The Takeoff 7.01.19


Hate all pitchers today so here's a pic of "Cool Raul" you can find him leaving weird messages over on the forums




Pitcher Rankings


Logan Allen (9.3 FD, 9.2 DK): He has the best possible matchup on the entire slate and it's not close. Logan has flashed some impressive stuff so far in his short career, specifically a nice changeup. Today he faces off against a Giants team who is DEAD LAST across the board vs. lefties. SFG has the lowest woba, lowest iso, lowest wRC+, and has only homered a combined 17 times all season vs. left-handed pitchers. They also strikeout at a 24.8% clip. Playable everywhere



Ryan Yarbrough (6.6 FD, 6.5 DK): Good play especially on DK where there is no points for QS, his pitch count last time he pitched in one of these "Come out the 2nd inning starter plan" he went for 90+ pitches and 6 innings. He has a .265 wOBA and a .125 ISO vs RHBs and keeps the ball on ground (44.4% GB). Facing off against a BAL team that has a 25.9% K rate vs. lefties. Playable in all sites and format.


Mike Minor (10.8 FD, 10.5 DK): The best pitcher going today, but the issue here is the price and the weather he will be pitching in. I'll get further into this soon.



Cheaper GPP Plays/ Punts: Jeff Samardzija (This is how you know how bad pitching is today), Suarez, Alzolay, Mahle (contrarian play is all he would be, he's been close to great against RHBs but MIL has some scary lefties)


Last Tier that I might include in GPP pools but that I vomited before:


Williams (not good and not terrible but priced a little higher than he should be in a tough matchup), Houser (pitch count is what mostly worries me)
