Speaker 0 00:00:00 Ladies and John, you're listening to the fantasy alarm, lb DFS podcasting with host John IBA and James Grande.
Speaker 1 00:00:10 What's going on in VIN nation, John and Pehi with James Grande. Welcome back into the quick pitch lb DS podcast and live stream recording here for Thursday's five game main slate, James we've. We've had some tough slates to talk about before, if you are looking at the pitching right now, not great. I think maybe the biggest surprise is that SHA Manaya price below JT. Brewbaker uh, how far he has Lance of colors, top price guy, Carlos Carrasco miles Milo, up over nine. K. Yeah. I'm just jumping right into pitching because we got, it's gonna be a quick one, right? We're gonna, we're gonna breeze through this breakdown. What are your thoughts on what we got for pitching
Speaker 2 00:00:47 Here tonight? I mean, MC colors is the chalk let's face the facts. I think we're gonna see a lot of lineup start mauls, Carrasco colors, Milo, especially when you look at who we're facing here, I mean gets Cincinnati great
Speaker 1 00:01:02 Numbers from miles, Milo too. He pointed this up before 2 23 era at home this season.
Speaker 2 00:01:07 Yeah, he's been tremendous. And you know, the numbers against Cincinnati take with the grain of salt, cuz he's pitched twice in great American, right? And twice in great American he's been hammered he's through seven innings of one run ball against Cincinnati. The one time he was at home. So I think it's hard to go wrong with any of the top three when MC colors isn't walking guys, we could see, we saw what he can do against the angels. So give me give MC colors is the top option 105
Speaker 1 00:01:32 Pitches too. Love it. Love the hundred five there. And obviously he was trending out. We were in on McCalls in that last start too. You know, we're like just navigate trout. Well, he give him a home run to trout, but that was it. You know like, well
Speaker 2 00:01:43 That's eight straight pitchers did so like don't feel bad, Lance
Speaker 1 00:01:46 <laugh> right, exactly. And then we, again, we hit the mid tier JT brew baker he's okay. But I don't have any interests. I don't think, you know, in, in pitching him, Sean and I, I think this was like the match where we started stacking against him, like way back when was like Arizona during, when Arizona was like banging lefties and we're like, listen, Maria is not it. And how far he has fallen from being in an upper nine K we paid 10 K at one point for this guy back in may, then this last month, two starts ago under $7,000, 6,600 against the Dodgers 77 last start against Dodgers 76 today against Arizona. You can't play 'em you just can't do it, but you're on a small slate. So like maybe he'll be contrarian. You're looking at, at his VPP numbers around HISP numbers, but his matchup numbers against Arizona this year two starts 2 88 eras two and oh four,
Speaker 2 00:02:38 Four starts,
Speaker 1 00:02:39 Four starts rather. He is two and oh, rather in against them, you know, like again, not where I wanna go. We like a lot of these Arizona guys, so tough to go, but it's a five game slate. So we talked about how last time Dylan Bundy just seemly, always pitched, well, Cleveland knocked him around. Sure. Right? 12 hits, seven runs, three homers allowed once strike out. He doesn't really strike anybody out. He said, but he was avoiding damage. Sunny grace shut down Kansas city today. Maybe Dylan Bundy picks up some of that magic again, better at home this year, 3 81 era. And that includes that most recent start against Cleveland where he got lit up. Yep. Maybe it maybe temp fate with a di Bundy again, Daniel Lynch guys that we've, you know, at times have like, oh, he's like coming around, he's got some strikeouts. Then he gets hammered for four short starts. So like again, not really where we're looking to go, but it's a five game slate. He's 6,700 Kilion against Houston. We're not gonna play chase Anderson against St. Louis. Not really where we're looking to go. Dre Jameson is making his major league debut here
Speaker 2 00:03:41 Has not been great. But he also, again, he pitches in the PCL. So yeah,
Speaker 1 00:03:47 A hundred strikeouts in 114 innings
Speaker 2 00:03:50 Under 909 strikeouts. So close to a strikeout in
Speaker 1 00:03:53 Yeah. Near seven era and a near two whip.
Speaker 2 00:03:56 Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:03:57 Yeah. Not, not ideal.
Speaker 2 00:04:00 I think I would just going back, it's worth mentioning mania was the odd man out lately. Cuz San Diego does have just like a plethora of pitches, picture pictures when they're healthy. I'm considering it because what do we know about Arizona? They just have so many lefties, like all five other outfielders are lefties. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:04:18 And still Gar gets in the lineups.
Speaker 2 00:04:20 What true. It's spare. But it, you know, in September John. Yeah. So you know, two week sample, right? It's the four we're recording here about the clock's about to strike midnight and it's gonna be the 15th day, a 5 23 ops as a team. That's the second worst mark in the month of September against lefthanded pitching. So I don't know like, because
Speaker 1 00:04:43 Playing game slate. Right? So like you have, if you're not spending up and you're looking at that mid tier range, it's probably mania or Bundy for you. Right. Agreed. So agree. Who has the higher I'm sorry Shawn Manaya so Shawn Manaya I just don't think I'm gonna get there. I'm probably playing Maccas and Rasco and I think it's Miko last, right? Like
Speaker 2 00:05:00 I think majority of the lineups will. That's why I'm
Speaker 1 00:05:03 Saying like I'm many collars in there for now we'll figure out be to later agreed catcher, even smaller sample size right of player. You got the Casey guys at the top. You got Vasquez against Kilion. If you wanna go Kelly against an I 36 Gabby sand.
Speaker 2 00:05:17 That's a good spot.
Speaker 1 00:05:18 What do you got?
Speaker 2 00:05:19 I like that
Speaker 1 00:05:20 Kelly get me
Speaker 2 00:05:21 Right. And this is the breakout here. Yeah. Kelly. I mean, NIAS been a bad lefty. Kelly's Fe off lefty. So right.
Speaker 1 00:05:28 So again, there's not a lot of options that Gary Sanchez gets Lynch at 31.
Speaker 2 00:05:32 So I BVP five for 13 of the home run.
Speaker 1 00:05:35 Yep. There's not really a bad, there's not a punt guy that I'm seeing here. So
Speaker 2 00:05:39 I think it's, I think it's, I think you're right. I think the literally the three guys you mentioned are probably the only three guys. I
Speaker 1 00:05:47 Maybe I against Anderson at 29 just because uh, yeah, just because it's Anderson, he's hitting, I's hitting 2 97 with an eight 70 ops. His last
Speaker 2 00:05:56 10. Yeah. And there's been some power. The two, the double,
Speaker 1 00:05:59 He had two home run game. Yeah. Yeah. Or what's what is Lynch against righties that are Sanchez versus left?
Speaker 2 00:06:04 Terrible. This year. Sanchez is terrible against lefties, but Lynch righties 2 89, 800 ops 3 47. WOBA so good numbers there.
Speaker 1 00:06:12 Gary Sanchez is a righty. Only guy. He just hits
Speaker 2 00:06:14 Righties. Yeah. He's not heading left. This
Speaker 1 00:06:16 Year's face fastball. Right? Hand pitchers. That's the only thing.
Speaker 2 00:06:18 Yeah. That's fastball.
Speaker 1 00:06:19 Yeah. Uh, alright. First base position. Goldie against Anderson. Again, I wanna stack probably St. Louis here, but I don't know how to get to them if we're spending up. So, you know, it feels like Arizona's affordable. The more affordable stack, right? Like Walker and
Speaker 2 00:06:32 I think Minnesota's gonna be pretty affordable to against St.
Speaker 1 00:06:35 Lynn Miranda
Speaker 2 00:06:36 And Houston dude, Houston against Capri too. Like,
Speaker 1 00:06:40 Well, yeah, they're not gonna be cheap.
Speaker 2 00:06:42 Well Elle 36, Jeremy Penia, 46 Mancini 39, 11 Messias 38 Chaz. Macor they're good. I'm look. I'm just trying to is yeah. He's back. Yeah. He is back. Well, I'm with you on the Cardinals either way. I'm with you on the Cardinals are expensive, but I'm with you on wanting to stack.
Speaker 1 00:07:00 We'll see. We can find some value again. Stacking against Manay could be a thing if we're not gonna play him with Walker 40 VO B against his former team. Little revenge narrative at 41, maybe. I don't know. And then Miranda at 33 at first base feels like probably a direction for us to go. Cause we're gonna probably play career at shortstop too. Right? Against
Speaker 2 00:07:16 Lynch. Yeah. And Korea's on freaking fire David. So, so
Speaker 1 00:07:20 We'll see how we get there. Second base has Al tub at the top. We played him the other day, came through early, hit stolen bass. Our run scored McNeil gets brew baker here can tell Marte a lefty. Well, Gorman laid lead off again.
Speaker 2 00:07:32 Brandon Donovan. Oh,
Speaker 1 00:07:33 Donovan's been the one that's
Speaker 2 00:07:34 Been there and he's 33. He's even cheaper. True.
Speaker 1 00:07:37 We have the pies against a rookie. Didn't work for us. The last time we had this situation, you know, but Krono works at 38.
Speaker 2 00:07:43 That's a good price
Speaker 1 00:07:44 Donovan. There is at 3,300 was, has been leading off.
Speaker 2 00:07:49 You, do you believe in Tony Kemp magic again here, John or
Speaker 1 00:07:52 What? The colors? Probably not. Probably not, not really. A lot of value though. At second base
Speaker 2 00:07:57 Alejo Lopez has been really good for the reds. He's a switch hitter. He is been hitting in the middle of their lineup. Little power, little speed, 3 79 with a thousand ops over his last 10. I don't hate using people against Carlos Carrasco. Truthfully like Carrasco can be good, but Kasko gives up power against righties too. 2 84 rights are writing 2 84 against Carlos. KSKO three 30. WOBA they
Speaker 1 00:08:21 Gonna get from the left side?
Speaker 2 00:08:22 Well, they recall Diego Castillo. Sure. He's been in the lineup. He's all he did. When he, before he got sent down was at home runs. He had 11, 11 bombs. So just throwing his name out there too. Sure. I'm not against playing guys against Carlos KSKO cause he been very shaky.
Speaker 1 00:08:38 Third base position here. R I 59 Bregman at 57. Againsts a pian feels like a green light play for us there. Mid tier. I mean, or she is 2,800. If we wanted to stack Lynch again,
Speaker 2 00:08:52 I like for $100 more Emanuel Rivera. He's been bad lately, but lefty on the mound, Rivera is way better. 2 88, 360 6 Boulevard. Is
Speaker 1 00:09:04 There any what's the Lynch is probably paid. Played Minnesota. What's the, any BVP there for Lynch?
Speaker 2 00:09:09 Yes. Miranda four for eight with a home run. Karea is seven for 17. Four 12. Yeah. Pretty good. Or she oh, four, eight,
Speaker 1 00:09:17 Oh for eight figures.
Speaker 2 00:09:18 Gary Sanchez. One for nine Miranda. KARE, Kyle garlic, who probably is in the lineup only like only three guys would have like three for six with two, two RBI. Garlic only hits left he week. Yeah, we
Speaker 1 00:09:32 Get to so there's really not then a lot of value. Third.
Speaker 2 00:09:35 How? Think, I think it's Rivera.
Speaker 1 00:09:36 I thinks 33 has multi-position eligibility. We think he may start. Right. So yeah. That's a good one off rather. So
Speaker 2 00:09:42 Yeah. That's a good one. Well, unless they decide, oh Newbar hit home run let's on, on Wednesday. Let's lead him back off. Right? Cause obviously the Cardinals are like trying to figure things out right now.
Speaker 1 00:09:53 Short stop has Lenor wit Edmond, but we kind of, I think I've settled on Korea.
Speaker 2 00:09:57 Yeah. I think Korea I'm ready to lock KA in right now. He's he's scorching, huh?
Speaker 1 00:10:02 Yep. Just to continue down the list. If we don't go Korea though. Really? Not much. <laugh> there's not five games slate. There's not really anything there. So
Speaker 2 00:10:10 I'm okay with I'm okay. With Jeremy Pena. I don't necessarily hate that. Where is he? 46. He's bull. Yeah. He's 46. Like he's expensive. I'm honest.
Speaker 1 00:10:21 He hit second the other day.
Speaker 2 00:10:22 Yeah. I mean, and I'm also weirdly again, I told you I'm not afraid to attack cookie craft though. I mean, dude, O'Neil cruise. Maybe the best stretch of his season right now. Yeah. Or home runs in his last 10 games.
Speaker 1 00:10:35 Yep. Elite bat. So not
Speaker 2 00:10:37 Bad brief 26 average. He just drinks out. That's what he does. He like ornaments. If you could, I can get behind some pirates
Speaker 1 00:10:44 Outfield again. We said this was gonna be quick. Top three guys. All might not play Jordon Mata and Boxton. Mote bucks. And definitely not playing Jordon is day to day dealing with let's see line up maintenance purposes. He'll likely be in the line
Speaker 2 00:10:56 If it looks like. Yeah. It's the hand because they're he like was still struggling, but like he's like coming alive right now. So
Speaker 1 00:11:02 He had him and Tucker both lefties.
Speaker 2 00:11:04 Oh, love him. Both love
Speaker 1 00:11:05 O'Neal you mentioned we had played Brian Reynolds the other day at little Rockville ship he homework. So for the
Speaker 2 00:11:10 Homework dude, I'm telling you there's something to
Speaker 1 00:11:13 Cuz people will, I would assume people would be interested. I bet we have everybody plays in colors and then it's split RO ship between equal us. Andray are probably, or
Speaker 2 00:11:23 Probably I agree. I agree.
Speaker 1 00:11:25 A Soto at 49. He's just not doing anything. Line's just not doing anything. It'd be a great, hold on two, do something on a small slate, but I know we're just not doing anything. Is he any 39 McCarthy against a lefty? We don't really care that $3,800 jerks and pro profile. 37. We'll all. I don't mind playing pro far. Still. Nope. Nope. It's been really good. Where's our boy stone
Speaker 2 00:11:46 East like $3. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:11:48 I'm scrolling stone Garrett. 2,400 bucks.
Speaker 2 00:11:51 I mean in the lineup, the only thing it's like, so him and Kyle garlic are the same exact player on this slate. Right? It's like they both have upside, but they both might.
Speaker 1 00:12:00 Stone's having a lot better over season
Speaker 2 00:12:03 Fair. I'm just saying like, what they're both gonna do is they're gonna bat while there's a lefty on the mound. And then when the lefty comes off, they're gone.
Speaker 1 00:12:11 Do they take, do they pinch shake stone Garrett or does it just say he doesn't start unless
Speaker 2 00:12:14 There's left? I mean he, I mean, I guess that's a fair point. Garlic is gone. Garlic, you get like two a bats.
Speaker 1 00:12:20 Yeah. There's a few games where he has two, a bats and he's pulled. So
Speaker 2 00:12:23 He has six home runs. Six of his nine home runs have come against left east garlic.
Speaker 1 00:12:27 I'm gonna put stone in the lineup at 2,400.
Speaker 2 00:12:29 Yeah. I'm cool with that. Well that, and then that kind of pencils us in for double spend up because that's against mania
Speaker 1 00:12:35 Who are yeah. Yeah.
Speaker 2 00:12:36 That's true. I'm look, I think, you know where I would go. I would go Michella, overco. I think that there's some sneaky pirate upside. Not that I wanna like use Pittsburgh necessarily our lineup. No, I, I
Speaker 1 00:12:47 Like if we go Michel, Alaska, but colors with KA Garrett at the moment we have 4k a player
Speaker 2 00:12:53 And we're we probably go. So I think, well, before we get into it, we'll do our yeah.
Speaker 1 00:12:58 Gimme your home run. Call.
Speaker 2 00:12:59 We're rolling with the home run calls. By the way. I
Speaker 1 00:13:01 Hope we usually one of us gets it. Right. So, and I know we just kind of skimmed through the outfield. There's again, there's not a lot of outfielders. We like, you know, we're playing Miko ass, but if you're not going MES, like we like Freele we all the, we like frailly
Speaker 2 00:13:14 Every Astro that wears the Astros Jersey. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:13:17 All
Speaker 2 00:13:17 Astros, all these lefties. Some of the lefty crushers are fine. Like garlic and tournaments. If you're playing, Minnesota is fine. Yep. They're fine. See Dick 2,800 John. I think that's a good one.
Speaker 1 00:13:28 Guess blue baker.
Speaker 2 00:13:29 No, they get oh Anderson chase Anderson
Speaker 1 00:13:32 Tomorrow. Yeah, I agree. All right. I'll put that in
Speaker 2 00:13:34 There. Well, I wasn't saying we had to, but like no, that's a nice salary save.
Speaker 1 00:13:37 Might he hit fifth the other day? I mean you get middle of the line exposure.
Speaker 2 00:13:40 So I
Speaker 1 00:13:41 Think do we play, Kelly gave me your home run call. Let's finish that up. I go the line home
Speaker 2 00:13:45 Run call. I'm gonna go with Carlos KA. We already got him in the line.
Speaker 1 00:13:49 Uh, home run for me.
Speaker 2 00:13:52 Actually. I kind of wanna go cut.
Speaker 1 00:13:53 We go Bregman.
Speaker 2 00:13:54 Oh yeah. I know. I kind of wanna go Tucker. I kind of like the outros more than I like the Cardinals.
Speaker 1 00:14:00 I'm not sitting here against it.
Speaker 2 00:14:02 Tucker three home runs in those last four dude home bro. He's just like
Speaker 1 00:14:07 Thing is we don't we need some really cheap players to get
Speaker 2 00:14:11 Sanchez. Gary Sanchez.
Speaker 1 00:14:13 I thought we, you like acentric I thought you didn't like a Sanchez.
Speaker 2 00:14:16 I guess. I, well it's Kelly and Kelly both have Stu. It's not. I feel like we're we're like, how
Speaker 1 00:14:23 About this? Who's giving up. I feel like I would rather play Kelly than Sanchez then.
Speaker 2 00:14:27 Okay. I'm fine with that because we're gonna probably spend down to Jose Miranda, right? Yeah. At we can go Miranda at first. Yeah. So
Speaker 1 00:14:34 4,700 a player.
Speaker 2 00:14:35 You go, how give be
Speaker 1 00:14:36 $6,400.
Speaker 2 00:14:38 Well, so here, what are your thoughts here? I have an, I have an idea. Okay. So we go Brandon Donovan to get our top of the order of St. Louis exposure. Okay. Then we go, we're so close to Tucker Bregman. Yeah.
Speaker 1 00:14:54 We're 300 bucks
Speaker 2 00:14:54 Off. You know where we go? We go to Gary Sanchez.
Speaker 1 00:14:57 Yeah. That's true. All right. That's fine.
Speaker 2 00:14:59 I mean it doesn't no. Or we go Yachty wasn't
Speaker 1 00:15:01 Yacht. I agree. I agree. I don't know. I wouldn't know where else to go here. There's yadi. Oh, Yachty. Yeah. I'll play yadi. Uh, yeah. Let's play yadi.
Speaker 2 00:15:08 I feel like ultimately the upside would be
Speaker 1 00:15:13 Like, does he have it in him? Like, I don't know. I don't, I
Speaker 2 00:15:16 Don't know. I think Sanchez probably like 10 years younger Sanchez. Like I don't care. You pick between yadi and Sanchez, but I mean, you also like, do you like the rest of that line? Like is the rest of the
Speaker 1 00:15:28 Line? Yeah. Lower. The line is fine. Give me
Speaker 2 00:15:30 Like we have a stack up either.
Speaker 1 00:15:32 I'm gonna go.
Speaker 2 00:15:34 We have a three man of either. I
Speaker 1 00:15:36 Know. Where do we hit Sanchez
Speaker 2 00:15:38 Tonight? He hit near the end of the lineup. I'll tell you right now. E added 6 1 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 Miranda hit. Fourth. KARE hit. Second Miranda hit. Third Sanchez hit. So a 2, 3, 6, potentially. We're
Speaker 1 00:15:58 Looking at and what is Sanchez hitting at lefties this
Speaker 2 00:16:00 Year? Not good.
Speaker 1 00:16:01 Not you don't even want
Speaker 2 00:16:02 Say no, it's no, it's bad. He has three home runs. He's also not hitting at home. I was trying to like really just drive a point home. Not doing that either. And he's one for nine off of, I think there's nothing. There's nothing that suggests we should play him. Yadi. Melina is or play Yachty.
Speaker 1 00:16:20 What's his BVP verse. Chase. What is it? We're
Speaker 2 00:16:22 Playing Yachty. We're playing him.
Speaker 1 00:16:23 What's his BVP.
Speaker 2 00:16:24 He's six for 19, which is a three 16 average with a home run. Okay. Late at the end of the tunnel, six for 19. All I needed to see easy. We're running all I needed to see
Speaker 1 00:16:35 Easy enough. All right. So there it is. That's our line. Lance of colors. Miles, Nicholas yadi, Melina catcher, Jose Miranda, Brandon Donovan, Alex Bregman. First, second, third Koray stone. Garrett, Corey Dickerson, Kyle Tucker in the outfield. We got a two man Houston stack. We got a three man. An interesting three man. Cardinal stack. We got a, we got a, uh, a one off. No, we got two man, Minnesota stack the aray and me. So one off stone, Garrett. We
Speaker 2 00:17:05 A one off stone. Garrett. Let's go stone.
Speaker 1 00:17:07 Alrighty. So that's where we're at. That's it? Five games. Everybody we'll be in the discord. If you have any questions, James and I we'll catch you guys later.
