Monday Plays

YTD: 9-13  -3.20 units


1-2 yesterday.  Slow start.  2 plays.......


NYY +120
Cincinnati +100


Yanks hitting the ball, and CC has done well vs Detroit.  Someone has to win in Milwaukee tonight.  DeSclafani is a little under the radar, and Peralta been hittable.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Sunday Plays

YTD: 8-11  -2.10 units


1-1 yesterday.  3 plays.......


CWS +140
Baltimore +130
LAA -140



Think Quintana vs Greene is closer to coin flip than this price suggests.  Gonzo in good form, and done well vs the Sox.  Might be risky playing Richards here, but he's facing Feldman.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Saturday Plays

YTD: 7-10  -2.30 units


1-2 last night.  2 plays.......


Baltimore +120
Arizona +130



I'll grab the O's as a small dog to Buccholz.  Tillman been decent against the Sox.  Not buying Heston as a favorite.  Snakes get him for the second time.  Rubby has better stuff and better lineup behind him.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

YTD: 6-8  -1.40 units

 

 

0-2 last night.  2 plays.....

 

 

Atlanta +130

Oakland -110

 

 

Grabbing Teheran at a nice price.  Hutch has struggled at Rogers Centre.  Like Sonny Gray in this matchup.  Pitched well last year vs this group.  Contemplated the RL here, as I think Guthrie gets smacked around.  A's have bounced back with big numbers after their meager offensive showings this year.  Might add if line gets better. 

Leaning to Kluber and the Tribe on the RL as well, but hoping this line comes back down.  Twins have hit Kluber in the past, and somehow Pelfrey has had succes vs Cleveland.  Line opened curiously short though, IMO.  RL's are something I rarely played in the past due to my book not offering.  With a new shop now and they are available daily.  Will pick my spots.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Thursday Plays

YTD: 6-6  +0.60 units


1-2 last night.  2 plays......


Milwaukee +140
Philadelphia +130



Short card today, so grabbing two pitchers I like and going for a split.  That's really all I got.  Arizona is tempting with SF's current form and losing streak, but Bumgarner has held the Snakes in check.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Wednesday Plays

YTD: 5-4  +1.40 units


2-1 last night.  2 plays.......


Detroit +120
Oakland +110


Tigers crushed the only lefty they've seen.  Think Simon, with that lineup behind him, gives them a shot.  Initially leaned to McHugh and the 'Stros as they wore out left handed pitching last year, but they have yet to get the bats going.  Like Pomeranz and his strikeout potential tonight.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Tuesday Plays

YTD: 3-3  +0.10 units


1-1 yesterday.  2 plays.......


CWS +110
Detroit +120


Like Carrasco, but taking a shot with Quintana.  Tribe a little banged up early on, and the lefty could make it tough tonight.  Shane Greene is a guy that I am looking to back this season, especially at dog prices.  The Bombers are gonna miss this kid.  Lean to Iwakuma, but waiting to see if line will come down.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

YTD: 2-2  -0.10 units


2-0 yesterday.  2 afternoon plays.....


Washington +125
Colorado +120


Selling Porcello at this price vs Zimmermann.  Sox off Sunday night game, and facing the best pitcher they've seen yet.  Battle of rookies in SF.  I'll back Butler who has better stuff and the better lineup behind him.  Heston laying chalk, while he's really more of a stop gap.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Late to the party.  Having book issues.  Think I have something figured out.  Glad to be back.  2 plays tonight......


Tampa Bay +105
Seattle -105


Taking a shot with the kid against the Fish.  Haren finished last season strong, but declining in general.  Grabbing Walker on the cheap.  Like Pomeranz, but like Walker more.  Not excited about getting the worst of it for my first action of the season.  See what happens.

Wish everyone a profitable season.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Bears in better form.  Alexander will be missed.  Keep the points. Vols tough matchup for Hogs, especially in Nashville.  Think Tennessee hangs.  Have a couple leans for late games.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL

Baseball Keeper Question

Joey Votto or Chris Davis?  No round designation.  Who would you rather keep, and why?

I'm leaning to Davis.  Pretty fed up with Votto's injuries, his low HR totals, and lack of RBI's.  There are tons of guys out there that can hit 18 dingers, with 70 RBI's. 

Davis will hurt my average, but think I'm willing to make that sacrifice for HR's and RBI's.  He's in a contract year, and will have his meds again this year.

Normally I'm all about batting average, and typically avoid guys like Davis.  But the last two seasons I've struggled in the HR and RBI categories.  This is a 5x5 roto league.  All opinions welcome.

Favorite Coaches

I don't care what anybody says, college ball is all about coaches.  Who you guys like?  I'll post some of my favorites......


Bo Ryan
Tom Izzo
Tony Bennett
Jay Wright
Shaka Smart
Fran Dunphy
Billy Donovan


Coaches I can't stand........


Roy Williams
Coach K
Rick Barnes
Jim Boeheim
Tom Crean
Calipari

Just for the record, I'm a Syracuse homer cuz I grew up there.  I think they develop big men better than most.  I just don't care for Boeheim as an in game coach.  I'm a UNC fan, cuz a dude from my hometown played for Dean Smith back in the 80's.  Williams never calls the momentum changing timeout.  He prefers to let the kids figure it out.  Never understood that logic.  Calipari is slimy, but I think he's done a good job with the last two teams.  Sure, anyone can say it's easy to win with the best talent.  But it ain't that easy.  He's got the blue chippers playing defense, and playing as a team.  Easier said than done.

There is nothing like a college coach.  Have so much respect for all of them.  Who you guys like, or dislike?

1-1 last night.  2 plays.......


Nevada +8.5
Nebraska +9.5


Looks like a flat spot for Utah St.  They off a dog win OTR, and already beat these guys by 16 in their own gym.  Like Nevada to hang.  Huskers should go all out after getting trucked by PSU last time out.  Think they make it ugly and play inside the number.  See what happens.  Insight and comments always welcome.  BOL
