Matt Carpenter 1B St. Louis Cardinals ($40,924) – A number of high priced first baseman with favorable pitching match-ups are on the docket tonight, but if you’re looking to go on the cheap yet still look for value, then this southpaw is for you! “The Carp” part deux has gotten plenty of at-bats of late due to Lance Berkman once again pulling up lame, and though his second go round hasn’t been as impressive as the first, he finds himself in a favorable spot this evening. The last time Carpenter stared back at the flame-throwing Samardzija (10 days ago), he went 2-for-3 with a triple and two RBI for a lucrative daily fantasy baseball return. Look for him to be one of many that gets to the Cubs starter this evening!
Darwin Barney 2B Chicago Cubs ($72,220) – The Cubs second baseman hardly gets the accolades that the Kinsler’s and Cano’s get in the fantasy realm, but would you ever guess that he is the owner of the highest batting average (.298) amongst SS ranked in the Top 10 at Fantasy Feud? He’s averaged 3.2 daily fantasy baseball PPG, and he’s battled Adam Wainwright tough throughout his career going 4-for-7 with a double and an RBI. Batting second right before both Starlin Castro -.571 career batting average vs. Wainwright – and Bryan LaHair – hit a grand slam in first ever at-bat against him back on the 13th – could have Barney posting yet another memorable daily fantasy output.
Buster Posey C San Francisco Giants ($61,387) – Personally, we’re a bit shocked to see 10 catcher salaries costing more than the red hot Posey who only caught the day game of their twin bill with the Mets on Monday; he went yard and walked once in four plate appearances. The pair of hits marked the sixth straight game in which the former World Series MVP hit safely in, and now he gets to run up against a hurler in Latos that’s gotten out to a miserable start to his 2012 campaign – 21 hits allowed with an 11/8 K/BB ratio through only 15 IP is hardly what Cincy thought it was bringing over from San Diego. Regardless, Posey has collected three hits (1 HR) in eight at-bats vs. Latos in his career, and his salary is only going to keep rising. Hop on this value horses right now!
**Value Hurler of the Night**
Adam Wainwright SP St. Louis Cardinals ($20,000) – Yes, Wainwright has gotten out to a terrible start. And yes, the Cubs pounded him for eight ERs and two HRs in just three innings of that Friday the 13th debacle. However, Chicago got its one win in this series in the opener, and it came in dramatic fashion. Wainwright’s been nasty throughout his career at night (2.92 ERA & .239 BAA), and he’s simply loved pitching at Wrigley Field going 5-0 with a 3.98 ERA. The price for him in this spot is simply an insult. Those that continue to expect past performances to be a predictor of the future need not apply. A daily fantasy MLB value spot like this might not present itself the remainder of the season!
