DraftKings Around the Horn September 4th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |September 4th, 2019

The calendar has flipped over to September, the kids are back to school and summer days are about to turn into crisp, cooler days. Heck, I kinda like it as I was just out for some tennis and felt like the coolness gave me some extra energy. This, of course, has nothing to do with what brings you, the reader, here. Let’s dig into this somewhat un-inspiring eight-game nightcap before I start talking about the weather again. Twins at Red Sox, 11 runs implied total/ Tigers at Royals, 9.5/  Rockies at Dodgers, 9.5 are our games to target for bats. By now you know the drill, tell grandma, we’re going Around the Horn!

Saturday in the Ballpark: MLB DFS Picks for August 24, 2019

Joey Ricotta | Aug 24th, 2019 

“Saturday in the park, I think it was the Fourth of July.” You’ve heard the popular song, sung by the group Chicago. If you haven’t, then skip this entire introduction and watch the video below. Now that we’re on the same page, I figured today would be a perfect time to lighten the mood. Last night was god awful for me. I was a Max Kepler home run that went just foul past the right field foul pole, away from cashing in all across the board. Instead, I wound up losing a decent chunk of money. Oh well. It happens. That’s the baseball DFS grind. And believe me, it is a grind. But there is no time to dwell on the past. Tonight looks like a fun slate to wipe the slate clean and get back to our winning ways. I remixed the song just for this slate. – “Saturday in the ballpark, it feels like the Fourth of July.” I’m expecting all of our home runs to be fair and fireworks to follow. Without further ado, let’s get to the picks that will get the party started. Don’t forget to enjoy the real song as well. 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.

MLB DFS: Arms, Bats, and Stacks for August 13, 2019

Joey Ricotta  Aug 13th, 2019

Weather is definitely a concern tonight. Be sure to recheck every game before locking your lineups. It’s weird to say, especially because Chris Sale is on the slate tonight, and we are always worried about his massive strikeout upside, but I think we can save a few bucks at pitcher tonight.

Trade Deadline Spotlight: Whit Merrifield

Daniel Corrigan | July 30th, 2019

One of the more versatile players in baseball, Whit Merrifield is one of the most sought after trade deadline targets this season.

Merrifield has been one of the lone bright spots for the Kansas City Royals. He has been sitting at an above-average WAR his whole career and is improving his defense. He has that .300 BA and 20 HR capabilities at the dish as well. He is also a great base runner. He stole 43 bases last season and 34 the year before that.
