Jacob deGrom reminds some of your classic surfer boy. He has a serious flow going on underneath that Mets’ cap of his, and as some people say, you really should go with the flow when it comes to this guy. On an unrelated side note, if Jacob deGrom was a surfer for real and they had fantasy surfing, I wonder how the scoring would work? Would you get tons of points for avoiding getting eaten by a shark (or maybe you’d get more for getting eaten)? I guess that’s a conversation for another day. The conversation for today should focus solely on getting Jacob deGrom and his flow into your lineup. deGrom is $2,100 more than the next best pitcher on this slate. However, a matchup in the pitchers’ haven that is San Diego against the pitchers’ haven that is the Padres’ lineup is too good to resist. It is hard to imagine him going less than 7 innings and giving up more than 2 runs… The Padres are also third in the majors in hitter strikeouts entering Wednesday. And honestly, you might as well get bonus points for Jacob’s hair, so even though you don’t, you can find security in just picking the great hair.

Kevin Gausman, SP: $6,900 – Gausman welcomes the Yankees to Baltimore, and to say it kindly, the Yankees have stunk up the joint this year. Their bats are struggling across the board, and Gausman has high strikeout potential. This young stud is finally piecing it all together, and you should let his coming out party continue in your lineup.

J.T. Realmuto, C: $3,500 – This pick is partially attributable to the fact that I have an affinity for catchers hitting leadoff, as Realmuto did Wednesday. He also has a batting average above .300, and even though Google exists now and you could just look it up, it is sometimes fun to speculate what a player’s initials could stand for.

Edwin Encarnacion1B: $3,500 – Moments ago I just witnessed Edwin smash a towering home run, his classic blast to left field in the Rogers Centre. You’ll have to believe me that I put him in this post before he went big fly…. I guess it doesn’t matter if you believe me, just put him in your lineup.

Brandon Drury, 2B/3B: $3,000 – The Muffin Man lives on Drury Lane, so that has to count for something, right? We might as well equate DraftKings points to muffins, and seems like the Muffin Man is pretty eternal, so I have no doubts in my mind that Drury will outproduce his price on Thursday.

Adrian Beltre, 3B: $3,900 – Elvis Andrus does a lot of head touching whenever Beltre hits a homer, so let’s hope that Andrus is touching Beltre’s head on Thursday. He gets a matchup with a weak lefty in J.A. Happ and will probably have a few of his patented knee-to-the-ground crushjobs.

Carlos Correa, SS: $4,300 – Correa has yet to quite turn it on this year, and he still has been one of the most productive shortstops in the game. He should have no problems hitting the ball hard against Wade Miley, and he hits third in an order that needs to pick it up; get him in your lineup as well.

Bryce Harper, OF: $4,800 – Bryce homered again on Wednesday, marking his 10th of the season. He is trying to work his way towards the title of best payer in baseball, and to get him for under $5K is a serious bargain. He wants to make baseball fun again, and getting him in your DraftKings lineup should be very fun for you!

George Springer, OF: $4,500 – Since you already should have the Astros’ three hitter in your lineup, might as well add the guy who hits in front of him. Springer is starting to heat up as well and gets to face a weak left-hander; he should have no problems with swinging hard and hitting the ball a long way.

Michael Conforto, OF: $3,900 – In the early going, Michael Conforto has made all Oregon State Beavers’ faithful proud by being one of the best hitters in baseball. He will face a weak San Diego pitching squad “headlined” by starter Colin Rea. Go Beavers, and go Conforto!

I’m Only Happy When it Rains

We’ve hit May, and Mother Nature is deciding to be a little more providing when it comes to good baseball weather. The only risk appears to be in Baltimore, where they have faced risky weather pretty much every day all season; Buck Showalter must have struck a poor deal with the devil. Keep a close eye on that one if you put Gausman in your lineup, because you wouldn’t want to miss out on a start.

Doing Lines in Vegas

Two matchups find themselves with an over/under of 9 on Thursday, and they are both attributable to weak pitching matchups and pretty good hitters’ ballparks. These two games are the Battle of the Sox, Red and White, along with the Brew Crew and the Reds. Give any hitters from these games a shot, as any and potentially many could go off.

That’s all for today. Here’s hoping your lineup doesn’t get eaten by sharks!
