Takeoff 8/15: Mid Size Slate, Large Size Leverage


Note: The day we have been waiting for has arrived. Boogie Factor has been published. I wanted to give you all a better understanding about this metric. It's one that me and my tech guru have 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 is not 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 soon enough.


**We're gearing up for our first podcast coming next week! We'll be collecting all your questions and provide further information over the next couple of days**


Primary Arms


P.Corbin: Far and away the best overall option going. Besides the usual impressive arsenal and stats, Corbin stands out even more thanks to the lack of talent in today's pitching options. It behooves the Nats to let Corbin reach his max pitch count after yesterday's taxing bullpen day.


W.Buehler: So I originally had Buehler scheduled to fall down to the Secondary Tier but after seeing early ownership all the way down to 8% DK, 14% FD, I'm a lot more excited about this. If we were basing today's options on strictly talent, Walker would be my #1 arm. He's a legit top 5-10 SP talent in this league and I'm trusting his larger career sample over his 14 innings this season. My true one concern is LAD's quick hook with their SP and cautious approach. Given that he at least reached 87 last time out, I'll be thrilled with a 95 pitch night from the young phenom.
