@  Friday 8:08 EST

Game one of the ALCS will feature left-handed Dallas Keuchel on the mound for the Astros against right-handed Masahiro Tanaka for the Yankees. This is a tough matchup for both pitchers as both the Yankees and Astros feature elite offenses, but choosing between the two pitchers is relatively easy for me

UPDATE: The Nats got a break from the rain delay, Stephan Strasburg is now able to start and is becomes the number 2 SP on the short slate (raw point projection). His 29% K rate against both right and left handed bats is ELITE. In his two starts against the Cubs he has pitched 14 innings, allowing just 7 hits and striking out 23. He was one of the hottest pitchers coming into the post season (40 K's in 32 innings/.192 wOBA), and there is no reason to think he won't keep it going today with the wind blowing in.

Pitching Max Scherzer - Starting pitching has been pretty bad so far this postseason so that makes me want to pay up for Mad Max here.  You wont find another pitcher who pitches with more emotion then Scherzer and as long as his hamstring is fine i think he shows out this afternoon.

 MLB Postseason Rundown - 10/5

Note: This is what DraftCheat wrote yesterday about the games with my updates in red. Keep in mind that every starter in the Wild Card game ended up being a bad play, so using a reliever in playoff slates is something that I’ve done at times. The team that wins almost always uses their closer at some point if he’s rested (they all are).


(LHP Chris Sale) @ (RHP Justin Verlander) 4:08 EST Thursday

This should be a fantastic matchup between two aces in Chris Sale and Justin Verlander who both have pitched fantastically for most of the season yet have very challenging matchups here. The Astros are one of the best offenses in MLB and are fully healthy at the moment

 MLB Postseason Rundown - 10/3
Posted by DraftCheat on Tuesday, October 3, 2017 - 13:59

The MLB Playoffs are upon us! Both FanDuel and DraftKings are offering fairly substantial GPPs for this Tuesday-Wednesday two game slate featuring the Twins at the Yankees and the Rockies at the Diamondbacks. These games are winner take all, so we’ll see different strategies employed by the managers, with much earlier trips to the bullpen if the starters are struggling (especially in the Twins/Yankees game). Because there are just two games and they are so unique compared to what we see during the regular season, I’ll be breaking down each game in-depth and not simply listing specific plays. There is a lot of game theory that goes into trying to win some of these tournaments, so hopefully you can get some unique ideas from this article.
