Dongers Club: 9/3 Main Slate

Mon, 9/3 Main Slate

Five games will make up the Labor Day Main slate tonight

 

PITCHING

  1. Jake deGrom … Usually on a small slate like this we would auto fade someone like deGrom who is facing a tough opponent but still would be the popular play.  His price though is tough to fit him in and for that reason he becomes actually a nice contrarian top play today.  I prefer mid range / value guys below on FD, but locking in a 25 from Jake on DK makes sense tonight.
  2. Erasmo Ramirez … The Mariners welcome in the Orioles who have had some good games in Seattle in the past and certainly have been a sneaky offensive team of late but they’re still ranked pretty low and this is a spot where I’ll take the value arm in Erasmo and pick on the Birds tonight.
  3. Marcus Stroman … Stroman and Shoemaker will be chalk options totday on DK and it’ts no brainer Stroman for me

 

TOP STACKS

  1. Angels … in … Arlington.   Trout, Simmons and Marte.   The Rangers are also in a good spot tonight so its’ worth coniseration of a game stack here, but I like the game below just as much.
  2. Diamondbacks …. Facing Bryan Mitchell back at home should have a good game tonight.  Top of the order is where I would put the faith tonight.
  3. Padres … I think they’re sneaky and the reason why I omitted Godley from the list above
