MLB PICKS: SEPTEMBER 15TH

Not a good night for me, although I had a team with Tanner Roark & Anthony Rizzo entering 7pm with a good amount of points, but sadly no other home runs followed. And Pedroia of all people went hitless.

My team for Thursday is as follows.

 

P Jerad Eickhoff (PHI) $7,500

Eickhoff’s season ERA is 3.73 which means he should score positive points; of his last 10 games he has gotten 5 quality starts. So far this season the Pirates hitting numbers have been middle of the pack.

P Adam Wainwright (STL) $7,700

His last time out against the Brewers was probably his best outing of the year. The Giants rank 28th in home runs and are middle of the pack in runs scored.

C Yadier Molina (STL) $3,100

Over the past 15 days Molina has gone 15/45 with 3 home runs, Facing Cueto he is 10/39 with 2 home runs & 8 RBI’s.

1B Edwin Encarnacion (TOR) $4,800

Encarnacion has 39 homers so far in 2016 and a batting average of .265. Always a candidate to hit a home runs.

2B Dustin Pedroia (BOS) $4,300

Facing Tanaka is 6/19 with a home run, over the past 7 days he is hitting .480.

3B Manny Machado (BAL) $4,300

Over the last 15 days he has gone 16/54 with 4 home runs.

SS Corey Seager (LAD) $5,400

Over the past 15 days Seager is 9/25 with 1 home run, he has a .319 average for the season.

OF Kole Calhoun (LAA) $4,400

Facing Happ he is 5/10 with 2 home runs, he has 17 homers for the year so far.

OF Jacoby Ellsbury (NYY) $4,000

Facing Rodriguez he is 5/17 with 2 home runs, over the past 7 days he is 8/24 with 2 homers.

OF Jose Ramirez (CLE) $4,500

Batting .310 for the season and today faces James Shields who has had an awful 2016.

 

Here’s my hopes

P Jerad Eickhoff (PHI) – 25 pts

P Adam Wainwright (STL) – 25 pts

C Yadier Molina (STL) – 8 pts

1B Edwin Encarnacion (TOR) – 14 pts

2B Dustin Pedroia (BOS) – 9 pts

3B Manny Machado (BAL) – 10 pts

SS Corey Seager (LAD) – 10 pts

OF Kole Calhoun (LAA) – 14 pts

OF Jacoby Ellsbury (NYY) – 10 pts

OF Jose Ramirez (CLE) – 10 pts

 

That would bring a total of 134 points which should place in a contest.
