Tuesday, August 20th

Happy Tuesday! We’ve got a full slate for tonight with loaded pitching that has come to drown out the memory of Brendan McKay chalk night. With all the good pitching, we have only two games that open with a total of 10 runs or higher, and a handful of spots that are bound to be quite popular. Let’s jump on in and start narrowing down this pitcher pool as much as possible. This will be one of those slates where you can spread out quite far, so don’t fret if your choices differ from mine.

His consistent success in the NFBC tournaments recently earned him a prestigious spot in their Hall of Fame.

    Dave: so I expect your articles to be full of information on drafting a team. That is the point. What is however great and surprising about your articles is that they make me laugh almost every day. Awesome job man

    Does Beeks coming in after an opener help or hurt his projection on DK?

    slight downgrade, his 85 and 92 pitch outings were as an actual starter, but I am not changing my opinion on him or moving him up or down my rankings. Still by far my favorite of the cheap nonsense pitchers. Still in good shape to get the win and pitch 4-5 innings

    I don’t know yet. I’ll cliff note it later this afternoon, but all those top teams are so close, that it is kind of silly to even separate them. That is to say, I’ll tell you when I get it figured out, but the difference between team #1 and team #10 is so small, that my rankings should not affect your view of them.

    This bit about the pool has legs as a recurring character. I put the cover on my pool 3 weeks ago when NFL started, but I might have to get that little net out and start the pool vacuum tonight. Yes, as usual, my pool is filthy.

    At least Bartolo Colon isn’t around to be in my pool anymore. Those were some tough images.

    “Darts don’t have eyes”……I love it….nothing beats Cheeseisgood at this point, but a little Dave Handey wouldn’t have been too bad either!
