Steve Renner MLB DFS – 9/13

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

With three day games today we get a slightly shortened Wednesday slate tonight with 12 games going….


 

PITCHING

Max Scherzer … If someone would like to explain to me why Max Scherzer is below 11k on FanDuel then I am all ears.  What a joke on the pricing here.  I understand that they’ve weighted the pricing based on recent performance but this is a spot where we can easily assume he will give us good value for that price.  All season long we have consistently found enough good bats around the 10k-11k range pitchers on FanDuel.  On DraftKings, however, at 13.4, I am fine fading Max because although I love him for price on FanDuel, I don’t think we’re going to see a 12+ strikeout, 8 inning performance from Scherzer that some are scared of.  Atlanta is lower on the strikeout totals and have a couple bats to scare me off him on DK.

Chase Anderson … My sneaky gem of the night is Mr. Bullwinkle himself!   McCutchen is the one guy to concern with here and I trust Anderson to be smart around him and pitch deep into the game tonight and lead the Brewers to victory.

Ervin Santana … The Twins are on a roll and this appears to be one of those September locks as they welcome in the Padres.  The only thing scaring me off Santana slightly is that the weather is in the mid 80’s here with good humidity.  Santana shutdown the Padres earlier this year and is a nice pivot off Max on DK….

SP2 Play of the day

Matt Moore … Second half Matt Moore against the Dodgers?  Who just clinched finally?  This smells like another low scoring game with Moore outpitching Darvish..   SP2 lock on DK.

 

TOP STACKS

Philadelphia … If it isn’t broke, dont fix it.  Back on the Phillies tonight!

Milwaukee  … No Braun in the lineup will keep the casual players away.  Thames/Walker/Santana/Shaw makes a sweet 1-4 HR upside stack.

Seattle/Texas … Great hitting conditions here and two pitchers who struggle to put up 0’s.  I think this game flips to the Rangers tonight but can’t ignore Nelson Cruz and his history against Texas and notably Martin Perez.

LA Angels … Mike Fiers has been atrocious over his last two starts.

St. Louis … This game should get into the bullpens early with two young pitchers on the mound.  I liked Mahle last start but not today against a surging Cardinals team.
