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

In my last offering, I suggested using the Rays’ bulk reliever as a streaming option on Wednesday. Jalen Beeks got the call to follow Ryne Stanek as an opener. The outing wasn’t quite was I was expecting or hoping to see from Beeks. He went three shutout innings, allowing four hits but no walks and four strikeouts. He even picked up the win! So why was I disappointed? Well, I thought he could go further into games, maybe pitch five or so innings each outing, and get close to starting pitcher stats while picking up sneak wins. However, looking at his game logs, I see that he’s only gone over four innings twice so far in his usage as a follower. So, while he didn’t get the big outing that I had hoped for, he was still useful, especially in leagues that have start limits. I think he’s still worth using in this role in later opportunities. Now, on to the weekend starters!
