Any season that ends without hoisting the Commissioner’s Trophy for the New York Yankees is considered a disappoint. So when the Yankees lost to the Astros in six games in the American League Championship Series, there was obviously a lot of disappointment. But that doesn’t mean it was a complete and utter failure of a 2019 season. Let’s delve further into the Yankees’ 2019 season and what to look forward to for 2020.
Game Four of the ALCS was supposed to be last night. Unfortunately, Mother Nature had other plans. What the change in schedule does for us though is it gives us a rematch of the Game One starters. It will be cool at Yankee Stadium tonight, and the wind will be blowing out toward the short right-field porch at about 16 mph. There should be a few souvenirs for the fans in those seats tonight.
Two teams that won over 100 games this season will begin their battle in the Bronx tonight at 7:07 ET. This series should be full of scoring as the Yankees and Twins were #1 and #2 in HRs (Twins 307-Yankees 306) and runs (Yankees 943-Twins 939). The pitching will have to be on point for both sides as mistakes in the field and on the basepaths will give the other side extra outs. Neither team can afford that with the firepower these squads have. Let’s break down the matchup.
A full helping of games awaits us for Friday night. Make sure to pay close attention to lineup construction and news on potential capping of starting pitchers innings from here until Sunday. Many managers will rest players to close out the season if there is nothing left to gain. Bats to focus on will be the Bronx Bombers at Globe Life Stadium in Texas and the Brew Crew and the Rockies at Coors. Let’s party one more time kids (for the Regular Season anyway), let’s go Around the Horn!!
Tonight will be a good night to practice what it will be like once playoff baseball begins in October. Way fewer games to pick from for our starting lineups. All toll just five are on the docket for the evening slate. Pretty straight forward, we have an ace going for Cleveland against the woeful Detroit Tigers. As for bats, three powerhouse offenses should be targeted as they are all in good spots against a left-handed starter. Let’s get right to it and go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
Our focus will be on the night slate. We’ve whittled it down to a handful of games that project for high run totals to help build your offense. The highest totals as of this morning are as follow: Angels at Rangers(11), Phillies at Red Sox (12), Royals at Orioles (10.5), Yankees at Athletics (9.5) and finally the Astros at home to the Tigers. Let’s get right to it and Go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
A nice and easy slate of games on hand for tonight. What makes DFS easy? Nothing. But we feel like it’s easier when there aren’t as many games being played. It helps us narrow down our research and eliminate overlooking good match-ups. With that said, you still never know what is going to happen. That is the beauty of sports. That is the beauty of baseball. Anything can and most likely will happen. But that shouldn’t stop us from trying to predict how the games will go. Here are some guys in good spots that I’ll be using as Core Plays tonight. Continue reading →
