    BAL L/U still not out. It’s the only one form the early slate I haven’t seen yet. I will adjust on the fly for my BAL players if some are not starting

    It’s out. Just check Twitter. Was out 30 minutes ago. Schoop, Machado, Davis, Trumbo is 2-5

  • monarch

    NVM…im an idiot that was 3 days ago.

    Who are we thinking for pitching early, I might roll the dice with Lester, but Bundy, Roark, Santana?

    I’m putting marquez in a few of my LU’s. he has solid numbers and has thrown well away from coors. Temps are going to be cold in MINN with winds blowing in from left, and why not take a risk when the pitching is so boom or bust this morning anyways

    Machado is out for BAL.

  • bjacksonibew

    Yeah, i like Davis/Smith/Trumbo/Jones yt concerned about the wind

  • monarch

    It’s out now….no Machado today

  • tonytone1908

    Any games to worry about getting rained out? Seems a few have decent chances. Thank god for late swap if they do.

    Anyone know if Goodwin can steal bases?

    anyone can swipe a bag vs. the P-RATS

  • BRW73

    Sounds like the Braves/Blue Jays game could get physical tonight, might be a good idea to avoid this game.

    glasnow has given up 20 SB’s in 11 starts too

  • firepimp

    Did rotogrinders and Kevin Roth split ways? I’ve never seen the weather update look like that.

    No. He tweeted out early this morning he did not have time for early day update.

  • KindGuy

    I learned my lesson and I will NOT be rostering Glasnow today.

    That kid has some serious work to do.

  • bjacksonibew

    Whats up with the cubs weather

    I have a lot of interest in Marquez at pitcher on DK. He’s priced too cheaply for a player who has pitched well away from Coors. The twins could certainly get to him, yet upside is there as well. Regardless of the outcome I like think he makes a good play today, considering the price.

    agreed

    I’m all in on Santana. People keep screaming that regression is coming. It might be, but until it shows up, I’m going to keep playing him.

    I think his sample size is too small. One start away where he allowed a hit per inning and a walk over 6 innings for a loss is by no means shabby, but I wouldn’t say he is a road warrior when thats his best EVER.

    Gonna go the Dirt Lavert route and stick with the quarter arcade for a while until my bankroll gets up back up there.

    If I hadn’t destroyed myself lately and lost about a third of what I was working with I’d send and throw a h2h to you for like 5$ just to help you out.

    I have been so bad the past week or so. I did max the QA twice which didn’t totally work out (one was a fluky 2 gamer with one game that was basically a no hitter on both sides for 7 innings). So that definitely hurt me. Been taking the gut punches from LOL upsets too. There’s honestly no lu differentiation in it as there are only so many combos too so the GPPs are just harder to make money in because of the crazy ties.

    And to cap it off I drafted a 1$ for PGA and forget to draft a lu. So I get to look at that laugh at me all weekend. So here’s to tonight and LOL tomorrow. Really make or break for me.

    Are you only looking at 2017 stats for him? I show he has only pitched 6 innings in away games, but his away splits for 2016 are horrible. I actually did a MIN stack based on that. Course he only played a few innings that year as well.

    I like Smith/Mancini/Jones for today

    Me too, and the Rockies aren’t that good against RHP and K a ton, fingers crossed.

    Faded my Cubbies today too, hopefully they are like last night, and score a bunch but don´t hit any homers, and all my mini stacks go off.

  • renegade68

    Small Twins stack for me against Marquez. Lots and lots of bats to choose from today, which means every game will probably end up 3-2 and I’ll pick the worst 2 pitchers available or they’ll get hurt after 8 pitches and leave the game.

  • Dirt_Lavert

    I also just looked at the main slate. Wow. Ouch. Feels really fluky.

    Weather in KC and the the entire late slate hahahaha

    Check this note on the kid starting for SEA. If they let him throw a full game (which I doubt they will) I’m definitely looking at him as he’ll probably have the lowest ownership with the Velasquez and then Covey will probably be somewhere in that range too.

    UPDATE: Gaviglio racked up four strikeouts over two innings in Thursday’s 7-2 loss to the Blue Jays, giving up an earned run on two hits.

    ANALYSIS: Gaviglio was razor-sharp, throwing 25 of his 30 pitches for strikes and getting immediately ahead on seven of the eight hitters he faced. His one mistake led to a 407-foot solo home run by Justin Smoak, but the 26-year-old righty was otherwise stellar in his big-league debut. Gaviglio projects for a solid stretch of time with the Mariners given the myriad of injuries to the pitching staff, and the possibility remains he could see a turn or two in the starting rotation.

  • KindGuy

    First time in a while I haven’t done a 5 man stack.

    Every team on the early slate is in a position to succeed so I had to get some exposure to all the games. Hopefully my mini stacks go ham.
