Hi, do you have a second to talk about Dinelson Lamet? Seven innings pitched and seven strikeouts last night, what da f? He’s gangbusters when he wants to be, then he leaves us hanging with a multi earned run seizure once a month. Not cool man. Anyway, I’m from the church of quality DFS arms. You could throw a dart and pick anyone from tonight’s terrible slate of pitching, but since Lamet confirmed that there are some semi-reliable guys still around, Jacob Faria ($8,100) is your winner today. He threw 8 K’s across 6.1 innings last time he was in Toronto, and against a Blue Jays team that has hit .217 all week, hallelujah, praise Father Faria all night long. Here’s who else I like for this fine Wednesday:

Lance Lynn, SP: $7,600 – Here’s the 411: Folty is @ Coors and Taijuan Walker is @ the Astros. That leaves only Carlos Carrasco as your other pitching option, but Lynn’s trip to Fenway could not only be cheaper but also a lil’ more memorable. His fastball is creating its highest swing rate (48%) since July last season, and if he manhandles Andrew Benintendi, this could be as exciting as it gets in the life of Lance.

Gary Sanchez, C: $3,900 – Robert Gsellman loses his Yankees virginity tonight, and since he’s seeing the pinstripes for the first time, there’s likely to be a blown load – of earned runs that is! Sanchez has a nice seven game hit streak on the go, and he’s put up eight RBI’s over the last week to match. There’s also that .455 AVG against the Mets thing, and since he’s hit 10 of his 21 home runs away from home, this is a big green light.

Carlos Santana, 1B: $3,200 – Check this out: 5 hits, 3 HR’s, 7 RBI’s, 5 walks vs. Kyle Gibson. Still not down? 53 earned runs allowed by the Twins this month. Add all those numbers together and you get sunglasses emoji.

Daniel Murphy, 2B: $3,300 – If you put Ricky Nolasco next to the chunky Spanish kid from Modern Family, I’d have a tough time spotting the difference. Hmm, then again, if the beard wasn’t a dead give away, maybe the 29 earned runs over his last seven starts is. Murph was the fool that let Gio Gonzalez’s no-hit bid slip right through his finger tips last night, literally. He strikes me as the kinda guy that will passive aggressively take out his frustrations on Nolasco’s noodle arm.

Manny Machado, 3B: $4,000 – Marco Gon’ hate this. Gonzales too loses his virginity against the O’s tonight. There’s Much-A-Do about Machado right now, and it’s awful nice Manny has decided to give us the home runs we payed for. The Orioles are hitting .263 with 38 homers against southpaws, so this one should be money.

Ketel Marte, SS: $2,800 – Prediction: you loved this guy at the start of the season, right? Woah. Did we just become best friends? Everyone was on board with Marte back then, and everyone is now. He’s the fantasy baseball bike, and with a .361/.452/.444 line, you need to go for a ride.

Marcell Ozuna, OF: $3,600 – Matt gets Cained away from home. He’s been pounded to the tune of a 7.69 ERA on the road (a career high) and if you’re a switched on kinda fella, you know that equals kumuppins for the Marlins power dudes.

Dexter Fowler, OF: $3,500 – Leads all outfielders in AVG over the last week (.478) with 8 hits, 1 HR, 8 RBI’s and 5 strikeouts. He’s really sprung to life since the Cardinals suddenly remembered how to baseball. If I didn’t know any better, I’d say Fowler hustled us. Hard.

Nick Markakis, OF: $3,500 – Jon Gray has allowed at least one earned run and one walk in 10 of his 11 starts this year. It’s been a pretty bleh week for Rockies pitchers too, ranking dead last in the league in strikeouts (35). Markakis has gone yard four times at old lady Coors, and her good friend the fat lady may be singing early for Gray if he gets the hiccups quickly.

Jon Jay, OF: $2,800 – Jay hasn’t hit a homer in August, but he’s looking a lot more chilled at the plate. The strikeouts are still silly high, but against the eyesore that is Homer Bailey, one of the Cubs outfielders surely has to make it rain. I’ve got no fancy schmancy statistical analysis to throw at you other than, he’s due.

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

The Reds/Cubs game at Wrigley could be a little slippery. It’s likely to be overcast smack bang on 8 pm, and there’s also a strong chance of thunderstorms in Minnesota, so keep an eye on Indians/Twins. Other than that, she’s looking fine!

Doing Lines In Vegas

The Dodgers just keep on keepin’ on. They are -320 favorites against the White Sox, and after that five run outburst in the eighth inning last night, it’s not hard to wonder why. The Red Sox are also favorites at -140 against the Cardinals, interesting odds since I think the Redbirds can muster up some pretty good bats against Eduardo Rodriguez.
