    Fun little 4 game early slate.

    Looking at the overall pricing on FD, and the highest priced players are 4200. No reason not to take one of Castillo or Greinke. Leaning towards Greinke just because of how well he’s played against the Yanks and how bad they are hitting right now. But you could definitely make an argument for Castillo as well.

    Also looks like there might be some weather to keep an eye on, but I think all 4 games play out.

  • BigPod

    Anyone else not been paid by dk from early slate yesterday? Mine still shows live, but I have been paid monies and tickets from the late slate last night. Weird

  • miamimike

    Yes I haven’t been paid from main slate. Was paid for wnba though.

  • CJtheGrump

    According to ESPN’s Park Factors table for 2019, guess which stadium is dead last in terms of runs scored and near the bottom in terms of home runs…

    I wonder why that is, but I did not expect it.

  • miamimike

    I would guess marlins or seattle.

  • miamimike

    Oh sorry, you said 2019. Miami or Detroit ???

  • miamimike

    Ah, Yankees and orioles. Yeah, crazy.

  • CJtheGrump

    Yankees.

    It really shocked me. I’m still not exactly sure how they come up with the numbers but their park factor for runs is 0.738 (30/30) and 0.828 for Home Runs (23/30).

  • miamimike

    Not orioles, oracle stadium. But Yankees is crazy stat.

  • miamimike

    Yeah they have been under performing a lot lately in good spots. And stanton being out hurts.

    There’s a formula at the bottom of the table (duh- silly me).

    Looks like just the home team’s performance is factored in, which would mean the Yankees tend to score more runs on the road than they do at home.

    But Yankee Stadium tends to be considered a very hitter-friendly venue.

    OK. This has taken me longer than it should, but it is a measure of total runs at a stadium.

    So I guess the reason you’d see lower numbers for the Yankees might be a function of their pitching. I do know their bullpen is considered very strong.

    WNBA?! But whyyyyy?

  • miamimike

    @sleazy. Don’t know why. Maybe email them.

  • miamimike

    I emailed them. Am awaiting a response.

  • jsteele1020

    DK said on Twitter they were waiting for a box score provider to send the stats, then they will pay. It shouldn’t be long. I won $300, my best win yet and of course it’s delayed lol

  • jsteele1020

    oh and Go Dolphins, such as they are!

  • miamimike

    Yeah I have been suffering a lot of years since Marino retired. We will see. They just fired their ol coach.

  • jsteele1020

    Money just went in

  • lovpink

  • BigRay

    Castillo is a large Favorite the pirates have the lowest implied total on the early slate.The reds have the Highest total and al lot of cheap bats.I’d lock him in in cash games for sure as captain.

  • 7klub06

    Thoughts on Pitchers for the early slate?

    Greinke, Tanaka, Castillo are the only ones that worth looking at

    4 with Greinke – 2 have Pirates stacks, 1 has no Pirates and the other just has Marte

    2 with Castillo – Both have Yankees stacks
