Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 11, 2017

We live in a world where the Yankees played the Indians… one team was a group of scrappy new comers and the other was the World Series bound super power… and the scrappy new comers won. And the roles are reversed. Didi Gregorius homered twice off of Corey Kluber and one of the great upsets in recent playoff history was complete.

Meanwhile Stephen Strasburg has his critics and guess what? HE ANSWERED THEM!

So who owned 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 11

2017 American League Division Series Game 5
2017 National League Division Series Game 4:

Receiving 1 WOO

Didi Gregorius homered twice, driving in 3 and set up the shocking Yankee 5-2 clinching victory in Cleveland.

 

David Robertson threw 2 2/3 no hit shutout innings, stopping the Indians best rally and setting up the Yankees 5-2 win.

Stephen Strasburg struck out 12 Cubs over 7 shutout innings to earn the 5-0 decision for Washington.

Michael Taylor launched a back breaking grand slam in the 8th inning as the Nationals blanked the Cubs, 5-0.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Jay Bruce reached base twice, scoring a run, in the Indians season ending 5-2 loss to the Yankees.

Jon Lester came out of the bullpen to throw 3 2/3 innings, striking out 3 and gave up 1 hit, 1 walk and was charged with a single run in the Cubs 5-0 loss to Washington.

Andrew Miller struck out 5 Yankees over 2 relief innings of shutout ball but the Indians fell short, 5-2.

Ben Zobrist doubled but was stranded in the Cubs 5-0 shutout at the hands of the Nationals.

Who Owns October (#WOO) Tallies Updated For October 6, 2017

(Wally Skalij / Los Angeles Times)

The Dodgers scored as many runs before a single batter was retired as the Red Sox have in 2 whole games. Stephen Strasburg went from throwing a memorable masterpiece to a heartbreaking loss and Joe Girardi made one of the great managerial blunders in post season

Yup… it was an amazing day of baseball as only the playoffs can give us.

So who owned 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 6
2017 National League Division Series Game 1
2017 American League Division Series Game 2:

Receiving 1 WOO

Kris Bryant broke up a no hitter in the 6th with a 2 out RBI single and would later come around to score as the Cubs blanked the Nationals, 3-0.

Carlos Correa homered, doubled and walked, driving in 4 as the Astros rolled again over Boston, 8-2.

Yan Gomes got on base 3 times including a dramatic walk off single in the bottom of the 13th in Cleveland’s wild 9-8 win against the Yankees.

Kyle Hendricks threw 7 shutout innings to earn the 3-0 decision for the Cubs over Washington.

Clayton Kershaw pitched into the 7th, allowing 5 hits and striking out 7 at the Dodgers took the opener against Arizona, 9-5.

Dallas Keuchel struck out 7 Red Sox in 5 2/3 innings to get the 8-2 victory for the Astros.

Josh Tomlin came out of the bullpen in the 12th and retired all 6 Yankees he faced, striking out 3 and setting up the walk off 9-8 finale in Cleveland.

Justin Turner homered in the first inning, reached base 4 times altogether, driving in 5 runs to lead the Dodgers past Arizona, 9-5.

 

Receiving 1/2 WOO

Zack Godley was pressed into service in the second inning and gave the Diamondbacks 5 frames of relief, allowing 2 earned runs and striking out 5. But it was too little too late as Los Angeles took the game, 9-5.

J. D. Martinez got 3 hits, including a homer, in the Diamondbacks 9-5 loss to the Dodgers.

David Price came out of the bullpen to throw 2 2/3 shutout innings and stop the bleeding. Nothing else worked however and the Astros clobbered the Red Sox, 8-2.

Gary Sanchez hit a startling 2 run homer off of Kluber in the first inning and added another hit. But the Yankees had an equally shocking meltdown and fell in 13 innings to the Indians, 9-8.

Stephen Strasburg took a no hitter into the 6th and allowed just 2 unearned runs and 3 hits over 7 innings, striking out 10 Cubs along the way. He would be charged with the hard luck 3-0 decision for the Nationals.

Christian Vazquez reached base 3 times and scored but the Red Sox were once again pounded by Houston, 8-2.

Should The Red Sox Extend Chris Sale For 3 Or More Years Right Now?

We will be delving a lot more into all team payrolls on the MLB Reports as part of our regular features from now on. One of the things that I have been thinking about a lot is the Red Sox Payroll. I wonder if they shouldn't just extend Chris Sale for an additional 3 years. Yes it is risky with a guy who throws with a whipping motion, but you have a lot to consider on this. First you could offer him a 3 Year deal extension worth about $90 MIL total. It would be an awesome move to align Sale on the same years of service with David Price. IMAGE by Sports Mockery

Chris Sale will enter the year at age 28, and while his current deal will take him to age 31 before he hits Free Agency prior to the 2020 season, maybe the Red Sox could capitalize on him maybe seeking some security.

I am suggesting the starting point of a AAV of $30 MIL.  Maybe the club adds a Mutual Option for the 4th and 5th year of the extension with a Buyout, but this is a smart concept from the Red Sox perspective.

Never in their long standing organization have they had such rich young superstars just entering the league at the same time.

Mookie Betts/Jackie Bradley Jr – and Xander Bogaerts are both under Team Control until 2021 and 202o respectively- with Betts/Bogaerts as perennial MVP contenders.

Even better than that are Andrew Benintendi (2023) and Blake Swihart (2022) rounding out a nice nucleus of talent held for cheap on the longterm. Read the rest of this entry

With No Top 50 ALL – Time Contracts Signed This Winter – Who Is Next To Make The List?

Signing Cespedes would not take care of all of New York's postional roster troubles, and injuries may ultimately ravage them again for the next campaign. Many of the Mets Starters are coming off health concerns in 2016. I am not sold they should be placed at such a valuable odd until they sign some players.

Signing Cespedes  has signed the biggest contract of the offseason thus far at 4 YRs/$110 MIL.  it is ranked tied for 60th ALL – Time even though the Annual Average Value is tied for 2nd ALL – Time among position players.  With power having been devalued and a firm new set of penalties for Luxury Tax Threshold Abusers, it may take until the winter of 2018 – heading into 2019 – for another player to ink a contract that places them in the top 50 ALL – Time Salaries.

The winter has seen a lot of great Free Agents sign like Yoenis Cespedes, Aroldis Chapman, Dexter Fowler, Kenley Jansen, Ian Desmond, Mark Melancon and Edwin Encarnacion, however none of them were historic by any means.

While Cespedes’s $110 MIL pact over 4 years is $27.5 MIL per year, which ties him for the  2nd best AAV ALL – Time for a position player with Alex Rodriguez, (trailing Miguel Cabrera‘s 8 YR/$248 MIL extension that started in 2016) – only brings him in for a tie for about 60th on the ALL – Time Biggest Contracts list.

To crack the top 50 list ALL – Time right now, you need to bring in a deal that makes at least $120 MIL for the life of the contract.

During last years offeseason, David Price ($217 MIL), Zack Greinke, ($206.5 MIL) Jason Heyward, ($184 MIL), Chris Davis, ($161 MIL), Justin Upton ($132.8 MIL) and Johnny Cueto ($130 MIL) all inked pacts in excess of that.

Early in the season, Stephen Strasburg shocked the world with his new 7 YRs/$175 MIL deal soon afterwards. Read the rest of this entry

Washington Nationals Payroll In 2017 + Contracts Going Forward

People can throw stones on Mike Rizo all they want- but the GM has never lost a trade ever, and he ensured the club reeeived

People can throw stones on Mike Rizzo all they want- but the GM has never lost a trade ever, and he ensured the club received a Starting CF in Adam Eaton to the tune of only $38.4 MIL over the nxxt 5 years – even if it cost a boatload of prospects.  This is part to compensate balloon payments on the horizon that are due to both Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg.  The club is projected to spend around $154 MIL on salary in 2015, but that is without a proven closer.  The real question is how far the club will go in money to win in the next 2 seasons before Bryce Harper is a Free Agent?

With the rest of the MLB landscape just obliterating Mike Rizzo for the Adam Eaton trade i will defend him on the caveat that he spends the full amount of available funds saved – in order to take a run at the World Series for the next 2 years while Bryce Harper is still on the club.

At this point. it is a long shot that the DC franchise will be able to retain the 2015 NL MVP’s services as the Nationals already have Max Scherzer and Stephen Strasburg to historical contracts (both top 20).

Washington sees Jayson Werth finally come off the books after this next year.  While he will have earned $126 MIL from 2011 – 2017 in his total contract, the club can’t point to this as the worst deal on the club currently.

Ryan Zimmerman is still owed at least $47 MIL over the next 3 years – and has seen his production slip for the last few years.

The Max Scherzer contract does pay him $210 MIL over 7 years (in which he is now in year 3)  – however this is deferred over 14 years, so the club can conduct more flexibility in their contracts for the next few years.

The Nats Pay A Steep Price For Eaton: The New CF Has A Team Friendly 5 Year Deal Which Is The Key To Salvage The Trade

For a second straight week we love the Nationals with the best odd value of the week. They have some financial flexibility to bring in a few more ALL - Star Caliber players and also possess the prospects in order to get it done. If you believe (like I do)

Mike Rizzo is getting scorched for the fact he gave up the #3 and #38 top MLB Pipeline Prospects.  Throw in their #6 prospect – and you can see how people have said the Nats GM orchestrated a bad deal.  I am not one of those people.  This was a move that is more financial based than even the young players.  If Washington is still able to get a top line Closer, and add several more pieces, while dancing around the Luxury Tax Threshold of $195 MIL – I am down with this trade if they re-spend the cash on another Starter that is MLB ready this season.

For the majority of the last week we heard the Nationals were trying to land Andrew McCutchen in a trade, but they shocked the world on Wednesday by acquiring CF Adam Eaton from the White Sox in exchange for three RHP (Lucas Giolito, Reynaldo Lopez and Dane Dunning). 

These three guys represent the club’s #1, #3 and #6 prospects.  Giolito was ranked #3 overall and Lopez #38 by MLBPipeline.com

This seems like a lot for just one player – but you have to look at several factors here.

Mike Rizzo landed a player that just turned 28 a few years ago.. He is the leadoff guy the team has needed ever since the departure of Denard Span.  This is so critical when you consider the Nats will likely only have Bryce Harper for the next 2 years. Read the rest of this entry

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 8/12/16

P- Stephen Strasburg (vs. Atlanta Braves): $12,400. In two starts against Atlanta this year, Strasburg owns a 1.98 ERA. He is 15-2 on the year, with a 2.80 ERA, and 169 strikeouts. He is putting up a Cy Young caliber season and the Braves won’t stand in his way on Friday.

P- Joe Musgrove (vs. Toronto Blue Jays): $8,300. As many of my readers well know, I am quite a fan of Joe Musgrove. He is incredibly efficient on the mound, issues very few walks, and has an above average strikeout rate. Over the last seven games, the Blue Jays have struck out 70 times (4th worst in baseball) and have a .686 OPS (ranked 19th in baseball).

Daily Fantasy MLB DFS Picks For DraftKings 8/1/16

P – Stephen Strasburg (vs. Arizona Diamondbacks): $12,900. With such a small slate today, Strasburg is easily the best option at pitcher. He is averaging 10.93 strikeouts per nine innings this year, which is huge for daily fantasy. The Diamondbacks offense has struggled over the past seven days, so hopefully Strasburg can take advantage.

P – CC Sabathia (vs. New York Mets): $7,600. In 116 career at bats against Sabathia, the New York Mets are only batting .216, with a .248 OBP, and 35 strikeouts. In his last outing, he was pretty impressive against a very tough Astros lineup, so the Mets should be a cake walk.

Daily Matchups for 8/1/2016

Pitcher

STUD

Stephen Strasburg– Stras comes into this matchup having a dominating season so far. He’s pitched 127 innings allowing only 90 hits while striking out 155 and walking only 36. He is sporting a 2.68 ERA with 14 wins. He draws a great matchup against the Diamondbacks who he has been able to hold to a .230 BA (14 for 61)  while giving up only 1 HR to the current roster. He’s averaging 47.47 FP this season and coming off of a great performance against a good Indians’ team where he pitched 7 innings, allowing only 3 hits, 2 walks, 7 Ks picking up the win and 54 FP. We are looking for another 50+ FP outing from him tonight.

Kyle Hendricks If you asked me at the beginning of the season if I would ever put Hendricks into the stud category I would most likely just laugh in your face. But here we are, Hendricks coming into Monday’s matchup with 9 wins, 116 IPs, allowing 91 hits, 32 walks, striking out 103 and a 2.39 ERA. He had a down game his last one against the White Sox where he pitched 5.2 innings, allowing 6 hits, 2 walks, 7 Ks and only 29 FP. Tonight he draws a great matchup against the Marlins who he has held to a .207 BA (12 for 58) with a 19.7 K%, 10.6 B%, and striking out 13 Marlins’ bats. He has given up 10 singles, inducing 19 groundouts, 7 flyouts, 6 walks and 3 pop outs. He hasn’t given up a HR to this current Miami roster and he comes in as a great option if you don’t want to pay up for

MID RANGE

Danny Salazar

Eduardo Rodriguez

VALUE

CC Sabathia Why do I like him? Well, the Mets struggle against lefties and he has held them to a .222 BA (26 for 117) in his lifetime. Their most feared hitter (besides the oft-injured Cespedes) is the switch-hitting Asdrubal Cabrera and he left with a left knee injury on Sunday. CC is coming off a terrific game against Houston where he pitched 6 1/3 innings, allowing only 4 hits, 2 walks, striking out 5, picking up the W and 41 FP on FanDuel. He’s more of a tournament option but he’s got a 27.6 K%, 4.1 B%, while striking out 34 current Mets, inducing 29 groundouts, 15 flyouts, and only allowing 21 singles. Can’t trust CC in cash games on this small slate, but love him for a tourney or two.

The Reasons Why Stephen Strasburg Is A Top-Five Pitcher In Baseball

As good as Stephen Strasburg was in the 2nd half of the 2015 year, ( 6 - 2 with a 1.90 ERA post ALL - Star), he has continued to assert himself as a top 5 pitcher in the MLB with his 8 - 0 start in 2016

As good as Stephen Strasburg was in the 2nd half of the 2015 year, ( 6 – 2 with a 1.90 ERA post ALL – Star), he has continued to assert himself as a top 5 pitcher in the MLB with his 8 – 0 start in 2016 – with a 2.79 ERA for`10 GS in his time this campaign so far.  The 27 Year old RHP converted his recent success into a 7 YRs/$175 MIL contract extension – and is full value for it if he throws like this. 

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

Stephen Strasburg is a completely different and much more dominant pitcher this season. In 2015, Strasburg struggled with injuries. This led to an 11-7 record, 3.46 ERA, 155 strikeouts, 26 walks, and a 2.81 FIP in 127.1 innings. So far in 2016, Strasburg is 8-0, with a 2.79 ERA, 86 strikeouts, 18 walks, and a 2.29 FIP in 67.2 innings. Something has clicked and Strasburg is thriving in 2016.

Strasburg’s elite strikeout rate is what propels him to a top-five starting pitcher in fantasy baseball. He is averaging 11.44 strikeouts per nine innings in 2016. On top of his strikeout rate, he is also limiting his earned runs, but his FIP suggests that his ERA should reduce even more.

His mid-to-upper 90’s fastball and filthy breaking pitches are keeping hitters off balance and limiting consistent contact. From a statistical standpoint, see the link below that compares some of the top pitchers in the game and helps depict why Stephen Strasburg is a top-five pitcher in baseball:
