Daily DraftKings Picks: Thursday, May 21

On Tuesday I recommended a Rangers stack at Wade Miley and the Red Sox with the wind blowing out to left field. I also recommended Anibal Sanchez against the Brewers. Well, the Rangers were so-so and Sanchez blew up for about -7 points. Below is a screenshot of Tuesday’s Official Lineup with one notable change — it has James Shields instead of Sanchez. Why am I showing the Shields...

Tigers' Sanchez stingy at home against NL opponents

Anibal Sanchez has been tough to score on in winning three interleague home starts with the Detroit Tigers. His opponent is a pitcher who has a 3-12 record as a starter, with no wins in his last six. Sanchez figures to have an edge over the Milwaukee Brewers' Jimmy Nelson in Tuesday night's matchup (6 p.m. pregame, 7:08 first pitch on FOX Sports Detroit). Detroit (23-16) seeks to...

Detroit Tigers insane day/night splits a sign of trouble?

You may have already noticed something weird about the Detroit Tigers this year. You may have even read about it a week or so ago when Chris Iott of MLive covered it. And to quote Nick Miller from Fox’s New Girl – “You want weird? I’ll give you weird!” If you think the Tigers play better in day games, well that’s because they do. If you think Miguel Cabrera is doing all...

Royals Cruise to Victory Behind Unlikely Hero in Jeremy Guthrie

Anibal Sanchez owns the Royals. Detroit owns the Kansas City Royals version of Jeremy Guthrie (but not as much as I thought). The Royals won, of course. Because, Baseball. Sanchez’s last start against the Royals (last Sunday) was the first time in eight starts against the Royals that he had allowed more than one earned run, it increased his career ERA to 1.40 against KC (6...

Royals Drop Finale to Detroit, Settle for Series Split

Anibal Sanchez continued to dominate the Royals, even if he actually allowed more than one run in Sunday's outing. The Tigers' offense finally broke out, scoring more runs on Sunday than they did in the first three games of the series together en route to a 6-4 victory over the Royals. A steady arsenal of hits against Jeremy Guthrie did the trick for Detroit; it banged out 11...

Detroit Tigers: Previewing the Twins series

After a less than stellar week against the New York Yankees and the Cleveland Indians, the Detroit Tigers travel to Minnesota to take on the Twins for a 3 game series to open the week. The Tigers have faced the Twins one other time already this season when they opened 2015 with 3 efficient beat-downs of Minnesota. Since then the Tigers went on to win 6 of their next 7 as well as...

Sanchez continues to struggle late in loss to White Sox

DETROIT -- Anibal Sanchez doesn't understand why his performance takes a nose dive in the seventh inning. Tuesday, it wasn't even his fault. Against the White Sox, he took a 2-2 tie into the seventh inning, and gave up three runs while only getting one out. Joakim Soria followed with a meltdown in his home debut, and the Tigers ended up allowing seven runs in the inning en route...
