Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 6/14/16

P- Madison Bumgarner (vs. Milwaukee Brewers): $13,800. Bumgarner is the top pitcher on the slate for Tuesday and for good reason. First of all, he is facing the 21st ranked offense of the Brewers. Second, he is 7-2 this season, with a 1.88 ERA, and 99 strikeouts in 86 innings pitched. Third, he is pitching in his home park. Fourth, he will probably hit a home run to bolster his lead at some point in the game. This guy can do it all.

 

P- Brandon Finnegan (vs. Atlanta Braves): $8,100. Finnegan has been on a roll as of late. In hist past four starts, he has thrown at least 6.1 innings in each start. He now has seven quality starts in his 13 total outings this season. He will be facing one of the worst offenses in baseball on Tuesday, so this shouldn’t pose a threat to Finnegan’s hot streak.

P- Zack Greinke (vs. Los Angeles Dodgers): $11,200. Greinke will be facing his old team on Monday. In only 42 career at bats against Greinke, the Dodgers’ lineup is batting .238, with 9 strikeouts, and a .273 OBP.

P- Ian Kennedy (vs. Chicago White Sox): $9,300. In 78 career at bats against Kennedy, the White Sox’ offense is batting .244, with 20 strikeouts, five RBIs, and a .272 OBP.

Lorenzo Cain got 2 hits including a home run that sparked the comeback rally as the Royals swept into first place with a 5-4 win over the White Sox.

Wilson Ramos reached base 4 times, homering and driving in 4 runs as the Nationals pounded the Cardinals, 10-2.

Rich Hill struck out 9 Tigers over 6 1/3 innings, giving up 5 hits and earning the 4-2 decision in Oakland.

Clayton Kershaw pitched brilliantly into the 8th, allowing 4 hits and striking out 10 Mets over 7 2/3 innings. He was inexplicably pulled from the game and the bullpen coughed up his lead. The Dodgers would take the game in the 9th, 4-2.

MLB Power Rankings 2016: Week 7 – May

MAY 15, 2016

Well not much has changed from this week as compared to last week.  Detroit carried its free fall to 4th in the AL Central, the Yankees took 5 of 7 contests – and 7/10 in their homestand to save their season for now.

Miami and Philadelphia continue to stick around in the NL East, and the Giants and Dodgers finally had winning weeks to make the NL West Division Leader respectable.

Nobody looks scarier right now than the Boston Red Sox offense, who led by David Ortiz, Jackie Bradley JR. and Xander Bogaerts, plated 10 runs or more in 5 of the last 6 games, after going their 1st 32 games without doing so.

I am still awaiting for a Jays big winning streak.  Houston has not played winning baseball since the 1st 6 weeks of the 2015 – and are tending to resemble the 2007 Tampa Bay Rays more than anything.

All offense and little pitching and defense.

There is nobody struggling worse than Logan Morrison, Russell Martin, Carlos Gomez and the consortium of LF’s in Anaheim! Recently bouncing out of this list are Jason Heyward and Chase Headley.

We are nearing the quarter pole and rapidly approaching Memorial Day Weekend, so it is not early anymore.

J.A. Happ threw a shutout into the 9th, finishing with 8 2/3 innings, 3 hits, no runs and 7 strikeouts as Toronto blanked San Francisco, 4-0.

Ryan Rua went 3 for 5 including a 3 run go ahead homer in the 8th inning that capped a wild 13-11 comeback by the Rangers over the White Sox.

Mike Leake threw 8 strong innings, allowing 1 run, 1 walks and 6 hits to lead the Cardinals past the Angels, 8-1.

Matt Carpenter homered twice in the Cardinals 8-1 clobbering of the Angels.

MLB Power Rankings 2016: Week 6 May

MAY 8, 2016

Disclaimer:  We based these rankings on best strength to win the World Series.  Therefore some teams that have an easier division to play in, with the least path of resistance to the postseason overall may be ranked a lot higher than a club who is equally talented, yet may play in a juggernaut of a division.

Rank – Team Record (Last week rank) (Up down) (W – L Record Last week)

(1) (1)  Chicago Cubs (E) (24 – 6) :  A real bad day for the Cubs is battling with a team like Washington on Sunday, to see whether or not they are going to sweep them or go 3 – 1 in a series.

Yep, they swept the 4 game set in a 13 inning walk off HR by Javier Baez – to cap a 7 – 0 week. They are on pace for about 129 wins right now.

Depth of the Starting Rotation is looking solid with Jake Arrieta, Jon Lester, John Lackey, Jason Hammel (Killer J’s) and Kyle Hendricks.

Hector Rondon is not even needed in most leads, with the team almost at a +100 differential through 30 games,

(2) (3) Chicago White Sox (+1) (22 – 10) ( 4 – 2):  Chris Sale is 7 – 0, and may go Ron Guidry (circa 1979 on us).  If anyone will win 25 games in a year, it would be him or Jake Arrieta.

Bob Welch won 27 games in 1990 for the A’s was the last guy to do that.

Has anyone noticed that Brett Lawrie has an OBP closer to .400 – than his usual .310 – .320?

Jose Quintana is finally receiving some run support.  If Todd Frazier and Jose Abreu start hitting for BA, than look he the hell out.  We could see a “Windy City” World Series for the 1st time since 1906. Read the rest of this entry

Kansas City Royals State Of The Union For 2016

Back to Back AL pennants and this years World Series Winners. They are the biggest favorite to win their respective division so far on the board. The KC franchise has most of the core nucleus all heading for Free Agency before the 2018 season. If I were a fan of this club - I would be okay with the team rebuilding after this, but for now to throw all chips in and try to cash in on a chance for a small dynasty. Dayton Moore and the Brass should use any one of their Minor League Players to acquire the next piece or 2 to make that happen in 2016 and 2017.

The Royals are back to back AL Pennant winners and the reigning World Series Champions right now.  Furthermore, they are playing in the most winnable Division in the Majors right now.

Kansas City were the 1st real small market club to win the World Series since the 2003 Marlins club took home the Fall Classic that year.

Just like the 2014 winter, the club will sustain losses between the end of the year to Spring Training the following year.

The door is not closed on Alex Gordon yet, however I don’t think it is in the clubs best interest to pay a 9 figure salary to a guy who is already 30.

KC has already seen Ben Zobrist sign with the Cubs, Johnny Cueto with the Giants, and Greg Holland will not pitch at all in the 2016 season with Tommy John Surgery recovery, and certainly not for the Royals.

Dayton Moore has done a decent job acquiring talent though.  The team resigned Starter Chris Young, and they added one time Royals Closer Joakim Soria.

The window is not just for 2016 – as the club only stands to lose back up Catcher Drew Butera following next year, but also for 2017. Read the rest of this entry

Who Owns October and Who Owns the 2015 World Series (#WOO and #WOWS) Tallies Updated For November 1, 2015

RON VESELY/MLB PHOTOS

RON VESELY/MLB PHOTOS

The Royals earned their crown as 3 of their 4 World Series wins were won in the 8th or later.

What a strange ending.

Now comes for the final entry of Who Owns October and Who Owns the World Series.

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From November 1st, World Series Game 4:

Receiving 1 WOO’s and WOWS

Luke Hochevar gave the Royals 2 critical shutout innings in the 10th and the 11th where a single Mets run would have forced a game 6. He allowed no hits and walked just 1 and earned the World Series clinching victory in relief for Kansas City, 7-2.

Eric Hosmer  broke the Mets shutout with a double in the 9th and dashed home to score the tying run on a wild play with 2 outs in the 9th.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s and WOWS

Curtis Granderson led off the game with a homer and later scored on a sacrifice fly. In the end, the Mets would collapse in the 9th and lose in the 12th to the Royals, 7-2.

Matt Harvey took a World Series saving shutout into the 9th inning, striking out 9 along the way. He finished with 8 plus innings, 5 hits, 2 runs and 2 walks but would get a heart breaking no decision as the Royals rallied to beat the Mets in 12 innings, 7-2.

Who Owns October and Who Owns the 2015 World Series (#WOO and #WOWS) Tallies Updated For October 28, 2015

The Royals are in control! And now the Sully Metrics of October get a little more complicated.

I will continue to figure out Who Owns October.Time to figure out who owns October!

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

But the World Series deserves its own stats. WOWS (Who Owns the World Series.)

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter. The WOWS total will be kept separately. Each game now counts towards both tallies.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 28th, World Series Game 2:

Receiving 1 WOO’s and WOWS

Johnny Cueto pitched the first AL complete game victory in the World Series since 1991, allowing 2 hits and 1 run and giving a weary bullpen the night off as the Royals cruised to a 7-1 victory over the Mets.

Alcides Escobar tied the game with an RBI single and broke it open with a 2 run triple to lead Kansas City to a 7-1 thumping of the Mets.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s and WOWS

Lucas Duda was the Mets offense, collecting their only 2 hits and driving in their only run as they got crushed by the Royals, 7-1.

The ALCS and NLCS are both on their way!

Time to figure out who owns October!

Each winning team for every post season game gets a pitcher and a hitter who earn a full WOO (Who Owns October.)

And at my discretion, I award a 1/2 WOO’S to a worthy player on the losing team.

At the end of the post season, we will see who had the highest WOO total as a pitcher and a hitter.

A complete description of the rules can be found HERE.

From October 17th. ALCS Game 2 and NLCS Game 1:

Receiving 1 WOO’s

Matt Harvey pitched into the 8th, finishing with 7 2/3 innings, 2 runs, 4 hits and 9 strikeouts to beat the Cubs 4-2 and give the Mets a 1-0 lead in the NLCS.

Kelvin Herrera gave the Royals the shut down inning they needed by striking out a pair in the 8th and setting up the 6-3 win against the Blue Jays.

Mike Moustakas tied the game with an RBI single and opened it up with another run scoring hit in the 8th to help the Royals come from behind against Toronto, 6-3.

Daniel Murphy homered to give the Mets an early 1-0 lead and made a diving play to end the 4-2 victory over the Cubs.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s

Starlin Castro hit a game tying double in the 5th but it would be as close as the Cubs would get as they fell to the Mets, 4-2.

Jon Lester pitched into the 7th and kept the Cubs in the game. But the Mets would get to him and Lester would be saddled with the 4-2 loss.

Troy Tulowitzki went 2 for 4 including an RBI double in the Blue Jays 6-3 loss to the Royals.

Jacob deGrom did not have his best stuff but he gutted his way through 6 innings, striking out 7 and allowing only 2 runs to earn the Mets series clinching 3-2 win over the Dodgers.

Daniel Murphy  pulled off the gutsy steal of third that set up the tying run and then homered off of Greinke for the go ahead run as the Mets stunned Los Angeles 3-2 and won the Division Series.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s

Zack Greinke pitched into the 7th and finished with 9 strikeouts and 1 walk over 6 2/3 innings, allowing just 3 runs to score. He would be saddled with a tough luck 3-2 loss as the Mets eliminated the Dodgers.

Justin Turner capped a brilliant Division Series with 3 more hits, including 2 doubles, and a stolen base to finish with a .526 average. He would be stranded each time he reached base and the Dodgers lost 3-2 to the Mets.

A throw back from the catcher gone wrong, Canadians gone nuts, Rangers infield gone bad and a bat flip heard from Canada started the day. Johnny Cueto adding tens of millions of dollars to his off season value ended the day. The ALCS is set and the state of Texas has a lot of reasons to be sad.

Johnny Cueto retired the last 19 batters he faced, going 8 innings, with 2 hits, 2 runs and 8 strikeouts to clinch the Division Series for the Royals, 7-2 over the Houston.

Jose Bautista doubled home a run and then hit the tie breaking dynamic three run homer that led the Blue Jays to a hair raising 6-3 Division Series clinching win over the Rangers.

Alex Rios singled and hit a go ahead 2 run RBI double in the 5th that put the Royals up for good to beat the Rangers, 7-2 and win the Division Series.

Marcus Stroman pitched 6 strong innings, allowing 2 hits, 1 walk and 4 strike outs. He did not get a decision but set up Toronto’s 6-3 clincher over Texas.

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s

Cole Hamels pitched into the 7th, allowing 2 earned runs over 6 1/3 innings, striking out 8. The Rangers errors were his undoing as he got a hard luck 6-3 loss in Toronto.

Rougned Odor  collected 2 hits and alertly scored on a deflected throw from the catcher and briefly gave the Rangers the lead. The Blue Jays would come back and win, 6-3.

Luis Valbuena homered and gave the Astros an early 2-0 lead.  The Royals would come all the way back and win the game 7-2 and clinch the Division Series.

For the first time since 2009, a team other than the Giants or Cardinals will represent the National League in the World Series. And the Cubs have people in Chicago dreaming of their first World Series appearance since 1945. Meanwhile Clayton Kershaw forgot it was the post season.

Clayton Kershaw changed the narrative with a dominating 7 inning, 3 hit, 1 walk, 1 run, 8 strikeout performance and earned the season saving 3-1 decision for the Dodgers over the Mets.

 

Hector Rondon became just the fourth Cubs pitcher in history to clinch a post season series as he threw the final scoreless inning and recording the Division Series ending save over St. Louis, 6-4.

Kyle Schwarber got 2 hits including a towering homer to help the Cubs clinched the Division Series, 6-4 over St. Louis.

Justin Turner smacked a 2 run double that was the difference in the Dodgers 3-1 series tying victory over the Mets.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s

Bartolo Colon pitched a pair of shutout innings in relief to keep the Dodgers from padding the lead. The Mets bats went silent and they lost 3-1.

Daniel Murphy hit a home run that accounted for all of the Mets scoring in their 3-1 loss to the Dodgers.

Stephen Piscotty reached base twice including a 2 run homer. But in the end it was not enough as the Cardinals fell to the Cubs 6-4.

From October 12th. AL & NL Division Series:

Receiving 1 WOO’s

Jake Arrieta did not have his best stuff. But his 9 strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings was enough to earn the 8-6 Cubs victory over St. Louis.

Travis d’Arnaud broke open a close game with a 2 run homer, finishing the game with three hits, three runs scored and three RBI as the Mets demolished the Dodgers 13-7.

Wade Davis threw a 6 out save, squelching any hope for a Houston comeback and sealing the 9-6 victory for the Royals.

R. A. Dickey allowed 5 hits, 1 run and no walks over 4 2/3 innings. He was taken out before he was eligible for the win, but was pitching just fine in Toronto’s 8-4 win against the Rangers.

Matt Harvey may not have looked like an ace, but he pitched well enough to win. He struck out 7 in 5 innings, allowing 3 runs, 2 earned and got the 13-7 decision for the Mets over the Dodgers.

Eric Hosmer went 2 for 5 with a homer and 3 RBI and helped the Royals dizzying comeback against Houston, 9-6.

Kevin Pillar collected 3 hits including a homer, driving in 3 to help the Blue Jays stay alive in the series, 8-4 against Texas.

Jorge Soler  reached base 4 times, including a homer, driving in 2 and leading the Cubs in an unexpected slug fest win, 8-6 over St. Louis.

 

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO’s

 

Shin-Soo Choo got 3 hits and scored twice in Texas’ 8-4 loss to the Blue Jays.
Carlos Correa went 4 for 4 with a double and a pair of homers, driving in 4, but also made an error in the Royals 9-6 come from behind victory in Houston.
Adrian Gonzalez reached base 3 times, including a homer, in the Dodgers 13-7 loss to the Mets.
Jason Heyward doubled and homered, driving in 2 of St. Louis runs but they came up just short against the Cubs, 8-6.
Lance McCullers pitched into the 7th allowing 2 hits and 2 runs over 6 1/3 innings, striking out 7 along the way. The Astros bullpen would collapse, however, and Kansas City would take the game, 9-6.
