    Pretty sure the play is a full game stack in Baltimore tonight. Those are two gas cans waiting to ignite.

    I’d prefer the KC side but I agree both teams are in play.

    Mouth full of chalk here. I thought about getting cute, and fading the obvious …. but sometimes the numbers don’t lie and I do think a couple teams WILL explode for a big night. For once, I am just going to make the simple, obvious plays.

    Most of my LU’s are simply different mixtures of TOR, BAL, KC, and COL.

    We shall see…..

    Does Blackmon worth to be pay for or there is better cheaper options?

    I think you jam him in in cash games, but gpp’s anythings goes. He is probably the top overall hitter on the slate today though.

    What is everyone’s opinion on the following 2v2(ish)

    Merrifield/Ozuna with $600 left over

    Carpenter/one of Cain, Braun, Yelich or Dahl.

    I think so. Him and Mikolas. Richards should be chalk, not so sure about Mikolas.

    Can’t decide who to pick at SS and 2B

    He’s one of the better pitching options tonight but I don’t think he will be chalk in cash. He’s priced in between the higher priced pitchers and some of the low guys that are in ok spots. There are so many good bats to play tonight that I think Richards is too expensive to be your SP2 on DK. I’ll probably be looking at someone like Roark for SP2 with either Greinke/Mikolas.

  • KindGuy

    mikolas has been pretty good and he is facing the team who k’s most in the league. he SHOULD do well. he nails the strike zone and has been pretty effective so far.

    You can argue hes the best pitching value on the slate tonight by being the 6th most expensive pitcher despite being the most talented one.

    Its also a park downgrade for Minnesota, and despite being a righty, Richards has a 32% K rate, 57% ground ball rate and a (-1.6%) hard/soft contact ratio to lefties since the beginning of last year. Plate IQ has the Twins rolling out 7 lefties tonight.

    If he isnt chalk then I found my edge.

    $8 Rally Cap on DK just filled 2.5 hours before lock. Great job guys.

    I agree, its just siege made a very good point on the morning grind today about his price. I’m not a fan paying 10K for him especially if hes chalk. I’ll swallow that ownership with Richards but not Mikolas.

    He will probably pitch well tonight, I just cant see paying 10K for him.

    agreed. he isn’t a 10k pitcher. he is a 8500 guy imo. Richards/roark is whats going to make most of my lu.
