    I never thought in 2018 that Cole Hamels would be the highest priced pitcher on a slate.

    Odd slate we got here tonight. No aces on the mound, yet there aren’t many awesome hitting spots either. There are some good hitting spots, yet I see a lot of weak pitcher in pitchers park type scenarios. Or decent pitcher in hitters parks. Nothing jumps out as of yet.

    Hamels hasn’t been half bad this year. He faced some tough matchups and has done well. So that means he’ll probably get rocked tonight in an easier one. 😰

    Hitters slate

  • superjon

    I like Hammels and Price on FD

    Mix with a Cards stack and Freeman

  • bucherpsu08

    I may go 100% on Archer on DK.

    Good luck with that…. Not playing Hammels or Price..

    A min-stack against Hamels looks like the play to me. Abreu, Davidson, and beef.

    Pitching tonight is AWFUL

  • GMen813

    A lot of odd projected run lines here tonight. Maybe I’m missing something with weather or another variable but some spots to jump on in my opinion for hitters.

  • Semaj89

    Anybody mind having a discussion on umpire data? I dont think I’m reading swish analytics page correctly.

    For example Bill Miller is known as an extreme pitchers ump correct? While he does offer an 18% K boost, everything else is pretty near the mean. He suppresses walks by 17%, and offensive stats (R, BA, OBP, SLG) by an average of 5%.

    18% more K’s and 17% less walks are pretty extreme I suppose. So I guess those two areas are where we should put the most emphasis correct?

    It may work cause those guys can hit lefties for power, yet I don’t think Hamels will be the chalk, so if you’re simply looking for a leverage play against the chalk pitcher, I’m not sure a WSox stack will have the desired effect.

  • bucherpsu08

    I don’t see any chalk pitchers on this slate.

  • ripking

    Seems like a good day to play both pitchers on the early morning showdown. What hitters to take though?

    Chalk “should” be VV but I’m not convinced enough people look deep enough. I think Kuhl, Hamels and Skaggs will be higher owned, only one of those is actually a good play if you ask me.

    nah , VV will be the chalk , but out of those you mentioned , Skaggs is the only reasonable play and he is overpriced for his upside

    I think ownership will be spread out. There are reasons not to play each pitcher. Even though the Cards suck, you can see the danger with the top of the order, in spite of splits favoring the lower-order LHBs (like fowler, carpenter).

    Btw, who remembers chalk Carpenter day when he was still leadoff but was mired in suckage, yet was chalk and hit that HR (or 2)? Yeah I do, I didn’t have him. I’m still pissed about that day, lol, even though I’ve done well in fading him all other days.

    This is one of those slates that I’ll be happy if neither of my SPs goes negative.
