Hopefully you have read my “10 Definitely Interesting, Possibly Helpful MLB Notes” series (posted on Mondays, Thursdays, Saturdays, and Sundays), but if you haven’t, you can find it here.
RotoGrinders approached me and wanted to do a fun contest with the community based off my articles.
The contest works like this:
Find a cool/interesting stat or nugget of information that applies to Friday’s MLB slate and post it in this thread. The deeper and more advanced the stat the better. I will then read through all the forum posts and select the most interesting post, and that person will get $50 in Fantasy Cash added to their FantasyDraft account (If you do not have a FantasyDraft account, you can sign up HERE)
1. Only one post per person.
2. Stat/nugget needs to include a player playing on that day’s main slate and should be focused on DFS relevant research.
3. Post needs to be submitted in the thread BEFORE the main slate locks.
I’ll get it started: In six career starts against the Blue Jays since 2012, Joe Kelly has posted a 6.96 ERA and 1.53 K/BB ratio. That’s the highest ERA and the lowest K/BB of any player (minimum 6 games started) against the Blue Jays during that span.
Let’s have fun with this and see what awesome bits of information we can find!
We have a winner! There were TONS of great stats in the forum, so it was a tough choice. KidTycoon’s breakdown of the recent history of Miami and Atlanta hitting the over in the projected run total in their games was not only useful for tonight’s slate, but is something to consider in games between these two moving forward. Great job, guys! Check back tomorrow morning for a new “10 Notes” article for Saturday’s slate.
