Welcome back to the daily DraftKings picks where we try to get super rich playing daily fantasy baseball. As usual I’ll do a brief recap of my lineups from the night before then throw out some picks that I’m brainstorming for tonight, and hopefully get some good feedback/tips/picks from you guys either in the comment section or on Twitter @kmarkobarstool.
Not a bad night.
Little bit of cash, and more importantly, hooked everybody up with some good blog picks as Trout and Freese went off. And in case you want to know what my life is like, I still had someone on Twitter bitching me out saying that I screwed him with Duda…after putting up 2 other picks that put up 47 points.
Only a few more nights to do baseball picks so let’s make the most of it and cash out tonight.
–Strasburg is hands down the best pitching option going tonight and would be an absolute lock in my lineups…but that damn weather is messing with us again. Last forecast I checked seem a little too risky to roster him…
–Jose Fernandez is the only other ace, and I’m not sold on him – after he struggled last time out, and with a gut feeling they’ll be giving him a VERY quick hook to keep his arm healthy, might have to stay away from him.
-That leaves us with a bunch of middle tier options – I like Odorizzi, Corbin and Duffey with a bunch of upside.
-They refuse to raise the price on my boy Rich Hill. Think he can keep rolling tonight? I really don’t know – the Yankees have one of the highest team totals on the board and Vegas is expecting him to get rocked. I don’t know though, I watched his last game, and his stuff was lights out. Might be worth it to take the risk just based on price alone.
OF Mookie Betts $4.8K
I’d love to just plug in Trout here again and call it a day, but even I’m getting bored with blogging about him. Also considering he was over 50% owned last night, let’s switch it up a little bit. Mookie has been EN FUEGO, the Sox have been CRUSHING Yankee pitching, and they’re trotting CC out there tonight – has all the making of another offensive explosion. Little bit of bad news is a strong wind blowing in so keep an eye on that if you’re one of those “weather” people.
3B Adrian Beltre $4.5K
Beltre is hot, the Rangers are hot, these games actually mean something – check check check. Oh and Beltre gets a lefty. He does pretty well against those. Beltre was on my shit list for most of the season (guys I refuse to roster because I can never pick them on the right nights), but considering the matchup tonight I think I’ll make an end of season exception.
VALUE PLAY OF
David Peralta $3.7K
I don’t know what Peralta did to offend DraftKings but they refuse to raise his price, ever. He’s got 3 straight games in double digits and hits in a great spot in the order against some shitty Rockies pitching tonight. Oh and his team is ranked the #1 offense to target – Goldy and Pollock are great options, but I’ll take a 2K discount and use Peralta and call it a day.
That’s it for me, hit me up @kmarkobarstool with your plays of the night. Maybe help me out getting a good hitter in my lineup, that would be nice. Also if you enjoy the blogs and are depositing tonight use my referral code, we’ll both get hooked up with a free ticket.
