    Correction – Piscotty

    https://www.sfchronicle.com/athletics/article/Stephen-Piscotty-left-off-A-s-postseason-roster-14483956.php

    yeah I saw that yesterday

    Oakland released their roster yesterday and fantasycruncher projected Piscotty to bat 3rd anyway

    I e-mailed them and they didn’t care.

    Big deal for me because I was making a fantasydraft lineup and there’s no late swap. Thankfully I checked each player.

    Mr Fairchild’s personal imaginary strike-zone will be da Law tonight
    097% k-rate
    111% BB rate
    107% SLG

    more importantly Morton has 12.54 ERA in Fairchild’s personal imaginary strike-zone
    52 PA ( extremely small sample size alert )
    .992 OPS

    • could it be the ump is in for some regression?
    • ump has a blind sport for Morton’s knockout pitch?
    • like, were the games in coors?!?

    Any word on how long the starters are expected to go?
    Any word on the bullpen priority?

    in the NL game we knew the starters were not going to last

    “The Rays seem likely to have starter Tyler Glasnow on the roster and available to work after Charlie Morton or in extra innings.
    The A’s are doing the same with Fiers”

    .https://www.tampabay.com/sports/rays/2019/10/02/rays-face-difficult-lineup-decisions-after-as-tab-left-hander/

    $8k Glasnow 1.30 SiERA last 4 weeks in 12.1 iP
    $6.8k Fiers…. 3.56 SiERA last 2 weeks in 13 iP

  • monarch

    I’ll be shocked if Fiers gets in the game. Glasnow far more likely as he is a weapon for them. As have that in Luzardo and Puk as well.

    concur
    not in this game.

    … but then, I was shocked madMax went 10+ outs since he profiles as a Edwin Jackson-like gas can to lefties lately

  • ASitar

    Thinking of going Chapman at Captain w Manea, Semien + a couple of TB scrubs

  • BigRay

    I think Morton with some Rays bats and work it back with Luzardo and Olson

  • padlock

    semian will ld off hr. then charlie will calm down like most pitchers do after an openin knock.

  • Moneymakers90

    So we playing Chapman at cpt

  • Stangs13

    Maybe I’m wrong but I don’t see luzardo being worth the price.

  • BigRay

    Yep.. just really looked at it and it is better to spend that money elsewhere

  • monarch

    I’m guessing the Rays pitching plan is probably like this.

    Morton-five or six innings

    Glasnow-two possibly three innings? Feels like a good tourney play

    Snell/Yarbrough-possibly a batter/”(player-popup #matt-olson)Matt Olson”:/players/matt-olson-17887 at bats.

    Pagan/”(player-popup #chaz-roe)Chaz Roe”:/players/chaz-roe-15869 also good candidates to get in the game towards the end

    A’s

    Manaea
    Bassit (if needed)
    Puk (situational)
    Luzardo
    Petit (maybe)
    Hendricks

  • telestraightshooter

    Serious stadium shadows @ Oakland alert!

    1st pitch 3 hrs before local sunset
    OBP can drop as low as ~.200 below projected.

    Shadow edge creeps from in front of home plate till it covers batter eye.

  • ASitar

    Can you go Glasnow ©/Morton/Manaea?

    Yep

  • telestraightshooter

    I was slight worried about ground chuck charlies 12.57 era w/ ump…. but if batters are @ severe handicap it wont matter even if the ump shrinks strike zone as i suspect

  • telestraightshooter

    The total may top 7.5, but not in first 5 inn

  • nickbloggerman

    That’s how I see, think more runs will be scored than ppl expect, but pitchers will dominate intially

  • ASitar

    Duffy will be the chilliest guy on the slate at min price batting 5th.

  • Element828

    Can you go 2 starting pitchers and 2 relievers or is just that not good?

  • telestraightshooter

    I’m really downgrading the whole starting pitcher wOBA stat .

    OBA will be hard to come by until in the later innings

  • 866

    Leggo OAK! ⚾️💰

  • monarch

    Not DFS related but the strength of the A’s is their defense. Chapman (3B), Olson (1B), Laureano (CF) are three of the best at their positions.

  • padlock

    so all bats is contrarian cool

  • 866

    WOW Hendriks only 2.7%.. Puk 5.3%. Duffy 42% Canha only 10%!! Semien only 22%. D K $11!
