The Dongers Club - August 30th

Friday, August 30th

Fourteen game slate tonight. Likely won't be doing any late afternoon updates and thoughts on ownership. To me there is a clear cut path on your roster construction tonight and it's all around hitting. Limited high end SP on this slate and most aren't in smash spots for my mind with the likely highest owned being one I am attacking in a sneaky spot.

  • Rain in STL between Reds and Cards to monitor. I dont like the pitchers anyways.

Max Fried ... You can either play Anibal Sanchez vs the pesky Marlins in a good hitters park or play Max Fried against a team who cant hit lefties very well in Atlanta. Both are dangerous. I prefer Fried.

Kyle Gibson ... We're back to that point where we might get called into the principals office for picking on the poor little kids and by that I mean the Detroit Tigers.

Anibal Sanchez ... I prefer Fried a lot more, partially ownership but also I just trust Fried vs Chicago more than Anibal in a division game against the pesky Marlins. Yes, pesky Marlins.

STACK OF THE NIGHT

Houston Astros - Springer, Brantley, Alvarez, Legend of Toro, Chirinos

Because we don't have to pay for pitching I am running straight to Toronto to play Houston on the road vs the Jays pitching staff. Load the hell up on Yordan Alvarez ladies and gentlemen. It's Trent Thornton so load up the lefties obviously but there's plenty of logic to play 5 Astros tonight and well, it is Friday, so you know what to do at catcher.

OTHER TEAMS TO TARGET

Colorado Rockies - Blackmon, Arenado, McMahon

Coors gonna Coors. Pirates and Rockies two bad bullpens, once again likely producing all the runs. Heavy lean on the Colorado side tonight. This game smells like a 10-3 game by the third inning in favor of Colorado and then it dies.

Minnesota Twins - Rosario, Cruz, Polanco

While Edwin Jackson has had a couple decent starts here and there, you shouldn't start him against the Twins IMO. Real in depth analysis there right? Love the Twinkies against a dead man walking team in Detroit.

Oakland Athletics - Semien, Chapman, Olson, Canha

So the Yankees are likely going to draw some chalk tonight and it's the wrong side. Bet Oakland and play their guys for their HR upside in this tiny park against Sabathia.

SNEAKY STACK OF THE NIGHT

New York Mets - Big Pete, Water Buffalo (Ramos) and Flying Squirrel (McNeil)

We get the Mets in their first game in Philly, a trend that I have been riding for a while now and one that really doesn't carry a ton of weight beyond a gut feel. Cold team who needs to get away from home to maybe try and get their minds right to get a resurgence back into the playoffs. Picking on Nola might seem stupid, but the sneaky stack of the night section is not about doing what feels right or safe, hence why it is sneaky and something you won't find anywhere else.
