MLB Takeoff 9/25: CY YU


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.


If you have been riding with us throughout this entire MLB season, I want to sincerely thank you for sticking with us & giving us a shot. In the blink of an eye we have already approached the last week of the season. Lets close out this MLB season out with a BANG!



Primary Arms


Y.Darvish: Has a matchup with the cross-town rivals (CWS) as he tries to put the finishing touches on what has been a CY Young season for Darvish. Darvish actually had his worst start of the season last time out as it was the first time all season he gave up more than 3 ER (4ER vs. MIN), & he still managed to strike out 9 Twins hitters. Although the CWS have been really good this season, they have actually hit a skid since clinching their post season birth going 2-7 since then & one of their best hitters (Jimenez) is now day-to-day with an injury. I expect Darvish & his 32% K rate to bounce back in grand fashion tonight.
