    Okay, I just watched the 4 Scooter dongs… tl;dr = cardinals managers suck for letting that happen (after the 2nd), pitchers and catchers suck for letting that happen.

    Dong #1, “the big one” :
    Catcher Molina targeted the fastball inside but over the plate, Wainwright delivered where it was asked. But bases loaded and a fastball over the plate?! Yes, let’s serve him some velocity he can use in a great location he can hit. In fact, his FAVORITE location according to his heatmap! Great scouting boys.

    Dong #2 :
    Pitcher Gant was called to deliver low and outside. He hung it a little up and ran it inside, a mistake back in toward Scooter’s favorite location. Bad pitch.

    Dong #3 :
    Maybe we should pitch around this guy, he’s got 7rbi and is now hot thanks to us… or let’s get a new pitcher in that wasn’t rung up by Scooter yet, to give him new looks. Nah…
    Pitcher Gant was called again to deliver low and outside. He hung it high up in the zone. Bad pitch again.

    Dong #4 :
    Okay, let’s show respect and intentionally walk this guy, 4HR would be embarrassing. Nah…
    Pitcher Brebbia delivered a pitch in the SAME LOCATION as Dong #3. Why not, he won’t hit the same pitch would he? He’d know we know not to do that so we’ll do just that and trick him. Oops! Dong #4!

    same team that took out c-mart last night and then let the bullpen implode.

    they deserve it.

  • KindGuy

    Renfroe double dong. Dayummmmm

  • Dirt_Lavert

    Scooter

  • Dirt_Lavert

  • bigkino217

    lmao i dont know shit about baseball, but i had a free entry on DK, picked random guys, noticed my 2nd baseman wasn’t playing today, and switched him out for gennett. what dumb luck

    @firepimp said...

    I’ve played scooter 70% of the time when he’s started this year. Just a cheap veteran with some decent matchups and made me room for other guys.

    I don’t play DFS tonight to take a break after losing 400 bucks in winnings slowly. And he goes apeshit lol

    Crazy to think Rendon still had a bigger game against the Mets back in May.

  • KindGuy

    Scherzer gets the win.

    I mean April 30th

    @elementasrat said...

    Scherzer is due for a negative point outing. I have no data to support my claim lol.

    Glad I added that second part

    To recap tonight’s slate:

  • chronoxiong

    Looking at game winning scores and they are all in the 300’s. I had to ask myself, am I looking at a NBA GPP? No, it’s because some prick named Scooter Gennett had to hit 4 fricken dongs in one game. How the hell did the Cardinals continue to pitch to him? Why didn’t they send out a lefty against him after the 2nd or 3rd dong? What gives?

    Anyways, I scored 186.9 which was good enough to win all my cash games and minimum GPP cash. I miss that feeling. I have been doing very well in MLB lately. The only day I sputtered was last Saturday but that’s because I was busy. I guess this is a game of streaks and I’m certainly on one right now.

    Dfs mlb is so frustrating…scored 191 Sunday night and barely broke 100 the last 2 nights..went cute tonight with a orioles and tigers mini stack instead of the mets and mariners stack that i had…but then i didnt even think once about scooter…didnt see him recommended anywhere…but thats dfs for ya….any player can go off on any night….on to tomorrow’s slate with hopefully better luck

    I never can seem to have a good cash day no matter what I did. I had Gennett and Reynolds in the same lineup. I still lost money because it was the cheapest crappiest payout contest in all of DFS with a whopping .70 cent profit.

    Other lineups could not cash despite most of the batters having HRs because of all nights, Paxton burns me. Oh well, it has to turn around some day.

    Tried an interesting experiment yesterday.

    I am a subscriber to the premium content, so I went in and looked at who the experts were picking as “can’t miss” hitters.

    All were in good spots, and my research prior to looking at the experts thoughts concurred, so I locked them all into the LU builder, made twenty LU’s and entered them in the quarter arcade.

    The core was Thames, Conforto, Cruz and J.D. Martinez.

    They failed miserably, netting 30 points total and the LU builder didn’t grab Scooter as a value play, which I found interesting as it chose lots of Darwin Barney, Josh Rutledge and Escobar from KC.

    None of the LU’s cashed, even with getting the pitching correct.
