    Is tonight the night the Blue Jays go off?

    Basically tossing your money away the past few days if you have stacked them at all. They have only hit 7 runs or above this whole year 3 times with the highest being 9 runs.

    Cubs on the other hand have done it 11 times, which is absolutely nuts.

    Anyways, I’ll still be rolling out a Blue Jays stack in one lineup because they have to go off one of these nights right?

  • tristanwolf

    Lol I don’t get this Toronto talk that’s been going on lately. They’re an average team who scores average runs. I’ll be stacking them none.

    Scores averages runs? They led the majors and had 125 more runs than the 2nd place team last year and didn’t change their roster.

  • TheBigM

    Meh, the Jays led the league last year in several hitting categories, to expect them to to the same is human nature. One of which I have done a couple of times this year. Even an average team should have more success then they have had the last few games against lower caliber pitching. Definitely in a funk.

    At home i agree. Wouldnt touch them on the road.. They arent leading in runs scored this year

  • RatedDAL

    Ugly pitching slate. Can’t talk myself into any value options at all. deGrom ownership gonna be off the charts.

    Last year means nothing. There are 16 teams with as many or more runs scored this year.

  • paulmsr

    I’d tend to agree that last year doesn’t hold as much weight anymore after this weekend the Jays will already have played 1/5 of their schedule. It’s just about time to start looking at what they are this year.

    As far as Toronto goes: Past performance is not a guarantee of future results. Maybe losing Revere as a table setter has really hurt them. Martin has been awful too, so that doesn’t help things.

    Only one afternoon game today? Thursday is usually a given for a split slate.

    agreed… thursday is usually my “take a day off and recharge” day with its smaller two split slates

  • MrMadness001

    Do you guys normally roll a stack of a team that went HAM the day before or do you tend to fade that team? You would believe the Astros will see more love today by throwing up 16 runs last night. But whenever the Mets have rolled this season I have noticed their ownership percentages are still very low. So are you better off chasing the points or fading and trying to be the one guy who finds the next HAM stack?

    DeGrom should be at least 75% owned in cash. I understanding fading him in GPPs, but he will be in all my lineups today. No need to get cute when he’s the only elite pitcher tonight and facing the Padres in Petco.

  • Markley

    brew crew vs alfredo simon. simon should not be pitching in the major leagues.

  • Lathum

    Been grinding the last 3 weeks entering $1 satellites for the $5 MLB super rally. Ended up with 16 entries and THIS is the slate we get? The pitching choices are terrible. I was really looking forward to spreading around multiple lineups, which I will, but man its hard to look anywhere, especially as a huge Mets fan.

    So whats everyones thoughts on a second option? Mind you I have done no research on the numbers, these are just off the cuff thoughts as I drink my coffee and ignore my children.

    Ross or Hendricks normally would be ok but the matchup is tough. Maybe Holland against a cold Bluejays team?

    I like Conley but again, not a great matchup.

    Miley against a Houston team that is prone to cold streaks?

    Cain and hope the park helps?

    Colin Rea and hope the Mets bats are groggy after a cross country trip with no day off? They were shut down by MAtt Wistler after all.

    Thoughts?

    They also lead the league on the road in runs scored last year.

    After DeGrom the only pitching options I really like on the slate tonight are Tanaka, I think he will go overlooked against Baltimore has great strikeout upside, 23 k’s in 83 PA’s against current Orioles. Then if you want to go cheaper I like J.A. Happ off to a nice start, only Ranger with good numbers against him is Prince, again decent K potential 20 k’s in 89 career PA’s against current Rangers who are K’ing 21.6% of the time against Lefties.

    That’s true but there was definitely a good chance of regression and so far that’s occurred. Russell Martin looks done just as he did early last year. Tulo also looks awful. Encarnacion is showing his age. Ryan Goins wouldn’t be in the majors if couldn’t play good defense. He’s basically a pitcher trying to hit 4 times a game.

    Their lineup isn’t nearly as strong this year. Also given the track record of guys like Michael Saunders (ALWAYS injured) and Justin Smoak (usually not very good) I would expect it to get even worse at some point. Bautista should be fine. He’s in a contract year, so is EE. Martin it’s hard to know. He’s had stretches over the past few years where he just stopped hitting.

    The one thing with the Jays is, when they come out of a funk they can come out big, if we see 1 HR by a Jay today, I can almost guarantee we will see multiple, it’s almost like a pissing contest sometimes.
    There is more chance of a Unicorn running out on the field than the Jays playing small ball.
    I’m rolling the dice today………………………
