Tonight we are looking at another nice 12-game slate for MLB DFS. There isn’t a wealth of aces tonight but there are solid options nonetheless. There are a ton of bats though and we will have to mix and match wisely to find those values so we can pay up for pitching. So let’s get right into it.
Week eight is here and some fresh power-rankings are out. This is the first installment of The Scorecrow’s top 10 power rankings. There have been some teams that have been consistent, some teams that have been disappointing, and some really surprising teams. So let’s break down the top 10.
Sorry for missing the early part of the week for the Stream Machine. It sucks when you have a busy weekend and you plan out a part of it to write, only for mother nature to decide to try to throw her own curveball at you and send you to another person’s basement for the majority of said time to write. Oh well, at least nothing was damaged from the storms. Let’s jump right into the matchups for this weekend.
Unlike the beginning of the season, I’ve begun to keep a spreadsheet of my pitching matchup’s performances as of Monday. The previous three top options performed, shall we say, strangely at best, with Mike Soroka pitching masterfully and Sandy Alcantara and Felix Pena not so much, although Pena did sneak away with a win. To be honest, the entire pitching landscape has been strange so far this season, with rumors swirling of the ball being juiced again. It’s hard to say how we should take these findings, but hopefully, in the stretch of the full season, these starts will look better than they currently seem. Now, on to the weekend matchups!
