MLB DFS - Million Dollar Musings - Thursday, August 13th

Happy Thursday! We’ve got an unusual slate today with five game spread throughout the day. The main slate starts at 4:05 ET, so don’t forget to get your lineups in early. There is also a good chance that we won’t have lineups for the late game when the slate locks, so you’ll need to plan to keep any eye out later for those Padres-Dodgers lineup. We’ve also got some weather concern with the first game in Philadelphia, but Kevin Roth will have an update for us on an early 3:30 Crunchtime. I’ll also be on there along with Andy Means so we can talk about other sports, fruits and seeds.

Thursday Pitching

We’ve got a pretty solid group of pitchers for a small slate, with seven arms that are worth somewhat of a look.

Yu Darvish vs Brewers
Tyler Glasnow at Red Sox
Chris Paddack at Dodgers
Julio Urias vs Padres
Anthony Desclafani vs Pirates
Jake Arrieta vs Orioles
Trevor Williams at Reds

    That is an issue for everyone, my understanding is that they are working on it, so I would expect you’ll be able to see them before too long.

    If Corbin Burnes (6200 on DK) follows Brett Anderson, any interest with the wind blowing in at Wrigley?

    That is certainly not a crazy idea on this particular slate. I wish we had some clarity, and even if Burnes comes in, he has no guarantee of a long leash, though that last game sure was a good sign. I think if we end up losing Arrieta to the weather, you can probably get by with Burnes, as it wouldn’t even be a complete disaster if he didn’t even pitch at all.
    Burnes is absolutely legit, I just don’t trust the Brewers in general with pitching. If they say for sure that Burnes is coming in, I wouldn’t argue at all with you putting him ahead of Arrieta and Williams.

    Great.. thanks for the insight! I guess we’ll just have to keep an eye on twitter for some news maybe around Burnes and what the Brewers may do.
