“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).
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.
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.
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!
