MLB Takeoff 9/7: Quality Control

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.

With so many quality arms on today's slate, it's going to be important to find the one or two that stick out and make all the difference for us tonight. We'll shoot updates out to you guys via slack as the day goes on. If you haven't joined us in our slack channel, make sure to send us an e-mail or shoot our Twitter account @boogiedaily a DM so we can get you in there!

Primary Arms

Z.Gallen: It hasn't mattered who the opponent has been for Gallen because all he has done this season, & really his entire career thus far is go out and dominate. He just recently set the MLB record for the most consecutive starts (23) to kick off a career with allowed 3 runs or less. His matchup (SFG) tonight isn't the challenge I'm concerned about, it's the weather in San Fran that he may have an issue with. The wind tonight will be blowing out to LF at 16
