My stone cold lock of the day is a hate, I'm on tilt pick. The Houston Astros, now facing their 'bad side' in a righty, will score 3 or less runs on the day. I figure if I can't win picking them maybe I can win picking against them. ;) Let's see if going on tilt can help the 5-15-4 record!

And here I am pumped for Heston, even against an improved Padres lineup, even not at Petco. Oh how beggars can't be choosers. :~(

How about Joc Pederson?? He was defintely worth the 2 year wait in my minor league system, 9 HR already! wow. He just needs to start stealing some bases and he is the complete player.

Nice to see Carrasco grt back on track with a productive start, though Heston undid all that good... Mumble grumble.

6-15-4 now and 2-1-0 in May. Going on tilt worked. :-]

Actually traded Albert Pujols post-draft this year for him on my team in a 14-team h2h league that keeps 6 players each year. Felt like a big risk at the time but Pujols looks like...Pujols...right now and Pederson is on a tear.

That said, Joc's k-rate will make it a bit tough to maintain a good batting average. 33% k-rate is a tough level to keep up and have a productive average. So far the BABIP isn't crazy high...in the .340's...but 41% of his hits are leaving the park! That's on the insane side and it's the walk rate that's making it possible to hit .272 in over 100 PA's with only 22 hits. Not sure if he can keep this mix up - feels like a high-wire act every day - but I'm definitely rooting for him. :)
