Howdy, Razzfolks!

We’ve reached the end, just about. Playoffs start Monday in Yahoo standard leagues. Kudos to you if you’re still alive and breathing, and I hope us ne’er-do-wells here at Razzball helped you along the way. Or at least I hope we entertained you, if nothing else!

Chicago White Sox fans have a lot of good news coming their way, and doubly so if you’ve got one or more of these guys on your fantasy teams. Let’s see what else this week brought us on the injury front:

Welcome into another Razzball DFS Thursday, the dust has settled from a wild trade deadline and guys are starting to get acclimated to their new homes. Some guys aren’t wasting any time showing off in a new uniform such as Abraham Toro, 3B: $2,500 – Seattle seems to agree with him, batting over .400 with 3 bombs. You love to see it, especially when he doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. He’ll have the chance to continue that run today in the Big Apple and if you can make it there you can make it anywhere.

In the front row of Dodger Stadium, an empty seat adorned with only everything bagel seasoning and suspenders commemorating Larry King sat to the right of home plate. Still there in person, Mary Hart recounted how Larry used to say, “Something smells funny in my Duane Kuiper.” A big game for the Dodgers, make no mistake. Almost as big as the game they lost the night before. This game they wouldn’t come up short, especially with Jake Odorizzi (3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 4.95) helping. Mookie Betts (2-for-5 and his 16th and 17th homer) led the way, showing why he’s Mookie Best. The celebrities weren’t just in the stands, as Will Smith (1-for-3, 3 RBIs) hit his 15th homer. The big story, of course, was the debut of the newly-acquired Max Scherzer (7 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 10 Ks, ERA at 2.75). One film exec in the crowd was heard saying, “He wouldn’t be half-bad if he had the same color eyes.” Oh, and A.J. Pollock (2-for-4, 2 RBIs) hit his 14th homer, and he’s been about 500 spots better than Cody Belanger on the Player Rater, as Cody now hits out of the eight hole. Hey, the 8-hole is only two spots from ‘falling’ to leadoff, which is what I say as I slowly climb out my window. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Good morning folx! Time for your cherished morning article about tossing your money at the wall and hoping something sticks. Oh wait, I thought I was talking about my New York Times subscription. ENYWHEY. I’ve been feverishly working on a few new projects to help with my seasonal rankings, and I’ve also got a DFS project in the works that combines a few different projection systems. Which ones? I’ll never tell! Mostly because I’m not entirely sure the success of my new system. But if you’re looking for edges (don’t Google that), then come along and visit me after the jump for some interesting perspectives on who you should be playing.

Welcome back and today we have a nice 11 game slate in which to click players we hinge our DFS greatness on and hope we can break even on the day in order to do it all again the next day. Nothing better right? Hope everybody had a great weekend as we are almost halfway through the season already and we should be seeing some exciting young players making their way to the minors. (Hope you all got on the Wander Franco train his 1st game up before his price went up last week.) Plenty of pitchers to choose from today that look interesting so let’s get into our focus pitcher for today and I’m going with Kyle Hendricks ($9,300 ).

Hendricks has a great floor for you to work with, doesn’t break the bank for your lineup and there hardly is any foot traffic on the bases when he is on the mound. You all remember late April early May Hendricks was dreadful for 3 starts during that span and we were all flabbergasted as to what the heck is going on. Well since May 16th (8 starts) Hendricks is back to being the Hendricks of old and has gone at least 6 INN in every start, no more than 3 ER, and has gone 9-1 with a 2.50 ERA. Hendricks faces the Brewers today which he faced twice earlier in the season both starts were quality starts going his usual 6 INN with 6 K’s and 2 ER’s combined in both starts. I don’t see anything changing from the norm we have seen from Hendricks lately. The Brewers are awful against righties with .213 avg and .298 OBP and they are trotting out strikeout artists like Keston Hiura and Tyrone Taylor these days so I wouldn’t be too concerned about the lineup. The Cubs are starting Freddy Peralta today which will get high ownership so you will probably see a 2-1 game here but I like the Cubs’ chances of getting into the Brewers’ bullpen and pulling out a victory here.

Liked Jake Odorizzi (5 IP, 0 ER, zero hits, 1 walk, 9 Ks, ERA at 4.75) going into this year, but lost enthusiasm for him. Of course, I totally saw this game coming:

The accuracy of my big-ass brain astounds even me. Yo, is anyone sure I’m not a time traveler? Are you? I’m going to go to the past right now and have sex with your mom nine months before you’re born. That’s right, I’m your daddy! Take out the trash, by the way. Right now, boy! I don’t care if garbage day isn’t until Thursday and you’re 52 years old, which is much, much, much older than me! I am your daddy! Okay, so I didn’t foresee Odorizzi’s start yesterday. Didn’t think he could go more than 3-4 innings, because the way the Astros have been using him. For now, I’d use the Streamonator on Odorizzi, and be careful, because of how wonky his usage has been. This is coming from prior experience, which is very extensive due to time travel. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Welcome to another installment of Tuesday MLB DFS here on Razzball. We have a full slate of games on tonight’s slate, with some possible rain in parts of the midwest and northeast. Though this slate isn’t loaded with aces on the mound, there are quite a few nice spots to consider. The top options on the mound today include Tyler Glasnow vs WAS, Shane Bieber @ STL, Walker Buehler @ PIT, and Chris Bassitt vs ARI. The fact there aren’t an abundant amount of solid places to go on the mound means there’s likely going to be some teams that go off tonight at the plate. Places I’m going to turn for bats include Oakland, Philadelphia, Dodgers, and San Diego. 

Good luck tonight, and remember to stay positive and visualize that bankroll spiking like Bitcoin in April. Visualize your success! You HAVE to believe it to be true before it can happen. Go with your gut and do it with confidence. Let’s go!

Welcome to another installment of Tuesday MLB DFS here on Razzball. We have a near full slate of games on tonight’s main slate, with near perfect weather in most places. It’s warm across the land and bats are beginning to show life. As hard as it is to believe, we’ve gone almost a full week without a no hitter. Seasonal stats are beginning to become more useful as we near the 50 game mark for most teams. 

 

We welcome the return of a decent arm in the Mets’ rotation as average MLB Starting Pitcher Jacob deGrom returns to the mound after missing two starts due to side issues. But seriously, he couldn’t ask for a better matchup to return to as he takes on the Rockies at home. This slate isn’t lacking in stud arms as there are 8 or 9 guys who are likely aces on seasonal teams. However, out of the group of 8 or 9, I’m going to focus my energy on 2 or 3. Good luck tonight, stay positive and visualize that bank roll spiking like Bitcoin in April. Visualize your success! You HAVE to believe it to be true before it can happen. Go with your gut and do it with confidence. Let’s go!

A HUGE slate on this beautiful Tuesday evening. This is classic GPP territory tonight as ownership across the board shouldn’t be too much of a factor. On a 13 game slate with near-perfect weather, we are in for an interesting night of baseball. The top arms include Max Scherzer ($12,000), Lucas Giolito ($10,600), Walker Buehler ($9,800), and Christian Javier ($9,400). I wouldn’t blame anyone for going the Scherzer route, as he looks fantastic of late and is a good bet to go deep. However, I’m seeing offense spike a bit in TD Ballpark in Dunedin, Florida, where the Blue Jays are calling home this summer. At that price, I rather go down to the next few guys and fit those bats that should be alive and well tonight. 

NOTE: If you’re building multiple lineups (7-12)  and are using 4 or 5 different main stacks, be sure to get those stacks in with the different pitchers you’re using. If you’re going with 3 different arms, be sure to get those bats you like in with each arm the best you can. This sounds like a no-brainer but when you’re building all those lineups, it’s easy to make edits and then inadvertently have four line-ups of the same stack and same pitcher. Use each entry to your full advantage. Search out the single or 3 entry max contests. Don’t always feel like you have to try and win $30,000 every night. Learn how to cash in the smaller contests, build that bankroll and then start taking shots for the big money. Most importantly, have fun! If losing $20 or $30 bucks on a given night is going to ruin your day, you are doing it wrong.

The Dodgers vs. Mariners series is a possible October matchup in April, or as I like to call it, “Who Will Mrs. Seager Love More? Kyle or Corey?” And it produced a fantastic start by Julio Urias (7 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 1 walk, 11Ks, ERA at 2.81). You could even say eye-opening. Seriously, though, he looks great. Not him looking, necessarily. Seattle’s a pretty terrible offense right now. I saw Kyle Seager batting third, and I was like dubya tee eff on that my man, but then I looked at rest of the lineup, and there was no one else I would’ve put in that slot. They’re hitting two catchers in one lineup, like that’s a thing. Side note: That’s not a thing. Urias, though, I said this after his first start of the year, and I will say again after this awkward preamble, if I could go back to the preseason, I’d make him my sneaky NL Cy Young pick. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:
