The L.A. Dodgers are on a historic run it is incredible what they have done. In their last 50 games they are 43-7. That is ridiculous and has to be one of the best runs in all of sports. This is all happening with Kershaw and Gonzalez on the DL. Gonzalez is going to want to play when he gets back which will be an interesting for the Dodgers as there is no room for him in the lineup.
We have a full slate of games with some bonus baseball with a double header in the Kanas City.
Milwaukee Brewers @ Tampa Bay Rays – Chris Archer takes the mound for the Rays who is having a great year. He hasn’t faced many of the Brewers which shapes up well for him. Archer is a strong pitcher and has great command and should strike out a ton of batters in this one. None of the Brewers are on the MLB hot list right and Eric Sogard is on the cold list batting .067 over the last week.
Targets: Archer, Duda, Longoria
New York Yankees @ Cleveland Indians – This game stayed low yesterday as the Yankees edged out the Indians 2-1. I like this game to stay low go again as two of the teams top pitchers take the mound. Severino is having a great year for the Yankees. He is 3-0 in his lat 3 starts with a .047 ERA with a 1.11 WHIP. On the other side Carrasco gets the call who got roughed up by Boston. Look for him to bounce back today and shut down the Yankees who’s bats have gone away. I like the Indians at home in this one as Carrasco should come back big, but taking Severino won’t be the worst play.
L.A. Dodgers @ New York Mets – The Dodgers have been beating up on the Mets all week. Today Ryu gets the call for the Dodgers who isn’t having the best year. However he should have great day against the Mets. Reyes is ice cold, Walker is ice cold and d’Arnuad is ice cold. Cespedes isn’t hitting the long ball and the Mets are struggling. Look for Ryu to be an undervalued pick.
Targets: Ryu, Puig
Chicago White Sox @ Boston Red Sox – The Red Sox have strung together a 5 game win streak and now have a 4 game lead over the Yankees. Fister takes the mound for the Red Sox who was great in this last outing however isn’t the greatest pitcher. Boston has to lose at some point and today looks like the day. Although they won’t go down with out a fight as their bats have woken up.
Targets: Moncada, Delmonica, Rendon
Toronto Blue Jays @ Houston Astros – Although Stroman is on the mound I love the Astros in this game. Alex Bregman has been red hot for the Astros over the last week as he his hitting .378 with 3 home runs. We know the damage that Altuve, Correa and Springer bring. The Astros will be too much for Stroman to handle. There is always an ace that everyone has that will get lit up and you hate for not taking the opposing team. Well this is that game, stack as many Astros as possible.
Hoffman-COL-SP- Hoffman doesn’t have the best numbers but he averages 11.8 points a game and is playing the Phillies. That could be a steal for your line up as the Phils are terrible.
Bellinger-LAD-1B- Bellinger is only $4500, I know that isn’t cheap but for a player of his skills thats a steal. They hit 5 fingers of of the Mets last night look for them to beat them up tonight as Bellinger will shine in the Sunday night baseball.
Delmonico-CWS-3B-A player I targeted above, is under valued batting .368 with 1 home run in his 5 games played this year. He has a limited sample for the White Sox but against Fister a good hitter should thrive and that is exactly what Delmonico is.
