Hi folks, the Neal Peart of DFS is back. ( Because I am always in odd time ) to break down another interesting slate.
There are some good pitcher plays as well as a bunch of bat stacks.
Let’s get to it :
PHI @ WSH Arrieta vs. Corbin
Both starters are good , and on any other day they may even be a play but there is too much riding on this series and there are better places to put our money. NO PLAY
TB @ NYY TBD vs. Happ
This is a volatile series, I expect there to be runs scored, Happ’s control worries me and you can go ahead and jump in the Encarnacion-mania and stack him, but for me it is NO PLAY
DET @ PIT Norris vs. Keller
Return of Mitch Keller. Until he can prove himself I am staying away .NO PLAY
LAA @TOR Skaggs vs. Stroman
Let’s play TORONTO BATS HERE. Skaggs has a generous 5.00 ERA
HOU @ CIN Verlander vs. DeScalfani
ASTROS BATS in this park seem to be a smart play. VERLANDER is in play here as well.
NYM @ ATL deGrom vs. Teheran
Teheran has been stingy and the Mets don’t tend to give deGrom run support but I am staying away . NO PLAY
CLE@TEX Plesac vs. Sampson
Plesac threw over 100 pitches his last outing. What intrigues me here is that Indians batters have never seen Sampson before and that could result in some interest but for me- NO PLAY
CWS @CHC Nova vs. Hamels
CUBS BATS can be a play here against Nova, especially with a plus 6 ERA. Check the weather first. Being 6-2 with an ERA under 3, HAMELS is a nice pick especially at his price.
BOS @MIN Price vs, Pineda
While Twins bats are intriguing, in addition to Price imploded his last time out, I still won’t have a play in this game. NO PLAY
MIA @ STL Yamamoto vs. Flaherty
CARDS BATS and FLAHERTY is my play here. Yamamoto is fun to watch but he is a Double A pitcher, keep that in mind.
COL@AZ Senzetela vs. Kelly
While I like Kelly after what the Rockies and Padres did in the last series I am a bit scared. Granted, it was at Coors but still, the bats are hot. Ketel Marte is hot, if you want to play him, otherwise- NO PLAY
BAL @OAK Ynoa vs. Anderson
I like A’s BATS at home here. I think Baltimore is always a good “pick on” team, especially with Ynoa’s plus 5 ERA and a shaky pen.
MIL@SD Woodruff vs TBD
I like MIL BATS but again, keep in mind what happened w SD and COL. If you need to, you can play Brewers bats otherwise, NO PLAY
KC@SEA Bailey vs. Kikuchi
Now that Seattle has dealt Encarnacion you may think that there are no bats in Seattle but I think they find a way to plate some against Bailey and his 5.37 ERA. SEA BATS only if you are looking for value.
SF@LAD Anderson vs. Kershaw.
CHALK ALERT LAD BATS and KERSHAW are the play here. Die on this hill until it proves no longer worth dying upon.
