Results: Strasburg did, in fact, throw an excellent game. Not a perfect game, a la Matt Cain, but great nonetheless. His line was 7IP, 5H, 2BB, 2ER, and 10K’s. It’s a great daily fantasy baseball pitching line. That said, there were two shutouts (Masterson and Westbrook). Strasburg did lead the day in strikeouts though. Oh, and Stras did get the win. As usual, my pitching predictions were much better than my hitting.
Daily Fantasy Baseball Picks
- “Safe” usually isn’t safe in daily fantasy baseball. That said…
- Stephen Strasburg at home vs. the DRays. I’m playing on Fanduel tonight. I think he strikes out double digits. And he is pithing against Chris Archer, making his first big league start.
- Fun fact: Strasburg was the first to 100 k’s this season. Tommy John what?!
- Justin Morneau – poor guy, eventually he is going to be only an occasional player because of the concussion issues. But not today. Today he’s 11-27 lifetime with 2 hr’s and 11 rbi’s off Erik Bedard.
- Starlin Castro – 3-4 with a dinger yesterday. 4-9 lifetime v. struggling Floyd.
- Cheaper Nats hitters – Flores, Lombardozzi, and especially…
- Mike Morse – he homered yesterday, I believe, and we’re ganging up on Archer
Pick of the Day
- Morse. Value. Power. Questionable opponent.
