    Yesterday went well.

    I dodged Cole and Trout so It did go wonderfully for me. There have been days where I didn’t sidestep some landmines though.

    Today’s another day. Love the baseball grind.

    If the Mariners could have done legitimately anything it could have been a night. Can’t complain about breaking even, though.

    Lots of pitching options tonight should spread ownership out.

    First one I landed on was Brandon Woodruff. However, here’s Roth:

    MIL @ KCR – A batch of storms rolling through around first pitch. It’ll clear later this evening, so they could late start and play, it just might be a long wait. Riskiest game on the slate.”

    Over half the slate locks before 8:10 P.M. to boot.

    No reason Bubic should be 4K either.

    Had a ticket for the $4 FD $100k last night. Went White Sox stack with Madrigal and Yermin, had Donaldson, dodged Cole and opted for Ferris Buehler instead of Darvish to enable Trout and Nelson Cruz. Cruz had one of the most extensive and dominant BvP against Keuchel imaginable and they are both basically similar players as they were, so score another one for the anti-BvP crowd. Trout leaves with a hangnail, Luplow departs with a swollen labia, and my late night thump options are on the bench in no time, fizzled to $10. Oh well, not like throwing a single bullet into a giant contest is a recipe for anything real good. Mark Nelson Cruz down for a double dong today.

    But to the point of whomever was bitching about how perfect you have to be on MLB—and I think someone else already aptly called them out—the guy who won the $100k had Trout. Pretty much impossible to spend up for a dud in NBA or NFL or even high-variance PGA and win $100k on a $4 entry.

    To spend on what bats though?

    I get the point, but you could do 2 of philly, atl , or nyy. And if there’s money left , Patino is in a great spot and cheap. These are gpp flyers obviously.

    Yeah, that’s too cheap, yet he is a dicey play. I’d build a couple of Milwaukee stacks (or have lineups with 4-5 Milwaukee hitters) if you have a good amount of Bubic.

    Milwaukee is very strong versus LHP, yet they K a lot, so he may have a floor. Yet they also walk a lot, and Bubic has been walking batters. He could, although not likely, put up a negative score here. Or he could do well if he keeps the walks down.

    No, never works 🤷‍♂️

    I like the Rays. Don’t need a 4,000 pitcher to fit them in, though. And if Roth is nervous about Milwaukee – K.C. playing, I’m nervous. Not even sure we’ll have much more information before lock, but we’ll see.

    P.S. I don’t mind bringing it back with a couple of Baltimore bats, either.

    First look without taking weather into account…. Urias, Woodruff, Snell… maybe Taillon, maybe Heaney….

    Rays lefties, Nats, game in Toronto (FL), Yankees!! maybe CWS, maybe SEA, some SD and LAD but not full stacks I don’t think

    Tim Anderson (again) Teoscar Hernandez and, considering salary, Martin Maldonado are your BvP specials of the day

    You forgot to mention Robert Grossman, perhaps the best BvP of the day

    Don’t mind Dunn or Turnbull either

    True but only 3 ABs…. impressive though! If he did that yesterday I am $100k richer :)

    That game can be 3-2 as well as 10-8…. don’t have a read on that for now. I guess it comes down to how many lineup you enter, but I like to keep my pitchers roster tight and they will not make the cut in my builds

    HUGE sample….haha

    Would be amazing if he hits another, although clearly highly unlikely. Still suggests he sees him well, so a single or a double seems like a realistic expectation.

    Edit…just like josh bell yesterday. Was like 2-4 with 2 homers off Alzolay. Didn’t homer, yet went 2 for 2 with 2 singles.

    They’re both projected well for the price.

    My thinking, is that one will likely do well (15-25 DK) while the other prolly ends up with a single digit score.

    RG weather page doesn’t quite have it as drastic, but on other weather pages where I look at wind, I’m seeing 20+ mph straight in from LF in Dunedin.

    Give me the Indians contrarian stack all day! Bomb Heaney!!!

  • jsw3ent

    Whats the deal with FANDUEL—-every other day it seems —location can’t be verified —-all settings are correct—-been playing on there since inception —even played yeasterday—-can’t get in today . I even logged out——I even shut down my PC—-it allowed me to make a deposit earlier today—-but still can’t enter a lineup

    The guy who won 100K with Trout needed every other player to have a HR mult score game along with a pitcher throwing 10 strikeouts. Takes an incredible amount of luck to pull that off. You need one player to score 40 pts to have a dud.

    If you are looking for value bats DET and PIT are sources I like both against hittable pitchers
