Only a few weeks until the Post Season season begins so our player pool to choose from will be widdled down considerably soon. As for tonight, the Dodgers and Mets send a couple stud pitchers to the mound, the Padres visit the Rockies with an implied 13 run total attached and the Twins and Indians continue their important series at Progressive Field. Let’s dig right in and go Around the Horn! Continue reading →
Glad to get back on board with baseball this week as, even though my NFL cash lineup performed as expected, it failed to cash in for my entry in a double-up contest. My last two lineups for MLB have resulted much better, however, so let’s continue the trend tonight for this full 14 gamer. Giddy up, we’re going for a trip Around the Horn! 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.

This is slightly higher than his 2.83 BB/9 minor league career mark, but not terrible for his first exposure to major league hitters. Continue reading →
