Bullpen (Phil Backert)
Phil Backert: Over their last 20 innings pitched, the Blue Jays bullpen has allowed a hard hit percentage of 50, a fly ball percentage of 49.1 which ranks dead last and four home runs. Their xFIP during this stretch is 5.79.
Phil Backert: Over their last 19.2 innings, the Tigers are struggling as they have an ERA of 10.07 and opponents have an eye popping .375 batting average against them to go along with five home runs.
Phil Backert: The Athletics bullpen allowed two earned runs on Monday night and now have a 5.85 ERA over their last 20 innings including four home runs. They have allowed a 45.9 hard hit percentage over the last week which is 29th in baseball.
Phil Backert: The Giants have had to cover 14 innings over the last three days. Left-handed hitters are batting .289 against the unit this season which ranks dead last.
Is Felix still the king?…at least for tonight.
DraftCheat: i’m in, top bats are good today so need to save at SP if possible. Felix and Alcantara for me.
Any trust in Canning?
DraftCheat: yeah, i like him
DC is Bauer too expensive? It’s hard to not lock him in, Or is he gonna he chalk
DraftCheat: definitely not too expensive, but yes I would assume Bauer is some heavy heavy chalk
how do you really determine if each slate is more of a cash slate or gpp slate?
DraftCheat: Basically if the plays I think are the best plays are going to be highly owned, that’s a cash slate. If the guys I really like are low owned, GPP slate
DraftCheat: really hoping Yelich sits
If yeli is out Marquez as a PP$ play on par with Bauer
DraftCheat: still behind bauer
So there’s an arguement to fading Bauer in gpps. I’m struggling to find anyone outside of alcantra that i like as i go lower
DraftCheat: yeah felix and alcantara down there for me
if you could pick 1 starting pitcher today who’s going to get absolutely smacked around in the early innings…
DraftCheat: a lot of candidates for that. i think Texas gonna go off tho
both sides of Nats/Cardinals looks juicy
He was so tilting early but man was he good. Maeda getting pulled at like 73 pitches ruined a potential big night
DraftCheat: yeah that was weird
Hitting (Vlad Sedler)
Vlad Sedler: SEA/CHC stack isn’t a bad idea. Won’t be highly owned.
Vlad Sedler: Think they’ll play in TEX, might be sloppy
Vlad Sedler: I like Reds 1,3,5,6
BOS best full stack
ARI top 3
STL middle of lineup
You probably do not want to go all-in Alcantara
STL over WAS
Prefer STL to WAS tonight
still like PIT
Kevin Roth says texas a little too risky for cash
Vlad Sedler: GPP only
You can go down to Velasquez, Buehler, Greinke. Greinke/Buehler are the sneaky ones.
Vlad Sedler: Braden Bishop $2600 punt OF on DK for SEA
