Ever since Andrew Benintendi made his MLB debut in 2016, the Ohio native has been viewed as a key part of the Red Sox future. After a productive Junior season, he entered 2019 with hopes of becoming the next Red Sox star. Like many of his teammates, however, the season turned out to be full of failure. As the Red Sox look to return to contention, the play of Benintendi will be key as they try to build their next championship team. Continue reading →
The baseball season is a grind. It’s every single day. We will approach DFS the same way and be winners at the end of the season even if we have our hot streaks and slumps. Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.
Thursday’s MLB schedule opens up with three-afternoon games followed by six evening contests. The afternoon tilts feature premium pitching options in Jacob deGrom and Max Scherzer at home while the evening games offer up the potential of lots of scoring with Texas/ Oakland, 9.5 implied total, Cleveland/ Kansas City, 10.5, and New York/ Boston, 11.

Recap: 108-54 (1st in AL East, World Series Champions)
What can I say about this Red Sox team? They won the World Series. The level at which they played was insane. As a Yankees fan, I’m well aware that no lead was safe when it came to the Red Sox last year, they could always pull something out of their hat. When it comes to wins for this season, the Red Sox and Yankees have the highest projected win totals at 95.5. You just know it’s going to be a battle all season long.
The Outfield position has always been deep and 2019 is no different. With five players being drafted in the 1st round, there is elite upside available with the first 15 outfielders off the board. This is one of the only positions that will not penalize you by reaching for an early pick because you have 2-5 more chances to get your starting lineup straight. No matter how you spin it, it’s deep. Continue reading →
