Steven Wright came to within a pitch of a complete game shutout, settling for a complete game with 1 run and 3 hits, giving the Boston the 5-1 victory over the Yankees.

Manny Machado hit a go ahead two run homer and a game breaking grand slam to help Baltimore crush Oakland, 11-3.

Ross Stripling held the Toronto lineup to 1 hit and no runs over 6 innings. He did not factor in the decision but the Dodgers took the game, 4-2.

Chris Herrmann homered twice, driving in 3 including the go ahead 2 run blast in the 11th to give Arizona a 5-3 victory in Atlanta.

They all owned baseball on May 8, 2016.

MLB Daily Fantasy Picks (DFS) For FanDuel – 5/9/16

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner)

In order to accommodate our Coors Field lineup, we are going to forego any expensive pitcher on Monday, and go with flamethrowing Aaron Sanchez of the Jays against Jake Peavy in San Francisco

Peavy has bee the ultimate gong show the last several outings, and despite being back in the comfort of AT & T – it will still be tough to tame the high powered Blue Jays

While I am going with the clubs second tier offensive players you could certainly skip picking the Coors Field game – and implement Jose Bautista, Edwin Encarnacion against Peavy.

I am using the top of the Rockies lineup to bludgeon Rubby De La RosaCarlos Gonzalez at $3900 vs a RHP at home might be the value play of the night.

It would be nice if Russell Martin could kickstart his offense this year  I keep playing him as a cheap option on fantasy – but he has failed to deliver  Like teammate Troy Tulowitzki though, at least he doesn’t cost much money.  The latter I refuse to play now until he goes over the Mendoza Line for BA.

Love Aaron Sanchez in a big ballpark with Kevin Pillar running the ball down in the OF.  The Giants have a decent lineup of LHB, but Joe Panik has been hurt, and Brandon Crawford not to his 2015 standards yet.  Brandon Belt does scare me, but he is a different hitter at home.

Sanchez can strike out players at least – which will be crucial for this play.

I will be checking to see if they do switch EE in at 1B for Smoak, in which case I would switch to underperforming Prince Fielder vs Miguel Gonzalez (for $2700).

MLB Power Rankings 2016: Week 6 May

MAY 8, 2016

Disclaimer:  We based these rankings on best strength to win the World Series.  Therefore some teams that have an easier division to play in, with the least path of resistance to the postseason overall may be ranked a lot higher than a club who is equally talented, yet may play in a juggernaut of a division.

Rank – Team Record (Last week rank) (Up down) (W – L Record Last week)

(1) (1)  Chicago Cubs (E) (24 – 6) :  A real bad day for the Cubs is battling with a team like Washington on Sunday, to see whether or not they are going to sweep them or go 3 – 1 in a series.

Yep, they swept the 4 game set in a 13 inning walk off HR by Javier Baez – to cap a 7 – 0 week. They are on pace for about 129 wins right now.

Depth of the Starting Rotation is looking solid with Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jason Hammel (Killer J’s) and Kyle Hendricks.

Hector Rondon is not even needed in most leads, with the team almost at a +100 differential through 30 games,

(2) (3) Chicago White Sox (+1) (22 – 10) ( 4 – 2):  Chris Sale is 7 – 0, and may go Ron Guidry (circa 1979 on us).  If anyone will win 25 games in a year, it would be him or Jake Arrieta.

Bob Welch won 27 games in 1990 for the A’s was the last guy to do that.

Has anyone noticed that Brett Lawrie has an OBP closer to .400 – than his usual .310 – .320?

Jose Quintana is finally receiving some run support.  If Todd Frazier and Jose Abreu start hitting for BA, than look he the hell out.  We could see a “Windy City” World Series for the 1st time since 1906. Read the rest of this entry

On Mother’s Day, I discussed three very different former Cy Young Award winners: The struggling David Price, the available Tim Lincecum and the hard hitting Bartolo Colon!

Plus, as a Sunday Request, I responded to this Tweet.

It is a “Show some love to your mother” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Bartolo Colon REALLY owned baseball.

Aaron Hill, Robinson Cano, Ian Kennedy, Marcell Ozuna, Jon Gray, Dallas Keuchel and Ian Kinsler also added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.

MLB Daily Fantasy Picks (DFS) For FanDuel – 5/8/16

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner)

If you listened to us yesterday, then you fared extremely well as we did.  We said to play Clayton Kershaw – and stack the Milwaukee Brewers vs Brandon Finnegan with Ryan Braun, Jonathan Lucroy, Chris Carter and oh yes…Aaron Hill.

These guys amassed 5 HRs between them with (Hill clubbing 3 HRs and adding 7 RBI – including a Grand Slam in extra innings), so yeah we won some serious coin on FanDuel.

I am feeling like going against the norm today for the sample lineup.

While I will use Jake Arrieta on Draft Kings, and with other roster, I am betting that he may have a bad day.  The Cubs tend to let down on Sundays, as they have recently losing a few weeks ago to the Rockies.

Chicago also may let down because they have won 3 straight versus the Nats .

Tanner Roark has pitched better of late, and in a crazy bizarro maneuver – I am going to place a few hitters (Bryce Harper, Anthony Rendon and Danny Espinosa) against Arrieta, and also implore Roark against the Cubs.

The difference between the Pitchers was $3800.  That is too much budget to help the offense.

I am also using a stack with the visiting Detroit Tigers at Texas and LHP Martin Perez.  The ‘Motown Boys’ still are bargain value for all of their RHB

In my mix are: Miguel Cabrera, Victor Martinez, Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez.

To round out my roster, I have hot hitting Rougned Odor, who is hitting lead off for the Rangers. Read the rest of this entry
