    You might be right. Just really like my LUs with him

    Won’t have to do too much rearranging if he’s out.

    Time ti rethink my stratergy , stacking lowest o/u games. Vegas has been drunk lately

  • mr_papageorgio

    Are things going back to normal today or is this another Marlins/O’s with Turnbull/Beede for all the money kind of night? If it is I may just sit this one out.

    I’m treating yesterday as just being weird

  • TeamTwerk

    What’s does Tim Anderson have to do to get a promotion in this batting order? How do you not have this guy batting top 3

  • me_mike84

    i’m gonna give @zline34 strategy a try today. gonna lurk around and wait for people to mention top plays and then cross them off my list.

    i don’t think last night was a total anomaly in baseball….

  • hassman

    So am I. There is alot of variance in MLB and it was just one of those nights.

    I don’t know what normal is anymore, but I think things tend to even out and we are seeing aspects of it every slate. Every slate we’re seeing teams progressions and regressions. Not to sound generic, but what a team was doing in April means nothing at this point, but still weights heavy on whole season numbers. Certain teams just aren’t as bad or as good as we thought. Looking at the metrics and spotting these places at this point until things do even out is going to be fairly important for the next few weeks.

    As Panda said, we need to rethink how we view some teams. For example….the WhiteSox…while they strike out at decent clip, have been destroying righties for like 2 weeks now (Marlins for even longer). So if you’re going to pitch any righty versus these teams, understand the risk. Aces are not automatic.

    Second…Vegas…has been pretty good with the totals. However, there is no such thing as an implied total. They are 2 completely separate sets of odds. And while oddsmakers have every incentive to be accurate with the game total. IMO…when it comes to the +- they just want to be in the middle of public opinion, and get equal action on both sides. So take that number with a grain of salt. Movement in that number could mean something sometimes, others times, might not.

    I was mostly being sarcastic with my post but this is a very good point. Baseball has the most variance of any sport and that’s what we’re seeing. Like you said, some teams are not as good as they looked at the start (Seattle is probably the best example) and others are not quite as offensively inept as expected (White Sox, Marlins, O’s). Beyond that, guys/teams have off nights or nights where they can’t miss at the plate. That’s a lot harder to predict but IMO that also makes baseball the best DFS sport because it levels the playing field and anyone can win on any given day.

    Just have to keep riding the variance waves.

  • mr_papageorgio

    How is Angel Hernandez still a major league umpire?

  • yisman

    Obviously I understand baseball has variance but I’ve been playing MLB DFS for five seasons and I have never seen aces in good spots get blown up as frequently as it’s happening in 2019.

    I keep telling myself I should just punt pitcher every night, yet every night I find myself paying up.

  • monarch

    Ya…I wasnt shocked that Stras got lit up because that happens. What killed me was Fried immediately got teed up despite all the data saying he was probably in the best run prevention spot. Then an hour later Miggy hits a slam off Snell. It was a troll type slate.

    people have been asking for years and the answer is the umpires’ union.

    MLB can’t get rid of him, no matter how many calls he blows.

    5 max on fanduel. Three game slate, all 5 of chipotles entries have Sanchez plus 3 white sox. If that’s how you win, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to do it

  • jgadharf

    All 150 of his lineups are the same in the $70k Squeeze. Must have not edited his lineups in time. Wow.

    finally looked over last night

    despite Strasburg, I almost cashed. https://www.draftkings.com/contest/gamecenter/73255691?uc=1517036713

    Bishop PH for after 2 PAs hurt and then Lucroy had his chances but put up a 0 anyway. Gurriel busted too. West Coast let down when I actually had a chance.

    Probably out for the season.

    https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/06/indians-place-carlos-carrasco-on-il-due-to-blood-condition.html

    Carlos was recently diagnosed with a blood condition following several weeks of feeling lethargic. While in the information-gathering stage, Carlos is stepping away from baseball activities to explore the optimal treatment and recovery options, the details of which will be conveyed at the discretion of Carlos and his family. We do not know when Carlos will rejoin the club but expect him back at some point this season. At this time, our primary concern is Carlos’ health and we will respect his wishes to keep this a private matter. We ask everyone to keep Carlos and his family in their thoughts during his challenging time.”
