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

Houston Astros 57-33

Positives

Once again, the Houston Astros are among the best teams in baseball. New signing Michael Brantley has been one of the highlights of this team, leading all qualified Astros with a .324 batting average. Not to mention Yordan Alvarez, who made his major league debut on June 9th. In 19 games, Alvarez has hit seven home runs and has an OPS of 1.141.  Their pitching has been dominant as well, as both their team ERA (3.86) and WHIP (1.14) rank fourth and second, respectively.

MIKE MOUSTAKAS IS GOOD AT HITTING – FACT

Kody Clawson (@kodyclawson)

The real fact of the matter is that Mike Moustakas has been good at hitting for a few years now. The move from Kauffman Stadium to Miller Park for his home games has finally given him the chance to show off his power. I was concerned that the move to second base would affect his hitting in some capacity, but this was an arbitrary hypothesis anyway. The only fantasy effect has been positive, as the added positional flexibility has only aided fantasy owners. Continue reading
