    Hate 15 game slates

  • zovyn

    I know that bitchin about FD is preaching to the choir here, but it never ceases to amaze me how dumb their contest slate structure can be sometimes. 2 full roster slates today – a 13-game slate at 7:05pm, and a 2-game slate at 10:10pm. So irritating. Could easily do a sexy 6-gamer at 8:10pm. Silly.

    Eloy Jimenez was 30.6% owned yesterday, therefore he will be 61.2% owned tonight. If I have my Wie-metrics properly calibrated.

    I’m sure Griffin Jax (whatever is that?) is a fine fellow, but I’ll be over the imaginary field.

    Whats that mean, over the imaginary field?

    I’m imagining a field with Jimenez 61.2% owned. I don’t have access to any actual ownership numbers.

    Yeah – as noted, he was 55%+ already yesterday on FD

  • ifthethunder

    In other news, Roth is somewhat worried about Oakland – Cleveland. If he’s worried, I’m worried.

    Brad Miller has 3HRs in 14AB against Mad Max. And at 2.2k on FD he still doesn’t really feel like a lock-and-load tonight, ya know?

    Hmmm.

    Most of the BvP tonight seems to favor the pitchers…

    Yep. I’m a big Mad Max fan, sad he’s a Dodger now. (sob sob S.O.B.!).

    Don’t massively disagree with Sloan Piva’s ‘bet the Dodgers’ take.

    But, however, and therefore…checking Dodgers BvP re: Nola: Nola comes out pretty well.

    I like that, since it means I can pick a different pitcher I like and than combine him with Max / Aaron Nola for 2 lineups. If all goes as planned, one of those l.u.s will be double dubs with some pretty high pitching DKFP.

    Joc Pederson is 0 for 10 vs Sonny Gray with 7 strike outs. Impressive, young Jedi!

    Half my original LU were Tigers, Orioles, or Mets, it seems. Pulled all shares due to weather concerns.

    My entire evening now revolves around Anthony Alford. LFG! :P

  • yisman

    trying to figure out what to do with catcher

    Angels’ lineup finally came out right after lock. Stassi batting 7th. I have him in DK cash.

    I would’ve used Murphy but can’t do that now.

  • zovyn

    I had Soto in my LU all day with the DTD tag. They decide he’s going to play and THAT’s when I decide to bench him.

    I have Hoy Park in a Scherzer – Gilbert lineup and a Nola – Gilbert lineup. So far, Nola is winning.

    Looks like a good hour plus delay in Philly

  • land_of_the_lock

    Are pitchers in PHI/LOS done? Didn’t expect that from a “Green/Yellow” game. Ugh, if so.

    I would bet they do not come back, but you never know. Could it get a ppd still? Maybe

    Well, that is like the only game not affected by weather it seems

  • land_of_the_lock

    Well, since I played them heavily, hoping for no PPD. Just seems off, the prediction. I guess I need to do more due diligence on these games. Sigh.

    Models gave no indication of bad weather. This was one of those summer pop ups that just…happened.

    Check the radar here on this one:

    OK, I’m just going to discount future weather predictions somewhat. Not blaming anyone, just readjusting how I read the predictions.

    For what it’s worth, I find Roth’s guidance to lead to the right conclusion nine times out of ten.

    Thanks for the feedback. I agree, over the long-tern, he’s generally been spot on. I’m really not trying to be a hater, but I’ve been burnt more than a few times, recently. I play a lot of 50/50s. I don’t mind getting burned on the GPPs, but I’m going to be more conservative on the double-ups going forward. To each his own…
