The Dongers Club - September 5th

Thursday, September 5th

With College and Pro Football seasons here and that demand it puts on me (and desire honestly for College) I won't be having an article on the weekends going forward. FantasyBum will have the Saturday MLB coverage for you though.

  • Seven games tonight, a few starting new series
  • All games play without weather concerns
  • Pitching sucks.
  • Hitting sucks.
  • Lets get weird.
  • Mark Trumbeauuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuux

Ewwww.... I am not playing Stephen Strasburg for 11k+ in Atlanta, no sir. I am not using the sucker play of a pitcher in the Marlins-Pirates or Rangers-Orioles games, so that quickly narrows it down to this list.

Wade Miley

Houston at home against Seattle. Not to be that guy but... well, I'm gonna be that guy. He fits, he's a favorite, good splits vs Seattle. Miley is the play.

Austin Pruitt

Tampa is gonna murder Thornton (this time for sure), and Pruitt has pitched very well despite not being stretched out into a long guy. Perfect for this slate.

Chase Anderson

Chase Anderson ... Guess who is better than the Cubs away from home right now? Pretty much everyone. But they go into Miller Park where Schwarber and Rizzo have had success, but not against Chase Anderson. He's been very consistent against the core of the Cubs team and although he likely only pitches 5 or at best 6 innings, on a shitty pitching slate tonight I'd take a shot with him.

STACK OF THE DAY

BALTIMORE ORIOLES

Let's get weird. A team with nothing to play for against another team with nothing to play for. This game either ends up 1-0 and cancelled for being such a shit show or it's a bananaland game around 10-8 with the Orioles being the team nobody saw coming dropping a ton of runs. With Trumbo back he's sure to try and make himself known as still in the major leagues and probably jacks two bombs out tonight off the Rangers.

OTHER TEAMS TO TARGET

ATLANTA BRAVES

There are two games tonight that feature two teams who are really battling it out. Well, two and a half if you count Minny/Boston, which I don't. The Braves/Nationals game to me is the over game and the Cubs/Brewers game is the under game. Love the Braves side to take the first game here but I expect both sides to do well in this ballpark today. Atlanta the sneaky/contrarian side against Strasburg.

TAMPA BAY RAYS

Screw Trent Thornton and his funky glasses. He might have figured out how to not be horrific for a while but eventually seeing the same team over and over will flip back to what it was early in the season and thats Tampa destroying Thornton with their lefty bats.

SNEAKY STACK OF THE DAY

Yo. I wrote up the fucking Baltimore Orioles as the stack of the night. Are you not getting weird enough with that? And if you dont like it, then just remind yourself that you have like 5 showdown lineups in tonight which feature a backup TE for the Chicago Bears and the Packers 4th WR as sharp plays and then come back to me and tell me an Orioles stack on a Thursday in September of 2019 is getting degenerative ok?
