    68% la stella for me in main slate

    Great job!
    Felt like chasing pts… but I guess the Angels were the late stack

    Nice!!! As an added bonus that buries the last pitcher who had a chance to do anything tonight. I might hang onto the cash line tonight after all.

    well, it was a price point play but also had to like the wind blowing out to right in LA and the volatility of peralta. la stella is actually a good hitter, just was always blocked by someone better with the cubs. i was hoping last night was a sign he was breaking out of the slump

    Dansby Swanson looks awesome this year so far….finally breaking out?

    I said yesterday I was going heavy on him, played him in 8 of 14 lineups. Had a very nice outing.

    Played him today in 2 of 7. Unfortunately those 2 lineups were my only 2 Degrom Lineups. The other hitters were also kind of weak in my Swanson Chicken Dinner lineups as well. But yeah, seems like he’s coming around. Wasn’t he like a top prospect a few years back?

    Played him every day the first week…. got tired of getting nothing and they dropped him from the top of the order…. what do you know, maybe that’s what he needed

    i’ve been heavy on him all year so far and it’s been paying dividends, his pricing has also barely moved (generally around $3700 before Coors). he was the #1 overall pick in 2015 draft

  • cjs5555

    PHI was winning 6-1 w Nola on the mound. Now losing 10-6 in 10th inning. not so fast, philly fans!!

    me too, was off him for a few games then came back last night and again tonight. but last night and tonight were really good matchups for him too

  • yisman

    willians and la stella 1% owned

    la stella worked out, the Twins guy busted despite them scoring 10

    doesn’t matter much anyway with deGrom’s negative

  • cjs5555

    i swear…if derek holland ends up the top scoring pitcher so help me….

    given how many pitchers have sucked tonight, degrom’s negative isn’t hurting that much

  • SkateFiend

    I’m tantalizingly close to recouping my entry fees because most of the pitchers are getting rocked.

    This is like a Yahoo NHL slate, when you can still cash even after middling games from your goalies. As long as you spread around the offense.

    Nope. Luckily I will easily cash with Mets/As/Brewers despite Degrom negative. He was close to 50% owned.

    i’m actually up $24 right now despite being 54% deGrom, 38% Lucchesi, 84% Loaisiga, 24% Minor

    Right?
    Amazing how much I moved up (briefly) just because of Lucchesi 1st inning…. brief fooling moment
    Truth be told, his breaking ball isn’t sharp, but only Pillar hit the ball hard and Renfroe made a meal of it…. everything else was either a blooper or a ground ball with good eyes
    It happens

  • cjs5555

    lucchesi is done…. -2.4 on the night, matches deGrom. i guess that makes him the better value??

  • depalma13

    Minnesota stack 90 points, everyone else 3 combined.

  • snaggzzz

    What a crazy night. What’s the cut for DK cash gonna be? 60?!? Ha!

  • TimmerRC

    Considering how the day went, Greinke is hanging in there lol

    85 so far….anything under 100 is a pretty low scoring night.

  • SkateFiend

    A break even night on baseball will ease the pain of the Mario Hezonja late scratch and the crappy things that happened at the 76ers game.

  • TimmerRC

    Angel’s game had an ump leave, they’re running with only 3 umps now… how do you do that, lol?

  • firemedicpat

    Alonso double dong. Thank god.
