays out the 1st place - 50th place entries, rather the top 50%.

Crawford or Ethier against Kendrick? Crawford batting 2nd, Ethier 6th. Ethier has pretty good numbers against Kendrick career.

I hope you went with Ethier. Crawford isn't playing well.

Went Scherzer and Kluber this morning and didn't even cash my 50/50s.
