    .

    .

    $ 10k Woodruff (opening pitcher) 2- 3 innings

    • did not have command of some pitches last 3 starts.

    RP’s listed as SP
    $9.8k Suter
    $9.2k Nelson
    $8.6k Pomeranz
    $7.4k Hudson

    probable PLR’s – 4 innings max?

    properly priced RPs @ $3k

    If I was playing volume I’d be looking at Brewers in the CPT spot for the random solo shot off Max early then run it back with Nats bats.

    Got a good feeling about Gomes and Robles

    The REAPER had to buy a new batch of sickles because the old ones got too dull with the carnage I have been laying down in MLB and NFL this year!!
    Don’t worry though, he will be more than ready for the playoffs and rest of NFL!!

    Not much to discuss, at least here on the MLB forum, Tar. Rolling out top of the Nats order minus Eaton, add a Howie and a Brew Crew scrub.

    25 man Brewers roster released: https://twitter.com/Brewers/status/1179046307392032768

    Think you can definitely take a shot on pinch hitters, at least for the Crew. I know Braun and Cain were hobbled last time I checked but we’ll see.

    Cleaned up @ sportsbook on Sunday!
    took 6 of 6 home dogs & then parlayed it in tiers to bank

    All the ML’s were adjusted for normal pitcher metrics,,, like Clevenger’s indians were -200… on road

    Last game fan appreciation day is kinda like homecoming – home team actually care while road team is checking flight time, or saving pen for playoffs
    Brewers…cough

    Hader and Doolittle are some nice salary relief at 3k

    Is there really a 75% chance he doesn’t clear 3+ innings? I think they are going to want to give him a chance to go more than that. If they really had such little confidence in him, wouldn’t they have started Stras?

    That seems like a careless and meritless post. He’ll go 9 if he’s pitching well, at least 6

    IF he’s pitching well, then, well, I concur.

    You’re talking about him like he’s some scrub. It’s Max Scherzer and it’s the playoffs. You’re gonna stick by 75% chance of less than 10 outs? GTFOH

    I read some where that upon catching wind of the whim of another SP…
    … madMax picked up a lead pipe and slowly approached coach dave with a maniacal leer….

    .

    Seriously though, have you seen madMax’s splits v Lefties since returning from IR?

    madMad is 1st ballot HOF
    madMax ain’t right v Lefties since returning

    tweaked tendons (or whatever last 5 weeks) cannot be willed into working if …its…not…working.

    Fair enough, I guess I’ll have to agree to disagree with you on that take.
    Probably a little easier to make those takes when you’re playing .25 tournaments which may also factor into our disconnect. If I was playing for .25 I would probably be taking some outlandish gambles too.

  • monarch

    I’ve read where the expectation is the Nats go Scherzer, Stras, Corbin, Hudson and if up Doolittle in that order

  • monarch

    The best time to get to the Nats tonight is probably the first inning or last inning

    I totally agree with what you are saying. It is the playoffs, and anything can happen. Remember last year Brewers vs Dodgers when I think it was Gio who got pulled after 1 batter and that was the plan all along they were just able to keep quiet about it?

    Serious question, if you think there is a 75% chance of Schezer not recording 10 outs, are you willing to take action on: Scherzer outs recorded Over 9.5 at +300? Willing to bet up to a grand if it is escrowed by anyone except Seth Yates.

    we agree to disagree.

    my take is only driven by numbers – like buying more Bucs who were sporting a 21 pt lead whilst being only -120 on the in game (!)

    stupid rams fans were turned into sheep by that -9 line

    yep, assuming the under is -250, walk away with $1,400

    Actually, I would wait for the in-game # to see how he fares against a couple of lefties
    ;)

    That sounds like a fun Sunday evening for you.

    I’m happy to debate/discuss this further with you because I think there is certainly an edge to be had by fading Scherzer. Let’s say, theoretically, if you had 3 entries in the $333 showdown today with 170 total entries. What would your exposure to Scherzer be?
