Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – February 2, 2017

maxresdefault

Tom Brunansky made a great catch to clinch the 1990 AL East Division for the Red Sox. I remembered looking for a place in New York to watch the game. And comedian Mike Donovan recorded the catch on video. Today those two actions would be taken for granted. In 1990, they took determination to do.

It is a modern technology episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast.

Here is the clip of Mike Donovan’s video.

MLB Doubleheader Master Schedule In 2017

Best Source of Information for all 30 MLB Ballparks - and network of stadium afficionado's

Best Source of Information for all 30 MLB Ballparks – and network of stadium afficionado’s

First off, if you have never been to one of the 30 MLB Parks, we don’t advise on doing a doubleheader as part of your initial experience with the venue.  2 Games in one day takes a lot of travel,planning, and receiving the utmost experience in a stadium requires time.

However, if you are already versed in a park, than we are giving you a list of all doable Doubleheaders for the entire 2017 Calendar MLB season,

Most of these are within 2 to  4 hours away from each other (if not a shorter distance.)

In my lifetime of ballpark chasing, I have now done almost 100 Doubleheaders as part of my journeys.  The more baseball in a day, the better I feel.

In the meantime, consider visiting my buddy Craig’s website ballparkchasers.com – and for Park Guides to every cathedral in the MLN!  If you have any questions about going to the park. hit my up – mlbreports@gmail.com Read the rest of this entry

MLB Interleague Master Schedule In 2017: AL Looking To Speedbag The NL For A 14th Straight Year

AL vs NL

We go over this every season, but I am shocked to not see that much coverage on the issue.  The American League has absolutely thrashed on the National League in Interleague for the last 13 years.

Don’t tell me this is an anomaly.  This is a massive trend.  Plus no, the answer is not to eliminate MLB Interleague to level out the playing field.

I am already not going to watch the ALL – Star Game this year because it doesn’t mean anything.  Yes. I may be in the minority of the game actually being worth something in the MidSmmer Classic.  For those keep scoring at home, the League that actually won the All Star Game incredibly played 3 less games than the loser thanks to MLB’s brilliant (insert sarcasm here) 2 – 3 – 2 format.

But I guess no one else remember’s guys high fiving each other in the dugout once they were lifted in the ALL – Star Game, so they could catch a plane.  I will watch the HR Derby, and that is it.  I digress. Read the rest of this entry

You Could Try To Attempt A World Record By Going To All 30 MLB Parks In 25 Days In 2017 By Driving!

baseball-map-framed-with-plaque

So I have done about everything there is to do in for World Records in going to all the 30 MLB Parks.  I was able to hit all 30 MLB Parks in just 23 Days during 2012, besting my own 2009 record of 30/24.

The only way I could have done anything more substantial was to do what my idea was in 2015.  I went to 224 MLB Games in all the 183 Days of MLB Action – live at all 30 MLB Parks, spanning the entire season – and showing up at a ballpark every single day.

I am now 40 years old and don’t feel like doing this anymore, but every year I put out a schedule for all 30 MLB Parks in the forms of a record.

I honestly don’t think that I would top 30 MLB Parks in 23 Days since there is practically never any schedule that would allow that to be attempted.  If someone on this globe wants to take a run at – I welcome it.

However, my buddy Josh Robbins holds the Ground Record (all 30 MLB Parks) done by land – in just 26 Calendar Days during the 2008 season.) Read the rest of this entry

The season kicks off with a trio of games in Tampa Bay, Arizona and St. Louis on Sunday Apr 2, 2017 – and the last home opener will be at the new ballpark in Atlanta (SunTrust Stadium) on Friday Apr 14, (7:35).

Dear Santa: An Open Letter To Saint Nick From All 30 MLB Teams Fanbases

It is time for our yearly letter to head to the north pole.  Perhaps the 'fat old jolly' guy will respond promptly at the 2016 Winter Meetings. NY Yankees:  They need to speed the clock up like Back To The Future 2.  The Pinstripers are resetting for the 2019 season and beyond Bryce Harper era.  Based on how good the Red Sox Winter meetings have gone this far, you have to know there will also be a lot of Yankees 27 World Series Rings to Boston's 8 on a T-Shirt scoreboard.

It is time for our yearly letter to head to the north pole. Perhaps the ‘fat old jolly’ guy will respond promptly at the 2016 Winter Meetings.

The Bronx Bombers will also ask for their former Captain to please make more appearances in the public eye so they can milk the retiring of Derek Jeter‘s #2 on May 14, 2017 for about the next 6 months in a viable smokescreen to their 2017 performance.

Boston:  Can we ask that Richard Simmonds become Pablo Sandoval‘s personal trainer all offseason?.  For a guy who had more broken belts than hits in 2017, Sandoval can re-write his Boston legacy by proving what he can do when they are in the 2017 playoffs.

There also needs to be a discounted rack at Fenway Park for all of the S-Medium shirts that may have been there for the recently departed Yoan Moncada.

The Red Sox are always the clubhouse leaders in big tall lanky pitchers who herk and jerk when throwing, so can we ask the home broadcasting network for extra wide lenses.

MLB Fantasy Daily (DFS) Picks For DraftKings – 5/3/16

A jose altuve washington post

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

2nd Lineup (Look to hit on the Astros again tonight @ Minute Maid Park)

Last night was burned by Dallas Keuchel not pulling his weight on the mound.  I am laying off Collin McHugh tonight, as I feel there is to be lots of runs scored against the Twins – with Alex Meyer on the bump, and McHugh toting an over 6 ERA.

I also am feeling the Nationals breaking out the lumber versus Chris Young, and in particular Bryce Harper, who has had a slower 7 day stretch after a torrid pace the 1st 3 weeks.

I am still going to use the Buster Posey, Hunter Pence tandem versus Jon Moscot.

In order to field a huge amount of firepower, that comes with a Jose Altuve, Carlos Correa, George Springer stack versus Meyer, I used bargain bids of the night in Matt Carpenter ($3900) and Brandon Moss ($2700) against 2nd year man Aaron Nola. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Fantasy MLB Picks (DFS) For Draft Kings 5/2/16

Houston starts a huge homestand on Monday versus the Twins and rookie RHP Jose Berrios.   I am going with a 4 man offensive stack, and coupling that with Dallas Keuchel throwing at home, where he was 17 - 0 last year in his own park.

Houston starts a huge homestand on Monday versus the Twins and rookie RHP Jose Berrios. I am going with a 4 man offensive stack, and coupling that with Dallas Keuchel throwing at home, where he was 17 – 0 last year in his own park.  It is time for the “Stros to play with desperation.  They begin play tomorrow at 6 Games already behind the Rangers.

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

Last week we were keying on the Tigers to have a better luck with their lot of hitters, and while I am still on that bandwagon for week 5 of play, I am going hard on the Astros this next stretch of play.

It is imperative that Houston begins the long journey back to respectability.  How better than to start than with the AL worst team in the Minnesota Twins?

I am also high on the San Francisco Giants on Monday night.  Buster Posey hit a HR on Sunday, and maybe he will show some power again at the Great American Ball Park.

The Braves play in New York to start off their week, and I am continuing the theme of playing against them every night with the opposing pitcher.

Good thing that Bartolo Colon is only listed at $6700.

I will be aiming heavy opposing the Phillies – with the St. Louis Cardinals in the next couple of days too. Read the rest of this entry

MLB Fantasy Daily (DFS) Picks For FanDuel – 4/30/16 + Bonus 2nd Lineup

fanduel

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

The Tigers have definitely heated up their lineup in the last week – and are perhaps still vastly underrated on FanDuel right now. Looking to capitalize on low values for Miguel Cabrera, Justin Upton and J.D. Martinez.

I also believe in the NY Yankees getting the better of Rick Porcello on Saturday with LHB Brett Gardner and Brian McCann.  I added Starlin Castro to the fold at Fenway Park. 

For some reason, the Yankees do well at Fenway for batting anyway. Plus I can’t think that Porcello will keep up his success either.

There is a lot of frontline pitchers throwing on Saturday, so I am steering clear of a a ton of cash on FanDuel.  I do love Francisco Liriano vs the Reds.  Heck, I love anyone against the Reds – who are starting their freefall.

The Yankees and Tigers are kind of an old unconventional duo for a couple of stacks, and that is what I am hoping for.  I may play a Chase Field lineup as well – and just call it a day. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Fantasy MLB Picks (DFS) For Draft Kings 4/29/16: Lineup 2

chase field 2

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

Chase Field does not get the recognition it deserves right now as an absolute scoring machine.  There have been a ton of 10 run game efforts put forth by the D’Backs and their opponents so far this year.

Outside of Coors Field, it is a must play for at least one lineup every night.

So if there is no game in Colorado to do a roster, I am switching it to Arizona if possible. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Fantasy MLB Picks (DFS) For Draft Kings 4/29/16

Buster Posey

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

Welcome to an awesome strategy putting forth for a DraftKings lineup Friday.  I have compiled a list of 2 hitters back to back in the heart of the lineup for 4 separate clubs, that are opposing opposite hand pitchers.  All four teams I am using guys for are on the road.

I am showcasing the Blue Jays vs Drew Smyly (Joey Bats and EE), the Giants vs Steven Matz (Hunter Pence and Buster Posey, although they may be 4/5 in the lineup), the Nats versus Mike Leake (Bryce Harper and Daniel Murphy) and finally Trevor Story and Nolan Arenado will hit against Robbie Ray.

By picking the road participants solely in the lineup, I am ensuring each batter will hit for the 9 Innings.

Since we are playing DraftKings, the pitchers we are to select aren’t going to receive 12 pts for a win, but I am still taking superior clubs – with the Cubs over the Braves, and the Pirates host the free falling Reds. Read the rest of this entry

MLB DFS Fantasy Draft Picks For DraftKings – 4/28/16: 2nd Lineup (Coors Field Factor)

Coors Field is a beautiful ballpark and often ranked in the top 10 amongst extreme ballpark chasers. The park even has $4 Rockpile tickets.

Coors Field is a beautiful ballpark and often ranked in the top 10 among extreme ballpark chasers. The park even has $4 Rockpile tickets.  It is also a haven for DFS wagering.

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

We are going to run a daily feature of a 2nd lineup every time there is a game played at Coors Field.  Lets face it, whatever you did yesterday would not have mattered much unless you had Andrew McCutchen in your roster.

This park continues to serve up fantasy points galore.

So with loading all of the players for stacks between the Rockies and Pirates Thursday (Juan Nicasio @ Tyler Chatwood) I left off the Catchers as who knows who will play on a matinee game on getaway day.

I found a couple of gems in order to save some cash to Start Jake Arrieta as well.

The 1st player is A.J. Pierzynski – who holds a 400 BA lifetime versus Clay Buchholz, and will most likely start.

Has anyone been following this Brandon Drury kid out of Arizona?  He can play 2B/3B and OF – and has a 3 Slash so far of .298/.317/.526 – and is perfectly priced at $2200.

Then I used Tyler Wilson at home for the Orioles ($4800) against the White Sox.  Chicago just swept the Jays and should be due for a letdown .  Baltimore is 7 – 1 at home thus far on the season.  Wilson actually won his last start versus the Royals in KC.

Since I only spent a total of $10.200 on those guys. it left me $39800 for the remaining 7 players.  Bang, Now I can afford Arrieta, and roster 4 Rockies and 2 Pirates in my Coors Field mandatory lineup

MLB DFS Picks For FanDuel 4/28/16

Bryce Harper had dialed long distance 2 times in 7 career AB versus Phillies Starter Aaron Nola, whom he will face Thursday afternoon at Nationals Park.  It has been a slow week for the Nats offense - and I believe they are due to break out for some runs tomorrow.

Bryce Harper had dialed long distance 2 times in 7 career AB versus Phillies Starter Aaron Nola, whom he will face Thursday afternoon at Nationals Park. It has been a slow week for the Nats offense – and I believe they are due to break out for some runs tomorrow.

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

While I love Jake Arrieta throwing versus the Brewers on Thursday, I will reserve to play him on Draft Kings, as I would rather roster a bunch of hitters instead.

The options came down to either use Tanner Roark or Clay Buchholz, and it came down to price.  Buchholz has not thrown well this year and costs $900.  He also pitches at Fenway Thursday.

Roark was nails in his last start on Saturday, doling out 15 K’s at home versus the Braves.  Since I stacked on on 3 of the hitters being Nats, it is a nice chance to rake in some points.

In order to secure Bryce Harper,  I am using A.J. Pierzynski in the Boston vs ATL game.  He is a solid veteran. – and holds a .400 BA in 15 AB versus the Red Sox veteran.

I almost won a bunch of dough with this exact same lineup Wednesday, as I had David Ortiz, Dustin Pedroia and Xander Bogaerts – with pitcher Steven Wright.  They all combined for about 120 PTS.

My Nats lineup of guys didn’t fare as well and cost me.  I will play it again and just slightly tweak it.  I can’t see the Phillies continue to win series like this.

 has 5 hits in 7 AB versus Aaron Nola so far, with 2 jacks.  Anthony Rendon also has done yard work in limited duty, with 3 hits – including his HR in 8 AB.  Daniel Murphy is 2 – 5 against Nola. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Fantasy MLB Picks For Draft Kings 4/28/16

JON LAVENGETTO/MLB.COM

Trey Rose (Featured BBBA Fantasy Baseball Writer/Owner – dynastydigest.sportsblog.com) 

Note: There are only 8 games on Thursday, which means the match-ups are very limited. There is also a very good chance of rain for the following games, so pay attention to the forecast: Phillies vs. Nationals, Pirates vs. Rockies, Athletics vs. Tigers.

P – Jon Lester (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): Through 4 starts in 2016, Lester has been absolutely domin

ant. In 27.1 innings pitched, he has a 1.98 ERA, 23 strikeouts, 5 walks, and a 2-1 record. The Brewers’ offense has struggled this season. They are currently ranked as the 25th ranked offense in Major League Baseball.

Lester will be throwing off of his home mound on Thursday as well. All of these factors should work in Lester’s favor.

NOTE: The Chicago Cubs game was postponed on Wednesday night, so Jake Arrieta may take Lester’s spot on Thursday, and if that is the case, Arrieta is a must add.

P – Tanner Roark (vs. Philadelphia Phillies): Roark has been a pleasant surprise for the Washington Nationals this season. In his first 4 starts, he has thrown 24 innings, with a 2.63 ERA, 24 strikeouts, 11 walks, and a 2-2 record.

In his most recent start, he threw 7 innings against the Minnesota Twins, giving up 0 runs, striking out 15, and walking 3. He has a favorable matchup against the Phillies on Thursday, so he is a great start in daily fantasy baseball.

MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings – 4/27/16 – 2nd Lineup (Coors Field Factor)

Coors Field is still a hitting haven. While the averages have all dipped approximately 10% since the Humidor was placed into the facility over a decade ago, it still remains the premiere place for any of the MLB'ers to bat. Some of the organizational players will not hit as good on the road, with playing in the NL West, in cavernous parks like Dodger Stadium, Petco Park and AT & T Park, however the weight will only affect their overall numbers away from the thin air. Historic players like Larry Walker and Todd Helton displayed good road numbers, despite their gawdy home statistics, however they will never be looked in the same eye.

Coors Field is still a hitting haven. While the averages have all dipped approximately 10% since the Humidor was placed into the facility over a decade ago, it still remains the premiere place for any of the MLB’ers to bat. It is also the best place to set MLB Daily Fantasy Rosters based on lineup stacks.  Colorado has led the home averages in all but 2 years out of their 23 year existence for home batting average.

We are going to run a daily feature of a 2nd lineup every time there is a game played at Coors Field.  Lets face it, whatever you did yesterday would not have mattered much unless you had Andrew McCutchen in your roster.

This park continues to serve up fantasy points galore.

I absolutely am stacking versus Jon Niese, who owns a 7.94 ERA at Coors Field in 4 Game Starts.  Hello Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story.

I think the Pirates are due for an offensive letdown tonight, and will choose top of the lineup hitters from the Nationals and Cubs to fill the roster instead.  Give Me Bryce Harper, Daniel Murphy, Dexter Fowler and Anthony Rizzo.

Look for the Jays to salvage game three of this series against the Sox.

My process for picking Nick Tropeano has to be for value to load all the hitters.  I wouldn’t use him in FanDuel, but Draftkings only offers 4 points for the win.

I did go with Steven Wright on FanDuel as my only chucker. Read the rest of this entry

MLB Daily Fantasy Picks DFS For FanDuel 4/27/16

Team Stack #1 includes the Nats 1, 2, 3 and possibly #5 or #6 hitter with Michael Taylor, Anthony Rendon, Bryce Harper and Jayson Werth. Washington will face off against the Phillies RHP Jeremy Hellickson,

I am all for thinking that Jake Arrieta will continue to deal with the rest of the pitchers, but he is so overpriced on FanDuel, that it will kill the rest of your roster.  Yes his PPG is astronomical, and the experts will say to always use he or Clayton Kershaw on days they are pitching.  I won’t do it, and then split next to nil with the rest of the punters.

I love betting against the Braves each and every day  – and will keep the tradition going for probably the whole year here. Steven Wright is at home versus the powerless Braves.

By using that guy, I am able to stack two lineups with the Red Sox and Nationals, where I can use David Ortiz and Bryce Harper on my roster.

Using the Washington squad minus Daniel Murphy was necessary to implore the Xander Bogaerts, Dustin Pedroia and Ortiz move.

The Nats should still hit those guys 1, 2, 3 and 5 tomorrow, or maybe Werth at 6 vs Jeremy Hellickson.

Bryce Harper was walked 3 times on Tuesday – and you can count one a free pass about once a game right now. Read the rest of this entry

These teams have combined for 8 out of the last 20 World Series wins (in 10 appeareancs – but at least one of them had represented in the AL during the playoffs for every year since the WildCard was alotted – until 2014 saw that come to an end. The last time neither team participated in the postseason prior to that was 1993.  The Yankees ended up making the Wild Card Game in 2015 to start a new streak.  The Bronx Bombers are struggling and aging rapidly, while Boston tries to see a bunch of new players all gel into a club that could contend.  They are the ESPN Sunday night game on May 1st.
