ALDS Preview: New York Yankees vs Minnesota Twins

John Lepore | October 4th, 2019

Two teams that won over 100 games this season will begin their battle in the Bronx tonight at 7:07 ET. This series should be full of scoring as the Yankees and Twins were #1 and #2 in HRs (Twins 307-Yankees 306) and runs (Yankees 943-Twins 939). The pitching will have to be on point for both sides as mistakes in the field and on the basepaths will give the other side extra outs. Neither team can afford that with the firepower these squads have. Let’s break down the matchup.

DraftKings Around the Horn October 4th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |October 4th, 2019

Postseason baseball is in full swing and we’ve already had some very exciting contests. Let’s make it even more exciting with some daily fantasy. For the most part, hitters will be matched up against premium pitching so finding offense isn’t as straight forward as on regular-season slates where you can target against weak pitching staffs’. Let’s get to it and go Around the Horn! Continue reading

MLB DFS: Arms, Bats, and Stacks for September 17th, 2019

Joey Ricotta | September 17th, 2019

With the MLB season winding down, we won’t have many more opportunities to take advantage and make some money playing DFS. We need to capitalize on the remaining opportunities. That brings us to tonight’s slate of 14 games, starting a little later than normal at 7:05 ET. On the docket, we have a game at Coors Field which we always have to prioritize one way or the other, as well as some pitchers in good spots. To save you time and research, I went ahead and put some work in for you. The daily grind keeps rolling and we aren’t slowing down for anything or anyone. It’s time to get right back to it. Here are some of my favorite DFS plays for tonight’s games. Continue reading

Into the 80s with Tom Greene- Minnesota Twins

Tom Greene | August 29th, 2019

Two days after the Atlanta Braves joined the 80-win club, the Minnesota Twins join the party. In Atlanta, there seems to be some doubt as far as the pitching goes. In Minnesota, fans and broadcasters (like Jenny Taft, Jamie Hersch, Marney Gellner, Dawn Mitchell, Jamie Erdahl, and Kevin Gorg,) are simply excited that this season has exceeded expectations. Of course, this is said on one condition. Our @jball0202 expects championships in Minnesota, and nothing else (maybe championship-style writing from me? I do my best.) Continue reading

DraftKings Around the Horn August 28th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |August 28th, 2019

We will get to pitching momentarily. First up is a glance at the highest implied run totals for today’s 11-game evening slate. A massive run line of 14 runs easily leads the way as the Boston Red Sox, who all of a sudden are running along very nicely (8-3 in their last 11), visit Coors Field and the Colorado Rockies. Twins-White Sox are at 10.5, Rangers and Angels as well as Pirates-Phillies are both set at 10 and the Indians-Tigers chime in at 9.5. Let’s break down some picks, hop on board, we’re going Around the Horn!

DraftKings Around the Horn August 8th, 2019

Joel Dorcas |August 8th, 2019

The Cleveland Indians and Minnesota Twins headline the MLB schedule tonight. As for the DFS landscape, we have a pitcher that can provide salary relief for some bats that are running on all cylinders of late. No time than the present to saddle up and go for a rip. Scorecards, crackerjack, sunflower seeds, we’re Going Around the Horn! Continue reading

MLB DFS: Tough Tuesday Picks for July 16, 2019

Joey Ricotta | July 16th, 2019

When I first looked at the pitchers lined up for tonight’s full boat of games, I may or may not have vomited in my mouth a little bit. With this many games, you wouldn’t expect it to be such a struggle to find good pitching, from a fantasy perspective at least. The pitching we would normally pay for at certain ranges is priced ridiculously high because of the lack of pitching overall. Nothing against Lance Lynn, because he’s been terrific so far this season, but when he’s the highest-priced pitcher on Draftkings, you know it’s going to be an uphill battle and similar to pulling teeth to put together some solid lineups. The best advice I can give, don’t watch any of these guys actually pitch. Not because they are terrible pitchers, but because you will drive yourself crazy. Watch the games you have hitters from unless there is some correlation between the two and then I don’t know what to tell you. I’m sorry but suffer away. Now, let’s get into the toothaches and picks for tonight’s games. Excuse me. Locks and Stacks. Continue reading

MLB DFS: Locks, Stacks, and Barrels for June 12, 2019

Joey Ricotta | June 12th, 2019

Normally, any slate that features Justin Verlander, it’s almost a certainty you are playing him at one of your starting pitcher spots and moving on from there. Tonight, however, is a little bit trickier than that. Verlander draws a tough matchup at home against the Milwaukee Brewers. The Brewers hit for power and Verlander can give some up. You will definitely want some exposure to Verlander to some capacity in tournaments, but maybe it’s best we look elsewhere in cash games. With that said, let’s dive in and take a look at today’s Locks, Stacks, and Barrels. Continue reading

Post Winter Meetings Hot Takes

Daniel Corrigan | December 30th, 2018

Winter Meetings are over and the 2019 season is right around the corner. There are still a lot of moves that still need to happen before we really know what teams are what. Machado and Harper remained unsigned. Just for reference, I predicted that Harper would be a Phillie, and Machado would be a Yankee. Continue reading
