    I can’t believe how under the radar Schoop has been.

    Same with Cesar Hernandez 4.4% @ 2,900 DK solid switch hitter with legit XBH and SB potential

    Shouldn’t have faded Hazelbaker…

    Pretty sure that was his point

    Why don’t they have Billy Hamilton batting 1st? I understand he isn’t a great hitter but the guy has 6 SB at 5 ABs against Jon Lester. We all know that Jon Lester and David Ross are terrible at stopping people stealing bases. Doesn’t make sense why they don’t have him batting 1st.

    You need to get on base to steal bases.

    True. I was wrong about the stats. He has only 5 ABs against Lester with 4 hits and 6 SB. He has more SB against him than ABs. That’s crazy.

    probably from PR. Which means someone else got the AB in the first place.

    First season playing MLB DFS. As any new DFS sport I pick up, I always start with the $1 50/50 just to get a feel for the game and learn how to research.

    So, does anyone mind to answer a question for me: what is an average cash line in a MLB GPP?

    Didn’t think of that. That is potentially what it is.

    I kind of remember Hamilton running wild on Lester (stealing 2nd and 3rd more than once) might be wrong though

    Oh damn. Guess it wasn’t pinch running then. Yeah if he gets on base, he is going to go nuts on Lester. The only reason I am thinking they have him at 9 is that they think Hamilton has a better chance at his AB against Lester after Lester has gone through a bunch of ABs already, and that if he can get on base and steal to third then the heart of the order should be able to bring him home.

    The scoring changed in FD this year, but so far in experience with a full slate it’s been like 140+ points. I had 205 the other night and did okay. Top scores are better than NFL was.

    Hamilton stole 5 bases last year vs Lester on June 14. 2 hits and a walk that game with three at bats.

    He mostly hit the bottom of the order last year from what I remember. Even if he hits 9th he’s almost like having another leadoff runner.

    Jungmann was taken advantage of today.

    I don’t think it’s possible to fade him right now..DK will have to correct his price soon, but until then 2500 for an OF batting second against a bad/mediocre pitcher is a must start. Even if he does nothing it opens up a ton of money.

    Finnegan and Matz are my two under the radar guys tonight
