Joey Ricotta \ Aug 15th, 2019 

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

DraftKings Around the Horn July 19th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |July 19th, 2019

Yesterday was a bit rocky if you tailed me with Charlie Morton as SP1 as he was nowhere near what we wanted for a good return. The Yankees are as close to matchup-proof as they come as they got to Morton in a 5-1 victory. Tonight we will look to some of those bats in a tasty matchup at home to the Rockies and left-handed starter Kyle Freeland. More on that later, let’s get into this mega 14 gamer, let’s go Around the Horn! Continue reading

Cincinnati Reds: A Great American Struggle

Chad Davis | May 5th, 2019

The Reds are a very temperamental team from year to year when we look at the league as a whole. Some years, the Reds at this point in the season are playing astonishingly well, and at other times, the Reds perform somewhere close to the bottom of the NL. The Reds attempted to right the ship this offseason however. The Reds gained significant amounts of ground by acquiring two outfielders, Yasiel Puig and Matt Kemp, and two new starting pitchers, Alex Wood and Sonny Gray. Yet, these additions have failed to make a substantial impact. Matt Kemp has already been waived by the club and Wood has yet to throw a pitch. Sonny Gray has been the only valuable addition as Puig struggles through a slump that is detailed by fellow writer, Kody Clawson, here.
