    Hate to say it, but…..Coors.

    Weather concerns on the early slate. Maybe just damn the torpedoes?

    P.S. Speaking of “DAMN YOU” the stats are telling me to pick Nick Castellanos again.

    A couple of examples of why for me BVP is real, it is, and it’s predictive…well as predictive as anything can be in such a high variance sport.

    I’m watching the Mets/Yankees game and I’ll take 2 examples.

    Pete Alonso and James McCann both hit lefties pretty well.

    Alonso was 0 for 2 with 2 k’s versus Montgomery
    And McCann was 1-2 with a homer

    Small samples, I know, yet here’s what I saw on their next at bats…

    Alonso flied out and struck out, and clearly doesn’t see Montgomery well. Swings at the first pitch, doesn’t get good contact. Chases high. Montgomery seems to have his number.

    Now McCann struck out twice. However, in the first at bat he roped what would have been a double just foul, and barely missed a homer a pitch or two later which was just foul as well. Yet he’s getting around on him and making hard contact.

    2nd at bat….he struck out again, yet he got called out on a pitch that was clearly low and away, and other than chasing one high fastball, it was clear he sees him well.

    Just thought that was interesting.

    are you guys just auto playing Yu in today’s FD early contests

  • tbird05

    I haven’t seen Rothstein’s tweets about the game

  • FitFantasyGod

    Hey what’s up all, I just wrote an article on how research has diminishing returns if anyone has 5 mins to give it a quick read. If not that’s cool too, let’s win some money on tonight’s MLB slate

  • marker0357

    worried about Philly radar so I bailed on Darvish. Hope it don’t burn me.

  • frugal

    SD/PHI confirmed delay, pitchers not yet warming up and tarp still on field.

    no Darvish for me on FD. I feel DFS’ers just ignore the risk when there’s no apparent pivots. Hopefully he 0’s out or doesn’t pay off his tag tonight at considerable ownership

  • tbird05

    even better Mahle chalk pitching at home. Cubs stacks let’s go

    Only now reading the Roth update. Have the Darv in 3 of 4 afternoon lineups.

    Now for the main slate: Anyone feel good about their pitchers? Clayton Kershaw did put up 26.5 DKFP back on April 11th…but the Nats (and Kyle Schwarber) weren’t hitting back then.

    Schwarber won’t be hitting tonight either. Put on the IL today.

    Doh!

    We err they still have Juan Soto …but he’s 1 for 7 with a home run and 3 strikeouts vs. Kershaw. Guess I’ll have to play Clayton in one or 2 or so.

    Stupid noob question, I haven’t been paying attention to Shohei Ohtani on draftkings…He’s list at $6,100 tonight, but according to the DK game log got 0 FPTS last night…after hitting 2 hrs lol. Does DK only count his pitching stats? Or is it just a bug (or a design decision) and only his pitching stats are used for the game log? I don’t want to spend $6,100 on him tonight for him not to accumulate any points. lol

    Thank you

  • SkateFiend

    The Reaper texted me to say that he’s playing Ohtani today. Stay away from him.

    I guess do my own research? shrug

    relying on the weather page this year has been a disaster

    I used Kershaw, and boom, delay
