    Indians are not a good road team. Im still shocked they scored 9 on the road yesterday

    I just uploaded my DraftKings results. What are good rules-of-thumb for winning percentages on double-ups and tournaments? Any way to parse the data by Pick Em vs Showdown vs Classic, etc?

    They haven’t been hitting, it’s been with pitching. How much money did people lose on Bos stacks this weekend? They gave up 6 runs @ Bos over 3 games, they could give up 10 tonight, just a little less likely than it was a month ago because their pitching is showing signs of life. The team is loaded with young players and they play in the crappiest division in baseball. I think they play a lot closer to 500 ball the rest of the way.

    Either that weekend in Bos was an anomaly or a young team starting to turn the corner, my best guess is the latter but I’m not sold, just thought it was noteworthy.

    or it could have just been the poor performance of BOS teams against L arms. i just can’t get on board with including the observations of home team announcers into the process.

    As pretty much any tool is, it’s the way you implement it in your research. I’ve had my best MLB season ever so far, and I’ve been pretty profitable at DFS over the past 3 years. Plate IQ and LineupHQ are pretty much the go to tools for me at this point. Even if I didn’t work for RG, I would 100% be using them.

    With that said, neither are magical and will not just produce winning lineups. They just help the overall process each person has.

    thanks!

      RG Overall Ranking

      RG Tiered Ranking

    DK Cash:

    Tommy Pham & Yadier Molina

    OR

    Michael Brantley & Yan Gomes

    I keep coming back to this same 2 for 2 swap question. I am favoring the Brantley/Gomes, but it’s really a toss-up at this point for me.

    Pham has been pretty cold for the past month or so. His average has dipped from .340ish to .271 (and Gomes looks to be heating up). Both combos are in good spots, but I’d give the advantage to the CLE guys.

    Anyone use plateiq premium? How valuable has that rating/ranking been for finding homeruns?

    I just signed up a few days ago for a month of premium. I don’t have any time to do research so it has helped me, but I haven’t even had a chance to really look at it that closely.

    There was a 6 minute period where I was scrambling to decide on a new SP2.

    Boston’s announcer- Dennis Eckersley, was really impressed with our bullpen arms too. Look, idc but the sox are categorically playing better and the Indians are going to be heavy chalk tonight. Someone asked for a compelling reason and I just gave a mediocre one. That’s it along with the fact it’s hard to get fired up playing in front of the 27 paid fans that will be in attending tonight’s game at downer park.

    Huh…Betts back tonight.

    Stevie PTFL is barely listenable when he has the Siege there correcting every single mispronounced name he butchers.

    On days like today, when he’s on his own, he’s unbearable.
