    It’s a double header. Flaherty and Suter game 1, De Leon and Lindblom for game 2.

    Game 1 is in the early slate. Game 2 is on nothing.

    On a side note, looks like it’s Paddack on the main slate Padres/Giants game now, instead of Lamet.

    Thank you

    Baseball has been weird this year. Many teams that based on my DFS experiences would seem to be having terrible years. Cubs, Indians, Astros, Cardinals. There might be others. They’re all over .500 though and in the thick of it. I realize part of that is because of the expanded seeding, also because of pitching, but geez. Every time I stack those teams they seem to score 1-3 runs and lose handedly. These are teams I have stacked quite often too, and will be again with Cubs, Indians, Astros again tonight.

    Yeah I stacked Cleveland so much the first month and probably haven’t since because I felt so burned. Think I’m going Twins/Astros tonight. Roof is open at Globe Life, if that’s a real thing, and Twins seem to be getting healthy at the right time.

    DK had an early two game slate but Mets/Nationals just got PPD

    Nope.

  • zovyn

    Ugh. The FD slate was 3 games, lost NYM@WAS too early to catch too many people off guard (I thought) but a quick glance shows Scherzer somehow still running at around 25% ownership… Soto as high as 50% and the overlay on the last second contests was too good to ignore. Hope being anal about checking the boards/updates pays off for me today. :)

  • Volkster6

    I’m going Darvish Kershaw and Marlins

    Yep, I’m seeing Scherzer at 35% in some of mine and a lot of the WAS/NYM hitters in the 30% range too.

    DK refunded last 2 game slate, when the 2nd game was PPD right after lock. That’s technically not how their rules work though, so I wouldn’t be surprised either way. Here, they didn’t postpone the game until a while after lock right? Not sure, because I didn’t play it or pay attention. So, this is probably more likely to play out.

  • Sleazygreazy

    PPD announced before lock

    last time they told me it would run despite the PPD

    but then they refunded

    this time they’re again saying it will run

    I got an identical reply to the previous time:

    Today’s Mets-Nationals game has been postponed due to weather. As this game was part of a 2-game slate, and this game was postponed after the slate started, this slate will continue to run per our MLB rules page.

    “If a Game Set includes only one active game but this was not known until after the contest start time then contests for this Game Set will not be canceled.”

  • yisman

    really bad slate because normally you don’t want batters from a shortened game (doubleheader) but the other game had weather risk…

  • JIB7

    Usually hate the $8k range on FD, but liking Bassitt tonight. Strong performances lately, and a good matchup vs. Marines which he handled well earlier in the year.

    Things won’t normalize cause it’s a 60 game season.

    Cleveland often sucks early on then picks it up. Remember it happening maybe 2 years ago. They were terrrible to start than awesome to finish

    On him, too.

  • biga0787

    FanDuel early slate peeps did not get the memo. Soto 34.2% owner Scherzer 30%

    I get it. I was on the bad side of variance with them in the first month. Second month of the season I seemed to hit every stack I chose.

  • BigRay

    here you go from DK TOS:

    If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Game Set including only one active game and this is known before the contest start time then all contests for that Game Set will be canceled and refunded.

    If a Game Set includes only one active game but this was not known until after the contest start time then contests for this Game Set will not be canceled.

    Games are “known” to be canceled or postponed once their status is updated as such by DraftKings’ MLB stats-provider, STATS LLC.

    Example: If a Game Set includes two games at 8pm ET and 10:30pm ET respectively, and the 10:30pm ET game is officially postponed at 6pm ET then all contests for that Game Set are canceled and refunded. If the 10:30pm ET game was not officially postponed until after 8pm ET then contests for that Game Set are not canceled and are played out using only the one active game.

    If canceled or rescheduled games result in a Game Set including zero active games, all contests for that Game Set will be canceled and refunded

  • superjon

    Ended up with 8 pitchers, but the majority of the ownership is on Carrasco, Happ and Mahle

    Main stacks are KC, OAK, CLE, and HOU

    Secondary stacks are CHC, ATL, BOS, NYY and MIN
