It’s been a great season, but as all good things must come to an end, so shall this. Have a great fall, winter and spring training, and we’ll see you next season.
But first, we still have today. And today we have a jam-packed 15-game slate sending us off in style. Our greatest concern today is avoiding the minefield of early exits, late scratches, and lack of motivation as teams prepare alternately for off-seasons or post-seasons. To give our lineups the greatest chance at success we need to figure out some of the more secure options out there today.
Our final picks of the season should help accomplish just that.

Noah Syndergaard, SP: $8,000. Thor faces a Braves team that just wants to focus on the postseason, not this final series vs. the Mets. Or so it seems, having scored two total runs and striking out 23 times over the first two games of the series. With the wind blowing in and Syndergaard arbitration eligible after this season, the motivation for a strong finish should be there to dominate this Acuna-less Braves lineup today. Syndergaard is overwhelmingly the preferred play today.
Milwaukee Brewers – Because Coors. Also because the division in the NL Central is the one undecided race in baseball, so the Brewers need this win. The order we like them:
Keston Hiura, 2B: $4,200
Trent Grisham, OF: $3,400
Mike Moustakas, 3B: $4,100
Tyler Austin, OF: $3,000
Ryan Braun, OF: $3,800
Yasmani Grandal, C/1B: $3,900
Cory Spangenberg, 2B: $3,000
Eric Thames, C/1B: $3,700
Lorenzo Cain, OF: $3,500
Boston Red Sox – The Red Sox face the unassuming Chandler Shepherd, and the small-sample-size 7.71 ERA that goes along with him. We don’t have implied totals to guide our fantasy prognostication, but we can assume Boston’s would be among the highest today. Stack away:
Rafael Devers, 3B: $3,900
Andrew Benintendi, OF: $3,000
Xander Bogaerts, SS: $3,900
Mookie Betts, OF: $4,400
J.D. Martinez, OF: $4,400
Christian Vazquez, C/1B: $3,100
Also look to stack the Cardinals, as they need a win today to secure the division and have some outstanding hitting conditions to boot. The Rockies, Royals and Twins are also all hitting in very favorable conditions.
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Though rain will likely delay a game or two we should be able to get them all in today.
