Following the promotion of Alex Bregman and David Dahl, Andrew Benintendicould be the next star prospect called up to the big leagues. The Boston Red Sox organization could use an everyday outfielder in left field, and Benintendi could be the answer.
Benintendi was drafted seventh overall by the Red Sox in the 2015 MLB Draft. Since stepping on the field as a Red Sox prospect, Benintendi has done nothing but impress. He has proven his bat is above average, possesses above average speed, and he has very good defense in centerfield. Over the past two years, he has started every game in centerfield, but the Red Sox have switched him to left field over the last two games. Many people believe this position change is prepping one of their top prospects for a move to the big leagues.

One of the biggest blunders made by many gamblers is betting against themselves. We are going to simplify the process, so if you win, you can really win – none of this barely break even nonsense.
Our new Draft Strategy is now here. Please read after the post. You can use our formula for your own wanted and given stacks and pitchers. This process wheels them all in alignment.
Now here is what we are going to do for today’s MLB DFS FanDuel style.
We Will Give You – Daily
3 – 7 team stacking options ( We are going to draw most of our players from these squads).
3 – 5 Pitching candidates (High level, midlevel and budget).
If you are looking for daily picks in roster form for DraftKings exclusively, our DK preferred site is dynastydigest.sportsblog.com
If you are looking for more players themselves than stacking options (as oppose to full lineup cards with a lot of advance for both FD/DK, plus the additional website of www.fanpicks.com) – please visit we refer you to dailyrotohelp.com (for player picks all day)
P- Felix Hernandez (vs. Pittsburgh Pirates): $8,600. The Pirates offense has struggled over the last seven days. In that time span they are batting .237, with a .297 OBP, and a .678 OPS. In 109 career at bats against Felix, the Pirates offense is batting .165, with a .229 OBP, .249 slugging percentage, and 35 strikeouts. He is coming off an injury and a rough first start, but his career numbers against the Pirates makes me very confident in this pick.
P- Ervin Santana (vs. Atlanta Braves): $7,800. In 139 career at bats against Santana, the Braves’ lineup is batting .223, with .251 OBP, .454 slugging percentage, and 28 strikeouts. Santana has been on a great hot streak recently. Over his last six starts, he owns a 2-1 record, and a 2.03 ERA.
The National Baseball Hall of Fame’s swing got a whole lot more powerful and a whole lot sweeter over this past weekend. Mike Piazza and Ken Griffey Jr. graciously accepted the opportunity to forever be immortalized as baseball greats, which they both rightfully deserve.
After watching their induction speeches (which I highly recommend and can be done hereand here), it’s clear to see that pairing these two together in one Hall of Fame class couldn’t have been more perfect.
Not because they were two of the most well known players in the 1990s and early 2000s, but because their stories were so different, yet so similar at the same time. This was evident before they took the podium in Cooperstown to give one of the most difficult speeches of their respective lives. But by the time they were finished, seeing the parallels between them was undeniable.
Many people believed the New York Yankees were going to be in “sell” mode this trade deadline, but today might have confirmed that notion. Reports say the Yankees have dealt four-time all-star, Aroldis Chapman, to the Chicago Cubs for what is believed to be four players. These players include the Cubs’ best prospect, Gleyber Torres, Billy McKinney, Adam Warren, and one other. I’m sure the Yankees weren’t too keen on rebuilding, but it is too hard to pass up this offer the Chicago Cubs made.
Robin Ventura has been White Sox manager longer than many Presidents have been in office. Yet despite being in charge of a losing team coming apart at the seams, he is still employed.
Meanwhile I am not happy with the Cubs looking to deal for Aroldis Chapman because of his domestic violence past.
