    Twins are gonna rock Keller tonight.

    Ohtani bday vs a struggling Verlander

    Right back to the Jansen well. Not expecting 40+ again, but he’s only 2400 and gets Bundy and the worst bullpen in the league. As close to a free square as you can get.

    Pitching is a little tougher. High side maybe Degrom, and then down in the mid range you’ve got Eduardo, Tanaka and Anderson.

    Jansen $3k on DK, still a free square

    Sorry I was thinking of Rendon being in a good spot.

    Still like the Twins though

    Tanaka owns the Rays and they are banged up

    So a Twins/Was stack looks good?

  • ASitar

    Gotta play Jansen again at that price. Thinking of going DeGroom/Pom or E-Rod. Whatcha think about McKay? Is Longoria getting too expensive at $3,800? Devers, Rendon and Sano are the only other guys I like at 3B. Kinda liking a Reyes/Machado/Hosmer stack.

    Going for the Homerun Hunter achievement. Got 3 days and 5 teams to go.
    All 5 teams I need are playing..literally going up and down the order playing 8 or 9 hitters from each in dime time…and hoping I get there tonight. 🍀🤞

    Side note…stop with the you have to play Danny Jansen nonsense. You don’t HAVE to play anyone. He’s a fine play though. I’ll have some. Yet this guy isnt free anymore, 3k on DK is above Gimme pricing for a catcher. Plus your talking about raised ownership on the most volatile position in the most variant (maybe tied with NHL) sport. Again, don’t get me wrong, he’s a good play, yet there are plenty of reasons to use some pivots as well.

    I’m gonna pay up for Vazquez in a few as well.

    I mean he IS 12-26 his L7 games with 6 HRs and his price went down $100 on DK. Only doing 2 LUs and the only way he’s not in both (like he was yesterday) is if he’s not starting.

    I get it if you’re only making 1 lineup. It’s probably the right move. Anymore I’d mix it up a bit. You’re talking about the most volatile position (catcher) in the most volatile sport (mlb). Makes sense to pivot in some if his ownership is going to be elevated.

    I thought I finished the HR Hunter achievement(the other day) only to find out I’m missing 1 team. That 1 team believe it or not is the Rockies, so tonight even though against Greinke I will be doing Rockies 1-8.

    I only have Miami left. Accidentally left out Rojas yesterday (stacked 2-8 across multiple $.10 lineups) and of course he hits his first HR of the year in the leadoff spot in the first inning…can Miami even hit a HR? They’re in Atlanta so maybe Granderson/Walker/Riddle will get a hold of one of Teheran…

    Look at the RHB as well those that like the ball low and inside, Teheran is giving up a BA north of .400 in that zone. If Alfaro is Catching I would take a hard look at him, his exit velocity is at 99.3 in that zone, but also has 4 other zones that is north of 100 and 3 other zones north of 90.

    Need the Rockies also…thought I would have got there with the 14.5 total game, that ended 4-2..haha.

    Yeah I’m stacking all hitters from the 5 teams I need, did 10 entries in dime time. Rockies, Seattle, Arizona, Baltimore, Cards.

    O’s might be the attack’s to win it but I don’t have the 🥥 to stack them. I like a couple of Twins and Mets too. Tonight will be tough, so many good spots and some warm weather

    Jays, A’s, Giants, Diamondbacks…I think. I’m really just trying to avoid the chalk tonight. Not making very many line ups so I’m just going off the board a little. Might not even mess with the Jays or A’s, because I think they’ll be fairly popular, at least the obvious names like a Khris Davis.

    Yeah, I’m just talking to myself, but might just fade the Jays too. Them and the O’s are going to be way heavier owned then they usually are. I really don’t like playing average to awful offenses when they’re chalk. No matter who is pitching.

    I really like Marcus Semien though.

  • wpatrigo

    I’ve loving the Red Sox today. How far down are you all going on the SPs for your #2 guy? I’m finding lots of Pomeranz in my lineups.

    Same. I can’t say I’ll have zero Teheran, but if he fits I wouldn’t avoid him. Everything below him if a pure dart throw I think.

    I liked Martin Perez at a 1100 higher price, but the chance at delay could scare me off him in the next hour.

    I have a tendency to look at these slates before I do any sort of research and think “if I had 0 players left and was holding onto a lead, which stack would I be most afraid of seeing my opponent have?” and the Red Sox facing an AAA lefty with a brutal bullpen would rank pretty highly on my heartburn factor.
