I’m talking about my players for tonight. You’ll see what I mean when/if you get down there. A few have some weird names, too. Well, this is it. The final serieseses of the season. Not much to say, but some teams are still scrapping, and there’s enough strange on the waiver wire to satisfy Tiger Woods circa … what year was that? Getting old. Well, I’m sure Tiger still gets his freak on, just like we’re still getting our baseball on over at DraftKings. Can’t stop. Won’t stop.
New to DraftKings? Scared of feeling like a small fish in a big pond? Well try out this 10 teamer of Razzball writers and friends to wet your DK whistle. Just remember to sign up through us before you do. It’s how we know you care! If you still feel helpless and lonely, be sure to check the DFSBot for your daily baseball plays.
Corey Kluber, SP: $12,300 – I see a lot of untrustworthy slop on the SP menu tonight, so I’m sparing no expense on the Rubix Klube. Nobody can figure this dude out, and it damn sure won’t be the Rays. Kluber has topped 40 DK points in 3 of the last 4, and Cleveland is still playing for something (barely).
Ryan Rua, 1B/OF: $4,100 – Ryan who-a? You just did the Pacino from Scent of a Woman, didn’t you? Rua has been red-hot for the Rangers and lines up nice against a lefty. It’s a small sample, but he’s 11-for-27 against southpaws and hits near the heart.
Ian Kinsler, 2B: $4,600 – Normally I punt 2B (or played Kyle Seager in the good old days), but I’d pay up for Kinsler tonight because the rest of the options at the position are the frickleschnitz. Detroit is in playoff mode, and Kinsler has raked in recent games. He also holds a .947 OPS versus the shoddy Anthony Swarzak.
Miguel Cabrera, 1B/3B: $5,500 – I’m always on the wrong side of Miggy, but I’m going back to the well. Obviously he’s in the same boat as Kinsler, and he also owns Swarzak (.364/.417/.773).
Rafael Ynoa, 3B/SS: $3,100 – Y not? Sadly he won’t be playing at Coors, but Ynoa has been hitting second for the Rox and had been putting up some nice DK points over the last week. I’m sold. And you just learned something.
Jake Marisnick, OF: $3,600 – Riding a 7-game hitting streak w/a couple dongs mixed in, Marisnick has been getting run out of the 3-hole for the Astros. He’ll be facing a lefty, who he is hitting .319 against this season. Next.
Randal Grichuk, OF: $2,800 – He’s not guaranteed to be on the lineup card, but keep tabs on Grichuk. He has been hitting 2nd when he plays, and he has homered twice in his last 5 starts. The kid has power. Pay attention, dynasty owners.

Doing Lines in Vegas (15-22-3 overall)
We fly high. No lie. You know this. I’ve noticed that no one else is really making picks in this section. I clearly should have stopped a while ago. Oh well. I advise to keep your cash away from baseball betting – too many f’n variables. That being said, I’d bet the farm on the unders in TB/CLE (6.5) and HOU/NYM (7.5).
