MLB Takeoff 8/28: Let's Try This Again


Note: The Boogie Factor has officially been launched. I want to give you a better understanding about this metric. It's something that we've been working on since the end of 2019 season. It's a metric that takes every single factor into account. We are talking about EVERYTHING. Exit velocity, Average batted ball distance, weather, stadium, air density, expected wOBA, not only ISO, but expected weighted ISOs, K%, matchup, XwOBA, XFIP, Money Lines, Oddsmakers expectations, etc. There isn't one category that will be unaccounted for. The only * I would put for now, is give it time to soak in a larger 2020 sample and we should be seeing amazing results for the rest of the season.


**We're gearing up for our first 2020 podcast coming soon! (sorry for the delay, just waiting on a shipment to come in). We'll be collecting any questions you may have until then. Here is the place to drop in your questions https://docs.google.com/forms/d/e/1FAIpQLSep3xAZ_gDFKiUmkilpPfBSymkRnc5Gr8jEUZ1oZgfJ-o2w6w/viewform?usp=sf_link


So after the last 3 days of uncertainty in our DFS bubble you'd think we'd catch a break right? Ha! Well, welcome to 2020 where nothing has gone to plan. Tonight is probably the most rain heavy forecast I have come across while breaking down DFS over the last couple years. As of now there are currently 6(!) games expected to see rain so who knows what is going to be thrown our way tonight. Maybe if all of our subs do the rain dance tonight we can shake this rain & have somewhat of a normal slate.
