    The dimensions down the line are the same at 325 ft. Left Center is 375 in PR while Progressive is 370, Center is 404 to 405 Right Center is 375 in both ball parks. So conclusions dimensions are almost ‘Identical’.

    Yeah but hitting in 30 degree Cleveland a lot different than 80 degree San Juan

    No I wouldn’t fade Kluber in Yankee Stadium in July I’ll definitely have some Indians bats tonight though

  • Ndepompei

    What pairing do we think will be higher owned in DK tournaments Kluber/Wood or Kluber/Chirinos? I’m thinking Kluber/Chirinos will be higher owned since you can fit Astros in with them

  • yanksfan1

    Aside from temperature, do we know anything about the Puerto Rico stadium?

  • finsup613

    Any thoughts on the KC vs TOR game today. I’m thinking of trying the single game Showdown. Seems like Garcia is a must play…

    Will add, Hiram Bithorn Stadium the OF wall looks to be 8 ft all the way around, whereas Progressive has the 19 ft wall in left.

    its been there all morning,,,,I started doing DK lineups at 9am and it was there

    I suck at MLB. Been trying for years. Only sport I use an optimizer for.

    I never noticed till now. Of course I just reserved my contest cause I had running to do this morning. So Ignore my previous post.

  • Ronboogie6

    Olson/Cron or Votto/Ramos? I have Olson with Davis and Joyce as a mini stack as of now.

    Ump in the TEX/TAM game is notoriously hitter friendly (Marquez). Takes Yonny off the table for me and solidifies some hitters there.

    Such a dilemma…Yonnys price could overcome that though. I might use him sparingly. Yet I agree Marquez, no good for pitchers. Just ask Lance McCullers and his never ending string of walks last game. I even posted how I dropped my Mcullers exposure last game out due to Marquez. He’s one of the few umps that will take me off a pitcher. I’ve actually watched some games he’s called, it’s painful if you rostered the pitcher. However, Yonny has good control and is only 4.7k. I wouldn’t expect a great game, however, he’s a big favorite, so he could get the win and limit the damage. If you’re happy with 10 DK points and think you can get it done with the higher priced bats and and Kluber, there is still merit to using him sparingly.

    Honestly, some of the best nights I’ve had in MLB DFS is when I use the optimizer 10 minutes prior to first pitch and like what I see. I’ve won $1000 doing this twice in the past week and a half

    Never have, never will, use an optimizer for any sport. Yet I don’t knock others who do. If your goal is to make a bunch a money and the optimizer is working, go with it. My main objective is to be profitably entertained, even if the profit is slight. For me the fun is making the lineup. I will however, use projections as a tie breaker for my last man in, if I’m stuck between a few players.

    McCullers/Corbin will be my combo in most DK lineups

  • 7klub06

    Astros right handed batters for tonight?
    Pitchers, Corbin-Wood-Chirinos-Wheeler-Bettis and then of course Kluber and Ohtani

    Yeah, the optimizer has some voodoo magic though. The line-up it gave me 10 minutes before lock last night had Nomar Mazar in it. He scored me 21 points with a HR and was 0.9% owned.
