So in my main H2H Points League, I'm 6th in the league in Pts Scored, yet 0 - 4, and in 11th Place. Just a brutal stretch of bad luck with respect to my opponents having big weeks.

5th in Runs Scored
4th in Home Runs
3rd in RBI
5th in SB

10th in Innings Pitched (my pitching has been absolutely brutal thanks to Walker, Pomeranz, Iwakuma, Holland, et al...)
6th in Strikeouts
9th in Quality Starts
9th in Wins
8th in Saves

Nearly impossible to trade for pitching in this league, so today I take a shot on Tyler Lyons, after thankfully sitting Travis Wood yesterday. :-o

I picked up Wood to spot start him and was still happy about it when he came out, despite all the runs, because he was in line for the win and that's really all I needed. Way to go Cubs pen! !+)

My stone cold lock...

One does not simply walk into Houston and throw two lefties in a row and get away with it. Texas got away with one lefty last night but no way it happens again. Led by Jose Altuve and his 1.287 OPS against lefties this year and .357 lifetime average against lefties these right-handed hackers will actually connect with the ball tonight and chase Wandy pretty quickly. Not putting any numbers on this one as Wandy could be gone quickly but he's going to get shelled. How can you question my 5-14-4 record? :)

I don't think Lyons will fare well, the Cubs offense is brutal.

Yep, 1.287 OPS against lefties. Team clubs them. So I take all the righties at the top part of the order...0-14 combined. !+) If every one of them just manages to walk or single once I cash in FanDuel but nope...they sucked. :)

5-15-4 now and 1-1-0 in May, but this one hurt.
