DraftKings: Rollin’, Rollin’, Rollin’ Arenado

On Sunday, Nolan Arenado broke out of a mini-slump and hit his first home run since August 8. He couldn't have asked for a better matchup this week than the one that he gets on Tuesday night against Chase Anderson and the Brewers. This game is on the road, so it doesn't have quite the positive effect on hitters, but Miller Park is one of the more hitter friendly parks in the league...

Charlie Blackmon Has Zeroed In

It’s been observed before we don’t write that much about the Rockies. Now, this is one of those things that works both ways — we could probably stand to write about them more, but there also hasn’t been much in the way of demand.
