Bullpen (Phil Backert)
Phil Backert: The horrendous Orioles bullpen will implement a bullpen game for the second time this week. As of this writing it is not known who will get the ball first and it appears they will be promoting two new pitchers from the minors after left-hander Paul Fry and right-hander Evan Phillips were demoted. Regardless, we are richer because of targeting this unit and that shouldn’t change.
Phil Backert: We have highlighted the Phillies bullpen this week despite their two rainouts and they did not disappoint as the second batter reliever Edubray Ramos faced hit a home run. This is important because it was right-handed hitter Victor Robles that hit the home run. We have stressed that the Phillies bullpen is allowing a league high slugging percentage to righties in the month of June at .738.
Phil Backert: The Tigers have allowed a hard hit percentage of 48.2 percent over the last seven days with a putrid swinging strike percentage of 8.7 percent. Their xFIP during this span 5.46 and opponents are batting .309.
Phil Backert: The Astros bullpen is scuffling as they are allowing an opponents batting average of .311 over the last seven days. This includes five home runs and a hard hit percentage of 45.8 percent. Even more surprising is their low swinging strike percentage of 9.1 percent.
Hitting (Vlad Sedler)
Vlad, do you think Urias is worth picking up in a 12 team league?
Vlad Sedler: Yep, definitely
vlad how do you feel about this slate in general?
Vlad Sedler: Think I may just play 1 lineup today just mixing in favorite hitters from my top stacks. It’s a good slate.
Hey vlad. I saw CHW was one of your top stacks today. Any thoughts on Tilson leading off at 2300 on FanDuel tonight? Was considering using Tilson instead of bader who was in your article.. any thoughts on that? Just need a 2.3k or less OF; thanks!
Vlad Sedler: Tilson is really really bad lol. But a lefty who can steal bases at top of the lineup with a high total and being cheap, he’s in play.
Vlad you mentioned being intrigued by the nats. Anything changed? More interest? Less? I may make them one of my main 3 teams because i have this feeling Kuechel could beg shelled in his first game back
Vlad Sedler: Yea, if I were going Nats would probably just do Rendon, Howie, Dozier
Vlad Sedler: I’ve got some personal stuff going on next couple hours so just wanted to get one lineup in in case I wasn’t around to tinker. Usually play 3 to 5. BUT I’ve had really good success on days I play just one. Forces me to put my best plays on one team, even if it’s not stack’y’
Vlad Sedler: Kinda sucks Dickerson not playing today (for Musgrove’s defensive purposes)
Vlad Sedler: Looks like Edman not in today. Guess Bader makes sense if you need someone under 3k on DK
Vlad Sedler: I like Didi
got any HR calls for us vlad?
Vlad Sedler: A Yankee LOL. But, I do think Moncada homers today
