Bullpen (Phil Backert)
Phil Backert: The Tigers continue to check every box when trying to figure out what bullpen to target. They have pitched a lot of innings as they have had to cover 30 over the last seven days. They give up a lot of home runs as they have allowed nine in this span. They also don’t miss any bats as they have induced a swinging strike percentage of only 8.9 percent in the last seven days. Left-handed hitters and right-handed hitters are both slugging over .486 as well. They are just plain bad.
Phil Backert: The Rangers bullpen once again allowed multiple runs as they gave up three on Tuesday night. They had to cover 6.1 innings and only struck out two. They simply do not miss any bats and this has led to a hard contact percentage of 44.4 percent over the last seven days.
Phil Backert: Over the last seven days, the Braves bullpen has allowed a hard contact percentage of 47.8 percent which has led to five home runs and an opponents batting average of .321.
Phil Backert: The Pirates bullpen has allowed a hard hit percentage of 48.1 percent over the last seven days which has led to four home runs. For the season, left-handed hitters are slugging .505 against the unit.
DC all in Marquez tonight?
DraftCheat: what do you think
id Say yes
DraftCheat: smart man
just gotta outduel verlander vs the tigers
no big deal to german marquez
Beeks looks like the primary pay down option but he’s not even that cheap yes astros huge chalk and should be
Yeah that’s what my concern is. Chalk and he’s not super cheap
DraftCheat: and he’s not like a slam dunk option either
Could it be a stanek night DC?
DraftCheat: yes Stanek is in play
Do you think Stanek outscores Urena though?
DraftCheat: slight edge Urena, but Urena will be WAY higher owned
DraftCheat: Hader hasn’t pitched in 3 days…
whats the likelihood jorge lopez outscores urena
DraftCheat: I’m not using Lopez here
Hate a weak righty against that Texas LU
DraftCheat: yep, Gallo seems like a certain dong
does it make more sense to find a low owned pivot to urena and stack astros or try to pair verlander/marquez and fade astros chalk?
terrifying fade but its baseball
DraftCheat: both approaches are good, marquez gotta have low ownership
What’s the deal with wacha? Is he just real bad
DraftCheat: wacha sucks yeah
DraftCheat: Braves are intriguing
DraftCheat: verlander will be mega chalk
I like Soroka. kinda scary matchup but mostly RHB. he can get it done
my list is verlander, marquez, maeda, soroka
i’m not gonna use beeks at that price point and likely heavy ownership. minor could do it for sure, i’ve been wrong about him, no doubt
building on DK right now for tonight
and man you are really sacrificing bats if you don’t go cheap at SP
DraftCheat: if JBJ takes Marquez deep i’m jumping off the top of a rockie mountain
DraftCheat: just go all the way in lol
Honestly DC that lineup has me a little juiced
DraftCheat: bash your way to the top!
Hader has fucked me 2 weeks in a row…THEY ARE NOT USING HIS ASS
i mean they’ll use hader if the situation calls for it
but yeah 35% chance you get a zero. Gio very unlikely to go deep
Honestly a 0 could be better than about 4-5 guys on this slate
DraftCheat: yeah, could still easily cash taht lineup with a zero
Hitting (Vlad Sedler)
Vlad, who is your SP2 on DK (assuming Verlander is your SP1)?
Vlad Sedler: Playing around with it now. Hard to build what I like with Beeks so am entertaining the idea of Urena scarily enough
Vlad Sedler: Jorge Lopez has a trend now of gem-drubbing-gem-drubbing so now a gem? lol I can’t do it though
tyler white in play vlad? been hitting like crap but wondering if you’ve seen anything
Vlad Sedler: He’s really bad now. Needs to be demoted.
Current DK Cash: Verlander/Beeks/Maldonado/Diaz/Hiura/Carpenter/Correa/Springer/Mazara/Taylor
Vlad Sedler: Looks good, pretty solid. Got that HOU exposure which is good. I may go Bemboom full punt myself.
Vlad you think Hiura will hit for power in the bigs? I know he can hit but does he have the power?
Vlad Sedler: I just wrote up Hiura on FG if you have that sub. I like him the best of the 4 hitters called up. He’ll hit for some power but not a crazy amount of it. That parks helps though.
Wilson Ramos and Nicky Lopez or Bemboom and Segura?
Vlad Sedler: mtshapanka: Bemboom/Segura
is it bad to have Stanek over Beeks?
Vlad Sedler: Beeks over Stanek for me personally because as long as he starts off okay he can pitch 5+ innings
Vlad, are you using Hiura as a one off or are you pairing him up
Vlad Sedler: ONe off today for Hiura for me
is Beeks as a Stand Alone on FD a little to contrarian?
Vlad Sedler: Beeks won’t be contrarian on FD. Top 4 owned
general lineup construction question for cash…do you always try to pair up everyone or just a few 2-man stacks?
Vlad Sedler: I don’t mind one-offs in cash; does not have to be pairs
FD Cash Verlander/Reynolds/Hiura/Rendon/Lopez/Soto/Reyes/Taylor/Mazara or Minor/Reynolds/Hiura/Rendon/Correa/Soto/Reyes/Taylor/Meadows thoughts on both?
Vlad Sedler: that’s tough – I obvi trust Verlander more but there’s a big difference in offense
Vlad any chance of a repeat like yesterday on Houston ownership? On DK the 3max and SE contests i was in they were about 20% overall, super underowned imo. With no sure fire paydown arms today do you think they could come in around that again since a lot of people i assume will go JV Beeks?
Vlad Sedler: I think some people will mess with idea of going down to E-Rod and/or Corbin/Soroka to force paying up for HOU bats. It’s all about getting the right ones though. If you skipped Bregman yesterday, it worked out
