Back at it again for tonight’s huge 13-game main slate. Last night was kind of a wash for me, but tonight is where we get back full-fledged in the win column. Or at least I hope. Let’s take a look at who we can target tonight. Continue reading →
After some time away to reconfigure the Stream Machine for in-season matchup data (as well as taking some time off for personal reasons), I’m ready to roll out some new streaming options for the weekend matchups.

On top of contending earlier than many expected they also possess the seventh best farm system in baseball. Led by two talented arms and a plethora of position players the A’s will only continue to improve.
The New York Yankees host the Oakland Athletics at 8PM ET tonight. While the Yankees set the major league record with 267 HRs, the A’s were no slouch clubbing 227. With a bullpen game likely in store from the A’s side, the Yankees throw Luis Severino who couldn’t get out of the first inning last year. This could be a slugfest.
