    lol already gave up a run god help me

  • TimmerRC

    On FD, Syndergaard is 18% owned, Pomeranz 8%, Stroman 4.6%, MadBum 7.8…

    Matt Joyce 11%, while the rest of the COL/PIT batters are 10-15%

    Manny Machado only 3.6%, of note to me only, maybe.

    I’m fading mad bum tonight. I don’t know why but I just think he doesn’t meet value tonight. The Padres are actually third in avg vs left handers although I’m sure that a lot of that was at coors field vs Delarosa. It could bite me in the ass but I think Thor and Salazar are the better option since they are both cheaper and in good spots.

    I faded him too. Problem is it’s too easy to get both Thor and Salazar tonight while mixing in the value bats. So if the 2 pitchers go off with double digit Ks I fear too many people will have them too.

  • dirty_drawlz1

    if ARI/STL goes off I could be sitting real pretty ill just say that…

    Agreed. Also I don’t like playing pitchers in a park with the wind blowing out at 18 mph, I don’t care who it is. I noticed nobody mentioned Archer all day and I looked at him for a second but once I saw how hard the Os hit him I passed. Watch him be the pitcher of the night lol he does have the stuff. I have played him every other night he has pitched too so that will be fitting haha.

    i threw together a lineup featuring him and Noah. I think the Orioles bats have cooled off a lot, and there are a lot of strikeouts to be had.

    So done with baseball….there just really is no way of going contrarian without being totally stupid…Thought Syndeergard would be low owned tonight because everyone was spending up for Rockies/Pirates bats and no way they could afford him…was expecting about 10-15% in Single entry GPP….Nope…28%….28%!! On a night with all those expensive bats…this is just stupid…there is no edge anymore.

    I’m hoping my thinking of choosing Tehran and Walker, bc of the game the Red Sox and Stros played last night, works out for me!

    Thank you, Miggy!

    or so many thought that would be contrarian it ended it shifting the other way lol

    I apologize if this comes across as offensive-sounding, but if you thought PICKING SYNDERGAARD was “being contrarian”, maybe you don’t really get what that’s all about?

    Why in the world would you think Noah would be low owned lol?? He is literally almost unhittable and matchup proof. Anyone who has paid any attention to MLB this year knows that. Reminds me of Westbrook when Durant is out, just plug him in and go from there. I did a few lineups without him just to be contrarian but I figured he would be north of 50 percent owned. He is 68 percent in the 33 Fastball on DK.

    When you have expensive bats like the Rockies/Pirates tonight on FD, yes, I thought he would be contrarian….Figured that was THE stack…ZERO chance to get Syndeegard in with all the KEY bats from that game…Marte, Arenado, etc.

  • choppadown

    If Cabrera hits another HR, you have me to thank, I got scared off him due to weather concerns and threw in Teixeira.

  • Mccloud4203

    edwin !! boom

  • fanturds

    so archer has 5K through 2 IP

  • firepimp

    This post is why I think there is an edge. If you thought he was going to be 10% vs an awful team at a great park while pitching as a top 5 pitcher this year then you are why I have an edge. For that, I thank you.

    Did you happen to give it a try?

    I think the true elite pitchers are never, ever low owned. Sorry if I sounded harsh in the previous post, I was just surprised.

  • dirty_drawlz1

    if Archer was cheaper I woulda threw him in one .Baltimore K rate is glorious

    10K vs a team who owns him AND he has sucked so far? eww
