Daily Fantasy MLB Thread

Recommended Posts

Hello OH Members -

I was curious about creating a thread about posting daily fantasy MLB lineups, information, tips, etc. There's gotta be a bunch of people on here that either play on FanDuel or Draftkings.

Before I created it, I was thinking about asking the forum as well as getting approval from the moderators as some view this as "gambling".

Anyways - If there is already a thread about this or the moderators will not allow, I will delete this post. However, if I get approval I will create a new thread.

Happy Monday everyone!

:beerchug1::thumbsup1::boogie::2yay-thumb:

Sincerely,

Mayor McCheese

'Mayor of McDonaldland and I approve this posting.'

In theory it's just like any other form of fantasy sports, and we have a forum just for that. Just because DFS tends to revolve around contests with cash prizes doesn't mean it should be considered a gambling thread. Also for all Tony knows we could just all be playing the free contests :)

And that's not considering that DFS is like poker, a game of skill (I would argue). Though it certainly has a little more variance than say texas hold'em.

I am a big DFS player during football and basketball season. Haven't played too much during baseball but I've tried it, using the spend big on pitchers and spend little on hitters strategy (take hitters in Coors field if a game is there).

I got screwed tonight as I had Machado, Wilson, Rickard, and Lester in my lineup. My phone died and I couldn't get it going to swap them out before the rainout. I had a good weekend, but typically I bring home 50 cents per dollar spent.

Rumors and News

    • Don't recall but his throw back to second base after the WS catch off Vic Wertz held the runner at first (I believe), they say.  Of course, no-one would hold the bag seeing that ball flight.  And the urban legend above may have been aided by the runner having to go back to tag up.  I lost him once they moved West - never seeing him much.  The old shots of him climbing the chain link fence in CF at the old "Stick" were memorable though.
    • It's a good point you raise, but I don't think the fallout would be any worse than Arrietta's success once he was shipped out.  I don't know... I just don't feel that he is the veteran leader a young team might need to look to given how little he seems to have worked before the season started and the futility of the "changes" he's made during the season to improve.  The whole tale about how much he worked in the offseason and the contradictions, therein, worry me about him being the type of player Adam Jones was to our upstart club once Buck arrived. I just don't think you DFA him, which they should do if they can't find a buyer.  Even paying 80% of his contract is better than just casting him off having to foot the whole bill.  But as someone said, it is money that has theoretically already been spent.  Either way, I just don't see him here next season.
    • There is a play that Mays is supposed to have made, that might be an urban legend. Catch at the deep park of CF and fires a strike to home plate, no bounce and gets an speedy runner out.
    • Willie was my idol growing up - loved the way he played the game - one of the first to show emotion and flair as he chased down fly balls and ran out (yes ran out) hits!  His cap flew off, he made basket catches and his hook slides into bases were dream worthy!  I would disagree with @Tx Oriole that Ruth was greatest, even though he never saw him play.  I saw Mays play.  WAR?  What is that - absolutely nothing!  (Edwin Starr)
    • My grandfather lived in Oakland, but was a huge Willie Mays fan, and talks about how he was a better ball player than even Babe Ruth. Something the WAR prove otherwise. Those WARs they produced were unreal.  
    • Yeah not good.  We had Mays, HOF'er Monte Irvin, who could cover ground, but also Don Mueller, "Dusty" Rhodes and Bobby Thomson (among others) who weren't so swift.
