OWNERSBOX HAS LAUNCHED THE FIRST EVERY WEEKLY SALARY CAP GAME! In honour of the launch of our new game format I have to get out my MLB salary cap lineup for this week. It is going to be the MONEY MAKER lineup on our platform so you may want to submit this one as well.
My strategy is to focus on my two pitchers first, usually at a below average price and then build out the remaining part of lineup with the 8 hitters. Here’s where I’m at this week:
Olson and Alvarez were two guys I knew I wanted before I even looked through the prices. Olson is not only RAKING this season but he has 3 games against the Rangers this week. Alvarez is also a no brainer with series against the Orioles and Tigers. Dylan Carlson is also a great value this week with matchups against the GAUNTLET that is Detroit, Pittsburgh and Arizona.
But the most important player on my squad here is Teoscar Hernandez. The man is just coming back from paternity leave after the birth of his child. How can I not put him on my team? He’s been great this season on his own but now he has dad power. I’M ALL IN.
With McNeil just returning from the IL and the inconsistency of Alec Bohm I’m going to have to keep an eye on how they do this week and may need to make a swap or two if they aren’t playing well or end up being given some days off.
Finally, my pitchers have three quality starts to meet my pitcher game opportunities. Greinke with two against the Orioles and Cease is a sneaky good start against Seattle.
