    Admin Note: The mod team is working to keep these daily threads more on topic – MLB strategy talk for today’s games. Post referring to yesterdays games will be moved to yesterdays MLB thread. Any off topic posts or posts containing full lineups will be deleted. Please make it a point to say if you’re talking about Cash or GPP options.

    Admin Note 2: Today we will be rolling out some new promotions for viewers of our GrindersLive shows. We are calling them “Flash Freerolls” & “ Golden Scrolls”. Flash Freerolls are just like they sound. At some point during the programming we will link to a free roll contest within our chat which will be exclusive for viewers and not advertised any other place on the site.

    Caught a lucky break last night with the Twins game getting postponed. Right around 40% of people in all my cash games had Dozier. Him dropping to 0 helped me cash.

    Onto the afternoon slate. In cash everyone is going to be on Thor but there is no reason to not be. There are a good amount of high team run totals today. Which teams/players do you guys like as safe/high floor, cash game options today?

  • Jaredmlevitt

    My early research really likes Bettis. The matchup isn’t very good against a hot Rangers team, but his #‘s the past 30 days are great. Over the past 30 days his hard-soft is 1% which is phenomenal, 3rd lowest xfip of the starters going this afternoon. I know the matchup is poor, but it’s actually an upgrade in park advantage for him. Do I need to be talked off the ledge on this one? GPP only obviously.

    Man, the Orioles shit the bed last night

  • thedkexperience

    Sticking to short slates since making my return to DFS last week has worked wonders for me. 39-17 in H2Hs this week. Yesterday I got 3rd and 7th in 2 GPPs with 5 total cashes.

    Quick look back …

    - Was I the only person who decided the Astros game was a 100% fade with the looming weather? There was a lot of yellow and red on that Rotogrinders preview.

    - I’m getting more and more convinced that stacks win H2Hs. Brewers and Rangers did well for me on my single bullet.

    - It’s amazing how much better I do when my “research” is done in the same amount of time it takes to eat a burrito. I understand all of the advanced stats and have used them (unsuccessfully) in the past. It’s amazing how much better I do when I keep it simple.

    Only using Thor and Tallion early. 2B is tough, I’m taking Neil Walker. Moreland will be my guy in my 3 LUs at 1B. Stating the obvious, but I like LeMahieu, Arenado, Blackmon, Lecroy, Beltre, Dahl. Anyone like Conforto? He’s the one’ll OF in his price range I can see getting 5X value.

  • Sizmik

    Everyone shit the bed. MLB has been crazy this year.

  • HParker

    What do you guys think about Taillon for the early slate? I like the match up but there’s rain possible so kind of risky.

  • IronMonkey415

    That looks like a better pick then my pick of Garza against the Braves.

  • Storm

    So A-Rod is going to start tonight against Eduardo Rodriguez. I’m guessing his ownership in the Moonshot will be in the 15-20% range.

  • walkoff9

    Is it crazy to not play noah and tallion in the early slate?

    My gut is telling me to go with noah and tillman instead.

    I was on Tallion and switched to Tillman. I don’t know why I did it

    I’m wanting a BAL stack on this early slate…

  • walkoff9

    Do the pirates know they have a game today?

  • tippycat

    I don’t think they realize they had a game last night either.

  • jonconnington

    I wonder how much lower owned the COL/TEX game will be in GPP if no lineup comes out before lock?

  • JupiterBrando

    i’m stacking top of the DBacks order for the early slate. similar idea to the Marlins/Giants game a few days ago where no one is going to do it, but Syndergaard has had a ton of trouble closing guys out lately due to his elbow issues which brings his pitch count up a ton. plus, he’s the easiest guy in the league to steal on, regardless of if it’s d’Arnaud or Rivera behind the plate

  • Boneys2000

    I get so fired up at the start of the day.Than after about an hour I realize I still can’t quit my job.Lets hope someone wins big!

  • BmoreClutch

    The only issue with Taillon is he’s capped at 6 innings. Limits his upside a little bit, but I think he’s a much safer cash play than Tillman.

  • Lathum

    Going with Villar over Machado. I suspect this will bite me.

  • TJF74

    If he’s in the lineup today, it’s Jung Ho Kang bobblehead day. He’s been in a massive slump, so expect a big game.

    Bobble head!!!! He’s going in my lineup for sure

  • TheRyanFlaherty

    Someone let Pittsburgh know they have a game in less than 45 minutes.
