The Houston Astros finished the season with 107 wins. Good enough for the best record in the AL, and the best record in all of baseball. With that, they take on the winner of the Wild Card game, the Tampa Bay Rays.
The second of the winner-take-all games starts tonight as the Oakland Athletics host the Tampa Bay Rays to determine who will travel to Houston for the ALDS. In yesterday’s article, Joey Ricotta told you to have Yasmani Grandal as your Captain and he didn’t disappoint. Today we will see if we can call another one. Let’s get to it.
Aside from one afternoon game today, there is a full 14-game slate tonight. With so many choices for our lineups, the task of picking the right players can seem daunting. Have no fear. Baseball DFS is every day and sticking to what your research tells you will work out over the long haul. Last week my picks didn’t turn out exactly how I would’ve liked. We are back at it again though to hopefully win a little cash. Let’s get to it.
The end of the baseball season is getting closer. As temperatures begin to drop, the heat begins to rise on the teams that haven’t yet joined the 80-win club. After a few days away to take care of employment situations, I return to bring you two more teams that have joined our club. The Tampa Bay Rays and the Cleveland Indians have been battling all season to reach a postseason berth. Now that they’ve reached 80 wins, they both feel they’re almost there. And, they’re telling the rest of the 80s club, (indirectly) “Shut your halfwit pie-holes! We’re trying to make the playoffs!”
OK, that SpongeBob reference may not have been the 80s, but we’re breaking down a team that didn’t even exist in the 80s but have some pretty awesome “Throwback” uniforms. The Rays help the sunrise on this edition of, “Backtrax MLB!” Continue reading →
A typical Friday awaits us tonight as a full schedule of games is on tap. Paying up for pitching is very likely the strategy tonight as there is no shortage of good to great arms available to us. Let’s break down some picks and try to budget our salaries accordingly, we all know what we gotta do, it’s time to go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
Welcome back to yet another edition of Around the Horn. If you are a fan of high scoring, homer-happy baseball you are in your glory this season. The ball continues to fly out of the park at a record-breaking pace and nothing suggests that this won’t continue until the postseason. As for DFS, we don’t really care how the game plays out, as long as we pick the right players, if not, well, most of us are fans regardless. Enough of the pre-game talk, let’s burn around the bases, and go Around the Horn!
