Dongers Club: Friday 9/28

For those still playing MLB this weekend I tip my hat to you.  I am personally saving up for the MLB playoffs as I trust those games slightly more, but there’s still some good plays tonight and tomorrow — DO. NOT. PLAY. SUNDAY!!

 

PITCHING

  1. Hyun-Jin Ryu … I personally don’t care much for Ryu and he is facing MadBum which really causes some pause for using him.  The Dodgers need to keep winning and the Giants purposely moved MadBum to tonight to face them to help ruin their chances of winning the division.  Love the move Giants, but Ryu is in a good spot in a nice pitchers park.
  2. Tyler Glasnow … Glasnow has the K upside of facing Toronto at home.  He’s the top mid range option for me today on FanDuel
  3. Zach Davies … Milwaukee needs to keep winning and has a cake walk matchup with the Tigers tonight.
  4. Mike Foltynewicz … Folty to me is sneaky today.  The Phillies are returning home from Coors field and strike out a ton and Folty’s always pitched fantastic in Philly.  The question is how long do they stretch him out tonight with the playoffs coming up and him being their likely top arm.

 

OFFENSE STACKS

  1. HOUSTON … Houston in Camden Yards any other time would be a lock button.  Having nothing to play for though I expected we would get a B-team today.   We’re not!   Altuve, Correa, Reddick are all in and are all fantastic plays today.
  2. MILWAUKEE … The Brewers should play at home w/ the roof closed today and how we fade them vs J.Zimm?
