Bullpen (Phil Backert)
Phil Backert: We have continued to highlight the Tigers bullpen and they struggled again on Thursday as they allowed seven earned runs. Over the last seven days, they have allowed seven home runs. Shane Green has pitched well, but that is about it. Left-handed hitters are slugging .494 this season which is the second worst in baseball. Right-handers are slugging .502 against this unit this season which is third worst. The Tigers take on the Twins this weekend.
Phil Backert: The Pirates are another bullpen we have repeatedly mentioned and they allowed eight earned runs on Thursday. Over the last seven days, they have allowed four home runs and have had to cover 30.2 innings. They rank dead last to left-handed hitters in terms of slugging percentage at .539. To put that in perspective, the previous mentioned Tigers are next at .494.
Phil Backert: The Padres were idle on Thursday, but it should be noted they head to Colorado to face the Rockies and over the last 20 innings for the bullpen, opponents have a hard hit percentage of 57.8 percent. That easily ranks last. The next closest team is the Dodgers with a hard hit percentage of 52 percent.
DraftCheat: Pitching is crazy tonight
Opto on Marquez, gonna be a fun day
DraftCheat: oh baby, I’m ranking him 3rd today and it pains me
Marquez breaking the Coors curse tonight? Odorizzi
DraftCheat: “He can’t pitch in Coors” is such BS. Can’t hate on the Odorizzi play even if I’m not totally bought in myself
What are you thinking ownership will be on Marquez tonight?
DraftCheat: fairly low with so many good options, maybe 10% FD 15% DK?
I think that’s the route I’m going in GPP thinking people are actually going to be on Padres tonight.
DraftCheat: outside of Coors, perfect matchup for him
Toronto stacks against Covey? Even though Toronto’s bats have been bad
DraftCheat: always lol, can’t go wrong taking hitters against covey
I started a lineup with Wheeler/Odorizzi you like DC? Or we need to save on a pitcher to get better bats
DraftCheat: not my two favorite but yeah they have incredible matchup
you off the Musgrove train for a bit?
DraftCheat: maybe, discouraging stuff for sure
You don’t have interest in Cahill?
DraftCheat: nah, cahill dead to me, need to see something from him first
Saw opto spitting out some Homer Bailey
DraftCheat: yeah i’m looking into Bailey as we speak. man he gives up a lot of hard contact tho, scary
I’m a big Rays fan, you like Glasnow tonight???
DraftCheat: have glasnow #2
Or any Rays bats against German? I know that’s your boy
DraftCheat: nah not on Rays bats
