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. Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. Let’s take a look at what we have today.
The Los Angeles Angels in recent years can be best summed up in one word: Underwhelming. Since the call-up of the MLB’s best player Mike Trout, the Angels have played just three postseason games, and haven’t finished with a record above .500 since the 2015 season. Continue reading →
Pretty much everybody that I gave to you yesterday performed well in some capacity, with the exception of Joey Gallo who went 0-4 with four strikeouts. Today, I want more consistency from my picks than I got yesterday. The Rockies and Padres game was a let-down offensively and the wrong part of the Phillies’ lineup went off yesterday. Both pitchers earned quality starts and Jacob deGrom even went 2-3 with a double, a single, and an RBI. Let’s get into today’s picks.
We’re back at it again for another edition of Around the Horn, hopefully, your lineups produced last night, plenty of games to breakdown for tonight’s 14-block of games beginning at 7:05 Eastern. We will get to the pitching side of things momentarily, as for targeting offense there are six games with over/under totals of at least nine runs combined. Grab your cleats, get out the pine tar, time to go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
Jack Flaherty seems to be figuring it out. On 4/22, Flaherty had 18 swinging strikes (40% CSW) with ten total strikeouts in a win at home against the Brewers (6.0 IP 3 H 4 ER 1 BB 10 K). Flaherty was able to dominate with impressive fastball command which has eluded him all season, racking up eight of his 18 swinging strikes on his four-seam fastball. I am a Flaherty owner and have long loved his polish and prospect pedigree, but something is wrong.
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. Every day there are safe bets that flop and values that hit big, but we need to stick with our strategy in evaluating and playing. I apologize for not having my season-long numbers this week. Starting next week on May 1st, I will put up my season numbers and will track them as we go along. For today though, let’s dive right in.
A bevy of games for tonight’s MLB card. 14 games in total to pick from to build your roster. It appears that the only weather concern will be in Cleveland where there is rain forecasted for much of the evening. Specific games to target are The Dodgers at Brewers, Colorado Rockies at home to the Philadelphia Phillies, New York Mets at St.Louis Cardinals and Houston at Texas. These games project as some of the best games to focus on in terms of offensive production. Continue reading →
