Sadly all my teams last night came up short, but that’s fantasy & gambling, just hope today goes better.
Last Night’s Stat’s
Contests Played: 4
Total Stake: $2.50
Paid places: 0
There’s plenty of good options today, 14 games start from 7.05pm ET, whilst the early game starts at 2.20pm ET with the Brewers visiting Wrigley Field.
This team starts from 7.05 and should fare well.
P Felix Hernandez (SEA) $8,000
Hernandez last start saw him pitch 6 innings of shutout baseball, following back to back horrific games against the Rangers. The Mariners have won 8 of his last 10 games & his 3.58 season ERA is a good number.
P Chris Sale (CWS) $12,600
Sale is in position for an AL CY Young award, and is a bigger name than Rick Porcello much like Joe DiMaggio was a bigger name than brother Dominic & Ted Williams in MVP awards. Sale’s 3.03 ERA for the year & his K/9 of 9.1 make him a daily fantasy demi-god.
C Stephen Vogt (OAK) $3,100
Over the past 7 days the catcher has gone 9/27 with 1 home run & 7 RBI’s.
1B Miguel Cabrera (DET) $4,400
Facing Kluber “Miggy” is 20/42 with 5 home runs, At 91 RBI’s for the year he is closing in on 100 RBI & has 33 round trippers.
2B Jonathan Schoop (BAL) $3,600
Schoop’s last 7 days have seen him go 7/29 with 3 home runs, Facing Chris Archer he is 5/13 with 2 long balls.
3B Manny Machado (BAL) $4,100
Machado is 10/29 with a homer against Archer; Manny has 3 homers over the past 15 days with a batting average of .315.
SS Andrelton Simmons (LAA) $3,500
Simmons is hitting .361 with 3 home runs over the past 15 days, facing the knuckleballer Dickey he is 5/9.
OF Melky Cabrera (CWS) $3,300
Facing Ian Kennedy Melky is 5/18 with 2 home runs; he has also gone 9/28 over his last 7 days.
OF Nelson Cruz (SEA) $4,100
Over the past 7 days Cruz has gone 10/22 with 2 home runs, Facing McHugh he is 6/15 with 2 home runs.
OF Michael Saunders (TOR) $3,300
Facing Weaver Saunders is 9/26 with a home run; he has been struggling of late though.
Both my starting pitchers are above average, and 5 of my hitters are really strong candidates to hit a home run, I could see this team scoring 140-150 points which should result in a return on stake.
