P- Noah Syndergaard (vs. Miami Marlins): $10,400. Syndergaard is coming off a very impressive 2016 debut where he went 6 innings, giving up 3 hits, 9 strikeouts, 0 runs, and a win versus the reigning World Series Champs, the Kansas City Royals. Today will be his first appearance against the Miami Marlins, which I think will bode in his favor considering he has some of the nastiest stuff in the big leagues and the Marlins have never seen it before. Even if he does get hit around, his strikeout potential will help gain tons of points.
P- Hector Santiago (vs. Oakland A’s): $6,900. I can’t say I’m super excited about this pick, but the pitching match ups for 4/12 are nothing to get excited about. Santiago seemed to be the best value to be able to spread out my money elsewhere. He has showed some decent success against the A’s in his career posting a .266 opposing batting average, 3.14 ERA, and a 8.5 K/9 rate. The Athletics offense is nothing special, so I’m hoping Santiago can limit the damage and put up a decent strikeout rate.

With one week in the books, let’s take a look at what Milwaukee Brewers fans have learned so far.
This isn’t last year’s team. GM David Stearns ran off nine trades that netted 16 players after taking the job last year. Stearns has repeatedly said he’s looking to stock up on pitchers – not just arms – but pitchers that throw strikes and get ahead in the count. Stearns also feels the Brewers outfield has a lot of depth and is an area of strength. So if this isn’t the 2015 team that went 68-94, then what can fans expect?
The Tigers play a 4-game home and home vs. the Pittsburgh Pirates with both teams coming off a loss in the last appearance. This year we’ve changed up the series previews and would like to hear of other interesting facts/stats that you’d like to see included. We’re currently using 2015 stats to populate some of the graphs, which will change over to 2016 once a strong enough data set if available.

Hi, my name is Josh Robbins. I would like to share my Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) strategy with you throughout the MLB season on weekdays. Fanduel is my preferred game of skill.
Welcome to the 2nd week of the 2016 MLB season.
3-Strikes: Here’s what you expect from my daily articles:
My Top 3 Starting Pitchers (aces, mid-level, bargain)
My Top 3 Stacking Options (multiple players from the same team)

The Tigers had a nice week of 3 – 1 to start the year. Miguel Cabrera and he offense looked good. The Starting Pitching was given a massive lift with Jordan Zimmermann doling out a Shutout on the Comerica Park opener Friday. In a competitive AL Central, the Motown Boys should still be in contention for a playoff spot all year, and be given respect. Instead, clubs are ahead of them in the AL that shouldn’t be. At +2200 they are a bargain. They are the best bet on the board this week. Having them ranked tied for 14th right now is not where I would put them at.

There is some lunacy in scheduling games in places we know will be cold and miserable.
And somehow I tie in the baseball season to how TV networks do their shows now.
