    Maaaaan 1b is so tough on DK. Going Thames but Botto should smash. Anyone using Hiura? Thinking of going Alzolay/Yarbrough w Brewers, Reds, and Rays

    I think you can, but if you’re using Rays it’d make more sense to go Lowe over Hiura, other than ownership.

    thanks Panda

    Heyward is smashing right now. He’s also 1-11 vs Williams. WWYD?

    Ignore the BVP and play him if you want to.

  • ASitar

    Reyes is the same price as Heyward. Think I’ll move from Adames to Machado and Heyward to Fanmil. Pillar as my punt.

    I’ll take this a step further…

    Heyward is 1-11, but only 1 SO. So, he’s not so much fooled, he’s making contact and possibly getting bad luck. You can go to baseballsavant.com and see that against Williams he has an avg EV of 74 MPH, not good, but an avg launch angle of 28 degrees, which is actually right in the prime HR spot.

    So, basically what I’m guessing is a lot of fly outs. Those fly outs, in the right time, space, and whatever could be HR’s. Heyward is hitting the ball well right now, as you mentioned. So, I wouldn’t let the BVP override anything.

    Added another to the DK $1, only switching Baez for Machado and Heyward for Reyes. Always like your opinion.

    Omg just saw why the Tx/ LAA game is postponed. RIP Skaggs, too young!

  • hcassidy

    Sorry but here is my thing…..why the hell did the ‘Angels’ even put out a confirmed L/U? If they truly respected Skaggs, he would have been slotted somewhere in the L/U knowing it was going to be PPD., as everything I’m reading it was given the PPD at least 2 hours ago. Yet their L/U has been out for at least 3-4 hours with them already knowing. Disgraceful!!!!

  • madmanjayWV

    Guess I should start throwing something together.

    I still can’t believe ole Tyler Skaggs is gone. Man, the poor Angels have some insane bad luck with pitchers. Sucks not only in real life for his fans and family, but at $7 in AL ONLY LEAGUE with another year of control left it blows as well.

    Glad to see still nothing is wrong with the baseballs for the past couple of years (QUICK READ) = http://www.vegasinsider.com/mlb/story.cfm/story/1974664

    ^ making way too much of an already terrible situation.

    Take off the tinfoil hat.

    Anyone have a handle on the Brewers BP situation tonight? Houser is starting but he is more of an opener. Will they turn to Burnes or Wilkerson after a couple of innings? I want to roster Wilkerson at 4k

    They’re doing Yarborough the rest of the game

    Last year, almost every pitcher got injured. This year, now this happens. That’s crazy. I was supposed to do my rosters this morning and I didn’t have time to. Then when I did about 6-ish, that’s when I saw that the game was postponed. I went to find out why and 4 minutes later they announced his death. I was planning on stacking that game too.

    total letdown spot for Thames. Couldn’t play him in GPPs

    Hopefully my pivot outscores him.

    What?????

    The team released a lineup this afternoon before they found out Skaggs was dead. All they knew was he missed the team bus.

    Lineup released 12:39 PM PDT

    Game postponed 1:54 PM PDT, more than hour later

    I assure you Brad Ausmus didn’t know Skaggs was dead when he submitted his lineup.

  • ASitar

    Well that sucks, my nights done and it’s only 7:30. I have Alzolay in both LUs.

  • jayzee666

    Mahle is the man and another Brew Crew bust is in process.

  • yisman

    yeah I’m done

    keeps happening. Clevinger a few days ago, now Az

    very limited options at pitcher. 4 games, and I wasn’t going to use TB. Yarborough on 3 days rest and it was an extreme hitters’ ump.

    Pretty much came down to Williams, Az, Mahle, and Allen

    wow….surprised to see alzolay 47% owned in DK single entry.

  • ASitar

    The Awesomo podcast guys loved him and with good reason. Bad thing about only doing a couple of LUs. Who’s doing the Showdown??!!??
