Onto Tuesday and it’s a full slate starting at 7pm ET.


P Jake Arrieta (CHC) $12,500

He is one of the best pitchers this season and in the pitchers ballpark of Petco. Also note that the Padres are average in Runs scored & ranked last in team batting average.

P Andrew Cashner (MIA) $4,100

Cheap, pitching in the large Miami ballpark & the Royals are below average for runs scored.

C Evan Gattis (HOU) $3,300

Gattis has disappointed me a few times this season, against Nova he’s ½ with a HR.

1B Miguel Cabrera (DET) $4,500

Facing Gibson he’s 5/15 with a Home Run. He last homered on the 14th August in Texas.

2B Joe Panik (SF) $4,100

Off of Maeda he’s 1 for 2 with 1 HR, He’s been stuck on 7 HR for a while so is due.

3B Nolan Arenado (COL) $4,500

After a 4/5 two homer, SIX RBI ballgame Sunday he went 2/3 yesterday. He’s 6/20 with 3 dingers against Anderson.

SS Xander Bogaerts (BOS) $3,600

Bogaerts had been stuck on 13 HR for the year but yesterday in Tampa he went 2/4 with a long ball.

OF Leonys Martin (SEA) $3,200

Off of Sabathia he’s 1 for 2 that 1 left the yard.

OF JD Martinez (DET) $5,000

Expensive, however against Gibson he’s 8/19 with 2 home runs. He has 4 HR in last 8 games.

OF Mike Trout (LAA) $5,200

Trout is 6/11 off of the knuckleballer Dickey.


My Hopes

P Jake Arrieta (CHC) – 30 points

P Andrew Cashner (MIA) – 20 points

C Evan Gattis (HOU) – 7 points

1B Miguel Cabrera (DET) – 14 points

2B Joe Panik (SF) – 9 points

3B Nolan Arenado (COL) – 16 points

SS Xander Bogaerts (BOS) – 10 points

OF Leonys Martin (SEA) – 9 points

OF JD Martinez (DET) – 14 points

OF Mike Trout (LAA) – 17 points


That would net 146 points and that total should place well, good chances at points from the mound and this team should get 2 HR. Then it’s all about guys picking up walks, RBI’s and hoping if they do reach base someone else knocks them in for an extra 2 points.
