    Game stack of the day is Milwaukee vs Arizona. Pitching duel of the day J. Odorizzi vs C. Bassitt. Highest scoring team today NYY. Trashcan team that will break tonight’s slate Chi Whitesox.

    Kyle Freeland salary today should be 0.

    I wouldn’t use last year’s Freeland in this spot let alone the mess he is this year.

    There is a lot of bad luck involved with him this year. Yes, even his xFIP is bad, but it’s still 2 runs lower than his ERA and even then there is improvement coming. It’s happening. His velocity was down and is back up. The Yankees are grossly overrated against LHP.

    He was a Cy Young candidate last year. If he was 4.9K against anybody last year you should play him. His last 3 starts where he has bottomed out have all been in Coors.

    Let me circle back for a second.

    1). I legit think Freeland is an option on this slate on DK. I certainly will be way underweight on what I’m guessing will be an overload of chalk Yankees (guessing most will easily be 20% owned), while being overweight on Freeland who I’m guessing will be sub-5% owned.

    2). I will not invest heavily in Freeland though, as Lyles is only $700 more and Mahle is only 1.1K more and both are in a better position to pay off.

    The Yankees offense has been on fire I don’t think they will slow down anytime soon

    You got me by the sack bro I have no choice but to copy you, your either crazy or a mad genius

  • mr_papageorgio

    I haven’t looked at much yet today but I don’t mind the Freeland play. Happ is probably in play too at his price.

    I don’t know about using Freeland, yet I don’t hate the idea of being underweight Yankee stacks. I’ll probably be even with the field maybe slightly above on the Yankees, and it’s not because of Freeland, it’s because of the weather. Freeland is actually decent on the road, and the Yanks hit righties much harder than lefties.

    However…..it’s gonna be HOT and HUMID in da Bronx with the winds blowing out to left. Not good for any pitcher.

    Edit…if the conditions were more pitcher friendly, wind blowing in, cold, pitchers ump, I’d give Freeland a go. Yet not today..maybe he does well, yet I’m not going there 🤷‍♂️

    At first glance…. not even a look

    1) I am glad the Cubs/Padres lefty duel with winds blowing out isn’t on the slate
    2) Zimmermann is pitching. Enough said…
    3) On a full slate value will/should open up and Bieber/DeGrom/Ryu are in great spots. Since any 5’2 SS can hit a pop up over the fence, will have some lineups that pay up for pitching.

    Do you do better on larger slates or 6 or 7 game slates?

  • RatedDAL

    To Freeland’s credit he did actually pitch well at Fenway earlier this year in a similar looking spot. I think that was in April though.

  • Stangs13

    I might be crazy but I think I’m going with Minor today with the crazy turn around the Astros have.

    Doesn’t matter. I prefer smaller just because it’s more concentrated, and less to worry about and so on. I still do well on large slates too.

    Give me 2 pitchers and a lineup to comfortably cash

  • Sleazygreazy

    Thoughts on Happ? Trying to talk myself into it because slumping Rockies on the road. Just not seeing a lot of gpp winning upside

    Padres and Cubs, do I dare stack early slate and hope cubs smash out over left field? Hmmm

  • CJtheGrump

    I was disappointed to see Scooter pulled early yesterday. He’s incredibly cheap today too. When there are so many aces, I’m looking for relief anywhere. What’s the deal on Scooter though? Is he commonly subbed out halfway through games?
