Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings – 7/27/16

PJon Gray (vs. Baltimore Orioles): $10,500. The Orioles have been horrendous over the last seven games. They are ranked last in OPS with a .599. Meanwhile, Jon Gray has been absolutely filthy over his last few starts. In his last three starts, Gray has struck out at least eight batters and he has only given up three runs in 20.1 innings pitched. Over his last 11 starts, he owns a 2.93 ERA.

P – Matt Moore (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers): $7,500. Over his last nine starts, Moore has thrown at least six innings. He is facing a Dodgers’ lineup who has struggled mightily against left-handed pitching. In 831 at bats against lefties, the Dodgers are batting .218, with a .295 OBP, and a .350 slugging percentage.


Why Both the Yankees and Cubs Needed to Make the Chapman Trade

Aroldis Chapman is now a member of the Chicago Cubs. It had long been speculated that Chapman would be on the move at some point, as the Yankees currently sit 7.5 games back in the AL East, as well as 4.5 games out from the second wild card spot with a record of 50-48 and while this deficit may not seem too large, the Yankees have question marks all over their lineup and rotation. 39-year-old Carlos Beltran, who like Chapman is in a contract year, has been the team’s best hitter.  The rotation has failed to find consistency beyond Masahiro Tanaka. It all adds up to the Yankees -25 run differential on the season; the other three teams ahead of them in the AL East all have a run differential of +40 or better. The Chicago Cubs, on the other hand, lead the entire league in both record, 59-38, as well as run differential, at +150.

The deal that has been agreed to is as follows:

New York Yankees Receive:

  1. SS Gleyber Torres
  2. RHP Adam Warren
  3. OF Billy Mckinney
  4. OF Rashad Crawford

Chicago Cubs Receive:

  1. LHP Aroldis Chapman

New York’s Side of the Deal:

For the first time since I can remember, the Bronx Bombers have decided to sell pieces from their major league roster at the trade deadline rather than make a run at a championship. GM Brian Cashman picked a great time to do so. Just about every contender in the league is in the market for relief help, and Aroldis Chapman, a rental player who will become a free agent at season’s end, just so happened to be the best one available. As a result, the Yankees were able to demand a return package that was far and away greater than the one they had to give up for Chapman in March.

To continue reading about why the Cubs and Yankees needed to make the Aroldis Chapman trade, please visit Off The Bench.

Losing Chapman Bittersweet For Yankees Fans

For most teams in the Yankees’ situation, becoming a deadline seller would be a no-brainer. But New York has long suffered from ‘Yankee Pride,’ a mental block that prevented the front office to from making the right decisions for the franchise going forward. Trading Aroldis Chapman is the first true signal that they might have gotten past it.

Seemingly since the close of the World Series in 2009, the team’s last championship, the New York Yankees have been running out lineups of increasingly aging, immobile, progressively unwatchable former superstars, capable of winning 85 games– no more, no less.

Of course, that’s perception more than reality– the Yankees finished in second in 2010 and won the AL East in 2011 and 2012, making it to the ALCS in 2012– but for Yankee fans accustomed to winning, or at the very least, exciting baseball, a la the Core Four Era, it’s been a bit of a drag.

Since 2013, for instance, the Yankees have finished no closer than 6 games out in the division, making the playoffs for one measly day, while the Red Sox hoisted their third championship banner of the 2000’s. It’s been a pretty dramatic fall from grace.

But things seem to have come to a head this season. The team is in 4th place in the division….

 Daily Matchups for 7/26/2016



Noah Syndergaard- Thor has absolutely dominated the Cardinals in the 1 start he had against them. He held them to a .067 BA (1 for 15) with 5 strikeouts and 4 groundouts. He is the best pitcher on the slate in my eyes. We are projecting Thor around 45- 50 FP today. This is obviously a play from yesterday as this game got postponed until today.

Chris Tillman- I absolutely love Tillman here tonight against the Rockies. He’s held them to zero hits in 15 ABs with 9 strikeouts. Tillman comes into this matchup with 127 IP, 104 hits, 48 BBs, 108 Ks, a 3.18 ERA, and 14 Wins tied which is tied for the ML lead. He’s coming off a terrific outing against the Yankees where he pitched 7 innings allowing 4 hits while striking out 7. He ended up with 51 FPs. Tillman has lasted at least 7 innings in his last 4 games and should be able to do the same again tonight.


Marcus Stroman- He hasn’t faced the Padres much, but he has held them to 1 hit in 9 ABs with 3 Ks. The Padres struggle against RHP and Stroman is coming off his best outing of the season against Arizona where he lasted 8 innings, giving up 8 hits, with no walks and 6 Ks, the W and 51 FP on FD. I could see a similar outing out of him again tonight.

Steven Wright- This is more of a GPP option as he can easily give up too many runs to help a cash game. Wright has only seen the Tigers’ bats 10 times and has given up 3 hits but he is coming off his best game of the year where he pitched 8 innings, allowing only 4 hits, 1 walk, and 9 Ks against Minnesota and he took the win and 60 FP. He’s now got 4 straight wins.


Sonny Gray- This should be an under-owned GPP play tonight. I wouldn’t be surprised if it’s less than 5% owned. Gray has struggled this season with 101 IP, allowing 114, 38 walks, 80 Ks, and a massive 5.49 ERA. He’s actually dominated the Rangers in his career to a tune of .197 BA (29 for 147) with a 19.3 K% and 31 Ks and 4 HRs. I think he could be the sneaky play of the day.

Ervin Santana- Here’s another sneaky play that has a great matchup tonight. Santana gets to face the Braves who he has had success with. He’s held the current Braves’ roster to a .219 BA (25 for 114), with an 18.9 K%, 23 strikeouts and 22 groundouts but he has given up 6 HRs. I like him to be a sneaky pick.

MPS – US Presswire

It is a Tuesday and I am answering a question from superfan @CU8SFAN (aka Cubs Fan with an 8.)

I give a defense of the defunct stat “Game Winning RBI.” Yeah it is flawed and stupid, but it had its odd merits.

It is an “embrace the narrative” episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Adrian Beltre, Aaron Sanchez, Jay Bruce, Jeremy Hellickson, Javier Baez, Danny Valencia and Dallas Keuchel all owned baseball yesterday all added to their totals for Who Owns Baseball yesterday.

Adrian Beltre got 4 hits including 2 homers. The second one was a 2 out, 2 run, come from behind walk off shot to propel the Rangers to a 7-6 final over Oakland.

Aaron Sanchez threw 7 innings with no earned runs and 7 strikeouts to earn the 4-2 decision for the Blue Jays over San Diego.

Jay Bruce slammed a pair of 2 run homers to help the Reds sink the struggling Giants, 7-5.

Jeremy Hellickson threw 6 innings of 1 hit shutout ball. He did not get the decision but set up the Phillies 4-0 blanking of the Marlins.
