    I noticed Beermakersfan only has 8 days of results for baseball this year despite nearly 20 days of video write-ups. It’s always interesting to me how much an on air personality plays. Beermaker was the first face of DFS that I recall. Seeing a pundit that’s been atop the hill and isn’t jamming in 100’s of plays despite staying active in the community seems like a humble approach which may be one many need to keep in perspective. I don’t mean to slander or put the guy on a pedestal and I know there have been a string of user related posts lately but on a site such as RG these are our celebrities and the speculation is interesting.

    Wanted to jump in here as I am a big believer in 100% transperency. Recently a very close family member of mine has been battling end stage cancer. This has become the primary focus for me right now and has required a ton of my time and a lot of out of state travel. Unfortunately some things have to be sacrificed and my recent DFS play has been one of those things.

    I take my role at RG very serious and take great pride in running the “fantasy bar” and thank each and every one of you for supporting the Daily Fantasy 6 Pack over all these years. I put a ton of time, thought and energy into each pick and every video and that will not change even under my current situation. I will remain dedicated to providing my thoughts/analysis on all days I will be providing content now and into the future.

    Maintaining multiple lineups on multiple sites during MLB season can be a job on its own as you all know and it’s been difficult finding time to do that recently. Im a big believer in not half assing anything so Ill never just throw together lineups just for the sake of playing.

    Let me stress I am always studying the game and staying on top of the news to make sure you guys receive my very best each and every day. I spend multiple hours daily to provide what I feel are the best plays on that day, and again that will not change. I love what I do and love playing DFS but sometimes life gets in the way.

    Hope this clears up any uncertainties, any questions I’m always here to respond.

    My wife recently won her battle with end-stage cancer. While she has residual problems, most notably a bad heart as a side-effect of her treatment, she is doing is much better now.

    Keep the faith !!!

    Also, and hopefully not to sound too harsh…. I really would like to see an end to threads like this.

    We all have our own special circumstances, private battles, etc., so prior to bringing to the forums maybe an initial private message to the “accused” would be a better initial option?

    After all, don’t we all deserve the benefit of the doubt?

    Wasn’t looking to uncover bad news and I’m sorry to do so. I’ve seen this play out with several family members in the past few years myself. How much a pundit plays is really of their own choosing but of course interesting to us not behind the scenes. I always appreciate your analysis and dedication, I hope for the best to you and your family, and Salud!

    As for your work, IMO, your commitment to what you do is very clear in the end product. I’ve always enjoyed it, and if I have 5 minutes to research, they’re probably spent watching your video. Keep it up!

    Beer, you six pack has been on point this year! Waccha? Jerkstore? I must say, my bankroll is very appreciative! Best wishes to you and your family and thanks for all you do around here.
