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.

Steven Wright came to within a pitch of a complete game shutout, settling for a complete game with 1 run and 3 hits, giving the Boston the 5-1 victory over the Yankees.

Manny Machado hit a go ahead two run homer and a game breaking grand slam to help Baltimore crush Oakland, 11-3.

Ross Stripling held the Toronto lineup to 1 hit and no runs over 6 innings. He did not factor in the decision but the Dodgers took the game, 4-2.

Chris Herrmann homered twice, driving in 3 including the go ahead 2 run blast in the 11th to give Arizona a 5-3 victory in Atlanta.

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

MLB Daily Fantasy Picks DFS For FanDuel 4/26/16

Hunter Stokes (Chief Writer/Part Owner) 

Just like I wrote in my DraftKings piece, I am high on stacks versus Rich Hill of the A’s and Nate Karns of the Mariners.

I seriously couldn’t believe FanDuel still has Cabrera listed at $3400 tonight.  This is an absolute steal.

The Mariners do not play well at Safeco usually (are at 2 – 5 this year) – and face a tough task in facing 2015 AL Cy Young Winner Dallas Keuchel.

The ballpark doesn’t scare guys like George Springer, Carlos Correa or Jose Altuve. They are the road team, all hit Left Handed Pitching well, and I think it is time for the Astros to take off.

At least I have 2 games where stacking was present.  My hope is that Bryant and Puig both make up for being single picks.

MLB DFS Picks For FanDuel – 4/25/16

There is awesome value with the Detroit Tigers players on Monday.  You have Miguel Cabrera all the way down to $3700, Victor Martinez to $2600 and Justin Upton to $3000.  I have the Tigers 2 – 5hitters all lined up in a stack.

Against conventional wisdom, I have Carlos Gonzalez against a LHP.  With it being Jeff Locke, and CARGO hitting right behind Nolan Arenado, there would have been a nice 3 – 4 combo.  Except for than it would mean a weaker OF move with Nori Aoki, and Jose Iglesias at SS.

Now I get to use  J.D. Martinez, Carlos Correa and Kyle Seager instead of Arenado, Iglesias and Aoki.

When you can put together a lineup where all 8 guys have been ALL – Stars in the past, and are capable of doing some yard work, than this is exciting. Some of the guys are struggling for sure, but that is why they are priced so low currently.

Starting Pitchers 

Marcus Stroman vs White Sox, $8100

Ross Stripling vs Marlins, $7600

Rick Porcello vs Braves,  $7400

Team Stacks

Detroit Tigers vs Kendall Graveman

Seattle Mariners vs Doug Fister

Colorado Rockies vs Jeff Locke

Sample Lineup 

P – Rick Porcello, $7400

C – Victor Martinez,  $2600

1B – Miguel Cabrera, $3700

2B – Robinson Cano, $3700

3B – Kyle Seager, $3000

SS – Carlos Correa $4100

OF – Carlos Gonzalez, $4000

OF –  Justin Upton, $3000

OF –  J.D. Martinez, $3300


$34, 800, 000 ($200 Left)

Sully Baseball Daily Podcast – April 9, 2016

Bananas

Ross Stripling took a no hitter into the 8th and all Hell broke loose. Dave Roberts watched a logical managerial move blow up in his face as an exciting night of baseball turned bananas in San Francisco.

And that is the word of the day… bananas.

It is a padded room level crazy episode of The Sully Baseball Daily Podcast

Jordan Zimmermann, Brock Holt, Jacob deGrom, Starling Marte, Ervin Santana, Trevor Story. Tyler White and the incredibly unlucky Ross Stripling all added to their total of Who Owned Baseball.
