P – Zack Greinke (vs. San Diego Padres): $10,000. Greinke will face the San Diego Padres at their home stadium on Friday. Luckily for Greinke, he has dominated the Padres his entire career and the Padres home park is known as a great pitchers park.

In 136 career at bats against Greinke, the Padres offense is hitting .191 with 36 strikeouts. Greinke should get plenty of run support behind him from the DBacks offense to earn him the win on Friday.

P – Garrett Richards (vs. Minnesota Twins): $9,300. Richards will be facing the struggling offense of the Minnesota Twins on Friday. In his only start against the Twins at their field in his career, he threw 8.2 innings, with 7 strikeouts, and 2 earned runs.

Throughout his entire career, the Twins starting lineup has faced him in 48 at bats, totaling a .167 batting average, and 10 strikeouts.

The Twins are currently ranked as the last team in the Major Leagues when it comes to run production (only 13 runs scored in 2016, compared to the second place team with 20 runs), so this could be a great matchup for Richards.

P- Drew Pomeranz (vs. Philadelphia Phillies) $6,700. I am loving the price of Drew Pomeranz for Thursday. He is facing an offense who is not potent by any means and he has shown a small sample size of success against the Phillies throughout his career.

In only 16 at bats total, he is holding the Phillies to a .188 opposing batting average and 3 strikeouts. I know that isn’t a lot of history, but it’s some success. During his first start of the 2016 season, he threw 5 innings giving up 2 earned runs, walking 3, and striking out 7 at Colorado, which isn’t an easy place to pitch.

I love his K rate, but he must throw 6 to 7 innings to be a big asset on Thursday.

P- Ervin Santana (vs. Chicago White Sox) $8,100. Ervin Santana has dominated the Chicago White Sox lineup throughout his career. In 110 career at bats, the White Sox lineup is only hitting .182 against him with 22 strikeouts.

I expect another strong outing from Santana against a team who he has had no trouble with in the past.

C- Jose Lobaton (vs. Julio Teheran) In 15 career at bats against Teheran, Lobaton is hitting .467 with 2 home runs, 5 RBI’s, 3 XBH, and a .556 OBP. I love Lobaton as a cheap option assuming he starts.

Make sure to follow this game as there is a chance Lobaton doesn’t start considering he is the backup to Wilson Ramos. If he does, he could be a bargain buy at this price.

P- Phil Hughes (vs. Chicago White Sox) $7,300. Today I went with two mid-tier pitchers rather than paying an elite price for an elite arm.

Carlos Carrasco vs. Tampa Bay was the only arm that really appealed to me above Hughes and Lackey, but I rather take a price cut with Hughes and spend my money on my offense.

In 173 career at bats against Hughes, the White Sox offense is hitting .272 against him with 4 home runs, 11 RBI’s, and 36 strikeouts. I think these numbers point in Hughes’ favor, so I’ll stick with him today.

P- John Lackey (vs. Cincinnati Reds) $8,300. Lackey has dominated the Reds lineup throughout his career. In 101 total at bats, the Reds lineup is only hitting .228 against Lackey with 2 home runs, and 18 strikeouts.

Lackey is pitching at home for the first time, which should bring about lots of energy and excitement.

On another note, his run support should be plenty to get the win over the Reds, which will help contribute to his point total.

So I was really impressed with our readers putting forth the Baseball Hall Of Fame voting last month.  Additionally, we also put out some Division Winner polls.  The general consensus of what the landscaped was with (in terms of favorites) were pretty much on par with what the pundits have been calling.

The latest installment in our polls to keep you busy is one to who will win the World Series.  There are not many sports blog out there that have had the handicapping record as we have over the last few years.

I write a weekly post on the World Series Odds year round, and also have tackled the League Championship odds and Division Races.

In a few weeks we will start seeing season win predictions (for over/unders).  We will also do player performances on the campaign.

If that were not enough, we come to you with another season of MLB Shutout Survivor (Charting each team on how long they can avoid being blanked), and also MLB Runs Scoring Survivor ( doing a daily tally on all 30 MLB clubs going through all runs scored variations of 0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9 and 10 or plus – until each squad completes all 11 totals).

The MLB Reports also is going to be heavy into Fantasy Sports in 2016.  We are looking at putting out Daily Fantasy Rosters at Draftkings.com

Be on the lookout for your gambling/fantasy advice.

For now, take part in who will win the World Series Poll.
