Wow! Time really does fly when you’re having fun. I honestly can’t believe that the 2017 fantasy baseball season is already over…well, almost. Kudos to you who are still fighting the good fight all the way til the end. Tip of the cap to you. It’s been real fo sho and I hope you all have a great offseason but before you go, let’s talk about our two top arms tonight. Yu Darvish at $24,00o is the top pitcher on the board tonight and I love the start against the Padres. I know we’ve been picking on them all year and if my calculations are correct, it’s paid off, about 82% of the time. Darvish had a rough time finding his groove in Dodger blue right out of the gate, but he’s thrown up two 23+ fantasy point starts in the last 2 weeks. I’m crossing my fingers for a 30+ night, time to let the big dog eat. Meanwhile, Aaron Nola at $15,600 is facing the Nationals tonight and the Streamonator loves this start right behind Darvish. Frankly, Nola has been great all year and the Nats have been resting guys. If Nola gets a light Washington lineup then all in on him in both cash and tourney play. Now that are pitching is locked and loaded, let’s go see who we can pair with Stanton in Coors.

Alex Bregman, IF: $8,000 – He cooled down there for a little bit, but I think tonight’s game in Texas against Cashner could have him swinging a hot bat by the end of the night.
Yadier Molina, IF: $7,200 – Yaddy was riding a 5 game hitting streak before he went 0-2 yesterday. He’ll pick right back up where he left off tonight against Jon Lester. He’s 12/32 lifetime, so I’m feeling a couple knocks, a RBI and a run or two.
Brandon Phillips, IF: $7,200 – Dat Dude BP has been has been mashing since he got traded to the Angels. He’s facing the pitcher formerly known as Big Game James Shields. Feel free to stack the Angels tonight as they are playing in hitter friendly Southside Chicago.
Chris Hermann, IF/OF: $6,000 – I needed a cheap bat so I could fit Stanton in the mix.
Giancarlo Stanton, OF: $11,200 – I absolutely could not resist rostering Stanton in Coors tonight. Bombs away big boy!
I’m Only Happy When It Rains
Everything looks great except the Rockies and Marlins game in Colorado, so be sure to keep a close eye on this if you’re stacking in Coors. The forecast is calling for only a 50% chance of rain, but the temperatures are supposed to be below 50 degrees at game time. Winter is Coming!
Doing Lines In Vegas
Yu can’t be surprised that Darvish and Dodgers -265 are leading the pack tonight against the Padres. The cold weather in Coors doesn’t have Vegas scared as the Colorado and Miami, 12 o/u, is a full two runs higher than any other contest tonight.
