MLB DFS – Thu, 8/31

Small slate, but I honestly find the six games tonight to be rather interesting.

 

PITCHING

Madison Bumgarner … We’ve reached the point where MadBum is going to let loose one of these starts and his price is not going to match the production that we get.  What I mean is, I’m jumping all over his potential for a huge game at the price he costs on both sites tonight.  My #1 by far even though he wont get ANY offensive help from his hitters.  He needs to homer today.

CC Sabathia .. Sabathia has done pretty well against many of these current Red Sox.  I don’t love him because I think we get a 4-3 or 5-4 type close game and even though they had a DH yesterday the Yanks could go to the pen early.  But Boston has struggled some with lefties and CC is a good option for me tonight as an SP2.

Michael Wacha … Giants are trash offensively and are back home for the first time in a looong time.  So you know the drill.  This is a 1-0 game.  I just hope MadBum takes him deep.

 

FADE

E-Rod … I just fade him, it’s what I do.

 

 

FAVORITE STACKS

Baltimore … I know Estrada has great numbers against them.  Not tonight for me.  70%+ humidity in Camden  Yards.  Ball will travel.

Milwaukee … Staying home and welcoming in Gio Gonzalez who has been amazing at home and Gio on the road.  Love Milwaukee tonight.

Miami … Ben Lively and the Phils Pen.  End of story.
