Ooooh that smell, Can’t you smell that smell, Ooooh that smell, The smell of death surrounds you”.  If you don’t recognize this gem little by Lynyrd Skynyrd, I won’t hold it against you.  I’m sure you’re familiar with their bigger hits like, Sweet Home Alabama, Tuesday’s Gone, or the epic classic Free Bird.  If you’re still drawing a blank and those legendary songs don’t ring a bell, then you’re not a true ‘Merican!  The bad news is Chuck Norris just put you on his list because you’re not a true ‘Merican, the good news is you can use tonight’s DFS winnings to redeem yourself and convince him otherwise.  I y’all have a short memory, but if you followed my lineup from last week you would have got paid straight cash homie!  Yep, for the record I killed it last week with a total of 151.2 points, even with my featured pitcher Luis Severino scoring a paltry 2.75 points.  I banked a cool $125 off a $5 entry.  I’m not bragging by any means, but it just goes to show that you can take your coffee money and turn it into some walking around money.  If you made it all the through my longest intro ever, then your patience is ’bout to be rewarded with tonight’s sleeper pick: Blake Snell at $15,000.  Our featured boy, B’Locke Snell seems like he’s shaken off that undeniable odor of disappointment that tends to linger alongside most rookie pitchers.  Over his last 5 starts he’s gone 24.2 innings giving up 8 ER, to go with 22 Ks and a 2.97 ERA.  If he can get over the 5 IP hump, he could easily pick up double digit Ks vs the struggling Royals offense tonight.  Snell is due to come up smelling roses tonight.  Now let’s see who else is going to keep our winning streak going.

Coors is in play tonight and the Cubs hitters are the highest priced, but I’m staying away from the game due to the weather.  On a quick personal note, I’d like to wish one of my best childhood friends, Tommy Galante, a speedy recovery with his recent surgery.  We all take our health for granted and I’m just happy you’re back on the mend Brotha.  Love ya!

Carlos Martinez, SP: $18,900 – CMart has been excellent this year, averaging over 18.50 points per start.  He’s got the Marlins in Miami and if he can play keep away from Marcel Ozuna and Stanton, he should be in for a solid night.

Matt Moore, SP: $15,600 – He’s been solid about every other start and after getting shelled for 9 ER against the Dodgers last week, he’s in line for a bounce back.  The Mets must be distracted with all this Matt Harvey BS because they were held to one hit yesterday by Jose Urena (who came out of the bullpen for a spot start).

Trea Turner, IF: $10,200 – Turner the Burner has been sizzling since he got back from the DL.  He’s facing Kevin Gausman tonight and he’s been running on empty all season with a 7.55 ERA.

Manny Machado, IF: $9,900 – He’s raised his average almost 25 points in the last four games to go along with 2 HR’s and 4 RBI.  He’s got Gio Gonzalez tonight and I have a feeling the Regression Fairies are going to be visiting him in Baltimore tonight.  You know my Love runs deep for Baltimore.

Starlin Castro, IF: $7,500 – The Yankees have been raking over the last 16 games and I haven’t been rostering them much in DFS.

Cody Bellinger, IF: $7,200 – Let’s all send a Thank You letter to Adrian Gonzalez for stepping aside and going on the DL.  Bellinger has looked better than advertised and he’s facing Trevor Williams in Pittsburgh with the wind blowing out to RF.  Yes, please, and thank you!

Aaron Judge, OF: $8,800 – This Rookie Of The Year candidate along with Castro is facing Rookie Davis tonight, in a hitter friendly Cincinnati.  The wind is blowing out to straight center tonight, Case Closed!

Giancarlo Stanton, OF: $8,700 – He finally woke up this weekend.  He cracked two bombs yesterday and when he gets hot, he gets scorching hot.

Nomar Mazara, OF: $6,900 – I think a lot of people will overlook this game because it’s in San Diego.  Dude, when Jered Weaver is pitching the fences could be 450 feet at each foul pole.

Joey Gallo, OF: $6,800 – Joey Bag-O-Bombs got the day off yesterday and he’s ready to drop some record setting bombs in Petco tonight!

I’m Only Happy When It Rains

The Cubs and Rockies game could cause real havoc on a lot of rosters, so keep an eye out as there’s anywhere from 45-65% chance of rain at game time.  The rest of the schedule looks great!

Doing Lines In Vegas

Brandon McCarthy and the Dodgers lead the pack tonight -186 against Trevor Williams and the Pirates.  Coors as usual has the highest run total 11 O/U, even with Jake Arrieta on the mound.

    I thought the smell was cocaine?

      @Zeus: HA! To my understanding the song was written as a warning from the band to the band about their partying ways. There’s definitely some devil’s dandruff references in the song.

        @Teddy Heater: maybe I had that thought in college?

          @Zeus: Maybe you’re having flashbacks from last weeks write-up

          “It’s been a rocky road with the two of these young bucks; they giveth and they taketh away in the blink of a ticker. Stacks on stacks of Ks, then they take your ERA/WHIP and smash it so fine that you could use it to chalk the foul lines on your coffee table.

    I don’t think McCarthy is going to start tonight

    • Teddy Heater says:

      @joeg414: Yeah, it’s looking like Wood is going to get pushed up tonight (although it’s actually his day to start due to the rainout) It doesn’t look like FantasyDraft is going to have him as an option because McCarthy is still listed as the Dodgers starter. I like Wood tonight if he ends up getting added.

    Marlin stack tonight. Do it!

    • Zeus says:

      @FrankGrimes: I’m in agreement with Grimsey

      @FrankGrimes: Against CMart? You got an inside line on this?

  4. Teddy Heater says:

    I will have to amend the Mazara & Gallo pick as Cahill is slated to start and after the epic 18 inning affair last night, Judge & Castro maybe a bit gassed.

    Wilmer Flores. Versus a Lefty. That is all.

      @Earl Deep Jr: I like it, missed that one thinking Gallo and Mazara were facing Weaver.
