Bullpen (Phil Backert)
Phil Backert: After an 11-inning affair, the Red Sox and Twins combined to throw 22 innings from their relievers and 16 pitchers. This is worth monitoring to see if there is lingering effects over the next couple of days.
Phil Backert: The Orioles bullpen is a disaster and will finish up their series against the Athletics by implementing a bullpen game. Not good.
Phil Backert: The Phillies and Nationals have had back-to-back postponements so the bullpens should be fresh. I really want to target the Phillies, but it’s hard to know if the two days of rest can make them more effective.
Phil Backert: The Blue Jays have allowed nine home runs over the last seven days. Left-handed hitters are slugging .505 in the month of June.
Phil Backert: Mets starter Jacob deGrom pitched into the ninth inning on Tuesday night, but the Mets bullpen has struggled over the last seven days as they own the highest xFIP at 6.19. Lefties are also slugging .776 in the month of June, which is by far the highest in baseball.
Hitting (Vlad Sedler)
Vlad Sedler: Back to OAK (as is everyone). Gotta have Canha/Pinder (if in lineup). Sneaky SP play is Strahm.
You like strahm over mahle?
Vlad Sedler: Today I do
i’m gonna play Olson with my Oakland bats. Hoping LvL keeps his ownership down. Only 40ABs but he is mashing lefties this year.
Vlad Sedler: Yep, I like it. Hopefully in lineup.
What’s your take on snell? Yankees scary lineup but if snell is on it’s 10+ ks
Vlad Sedler: Snell’s had a couple of rough starts in his last 3. Maybe something’s off but I see a decent outing for him today plus weather good for that and his price is down.
Other than OAK, who do you like @vlad sedler
Vlad Sedler: WAS, some BAL lefties, HOU
Vlad, thoughts on Was bats mainly lefties and Rendon vs Eflin? Eflin has been good against Was over 40 FD points has me a bit worried stacking up Was.
Vlad Sedler: It’s a contrarian ‘anything can happen, it’s baseball’ for a small slate play. Bad Eflin ocassionally rears his ugly head.
Vlad Sedler: Brantley/Altuve/Reddick I like
Vlad, Pham is my lock. You like him at all?
Vlad Sedler: I do, my 3rd team is 9, 1, 2, 4, 5 TB
