Bullpen (Phil Backert)
Phil Backert: We have highlighted the Rangers bullpen recently and they once again struggled as they allowed nine earned runs. Over the last week, opponents are batting .304. The Rangers still don’t miss any bats as their swinging strike percentage during this span is 8.9 percent.
I just grabbed Shawn Kelley in seasonal, do you think he’ll be their closer soon?
Vlad Sedler: I think LeClerc has a leash still
Phil Backert: i can see him getting some chances soon, but agree with Vlad that leclerc will still get another chance or two to snap out of his funk
Phil Backert: The Angels relievers logged another five innings on Thursday night and have now pitched 41.2 over the last week. They have allowed the second hardest hit percentage during this span at 46.3 along with seven home runs.
Phil Backert: The Pirates rank dead last in WHIP over the last week at 1.95 and opponents are batting .345 over this span which also ranks dead last. They also are allowing a fly ball percentage of 46 percent. Left-handed hitters are slugging .596 over the last 30 days which yes, ranks dead last.
do you guys think Skaggs is a pitcher we can target against? Royals will be sneaky
Phil Backert: yea not a bad GPP stack with Royals
brasier over barnes? or keep them both…thanks
Phil Backert: If you can hold on to both then thats fine, but brasier is the closer
Hitting (Vlad Sedler)
3b on dk is stacked today imo
Vlad Sedler: Yep it’s absolutely loaded
Nasty weather day today
Vlad Sedler: Yea, going to be keeping a close eye on em
Thoughts on Eickhoff today @Vlad Sedler ?
Vlad Sedler: I know all the high stakes guys bid on him in 15s for this start and he looked decent last time out. I’m sure he’ll be fine tonight if that game plays but I don’t love him long-term
Vlad, should I start Kieboom over Seager next week?
Vlad Sedler: Yea you actually could because LAD scheduled for 4 lefties out of 6 while WAS plays 7. Catch lightning in a bottle. But no don’t think Kieboom will put up better #’s than Seager ROS
I think Seager just needs some time to get back to normal
Vlad Sedler: agreed
Hi Vlad what would be your top 3 plays on fan duel under 3k today ?
Vlad Sedler: Cbottone: Cron, Grichuk, Fletcher stick out
DC how many followers did you lose last night on Twitter? your tweets were amazing!
DraftCheat: haha, like 35 i think. #worthit
who are we pitching today?
DraftCheat: I like Paxton/Bum
At least tell me you’re giving Fried some love…
DraftCheat: a little, he’s been extremely fortunate so far
I hate that I like Eickhoff today
have to like basically any competent RHP against the Marlins
just is what it is, ya know
i feel like mad max has a nice matchup. not afraid of san diego lefties
yeah def good matchup for max
he’s been super unlucky so far, should be back to dominant self
good price too
is rodon the chalk sp2?
DraftCheat: i hope so, great matchup of course, Tigers such ass
hopefully people are looking at those game logs
DraftCheat: yeah I’m not a huge believer
whos starting for Seattle???
DraftCheat: kikuchi for 1 or 2 innings and then rookie Sheffield
hes part of the paxton trade right?
DraftCheat: yes part of paxton trade, sheffield really struggled in minors this year, texas stack in play
Chase Anderson sneaky? or suicide?
believe in mikokas’ last strong start?
DraftCheat: same pitcher he was last year, this year
he’ll have some solid starts but upside limited
is deGrom in play if the weather clears up?
DraftCheat: i really think Bum is the play
i can’t really see playing degrom off that mysterious injury
not with scherzer and pax right there
DraftCheat: some good hitting wind games, NYM, CHIW
DC you going to post any MLB bets today?
DraftCheat: yeah, after this
Hendricks did work against the DBacks last time around. Think he’s more likely to repeat or have a worse outcome with a back-to-back on the road
DraftCheat: Hendricks is such a feel pitcher, very streaky, so I think after a good start he’s more likely to have another good one
fan of Eickhoff tonite??
DraftCheat: yeah i like eickhoff a bit
Might use him in cash
DraftCheat: yeah i don’t hate it at all
Paxton/Eickhoff on DK allows for some solid cash bats
