Plus I introduce a new metric, The Summer Score, to determine how good an experience a team gave its fanbase for the year.

There is a nearly full slate of games starting before noon, Pacific Daylight Time. Nothing is better than being a baseball fan on the west coast. I am going to be watching baseball for lunch!

The historically bad Marlins have almost caught the supposedly contending Nationals, and not because Miami has thoughts of winning the East.

The Yankees do not have a single player healthy on their squad and still can not lose. And Mike Minor somehow is a Cy Young Contender.

DraftKings (DFS) Daily Roster Lineups For Monday May 20, 2019

By MLB Reports

DraftKings has an awesome new game option called “Tiers”, It lets you select all your players without any salary cap per position all.  Instead, you pick one batter from 6 different boxes to choose from – in which 4 – 9 players appear per tier.  This is a great new contest selection for those who hate having to value shop 2 pitchers and all positions from 1B, 2B, 3B, SS, C and 3 OF positions.

Here is the strategy we are using for gameplay tonight.  The reason why we wheel all of our players with the other players in our lists is to maximize our chance to win a GPP

For every tier, we are ranking the top two players from each.  We will then wheel all of those players with each other for 16 – 64 total scenarios.  The key is to wheel all scenarios and then if a contest doesn’t fill the quota – you find a few other contests to do so.  

Today we are entering 37 rosters with a $5 entry fee (37 Max Rosters GPP, we will own 1.95% of the rosters.) into the Knuckleball tournament in which there are 1902 players – with a prize payout of $8K.

Mike Trout of Tier #1 will be implored on every single roster for the 1st 32.  Since we have 5 more rosters to play with we will put Alex Bregman into our best 5 lineups (free of Trout but with the others). Read the rest of this entry

The West Has Been Won While the East Is a Mess – Locked On MLB Podcast, May 20, 2019

The Astros, led by George Springer, and the Dodgers, with ace Hyun-Jin Ryu, may have already locked up the West for their teams.

Meanwhile, the Nationals and Mets might be getting new managers soon, I introduce “Marlins Minute” and ask a pizza etiquette question.
