The 6/20 Daily Round-Up
Welcome to the Thursday edition of the Daily Round-Up. Yesterday we lost James Gandolfini and learned that Paula Deen could possibly be a terrible person. Some Daily Fantasy also went down yesterday.
The Strong Arm
Kris Medlen takes the top honors from last night, giving up 1 ER in 7 IP versus the hapless Mets. EYoung can’t even help this terrible team. They’re starting to reach Charles Barkley regions of turrible.
The Big Wood
Hanley Ramirez and Chris Davis tied for top honors yesterday. The Yanks need to move Phil Hughes to Jersey or something. He does not like pitching in New York. Chris Davis went DOUBLE DONG ™. Socrdave is still trying to not pay me royalties every time he uses DOUBLE DONG ™ on Grinders Live. I put ™ after it, that means I trademarked it!!!
This little Puig-y made a big splash his first day in the Big Apple.
Mike Brantley went DD and was a One Man Gang and single-handedly got me two entries into the Midsummer Classic over on DraftKings.
Hindsight is 20/20
No big surprises yesterday, except for maybe Eric Bedard. The Brew Crew is starting to hit Astros/Marlins/Mets levels of turrible. If the ‘stros bull pen could have hung on, Bedard would’ve been the Strong Arm of the day.
The Top 5
5 Hottest Pitchers of the Past Two Weeks
No real shockers on the list here, with maybe the exception of Bumgarner who has been sneaky good. Matt Harvey with some run support would be Cy Young material. How a pitcher in such a large market can be so under-appreciated, is something only the Mets can accomplish.
Hot Lunch Special of the Day
A Player Under 3k on FanDuel Guaranteed to Give the Opposing Pitcher a Hot Lunch
Yesterday I liked Russell Martin. He put up 3 points on FD, nothing spectacular, but still solid.
Today I like Gregor Blanco getting a match-up at home against the Fish.
Happy Grinding! May your punts be Hall of Famer Ray Guy-esque and go looooong!
