P – Max Scherzer (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): 12,900. It is no secret how dominant Scherzer can be when he is on the mound. He is facing a very weak offense on Tuesday, whom he has dominated throughout his career. The Phillies are ranked as the 19th best offense in Major League Baseball.

He faced the Phillies earlier this season and threw 7 innings, giving up 5 hits, 1 earned run, 1 walk, and 7 strikeouts. Throughout his career, the Phillies are hitting .174 against Scherzer over 132 at bats. Scherzer is pitching at his home stadium on Tuesday for the first time since April 11th, so he could put on a show for his home crowd.

P – Ricky Nolasco (vs. Cleveland Indians): $6,700. In order to afford some big bats, it was necessary to take a risk and go with a cheaper pitcher. In 2016, Nolasco is averaging 18.6 points per game on Draft Kings. He will be facing the Cleveland Indians’ offense on Tuesday, who is ranked as the 20th best offense in Major League Baseball.

Nolasco is known as a boom or bust option, so hopefully he booms on Tuesday. In 91 career at bats against Nolasco, the Indians’ offense is hitting .231 with 18 strikeouts.

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For Draft Kings 4/25/16 – Take 2

The match-ups for April 25th are exciting, so I decided to do a second version of my picks. You can see my original picks at the following link: CLICK HERE.

P – Noah Syndergaard (vs. Cincinnati Reds): $11,400. Syndergaard has been an absolute beast this year. In 3 starts in 2016, he has thrown 20 innings, with a 0.90 ERA, 29 strikeouts, and only 4 walks. \

He is currently averaging a massive, 31.9 points per game on Draft Kings. He will be facing the 23rd best offense in Major League Baseball, the Cincinnati Reds, on Monday.

Syndergaard will also be pitching in his home stadium, which is always a plus to have your hometown crowd behind a pitcher. Considering what he has done this season, it is near impossible not to start him on Monday.

P – Marcus Stroman (vs. Chicago White Sox): $8,700. Stroman’s price seems a little low for Monday, but it is probably due to the fact that multiple elite pitchers are throwing on Monday. Regardless, this is good news for daily fantasy players.

Stroman has faced some incredibly tough offenses this season. His four starts consist of the Rays, Red Sox, Yankees, and the Orioles…. yikes. His stats are inflated because of his tough match-ups in my opinion.

In 28.1 innings pitched, he has a 4.13 ERA, 15 strikeouts, and 7 walks. He isn’t going to rack up a bunch of strikeouts, but he should go deep into Mondays game. He is facing the White Sox, who have the 24th best offense in baseball.

Stroman will be pitching on his home turf, against a sub-par offensive team…. this could be a great match-up for this low price.

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – April 25, 2016

MLB: ALCS-Boston Red Sox at Detroit Tigers

Tim Fuller-USA TODAY Sports

Why is there controversy about “the neighborhood play”? How can someone be against calling someone safe if the second baseman doesn’t touch the bag?

Also a listener sends me into a self esteem spiral and a wild day of baseball was experienced by all.

It is a “close enough” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Anthony Rizzo, Steven Souza Jr, Stephen Strasburg, Yordano Ventura, Paul Goldschmidt, Matt Boyd and Eduardo Nunez all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.

Anthony Rizzo hit a pair of homers, driving in four and led the Cubs to a 9-0 drubbing of the Reds.

Steven Souza Jr. homered twice and drove in three to help the Rays pound the Yankees, 8-1.

Stephen Strasburg pitched into the 8th, striking out 10 Twins batters in 7 1/3 innings. He would not get the decision but the Nationals took the wild and sometimes surreal 16 inning marathon, 6-5.

Yordano Ventura threw 7 strong innings, allowing 3 hits and 1 run as Kansas City cruised past Baltimore, 6-1.

They all owned baseball on April 24, 2016.
