    ATL looks like a smash spot but they certainly have been known to crap the bed on days like this.

    in 18 PA’s Blackmon’s BvP is .167 wOBA vs Miley

    should I worry about bad BvP when Blackmon is 1.500 OPS @ home this year?

    I wouldn’t worry since it won’t matter after Story and Arenado homer in their first 2 ABs and send Miley to the showers in the 3rd inning.

    Ryne Stanek is listed as “Conventional” SP, but per TB Mgr, will be usual 1 or 2 innings.

    Pruitt just was called up yesterday & I see no news to the contrary of him being the PLR other than the dK app

    With yar and chir unlikely to pitch much. He should get 3 or 4.

  • BigPod

    Griffin Canning out for Angels. Barria to start

  • ASitar

    DK single bullet: Gray/Means + Reds 2/3/5, 2 Pitt, 1 Grichuk.

    GL tonight

  • wpatrigo

    There is so much risk for implosion today on SPs. There are only three I feel confident in—two being Sale and Buehler.

  • superjon

    Munoz batting lead off tonight. There’s that Cardinals value I was talking about. Looking more and more like a Sale night. Ugh.

  • ASitar

    Too bad Fowler is 40 years old. He’s hit Leake pretty well.

    Yeah, personally having a difficult time with this slate. Should just stop building line ups. Pitching is trash. Finding 2 on DK is tough depending on the build. I really, really don’t like anyone below Duffy, and it’s not like I like Duffy all that much. I just think he’ll do OK and has some upside. I’ve gone as far as talking myself into some Pivetta. I’m using a little bit of Quantrill, but not because I want too. I’m sure I’ll regret it. I’m not going near TB pitchers. Everything I’ve seen leads me to believe Pruitt only sees 3 innings, maybe less, and he’s just not good. I’m basically building mostly around Buehler, Clevinger, Gibson, Archer, and Duffy. I can’t find a reason to possibly think that should go well.

    EDIT: I should specify, pitching as a whole isn’t trash, but relative to the prices on DK it is. Means at 8.4K? Gray at 9.2K? Darvish at 8.6K against a team that doesn’t strike out? I was thinking of actually taking a shot on Fiers, but 8K? Nope.

    Leaving Tampa this morning for Denver. The wife’s uncle is taking us to the Rockies game tonight. Hoping for another score fest.

    There are so so so so many SMASH spots tonight — UGH

    Gonna be a wild one……. tick tock tick tock — guess it’s time to look at stuff and throw something together…

    Anyone taking a flier on the TOR rookie Waguespack?

    If you got SALE u should probably have more of him. Think I’m going 100% FADE on him.

    NOT sure I want to trust Walker vs. the DBAGS, but gonna do it I guess…

  • sneaksox

    Going w/ Pruitt and something called a Waguespack on DK. Certainly makes the bats look good…Edit: actually was able to move up(?) to Quantrill without sacrificing much, but that doesn’t really feel any better.

  • Renodog

    It’s so hooooot in texas tonight, expect a mini-coors game.

  • BigPod

    Ferris Buelher/ Pruitt (hoping for 10-15) on dk cash for me with all the Coors bats I could squeeze in. Ugliest pitching slate I think I’ve ever seen for the size. GL all gonna be a wild one!!

    Pretty much same, though will probably regret no angels/rangers bats.

    Yeah I agree, think Ohtani could go off, looks like he murders the sinker ball

  • ASitar

    Grichuk is the lock of the night at 4% ownership. 22 DK points.

    I agree…. played a few Waino and a few Leake and that is saying it all!

    Pruit only 6% owned. Didn’t feel great about him and feel a lot worse now.

    “After Stanek, Cash said they will take advantage of having a fresh bullpen and mix and match a lot, with Pruitt and Kittredge available for multi-inning stints.”

    I’d figure Pruitt gets 2-3 innings here. He’s $4k though. Play long enough and you’ll take plenty of zeroes at that price. Just hope he doesn’t come in and get shelled during his brief appearance.

    My favorite (cheap) play is Gordon Beckham. He’s been smashing the ball, but doesn’t have the fantasy points to show for it. Tonight may well be the night that he does.

    Cheese convinced me on Crunch Time pointing out that even with 2-3 innings he could pick up the W. Add in a few Ks and not getting shelled and he’s in the winning LU if offense is half as good as expected tonight.

  • Renodog

    Mr. Pappa…Pruitt is 18% in big cash games DK and Sale is 60%, I don’t mind, I faded Sale and played Pruitt, we shall see.
